Legends Poll: Auburn still not out of it

Hey everyone. Good morning to you. I really needed a good night's sleep and got it last night. Big up to my wife for taking The Daughter to school this morning, thereby clearing out for my final hour of slumber. The last hour makes all the difference.

A MAJOR THANKS: We set at least two HABOTN records yesterday: Most participants in a single campfire and most visitors in a single day. I'm pretty sure we also hit a record for most pageviews in a single day, too, but those calculations aren't completed until 11 a.m. or so.

Lesson learned? HOTTIES > everyone else.

* 1. Oklahoma (18)
* 2. Missouri
* 3. Alabama
* 4. LSU
* 5. Texas
* 6. Penn State
* 7. USC
* 8. BYU
* 9. Texas Tech
* 10. Florida
* 11. Georgia
* 12. Ohio State
* 13. Utah
* 14. Boise State
* 15. Vanderbilt
* 16. Kansas
* 17. Virginia Tech
* 18. Oklahoma State
* 19. Northwestern
* 20. Wake Forest
* 21. South Florida
* 22. Auburn
* 23. Wisconsin
* 24. California
* 25. Michigan State

Here is your panel: Frank Broyles (Arkansas), Lloyd Carr (Michigan), John Cooper (OSU), Fisher DeBerry (Air Force), Terry Donahue (UCLA), Vince Dooley (Georgia), Pat Dye (Auburn), LaVell Edwards (BYU), Hayden Fry (Iowa), Don James (Washington), Frank Kush (Arizona State), Dick MacPherson (Syracuse), Bill Mallory (Indiana), Tom Osbourne (Nebraska), John Ralston (San Jose State), John Robinson (USC), R.C. Slocum (Texas A&M), Bill Snyder (Kansas State), Gene Stallings (Alabama) and Virginia's George Welsh.

A semi famous ex Auburn football player that shares a name with a famous TV dog said tofay that Franklin is the workhorse of the offensive staff. Yet he's coaching QBs, WRs, RBs, and OL to a degree. He says it's an absolute mess and he pointed to an analogy somebody laid out in the 'Bunker'.

You hire a man to lead your math department and you give him a bunch of English teachers to support his cause?

I like it.

Franklin needs autonomy and the appropriate help if AU is going spread.

agreed. either you run the d*** spread or you don't. let him run whatever the h*** he wants or cut him loose. this 50/50 crap isn't going to cut it.

i think i've been pretty supportive of the coaching staff up until now but after having to sit through that game saturday night and listening to the player's responses yesterday it's obvious nobody knows what the heck is going on.

i never thought i would taunted by vandy students leaving a game. it's a new low. i don't care if they're undefeated or not. if we have a halfway competent offensive attack we win that game. we don't and we didn't. it's pathetic and inexcusable.

Tubs did say CTF was "working harder than anybody." So, why is he having to spend so much time at all the positions?
Why is something that's so easy for high schools and colleges across the country to understand so hard for Auburn?

The answer has got to be that the other coaches aren't onboard or they're just not adaptable.

What other big name school would hire Knox, for example, away from Auburn? Who would hire Ensminger?

Jay,
I have finally recoverd, semi- causiously from the GAME saturday night. i do have one question that still is haunting me, so i ask the HOTTIES for their take....
"Did Vandy ever stop us from running the Ace formation Stretch play we started the game with?"

Keep running it until they stop us, not until we stopped it ourselves!!!!

The problem revolves around 3 people and the relationships between them. Tony Franklin, Chris Todd, and Tommy Tuberville. It is obvious after the Chick Fil A bowl to Todd that Burns would likely be the starter at Auburn the next year. Franklin told him he would be the starter if he came to Auburn. Franklin told the offensive staff that Todd would be the starter...period. No if, ands, or buts. That was the beginning of the end. The majority of the players stand with Burns. Tuberville is allowing Franklin to do whatever he likes.

On a side note, Burns went to Tuberville prior to the Tennessee game and said either you let me play or I'm transfering. Tuberville explained that his actions were not the way things were done in Auburn, and said no. Shortly thereafter, a large amount of the "leaders" on the offense went to Tuberville and said they wanted Burns to start. You all know what happened afterwards...

There are a lot of problems right now that could be fixed easily, and some that can not.

If CTT would let Franklin do whatever he wanted, we would see signs of the spread working by now.

First, Tony Franklin is calling the plays. I don't even want to get into that debacle. Second, you can't tell me that Tuberville was the person who demanded us to stop running the ball and go into the shotgun formation in the second quarter. That would be Franklin who chose to run then chose to spread the field out. It is well known that Tubbie doesn't deal with the offense.

As an Auburn fan of many years I read but seldom comment on these blogs. I have to voice my opinion. A little background so I am not castigated for --- no idea what’s going on, no football experience etc. I played/coached at the pro level for several years. I have seen this before and Auburn's problems are due to ……MEDDLING.

CTT needs to man up and make a decision as to, YES Spread or NO Spread.

