    Before the game the announcers were talking about all the valuable experience we have on our coaching staff with Stockstill, Tommy West, Fanklin, etc. I would trade all of them for Charlotte's coach. Our group of geriatrics are not taking us anywhere.

    I did. :) I knew we would lay an egg. We really suck on the road this year. Haven't won one yet.

    College coaching and recruiting is a young man’s game. It’s competitive and it’s hard. And you win more with “raw talent” than “potential” that can be “coached up”.

    Winning in momma’s and grandma’s living room in February carries over to winning on Saturdays in the Fall.

    Does Alabama even recruit? This is apples to oranges here. A G5 school has to work three times as hard as one of the blue bloods to sign talent.

    Title of thread implies a young up and coming coach is greater than an old experienced coach not coaches. It is not always the case. Also saying that because Charlotte beat us is kinda dumb. If we hire a young up and coming coach next year and go to Marshall and get blown out by Doc Holliday would we say an old experienced coach is better than a young up and coming? Could be just as simple as say Charlotte was better than is that day.

    No. What we have here is an ineffective athletic department and an ineffective coaching staff who refuses to believe that we have regressed in football and a leader in Cope who rubber stamps anything this regime wants. Even if we get to 6-6, this season is ruined with the loss to Charlotte. That’s what I see; at least 28 years without an outright championship because we cannot win one now.

    I am not defending the athletic department or the coaching staff. I am just saying that to say a young up and coming coach is greater than an old experienced coach is not always true.
