Kirk Herbstreit offers strong reaction after Scott Cochran leaves Alabama for on-field job at Georgia
No, it is a huge blow. But No one knew Scott Cochran until Nick Hired him and Alabama made him a star with his energy! Just like No one knew the other Saban assistants that are now head coaches. I’m sure Nick will find a suitable replacement. We are wondering why Nick didn’t make an effort to retain him, Bama has replaced STC a couple of times in the last three years.
It was said there is a rift between Smart and Saban because Kirby recruited athletes on scholarship at UA to transfer to UGA before he left. One did. Also, Kirby took a a picture of the Alabama big board and showed it to prospects and told them they were not high on the Bama board , so the prospects should go to UGA because Kirby had them at the top of his board and thought more of them! Of course, Kirby never showed them a picture of the UGA board or where they actually stood. He didn’t steal the board, he used it to negative recruit against Saban!
It wasn’t petty! Everyone knows they way Flowbee left, taking pictures of the recruiting board, using it against Nick , recruiting Bama players on the way out! Nick was fooled once, wouldn’t let it happen again! Especially going to Flowbee in Leghumper land! Good luck Scott Cochran! Thanks for the years!
In Nick’s tenure during the regular season Bama has played FSU twice, Penn ST twice , Clemson , Wisconsin, Virginia tech twice , USC (2020 will be the second game) And Michigan. Alabama future schedule has Oklahoma , Notre Dame , Texas , Wisconsin, Virginia Tech . Over the next 10-12 years Just knowing a Georgia fan pulling Bama into a conversation about UGA/Clemson shows Nick is living in that Cranium ...rent free!
