Things we said today.

Some more good quotes from SEC Media Days:

  • BS from Tuberville. It sounds like Tubby does most of his recruiting at Boy Scout meetings and church choir practices these days:  “We don’t just talk about athletic ability. We go out and recruit character and attitude and work ethic, and if you’ve got those three, then athletic ability is a bonus.” Sure, coach.
  • Tuberville ♥ the spread. This offense is the future of high school football.” WTF?  Sounds like the beginning of a bee-yoo-tee-ful friendship.
  • Hip to be square. I don’t know what’s more awkward – Bobby Petrino trotting out street lingo, or the Northwest Arkansas Times trying to sound impressed that Petrino is trotting out street lingo.  Maybe the paper isn’t familiar with all of the usages.
  • I like Mike. Jasper Brinkley’s choice of words was a bit unfortunate.  Speaking of himself getting back into action, he used an interesting metaphor: “It’s going to be like having a dog on a chain and letting him go into a dogfight or something like that,” Brinkley said. Not that he does that, of course.  He’s just heard about it from others.  Or something like that.
  • More BS from Tuberville. He’d like you to believe that he and Petrino are just two regular guys around each other these days.  “Bobby and I have talked many times since then. Since he’s been head coach (at Arkansas), we’ve talked several times at meetings.” Coach, telling a guy “I think you dropped this” isn’t really talking.
  • Best of all, no ads on the jerseys. “You know, other than the NFL, there’s no better football league in the world, because we’re pretty much the only ones that play it now that they’ve disbanded NFL Europe,” Kentucky coach Rich Brooks said.

  1. If you looked up the word “platitude” in the dictionary, I suspect you might see Mr. Tuberville’s picture next to the definition.


  2. Character is critically important at Auburn. Just ask Robert Dunn.

    Never mind the ankle bracelet. That’s just jewelry.

    Robert Dunn has not been in any legal trouble while at Auburn. Tubs took a chance on R. Dunn and R. Dunn has been an example of overcoming odds at this point considering his high school issues. Maybe Tubs deserves a little credit as he does not have the same issues over and over again. Kudos to Tommy Tuberville and his accomplishments as Auburn is a much harder job than the state school of GA!

    Just curious, but how is TT’s job harder than CMR’s?

    And was TT coaching “character, attitude, & work ethic” when he taught them chop-blocking 101?

    The only time I said “bush-league” during a football game last year and meant it was when Tubby’s guys went to take away Dorsey’s career. I guess the work ethic wasn’t all the way there or Dorsey wouldn’t be walking today.
