Chiz should have known about Tyrik's pattern of behavior and dealt with it early pn - like calling Momma and telling her baby T was about to be on the next Greyhound back to Tejas. Thats how a good manager would have handled it .
Pike had issues back to high school. A good manager doesn't put a lot of eggs in that kids basket. In other words - sign another one. And did we really see an SEC QB in Moseley? Again - sign a backup plan.
You don't have to use the lords name like that.
Fact of the matter is that most of these kids have red flags nowadays.
Have people stopped recruiting Carl Lawson or Dee Liner? Absolutely not. If anything, it's heated up 100X's.
Remember Carl got kicked out of camp and Dee suspended for his high school team.
Character risk are something that every team in the country has to deal with.
How about I give you a "what if" scenario, and I only need one:
What if we don't connect on a hail mary before the half ends vs ULM. 0-5 with even more of the garbage on and off the field.
Who would have known Cam would be such a hit that he'd go pro after his JR year, Trotter would leave a year of eligibility on the table, Moseley would develop a bum shoulder, Pike would be a troublemaker (okay, we did know this, but not to the extent he was), and that Kiehl would look like a deer in the headlights after winning 3 state titles?
What a joke. Character risks are one thing every program has to deal with but we have well more than our fair share under Chizik. Recruiting kids that are known to have character issues, and then when they don't even make it one semester..... That is not "bad luck". Wake up man.
Auburn Guy, I am an eternal optimist, glass half full kind of guy. However, you can not dispute these facts:
1. 4 arrested for armed robbery
2. 2 players dead, 1 shot
3. Multiple arrests
4. A defense that can't cover a 2nd string tight-end who ends up with a career day(Game 5 I might add)
5. A secondary leading the team in tackles
6. Supposed future NFL ends that have only 1 technique for a pass rush(helping to create the pocket for opposing QB's)
7. Lineman who can't shed blocks to stop the run
8. 11 players that look completely inept(can't call it an Offense)
9. Dis-functional play calling by a staff that is oblivious to fact that the opposing team(s) have your signals picked off
11. That 1 is by gimmick plays alone
I could go on, but 1-3 are reasons for ALARM. I have tried to remain positive but the TRUTH is, Sh*t rolls down hill from the top.
