I can hear Jeff Speegle now, "Wouldn't you rather have been on Nick Saban's staff?"

Depends on whether he's black or not. Although "Why were you stupid enough to agree to be the head coach at UAB" is a multiracial question...

RE: What would you do?
What yourself.

The subject being referred to was some of the stupid and classless things that McGee was asked at the news conference when he was first hired.

The "Why were you stupid..." was an acknowledgement of just how bad things are here at the moment, and the multiracial part referred to it being something that could be asked of a new hire of any race.


If you are somehow trying to imply that I'm racist, you are utterly clueless.

I think he was implying that he didn't know what you were talking about. I remember some stupid race related question being asked of mcgre, but don't recall the specifics

RE: What would you do?
Couldn't tell... the "WHAT?" felt more outraged than interrogative. What was it, "How does it feel to be the first black head coach at a major college in Alabama?", something like that. The man was black, that's simple fact, and he had moved up to a head coaching job with all that entails. He was very impressive in that presser.

Speegle asked McGee how long he wanted to be a black head coach.

I ask "WHAT" and you leap to me implying you are a racist, smh. It was a dumb statement so I asked "what" which implies a question and not a statement.

RE: What would you do?
Then I apologize for jumping to conclusions. I need to get off the board for a while, I'm getting testy.

And frankly I'm not entirely certain that it's a dumb question for someone to ask *himself* before he takes the job. The deficit side of the ledger is very large when you look at the pluses and minuses of the UAB HC job as things stand.
