  1. Hoos fan here. First thing I would like to say is we all have a great respect for the Auburn basketball program and your coach. We know this will be a tough game. Our team plays with no fear, but comes with respect at any team we play. The way your team played with such heart after losing such a great player was one of the greatest things I've seen all season. Our two teams are exactly that, teams. They play as one unit and do it in an efficient manner. Whomever wins this game will have earned there spot in the finals. I will try to address some of what has been mentioned here.

  4. Hello Family As you can see this is my first post. I am 52 years old and a lifelong fan. I was not fortunate enough to attend Auburn, but love it as much as anyone. I have lurked in the shadows on here since waayyy before the site became aufamily. But after seeing this from the scumbag that wants to stop these kids from winning I couldn't stand in the shadows any longer. I don't know how things work on here but I wish a mod could pin these screen shots so they can be as visible as possible. We as Auburn fans/family need to be proactive with this. They've proven what they are capable o

  7. The ZR can't be a primary offense anymore. It can be used periodically to keep defenses off balance, but it can't be the staple of the offense. It has been figured out.

  8. 1. Cam weighed around 250# and Gatewood is around 237#-so not that much difference 2. The poster was obviously comparing Swartz and Mccalleb ability to run jet sweeps, but you may be right that Stove will get that role 3. There were tons of posts about JJ being scared to take hits at that time and that’s what the poster was probably referring to 4. White didn’t have the size to take hits and that probably resulted in his injuries

  9. It would take any ball handling away from BB and put him in a better position to be a spot up shooter...which is his strength.

  10. This is exactly what Gus needs while he gets this team sorted out and evaluates his QBs. Honestly, Gus owe's Bruce a solid for taking the spotlight off of football.

  11. Thoughts from a Hoo. Interesting discussion I've been lurking on since I'm not all that familiar with Auburn's team. But here's my reaction to this discussion from a UVA perspective. 1. It is close to impossible to speed UVA up. We play race horse teams like Duke and UNC every year and the possession count is always low. The possessions in those three games this year were 63, 63 and 60. Pretty much the whole point of the UVA system is to make fast teams play slow. Unless you have a big lead and/or get tons of run out turnovers, the pace is going to be slow. I'm sure Coach Pear

  15. I think this is a great comparison. Might be faster but I wouldn't go as far as to say a better passer. Not yet. This QB race is far from over but is a two man race now.

  18. It’s obviously sac religious to compare him to Cam Newton, but the size and running ability is there with Gatewood for Gus to run more of the 2010 offense. Add Schwartz as the first guy we’ve had that truly can replace the McCalleb role and the ability to stretch defenses horizontally while eating them inside is absolutely there. Watch Gaetwood’s Hs highlights too. He was a good kick returner, wide receiver, and played running back too. I only say that to say that the kid is some QB like Jeremy Johnson that is scared to take a hit. He has no fear running between the tackles. Id lov

  22. Dude, I had no idea I wrote this until the next morning. Auburn had just stomped out UNC the night before and I was about 1L deep into some Crown Royal with family and friends celebrating. Apparently I dropped this gem at 1:08AM right before laying down for the night.

  23. Per the FBI, the ethnic make up of hate crime offenders in the referenced data is as follows... 25.7 percent were Hispanic; 25.0 percent were non-Hispanic white; 21.33 percent were black; 19.1 percent were unknown; 8.87 percent were mixed race.

  24. Agree about the ZR. We need a QB who can throw and get the ball to the receivers. We have so many weapons with the WRs. Now, if we would only utilize those weapons and get them the ball......

  25. Sure. His name is Housel's Hope and the folks at our JT Vaughan Large Animal Teaching Hospital have already reached out to him and established a good relationship. Allegedly, he's related to Secretariat on his mother's side - she being the bluest of Kentucky Blue-grass bluebloods. His father was part bronco and comes from a long-line of scouting and bison-hunting horses. He says he doesn't mind sharing the spotlight with an eagle, as he has always had an affinity for birds of prey. It seems as though he's destined to come here.

  28. 1. Gatewood is giving up 20 lbs to Cam, so I wouldn't say the size is there. 2. Schwartz as a running back? Huh? Try Shivers. Stove might be front of the line for that role, though. 3. Yes, Schwartz can stretch the field vertically, though, because he's a WR. Hopefully we have a QB who can take advantage. 4. I think it's a little disrespectful and off-target to say JJ was scared to take a hit. He was never supposed to be the running QB that many around here assumed he was. (Hmm, wonder why they assumed that.) He was more in the Jason Campbell mode and was probably drilled to not take hi

  31. On 247, Purifoy was a 4, Spencer was a 4, Harper was a 4, Okeke was a 4, and Wiley was a 4 (originally he was a 5, but when he reclassified to play during the spring semester of what would have been his senior year of high school, he dropped back a bit).

  33. I don’t know how to make the lineup. I’ll leave that to BP. I have enjoyed seeing Purifoy on the defensive glass. He’s not getting double digits but he’s blocking out better than our other bigs. I think his boxing has helped rebounds that went to our other players. I don’t understand why every time Wiley makes a play/ scores he immediately comes out. I just wish he had better hands.

  37. Is anyone surprised? Now, whenever the Democrats want to talk about Racism until the 2020 Election POOF! "Democrats are no better, look at Virginia..." They may be able to name a few Republicans that were made to resign, etc. The Democrats will be stammering out an answer 30 minutes later RacismX2, Sexual Harassment... What if Biden wins the nomination? Do they just go ahead and endorse "Boys will be boys" behavior?

  40. I don't understand how some of you think that UVA isn't as good as some of the teams we've played. They only lost 3 games for a reason. I expect this to be a dog fight and just hope that we can come out on top.

  42. Gatewood hasn’t always been a crowd favorite. During this past Christmas, several were telling me he wasn’t cut out to be a QB. People are warming up to him though.

  43. For the first 30 mins of game time, it was Blueblood Privilege out there. UK got away with so much crap they would whistle us for and all our bigs were in foul trouble. But somewhere around the 9 minute mark, they just let them play.
