    Good news. But honestly, I don't get it... Auburn has a harder schedule, higher expectations, dysfunctional boosters, and the fans will compare you to Bama and UGA. DOes Auburn have more resources? Sure, but OM know how to get $$$ to croots too. If I was Kiffin I'd chill on 10M a year at OM till a true blue blood came calling, but I'm glad he's not.

    Heck if I had made a few million by age forty I would have long retired. But coaches are competitive and want a new challenge.

    Let me be the first to say "thank you" to John Cohen. One of the best things he's ever done for State.

    As far as LK choosing Auburn, them probably moving to the east with Alabama when the next 2 join the west, likely weighed into his decision. Winning the East at Auburn sounds easier than winning the West at Ole Miss. And they have as much money as they need for the NIL, and are two hours from a top 5 metro area (market opportunities and a huge player pool).

    Between this and getting our NIL kick started by poor mouthing us he has done more for us as an AD at Auburn than he did as MSU's AD.

    All this is exactly what I think of Auburn. Maybe Tim Cook is throwing in Apple Stock Options to make Auburn more fantastically rich than we can possibly know.

    Nobody is shocked that he is job hopping away....but nobody expected Auburn. I just don't see the fit. He won't be there long either.
