Tuberville speaks, 1/28

WEDNESDAY NIGHT
Post No. 1,011

Hey everyone. I talked with Tommy Tuberville earlier about his upcoming gig as an ESPN analyst for Signing Day coverage. Ought to be a hoot.

Here's what he told me on the record.

On what he'll be doing with ESPN: ``I'll just be talking about how recruiting and Signing Day work from a coach's perspective," Tuberville said. ``I won't be talking about Auburn. I won't be talking about any schools."

On what he'll be doing with his life: ``I'm too young to retire," Tuberville said. ``I can't play golf for the rest of my life. I've got to do something and earn a living. Coaching is what I know."

I thought he was staying with Auburn as an advisor. Did this change?

He keeps on saying that he wants to coach again, but I really see him doing the ESPN thing. CTT would be so much better than Lou Holtz.

I expect to see Tuberville show up as the head coach at a big name school within the next couple of years. Good luck to him. He is a good Auburn man.

Jay G., since he is gone from AU now . . .have you ever seen ANY evidence that CTT ever actually PLAYED football? I have never seen a photo of him in a football uniform. Ever. Do you think there is any possibility he is a George O'Leary type? Has anyone looked into his past at Southern Arkansas?

Mon - I guess I do get ya there. I have TONS in the bank and yet each day I feel the need to drag myself out of the cave and play a round of golf, eat sushi, chill at the club then surf HABOTN. Good call :)

6:10 PM  
Blogger depressedAUfan said...

No argument on that Monica. He just said he had to make a living and for most people that means having to work to pay bills. I don't think he has to worry about that, unlike a lot of people these days.

I totally understand what you mean Depressed and I personally feel that I've produced enough, but I'm way older than y'all. :-)
So, if someone wants to be my Sugar Daddy (like Auburn is to Tubs) then I'm good with that. However, eventually, I'd have to do something meaningfulish or I'd become even nuttier than I am and that's not a pretty visual.

what would be cool (never gonna happen) would be for him to take over a dept. of defense high school program in europe and help coach some of those kids up. fair amount of talent, not much resources, over there. plus, you get to live in england or germany for a time.

Maybe the miami fans will turn him off to their program and he'll look elsewhere.

I'm going back in my head and thinking about it.

What was the reasoning when Anderson was on fire at UAB?

Scottie B- if I could get there in time I'd be happy to fold towels. I'd fold em for a week to avoid some tv shows.

it's not a bad gig THT. it's a free gym membership at a pretty sweet place and a little extra money to feed my memorabilia obsession. 6-10:15 every wednesday.

i'm hoping Wes gets it back on track in the fall. Duval (All-American) had a slump as did Vaughn (All time AU scoring leader) and they turned out ok.

The Vaughn point alone puts things into perspective...kicking is vital to winning games. I think the coaches that we have are not only good recruiters, but they are good motivators as well.

Peter, thanks

. I always thought the name was hillarious and wished I had a time machine to go back and steal it from the band. They're actually really good too. They used to go by "Choking Victim." There's a side project under "Morning Glory" too. All really left wing and "anti-wto" stuff, but i like that some times.

I don't get how the whole world doesn't love Morrissey. I mean, yes, I do have a pet cat, but Morrissey is still awesome. All these emo bands worship him, but i really don't see the influence. At least he had a sense of humor about being a sexually ambiguous sour puss.

That disturbance was probably my id. My ego trys to calm it with being happy that being a Vet and getting a new GI bill is good enough, but my id keeps saying Auburn should participate in the "Yellow Ribbon Program" or the state of Alabama should wave out of state tuition costs for Vets

Dear old id is kind of miffed at having to go to Southern Union for a year to be able to claim residency. Ego counters with that if only we would of been able to do something with a ball we'd be golden and that pooping your pants and doing cartwheels in a war zone isn't that impressive.

Pete machine, I would if I could, but I know nothing of which you speak of. I'm eternally terrified of their being time machines. That being so, I'm sure if my 16 year old self came to the present and found my 23 year old self watching MTV, he'd probably break my cigarettes.

That's just not something i can live with.

It all boils down to needing cigarettes to be glamourous and a low sperm count. I never want to have kids. At that, I never want to have a daughter.

It's all about Bukowski, dude. I mean, his books are boring and make me feel like I could write about my life and have some kind of counter-culture following one day, but.....

