answer this for me. how many times has Petrino faced a Saban team, and how many times has he beat a Saban team? (ZERO wins)
I would prefer someone like Strong or Franklin over a guy that has proven he can't beat Saban on top of destroying the Auburn creed in the process.
You tell me why would should hire someone that has proved he can't beat Saban. I don't want to hear about having more talent here. Chizik got the talent here but couldn't produce. Petrino has proven he isn't good at recruiting. So why hire him plus his baggage?
What was Tuberville's record against Alabama when he was at Ole Miss?
Hating uga since 1892.
On PAR with Saban? Are you kidding me? The only coach that MAY BE on par with Saban is Bill Snyder.
Someone with some standards. This guy can't be trusted what so ever (e.g., Louisville, Atlanta, Arkansas). A 747 doesn't have enough cargo space for all his baggage!
The OP may be right, there may not be better options for just a coach, but you simply can't hire someone with has left a train wreck at each of his prior stops. Morality aside, he was committing fraud (multiple felonies), and lied to everyone in the administration innumerable times.
When Arky hired him, everyone said (including us) that they would get what they deserved. And they did...
He left them with several lawsuits (they will pay out), no talent, and the program in shambles. He never finished better then 3rd in the SEC West.
Forget it, he's not an option.
WE COMING . WAR EAGLE !
Standards? Haha. Too funny. He messed up just once. That was Arkansas. The lville stepping stone is well known. Falcons?? Give me a break. Breakups are messy for all.
You contradicted yourself in your post. Do you read what you type?
