Besides over signing Chiziks deal what has Jay Jacobs done that everyone hates? Baseball coach is a solid one. He just signs kids that get drafted in the first round. Basketball is on a straight rocket up. Football is on an all time low but we did sneak out a NC less than 2 years ago. So I'm actually asking to be educated and not childishly made fun of. In your opinion what sucks about JJ ?

I don't have the stats but overall athletics are in the bottom of the league.
Mens/womens BB have been very weak the last several years, mens baseball is just above average ,womens softball just average and BTW mens/women swimming and diving have now fallen off our past NC pace, so I ask you what has been so great lately - Equestrian ?
ON TO VICTORY - STRIKE UP THE BAND
Those sports, along with women's basketball, have collectively been the number 10 programs in a 12 team SEC.
There have been some ups, in all four sports, but those ups have been the exceptions, random individual seasons...none can really said to be "trending" up....certainly not stable, even a little.
This. Being on a rocket don't mean crap when you are in the Mariana Trench. And based on talent, baseball has been disappointing.
I Believe Auburn and Love IT...4 Life!
You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
His record proves he is a good old boy that is not capable of hiring the top football HC's, much less run a $100 million enterprise. There were at least three AD candidates interviewed when he was hired that were more qualified than he without question. If he stays on, we will not hire the best HC, probably another Chizik.
I'm not saying I'm not mainstream thinking. I'm actually trying to get away from the mainstream and listen to collective opinions about JJ. I reserve my own. I was just hoping for explanations on bitterness towards him and/or justifications on keeping or showing people the door.
That's easy to answer, the handling of Gus Malzhan last year as an escape goat for Auburn's woes and the Will Muschamp fiasco. Jay Jacobs doesn't know this yet, but he really has no friends within the Auburn family because people are talking. Jay, do the right thing, resign! Your time is up!
"you're so vain, I'll bet you think this post is about you, don't you? Don't you?"
Look at our record againt VANDY in the three major sports over his tenure........
