      Being objective then, it had happened 4 times since 1970 (9+ wins). Before that, vaught was a savage in the 50's. I'm not sure how much that discredits kiffen doing it in 2 though. As much as you want to bash the schdule, what other coaches would you put money on getting 10 wins with this ole miss roster? There would be questions about stuff like roster building long-term, but his in-season stuff this year is very impressive no matter how 'imperfect' bama is.

      Edit: I didn't check if the other 9-win seasons were regular season or including post-season. So possible that there had been even less equivalents.

            Coaches are getting absurd money now. Tucker 9 million to stay st sparty. Franklin 7 million at to stay Psu. Aranda is gonna get paid to stay. Even Freeze is getting 4 million to stay at Liberty.

            So if you want a solid P5 coach you gotta pay up and LSU is willing to do that. Meanwhile UF who apparently has no money is relegated to finding the Foley up and coming coach for pennies on the dollar.

                This will be interesting to watch play out this season. Of the top 10 ppg teams, only UGA and Coastal Carolina run significantly more than pass. UGA is 60%, but that is probably in part due to killing clock in blowouts and the defense scoring or setting up short fields. (CC is 60% too - and who cares?) Most - including OSU and Bama are around 50/50, or say 52/48 one way or the other.

                Only UGA(#1) and Cincy(#7) are top 10 in defense and offense.

                Can UGA’s #1 defense shut down Bama and OSU’s offenses and clearly superior quarterbacks better that OSU’s #15 and Bama’s defenses can stop Stetson Bennett?

                I think the better QBs have the edge. UGA hasn’t played any great QBs yet. But we’ll see.

                  Stricklin heard he can get the Bishop Sycamore coach on the cheap. Stay tuned, might have this one bagged by Sunday.

                    We'll see if Kiffin's lucky win last night gets him as high as 35th in recruiting - I doubt it. He remains such an embarrassing and effing idiot on the sideline.

                    Since no one seems interested in hiring him (which should tell you a lot), and he'll have a new QB next year, expect a 6-6 season, at best. He's a clown, a mascot, a fool, a moron, a punch line. He's Marshall Henderson as a head coach.

                      Let's not forget the stupid decision to go for it on fourth down from your own 34 on the opening drive. A good team would have made him pay. In fact, Alabama did.

                          It’s similar to Kirk Firenze years ago. Or Mullen at MSU or Stoops at KY. He’s done better than you’d expect with less talent in a conference dominated by an elite program or 2. Iowa State is a never-was and never-will-be sort of place.

                          Developing a decent program in those circumstances is laudable but doesn’t usually translate into elite success at a place like UF, USC, or TX where the potential is high.

                          It can (Saban), or an elevated coordinator might (Day) or maybe even a position coach (Dabo) or a G5 guy (Meyer) or a retread NFL guy (Carroll). The problem is they are rare. There is no formula. The right guy at the right time in the right place is super tough to align.

                          Once they have proven themselves, you can’t get ‘em.

                                They are ranked 100th in defense - 100th.

                                The two come as a package that can’t and shouldn’t be overlooked. But it will. We once again lock in on the first candidate.

                                Just as total offense doesn’t matter if RZ efficiency sucks, total defense takes a back seat to PPG. You need look no further than the post you quoted for the answer.

                                      Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
