An extension offer should be made by Auburn today or tomorrow. LINK
I’ve never planned on talking about Tommy Tuberville and coaching rumors for days on end, because other than the Iron Bowl…. I really don’t feel that I need to follow and comment on everything about Auburn athletics. But, I would like to at least go on record once as believing that if this story is really true, I believe it could just be Tommy positioning himself for the best possible results he could hope for. It is a mixture of leverage and payback. It is leverage since he can use the “I may be going to Arkansas” line to get a heck of a deal at Auburn. If not, he can become the Head Hawg in Fayetteville by Saturday. It is pretty much an ultimatum.
It may be payback since we all remember the board members and school President got onto that Jet and went to Louisville, Kentucky. This is Tommy’s turn to turn the screws on the Auburn board members who try to stab Tuberville in the back.
Of course, my theory could be total garbage if this is just a rumor gone wild (Which it very well could be). If Tuberville addresses it tomorrow, that probably means that he is staying at Auburn. He’s scheduled to recruit for Auburn tomorrow night, so I imagine that will be a big sign of what he plans on doing. Still, I’m leaning towards him staying put in Auburn at this point.
