  1. Seriously? Many would be very hard pressed to name 3-5 college secondary coaches off the top of their heads. Just because one hasn't heard of someone doesn't mean they aren't a good coach or good hire. Obviously spending ~20years in the NFL dictates he might know his craft.

  2. Like him or not, I think he is a super guy. He and his family are great people. I think this was about as good a move as both parties could make considering. I agree that the pressure is on now for Gus and company to put up.

  7. Yeah, its obvious K Briles is a hot commodity. FAU is a football powerhouse.

  8. One of the biggest assets in recruiting is you're track record and resume. To be able to say you are the only coach to have coached 3 Thorpe award winners is damn impressive. Teaching the position leads to the league, which leads to recruits wanting to come . Recruiting without development is a program killer.

  10. You guys are being awful flippant and dismissive about a kid who's willing to stay and change his role if it helps the team. I say welcome back John! And War Eagle!

  12. Certain people on Auburn boards! There are several on here that want to dominate EVERY thread with all things negative against Gus and Auburn. I'm not sure that they are really Auburn fans. If so, We have some miserable people in our fan base. I'm as frustrated as most on the last 2 years, but come on man! I truly believe that some would rather see Gus fail than to see Auburn succeed!

  14. They already had their twin GIRLS (and have a set of twin boys already). I think the Lashlee family represented AU SO well and wish him the best in the future. Thankful for their love of AU. I imagine this was very hard on both coaches, but necessary for RHETT'S career (& Gus). This could be an excellent thing for all involved parties.

  15. I see the phase route tree used all the time and I'm not sure everyone is correct when they use it. There are only X number of routes. Every teams route trees are the same. They might be numbered/called something different, but otherwise a fly is a go is a 9. The differences come with the different splits and combinations that they are run with. Everyone loves Baylor's passing attack, but they run the same route tree as Auburn.

  16. I would expect a offense very similar to this years with more attempts downfield and far fewer drops. I really hope to see 25-30 passes a game, but until I do...

  19. I believe this is not a bad thing, look at it like this. Briles goes to FAU, a place that can give him a broader experience under another offensive minded coach. Then next year, when Lashlee leaves for another job, Briles is a year away from all the Baylor mess and he comes to AU a year smarter and with a substantial pay raise. Not to mention we know more about whether he can succeed at AU. I think the move is a good one, for everybody involved.

  22. Well... that's Gus' problem. He has no faith in his team. He lacks the killer instinct that a coach HAS to have to be successful! he's... too conservative (predictable)... too passive... doesn't cuss... doesn't demand respect from everyone he's around... too stubborn... doesn't plan... can't adapt... can't judge talent... doesn't develop the talent that he has... runs off our best recruiter to hire Kodi Burns... he picks his nose... chews gum... doesn't go for it on 4th and less than 1 when we HAVE to sustain a drive... These are just some of the things that annoy me about Gustav...

  23. Well I'm gonna to go then! And I don't need any of this. I don't need this stuff, and I don't need *you*. I don't need anything. Just this ashtray... And this paddle game. - The ashtray and the paddle game and that's all I need... And this remote control. - The ashtray, the paddle game, and the remote control, and that's all I need... And these matches. - The ashtray, and these matches, and the remote control, and the paddle ball... And this lamp. - The ashtray, this paddle game, and the remote control, and the lamp, and that's all *I* need. And that's *all* I need too. I don't need one other thing, not one... I need this. - The paddle game and the chair, and the remote control, and the matches for sure. - And this. That's all I need.

  24. No it isn't. Not that Muschamp didn't get us moving in the right direction, but we just had 13 games worth of Steele and his staff putting the best Auburn defense on the field since 2008.

  25. Let's see... He's kept the team together in the face of massive adversity, most of which was out of his control. Something that his predecessor, as well as several other coaches throughout the country, could not do. Even with major injuries, and a circus of a game plan against Clemson, he's kept us competitive against everyone, this year, including the two teams that played for the championship. He's returned Auburn to Tommy Tubberville era quality defense... one that held Clemson, Arkansas, and Ole Miss to fewer points than bama's all-time great defense that they fielded this year. He's continued the top 10 level recruiting that started when he came on board as the Offensive Coordinator. He's continually put the integrity of the school and team above all else, keeping Auburn far away from the kind of scandals rocking schools like Baylor and NCAA scrutiny faced by the likes of Ole Miss. Oh yea... and when everything is clicking on his offense... it's nearly unstoppable. Ask Arkansas. On the flip side He lost some games because he failed to recruit enough real QBs to back-up his starter after injury... To me, my list wins, especially now that we have said back-up QBs in place.

