The not-so-fine line between crazy and desperate

If you’re a fan of the Auburn program, there’s a quote from Tommy Tuberville that ought to have you rolling on the floor.  Speaking of his interest in being considered as the successor to Mike Leach at Texas Tech, here’s what TT had to say about the offense he’d run as head coach:

.. Tuberville said if he got the chance to coach at Tech, there would be no overhaul of the Mike Leach offense.

“It’d be crazy to change it,” he said. “That’s a trademark of Texas Tech now. It’s helped put them on the map. It’s helped in recruiting, I’ve noticed. Mike’s had a good chance of getting quarterbacks and receivers to come there – in the past, (Tech) wasn’t able to get them. We’ve run a lot of the spread over the years, and I’m very familiar with it.”

Some revisionist history, plus Jimmy Sexton – what more could you ask for if you’re the Texas Tech AD?

    Yeah, Tubs has run the spread, sure. Run n’ shoot, wing T, pistol. Hell we’ll run anything you want.

    TT the coach at TT the university. Great alliteration.


  3. We’ve [been ] run [out of town, but still made] a lot of [buyout money utilizing] the spread over the years, and I’m very familiar with it [because Tony Franklin explained it to me once over lunch].

    As they say on the message boards, fixed.

    football scooper says, “Texas Tech: Tommy Tuberville is interviewing. We hear Texas Tech officials picked up Tubs at the airport today.”

    Tommy will regale them with tales of the aerial and spread attack machines he had at Auburn with Ronnie Brown and Cadillac Williams and how well he gets along with those in administration who meddle with him which is just about as well as the last coach they had. Looks like a match made in heaven. This has all the potential of working just as well as Rich Rodriguez and Michigan.
