    I'll be very surprised if he takes the FSU job, because he's been wanting to slow down, not take a new challenge. However, who knows?

    So am I. I just read where Walker decommitted and is about to enroll at FSU. They've been poaching off us since Fisher took over.

    The Pruitt departure was not as smooth as advertised. This may be a bridge-burner...

    I know I am not anyone that matters to the Bama football program....but it burned my bridge especially with the DW scenario and CJP. I cant believe they would even hire CJP as the DC, as he is the least experienced guy on the Bama staff, but has been a good recruiter. Even with a higher position, it seems CJP threw not only his alma mater and Defensive mentor under the bus to take the short ride with CJF and FSU....I wonder how long it will take Jimbo to throw Jeremy under the bus when this experiment does not work out.....I can see Jimbo, Jeremy, and Sal...all looking for jobs in a couple years or less and I wonder who they will be calling first. And if I was CNS I would not even answer their call.........

    Scott Cochrane(sp?) deserves a shoutout. He has done a FANTASTIC job, including RB strength development.

    Didn't many believe Lance Thompson to have done the same? Would you consider this (Pruitt) worse?

    I heatd that as well. Always like to see coaches improve themselves & so does CNS. A lot of folks are getting tired of Jimbo, and there are a lot & I mean a lot that are still not to happy about they way Bowden was handled. Just remember Bobby raise a lot of money for that school.
    They are not as good at FSU of developing talent.

    Now, Coach Burns he is the Best just ask Mark Ingram.

    He stays, we pay, all appreciate him.

    BTW, Urban Meyer was really pushing the get Bama coaches on ESPN with asking how do you not hire one of these coaches.

    Yeah, I saw something online where CNS is not pleased with what CJF is doing. Something seems up with everything going on at FSU.

    As if I didn't like FSU enough already.

    Am I missing something? Where did CJP throw Bama or Saban under the bus in the process of a promotion? Why do you think he is destined to fail at FSU? You said it the Walker recruiting thread, too. Stoops did such a poor job at FSU that he got the Kentucky head coaching job. To fail at FSU, Pruitt will have to do a horrendous job. That defense has a ridiculous amount of talent. Plus, they play in the ACC. Right now, the ACC is FSU and Clemson followed by everyone else.

    As bad, anyway. However, the fact that Coach and Lance could make up would tend to tell me that, if Kirby moves on, we'd see CJP back.

    Coach Burns is a wonderful coach and an even better man. He just can't leave! I've gotten to know him and I'd be losing a friend.
