  1. Talking with my friend Doug Saturday morning, I found myself calling the LSU game “pivotal” for Auburn and Coach Harsin. It was just a casual conversation about the upcoming game, but once the game was over, I felt even more strongly that this game was something of a milestone in Harsin’s rebuilding of the program. Auburn passed that milestone in rather splendid fashion. No, we are certainly not “there” by any means, but we aren’t where we started, either. To go to Baton Rouge on a Saturday night and take down a desperate LSU and 90,000 of their fans is no small accomplishment. Had A

  4. We are all fans, and some are more easily frustrated than others. The more easily frustrated tend to indulge in the blame game. I am certainly no more than a fan, and the next game I coach will be my first. However, I’m seeing discernible improvement in this team from week to week. To a degree I cannot recall in many years of Auburn teams. I hope this is sustainable…especially with Bo. I’m also thinking that many of us should sit down, STFU, and enjoy this team improving.

  5. Malzahn was 0-13 against Alabama, LSU, and Georgia away from Jordan-Hare Stadium. Bryan Harsin is 1-0. Yeah, it's early, but I genuinely believe we are heading in the right direction. Probably going to take a couple of years before we're competing for championships, but this win gives Harsin a bit of a signature to carry him forward, pushing away those who would nag and complain and end up running him off before he's able to implement his system.

  6. We are 4-1 with an 8-point loss on the road against a team that will probably move up to #3 in the country...in year one after the last guy got fired. Auburn fans like usual, have zero perspective and are living in loony land. This is not a complete team. How can it be complete in year one when the last coach was fired? This is a growing year - and they just did something that neither of the last two coaches managed to do. I'm tired of seeing posts from people who seem to be suggesting that we're supposed to be competing for a championship this year, or something.

  7. For a while now we've had a small group of posters that regularly get into it with each other on various threads. It usually starts with some disagreement over the team - coaching decisions, what players should be playing, whose fault a loss or lack of success is, and so on. But then it quickly morphs into a bunch of personal bickering and name calling. A lot of it comes from a long history of animosity between the posters in question, with people dredging up old conversations or arguments to prove some unimportant point. But the end result is, these few people end up taking over a thread

  8. This was a great day to be an Auburn Tiger! Specifically I want to congratulate Bo Nix. He accomplished as our starting quarterback something no other Auburn quarterback has done since 1999. Considering everything said about him this past week, and being benched last game, Bo went out there with a fire and desire to make sure we did not lose. I am incredibly proud to be an Auburn Tiger and incredibly proud of Bo. Enjoy the win!

  10. I’m done with this for the day but I will summarize my opinion because everyone can’t wait to hear it 😂 I support Coach Harsin in everything he is doing right now. If something happened that Coach felt like Corn deserved to be fired for then so be it. He benched our starting QB yesterday. He benched Tank on the last drive. He benched the majority of the starting WR’s on the last couple of drives. I believe that accountability has arrived in town in the form of Coach Harsin. There may be more heads that roll, who knows. I think the message is clear. Be prepared to perform or be prepared to pack

  11. Upon Further Review – Georgia During the last three games, Tank Bigsby has 115 yards on 37 attempts (3.11 YPC), Jarquez Hunter has 145 yards on 21 carries (6.90 YPC). Jarquez needs to have more touches during the second-half of the regular season and certainly more than Shaun Shivers. During the first five games, the Auburn defense surrendered seven plays of at least 30 yards. Georgia totaled four such plays, a significant difference in the outcome of the game. Auburn is now 11-13 since 2006, when the opposition has at least four plays of at least 30 yards during a game.

  14. I really don't believe it's purely about performance, i.e. catches and drops. Harsin has been acting like the WR room as a whole doesn't know the offense, don't know where they are supposed to be, and don't know what they are supposed to be doing. If that's the case, what do you do as a coach? Those comments came after Penn State. If Harsin addressed it last week, and the same problems persisted yesterday, you are supposed to keep that coach around?

  15. We fought like hell. The turnover to start the 2nd half was killer. I didn’t like the corner route in the end zone. We got burned by the TEs too many times. But overall I see so many reasons for hope. This is a hard nosed football team now. Put this game in Auburn and it’s a W. But unlike with Gus, we weren’t out there s***ting the bed on offense.

  23. When Auburn signed Bo Nix, some publications had him listed as a 5-star recruit, setting high expectations for the high school senior. Because Jarrett Stidham elected to forgo his senior year, Nix was thrown into the starting lineup as a true freshman. He would end up facing six teams that would win at least 11 games that year, something no collegiate quarterback has ever faced as a true freshman. During his twenty-four starts as an Auburn Tiger against Power-5 competition, Auburn averaged only 160 yards rushing per game. Of those 24 games, 13 opponents had a winning record, and Auburn average

  25. AU-24 and Power of Dixieland have been given multiple day suspensions for their behavior here tonight. I warned several of you about this ongoing personal bickering crap a few days ago and I wasn't kidding. Seriously, we're over it. If someone drives you that crazy that you have to bog down every other thread with pages of potshots and arguing, put them on ignore and if that doesn't work and you just can't resist, leave. Because if you don't figure out how to gain some self control over it, we'll handle it for you.

