    Holy! Cats!
    Leach is reportedly flying to the plains for an interview, and Auburn asked Arkansas for permission to interview Bobby Petrino.

    Well, there goes my respect for Auburn.

    If Auburn gets Petrino, going to ESPN the next day and seeing Pat Forde has written a column about it...would be like Christmas come early.

    They name a field after Pat Dye (99-39) after he gets the school on probation.
    They ran Bowden out of town (47-17).
    And now they dump Tuberville (85-40).

    While I think Leach and Petrino would be good pickups, they've never lead a team to an undefeated season and a no. 2 ranking.

    I'm pretty sure Tuberville will be coaching somewhere next year. Perhaps at a school that still has a coach at this point.

    I vote for keeping Southern incest alive by sending Tuberville to Arkansas and Fulmer to Starkville.

    Went out the window when Tubby fired Franklin...

    And if this doesn't smack of meddling Bobby Lowder...

    Umm, what did you fix?
    And Arkansas has a huge boner for native son Tubby.
    Some would be in favor of dumping Petrino, if that meant getting Tommy T.

    Sounds like Texas Tech is going to have to get on the stick, pretty fast if it wants to keep Leach. I think he jumps to at least $2.4 mill - either in Washington or Auburn. Seems pretty clear Auburn needs to do something to separate itself from the pack in the SEC. The Tech offense might be it.
    Petrino was already making more than Tuberville. I don't think he's worth any more than that until he wins the West division.
