We've actually been paying more for head coaches than Alabama paid for Saban. Two ****ty coaches cost more than one elite one. And our revenue has basically been stagnant for 14 years as we drop from top three to top 15.
But we just won a NC in women's blindfolded watermelon seed spitting.

He has more than Ratliff?
Yes. Pat Dooley brought it up during an interview the other day. Spikes said he reminds the LBs that he wasn’t just a run-stopper. Holding that record means a lot to him. I don’t know how many Keiwan had, but it was less than 4.

He was a ballhawk and great in our spy type coverages.

It is hard to imagine losing a guy that large in coverage, but clearly QBs did.

Not to diminish what Spikes accomplished, but when Lito or Haden or Weary or Kennedy made picks, it was usually 20+ yards downfield so they had to go through a bunch of traffic to get a pick 6.

When Spikes made a pick, it was typically within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage and everybody except the OL and QB (and maybe a RB trying to pass block) were behind him so he was more likely to convert that pick into a pick 6.

Again, not to diminish his record. I'm a huge Spikes fan.

Exactly why dink and dunk ball is high-risk/low-reward. When you complete it, you get 4-6 yards. When you fail, they get 6 points. And when you don't throw the ball down field, why wouldn't the defense sit on the low routes?

I’ve always said all of these numbers are kind of skewed because of the different styles of offenses we were running when each player was here. Where guys like Lito, Weary, Teako, Haden, etc were routinely playing loose because we were up by four scores and teams had to throw, Ratliff, Tabor, VH3, and others were often in tight, one score games where they had little margin for error and opposing teams could remain more balanced.
