    Those stupendous buyouts save coaches jobs when they probably should be lost. You can bet the money boys behind Auburn said no to losing $18 million....for now. Interesting season.

    Talk about a dysfunctional relationship. You know Harsin will have one foot out of the door for the rest of his career. If he has much of a career left....

    This media circus should set Auburn's recruiting back for several years. With no "southern" experience in recruiting on the current staff, this seems to be an uphill battle for Coach Harsin going forward.

    Hope things work out.......Nah, not really.

    Auburn is a mess. Considering they paid out $20M and fired the ONLY head coach (Gus Malzahn) and team that has beaten a Nick Saban Bama team 3 times it's no real surprise that the Harsin debacle is playing out like it is...expect more of the same losing formula in 2022.

    No matter how hard they looked the Auburn good ol boys couldn't find a reason to fire him with cause. The booster network at AU is what is wrong w/AU. Tough to succeed in the SEC when you don't have recruiters that have the necessary connections to build committable relationships.

    If I heard correctly, the only staff Harsin has left are the coaches he brought from Boise. They’re his only loyal allies on campus. Harsin was successful at Boise because of the opponents his teams faced each week. Those same teams in the SEC would have struggled to win three conference games per season in the west.

    Now, the same staff recruiting at a similar level is supposed to win at a championship contending level? Auburn has some outstanding fans, but if they believe that, they’re delusional!

    It takes some form of guarantee to pry a successful coach from a program he built. I wouldn't leave either without a guarantee, especially if you're only giving me a year to put your program on course to compete with BAMA and UGA.

    That being said, AUB's Administration and Boosters have exposed themselves as egotistical control freaks. In doing so, they chopped off the legs of a 1st year coach and basically destroyed any chance he or AUB had at any success in the near future or at least as long as Harsin is HC at AUB.

    Even if Harsin were to leave tomorrow, AUB's chance of finding an SEC worthy coach, that is as good or better than Harsin, is zip...nada...zero. That's why they kept Harsin, at the end of the day. If he had been fired or quit, they could possibly be right back in this position next year.

    They're going to fire him toward the latter half of next season, when available quality coaches comes more in focus. The new coach will have time to put together a decent recruiting class. And, depending on the name, there will be an air of excitement surrounding the new hire and all the signs will be put out, letting everyone know that the Admin, Board and Boosters are "in alignment". LOL...Same old game...different name.

    Question is...who would want to coach or play in that Soap Opera-come-to-life. Constant drama to go along with all the other demands. How could you pass that up? LOL
