Radio Appearance Forthcoming

Hey everyone. I will be participating in my weekly segment on SuperSport 930 out of Jackson, Miss., in a bit. That extravaganza will begin around 9:07 a.m. CST.

We will discuss Auburn ... and other stuff.

Be there or be rectangular.

Stupicide is one of my favorite words, along with Nostradumbass.

It is possible that UT didn't want Cutcliffe. I thought it would seem too much like going back to the Fulmer days, although the Fulmer days will a little team discipline might not be a bad thing.

There is at least one Bama board out there floating Malzahn's name for Skip Holtz's old job. Anyone else heard it, or is this just the standard Walmartian knee-jerk whenever a mid-major HC slot comes open?

9:15 AM  
Blogger Jay 'W. not Tate' said...

weagle...that's wishful Bammer thinking.

9:17 AM  
Blogger Norm said...

I don't see Malzahn leaving. In fact, Jet says last night that he has it on good authority that he'll be with AU for three years. Now, that post of his certainly sounds (reads) right familiar with me. Reckon where I might have come across that previously and who posted it? Actually, I know, it's a rhetorical type thing.

9:17 AM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

SFL: You're funny.

Chances of Lebo making the CBI (let alone the NCAAs) = my chances of landing a date with Jenna Fischer.

9:18 AM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

I'm not sure Malzahn WANTS to be a head coach, especially following a successful HC at a mid major...that's a tough act to follow.

The one that posted it is a former UA player from the Bryant/Perkins era.

You know for all the Walmartian drivel around our offense being all high school and gimmicky, they sure want it gone.

I am not really concerned about Gus leaving this year. If we have a great 2010 season, I will be concerned.

9:19 AM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

He should have been fired at least two years ago. There is no reason for Auburn to be this poor on a consistent basis.

All you have to do is look around in your own neighborhood. LSU gets in the tournament. So does MSU. Ole Miss is getting better, has a good coach. UGA made that run through the SECs a few years back. Vanderbilt is better than Auburn every year. Tennessee. Kentucky. Florida. Even South Carolina went out and bought a decent young coach.

It's bad business.

9:20 AM

I predict AU playing in SECCG in '11. After that, maybe Malzahn considers leaving.

I actually think we have a better chance of the SECCG in 2010 than in 2011. We do better in even number of years when most of our games are at home and we graduate 4 offensive linemen after 2010, although the coaches are doing pretty good getting a set of guys to step in for 2011.

9:32 AM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

How is it a team can score 37 in the first half and not even sniff 20 in the second? That blows my mind. Your best defensive look against UT is the 2-3. You go back to Man and they make you look silly. You have a PG who has no idea how to run an offense and you continue to let him play.

That being said CGM is not in line for a HC gig this year. It's flattering and everything that bama wants but he'll be here 2 more years. After this past year they know when they line up against him he will be prepared to win, all we need is some solid d.

9:50 AM

It may not be.

I must admit that I am very interested in seeing the new arena. Maybe it will be a new beginning for AU basketball.

I wish Alabama had done the same thing instead of pouring $30 million into Coleman.

Now that we have added every possible seat to Bryant Denny maybe they will reconsider and build a new one. I have a feeling that a new practice facility for the basketball program is next.

Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

OK, so Mike Anderson is out. What about a DII coach? I really don't follow basketball, but are there any good coaches at that level? They can't be much worse than Lebo. Pearl was a DII coach when UT hired him. Look where he's taken that program.

10:12 AM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

He's taken it to the Boats N Hoes level fo shizzle.

But really, really good ball coach. I mean he's playing with 5 scholarship guys and walk-ons and he still blew us out of the gym.

10:13 AM  
Blogger Jet Jetarsky said...

Luv ...

A correction ... Pearl had been a DII coach previously at Southern Indiana and won a national title. But previous to coming to UT he was coach at Wisconsin-Milwaukee and made it to the NCAA tournament's Sweet 16, having beaten UAT along the way. He had also been an assistant at Iowa and Rutgers, I believe.

10:19 AM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Pearl did not go directly from a D-II school to UT. He was at Wisconsin-Milwaukee, which is D-I.

10:20 AM  
Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

Thanks for the correction, Jet. But, I'm sure you get my point. Why not give a relatively unknown a chance? Like I said, can't be much worse than Lebo, if you do your homework.

Jet beat me to the punch.

Btw, while watching the men's game last night, I couldn't help but think of some coaches I had growing up. Did anybody else ever have one in youth basketball or soccer that you could usually convince to stop running drills and just scrimmage instead? I'm thinking that's what happens at AU practice every day.

10:24 AM  
Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

I must admit, I don't watch a whole lot of basketball until tourney time. You guys are always talking about the men going for the three so often. I watched the game last night and even I was getting mad at all the 3-pt attempts. What is their ratio of 3-pt shots attempted to shots made?

