I understand the show clause but is there any way a school could lock him in without getting the NCAA involved? Could he come in to a school with an opening, advise the school on who he would want for his staff, name an interim and sit in the wings ready to step in when the show clause expires? I honestly think there will be a bidding war the closer this gets to the end of his show clause. Someone is going to get an awesome coach that screwed up yes but over a minor secondary violation. Anyway, just curious.
I like football.
Follow me on twitter, @BSCTIDE. Let's tweet.
So do I but I think we can have a competitive basketball program too.
I don't know the answer to your question but even if we had to wait to get Pearl, I would be alright with it. I know he lied to the NCAA, but it wasn't like he lied about illegal benefits unless you consider a hotdog an illegal benefit.
My question is why is he THE name that keeps coming up? There are plenty of other good coaches out there that haven't been in trouble. He lied and will have a microscope on him for the rest of his career. Even if it is not him and he has no knowledge of wrongdoing, a program will get absolutely hammered if it is on his watch.
That being said, I am not supporting getting rid of Grant at this time.
Just tired of seeing Pearl on our board. Is he the only name people know because he was in the SEC or something?
This is not a flame to you, by any means. It just seems like there are multiple threads after every game win or lose. Only Jim Chizick has been mentioned more on our board to not be an Alabama coach.
To honestly answer your question I think it's for a number of reasons.
1) his style of play is exciting
2) he gets every ounce of effort out of his players
3) recruits love his system
4) he's won at several different levels
5) he's done it in the SEC
6) he can energize a passionless fanbase
That's just a few off the top of my head.
