Coaching football at a high-profile university is a totally different matter in the Internet age. Each loss is analyzed for days, sometimes by people who don't know an out route from an outhouse. Each decision is debated and evaluated as if world peace were at stake. Each comment is dissected and interpreted in every way possible.
Bottom line: Coaching at a big-time university is even more of an under-the-microscope job than it was 10 years ago. Fulmer addressed this topic in a profile aired as part of the "Head Coach" television show.
"There's all kinds of difference challenges coming at you ... probably more now because of the amount of coverage," Fulmer said of today's coaching experience. "The ability to communicate through the Internet and blogs and the talk shows and everything that's out there ... it's a tremendous amount of difference in the last five or six years."
