There is some buzz going around that Tony Franklin, Troy’s offensive coordinator, is the leading contender to replace Al Borges at Auburn. It should by now be apparent how I feel about buzz. But unlike the ridiculous rumors of lateral-at-best Tuberville moves, this line of thinking has common sense on its side, especially if, as is being reported, Tuberville will introduce a new coordinator tomorrow, and one who will coach Cox and Co. in the Peach Bowl; Google Maps has Troy at 89.2 miles from Auburn, which would mean little Holiday inconvenience for Franklin.
If he is our man, I’m excited. Troy had me scared early in their dismantling of Oklahoma State at the beginning of this season and the stats listed on Franklin’s Troy bio-page are impressive to say the least. And he’s a writer, by the way.
