EXCUSES! Nick Saban cheats!

Tommy Tuberville is out as Auburn’s head coach but his demise had nothing to do with duck hunting trips during recruiting season. Instead it was all about Auburn’s Jetgate fiasco and Nick Saban cheating.

A woman called Amy, believed to be the wife of Steve Ensminger called an Auburn talk radio station and engaged in a rant against Auburn’s administration. In her call (listen here) she blamed Auburn’s current troubles on Jetgate.

“This is how Auburn runs things,” she said. “This is hurting recruiting just like they did in ’03 which is why we had the class we did this year…later she added. “This is the senior class of ’03 the Jetgate guys.”

Could we possibly blame anything else on Jetgate? Global warming? No doubt thanks to all that jet fuel expended. The recession? Why not. A 5-7 record? Sure thing!

But the blame game didn’t stop there. Tuberville and his staff were fired because they wouldn’t do the unethical things Auburn demands.

“You know what? Nobody is going to beat Nick Saban in this state,” Amy said. “Nobody. Unless, well, they may get somebody in here now that will shake a hand and put a couple of hundred dollars in a recruits pockets like they did in the past. And that is probably what is going to happen.”

But wait. There’s more.

“That is what they are looking for,” she said. “They are looking for someone to buy players like Nick Saban does.”

With these comments is there any doubt why Auburn fired Tuberville? Apparently, nobody on that staff knows how to accept responsibility—it is everybody else’s fault. And when you can’t do your job, accuse your boss of creating problems and your competition of cheating.

If this was how Tuberville’s staff acted, it was long past time to fire him.

    They said a mouthful.
    Al got fired because he wouldnt pay players. Then they kept paying him to keep his mouth shut. Yep. That pretty well says it all abou the tacky way Auburn does business.

    folks, nothing is coincidence.

    these calls were coordinated.

    both women mention children. in donna’s call you can hear children in the background. amy speaks of her daughter finding out during “eye surgery”. she actually mentions donna dunn. then (surprise, surprise, surprise…..in my best gomer pyle) donna calls. her son found out while giving a “speech” in class at auburn. another student interrupted him to tell him.

    both use talking points. “the way they did things in ’03.” “this is hurting recruiting”.

    me thinks we might be listening in on the braintrusts that called the media so they would be in position to show us tony franklin leaving the athletic dept. in disgrace.

    (and in fact one “caller” actually makes reference to franklin)

    and in the height of hypocrisy, i believe it’s donna claims her husband would never air his dirty laundry on a radio talk show like that other guy did.

    no lady, they’ve got their wives doing it for them.

    How gay can you people be? Writing an article about Ensmingers wife ? This blog makes the Jerry Springer show look like 60 minutes. Grow up people.

    Hey Ballplay, it is your team that is imploding and pointing fingers. Maybe they will throw chairs at the press conference. **(Brando sits back, munches popcorn)**

    Sorry dude. You know we went through some of these pains in the past, so it really is hard to see it happen to you guys. I really thought Tubby would stay, but I guess he just didn’t have the energy left to have to try and start all over again. Who would you like to be the next Auburn coach? Most Auburn people I know are saying Muschamp, but I am not sure that he will be available this year. It really seems like the coaching pool is not very good this year. Mike Leach is probably the biggest name coach that may be looking around, but I don’t know if he would be the right fit.

    I would rather get kicked in the nuts than see another spreadmiester come to town.

    I would like to see Muschamp. Hes a defensive minded coach, and that is crucial in this conference.

  7. 10

    What do you believe the chances are of getting Muschamp? I think he left awful quick from Auburn after Borges was fired. There are rumors that Muschamp took his house in Auburn off the market in the past few days.

    I dont know……..I heard from a local coach that Muschaps departure was more about frustration from Tubbervilles lack of desire in recruiting and coaching than anything. He could see the writing on the wall. He got out of Dodge while he could. But who knows , almost everybody knows somebody that knows somebody. You know.

    For the right amount of cabbage, hiring Muschamp would be a non-issue. I guess it depends how deep the powers that be want to dig. For 2-3 mill a year he will be wearing Blue and Orange again, IMO. Mack Brown still has several years left in him, and Will doesnt seem like the type of guy to be waiting for much, knowhatimean ?

    Ballplay…I can confirm that is exactly why Muschamp left…frustration over being the only member of the Auburn staff that was out busting his butt to recruit while everyone else was just sitting back. But it also had to do with the “run-a-around” he was getting from the AD on changes to his contract. And no…it wasn’t about money. I think based on the relationship between Muschamp and the Admin at his departure…you’re not going to see him back in Auburn.

    If he did come back, how much would it take ? A lot.

    Then again, to get any coach worth a crap, a lot.

    Funny thing is, there wasnt this big uproar when Tony Franklin was getting the axe. You would think SOMEONE would be calling the radio stations about his unfair treatment. What goes around comes back around.

    Tommy has proven he could win. Tony didnt. Therefore , no uproar.

    That’s a little terminology known as “loser’s limp.” I’m sure Dave Radar’s wife accused the Les Miles and Urban Meyers of the world cheaters, simply because Shula was a lousy recruiter.

    It’s not just about Saban; who in their right mind would want to go to Aufarm anyway over the likes of The University, LSU, UF, and UGA? I can see why they pick Aufarm over UAB, but any of the aforementioned schools… you’d have to be retarded to go to Aufarm over them.

    Yeah, that bitch Dona Dunn wrote an article about how badly they were all treated by the Bama fans at the game. And she said she knew the Auburn people would never act that way because they were too ‘classy’. She is a joke, as Ensmingers wife is. If they are griping about Saban, what do you think that the ex-coaching staff thought of it? Sounds like jealousy and sour grapes to me.

    Lets see Nick Saban screwed LSU and he lied to Miami so why is it so hard to believe the guy cheats????? He has a track record of low rent behavior.
