  1. Goodness...we just had a player CHOOSE to come and be one of us. That should be celebrated and he certainly shouldn't be booed before he even gets a chance. Some of you need to take a step back and be more supportive or take a step forward and go ahead and jump, your behavior is embarrassing. Welcome home ZC, good luck and War Eagle!

  2. Guys, it all makes sense now. We sent in Bo Nix as a trojan horse and he recruited three Ducks to Auburn. He still loves us!!!

  3. This is pure 100% BS, and put out by Phillip Marshall no less. It reeks of Gus Malzahn, or something the Nix family has floated out there. Auburn fans are no better nor worse than any other fans in CFB. Hell, go to a Bama message board after they lose and see the stuff they say about their players. Read the things they tweet. Pretty sure they were sending that kicker death threats when he lost the IB.

  4. But we lost 5 in a row... I'll say it again, it seems like a lot of recruits and players know a little more than some loud whiney fans.

  5. I’d say we are in good shape, because Harsin is getting all his ducks in a row. 😁

  6. Actually the possession you are talking about was great play calls. The first down call was beautiful. The receiver was open 5 yards behind the defense and the pass was 10 yards off the mark. The plays called are plays that are made to get points, not to run clock. It’s the same in the Alabama game. 7,9 or 10 minutes left in the game is not the time to go conservative when only leading by one score. Even as bad as Auburn’s Oline is, if Auburn had 5 other SEC quarterbacks playing for Auburn instead of their current team, I would say that three or touchdowns would have completed today .

  9. I'm longtime Anti-Gus. I'm pro-Harsin hire. Don't even start with that. But are we ready to admit there are some serious game management red flags with CBH? This was almost an exact rerun of Alabama. We completely seized up again in the 4th quarter. 30 total yards. Huge momentum shift with the Wooten INT, similar to the late 4th down stops in the IB. Houston was on death's door. But the 3 plays following that huge turnover couldn't have been worse. Two bombs. Going away from Tank, who had over 160 total yards. And of course, DD deserved at least one series today. He couldn't have possibly been worse than TJ today. The playcalling in non-clutch situations was better. But I don't know, man. The inability to finish games or situational play-call or make personnel decisions isn't going to be solved by the portal or recruiting. Somebody convince me this is a bug and not a feature.

  11. I hope folks are watching the Sugar Bowl. Matt Corrall is on crutches after an injury. Depending on how bad it is, could hurt his draft stock and cost him millions. This is a prime example of why we should never get upset when kids opt out of non-playoff games. Hope the kid is OK.

  14. Bo came at a time when we didn’t have all the pieces he needed to be a complete success. He got frustrated with his fellow players and coaches, that was clear on the sidelines. I feel sure that his family agreed, if not encouraged his frustration. He tried hard to make plays happen, and was successful at times and unsuccessful at others. That doesn’t mean he doesn’t have talent. Who knows what he may have been capable of if he had a perfect offense around him. BUT, football is not that way. There are always adversities to overcome. Auburn football wasn’t going to be perfect for him and he wasn’t going to be perfect for Auburn football. I’m interested to see what he can do with a different team. I have no hard feelings towards him at all, but I believe his family are doing him no favors. They need to support him in a positive manner and let him learn how to deal with criticism, whether it’s fair or not. Good luck, Bo.

