We have made it a full business week without a hire.

If you were with us over the past couple of days, you’re to be commended. Thursday was as wild as it gets. Let’s run it down:

  • We wake up to the continued Mario Cristobal vs Kevin Steele faction wars.
  • Oregon BOT meeting set for high noon, at which point they’ll vote on a new contract for Cristobal.
  • It’s unanimously approved at the BOT meeting about 12 minutes into the discussion.
  • Oregon football tweets out that Cristobal has been extended.
  • It comes out that BOBBY LOWDER was the secret knife in the dark pushing Kevin Steele over the last couple of years.
  • Auburn Twitter explodes.

As it stands now, we’re a week out from Christmas, so sit back, load up FlightTracker, pour an eggnog, and have a good time. Auburn will be going to a bowl game at some point, where Kevin Steele will ostensibly be the head coach, but we don’t know when or where. We also have no idea who’s actually on the shortlist right now aside from the names bandied about on the internet. They are:

  • Kevin Steele - current Auburn defensive coordinator/interim head coach
  • Billy Napier - current ULL head coach
  • Tony Elliott - current Clemson offensive coordinator
  • Steve Sarkisian - current Alabama offensive coordinator
  • Lane Kiffin - current Ole Miss head coach

I’m sure there are more, and probably someone that hasn’t been suggested online, but we’ll see. The search committee put together will have some work ahead of them, but the longer this goes on, it’ll be more apparent that we’re pulling a Tennessee from a couple seasons ago. Gross.
