Oh, sweet heaven, please, please, please!!

Thank you RunInRed.

I want Cristobal.  He’s been my #1 from the beginning.

But for real, I'd much rather have Mario than Sark.

Why did I think Mario signed his contract ? Sounds like a major legal battle ? Especially if there is a buyout increase 

Sorry I had a long day.  My brain is a little foggy.   I thought MC signed already also,  is there a new rumor or news to make you question it?

a legal battle for us? or between MC and Oregon BOT?

If AG can pull a rabbit out of this poophole we find ourselves in,  it will be a Christmas day miracle. I want Sarkisian or Kiffen but I will support MC. Give the new coach control and incentives. Please for the love of all things Auburn make it happen captain!!

If AG can deliver either of those in this dark hour he should have a statue built in his honor. 

I’ll chip in even if he doesn’t pull this off. Best I can tell, the man is a saint for dealing with this train wreck, and if he perseveres it’s quite possible he’s sold at least some of the PTB on getting out of the way.

So this has been THE botched search of all time by the AU Scrooge McDucks and to recoup, we send in AG to pick up the pieces and save the day? Out or desperation? Was it some kind of bizzarro bargaining? Is this how these things go?

I’m not doubting the new info, but can we really recover from the perceived (and reported) missteps with the candidates?

just asking for a little pepto after the rollercoaster ride. I realize now these are all rhetorical questions...

This is all I can find about him signing his contract, but if you read the article, it only says he AGREED to the new contract. The buyout increases from $8 million to $9 million, which isn’t a deal breaker in the grand scheme of things.

It appears MC agreed to the new contract.  Has he signed it IDK.  Remember Jimbo Fisher was aTm coach for like five months without having signed his new contract

Thanks.   there were "reports" he signed that seemed credible to me at the time..    not that it makes a difference other than it costing us more to buy him out.

I thought Mario was a 5hit choice two weeks ago. After today I’m praying for him. 

I know more than a few shared your opinion, but it seems to me he understands that the game is won in the trenches.  If his philosophy is what I think it is, we’d have kick ass linemen on both sides of the ball.  That’s where good things start.

No doubt about it. That’s what we have lacked when we have lacked.

I doubt Mario has signed a new contract already. It was stated in a previous posting of an article that Oregon was also working on increases for his staff and that was important to MC. These things take some time as we have seen in the past at Auburn. He probably won't sign it until all of those coaches are taken care of first. There's time to do this deal if both sides want it done.

Because it’s a stupid plan if it was a “plan” like you’re suggesting. Why let Steele get trashed, why all the committees and drama. 
 

stay quiet, have the guy picked out BEFORE you fire the $22 million dollar man. 
 

I have 100% belief the BOT and boosters thought they knew what was best and have screwed this up, and are backtracking at Usain Bolts speed.

Do you not recall the huge amounts of crap that surrounded the program around Jetgate when we tried to secure the next coach while the current coach is still employed?   I’m not a fan of our current situation either, but it seems a little underhanded to start negotiations with the next coach while you still have a current coach.

Was thinking the same, I’ve been meh on sark, but if the two to keep an eye on are Mario and sark with AG leading the charge, I’m pumped.

And there you have it.  It was the ingenius plot all along.  To make the announcement go from this:

Hey brother Chiz!  I appreciate that!  Been feeling fairly decent the last couple days and have finding the forum rather fun again.

(Aside: Chiz has a heart of gold y'all, but I didn't tell anybody, shhhh.....)

Yeah, there's so much JABA going on it's like a veiled attempt to cover up actual competence with outward tomfoolery so as to step back in the end and go "TADAAAAAA".  I really don't know what to believe anymore.

But if ADAG really has grown a pair, told the PTB to "take this job and....", and is going out in a blaze of glory by getting MC to sign (not just as a candidate with 50/50 support, but now as if the 2nd coming of Saban) he may very well become the mayor of Auburn too!  HAHA

God bless, brother!
