My feeling about it is in terms of two things – how big time it is and the probability he’s good.
So – 1) I really applaud Jimmy for trying to go big. This is for sure big. This is the kind of hire that you’d see at Bama. Would it shock you if Bama hired Moore? UGA? No. It would be a big hire for any of those schools and it shows a real want to play in the big leagues. I applaud that.
Given 1) – I think it will help us with the off-season natty (which I think we are going to lose to Oregon, but I could see this bumping us up a good bit) and will also be great for recruiting guys like Emeka and Troy Franklin. So those things are really good to me.
Now, what do I think the chances are it’s a good hire? God it scares me. I don’t want any more complicated bullshit. So for me, I think the probability it’s a good hire from a football standpoint is like 30%. Not zero. I think it has a chance, but I’m worried af.
Still, overall I’m here for us hiring the OC of the #1 offense in the NFL and making moves that Bama would make. And I’m just going to pray we somehow cut the dead weight on staff.
