Agreed darthA. I don't think coordinators need to defend that season too much. First year under a fully new staff, great rebound the next year.. that's ok.
Yep.. I agree Boxster.
Agreed. Chaney's time at UGA was a mixed bag. The RBs having to go to him late in the season says a lot. I'd have been fine if he stayed, I think he did enough offensively the last two years to have us in a good place to win games, but maybe we need a change of pace. I trust our coaches and the fact that Kirby didn't fight very hard to keep him was all I needed to know that we're gong to be fine. I hope he does well at UT.. just not against us, of course.
Connor, you really don't know us at all. We are THRILLED to have him at Florida, and that Florida thinks so highly of him to pay him that kind of money.
Exactly. That guy abandoned his players and spurned the FSU fanbase because he took his foot off the gas in recruiting. It'll happen again in a few years.
If you think Jimbo doesn't negative recruit, you're not paying attention.
So it was wrong when your school went after Jimbo who was under contract at Florida State? The irony... it burns. Jimbo needs to grow a pair. He'd do the same thing if he had an opportunity.
WATCH: SEC Shorts delivers hilarious SEC Championship Game video, as Bama, UGA fans tell very different bedtime stories
Strangely kind of cathartic. Well done.
One of these days, people will just ignore this idiot rather than continue to give him a platform. It's amazing to think a guy that was as good of a player as he was can either know so little about football, or pretend not to just so he can be the "Anti-SEC Guy".
Yeah, but you're not the better team if you can't sustain that for 60 minutes.
Delusion is not a good look, but whatever helps you get through the day, bud.
Thanks for Bulletin Board Material Luke... probably wouldn't be an issue if you just let it be, but that's ok. See you next year, pal.
Crichvol, I think this is right. Culture change is hard, and Pruitt is bringing a MASSIVE culture change to UT. The key is to understand that HIS players will love him once he gets them in place. You get some successes under your belt, and watch what happens. Buy In will come. Right now, it's not there.
Come on man.. what would any head coach do? Pruitt is not Butch Jones, and UT will be better for that. You can't tolerate insubordination, and he didn't. I think Pruitt will do just fine at UT, but it's going to be rough for awhile.
Talk aout sensationalistic headlines. I thought he went on some wild rampage wrecking stuff. First thought after watching that... is that it? He didn't lose it, SDS geez. Imagine what'll happen if he actually does cause some property damage?
Now that's a hot take. Tebow is not a good analyst. Maybe a touch better at that than being a pro QB, but that ain't saying much.
This guy has no clue when to just shut up.
The problem is the NCAA isn't the NFL. They can't unilaterally address anything. So errant schools like OSU will damage the sport by enabling people like Meyer. We're all guilty be association. It may not be fair, but it's what will happen.
I had a feeling this was coming, and I don't blame her or anyone else one bit. This had implications beyond a head coach's job. Beyond the players... and there was no way the #metoo movement was going to sit idly by and let this be sufficient when the Ohio State report was such obvious BS. Strap in people.. this ain't over.
...and so it begins. I'd like to be snarky, but I can't. There is no real humor in this. It's just bad any way you cut it. But I feel like this is a bid dose of Karma for ol' Urb and I hope this boots him from coaching forever.
Paul Finebaum on Aaron Murray’s negative take on UT’s coach: ‘I don’t give two rips about what he thinks about Jeremy Pruitt’
1. I don't even make fun of UT fans at this point. You guys have been through the ringer when it comes to the administration and coaching carousel you've been on. The SEC is better with you guys strong, and I'm not afraid to admit it. 2. There was no raise because it was Richt's final year. 3. You can believe that Pruitt was abrasive, confrontational and unprofessional while at UGA. Being back to Alabama with Nick's thumb on him might have had a positive effect. I wouldn't worry about the past too much, but be aware of it. It's at least 90% true. His concerns might have been valid, but how he handled them was not.
UT fans, I will say that you should not worry too much about players leaving. Pruitt is going to piss some players off with what he demands. Let the chips fall where they may this year. Going forward, Pruitt will get buy in, and you’ll be fine. Accept what happens this year, you’ll be better in the long run. Those that buy in will end up loving Pruitt. Don’t panic, and stay the course. I think a lot of Pruitt, but I saw this to a lesser degree, happen at UGA when he arrived.
This doesn't concern me. Not that I follow recruiting all that well anyway.. but we've got more coming too.
Well, I don’t blame the kid for not being happy about it. I don’t blame him for wondering who his position coach will be and if he’ll have a good rapport with him. But my response is that no kid should make a decision that would hinge solely on the departure of a position coach, because no staff is without turnover. The timing is bad, and it’s not fair to the kid to be in this position before he’s even enrolled but in today’s world, you have to be prepared for this possibility with any coach.
The big criticism (one I think is valid) is that he put all his eggs in the Kirby basket instead of doing an actual search. I mean.. you fire a guy that's good for 10 wins a season (give or take) to try to take the next step, and you put all your eggs in an unproven coordinator? It boggles the mind, so as you mentioned Neil.. McGariy got lucky but the big thing on this hire is that McGarity wasn't good as much as he was lucky. One could argue it's a calculated risk that paid off I suppose.. but there's no way anyone knew it was actually going to work. So if something were to happen and UGA and Kirby had to part ways.. would we really want that approach for the next hire?
Sounds like someone has a lot of bitterness to work out. Can't say I blame you after 10 years of watching your school try to figure out how to get your program in order. Hang in there, kid.. it gets better. Hopefully Pruitt brings you what you want.
Matty, you're not wrong, but that's on OU for not fielding something better. Think how unstoppable that team would be if they had an elite defense? But they're not chopped liver, they're not even a bad defense.
It's a tale of two Bakers... one is the in-game, cocky, arrogant and antagonistic A-hole. the other is the pre and post game interview Baker who is complimentary, nice and dare I say it... likable. Makes you wonder if this is some kind of twins separated at birth thing.
Passion... and zero self control. I'd like to know exactly what he was upset about, other than essentially beating the Panthers in almost every facet but the scoreboard. Because that was a pretty clean play and the Peppers recovered it. Either way, he needs to get that under control if he wants to effectively lead his team. I'm not saying don't be passionate. I'm saying channel it properly and not go off the rails.
lol. The announcers said it was in honor of his son't birthday.
