He said that when Dyer was dismissed and left, he actually planted a right hook on Chizik because he felt "picked on." He also said that Trooper Taylor is eroding the program from the inside out, and compared Chizik/Trooper with Dubose/Cotrell.
Had no idea about the right hook, but I can't disagree about the comparison. I'm still not convinced to this day how much Coach Dubose actually knew about what was happening in Memphis and such.
Barner must have been reading BOL.
I am still not convinced how much Dubose knew about anything. Thats what gets me about the Shula critics. They give Dubose, Fran, Price a free ride. Dubose has 2 losing seasons at Alabama, a 7-5 and a 10-3 and gets run out of town for an affair and people want to knock Shula.
Agree. And wow, at that time in Bama football history, no one wanted to come coach at Bama.
I heard it was more of a jab. VBG but funny nonetheless
Yea. We should have kept Shula. We'd be so much better off right now.
If that's your opinion OK, but no one in their right mind would agree with you.
Wait a minute. Are you saying the Alabama football program would be much better off if Shula had been retained?
You lost again Gina? You don't like Coach Saban? You can like who you want but I think I'll have to go with Coach Saban.
A big dose if sarcasm was missed in one of the above posts.

Pretty sure my sarcsam alert siren is wailing...
I don't think it was missed, I think it was so stupid to post something like that it got the response it deserved.
No, I think you're lost again, Cosmo. Please get a sarcasm detector. TIA!
Could of sworn they were family down there. I bet he punched Chizik because Gene messed up part of their Creed in a recital session. Only possible explanation...

I agree, you and a couple more should use your sarcasm detector a little better.
Actually, to suggest that a Bama fan should bag LESS on Shula is the absurd statement in this thread. Besides, who the hell is giving Dubose, Fran, or Price a pass on anything? Hell, I wouldn't give them a bus pass .. in Montgomery. All of them sucked -- especially Shula.

Damn there's a lot of smartasses here. One of the reasons I dig this place.
You couldn't be more wrong. Everyone agrees that Shula was in over his head and that's not debatable. But he was the right hire for Bama at the time. The program was in turmoil and they called one of their sons home to help restore the order and more importantly, the integrity to Alabama football. He did an admirable job in an almost impossible situation. I'm thankful for what he did for this program and embarrassed by the way our fans turned on one of our own. I think you need some perspective and a dose of humility to boot. He walked into a burning building when everyone else was running out.
But are they really being a smart ass if their point is stupid? I mean, the guy totally missed the sarcasm and is now trying to play if off like the rest of us are the dumb ones.
Poor Gina, so lost she thinks shes the only one that knows or can use sarcasm. I bet you could ask 98% of the board and they knew what I was doing. Sorry, I'll give you warning next time and spell it out for you.
Okay. Thanks. That's very nice of you. I'm always so lost... I need direction.
Too many people on the rag tonight.
Agreed. And it ain't even the girl.
The only thing funnier than a smart, dumbass is a dumb, smartass.
