From the "Seriously?" Department

Hey everyone. From the Dothan Eagle comes this hilarious interesting story about Tommy Tuberville.

The new Texas Tech coach is interviewing Troy offensive coordinator Neal Brown for the Red Raiders' OC position. Why do I find this funny?

Brown is the closest thing one can get to Tony Franklin without hiring Tony Franklin. Brown worked for Franklin at Troy and has described himself as a Franklin protege.

It's the circle of life.

Now THAT is funny! Do you think Tubs will let him run his offense?

this tells me that the issue was NOT CTF but rather the other assist. coaches.

By the way, to say this means it was the assistants, not Franklin doesn't seem right. I do think there is plenty of blame to be shared and it is pointless to attempt to point to one person. If you point to one person, it has to be Tuberville. He created the situation in the first place.

WSteveFCk,

after reading my Chizik post, do you get why the whole coach gambling on the team thing got Rose tossed?

Hint: Overusing pitchers.


I still think Rose needs to be in the Hall as a player, though.

Fulmer seems like he has all of the downsides of Tubs, but with no upside.

As someone who almost kinda sorta pulls for USF, I hope its not Fulmer.

Del Rio sounds right for USC, some "source from inside of the program" said they were looking at NFL coaches.

Other than Gibbs, there isn't really another DC Tuberville had who would be a possibility, other than the guy he brought from Ole Miss. What was the name? Levill? Something like that.

Fulmer had many more down sides. He seems to loose control of the Tennessee program and it seemed like they had an entire section of the Knoxville police department dedicated to UT players. For me, Fulmer would be a no go.

Another reason you can't have ANY gambling in sports:

When losses mount and can't be repaid ...the Bookie's direct relationship with the gambler opens the door for unethical/illegal repayment schemes.

5:25 PM

It is strange, Hoopie. Ironically, I am sure Tuberville told Texas Tech what he intended to do, although he may not have mentioned Troy specifically.

I had been assuming that wherever Tuberville went he would go with some kind of spread offense, but I don't get talking with Brown. It is just strange. I didn't really think Franklin's version of the spread is what Tuberville invisioned.

5:25 PM

I think who Tubs hires on the Defensive side of the ball isn't overly important, he was successful on that side of the ball no matter who was calling the plays. Who he hires on the offensive side will determine how successful his stay is at TT I think. I don't expect to see any familiar faces on his offensive staff.

7:30 PM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

Just spent some time on RedRaiders.com. Those folks are furious! They've got 60,000 folks signed up on a facebook page protesting the Leach firing.

Evidently Tubs today backed off of his pledge to not change the Air Raidn offense, is going to add a few wrinkles, is interviewing for new OCs and DCs, will only hire assistants approved by the Cordinators and only then will he evaluate the existing assistants.

YIKES!!!

DL, I do think CTT wanted to go to the spread anyway, but there are many different versions of the spread. Why to go with the Franklin System kind of mystifies me.

By the way Jay, your buddy Moon was criticized a bit for interviewing Franklin long after barbequegate was over, but now might be a good chance for you to interview him. You could get his impressions of both Brown and Tuberville. I would love to hear the discussions. Did Tuberville call Franklin to see if there where someone he would recommend? This just seems too wacky to be true.

While i'm not going to become a huge Red Raider fan or anything, I would like to see some games where Tuberville is coaching...however, i'm not going to buy some ESPN expanded coverage package just to see Texas Tech play when there's no other good games on. Does anyone know of a way to transfer ESPN 360 to a television?

Ohh, in a related note...it would be rather cool for Tuberville to pull one of his big game moments and knock off Oklahoma his first year. He also gets to coach against Paul Rhoads in October.

Don't get me wrong, I'm a known CTT supporter and wish him well. It just seems that after all the extraneous controversy that was manufactured and thrown at him while at AU, he would have gone somewhere without all that baggage.

I guess Chizik has provided a pretty good blueprint for handling such a situation and Tubs got a good view of that.

Coleman definitely has been a "soft" guy for a while now.

Reed, until now, seemed solid. That's if he takes the LSU trip.

Air Raid started before Kentucky.

I was there when Mumme came and he already was doing this stuff somewhere else. Valdosta, I think?

Blogger FSJ said...

Valdosta is correct Jay.

Air raids actually started in World War I, the first war in which airplanes were used as weapons.

As I recall, World War I was fought in Europe, not Kentucky or south Georgia.

The white zone is reserved for the loading and unloading of passengers.

Actually, a long time ago in a galaxy far far away, a ton of air raids happened all the time. And they used lasers.

The red zone has always been for loading and unloading of passengers. There's never stopping in a white zone.

At the risk of not reading all these comments,

If I hired Franklin, and got myself "fired" with $5M buyout, why not hire a Franklin protege and try hitting that lottery again?

SIAP, Broadway Joe's daughter arrested in Florida for drug and alcohol possession.

this will be like crossing the streams in ghostbusters.

i think he will find recruiting harder now that the offensive "name brand" that drew recruits to lubbock is gone. guys didn't go there to play d. i'd love to see him succeed and wreck havoc in the big 12. i just thing the deck is too stacked against him and it took a gimmick like leach to get kids to come.

Wow, Jet was absolutely on fire today. My nominee for headline quote:

Ok, this would be sorta like the ending of Back to the Future ... except this time, Hugh Nall is washing Tony Franklin's car.

Sheer genius. Kudos, Jetster!

Read about this earlier today...oh my goodness...really Tubs?

9:30 PM  
Blogger FearlessFreep said...

BTW, I can totally see Tubs pulling an upset of the Longhorns in week 3.

Then getting blown out by Iowa State two weeks later.

is he going to be on the losing end of 3-2 vs. isu?

Blogger BinOBA said...

I can see him getting worked if he doesn't have it together. Maybe he can get some d goin over there though. We'll see, it won't be rank and file like with the bbq boys, he's gonna have to work a little more.

Off topic:

Anyone ever watch 'Men of a Certain Age'?

Tonights episode is very funny. Come on TNT.

I can't really see CTT making Tuberville any more than an Ole Miss or Arkansas. Texas and A&M will dominate that state. Texas Tech will likely have solid teams, but I doubt they will reach as high as Leach did. It takes a mad genuis to do that. Unless Tuberville hires one, it will be tough.

Believe me, I know about Air Raids.

Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!

And it's not over now. It's not over until we say it is.

Mike Tyson is the host or RAW and apparently will be involved in a match. They are referring to him as the baddest man on the planet. Someone is about 20 years behind the times.

OK, we're gettin' close, and I imagine Norm has checked out.

May I recommend SaZa's, or whatever it's called, for dinner?

Open kitchen, good menu, solid food. Good time.

After reading the Dothan Eagle article: Is it just me or does Troy take their coaches' mug shots right after the keg party?

I think that's entirely possible.
