    Re: Be Honest-After Shula Was Fired/Before Coach S Was Hired, Who Did You Want As Coa

    There was no talk of who Alabama was going after for a long time so I hoped and kind of suspected we were holding out for Coach Saban, but I didn't really think he would come.

    I'll admit I was happy with Rich Rod. I still think he's a pretty good coach, but man am I glad it didn't work out.

    here's my top 5 list. 1. Dylan, 2. Dylan, Dylan Dylan and Dylan. (not everyone will get that but for those that do hope you enjoyed it.)


    Seriously Saban was the one I wanted. Was ok but let down when it looked like Rich Rod. After that I was really still hoping against hope for Saban. Worked out for me.

    I remember thinking Alabama was one more bad hire away from being Ole Miss.

    I wanted Saban to come but I never thought Bama would get him cause the Dolphins season was getting better towards the end .

    My top 5 was as follows:

    Saban - I thought there was zero chance, but the name was out there, I wanted those defenses he had at LSU. I thought he bwas unobtainium.

    Spurrier - I know some people on Lake Martin that know Bill Oliver personally, and there was more interest by Spurrier than many ppl realize according to Brother. Brother wanted to come back here, and would have (at least tried) if Spurrier did.

    Butch Davis - I knew he might be a gamble, but I was knew he was a pretty good coach.

    Rich Rod (I know, I know...)

    Paul Johnson - What can I say - his agent, dabaxter, was wearing on me!

    After the Rich Rod hire/no hire ordeal - I thought Paul Johnson would be about the best we could do.

    I didn't think any of the S men - Saban, Spurrier, Stoops - was either possible or advisable. I was thinking Paul Johnson or Jeff Tedford, based on their past performance. I think I'll stick with my day job...

    I never even considered CNS. I knew Patterson was a strong defensive coach and that fit in with Alabama. Since SOS was already at USCe, and had been there for only 2 years, he was not going to leave Columbia. I preferred Grobe over Rich Rod and Johnson. Even when CNS's name surfaced I knew, not thought, we had no chance. Thanks to CMM we are where we are.

    I was hoping Stallings would come back and at least salvage the program.

    Bill Parcells -- if not Coach Superior...we were desperate. Mal Moore can stay as long as he wants to in my book...(and I have absolutely no say or pull whatsoever.)

    I had completely forgotten that there was talk of that. I think Coach Stallings even allluded to it in an interview.
