Nothing to report, but here's a new thread

This is the view from Auburn's Athletic Complex earlier today, where Tommy Tuberville and Jay Jacobs held a long meeting to discuss the Tigers' football program.

I'll update with HOT information as it becomes available.

There is no man outside the complex with a sign.

Office Space was good when it first came out...but after watching it later working in an office, it's one of my all time favorites.

I'll be honest with you, I love his music. I'm a Michael Bolton fan. For my money, I don't know if it gets any better than when he sings "When a Man Loves a Woman".

After working in an office, I feel like in each department you can find those characters in real life...the irony is they've also seen the movie and are oblivious to the fact that one of the roles applies to them.

2 things not to say in public:

1. Necessary? Is it necessary that I drink my own urine other than its sterile and it tastes good?

2. I'm a Michael Bolton fan.

Eddie ... love the photo.

Reminds me of the episode when someone does it to the Kool Aid man's house and he acknowledges how irritating it is.

2:04 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Bob Slydell is a Michael Bolton fan. He's not ashamed.

Sean,

You are so right. It's that way where I work too. That's also what helps make The Office my favorite comedy on TV, because there is so much truth in that show that it's scary.

2:05 PM

I have to take my son to the dentist, eddie. So no sign holding for me. And because I will not be monitoring this constantly, something is sure to happen. You're Welcome.

This guy on Finebaum isn't very professional.

2:10 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

Surely this is a joke....

From Tom Dienhart...

"Expect a decision on the future of Auburn's Tommy Tuberville soon. If he returns, he'll have to shake up his offensive staff.

Offensive coordinator Tony Franklin was fired during the season. Others who could leave are offensive line coach Hugh Null, tight ends coach Steve Ensminger and receivers coach Greg Knox. Expect the new offensive coordinator to bring one or two assistants with him.

Early names being bandied about are Syracuse offensive coordinator Mitch Browning, Washington offensive coordinator Tim Lappano, Memphis offensive coordinator Clay Helton, Oklahoma running backs coach Cale Gundy, Tennessee Tech coach Watson Brown and former Kansas State coach Ron Prince."

If this is the list of people that have been burning up the phone and "stacking" their resumes on CTT desk, then he should've been fired, like yesterday.

Good God this is turning into a friggin mess. He'll be a dead man walking next year.

I agree Sean...

Let's get it over...one way or the other...

2:20 PM  
Blogger Sean from Ca$hville said...

Half the guys on Dienhart's list are from programs that had their fair share of offensive problems...obviously they weren't scoring enough points to keep themselves employed, that makes a whole lot of sense.

2:21 PM

Did Auburn contact Brian Kelly at Cinci?

Jet, I went back and George said there was to be an "announcement after meeting at 2:30." I take that as he said to expect an announcement, Jay has said otherwise. George is officially "on notice."

I think we can be certain that we don't know when there will be an announcement. It could be tomorrow.

Some lady called and ripped me (via a co-worker) for spelling Jay Gogue's name incorrectly.

I swear, I wish they would go ahead and do something already. I mean if they were going to keep Tuberville then they should at least say that to everyone and let him deal with this staff after the fact, if that is in fact a stipulation of his return.

Some over on Scout are saying the Gran is also in the meeting now? Any confirmation on this?

I'm sitting less than 30 yards from the AU football summit and there is no meeting, no announcement, no nothing.

In fact, let me go get a picture for you to prove what I'm saying is true.

How did she say it should be spelled? That is funny.

And Auburn plays LSU at Baton Gogue next year, right?

Of course, Jay is right. He is the leader of the blog.

Finebaum said earlier, end of previous show, that he is expecting some kind of annoucement today by 6. Just thought I would pass that along - sorry if it has been discussed already.

2:40 PM

She said it's "Gouge."

Also, the rumor about Eddie Gran being in The Summit is false. I just spoke with him. He's in his office.

Message boards are 0-fer today so far.

Are they in Jacobs' or Tubs' office?

The guy from Auburn Undercover said Jacobs'....

Finebaum said his sources say Tubs'....

I can see Jay G.'s story for tomorrow. The lead would go something like:

For the second day in a row, there is nothing of substance to report on Tommy Tuberville's future at Auburn.

Wouldn't that make for an interesting headline...Auburn Trustee uses Federal Aid money to Fire Head Football Coach.

2:44 PM

I've never met Scott Brown. I don't think I've ever seen him. An informal survey of the beat hacks reveals more Auburn experts who don't know him.

And he's the de facto Auburn expert.

With that said, he's correct on this one.

Well Jay while you are waiting why don't you see if Lebo will let you show the Basketball team how to shoot free throws?

Boston Legal is good but its downfall is the rise of Cable programming...if that show had been on 15 years ago it would have been a mega hit.

I'd say the percentage now is 1.1 percent.

Kind of like the Seinfeld show, ehh?

As far as a show worse than According to Jim, I'd say Full House or Family Matters. Both were on forever, and both sucked.

AUBURN, Ala. -- Auburn University announced a stunning series of moves today -- firing head coach Tommy Tuberville, plans for a 15,000-seat addition to Jordan-Hare Stadium, plans to build the Lowder Indoor Football Facility, and the naming of the new arena as the Colonial Bank Center.

The price tag of the moves is in the neighborhood of $500 million. An additional $50 million has been raised from an unnamed source to help Auburn lure its next football coach.

I'm guessing getting Monte Kiffin was a big sell on UT signing his son.

That's just my thoughts.

2:55 PM

Monte Kiffin is like 70 isn't he? His defense will terrorize the SEC for at least 2 years. And I am sure he is a tireless recruiter.

From now on, I promise to follow Sensi's lead and do the Hottie Shoutout first. By the end of the conversation, I always forget. Y'all come up with an official verbal salute ... like hinky hotties or something. We can say that like "hello."

Jay, can you validate what Evan Woodbery is reporting that the head football coach's office and the athletic directors suite are now closed? Also that virtually every member of Jay Jacobs'"senior leadership team" -- that is, the senior associate athletic directors in the department -- were huddled in the hallway just a moment ago. Now they're gone, presumably into Jacobs' office.
