Amen to this. This feels like a home-run hire. I think it will work out that way.
Expect a major facilities announcement from the BOT Tuesday.
GO BEARCATS!! FIGHT!!! FIGHT!!!! FIGHT!!!!!
I hope he brings KC in, in some assistant capacity. Recruiting is too damn good not to consider.
But, Tuberville will kill it in FLA and SEC country.
Were laughing while Illinois is crying for just that reason. Biggest hire of the Silly Season!
I am so pleasantly surprised. Way to let everyone else speculate Whit while you beared down and thought like a big dog.
Ours is 53 I believe and Tuberville can coach circles around Jones. No way this is not a better situation than before...
Hat kind of offense does he run?
Tiny thinking guys. We are in for major coaching and recruiting upgrade. Whit wasn't kidding when he said he was working on this four months ago.
WOWSER!!!! This is amazing!!! See ya Butch!!! Welcome Coach Tubberville!!!! I thought we should have took him last time we had the chance when we hired Butch Jones. I love Butch and hope he does great but this takes the cake!!! Whit Babcock is the best AD we have ever had!!! Go Bearcats Go Babcock Go Tubberville!
Side note, Nippert expansion must be looking good if Tubberville is bolting Tech to come here!!! SO EXCITED!!!
We Bleed Red! We Bleed Black! We Bleed Passion! We Are Bearcats!
I talked to him briefly last year while waiting in the cattle line to get on a Southwest flight out of Lubbock. He was pleasant and seemed down to earth.
Whit and Prez Ono are saying we are all in. Well when do season tickets go on sale? I'm in too!
The #16 scoring, #2 passing, #7 passing efficiency offense in the nation. They throw the ball all over the lot.
Brendon Kay must be salivating for a 6th year big-time right now.

You know what you're right, after a hire like this who knows what will happen
University of Cincinnati class of '14
Watching KY bball on ESPN while waiting for the UC game to begin and scrolling across the bottom that Texas Tech officials were "completely blindsided" by this move as I am sure most of the nation is. Feel for Texas Tech but at least the band-aid was ripped off quickly as opposed to the slow pull by Butch this last week...
Imagine tuberville and coombs recruiting together!!! Imagine those two and possibly petrino as offensive coordinator! This could be incredible! I know both coombs and petrino are probably longshots, but it could happen! Either way, so pumped about this!

I'm stunned. Good hire Bearcats!
Good Hire IMO UC!!!!!
Vols fans are now thinking "we got our # 4 choice and look how quickly they replaced Jones with a proven coach" LOL...
Ok - let me try again then :)
I know what Whit said in the press conference, but I can't help but think there is a chance he really didn't do everything he could to keep Butch knowing this was a possibility. I hinted I thought this was a possibility in another thread and got some backlash for it as some thought it was a dig at the administration. It actually was not, it was saying perhaps they were doing what was in the best interest of the university. I am just speculating here, but the speed of this hire makes this a plausbile scenario.
How do the people in Knoxville feel today?
Holy Batman. Huge hire. Speaks volumes about UC's commitment to athletics. Speaks volumes for Whit. Great stuff.

The kind that scores lots of TD's.
Based on their tweets UC's recruits are stoked!
