If you've listened to Finebaum (why?!) or any other radio show in the last few weeks, you've heard callers and hosts bring up the lack of response from the Auburn administration to the recent struggles on the football field. My question is why should they have to say anything? We're seven games into the season and it's not good. Is it normal for a president to just come out and say something just to keep the fans calm? They are there to run the school. However, Auburn president Jay Gogue apparently did feel that it was time to give a general, broad response to the many emails regarding the football team he had recieved recently, because he did so in a statement today. Instead of giving the answers that some may want to hear, he reminds us of what we should be doing as Auburn fans. A Message to the Auburn Family about Auburn Football The Auburn spirit is part of everything we do – in the classroom and beyond. It includes the spirit we show when we support those who represent us on the playing field. Later today, Auburn students and the local community will gather to cheer on the football team as they practice. I encourage others to follow their example by coming together and getting behind the young men who wear the orange and blue each fall Saturday. In the past few weeks, many of you have contacted me, and I appreciate everyone who has taken the time to share your thoughts about the football program. I know your concerns are sincere and heartfelt, and I share many of them. As we do every year, the football program will be evaluated in an objective, thorough and professional process. For everything there is a time, and now is the time to support. The young men and women – our students – who make up Auburn University are grateful for the dedication of their extended Auburn Family. So am I. War Eagle!
