Is that there was no %^# around. I didn't even have enough time to finish my Top 5 Potential Candidates to Replace Al Borges article. And no Nussmeier wasn't on the list-- I was pulling for Bostad

Lots questions running through my mind
1) Was a qb coach being suggested to AL and he balked?
2) Was gardner expressing concern that he didnt have qb  coach?
3) Were there concerns about the qb recruits?
4) Was Alabama about to make some moves that not include nuss?
5) Did Nuss know he wouldn't get washington job?
6) Did the threat of the unknown of a new college president make Brandon realize just how important next season would be?

Now I hate to be the one Downer in this whole parade because I personally think it was a good hire. BUT coming from someone who is a Bama fan along with being a michigan fan. If you go look at Alabama forums no one is crying over him leavings word was that Saban was very disappointed in some of the play calling he had shown towards the end of the season and that was one of the reason that Lane Kiffin was getting dangled around Tuscaloosa as a "adviser"
 
Now I believe he is a great hire much better than Borges and we will win big 10 championships with him because he is good and the man knows how to use a running back and develop QB talent like no other. But Him leaving Bama might be less about the money and more about Saban squeezing him out to make room for his good friend Lane Kiffin.

Lane Kiffin is a cancer.  He has destroyed everything he's touched and you'll never convince me Saban is looking at him.  If anything, Saban is going to adjust to a new offense after seeing what he saw with Auburn and Nussmeier doesn't fit.  And neither does Kiffin.  There has been a lot of talk since Monday night that Saban is distressed in what he sees and feels he has to get on-board with the "new" offenses.

I am pretty sure Nussmeier has head coaching aspirations and I think stepping out of the shadow of Saban may help those aspirations. It gives Nuss the chance to prove that he isn't just because he rode Saban's coat tails....also there is the $$$$

I do agree partially but Saban Didn't fly in Kiffin to come lecture his entire offensive staff/players during bowl prep because he thinks that Kiffin is horrible. Him and Kiffin go back a long way and from the reports ive read considers Kiffin one of the best Offensive minds in the game.

I got 50 bucks that says we win 9/10 games next year. After this debacle of a season we just endured, I will gladly take it.

Kiffin has "met" and "talked" with a lot of teams. This happens all of the time.  There's 2 guys just talking football and then there's more to it.  Could this have played into Nussmeier leaving?  Sure.  But again, I'll believe it when I see it.  Kiffin brings the exact same thing to the table as Nussmeier, only with less success doing it.

TK - I think you are right on the money. Sabin saw what Auburn did and wants to head in that direction and so Nussmier would not be his guy.

Regardless, it is a GREAT hire for Michigan. These are TWO grand slams in one day for Brady and Brandon!

Go Blue!!
Don't argue with me. I am the windshield and you are the bug.

In 2011, even though UW had to replace a first-round pick at quarterback (Jake Locker), Nussmeier's offense scored 57 touchdowns and 434 points, the second-highest totals in school history (behind only the Huskies' 1991 national championship team). And in his three seasons at UW, his offenses got statistically better each year.

Under Nussmeier's guidance, Bama set records for offensive touchdowns scored (68), total points (542), total offense (6,237) and passing touchdowns (31) in the 2012 season--his first with the Crimson Tide. Despite a rebuilt offensive line, Bama ranked No. 6 in the nation this season in yards per play (7.15) and were ranked third in the nation in that stat in games against ranked opponents (7.59).


Those numbers look and sound pretty good to me. Bama scored 45, 48, 52, 45, 38, 20, 49, 28, 31 points in their last 9 games. They gave up 34pts to Auburn and 45 to Oklahoma...I don't think offense was their problem.

Go Blue!!

It's good to see some optimism on this board!
