        Saban knows defense and if he was high on him we should be over the moon that we got him.

          I hate to sound like a Debbie Downer here, and I know sometimes that’s how it comes off, but I like to be realistic and even-keeled.

          It is a bit over the top to say he has the Saban seal of approval because while Saban needed to hire a defensive coordinator this offseason, and he did, he didn’t hire Armstrong for that role, he hired him to coach a position.

          There’s a hell of a difference between Saban thinking Armstrong is ready to coach a unit, and thinking he is ready to run an SEC defense – which is what UF has hired him to do.

              You’re right. Add to this he just did this with his prior DC who didn’t get the job done and was pushed out. Saban isn’t right every time.

              Charlie Strong should have got a call.

                  Hire him for one year but college football got to stop recycling the same coaches over again.
