I am happy he doesn't delve into the false made up rumors on auburn boards that have no basis other than to smear Harsin's name..  It sounds like auburn's boosters who are still angry that Greene hired who he wanted instead of steele are using the negative news to try and replace him with their hand picked guy..

Yea, this is all very interesting to say the least. My GF is an Auburn fan and I mentioned something about rumors swirling months ago he may be out and I just remembering her and her family shrugging it off and saying I don't know that too many folks would miss him.

Just seems to be a lot going on with that many players entering the portal (I know times are changing but still), missing on some of their targets, former players taking shots on the way out, losing the coordinators, the vaccine stuff, and all this after a losing season. 

I know Auburn and their boosters have a track record that raises eyebrows but I think there's a good chance he doesn't survive this.

The leadership at auburn are clowns and that football program is as well.. So they enacted a new policy on the 8th of February to target Harsin.  https://sites.auburn.edu/admin/universitypolicies/Policies/EmployeeDutytoCooperatePolicy.pdf

What these rogue boosters and the leadership at Auburn don't get is they are hurting their program with getting any legitimate head coach worth a darn.  Another thing they did not have that enacted on purpose when their basketball program was being investigated for cheating because Pearl would not meet with the administration and answer any questions.  I was always told how corrupt auburn is, but they continue to push that envelope.

This is from a pretty knowledgeable poster who has a good idea of what is going on with the boosters.. 

“Hey everyone.

I honestly thought this was going to be Judgment Day in terms of Bryan Harsin's future with the football program. It appears judgment must wait a big longer.

Interviews either have reached the end or are nearing the end this afternoon. So in that sense, most of the data is in.

So what's next? President Jay Gogue, his right-hand man (Gen. Ron Burgess), the board of trustees and the university's office of general counsel will make a collaborative decision about what to do with the data gathered. That's how things like this work — even when certain elements of the operation attempt to exert bonus influence on matters.

At this stage, honestly, I'm not sure how this is going to end. That's a real problem, you know?

If Harsin isn't fired, he'll be saddled with immense baggage that doesn't belong to him. Winning in any existential sense will be almost impossible. Sure, they can win games next season. How will they recruit knowing strong, important elements within the university pine for a day when Harsin isn't the head coach? You'd better believe Auburn's competitors will be falling over themselves to paint Auburn as a rudderless organization on the verge of collapse. Even faithful Auburn people couldn't really protest that presentation too vociferously, you know?

If Harsin is fired, he's going to get paid and I'm here to tell you that there isn't a unified plan to fill the vacancy. I already can sense different plans being considered by different blocs. This feels just like December 2019 all over again. There's a rush to whack the king, so to speak, without an actionable plan to replace the king. Having a full plan in place is Coup Design 101 — and Auburn simply doesn't get it.

That Auburn doesn't learn from these fiascos really confuses me. What happened to lessons learned from Jetgate in 2003? What happened to lessons learned from the totally polarized (and FUBAR) Search of 2020? There were many teaching moments contained in those two disasters. Why are those lessons ignored?

The answer to that question will lead all of us to enlightenment. Unfortunately, I don't have incontrovertible answers there.

I think Gogue and the board and the OGC are waffling.

I think they lack clear evidence of any meaningful wrongdoing, which means Harsin (plus his staff) would be entitled to a lot of money if they're dismissed right now. It's reckless to put that expense on the athletic department again; Gus Malzahn's buyout just rolled off the department's books a few months back.

Paying Harsin to leave isn't a good option.

Leaving Harsin here after this drama isn't a good option.

Someone must answer for this — and not necessarily from an accountability standpoint.

I'm merely talking about from an explanationstandpoint. In lieu of a smoking gun that hasn't yet been found, someone would be required to stand behind a podium and coherently explain to Auburn people why Auburn worked to sabotage its own football coach. This person probably will say that certain accusations were made and the university was required to investigate those claims fully, that Auburn merely was following established protocols.

But this dilemma didn't begin with an accusation. It began long before that.”

Auburn is a joke of a football program. They can’t get out of their own way and it’s a darn shame for the alumni because it’s a really fine institution. 

Yep a complete joke.  Auburn boosters have always been a problem.. You have a number of powerful guys who think they run the program.. The false rumors and other fake news articles that were published (being paid for by auburn boosters) just to destroy a man they didn't like from the beginning shows just how much of a crap show they are.. Pat dye was the only guy who got the boosters under his thumb and after that each coach had to deal with that nonsense..  It's a shame their egos are so huge that is way more important to them then what is right for the university and the program.

It’s awful. Money ruining good men lives? For wins? He’s barely had a cup of coffee there and after one year it’s destroy the man for “a better coach?” How do they even know that he can’t improve the program? They obviously don’t support him and how can he build a winning program without support?  Is football that important? I know monetarily it’s important, but that’s just because the University Systems in America have been Completely corrupted. Send our children starting out into the world with massive debt? Our future into debt as much as a home mortgage to start their business lives  at 22 or 25 or 28? How is that good for America? How does that make our Nation stronger? It doesn’t. At all.

College football fans in the South are the worst human beings ever. Ever. And I’m old timey Alabama Football and my people are country as ****. Educated and successful mind you but Southern hard core and we’re not ok with this. Rivals or not. Some of my families DEARIST friends/family are Auburn people. Like tenured professors and ish. This is not good for any of us.  At all. This notion. We are literally Greece with Gladiators. That did not turn out well. Focus people. My …………?
