Phew, it’s been a busy day in the SEC. Just this afternoon, news broke that Bret Bielema (it is going to take me a long time not to type that bulimia) is headed to Arkansas and Gus Malzahn to Auburn. Now, rumor has it that Charlie Strong will be the next head coach at Tennessee.
ESPN is reporting that Strong is the leading candidate for the Tennessee job, but since Phillip Fulmer is being inducted into the Hall of Fame tonight, word won’t come one way or the other until tomorrow. Based on his comments yesterday, Strong accepting wouldn’t come as a shock; he pretty much gave Cards fans the middle finger when he criticized their support for the team and encouraged them to be more like the Big Blue Nation.
How do you feel about Strong possibly becoming the head coach of another rival?
