    This is stupid on Auburn's part. As a BAMA alum, I am taught to hate everything Auburn, but this was dumb.

    My boss is an Auburn grad and he thinks Tuberville is God. I would say the majority of the Alum are going to hate this move.

    Personally, I think he is a great coach. I don't now if Auburn will find another coach with as much composure and a game management ability. I will trade him for "Phony" Al Groh that we have at Virginia any day of the week.

    Well, he is on the market. The problem that Auburn will face now is finding a coach that can recruit like Saban. They are going to have to match that hire if not one up it. With Tubs gone, Saban now owns that state.

    Damn, first Fulmer, now Tuberville. If Les Miles leaves LSU, I'm not gonna have a coach left to hate.

    I've heard Auburn's looking at Mike Leach, but I doubt he'll leave Tech after the amazing year they've had.

    Join me in hating Houston Nutt. The guy is like a god at Ole Miss, and he hasn't even done anything. Most of the players out there this year weren't even his recruits.

    Oh, and of course, Spurrier and Meyers. *shivers* Gross.

    I heard a rumor that Auburn was looking at Houston Nutt, too. But that's because I live in Fayetteville and everything always comes back to Houston Nutt.

    See I don't get that either. Tuberville just lost his job for trying out the Tony Franklin system. Why would they want a coach that runs that same system. Mike Leach runs the Tony Franklin system. It is a more pass heavy version of it, but it is the same offense. I knew they were retarded in Auburn, but I didn't know it was terminal.

    I can get on board with that. :cool: I hate Spurrier and Mile, but I don't see them every year. We play Ole Miss every year, so I get on board with that. There is no way Nutt is leaving Ole Miss.. If that wins a bowl game, they'll give him a lifetime contract. :lol:

    Besides, you can't hate Petrino. He and Saban both have that "We were good NCAA coaches who went to the NFL and got our asses handed to us so we crawled back to the NCAA even though we said we wouldn't" thing in common.

    Tuberville lost his job for the same reason Nutt lost his last year. They'd both been there too long, and they never made anything amazing happen.
