OK, so has more incentive to lie here?Sources deny a podcast claim from the former Alabama and NFL quarterback that the Auburn head coach is out at end of the season.www.al.com
So, the man who told AJ "in confidence" is ranting about him talking about this on Twitter. He's mad that AJ betrayed his confidence but completely forgets that he betrayed someone else's confidence by telling AJ. Rules for thee but not for me I suppose. I 100% believe that Harsin knows he done at Auburn. I also think Auburn already knows who they want to hire, and if they hire the AD that is rumored down here, then my suspicions might just come to fruition.OK, so has more incentive to lie here?
How is McCarron served by a lie, particularly since his school benefits the longer Harsin stays there?
I can absolutely see Auburn doing this, although Terry Bowden left them holding a very heavy bag when that happened in 1998. Then again, he was coming off a rather successful five-year run, too; Harsin isn't.
I realize there are a few Auburn fans who see conspiracies behind every tree and who actually have convinced themselves AJ did this "cuz he's a-fred uh us beaten im 'n' iz team!" But seriously - how could this have stirred up more of a hornet's nest than already exists there?
I can see why Auburn would lie; I cannot see one good reason why AJ would. Some yutz on Twitter today said the only thing AJ knew with certainty was how quick he could run from the field to the sideline at JHS. I told that ole boy AJ also knew how many times in a row an Auburn coach had to give up 49 points to Alabama to get fired, which is two (2011-2012).
I don't really argue that point, I just thought some of the back and forth Twitter was hilarious on McCarron and everything else.Ehhhhhhh we're arguably a top 15 program all time by most metrics. SEC likely top third.
True.Also 1989 is a pretty arbitrary cutoff. We had some success under Dye.
Maybe arbitrary, but eminently defensible,. With the 1990 hiring of Stallings, 1989 marks the end of the era in which Auburn should have been expected to outperform its previous 25 years: the final Bryant years, followed by the Perkins dalliance, and finally the Curry debacle.Also 1989 is a pretty arbitrary cutoff.

Why any cutoff at all?Maybe arbitrary, but eminently defensible,. With the 1990 hiring of Stallings, 1989 marks the end of the era in which Auburn should have been expected to outperform its previous 25 years: the final Bryant years, followed by the Perkins dalliance, and finally the Curry debacle.
"We're a basketball school....I mean a volleyball school...no, wait.... I mean an equestrian school....I'm so confused....."True.
The going joke now is how many Auburn fans discovered in the past two weeks that Auburn has a volleyball team now that they're good and winning while the football team is, well, we'll see.
