  1. Same. I get it...it was a stupid thing to do, but not worth ruining the man's career.
  2. It may seem like a question, but clearly it's not. That's petty. No response required. Everyone agrees it was a bad idea. That's it. There's nothing else.
  3. I didn't ask a question...you won't let it go. Pot meet kettle I guess
  4. You're not a fan of the hire...I get it. He wasn't my 1st choice either, but I'm not willing to beat the man up over 2 overblown dm's. You think that justifies not hiring him, fine, but there's not a candidate out there that hasn't done anything just as stupid or worse.
  5. So sending a dm to a young lady who's carrying a grudge against an AD and football program years after her case has been dismissed is grounds for him to not get hired by Auburn? Seems a little petty you think?
  6. You must've missed where I said this was a terrible, terrible, terrible idea and one that the Head Football Coach of the University should know better than to do. Beyond that, there's nothing there. End of story. If there was something there he wouldn't be at Auburn right now.
  7. He never asked her to explain herself. He said "I dont understand that mentality?". Was his intention to intimidate? I didn't get that from the DM's. Badgering? Sure. Again...it's open to interpretation.
  8. It's open to interpretation. Him saying "I don't understand that mentality" leads me to believe he generally doesn't understand her mindset, but what do I know. 🤷‍♂️
  9. True. Boneheaded thing to do as Head Football Coach, but not that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things.
  10. True. Especially with McGlynn being Cohen's right hand man I figured there was nothing substantial.
  11. First things first...and most important...Terrible, terrible, terrible idea. Unfathomable that he thought as Head Football Coach of Liberty University that he should hit send on that DM. Stupid decision that hopefully he understands was wrong. The kind of decision normally made by teenagers. With that being said, he wasn't disrespectful or bullying. You could tell he seemed to genuinely want to reach out and understand her mindset. He has to understand that while his heart may have been in the right place (protecting his friend and football program), you CANNOT get involved in a legal matter.
  12. Maybe just start out as Run game coordinator/associate head coach. Once he learns the whole offense, then promote to OC. That way he gets an automatic promotion/raise, but also gives room to grow.
  13. I'm not too naive to see that optics from our last 2 HC dismissals hurt our chances with a "splash" hire. Malzahn had to go, but from the outside it looked like we fired a good man who never had a losing season because he couldn't win championships. Harsin was a terrible fit, awful recruiter and from all accounts a douchebag, but from the outside he was a winning coach who the boosters hated and was never given a chance. Because of this our options were severely limited. Freeze is a good coach/excellent fit. He's got some baggage, but at the end of the day I will support him because I support Auburn University and the athletes associated with Auburn University. I don't understand why that's such a hard concept. Hate Freeze all you want, but support the University and players. Welcome Coach Freeze! War Damn Eagle
