    Just to make this clear about Kirby Smart and the Auburn job...

    Thanks, Jess. I've been telling my aubbie husband for days that Smart would never go to AU and that they would once again make a subpar hire. I love being right!

    Re: Just to make this clear about Kirby Smart and the Auburn job...

    What I have heard is that KS was going to let the OC go and the powers that be was wanting to keep the OC. KS told them if I can not hire who I want then I will take the job. Is there any truth to this?

    lots of interesting and neat things here....but where is all this coming from? Kirby turned them down...Kirby wanted to fire this person and that person, and so on...

    So, no disrespect to Jess or anyone else, but where is all this coming from?

    I notice a couple of writers are disputing this.

    Smart was offered the job first. He turned it down. You can believe who you want but we have the facts and apparently, others have AU's official party line. I don't butt heads with other in-state journalists often -- only when I know who's right. And it's not them, this time.
    Both sides are correct.

    "If I were to offer you as coach at $3.2M per year, would you accept?"

    That is an offer without offering......

    Maybe I read too much into his comments, but on the Nick Saban Show, Coach Saban said that Kirby would be a HC in the "very near future" and he stressed "very near". I just have a feeling that something is in the works. Where? Who knows?

    I thought the same thing when coach Saban said it on his show.

    If you're asking me to cite who told me that, that won't be happening.

    I hope we have saban for atleast 5-7 more years but theres no telling.

    Tennesse, NC State and Cal are still open. Wisconsin just became available. I wouldn't read too much into what CNS said.
