    I know you guys lost a ton after I think the 16 season, but is this the most saban has ever lost from one staff?

    Feels like we lose at least half our staff every year. This year seems heavier than usual but nobody is too concerned about it.

    The best job Saban has done at Bama is keeping us from not noticing too much. Ed O’s debacle this year proved how difficult it is to keep the train rolling.

    He knows South Florida, which is a must for that job. Being a Saban assistant, I'm sure he has the connections to put together a good staff as well. Could work out.

    I didn’t think it is any reason for concern as long as saban is there, was just asking

    It's a shame Bryce Young didn't get a chance to really get some reps vs OSU. Think Bama will regret shielding him like they did this year when they're in deep dark waters next season

    Huff is a good coach and dude. Great recruiter. High energy. Franklin stumped pretty hard for him to get this job.

    it kinda slipped under the radar that the governor of west virginia personally decided that his alma mater needed a coaching change so he forced them to fire their very successful coach

    “He called the governor, the house of representatives, the AD, the president, guys on the board, gave me a rundown about the history, pitfalls, what I need to be prepared for,” Huff said of Saban. “He said, ‘I want you to get this job. I don’t want to lose you, but I want you to chase your dreams.’”

    Very successful might be a stretch. The guy hasn’t one a Beef ‘O’ Brady bowl since 2011. Also, he goes by Doc even thought he’s not one so that’s stolen valor.
