  1. Ok here ya go: As far as what happened in game, no idea. Something started hurting all of a sudden. Around the upper ribs and shoulder area. He played two or three series after the lick on the goal line. I think everyone thought it was a shoulder dislocation on the play in question. Something hurt suddenly and sharply. on the good side, i THINK that he will be medically cleared and will take things easy in practice this week. I expect him to play Saturday. I cannot at this point guarantee that and i would be careful not to listen to any unsubstantiated reports. Also remember that pri

'Twas the days after Iron Bowl And all through the South 'Bama fans were silent Not running their mouth The TP was hung from the Live Oaks with care Everyone knew, the Tigers were there The tide headed home, scratching their heads As 'bama fans weeped, crying in bed But on 85 North, there rose a great clatter The Tigers were coming to settle a matter Georgia rejoiced, they won the East But everyone knows, the West is the beast Next stop for the Tigers is ole ATL For UGA fans, all is not well Last time they met, them dawgs didn't hunt They were ranked #1,

  3. When you make a statement like this publicly, then the person you called out turns it around and fixes the problem, then mea culpas should be just as public. I was angry and I didn't see any way he was going to fix it. I was wrong. He learned from what lost us that game and we're sitting at 10-2, dominating wins over both our biggest rivals and a berth in the SECCG with a chance at the CFP. I can't ask much more than that (other than not blowing the rematch). I'm back on the bus, Gus. My apologies.

  4. ^^^^^^ THIS was BLATANT and i posted in the game thread, the only way they could contain Holland without double teaming him the WHOLE game!! and NEVER called... Holland had a HUGE Impact on them even though the stats don't show it, HE controlled THEM even with the TE getting away with holding. Great pic by our new Photographer here...

  6. Thanks Coach. Two quick thoughts. First, stats or no stats, Carlton Davis was a monster on Saturday. He moved with Ridley into the slot or either side of the field for big chunks of that game. Ridley was a complete non-factor until the catch over the middle against a zone look. Monster performance. Second, the best complement I can give Moultry is, he doesn’t stand out, good or bad. On the best DL at Auburn in a long time, the true freshman just looks like one of the guys. He’s already very good. He’s going to be another of Garner’s monsters in the very near future.

  9. We are obviously fortunate that Gus is still here but anyone who was massively pissed off after all the bad losses the last few years- with LSU being the worst of them all- was completely justified in being so. People in his position deserve to be criticized harshly for failing miserably at their jobs, which he has done several times in the last couple years. We are all moving forward together but I'm not really going to get wrapped up in big apologies. Also, our players and assistant coaches deserve just as much credit for staying on mission as Gus does for getting his head out of his butt.

  10. Who was correct in their assessment? It certainly wasn't the knee-jerk "the sky is falling" crowd. If we lose Saturday, you'll be right back off the bus. I'll still be on it.

  11. BS! T Brown searches the fan out and cheap shots him from behind. That is all on a player who can't handle the emotions of defeat. You see other bama players shaking hands and congratulating players as well as fans.

  14. Good morning all, I hope this continues to find you in good spirits after our big game. As always, I wanted to try and share a few things that happened from inside the stadium that the cameras might not have caught. Some of this may be repetitive as well. But like with the Georgia game, can we really ever say 26-14 too much? Well here we go! Auburn trolled Alabama: Just like how Nick Fairley was in attendance for the Georgia game, guess who showed up? Mr. Kick Six himself, Chris Davis, Jr. Who also showed up? Tre Mason. Alabama players: There were several instance

  15. As I posted; No one has ever improved his lot in life without some constructive criticism, the key it to know what is constructive and to listen to it. The wife is the one to do that and we usually listen. On another note: I always get the last word in an argument with my wife. It’s “yes dear”

  16. Oh I get it now. If you'e a sunshine pumper it's called "analyzing", but if you're an objective fan it's not. Got ya. The rest of us are just crazy and love bashing people. If you were truly analyzing, you could see plain as day the difference in play calling and strategy between Chip and Gus. What you're seeing now is all Chip or at best a collaborative effort which is what we all wanted. The results are obvious based on previous tendencies. I have an idea though. How about we all celebrate the fact that our team has finally come full circle and operating as it should be. I won't and refuse

  18. Huh? We lost two games. Whether or not we could have beaten Clemson with better coaching is up for debate, I guess, but whether or not we should have gained far more than 116 yards of total offense is not. And there is absolutely no question that we lost to LSU because Gus did a terrible job that day. And he did a terrible job more than once in preceding seasons, and his recent successes don't change that.

