Auburn has the trickiest coaching vacancy to fill, maybe the trickiest college football vacancy of my lifetime. There's not much to offer Auburn in the way of advice, other than this:
Any candidate willing to take this job should be crossed off the list. Because he must be a moron.
And I say that, Auburn people, with affection. I'm not anti-Auburn, not now and not even in 2010, when being anti-Auburn was all the rage. That was a magical season on the Plains, and all of Auburn -- Newton, the school, the fans -- deserved better than it got from the bloodthirsty media.
