TRADITION IS THE FOUNDATION GREAT PROGRAMS ARE BUILT UPON.
Note on questions on if he can get eligible:
There are two ways for a non-qualifier (partial qualifier status was abolished) to get eligible in the SEC
1)JUCO - bylaw 184.108.40.206
2)Pay your own way for a year, burning a non-redshirt-year - bylaw 220.127.116.11
Option 2 has only been allowed by the SEC since 2008, and only with Slive's special permission. It allows an athlete to pay their way for 1 year, if they don't have any access of any sort to practice, and meet current student athlete progress and eligibility requirements.
The problem we likely had with Alfy Hill, and likely is true of Robinson, is that the NCAA requirement for option 2 that you never practice while sitting out a year was violated before the grade issue was straightened out. So, if Robinson pays his own way for a year and hopes that Slive and the NCAA both grant waivers he takes the risk that his request is denied, by rule making him permanently ineligible at Auburn.
He can just transfer to a JUCO, instantly be able to practice and have college paid for, and reevaluate his options when he graduates JUCO.
