At Auburn, that’s how they roll these days.

Kevin Scarbinsky thinks he’s found a clue as to what makes Auburn’s new coaching staff special:  sartorial correctness.

… Chizik is 47, which makes him a puppy in Bobby Bowden years. With the exception of the 54-year-old Lolley, Chizik went for energy and enthusiasm over age and experience in hiring his assistants.

Consider the ages of the other Auburn football staffers:

Ted Roof: 45. Gus Malzahn and Curtis Luper: 43. Tracy Rocker: 42. Jeff Grimes: 40. Trooper Taylor and Tommy Thigpen: 38. Jay Boulware: 36.

That means the average age of the Auburn assistants is 42.

That means they’re less likely to get offended if a player wears his cap backwards and more likely to wear their own caps that way.

Because everybody knows that cap wear is the key to greatness. True dat.

    I like the parting shot at the end …

    “They’re all older than Lane Kiffin. And, so far, they act like it.”
