It's not really bothering me because as Alabama fans we can get overly excited about our own players and team too. Especially coming off of or going through down times.The level of tolerance for contrived, self-manufactured aub hype astounds me
How many of you actually read the article?
Not much in that article disparaging AU. "I couldn't get on the field and wasn't enjoying myself!"JF III was not having fun on the fambly farm, lost some love for the game...
Yes, I know...Not much in that article disparaging AU. "I couldn't get on the field and wasn't enjoying myself!"
I don't fault him at all for leaving, and I hope he does well under Kiffin, but I'm not heartbroken he's left the program. Trussville kid Noah Igbinoghene is expected to fill the speedy-guy-in-the-slot/KR role nicely.
So Clint Myers has abruptly stepped down as Head Softball coach?
Anybody say "trickle up"?
A lot of uneasy folks on the Plains right now.
We'll see how your perspective changes, when you hit 65.Less than eight weeks after Myers, 65, agreed to a three-year contract extension through 2023, pending approval by Auburn's Board of Trustees, the school announced his retirement Wednesday night.

His son resigned abruptly midseason. That, along with AU having scrubbed his coaching profile in a hurry, means he was likely participating in some, uh, extra coaching, so to speak.What's the scoop on the softball coach and son? Pretty abrupt decision to retire just after you signed a contract extension. Something doesn't pass the smell test.

Rumors were widespread around campus for a significant period of time about Corey's coaching clinic. All the players knew.His son resigned abruptly midseason.

Clint's motives are pretty much unknown. Could be his son's screw up has taken a real toll on him, could be he's just exhausted and wants to enjoy retirement. Who really knows that this point? My money is on the former though..
