    Why in the world would that be the case?

    Jay Jacobs just sounds dumb.

    I find this hard to believe. Their defense was horrible this year, so why would they keep him? Besides, the new incoming head coach will make those decisions.

    I agree. That makes no sense but it has been the Barn Way in the way they do things.

    Tim Jackson is no longer apart of the football program.

    They believe Van Gorder can build a Sabanesque defense if given the time to recruit the talent he had when UGA was whacking folks around during Richt's early years. AU has no back 7, and the talent they do have in the line carries questionable character and effort. They believe Van Gorder is the guy to rebuild from the ground up, or so the story goes.

    If he lets pornstache decide who the next coach will be, he is. They need to fire the whole bunch, hire a new head coach and let him pick the staff.

    Look at Ted Roof this season. His defense is much better than it was at Auburn. If Van Gorder is allowed to stay, I think he could do well. He doesn't have the players, and he's publicized that quite a bit.

    I can't feel bad for an AU coach, that cheated his way to a national title both blatantly and unrepentantly. I will give my sympathies to any staff members who've lost their jobs that weren't making 6 figures a year to work in that department.

    The fact that Jay Jacobs still has his job when almost every sport at AU is in the tank proves that they still don't get it on the plains. Jacobs should have been fired months ago so they could already have a new AD in place to go after there next coach.

    I hope they hire Petrino, they deserve each other and Saban don't lose to Petrino.
