Safety Erique Florence is "taking care of some personal issues" and is no longer part of the Auburn football team, Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said today. He said Florence has not been part of the team recently and will not return.

That is disappointing to hear. I had big expectations for him and thought he could end up being a great player. Seems like a lot of those highly recruited players in the secondary have had trouble seeing the field...Jonathon Rose, Erique Florence, Robinson Therezie...only Jermaine Whitehead from that class has seen serious playing time who was a last minute signee before Marcus Roberson continued to play games and ended up at Florida.
The secondary coaches are hard nosed coaches. Obviously, E. Florence is not cut out for the New Auburn football.
And the attrition continues for those "great recruiting classes" brought to you by chiz trooper/luper. I have said many times that I am not interested in any rating of recruiting classes until they have been in the program for two to three years. How do we rate those classes now?
Thanks Phillip. I hate to hear this but I hope this young man well in future endeavors. WDE
kick 'em in the ass, big blue.
Alabama fans love Alabama football
Auburn fans love Auburn University
"There's no doubt, we're going up."
Sad to see him go. Hope he takes care of this issues.
PS. You have got to like/dislike the social media. It seems like people always find out about news like this before it is even officially reported. Phillip was saying yesterday about an Auburn spokesperson telling him that Florence is still on the team even as some people on the board were saying that he has left the team.
I'm not gonna jump down your throat like others BUT...(kidding). I believe it was something along the lines of he wasn't digging the hard work, the death provided him with a reason and he took it. I'm not saying he shouldn't have either. Apparently it was a "mutual" decision, his to find any excuse to miss practice/workouts, the coaches to let him be the one to decide. Wish him the best and my sympathies to his loved ones for the recent loss.

Did someone in Erique's family recently pass away? I guess I missed that.
Alabama delenda est.
