It’s all fun and games until someone gets dbl going again...
if we get butch jones ill fuck myself with a chainsaw.
Can we get that double sided chainsaw?
Could I borrow it once you're finished?
are you saying you'd join me in a Requiem for a Dream style chainsaw fucking?
Give me Chip Long as OC, the Memphis oline coach, and Lance Taylor, and I'll be satisfied on the offensive side of the ball. Go ahead and use the other offensive assistant on that side as well, and hire a minority.
Lance Taylor is such a downgrade from Gattis.
I don't know anything about Taylor, why is he such a hot name in this thread for the WR job? haven't the Carolina WR's sucked a bag of dicks the last few years?
Tosh supposed to go in-home with To'oto'o early next week. Makes me think he's staying.
Sure but Gattis has been wanting to be OC since before he came here. Seems like that wasn't an option either.
I really don't know shit about Taylor but I hope he just needs to come back to Bama to turn into a machine. Sounds like he at least has some HS connections I guess idk.
Yea I know we couldn’t keep Gattis. I just think we can do much better than Lance Taylor. Seems his main qualification for the job is that he played at Alabama. That’s not good enough.
I mean his resume isn't bad at all. NFL WRs coach for a couple of years, offensive assistant at Stanford for 3-4 years. I think he'd probably be a step down from Gattis, but I'm fine with that resume.
Yeah I don't know. I like to think you don't just get an NFL coaching job by not being at least competent, but Jeff Fisher held a much more import position for a dozen years or more, so that isn't true.
Then again Mike Shula had Carolina humming on offense a few years ago, so weird things happen in coaching, idk.
I mean he was an NFL WR coach. How is that not qualified?
Do we have any idea if Taylor can recruit? He's going to be absolutely stacked at the position for this year and likely in a great position next year, so coaching won't be a major issue early in his tenure at least
You are missing out on some top tier comfort
Not realistic because of his past, or not realistic because you think he'd turn us down remain a "head coach"? I put that in quotes because I have to assume in the hierarchy of coaching ranks being an OC at Alabama is higher than being an HC at Liberty.
idk if this is good or bad for Stanford. He did get them Bryce Love.
Probably pretty good. Stanford has so few guys that they can offer due to academics. They are really good at reeling in the guys that they can get.
2 kids from Mobile too so I assume he had that area. That's a plus.
More that I think the SEC/Greg Sankey won't allow it. I mean we were on Freeze immediately last year and they said no. He was supposed to be a candidate for OC at Auburn. Just seems like they're trying to blackball him
Looks pretty damn good for Stanford. Obviously recruiting Alabama is a different ballgame
Saban should tell Sankey to fuck himself and hire Hugh anyways. What the hell can they do to Saban?
I ruthlessly mock any of my friends that wear lululemon.
It’s a real shame they’re attempting to slander this young man
Have they always made mens clothes? I bought a lady friend a couples pairs of yoga pants last year because that’s all her and her friends talked about. This thread is the first I’ve seen men mention their clothes.
I’m also 37 this month and have 6 pair of vans in my closet so I doubt I qualify to discuss fashion
That probably has already been posted but I quickly looked over the last 5 pages
I'd give up buying sneakers for a month to get Stoutland back.
Take away the fact that he played at Alabama, do you say, we have to have this guy as an on the field coach at Alabama? I don’t. If he’s hired, I’m certainly not rooting against him but right now, it’s a very underwhelming potential hire.
Miss the Pendry days. Wish he’d blow off that Birmingham shit
I don’t think they always have but for a few years at least. Or maybe they have and it just took a couple of years for it to be socially acceptable (still, lol) for men to wear it in Alabama.
Didn't he suck at recruiting but was great on the field? I guess we could use him as a stopgap for a year or two with the talent we already have on campus
Nobody is saying we have to have this guy. But I don't see how that is a very underwhelming potential hire. When we hired Gattis, he had what 3 years at Vandy and 3 at Penn State? The only difference is all of his experience was at WR.
I seem to remember it the same way but I still jerk off every couple weeks to the 2012 OL so there's that.
Lot of insecure dudes in here. What else do you guys do to make yourself feel more like a man?
Joe has zero desire to get back on the Saban grind. Can’t blame him, either.
I believe Gattis was considered more than that. I’m pretty sure he was essentially their Co-OC and their best recruiter.
Doesn’t matter. Men, women, children, the elderly
No. Moorhead was the OC. When Moorhead left and Franklin didn't think enough of Gattis to make him OC, Gattis left.
Missed this earlier, Carolina actually has a nice short write up on his accomplishments so far in his career, so first I'd refer you to it: https://www.panthers.com/team/coaches-roster/lance-taylor
I'm not a Carolina fan, nor do I watch a significant amount of their games, but it's not surprising (and pretty typical of a franchise) to make moves like this after an extremely disappointing season where they went into it with playoff expectations (their last half of the season was abyssmal and their passing game production fell off hard from recent years), especially coming off of a proficient season in terms of guys targeted/number of players with rec. TD's in 2017.
Obviously I am going to be a bit biased here but what I can say is he drew high praise from Saban during his time as a GA here and left with high recommendation. Everywhere he has been thus far has seen an increase in production from his positional group, and Stanford guys including McCaffrey himself credit a lot of his success to LT.
A question I'd ask in response to yours would be, who is an available top tier WR coach that we should realistically instead be interested in? Tee Martin? A guy who would be in and out in a year or two as he's obviously looking for an elite coordinator job... On top of this, there is the fact that WR coach is arguably the least important of all on field slots (not saying it isn't important, Gattis showed us this). Whoever we bring in isn't going to ruin our current corps and will likely learn from being around a group as talented as them.
At the very worst, he would be an average/young coach with too much Bama in him and his best days still ahead that will recruit his ass off from GO. I haven't sat across a table and talked X and O's with a mind like Saban so I'm easily impressed by somebody like Taylor in that regard, but I have sat across the table from an elite bagman in a younger Lance Thompson that was recruiting some of our St. Paul's boys, and I can say without a doubt I'd rather have Taylor representing us in front of mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, uncle and who the hell ever else alongside x-recruit. Toss him on a guy like Fleming and we'll be in it to the end.
I know it won’t happen. Just reminiscing our Oline going forward one yard on every snap no matter what
I can’t fight either :(
Who exactly would you like them to hire as a WR coach? Who do you really feel you know enough about to be wow'd with the hire?
