Well, I have been laying in a recliner, listening to the ocean and processing my thoughts (not that anybody cares) and here goes.
1. I can't fathom being a school that would even consider firing a coach 22 months after winning the first NC in over 50 years. However, have you ever seen such a collapse of a program (meaning team, fans, mindset, etc). outside of major sanctions?
2. We are bringing in tremendous talent - is this talent being developed and if so is it too soon to know.
3. I coached middle school football for ten years so that makes me about as much of a college expert as your wife. However, I was the OC and when you are dealing with 12 year olds you take what you can get. I changed my offense every year based on the ability and talent I had so that we would have a chance to succeed. I see no such changes for us from Saturday to Saturday. I simply have to wonder why?
4. BIG QUESTION: I am not starting a rumor, I know no one on the inside and no one on the inside has a clue I exist. However, it would appear that our coaches are not on the same page. Asking for comments - do you think the intense and yet undeserved media scrutiny and the blatant attacks of bogus ncaa stuff has strained our staff?
5. I hear all the talk of coaching changes and I hope this staff pulls it together and we see great strides the rest of the year. I can eat an eight loss year if we start looking better. However, why no talk of Kirby Smart? Most of Saban's minions are doing well.
6. Finally, this is my last thought and it really pains me to say this. Bear Bryant had success at Alabama at a time when college football was unfair and he had 3000 players on his sidelines. Today, college parity is at its greatest. If the turd nation wins the BCS this year I believe Bryant should no longer be consider the greatest coach at Tuskaloser. I don't like Saban but you cannot argue with what he is doing. The positive side of this is that with all his success we are going toe to toe in recruiting with them. However, unless it starts materializing on the field that will end soon.
War Eagle!! I would rather be an Auburn man on our worst day than a Bammer on their best. AND THAT IS A FACT!!
