Just an internet rumor from our rivals.  Nothing more...

Nothing to see here...

So what are y'alls opinion of DeBoer? I know he hasn't coached his first game for Bama, but what is your gut reaction about him?

I was skeptical at first because I didn't know much about him.  I do remember being impressed with his team when they beat Oregon for the second time this year when all of the talking heads had already buried them.

Hard to argue with 7-0 against Sark, Riley, and Lanning.  It looks like he is bringing the OC that CNS wanted last year.  I think we will be fine on that side of the ball.

The key is going to be the DC, and then we have to see how he does at recruiting.

Everybody on the internet was clamoring for T-Rob as DC, but I just kept thinking that if CNS thought T-Rob was ready to be the DC he would have promoted him instead of interviewing replacement coaches right up until he retired.

T-Rob was at SC before coming to Bama and the talk was that he spent more time playing golf than running practices. Now I doubt seriously that he did that under Saban, but it possibly tells us something about him. Knowing that, I think we can do better.

I was like you, SC, I was very skeptical as well for the same reason. But when I heard his press conference, along with all the praise from the talking heads, I've changed my mind. I think he is a good hire.

We do indeed need to bring on a good DC pretty quickly. I know we have players waiting to make a decision on whether to stay or go, based on who he brings on.

The DC is going to be the South Alabama coach, Kane Wommack.  I don't know much about him either, but what I have seen so far is encouraging.  He was a semi-finalist for the Broyles award when he was the DC at Indiana when CKD was there as OC.  The talking heads are saying it was a good hire.

So... the next hurdle is can they keep the players that are currently on the roster, particularly Caleb Downs.  If Downs decides to stay, I will feel better about everything.  If he chooses to go, I can't blame him, but I am going to be a little uneasy until I see how these guys can recruit.

Right now I am cautiously optimistic that this situation can work out and we keep rolling.  But we will need at least a full 1 year cycle to know for sure.  CDB can win next year with the roster he inherited.  It will be critical to see what his recruiting class looks like next year.

If we end up winning that UGA game on 9/28 a lot of folks are going to be on suicide watch.

Yeah, I just read about the likelihood of Wommack coming on board as the DC. If Downs stays, I think most others will stay. Popcorn at the ready.

I think he's a great coach, but the key to a highly successful first few years, is bring in some staff that has good experience recruiting the SEC.

I like DeBoer and I also think our defense is going to be tough with our incoming DC from South Alabama.

I like the Deboer hire. All I knew about him was he took Washington to the championship game this year. Since he accepted the Bama job, I have read up on him and he has an impressive resume. He is a winner. He has won everywhere he has been at every level.

I also like the staff he is putting together.

If I have a concern it is recruiting. He has never had to recruit at the level required to complete for championships in the SEC. That does not mean he can't do it.

Once Harbaugh goes to the NFL, maybe Kelly will go to Michigan.  Then we can turn the tables and start raiding Michigan and LSU to replace some of these guys.

No school can really stack talent very deep these days.  If you are a top player and one of these guys transfers in to your school, you have to think about entering the portal yourself.  Hopefully the pendulum will swing back our way soon.
