    I like Nick Saban, but I don't think he hung the moon like a lot of people think. Still, he's a solid coach and if hired tomorrow in the SEC would be no worse than the second-best guy in the league behind Spurrier.

    As for his offense, he threw the football with a tremendous amount of success when he was the OC (under Tommy Bowden) at Tulane. The guy knows football.

    If you still don’t think dabaxter was Paul Johnson, this gem should prove it.

    I had totally forgotten how many Shula defenders there were during the coaching search. I wonder how they felt after the Sugar Bowl against Utah, or after the Rose Bowl against Texas, not to mention this last game against UGA.

    Beat Texas by more
    Beat UGA without overtime


    And won the three-peat in 2013...

    Honestly, I tried to defend him for as long as I could. I thought we needed to be more patient and give him more time. I understood all the reasons we had to do what we did, but I badly wanted Shula to work out. Son of am NFL legendary coach, played his college ball with us, returns to save his alma during troubled times...I really wanted a happy ending in that story for everyone. We eventually got ours, and I am now glad my opinion was not the way we went, but I will admit I wasn't completely behind firing him until after it had happened.

    I was at the 06 IB and it was just awful. The day before we were walking around BDS and I couldnít believe how open people were in public about him. Bad mouthing him, criticizing him, Iím like, if you want to say something, say it softly or wait until you are out of that area. The game was even worse. I felt bad for him, but he was just a short term fix though. Glad the way things worked out.

    Re: Blasts From The Past - A Catch-All Thread of Tide Fans Classics

    I was at the Independence Bowl that year. It was a pretty easy ticket to get, as I lived in Shreveport, and I don't think fans were too enthused to be playing in that particular bowl that year under those circumstances. It certainly seemed like the stands were relatively empty that year. Sure, there were plenty of Bama fans to be sure, but there were a lot of empty seats around where we were as well. Now the following year, I will not say it was packed, but where my son and I were sitting was quite crowded with some very enthusiastic fans. Then again, we were near the band and the crowd seemed into every band-led cheer.

    Shame we're not also getting threads from 2007 from Tigerdroppings and ITAT ;p
    Honey Badger can take what the Tide gives him and like it.

    If the new coach can't win 10 then we just fire him an get another one. We can just keep swapping coaches and let finebomb handle recruiting. He has the schools best interest in mind.

    And one guy figured he knew why we didn't yet have an announcement on the new coach....
