Here is my problem with Strong


Recommended Posts

He is more focused on insignificant thing that really has nothing to do with football. Reports of Johnny Ford not playing due to team rules, kicking off Soloman and other talented players and I remind you he ran off all kind of talent at Texas in the name of trying to be a dad to these players instead of a coach. Before anyone jumps down my throat let me clarify, I think players should be held accountable for their actions because in life we all are but he seems extreme with it to the point where players look like they are walking on egg shells around him. Don't hold the door open for a lady, or don't tuck your shirt in or using profanity etc shouldn't be that big of an issue where players are punished. Lord knows what Dabo or Saban or Urban put up with on a day to day basis. I am not saying let them run amuck  but jeez lay off them some they are teenage boys last thing they need is a **** grumpy ass daddy away from home to constantly monitor them and punish them for stupid stuff. Strong needs to do what he is hired to do and that is coach football.

As a team leader at work, I pick my battles. Strong seems to pick them all.There's a huge gulf between running a dirty program like Dabo/Saban/Urban probably do and running a program where you are removing legions of players for not toeing the line.

Strong just seem to have a hard on for minor stuff for example he seems like the type that will have a curfew at 10pm and if you come in at 10:05 you won't dress for the next game. I get that there are rules but sometimes you also have to use common sense, I get it that someone will say but if you let one person come in 5 mins late then the next person will come in 10 mins late yada yada yada. Look I want him to be a coach and not play disciplinarian for minor stuff that affects the team as a whole. I don't know what Ford did but is it any worse then what another football player would do at any other program in America and be allowed to trot out on the field and help their team win?

It's a pity he couldn't succeed with Flowers and get back to the P5.

We'd be rid of him and we'd have buyout money.

WIN-WIN!!

I guess that’s the best case scenario we can hope for again. Lose until things run their course and we start the cycle again or win and the person bolts for the first team to open their checkbook for them. I use to love the idea of program building and stability but apparently we have killed that dream. Just win and be gone and thanks for doing you two years here.

So no one knows why these people were let go but we're going to judge it negatively anyway?  Well, this IS a fan board.

Just like we don’t know why Ford didn’t play, but we have 117 posts with opinions about it.