Have the reasons for Cutcliffe stiff arming the Vols already been hashed? I'm assuming it involved bringing his Duke staff. I didn't know until this morning that Ron Middleton was part of it.

10:32 AM  
Blogger Jet Jetarsky said...

We shoot 3s because we have no player over 6-foot-6 that can tie his own shoes or feed himself.

If Lebo would have just kept paying Marco Killingsworth like someone else did, then none of this would have happened.

Excuse me, I meant "playing."

Not really. OK, maybe. Or maybe not.

Here's the problem in Knoxville.

Herb Schnidely, aide to the assistant to the assistant athletic director for financial affairs, raised his hand in a meeting and said, "Excuse me, aren't all these assistant coaches Lane didn't take with him on 3-year contracts, including Kippy, who just started here a month ago?"

Then everyone realizes it would take another $5 million -- give or take $2 million -- to get rid of those guys.

Now, staff composition is an issue.

10:37 AM

It's all coming out now in Knoxville.

Apparently Janzen Jackson was involved in the attempted robbery after all...

Bet they lay the cover up at Kiffin's feet...

Uh oh

10:38 AM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

UT's best bet is to hire Kippy and ride it out. No coach worth the money is coming into a situation with half a staff in place.

10:38 AM

that is a very $$$$$$$$$$$$$ problem

So where is Jackson in that video? I didn't see him walk up and tell anyone they had to get going or whatever his story was?

UT needs to follow some of the wisest words ever to come out of an Auburn coaches mouth.

"Live to punt"!

Time to pay off the rest of the staff and start from scratch. This is one of the dangers of firing and hiring. You have to be willing to accept the consequences.

11:22 AM

And I am simply amazed by how badly Kiffikin has disrespected Tennesse. Who would imagine a coach willing to leave UT to go to a school headed for probation? This is simply incredible.

In his 4 years prior to coming to Auburn, he was averaging almost 22 wins per season.

The point? Someone would have given him a chance in the SEC or ACC.

Once Chainsaw Ed messed up with Mike Anderson, we were the ones that took the chance on Lebo. It didn't work.

But someone would have taken the chance. I still believe there are places where he can be successful because of the types of scholar-athletes he can recruit to those schools. At Auburn, he's a no-go.

Or a gotta-go.

Jay G., I actually like Connan much more than Leno. I also thought he was beating Letterman in the ratings. NBC has just screwed themselves. There are other things that could have done. Insisting on putting Leno back in the late night lineup is a bad idea. Did you hear about Leno threatening to go to Fox? They have just created a huge mess.

Steve the thing about it is that they EXPECTED him to not do well in the ratings. They are making money because they didn't have to spend a bunch for a drama or something like that. The problem was that the affiliates that depend on that lead in to their 10/11PM news started griping loudly.

12:06 PM  
Blogger missinit said...

According to ESPN, at least I think that was where I heard them say that the UT job was one of the top coaching jobs in America.

Why then do you think it is a job it seems nobody wants??

What do we not know? I honestly have not taken the time to read why those that have turned it down did so. What have been their reasons?

12:06 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Conan has lost 50% of Leno's audience and is getting beat by Letterman... so apples to apples, it looks like Leno is a much better ratings draw than Conan. But Leno is getting killed at his time slot, which has led to a loss of 25% of the local news affiliates audience, which has also led to some of Conan's losses.

Basically, Leno has to be moved and dramas/reality shows put back into prime time. Now you have Leno and O'Brien sitting around. NBC brass picked Leno because he was doing great when he went off the air and Conan is still unproven.

Leno threatening to leave NBC is just PR because he looks like the bad guy right now. No way Leno ever seriously considered going anywhere else.

Conan is a million times better than Leno, but obviously someone out there is a Leno fan. Basically, NBC management sucks. Dumb to promise Conan a show 5 years in advance when Leno showed no signs of slowing down, dumb to put Leno in prime time, and dumb to put Leno back on the Tonight show for what is a short term solution. Dumb dumb dumb.

Cutcliffe couldn't bring his entire staff form Duke.

Muschamp clearly has been given a firm date on when he can expect to be the head coach there ... and he's fine with that. Texas is a better job.

Rumor has it in TN that Muschamp would have been the coach but Hamilton wanted a clause in the contract that he could not leave for UGA or Texas.

I don't buy this coach in waiting thing with Muschamp. I think Muschamp is waiting on UGA to can Richt.

I just want everyone to leave Auburn and their class alone. With all the upheaval in the SEC you could make the argument Auburn is the 2nd or 3rd most stable program behind Bama and Florida (?) right now.

