You will like him. Runs a very good, classy program. Players are good students and he insists that they be active in the community and good people....no hint of any scandals by players or coaches in his history. In his 6 years as a head coach, he has won/shared league championships almost every year. His teams have not been flashy offensive teams, but that may have been more based on lack of a really good QB and receivers more than lack of a scheme.

Well liked and well respected by his players, media, and fans as well. There are some hurt feelings in the bearcatnation after this past week, by a small group, but most seem to wish him well and be willing to move ahead. Especially after yesterday's blockbuster surprise hiring...LOL

Side note re: new coach T @ UC.........his wife is from SE Indiana, just outside Cincinnati, parent-inlaw's and other family members still live there. Nephew is QB at local HS, worked with UC AD while both at Auburn, so he does have ties to the area. Still, major surprise to virtually everyone in the area......never heard his name even mentioned as possiblity.

Well, I guess you could say the only reason Alabama is not already NC, is they lost a game they should have won. That is why the game is played.

I'd be amazed if he came back for his JR year.

Lad, do you ever tire of being wrong? Since 1990, there have been 17 undefeated NC teams and 9 with 1 or more losses. So it's not "almost always the way it works."

By a pretty good margin, most NC teams don't "back into" a NC.

And Lad, I'm soon to be 64, and I'm pretty sure I've seen enough football for me to state a qualified opinion.

I will concede you one thing though, I'm pretty sure you know more about Canadian football than I do. American football, no so much.

I'm sure getting rid of that tool Sherman and picking up Sumlin, not to mention recruiting Jophnny Football had nothing to do with it. Oh, and I guess you completely forgot the fact that AR has PWNED the Ags up until this year.

Look the kid is great, no doubt. But he is barely 6' tall. NFL teams like their QB's a little taller. But RG3 is changing the game, so who knows?

He's got much more raw talent then Teebow, while he may not get drafted in the 1st couple rounds, he will get drafted. No sense submitting yourself to the kind of punishment and risk getting injured anymore then you have too.

You just reinforced what I was saying about the SEC and Texas A&M, and you don't even know it.

They didn't need woulda, shoulda, coulda, OSU, KSU and Oregon did.

Funny, Tressel was so desperate to beat a SEC team that he broke all the rules to be able to play those guys and still almost lost the game.

Saying someone has more raw talent than Tebow is not really saying much.

All I did was state facts. What's really sad, is aTm is 1-3 in the series since we started playing each other again and every game has been played in TEXAS.

He had enough talent to win a Heisman, and even get a few starts in the NFL. Even the worst player in the NFL has talent. But I get what you're saying. Compared to Tom Brady he's a joke. Believe me, I'm no Teebow fan, Dmac should have won that Heisman.

Yep, TA&M was mediocre in the Big 12 and once they got into the SEC, they are 9th in the country. All with a new coach, and a freshman red-shirt QB, and a 2011 record of 7-6, and a losing record of 4-5 in the Big 12.

Amazing what they have achieved in such a superior conference.
