Well, we guess we know what sport is king at Auburn.
Not that it surprises anyone. But it appears that school president Jay Gogue is already apologizing for the Tigers incredibly poor performance in 2012.
Gogue sent a letter, through the schools communications department to "The Auburn family, about Auburn Football".
It encourages students and the community to come out and cheer the team at practice. (Interesting since most SEC teams close practice--to everyone)
He goes on to say that "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 (he's getting nasty letters), and I share many of them. As we do every year, the football program will be evaluated in an objective, thorough and professional process. (Gene Chizik will be gone after the season)
Read the entire letter RIGHT HERE
By the way, the Tigers are 1-6 right now with realistically 2 possibly winnable games left on the schedule.
We, along with many others find it a bit humorous Gogue feels the need to address this in a public manner. But we are also quite sure, considering the incredible inferiority complex most Auburn fans seem to have, that many have been SCREAMING as loud as they can to Mr. President that it's time to make a change.
Because of the money involved in parting ways with coach Gene Chizik, he'll last the season. Though, when Carousel begins in December, Chizik may not be the 1st name on the firing list, but he'll be pretty high up on the list.
Auburn's "Friends and Family" won't put up with anything less.
