Welcome to the neighborhood

Hey, Auburn’s got to be excited about Bryan Harsin.  After all, having won 76% of his games, he’s the ninth-winningest active FBS coach (with more than one year experience).

There is a catch, though.

The issue with that stat is Harsin will now play three coaches annually with better career winning percentages (Texas A&M’s Jimbo Fisher at 76.8%, Georgia’s Kirby Smart at 78.8% and Saban at 80%).

I’m sure referring to ‘Bama as the “team up north” will soon fix that, though.

    Geographic references worked for Woody Hayes. For Dennis Franchione, not so much.

    Enjoy your time before the season starts coach. Good luck on beating the team up North more than three times like the one just fired.

    Never claimed to be a mathematical wizard…when playing against 100% of coaches who have a winning record of 76% (+/-) against #AUBURN SUCKS! and throw in a few 50% per season losses, my abacus says the new barner hc will wind up in 45.679 percentile for winning football games, i know it’s early for cesspool diagnostics….

    In a much weaker league where he was ‘king’. He is ‘at best’ in the middle now. This is a major step up in competition on every side. He still feels like a Vandy hire to me. We’ll see with time.

    Harsin’s winning percentage is about to become Judge Smail’s boat, while Georgia and Bama come roaring in like Al Czervick, yelling, “hey you scratched my anchor!”

    Don’t forget the Pitt Boss at Pig Alley
    Coach O at Hell SU
    Jr. at Ole Piss
    or
    The Pirate at the Maroonies.
    I’m looking at the East Alabama Reform School to be less than “middle of the SEC West pack.”
    Hopefully, EARS will have several years of continued malfunctions!!
