  2. Power 5 Conferences are incentivized to assist their contending teams. Not just for bragging rights. Conferences get 6 million per playoff team. And think of all the money that isn't directly made from a playoff berth - from merchandise sales, to national exposure, to using the CFP as a tool in TV contract negotiations ("We demand $40 million more than the ACC, since we have multiple teams that will be in the playoffs each year.") So what's the most direct way to make sure your team(s) get in? Think about the job of a referee. It's to be impartial and objective. Yet how can a ref impartia

  3. I never thought the death of someone I didn’t know personally could affect me so much until the death of Jim Fyffe, then Lutz happened and I thought nothing would ever hurt more than that...then Rod and Paula happened and it hurt so so bad I couldn’t imagine what the family and friends of the Brambletts were going through. God Bless Andy and his family and all those who have rallied around those kids in such a horrible time.

  4. Richmond Preview: On to the Spiders of Richmond and this one should be fun. We are looking at a Richmond team that likes to play fast and jack up threes. They have a dynamic combo guard and a 6'10" big who can have dominate stretches (sound familiar?). Make no mistake we are better and I expect us to win, but Richmond can flat out shoot. They are elite (top 10) in shooting efficiency and percentages in most categories, and are currently 5-0 with wins over Vanderbilt and Wisconsin. They pass the ball well, racking up 18 assists per game, again elite and top 10 and only turn it over

  5. NEW MEXICO REVIEW: So some quick thoughts on the game: Wiley had the best second half he has had all season. He fit more in the flow of the offense, ducked in for a nice post up in the paint, was moving and stepping towards the goal when he got the ball, just a really nice half. He put up a double double with all 14 points coming in the second half. Happy for him and hope to see more of that. He did this all in only 18 minutes, imagine what this Wiley could do if he stayed in the flow and out of foul trouble. Okoro is the best two-way player as a freshmen I h

  12. I do not know when I have EVER read something so nitty-gritty-real-powerful. I know we think of and pray for them...all...often...but this glimpse will help us really make a difference. It still takes my breath away, even passing by the intersection enroute to a field trip destination. I can't ever begin to imagine...they just take the next step forward. Thank you for sharing this. 🦋🙏❤ Want to add that Rod and Paula would be...are...SO pleased, relieved. My heart...💔🙌

  14. I think this is where those that really do a reality check fall in where Gus' record is concerned. It's not the Alabama game that defines Gus' ability to coach Auburn long term. We realize beating Alabama every 3-4 years is as good as any team would ask for ,based on Alabama's last 10 years. But where we have problems w/ Gus is what is record is leading UP to the Alabama game. The fact that we are NOT beating the LSU's and GAs as much as we should is what puts Gus' teams outside of the SECC and the playoff chances. And LSU and GA have NOT had great coaches prior to Orgeron and S

  15. You are correct it was delayed but it was delivered and there was no investigation started. Bottom line is Military aid was delivered. Right now the administration is holding up Military aid to Lebanon whether they should or not is debatable but just like with Ukraine it is not an impeachable offense. Basically what they have on Trump is conjecture. The conjecture is he would not release military aid until an investigation was started. The reality is Military aid was released and no investigation started. Basically you want to impeach him because you believe that was his intent you may

  16. Slight thread drift... FWIW PJ Fleck’s current buyout if he leaves on his own is $10 million, but on Dec 31, 2020 it drops to $4.5 million. There is a time for all seasons...truly.

  17. 1) They won't make it past the first round of the playoffs. 2) Keeping them out of the playoffs this year isn't worth keeping our own team out of the playoffs for years to come by keeping Gus around. 3) The players deserve a coach who doesn't let their hard work and sacrifice go to waste by underutilizing their talent. Their hard work and sacrifice next year will be for nothing again if Gus is still head coach. People need to start seeing the big picture of the program rather than this one single game.

