    Teammates: Davis made decision to sit out

    That is what got me thinking about this earlier. It doesn't hurt the players, it doesn't hurt the NFL, but it is the school gets "punished". EDIT: How about this.... the NFL has to pay back the scholly money. Since it is spit in the ocean for the NFL, make them pay back all 3 or 4 years worth of scholly $.

    In this senario, I would not have any contracts/ obligations /commitments/ scholarships to anyone else to keep playing. Me not playing will not have a big effectanyone else but me and my family. If anything me not playing would help Buffet.

    LMAO. I was just trying to make up an extreme scenario to enhance my point. I gotta get back to work. Thanks for the entertainment all. Just for the record I DO NOT think schools should make players pay back scholly for sitting out. I love Davis and wish him the best. I was just using him as an example as I played the devils advocate. WDE

    Where do you draw the line between what is OK and what is not for missing games? When does it become "selfish" to not play? You can pull next years scholly, why not have to repay the year you leave the team hanging? Yes, , each young man is responsible for making their decisions, but that doesn't mean there should not be consequences. It should not be a one way street.

    LOL. The more I play devils advocate, the more I am talking myself into this hair brained idea. On a higher level, he is there to entertain you. That is why the school gives him a scholly. To play football, to entertain fans, for the school to make MONEY. Without the fans being entertained there would be no football or schollys. We would lose a lot of other (unentertaining) sports that are held up by football revenue. The good news is there would be no one leaving for the NFL.

    I agree the decision was Davis' to make. BUT.... what if a player decides not to play because he plans on a career using his hands as a musician or something? What if Cam Newton decided he was NOT going to play in the NCG because he had a date that night? Extreme? Yep, but were do you draw the line? How much does the future fate of a team change when players sit out? Lots of other good points in your post.

    It is not just about the scholarship money, it is also about the guy that didn't get the scholly. Although small, loss of revenue from the perception that Auburn is now a 4 loss team, fan unity is down from the loss, coach support would have been much higher with a win. Chances of losing are pretty high when everyone on the team that may get in the NFL sits out. This effects everything to some degree. There are a lot of guys that lay their body on the line for 3 or 4 seasons and still play in bowl games. Some are a lot more valuable than Davis. They risk it all and play in bowl games. He is scared. Scared he will get hurt. Not saying I wouldn't do the same thing, but it is true. It is also not a shot at his manhood. I am sure he is a tough guy, but he left Auburn hanging because he was scared he was going to get hurt, and not be able to play in the NFL. That is a big deal, but the guy has commitments. If he is one of the primary reasons the other players got to the bowl game, could you not say - sitting out was one of the primary reasons we lost the bowl? The loss may not mean anything to some, but it effected Auburn greatly. We have fan unrest. Coaches contracts being nit picked. And no semblance of unity. Winning the bowl game wouldn't have fixed all that, but it would have given us a starting point. Still just trying to stir things up around here. It has been a little boring.

    Why not? If he is worth sooooo much money that he is scared to play, then he should be able to afford to pay back his scholly $. Just trying to make this thread more interesting.

    This aught'ta stir things up ..... We need a new rule: you don't play you payback your scholarship. These kids get are given scholarships to represent the school on the field. If a player is "all about the NFL money" then what is wrong with the school being about the money also? Some guy that works his ass off and gives his ALL for auburn didn't get a scholly so Davis could sit out. Davis is leaving his dues unpaid. He gets a free education, AND tons of exposure to the NFL from Auburn. The best food and living quarters for years. In return he is supposed to represent Auburn on and off the field. He is not supposed to leave Auburn hanging because he is scared. Obviously this pertains to players that are sitting out for the NFL and not health/family/ etc matters. .

    Worth Replacing Gus?

    Malzahn has been a placeholder for the last 4 years. It is sad that Gus has reduced us to accepting him as a placeholder. Time to get rid of him before he puts us further behind. We are Auburn, and we deserve better.

    Who is holding Gus to the fire?

    Selective memory is a strange thing. There is no enigma! Malzahns offense has always sucked. It is boring, unorganized, and more stressful than fun. Yes, even in our championship year. Go back and watch the games. Our best plays were mostly broken plays during the season. We skidded by, by the skin of our teeth. Often looking like a Chinese fire drill (just like last week). If it wasn't for a QB that turns broken plays into 20 yard gains, we would have been 8-4 at best. That is also the reason we went so far with Marshal. There were maybe 4 games were we played like a championship team in both those runs. The rest we looked like last week, but won anyway. Anyone who thought Gus' O was genius had the wool pulled over their eyes. Nothing has changes except the people that believed Gus was a genius debated so hard to prove he was a genius that pride keeps them from admitting to themselves that Gus is a failure. Keeping Malzahn around will put us further behind. The emperor has no cloths. p.s. Gus didn't win us a NC, Chizik did. As much as people like to cut on Chizik around here, it is the truth. You can say it was Gus all you want, but the fact of the matter is Chizik was head coach. Gus didn't win a NC. All these fans that hung their hat on Gus are deperate to place blame somewhere else. First it was Chizik meddling, then Pat dye, then JJ, who know who will get the blame for meddling, but no matter who gets the blame, the offense still looks the same. This goes back to when he coached under Nutt. The same gimmicks, the same plays, just different proportions. The only thing that makes the offense run is an exceptional QB (that someone else coached) that can turn broken plays into 20 yard gains. Without it he is dead in the water.
