    Re: breaking barn news

    Too bad. I was starting to like this Gene Chizik guy. Really though, didn't we tell the Barn this was going to happen? In 09/2010, didn't we tell them something like this was going to happen when you didn't win the right way? After that NCG, I had all kinds of Barn fans tell me that was the best 180k they ever spent (in all seriousness, I don't believe that really happened -- well, can't prove it anyways). Well, maybe so but you reap what you sow. Enjoy your next Coach, Barn and more years of mediocrity.

    That is my opinion on what is going on. There is no way that AU is looking at this guy as the next HC at this point. They would have to fire Chizik and then strike out with there top 3-5 candidates before they would get desperate enough to hire someone like this.

    I know what ya mean. That would almost be as crazy as firing their 4th all time winningest coach who had more victories in a row over their most hated rival than any coach in their history and replacing him with a guy who had a terrible winning percentage and very little experience at a crappy football school.

    I believe that was a mutual decision which is why Tubby received the remainder of his contract. Officially he "resigned" but I have no doubt it was a mutual decision. It was obvious his last year that he was very unhappy and it was equally obvious that the AU PTB wanted him gone.

    Re: breaking barn news

    The Louisville OC mention is a just a smoke screen or misdirection in my opinion. Let the journalist snoop around some coordinator candidates in that guy's tier for lead while they're talking through back channels to agents about a guy with a little more name but doesn't want Auburn talk derailing his current team's season. After taking a waiver wire hire on a lame duck coach at ISU, Auburn can't fire Chizik without planning to acquire a coach with some head coaching success on his resume.

    Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if the agent they are talking to is just name dropping other guys he represents to help all his clients get a pay day out of it. I'd try to figure out this Watson guy's agent and who else he represents.

    Seriously, that Auburn247 article wasn't news and didn't change anything that we already knew.

    There's a good chance he may be fired. There's a chance he may return. No decision has been made yet.

    So why is everyone so excited about this story?

    it's such a strange story. "we are forming a committee to decide if we might fire him and if we do here is a random guy we should consider replacing him with"

    Don't recall I have ever seen any school do this

    only the boogs

    Re: breaking barn news

    The Barn is going to be lucky to hire anyone worth having, coaches are not stupid. Taking that job is like walking through a un-cleared minefield, never know when something will blow up. Add to the fact GC won a NC two years prior and they're letting him go, harsh. Coordinators hired and fired by the bushel. Roadblocks of Lowder, Dye, Raine, etc. Oh and, Nick Saban up the road. Big names (unless they're toxic already), not a snowballs chance in.................
