    Bo Davis is a highly regarded coach and Saban has hired him multiple times. He’s a good recruiter and good coach. I think Texas fans are meh because we sucked when he was here but he’s about as good of a DL coach as you can get.

    I’d just love to have an elite recruiter on staff regardless of position, a la Lupoi or Brewster.

    Pipe dream or not, there’s been multiple people saying Sark has talked to Tosh. So why wouldn’t we talk about it?

    Because I know better than to buy into the "dream recruiting all star staff" hype by now, for fucks sake we've gone through this song and dance like 5 times in the last decade.

    Sure, but this staff is already way better than Charlie and Tom’s. A man can dream that Texas will prioritize recruiting again in the near future. Tom and Charlie hired craptastic recruiters for assistants.

    I'll reserve judgment until I see for sure who the DC hire is, if its some shit like Golding then I've got very mild expectations for the Sark era.

    Going to disagree with you. Tosh was a horrible DC, but I always thought he was a good OLB coach.

    its not a coaching search until Texas raises the salary of the rest of CFB by the GDP of a 3rd world country.

    But did bo Davis recruit well when he didn’t have the Bama war machine to help him close?

    Bama has had so many elite recruiters who go elsewhere and suddenly can’t recruit for shit minus the guys like kiffin, cristobal, tosh who had already established themselves as top recruiters prior to getting to Bama

    Also I feel like Corey Raymond will die as the LSU DB coach

    every time there is an opening his name gets floated and mods suggest teams will give him a co-DC title to sweeten the deal...and the damn guy never leaves

    Nope. Was just a post by a moderator. His position specialty is safety so it would seem his spot was filled by the Auburn coach.

    He’d probably be fine for a big 12 dc, but where are these whispers coming from. I’ve just seen speculation because Sark wants to wait until after the championship game to announce the DC to avoid distractions.

    no mods are saying this, but with there being almost no talk on dc and other positions are starting to get hired..it is starting to get assumed it is golding and just waiting for the natty to end.

    If Golding is the DC, I have zero doubt that Saban told Sark he had to take him.

    Word is he’s unbelievable on the chalk board but he struggles to convey those concepts in an easily digestible manner to our players. We’re often unorganized at the snap and late to react because of having too many assignments/responsibilities. He also loves delayed safety blitzes and dropping 8 on 3rd and long. All of this would be somewhat palatable if he provided anything on the recruiting trail, but he doesn’t.

    Gotcha

    If he likes to see the formation before he gets the call in (most DCs do, lack of huddling + less shifting + simple spread formations has made this the norm), he better be sharp Monday. What Day did with tempo against Clemson will be copy-catted by every offense next season. Kind of a common sense adjustment to defenses that want to play multiple fronts and see the formation before making the call