  15. Been a while since I took a shot at one of these, so let's see if I remember how to do it. UK is a talented group, but this is a different AU team than in years past. Different even from the recent years where we were good. The primary reason is the quality and depth of our bigs. Kessler, Smith, Williams, Cardwell, Cambridge and Flanigan is as good a group of 3,4 & 5 that I remember at AU. Kentucky reminds me of Alabama but with much better bigs. They score from 2 with dribble drive and rebound well. They don’t shoot it that well but they do a good job of moving the ball and getting good looks. Wheeler is a solid point who looks to pass first and score second averaging nearly 8 assists per game. They have balanced scoring with 5 guys averaging double figures, and three more averaging more than 5. Their depth is good but not great. Only 7 players averaging double digit minutes, but 4 other guys average 6+ minutes. Our bench has a significant advantage in production tough, as I would estimate UK gets 90%+ of their overall production from their first 7 guys. Their team is obviously talented, but the only one I'm truely concerned about us being able to handle is their center Tshiebwe. He is a beast. He is what a classic 5 look like. He isn't going to step out and hit shots, but he will hit you in the mouth. He leads them in points and rebounds averaging 16 and 15 respectively. Kessler is going to get his toughness tested in a way we haven't seen yet. We saw the kid from Florida and Carolina give him trouble, but this dude here is different. Kessler CANNOT just hang out and play behind him all night. He will have to do a better job of establishing himself outside the block and/or fronting some in the post. We will also see how much he has learned from this foul troubles as UK will attack the rim. Matchup-wise, it looks pretty even, with us have an advantage at the 4 and them having the advantage at the 2. KD will be in for a touch challenge offensively and defensively. Smith will be guarded by some size and some quickness, and UK has multiple guys they can throw at him. I've already discussed Kessler, so the other interesting thing will be who does Zep guard. Tyty is their primary shot taker, and Zep may spend time on him and Wheeler. Texas AM had some success pressuring the guards out high and trapping so we may try to simulate that a bit as well. They have the advantage rebounding. They are elite at it and they are led by the best in the game Tshiebwe. We have to dig deep and avoid getting killed on the boards. I've posted in other places about my concerns with our rebounding habits and this is where I fear it rears its ugly head. We get hammered, they get out in transition and we lose. We have the advantage in blocks/steals. We are getting a block or steal on nearly 25% of teams possessions. That may help us on the rebounding front if we can have similar success against UK. This leads us out into transition and off we go. We are also a better outside shooting team. In part because we take more, but mainly because we have more guys that can and will shoot it. One other positive is UK has not played well on the road. Actually, the look pretty bad on the road. They are 2-2 averaging around only 66 points. The atmosphere looks like it may play a role in this one, and obviously in our favor. We do not need our best game to win this one, but we can't hurt ourselves either. I personally think if both teams play to their averages it is a coin flip . I like our chances at home obviously, but I think we need someone to step up. Smith and Kessler are the big names, but I think the guy who has a chance to steal the show is Flannigan. His mix of power and shooting is under appreciated, probably by me as well . With the defensive attention others will get, I would like to see Flannigan be extra aggressive in this one. This is a big game. A lot of eyes will be on AU after all the talk about getting snubbed for the #1 spot in the AP poll. Additionally, no matter what, you're not the favorite to win this league until you beat UK. They have earned that place and that's where they still sit. Will post more in this thread as the game approaches hopefully ... War Eagle!!!!

  19. CDM has made plenty of money. Perhaps he wasn't quite as hungry as he once was. RIR said he had not been around the complex much since before the b'ham bowl. Coach Eason heard momma calling and had positive things to say about Hars on the way out the door. Jimmy B is younger than Eason, and he is a legacy. His last 2 gigs did not go as he had planned. The new LB coach is a young man from Atlanta. The new DC hasn't made plenty of money. Maybe these guys are all hungry. Jimmy B needs to turn around his career and this is his home. The new LB coach seems to be a great recruiter from an area we need to recruit well. Sch...... needs to do well for his career. Maybe this all works out really well. War Eagle always.

  20. With or without lawyer guy's input, we've got a chance until we don't. *rant incoming, feel free to not read* What I do know is that all of you folks who are in such a hurry to call BS every time a positive possibility doesn't pan out for us need to chill the hell out. Guess what? Bob Stoops really did almost coach here. We really did have a shot at Mario Cristobal, too. And whether or not the Williams kid plays here, we were very much in it til the end. Just because it didn't happen doesn't mean most of what was said wasn't true. You're never going to see direct quotes about any of this stuff that happens. Look at us hiring Bryan Harsin. Nobody knew a damned thing about it until it became a reality and you've still never seen a shred of evidence about how those conversations went down. So just chill the hell out, cross your fingers for good news, and don't try to act some kind of way no matter what happens. We shoot out shots. Some go in, some don't.

  21. Have enjoyed following this site for a long time but had to sign up to respond to the above. “Was much easier at Boise State” “ No foundation in the SEC”, “Boise State Ideology”etc...Women and many male fans on this site have never been hit in the mouth on a football field at any level. Just stop. Any D1 game in any conference is hard physical and mental work at a very high level, with pain involved. Players give and receive blows that feels the same no matter how many recruiting stars they came in with. Ask any of the Power 5 schools that have been beaten by Boise through the years if Boise knows what it takes to compete, either on scheme or physicality. Boise is 6-3 all time vs top 10 teams. Auburn plays more highly ranked teams because of the conference they’re in- but, look it up- has a losing record all time vs top 10 teams. Go watch the last five minutes of regulation + overtime of ‘O7 Fiesta bowl on YouTube- Boise/Oklahoma- and then look up who the Boise offensive coordinator was. That was 15 years ago that Harsin was coaching that game and winning at the highest college level. Saban and Meyer didn’t’ start out their college coaching in the SEC. Pete Carroll, Chris Peterson, Gary Patterson, Bob Stoops (loser to Harsin/Boise in that bowl game) and others considered some of the best modern era coaches in the college game, did not have “SEC ideology”. It will be fun to watch what the combination of “ Boise Boys” some of you are so derisive about, mixed with former Auburn players/now coaches, and a couple NFL coaches, can do evaluating/recruiting/developing talent, and devising game plans and making in-game adjustments at Auburn. Sure a more interesting mix of experience than what Gustavo put together most of his years at Auburn.

  25. He is visiting a lot of places. He will not be a part of this class. We are good on the DL anyways. Play stupid games win stupid prizes. Having a signing day ceremony "sneak up on you" is one of the all time worst excuses I have heard. especially from a high school football coach who has gone through this several times. Like bruh just be honest and up front. We know what you are doing.

