Auburn Loses Two More Players From Championship Team

Would the last man to leave please remember to turn out the lights?

If you thought Auburn had endured all the attrition it could possibly face this offseason, think again.  When the Tigers kick off spring practice, receiver Philip Pierre-Louis and O-lineman Andre Harris won’t be on the spring roster. 

Prepare to be staggered.  Those two departures now bring the total number of scholarship players gone from last year’s roster to at least 38. 

38!

Out of 85 total scholarship players last year, Auburn has lost 38.

Now granted, Harris and Pierre-Louis aren’t exactly household names, but at this point, AU simply needs bodies.

Gene Chizik inherited a mediocre team when he arrived on The Plains.  In two years he took the Tigers from mediocrity to the mountain top.  But now, in many ways, he’s looking at a bigger rebuilding job than the one he faced in 2009.

38?  Wow.

Obviously you didn't see the 400 times I called out Scott Moore for being a fraud. Thanks for proving you can't read.

You might want to send a thank you note to us since we were one of the first sites to say "Put up or shut up" in regards to Moore while he was still making his media tour. And we're also one of the few non-Auburn-homer sites to say repeatedly that for all the accusations, no one has produced one shred of evidence regarding AU paying Cam Newton. And we also attempted to explain just how important the trees at Toomer's Corner are.

We are objective here at MrSEC because we don't have a dog in the fight. But when a few fans of a team rip this site -- due to their own reading comprehension shortcomings -- it makes it very hard to remain objective. Personally, if I'm going to take crap from Alabama fans claiming this is a pro-Auburn site, I better not hear some Auburn clown accusing this site of being anti-Auburn.

Looks like I touched a nerve with the Scott Moore comment. LOL

So does "objective" mean randomly picking two kids off the Auburn roster that aren't dressed out for day 1 of Spring practice and subtracting their scholarships from some random number to supposedly calculate the number of scholarships Auburn has available? How many kids dressed for Spring ball that weren't on the roster in 2010 that were signed in 2008 and 2009? I'll wait on that one.

And if I thought this site was objective, I would expect to see a post on the number of kids Nick Saban has on "Gray Shirt"? Auburn has not had a full scholarship roster in more than three years. Unlike Bama, Auburn truly has 85 or less. Not 130 players spread around as "gray shirts", football scholarships, or on medical scholarships to make room on the roster.

Objective means linking you to a story and pointing out the 38 players from last year's team are gone. Not sure why a statement of fact was taken as some sort of attack. But then again, I'm not a nutjob.

And if any school had 38 players turn over on their roster, we'd link to it.

But I'm glad you somehow found a way to attack Alabama over this. Thus proving that you see what you want, when you want, where you want.

I'd suggest you stick to the Auburn boards and leave this site for calm, rational folks who want objective coverage of the whole league.

Oh, and if someone had posted a story in a major Alabama paper today about grayshirting... uh, yeah... we'd have linked to it.

A depleted roster means the coaches will expect more from the players. Don't get to hot at practice aubbie, I hear the campus is lacking in shade trees.

Not really... just went by Toomers today, its actually in fucking bloom. I dont know if that means anything, but a sign of life isnt a 'bad' sign.

From the blog with an actual writer at practice, Assistant coach Trooper Taylor repeatedly telling players: “Looks like all the good players left.”

The barn is playing this up like they know they are going to be awful this season. Just read a Trooper Taylor quote saying "all our good players are gone." Guess he will have to dig deep for some more pocket change?
