    Are you suggesting Food Cart isn't ready for the public pressure of a job in Knoxville, Tennessee?

    It will be fun to see BJ dressed up like a big orange turd.

    They better fly to Cincy with a copy of the contract for him to sign tonight. A better job might open up while he's in the air if they don't.... :lol:

    Re: Jones to Tennessee (unconfirmed)

    If this happens, I'll have another SEC team that I can truly hate.

    Are we still blaming Bohn?

    The worst part about this whole thing is that he ended up getting a great job.

    I hope he goes 0-12.

    Arguably the 4th best job in the SEC East. And he has the pleasure of playing Bama every year.

    Yep. Checked out a vol message board and they expect him to be Dooley 2.0. He'll be gone in 3 years.

    Oh Sh$t. That is hilarious. Bohn stands around like an idiot hiding him and throwing out numbers when in 48 hours Jones should have said yes or no. In 48 hours Bohn should have said thanks for coming or we are moving on; good luck. He's playing everybody he deals with. Cincy didn't come up with the money and he was probably looking to see who else wants him. ESPN college football this afternoon was discussing what a great coach he is and how we missed out. Well welcome to the SEC. You fit in. You just went from barely filling your stadium to 108,000 angry ass people.

    Posted this last night:

    Have to believe the delay is to wait on a Wisconsin or Tenn offer. He knows what UC and CU are bringing to the table.

    50% chance of him going to Wisconsin or Tenn if offered

    50% chance of coming to CU and deal is already done

    0% chance he stays at UC

    You don't interview twice in 2 days if you're looking to stay.

    He's a shark. That's business. We didn't dodge a bullet, we just didn't hire a shark.

    Lot of families involved in this decision.

    Remember folks. Cracker Barrel was founded in Tennessee. There were signs.

    Coulda, woulda, shouldas, but....
    1) Should've had the contarct signed before he left Boulder
    2) Should've been interviewing the Plan B when BJ was stringing us along - that tweet from Goodman late yesterday that said CU hadn't even asked permission to interview a potential Plan B yet is disturbing

    The placing all the eggs in one basket is very amateur and just look at the national media -we are a joke. So yes, Bohn gets no pass from me.

    as to #2; you and I don't know squat it, but there are rumors that other candidates were interviewed during the Butchwatch. and you are smart enough to know that the "CU hasn't officially talked to X" nonsense is worthless. When did Arkansas officially talk to Bielema? When he signed on the damned line.

    SO you may be right, but you can't know that yet.

    Now, if this takes another 2 weeks - you got a point :lol:

    Since I'm a Gator as well as a Buff...just another reason to spit on Tennessee, as far as I'm concerned...

    Perception is reality...that's all I'm sayin. And the perception of CU nationally is in the toilet - Bohn has a huge part in that (plus Distef and Benson)

    Eh - Butch is helping us out on this now with the Tenn talk. If he had resigned at UC - disaster.

    "Hi Coach DeRuyter, this is Mike Bohn from the University of Colorado."
    ...

    "We're doing great here, thanks. Weather is incredible for December. Say, we would like to talk to you about being our next football coach here at Colorado."
    ...
    "What's that? Well, yes, to be honest we have been speaking to Coach Jones."
    ...
    "Well, yes, again to be honest, we have made him an offer."
    ...
    "Well, that's a good question Coach. The fact is, we aren't 100% sure if he's going to take the job. So we would like to speak to you."
    ...
    "Well, Coach, that's true, unfortunately. Our media did seem to get involved in that situation more than we had hoped."
    ...
    "We'll sure do our best not to let that happen when you come in, Coach. Complete media silence."
    ...
    "I understand, Coach. I'm sure your players wouldn't be very happy if they found out about it."
    ...
    "Right, or your recruits. I sure understand that, Coach. But we would certainly like to talk to you and show you around the campus."
    ....
    "I understand, Coach. Can I give you a call back when we've got a little more certainty about what Coach Jones' plans are?"
    ...
    "Well, thanks for going easy on us when we were out in Fresno this past year, Coach. Sorry we couldn't work something out."
    ...

    Yeah, I can't imagine why Bohn isn't pursuing that plan. Incompetent bastard! :lol:

    now, if he signs for less than we offered, I'm gonna kill a fool.

    How f'ing stupid would you have to be at this point to confirm the status of Coach Jones and anybody until he signs a contract? :lol:

    I've heard that Kirby Smart was top candidate. DC out of national powerhouse-NC winner-contender for ?? 6 seasons ?? But a city-college coach is their top dog?

    Well, if so, that says a WHOLE lot about Tenn and it's possible future. "NOT MUCH!" And a DC at a rival school would know that.

    Now we know why he stayed down in Carolina longer yesterday. The ****er was meeting with UT reps. Dude was triple timing UC and CU.
