…or something like that:
Jacobs didn’t name Tuberville. He never does, but he doesn’t have to when he makes the following statements:
“Our youth and inexperience is not an excuse. It is a fact. Consider the following: Auburn signed a total of 58 players in the 2007 and 2008 recruiting classes (the classes that are this year’s fourth- and fifth-year seniors). Only nine players from those two classes remain. Roughly half of the players who signed in 2007 and 2008 either never enrolled at Auburn, quit or transferred.”
True, and who signed the 2007 and 2008 Auburn classes? Tuberville. Those were his last two classes at Auburn before taking a year off and then taking over at Texas Tech.
Funny, when these classes were being signed some folks were saying:
With commitments from Davis, Pugh, Burns, Freeman, Ramsey and Ziemba, Auburn’s 2007 recruiting class is shaping up to be one of the best ever.
Also, I didn’t see if Jacobs commented on arrests for armed robbery affecting attrition rates.
