We dove deep into the Tennessee search yesterday. My list of Top 5 candidates with AD Danny White now on board -- WVU's Neal Brown, Louisville's Scott Satterfield, SMU's Sonny Dykes, Clemson OC Tony Elliott and Buffalo's Lance Leiplod. More here. https://t.co/yB0UYXQR9t
Name I've heard from several folks around college athletics about who would be a well-regarded successor to Larry Scott running the Pac-12: Oliver Luck, former CEO of the XFL and WVU athletic director. "He makes a lot of sense... so they probably wouldn't do it."
Today’s recruits were about four years old the last time Tennessee had a 10-win season. Right on the edge of being another Nebraska, where success with regularity (that once seemed guaranteed) just goes away and never returns.
Look, I won’t go as far as to say I called this, but I had a high degree of skepticism. For all of Danny Manning’s (many) shortcomings as a head coach, the dude genuinely gets the best out of bigs. Sarr has not been the same player at UK at all.
Interested to see how Olivier Sarr does at Kentucky. Frankly, he looked completely lost at the beginning at Wake, but was a totally different player by last season. If he gets a waiver (big "if") and is THE big man for UK next year, wonder if he can perform at that level nightly.
