And because of that foundation, both programs needed to be gutted before condemnation

Good article.

Wow I didn't realize that Watson had coached McGee at Oklahoma in 1994, before Watson took the UAB job. Interesting.

His record of 62-74 at UAB looks pretty good compared to what has taken place since he left (22-53).

Watson is the best FBS coach UAB has ever had and he sucked. Hilyer should have been that guy but most of Brown's teams still would have beaten any from the Callaway or McGee era. Due to lower academic requirements Watson had more talent but I think he also had better assistants. Bill Clay, Pat Donohoe, and John Neal were better than anyone we've had on D since Brown left.

McGee can change that opinion Saturday night.

We weren't losers until Watson made us losers.

RE: "Brown set foundation for both Vandy, UAB."
One can only speculate what improvements of Watson Brown's record might have happened if the facility upgrade in Callaway's first year had been done in the mid or late 1990s instead of after he left. It just may work out that after the passage of time and the cooling of passions, we may realize that Coach Brown did much better with his given situations and facility limitations than many gave him credit for at the time. First some coach will have to do better than Brown at some point yet to come.

Nope.

I watched Watson Brown put better football players on the field than the opposition and still lose, time after time.
