Lol, claaaassic, even argues with the real Auburn fans.
On the AJ and 5 stars, that wasn't exactly his point, on the entitlement...
That's Scarbinsky for you though, spinning it for more readers. His point was obviously the media giving them a big head, not that they're terrible for a school.
Complaining about 5 stars is like saying you hate your girlfriend for being too hot, because you're tired from all the amazing sex you have. Yeah, a complete joke.
Oh cool, I can bold things, too.
“I think that’s one of the things that is wrong with recruiting out of high school,” said McCarron. “You have guys who have never played the game of football rating these guys that they are a 5-star, because they’re sitting behind a computer screen watching their highlight film. Well, their highlight film is supposed to be good, the last time I checked. That’s the kind of thing that ticks me off about recruiting and when these kids come in and they’re 5-stars and they expect to play right off the bat. It’s a little entitlement and when they don’t play off the bat, they get a little ticked off and they don’t want to work.”
There are two parts to his comment and the second part certainly applies. He criticized the way 5-stars are evaluated and then he criticized the way they feel entitled to things.
I'm not going to start a pissing contest with you in an Auburn thread so if you'd like to continue it from here please feel free to GTFO our boards.

Us complaining about the entitlement is not gonna change anything. These are 18 year old kids and each one is going to handle it differently. Rahsaan is a bad mofo no matter what his family does and you go after him regardless of the situation. The coaches didn't mind it as much as the fans. They actually said the coaches got along and had a good time with one another. And yes, players do see the bashing on message boards.
It won't change anything, but that doesn't mean we should be content with it. I want hard-nosed, hard-working, committed players. After the way we got burned by Rueben Foster (And we're lucky we were) we should know better than to play games with recruits. We've got talented players who sincerely want to come to Auburn. I'll take sincerity and commitment over recruiting games any day.
