A DAILY LOOK 'TWEEN THE HEDGES
Kirby would be a good one...it may be hard to get him to leave Saban...they have a good thing going over there and it will probably stay good for a long time...I'm proud for him and Alabama...they're showing the rest of us how to turn things around...did anyone happen to notice that Alabama had 1...as in one...penalty for 5 yards?like I just said,they're showing the rest of us a few things...later,old dawg
Absolutely old Dawg. I thought to myself late in the 4th, Bama isn't hurting itself at all. So I was not shocked this morning when I read there was only one penalty.One advantage Richt has over Saban is that Smart would be quoted more in Athens. He would actually see the lens of a camera. I still see it as a long shot since his price could go high if FSU comes to the table as well.But if I'm Coach Richt I'd like to hear him say no to a multi-year and very fair offer before I move along.
How ironic is it that the BCS National Championship game features two UGA Alumni as the DC's. It's just not right.
I love me some Kirby Smart, but I have to say that getting him is an outside shot. We'd have no shot, imo, if he didn't have a history with the program. We need to at least try for it, though with a fair offer.
I'm probably going to gt flamed for this, but if I were Kirby Smart, I wouldn't come back to save my life. And it would be all because of us fans (yes I am one too).One of the first message boards that I ever remember reading was Dawg Run or Dawg Vent or something like that and they ripped him limb from limb and cut him to the damn bone as a player.You think Bryan Evans gets it bad??? Kirby Smart got it 100x worse. If he ever read any of that stuff, there is no way he would want to come back to our fanbase. We really are some horrible fans at times.Even though playing and coaching are two different animals, I find it hilarious that probably the same people that ripped him a new one back in the day are drooling all over him to be the DC today.
Nick Saban said he wants his coaches to work to up the ladder and he didn't think a lateral move would be wise.In this case he's wrong.As long as Kirby stays at Bama people will be saying it's Saban's defensive genius,not Smart's.On the other hand,Kirby could come home and turn around one of the worst defenses in the SEC and prove he's head coach material.
