Leave my Rocker alone.

Before I get all worked up about any Tracy-Rocker-to-Alabama rumors, someone is first going to have to come up with a credible explanation as to why a man who said this a few months ago…

“When you play a game like this and you have — I’ll call it — a bit of a mutiny; well, it IS mutiny — it’s important that you bring the kids together, and I thought it was important we did that,” Rocker said in a concourse beneath EverBank Field. “Those kids, we kept them together, and that’s what B-Mac (Bryan McClendon) did a great job with. Everybody focused and everybody stayed the course.”

… is ready to go coach for Jeremy Pruitt.

  1. I’m not tied in enough to the rumor mill to know where this is coming from. But it seems like agent smoke to get Mr Rocker some more dough.

    PAY THAT MAN HIS MONEY

    It is high time that some write a book about the 2015 season! I am skipping to the Florida chapter first to learn just what in the hell Richt and Schotty were thinking.

    • The 2015 season’s been over for, what, four months and it’s already high time? Think you need to change your moniker to Impatient Dawg.😉

        On the story if the 2015 season? Yes sir. There were so many storylines last season that are so intriguing. The alleged fight between Pruitt and Richt/Brown. The Sunday morning Pruitt showed up at Richt’s house. The QB situation in the Florida game. The Schotty hire. The list goes on and on. This book may rival War and Peace in length!

    Pruitt showed up at Richt’s house on Sunday morning? I’ve never been convinced there was a fight between Pruitt and Brown. There might have been but that sounds made up.

    And I believe Rocker wants to keep his son his high school until he graduates. Not that he can’t do both for the right $$$.

    I’m trying to forget the 2015 season, but it would be an interesting read. Probably “same as it ever was”, a lot of small issues which by themselves would not be a big deal if mishandled, but when added together led to a crap season.

    I don’t buy the money thing, $.8-$1.2 mil is a range I know nothing about, but I do know that people who are in the top 1% of their field tend to transcend money, they work because they like to and are good at it.
    It would be a dumb move regardless. Anyone on staff right now that would change jobs would be dangerously close to committing career suicide. Possible short term gain but down the road a bit, would look bad on the resume.

  7. Something very odd went down for sure, but as time goes on my interest in what really happened wanes. Somebody had better write a book while people still give a crap.

    Who is supporting these rumors, other than people who get clicks saying there are rumors?

    Show him the money. McFugal better not lose him over money. He doesn’t have Richt to blame shit on any more.

    Money makes for some strange allies is about the only explanation for Pruitt + Rocker 2.0

    Why overlook Pruitt factor?

    Because…Bama. Bama is not Georgia, and Georgia is not Bama. The list of potential reasons all flow from this point.

    “it’s hard to see Rocker packing up the family to Tuscaloosa right now. It wouldn’t be a surprise by any means”

    Somebody get these guys an editor. Regardless of the validity of the rumors it’s contradictory hedge statements like this that make FSF really hard to read. “It’s hard to see him leaving, but it wouldn’t be surprising if he left.” Which is it? Not to mention the sentence structure is reminiscent of a high schooler, and don’t even get me started on how off they usually are with their predictions.

    Unfortunatly, they often offer some actual nuggets of insight which is why I’m constantly wading through the crap articles with their click bait titles. Sorry for the soapbox, I would have posted this on the article page, but they don’t have a comment section – which is probably smart.
