Madison - 'The news that Bret Bielema was stepping down as head coach at Wisconsin and leaving to take over the Arkansas program, left the UW players reeling.
With less than a month to prepare to face No. 8 Stanford in the 2013 Rose Bowl, the departure of Bielema was the latest hit for a UW team that lost three games in overtime and five overall by a combined 19 points during a tumultuous regular season.
According to a source close to the program, the team's six captains were determined to respond forcefully and quickly.'

"Don't know. Never had one"
-- D. Royal-Mack Brown how to coach a team after a losing season
The Vols need to go convince Peyton Manning to retire from the NFL before he creates permanent damage to his neck and move back to Knoxville to rebuild the disaster that is Tennessee football. Assuming Peyton has any ambitions beyond spending his fortune and a TV gig for the rest of his life.
They just need to suck it up and hire fulmer back
How will ESPN handle the "rejection" of the mighty SEC by a 1st year ACC coach?
Will Alvarez follow the path as Snyder, and come back to the program for the next several years?
We'll make this the coaching thread today.
Fulmer is absolutely gaining some steam at Tennessee and Alvarez doing this certainly doesn't hurt his case.
** Of note: Sonny Dykes (son of Spike) took the Cal job yesterday, which now leaves Arkansas State, La Tech and UTEP open regionally.

Tennessee desperately needs a crash course on how to hire a head coach. Over the last two cycles of HC search, how many candidates have publicly turned down TN? I don't think you can let that happen. It'll be a matter of time before they settle for a lesser candidate again. Shame...
Disciplina praesidium civitatis
Bobby - any thoughts on Major to La.-Tech? He seems to fit there like a rubber.
God I hope not - I'm still HOPING that he's our head coach in the next two years.
Anyway - your thoughts?
Butch Jones of Cincinnati turns down Colorado. How the mighty have fallen.
I think he'd be a good hire. I don't know if he'd be interviewed.
There is no way Major becomes the head coach at the University of Texas without first being a head coach somewhere else or maybe (and this is a stretch) first being the sole OC for close to a decade. It just won't happen.
ESPN saying reports have Gundy staying at OSU.
Tom Oates @TomOatesWSJ
Barry Alvarez: Paul Chryst will stay at Pitt. #Badgers
Pitt would have had to hire 5 coaches in four years.
Todd Graham is not impressed...
Paul Rhoads to Tennessee
Thank the stars you have no input on the program.
Blind loyalty. its what hurt the current coach
Tennessee needs to just hire James Franklin already and move on.
Football Rumor Mill @fbrumormill
Tommy Tuberville's name is flying around in Knoxville.
It should've already been. Who would replaces Tuberville if he goes to Tenn?
"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from
time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants".
Would they really miss him at tech?
No because they still miss Leach at Tech.
Mike Gundy would have gotten the Tennessee gig if he hadn't botched the following question:
Coach Gundy, what do you think of Phil Fullmer?
Don't you think this would make sense. I doubt he turns that down...
as I posted in the Paul Rhodes thread - he's got a 10 year contract with Iowa State paying him $2 million a year that was given to him after finishing 8th in the league last year. Tennessee will offer more money but won't reward 6 wins with a pay raise or extension like Iowa State.
