    Can't whiff if the first guy you offer comes on board. Big names have to start somewhere. The AD at LSU that hired Nick away from Michigan State sure looks like a genius.

    Lukewarm on the hire and in a "Let's see what he can do" mode. Not thrilled about the HP offense, becuase we still have to make shots and handle the ball well when the defense pushes the ball out to around half-court. That's been the story the past 13 years. Let's see! I still remember the CMG HP offense.

    I'm excited by the hire and will be a supporter. I know I'll be making several trips to Coleman next year after not taking in a single game there this year for the first time since the 1999 season. We don't know how successful he will be, but by the same token there is no guarantee that Matta or <insert the big name you were hoping for> would be any more successful. Coach Saban taught us that everyone has a job to do and for us fans it is to cheer on our players. So, regardless of who you wanted as coach, Oats is now our guy and it's time to get behind him or get out of his way.

    Welcome Coach Oats, looking forward to good times and big wins. RTR!!!

    Re: Alabama Set to Hire Nate Oats From Buffalo

    A couple of things I like about this guy.

    First, the guy doesn't act like the job is "too big for him". He needs that when recruiting head to head versus some of the top teams in this league and the country.

    Second, Oats certainly isn't a "shrinking violet". The guy isn't afraid to say what he thinks and owns it like a boss.

    I'm not going to predict he is going bring a SEC championship to Tuscaloosa, but I think this guy is at least going to be fun to watch.

    I like he's smart, young, energetic. Young enough to relate to these young kids. I'm not going be neg until theirs something to be Neg about. A winner where ever he has been.

    This is the beginning of a new day.God has given me this day to use as I will. I can waste it or or use it for good.What I do today is very important because Im exchanging a day of my life for it.When tommorow comes,this day will be gone forever. Leaving something in its place I have traded for it. I want it to be a gain, not loss - good, not evil. Success, not failure in order that I Shall not forget the price I paid for it.

    It's OK for the HP to be part of your offense. It's not OK for it to be your total offense, as with CMG...
