actually Cutcliff is an out standing HC....was the stick that stirred the pot for Tennessee....why he wasn’t maintained at Ole miss is beyond me...
Cut was hired to go to ND and be the new OC after he left Ole Miss, but ended up having a heart attack needing by-pass. He took a little time off and then ended up back at UT for a year or two near the end of Fulmer's run, but they were not able to re-kindle the fire. I think they had lost too many good recruiters by that time. Cut got the offer to go to Duke and has been there ever since. I think UT tried to gauge some interest in one of the hires.....maybe about the time Dooley was hired or right after, but Cut seems very comfortable.
Fulmer's attention wasn't on the football program in his later years: see Mack Brown at Texas.
True, but unfortunately one of that bunch will win the ACC. And as much as we would like for it to be other than ND or Clemson, it appears that it will be one or the other. The only other that even appears to be able to compete is UNC. Clemson and UNC do not play and ND plays at UNC and has Clemson at home.
