The HABOTN plan
My goal is to hold a campfire tonight, but it could be really late. Like midnight. I'm sure some of you will be around and chatty at that time ...
Players were available for interviews. Assistant coaches were not.
- Tuberville said he's now considering all options at quarterback. That includes Barrett Trotter and, I guess, Neil Caudle.
- Here's the complete line from Tuberville about his job situation: "I hope to be here. If you have good years and then you have one bad year, so be it. It will work its way out. I don't worry about those things. I worry about coaching. We've got five more games to go, and I'll let the higher-ups figure that out."
- Taking a page out of the (now defunct) MCP, Tuberville said the coaches again did a poor job of coaching tonight.
- Tuberville said it wasn't a mistake to fire Tony Franklin in the middle of a game week.
- As you expected, Auburn apparently streamlined its offense again. That's what Jason Bosley said. I believe him.
- Bosley said he found out about Tony Franklin's firing via cell phone from friends before he learned anything official.
