I think it’s safe to say that Tony Franklin is no fan of the Bryan Harsin hiring. Or of Bryan Harsin, for that matter.
“Four games in and you crack, and you fire your receivers coach?” he asked. “The best coached group on the field for offense was your receivers. You’re basically firing your receivers coach because your offensive line sucks. Your offensive line is bad.”
He was just getting started.
“You showed the powers that be they run the show,” Franklin said of Harsin. “They make the calls.
“If you want to blame somebody for sucking right now, the way your football team sucks, I got a great idea. Instead of firing Cornelius, or whoever the next guy is you’re going to fire, just quit. Just resign.”
Franklin continued to hammer away at the Tigers, who he said are nothing more than a reflection of their coach.
“The characteristics of this football team are the same as the coach: soft, soft, soft,” he said.
“They aren’t a physical team. I’ve seen physical Auburn football many times in my life as a fan, as a coach.”
Axes to grind at Auburn? Looks like I’m gonna need a bigger bag of popcorn.
