Of course my biggest fanboy wants to engage with me about this subject.
Soryy your idol Dooley was a clown and a loser.
Any smart person saw that early. You hing on as one of his diehard supporters and hated Jones because of it. Dooley was as crappy at coaching as you are at qb evaluations.
Jones was a worse coach of the game than Dooley. Jones caught a break with some legacy players. Dooley was a poor recruiter. But just a glance at the OL left by Dooley compared to any that Jones produced... tells you all you need to know about their ability to develop players and teach the game.
That's not to say Dooley was "good"... only how bad your hero Jones was.
Dooley should have made him the starter. he wanted to act like Saban when he was a career loser. Brown smartly got away.
Brown had over 500 yards with Marlin Lane ahead of him and a hip injury. He was good here and would have easliy had a 1000 yard season the next year. He made the NFL and had a 200 yard rushing performance.
He was good. Your idol Dooley just sucked.
