Getting it Cranked Up, Tuesday Edition
Maybe we'll light the torch tonight as well.
(The picture at left is the coaches' hallway, barren, at 10 a.m.)
Here's what's happening at this hour:
- As you may have seen in other places, there was a team meeting this morning. I didn't relay that information to you because, frankly, it wasn't relevant. They discussed basic stuff like off-season weightlifting schedules and training room hours. They do this every year. Tuberville wasn't discussed.
- I'll be keeping an eye on Tuberville and Jay Jacobs today. Nothing (conclusive) has happened so far.
- As for the statement you see below from Kirk Sampson, I wouldn't read too much into it. Auburn felt like too many reporters knew about Tuberville's meeting with Jay Gogue (still not sure Jacobs was involved there) and wanted to take a proactive stance. The statement wasn't an affirmation of Tuberville. It wasn't damning, either. It was just an admission that a meeting had occurred. Nothing more.
