Glad no staff movement this offseason

I don't have an issue with a player praising God, Allah, or whomever they may believe for giving him/her the ability to play in a sport or make it through the game healthy.  I agree with you in that there is no way God cares who wins, and it was awful when Dabo mentioned that after Clemson beat Ohio State in the CFP semifinal.

I am a believer, and i even think its rediculous to think God decided you would win that game.  But from their perspective, i think they are just trying to mention his name to get people to consider their God, in hopes that maybe they will give Him a thought or two, and who knows, maybe it will lead to them finding the truth.  So i respect it, but also agree that God doesn't care who wins a sporting event...unless their is a far deeper reason like some fan/player possibly needed the win to keep them alive or maybe a losing fan/player needed it to humble themselves..who knows.

Eh we got a week to kill until actual new coach announcements let's have the Ron Brown argument again to waste time.

Im not saying i agree with Brown, but then would you also say that it would be wrong if a coach used his position as a platform to support LGBTQ rights?  For the record i believe everyone should be loved.  And everyone is loved by our maker.

Supporting people and asking for them to be discriminated against are two very different things.  If memory serves, Brown went to a city council meeting, gave One Memorial Stadium Drive as his address and backed a law allowing for landlords to evict people solely based on their sexual preferences.  Brown can believe what he wants, but giving Memorial Stadium's address as his own crossed the line in my opinion.

If Nick Saban backed the same law and wanted to be our coach would you have this opinion? #doubtful

I would. Don't need him, don't want him in that case. Not the victory but the action.

I dont recall the whole situation. Chances are one side believes what he did is basically genocide and the other side believes what he did was essentially the same as Christ baptizing John the Baptist. The answer is probably in the middle.

Apparently you misread what I wrote.  He can have his opinion, but using his place of employment to bolster his viewpoint and sway opinion would turn me off and I'd be against his hiring.

It was pretty obvious from comments by both Moos and Frost that Brown had to STFU about certain things to stay employed with the program. If he were to go back to coaching here. it would be controversial obviously but I don't see him stirring-up further controversy.

Remove Brown's name and insert Saban's. Still hold the same opinion?

I'm highly doubting more than about 4-5 people would really care.

 You would be very wrong about that. More than 4-5 people cared at the time. Even more would now.

 

Yes. I remember when he was hired back in 2018 that there were just so many people that it really bothered...

It was discussed here. A number of people weren't really into it but we're tolerant of the idea as long as he didn't do the stupid thing he had done before.

 

Maybe you missed it.
