some of you guys probably know that I have been one of Grant's biggest supporters (on this board) since he came here. I still think he was a good hire, and some of the problems he has faced haven't necessarily been his fault. Having said that, he is directly responsible for our lack of numbers, and our lack of offensive adjustments from year to year. he has also done a very lousy job at promoting the program. I love that he is a disciplinarian, and a class act overall. But the fact of the matter is we are the same program now that we were three years ago. We haven't necessarily gone backwards, but we stopped going forward a long time ago. his seat is on fire, and it will take some sort of miracle run in the SEC for him to keep his job in my opinion.
Lack of attendance at home games will get a coach canned as quick as anything.I think that's one of the reasons Pelphrey was let go when I personally would have liked to see him get at least 1 more year with the class he had coming in.Money talks and a more than half empty arena ain't attractive for any program.
As for Pearl,I'd take the guy in a heartbeat.He's the best option out there IMO.
