    100 x 0 = 0, so yeah, he might be right.

    I love how most of this board was just salivating for any possible reason to jump on the fire Pruitt bandwagon. It's like y'all love to be the first ones to say this coach sucks. Fact is Pruitt is 100% getting a 3rd year and most likely gets a 4th.

    We have a staff full of some really great coaches with decades of experience and you guys act like you know more than the guys who see the team everyday.

    Last year we lacked depth and majorly were lacking in player S&C because the previous staff didn't care. The main problem is the QB and it's obvious. Do you really think Chaney would start JG over either of the other 2 if he didn't think he was better.

    There are some very football knowledgable people on this board, but you guys need to see this team for what it is. Young and still lacking depth and SEC caliber players.

    Has he made mistakes? Sure. Every coach makes them though. This team hopefully continues to improve like they have the past 3 weeks.

    Calm down

    Exactly. Give the guy a chance to turn around the dumpster fire he inherited. Not directed towards you IP.

    The lack of depth really hurt when playing a bottom feeder Sun Belt team. Needed more blue chips to compete with them.

    Just because you say it's fact doesn't actually make it a fact.

    Saban's lost to ULM with better players than we have. Just saying.

    What players on this team would start for other SEC teams?

    I'd guess most are under classmen.

    Great. Saban was a national champion head coach and still is. That was also his first year with Alabama. Pruitt was allowed some leeway his first year. Not so much now.

    TBF he's had to compete with a strength of schedule ranked 77 out of 130. Can't expect too much.

    Good for him if he can't navigate out of this horrendous start. The 16 games we've seen with him at the helm inspire no confidence it will happen.

    Players have only had two years in a real S&C program.

    I see no connection between whether he "sucks" or not and him being here at least 2 more years. it doesn't mean he does or does not suck.

    Wait just a damn minute. I wanted to give him a chance. All he had to do was keep his mouth shut. Saying that we are 100x better than last year and looking like he's sticking with JG as QB is him just trolling the fanbase or maybe he's just one of these guys that buries his head in the sand because he can't be wrong. I don't care. I wanted him to succeed. I didn't even wig out on him after Ga State OR BYU. But to ignore the glaring QB issue then make THAT statement............it's just too much.

    And just because I think he's an idiot has no bearing on whether or not he'll be here for one or two more years. But the fans are going to go nuclear on him if UGA wipes their ass with us at Neyland after this comment and if he sticks with JG.

    King of hard to look worse than we did game 1.

    They still looked awful game 4. Yeah, "better", but what kind of barometer is that.