  27. I'm tired. I fought hard. Really I believed down until the end. I am done with Bo Nix and I think the change had to be made. Was TJ great? No. He had a good number of over throws and a pass or two that looked very turnover-able. But his connection with guys like Capers and Canion brought a different element to the passing game. He has more velocity on the ball and his decision making was largely sound. We lose some mobility with him for sure (his acceleration isn't great but when he gets up to speed he's decent). Maybe the team needed something new? Maybe there's more behind the

  28. We beat Arkansas that, was ranked 17th, on the road, at 11 am. That is a really big win for a first year coach. And Nix looked near perfect aside from a bad decision on an interception. Not sure why you would come here immediately after a win to crap on it. We lost to Georgia primarily because of poor QB and receiver play. What we saw today was a complete 180 in play for those groups. Anybody claiming to be a fan should be really happy with this win.

  29. Good morning all, I hope this thread finds you well as our weather continues to turn into true Fall weather. We are now halfway through Bryan Harsin's first season as our head coach with the conclusion of the Georgia game. Here are a few observations I had from inside of the stadium: Tailgating: The level of tailgating at this game was another level. One that I have not seen in a while. This could have been a lot of things, including a lot of Georgia tailgaters, but perhaps we are seeing more Auburn fans coming back to tailgate with out new head coach in town. It was fun to see

  30. I think people will be surprised at the gains theses players will have after a full year under this staff. We're not there, but we're obviously headed on the right path. Growing pains suck, but with under-coached young players, it's inevitable.

  31. Definitively will say this had nothing to do with "making a statement" so we can stop that stupid s***. It also isn't some weird Boise-bias dumb narrative that's getting stirred up. All spring we have heard how inconsistent the receivers have been, drops have been absolutely ridiculous in the worst possible moments, blocking has not been great by wide receivers, there were multiple times in the game this week where we had 10 players on the field. One time TJ had to waste time on a short game clock to wave a player onto the field (and miraculously did so in a way that didn't cause an

  32. The SEC network is running an SEC Storied episode "More Than A Voice". It's about the great radio announcers from around the conference. It's very well done, overall. Auburn got a lot of minutes of coverage with Jim and Rod's great calls and commentary on the men themselves. I watched it last night and highly recommend it. It's certain to be replayed several times over the next few days and weeks. Catch it if you can, you'll be glad that you did.

  36. For the more objective guys you can see where this is going.....Let's talk what really happened this game without all of the emotion. QB play: Well it depends how you look at this right? If you go by where he was at I'd say he's improved. But talking strictly this game he's a very average mediocre QB. But I feel like I'll need at least one but maybe two more games and I'll tell you everything you'll need to know. As far as this game he's not a star or a high level performer. He may never be able to push the ball down field. Everybody saw the one throw that could have lost us the game

  37. Classic trap game. Emotional let down after a big loss in a huge game vs an offense that you only see once a year. Combine that with the offensive struggles and the new zone defense scheme and this game should have been expected. Took guts to pick ourselves up and win the game. Take the W, move on to LSU. This is part of the growing pains we should have expected this year. War Eagle.

  38. I mean, Harsin has been a head coach for a good while now and he doesn't have a track record of tossing coaches midseason to my knowledge. And he's got the most comprehensive and most 'inside' view of what's happening out there and what a play was supposed to look like vs how it was run by every position. So if I've got to lean one way or the other, right now unless more info comes out, I'm giving the head coach the benefit of the doubt here.

  42. I was a walk on in 84 & 85. Bo was not lazy. He was at every practice unless the SID department had him off at some PR event, which didn't happen too frequently during the season. There was no way Coach Dye or anyone else wouldn't have recognized his talent or athleticism. I've told people that Bo Jackson was as much of a freak of nature as a 2 headed cow, and I don't mean that disrespectfully. He was a freak of an athlete. A "once in a lifetime" kind of athlete. So far I like what Harsin has done. Keep in mind he is primarily playing with Gus' players. He's having to start

  43. Here's one truism: Coaches don't put players in the game, players put themselves into the game or on the bench, depending on a number of factors. Lets give Harsin a chance. All we can do is hope he knows what he is doing.

  45. I'm not as much into the NFL as I use to be so this is quite the coincidence. I was channel surfing and landed on an NFL game. It was the KC Chiefs vs Philadelphia Eagles and I decided to watch a few plays. About 5 minutes later one announcer said to the other, "I don't know if you watched the Auburn-LSU game last night. What Bo Nix did in the game on that play is what Jalen Hurts (Eagles QB) was trying to do right there." Kind of a cool mention and a nice recognition for Bo and Auburn so I wanted to pass it along. I have a feeling "the play" is going to be remembered for a long time.

  46. Firstly, I want to apologize to Bo for writing him off. But I want to say this. We are 2-3 right now without TJ Finley and I want people to understand that. TJ not only saved us last week, but the reality of being benched clearly sent Bo to a different mindset. And tonight, we were pretty stagnant on offense until after TJ's drive. I know this role probably isn't what TJ had in mind. He looked pretty dejected after coming out. But I want to thank him for being a team player, and I want to thank him for these wins the last 2 weeks. There is no way we could have done it without y

  48. Don't think this is meltdown worthy at all. Most fans predicted this loss before getting jazzed up from our first two games. Heck, most said they'd be okay with it if we were competitive. We're two play calls from winning this game in my opinion. QB - Bo completed 57% with a decent amount of drops and a few throw aways. If I told you he threw for 185 and no turnovers you'd think it's a win. He ran for an additional 19 and one critical conversion. Had one pass that should have been intercepted and one way off after tweaking his shoulder that stood out to me. Otherwise I feel like h
