For the people who oppose BP because of his past mistakes, the Bible says he without sin shall cast the first stone. I don't see any of us throwing any rocks. He made a mistake and owned up to it and asked for forgiveness. The bible says again that if you do not forgive your fellow man, do not expect the Lord to forgive you. So the holier than thou folks who think BP is a bad hire because of his past sins, need to dust off their bibles and open them up and read them a little. People make mistakes. But it's people like BP who are in the public eye that have those mistakes scrutinized at such a high level. We've all made mistakes and again the Bible says in God's eyes all sins are equal. Sin is sin. We are going to hire our next football coach, not the preacher at our local church. I think the right person is the coach with the best resume who is available. That should be who gets hired. Nothing more and nothing less. WDE.
The Bible also says "by their fruits you shall know them." His fruits clearly indicate that he is not trustworthy.
Auburn from day one.
Auburn and BP can be good for each other. The Auburn family can heal the BP wound that it had some part in causing. If Auburn had left him alone in 2003 he might not have run from Louisville (which had to be toxic) to Atlanta. Atlanta has always been a train wreck and many, many, many College coaches have run back to college following a stint in the Pros. Arkansas was a good job to take following his departure from Atlanta. Stop...............................................................Now think............................. to this point in time would you think CBP would have been a good hire in 2009?
What happened last summer is sad, but it is time for new beginnings.
I know of an individual who ran a school, had an affair with a subordinate, broke up two families, yet today they have do outstanding things for the community. They are active in their church and they have been happily married for 30 years. These things happen people. We all have committed some kind of sins that if it was not for forgiveness from someone we might not be what we are today. It is up to God and JC to forgive CBP when he leaves this earth. It is up to people to start the forgiveness here.
"you're so vain, I'll bet you think this post is about you, don't you? Don't you?"
My post was not indicating he was or was not the man for the job. My point was instead of judging his indiscretions instead to judge his body of work as a football coach. I've seen BP win at programs with far less assets available than he would have at Auburn. But the point about his image being damaged with recruits, I recall Nick Saban saying over and over again that he wasn't going to leave the Dolphins and the next day he was the coach at Alabama. On top of that he's never spent more than 5 years at any job, again it doesn't appear to be hurting him with recruiting. I think BP should be judged by what he's done as a coach in regards to this job. Recruits do not care about the morals of a coach - for the most part. They care about going to play for a coach in which they can win for and who can get them to the next level. Want an example of recruits having the final say? Look at the guy who committed to Bama on TV last year and his mom was like all pro LSU. Looks like the kid made the final choice. The parents do not play nearly as big a role in this as some would think. I know the Callaway thing with his dad basically pushing him to Bama, but for the most part the recruits probably make up their own minds and their parents get on board with it. So if a kid wants to come to Auburn to play for BP or whoever is the next coach, most parents will be all for whatever their child wants.
