    It makes for a delightful week to savor Auburn's follies and anticipate Bama's chance to be sec champs. Most of us like to do both at the same time; but personally I look much more forward to Bama's game than whatever Auburn does of course. It's just a nice add on to the week to hear of Auburn's tribulations. I look forward to hearing more.

    The "FAM" wants Petrino. The "BLY" wants Malzahn. Pass the popcorn, please.

    Re: Breaking News: Gene Chizik fired!

    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 never knew that Coach Saban could "get down" or whatever like that.

    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?

    That they are insane. I cannot for the life of me figure out why any D1 football program would allow trooper within 100 miles of their facilities. i understand he is a good recruiter, but trouble follows him everywhere he goes.

    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.

    They're letting towel boy mind the store while they look for a new coach? Are you serious? How stupid are these people?

    they think it will enable them to hang onto recruits. They are probably right.

    The problem is the guys that want to play for him haven't exactly panned out so why bother?
