    Correct me if I'm wrong...

    but don't we get to determine what schools we release players to, if we even release them at all? Isn't that why Wes Johnson didn't go to Kentucky? If these guys transfer, we could at least stop them from coming with Gene, unless they want to transfer twice, which is absolutely idiotic (but wouldn't surprise me right now)...

    Yes we can stop them, unless they go w/o scholarships and pay their own way at Auburn for a year. That's what the Iowa wrestlers who Tom Brands stole from Va. Tech had to do. As I recall, some of their parents tried to file a lawsuit against Va. Tech for not releasing their kids from their committment. Hopefully Chizik is honorable enough to leave all his players here, or things could get ugly quick.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    I hope so too, but I'm not holding my breath about any great expectations of Chizik's honor.

    Auburn is in the SEC. Something tells me they would do ok if they had to "pay their own way."

    I don't have any expectations either, but I'll hold out hope until he shows us otherwise.