  28. I've been holding back waiting......I didn't want to jump the gun. But seriously his skill set......he has KD potential. I'm not saying he is or even will be but he's the closest thing to Kevin Durant in a while. His game, he'll be better in the pros than he is now. If his handle continues to improve....I'm telling you this is something very special here. Please don't hold future guys and compare them to this guy. This is a unicorn. We were lucky to have him.

  31. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^This^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ People can hate on these guys all they want, but for this to be considered anything other than a HUGE win for CBH and Auburn is absurd. 2 guys with tons of experience. I hope we pull 2 starter level guys from the portal, one IOL and one OT next year may start looking a lot brighter.

  32. There is no discernible value other than nosiness for fans to know specifically why someone gets dismissed from the team. I’ve had the unpleasant task of firing someone and I’ve never felt compelled to share why with anyone outside of our immediate organization and HR. In the Army, I had a friend who was a company commander. He had a board with various levels of rank pinned into it. As part of onboarding new soldiers, he would show the board to them and ask if they knew what it was. They would always answer the same: “That is rank you’ve taken from soldiers for breaking the rules.” His answer was always the same: “No. That is rank soldiers have chosen to give back to me for not adhering to the standards of our unit.” To this day that sticks with me as the right mindset. The coach didn't kick you off. You chose not to be here. KH is very talented and I hope he finds success wherever he lands.

  35. This is as BS and anything I've ever seen. Message boards and twitter don't cost AU or anyone recruits. I might now know a lot about the X's and O's of football but I damn sure know recruiting and how it works. Have any of you looked at LSU's boards and twitter this year? Kentucky after that loss last weekend? Brutal. PAM and people like him, those of who rely on people with an agenda, are the ones who are the problems. All of that bull**** he wrote about the coaching search, none of it was anywhere close to true. He is the problem. Ex Au coach, who was FIRED, was his source on this one. So if you support his site you are hurting AU more than the mean old twitters. Fact. I've talked with these kids, They are not blind sheet being steering by the mean old internet fans.

  38. https://auburn.rivals.com/news/stultz-auburn-to-kentucky-it-s-not-you-it-s-me STULTZ - Auburn to Kentucky: It's not you, it's me CAt one point in everyone’s lives, most of us either use or have been told the age-trusted line of, “It’s not you, it’s me” when ending a relationship. It somewhat helps lessen the blow to the person getting dumped and is probably the easiest way to end things. Well, this applies to celebrations as well, it seems in college sports. See, Kentucky fans want to take all the credit for what happened on the Plains yesterday, a historic day that Auburn fans have pleaded for quite some time. Fans of Big Blue Nation saw students camping out in the bitter cold, Auburn Arena rocking at an ear-splitting volume and, afterward, fans spilling out at Toomer’s Corner to roll the trees. (Sorry, guys. Auburn fans don’t burn couches.) Their response was an arrogant and condescending, “That’s because they played us.” Bless their hearts. No, this day was all about Auburn. It was about a program with little to no history making likely just that with a win that all but sealed a first-ever No. 1 ranking. It was about a team that fans have fallen in love with faster than any plot of a Hallmark Christmas movie. It was about a man named Bruce Pearl, what he has made out of a program left in shambles by years of maltreatment. It was about every player that ever put on an Auburn uniform before and will in the future. The enthusiasm for Auburn basketball right now made it unnecessary who the opponent on Saturday was. After coming so close to reaching the top of the polls last week and falling short due to some inane voting, the tension and atmosphere were building long before John Calipari’s team arrived. Students lined up hours before the Tigers took on a 5-12 Georgia team. There was some proving to be done by Pearl’s squad, and it reached an earthquake-inducing pitch as it became clear that Auburn would win and that mountain top was in sight. Yes, the Kentucky brand still means a lot in college basketball, but the notion that this was all about the matchup against the Wildcats misses the big picture entirely. And, to be fair, #BBN should be aware of this as their football program continues to make strides to SEC East contenders year in and year out. So, the next time Kroger Field is full against national champion Georgia, will you say it is all about the Dawgs? Of course not. The sights coming out of Auburn were pure joy. Delight in a team recording the best start in program history, the fact that (holy moly) the Tigers have the likely No. 1 pick in Jabari Smith Jr. and that Auburn, yes, Auburn, is currently the best team in college basketball. That fact would get edited out of even the most insane fiction book due to absurdity. It’s already been a great season for the Tigers, and much more is to come. Auburn fans are enjoying this ride and will continue until the end. Saturday was about many things, but it wasn’t about Kentucky. Sorry, Wildcats. It’s not you. It’s Auburn.

  40. As it's been said, it's the OL. We can't create any balance on O because of it. Running inside is a joke, running outside is hit or miss, play action doesn't work because we aren't a threat to consistently run the ball, any designed drop backs more than 3 step result in busted assignments, intense pressure, or a sack. If we do manage to get time to throw, our QBs rush most of the passes and are highly erratic and inaccurate.
