    Was that a typo? Did you type "A" meaning to type "O"?

    I think the SEC got it right. Next year someone can hire him.

    Re: What really happened between Hugh Freeze, Alabama and the SEC

    I'm in the crowd who is glad he is not employed by the university. Winning means nothing to me if it is not done the right way. I hope Freeze will get a second chance, and I hope he redeems himself and learns from his mistakes. However, I think he should have to earn his way back through the ranks and not start back at the pinnacle. That's just my opinion.

    Just so I'm clear - I agree.

    In a perfect world, when he was reprimanded by the NCAA, SEC management should have immediately sent a memo out to all schools they didn't want to see him hired back this coming season in any capacity.

    I guess it never occurred to them that at least one head coach was innovative enough to look at doing just that.

    Did CNS plan on CHF to be involved in any recruiting if he was able to hire him? I can't see how you could have him on the staff and have contact with recruits. Way too much down side to that. It's best that ship has sailed.

    CNS can hire whomever he wants. My opinion, which doesn't mean jack, is I am glad Sankey advised against it. I simply do not trust Freeze.

    I didn't like the Kiffin hire and I would have liked this one less...

    I also don't care what other people think of us. I care what I think of us, and I'm not a win at all costs kind of guy. It is a bit like Saban talks about playing to a standard. I think the same should apply with how we run our program. That's just me.

    I really do hope Freeze gets his life together and keeps it that way. I hope that life does not involve Alabama.

    As long as this doesn’t stick out in a decade, like David Stern blocking the Chris Paul to the Lakers trade, I’m fine with protecting the image of the conference. If Saban was OK with hiring him then so am I.