"A detailed depiction of a certain taboo male fantasy: the uninhibited bachelor, slobby, anti-social, and utterly free."

Yeah, quotes like that make the seconds seem like hours until I get to unleash my enlightenment (by way of being a weirdo) on Auburn University.

speaking of things that creep me out, does anyone every get the impression that the Uni Watch Blog is simply a fashion blog hiding under a sports umbrella. I mean, I truely appreciate the vast knowledge of sports history that it conveys, but sometimes I can picture Perez Hilton as the webmaster there. Perez Hilton images creep me out.

I lived on MTV when I was in about the sixth grade and they were playing Nirvana and Pearl Jam videos. It has been a very very very very long time since I have watched anything else on it.

It seems like half of the cable channel's niches have been abandoned, and now they just do reality tv aimed at a certain audience (TLC, MTV, VH1, Spice Channel, etc)

Mikal. Cable TV will never recover from the writer's strike. It forced them into reality TV, which rhe suits realized was very cheap. Thank G-d for FX for continuing to put out quality original series.

Blogger LeftoverCrack said...

Yeah, I think VH1 is the funniest. Like years ago the most "urban" they got was showing a Sade video. Now they're the channel that broadcats the "Hip-Hop Hall Of Fame" thing or whatever.

In all honesty, I don't understand why Danzig isn't in charge of all these channels.

If I had my say, they'd just play "Mother" and "Brain Eaters" 20 hours a day.

The other 4 would be dedicated to the hilarious and mysogonistic things I say to my girlfriend.

I'm starting to get p o'd about gas prices again, and they're not even above 2 bucks a gallon yet. Jay G, petroleum expert, what's the latest on this front? Will we see $3 by summer, or will it hover around 2 for a while?

11:40 PM

Arrested Development as in the band or the tv show? Either way you can't go wrong.

If it's the tv show, check out.....

I will warn, it's a little vulgar. Outside of that, I don't think I've ever laughed harder.

Good morning Hotties. Just caught up reading the posts from where I left off last night.

Leftover - I thank you for your service and everyone else that wore a uniform. You might be starting to grow on me a bit. The prostate gland bit really threw me for awhile.

Anyway, let's have some good news and good rumor-mongering today. Now let's do it to them before they do it to us.

Good Morning All.

Let's see if we can keep the commit train rolling!!!

The hottest gland in all the land, let us all prostrate ourselves before the Prostate.

However, may I say all the discussion of prostates and cracks to this mid-40something is quite disconcerting.

Carpe Recruitem!

Good Morning folks, I'll be out and about, I can't wait to hear Jay's 'crutin' wrap this weekend.

I'm feeling like we'll be getting some good news.

Good Morning, Hotties. I'm with Jime Rome and depressedAUfan. He has more money than most of us will ever see in our lifetimes put together. If he feels like he has to do something, why not volunteer? There are plenty of reputable charitable organizations out there where he could make a difference.

BTW all - I'm well aware that the link I included in the above post had already been posted twice. That's precisely why I did it. Just to rag on dudes.

One thing I can say about this blog ... it has certainly enlarged ... kinda like my prostate.

G'mornin folks!
Carpe Recruitem! I like it, Jet!

I just saw an ESPN rss feed scroll across reporting that Dennis Felton has been fired from UGA.

I wonder when AU is going to get in on this bball coach firing party the SECOND is having? Better act fast if we want a shot at Anthony Grant - he's probably the next coach at UGA.

That should read SEC and not SECOND. Dadgum blackberry trying to spell for me!

Blogger michael said...

So you guys still talking about prostates?

9:14 AM  
Blogger Jet D. Habotn-Bear said...

At my age, Michael, it is the source of a steady stream of conversation. Or sometimes not so steady.

9:16 AM  
Blogger gatiger said...

Jet - we're the same age, sometimes it's difficult to get it started or starts when you'd really rather be sleeping too.

It is definitely a growing problem in today's society that is always on the go.

I don't know if you guys realize this, but a lot of what yall are saying can be double entendres for the condition of the aging prostate!

Jay,

Next time you see or speak to Tuberville, please pass on a big "War Eagle" and "Thanks" from the HABOTN crew. There's a lot of respect for the man here, and I for one would like that message delivered to him.

'preciate it.

I can see it now. "Hey Tommy, Sullivan013 says 'War Eagle' to you."

Tommy's eyes tear up and says to Jay, "Jay, you have no idea how much that means to me."
