Usually, I do not post about what some random radio personality spews over the air, but this display of stupidity and ignorance so breathtaking, I must share it here.
Danny Sheridan was on Paul Finebaum show on ESPN Radio to talk about the coaching changes at Alabama.
Here is the Danny Sheridan's theory on why Saban made the move to Kiffin from Nussmeier; it is because Alabama missed out on Jameis Winston and Nussmeier doesn't know anything about dual threat quarterbacks.
The stupidity does not stop there. Sheridan also says that hiring Kiffin makes sense because Kiffin knows how to recruit and coach dual threat quarterbacks.
You can hear it for yourself here, it is within the first 2 minutes.
First, I think Alabama has done quite well with quarterbacks under Nussmeier. McCarron is going to be drafted in the first round and has been as good a quarterback as any at Alabama in history, with TWO (!!!) National Championships under his belt.
Second, obviously Sheridan has no clue that Nussmeier coached two superior dual threat quarterbacks in Jake Locker and Keith Price at Washington. One is already in NFL (and very successful) and the other is NFL bound.
Third, what duel threat quarterback did Lane Kiffin recruit and coach at USC??? Here are the last 5 starting quarterbacks - Cody Kessler, Matt Barkley, Mark Sanchez, John David Booty, Matt Leinhart. In what universe would somebody look at the list and say the coach for those QB's know dual threat QB's???
I do not understand how someone so transparently dumb has a position with one of the largest newspaper in the country. It just boggles the mind.
I've got a feeling Sheridan will be reacquainted with Nussmeier's acumen with dual threat quarterbacks next year plenty.
