  1. At some point we need patience to rebuild the program. If not under CBH then who? CBH is being judged by his ability to win with the leftovers from Gus. I think we should, at least, give him the opportunity to succeed or fail with his players and his staff.

  2. Hiring a coach with some pedigree is something we all want. Look at UAT. They are a coaching mill that churns out coaches and doesn't miss a beat. It's part of the "system". We are at a disadvantage, mainly, because AU doesn't recruit itself and doesn't have an established pipeline to the NFL. Building that type of success, from where we are now, takes time. CBH has a vision and hiring a quality recruiter and solid OC with a head on his shoulders is paramount to his ability to remain employed. That said, what candidate checks most, if not all, the boxes? We have a short list of guys who check one or the other. I'm not overly impressed with this list. I'm hoping he hits a homerun. I like some of the things I've seen from CBH.

    I saw nothing Lebby did that matched Harsin. Are their offensive philosophies similar at all? 

    IMHO CBH is a winner. He's seems like the type of guy that is willing to make decisions based on what works. Unlike Malzahn, he seems to have the ability to adapt or change his offensive philosophy. That was his predecessor's downfall.

    OP is right and I think things are in the process of changing.  I will not be surprised if 5-10 years from now players are fully professional.  No, they wont be millionaires, but I suspect NCAA will allow some sort of fiscal compensation.

    I am all for it.  If they are getting paid, that puts an end to "opting out" and everything that goes with that.

    Interesting point. However, some players will still opt out due to the possibility of an injury and missing out on the millions offered by the NFL.

    Why are Auburn coaching changes so messy and fraught with anxiety? If $10+ mil was being spent in January...followed by equal 4 year payments..one would think their would be alignment on the next coach. Seriously..1 fire Gus 2 identify and lock in replacement. 3 Announce new coach. Appear and act competent...not JABA. 

    Unless, for whatever reason, the replacement wants to wait until after the early signing period.

    Gus will be HC at least through 2021. JMHO 

    I'm still in denial, like a kid waking on Christmas morning only to find out Santa brought him an Atari instead of a PS5. The only gift Santa has for AU this year is a high school bus with four flat tires and a blown engine. Guess I'll be playing asteroids for the next twelve months...
