So wait, let me get this straight, the Football Program is at the highest ever, the golf teams are up there too, the gymnastics team is at it's highest, the softball team just won the first SEC national championship ever.
Yet if I am reading this correctly there appears to be some people who think we should have scored another TD on college athletics after already hanging 45 on the nation over the past five years.....Flame away if you want but Battle takes the helm for a few years. They make sure Bonner is the right person for her job and then find the long term plan for Battle.
To me, this is basically allowing the passenger sitting next to Mal this whole time to take the wheel while Mal is still in the car.
Not that bad to me.
Executive Committee of UA BOT will meet tomorrow at 10 a.m. CT to consider approval of Battle as AD. Formality.

Here are some reasons for Bill Battles to be appointed. Not hard to see, just follow the money.
They have plenty of people to turn wrenches.
He's on the board of the following:
Bank of North Georgia
Bryant-Jordan Student-Athlete Foundation
The University of Alabama A-Club Educational & Charitable Foundation
Crimson Tide Foundation
National Football Foundation
If that's the plan...I'm good with it.
I assumed it was to groom Lyons or find someone else nationally, but if it's CNS I'm on board.
Ok so alot of people (some of whom seem to be connected) are saying or at least implying CNS will be next. Obviously that would be great, but is this optimism in the same strain as the belief that Ozzie would come (unrealistic) or is it something that's actually been talked about in the AD and that Saban has said he truly wants to do?

All I know is I have a lot of UT relatives who hated BB because he was a "Bama guy". That's good enough for me. :-)
He also won a lot at UT but couldn't beat Bama, which led to his eventual firing.
Best post ITT.
