Honesty is the Best Policy

Alabama coach Nick Saban fired a shot at South Florida's admissions policy. "There are a significant amount of players who don't qualify and they end up being pretty good players at some other schools," Saban said in an interview with the Birmingham News. "I think there are six guys starting on the South Florida defense who probably would have gone to Florida or Florida State, but Florida and FSU couldn't take them." Cheap shot? It certainly came off that way to USF coach Jim Leavitt, a rising star who did not care for someone dumping mud on his team's historic accomplishment.

Well, Coach Hair Plug is right and only being honest . South Florida's team is made of SEC rejects.

Texas A&M officials have examined Dennis Franchione's contract to determine if he violated the terms of his deal, CBSSports.com has learned. Franchione is under fire after the Friday revelation that he operated a secret website for three years. A certain segment of powerful Texas A&M officials "want him out" according to a source but there is no immediate move to fire the coach. The examination of the contract seems to be an indication of Franchione's deteriorating relationship with his superiors. The website scandal combined with a blowout loss to Miami this season, a 29-24 record in 4 1/2 seasons and a $2 million salary, has led to the dissatisfaction. The contract runs through 2013.

Fran and Tubbs are very similar to me in their attitudes. Both are arrogant and cocky for no apparent reason. When you have ears that take up more than half of your head, or have a voice that sounds like you are holding your nose at all times.....what do you have to be cocky about. Both obviously don`t have "Great" teams. Nor do they have the FULL support of the fans bases. I honestly don`t think that A&M will want something similar to what they have now. I could be wrong, but it seems to be a lateral move if they hire Tubbs.

Biggest Question is If he does go...who could Auburn get to replace him?

My top choices would be:
Spurrier (Obviously)
Muschamp
Pat Dye (again)
Jimbo Fisher
Petrino (Very Doubtful)

Maybe even Mikey Shula (ha ha ha)

I say either Muschamp of Gene Chizek.....Jimbo over Pat Nix though.....Spurrier aint going anywhere

ShakeYour$Maker said...

Pat Nix would be an excellent choice. Although the man hasn`t had that much experience in coaching...he is truly an geniune Auburn man...he loves the school...he loves the tradition....and the man doesn`t hesitate to cry after an emotional win. (Very Pat Dye-ish)

Keep Muschamp leading the defense w/ James Willis on LBs, Terry Price on DE, Don Dunn on DL, and Eddie Gran with the running backs....the rest can go with Tubby if he leaves.

Kevin Knox is allowed to move on....we need more productive recievers

King of Tigerland said...

King of Tigerland said...

.....shouldn't you be in the middle of a marathon phone conversation right now?

Daddy said...

Tubs is building a nasty house right now in auburn in the new white oaks neighborhood. I dont think tubbs is going anywhere either, but I also dont think a house would stop him from going if the offer is right.
