    Folks put too much emphasis on this with coaches IMO; especially those that aren’t “young” (20s-30s).
    If they’re into becoming the best coach they can be, they’ll go where they can do that, alma mater notwithstanding.

    My solution is this: No Twitter. No Facebook. No Instragram. No Pinterest. No nothing anything like them. Not only do I not have an account on any of them, I never have. Only things close to social media I've ever been a part of are TideFans (time exceedingly well spent), and LinkedIn (my employer made me, and I'm not there more than a minute or two a month).

    Also don't listen to talk radio of any kind, let alone sports talk radio, except at the top and bottom of the hour. Some good interviews then. But if they're, "taking calls," I'm on Sirius Classic Rock.

    Life is short, and so much more enjoyable when not hearing the random musings of Charles From Reeltown and his buddies.
    26 is getting very repetitive. Deep Tracks requires a channel change (as does classic vinyl).
    26 just plays the same (great) songs by the same artists over and over and over and over... I finally cancelled my subscription, I’ll just play my cd’s.

    True. Pruitt took a good defense and made it better. FSU’s defense just declined each year after when Kelly was in charge. On the positive side he is supposed to be a good recruiter.

    I don’t think it’s the 20’s and 30’s crowd putting so much emphasis on Alma matter I see a lot of posters in their 50’s and 60’s who still believe Dabo is coming to Bama because “moma called”. Most of the 20-30 year old fans don’t feel too concerned about where someone graduated mostly because the two most successful coaches in their lives didn’t play a down at Alabama. I think you see mostly folks alive at some point off CPB’s reign feel strongly about Alma matter hires.

    What's CNS to do? Rent Dabo's staff?

    The staff we're seeing come together looks to be a mixture of stable "Not a Stepping Stone" coaches and some experienced "Up-and-Comers" from where I'm sitting.

    I wanted to look the stats up to see what was going on. In 2011 FSU was 6th in total defense, in 2012 they were 4th, in 2013 when Pruitt arrived they finished 4th. We know Pruitt is good, but credit has to be given to Mark Stoops.

    In 2009, before Mark Stoops arrived, Florida St. was 108th in total defense! 108! His first year he got them to 43, then 6th. The thing to pay attention to though is that by the time Charles Kelly arrives, he's now a couple years removed from what Mark Stoops did for that defense, and he didn't hit the ground running (didn't they lose some key guys though?). First year on the job, they tumble to 64th. He did right the ship though, they were 18th, 20th, and 20th. Solid if not spectacular and does demonstrate that he knew how to run a college defense.

    This year (without him of course), Florida St. fell to 70th... he's no Mark Stoops, but he seems plenty competent.

    Re: Looking like the following for assistants...

    1) Everything that Jimbo buillt at FSU crumbled because of a painful divorce and FSU not playing ball with him like they should. More or less he was far less motivated to coach there from 2015-17. You can blame assistant coaches all you want but when the leader isn’t focused the entire team is in disarray.

    2) Pruitt wasn’t great at FSU and UGA, but he showed he was very competent in how to defend the modern offenses. Both jobs are very good for real experience. So he earned every dollar of that 1.3 million dollar check. CNS was also far more familiar with him and his coaching style. It’s why I don’t see Alabama bidding with that kinda money for anyone less than venerables, Chavis, or Arranda’s caliber of defensive coaching.

    Looking like the following for assistants...

    The funniest thing about this is that if you think whoever CNS hires is “meh” or bad you are essentially saying he doesn’t know what a good defensive coach looks like. I think most would agree that CNS knows a thing or two about defense so if a candidate for the DC passes his vetting I’ll be pretty ok with it.

    Priutt led FSU to the #2 ranked defense in 2013 that shut down AU in the 2nd half to win the BCSNCG and improving UGA's defense from 45th to 7th in 2 seasons is pretty darn good. Priutt was a super star DC from the moment he became one.

    Pruitt is the best DC we had and the preceding two were top flight (Steele and Smart)
    I owe it to the people to have a signature...so here goes nothing!

    I meant 20-30 year old coaches, not fans.
