The Paul Finebaum Show
, NBA legend and Auburn alum, Charles Barkley, named the Auburn head football coach as the toughest gig in the country right now...

“I admire the guy. He took the toughest job in sports. I mean in all of sports,” Barkley said of Harsin on The Paul Finebaum Show. “And I’m not saying that to be dramatic or anything Paul, you know how it is. You got the greatest football coach in history, in college football on the other side of the state. Nick Saban is the G.O.A.T. What he’s accomplished at Alabama is amazing. I always give him credit because he’s the greatest football coach ever in college. But our coach, what he did taking that job, I think it’s the hardest job in sports. I think it takes tremendous courage for him to leave Boise State. You know, he played at Boise, he grew up there. He could have stayed at Boise State for the next hundred years and won seven, eight games a year and live happily ever after.

“But for him to take the challenge to come to the greatest school in the world, Auburn University, and go against the greatest football coach ever, man, my hat is off to this guy. I’m gonna support him 110%. I cannot wait for football season to start. But man, you’ve got to give the guy some credit for taking this job. I mean that sincerely. To take the Auburn job, to go against what they got going over in Tuscaloosa, he believes in himself. He believes in himself, so I’m gonna believe in him.”

He needs to do a better job of recruiting or it ain't going to end well.

Auburns 6th choice is a perfect fit for them.

Obviously the toughest job in sports is writing a headline for TD that makes sense. Larry you are horrible.

Why should there be an eyeroll? Taking any type of conservative stance that has anything to do with professional sports would make it the toughest job of all time.
