A former and current Auburn football player sound off on fans swaying recruits away

Auburn football fans have been dealing with the dominance of Nick Saban’s Alabama Crimson Tide and the more recent dominance of their Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry counterpart, Georgia, making it a pretty tough fandom to fathom.

The program’s own futility has only helped fuel the fires the past two seasons, but Tiger fans are starting to get a really bad rap because of how they behave online.

Quite frankly, some of it is deserved. That Bo Nix actually left the program after living a life where all roads led to the Plains and having one of the more impressive freshman seasons in recent memory is a travesty. Tank Bigsby almost left too, and we’ve seen former players like Big Kat Bryant have long-standing public grudges with the fanbase.

All of this led to former Auburn football stars sounding off on the matter on Twitter. Jordyn Peters tweeted several times on the issue:

Peters got a shoutout from former teammate Anthony Schwartz for his stance:

Current Tigers DT Marquis Burks added his two cents as well:

Auburn basketball fans, you keep on loving that team and deep frying memes. Auburn football fans? You have upset the very players you dedicate so much support to.
