My thoughts are simply we would be better off without him.
You have to break up the gang of friends every now and then. Look at Tubbs' last year. He had a coaching staff full of buddies he did not want to fire. The result? They all slacked off on recruiting and we saw it on the field. We had to fire and higher an offensive coordinator in the same season. The OC didn't work because it was him versus the gang.
IMO jay jacobs hired chizik mainly because he was friends and knew he was a good guy. NOT based on his head coaching experience.
General +1. Thanks for your thoughts on this.
JMC, sorry for hijacking your thread.
This was probably the most civilized discussion I have ever had on this board. +1
He hired a 5-19 coach on a 10 game losing streak and look where we are. He needs to resign.
They called down the the thunder and now they got it. Tell them hell's coming! You hear?! Hell's coming with me!
No worries. i was just as curious regarding the angst against him. People have their opinions but facts are facts regarding the relative health of Auburn athletics under Jacobs. Had he not made this move, I would be just as angry, but he took the right step.
Everyone cheered Barbee when he was hired.
I took my boys to the Regionals in baseball (which Auburn hosted) 2 years ago and believe Auburn is on the right track in that sport.
I played golf with Nick Clinard (AU golf coach) and know this guy is super solid. I know not many people really care about golf, but they had an incredible 2012 and competed in the Nationals.
I also am not trying to be a Jay Jacobs apologist but I don't get the bitterness...
Until he proves otherwise with a great coaching hire (or his committee proves otherwise) - he is a cancer to Auburn athletics. If he is a cat he is on his 9th life for sure. If we end up with a mediocre hire, I will lead the parade of town people coming to burn down his castle...so to speak.
