From Scarbinsky article:
"Chizik was informed of at least some of the issues, and he raised the academic issue with his assistant coaches at one point, but did the head coach really follow through or was he sending mixed signals?
One example: During the second week of the regular season, before the cracks in the foundation began to show up on the field in a lifeless 28-10 loss at Mississippi State, an academic adviser told Chizik there was a problem with one of his Auburn starters.
The adviser said the player wasn't going to class, wasn't doing his classwork, wasn't making much of an effort at all in the classroom.
Chizik’s response: He told the adviser he didn't believe him. That player started the Mississippi State game and struggled terribly, never showed much development on the field and eventually lost his starting job."
“they ain't got nothing but people...Alabama mystique...Georgia mystique...they’ve done it with people. Hell, we’ve got people, too.”Pat Dye
"Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing." Teddy Roosevelt
Screams Kyle Frasier to me. Another great Malzahn recruit.
"I've seen some coaches lose with good players. I haven't seen anybody win without them." Rhett Lashlee
Definitely Kiehl. The fact that Chiz refused to believe the adviser makes it appear obvious to me.
