Since CGC has been our head coach, we all know and have heard how he has developed a true family environment here. So many teams claim to have it, but what our coaches have established here IS the real thing. When recruits come here they see its true and it pulls at them to be apart of it. This is mentioned in almost all of Brian's recruiting stories. For the most part, this has excelled AU's recruiting efferts to two back to back top 5 classes. However, there were the few recruits (or parents) looking for something else...the something else that was being sold to them was the idea of "If you go to my school, I have the system/coaches in place to best prepare you for the pros." How many recruits can yall think of recently that after they left AU they fell in love with the family atmosphere, but later committed to another school (most not by their own accord) because of the illusion that particular school was selling them on.
Well folks, with the hires of BVG and Loeffler, AU can now boast it has two coaches with NFL exp. Our OC has coached 6 QBs that went on to the NFL. What QB recruit in the country wouldnt be excited to work for this guy?...hell all he does is send QBs to the NFL. It is obvious that Loeffler will get you ready for the NFL. BVG needs no introduction because recruits know with his exp as a DC in the NFL, he knows what it takes to get to there.
What I am trying to say is, our family atmoshpere is still as stronge as ever, and after recruits see how well our offense and defense plays this year, the recruits will realize we also have the system/coaches to definately get them ready for the NFL. We will be...strike that...we are offering everything a recruit could want. If I were these other schools...I would be scared $h!tless...they better start developing some family atmosphere of their own because AU got them beat on every level.
Brian, you can back me up with some more recruiting insite if you like. I'm sure we all would like to hear your thoughts about this subject.
I'm an Auburn man and I'm darn proud of it!
