Is the Auburn brain trust on the same page?

Brian VanGorder is making plans.

With the arrival of new defensive coordinator Brian VanGorder, Auburn fans may see a shift in the type of players the Tigers are recruiting on the defensive side of the ball. With his NFL background, VanGorder is likely to pursue larger and stronger players at every position and the secondary is no exception.

Wait, wut?  “The secondary is no exception”?  Has anyone run this by Willie “Smurfs make the best defensive backs” Martinez?

    VanGorder wants bigger AND stronger players?! Wow, get in line with every other D1 program. Isn’t that kinda what everyone wants?

    Auburn brain trust? Is there such a thing?

    With larger defensive backs, there is a slightly better chance the ball will hit them in the back of the helmet.

    You must be below Willie the Clown’s hand to ride this ride.

    Stop picking on Martinez. He just never wanted to have to look up to his players. That’s why he went for shorter players that could jump like grasshoppers. And who had eyes in the back of their head. And whose elbows can hit a man in the crotch when they jumped to block a pass.

    Auburn brain trust? What an oxymoron! This ranks right up there with “Senate Ethics committee”!
