Just gotta stop that lil inside trap
"I didn't come to Alabama to win 10 games a year and be a contender. I came here to win championships. Conference championships and national championships. I love it here because that's just not what I want, but what this fanbase expects."

People continue to say CKS should go get some head coaching experience before we give him a shot....why? Because Coach Shula failed?
Florida is doing just fine with Coach Muschamp and he had no experience as a HC.
It can work with the right guy and with the right foundation in place. If we somehow fall off a cliff, yes I want a HC with some experience. If CNS leaves us at the top of CFB, as I expect he will, experience won't matter as long as you have a scheme that will work.
"We have an opponent in this state that we work every day, 365 days a year, to dominate."
I've said "Bama is no place to learn to be a head coach" but CKS might be the exception to that rule IN A FEW MORE YEARS.
Hopefully CNS stays and IF CKS stays with him all this time, while turning down other decent opportunities, I could see Bama MAYBE doing this.
As you can see I'm unsure but if we did this with anybody IN A FEW YEARS I could see it being with Smart.
If CNS says he's like him and recommended him, it might be the SMART thing to do especially if we've added a few more championships to the case.
Well I think Kirby would take a job at somewhere say like Clemson and if he does good and the Bama job were to open up later he would jump to return. He knows the tradition and knows the support he would get so I think if he ever was to leave he would relish the chance to come back.
JMO, but....I think KS should go to USM.
He couldn't do anything but improve the program
He has a lot of talent to draw from
Other coaches have had success at USM
If he went there, he would be there until CNS retires, thereby....
Coming back to Bama
I know, I can dream...
Remember Muchamp and Jimbo Fisher (his peers) went straight from assistant to big time HC, if they are still at their schools when Coach Saban retires, not giving it to Coach Smart would be a huge mistake. Dubose should have no bearing on the hire at all. Coach Stallings really did not do much mentoring imo.....he has no HC tree.
IMO, he will not stay at Bama until CNS retires...unless CNS retires within the next two years.
I believe facing Mark Richt in the SEC championship has extended Kirby Smart's career at Alabama by a few years. Thanks, Mark!

LOL! Let's also remember that Saban recommended Houston Nutt to LSU as well. Just sayin....
