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

    To be honest, I never once thought CNS would leave the NFL for Bama. I thought it was a foolish attempt by Mal Moore to go to Miami and that it would in the end be his demise. So glad I was wrong. My choice was Bob Stoops. Count me wrong twice...

    Anybody not named Mike. Seriously, I would have been happy with either Grobe, Johnson or Patterson. I still think either of them would have won big at Alabama, but certainly not Coach Saban BIG.

    The only coach who won Saban big was Bryant big!! We're extremely lucky as football fans.

    So far it really looks like most favored Johnson. I do indeed think he's an excellent coach but I wonder if he would have changed his offensive philosophy. I don't know if the Navy/Tech offense could have worked in the SEC.

    Early on I had thought maybe Johnson, but look what's happened at Tech. Not only would the offense have eventually bombed but they have no defense! It just couldn't have worked at Bama in the long run if not also in the short.

    I was in the Paul Johnson camp. When I first saw this thread I figured I was gonna get ripped for that but it appears plenty of others had the same thoughts.

    I've never quite understood the fascination with Paul Johnson--even 6-8 yrs ago. He runs an antiquated O with the exception of a few tweeks that hardly prepares players for the NFL. He's a one trick pony that I think would have failed miserably in the SEC if he had ran it here or anywhere else in the league. It might work at the service academies, but it has pretty much gone out of style everywhere else(except Tech, of course)

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

    I believed the Spurrier talk, and thought if we didnt get him, I'd like for Coach Stallings to come back for a year or two while we executed a 'proper' search.
