Just read this article from Chris Low on espn.com and considering Auburn's situation and now what seems to be a growing situation for Tennessee, in just trying to find someone to take the job. It got me thinking, are we seeing the beginning of a long downturn in the "health"/stability/success of both of these programs?
Auburn: I don't need to go into all the details of what's going on down there. They've been hashed and re-hashed on this board for over a year now. Their program appears to be in a very unstable and chaotic state right now. As Jess pointed out in his latest article, there are absolutely NO signs of Auburn slowing down the recruiting machine in Tuscaloosa to allow them to close the obvious gap that Bama has created.
Tennessee: They seem to have good talent sprinkled throughout the roster but no depth and absolutely no vision or leadership on where the program is going. It looks like that perception has filtered out into the coaching market as well. Will they have to "settle" and bring in a coach that will continue the trend they've been on for the last three to four years?
Any thinkers on the board this morning with some opinions?
