  1. Breaking News: Wade Christopher hired as new OL coach. Bio: Christopher built the hospital he was born in, located in Jupiter, Florida. Known for his incredible time management, he doesn’t wear a watch, instead choosing what time it is. Christopher has never flushed a toilet, instead he scares the crap out of it. When crossing the street, cars look both ways. Christopher has received legendary status as an Auburn player, holding every major record, and now he joins the coaching ranks. Christopher has commented saying, “I plan on taking our rag-tag group of OLinemen and building them

  2. None of these hires, including and especially Muschamp, were orchestrated by Gus. Consider the case of Garner: Malzahn had been hired with just one year of HC experience at Arkansas State. His network of coaching contacts was nonexistent because he didn't even come up like a normal coach does. You think that an introvert like Malzahn convinced Garner to up and leave Georgia, or do you think that the PTB at Auburn made the phone call and convinced Garner to "come home"? It should be obvious what actually happened. Demeyune Craig is another example of a hire that was HANDED to Malzahn - its

  4. One of the best I've ever met or had the pleasure to be around many times and proud to call him a frat brother. I have mention this before but Shug had a photographic memory if he met you one time he never forgot your name or hometown

  5. Always blows my mind that Shug coached 10 b-ball seasons here and several more at UGA. Oh and let’s not forget the WWII service and Purple Heart in between. As impressive a man as I think you’d ever find anywhere I’d imagine. I would have liked to have met him.

  6. He was the easiest person to meet and communicate with that I've ever encountered. I was doing some research on a cotton field across from Shug's house and he'd walk his little dog there, sometimes at the same time I was checking cotton. He'd ask where you were from, in my case he asked how a boy from Miami ended up at Auburn and other personal things. The second time he was out there when I checked the field, he congratulated me on my old high school winning a big football game a few days before. As @augolf1716 said above, Coach was amazing.

  8. I did not link this entire article, but found this interesting. Proves a lot of Alabama fans just hopping on for the ride. Part of this article indicated Auburn fans hate Alabama slightly more than Alabama fans hate Auburn. I think it’s more than slightly 😊. IGTBAAT!

  10. You have some logical points about "Iron Bowl", but forget it. The phrase is too catchy and too well established to go away. Besides, Shug is the one that came up with the term and it needs keeping for no reason other than that.

  11. The athletic department is a self funding organization with requirements outside the scope of normal educational requirements. I don't think you will find any athletic upgrade plans covered by Auburn University's facility management. Last year when AU decided they had a need for a football only facility they had to put together a new committee to manage the project. Auburn is behind most upper tier football programs in what it can offer in quality of life to student athletes. Can't claim to be doing an excellent job in managing funds and facility planning when every program you want to co

  12. Eaves was quite a coach.....developed what was knows as the "Auburn shuffle" and during the years I was in school, he rarely had a player taller than 6'7" who played a meaningful role. Mostly the weave and cut/drive offense with lots of layups and a team that generally shot about 50% from the field. He left us to become the AD at Georgia. And yep...will be tough for any coach to match his record.. Cliff could have caught him on the number of wins if he could have avoided NCAA problems...and at the rate he is going BP might catch him if he stays around here a while. ...and advantage

  14. Figured since I put in the effort in the game thread, I could make it into it's on topic. I love stats/numbers so it was interesting to look at. So, I took the time to crunch the numbers and it's amazing just how different they are. At the 15 Minute mark: Georgia Southern: 8 Points out of 83. 75 points the other 35 minutes. Davidson: 12 points out of 76. 64 points the other 35 minutes. South Alabama: 5 points out of 70. 65 points the other 35 minutes. CSUN: 22 points out of 116. 94 points the other 35 minutes.

  19. Not sure how that works...Burrow could have "showed" OSU by staying there and Fields could have "showed UGA" by staying there and the list goes on. JMO but it's a matter of timing and Joey was at AU at the wrong time. I expect he showed Gus and Dilly all he had while he was at AU...and what ever turns out at UK probably does not mean anything if he had stayed at AU as the back-up. I'm happy if he does well but not envious of UK.

  20. Okay, finally some details into what the beef is with some of you. Some of it's superficial, and possibly could be considered skirting impermissible benefits, since all it takes is one normal student complaining he can't get a haircut (free?) from the team barber. But now I see why some of you think the university is not up to the levels of other teams.

