We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

I was just thinking about Auburn's hiring of Mike Pelton to replace Rocker, who left for the Titans. I feel this hire is going to have a huge impact not only on the defensive line, but in other areas, as well. We all know that Malzahn will be leaving soon. It's only a matter of time before someone pays big money to lure him away, and he deserves it (check Auburn offensive stats pre-Malzahn and after). A good performance by Pelton will show that Chizik has a nose for getting the right coaches to get the job done. My thinking is that this will help with recruiting, particularly on the offensive side of the ball, even with the inevitable departure of Malzahn looming in the future. Maybe I am just over thinking this, but I feel like I'm making a good point, fwiw.
