seems like it might be time for a change to the thread title.
Maybe a Dodge Ram?
Saban sees Shrimp Boat Captain and 2019 LSU as a one hit wonder. He also does not want UF to have CS in any capacity. He is hording former HCs again to make another attempt to regain the One Ring!
Another thing to consider is that Saban’s window is closing. He won’t be coaching forever, so perhaps Strong would like to take the apprenticeship at Bama before Saban hangs it up. Once he’s retired that option to be an analyst on Saban’s staff and see exactly how he runs the program will be gone.
I am not sure Corch Strong is a good fit here under CDM. Don’t know. I agree with those who point out how much CS might learn from the Saban experience. There’s a process and I would like to learn it were I a young coach. TBH though I’m just not sure how much CS could help is here. Maybe some in recruiting? But even then, would you as a recruit really believe Coach Strong to be a good reason to be a Gator? Hope it turned out that we beat Strong while he’s at Bama. Also, think that if a DC position opens up CDM will offer if he’s the right guy, and I wouldn’t be surprised if that much was loosely agreed to. If I’m CDM I might even suggest he go there and learn the process. Too much?
It's a ploy. Send Strong to Bama to learn their secrets then hire him as the replacement to Grantham
Through what reasoning do you consider Charley Strong an improvement over Todd Grantham?
Title has been edited...(in case you haven't noticed!)
Did you forget to run and hide?
Because...IF YOU AIN’T A GATOR....
This is unreal honestly we should have Jettisoned Grantham and hired Strong.
Nick Saban's Career Rehabilitation Center.
I get it - Charlie is a favorite around here for good reason. But he is going to be an analyst - it’s a transitional job for him to find the next one. They are valuable to analyze film, chart tendencies, etc. They are not making a big finger print on the program.
He will be deciding “do I want to be a head coach again?” or “do I want to be a DC?” Or “college vs NFL?” and then taking one of those jobs in a year.
Charlie Strong joins Nick Saban's staff at Alabama as analyst
So, this didn't happen at UF. Not sure it would have been more than a temporary stop here, but, we would have welcomed him as a analyst, for sure.
So, moving on, what's the latest on Kerwin Bell?
Analysts cannot recruit off campus
I disagreed with you. There are at least 2 maybe as many as 4 who are DCs you hire.
But you want to FIRE Grantham and hire CS?
Charley needs some improvement after his HC runs. Let Alabama pay for it. When we hire an DC if Grantham leaves, we need an aggressive young coordinator who has proven he doesn’t run a prevent defense when someone can both pass and run. Quinn was the best defense coordinator Florida has seen and has proven it at the highest level. We can find another good young one and let him cut his teeth at the highest college level. You do a good job at Florida, the sky is the limit.
Stoopes wasn’t bad either
I'd like see Saban try to toss Charlie the keys to his Benz for a run through the carwash like ole Butchie...Charlie don't surf.
