Many Auburn football fans felt disgraced former head coach Bryan Harsin chose the perfect Halloween costume, one he shared via his Instagram story in a repost of a photo from his daughter Devyn: the Joker, aka the Gotham City-based clown who didn’t even have the talents to be in the circus.
“Is he even in costume? Or was he in costume his whole time at Auburn,” asked one sardonic but clever fan. “Seems more natural here.”
“I see that Coach Harsin decided to embrace his true self,” acknowledged another doubter of the Tribal Thief; a thief of a $15.3 million buyout total and (allegedly) an SUV from the athletic department.
“No way Bryan Harsin dressed up as the Joker for Halloween,” said another who couldn’t believe the Boise native would set himself up with a slam dunk for his haters.
“Nobody ever said Bryan Harsin isn’t a good poster,” said one poster who sees how good Harsin is at getting the Auburn family to talk about him and keep his name relevant.
“This is actually funny because he turned an entire fanbase into Jokers,” said another Auburn family member who recognizes the mental damage done to the fanbase from the 2021 season and first eight games of the 2022 season.
Bryan Harsin excuses don’t explain current Auburn football offense struggles
You can draw a straight line from Harsin to Bo Nix and T.J. Finley thriving in their post-Plains careers after struggling with the Tigers, but claiming that the Auburn football program, particularly the offense, is still unsuccessful because of him is dubious.
Hugh Freeze brought in a slew of transfer offensive linemen and has handed the ball to his own transfer quarterback, Payton Thorne, while the fanbase clamors for QBs (Robby Ashford, Holden Geriner) that Harsin brought on to get snaps.
Accountability is needed for a program that’s a bit too comfortable blaming Harsin for everything.
