I, for one, hope Lawson is right. We must right the ship the way it is suppose to be and get on top of our little brother in ttowner and return Auburn back to the top where we belong. Wouldn't it be amazing if we signed Lawson, Adams, Alexander(s) and Foster. WOW. I will say it backwards, WOW.

Nice piece. The first thing I'll add, and it's hardly offered to cut Mike Rogers any slack, especially since he's held office since most students here at AU were in elementary school, is that he's likely terrified of a primary challenge from the fringes of the fringe. The modern GOP has painted themselves into a corner by relying on extreme rhetoric and such. And thus, they have the entire nation in a jam. Compromise and moderation actually damages them with much of their base. This is why Mike Rogers, a backbencher for his entire career, writes his occasional red meat pieces for our papers and parrots the language the GOP's message mavens feed him, or more likely his staff. The first rule is to get re-elected for pretty much any politician. In the House, it's a near constant campaign. The second thing I'll add is that the Senate has, due to aged compromises ironically, an arrangement where a few sparsely populated states have Senators with the same votes as those from more urban states. That reality tends to limit what comes out of that body. And even if they have six year terms, our Senators are also nervous about a primary challenge. Near examples right now are Saxby Chambliss, who just cashed out over in Georgia, and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, who has headed hard right more and more in recent years.

I believe that Auburn will get Lawson and Lawson will be a beast for Auburn beginning next year. I believe Auburn also gets Reuben and Flowers. Those will be the starting LB's next year with CM seeing significant playing time as well. I believe Auburn steels Adams and he too will see significant playing time next year on the plains. There will be some game day rotation among these guys with some of the older players. Auburn will win 8-9 games this next year with their only losses coming to bambinos, LSU & possibly A/M but we will see if we get one of those wins. Jeremy Johnson I really do believe will win the start at QB and our running game will have at least 60 more yds per game in 2013. Our defense will be in the top half of the SEC (surprise, surprise), with our run defense significantly improved. Let's all get on the Gus-Bus, and sing the fight song...'on to victory...'

Your name calling and elementary reading comprehension show who is more like a third grader here. The letter never says to replace current board members just because they are white men so you can get over that little pity party you threw yourself. It doesn't even say to hire the one female and zero minorities up for the position right now. It just says that it's kind of ridiculous if you look honestly at the composition of the board. Do you honestly believe that of the thousands of nominees over time it just happened that over 90% of the positions would be filled by white men? That was only because they are the most qualified? Then perhaps there's a deeper issue at hand and we should be questioning why women and minorities are apparently so overwhelmingly unqualified and unprepared for such a job. A pity show? Maybe it's simply raising questions that people like you are too unprepared for handling at this time.

Are you suggesting they replace members already on the board who have fought and earned their place to be there with a woman (or whomever you believe was discredited) just because? I would hate to see that logic applied to everyday situations such as doctors. The essence of this story can be derived as more of a pity show than an actual, factual analysis. Just because several women interviewed for the position does not mean they are qualified. The board should not be measured by its diverseness but by its competence to fulfill its duties. It is certainly more logical for the board to pick the best people for the job than to let everyone win and be happy because we're all still 3rd graders This time it seems more men were qualified, that is all. It's not some conspiracy to have an all male group. Next year maybe more qualified women will interview for the position. There are times to make things equal and there are times to make things fair. This is a question of what is fair to the people who earned their spot on the board no matter how many chromosomes they posses.
