Tommy Tuberville told the truth. Forbes magazine has not called to ask the Auburn football coach to pose for a photo shoot.
Not that he couldn’t be a cover boy.
“I’m going to be on the cover of Progressive Farmer,” he said.
Despite losing Reggie Hunt to the NCAA Clearinghouse and one player after another to injuries large and small and the mythical national title of most powerful coach in sports to Nick Saban, Tuberville hasn’t lost his sense of humor.
Why would he? According to most credible pollsters, he’s got one of the top 10 or 15 teams in the nation. As usual.
“I like that some people recognize, `You know, Auburn does have a football team down there,'” Tuberville said.
He’s got a new offense that has to be better than the old one because, if for no other reason, it would be hard to be worse.
