    Walt I heard the same thing re: Capel the last time around. The prickly thing about hiring Pearle is that Jacobs has always preached the importance of hiring coaches that “do the right thing” and set a positive example for our student athletes. This was at least a major part of Bobby Petrino’s baggage that made him a non-option. Not to compare Pearle with Petrino but that does complicate matters.

    All the foregoing points to Tyndall…or perhaps someone who’s not on the radar. One interesting long shot is Ben Howland. He’s still unemployed despite going to three Final Fours in a row @ UCLA. He had a great run @ Pitt before that. He would be a homerun but his personality is pretty closely akin to Barbee AND he has no ties to the South that I know of…which I don’t care a lick about but then again, no one is asking me. :(

    I interrupt basketball to say it looks like I’ll be making it to the Arky Gus v. Bert “I like things slow….and fried” Butthead game! And I’m already excited!

    Okay carry on. ;)

    How about that softball team. Three no hitters in a row!?!?!? That’s got to be some kind of record.

    Clint Meyers is a legend for a reason…..I mean no disrespect to the prior coach Tina Deese (who I’ve known since her days at Huntingdon College in the late 80’s when I worked for her) but Meyers is taking this program to new highs for sure.

    Hey folks, I hope all is well. I know we don’t have a basketball coach currently, but I thought we still could do brackets. I’m using the ESPN bracket competition.

    Our group name is TheAuburner
    pass: weagle

    I’m ok, with you opening this up on twitter if you want Mark.

    Oh— and War Eagle!

    Spring Practice starts tomorrow! Gustav says he believes we can be faster next year (take that Saban and BERT). Also confirmed that Jonathon Ford has moved to Safety and Trovon Reed to CB. Hopefully those moves work out. Now back to my continuously checking Twitter to see if Auburn has managed to snag Bruce Pearl.

    Keep me posted on the bball coach search. I’m probably the biggest AU hoops guy out here in the Auburner Family…if longevity and prior season ticket status means anything. :)
    Plus I’m AU hoops geeky enough to be able to name guys from the 70’s that played there. Yeah, I’m sick like that. ;)

    JCMac, sounds great…looking forward to it! Good luck everybody!

    Just heard from a buddy @ work (and fellow AU grad) that Pearl is official (which means I should stop misspelling his name and take the “e” off the end). :)

    Great, great pick up for AU men’s hoops! WDE!!!

    I have no idea about basketball but apparently from you guys I see this Pearl thing as a big deal. Go us!

    Bruce Pearl… so I guess we might have a basketball team next year.

    I’m actually excited about Auburn basketball. Amazing. Pearl won the press conference without a doubt. He’s got some serious excitement and looks like he’s injecting that enthusiasm into the program. Can’t wait to see what he does!

    The truly amazing thing is that this hire and the press conference even over-shadowed the first day of spring practice for football!
