The Chick-Fil-A folks released the pairings yesterday for their college football coaches charity golf tournament.
Hugh Freeze is paired with Nick Saban. We should get a top 10 list of the tempo offense jokes that will come from that grouping before the tournament, which is April 27-29 outside of Atlanta.
Here are the other coach pairings: Group Two, Paul Johnson (Georgia Tech) and Frank Beamer (Virginia Tech); Group Three, Larry Fedora (North Carolina) and Steve Spurrier (South Carolina); Group Four, Dan Mullen (MSU) and Dave Doeren (N.C. State); Group Five, Gus Malzahn (Auburn) and Dabo Swinney (Clemson); Group Six Tommy Tuberville (Cincinnati).
Each coach also has one golfer with a connection to his school to complete the foursome. For Freeze, that’s former Ole Miss basketball player Sean Tuohy. There’s no mention as to why Tuberville is not paired with another coach.
While the Freeze-Saban pairing is sure to create some interesting discussion, so would a Freeze-Malzahn pairing in light of the news earlier this week that Ole Miss OL Austin Golson is exploring options to transfer closer to his Prattville, Ala., home.
