Re: “Partial Sight

GA, you're right, we'll just have to agree to disagree. I understand what you are trying to say but I think Saban (and other coaches for that matter) get a bum rap about these types of situations. The guy left a job for what he perceived as a better job. He continued to recruit while he considered the move. What was he supposed to do? If you decide to test the job market, do you just quit your current job while you look around? I just don't understand how that makes him a failed coach. If anything, he was giving LSU his full effort until the end. Isn't that what you are supposed to do as an employee? Don't take this the wrong way, but I think you are rationalizing your choice of words as it applies to Saban. All the other coaches in that group either were fired, flamed out, or otherwise couldn't get it done in some way or another on the field. Saban just doesn't fit and rationalizing his inclusion in that "failed" group by implying dishonesty or lack of integrity for (basically) job hunting is a weak assertion in my opinion.

Re: “Partial Sight

Poor judgement and failed NFL coach, maybe, but leaving for another job at the pro level hardly equates to failure in this league. Poor choice of words on your part. You may not like the way he handled himself in that situation, but the guy has a national title, 2 SEC titles, and 4 division titles in 8 seasons in the SEC and has his current team ranked 2nd in the BCS and in the hunt for another SEC title and another national title. If that qualifies as a failure in this league then I want to see what your criteria are for being considered successful.

Re: “Partial Sight

Since when did Nick Saban qualify as a failed SEC coach? Have you seen the BCS rankings lately?
