I admit, I'm kind of a jerk for this

but I can't help but laugh at the post on Track 'Em Tigers entitled "The Beautiful Plains", an open letter to potential recruits.  I stumbled across this gem while checking out all the Willis-related posts.  It is unintentional comedy gold, at least if you have a sense of humor like mine and you're not an Auburn fan.  

I linked the post below, but to get to 75 words, I'll give my comments on some of the best parts.  Italics are the original, my smart@ss comments follow:

To the recruits out there, you really should greatly consider AU. When you become part of Auburn you're part of the family, not just a football player.

Just ask Chaz Ramsey or Clinton Durst.

If you're a big time receiver recruit, I cannot see how you couldn't want to go to Auburn. Trooper Taylor is there and his record speaks for itself. Plus, Auburn will put a new Wide Receiver to work right away.


Running Backs, this is Running Back University. We're going to run the football a lot, and it doesn't matter what kind of offense we run.

Information Tony Franklin could have used in December, 2007. 

I cannot see how you wouldn't want to come out to a beautiful place, a family atmosphere and a great set of facilities. Do not forget, there is also a new set of great position coaches that will have you ready for the next level and will help you learn important life lessons. Come out guys and see for yourselves. You won't regret coming out here.

I don't get the repeated references to Auburn as being "out here."  Is this 1820 and Lee County, Alabama is considered part of the frontier?  Perhaps these recruits need some assurances there will be no more Creek uprisings and there's sufficient food to last through the winter?