If YES, give CTF the keys and let him install it completely. CTF knows this offense and believe me it WILL work in the SEC. Next he needs to get the Offensive Assistants and jerk a knot in their tails and let them know to either learn and support this offense or look for other employment. The players may be unhappy with it but if they see a united effort and are given consistently progressive coaching they will play, if not they need to hit the road (as at Bama). Not exactly pretty but needs to be done to make this succeed. May not be a pretty year but there is no longer any other way to get it installed.

If NO then make CTF a Co-Coordinator and bring in someone who knows the alternative Offense. CTF may be a “Guru” on the spread but doesn’t have the experience or knowledge to call plays outside of the spread.

I do agree that there needs to be a couple of sets of “under center” plays for special situations and to keep defenses honest but the major thrust should be “spread”

Sorry so long and windy but had to get it off my chest. I will now slip back to “lurker” status and continue to read about my AU Tigers.

No way. No naming anybody a co anything that has an entirely different philosophy.

Also, do not believe in forcing the issue at the expense of the players who pledged their duties to Auburn. Yes, I know they get a reward, too. A free education. But a lot of these guys came here because the Tuberville camp has a knack for developing NFL talent.

Bottom line is the idea should never have been decided upon withou a solid plan of deployment. Meddling is an issue and it always has been. Only Nick Saban, Pete Carroll, and Bob Stoops seems to have total reign over their programs. The next guy will have to be one opf those types or you can forget championships at Auburn.

Only a hardcore SOB will take a collegiate program to a national title these days. Look around. Meyer, Carroll, Stoops, Miles, Saban, Tressel.

Tubs stands for too many good things to play in this arena anymore. He's done proving things to people. He's spent his whole life doing that.

He will step down at the end of the season and walk away a winner.

I always have thought that he had designs on the AD position. This season is kind of throwing a kink in those plans though.

Intersting post, Phred. That would not bother me. He's done a lot of good things. He's run it clean. However, he has one piece of hardware, only 2 appearances in ATL, and only two 10 wins seasons.

Blogger squirrel master said...

Crudup... I agree that Tuberville could have done better, but the two ten win season thing is stupid. He won 13 in 2004 and 11 in 2006... not just ten. He's had nine wins three times. I don't understand why ten is the magic number. He also went undefeated, which is something Saban, Meyer, Spurrier, & Les Miles have'nt done. Give the man a little bit of credit.

I just don't see it, Phred.

He has a great contract that gives him tons of protection, he has his professional life designed as he wanted, his program has been good and (likely) will be good.

I don't see him leaving just yet.

I say he leaves around 2012 and gets in broadcasting.

Jay G .. I hear you. We agree on the timing. That would coordinate with HS graduation, would it not. I just thought that is what he had in mind for on down the road. But, maybe broadcasting is it for him. I would enjoy him much more than others (being former coaches like Curry).

Crudup ... it wouldn't bother me either. I think he would be a good mentor for an up-and-comer, kind of in the Dooley mold.

Meyer has hardware of the highest ranking. There's a certain point where the "Auburn thing" is silly. Everybody should have the same goals. Conference titles and ultimately the crown jewel. Politics can only be so involved. So, no tears please.

Also, I don't think Auburn's going to sit around and fall to pieces while Tubs readies himself for retirement. It doesn't work that way. If you have a job you work it. Period.

will muschamp is too emotional on the sidelines to be a head coach in my opinion. I like the guy that doesn't freak no matter what's going on. I think that's franklin's problem now. He gets put in a tough spot, gets flustered, and loses his cool while calling plays.

Tuberville isn't leaving, so this is a moot point.

He wouldn't leave when things are down a bit. He doesn't think like that. If Auburn went 12-1 or 13-0 or something like that in 2010, well, you might want to keep your eyes open.

He's not tired of this yet.

is there any way to listen to the Auburn games online for free? I miss those days. If not, looks like I'll be getting my updates from the campfire.

What kind of attendance is everyone expecting at Jordan Hare on Saturday? If it was on national tv, it might have been pretty sad for an SEC game.

Peter,

You can listen to the games on auburntigers.com. Depending on where you live, you can also watch the game on espn360.com for free.

I have tried espn 360 a few times this year and it is pretty cool.

I would imagine it being free is a great marketing tactic and expect a nominal fee next year.

From the link that Sportsguy referenced earlier:

Tommy is a great coach. He has done great things at Auburn. More than anything he is great with the media. Almost to the point of brainwash.

Had this been going on at Alabama he would've been outed already. For some reason no one on the Auburn beat will ask the hard questions.

Endquote

Daaaamn, Jay! You're getting called out!

bulldog, its been free a couple of years now. Unfortunately, its only available in select markets. I've been trying to find a workaround for month, but to marginal success (the one had doesn't work anymore).

Well, it was more of a generalized statement toward all AU beat writers, but you're one of those, right?

Are you going to let them say you don't ask the hard questions?

:D
