    MIZZ whomever is going to poop her pants when the NCAA is presented with compelling evidence from interested parties that they have to send the letter.

    Bare Bryant did say he feared UF getting the right coach and awakening a sleeping giant.

    Japanese WWII Admiral, Yamamoto also said he feared Japan had awakened a sleeping giant in UF by the 1941 attack on Hawaii.

    Now Saben's wife says the same.

    Wow.

    Auburn is a good school. I’ve known several Auburn engineers.

    Bama is a very average state school with a great football team.

    Saban knows about our success when Tebow was here, and Mullen had a lot to do with it. He knows Mullen did the impossible in StarkVegas. And he also realizes Mullen is fixing to build a juggernaut at UF the same way Saban did at LSU and BAMA. Saban knows Mullen is an all around excellent coach, recruiter, student of the game, talent evaluator, talent developer, and CEO. And he knows Stricklin and Mullen are a force to be reckoned with. Saban's time is limited, he now has to deal with Dabo and Dan.

    Just tell her to stop listening to her husband and call Finebaum. He'll reassure her that there's no need for concern.

  7. Conspiracy theory confirmed. Alabama fears Florida. Nick Saban sent us Will Muschamp and Jim McElwain to derail the Florida program. Dan Mullen does not come from the Alabama coach inbreeding tree, so they fear Mullen's Gators!

    Like the theme. Go Gators.

    But I predict Ta&m is a closer headache for Saban.

    Laugh now but watch ... the future of the SEC is Jimbo v CDM.

    Let's see the recruiting class before we go there. TAMU putting together a monster class. Mizzou has a great coach as well. And don't think Georgia is going away.

    Great or successful people can come from any school....or no school.
    But I am delighted that Mizz Terry feels the way she does.

    Lotta my family has attended Auburn. It is a solidly good school and on the rise. Engineering and vet schools two of the best in the country. They are making a concerted effort to rise in the rankings. Not UF good by any stretch but they are trying.

    Bama let’s you in if you can sign your name. Or if someone in your family can.

    This exactly.
    My take on this is that there is a ceiling on UGA. You can have your share of 5 star talent as UGA does but getting them to perform at the highest level, with good chemistry, takes a lot of talent. Saban is confident that he can best KS though I'm sure he is wary.

    He also saw what Mullen did to BAma first hand with 3rd rate talent (on an SEC level) and knows where this is going. Saban is no dummy.
    Remember that State and Bama were tied with 2 minutes to go in Mullen's last year. That Bama team won the NC.

    It does remind me of the many less than brilliant posters we've had on here that questioned the hire because of Mullen's record vs top 10 teams and his lack of top 10 recruiting.
    Coaches, like saban, knew what Mullen was up against, and appreciated what he accomplished.

    Idiot armchair QBs saw that he didn't win an NC, or recruit a bunch of 5 stars, and thought he would be the same coach here as at State.

    Agree. Dan also stomped Orgeron and LSU that last season in StarkVegas.

    MSU has never won a NC in any sport since that school was founded. That says it all for anyone who thinks Mullen didn't achieve enough in StarkVegas.

    Meyer and UF were never the same once Dan left. Our offense floundered for almost a decade until Dan's return a season ago.

    I'm gonna be "that guy" and I'm sorry because I know it's obnoxious.

    There's no proof as far as I know that he actually said that - it's a popular myth from Tora! Tora! Tora! but it was either made up or misattributed.

    On topic: Mizz Terry is a smart lady

    I bet Ward Pell (Charley's wife) would know if Bear ever said anything to that affect. If anyone knew, it would be those two. My dad was good friends with Ward until his passing. If he were still alive, I would have had him ask her.

    I was actually being totally off topic and talking about Yamamoto, not The Bear. I guess I coulda been clearer. Like I said, I hate to be that guy but hey...
