Auburn maybe should have kept him.

FSU has beaten the SEC champ at least 8 times, and we don’t even play in the SEC, lol:

1987 champs 34-6
1988 champs 13-7
1989 champs 22-14
1993 champs 33-21
1994 champs 23-17
1996 champs 24-21
2000 champs 30-7
2013 champs 34-31

The Jimbo Pistol is 6-1 vs SEC but Auburn had a moral victory, ahead at halftime. College football sees how talent is oozing into Tally and they are afraid!

Now I remember where I have heard that name before. If I’m not mistaken he lasted less than 1 season with Auburn and that offense was horrible, Florida Gator horrible.

No not really, Tubby’s old line assistants would not warm up to it or prepare the team where Franklin could succeed. Finally one day at practice Franklin freaked out and began coaching the offensive line, receivers, quarterbacks and everyone else to the consternation of the assistants which Tuberville would not let go and let Franklin get his own to begin with. The guy is a very good coach and now as OC at ULM they are in the top ten and that coach is being looked at by some bigger schools.

The offense was just too cutting edge for Auburn at the time and strangely they went to one about like it under Malzahn.
