    Edit: You talking about Francione? Actually, Mike Shula replaced Mike Price (who never coached an actual game for Bama) who replaced Dennis Francione (who left for Texas A&M). Yeah, there are the times between National Championships. The next guy hired will not be “the greatest coach in the history of college football.” Alabama won’t be dominant for a little while. I’m prepared.

    Kalen Deboer to Alabama. Stunning move there. Guess he knew losing Penix and Rome would put Washington back to mediocrity.

    You don't think he has what it takes to keep Alabama a powerhouse?

    No. Can he win a NC there? Yes. But, he’s not the next best coach in history. They will struggle, by Alabama standards, for a while.

    Dennis Franchione, left Alabama for Texas A&M

    Have you only been an Alabama fan for 15 years :p

    More than 2 great Alabama coaches too, at least 3, maybe 4. Guessing you forgot Frank Thomas and Wallace Wade :)

    Okay. I’ve been alive for 47 years and been an Alabama fan (or some semblance) for 47 years. My point was, Bear Bryant and Nick Saban are considered the greatest college football coaches ever. (Wallace Wade and Thomas were way before my time and aren’t in the consideration anyway.). I’ve been a fan through the retirement of Two GOATs and know it will be rough for a while. We just hired Mike Dubose version 2.0, so have fun while it lasts!

    His recruiting classes were bad. Most of his key players were leftovers from the Peterson era, very senior heavy group.

    Even in the portal he didn't get outside QB and RB.

    He's also one of those coaches who brings the same staff with him, "his guys." Doesn't like outsiders.

    He's always been a darling wherever he goes. He will be eaten alive in the SEC

    Yes. It took a while. It will take a while again. For those of us who have been fans for 40+ years, this part of the process is also fun.
