Brown spent the past two seasons back at Colorado as defensive coordinator. Under head coach Jon Embree, the Buffaloes went 1-11 and lost their last eight games of 2012. The defense ranked worse than 100th in rushing and total defense, and was last in pass-efficiency and scoring defense
Sometimes it's the Jimmy and Joes and not the X's and O's.
Its Colorado, what do you expect?
Somebody better call Saban and tell him (g)
Sal proved good position coaches don't always make good dcs
I bet Saban wants him for more than DB coach. This guy has miles of both NFL & college experience. Watch and see, Brown will have another title(s) also. JMO guys.
Now about Browns performance at Colorado, just look at the talent in that place. 'nough said.
Trust in Saban. How can anyone question his hires or recruits he signs?
Huge talent level difference between Bama and Colorado.
The price of victory is high, but so are the rewards.
I'm definitely missing something here.
he has two thorpe winners under his belt too
Saban might know what he is doing. I think I have diagnosed you with Shulanitis. Watch 2009, 2011, and 2012 NC games. You should repeat every 4 hours, as needed. Call me in the morning.
Anyone who questions a Nick Saban hire at this point is definitely missing something or just plain stupid.
I tend to agree with the 'Don't question Saban' approach. But to play devil's advocate for the OP, Saban did highly recommend Houston Nutt to LSU when he left. We see how he turned out.
I still wouldn't question Saban, but he is human and able to make mistakes.
Nutt was never hired at LSU.
From Fort Collins, CO Coach Jim Mac calls CNS and says you gotta get this good DB coach who recruits so well out of Boulder,CO for me. It would be a personal favor, plus, everyone wins here. He's killing my recruiting and he's relentless in doing so. Saban says, "I got you Mac. I'll see you Sept 21".
“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.”
^^^ This right here.
Did I say he was? I think I just said he was recommended by Saban and that we all see how he turned out as a coach.
You compared an apple to an orange and tried to say Saban made a bad choice.
OP is ignorant
This just prooves that Saban is over rated! Save me a spot on the Gus bus! VBG! ;)
Recruits so well that he can't keep talent in state. Anyways Coach Mac beat them in his first year. The problem is that no Colorado school is going to recruit well enough to keep up with big programs, nor are the schools going to give the athletic department the money to do so. RTR.
I just hope you didn't miss the emphasis based on humor in that post. Hope Hope..RTR
