Would an Alabama fan even consider voting for Tommy Tuberville? It's something to start thinking about, because according to Dennis Dodd at CBS Sports, the former Auburn coach is considering a run for the state's highest office.
Political Experience? He has none, but that doesn't seem to be a problem for a certain President of the United States. In fact, a lot of voters now seem to view a lack of political experience as a good thing.
But could he overcome his days at Auburn? That's bound to make him popular with Tigers fans (War Eagle!), but he remains a highly polarizing figure to Alabama fans. And that's where he could run into trouble.
Dodd says that Tubs is just testing the waters right now, to see if it's even worth doing. But if he does, I have just one request: Charles Barkley needs to finally fulfill his pledge to run for Governor of Alabama, as well. They're both Auburn, which would split the "War Eagle!" vote, but for entertainment value alone, it would be fun to see the two of them square off.
And let's be honest, it can't get much worse than the "Luv Gov" who's currently doing the people's business.
Here's the CBS Sports story.
