What former AU players of the sport now coach at Auburn?
Like John Pawlowski? Tony Barbee? Lebo? Those guys fit the bill. I love how you people put restrictions on things, they either need to have ties or need to not have ties. There is no set formula... We have one head coach in the major sports that coached here before and judging by everything we have seen since his hire he seems to be doing things we all like. Of the ones from outside we just fired baseball, basketball sucks, womens bball was meh. Why you guys have such a ridiculous complex about not hiring Auburn people is beyond me. I don't care if they are from here, Alabama, Reykjavik, Moscow or wherever, I just want someone who can win here. Maybe that is a person with ties to Auburn, maybe it is someone without them, probably a couple from each circle so quit crying about pointless stuff.
Fearless and true.
For those of you that didn't agree with Coach P recruiting jr college players, Calvi admitted on his weekly radio show yesterday that he did not have the patience to develop younger kids and signed jr college players at South. I don't know if he meant this year or consistently. He seems to be a good recruiter and has been in the SEC as a pitching coach in the past. Whoever makes the decision is far more knowledgeable than me, but anyone will have faults. We just need to support whoever is chosen.

For what its worth Dunn recruits to the 2nd highest scholastic university in the state. Not an easy task. Considering this he has done an excellent job. As for discussions of recruiting JUCO players Coach Tanner claims that the oldest most mature team wins over youngest talent. JUCO players are instrumental. Calvi or Dunn would be my choice.

No connections or insider information, just a simple prediction....it will be Mark Calvi!

I like Dunn, Thompson, & Calvin equally...just predicting Calvin to get the job, based on his experience at S. Carolina..both as a recruiter & coach. Thompson has had similar success too, but he's still coaching this year....any will be fine w/me.
