More On Auburn University’s Athletic Department’s Stupid Leaders

…or: You Made Your Bed, Now Lie In It.

Right between The Boston Globe and The San Francisco Chronicle you’ll find that The Dallas Morning News is the 13th most circulated newspaper in the United States. That’s a lot of readers. Over 1/3 of a million.

And, Jay Jacobs, Jay Gouge, et al, you’ll find that a respected columnist, Jean-Jacques Taylor has called for high school athletes to boycott attending Auburn University in today’s column.

I don’t see how you missed the memo, boys, but recruits make a difference in minor league (re: college) football. The better the recruits, the better your team. It really isn’t that hard.

And, because of your stupid choice of Gene Chizik to be our head football coach, a respected columnist just told 1/3 of a million readers, PLUS whoever picks this up on the national media, told recruits NOT to go to Auburn.


You might want to stop former revered coaches from sending us letters trying to get us on board to support the new coach. It takes more than a PR campaign to gloss over the reality that you goofed this up, boys.

Something tells me it’s going to be a tough few years at The Loveliest Village on the Plains.
