You don't leave one chambered, that's just looking for this kind of accident.
@dellav8r yes this "kind" of game is unusual for Bama, and that hints very much at the point. Saban can't keep his assistants around because they are constantly being hired as a promotion to run other programs. All college programs have player churn, Saban has to deal with both player and staff churn at a level almost no other coach has to deal with. Again, a victim of his own success may be a "good" problem but none the less it is a problem. Would Nick be happy with a 9 to 10 win program that consistently challenges to reach Atlanta as the top end? Every season it's the constant grind of year round recruiting plus training a new set of coaching staff. He has already done it all, he has nothing left to prove, why not enjoy the twilight years with his wife at a posh lake/beach house, fishing and playing golf. It's not like he hasn't earned it.
That wasn't one bad, game, that was one REALLY bad VERY BIG game. Just the same I never argued that this ended or erases the Saban dynasty, but Saban is no young guy, and he clearly doens't NEED the headaches or paycheck that go with the job either.
This wasn't just a case of Clemson players went out and played harder than Bama's players. These teams looked different that the entire Bama program seemed inferior from the coaching staff to players to the water boy. Watching that game who do you want to come run your program Dabo or one of his coordinators or Saban or one of his? This game represents a serious question in Sabans ability to maintain a program at the level he aspires to and of course if that becomes the case he is a victim of his own success. Just the same this represents a chink in the Saban-Bama mystic and armor that could send ripples through the college football world, when other coaches may seriously be able to question how much longer Legend Nick will be around to recruits, will that help hasten his inevitable decision to finally call it a career?
Unlike TrumanUp02 I DON'T want any of what you're smoking, Mizzou fans seem to have a particular affinity for some form of self delusion they use to convince themselves that a gray cloud is a rainbow. The claim MU would be better off with Badie and no Crockett is not even worth engaging as an argument.
Agree, the line of scrimmage looked like little Bama getting whipped by BIG Bama.
"a lot of the Bama play calling was suspect" agree, perhaps this is karma for bringing Butch into the clubhouse.
Saban being nice to the media?? Makes me think he might be ready to hang it up.
When he was healthy he looked very good, a lot like his freshman year, would have been great to have him back one more season, don't kid yourself he wasn't getting beat out by anyone.
Well you were always garbage and you still are, no matter what you switch fan handles to next.
So you aren't gonna run your mouth incessantly until your gumps win right?
Wheres bamatime to tell us how this is the greatest team ever? Switching over to a clemson handle no doubt.
..and Citadel will always have that one time when they played the Greatest Football Team of All Time dead even for the first half.
Good story, hadn't realized that Kuligowski actually played for Saban at Toledo, and then worked for Eberflus at MU. At Mizzou Eberflus himself was actually becoming a fair DC in his own right when he could get any talent on the field at all which was rarely. He put together some good defenses but Pinkel didn't like the fact they occasionally got burned deep and "took over" the scheme, insisting the DBs play 10 plus yards off the line. At that point Eberflus correctly surmised he would never have a good 3 and out defense and wisely exited for another job in the NFL.
Good to know if Clemson wins it will be vs greatest gump of all times.
Was Citadel still up late in the 2nd quarter? "Greatest ever" ok... or maybe not.
Agree Foam but he had only 2 years with an actual QB coach, that being Heupel, the only accomplished QB coach that's been at Mizzou in the last 20 years. Real coaching does matter and that will become apparent when he gets to the NFL.
You sort of dance around the real issue without actually hitting it. Sports broadcasting is just an arm of international media corporations, the giant industry that pumps garbage news 24x7 and eats it's own crap. None of them want to admit what any of us who have been to the left coast in the past 2 decades knows. It's not a golden arches and sunshine, it's an infested cesspool of stinking hemp head vegan progleft America hating yippies and dippies that sling feces and drink yard grass. These ingrates despise American heritage including the venerable traditions like college football, yet their idiot politics drive up the price of breathing to the moon and make any sane normal person feel like they're in an alien petting zoo. Why on earth would any normal person who is an SEC/ACC fan want to go to that helehole? Of course you work in media so you wouldn't know any of this.
I remember Tuberville beating the snot out of Pinkels Tigers and thinking, wow this guy got bounced from the SEC and in the bev12 he is a top coach.
Next week decides 1 and 2 but all else seems reasonable enough.
He should get Elton John to autograph those Benny and the Cats shoes, you'ed like to think Elton would like to know who he is.
WEll, done and done. Grats Cats and well done Benny.
He just needed one more TD pass(the one he should have thrown for the win in the Liberty bowl)to be in first place for that stat too. Mizzou coaching asked him to run the ball instead.
Guess you didn't get the memo, the mizzou homers have decided Drew Lock is no good, he's why Barry O couldn't win more than 8 games. Apparently Lock is what was holding Barry Greatest of all time HC's Odom back.
The SEC does have more good athletes, this is proven by the NFL draft year in and out. What the SEC still lacks is superior coaching up and down boards, there is one or two at best really good coaches in the conference.
