At this point how are they convinced saban will be his HC the entire time?
Saban is a living legend in college football. We've not seem his equivalent in our lifetime. I don't think he has to be a great salesman or have a particular type of personality to recruit well. He just shows interest in a kid, flashes his rings, shows them their NFL success, and gets pretty much whoever he wants. I know they lose a few, but honestly the rest of us are playing second fiddle and taking their leftovers for the most part. Clemson and OSU have success on the trail, too, of course. But Saban has intangibles that no other program does. Bowden was probably the last to even come close. For many of them, it is almost the equivalent to the POTUS personally asking an adult to come serve in Washington. He calls, you go.
I'll be very happy when he hangs it up.
Saban doesn’t recruit, he selects
Imagine how CFB would be if Tebow went to Bama....Saban never ends up in Bama as they woulda had a solid season in 06 enabling them to believe in Shula
Saban turns 69 in October 2020
Saban and Sankey did what?
I personally think he has plenty of good years in him. He's a "young 70", IMO. This is his last gig. Its a machine with a lot of momentum and little to suggest it is slowing down. Without any personal insight, I'd expect him to be at it another 5 years or more.
It actually started slowing down last year, we’ll see where they finish recruiting wise.
Nobody has ever been close, not even the dead bear with his imaginary titles.
Loved watching Cadillac play
I still think when push comes to shove urbs is the greatest recruiter ever. If u look back urban was the one that changed the way people recruited really. Saban has always been a killer on the trail but it wasn’t until a few years into his Bama tenure that he absolutely started stockpiling silly amounts of studs. Urbans time at uf should be looked back on as a watershed moment for the way these coaches handled recruiting. Specifically the way he began treating d line recruiting.
Thought i responded. Seeing Foster as RB coach at UCLA, Cadillac at Auburn, Hartline as WR coach at OSU, makes me hope we pluck Robert from UNC to coach the RB's but it won't happen
Saw last night on the replay of the Auburn game that Knox had been with Mullen for 11 years (so 12 this year), the 3rd longest association with Mullen on the staff.
Doesnt he aspire to be an offensive coordinator or head coaching. I think we need to work on boosting knox’s aspirations to more than just rb coach.
I've always been taught that you advance by aspiring to be great at your current level and position, not by focusing on your next.
Dre Bly is another guy coaching at his prior school at UNC. Yeah I like to see him and Mike Peterson back.
Knox has been that long with Mullen because no one is interested in hiring him away from Mullen.
Not saying Knox has done all aspects of his job well; there's an obvious issue in recruiting. But, maybe Dan grasps the big picture better than we do in regards to what he brings to the table. Who knows; I don't.
