The Search: Pre-Lunch Update


Plenty of tidbits to pass along. As carwwest noted, DE Pernell McPhee (ICC) is considering his options, with Alabama, Georgia and Michigan closing in.

Nothing new on coaching candidates right now, at least not in direct relation to MSU. However, there is a bit of news about the other vacancies.

Auburn has interviewed Buffalo head coach Turner Gill, and Syracuse has interviewed Saints offensive coordinator Doug Marrone. (Gill has been mentioned as an MSU candidate.) Also on the Auburn front, Florida State OC Jimbo Fisher – the Seminoles’ coach-in-waiting – evaded questions about the opening but did not shut the door on the possibility. And Georgia assistant head coach Rodney Garner, a former Auburn standout, has “had a conversation” about the position. And, Miami’s AD said he has been contacted by Auburn concerning offensive coordinator Patrick Nix.

And this is at least mildly interesting: “Sparty,” the blogger who reported that Chris Petersen was headed to MSU, addresses criticism he received for that report.

    Have any of you guys seen this article about Tubby’s mom?

    I think I’m amused that it was his mother. I like to imagine Tubby sitting at the kitchen table in PJs, eating a bowl of cereal, and then yelling out “MoooooOOOm!” when he sees the story.

    Dear Santa,

    Please bring us a coach with a fast offense and an iron curtain defense for under 3.5 million dollars. Thats all I want…

    I heard today that Greg Byrne will be announcing the hiring of Ron Polk as Head Football Coach with Tommy Raffo as his Offensive Coordinator. Byrne feels deeply regretful for the way the previous situation worked out and he wants to settle his soul.

    Will he bring Croom back into the fold as a basketball coach? Stansbury can take over hockey.

    des dawhg ner happy dey had good coach and he gotaway

  22. tennesseemarine01 Says:

    and little dewey’s, and fire ants, and sky dawgs, and cowbells, and a big ass jumbotron above the Leo Seal fieldhouse. But mostly we want a coach that wants to WIN, and do it with integrity and an offense that will blow your mind, and who knows…even a blood thirsty defense would be good too. I really enjoyed going to the games in the 90’s when we were competitive. It is a long drive back to Memphis when you loose.

  23. Braves Dawg Says:

    who you talkin’ about meth, jackie?

    oh yeah coach, we got the meth man.

  24. Braves Dawg Says:

    dang marine! you’re gonna scare him away with that little dewey talk! pipe down!

  25. The Prez Says:


    I drank some some Coors Light the other day but it wasn’t out of a bottle. It was out of a….ummmm…..a tap…..whats that called?

  26. Braves Dawg Says:

    did you have your mouth open under the tap?

  27. The Prez Says:

    i think i did. i don’t really remember.

  28. Braves Dawg Says:

    you didn’t wake up with your boone hurting did you?

  29. The Prez Says:

    no. i woke up next to Boone.
