Re: Attrition
I hate it but the reality is he couldn't beat out Jack Driscoll or Austin Troxell.  And when he did get a chance, he got served.  Served I tell ya.
You guys ever thought about the fact that the guy who coined the term, "coined the term", coined the term?

Re: Attrition
al.com needs to know! 

Is Ashley transfer part of a negative trend at Auburn?  Why it must be!

https://www.al.com/sports/2019/02/alcom-all-access-is-calvin-ashley-transfer-part-of-a-negative-trend-for-auburn.html

So the question is: Is this a Calvin Ashley problem or an Auburn problem?

That’s a pretty uneven track record, especially when you compare it to the fact that nearly every 5-star recruit that Alabama signs becomes an All-SEC-type player for the Crimson Tide and goes on to play in the NFL.

Remember that, Tigers fans, when you dream on Bo Nix and Owen Pappoe. There’s a better than 50/50 chance they won’t be the stars you might think they will be, at least not for your team.

I just about posted that yesterday to point out the continued Bama knob schlobbage.  It's in the Auburn football section of the dot  I am a gay twerker that has no balls!!!!  I also have no idea how to use the quote function to post stories, so I annoy the piss out of others.  I like male genatalia in and around my mouth. and yet, you have to put that shoot in there about how much more successful  the Tahd players are.  BTW, the piece focuses on 3 five star guys that transferred out.  Byron Cowart, who had 38 total tackles (Solo and assists) for Maryland in 12 games.  Roc McFumbles Thomas, who simply wanted more playing time and had a nice 2 years at Jacksonville State.  Eclipsed 1,000 yards his senior year.  And Calvin Ashley, a guy who came in at 350, out of shape and just never could do what it took to play in the SEC.  Best of luck to him.

I'd take it more to the development stages.  Take Byron Cowart for instance.  There's not a big name school in the country that didn't offer this guy.  Ashley had it down to us, Florida and Florida State.  They all saw the same things our staff did.  Every one of them would have signed these guys.  The question is what does the staff do with them when they get on campus?  That and the snakes in Malzahn's head have been our problem IMO.

Inspiring.  Every time he makes a comeback, I use that as motivation for my own life.

What are the numbers on other schools'(not named bammer) five star development?
If you have four at a position and one doesn't pan out, nobody knows unless he leaves. and this is a new era of leaving. So we get constantly compared to the factory across the state. What do we look like compared to the others? And many other schools have 3 and 4 stars leaving.
BCow was just at a position where we have a LOT of studs. He could have been great had he wanted to compete. Is that a coaching issue? The other guys competed.
Maybe we only recruit the "nice" 5 stars...
Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Re: Attrition
bammer had 7 or what 8 coaches leave some for equal positions, but that isn't a new downward trend for them I suppose.

Downward trend???  Pfffffffft….  That's Almighty Lord Saybinz sending those coaches out into the world with unsurpassed life skills.  They will be forever indebted to the man.  Plus, they'll have some great recommendations on hair coloring.

That's only like 2% of their coaching staff though

Hey, ya'll remember that 5* Auburn kept, Deshaun Davis?  He wanted to transfer, too! 

https://www.al.com/auburnfootball/2019/02/deshaun-davis-on-calvin-ashley-the-transfer-portal-and-the-time-he-thought-about-transferring.html

Headline not what the story is about, but you know our buddies.  Always supportive!

You have to get the very bottom to get the synopsis of the whole thing which they conveniently leave out of the headline. No way in hell Davis was leaving.

Re: Attrition
Cam'ron Kelly is leaving due to family illness.  Hate to lose a 4* kid, but we have some depth on the backside of the defense and if the kid needs to go, then he needs to go.
