While not what I would reference as a "good thing", Rich Bisaccia leaving for another NFL gig, hurt Auburn a little, but was NOT the devastating blow that losing any of the other coaches would have been.
Had Auburn somehow convinced Tracy Rocker to come back, and Rocker leave for the Cowboys, that would have been devastating. So I look at Coach Bisaccia's leaving as the best of all the scenarios
that could have happened. It's not like we didn't already have an experienced RB's coach on the staff.
The final recruiting push will be coming next weekend. Gus Malzahn and his staff have done a pretty good job of holding the 2013 class together considering the events of the previous season. Major staff changes are difficult, complete staff changes really hurt the overall way recruits look at a school. Some of the recruits have even said as much.
Don't forget that I will be doing a simul-post of sorts when I blog the entire National Signing Day events on both ATB and Track Em Tigers. It will be taxing, but I am looking forward to it.
