First, I am not "negative". I was actually very enthusiastic about Applewhite. I literally posted "I'm excited" in the thread about him. I also like the DC hire and the S&C hire.Probably, but that is to be expected, your negative. This guy is well known in the coaching community and a QB specialist that has called plays. He's tailor made to solve UM's issues and a great hire. The coaching community knows this guy and that's what really matters. Do you really think someone coaches at Alabama with results he had and isn't a high caliber coach? Much better coach than Lane Kiffin, no comparison.
