Losing Jones would hurt the most. I want Lewis, but with SB already committed and the likely hood of getting both Key and Sawyer is high, so losing Lewis wouldn't hurt as bad. Need to get Sawyer to talk to Jones and get him thinking Carolina.

Still need the depth at DE so losing Lewis would hurt pretty bad too.

Losing Jones would hurt really bad because as far as I can tell we're not recruiting any other DT's.

Depth shouldn't be an issue come 2015. Considering we'll have Sawyer, Key, Blackshear, Cooper, Dixon, Harris, English, Washington, Johnson, McClain, and probably Thomas, Wideman, and Ritchie. DE position is solid. If anything, we may have to move some players because we'll have too many. Maybe move Ritchie to TE and maybe Johnson to DT.

Losing Lewis wouldn't be that big of a deal, IMO. Still want to land him, though.

McClain and Wideman could be DT's by that time, Cooper and Harris may move back to LB, and Thomas may never get to campus. If we can land Key and Sawyer it helps, but we still need to land Lewis, even if he only stays one year.

These guys would be crazy to think Malzahn stays the HC for the next four years. He's already getting approached by NFL teams and what's the longest he's stayed in one position, 2-3 years? Anyone signing or thinking about signing with AU is going to be pretty disappointed bc Auburn does not have a backup plan when Malzahn bolts again in two years.

Similar could be said for Spurrier. Teams still use his age against us.

Spurrier has a better shot at being at SC in the next 3 years than Malzahn will be at auburn.

Malzahn gets about $2.5M at Auburn a year. In comparison, Chip Kelly get $6.5M from the Eagles.

Saban is the highest paid HC in college football at $5.5M. Sean Payton earns $8M from the Saints.

Malzahn won't want to be at Bama's little brother school forever. This is just a stepping stone for him.

Auburn is far from a stepping stone. They are a SEC power.

When they are paying him $2.5M, and there are great offensive coaches out there like Kelly earning $6M in the Pro's, Auburn is a stepping stone. Auburn is a job to Gus, and you work jobs b/c you do what you love and it pays. If someone offers him twice as much money to be a HC in the Pro's, some heart felt love for Auburn isn't going to keep him there. He didn't go to school there, he didn't play there, he's never said Auburn is the only job he wants, etc....

Auburn is not famed for being loyal to their coaches - even the ones who produce undefeated seasons.

Terry Bowden
Tommy T.
Gene C.

One could say that all three should have moved on while they were hot commodities.

Oh no doubt, and some schools do in fact use that when negative recruiting against other schools. But that is the players own fault if they believe in it. Spurrier comes out every year and reiterates that he isn't going anywhere, which remains true. However, if any recruit buys stock in Spurrier retiring anytime soon, I ask that they also look at how fast these other coaches leave for other positions. Spurrier is old school, when he says he isn't going anywhere, take it for the gospel. But these younger, negative recruiting coaches, they are the ones to take with a grain of salt due to their lust of the coaching carousel every other year. Unlike Spurrier who has almost 10 years at his current school.

Yeah but Spurrier isn't stupid, he isn't going to tell a recruit he is going to leave right after the season. He has to tell them 4 or 5 years to get their signatures. Think about when he was forgoing raises for PoP extensions. USC was, and still is, getting beat up with the "Spurrier won't coach your entire career".

When he decides to hang it up, its going to catch everyone outside the AD off guard barring something happening to his or Geri's health or a total season(s) meltdown.

I'd say our coaching situation is just as up in the air, or more, than Auburn's. Unfortunately for USC, 90% of the recruits we sign are because of relationships with the coaching staff, not the school/program.

I didn't know post count was directly correlated with knowing certain things in regards to recruiting.

However, over 1,700 posts in five months obviously means one is thoroughly connected.
