From what your saying, your idea of "pure coaching" is merely some one who can diagram x's and o's, and call certain plays/timeouts/fakes at the right time in a game.
You treat the other stuff such as "his ability to get his players to play hard for 60 minutes" as ancil...

Maybe you expect every one to be at the top of their profession from day 1 or be considered a failure, but that's just not real life.

Debate that year to get in the championship wasn't between LSU-Bama but between Bama-ok state. I knew there'd be an LSU fan who'd try and bring that up even though it doesnt apply. And I cant believe yall would ever bring that shite up, the result of the rematch (21-0) va...

(1) No way in hell should they even think about leaving FSU out. Personally, I still think they should be number one as the last undefeated and defending champs, but in the final 4 will work.
(2) eliminate tcu from the discussion and debate between OSU and Baylor. TCU and Baylor played the sam...

Everything I have heard about this incident is people who were actually in the stadium stating specifically that it did not happen or that they never heard it. include me in that. Never heard it at all (or the stupid "luck is dead" either)... So far all of the people who say it's true heard about ...

I was also at the game, did not happen. At least, it did not happen where I or anyone else heard it, other than Auburn fans who love to think badly about all Bama fans.......

One of the more exciting Iron Bowls that I can remember. Probably not quite to the level of last year considering both teams were in the running last year (and that damn last second...) but this years edition was electric from beginning to end. Im just glad Bama was able to win one of these types o...

Bama was losing the entire game against Auburn during its 2009 undefeated run, and had this final touchdown in the last minute to take the lead:

Alright guys, I need some help. I was never very good at Halo back in the day (and never had a 360 so never played halo past halo 2s campaign). Got the Xbone though, and was excited about getting to play the full series, and also try my hand at multiplayer.
Too bad i fricking suck at multiplayer...

McNulty and the Bunk. They could take over the show and kill off Rick and co and I'd be alright with it. Imagine a scene when they enter a zombie infested house and say "frick. Mother fricker!" Every time they turn the corner and run into another walker.

I think Sims is the guy, and I hope Saban goes ahead and announces it this week: I think he should have another preparation week as the full time starter before going up against Florida,
Offense just appeared more crisp with Sims in there...

Already after game 1, there is unrest with Saban. When I watched the game yesterday I noticed (and have before) that our fans in the stands don't just look disappointed when another team scores or does something positive, but look disgusted that Alabama would allow it to happen. Sims looked fine ...

His philosophy has won him 4 National Titles. Yea when they are young they do seem to be thinking too much, but if you have watched Alabama for more than one singular game and have some perspective, I'd hope you realize that by the time players are experienced and his system is ingrained, it create...
