Nothing attracts more attention than salacious sexual misconduct.  The rest is just various shades of greed.

Let the housecleaning begin.

The sexual misconduct didn't start at AU. Just like Clint's pattern of protecting Corey, Corey had the creepy sexual misconduct reputation at ASU. There were some comments of him being more than friendly with the ASU student-athletes but they were dismissed for various reasons. Now, looking back, those posters were right but they couldn't prove anything.

It's ironic that ASU got rid of one sexual predator, only to end up hiring another one in Nicholson, who was also more than friendly with the student-athletes.

Dont know if this has been discussed but if Megan Good graduates early and gets her degree this December, She could transfer to Auburn as a graduate transfer and would be eligible to play in the spring.

You reap what you sow, JJ. Don't let the softball hit you on the way out!

Interesting that of all the scandals, softball is the one that is mentioned first.


It happened first.  Jay hired the next softball coach.  Jay also pushed for Chuck Person to be on the staff even though it was a bit unusual for a coach that interviewed for the head coaching job (which Person did) to be hired as an assistant.   Note that the push to move Jay out began when the FBI announced the charges against Chuck Person.   And I'm referring to the push that got Jay to resign, not the stupidity that pushed for it on this board.   Two things led to this.   Football's loss at LSU which put Auburn in a position to need another AD in place just in case another football coach needed to hired...and the FBI case.  Softball was just used as leverage to move it along.   If the FBI thing didn't happen and Auburn was in a better position in the CFP rankings with a 8-1 record instead of that loss at LSU after blowing a 20-0 lead, Jay still might have resigned at the end of the school year, but it wouldn't have been sought, nor announced anywhere near this time.

This aged well.

Sanctimonious B-Gib will be here shortly to tell us Jay is 'retiring'. That it had nothing to do with the myers fiasco and subsequent cover-up.

Well, considering they only signed 3 of the original 7 (I believe)

Besides, Dean's got 5 pitchers on the roster & only Carlson graduates. IMO, at least 1 of his pitchers quits/leaves & he gets a transfer.

Based on my research none of the 3 look very good...

Auburn was supposed to have the #2 class:

We're talking about the 2018 class here.  Auburn is listed at #2 with 7 recruits in the 2019 class.  (A year from now)

Yes, Im sorry it wasn’t clear. My point was they were ranked much higher before the 3 decommitted and last weeks ranking from FloSoftball included a player that didn’t sign.

Auburn only has 3 seniors on their roster - Carlson, Shay and Draper.

Kinda crazy considering the sister who went there (Sara) left because of issues with playing time and didn’t seem happy with the university. Maybe UGA righted that ship.

A year ago...you sure about that. Seems to me it was after Colorado. Maybe July? All was good in Auburn a year ago so that would seem bit odd.
