Thanks for finally getting out a sledgehammer.....

Setting a high bar saves a ton of grief later.
This is the most logical thing I've heard and seen posted by anyone in over a month on any message board. I've try to explain this very concept to people but somehow they cannot see past Tuscaloosa to determine what kind of coach we should hire. I clearly remember when Florida hire Urban Myer and a lot of SEC media and fans were all saying he couldn't win there. They were all wrong. Good coaches can win at any level given the talent and opportunity.
We won a BCS Championship with a coach that was 5-19 when we hired him. Yes we had Cam, Urban had Tebow and Saban had a whole host of players. That's the way it works. Auburn can win with Patterson, Petrino, Malzhan, Smart, etc. We have a strong program and most coaches, even Tubs could manage and run a successful program at Auburn and he was at Ole Miss and had never won big as a HC.
We will be fine with whomever we hire from the "list". Great post. I could not agree more.

There you go again, jadennis, posting facts and stuff. Very excellent information and I concur 100%!
This should be put in prose form and titled The Auburn Hire Desiderata.
Great info. Thx!
Thank you Jade!!!! I concur 100%!!!
And because Auburn men and women believe in these things, I believe in Auburn and love it.
