Current Miami Dolphin head coach Adam Gase was a GA in 2000 at LSU with Nick Saban. Saban brought him with him from MSU, where Gase was a student assistant.  Gase never played college ball, because he wasn't good enough.  Nick Saban took him under his wing and taught him how to coach.

Chad Walker was in the same boat at LSU in 2000.  A student assistant, that had never played college ball, working for Saban.  After graduation, and a couple of GA jobs, Saban brought him back to LSU and then took him to the Dolphins with him.

Hired 3 times by Nick Saban, that says a lot.  I'm sure not playing in college has limited Walker's opportunities, but he has his chance now.  Let's hope he is the next Adam Gase.

I think you have been afforded and have taken advantage of the opportunity to make your point...several times over. Let's wait and see how this Coach turns out. If our OLB's are a mess after he gets his hands on them, there will be plenty of time and more opportunity to be negative and complain. Until then, let's just wait and see.

so you guys are bending over backwards now to say it's basically "an advantage" that someone didn't play in college, and then you give false examples (coaches who DID play in college), or you compare our new outside linebackers coach to the head coach of the Miami Dolphins

LOL!  :D

I'm not going overboard with my points, I was answering specific things brought up by the others

And I never said our OLB's will be a mess.

Well either our OLBs will be a mess or the won't. Can't have it both ways-since you've more than once expressed your distain for not only his background, but also his lack of experience in coaching AND the fact that the hire was a mistake then that's certainly must be what you're implying. Why else would you continue to drone on and on about all the things you perceive as negative?

These seem like blue-collar hires...nothing sexy about them (resumes) but the recommendations suggest they are really good at their jobs (installation of the 3-4 seems to be a recurring theme)

I guess it's better "at the moment" to have say our  3 & 4 Star players know his assignments than to have 5 Star elite athlete's (looking at you Ole Miss) playing out of position and lost.

This year's Defense job is to build a attraction on national tv (ESPN or otherwise) and have commentator's gloating like a middle school girl over their performance...

That will attract the right attention in Texas & Louisiana

 This.... Hopefully for once we as a collective fan base won't hate ourselves out of dharma's good graces...

I'm aware that you didn't say that but you have made every effort to fill your quota of complaining about the hire. Good grief man, we all know that you are not fond of the hire. It's tiresome. Give the Coach a chance. If he fails, many of us will be right there with you but it does no good to continue to drone on with negativity when you have already stated your opinion repeatedly.

Who said it was an advantage ?  Might be just saying it doesn't keeping you from being a good coach.  Nobody compared Walker to Gase.  The only thing they have in common was neither played football yet both were still hired by Saban.  That's it, nothing more nothing less.  I have no idea whether Walker is any good or not, but neither do you.   You've said he won't have any respect in the locker room, yet you been given example after example of where coaches have succeeded without playing college.  Less than 20% of NFL coaches played in the league.  How do they get any respect?

Why would you go on a message board and say a guy sucked, when guys like Saban, Dan Quinn, Stoops, CBB  & Paul Rhoades say otherwise, unless you are a troll?

Haven't you learned by now that pillow brain has FAR more knowledge and expertise than Saban, Quinn, Stoops, CBB* and Rhoades put together ??? In fact just to let you in on a little known secret: Saban, Sweeney, Myers and all the other top shelf football coaches secretly call him every season and ask his opinion/advice on their game plans. Only problem is when teams like the Hogs and Tide play one another that particular week. Really presents a real conflict of interest; however, once pillow advises the particular coach of that fact they're still relieved enough to go ahead and accept his advice without hesitation. Must be so wonderful to be Mr. Wonderful. :puke: :puke: :puke: :puke: :puke: :puke: :puke:

* After due consideration following this initial post it was discovered that a portion of my comments concerning elite head coaches consulting pillow brain about their weekly game plans was in error. As pillow obviously doesn't consider CBB to be a top notch HC there presents no conflict of interest in weeks where the Hogs are playing such teams as Alabama. It's my understanding that despite many desperate pleas for help, Bret has been repeatedly denied access to pillow's "power brain" and unrivaled football knowledge. So much for Arkansas ever hoping to improve while such a tragic condition exists.

From his posts it sounds as though he's a little too young to remember "Holiday Inn" or Bing Crosby.

I'm guessing he's either broken his X-Box or his mom has kicked him out of the basement.





Was that too harsh cause I really don't want to be thought of as someone who is insensitive to the profoundly challenged.





well, maybe not anyway
