    Gotcha. I heard by Wednesday this week from Del Greco on the morning drive, and yes that would keep us from having to worrying about the hypothetical.

    Some talk says Auburn is announcing tomorrow or Wednesday. I doubt it unless a name breaks fairly soon.

    Do you not think he would be a good hire for Auburn? I know why you and I think Auburn would not be a good place for him but I personally think Auburn would be lucky to get him. Especially with his ties to recruiting in the South and their problems. I don't see any established head coach at a winning program going there so I believe they will be lucky to get a top assistant.

    I think CKS may one day be a great head coach - only time will tell. Regardless, the barn is a major program and I'm not sure their best move is to hire an unproved coach. Sure, it works out sometimes, but it's a miserable failure others. At this point, I suspect Malzahn is their man based on experience alone.

    Was Pat Dye an offesive coach? Regardless, I believe they need an offensive minded coach, and I believe that's where they will go. They can not beat us at our own game and that would be Kirby's demise as a top choice......imo. And we are what it's all about for them right now.

    Petrino is the next coach down at the farm. Both he and au are desperate right now.

    I agree its not their best move to hire an unproven head coach but I also think with all the good jobs open and with their problems it may be their only move. I figured Malzahn would rather coach Arkansas or Tennessee but who knows. He took a pay cut from Auburn to coach Arkansas State for some reason. I guess it could have been because of a falling out with Chizik.

    I hope you are right. How many times has Petrino beat Bama or Saban?

    According to al.com and The Huntsville Times, CKS did interview today.

    http://www.al.com/auburnfootball/ind...bamas_kir.html

    "Auburn has been shuffling through a list of potential candidates that includes Arkansas State coach Gus Malzahn, TCU coach Gary Patterson, Boise State coach Chris Petersen, former Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino and Louisville coach Charlie Strong."

    Alabama is 2- and 3-deep all over the place with full grown, meaner-than-he!! men. It's almost not fair making college kids play against them. Any Saban-coached team is going to be deep as he!! with recruits that have elite size, strength and experience at their position and they are going to play with incredible physicality.
    I support PAWS.

    I sure would like to know if Earle has heard anything of late on the subject of Coach Smart.

    It seems to me that *uburn hiring smart would be like landing the hot new girl for home coming. She sure does look good, but nobody really knows if she is a good girl, if she will put out.
