Video: Jay Jacobs calls health and safety argument about up-tempo offenses 'ridiculous'

Jay Jacobs has been Auburn's athletic director since 2004. His history with the school goes back even further, though, as he played on the Tigers' offensive line in the early 1980s and served as the team's conditioning coach from 1988-91. Earlier this week, the Ledger-Enquirer's Ryan Black caught up with Jacobs to discuss both Auburn's athletic programs as well as hot-button issues in the NCAA.
