This is unacceptable!!!

Have you guys seen the latest projections from the ESPN experts on who will make the CFP this year? 29 of the 43 experts did not pick our Tide to win another title! 3 of them even picked them to miss the playoffs! Don’t believe me, see for yourself We can’t have that kind of mediocrity. It’s time we take a stand and get rid of the man at the head of this sinking ship. Fire Nick Saban right now!

What the Tide has become under Saban…

As I tend to do on a somewhat regular basis I logged on to the internet this morning to see what was new with our beloved Tide. I typed “Tide” into the search engine as usual and what do I see? The first several stories that pop up on the results page are about how people are eating laundry detergent.

I want to see this                                                not this

 

Nick Saban has brought our program so far out of the national limelight that when you google the nickname of our beloved school you see stories about kids eating laundry detergent instead of meaningful information about the Alabama Crimson Tide. I’ll tell you one thing, this definitely never happened under Bear Bryant!

Why did it take so long?

There is absolutely no reason that we should have let the puppy Dawgs hang with us and force overtime last night. Why in the world did it take the “great” Nick Saban 13.5 games to realize the absolute gem he had at his disposal in Tua Tagovailoa? If Nick had done his job and played the better player all year we would have been undefeated, won the SEC, and steamrolled through the CFP.

This guy is getting more senile by the day and needs to go now. Bama should be challenging NFL teams with the talent they have, not barely squeaking by teams that got drubbed by Auburn.

Fire Nick Saban

Never Forget.

This is why we need to get rid of this clown and get somebody who can make smart football decisions to help restore the Tide to their proper place atop the food chain of college football.

Saban just did what…

Nick Saban just lost to the team that lost to the team that lost to Troy.

You know who didn’t lose to the team that lost to the team that lost to Troy??? Dabo Swinny and the Clemson Tigers, now there is a coach that is deserving of coaching our Tide.

Fire Saban now! He can’t even hang with the likes of Troy.

More than 25% of writers think Saban should be fired!

In the latest Associated Press top 25 Rankings more than 75% of the writers included in the polling have let the world know that they don’t think Nick Saban is the best coach in college football.  We deserve the best coach in college football.  We clearly have the best players, but for some reason there are still 18 of the 61 writers who don’t think we have the best team.  The only thing that can mean is they don’t think we have the best coach or coaching staff, and the man responsible for that is Ole Saint Nick.  It’s time we turn this program around and start winning everything again and do do that Nick must go.  #firenicksaban.

Saban denies players essential experiences!

The young men that suit up every Saturday and put their heart and soul into representing the Crimson Tide are just not being put to the test and the fault lies entirely with Nick Saban! One of the highest compliments an athlete, and really any individual, can receive is that they perform at their best when they are under pressure. How can we expect our players to perform under pressure if we never actually put them under any real pressure? I mean we have had ONE regular season game decided by single digits in the last 13 months. That is just unacceptable. We need to get Saban outta here and find someone who is going to allow our players to experience what it’s like to be under some real pressure so that when they move on to the next level they are less likely to crack under pressure.

Fire Nick Saban!

Preparing Our Players for What?

If Nick Saban is really the great coach and recruiter that so many people claim that he is then I have one simple question: How many quarterbacks have come out of Alabama during Saban’s tenure have won at least a single measly game in their entire NFL careers?

The answer: Zero. Zip. Ziltch. Nada. Not a single one!!!

The last Crimson Tide QB to get an NFL win…Jeff Rutledge…drafted in 1979.  That is unacceptable.

How are we keeping this guy around who can’t even get a single win out of the quarterback position at the next level. It won’t be long before players start to realize that he does not prepare them well for the NFL and our recruiting takes a hit.

Good Coaches Avoid Penalties, and Nick is Not a Good Coach!

I always say you can tell a good coach by looking at the amount of yellow laundry that his team leaves on the field.  When we evaluate the 2013 Crimson Tide and Coach Saban by this metric things don’t look very good.  Here are just a few of the teams that were less penalized than Bama this year: Indiana, Purdue, San Jose St., Middle Tennessee, Louisiana Tech, Wisconsin, Michigan, UTEP, Ball State, Tulsa…really, Tulsa had fewer penalties than Alabama!  If we keep it in the SEC it doesn’t get any prettier, even an Arkansas team that finished 0-8 in SEC play had fewer penalties than Saint Nick.

One may argue, just counting the number of penalties isn’t the right metric.  Let’s look instead at yards per penalty to get a sense for the severity of the penalties called on each team.  By this metric there are 8 other SEC teams that fare better than the Tide.  However you want to slice it the results of this analysis lead to one conclusion, Nick Saban coached teams show a lack of discipline that leads directly back to the head coach.

Roll Tide!  But let’s Roll with a coach that can instill some discipline in our squad!

 

Would you trade a championship for eternal damnation?

As a parent I know that I want my daughter to grow up to lead a virtuous and moral life.  Unfortunately, those values don’t carry quite as much weight with the Head Football Coach at the University of Alabama.  As this recent article published by GQ magazine clearly demonstrates Nick Saban has  a reputation for being the devil.
