Good luck coach Tuberville...

I have to say its kind of strange reading about Tuberville and Texas Tech and him refering to them as "us".After a decade of him refering to Auburn as "us"and as many great things he did at Auburn I know I for one will still pull for the old coach and hope he has great luck in Lubbock.All of the tension between Tuberville and the Auburn power brokers made a great program grind to a halt.Alot of fans are trying to put it all on Tubs but the blame went all ways and it was probably a good time to part ways.To me the real winners of this drama in Auburn is the Red Raider faithful,they just got one of the best head coaches in the SEC for the last decade and they have got him when he is hungry and ready to coach.Before he got burnt out with the AU big-3 things were great under Tubs,he did alot more than dominate Alabama in his tenure.Winning 85 games in his ten years,winning five of eight bowl games and competing for the SEC west every year were the norm under Tuberville and I expect him to have the same sucsess at TTU.

coach Chizik proving them wrong...

I have to say after his hire Gene Chizik has impressed me and alot of Auburn fans by coming in to a SEC powerhouse where he was not a popular hire,getting to work and putting a quality team on the field.I know I was a sckeptic of the hire,he was one of Auburns best defensive coordinators and was looking like a potential superstar head man after his stints at Auburn and Texas,but he almost commited career suicide going to ISU.He is sure showing that his coaching style works where there is talent,and his staff is bringing in tons of young talent to make this team work.Chizik has surronded himself with an all-star coaching staff that is very excited to be at Auburn,they all are top notch recruiters and great position coaches which will lead to wins for the tigers.Gus Malzhan is at the top of that class as he is an offensive genuis and Auburn must hold on to this future head coach as long as possible.All in all Chizik and his staff get an a+ from me so far,there is alot of football left but this AU team is playing like Auburn teams are supossed to and that is major...
