And because Auburn men and women believe in these things, I believe in Auburn and love it.

Hey, if he wants to look around look around, if Auburn is not in his heart then he doesn't need to be at Auburn. Of course the whole tattoo thing now looks a bit silly.

You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
Exactly. I think Trooper undermined GC during the season and had a lot to do with the lack of discipline that we are hearing about.

We will be fine. Everything happens for a reason. Recently, our highly recruited guys have turned out to be thugs and divas for the most part. I trust our new direction. Malzahn will put points on the board being able to run his sytem with no restirctions like Chizik put on him, especially in our 2011 season. Our defense will take a year, maybe two to get back into dominate shape/contintion plus he got the best in the business running our defense now minus maybe Saban...

Well enjoy that Tat Reuben. Sorry you loved Trooper more than you loved Auburn. Maybe you should have gotten a Trooper Tat.
Good Luck in wherever you land. Your a phenomenal player, but make sure you work hard on the books too. Its a wonderful thing your ability has afforded you so don't screw it up.

If he plans to wait until Signing Day then we'll just have to "re-recruit" him. I don't believe that just because we're not in his current top 5 that we will stop recruiting him - plus, the young man is probably very POd that we canned someone who he was very close to - considering BF plays with TTs son and they are very close. Troop and BF's relationship is a unique one in that they have a lot of contact with each outside of "Auburn recruiting".
At that age, they don't realize that coaches at the college level the assistant coaches continued employment is usually dependent on the success of HC and coordinators. In his eyes, he probably sees "Auburn" as firing someone whom he is very very close to so he takes it personally. He'll learn soon enough that coaching changes are just part of the business. I give our coaches as good a chance as any to recruit him back to AU once he's gotten over his anger.
FWIW, when the sports talk radio stations here in ATL were talking about an interview that BF did and how he discussed that if TT left, then he probably would to, he also said that TT told him that it didn't matter if he (TT) were at AU or not, that he should still go there - or words to that affect. In other words, don't commit to me - commit to AU. Also, I wouldn't be surprised if TT doesn't quit recruiting him to go to AU - unless TT finds another position immediately - he could find himself back up in TN - who knows.
It's too early to get upset about his status, yet - and even if he does sign somewhere else, I refuse to get upset. I have had enough of players that sign with us but aren't really committed to us. I want players like Kyle Frazier - who said when Gus left, that he committed to AU, not a coach.

I was going to put a witty joke here, but I forgot bama fans still use picture books. So I thought I'd expedite the process for you...
