  1. I don't seem to remember the anti Gus (reality crowd) starting this post. Actually it was a poster making an argument why we should all be ecstatic about a 14 ranking. Then, he, and a few others started whining when everyone didn't see it that way. Whining goes both ways, and the Gus apologists are champions at it.

  2. I'm tired of coming on hear and reading about reality! Why can't everybody agree with me and fairytale this up? Stop criticizing Gus. It hurts my feelings and I didn't come here to get my feelings hurt. I mean why would I come to a football board of a team who was physically whipped by a bunch of 3 star prospects and expect to see blue skies and rainbows? I don't know but I want it to be different NOW!

  3. This one should be fun, let's jump right in. This is not the bama team of Grant or Avery, this one likes to get up and down and get into shoot-outs. They also, don't like to play much defense and this looks to be . a pretty high scoring matchup. Bama leads the SEC in team scoring at 83 per game, and we are right behind them at 81 per game. Offensively, these teams are very evenly matched with bama getting more outside scoring and AU doing more damage from 2. However, we have an advantage in the turnover area that could prove to be the difference. We average 12.9 turnovers per game, and bama av

  5. You know, I was in a pretty good mood until I saw this topic. Now I’m forced to relive how awful Auburn football is and deal with the fact that for what seems like the fourth year in a row, if we had just had a pulse on offense, things could have been so much different. Instead I’m told I should be grateful that we’re ranked 14th and came so close to beating these four teams, as if the games were ever actually that close (Do some of you even watch the games, or just check the score at the end?). We held LSU to what, 24 points? No one else came close to that, and because we couldn’t even fart o

  8. I'd say it was easily about 80-90% of the problem. RBs couldn't find a hole and Bo rarely had the time to scan or the pocket to step up in. I've been hypercritical of Gus' predictability, his game plans, and the timing of certain play calls. However, this year there was a lot less of those criticisms. I actually agree with him this year that most of the issues were due to player execution and to me, that was mostly due to the very poor OL play and inconsistencies

  10. Man oh man if our offense had just scored some points. Pretty sure that missed holding calls on LSU's offensive line didn't prevent that. Auburn fans are heavy with the moral victories today because of how our defense played against LSU. I'm just that much more frustrated that our self-appointed play caller turned a playoff-caliber team into a 4-loss team. Again. If this was intended to be a Kevin Steele & Co. appreciation thread and I missed it, my apologies.

  11. Tim Hudson joining Auburn baseball staff ByJASON CALDWELL 9 minutes ago Share8 Comments AUBURN, Alabama—A former Auburn All-American and a winner of 223 games in 17 seasons in the major leagues, Tim Hudson will be joining the Auburn baseball staff as a pitching coach for Butch Thompson. With veteran Steve Smith leaving to take the head coaching position at Tennessee Tech, a spot opened up for the Tigers as the full-time pitching coach and the call was an easy one for Thompson to turn to Hudson. "I came here as the head coach," Thompson said. "I don't want to be the pitchi

  12. Lol every single SEC rival of ours want us to keep Gus forever because of seasons like this one and some of our fans want us to be satisfied with it. If our rivals are happy with our how our seasons end up why the hell are any of our fans happy about it? Some of yall need to re-assess how you're viewing our program if it aligns with how our rivals feel about us.

  13. I don't disagree with what you are saying, however, a good offensive line can make up for a lot of offensive mediocrity though. Good example: Even though they had some good to very good players, Minnesota did not have 1st round talent in their wide outs, QB and/or RB positions but because our defense never got to the QB he was able to pick us apart, the receivers were consistently able to get open and make catches and the RBs were able to run all over us and have a record day. A major reason for this was that their O-line beat our D-line for most of the game. They kept the QB upright (0 sacks

  14. After 7 yrs of the same old crap, I can no longer find the will or energy to blame refs for the mounted losses this staff sustains every single year. Every season is bizarre in some form or fashion and excuses flow like water from fans in an effort to cope with the consistent deficiencies of the HC. I don't thing I've ever seen a fan base consistently throw out a myriad of excuses in order to try to explain why a top 5 paid staff can't for the life of them string together back to back 9 win seasons. It's unfathomable in today's world of 12 game regular seasons that this crew can not a

  16. Henson is by far a superior recruiter. However, I believe Bicknell is a superior developer. I can't really talk with regards to Bicknell's recruiting prowess. I believe, with the players we have on the team now and the JUCOS coming in, the need for a dynamic developer outweighs the need for a dynamic recruiter.

  17. AUBURN, Alabama--Auburn announced on Tuesday evening it has hired Brent Crouch of Southern Cal to take over as head coach of the Auburn women’s volleyball team. That position has been vacant since Rick Nold stepped down on Dec. 2nd following a disappointing 2019 season in which the Tigers won just one SEC match. Nold posted a 127-139 record in nine seasons at Auburn. Crouch has been head coach at Southern Cal for two seasons where he led teams to the NCAA Women’s Volleyball Tournament the past two seasons. “Volleyball in the SEC is on the

  23. Keeding aside. I will say for all the gnashing of OL teeth many of our fellow posters did on this opening and what they were expecting Good Ol' Gus to do...I think this is as good as a hire as many of the others that have been successful for Gus. He has NFL experience. Check. He has coached in the college ranks and even in the SEC. Check. He has a pedigree in his family tree. Check. He has proven track record of very good OLs in the pros and college. Check. He's not a Gus groupie or in the Gus' offensive tree of coaches. Big CHECK!

  27. Six teams on our schedule FINISHED in the top 10. We started and ended the regular season by beating a team that finished in the top 10. We lost to the national champion final by 3, #4 & #10 by a TD and #6 by 11 (notwithstanding Derrick tripping on a blade of grass). I don't rant about refs but man oh man if they just called HALF the holding of Davidson & Brown by UF, UGa and/or (especially) LSU...

  34. It drives me crazy when people say that other fans want Gus to fail. That is inaccurate. In their minds, he has already failed. What they want is the shortest route possible to the inevitable change that would give us hope of success where we now only have expectations of continued mediocrity. It's super simple and I'm sure they'd understand it if they actually wanted to.

  35. It's not like most of us haven't tried to be supportive of Gus either. Every season we start off with a clean slate with some variable to give us hope. It could be a new OC, a new QB, a returning QB, a returning OC, Gus taking the reins back, etc. Then reality sets in before September is over that it's the same ole same ole same ole and it's just hard to keep the faith. How some do not see what the problem is is beyond me. Gus is the one constant in all of these seasons. We constantly hear execution as the excuse. Please tell me how LSU, Clemson and other contenders are identifying the recruit

  41. I'm sorry, but in modern college football, the freshman/young QB thing at a major school is a crutch that doesn't work anymore. Some examples: - Jake Fromm won the SEC and went to the natty as a freshman. - Tua led a massive comeback in the natty and won the game for Bama as a freshman. - Trevor Lawrence won it all as a freshman. - Justin Fields had limited playing time at UGA. Took Ohio State to the playoffs as a sophomore. - Jalen Hurts was a true freshman when he started at Bama in 2016 and took them to the title game. In today's game, you can either p
