He went 2-10 against the SEC, 0-9 against the ACC, and 0-1 against the Big 10.

By the way, BlazerNation is your best source for questions like this one.

The only ones of those I blame Watson for are the ones we lost because Watson swallowed his balls.

Specifically, MissStake, Kansas, Tennessee in'04, and Oklahoma.

I'm not saying we'd have won any of those games, but we didn't give ourselves a chance to win, because our coach was loading the bus in the fourth quarter.

We weren't losers until Watson made us losers.

Okay. With respect to D1, we weren't winners either.

I know you don't like Watson Brown. Unfortunately, he has been our most successful football coach to date.

Just curious...in your mind, does that mean he was our best coach?

We were a blank slate, with success at every level before that. The right coach could have won here. I'm not even talking about some miracle-worker. I just mean a motivated, passionate coach. Not a perennial loser. Hell, the quintessential loser.

With that said, the best teams UAB has ever fielded were some of Watson's teams. Callaway had a much worse record, and McGee's (so far) is even worse than Callaway's. I do feel like that has a chance to chance......the team does have a pulse.

My definition of a successful coach goes a lot deeper than just wins & losses.

Exactly.

Some of the biggest handicaps both Callaway and McGee have dealt with at UAB can be laid squarely at Watson's feet.

Perhaps, but the bottom line is still your record of wins and losses. College football is big business these days. It's very competitive for the almighty dollar. Wins bring in fans, and fans bring in money. If you don't win, you lose your job as a head coach.
