The more I think about it, this guy makes the most sense. I would'nt be disappointed if he becomes Au's next coach. BP is a great coach, but I dont see this happening. Timings off, too close to the scandel. Somebody is going to hire him, but I'm afraid its not going to be Au. But!! who knows
Ill never understand why we'd even consider hiring from our most hated rival.
Because that program is the best in the nation, hands down. There are some coaches out there, but this guy can recruit, he can coach, he's young and can bring in a talented staff, and the most important thing is that he knows that Alabama scheme inside and out. People around here hate Nick Saban and that program that they would rather pass on a prospect than give him a chance. Good thing clearer heads prevailed when dealing with Pat Dye. Like it or not, Nick Saban has one of the most solid programs ive seen in 30 yrs. It seems to have what was misplaced at Auburn in the last 3 yrs. Tough disipline football!!
and smart, himself, has shown us that he'll do that at AU, exactly how? You're betting the future of the program on facts not in evidence.
you should go to vegas, you're odds are about the same there.
so did UGA with MR, So did Fl With WM. The list goes on and on there are tons of former asst coaches that started their present day program with no HC experience, and they are ranked in the top 20 today, however; you're right, there is no guarantee. Ask Arky how they felt about there program this time last year and how how it's going today.
I would be ok with Kirby if contract had no buyout except 15 mil if he went to al or ga
I agree on Smart, I've also got the sinking suspension that Kirby might keep Brian Van Gorder as the defensive coordinator. Now before I get flamed for this, consider the fact that both have experience at the pro level, both believe in pressure defenses that rely heavily on communication in the backend (as well as all over the field), both prefer man to man coverage (although we played zone this past season), and even though schematically they differ in their approach to the 4-3 versus 3-4 I feel kirby will probably run a multiple front, just as Alabama has done the past few years, to keep opposing offenses playing the guessing game.
