AUsome Links: Recruiting, Future Scheduling and "Never To Yield" Gets Yielded

AUBURN AL - SEPTEMBER 25: Head coach Gene Chizik of the Auburn Tigers celebrates after their 35-27 win over the South Carolina Gamecocks at Jordan-Hare Stadium on September 25 2010 in Auburn Alabama.



- Auburn's 2012 recruiting class was (probably) concluded with the signing of elite offensive lineman Alex Kozan. Auburn grabbed seven offensive linemen in this class, most of them 4-star or 5-star. So, even in a down year for recruiting at Auburn, Gene Chizik and staff still reeled in a top ten class. Simply amazing, especially when you consider that Tuberville was sure that Auburn couldn't compete for top classes.

- With Missouri and Texas A&M coming to the SEC, scheduling has become an issue for the SEC. Do you increase the already-tough conference schedule to nine games, or stay at eight and destroy yearly games like Auburn-Georgia and Tennessee-Alabama? In my opinion, you should just go to nine games and drop a non-conference game. Really, do you need THREE cupcakes on your schedule? Just play nine SEC games along with two cupcake nonconference games and one tough nonconference game.

- A few weeks ago, an Auburn website called "Never to Yield", which defends Auburn against the media and "haters", ran an article blasting Evan Woodberry, an Auburn beat writer for the Mobile-Press Register. The article claims he is an Alabama homer and should cover them instead. Auburn journalism teacher John Carvalho was not amused by this accusation against Woodberry, writing an article supporting the accused journalist. I like a lot of things the Never to Yield Foundation does, but they messed up by claiming that Woodberry is an Alabama fan just because he sometimes makes a humorous remark. Good on you, Mr. Carvalho,