  18. If things have evolved to the point where it's beat Bama or die, then that's 100% on the HC. Its an accumulation of years of mediocrity to below mediocre results vs our main rivals mixed with crap like losses to UT and way too many losses to the likes of MSU that have boiled over to the point where it feels like this game is critical. You can rest assured though, Gus isn't going anywhere this year. His team has been competitive vs the big teams and he's done it with a green QB while navigating a brutal schedule. I promise you he's been in Greene's ear all season, reminding him of those

  21. Lol you guys hearts are so good....you really gave the benefit of doubt. Dude is trolling, he has had it out for Greene since he was hired, you can search it easily and only one person comes up as far as complaining about him since he's relatively new at his job. For whatever reason he thinks it makes sense to pile on Greene and he thinks he has a conundrum, when there isn't one. So while you all tried to use reason and show the origin of the problem, which is the BOT you didn't realize you were talking to a person where logic and reason are moot. It's Greene or bust, now why does he dis

  22. It's a losing battle with some in this crowd who can't see the forest for the trees. I'll even do you one better....Cristobal knows how to build championship caliber teams. He's doing it at Oregon, right now. Winning along the LOS and surrounding yourself with the best coaching staff available. I've got all the confidence in the world that he'd hire a capable staff here, and not surround himself by yes men. Furthermore, he's not even married to any one scheme which is a plus, to me. We need someone that's willing to go toe2toe with our rivals, who happen to be at or near the CFB hil

  23. The NCAA needs to be in charge of the refs. Fly these guys all over the place. Do a game in Tempe one week, Bloomington the next, Miami the next. Even as bad as the NCAA is, if they employed the refs at least then there wouldn't be such a clear conflict of interest.

  24. Oh yeah I agree. I was shocked on that one. I just always look at how many folks would have to be involved and keep their mouths shut for a conspiracy like that to exist. Doesn’t mean it can’t happen but I tend to err on the non conspiracy side.

  30. Fundamentals. Don’t watch the ball, watch his feet and how he sets himself on a play. You can almost predict the outcome. Unfortunately, he’s completed some big passes with terrible fundamentals which only reinforces those bad habits.

  33. Refs should be rated after each game by both HC. If they don't reach a predetermined threshold, they are not suspended a game. If they miss it three times they are replaced for the rest of the season.

  36. Refs might make a late holding call on the Tide when we get a sack or tackle for loss. Even though we will decline penalty they think this sort balances out against the two or three critical holds that will go against us. Remember the call on Shivers' TD run last year.

  37. Ok, let's take LSU for example. They were in this (damn near) exact situation when they tried to fire Les then did the very next year. They abso-freaking-lutely wanted Jimbo then it was Herman. The deal with Jimbo was botched and Herman shunned them for Texas. They wanted the splash hire, but settled for Ed O. A cheaper option that was (trust me here) viewed as a stop gap hire. It's turned out so far to be a miraculous hire for them. Auburn people would like to think about Kevin the same way. I really like Steele. He's a helluva coach. On the other hand, some of Ed's most impor

  38. Like most AU fans, I couldn't wait for basketball season to get here and watch Coach Pearl develop his returning talent, along with his new talent....Man, he didn't disappoint......This is a damn good basketball team, better than I thought it would be....The PG position still scares me, not because of JM's play, but shooting FT's at the end of a game.....Now, after last night, they ALL scare me shooting them.....They did play a little ragged but,my goodness they played hard....Wiley?...wow....He looked nimble and quick around the basket and he owned the middle....He has to stay healthy and if

  46. I hope we have a real offensive game plan and take advantage of our strengths.. I doubt it will happen, therefore no way we can score enough to win. The defense will be great as usual. I expect CGM to be back next year regardless.

  47. 😁 Saw them call it twice on bama yesterday ….when tide was up by about 55 or something and it did not matter....but later when you look at the stats they have 45 yards in penalties, more than poor WCU....and it looks reasonable. It's when you call the penalty more than what the call is. Nothing can screw an opponent better than a few well timed flags.
