    I would doubt this since he was still working after the rest of the staff was let go.

    Doubt as you must. I am just sorry he has gone. The barn could be on its way to straightening up their act.

    It will definitely be interesting to see if TT can in fact keep his mouth shut and just enjoy the hush money, or if he gets too bent out of shape and decides to tell where the bodies are buried. I just can't see TT having the maturity to ride off into the sunset quietly. I'm sure either Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson have already contacted him to see if he needs their help.

    If you offered the typical Alabama fan the choice of an 8-5 season with a win vs the barn, or an SEC Championship, but with a loss to the barn, the significant majority would take the championship.

    The barn, however, defines itself by beating us. Those guys would be happy with 4-8 forever and always, so long as one of the four was us.

    Visit their museum and compare it to the Bryant Museum. The Bryant is a monument to SEC and National Championships. Theirs is a monument to wins over us.
    The above is exactly correct.

    They have been on probation (7) three times more than they have NCs (2).
    Google Lovelace Museum (their words) or Rane Reception Room. Whether you or I think so, they clearly believe they have a museum.

    Ole Sis has improved and should beat AU.
    Georgia will still field a good team... Another loss.
    That's 5 losses without MSU, Arkansas, which could also be losses... Depending...

    Gus will be a pretty good coach, but he's saddled with pending NCAA issues.
    Gus must find a mobile QB to run his 'Running Spread Offense'.
    Gus must rebuild the AU Defense. It is really bad.
    (Not sure Johnson is up to the job)

    For Gus... A plus is Trooper leaving.↓
    With the NCAA having AU in it's 'Cross Hairs', even if they miss, the effect will be continued turmoil.

    I'm surprised. Since they were in the stag together with CGC, I figured Gus would
    have kept him. Maybe Uthug will take him back.

    Gus did fine (#1 NCAA) at Tulsa with a quarterback that didn't run.

    I just don't buy into any of the "blackmail" type talk around these crooked coaches. If any coach were to turn on their employer (or ex-employer) they would be effectively ending their professional coaching career.

    I understand your point but SEC defenses are bit tougher than C-USA ones. Plus, his system is familiar to the league now so he won't have that to his advantage either (see 2011 season).

    Either way, his system does not rely on a running QB.
