Many an Auburn fan used to blame Bobby Lowder for every awful decision that the PTB made. And maybe they were right.I will say that I am not sure how much of the fault of this team is Harsin's fault. He may have torpedoed his career by choosing to go to Auburn, but Auburn has absolutely set him up to fail.
This is the result of what happens when powerful boosters do not get their way. The boosters at Auburn did not want Harsin, but the athletic department chose Harsin anyway. Boosters have then done everything possible to make his life miserable and the athletic departments life miserable until they get their way
again, what a toxic environment
But didn't Lowder lose his hands-on control years ago?
And isn't Auburn STILL a dumpster fire of bad decisions?
It seems to me that every bad decision made that Lowder didn't do sorta proves they're an even bigger mish-mash of inmates running the asylum than the REC ever dreamed of being.
