Fulmer is totally FOS. His comments totally lack class. He was by far the biggest reason for the program's deterioration--and now he tries to pretend that that wasn't the case. It's the administration's fault! Please--man up, dude. This was his problem in his last several years as head coach--always making excuses and sidestepping the blame. I've come to dislike the man.
It is always a risk to fire someone in the SEC, even a poor or mediocre coach, because the conference is so good and you never quite know what you're getting with the new guy. Kiffin would have quickly turned the program around--we just got very unlucky when Carroll suddenly resigned. I won't say that Dooley was a good coach, or might have been--but when he took over the SEC was probably the toughest it has been in 40 years. bama, florida and georgia were all top 10 teams--auburn won a national title; even kentucky, miss. state and vandy were much improved. When Fulmer took over, the SEC was not nearly as strong--florida was the only great team; georgia was decent but not exceptional, and all of the SEC west teams were in a trough==not good. I'm sorry Fulmer is so delusional--but I've come to expect it from Mr. Excuse Maker.
