OT: Tennessee now interviewing Jeff Brohm.

Submitted by NFG on November 29th, 2017 at 11:04 AM

In what only can be described as the worst scenario possible for Purdue football, ESPN is stating that Tennessee and Brohm are in talks regarding their vacant head coaching position. If true, this is very unfortunate for Purdue fans after living through 4 years of crap. If this comes to fruition, I hope Purdue offers Bo Pelini, who is very similar in mentality and approach.

What? Sarcasm? Jeff Brohm is a fantastic coach and Tennessee is a very good job. It's a program with a lot of expectations, fans, and resources. They have excellent facilities. It's not a program that he could walk into and go to the SEC championship game, but it's a top 20 job in the country.

That would be my question...let's see - retread Defensive Coordinator with baggage or an up and coming young coach with an innovative offensive scheme and just turned a dumpster fire into a competitive team in 1 year?

But seriously, we all have that in us sometimes - the key is to resist the "joyless" instincts and enjoy life.  I get down when I think too much about politics, domestic / global issues, social media (exposing that 30% of the population is mentally ill / unstable), etc......

But life is too short for negativity.  Got to enjoy it the best you can.  That is why I love me some Michigan football and will always be excited for the next game, next season, next QB, etc...  Hell, I am even excited about the LIons - hoping they can make the playoffs this year.

My favorite thing in the world right is flying up to AA and going to the Big House with my son.

Fuck if I know. I wouldn’t pick Schiano over anyone.

And this isn’t just at you, but did anyone actually think I was comparing Schiano to Belichick or trying to make a case for retread defensive coordinators over young offensive innovators? Come on guys. Snark works best when you fisk someone’s actual arguments.

I thought it was going to be the lead-in to the next great Hollywood romantic gay comedy. "He's a retread defensive coordinator with some baggage. He's an up-and-comer with an exciting offensive scheme. Together they make sweet music on the football field--and in the bedroom. But can this odd couple take Rocky Top to new heights? Or will they each find they volunteered for too much?"
