Mike Gundy Seriously Considered Tennessee

+

Turns out Mike Gundy really did consider the Tennessee job before deciding he couldn't leave his alma mater. Sounds like the allure came down to a belief that UT is an easier place than Oklahoma State to win a national title, and because (essentially, in so many words) he could play more cupcakes in Knoxville. He euphemistically describes is as having concerns about scheduling, but one big concern is about playing a tough opponent in a kickoff game on top of a nine-game conference schedule. So, cupcakes.
