Coach. If Kelly was hired by Alabama tomorrow, what would happen to their program, with all of the elite talent they have? (Let’s assume for grins that nobody would flee the program).
With the class that Kelly just recruited, what would Lou (edit - oops, meant Nick here, of course!) Saban be able to accomplish if that’s what he had to work with?
Talent is important, but alone it’s not enough to get you to the top. You need a coach who knows how to use it. Charlie Weis had some amazing talent and squandered it.
So, for as long as Kelly is the coach, my expectations will always be tempered. They will do well, but this past season is probably as good as it gets. Not bad, way better than the WeisWillinghamDavie years, but most of us long for that NC.
