Auburn Football: Change Must Come Now
Being new to this site, I’m hesitant to jump in the fray, but after the season we’ve endured as Auburn fans, this is the best therapy for me. All of the obvious problems have been well covered by other writers, and at this point, it’s safe to say that changes will indeed be made… the sooner the better. My greatest fear at this point is the changes will not go far enough.
So, just how far should change extend and to whom do we turn for direction to those brighter days we seek? My personal choice… Jimbo Fisher and his entire staff. That answers the HC and staff questions, but that should not be the extent of the changes. We need an AD with a brain and a back-bone!
With the talent already on the roster, any coherent staff could have won 7 games, and the AD must bear some responsibility for creating the circumstances under which this utterly incoherent staff is allowed to operate.
Whatever the behind-the scenes issues may be, there is no excuse for a few staff members creating division in the locker room. They should be fired openly and quickly to maintain control of the program… they were not. JJ created this mess, he needs to go. There are no short-cuts to success; JJ took one, and we are reaping the results of that decision.
Forget the recruits in deciding how to move forward; build a solid program first that doesn’t constantly flirt with NCAA investigations. “If you build it, they will come” My time’s up; I thank you for yours. War Eagle everybody!
