Still have such a good recruiting class? This season has been awful for them and yet they are keeping all these recruits? Perhaps selling playing time? I'm not sure but I am stunned that a team that is 2-8 and hasn't won a SEC game this season has a recruiting class as good as theirs. Chizik may suck at coaching but it looks like he's got the idea of our to recruit in the $EC.

It is quite amazing how great of a class they still have despite their on field performance. My guess is Chizek is saying whatever the recruits want to hear because he knows if there is any chance at all (however minimal it is) for him to keep his job it depends on this class. If he gets canned I would imagine the class falls apart real quick.
Well, I understand that for sure... as I hinted with the $EC comment, but I still can't believe the NCAA can't find anything dirty with Chizik and Auburn.... seems fairly obvious to me.
This is a really good question Klein. Does the recent National Championship out weight the current season's failure? Auburn does has a historical pull, and I think it's felt a lot more in SEC country, but Chizik is on a really hot seat, so players have to worry about that. Then again, it is a long time until February, and it might be my bias speaking, but it seems that SEC early commits tend to vacillate a lot more than kids who commit to northern schools.
I will add though, a lot of the players they have committed are from AL. The gem of the bunch is even from Auburn. The kids from NJ and GA are the ones I would worry about, but the others might be like kids from Columbus or Hastings who would play at NU no matter who the coach is.

Kids in the south will do anything to play in the $EC, its hard to make them understand there are other opportunities out there. They think they invented football and win every year since
They are buying it so hard that they ignore the situation auburn is in.

Yep. I saw a post on a random article I found talking about the Bama loss. A person said he thinks the national title should be Bama v LSU no matter what their records are because they are the two best teams no question. I don't think they know what is going on outside of the south

Which lends to the mindset that I spoke of months ago to ppl outside of NE.
Ya better NebrASKa somebody!!!
I don't know, beyond the obvious ($$$). But MAN would I love to poach some of their DL recruits. Carl Lawson is the best DE prospect in the country, IMO.
I agree... To be honest Nkemdiche lost a bit of value for me his senior season. I think he's still a FANTASTIC player, but he's no Clowney either.
