Ok guys. It sucks. I get it. I hate that we lost Pruitt. Will hate it even more if we lose Burton. But the fact of the matter is Saban is still here. And we have been through this before. He knows what he is doing. I swear I think Saban prefers to have staff changes like this every so often. Maybe that is the key to not getting stale. Look at places that the flame runs out, like Texas. It is the same old coaches. Same old thing all the time.
Maybe bringing in new blood re-energizes the players and the coaches. All is well and will be well no matter what assistant coach goes where. We may even lose another recruit. But these things work out folks because we have the master at the wheel!!! #DYNASTY

CFB is a head coaches game. auburn hasn't figured that out.
Thats why Gus is keeping the bus warm Petrino when his radioactivity wears down.
I'm not sure that anyone is concerned over losing those two. They are easy to replace.
It's how fans are. We freak out over everything. Coach will hire a coach and we won't miss a beat. It happens every year. EVERY year. I promise, Bama won't miss a beat. But I also promise that a ton of fans will have a major freakout and act like the sky is falling.
If Burton leaves would y'all want Sedrick Irvin as RB coach?
I like staffing turnover within reason...it prevents complacency. We lose great coaches EVERY year and every year our fans freak out about it and every year it is essentially irrelevant. I don't mean that as a slight towards our guys, but we have the right head coach.
How about lets make LSU really love us and go out and offer Frank Wilson 500k... haha
McElwain left and the offense wound up being more productive under Nussmeier...I have no issue with this.
On the field coaching actually shines through with Burns. That is what I notice the most about him.

You may be right I had not looked at it that way.
Spot on. Though some of those so called fans are rival trolls looking to stir stuff up when anything potentially negative about Alabama arises.
