  1. Had a nice long response typed up but this is going to get political in a New York Minute. Just get vaccinated, people.

  4. I heard last year that a lot of the team contracted COVID over the course of the spring and summer of 2020. If someone has immunity from prior infection, they should not be pressured to take the vaccine.

  5. Just an opinion. To me, with Texas and Oklahoma joining the SEC - just the concept of that idea, much less it actually happening - it signals the end of college football. Now, of course there is still literally going to be college football. There *will* always be some form of American universities competing on the grid iron. But the pillars that made college football different and fascinating are gone. College football has always been about proximity and history. It's the only major American sport (or global sport, really) that combines the popularity of pro sports with localized com

  6. If Harsin recognizes that the vax conversation is bigger than SEC football, then he should also understand that he is more than just a football coach as head of one of the biggest programs in the country. He's wasting a great opportunity to be a civic leader in a region that badly needs them. If he had cited the prior infection asterisk instead of the personal choice horsecrap, it would be a much different conversation. But I remember telling some folks that Idaho sensibilities aren't so different from Alabama sensibilities.

  7. This attitude is part of the problem. The strength of prior infection immunity is debatable. The vaccine immunity data is solid. If we could hit 70-80 percent, we could dramatically reduce Covid as an issue worldwide, reducing the probability of further mutation and transmission. Most wouldn't argue with an airline pilot if told to return to seats but so many do when life saving vaccines are readily available. To refuse a vaccine is a personal choice, but also a selfish one. I get there are a few people that legitimately cannot take the vaccine, but most of the reasons for refusal are just wil

  10. The poor recruiting rankings is a multiple problem question. Starts with COVID and not being able to go hit the road and see projects and coaching over the southeast in person. Then you have to rebuild the relationships that Gus and his staff didn't keep or burned over the past few years. Then you have to call and get these kids, who many haven't talked from someone at AU in years to come visits. Then you have to start from scratch and showing your vision in person to these kids. So this is going to be a building up process for a while. Over the next week we should have some 4* kids commit. An

  12. Really scary to me how we have such a large portion of society that believes it's their right to know other peoples personal medical statuses and also believe they have the right to demand people make certain medical decisions. Not even trying to be political. My stance has always been why should someone whose vaccinated care if others are? You're vaccinated so you're protected. Despite what many are saying, I think Harsin handled this well. He acknowledged the gravity of the situation, complemented the medical staff, and is allowing our players to make their personal and private choice. Downv

  13. Gus hired a firm to come in and look for bugs and hidden camera's around the complex and practice field before the 2019 Iron Bowl. He was convinced that bama had it bugged and was watching him. Stuff like this was happening all the time. Wasn't that teams could just watch film of the games and stop him. They were spying on him.

  15. This is stupid. He gets paid to win football, not be a medical expert. There's no right answer to this question for his position, he'd be crucified either way. The whole "he needs to be role model" or "greater good is at stake"- it's infuriating. COVID Vaccinations, much like votes and religion, are up to NOBODY but yourself. Disclaimer- I work in healthcare and got both doses of Moderna, and I think it's smart to get the vaccines, but it's 10000% not my choice to make for everyone else and there is a good bit of conflicting data out there.

  18. Just want to say one thing here about recruiting. Don't get caught up in the hype that these pay sites like Rivals and 247 are saying, the negative on the recruiting. These sites have been cut off by Harsin and it's become sour grapes. Just like the coaching search, recruiting isn't in the tanks. It's 10x more organized and run like a well oiled business now. Like the other schools we are up against. This will spill over to on and off field results here very shortly. I'd be very surprised if it didn't. Sure Harsin and staff are behind on this class. We all knew they would be. Gus and his

  21. No one ever said vaccinated people won't catch the virus. Vaccinated people won't die from it. There is less contagion within the Vaccinated. If everyone on the team was Vaccinated then covid would be significantly less prevailent. Vaccination isn't about eliminating the risk. Its about significantly reducing it. Harsin is putting politics above science and the well-being of the program if he keeps discussing getting Vaccinated in terms of pros and cons. They are not comparable.

