Tommy Tuberville has had tough weeks in his coaching career, but there might never have been a more important week than this one.
The Auburn Tigers are on the edge of completely imploding.
After eight months building up a new offense, Tuberville abandoned the plan six games into the season and fired offensive coordinator Tony Franklin. The idea, which has worked many times before for many coaches, was to place blame for failure on the coordinator.
But the Auburn offense was even worse in the first game after Franklin was fired, so hopefully the fans would buy into the idea that the Tigers didn’t have enough time after Franklin was fired to develop a game plan that would fix the offense.
Nobody bought into that idea, especially not the thousands of Tiger fans who expressed their displeasure by booing the Tigers unmercifully on Saturday.
