Ask me anything.
I reserve the right to not answer stupid questions, trolls or anything else I choose. But you can ask me!

When did you know Saban was our man?
Did you ever think he would have this much success?
Are we getting a new basketball arena?

I thought RichRod was going to be the coach until he turned it down. Then I wasn’t sure about the ‘wait it out on Saban until the NFL season is over’ strategy because it could easily have backfired.
So I’ll say that while I knew he was in the mix, I didn’t believe Alabama had Saban until it broke. Although I was feeling it was more likely the more he tried to not deny it to the Miami press (even though he finally did deny it).
I honestly believed he’d win A national championship. Nobody in the world thought he’d be as dominant as he has been. But I knew he would win. I wasn’t sure he’d stay much past five years, based on his track record, but I figured he’d win a ring and if he left, he’d leave the program in better shape than he found it.
There are no plans for a new basketball arena.
Easy to spend other peoples’ money. Alabama spent like $40M on a new baseball stadium that “everyone” wanted … and got like $15M in contributions to actually pay for it. There’s a lesson there.
Tearing down Coleman and building a new arena would cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $100M.
If I were AD, every time someone asked me about that or said that UA needs a new arena, my question would be, “How much can I put you down for?”

What is your take on the Auburn softball situation? Any idea as to the new coach? Will their program competiveness be impacted? Thanks.

Not sure where they will go for a new coach. Yes, their competitiveness will likely be impacted, regardless.
It’s an odd time to be hiring a coach, I’m sure a lot of coaches would be reluctant to leave where they’re at in September, with fall practices coming up and such. I’m interested to see what they do.
