Recruiting & Goodbye Mr. Moseley

Gus Malzahn 

 The final push is on! The new coaching staff at Auburn is working diligently to put the 2013 recruiting class together, and finish with a resounding BOOM!

 There are four weekends left before National Signing Day (NSD) and the pieces of the puzzle are starting to take shape. Signing JUCO athletes was something that Gene Chizik and his staff did their first year at Auburn, but stayed away from in the following classes. Gus Malzahn and his current staff have made it a point of emphasis to attract and sign quality JUCO talent.

 Make no mistake about it, there has been several really good recruiting classes brought into AU by the former staff, but there is a real need for some experienced players at key positions. Plus the mentality has to change, and we don't know who on the current team will be able to adapt. It would be nice if all of the current players could evolve into what Gus wants them to become. In reality several will not.

 Clint Moseley has decided not to continue his AU football career, although I suspect it is because of his recurring injuries, not his willingness to get better, that is the major factor in his decision. Clint always seemed to do whatever was asked of him, even if he was emotional in his doing so. This writer would like to take this space to say "Thank You" to Clint Moseley for all that you have done for Auburn. Seeing him limp onto the field this past season to take over for Kiehl Frazier told me all I need to know about his desire to win. Moseley was playing hurt, but answered the call anyway. 

War Eagle Clint!
