- Of the guys that were still there, only a few worked with Malzahn.
- The most important of those was Trooper Taylor. I would be shocked if he doesn't end up with some awesomely titled job in athletic administration or fundraising. That is what happens when you have the keys to the closet that all the skeletons are in.
- I'm not surprised, save Trooper. Seems to me to be the only way to have a completely clean break for the team and fans. If he keeps anyone around and have that part of the team suck, he is opening himself up to a lack of judgement. He gets at least three years with his own guy in there.
- I'd be on the phone with a top flight defensive guy right now; someone who is seen as a superb motivator and talent evaluator. If that guy can recruit any and have a connection to Auburn all the better. That guy's phone rings in Athens, by the way.
