Re: Alabama Set to Hire Nate Oats From Buffalo

Have to give it to Greg Byrne. He put out a nice smoke screen because the majority of people with intel started saying Matta about an hour ago.

Not sure about Oats, though.

Is it bad that our coach’s name sounds like a brand of cereal lol. I’ll have to look him up because I know nothing about him..

Underwhelmed. Someone please explain to me the rationale for this hire. What on his resume is so impressive? I don’t see anything, other than some good years while coaching at the HIGH SCHOOL level.

Buffalo teams have been good but not much experience. Interesting

Let’s hope he’s hungry and this is his idea of a dream job.

Re: Alabama Set to Hire Nate Oats From Buffalo

Still happy with it but was hoping Matta. Could end up being better for the long run though, seems like he has promise. They ranked top 30 in offense and defense efficiency last year. Now hopefully he can get Lewis and Petty back

Glad to see people are taking this well after thinking Billy Donovan was coming to Alabama.

He beat Arizona last year in the tournament. He was in the tournament this year. That’s better than his predecessor
