The dumbest idea floated in the humiliating aftermath of Lane Kiffin telling the Tennessee Volunteers goodbye just might be from the infamous Tennstud. On Gridscape the oracle of Tennessee football suggested, “Hire Ed Orgeron, NOW!! The players said that Ed was more or less the head coach, anyway. We know what a great recruiter he is and UT needs a recruiter much more than any other so called elite program, in the SEC! He can’t, couldn’t, turn it down!! It’s a desperate, but home run, for us. NO OTHER coach can salvage, save, go forward, as well as Ed Orgeron can. Hire Ed Orgeron, not for my sake, not for your sake, but for UT’s sake!!”
I know I can speak for the rest of the SEC when I say, Please dear God let it be so!
Orgeron is a bigger dumbass and incompetent than Lane Kiffin—I know that is hard to believe, but ask any Ole Miss fan. Orgeron makes Ole Miss fans wish David Cutcliffe had been retained. Speaking of Cutcliffe, one tweet tonight from various sources raised the possibility of Cutcliffe as a candidate for the Tennessee job.
That would be a wise move. Cutcliffe could heal the rift in the Volunteer family. There are many Vols that still resent how Phil Fulmer was treated. Cutcliffe would restore integrity to the Tennessee program, and might appease the NCAA by showing that the Volunteers are once again serious about NCAA compliance.
