Tuberville speaks, 10/28

This is a (more or less) live account of what Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville is discussing at this hour.

  • On Ole Miss: "They were left with a lot of good players. This is basically the same team we've played the past two years. You can tell they're a much-improved team."

  • On kickers: "Everybody but Clinton Durst made their field goals today. We probably won't make a decision on that until game time."

  • 1s on 1s: For the rest of the season, we'll go (1s on 1s) for at least 40 minutes per day. We're doing a lot of things to finding the key to putting four quarters together."

  • On OLs: "One thing we'd like to do is play a few more guys. When you have injuries and you're playing more guys, you're going to run out of juice."

  • On Bosley back at C: "He had a little bit more experience with that. I thought it was a good move at the time."

  • On kickers again: "Wesley is a muscle guy. He's trying to get a little mroe technique-sound. Consistency has been his problem. Clinton and Hull -- they're more technique-oriented."

  • Confidence?: They were excited about playing last week, as they've been the weeks before. The bottom line is that we haven't executed well. We haven't changed that much in terms of what we're doing. In the long run, it has a little bit to do with depth."

  • Struggling: "We're better than we were three weeks ago. We need to get better every day in practice. That's what we can handle. We take it in stride and worry about what we can control."

  • What's wrong with the offense: "We don't have a broad range of offense in right now for Kodi. We have enough in to get the ball down the field consistently. It comes down to Kodi being able to make those reads."

  • Opposing tailbacks > Auburn: "That's really disappointing. Their speed and quickness, we obviously didn't match up with them very well. You have to give them credit for what they did. We didn't get confused. Execution wasn't where it needed to be."

  • Did your team quit?: "We haven't quit yet and we never have quit. Our guys have a lot of pride. Fatigue is a factor in there. People are just looking for excuses. We have no excuse."

  • On Burns' game at WVU: "He didn't do anything fancy in the passing game. He made some throws. He's going to be a good quarterback. We've got to give him some help. It goes to the kicking game. It goes to the defense. Sunday was probably his best practice. He's showing a lot of improvement."

  • Heaters?: "I knew we had ordered them. I wasn't thinking about that. It wasn't cold enough. When you have players running up and down the field, heat is the last thing you need. That didn't cause us to lose the game, by the way."

  • Offense: "I think the offense is doing a good job considering we've been running this stuff for three weeks."

  • Jerraud Powers and Neiko Thorpe: "They were out there. We'll see how it goes."

  • Prepare for next year: "Nah. There's always a build process. When we were 13-0, we had a lot of young guys in practice. There's never a rebuilding year. We have so many freshmen playing. We'd like to cut back on that."

  • On Enrique Davis: "He'll have to wait his time, but I'm sure he'll have a an opportunity to play this week. I haven't seen a lot of him with (Cordera Eason) in there."

I like the comment about first team against first team. I'm certainly no coach, but I would think that the best way to prepare for your opponent would be to go against the best you have in practice.

Ok, this comment has me confused:

"On OLs: "One thing we'd like to do is play a few more guys. When you have injuries and you're playing more guys, you're going to run out of juice."

So CTT wants to play more guys on the OL - got it.

But when he plays more guys on the OL they re going to run out of juice?

I would think playing MORE linemen would keep them fresh?

Coachspeak.

The OL comment in regards to "running out of juice" was silly.

We have depth problems? Really??

"We worry about what we can control.". Which is? Blocking? Tackling? Catching maybe?

"Fatigue is a factor in there. We have no excuse.". Nice. An oxymoron.

On Kodi-

"Sunday was probably his best practice. Puke. Heard it before.

On Enrique Davis-

"He'll have to wait his time.". What!? Watch any film, coach?

So how long ago did Tuberville start his coaching career? And I get a laugh out of anybody who says Auburn can't do better than Tubs. Puhlease.

Heaters on the sideline are way overrated. It just wasn't that cold.

I wish AU would have a bad practice, that might mean a good game. There is an adage in coaching that sometimes a bad practice means a good game.

You just can never tell. I had a team that won its last 8 regular season games and lost in the first round of the tourney. Go figure. I thought we were on a roll and it was a like another team showed up. I guess my point is that there is more to team chemistry than people realize. Coaches can't control it. You can't recruit for it. Sometimes players look like they are a good fit, but they change, it is call the maturation process. That is why a college team will be different from one year to the next. Very unlike the professional leagues. I get frustrated when I hear fans talk about players like they will never change, either good or bad. There are so many untangible variables in college. The pro leagues, other than free agents, are fairly consistent.

The players are not like some college video game that you can plug into a scenerio and expect results. Yeah, I know that "is what the coach is supposed to do". Long term motivation is the responsibility of the players. Short term motivation that a coach inspires is not what wins in the long term. "Playing with Emotion" is way overated. Playing with intensity, now, that is another story.

What does wikipedia say about Muschamp?

Potential Auburn Head Coach Position

Soon after Auburn's current head coach Tommy Tuberville lost his fourth game of the Tigers' 2008 season against West Virginia, rumors began to circulate that Muschamp might return to Auburn, this time as head coach. Though earlier in the year it looked as if the loss of Muschamp had not affected Auburn's defensive gameplay, all four of the Tigers' losses at this point had been a result of blown leads of 10 points or more.[17]

Muschamp is also rumored to be a potential candidate for the head coach positiong at Clemson University, which was vacated by Tommy Bowden on October 13, 2008 and is currently held in an interim status by Dabo Sweeney.

