Told me Bunker wanting Kirby Smart and they will do almost anything to get him and that Bama coaches have contacted Dyer to potentially come to Bama and play next year. Where do they get this stuff?
I firmly believe they get this stuff from message boards..
Where the original guys get it is beyond me. No way CKS leaves for Auburn, although Tennessee might be a real possibility.
Dyer at Alabama is laughable.
You say that about Dyer but if you read the article on him trying to get things in order and possibly being able to come in with 2 years to play someone will get him. If his life is in order why not? He is one hell of a player.
I've observed Saban long enough to know that Dyer ain't coming to Bama. Saban has a stable of top-notch backs already with more coming in in February. He wouldn't touch a character-issue Auburn reject in a million years.
More likely Dee Liner .

On Alabama: CeCe Jefferson - "It was a bunch of beautiful women..." Reggie Ragland - "oh the females of course..."
How long do you think it would take to rehabilitate MD?
A lot of people made similar comments about Aaron Douglas, too.
I don't know about that we took Aaron Douglas after being kicked out of UT and he obviously had not straightened himdlef out despite reports to the contrary. I hope Saban doesn't go this route again as it rarely works out.Cam Newton is the only one I can think of that did but it almost spelled disaster for the barn but I also think that hurt their program as much as the tainted NC helped it. Mttenberger isn't doing much for LSU either.I'm not bashing Saban for AD but I hope he doesn't repeat that kind of action. He's very hard on players he recruits out of high school and when they get in the dog house with him they almost never really get out. When they're not good enough for AU or UT they definitely shouldn't be for us.
We will have 7 scholarship RBs (all of them being 4* or higher) on roster next year and we're looking to get Michael Dyer?
you serious Clark?
I wouldn't be surprised at all if Auburn tried to get Kirby Smart. The guy is a true Saban protege. I think he'll make a fantastic coach. Auburn is going with the " you can't beat em, join em" strategy. but I seriously doubt smart would go to auburn. he will have options. options that don't require you to fight tooth and nail against your mentor for every player you want. plus, he knows the hate is already to strong.
in summary, the poster is probably correct. but I doubt the interest is mutual.

Can someone explain to me why Kirby taking the Auburn job is so far-fetched? Georgia recruiting is his bread-and-butter and Auburn is about as close as you can get to Georgia without being in the state. I get the sense they're ready to start throwing some serious money at the program and he could probably get whatever improvements he wants, similar to Jimbo Fisher. What am I missing?
You can forget about Kirby going to Auburn, primarily because the model he uses for success is Saban's, and you're not going to get the administrative autonomy at Auburn with Dye and those clowns hanging around. Not unless Kirby gets a break-the-bank check and tells people he's going to run things his way or they can go shit in a hat. I can see Auburn pony'ing up the money, but I can't see the behind-the-scenes powers-that-be allowing anyone to run things independently.
Agree, Tennessee or Georgia is likely to be Kirby's next best option.
Another job that might be interesting would be Georgia Tech. That Paul Johnson axed Al Groh this week suggests he's probably fine for another year, but that's a $2.6 million/yr job.
And I wouldn't rule Kirby out at Arkansas, either. Petrino was making huge money there.
