talked to a fella today that is a CPA here in the town i'm from and is an AU alumn to the fullest extent. Anyways he is pretty well connected through some big accounts and is not a repulsive AU fan so I tend to listen to what he has to say sometimes. I asked him who did he want to have as the next AU HC and he said very quickly Jeff Fisher is who a lot are lobbying for and I hope he gets the job as well. He said with the official report about the NCAA investigation hitting mainstream, that it changed the minds of several string pullers to back off Petrino somewhat. He feels its a better P.R. move and is also afraid of the stipulations Petrino will ask for in his contract if sanctions were to be handed down. Basically saying Petrino will have his butt so covered it could be potentially damaging to AU and the administration. Made sense the way he put it.
There is no way in h&@l that Jeff Fisher is leaving the nfl for Auburn. That is the craziest thing I've ever heard. Just plain stupid!
So fisher a very successful NFL HC leaves a job in the NFL for AU
So Fisher turns down USC a few yrs ago mainly due to impending sanctions, but is a realistic candidate for the AU job with impending sanctions? Whatevs.
My gosh. Please someone on their side use some sense. Just a little please. Jeff Fisher is NOT coming to auburn. LOL. He just took the Rams job because he got everything he wanted in his next NFL job as head coach. He has all the power he wants to make decisions to help his team. Leaving, is NOT an option for him at this point. That, I can say even without knowing the man.
I don't care how they word it to make it seem logical. It's not.

If Jeff fisher takes over that garbage dump I'll go to work wearing my wife's panties on the outside of my scrubs.
So an unemployed Bobby Petrino backs out due to impending NCAA sanctions, and a very employed Jeff Fisher of the St. Louis Rams will take the job instead? Mmmk.
Never go full retard!
You mean Jimbo?
If Jeff Fisher leaves the NFL for a college job it'll be for his alma mater, SC after Lame Kitten gets fired. RTR.
Malzahn ... Done deal
I am sorry but Fisher isnt leaving the Rams right now. Maybe he will one day, but the cat is making some serious money and likes the NFL. AU is about to lose maybe 10+ scholarships along with a possible loss of a bowl game next season.
not buying this at all
If anything that sounds opposite of what is likely.
Always delusions of grandeur with that bunch.
why do I get down voted for something an AU booster told me? yall are ridiculous. I didnt pluck this out of the sky I really dont give a damn. I was just passing info along so thanks for all the down votes, hell keep em coming.
So Petrino would make it hard on AU if there are sanctions, but Fisher wouldn't ask for contractual protection?
Barners are craaaazzzyy.
