Rolling along on a Friday

Hey everyone. I see that you're all very excited about the possibility of Houston Nutt being Auburn's next head coach.

Is it possible? Yes.

I had a few knowledgeable people relay that name yesterday. The Advertiser forbids me from using unnamed sources, so that really limits what I can report about stuff like that. I'm working to get in touch with Nutt's People and get an official, on-the-record comment about his situation.

It's going to be a murky period here for a while. It's difficult to distill reliable information from fake stuff -- it often sounds the same -- and getting the legit stuff on the record adds a little more complexity.

We like complexity here at the HABOTN. It's all about love of the game ...

Nutt doesn't make sense to me, but that's what people I trust have said.

These people I'm talking about are not decision-makers. They're just connected and interested.

Off the subject, and directed at those who may work at home and can flip on CourtTV:

I'm scrolling through the channels and come across the sentencing of OJ Simpson. Nearly falling off the sofa laughing while trying to scarf down lunch.

His first lawyer rambled on about how Abe Lincoln let the confederates go home at the end of the war, as if the judge were the victor (rather than a neutral arbiter) in the matter.

His second lawyer spent a good five minutes counting the ways in which it had been an honor to argue in the judge's court.

OJ will be coming up next, as far as I can tell. Can't wait to see how far he swallows his foot since his counsel got busy eating their own feet off.

Good stuff.

This is crazy world we lived in. Last week this time, I think Tubs is back for sure and i'm all right with that. I also believe we have a chance to be close in the 4th quarter against bama. Saturday Night, I'm pissed about the results and not happy about the preparedness of the team. At this time, I think change is needed becasue we are obviously falling way behind and getting further away, but I still felt Tubs would be back. Wednesday- Tubs is gone and i'm sad to miss Tubs, but excited about the future. Fast forward to now- The thought of Houston Nutt makes me vomit in my mouth. My brother will be all over me, saying be careful what you wish for why he has always wanted Tubs back, never wavering.

I don't want my brother telling me I told you so.

If things take a downward turn, I won't say "told you so" but something along the lines of "happy now?". But again, I really hope I don't get that chance.

I've been lurking and reading this blog off and on all season, but this is the first time I've got to post some...

Houston Nutt??? Are you kidding me. Tubbs would do a better job than Houston Nutt. I think Nutt is doing so well at Ole Miss because Orgeron left some pretty decent talent, and Nutt is a semi decent coach. Does anyone wonder what's going to happen in four years when all the players are Houston Nutt's recruits, yeah just look at Arkansas the last two years. I mean there are no words to describe my disappointment in Auburn if they hire HOUSTON Freakin' NUTT!

Also I think Petrino would be a bad hire as well, I'm not going to argue about his coaching abilities, but because of pervious incidents (jetgate, leaving the falcons like he did) there is going to be a lot of bad blood between him and the Auburn fans.

I've had absolutely no contact with Auburn. They'll have to carry me out of here in a pine box if they want me to leave Ole Miss." He also said Auburn has not talked with his agent Jimmy Sexton.

Butch Davis is not a good hire. He sounds like the real deal, but he is easily dissapoints. I live near Chapel Hill, follow UNC closely, and have been to games.

I didn't say Davis was a "bad" coach, just not a good hire. He's an average coach with very conservative defensive tendancies. Prevent is his favorite scheme, and it cost him at least three games this season alone. Last year he blew the USC (east-coast variety) with a boneheaded call when he had the OBC beat. He's just not good under pressure.

So much for my "scientologists won't be hired in the south" theory. We've come a long way, folks

1:07 PM  
Blogger michael said...

I think the Nutt thing is just a ploy to get us to accept Mike Leach better. It lets us know how bad it could have been.

1:07 PM  
Blogger Kristina said...

Michael, can you find me a valid source that says he is a scientologist?

Blogger Stalkerblues said...

Surely my alarm will sound soon and I will awake from this terrible dream that Houston Nutt and Jimbo Fisher may be our top HC candidates.

1:10 PM

Scratch Houston Nutt according to JOX.

I've changed my mind. I would be happy if it was Spurrier.

1:12 PM  
Blogger Cobra_Commander said...

Spurrier?

Please no.

1:14 PM  
Blogger Kristina said...

Monica as much as I love you, we are diametrically opposed on coaching choices. ;-)

is there a reputable source for petersen to MSU?

I didn't say he was my choice. I said I could be happy.


Kristina - Who is on your wish list?

i'm sick of people reporting that coaches have turned down the job...have we even heard that the job has been offerred to anyone yet?

Spurrier= No fire in the belly.

Once again - If you're going to call Jacobs a liar on the air shouldn't you offer some support for that? Even if it's your "opinion" isn't there at least a very LOW bar of accountability considering the public forum you enjoy?

1:21 PM  
Blogger Kristina said...

Monica, dont you know I am one of those people who just knocks down everyone's suggestions but makes none of her own...lol

Petersen who according to a MSU (as in Michigain State?!?!) site, he is going to Miss State. I dont know, really. Maybe Johnson?

Why not try to go after Butch Davis? Or Dickerson from ASU?

Mike Leach? Houston Nutt?

Our AD/Boosters have lost it.

i'm begining to think we are screwed...just a thought

1:25 PM

Kristina - Well, then we're not diametrically opposed on coaching choices as Paul Johnson as been at the top of my list.

jhag,

Y'all were screwed the day I joined this blog..

I'm shocked Preston Gothard picked Alabama...of course he is a genius this year.

Who in their right f-cking mind would be happy about Nutt? I don't think that's as real as the hacking Scarbinsky's of the world "think".

1:27 PM  
Blogger AUBigCat said...

Dang Petersen is a scientologist? Yea I doubt that would fly in AL. MSU got a great coach if that's true.

Chris FSU has taken a few AU commits over the years. Last year it was 6'3" WR Jarmon Fortson, 4/5* player. I dont know if that was Jimbo's doing or not.

1:28 PM

Crudup, Nutt has to be a red herring...

1:28 PM  
Anonymous crudup said...

James in B'ham:

Nutt is not the second coming of Tubs. Tubs has so much more class than Nutt. If we're going to swap 8 win coaches give me Tubs and I'll understand mediocrity.

1:29 PM  
Blogger Kristina said...

Can ANYONE give me a valid source that says Petersen is a scientologist?

1:29 PM  
Blogger FSJ-Master of My Domain said...

What is Chris Petersen thinking if he is going to take the Miss. State job?

Has anybody actually been to Starkvegas?

Oh my.....

FSJ- a friend of mine is a MSU alum. He told me peterson and the new ad at MSU are good friend. TFWIW.

Jay, you should post the links to the feed when you go on air. We're challenged by simply too much information to take in.

FSJ, all I know is Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes in Bulldog gear with cowbells is going to be a sight to see.

Oh yeah and I think they will pay 2.5-3mil. Id live in Nome for that.

Crudup:

I do not want Paul Johnson at Auburn....Another Pat Dye, IMO

After that, obviously I don't want Petrino or Davis.

Spurrier does not scare me. Neither does Houston Nutt even though they are good coaches. Saban would eat them alive in recruiting.

Leach doesn't fit at Auburn.

Don't know much about Kelly.

does anybody else think the guys on mont. sports talk are goobs?

Brian Kelly? Now there's a name with no name recognition.

My brother's manager's brother's uncle's best fried said Darth Visor had his head tilted downa and left, right eye brow raises, and mouth tightened in the form of a surgical tear. That, of course, indicates interest in the Auburn job.