  22. You really think Gus can attract talent like that? Honestly? My honest thought: he and Chad Morris are trying to agree and hire someone. Between a recently fired HC and Gus' own reputation, he is struggling to hire a good OL coach. That's my take. Kodi already is occupying the "Co-OC" position. Hard to get a lateral move here.

  23. I watched a pre-game presser with both coaches and Fleck was praising Gus up one side and down the other. Saying that he didn’t know what to expect from Gus’ offense when he has this much time to prepare. Gus’ expression was that of agreement and was soaking up all the praise. Fleck played him and Gus fell for it. The game was over at that point. I want Fleck as our coach. ETA: I totally agree about the difficulty Gus will have recruiting quality QB’s with the new coaches in the SEC. We just went down 2 spots on QB’s priority list.

  25. They targeted three bases with the least number of troops and hit non personnel targets. To me, it looks like they retaliated to save face without trying to escalate matters.

  28. Wade is a complete tool. If ever there was evidence that the NCAA is completely feckless (or Wade has a pic of Emmert with a goat) the fact that Wade is still coaching at LSU is Exhibit A.

  30. Watched it. I can’t believe Will Wade is still coaching after getting caught talking about paying players on the ******* phone. Yet we’re still over here waiting in the wings about players we sat for being entertained about being paid to leave the university. **** Will Wade and **** MSU for s***ting the bed. Also, Will Wade might be the most basic boring ass looking corn fed white boy coach I’ve ever seen. I can’t believe players actually get up for that boner.

  31. Well I remember the one billion dollar drive about 5 years ago that was too help replace and add educational buildings on campus and if you've been to campus lately one can see the progress. I assume athletic facilities will be in the upgrade loop soon. Is that the type of plan you're referring to because an alumni letter went out concerning the fund drive. Did you get the letter?

  35. It was a disingenuous way to get Kodi out of his contractual buyout at ASU. He had to leave for a "promtion", he'd owe ASU money if he left to be a position coach elsewhere. And for a guy with next to zero coaching experience? The whole thing has stunk from the beginning.

  38. Attended the game with Arkansas yesterday. If the Coaches knew they were a team that shot 3s perhaps we shouldn't play a zone defense that doesn't provide good coverage on the corners. Ladies worked hard to get back and forth - I'd like to see our Coaches try to make it work. There are multiple ways to defend the 3 - Flo has yet to figure that out. the full court defense is no longer a shock to our opponents and they are breaking it most every time down the floor. As in previous years, we seem to have no offensive identity. Ball handling and basic skills of those returning don't appear

  40. First, I didn't say I "blamed" Trump for shooting down an airliner. I am just pointing out the facts. There is an undeniable cause/effect linkage. But war decisions often result in unintended consequences. Accordingly, I do blame Trump for not making well-reasoned decisions. Such reasoned analysis is simply against his basic nature. So your emphasis on a straw man argument of assigning direct and deliberate blame to Trump for shooting down the airliner - is a weak, diversionary excuse to ignore the fact of the linkage. Finally, I certainly agree there are plenty of oth

  41. I don't disagree with your rational, but you could take it even further. If Solemani hadn't created and directed a shadow war against the US and Israel, then Trump wouldn't have targeted him. It could be chased down the rabbit hole even further if desired. It just depends where one wants to stop and who they prefer to blame.

  42. That's less than 4 per team. Less than 1 per signing class. And almost none of them are kids who were ever going to make a difference at their current program. That's why they're in the portal. Furthermore, it helps coaches who want to make room on their roster. What is the downside in your opinion?

  44. Ask yourself this basic question: Is Iran shooting off a missile at all if we don't kill their guy? Planes have been flying safely over Iranian air space for years. It's not wrong to believe (and rightly IMO) that this is a symptom of our attack on their leadership. Mayor Pete's "tit for tat" comment is pretty spot on. It may very well have been accidental, but Iran is not a country that shoots off missiles for the fun of it.

  45. I was there also and remember thinking that buffaloes were docile animals. I visited Wyoming last year and Yellow Stone in particular and found out not to mess with them. I also asked the locals why the name change to bison? The Jackson Hole residents said it was always bison. Then I asked; then why wasn’t Bill Cody known as Bison Bill? No response.
