Is Aubarn thumbing their collective noses at the NCAA again or is this just more rumor mill taking place?
    An Barn friend of mine said that Trooper and Luper are the only ones from Chizik's staff that they are keeping right now. What is up with that?

    How far-fetched is it that Chizik knew the NCAA was coming for the Barn and wanted to get fired?

    I think he got fired due to bad roster management, player development, and a brain-drain amongst his offensive staff that basically kept them competitive in '09 and '11 as far as the wins column goes.

    I doubt that was why he failed, but the buyout might be in the ballpark. I kinda picture him walking out to his car in Jordan Hare stadium after getting fired with a sinister smile slowly emerging upon his face, the slouched limp transforming into a brisk gait. A la Kaiser Soze at the end of The Usual Suspects.

    The more I think about it, the stronger the similarity between Chizik and Kaiser Soze. You have the unwitting stooge turning the tables on a bunch of unscrupulous miscreants, leaving them in a wake of chaos and destruction while he walks into the sunset with a cool $10M.

    I think it is very unlikely that he wanted to get fired because NCAA violations could eliminate Chizik's buyout agreement, so if that is the case it seems like Chizik would want to keep his job.

    Trooper is still there because he knows where the bodies are buried. He will get a nice fat check to keep his mouth shut.

    Trooper is there because they've got to maintain communication lines with their recruits, even if the coaching situation is up in the air. Imagine the catastrophe if they just canned everyone at the Barn. I will be shocked if the new head coach keeps Trooper around.

    As I understand it, Auburn called the Memphis High School about the altered transcript. I have not seen where AU reported the irregularity to the NCAA. If they did, it was AFTER the altered transcript had been submitted by Auburn to the NCAA clearinghouse. How else could the NCAA have known that two different transcripts existed...the one from Auburn and the one from Notre Dame. i'e' the evidence seems to point that whatever Auburn did, they did it AFTER it was obvious that the altered transcript wouldn't fly.

    I would think that Petrino is desperate enough to agree to keeping BVG, Trooper and Luper. And with that said, look for Petrino on the plains sooner than later.