  23. You can't bring in an AD and handcuff him. It's the reason the bigger names weren't interested in the AD job back when Greene was hired. "Come in and fix the financial woes" , then when Greene presented his plan to do this, was told he couldn't do some of the things he, Greene, thought was needed. (Fire people like Tim Jackson and others who are worthless). It was a train wreak. Now that Leath is gone and some of the "boys" have been exposed this should have changed. But Greene went down and pisses off his guys in the department. Why? It's really just mind numbing. Alienate the most popular co

  30. I don't know everything. But I am a very honored guy to know some of the people I do. So I get info on quite a bit. The stuff I do know to be very correct, I'll put here. Like the Steele coaching stuff. The Bill Clark turned AU down stuff. Lot of the Gus stuff. You get bit and pieces from several people and you can put the puzzle together. I'm no where as plugged in as I was 6 to 10 years ago. Gus took a toll on a lot of the people I know and they are pretty much done now. Hope to get some of these guys back. People had no idea how bad it was and got. Thank God for Steele and his bunch. S

  31. Come one guys. Steele was never a real candidate to get the AU job. Never. Maybe a money guy or two went to bat for their friend, but that was it. The folks making the decisions never considered Steele a real candidate. Most here really think Bill Clark turned down the AU job. When he never talked to anyone at AU. Napier? Never got an offer. This isn't some high conspiracy deal going on at AU with some huge power struggle. Folks need to calm down. This is about an AD who has pissed off some high profile, maybe the 2nd and one could argue he is the #1 most popular all time, coaches

  32. Not speaking for the mods. Just myself. It's frustrating as hell when each and every thread has the same person or persons in a pissing contest with someone. (Call it a debate if you will, but it's a pissing contest IMO). And it's not just one post and let it go, it goes on and on and on. Some (and probably most) come to the recruiting board to gather information on recruits, not to read personal opinions about whether Gus was good or great or deserved to be fired. That has nothing to do with recruiting. Take that stuff to the football board.

  37. The levels you are going to in trying to dampen the optimism being built by this new staff are pretty funny. Signing day is two months sooner, and recruiting was all over Zoom conferences until a month ago, meaning the coaches weren't able to use Auburn to sell Auburn (or visit recruits to get their foot in the door), but hey yeah it'll all be EXACTLY THE SAME AS IT WAS IN 2010!!! Oh yeah, btw, let's make a comparison that makes Harsin look worse than a coach who won more than 8 games exactly one time in his entire head coaching career. That's sure to knock all those optimists who underst

  41. Pulm and critical care physician at an academic medical center here. I’m tired of watching grown men and women cry when I tell them they’re going to have to be intubated due to COVID. I’m tired of seeing the fear in their eyes when they realize it’s not a ‘hoax’. I’m tired of watching their families cry. I’m tired of seeing them die from a preventable illness. I work in a division full of other lung and ICU doctors. Know how many have made the ‘personal decision’ not to get vaccinated after reading the literature? Zero. There is no controversy. Grow up and get the vaccine.

  42. Some very well documented activities and traits of college football players: Obesity, unprotected sex, drinking, smoking pot, ramming your head into a moving 300 pound target, squatting 500 pounds, benching 400 pounds, running sprints in 90 degree weather, taking excessive amounts of protein, being shot up with all kinds of pain killers in the medical tents, etc, etc, etc. All of the above implies all kind of risks, short and long term. Example: diabetes, STDs, concussion, CTE, heart failure, renal failure, herniated disc, etc. Seems to me a scientifically studied vaccine might not be the

  45. As you can see now this guy is a Gus fan and a troll. I wouldn’t waste my time on him anymore. In fact if people would just ignore him, he would have no ammunition. He is no different than the Twitter and Instagram young adults or teenagers who look forward to saying ridiculous things to get reactions. Stop feeding him. He has no intention of having a logical discussion and he has no intention of being a supporter of this coaching staff.

  46. I am fine with the approach. You have to establish a culture and not just chase stars. If they happen to be highly rated and fit then perfect. Once you establish an alpha mentality, they will have mass interest. And let's be honest, it takes an entire team to win. And when a bunch of players play like a team they become a family. The Auburn family is a culture that is beyond football and is the University itself, it is all of us.

  47. Could have up to 9. Told we should. But it is recruiting and these are kids. Just a reminder. Some folks here love to call me out if I'm wrong here. I'm not worried one bit about recruiting right now. Not one bit. Going to be a fun year in 2021 IMO. I'm looking forward to see what we have in this staff. Some great football coaches on this staff.

  48. Just to reiterate this is a not for-profit business (if it was we would have had to shutter the doors a long time ago). We’ve kept this thing going through good and lean times because we love Auburn, and think having this community is a huge asset for all of us to enjoy. Simply put, it’s an expensive labor of love. So, no, nobody is trying to slight any one. As others have said any donations literally help us keep the lights on. There are real costs to run a forum of this size - there just are. Anything we share on the donor boards is a mere simple gesture to say “thank you” for thos
