Nutt cashes in

Don't hate. Houston Nutt played the game and the rewards are going to set Ole Miss back a few million bucks. They're good for it.

The Rebels' coach, said to be coveted by Auburn, agreed to a new contract today that yielded an $800,000 raise, a four-year extension and cash money for his assistants.

Not too shabby for 8-4.

So where does Auburn go now, you ask? It's not clear if Auburn ever was headed toward Nutt. Things are so low-key these days. Third parties talk with third parties so everyone knows who wants what before The Principles even get involved.

If "contact" fizzles, it looks the same as if contact never occurred.

I definitely think he now has some folks attention, if he didn't already.

BTW, I think I'm just about over being mad about the whole "resigning/firing" thing. It still doesn't make sense to me, but there's no use stewing about it. So I'm going back to my original picture.

I know, the baby's a lot better looking! :)

Save me a seat on the Turner Gill bandwagon. That was a very well coached team that just beat a good Ball St team. Yes, they gave up yards, but they forced turnovers, took advantage of forced and unforced errors, and played with solid fundamentals. Nothing short of incredible how far Buffalo has come in 3 years under Gill. Gill has won more this season than Buffalo had won in its entire D-1A existence before he arrived.

If Jacobs doesn't at the very least bring him in for a serious interview (not one of those token slap in the face jobs either) then Jacobs is even dumber than I gave him credit for (which isn't much).

Frequently wrong, but never in doubt.

Wow, after that game tonight, I'll be so disheartened if we don't pursue him. If he doesn't want to come to AU, that's ok. But we sure as heck ought to go after him.

Blogger AUWade said...

Buffalo played well, but they really benefited from Ball State turnovers. Gill might be a great coach, but does he have enough experience to make it work here at Auburn? That's a pretty big jump. My guess is it's Jimbo Fisher's job to turn down anyway. Oh wait, isn't his agent Sexton too?

CovingtonTigerFan, let it go and look to the future. I wish the past coaches best, but we need to look ahead now. What is done is done. There is no way that can be fixed now.

We can build for the future if we make a wise coaching choice. From what I have seen, we likely won't be able to get a coach on Tuberville's level, but we could very well in up with a better coach. It is just a matter of finding the right guy.

It is going to be very interesting to see how Jacobs does with this hire. This is a decision that will affect Auburn long term. I hope it is made within the next couple of weeks. The sooner, the better.

1:34 AM

Gill would likely have a much better chance of being successful at Auburn than would Fisher. Although I am sure Bowden has been grooming Fisher, you can't beat true head coach experience.

Question for you hotties - does the intensity of the Auburn/Alabama rivalry and all of the media craziness attached to it provide a plus or a negative for coaches outside the SEC?

7:33 AM  
Blogger TarHeelTiger said...

not so much the Iron Bowl intensity, but the unrealistic expectations of the fans of 6 SEC schools who expect their teams to be in the SEC championship game every year. Obviously, that's a mathematical impossibility, so no coach can meet those expectations.

I would be happy with Turner Gill also. He apparently is known for his recruiting and now has head coaching experience.

My only problem with him is that every time the Nebraska job comes open his name will now come up. I would guess it is his dream job. That could happen with anyone though I suppose.

8:39 AM  
Blogger Muschamp Wuz Here said...

Cowher. Gruden.

FSJ:

You think Cade Holliday is the X-factor today?

I pick UF by a touchdown and a half today. They don't fumble snaps. They very rarely throw INTs. And they have a very good QB.

Very fitting that Alabama and Florida play for the league crown today. The best two teams in a surprisingly watered down league this year. I don't think either of these teams will beat the Sooners though.

For once, the Sooners are actually that good talent and execution-wise.

Ahhh. yeah actually Cowher is first on my wish list..gonna need a good staff though..ain't gonna happen anyway..I mean we were going after Houston freakin Nutt...I like the thought of fisher or gill as well though..I haven't even heard of Buffalo til recently..don't know alot about him he seem to have a good rep..

Muschamp:

I'm right the opposite...

I think the de facto National Championship game is today.

Oklahoma doesn't play defense.

As for the game....I think Alabama punches Florida in the face and makes them like it.

Cody stuffs the middle and takes two blockers. Leaves McClain open to create havoc....

Going to be a great one to watch.

8:48 AM  
Blogger Muschamp Wuz Here said...

I hear ya, FSJ. Won't surprise me a bit for Bama to win. But UF doesn't spend too much time in the middle and they are the masters of misdirection.

If Auburn decides to go for the "unknown" hire, then Kelly > Gill.

I like Gill, but he has limited experience vs. Kelly, who has a proven track record of winning at several levels.

One win over a undefeated team does not make a HC candidate.

Maybe I've missed it but I haven't heard a lot of the talking heads bring up Cody vs Tebow. He loves running up the middle on the quarterback draw and I just don't see that happening against Cody. If you take that factor away and put pressure on down-field passes Alabama starts to look very strong and a likely winner...in fact it could get ugly. If Ole Miss beat them at home Alabama can surely beat them on a neutral site.

