I know yall remember the great years we have had since CTT has taken over our program. And as bad as my stomach churned last night I know he should at the minimum be given another year. Remember this game/year ?
SEPT. 18, 2004
It's late, awfully late. Fourth-and-12, Auburn down 9-3 to LSU. The third game of Campbell's final season is about to end with a loss at Jordan-Hare Stadium, in front of the largest crowd ever to see a football game in the state of Alabama. Coordinator Al Borges can barely stand to watch from the sideline. He took over the position in the off-season, replacing Hugh Nall, who replaced Bobby Petrino in 2003, who replaced Noel Mazzone in 2002. Is it any wonder Campbell has been struggling all day? As much as Borges tells him to let it rip in the new West Coast, the QB still sometimes plays as if he were afraid to mess up.
As the stadium waits, quiet as a spool of string, Campbell takes the ball from under center. The Tigers blitz. Before he's hit by two defenders, Campbell finds receiver Courtney Taylor with a 14-yard pass to get the game-saving first down. Three plays later, he hits Taylor again for a 16-yard touchdown. The Tigers win 10-9 and don't lose a game all season.
Do you think a bad football coach can go undefeated in the SEC ? LSU lost two games last year and won the national title, Florida was beat the year before by guess who ? Yeah our Tigers, who CTT has won his last two games aganst including a win in the Swamp Urban's first loss at home as the Gators coach. CTT has a winning record vs FL,TENN,GEOR,ala SIX WINS IN ROW AGANST BAMA! When you log onto this site Jay's title includes beating bama yearly since 2002. You want to risk this becouse we are having one terrible year. Emotion will make you think irrationally. Do we want to risk our program to a new Coach ? It was not even a year go when we beat Clemson in the Peach bowl and we all were on cloud nine with expectations of a HUGE year.
My vote is to keep CTT around and let him overhaul our offensive staff.
