RUNDOWN: Thursday


AUBURN | A fresh edition of the Daily Rundown, an interesting and sometimes humorous examination of the most relevant football and basketball news, has been posted for your aural enjoyment.

Today we focus on Tony Barbee, who was fired Wednesday night after four mostly disappointing seasons on the Plains. That he was let go wasn't a surprise. That athletic director Jay Jacobs did it at the team hotel shortly after the team returned from the Georgia Dome was a surprise. Jacobs didn't wait around long.

Does that mean he has Barbee's successor already in line? Which coaches appear to be good fits for the Tigers? And will the next coach be free to negotiate his own apparel deal?
We discuss all that along with the Top 20 and the baseball team, which has won five games in a row heading into the weekend series against Texas A&M.

Enough reading; it's RUNDOWN TIME.
