The gE reaction if Currie goes and hires Venables would be highly entertaining though.

Doesn't fit Currie's criteria. I also am not sure they would want him. Tennessee fans think they have the best open job.

Tennessee Curdog fires his football coach.  He wants a new one who has character.  Sean?

Based on past history, who do think JC has as his top candidates?

Tennessee fans seem more delusional than Nebraska fans when it comes to their place in the CFB landscape. 3rd best job in their division and maybe the 7th in their conference.

Butch Jones would be his #1 candidate at another school. Mike Reilly probs moves to #1 when the Nubs fire him in a few weeks.

Others off the top of my head: Les Miles, Helfrich, Tracy Claeys?, Sumlin (when he's canned soon)

Currie is finally getting his shot at a football hire

He's gonna knock it out too, Matt Campbell or Scott Frost.

I think this is what the Nebraska coaching searching does, and should, look like. Frost being an obvious candidate but I wonder if he’d take the job - getting the players for that offense in Nebraska seems like a decent challenge. I think Matt Campbell would be a great fit in Lincoln.

Tennessee is about to put $340 million into stadium upgrades.  I'm not sure I'd call them 7th in the conference, but could see 3rd in the east.  The school has a lot of upside, amazing setting, (great hill to look upon, even though you can't see them from in the stadium), crap loads of growth on campus (huge student union project), and some pretty good talent around them.  For sure though, the people here think they are on the verge of competing with Bama with just a HC change.  It's a little bit odd to see their expectations.  Bu that is what happens when you have years of the SEC is best nonsense.

It's incredible how much campus has changed. It's not much of an exaggeration to say that they're in the process of tearing most buildings down and putting new ones in their place. They'll leave the core buildings on the Hill, but a lot of buildings have been torn down.

At worst, they'll hire a B list candidate who'll win 7 or 8 games a year. Unfortunately, the stadium will always fill up for those type of seasons. It's why I think it's unlikely that we'll hire one of the A listers, like Gruden, Kelly, Patterson, Petersen, Mullen, Franklin, etc. I'll believe it when I see it.

You are absolutely right on the B list hire big orange, the Currie formula at KState was
1. Previous head coaching experience
2. At least a similar resume to the coach he fired

Currie is a numbers guy that will look for the guy that looks good on paper and he is not going to move heaven and earth to get A lister because he doesn't want a coach that could out leverage him.

Currie might hire Les Miles. Les is probably the best coach for the job, anyway.

He made good coaching hires here, he clearly could have done better than oscar, although I think the program turns the proverbial corner this year. People will dismiss it because for some reason women's basketball doesn't count, but it was gangsta what he did to TCU.

Our fans have had to put up with the tail end of the Fulmer years (where he stayed for 2 or 3 too many seasons), and now three calamitous hires.

If they don't at least trot out a big name coach, I don't know what our fans will do.

That last part about not wanting a too-powerful coach worries me. The Gruden supporters think that he wasn't hired here in 2012 because our donors wouldn't give him total control, like Saban. Even if we don't get Gruden, I hope that doesn't scare off other coaches.

In no particular order...Bama, LSU, Auburn, Florida, and Georgia are all better jobs. It's a toss up with TAMU for #6.

FWIW, Florida's facilities are apparently awful, and even though Scott Striclin is now the AD Jeremy Foley is still around helping with decision-making and he is apparently tight fisted with money. ONE of the issues the athletic department had with JM is that he brought this up, unprompted at a press conference.

They just completed a new indoor practice facility in 2015 and are breaking ground on a training center/dining hall next month. Also worth noting that Laird Veatch will be involved with oversight of that project. He'll probably have some input on their coaching hire too.

I think TC's list is very reasonable. 

Bama is obviously Bama.  I knew UF had awful facilities, but didn't know they had that much work scheduled.  They seem like an AD with a bit of a direction issue with a couple tough football hires and not keeping up with the Jones. I don't know about LSU to make a judgement, but gut has them above UT.  Auburn has recent success and hasn't really been in the basement.  We'll see how Georgia sustains.  I don't know one way or another on their facilities.

Also UTenn has amazing transit buses unlike what I've seen at UF, so that practically worth one place up on the power rankings.
