  1. Things we know: 1) Wearing a mask absolutely helps limit transmission of what is mostly a virus spread by respiratory droplets. Limiting close contact is also important. Staying 6 feet away from someone is a good way to limit spread. 2) The vast majority of people under the age of 70 recover after a few days of illness that resembles the flu. During that time, those people should be cautious to stay away from others and notify close contacts so that they can also quarantine to help limit spread. Testing to know whether or not you indeed have the virus is now recommended to trace cont

  2. Game #6 Statistical Evaluation (LSU Game) I don’t believe the most ardent Auburn fan would believe Auburn could amass over 500-yards and 48 points against LSU with Seth Williams and Tank Bigsby accounting for a combined 142-yards. Chad Morris did an exceptional job of spreading the football around with Bo Nix (rushing), Anthony Schwartz, and Eli Stove, accounting for a combined 290-yards. The offense played a near-perfect game as the Tigers continue to improve as the season progresses. Bo Nix had the best performance of his collegiate career, totaling 381-yards of total offense and four t

  3. Over the past 10 years, Auburn has... Played for a national title in football, made a final four, and made the college baseball world series, while also having a top 5 pick in the NFL, MLB, and NBA draft. Know how many other schools can claim that? 0.

  6. Great topic. My Aundray Bruce story.....he was a freshman when I was a junior and he was recruited by someone on my intramural basketball team to come in and play a game with us. He was a tall, muscular physical freak and you really realize up close that athletes of that caliber really are made of "different stuff" from the rest of us. Anyway, we were up by one point with about 5 secs to go in the game. We had ball out under the other teams's goal. I knew exactly what it would take to run out the clock so I said for Aundray to break long, I would throw the ball up for him, he woul

  7. As some of you know I lost my mom this year to cancer (her second round with the evil disease). It's amazing what these guys overcame and I love Auburn for sticking with guys like this. I believe we had another player (Shon Coleman right?) with similar issues. Today was my brother's birthday and it was the first one in my family that my mom has missed. Love your close ones and if you ever can, help donate to fighting cancer.

  8. Play calls were logical. When it was 3rd and short, we either ran it or threw a short, easily completable pass. You didn't see single receiver deep passes on those plays. We made the run/pass mix unpredictable. Most importantly, we did t focus solely on Seth. Seth, Stove, Schwartz, Capers, Pegues, Worm, all had completions. We finally had balance across the board and by doing so, we made it look easy.

  10. ....is all the time needed for Bo to release a 46 yard pass to hit Anthony Swartz in stride. Ball snapped with 19 on the play clock. Ball leaves Bo’s hand at 16 sec. 6 seconds to get the ball 45 yards down field. Play clock 13. Finally, 11 seconds to go 91 yards with Swartz pulling up at the 5. 8 seconds on the play clock. The defense looked like man under with 2 deep over the top. Swartz had the over the top coverage beat 25 yards down the field. All it took was 3 seconds of protection for Bo to drop the ball in perfectly. This play gives our offense hope.

  13. Here is what I believe and have believed: Auburn fans in real life are addicted to the role of the underdog. It just provides such an awesome storyline and Auburn fans love storylines. Its the lifeblood of the program. If Auburn were to actually be a competent school and began picking on team with a competent offense and crushing defense that didn't rely on things like "Prayers" and "Miracles" it would kill what they believed Auburn to be. The addiction to storylines is why we also see so much Copium in regards to the "Legend of Bo Nix" despite the fact that all of Twitter and the CFB wor

  14. The fact that the game against UT is considered a “big” game is a sad statement and speaks to the mediocrity of the program under Malzahn, whether people want to acknowledge that mediocrity or not. Claiming that Malzahn can’t be fired because of the finances of his contract is semi-understandable; it’s the “we shouldn’t fire him because we are unlikely to ever do better” mentality that has people circling a game against a 2-4 UT team that has lost its last 4 games by an average of 23 points. What a pathetic situation Gus has put AU football in.....SMDH

  15. I’ve been working through this whole mess the entire time in close proximity with a small staff, masked up and washing hands frequently. Seeing hundreds of people and handling thousands of dollars a day. Because of that, my wife and I aren’t going to her family’s Thanksgiving because her grandmother is in poor health. Nothing would destroy me more than if I were to unknowingly bring a deadly virus into a family gathering that ultimately killed her grandmother. Why people still can’t wrap their minds around that idea is beyond me. We had our first employee test positive three weeks ag

  17. LSU in '17, UGA in '15 &'16, and Clemson '16 & '17 were 4 of the absolutely worst games I can remember. Just complete and pure abject failures with absolutely zero redeeming aspects. Him surviving '16 confounded me beyond any words. Him following his '16 debacles with the inexplicable defeats of '17 and turning them into the worst contract in CFB history just made me indifferent and apathetic.

