Well I guess Mike Shula is back to being stupid again. Despite being pounded in the ground by Auburn a few weeks back, Mike Shula for a while seemed to be getting his mojo back.
To listen to the callers into the Paul Finebaum Radio Show, Mike Shula was a recruiting genius. He knew how to go into homes and recruit. That theory came crashing down at 4:00 p.m. CST Tuesday, when highly sought after Florida prep quarterback Tim Tebow committed to the University of Florida.
For a year now all we've heard is how Tebow is the best quarterback ever to come out of high school. From Bama webmaster Rodney Orr to Forrest Davis, all said he was a lock for the Tide. He was going to be the next Joe Namath and Kenny Stabler all combined into one.
You can bet that in the morning the Birmingham papers will be downgrading him in their prep recruiting rankings. They'll say he was just another Billy Ray. They'll make comments like Shula realized in the end that he didn't fit their offense. Yeah right.
By 6:00 Tuesday night Bama callers phoning local radio shows were saying that Shula had blown it. Many were saying that he's lost his edge and that this will have a big effect on the rest of the recruiting season. My what a difference 24 hours can make.
Tide fans were so enthralled with the Tebow sweepstakes that they were even tracking Mike Shula's flight path on the internet over the last couple of days. Don't believe me? I don't blame you... I wouldn't either unless I saw it myself. Here's the link: http://flightaware.com/live/flight/N1UA
Yes, this holiday season just seems to get better by the hour. If you're Mike Shula it can't get over quick enough.
