I don't think we need to worry about CTB getting fired. I believe he'll quit before he ruins his career any further. I think he sees that this is a football school and will go somewhere he can get decent recruits that won't quit or get kicked off the team. I doubt he thinks he's bad enough to be fired - he always blames the losses on the 'team' or 'players' or whatever - never himself. So....he'll go on his own pretty quick. A few more losses like today's and he might be gone even sooner - but not fired. However, we surely do need a change - and pretty quick! WDE!!

And that change is not the head coach...though many of you still refuse to take your heads out of the sand.
Performance stands out like a ton of diamonds. Nonperformance can always be explained away.

When you consider the dismal state of Auburn basketball since the departure of Sonny Smith, it would be suicide not to give Barbee five years. I know Cliff Ellis won an SEC title, but he had only two winning conference records during his 10-year stint here. No coach in his right mind would take the Auburn job without an assurance of at least five years to get it going. I don't know that Barbee is the answer, but firing him now would be a big mistake and make it virtually impossible to hire a good coach to replace him. I believe it took John Wooden six years to start winning at UCLA.
You grad, bro?
First, Barbee has at least 1 more year, if not 2. If he s fired, then hire his assistant, Miller.
