More from The Ginger Assassin

The more I hear from this guy, the more I love him. I'm not going to be one of these morons already going into the "We're better off without Stafford" theme, because that's just silly. But I am definitely pumped about the attitude that Joe C is bringing to the job this year, and can't wait to see what he can do.

Here is Chris Low's (ESPN) interview...and here is the most interesting part, in my opinion:

You guys won 10 games last season. But when you're ranked No. 1 going
into the year and fail to play in the SEC championship game or a BCS bowl game,nobody obviously is going to be happy. How disappointing was last season given the expectations?
The most disappointing thing, when you consider how much hype we had coming in and we didn't do as well as we expected, was that it wasn't something that made everybody mad. That's what we're trying to get right now, an attitude that our backs are against the wall and we've got to earn everything. There were times last year I thought when things were going bad that people started hanging their heads. It was like we got in a rut and couldn't get out.

He also mentions that it is hard to take a leadership role when you are not playing, and he looks forward to being the leader of the team that he believes he can be. I'm looking forward to it.
