It’s Too Cold For A Wet Blanket

David CutcliffeNew reports this afternoon, coming on the heels of Tennessee apparently being rejected by number-one choice Will Muschamp and number-two choice Troy Calhoun, say Mike Hamilton is turning to a familar, warm blanket to fill the Vol Vacancy.

It’s David Cutcliffe, who has been living in Durham, NC the past two seasons coaching the low-key Duke Blue Devils.

My first reaction is that, if true, this will go over more like a wet blanket than a warm blanket.

    Kippy Brown interviews tomorrow; Randy Edsall at UConn may be interviewing now.

    Back to Cutcliffe: http://www.govolsxtra.com/news/2010/jan/14/source-cutcliffe-has-not-been-hired-ut/

    Hiring Cutcliffe is surrendering the SEC East to Florida for the next decade with this hire. I like and respect the man, but he does not need to be the head coach here.

    If this really goes down, please do not let him bring back Chavis, which I have heard he might do; keep Lance Thompson, and make him DC. Having Fulmer Lite as head coach is bad enough.

    I agree rockytop78. Cutcliffe can’t be the man. He is definitely a quality coach. And a quality man. But a head coach in the SEC today has to be so much more than that, if you want to win the league.

    That’s too obvious to even talk about.
