As Auburn shuffles through the potential candidates to replace Tommy Tuberville, the new names pop up by the day, while others get lucrative deals to stay where they are.

The latest name to enter the picture is Turner Gill of Buffalo, and it's about time that Gill got a legitimate shot when you look at what he's done at Buffalo in turning around that program.

It also appears that Georgia Tech is going to do what it can to keep first-year coach Paul Johnson off Auburn's radar.

Ole Miss' Houston Nutt has already had his contract sweetened to the $2.5 to $2.8 million range after his name came up in the Auburn search. It also sounds like the Florida State president isn't too keen on letting coach-in-waiting Jimbo Fisher out of his pricey buyout to be a player in the Auburn search.

So for the time being, keep your eyes on Gill.
