One thing that I have noticed is that GC never developed a great LB while he was HC. Which is unusual because Auburn has always had great linebackers, no matter who the HC was. Dye had Kevin Greene, Quentin Riggins, Aundrey Bruce and many others. Bowden had Takeo Spikes. Tubbs had Dansby. Who did GC have? I would say Josh Bynes, but he was recruited by Tubbs and started as a freshman under Tubbs. I would give most of the credit to Tubb. It's amazing because GC was a linebacker in college and yet our LB play was always poor.
No position developed under the last staff. I don't know why the lack of linebackers suprises you. The good news is we have coaches now that should be able to develop all of the talent the last staff brought in. If we can close this class strong (and I think we will) we should be in a good position both talent and depth wise and the future is going to be really bright. A lot of people that have written our program off are going to be suprised very soon.
