Nope.  Just because you donate a lot of money doesn't make you a "good Auburn man".  Honestly, I'm freaking tired of the "good Auburn men" trope.  I just want good people running the shop.  And if they were good, then they'd let the AD do his damn job.

There's enough professional people putting their name and reputation on the line out there to understand that this is legit.  And I've been around long enough to have seen this before.  We damn near lost our accreditation while I was in school because of these "good Auburn men" you are here defending.

I didn't say donating money made anyone a good Auburn person.  Look at the names on the BOT.  Look at the names on the committee.  These people are there because they deserve so.  It is easy to be critical because all you have to do is raise a finger and point.  Stand in a trench with your name on the line is different.  This fuss is all over a football coach?

These names have been linked to bs for a decade, at least. I don’t need “first hand sources” to tell me what’s going on. If you think guys like rane and harbert are “good auburn men” just Bc of the “money” they’ve put into the university, then I really don’t know what to tell you.

New guy has a point.    There are some credible posters and sources on the board,  But we are talking about men's lives and reputations here ,  and some posters are playing with it like  they are video game characters ---with very little proof.   

VERY GOOD sources have been wrong, lied to, deceived,   misunderstood or only got part of the story before.  There is no need to bash a man based on so little evidence.  They are not evil.    

Get rid of them? YES!   but just show 'em the door and move on.

There shouldn’t be a committee. The AD should be calling the shots.

Based on things said about guys like lowder, rane, harbert, etc, for over a decade, I really don’t care. They have caused auburn athletics more harm than good over the past decade and enough legit people have come out over the years and said so. I have little sympathy for people as wealthy as they are trying to throw their weight around and failing miserably at it, ultimately punishing the kids that decide to come here

Here here.  Nobody's accusing them of murder or anything.  Rane's reputation will ultimately be as a businessman who made a ton of money, not that he meddled in some football affairs.  Well said Mav.

 I understand.    There is just a lot of hate being thrown around like beads at Mardi Gras.    Auburn is better than that.

Guys, we are going up against a very large machine and a lot of powerful people — we have to do this in a methodical way, if you will just hang tight for a few hours and let this play out the light will come to day.

Any update??

Just don’t see AG ever being able to do that unless he was somehow able to recover from the whole usc thing. But I 100% agree. Think we’ll have to get a new AD unless drastic things happen.

Honestly, he needs to take a stand.  Hire who he wants and pay it out the AD's budget.

What coach in his right mind would walk into this dumpster fire? Burn the damn place down and start over. 

Only way I come in is if I get absolute full control. And the minute a booster steps in my office talking I can slap the you know what out of them. That last part has to be in the contract.

Rane wants to get rid of him and replace with Tim Jackson....try swallowing that

I get all the anger/rah rah let’s drain the swamp attitude, we’re all desperate for change. but...
 

I’m not sure most here are ready to accept the consequences of what they are asking for. All of college athletics is built on funding from boosters and a recruiting network that boosters essentially are responsible for. Auburn, like every other major D1 program, plays the same game. Ousting our biggest financial contributors will not be an overnight fix to the program. Quite the opposite in fact. It’s a long term solution with no guarantee we ever return/reach the level of prominence we all aspire for.
