Should we bring Sherman back?

If we look at our most successful season under Sumlin (2012), every key member of our team was recruited by Mike Sherman and his staff. Without Johnny, Jake, Luke, Swope, Evans, etc. we don't have near the first season we had in the SEC.

Sherman's Pro system seems to work better for the SEC and as we've seen, Sumlin's "system" has been regressing every year sans Johnny in the SEC.

Sherman is currently unemployed and could be brought in for a fraction of Sumlin's current contract.

Sherman would recruit character guys that are focused on winning instead of looking cool and acting silly with "pimp canes" and dunking footballs into trashcans.

As long as it isn't Sumlin.
Hire Hugh Freeze if you want, I don't care.

Talk to Mattress Mack to see if we can throw in a Certa into the sign on bonus.

No. Sherman choked more big leads than Sumlin. We can do better.

So we can go from crapping the bed in the second half of the season to crapping it in the second half of every game? No thanks.

Remember when we used to think blowing a 10 point lead was bad under Sherman. Those were the days

Has anybody ever hired back a coach to replace that coach's replacement?

That ship has sailed, he's been out of big time coaching for a while and being around retirement age he might just want to relax.

Having said that, one of my big what ifs is how good of a coach he could have been if he recognized he wasn't a strong play caller and hired a strong OC to take over that part of the coaching duties. He was a really strong coach in every other area.

I'd take him back. Having watched this program from 98 to his hire, that guy made progress reviving a titanic half way down the ocean. He needed some resources/coaches to close deficiencies but that guy made progress. Can't say I see progress since 2012.

By the way... I was very opposed to his hiring and he completely changed my opinion.

Sherman is too much in demand right now and is probably working a high profile job so it would be damn well too impossible to buy him back.

And the OP will be laughing at all of it.

But the armchairs can't wait to show off how much they know even on an obvious troll. The Zoo really is a shadow of its former glory.

To be fair though, it took Sherm 2 full halves of football to blow 35 points worth of lead.

It took Sumlin 20 minutes of football to blow 34.

Sherman ain't the guy we want, but he'd be an upgrade over what we have now.

Don't know if we go 11-2 with a heisman winner with Sherman.

Give Sherman a blank check to hire coordinators and I think he could have done well here. He brought a lot to the table.

I think we have proven that we are already more than capable of collapsing in the 4th quarter without Mike Sherman's help!

He would be an upgrade over what we have now, but why would he want to sign up to coach a bunch of soft players for a school that kicked him to the curb once before?

It's amazing how short people's memories are when they say Sherman is better than what we have now. Hell, Sherman had an even worse record than Fran.
