This is lame at best and troubling at worst (at least if you’re an Auburn fan).
Auburn head coach Gene Chizik declined comment Tuesday when asked about Sheridan’s allegations.
Luper, the Tigers’ recruiting coordinator, declined comment Wednesday, said the Tigers staff is following its recruiting plan.”We’ve got our commitments, and we have a strategy to keep those guys,” Luper said. “We’re not going to elaborate on any of it, and we’re definitely not going to answer any accusations.”
Luper and Taylor have attended Auburn High School games over the last several weeks to see their sons play for the school, which is the same team as Tigers’ commitment Reuben Foster.“Obviously, we can’t comment on any accusations, but I can tell you this,” Taylor said. “We have a plan in place for recruiting. We stick to that plan, and what this coaching staff is focused on, outside of recruiting, is winning a football game.”
Hunh? “Obviously, we can’t comment on any accusations?” Jeez, guys, it’s not like we’re talking about the FBI here. It’s Danny Freakin’ Sheridan. Nobody at Auburn had any trouble denying the Cam rumors – and that was with the NCAA sniffing around. But Trooper can’t say Sheridan’s FOS?
I guess that’s an invitation for the media to spend time following the two assistants around to see if they’re off the recruiting trail. They’re the ones sporting the backwards caps, fellas, so they shouldn’t be that hard to spot.
