    He may talk too much at times, and make some "off the mark" statements, but seems to be getting it done with the recruits..., and on the field.

    And.., it's definitely working for him. Too say he's an idiot, worst coach in the league, etc.

    Obviously.., at this point, is just wrong.

    And.., doesn't make those people look too b*#[email protected] IMO

    Congrats to Dabo.

    Are all coaches in the country considered for that?

    The Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Award is an annual college football award given to the Division I Football Bowl Subdivision head coach whose team excels on the field, in the classroom, and in the community. The award is named for Bobby Dodd, longtime head football coach at Georgia Tech and was established in 1976 to honor the values that Dodd exemplified. Award recipients are chosen by a selection committee composed of college football experts and all previous recipients. The recipient is announced during half-time of Chick-fil-A Bowl on December 31 in Atlanta, Georgia. A formal presentation is held later, usually on the university campus of the recipient.

    Bobby Dodd rolled over in his grave with that performance by Yabadabado and Clumpson last night. They should take the award back and give it 2 a deserving coach. A coach of the years ,or even a decent coach, team doesn't give up the most points EVER in a bowl game. The only award he should get is best recruiter ,for getting Watkins, and maybe even not that since Kevin steele is probably the one that recruited Watkins.
