    No.. No flaming of Auburn here. I thought they posed an interesting (If not arrogant) question.

    The question - Would you trade your Auburn Degree and Loyalty to Coach Alabama for 1.2 million /year ?
    Most of the replies were HELL no.

    So I pose to you. LSU Degree and Loyalty to coach Auburn for 1.2 Million a year.

    My Answer - Hand me a clip board an Auburn hat and WAR DAMN EAGLE !!!!!!!

    1.2 Million a year - Hell when do I start. Just warning you chuck I am a well polished PS2 Ncaa 2003 player. SO i will never punt, always kick on side kick.

    I'm saying 1.2 million dollars while hold my pinkie Dr. Evil style. Now, if it's 1.2 million versus 30 thousands/yr then it's a no brainer. But if it's something like 1.2 at Auburn and 800,000 here then I'd tell Auburn thanks, but go to hell.

    I too have polished NCAA 2003 so the play calling may get repetitive at times. Twins left I-form counter trap from the left hash marks is a TD every time!

    can I be the Offensive Coordinator??

    but I gotta warn you I wanna make Marvin Lewis NFL type assitant coach money...about 1.2 millon a year.....also a vet of NCAA 2003....but I created a school under my real name....and right now in heisman mode I am ranked 1st in the country and fixing to play Miami in the championship game I average around 50 points a game and I always run plays out of the Shotgun formation....speed options, draws, off tackle plays, and spread Em out passing attack 5 receiver sets...my school is located in Monroe Louisiana, and interesting enough my quarterback I picked out in my latest recruiting class is starting as a true freshman has the last name of LANE....maybe an omen of great things to come....well please consider my resume......I got 16 national championships, and have only lost 3 games in about 6 1/2 months of owning the game.

    trying to bring this down on . .

    to a level I can relate with (no one will be offering me anything at a rate of 1M anytime soon) -

    I agree with Mike D and texastigers . .

    If Alabama was to offer me a 6 figure job as a professor, I would take it - however, I would take an Auburn job at 80,000, over an Alabama job at 100,000.

    texastigers - with your style of coaching . you resemble Tubby when he first got to Auburn . .:)

    Very Rarley I am married so any former life has been removed.

    I purchased a 61 inch widescreen so I can split the screen to two 47 inch tvs so my wife can watch Trading Spaces on one side and I can play PS2 on the other. Right now I am 3 tournaments away from mastering Tiger Woods 2003. I shot a 42 (Yes on 18) on Pebble Beach last night. I eagled the first 4 holes.

    So it is a life I have been assigned to....

    in 2002 I won 59 National Titles with LSU and Rohan and Reed played for LSU every 5 years or so. Reed won the Hiesman 7 times.

    Has anyone played Madden 2003 on the Internet yet. It is great. The Saints have NO defense but The Duece is great.

    I haven't left my desk in a few days watching what's been transpiring everywhere. But hey, my employees think I'm accomplishing something! The stack of paperwork on my desk that measured about 3 ft high this morning is now divided into 3 12" stacks! Progress!

    I'm with Texas Tigers on this one....I'd be gone! Fans have a fanatical perspective on things...but I'd dare say most saying "Hell No!" in that poll won't see a 1/4 of 1.2 million in their lifetime. Careers are one thing and it's seems to be easy to forget football is our entertainment not our family's well being.

    I think this question raises (As Terry did so well) the fact the more often then not people take this whole College Football thing a bit to seriously.

    Look I love LSU, my home and the people I grew up with in Louisiana. Sure we rip on Auburn, but honestly if you are in a fox hole in WW2, would you rather have an Auburn fan fighting with you or some foriegner or someone from San Fransisco ?

    Me give me the Auburn fan. No question, Heck give me Tuberville then someone from California.

    It is just a game, we are all americans. I would coach Auburn for 200,000 a year to be honest. For me that is considerably larger then what I am making now. AND I get to be involved in something I love College football.

    BUT !, I would pull a Fran on them in a second if the LSU job came open ;)

    I would bring a MNC to Death Valley with my No punting and punishing rushing attack.
     
  9. I'd take their money but I know which game we would be loosing every year....like clock work

    : )

    Ha ha.. Good point. We would go 11-1 everyear.

    I could see it now. Headline WEN !

    Coach TexasTiger once again goes against his coaching strategy that has gotten him 9 wins this season and punts on 1st down. Auburns D returns and interception to the LSU 1 only to turn around on Offense and run 99 yards for the safety.
