You wanted to keep CGC. What his record and score tally against saban and Richt? Your opinions are worthless, IMO.
And Nick Saban only finished hire than 5th in the Big 10 once at Michigan St. So he must be incapable of competing at a higher level, right?
Auburn is a vastly better program than Arkansas, with a much higher ceiling. I'm not sure what Tubs record against Alabama was while he was at Ole Miss, but it probably wasn't great. He ended up doing decently against them once he was at Auburn too.
This is a dumb argument that doesn't hold water. On the surface, it appears to be a cogent argument, but once you actually look at it, it is entirely irrelevant. You have to look at the whole picture. You must see that. You don't seriously think 0-4 against Saban WHILE AT ARKANSAS matters as much as you are trying to make it out, right?
kick 'em in the ass, big blue.
If Chizik's 5-19 record at Iowa State mattered, then Patrino's 0 - 4 against UAT is relevent.
UAT hired Bill Curry who was 0 - 4 against us. He had a lot of success there EXCEPT in the big games, including us. Until Saban, Curry had the best winning percentage of any UAT coach since Bear, yet how many Bammers would consider his tenure a success?
Oh and BTW, if you'll look carefully you'll see that under Patrino, Arkansas tended to choke in the big games.
I honestly think Patrino is a good coach. If we hire him, I'll support him. I also expect us to win 8 - 10 games a year but to be lucky if we beat UAT 1 out of every 5 years.
Tubs was 1-3 versus Arky while at Ole Miss, after inheriting a program on what were at the time the worst NCAA sanctions since SMU.
He was 5-5 against the Razorbacks at Auburn, with what have been generally agreed as the most talented teams in AU history.
This is one of our main problems, keeping up with Alabama. I'm sick of it. Alabama is a powerhouse right now and is going to be tough to beat on a consistent basis for any team. We need to do Auburn and worry about getting a coach that can get us in the conference title hunt each year...

Good luck finding a coach that has a winning recored recently against Saban. Our talent at Auburn is way better that what you can recruit to Arkansas. We have a much vetter talent pool to choose from at Auburn.
They called down the the thunder and now they got it. Tell them hell's coming! You hear?! Hell's coming with me!
Well the only coach that has a winning record against Saban is Tubberville so go get him with that logic. I guess if Pat Sullivan can't beat UT Martin at Samford he would never beat them if he coached at Auburn.
Tubs never beat bammer until he got to AU
