Auburn president Jay Gogue wrote an open letter to Auburn students and fans on Thursday.

Auburn, Ala.—With the Auburn Tigers off to a disappointing 1-6 start, Auburn University President Jay Gogue released a statement to Auburn students and fans on Thursday aimed at keeping the support high for the team as it prepares for Texas A&M this weekend.

In addition to a planned show for support on Thursday with students and the community meeting outside Beard-Eaves Memorial Coliseum around 5:15 before walking in at the end of football practice, Gogue said he will also evaluate the football program as a whole after the season is concluded.

The full letter from Dr. Gogue:

The Auburn spirit is part of everything we do – in the classroom and beyond. It includes the spirit we show when we support those who represent us on the playing field.

Later today, Auburn students and the local community will gather to cheer on the football team as they practice. I encourage others to follow their example by coming together and getting behind the young men who wear the orange and blue each fall Saturday.

In the past few weeks, many of you have contacted me, and I appreciate everyone who has taken the time to share your thoughts about the football program. I know your concerns are sincere and heartfelt, and I share many of them. As we do every year, the football program will be evaluated in an objective, thorough and professional process.

For everything there is a time, and now is the time to support. The young men and women – our students – who make up Auburn University are grateful for the dedication of their extended Auburn Family. So am I.

War Eagle!

Jay Gogue

Auburn will take on Texas A&M this Saturday night at 6 p.m. on ESPNU. The game can be seen nationally on ESPNU.
