    It's all over for Aubby, tele-tubby has lost his mind



    AUBURN * Al Borges, a 31-year coaching veteran, has
    been named Auburn offensive coordinator announced head
    football coach Tommy Tuberville today.

    Borges comes to Auburn from Indiana where he spent
    the last two seasons as offensive coordinator. In 2002,
    Indiana set a school record for passing yards.

    "We're extremely excited to have Al join our staff," said
    Tuberville. "He has been very successful as an offensive
    coordinator and he has a lot experience on the collegiate
    level. He shares our philosophy and we look forward to him
    starting Monday."

    Prior to his stint at Indiana, Borges spent six seasons
    coaching in the state of California. He was the offensive
    coordinator/quarterbacks coach at UCLA prior to taking over
    the same duties at California.

    "I am very excited about joining the Auburn coaching
    staff," said Borges. "I am looking forward to working with this
    program and developing a successful offensive system."

    While at UCLA from 1996-2000, the Bruins won a school-
    record 20 straight games between 1997 and 1998 and in both
    seasons, Borges was a finalist for the Frank Broyles Assistant
    Coach of the Year award. He was named Football Coach
    Quarterly's offensive coordinator of the year in 1997.

    Borges helped lead UCLA to three bowl game
    appearances in five seasons. His 1998 offense set school
    records for total offense, passing offense and points scored.
    His 1997 and 1998 offenses averaged 40 points a game.

    In 1995, Borges served as the offensive
    coordinator/quarterback coach at the University of Oregon
    and helped guide the Ducks to an appearance in the Cotton
    Bowl. Oregon led the Pac-10 in passing, averaging 263.8
    yards per game.

    Borges also made coaching stops at Boise State (1993-
    94) and Portland State (1986-92). In 1994, Boise State
    advanced to the Division 1-AA national championship game
    and Portland State won five Western Football Conference
    championships and advanced to the Division II national
    championship game twice during his tenure.

    Borges began his coaching career as an assistant at
    Salinas High (Ca.) in 1975. He also coached at Pleasant Valley
    (Ca.) High School before taking his first job in the collegiate
    level at California as an assistant in 1982.

    From 1983-85, Borges served as the offensive
    coordinator at Diablo Valley (Ca.) College and from 1984-85,
    he was an assistant with the USFL's Oakland Invaders.

    A native of Salinas, Ca., Borges earned his degree from
    California State University, Chico in Physical Education in 1981.

    LOL, he's got PAC-10 on his zoomie ... maybe Tubby thinks he can bring a passing attack to his table and a few passing plays.

    Tubby has NO CHANCE OR PRAYER to beat LSU this year. Expect to see AU throwing more early ... goodie, goodie, goodie ... I can't friggin wait for those picks ...

    AND ANOTHER CHANCE TO SEE THE LSU DEE MAUL ANOTHER FB NERD NAMED JASON

    correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Indiana have trouble finding the endzone this year?

    At one stretch, didn't their QB not have a single passing TD in (perhaps someone can help with the statistics) how many games?

    I wouldn't exactly be thrilled with that hiring either.

    ..but it's I think it's GREAT for Auburn!!! :D LOL!
