  2. Who in the SEC would have K-Mart as the #1 back? Name one? AU tried it last year and it didn't work. K-Mart is a 5 - 10 carry per game back change of pace back. Not a knock on him but that is what he is. Miller isn't a SEC back either and saying he is because of mop up duty and forced into action because the other RB's were hurt also doesn't help you cuase here. Shivers? Has the heart and skill. But he is small. Can he take the beating day in and day out in the SEC? Maybe? If you are Gus and your job is on the line do you chance he can? Boobie? Yeah he can be the guy. But his running style can be a problem. He is a very physical runner. Has to learn when to and when not to take on the hits. Williams? He isn't even on campus. Has the tools. But is a unknown.

    New RB Coach wants and news

    Had a text saying that this morning. Hopefully he will transition into the recruiter that is needed for the position

    What is off about this team?

    Despite the issues I still think we win more than half our SEC games and make the big dance .... about a 6 or 7. Watching them play however it still makes me laugh ...our guys looking to go NBA last year and getting their evaluations.
  5. Asa wasn't a top target for Horton or Gus before Chip was hired. Chip made him the priority. FWIW.

    Caddy got the job. Not sure he is ready. He isn't a T-Will in the livingroom.

    Men vs. South Carolina game thread

    Good points...and about any good team can score 80 on us now.....no inside defense and mediocre rebounding....

    Men vs. South Carolina game thread

    this is the truth and the rah rah folks won't like you saying it, but you hit the nail on the head with the hammer of the obvious....you can see the glaring lack of toughness and the basketball stupidity every time we play someone that has some toughness and plays smart......chuma needs to be benched to get his attention before he lets his softness ruin his career

    I am starting to think Bruce Pearl is our Mark Jackson , but where is the next Steve Kerr. And no this is not a knock on Pearl if you get the context .

    What is off about this team?

    A few things.... We have two players starting that stop the flow of the ball. Both dribble in place for 5+ seconds and either jack up a three, try a weak drive, or get turned over. We don't have any player that can create their own shot besides Harper We don't have anyone that can remotely finish at the rim consistently We don't reward our bigs for working hard to establish position Our off ball movement is slow, uninspired, or without purpose We ignore mismatches Down low. Our guards think that if a switch happens and a big steps out it means to jack a 3 Our fast break O is more concerned about the highlight than the points so we miss a lot of easy opportunities. We give up too many offensive boards and look lost on the resets.

    No true big man who can out muscle the other guy without fouling(out)

    What is off about this team?

    We dont drive enough and when we do, we often have problems finishing. We also lack any consistent low post scoring presence, forcing us to drive or just jack up 3s. Chuma is the only one of those 3 I can really see getting better in low post. I just dont think Wiley has it in him at this point. Hes huge and 5% body fat, yet always looks a little slow and stiff to me with his back to the basket. I hope I'm wrong and he can get it going. Purifoy literally has no inside game and is rather stiff too. Chuma looks fluid at times, but looks timid to me. Pearl desperately needs inside scorers. And none of our guys seem to be able to pass when posted up.

    Music Thread v.1.5(POST YOUR TUNES!)

    Awesome show last night. It was an incredibly satisfying set list. Some included tunes: Seek & Destroy, Four Hotseman, Anesthesia For Whom the 🔔 Toll, Creeping Death Battery, Master of Puppets, Sanitarium One Sad but True, Sandmann The Memory Remains ... and more

    unfortunate, but also true

    Men vs. South Carolina game thread

    neither do i.....this bunch is not tough enough....they have talent, but that toughness is not there except for horace,harper and dunbar....wiley is coming on, but keeps getting set back by his feet and legs....i honestly think there will be more toughness next year due to the incoming FRESHMAN!!!! that,based on video, and how agressive they play....it will take a while to establish them to college basketball and grow their bodies,though....the incoming class will end up being special, even as early as next year....i had to change my hopes for this year from a final 4 to just making the tourney....really disappointing

    Grad Transfer HB Jay Jay Wilson Commits to AU!

    To be fair the film we have on Wilson blocking is from two years ago. The reason he wasn’t good on that film was effort. If he gives effort, with his athleticism, he could be very good blocking.

    Nathan Phillips is not a Vietnam veteran

    The amount of fail in that sentence....
  20. This isn’t true. We’ve lost it. Besides, Georgia has Herschel Walker, Knowshon, Nick Chubb, Sony Michel, Gurley, and other alumni and actually recruit like RBU.

    Grad Transfer HB Jay Jay Wilson Commits to AU!

    Absolutely not. Not even close. I know someone is just gonna call me negative, but they aren't even on the same page. Have you watched either play? As someone else said, Wilson needs to greatly improve his blocking to be even adequate. Prosch was/is an NFL FB. Wilson needs to eat his Wheaties to even be in the same breath as Prosch.
  22. You have to think it through. It's at a point Mikey isn't ever going to agree. It's not that he doesn't understand but he said things in the past and he has to double down on them.

    No mental error by Ford, Chiefs go to the Super Bowl and the DC probably doesn’t get fired. Translation: Ford kilt Bob Sutton.

    New RB Coach wants and news

    I didn't think it would be so difficult to find out. Either Porter or Horton. Wiki (I know I know Wiki) says it's Porter. But then again, USA Today also says Porter... Yet the Auburn official site says Horton So I'm not sure what to believe 🤷‍♂️

    It's not over but we will have to adjust

    A few things. Who on here is appointed anything? This coming from somebody who selfappointed themselves an evaluator of linebackers is hilarious....somebody told you that you knew ANYTHING about linebackers, I just didn't think you actually believed it. I never called myself a guru you emphasized self appointed could you show that? You've mentioned it before seems like you're insecure about me knowing basketball....I don't know how that works. You may think I'm guessing....if I am I'm the luckiest guy on here huh? When I'm wrong I'm no where to be found....can you show that or are you just talking as usual? It was a joke but yeah I'm going to always bring it up because every single time I voice an opinion you're going to come around and tell me how I'm wrong while insulting me but can't man up after the fact when I'm right. Give US a break? Don't kid yourself Mikey, NOBODY LIKES YOU. The other members of the Gus fantastic five doesn't even like you. You don't have a team or anything, nobody associates themselves with you. If a 3 month from me would be nice a year from you would be fantastic, you literally offer nothing. You don't have a sense a humor, you're an hypocrite, you don't know what the hell you talk about, you get called out at least once a week for contradicting yourself. You're not even an original Au64 is much better at doing what you attempt to do. You're merely just a great value version of him. Long as he's here we don't need his family dollar knock off...... And I resent the basketball stuff....I'm just as awesome with football as well
  26. We all know that you are the self-appointed guru of the basketball forum, but let's never forget the self-appointed part. Nobody owes you an apology. How presumptuous! You post various opinions and guesses. When they prove correct you show up to crow about it and beat your chest. When you are wrong you're nowhere to be found. Owe you an apology? Give us a break. (A three month break would be nice)
