    Re: Believe it or not, even Heath Evans

    I heard Fisher today from a friend. But only if they clean house and he brings his own AD. Would probably be their best move, if it is even fathomable, but I don't see the power brokers on the plains giving up the control. Also heard Mike Stoops. Probably more realistic.

    Some Auburn fans calling for Heath Evans to coach

    Petrino and Auburn are made for each other. Petrino is desperate to get back into coaching and Auburn is desperate for a coach. Petrino would sell his soul to the devil for another chance and AU would sell theirs to win. AU doesn't mind character issues, Petrino is a character issue.

    Re: Some Auburn fans calling for Heath Evans to coach

    Not so fast my friends, we forget that Aubie can dazzle a top notch HC with their ALL IN-ness and fambley atomsphere. They are already launching a nationwide search for the best football coach in America and money is no object. No, wait, I am confusing the last HC search. My bad.

    I'm sure the OU fans would pay for the move. They are ready to run him out on a rail...

    Re: Believe it or not, even Heath Evans

    The truth is Auburn is going to be hard pressed to find a top flight coach. Let's look at the facts:

    1. You have to come in and coach and recruit against Nick Saban. At the end of the day this is the single biggest obstacle Auburn faces in getting a half way decent coach.
    2. Tenn, Arky, Kentucky are all looking for coaches too. Look for Tenn and Arky to open the pocketbooks.
    3. NCAA investigation into Auburn's program.
    4. Auburn's good old boy network is the real power. Any coach would know he would limited in his authority because of them. Coaches are a small click, they talk, and most know full well what coaching at Auburn is like (ask Tuberville or Chizik).
    5. Recruiting problems. Once again you are up against Saban, and LSU, UGA, UF, etc all clicking and locking down recruits.
    6. Current roster problems. I don't buy the argument that Auburn has a roster just full of 4 and 5 * players who just need a little bit of good coaching to turn the program around in a year. The team appears to be full of busts and folks with serious character issues. Much like Coach Saban had to purge players early on who wouldn't buy in, any coach at Auburn will do the same.

    The truth is Auburn is unlikely to get a top flight coach. History should be enough to show Auburn has never hired a home run. Add all the problems within the program and Auburn is looking at very difficult situation.
