[Jones] spent about four hours in West Lafayette on Sunday as part of the interview process for the vacant Purdue football opening. Jones was brought to campus on a Purdue plane, arriving about 11:45 a.m. The 44-year old Jones was accompanied by Boilermaker athletic director Morgan Burke. Jones' wife, Barbara, also made the trip. Burke's wife, Kate, was on the plane as well. Jones departed from the Purdue airport around 3:30 p.m. ... Jones is scheduled to interview at Colorado on Monday, according to the Denver Post.

Not a bet, lost his own Pick'em, with a buncha HS and D2-D3 games on the list. DS and the Colonel combo'ed on his name/avi, and did a fine job, too.

he's way down the list. If UTk gets to him then there are problems.

Do you really think he would leave, where they are at, either of them??? I think TN if a fine place, but come on, either of them luv where they are now.

But that's the catch. The stories are that both of them have issues with their AD's and/or boosters.
