Former Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville was planning to run for governor of Alabama, but according to Auburn Undercover, he's apparently changed his mind. He told SiruisXM: "It's been a long process, and I was doing it for the right purpose. At the end of the day, I decided not to run."
It was always going to be a struggle to win over Alabama fans. Politics aside, most Crimson Tide fans were emphatically NOT fans of Tubs. He may have won in a general election in this heavily Republican state, but getting past other Republicans in a statewide primary -- Republicans without the anti-Tide baggage -- might have proven impossible.
