    Chip Lindsey Discusses Leaving Auburn

    I would also add that (contrary to everything being just peachy between Gus and Chip), based on the product that we saw on the field, Chip and Gus (and maybe other offensive coaches) were, at a minimum, not always on the same page. That doesn't mean that they didn't try to make it work and don't have respect for one another, or that any of them are bad coaches, but a lot of the time it just wasn't effective. It was clear in the bowl game that things ran much smoother with Gus taking over the play calling. Gus claims that the difference was due entirely to the players executing better, but it seems to me that the communications from the sideline was much smoother and coherent.

    Chip Lindsey Discusses Leaving Auburn

    I don't think he's lying, but the reason one might lie in that situation is that you don't say anything in public that might be considered disparaging to your former employer or colleagues. Don't burn bridges unnecessarily, because you never know when doing so could come back to bite you.

    Horton reassigned to off field role

    Didn’t you know? All of our former coaches and players are lurkers on this message board.

    Asa Martin (update transferring)

    What do y'all think would be a reasonable compromise between the current transfer rule in which special circumstances (such as a family hardship) are required in order for the sit-out to get waived and going to a system where a player can transfer at any point without having to sit out? Should a player be able to transfer to another program mid-season and be eligible to play for the new team immediately? Should a player be able to transfer and not sit out a year if there is a coaching change it his current school? Head coach only? What if it's his position coach or the OC/DC?

    I believe bigger programs will absolutely try to scavenge smaller programs for their best players if the sit-out rule is eliminated, but I don't think Prosch is a good example. He was from Alabama and transferred to be closer to his sick mother. .

    The sour grapes is related to why he's transferring, not why he's applying for waiver of having to sit out. Agree that there's no harm in him trying to get it waived.

    I don't have a strong opinion one way or another on the transfer rule. I think if the sit-out rule were eliminated, college football would probably look a lot more like college basketball on a much bigger scale. It would be pretty dizzying to try to keep up with what a team is going to look like from year to year. It seems that high school players in basketball tend to be more ready to play at the college level than in football (at least at some positions in football like OL and QB), so it would be interesting to so how it would unfold.

    I agree that staff made a mistake, and it's hard to fathom how such a mistake could be made at a top-flight collegiate football program. Nevertheless, I don't see that Asa has much of a case to justify having his post-transfer sit-out year waived..

    Horton reassigned to off field role

    Someone suggested that moving Horton to an off-field position was done to allow him to take on some of Gus' responsibilities (that maybe Suddes was handling) to allow Gus to focus more on on-field coaching and play calling. Do you know if there is any truth to this?

    Asa Martin (update transferring)

    Based on my understanding of the current transfer rules, I don't see that either Fields or Martin have a valid basis for waiving the requirement to sit out a year. An isolated racist comment or incompetence in implementation of the new redshirt rule don't have anything to do with player hardship or a family situation that warrants waiving the sit-out requirement. Fields (and other minority players) might have a case if he could provide evidence that racism was a prevalent part of the culture at UGA and that he was being mistreated as a result of that. Both of these cases seem to be more an issue of sour grapes that things didn't unfold the way the respective players wanted them to. It's a different debate as to whether the rules for transfer should be changed.

    Reminds me of something I saw in a documentary several years ago about Jerry Rice and how much he challenged himself in his offseason training regimen.

    QB Tyree Jackson looking to transfer

    Your post seems to imply that the PTB know what they're doing and are on the same page. I don't think that's the case. I think there are at least 2 or 3 factions behind the scenes (and, to some extent, in front of the scenes) trying to take Auburn in different directions. I'm not sure the folks trying to pull the strings are any smarter than the rest of us - they just have more money.
