And then there were four

Welcome to the It Just Means More Conference, boys.

When the Southeastern Conference took its football media days event to Atlanta for the first time in 2018, Alabama coach Nick Saban had guided the Crimson Tide to five national championships, Georgia’s Kirby Smart was coming off the 2017 league title, Kentucky’s Mark Stoops was continuing to build a respected program, and Texas A&M’s Jimbo Fisher was entering his rookie season with the Aggies.

Those are the only four coaches still at their respective locales as the SEC returns to Atlanta this week for a second occasion, with the likes of Auburn’s Gus Malzahn, Florida’s Dan Mullen and LSU’s Ed Orgeron having been unable to maintain their jobs since the last go-around.

That’s some impressive turnover.  Maybe if all those fired coaches had valued education more, they’d have stuck around longer.

    Gus had just beaten Saban, and won again two years later.
    I guess he didn’t call for enough study halls.

  2. Coach O was just a victim of the times. He once gave a master class in elocution that would curl the toes of the Bard. His rendition of Sally Selling Seashells was beyond the pail.

        That mural of the Gus Bus at his residence (crootin’ purposes or not) was a little on the worshiping side, corch wannabe (#FTMF) and his side show B.S. was cringe worthy (more times than not) and coach O was just believing in his own way of communicating to the rest of us (what ever the fuck he was saying?)…

      • Uncle Got, How did the smoked shoulder turn out? RR mentioned it was your Saturday delight. It inspired my lazy keester to toss a Boston butt in a crockpot for dinner tonight at the Frozen estate. I’m not firing up my smoker today.

          Really good. Part of it is the pork is locally sourced. I lease part of the farm to a neighbor who cuts it for hay. (‘Bout 20 acres of really nice Bermuda) He raises some fine pigs and part of his lease payment is I get a 3-400lb pig every year delivered to the abattoir, all I pay for is processing.
          This 5lb butt I brined like a Christmas ham and smoked it. Slice it up and have at it.

          • Hell of a deal…not to get too deep in the Got family recipes, did you brine it over night?

              24 hours/lb. This is a “Ham” ham, not like pulled pork. It’s a curing brine. What with all the fresh tomatoes and Dukes abounding this time of year a fresh cured HLT is hard to beat.

    They should start each annual media meeting by tallying up the year’s buyout money. The ‘Jimmy Sexton award’ could go to the school paying out the most.