So, hubby (Bama) and I are talking last night about all the "fans" who have jumped on the Alabama bandwagon this year. And he said he use to go to Auburn a lot in his younger days (when we lost 9 years in a row) and he couldn't get over how Auburn fans supported their losing teams. He said, "Who wants to go support a team when they are losing?" Bingo! That's the difference in Auburn fans. We don't like losing, but we support our team regardless. I've been buying season tickets for years. He doesn't, so he stays home and watches his team on the TV (when they are winning).

10:11 AM

I think Turner Gill would be a good fit, but I'm afraid he would be waiting around for that Nebraska job as well. But we really roll the dice with anyone they select. Also, don't think Nutt was ever a serious consideration. I think they know there would be a lot of protests with that hire! Did get him and Sexton richer though, so nicely played.

Only until about 3:30pm when the Gators have the game so far out of reach it doesn't matter. Then will get right back to Gill, Fisher, etc. We'll be very serious then.

am I the only one who believes AU didn't know they were going to need a new coach until this week?

Wow... two radio shout outs in two days.

I'm humbled.

Very serious. You'll love it. Really. These folks can talk some coaches. I thought we had Gill hired last night, but I guess someone forgot to tell JJ.

Love for the Hotties! Thanks for listening!

Tar Heel,

you really believe tubs caught them off guard? you really think he resigned (truly resigned, not pushed, etc)?

what happen to the live caht sensi?

thanks AUTIGER3 ... I'll look forward to it ... I feel kinda like I'm crashing a frat party here ...

Walter,

There's probably over 1000 posts from the past two days, the majority of which deal with the AU coaching search. That in and of itself show the interest here on the HABOTN about things AU.

You should spend the day reading those if you aren't interested in today's football games.

As much as I DESPISE bammer, I will be socializing with friends and watching the SECCG game today.

Walter - Then you should know better than to think or say something like we care more about the Gator's game than our own coach. Now relax. The mania will pick right back up later today. I promise. :-)

War Eagle!

I don't think you are. There's been so much coach talk the past few days I think this game is a welcomed diversion for a while. Hang around a while. This truly is the HOTTEST auburn blog on the net.

Blogger TarHeelTiger said...

I truly believe he resigned and they didn't know it was a certainty. That doesn't mean that I don't believe they weren't going to make it difficult on him to stay. That last sentence is poorly written.

3 - You're exactly right. This game is a nice diversion.

nice only if the Gators win

thank y'all so much for clueing me in to Gridiron. The Hotties have made my life complete ;-)

Good show Mr. S.

I regret not having made the time to listen more before today. I think I'll be changing my schedule around a bit to listen for the rest of the season.

I think they gave Tommy ultimatums (i.e, coaches fired, # of wins next year, etc) that he just decided he didn't want to deal with. He might have known it was a "no-win" situation and decided 5.1M and no stress was a much better deal. Who knows? I don't think we will ever know the real story. I don't think next year's buy out would have been as high, and he is more marketable this year than he would be if he had another losing season.

Kathy - So glad to see you posting and helping us make the hotties a little more chickalicious!

War Eagle!

Here's what bothers me Tar Heel: Tubs has been very loyal to his other coaches. I find it hard to believe he would make that move without giving them some time to prepare themselves and their families. If that was really Amy Ensminger on the radio the other day (and folks seem to think it was) then the other coaches obviously didn't know this was coming. There is, in my mind, other evidence to support that as well. Just doesn't add up to me. And why the buyout? I don't care who you are, you don't just give away 5 million. And we still have heard nothing from tubs (our new 5 million dollar ambassador for AU).

Sorry, that was a lot.

Walter - No offense. Just crazy circumstances. I hope you keep reading and posting.

War EAgle!

just saw an Auburn fan with a sign that said "all we want for christmas is a new coach."

TG is my choice after knowing more about him as a person actually. last nights game didnt hurt though.

10:56 AM  
Blogger TarHeelTiger said...

3,
I also don't understand how/why Tubs wouldn't have notified all of his assistants first. We may never know unless Tubs decides to tell us. I'm sure it's hard to keep a secret these days with reporters in every crevice of the athletic complex looking for the scoop and the instantaneous spread of news via the net.

10:57 AM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Jack Del Rio's still on the top of my list. Unfortunately, I don't think Carr's tried to get in touch with his people...I'll go with Gill, I guess.

10:57 AM  
Blogger Monica said...

Kathy - You're right. Much easier and great to put a nickname with a real name with a face!

10:58 AM  
Blogger AUTiger3 said...

Guess it really doesn't matter at this point. I'd just really love to hear from Tubs, get his side of the story. Kinda like he just completely evaporated into thin air.

Anyway, all we can do now is hope for a really great hire.

War Eagle folks. I off to play in the dirt with the kids. Life is great. Catch y'all later.
