I say he is the best coach in the SEC. When Fran first came to Alabama, all the tiders were talking about how he was going to restore the tradition of dominance at Alabama. I never bought into that. I figured, so he won at TCU, what does that mean in the SEC? Well, it apparently means a lot, because what other coach could take a team with nothing really to play for as far as postseason goes, and not even the most talented team in the SEC, and turn them into a top 10 team. As much as I hate to say it, when Bama goes off probation, I see some SEC and National titles in their future. Damn that hurts. But hey, I'm thinking it would be bad for LSU for Bama to do good, but why couldn't the west with Bama and LSU turn into the east with Florida and Tennessee in the 90's. A rivalry like that would bring a lot to both schools, so now I'm kinda looking forward to it.