I still don't understand why Jay is being painted as the bad guy. Conan used his leverage to force him out of the Tonight Show. Leno didn't want to leave. So now I am supposed to feel sorry for poor millionaire Conan because mean millionaire Leno is taking his place?

The bad guys are the execs. But it is obvious the other late nighters hate Leno. This is probably a combination of jealousy from being beaten by him in the ratings (and fear he will beat them again) and anger because from an intelligent comedic viewer's perspective, Jay Leno is stale and unfunny.

[in hangdog tone] Hey Derek, it's Mike Hamilton. Are you interested in our HC position?
[visibly perks up] You are? Really? No kidding? Man, that's great.

Sorry, Eddie, I didn't know that about Lebo, but like I said, I don't really follow basketball. Obviously, they didn't do their homework.

You can have Letterman, Leno, Connan, Kimmel...just give me Craig Ferguson.

12:21 PM

Luv- I was just playing. At this point, I think Trunk Monkey could coach better than Lebo.

I like them all except for Leno.

1. Letterman
1a. Conan (these two have switched back and forth over the years
3. Craig Ferguson
4. Jimmy Kimmel (though I don't know I have ever watched a show of his through. Just highlights online from time to time)

Dooley....I bet they put a no-out clause to UGA in it, of course, Muschamp is the one heading there if Texas doesn't come thru first.

I have read where the Tennessee head coaching position is one of the ten most coveted jobs in college football. I guess they have the cash, but I can't believe they would be in the top 10.

12:38 PM  
Blogger michael said...

E-Bro - 857 would be Dr. Lou Holtz

12:39 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Steve- IF they were in the Top 10, they would have a coach by now. Mike Hamilton needs to be fired ASAP if I was a UT fan. His "search" process is a joke and let's face it, he hired Kiffin. That kills any and all good will of the Pearl hire.

12:40 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

The Tennessean seems to think Derek Dooley is their Huckleberry.

12:41 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

I agree Eddie, and Tennessee doesn't exactly have the best recruiting base. They have to recruit nationally. They don't have enough local talent with the competition.

12:43 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

What's the deal with everyone wanting to coach UGA. Aren't UGA & UT the same job?

12:43 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Did someone suggest looking at Div-II for a bball coach? There's 300-something Div I programs, for pete's sake. Why stop at Div-II, why not go throu Div-III or NAIA? Heck, there's a good high school coach somewhere (just don't recruit his players for two years, that's now a no-no).

12:44 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

ehyou- UGA is a much better job. If a Nick Saban type coach came there, watch out. It has great talent in the state and could be a force similar to LSU IMO. Richt is good, but far from great.

Dooley maybe the Head guy, but its still mixed from what I read on whether that was fact or not.

12:45 PM

That earlier video about locking monkeys in trunks reminded me of this old sketch by "The State"

UGA= better fans, local recruiting base, and not-trashy stadium. Besides that (of which local-recruiting base is the only valid point), they're the same, yes.

12:46 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Damon Evans is the guy. Dooley just hangs around and eats tacos, now. The first couple of years after he retired, that was not the case, but it is now.

Can you imagine the culture shock of going from having genuinely good, disciplined kids at Air Force to having people like Bryce Brown and Nu'Keese Richardson (RIP)? Even if you've been in an environment like that before, it's gotta suck to come back to that. I wouldn't want to take the job either is I was Calhoun.

Its a gamble for UT hiring Dooley. But if they got it right, they could have him for decades to come.

I personally believe he will turn out to be a good hire. A young up and comer. Can't argue his lineage.

1:10 PM  
Blogger Comm'r of Side Girls said...

Eddie: Thanks for sending the Trunkmonkey clip. That's awesome!!

1:11 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

I think Dooley was a pretty good hire. Skip Holtz would have likely been a better choice, but Tennessee ended up pretty well off, if they got Dooley.

1:11 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Alluring? Interesting choice of language there, Comm'r.

1:12 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

UT Rivals site (Volquest) is reporting that as of 1:30pm all signs are that Dooley is the man, but that he has not officially been extended an offer. This is just sloppy work by UT. When it gets to this point, you better have everything lined up. If Dooley backs out or is not the man, that is not good. The UT fans on that site are in melt down mode.

As for me, I think Dooley will make a fine coach. I think he will do well. Honestly the best of what they have looked at since Boom.

1:12 PM

Ironically, I would take Dooley or Holtz over Kiffikin any day.

Is Derek Dooley a done deal? I don't believe anything involving "sources" and the Tennessee coaching job, anymore...or any coaching job for that matter (unless it come from wtc's mom).

PF- Nope, at least what i'm seeing. Close, but not official.

1:16 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

I wouldn't call Dooley a done deal, although that Tennessean article made it seem that way. So far there have been 3 or 4 done deals. Until the university makes an announcement, nothing is certain.
