the barn. I'm sure the pasture alumni will be dumbfounded to realize that they have been playing patty cake defense under that great defensive legend Cheesestix.
That is a really interesting comment coming from a coach on a team only one year removed from winning a NC.
Its very odd the words they have chosen to discuss the direction of their program considering the person that is in charge is still there.
Its very much like they changed head coaches in the offseason.
Thigpen is one of the good guys at Auburn

I agree. That would worry me as a fan if in the head coaches 4th year they are trying to change the culture. I'm amazed how much the barn is now like UT under the last 4 or 5 years of Fulmer. They recruit good pn paper but never have any depth & have a lot of off field trouble but ut had more talent on offense. This season should be interesting for the barn because it looks like a soon to be train wreak
Hasn't Thigpen been there since Chiz got there?
Trooper Taylor was on Fulmer's coaching staff his last 4 years or so. I remember there was a joke going around that Fulmer was going to run for sheriff so he could spend more time with his players.

Coach Thig is a great guy. I was very disappointed when he took the job at AU.
Wow. That's an absolute indictment against an HC when an assistant says the program needs a culture change heading into Year 4...
I was wondering how many current AU coaches wish they could get OUT of the Family deal........ Thigpen? Maybe Gorder is having 2nd thoughts? I have no doubt that Trooper, Luper, and a couple other ones are ALL IN.
According to their HC, they're still building the foundation.
Sounds like something from three little pigs.

Sad thing is, he left UNC to get away from John Blake. Inherited Trooper. We have a mutual friend. I'd welcome him at Bama as far as his character goes.

I'm just curious where and when Thigpen said this. Is there a link to be had???
Yes it is. Should be an eye opener for the fans, but it probably won't be.
Roof, Malzahn and Lolley were the first three coaches to leave the staff and they all left last season so yeah, he's been there all Chizik term as head coach.
