Ron...With all of the JUCO players that we are currently recruiting...How will this affect us down the road? I know that Gus is trying to fill holes in the current roster, but im concerned on how this well affect us a few years down the road?

Our program needs a culture change. I'm not so sure Gus is looking at filling holes as much as he wants to bring in some competition to light a fire under some talented players with entitlement issues.

I don't think he thinks we have as many "players" as we think we have.
I don't think JUCO players are the absolute answer to our team's problem, but key JUCO players at let positions can be the difference between a mediocre season and a national championship. Currently we have a few positions which are 'need-now' situation. Can't afford to just develop high schoolers, sometimes we need to take a chance.

We got too many "star" players who are self-proclaimed prima donas. They need to learn that they may have been the baddest thing in HS, but this is definitely a whole new ballgame. There are quite a few big boys in the SEC and just saying their name isn't going to scare anyone, but rather rev up the challenge. If they are not able to answer the bell, so to speak, then they need to go to a FCS school where their talents might, just might, be on the same level as other players. I like the idea of JUCO players who want to play. Now all they have to do is make the "grades" and I mean that literally to be an Auburn Tiger. Let's see if they can help us, and if they can measure up academically. This is Auburn and we expect the highest caliber student athlete period. War Damn Eagle.
