Pat Forde of Yahoo sports and the nit wit Jesse Palmer of ESPN both this morning tabbed Auburn as the 3rd most desireable job behind Tennessee and Arkansas. Seems the national view is we are a second tier program at this time. We may need to temper our excitement at the possibility of bringing in a top tier coach. Maybe its a Strong/Malzahn race after all. I think our disfunctional athletic department will keep us from landing a big name. Sucks for us.
I've got too much Auburn in me to act like bammer trash.
Way to many trolls on this site lately. Makes me want to discontinue my subscription.
Seriously, don't take me too serious.
Of the traditional 6 SEC powers -- UAT, AU, LSU in the west, UF, UGA, UT in the east -- Auburn indeed has the toughest road to success, sharing a state with another one of the 6 and facing an at best ambivalent in-state media. We do have more recent success than UT, and there is more high school talent close by. Arkansas remains difficult to recruit to.
I'd put Auburn on par with UT right now, with Arkansas slightly behind. Like always, whoever we pick will have to work harder than our competition to get equal results.