  18. In 2008, Auburn and Tennessee both fired long time coaches. Since then, Tennessee has been a dumpster fire of losing and failed coaches. Since then, Auburn ha won a national title and played for a second, won two SEC titles and played for a third. Auburn players have also won a Heisman and Lombardi trophies and we have twice had the national coach of the year. The only losing season during this time was 2012, the only year Gus was not in Auburn. Like it or not, Gus is the difference between Auburn and Tennessee since 2008. Tennessee, Texas, and Michigan are all programs with more historic

  22. This is it. And most fall for it every single time. We are going to kill miss st because they suck, we've been on a run against the teams that suck, and we play a solid team and get destroyed. This season and where we are right now is a wonderful example. And most are content with it. There's only 3 teams that are teams that can really be viewed as a team that's a good match up. Then we beat everybody else and people buy into it....until we play a team with a pulse. We'll kill miss st and watch this offense has turned a corner Bo is the best QB, tank is the best hb, then we play a team wi

  23. Game #7 Statistical Evaluation (Tennessee Game) All three phases of the game had a passing grade, though it did not feel that way on defense. Auburn’s inability to defend the run during the second half limited the Tigers to just three offensive possessions. The early loss of Tank Bigsby hindered the explosiveness of the running game. D.J. Williams and Shaun Shivers did combine for 131 yards on 25 carries. The running game was enough to keep the offense balanced, but Auburn was held to just eight possessions during the game. Both teams struggled inside the red zone, with Auburn scoring 13

  24. Every school recruits better when they can get recruits on campus. However, there are quite clearly coaches all around the country who can recruit based off of their own ability to sell themselves, their vision, their program, and their accomplishments. Do none of you realize that Clemson has the exact same "stigma" as Auburn? So much so that its moniker for years has been "Auburn with a Lake". Clemson, South Carolina is even smaller than Auburn - with a population of a whopping ~18,000. It is not a bustling urban metropolis with flash and excitement. They have historically faced the same requ

  25. The mentality of “we might end up worse than the mediocrity we are certain of” is such a loser mindset. You need look no further than our own men’s basketball program to see the incredible difference the right hire can make in a program. Could we do worse than Gus? Of course. Will Gus ever be the guy to lead us to the”next level”? Of course NOT.

  28. Hope AU loses badly? You don't care anything about our players feelings, do you? Me, I hope we win the next 25+ games, two national championships and Gus gets another big raise, extension and huge buyout. Anybody that wouldn't like that to happen isn't much of an Auburn fan.

  29. If we want to remain what we've historically been then we stand pat and embrace .667. Other teams in the conference don't have to worry about putting Auburn in its place. We have people willing to do that ourselves.

  37. The issue is this ridiculous protocol, 14 day minimum mandatory quarantine even for those who test negative is the most asinine thing this conference has ever implemented. College kids will party, socialize and hang out in general, it's what they do.

  39. Here's my take. College football, in our conference especially, is a different animal from what it was in the 80's, 90's, or even the early 2000's. We have at least three of our major rivals who have drastically stepped up their game. The question is, is Auburn committed to putting forth the effort to keep up? If not, then we should be able to maintain mediocrity for far less money. Gus is paid championship caliber money, and has failed to produce championship quality results. No other way to spin it.

  40. So, is Fleck now joining the long list of coaches who posters on this board wanted to replace Gus with? I could start with Bobby Petrino, jump over a few to Scott Frost, Jeff Brohm and now Fleck. I suppose when Cristobal loses two games he'll be in the garbage can too. But, we sure have dodged some bullets by standing pat, haven't we?

  45. This is such an overly simplistic and immensely problematic stance for a wide multitude of reasons. Your entire premise is built around the false equivalency that college coaching exists in a vacuum wherein every job is equivalent in nature and thus a 1-to-1 comparison is possible. Any deep analysis of the actual nature of college football however shows the complete opposite: the same exact head coach would have grossly different outcomes at 5 different schools. Every job in the country presents its own unique challenges and benefits, such that this childish argument of "hey this one guy some
