just how stubborn and hard-nosed he can get. As I said earlier, at times when disagreeing with Saban, he wasn't shy about expressing his view. Fulmer can expect the same.

FWIW, a couple of years ago someone linked Pruitt's Twitter account to our board as he was blasting someone at Georgia for not taking their football seriously. I'm not sure what the issue was but this event probably coincided with some of the issues discussed in these articles.

A "homerun or a strike out" is the analogy by the writer, and a good one, IMO.

I personally like a hard-nosed coach who won't accept anything but your very best.

I paid little attention to what the DN writer had to say after he made the halfhearted case that Tee and Steele would've been better choices.

That certainly put it in perspective...

Sounds like he has learned more than football from Nick Saban.  He is hiring assistants that know him, know his style, know his personality.
 All I have read is players love him.   We need hardnosed, and, it is indeed Babe Ruth or Mighty Casey, but I am parking my butt in right field.

You seem to get the point of why I posted the links. They were to show you just how hard-nosed he is, and not concerned with who this writer thinks should be coach, which is beside the point.

Personally, I like that intensity very much. That personality description is also the same one for Nick Saban.

Well, you are the smartest Bama fan I know (don't get the big head, it's a very low bar).  Good to see you back here on a more regular basis by the way.

Yup.  That intensity is going to grate on those who want to skate by.  If you want to be the best, those people need to be pushed so that they either step up or step out.

All men dream: but not equally. Those who
Dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds
Wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the
Dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they
May act their dream with open eyes, to make it
Possible. This I did.

It's a very low bar.  He's afraid to take the Wonderlic.
