Well lets see how you hit the ground coach.

A "Boom" from me too!!!
Great news. Welcome home RG......expect this will help with all the defensive recruits, but want to comment that we need to support efforts with Dee, Carl, Tashawn and Rueben. These young men have every right to have been disappointed and want to look around until CGM had some names in place. They all have NFL potential and they need to know that they will have coaches in place that will be able to coach them up for that next step. The "pull back" from each is really a mature move not emotional as they have to look to their futures. I applaud each for that, but now with RG in place - and possibly The Rock - I would suspect this will strengthen each of their commitments - including Rueben (he will be back - we love him and he is part of the AU family). Again, let's support our recruits for staying with us through some very difficult times and quit questioning their actions - they were doing the right thing for the time period. Remember that those fine folks from the other school were name slinging all over Rueben, Carl and Dee earlier when they had some issues. Those young men know that and will factor that in to their decisions. Now time to tighten all down and finish the recruit class strong......BE POSITIVE, EMBRACE THESE GREAT YOUNG MEN - WDE
WOW, what a great early Christmas present for the Auburn Family! Welcome Home Coach Garner!!! WDE!
It's great to be an Auburn Tiger!!!
I'm on the "Gus Bus" and loving the ride!
If you have to ask why I love Auburn so much...never mind
Awesome hire! WAR EAGLE!
And because Auburn men and women believe in these things, I believe in Auburn and love it.

We all know how good GM's offense have been and we are about to see just how strong his defense can be. To have Johnson, Harbison, and now Garner on the same staff is as good of a start as I could have ever imagined.