  19. This team has won nothing yet. We don’t celebrate Division champions, we celebrate conference champs and beyond. Next week can put them squarely in the “very good” teams category if they win. If they lose they are just a regular good team that beat their rivals.

  20. We motioned a lot. Beyond that bama sets the edge on defense very good. The speed/jet sweep just doesn’t work very well against them because they play leverage so well.

  24. I am not saying they should have hired Schiano.. I just saying this could get ugly for Schiano with absolutely NO evidence he knew anything or saw anything. How fair is that.. McQueary said HE HEARD that Schiano witnessed something. McQueary didn't see it, Schiano didn't tell him.. He HEARD it. Where did he hear it from.. Once again not trying to take up for the guy.. but come on.. how does anyone know if he did or did not see anything.. This guy could be absolutely roasted over open coals over something someone heard.. SMH

Mikey would stay on the bus until that sucker fell off a cliff while engulfed in flames, into a river sinking slowly to the bottom as alligators closed in wearing laser beams on their heads....but kudos to you sir as you mostly stayed calm and made reasonable arguments for keeping him. I’m ecstatic it worked out like it did. I only and always want what’s best for Auburn and as I’ve stated elsewhere right now Gus is what’s best for Auburn.

  33. Read an article in that he commented on over on AL.com. Was talking about AU success in the passing game. Was talking about RD . Said there plan was to cut block him but never could get to him. Said he kept out maneuvering their DB. Says a lot about RD and why he is such a good reciever. The guy never seems to miss a pass either. And when he gets the catch he is money. WDE RD

  35. Here's what I posted on October 23: I'm happy to see that Gus has figured things out; I did not want to have to go through a coaching search this cycle. Hopefully, this is a sign of things to come for future seasons and we won't see Gus 'coaching scared' ever again.

  37. I'm not saying we'll win easily but, you don't correct a physical whipping like they received in-season. Their emotion will carry them for the 1Q but after that, it's skill, toughness and physicality. I like our chances in that case.

  38. My new theory; Kerryon reached his predetermined pitch count. Gus told him game was secure go out and flop so we have uga preparing for a ghost game plan. He’s 100%. Will get hiesman votes for toughness.

  39. A few things: 1. We're doing a fantastic job of containing scrambling QB's. The last 4 or 5 defenses were notorious for being over aggressive and giving up huge running lanes to mobile QBs. Saturday's pass rush was beautiful to watch our linemen work in tandem to contain Hurts and force out-of bounds throws. 2. We have sucked at throwing any type of screen for what seems like 2 decades... Ryan is a great athlete, Jarrett is a great QB, but most importantly, it appears we spend a ton of practice time working on those...the timing and ball placement is huge. Glad to see it become a

  40. This makes me crazy about our fan base. If there is a good play call - Gus turned it over to the OC (even the last 4 years when we had a sub-par OC - we gave him credit for good games but blamed Gus when things went bad). we hear it so much from people that have no source of truth / evidence - that I think people just accept this garbage as fact. The reality is that OC's make bad play calls. The reality is that Gus has the ability to make good play calls - that is how he got this job. Do i think that Gus sets expectations during the week for what the O should look like and plays that h

  41. I disagree with most of this. His last two seasons had more to do with injuries and personnel. The clempson game was a strategy that was to give yourself a chance to win an ugly game vs try to run an offense you are not ready to execute and let it get out of hand. Lsu there is no excuse. I was not going to defend him because I was in the maybe 10% who didn’t want him fired. However you slice it, the offensive numbers since he has been our oc and or hc have been better than any other time in our history. 2 sec West titles in 5 years is pretty damn good for anyone. My main argument in favor of G

  42. I don't think any of us should apologize. It took almost losing his job and all this negative criticism coming from the fan base, the boosters, the tv analysts and anybody else who said if he don't learn his lesson now (after the LSU debacle), he is going to lose his job for sure. It took all of that for him to realize he needed to make some changes himself with the decisions he made, actually turning the offensive play calling completely over to CL, and just basically staying out of his own way to save his job at AU. Without that, he would be on the chopping block today. Hats off to Gus for f
