I think what he's trying to say is that the south didn't go to war for being 'racist'. There's plenty to argument about on why the South went to war. Anyone that says it had nothing to do with slavery is FOS. But is it far fetch to think that it wasn't the main reason? Those that owned a slave was a extremely small %. Do you honestly believe that everyone that went to war in the South was racist and was fighting for the rich men and families to keep their slaves? I think that's the better question. There's so much taboo surrounding the confederate flag now that it's probably better to find another symbol than to keep fighting these circular arguments.
This STUPID BS is hashed by Saturday Down SOuth every single freaking year. South Carolina has been one of the premier baseball schools in the country constantly being in the top 25 for almost 2 decades. Google 'saturday down south every sec best sport outside of football' It's like clockwork every year. Same stupid garbage is posted for clicks. BRETT WEISBAND | MAR 15, 2015 - Each SEC school’s best sport outside of football JESSI LEE | MAR 14, 2016 | Every SEC school’s best sport outside of football SDS is reaching new levels of low with this crap.
That's funny. A thread just popped up last week on GamecockCentral on where you would want to get a drink at. (Columbia, SC) The Whig wasn't mentioned once and at least 20+ other bars were given. I don't think the author of this article understands what a 'college bar' is.
Rut roh, so as an adult and father, I can't like waffle house? 9 times out of 10 I'll pick that place over some fancy brunch.
There seems to be a lot of mixed information about what he did for Clemson. It looks like he was executive director of the booster money coming in to the athletic department. He must have been going through some highs and lows between his wife passing away and Clemson winning the national championship.
Xavier Thomas has already stated that he's staying in SC and it is down to Clemson and South Carolina. Why add Florida State to the mix?
Both of these are absolutely correct. The question is which one falls first. Coaches quit coming to him because of how they are typically treated or he retires.
I've setup a gofundme page for mike693466's caps-lock key. Help him out.
"Saban had this planned all along. It was his end game for Kiffin" - 90% of the Bama posters on here.
I guess it's a two-sided coin. You could say he's developed a lot of coaching talent or you could say that he's had plenty of coaches there were excited to get out from under his thumb.
Maybe what I'm trying to say is that I'm worried that college football is turning into recruitment only. A lot of schools are recruit first, develop talent 2nd. Saban is a big reason of Alabama's success since 2008 but the game changes. Saban is a much better coach that Swinney but Clemson won on raw talent alone. As some of these Clemson players make it to the NFL, you'll have your proof whether they only used them to win games or actually helped further their career. So far, Swinney really doesn't have a good streak with their NFL talent the last 6-7 years.
In the short term, it works. How do you think Clemson turned it around in 2-3 years? In 2010 they lost to South Florida in a bowl game. Got destroyed by WVU in 2012.
I don't think anyone disagrees with what you said. What is starting to be the issue is that it's starting to be more public on how difficult it is to deal with Saban. His success paired with how he treats his coaches is his own worst enemy. He is either going to pull an Urban Meyer and breakdown from the stress of expectations, retire because he can't find any assistant coaches he's satisfied with, or lead Alabama down a dark path that ultimately requires them to fire him. Your last statement, "programs that let the players clown, and the coaches all are bffs, are the programs that do not sustain long success". Alabama was just beat by a team that lives by that mantra.
The evidence is mounting up that no coach likes to report to Nick Saban. His own success is going to destroy him or make him retire early.
"South Carolina losing linebackers" - link title from the main page So are the Gamecocks losing one LB or multiple?
Is he trying to compete with Kiffin on being the douchey coach of the year? What a stupid thing to do. If he under performs at FSU and is let go... that quote will haunt him.
Why not make it official and change the domain from saturdaydownsouth.com to saturdaydownsecwest.com?
So what you are saying is that Saban has no problem recruiting a freshman high school player even if he knows he might not even be around to see him graduate high school. Gotcha
