Some of the strangest flexes in college football recently have been the social media graphics. For some reason, schools have been posting these big, well-designed graphics showing off NFL players who played for other schools.
Of course, the reason for highlighting them is the coaching staff that helped them along the way. When Georgia brought Scott Cochran over from Alabama, the Bulldogs wanted to show off the success that Cochran had in Tuscaloosa.
Still, the post wasn’t popular back then, and the one Auburn shared on Monday isn’t either — or at least not in the eyes of opposing fan bases. In fact, those fans have taken the post as an opportunity to troll the Tigers, as pointed out by The Spun.
None of which played for AU. This is an embarrassing graphic. Do much better

Yes, Auburn’s new coaching staff has a strong history of developing talent. But there’s probably a better way of relaying those impressive resumes without sharing a graphic of a bunch of players from other schools.
This isn’t the first time it has happened, and it won’t be the last. I still don’t get it though.