  26. Where in the name of Bo Jackson do people come up with this stuff? I feel like I just had brain cells die from reading this. Sorry to be so blunt but damn! Kodi has 0% shot at being the next OC. If hell freezes over and it happens I will own up to being wrong...but it ain't happening.

  27. Yep, down grade but in order to prove himself he needs to put some distance between him and Gus to make any headway on his own.

  28. I think renfroe and leggett proved the value of shallow crossing routes making LBs play in space and make choices of what to do

  29. Two more LB's isn't "too many" anyway. We only signed one last year and now there's the situation of assigning some of them to the Buck position. Six in two years is barely keeping up.

  32. So we are only suppose to give it our all until the game is out of hand? It seems that some of you would have walked off of the field half way thru the 4th quarter! I wouldn't want you on my team! When BJ Bob called a timeout, then H E L L yes take the timeouts and try and score! Some of y'all are LOSERS and apparently have very little pride! Why wouldn't you give JJ and all of the other guys a chance to score in their last game?

  35. Interesting that Saban hasn't won a single Sugar Bowl, with 3 appearances, at bama... Of course, I always like to point out how he was mediocre at Michigan State, up and down at LSU, and then suddenly coaching gold at bama... so was it Saban that made bama what it currently is, or was it his fully adopting the bama machine that made it all happen? Since he couldn't do the same, even with 5 years at LSU an 11 years into his coaching career... I still vote the later.

  37. The chance to work with the author of one of the most prolific turn-arounds in college football history, the first OC to have a 5,000 yard passer, 1,000 yard rusher and 3 1,000 yard receivers in a single season, who ran the most prolific offenses in the nation in 3 of his 7 years as an OC, and won a national championship... yea, that might actually be pretty enticing.

  38. AU won't go Air Raid under Yurcich, but will utilize ALL the assets other than just the RBs. AU has immensely talented receivers, and it could be argued that the passing offense should be the strength of the offense.

  42. I've read several posters talk about his looks. I don't give a rats-a$$ what he looks like. I just want him to be able to recruit, coach and develop players, not to be a candidate for "The Dating Game."

  43. We need development guys to mix with our recruiting. Not that it matters much I really like this hire. Screw home run hires at this point. We need coaching.

  44. Fast thoughts: -SW is a good, hard-working kid with MAJOR durability issues. He's also a kid with (for this level) limited physical tools who, quite frankly, will never be genuinely successful in this offense as it is currently constructed. I think SW could be an excellent quarterback in a more pro-style or West Coast system but right now he's a square peg trying to fit into a round, hopelessly simplistic hole. -On that note, Gus needs a passing game coordinator. BADLY. There are 13-year olds playing Madden that call more balanced games than Gus right now. It's way easier to list the things Gus doesn't do AT ALL in the passing game than it is to list the things it does well. He doesn't use TEs or RBs to catch passes (barring the RB wheel route that gets trotted out once a game). He doesn't run slants. He doesn't attack the middle of the field. He apparently forgot that bubble screens aren't the only kind of screen. Multi-level route concepts? Using scheme to create physical mismatches in the passing game? Gus doesn't do any of that. It doesn't matter how talented Jarett Stidham might be, he WILL NOT be successful here if Gus' passing philosophy doesn't change.

  45. Folks, not gonna happen as long as Gus and the Lash are on the Plains. Gus considers himself and Lash as QB gurus. Gus is probably sitting with Lash in some candle lit room around a waterpipe at this moment with their turbans on chanting and hoping for some vision of what to do next, and anything or anyone outside of their little circle ain't going to happen. Imho.

  46. I don't think that expecting a championship every year is realistic, of course (unless you have blackmail material on the head of the ncaa, can completely ignore the rules and are willing to do so), but I see no reason that the Auburn Tigers should be expected to win fewer than 9 games per year with at least one of those victories being to either the leg-humpers or bammers in most years and, of course, both of them as much as possible. The "off year" of 7-8 wins while losing to both of them should be the "rebuilding year" exceptions to the rule...not The Rule as it's become.. If AU could maintain a reasonably high level as they should be expected, then a championship (conference or natty) would come every few years. That happens and I believe that all reasonable fans would be pretty dang happy.

  49. The infractions were a joke. And Baylor agreed to a $5000 fine. Not really a program killer. I mean really, he attended a track meet. He didn't even "bump" into recruits like others do consistently without reproach. You act like he was caught on camera with recruits snorting lines between stacks of cash and hookers cheeks. The NCAA fined Baylor $5,000 but will not issue additional penalties after Baylor reprimanded the coaches independently in 2015.

  50. Nothing was "wasted". If you want to say injuries to the QB and both starting RB's caused us to lose a few games we'd have otherwise won, OK. But nobody wasted anything.
