The Daily Believer: 12.31.09

The Daily Believer is your daily-ish dose of whAUtever, a dose that grows by the second, minute, hour, who knows. Maybe there’s something going on tonight at the Gnu’s Room. Maybe there’s a volleyball game. Maybe there’s some update to The War Eagle Reader you need to know about. Maybe last night’s episode of How I Met Your Mother referenced Bo, or had a nice, faux vintage Auburn t-shirt all up in it. Maybe Pat Dye’s Pants have no reserve on eBay. In other words, we’re live-blogging Auburn – town, gown, idea – and we need your help. Are you putting on an event? A show? Let us know. Know about one? Let us know. Spot Chizik at Byrons? Let us know. Did you see that episode of House? Let us know.

Possible Texas Tech coach Tommy Tuberville?:

Texas media outlets and ESPN are throwing around Tubs’ name this morning as a possible replacement at Texas Tech for closet-punishment lovin’ Mike Leach.

Chuck Carlton of The Dallas Morning News breaks down his top five candidates, placing Tuberville’s odds of landing the spot at 10-1.

ESPN’s Ivan Maisel throws Tuberville’s hat into the ring: “… former Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville is a proven winner whose unflappability may calm the roiled waters in Lubbock.” ESPN’s Big 12 blogger Tim Griffin also mentions here and here that Tuberville is probably on the short list.

Kirk Bohls at Austin, Texas’ The Statesman has a column header that says “Nobody wins in the Mike Leach mess.” Uhhh … Tubs would be a winner. A big winner if he landed the job. Bohls ends his column by adding:

If I were on Tech’s search committee, I’d approach SMU’s June Jones, former Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville, and Sumlin and even look at Texas offensive coordinator Greg Davis, who has a sharp mind, can milk the most out of all sorts of quarterbacks and is the most decent, stand-up and professional coach at Texas.

Tech could do a lot worse.

Unfortunately, that’s exactly what we might see in the future.
