This thread is a disaster, heck hiring and keeping GENE CHIZIK on is a mitigated disaster.
AU will get negative press for donating to a worthy cause. Whatever we do, media reaction should not enter into a decision.
Public perception is a factor in any decision like this and should be. Not the ultimate one but a consideration especially when there are other good options available.
BP has the highest winning % of any coach in the SEC.....

Again, its not, just like others have stated 1 years recruiting class shouldn't be. You make hire who is going to build AU back. If you think BP is that guy, great. If you think he is not, great. Comparing his personal choices and life to his coaching abilities is stupid.
We are already in an unmitigated disaster. The national media hates Auburn anyway. Hire the best proven HC coach with competence on offense available. Petrino is that. That man has been humbled and has a great deal to prove, particularly from a character standpoint. The good Lord forgives and gave me a second chance. Why not him?
When a person is very much going to be the public face of a university, not just the football program, his judgement is part of the equation. If he continually makes questionable personal choices, that has to enter into your decision on hiring. To ignore that you're saying this 1) winning and winning now is my only consideration 2) when this blows up in my face, and it will, I don't care.
it's amazing the amount of unbridled lack of critical thinking on this issue. I hope the people actually making this decision don't decide on important things like most on here seem to, like a horny 16 yr old.
Really? Look at our program
I Believe Auburn and Love IT...4 Life!
You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
