    IOW, the first three years isn't a great way to judge how a coach is doing. IMO, anything @ 60% or above in the first three years as a head coach is pretty stinkin' good.

    Strong is already a good HC and he will continue to improve. I hope he has enough sense to steer clear of the Barn.
    I agree.

    Did API leak the Strong interview because he turned them down?

    I know sounds weird but tonight is a really big game for the cardinals & I'm sure Coach Stong did not need this?

    Just asking because I would not put it pass them.

    I am one of the very few who will admit that I thought it was a big mistake when we hired Coach Stallings. He had been fired from Texas A&M and the NFL Cardinals. When he started 0-3 it seemed I was right. I am very glad that I was wrong!

    Regarding why it took so long for Strong to get a head coaching gig... If you want my honest opinion, race is the biggest reason it took so long for Strong to get a job...that's all I'll say about it.

    Nope, I thought CGS was a bad hire. Dismal record at TAMU and not much better in the NFL. Then losing his first game to USM in Bham was validation of a bad hire of one of Coach Bryant's boys. I was totally wrong on that one.

    No, I don't think so. Shortly after that rumor leaked, a close acquaintance of his tweeted that it was false, and that he never interviewed for, nor was even interested in, the *U job. I'll take that tweet as authoritative long before I'll believe anyone from *U saying that he interviewed for their opening.
    However I do think that job, as well as many others, will fill very quickly starting this Sunday.

Grrrr. What is funny to me is that he says a 53% record is average, but he is quite happy with the barn's 16-14 record (also 53%) over us during the 30 years post-Coach Bryant...years when we averaged a new coach every 3-4 years and had severe scholarship reductions.
    Coach Saban has said that he had to learn how to coach better after the first few years. It's when he started focusing on player execution above team performance. It seems that a lot of people think that coaches can't learn and evolve as they coach. Now some coaches will always be in over their head, but a good portion will improve over time and become juggernauts like Coach Saban. So, if you point to a coach's first 1, 2, or 3 years as the best they can do, often you're missing the point. Additionally, a new coach has to coach the players that are already in the pipeline, so it's really year 3 or 4 before they are coaching most of their recruits for the style of football they plan to teach. The trajectory of the coach's program is more indicative of how good of a coach they are more than a simple winning percentage. I'd dare say also that the school's conference will play a good deal into the equation too.

    If you don't have anything nice to say, then say it with class, say it eloquently, and for goodness sake use the English language like your English teacher tried so hard to teach you.
