That's a WRAP

Hey everyone. I just watched one of the most surreal moments of my entire career.

Tony Franklin just packed up his office, loaded his SUV in front of the football offices and hit the road. Right there. Right now. The team is out back practicing right now.

He said he might have something to say tomorrow. Or maybe not.

Asked to describe "the best part of being at Auburn," Franklin said: "No comment."

Awesome.

Ridiculous, dude. 10 years is enough. Time for some competent offensive minds

Reminds me of the walk out of the athletic complex by Wimp Sanderson at UA. Sad and interesting at the same time....

I definitely would have recorded that with my cell phone if I was there.

Since it will take so long to recover from this anyway, I say to completely start over (meaning from the top). Tubs is a good CEO but has no understanding about offensive football.

Jay was this Tubs or Lowder?

I think this is an internal problem that expanded outward into Tuberville.

Nope. It has a camera, but it sucks.

It's a huge, huge deal. No doubt.

Not to bash the guy, but how would things have gone if Chris Todd was not brought in?

But that is sort of like asking, how would things have gone if "Destiny" was still pre-op when Mike Price hit town in P-cola?

I'm with Scottie WOW!!!

Jay, any time table for Tub's to address the media further on this?

Where does Auburn go now? Jay, any idea who might be calling the plays on Satuday? This really stinks for Auburn and for Franklin. I feel for the guy, I do not think he was ever given a true chance.

Jay,
well we move on with a game plan, what do you think it will be? how will be the primary play caller? do you tihnk that will have a run play caller and then a pass play caller?

Al.com has the video on Franklin packing and leaving

some things shouldn't be videoed. In six games, his reputation was ruined and he lost his job....

Lane Kiffin? I wouldn't wish it on the poor guy. Who in their right mind would trade one dysfunctional situation for another?

Tubs dresses better than Al Davis (at least wears clothes from the current century).

The video was like a car wreck, you shouldnt look but you do, I hated Franklin as a coach, but it was very sad watching the video, the man should have been able to leave with his dignity.
