Want to know how extreme Tommy Tuberville really is? It's even caught some of his former players by surprise. This morning, Slate asked four of his players about Tuberville, who:
“...has said that his number one priority was “taking that stick out of [Trump’s] hand and giving [him] a baseball bat.” He has also promoted birtherism, complained bitterly about environmentalists, said immigrants were bringing “drugs” and “diseases,” and stoked fear about the socialist and communist “indoctrination” of the education system.” ( Slate, Oct. 31)
All I could think is, why?
...to me, this is a power grab.
–Tommy Jackson, 2002-2005
This old football coach is trying to combine a half dozen extremist ideas with lies and hiding. His own former players are questioning him as a candidate.
"It’s tough for me to take what I’ve seen from him as a football coach and put into the realm of politics (...) I honestly don’t think he’s qualified to do the job."
–Spencer Johnson (2000-2003)
"A lot of guys keep up with each other. There’s lot of different circles. It’s the majority that are disappointed. (...) Sometimes we look at him and say, OK, is this Coach Tuberville? And it’s like, nah, that’s not Coach Tuberville. So it’s kind of confusing to us, as well."
–Adlai Trone (1996-1999)
"I’ll be honest. I didn’t really know what [party] he was representing. He coached multicultural kids. I would have thought it was gonna be on the Democratic side. You have knowledge of these kids’ backgrounds, where they come from. You sit in their homes and see their circumstances. But with him going on the Republican side, and backing in what Trump is trying to do, it’s raised a level of concern...."
–Prechae Rodriguez (2005-2007)
Want to know about Tuberville's honesty and integrity? These are people who played for him everyday.
Take it from former Auburn wide receiver Devin Aromashodu:
“That doesn’t reflect the person that I knew (...) it sounds like two different people."
