    Peyton Manning needs to be AD/Coach

    I would enthusiasticaly vote for Peyton if he ran for just about anything including president of the USA. However, I am still having hard time forgiving him for supporting Butch. I was also against Schiano but no longer know what to think about that after what happened with Pruitt. Maybe we were...

    How about Chip Kelly? I see him sort of similar to Malzahn - offensive guru who seems to have lost his touch. Still, we could do much worse than those 2. I'm surprised nobody has brought Kelly up - he was a huge coaching star not that long ago.

    A little bit from a Bama message board

    Grammar is extremely important in football (must be the reason why Vandy is always dominating the rest of the SEC). :mad:

    Pruitt replacement speculation article

    Pruitt was schooled by Saban even longer than that (and also Sunseri and Dooley). Our problem is that anyone we hire continues to get schooled by every other opposing coach the entire time they are here.

    Pruitt replacement speculation article

    Fake speculation article with no Gruden on the list. :rolleyes:

    Need a HC that will develop quarterbacks

    We had few of those during these down years. Kiffin and Dooley (and Chaney with both of them). Had some record breaking offensive units as well (Dooley's final year) and still could not win any meaningful games. This program seems cursed. Hopefully it wont take as long as it took the Red Socks...

    No reason to hire - they know VN will happily run it for free.

    Also Cordarrelle Patterson, Alvin Kamara, and offense during Dooley's final year.

    Official AD Search Thread

    Peyton is highly accomplished VFL with great IQ (was his strength as a player - probably best ever in that deparment). He is a student of the game with unreal knowledge and experience - having him as AD would help recruiting as well just for those reasons. Having said that, if it's true he had...

    Peyton would be by far the best choice but he probably won't take the job even if offered.

    There was an exchange between Rob Lewis and Coach Pruitt after the Bama game that is interesting...

    I agree with all this. Pruitt definitely has to prove himself as HC. However I like his chances to succeed because he has extremely experienced HOF UT legendary coach as his AD, and also he can rely on Chaney who himself has a ton of experience (and Tee has a lot to offer there as well) to cover...

    There was an exchange between Rob Lewis and Coach Pruitt after the Bama game that is interesting...

    I never said we won because of JG - actually I said we did not lose because of him (I said his mistakes were fixable enough so that we did not lose). That was good enough for me since we did not have any better options last year, and if the coaches feel this is still the case then I believe them...

    New QB being Installed During Offweek

    I agree - Arkansas is a must win or the wheels could completely come off if we lose that (but I still think Pruitt and Chaney will go with JG at least to start the game).

    New QB being Installed During Offweek

    I don't think Pruitt is even close to being fired (buyout or not) because of recruiting which has been going well and is key to rebuilding any program (Fulmer knows that better than anyone). However Pruitt does need to win at least 3 of the remaining games this year or otherwise the noise level...

    New QB being Installed During Offweek

    Even if that was true but if our coaches still think he is better than the other QB's we have right now (not in terms of potential but in terms of actually giving them best chance to win some more games this year) we have to assume there is a reason for this, correct? Can we at least agree they...

    There was an exchange between Rob Lewis and Coach Pruitt after the Bama game that is interesting...

    That same problem with JG appeared unfixable last year as well when we started 1-4 (and even at times later in the year as JG kept getting pulled out and thrown back in). But it's definitely unfair to say he did not contribute to that winning streak we had going until 3 weeks ago (so the truth...

    There was an exchange between Rob Lewis and Coach Pruitt after the Bama game that is interesting...

    I think Pruitt's answer makes a lot of sense once we have the type of talent they have at Bama (what Pruitt is used too working with before he took our job). So in the Bama case if you have 5 star players backing up starters you don't lose that much if your second or third strings are playing...

    I respect Pruitt's response...

    Any kind of W will be great right now. This team desperately needs it to regain momentum for the rest of the season.

    Chavis is available!

    I have huge respect for Chief but Pruitt needs to find someone who is going to be on the same page with him and it's unlikely coach with as much experience as Chief will be able to make that adjustment to someone else's style. Best would be if Pruitt can find a copy of himself from about 10...

    New QB being Installed During Offweek

    I don't think it's quite that bad. Just few weeks ago we were competitve at halftime with the top 3 team in the country. Sure, mistakes happened in the second half but that does not mean we are completely hopeless and need to throw everyone out and start over (even with JG we can be fine as long...
