The Gist of it, 11/18
I figure this is a HABOTN emergency.
- Tommy Trott is out for the next few months with a knee injury. Tuberville said the tight end is scheduled to undergo surgery in Birmingham on Thursday. He may miss some of spring ball.
"He'll be back for some things that he can do," Tuberville said. ``He won't be for all of it. It depends on when we have it. We have it scheduled a little early now but depending on how many, we've had over a dozen surgeries, depending on how many we've had that are able to get back, we'll decide that in January on terms of when we'll do spring ball. I want to have most of them back so we might back it up some."
- Tuberville had a humorous line during his meeting with reporters. His phone rang. He said it was his wife and he asked for a few seconds so he could text something back to her. Then he came with: "Those that have said my wife has left me, I promise she hasn't. She's still calling. Let me text her and I'll tell her I'll call her back."
There is/was a rumor going around that Tuberville and his wife Suzanne were having marital trouble. I guess that's another rumor you can throw into the unsubstantiated pile.
- Tuberville said Auburn's recruiting efforts are moving along at least as well as expected: "Recruiting is going fine. It's not affected by losing a few games. As coaches, you'd think it would help mentally a little bit. It really doesn't. A lot of the guys see they may have an opportunity to play a little bit sooner."
