Word here in Oklahoma is Tennessee flew to get Gundy. He makes somewhere around 4.5 mil and rumor has it Tenn offered 8 mil. Let's face it. He gets TX talent after OU and the rest of the TX schools. That won't get any better. At Tenn he will have better recruiting grounds. IMHO.

Interesting scenario. Has T. Boone Pickens ever been outbid at anything?

Also, I wonder if Tennessee isn't in a rather a similar situation to Okie State, kind of the close-sniffing second tier school in the land of SEC giants.

Maybe we can convince T.Boone to bid on Dave Beaty if Gundy leaves Zero State? They could get him on the cheap, and the Pokes have enough talent that he might actually beat an FBS opponent and even win a road game!

Then comes year four and the bottom will drop out...but Pickens isn't getting any younger, so it might just work!

Recruiting hasn't really been the issue there as poor coaching. I think their last two recruiting classes were in the top 10. I think the pressure is higher at Tenn. then OSU.

The cowboy fans would just love watching Beaty teams punting on 4th and short on the opponent's 35 yard line!

8 million for a team that hasn't been relevant for 20 years. Wait...is this Tennessee or Nebraska we're talking about?

Yeah really. The glory days are over in Lincoln. Maybe Jack Frost can turn it around but recruits don't remember the glory days as they were too young.

The $ probably wasn't guaranteed.

Who would want that dumpster fire. They're going to pay the guy from Ohio State 20 million NOT to coach there.

Gundy tweeted "Cowboy for Life" I just don't understand. every year he takes off looking at other job openings. Does it boost his own ego? He needs to quit it.

There's a fair number of boosters tired of losing to the Gooners far to often. Getting restless. This was supposed to be the year to really elevate the program. High profile guys stayed for one more year. Came up short. Again.

tennessee ran off phil fulmer. consider that when making your 'came up short' analysis for others.

T. Boone sees it and more oil shares head his way.
