We have a 5 star JC DT who wants to come to the plains and our academic elitists have pushed him to Ole Miss instead. Do you think the Ivy league is applauding us today or that BSPN is gonna slap us on the back? We need to give our head coach every opportunity to compete evenly in the toughest conference in the land. If we're gonna try to be Harvard or Yale let's just go Division III and play little boy football for fun. Dang right it matters to me!
At least you aren't overreacting.
This reminds me of the idea that we had to hire Petrino or it meant we wholeheartedly endorsed winning no more than eight games for the next decade.
We lost one kid because he didn't have the right classes to get in. How on earth does that equate to us suddenly having the academic requirements of Harvard or Yale and that we should leave the SEC to play Ivy League schools?
Does it suck? Sure does.
Should we change things and cease from having academic requirements for our athletes? No.
Auburn from day one.
I'm going to disagree. I'm ok with our academic standards
All Auburn All the Time!
"you're so vain, I'll bet you think this post is about you, don't you? Don't you?"
I Believe Auburn and Love IT...4 Life!
You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
Nothing whatsoever to do with academic elitism. Simply need to demonstrate that you can be successful with the academic rigor that exists at AU. This does not come down to one class, it comes down to the two years of JUCO and high school performance. If by now he cannot show that he can meet our minimum standard, we do him no favors putting him in a program where he will likely fail. We are light years away from Ivy and frankly, it is just not that hard so if he has not cut if so far, there is no reason to believe that he would be successful. Best to wish him well and send him to a place where he can be academically successful. Ole Miss is far enough downstream from Auburn academically to be suitable for him.
