Live and Breathe "The Process"
"That's the way it goes. But don't forget, it goes the other way too."
# of posts over time doesn't mean anything. We have many posters who seem to only be able to post such contributory comments as "awesome", "great news", "thanks Lucky", well you get the point. So they have a high post count which apparently conveys they are a more valuable poster than someone with a lower post count.
This doesn't mean this particular op is in the know on this subject but having a low post count shouldn't mean he doesn't.
Personally, I think info of this nature would be all over the Internet very quickly just by players tweeting from the meeting or locker room just to get the word out. So...
The longer this goes, the more likely the OP was led down a dead end road.
The players were allegedly told over 5 hours ago. You can be darn certain that if over 100 football players, coaches, and other staff members were told that the athletic director at Auburn University had been fired, this message board certainly wouldn't be the only place you would be reading about it. Word would have spread like wildfire around campus. And why only the football team? Jacobs isn't a football coach. If you tell athletes, you tell all of them.
You don't announce the firing of an athletic director to a football team...certainly not to the exclusion of other teams.

Eh that is possible without being a troll. Some of us just don't have much to say. :)
Perhaps they pinky promised not to tell anyone.
Yeah. And they'd probably keep a secret about as good as George Costanza.
Another swing and a miss. Nothing personal against the OP. Sounds like he has a good track record. It just seems like this always happens. People jump the gun and post without having confirmation other than what they heard from somebody. Also there is a lot of specific information that isn't the case. When will people learn? If your source is not someone that has firsthand knowledge, its probably a better idea to be a little more cautious about putting it on the board. Again I mean no disrespect. RTR!
Maybe I should elaborate more then I did in the original post with that saId I still trust my source I did not put dates or deadlines I'll only relay information.
It makes sense for Jacobs to go first though. Then the Chiz. Just my thoughts on it .
