The "FAM" wants Petrino. The "BLY" wants Malzahn. Pass the popcorn, please.
CBS is running an article that says that anyone who wants the AU job right now should be disqualified for stupidity: LINK
"Taking a job opposite Saban? That's career suicide. In six years at Alabama he has run off two coaches at Auburn (Tommy Tuberville resigned, or something, in 2008) and helped run off three at Tennessee. Saban could even be the reason Meyer left Florida. That's not a sure thing--who knows what Meyer was thinking in 2009, and then 2010?--but it has to be considered. Sharing a conference with Nick Saban is like sharing a steak with a lion. Only one of you wins that battle. And it's not you."
Considering the new round of NCAA investigations underway perhaps they should just appoint a long-term interim coach.
I hear John L Smith is available.

I found a nice chinese rendition of Cheezedip and staff waiting for Jay Jacobs in the coaches planning room after the Alabama beat down. I think Cheezedip is going to be ok. (Warning Subtitles)
They got about the only coach who would let certain persons hire their staff for him. They were turned down by decent coaches who insisted on hiring their own staffs. Now, Trooper is running things. What does that tell you?

The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt.
If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don’t have to worry about the answers.

I just thought of something. I believe Chizik is the shortest tenured head coach in *U history. Doug Barfield had 6 seasons. Tiny terry was in the middle of his 6th season when he left. Dye had 12 years. Tubbs had 10. If there ever was an *U coach with a shorter stint, it would definitely have been in the pre-Shug days.