It doesn't matter if she's a hottie or not. It doesn't even matter if she's 100 years old or not. She is just being inappropriate. Now, y'all don't know me, but for ME to say that...well, it's just got to be true.

Auburn has a QB coach?

Question for all.
If Tubs is willing to make the changes to his staff and he stays, taking into account how bad this season has been, will anyone be pissed if he goes duck hunting instead of doing EVERYTHING he can to turn this ship around?

Auburn is desperatly lacking a QB coach.

I'm off to workout. It will probably take me 15 minutes of reading to catch up when I get back.

Is it getting close to time for a camp fire for the heck of it?

I don't see duck hunting having anything to do with coaching Auburn. Everyone deserves time off.

3:51 PM  
Blogger EDDIE4AU said...

Just Win- His duck hunting trips have nothing to do with him trying to win. Having rumors float around in a state that you are currently in and not denying the rumors has impact. I believe he duck hunts in a non-contact period of recruiting, so it should not affect that.

I won't mind if he goes duck hunting. lol

Sorry for the lateness of video today.

We're actually still in the process of getting player interviews. I miss the old days.

Anyway, I'm building one right now that will star Kodi Burns, The Head Coach and ... maybe Wesley Byrum. Who knows?

I'd love to hear a beat writer ask Tubs any of the following questions at the next press conference: 1) "Coach, without using the words much-improved, how would you describe your upcoming opponent?;" 2) "Coach, based on your last 5,000 post-practice press conferences, we know that the last practice certainly was the hardest, most productive practice to date. Would you please elaborate on what constitutes a "great practice?" 3) "Coach, would you consider hiring Jan Terri as the team motivator?"

jan terri would certainly improve team speed. poor guys would be running for their lives.

Is Jan Terri available?

Is she alive? Can we confirm?

Maybe Auburn should runs Tubs and hire De Orgeron.

At least when he gets fired he'd leave a lot of good recruits behind.

someone confirmed in an earlier thread that Jan Terri is not only alive, but has recently saved the world from an alien invasion.

I've never understood what Kiffin did to be so high on everybody's list anyway. He was a co-offensive coordinator at USC and was miserable with the Raiders.

Since, I can't seem to make any of the above categories, I am tempted to try to make the Banhammered one.

Nahhhh.

Anyway, CTT should be fired.

Jan Terri made a video loosely based on how she saved the world from aliens:

The HABOTN is almost getting too hot to keep up with. I need some way og having the comments read to me in real time so I can keep up throughout the day.

Finebaum wants Tubs fired and he wants to claim responsibility for that because he said it would happen upon Saban's hiring.

4:31 PM  
Blogger Monica said...

Huge Bingo to Crudup.

Does anyone know and/or will you tell me WHY Finebaum and CTT don't like each other. Don't give me the "it's just a show." I know the difference between the entertainment and the genuine dislike of CTT.

I heard Finebaum trash bama during the whole coaching hire. He goes where the drama is. However, he has a real dislike of CTT. Why?

Was it already common knowledge that Jan Terri had a Daily Show appearance?

I saw a link to that somewhere and couldn't get it to work.

Now we can breathe her in.

4:47 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt (zs) said...

vaguely intriguing? is that like intrigue that is there, but not strong enough to warrant your attention, so you go about your business without giving it thought.

Monica, I'm too poor right now to pay for 400 comments a day. Maybe in the spring, when things slow down a bit. I think I can afford to be read 40 or so. Therein lies the delima. I can just read 40 comments myself.

I wonder if Tubs got his free taco. That'd be vaguely intriguing.

anyone here from jaybar lately? I'm feeling like some insider scoop from his nephew who's on the team and friends with Grape Slush is in order. Maybe he'll tell us that practices are the best they've been all year.

I liked that twangy song that you had at the end of the video. What was that?

Did you get snow up there today?

It's some canned audio file that comes with iMovie.

Sounds like it was a pretty good press conference. Glad we cleared up "Heatergate" (by the way I love how any scandal can just put gate at the end of it and it makes it sound so much more legitimate!) Also, interested to read his response to the did the team quit question. Mindbaum has been killing this clip as he always does. J Gee, did he go anymore indepth about Pat Dye. From what Mindbaum was saying on the radio today that the only reason the question was asked was in response to Dye's interview yesterday. Just be interested to know what he had to say.

I leave for a couple of hours and I come back to at least read the word "Ooltewah". Which is about 20 miles from where I am located by highway...a lot less if they would build a bridge.

Blogger James in B'ham said...

The Ooltewah connections are kind of creeping me out here. I was born an raised in the Ham but moved to Ooltewah my senior year of high school. Eddie and I talked about this in the campfire one night I think. That was 18 years ago.

So me, Eddie, RK, Scottie, and someone else actually know where this place is - scary stuff.

I wonder if this is like the seven ways to Kevin Bacon thing?

Sorry Monica...didn't know a new thread had started...supposed to be working...now home.
It was a private detective that said he was submitting a report to the NCAA on 6 football players of a certain school for recruiting violations. John and Barry just blew him off.

James, I'm the other one who knows where Ooltewah is located. I went to Lee College

I just don't see Muschamp as a head coach. Besides, if we do get a new head coach, and offensive dude might really be refreshing.
