Very similar to Ron Zook imo. Yes, he is a very good recruiter and has assembled and is assembling a lot of young talent, but he is a very poor gameday coach.
It has been obvious throughout his entire tenure. Coaches as bad as him do not win anything of note. The question becomes how long do you...

I think it is a toss up. Saban has proven to be the best coach in the conference, but LSU's young players rival VOLS as far as productivity this year and promise moving forward.
Does next year's prime time game in Tuscaloosa determine the West or will one of these two teams slip up before then?...

At Tennessee he stopped pressing as he began brining in elite recruits. He said repeatedly that he did not believe pressing could work in the NCAA Tournament after losing in the Sweet 16 in back to back years with it.
What has he said since he has been back in coaching? Has he changed his philoso...
