Kevin Scarbinsky: The fire this time on the plains is not just Auburn that is Auburn

It’s the easiest story in college football. Whenever something goes wrong in the house Pat Dye built, when the football program makes the kind of headlines for which Friday afternoon’s news dumps were created, people far and wide tend to conclude that, details aside, the underlying statement is in the ground. is rooted.

It’s just Auburn who is Auburn where they met the enemy and it’s them and the circular firing squad never runs out of ammunition. Auburn fans themselves have embraced this dubious distinction and have made it an acronym, JABA as shorthand when talking to each other.

On the surface, Auburn’s farewell to athletic director Allen Greene eight days before the kick-off of a new football season seems like the latest in an ongoing series of juicy JABA moments. Keeping the door open for AD with soccer coach Bryan Harsin in the hot seat in the wake of an SEC basketball title, a College World Series trip and the school’s first Final Four in gymnastics?

You can’t spell that kind of daring without AU, amirite, though this episode is unique in that it sparked outrage and outrageous public defamation from Tennessee AD (and Allen Greene friend and mentor) Danny White. His reprimand from SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey for his insolence at the conference should be on the way by now.

You might come to the handy conclusion, but it’s always better to dig deeper. In this case, after discussions with multiple Auburn insiders, it seems that letting Greene go was not short-sighted, but was far too late, not the unfortunate result of another internal power struggle, but the next logical and necessary step now that being Auburn proud home. in order.

The first step was to hire an old Auburn man, Dr. Christopher B. Roberts, as University President. Good men long standing on the plains have been singing his praises since his appointment. Their educated opinion is that Roberts is just the man to hire the right person to help him start an athletics division whose success on the scoreboard too often obscures the dysfunction behind the scenes.
