Why would anyone leave TCU to come to Auburn? The purpose of an AD isn't to pander, it's to produce.
Petrino? We still have people on the Petrino train? Am I not mistaken or has Petrino not proven that he would leave Auburn at the drop of a hat at the sign of a better opportunity? You might not mind his character issues, but lots would. It also contradicts who someone like our new AD, Del Conte, would hire.
I'll stop there. It's not really that easy developing a plan, is it? And I'm not saying that to be a smart ass. I'm saying that to say there is a reason why you can't scrap everything and start over.
You grad, bro?
This is for everyone who wants to throw Coack Chizik under the bus. Every one of Auburn’s last four coaches has had years they struggled. Dye had 5-6, 8-4, 8-3,5-6,5-5. Bowden had 8-4 twice and a 1-5. Tuberville had 5-6, 7-5, 8-5,5-7. Chizik has 8-5 twice and a NC. Chizik had to endure the Camgate and all the national negativity that went with it. Half of you wanted to get rid of Coach Roof for the last 2 years the other half wanted to get rid of Gus last year. Chizik hired new coaches less than 8 months ago. They have had at the most 12 good weeks of coaching with the team. Give them a chance. WDE
Pat Dye 12years 99-39-4 70% winning pct.
Terry Bowden 6years 47–17–1 72% winning pct
Tommy Tuberville 10 years 85–40 68% winning pct
Gene Chizik 3 complete years 30-10 75% winning pct
Why? Because it's a step up? It's a move into the biggest, best league there is. I never said he was here to pander but since everyone is stuck thinking that our administration should share their christian beliefs I brought someone to light who has had success as AD of a smaller school.
No Petrino hasn't proven that at all. Since he got to Arky he was looking like he was set and happy there. The NFL wasn't his calling, not everyone can go pro so he came back in not the best fashion but that's it. He left the Falcons and it wasn't a good move but who else has he screwed over? All the things you hate CBP for you condone in CPD. The man is a cancer to our program and should find his way to some place where he no longer impacts AU.
Right on brother, I am with you. Makes them easy to identify
With Petrino his history is in play, sir. He tried to stab Tuberville in the back while at Louisville to take the Auburn job. He constantly demanded more from Louisville, got it, and still left to go to the Falcons. He didn't last with the Falcons for a season and packed up and left for Arkansas. He slept his way out of a job and probably will have kept the job had he not straight up lied about it when asked.
That's the coach you want for Auburn. You might not have a problem with that, but understand many would.
I didn't say I hated anyone or anything....who is CPD? Am I missing something?
CPD=Pat Dye. Petrino didn't try to stab Tubs in the back our administration did when they tried to get CBP. He got offered an NFL job a lot of coaches take that shot. It didn't work out and he comes back to Ark where he has been for several years without the first rumor of him leaving, players were not being arrested, both his Offense and defense got better over the course of several years. Arky without him loses to ULM with him they were ranked 3rd in the country behind only the teams who participated in the NC. All that was done at a school that is historically hard to recruit to. We just see things differently. War Eagle and I hope the decisions are made that ultimately lead to us returning to the NC again very soon.

Chizik isn't at 75% when you add this years games in. I dk why you would cut those out except if you were trying to further an agenda. When taking averages it is common place to throw our the best and worst. If we do that for Chiz he has 8 wins against lesser teams and a lot of blowouts against competition on the same level as we are.
This year isn't complete. I think you want to further your agenda against Chizik. I was pointing out that our last four coaches have had years where they struggled. Give the Chizik and the new coaches a chance.
To say that you don't care what your head coach does in his personal life is just BUTT LOAD STUPID!!!!!!!!
Is it? Would you be fired for having an affair? What about being an alcoholic? Do you support Pat Dye? If so you are simply harboring ill feeling towards CBP for no reason. Supporting it from CDP and acting high and mighty on the other is pretty hypocritical. It may seem that I'm being hypocritical since admittedly I want CBP and want CPD gone, but I don't care that CPD drank etc, I care that he has his fingers all over the program and he is strangling it.
To say that you don't care what your coach does in his personal life is BUTT-LOAD STUPID!!!
The team overachieved in 2009. Cam wasn't there to "motivate" the players.
Yeah, he did better with Tubs players than he has so far with his own. Enter Terry Bowden comparisons. Chizik appears to be recruiting better than Bowden did but he isn't making the talent any better than he found it.
Your outside source.
Petrino has zero credibility with the parents of recruits. Whether that's fair or not is up for debate, but there is no question that parents will not want there kids playing for him.
