Pot meets kettle.

Shot.

Chaser.

Man, I’m looking forward to plenty more tortured football metaphors where that came from.  (And I still think Sessons is missing a golden opportunity to rag Tubs over 2004.)

“As much as I love the guy,” Leard said, “now he’s a politician.”

Tommy Tuberville’s former players range anywhere from bemused to disappointed over the candidate running to be Alabama’s next US Senator.

I’m not really sure why they don’t get it.  He’s still recruiting.  All that’s changed is he’s recruiting a different type of person.

Stick to politics

This seems like one tortured analogy.

Is Jeff Sessions confusing Tommy Tuberville with Paul Johnson?

It would be a lot funnier if he mocked Tubs for that mythical 2004 natty.  And it probably would sting a lot more, too.

Make 2004 great again

Just a reminder — those that can, coach; those that can’t, pander.

Are Auburn fans really gonna vote for this guy?

Just what Alabama needed.

It certainly was an eventful weekend to be an Auburn fan.  Aside from prematurely ejaculating over a men’s basketball national championship game appearance that never materialized, they were also greeted with this news:

Veteran college football coach Tommy Tuberville will run for the United States Senate in Alabama as a Republican, sources tell CBS Sports.

The longtime Auburn coach had considered running for governor in 2017. Instead, he will begin his political career pursuing the senate seat currently held by Democrat Doug Jones. The Republican primary for the seat is March 3, 2020. If Tuberville makes it through, the general election is Nov. 3, 2020.

Jones won the seat vacated by Jeff Sessions in 2017 when Sessions became U.S. Attorney General. In a bitter, contentious special election campaign, Jones finally beat Roy Moore by half a percentage point.

Former Donald Trump press secretary Sean Spicer is working on Tuberville’s campaign.

That combination of talent immediately brought this to mind.

Hey, it beats talking about the season he went to the spread and got fired.

UPDATE:  Oh, boy.

I’m beginning to think there’s some real blogging manna potential here.

Mark Richt’s not so great week

Shot.

Chaser.

Diaz’ defense was the only thing holding Miami up last season.  To lose the architect of that, and then take on Mr. “You’ve got to run the ball in the SEC” as his replacement would be sublime from a blogging perspective… which is why that probably won’t come to fruition.  Damn.
