One Rumor Shut Down.....

....Tommy Tuberville was on 790 the Zone this morning, and squelched any rumors that he'd be the Defensive Coordinator at Georgia, or anywhere else for that matter. Paraphrasing, Tuberville mentioned that he'd been a DC before, and that it was "too much work" (among other reasons.)

Later in the interview, he indicated that he expects to be a head coach again very soon, perhaps as early as 2010. He mentioned the ACC in particular as a possible destination, which seeing how Virginia is the only ACC school with an opening, that may be where he is leaning. I couldn't see him at Maryland (if that job ends up coming open.)

More importantly, it looks highly doubtful that he'll be the next DC in Athens, assuming that an opening eventually exists for that job.

He would not fit in at Virginia. He is more of a blue collar kind of guy while Virginia is more of a blue blood place.

Your last sentence is looking more and more like the case. That opening probably won't come at UGA.

i dont think there will be any changes made at georgia this year, only hope is that with more experience with the db's and lb's we can out athlete them, if not look for alot of shootouts again next year
