Seems a possibility but he only wins half the time.
Saban looked like he was going to have a coronary and maybe I hoped just a little that he would.
Here's a highlight vid of the Cotton Bowl game. Some good plays by Emory - and other players - gives one optimism for a decent season next year.
IMHO, it usually always comes down to the quarterback and next season will be no different.
Kirby is certainly not out-coaching us.
When we start recruiting better (and whatever that takes to happen) and when there is some more continuity with the coaching staff!!!
That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
After Saban retires.
Yet coach O won last year. Don’t give up so easy.
Great recruiting and poor coaching gets you Ron Zook.
You don't get to the SECCG in 3 short years by recruiting alone.
Average class ranking: 2.2
Projected ESPN 300 prospects on 2021 roster: 61
Georgia has seen a lot of success recruiting under Kirby Smart, landing the No. 1-ranked class in 2018, the No. 2 class twice and the No. 3 class twice over the past five cycles. To finish at worst third overall is impressive, and given what is returning, Georgia has a shot at making noise in 2021.
JT Daniels, who transferred in from USC, and he's coming back next season along with approximately eight other starters on offense. In addition to Daniels, the coaches signed ESPN 300 quarterback Brock Vandagriff in 2021, who is the No. 34-ranked recruit overall.
In the final four games of the season, all started by Daniels, the team averaged 486 total yards per game, 310.8 pass yards per game and 7.51 yards per play. Compare that to the first six games when Georgia's offense averaged 382.2 yards per game, 209.3 pass yards per game and 5.42 yards per play. Having Daniels back along with more competition at that position only serves as a positive for Georgia.
Most of the returning players next season are on offense, which bodes well for continuity. If Georgia can see some production out of some of the younger offensive players as well, that will be an added bonus. From 2019 to 2021, Georgia signed 29 top-100 recruits, including five-stars Nolan Smith, Clay Webb, Kelee Ringo, Broderick Jones, Jalen Carter and Smael Mondon.
Which teams are primed for success in 2021 based on their recruiting classes?
He's a great recruiter.
Feel confident that if Mullen had his talent he'd be more successful!
The 5th of Neveruary!!
Their roster includes 70 Top 300 players! It's crazy.
We were within a thrown shoe, a fumble and several opt outs from a great season and possible play off spot without a very good defense. DM needs to find some good D linemen who have the size, strength and skill to become dominant. That's what it'll take! Be a hard driving HBC who show's the players where they can go and to not be satisfied with being good but becoming great. Hire Tim to be the leadership coach.
I’m not sure, what about on Friday? I’m good with Friday!
...we're not even in the same universe as Georgia as far as recruiting goes. Coaching, I feel good. Defense...we'll see. All of their offensive production can be disrupted and slowed down. If our receivers learn to catch-like this years kids. And our defenders learn to defend-like years past. And if our guys up front can push guys around a little-there's hope. As always, the other teams needs to suck when they play us for added benefit
I believe that adds up to a 2 point win....
But sadly Mullen doesn't have the talent and he has only himself to blame.
Next season doesn't look very good for upsetting the poodles.

What your Alabama friend said may be true, but if that was the case, it was a colossal mistake on Saban’s part; because, although unlikely, with a better time management, Alabama could have lost the game against us. (See Galen Hall who prematurely let up in the 1985 against Rutgers, only to have them come back to tie).
It has been my observation that Nick doesn’t make those kind of mistakes, he certainly doesn’t “ let up” with a championship on the line.
We had the worst defense in the history of Gator football since 1917... The "Spanish" flu and Corona Virus have something in common for Gator football... I think TG has to be part of that unload before we can win the SEC/Natty again.
If there was a let-up, it wasn't initiated by Saban in any way. But individuals might have chilled a little bit thinking they were going to win easily the way Najee and Smith were carving up our D.
I know it's tacky to reply to your own thread but I have been trying to find an article where somebody from Alabam admits that the Gators challenged them in the SEC championship game. I did find this one:

SEC Championship Game: Alabama football runs table, but Florida a struggle
ATLANTA — All the boxes were checked in the end: the SEC championship, the first and only all-league 11-0 record and, certainly, the No. 1 ranking when the College Football Playoff semifinals are announced Sunday morning.
It didn’t come easy. It didn’t come cheap.
Christian Harris sealed Alabama's 52-46 win over Florida on Saturday by sacking Kyle Trask on the final play, the rare defensive highlight. It took everything that Alabama’s offense could muster to make it happen.
