    Re: Tommy Tuberville to become Cincinnati's Next Coach

    I can't believe Tennessee didn't consider him a strong candidate especially with his record against Bama, although I'm not so sure he wanted back in the SEC.
    Personally I always thought Tuberville was an outstanding coach and was possibly the best coach Auburn ever had.
    Coach Jordan had some success but not consistently like Tuberville, and I've said forever that Pat Dye, in my opinion, accomplished the least with the most talent of most any coach in SEC history. Yes he won a couple of SEC Titles but for about ten years he had the talent to win the national championship every single year and never did it.
    At any rate I think Cincy got a good one. I don't know how well Tubs will like Ohio though. He's pretty southern rooted.

    Re: Tommy Tuberville to become Cincinnati's Next Coach

    I DO assume a lot of the Tuberville hate is simply because he was the Auburn coach.

    Do I think he was a GOOD coach? Yes. But he also lost game after game after game where Auburn was most probably the better team. The final two games of 2001 (us and LSU), Ga Tech in 2003 and 2005, the Wisconsin bowl game in 2005, and even Arkansas in 2006.


    And at the risk of hitting the beehive, the fact is that Tuberville had the whole state pretty much to himself from 2001-2006. Not so coincidentally, he won every Iron Bowl from 2002-2007. He could play the "probation card," and we aided and abetted him with the Mike Price fiasco.

    I think he's a decent coach. He'd do well at Arkansas for their state, which is why I was a tad surprised his name never came up.

    Re: Tommy Tuberville to become Cincinnati's Next Coach

    I agree Bill, most of the vitriol on here for Tubs was that he was th au HC. I too thought Arkansas might talk with him, but maybe they did and he realized at 58 he did not want to go head to head with Saban, Miles and now Sumlin. As I have said several times, IMO he would have been a good hire for UT and his offensive philosophy ( not what he ran at TTU ) would fit the current players at UT. I expect him to do well at Cincinnati, although at this point who knows where they will wind up with all the realignment.

    There is talk of Cincy possibly ending up in the B1G. This realignment will ultimately kill the Big East.

    I agree he is a good coach. He did a decent job at Texas tech, and I heard it was hard to recruit there. Something about the lack of stuff in Lubbock.

    Plus if he went to the Vols, it would give a new meaning to the dislike of UT.



    Maybe Cincinnati will be his last stop, or a stepping stone to one last "big" school.

    Agree with Sip and others, I really thought Arky or UTee would hire him, and he would have a been a good fit at either place IMO.

    Ever been to Lubbock?

    The Big East will not have an autobid into the new BCS, so getting into a good bowl won't be as easy at Cincy as it is now.

    Still going to be easier than doing it at Texas Tech with Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas State, and West Virginia ahead of you.

    Perhaps he will get a raise out of the move. I do know I would rather live in the Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky area a lot more than Lubbock / West Texas.

    Re: Tommy Tuberville to become Cincinnati's Next Coach

    Tubbs is a better coach than many give him credit for, but most of his success at Auburn was due to the state of Alabama's program during his tenure.

    Once Alabama was no longer crippled and got a good coach, Tubbs was quickly dispatched.

    He really would have been a great choice for Miami though. He would not have had to worry that much about recruiting since there is so much talent in the area.
