  4. I dont think the Harsin hire was a bad hire at all. Some of the assistants on the other hand is a completely different discussion.

  6. What you should ask yourself is why anyone in that position would hate this country? Why would you so readily believe that Hillary or Obama, Biden etc hate this country in some way? You are free to love and worship whoever you want. My issue with Trump isn't that he "hates' America. My issue is that he loves himself too much and the power of the Presidency too much. There is no principle that he won't sacrifice in order promote himself. It is shameful that many in the Christian church are willing to overlook the moral failings of the man for the sake of perceived influence. Consider this. On one hand you have a man married to the same woman for over 20 years. He and his wife are active members of the Christian church. They have 2 daughters. He and his wife have volunteered their time for over 20 years in poor communities trying to help organize efforts to make their lives better. He isn't poor, but he also isn't extremely wealthy. Compare that to the man that was born extremely wealthy with every advantage that life can afford. He also has a beautiful family, but that family includes several ex wives due to the fact that he is an admitted adulterer. He mocks the poor and encourages violence. He has even mocked the idea of sin and forgiveness, the very cornerstones of faith. The church should stay out of politics, but if it insists on opining, it should at the very least abide by its own principles.

  10. We have 35 seniors on the roster. Three Juniors are "on the bubble" of possible declaring for the pros: Owen Pappoe - probably the most likely but as of now I'm leaning towards him staying. Nehemiah Pritchett - I don't think he will declare early. Bo Nix - believe it or not I think it was a real possibility before the injury. Now it feels like a guarantee he will return. QB - 1 (Grant Loy) 4* Holden Geriner RB - 1 + 1 walk on (Shaun Shivers and Jacob Jasinski*) 4* Damari Alston WR - 3 + 1 walk-on (Demetris Robertson, Shedrick Jackson, Caylin Newton, and Malcolm Russell*) 4* Omari Kelly and 3* Jay Fair, TE - 1 + 1 walk-on (John Samuel Shenker and Hayden Brice*) 3* Micah Riley-Ducker OL - 7 + 1 walk-on (Nick Brahms, Brenden Coffey, Tashawn Manning, Brodarius Hamm, Alec Jackson, Austin Troxell, David Shannon*, and Brandon Council) 3* Eston Harris Jr and 3* Drew Bobo DL - 2 (Tony Fair and Marquis Burks) 4* Caden Story Edge - 1 (TD Moultry) 3* Powell Gordon (might play LB) LB - 2 + 3 walk-ons (Zakoby McClain, Chandler Wooten, Barton Lester*, Russ Logan*, and Brooks Walton*) CB - 2 + 1 walk-on (Dreshun Miller, Trey Elston*, and Roger McCreary) S - 3 + 1 walk-on (Malcolm Askew, Bydarrius Knighten, Smoke Monday, Devin Guice*) 4* Tre Donaldson (might be basketball only), 3* Ja'Kobi Albert, and 3* Caleb Wooden (might play LB) K - 1 (Anders Carlson) #1 high school kicker Alex McPherson P - 1 (Aidan Marshall) Looking at this we still need 1 RB, at least 3 more OL, at least 1 more WR, 1 DL, 2 LB, 2 CB, 1 S, and some preferred walk-ons for depth. I'm going to look later and see what our senior count looks like for 2023 and what our position numbers might be. If I have 85 spots I'd probably spread it our something like this: QB: 4 RB: 5 WR: 13 OL: 17 TE: 5 DL: 8 LB/Edge: 11 DB: 15 K: 2 P: 1 LS: 1 Something like that ideally.

  12. Imo. Pretty much all year on defense we play conservative the first half. I think we do that because of our lack of depth and of course adjustments. We don't have great d line. We have a couple of guys that are ok if all they have to do is pass rush and then can pin their ears back but establishing themselves throughout the game and doing all you need.....no. I feel like this last game was the worst case scenario and match up for us. And the straw to break our backs was going away and not being able to run in the second half. Once that snowball started it was over. We don't have depth and we didn't sustain drives so we kept the defense out there without rest and without depth. If you rush 4 you don't have your best players out there, the 4th rusher isn't good at rushing and you're just using up the little depth you did have. The plan pretty much worked in the first half so you don't have any reason to be alarmed until the second half. The entire plan is you need a mistake sooner or later to put them in 3 rd and long. There's no completely shutting out an air raid really. We should figure they are at the least score 21-25 points as far as where we are at. They just got very hot and we couldn't generate pressure. I think if we blitz a bunch they just score even faster because Rogers has complete control of that offense.

  13. I'm not a fan of Harsin not playing freshmen. Very few of the last signing class have made it on the field. I think this is a deterrent for signing new players and hurts their development. Also doesn't keep guys engaged if they know they are not playing. I loved how Steele and Co rotated guys in and out of the lineup. Great for building depth and keeping guys engaged from week to week.

  18. Gus didn't leave us in good shape but it also isn't a dumpster fire. Not even close. You're very literally calling the likes of Tank, Zakoby, Pappoe, McCreary, Nix, Wooden, Monday "trash". It's okay to be glad Gus is gone and also hold the new coaches accountable for their failure Saturday.

  19. You say PATIENCE??? You're asking way too much of many Auburn fans. It' apparently makes them feel better to criticize Auburn coaches, even though the new coach inherited a dumpster fire. And as far as being Kentucky, had Gus stayed we would soon have been the Vandy of the SEC West. But I'm like you. Older and I hope a bit wiser. I've seen it all since Shug roamed the sidelines and we're not in as bad of shape as some would think. I see light at the end of the tunnel.

  21. If you really thought it was the team that couldn’t beat Bama this year probably would not have gotten push back if you said Auburn but instead you said Bo wasn’t. That pretty much singled him out.

  23. Right, I could tell there was going to be a problem from following all of your posts (all of you, not just @bigbird) over the previous few years. For me, though, seeing it in this chart/line by line version is much more tangible. It's how I handle information the best- I'm an Excel junkie 😂

  24. Didn't matter. He said it during the campaign, promised to be their protector, and they bought it. He sprinkled in just enough God and country verbiage and they chomped on the hook like it was their last meal.

  25. Just have to disagree here. I don't want to see a single senior O-lineman in an Auburn uniform again. Move on and develop the future.

  26. His air raid literally replaces handing the ball off and so many think blitz = pressure...... Also nobody is speaking on the times we blitzed and it automatic td's Everybody wants pressure but doesn't think about you need the personnel to deliver pressure. There's a reason why guys who's good at generating pressure get paid so much Also remember when Lawson played and he was hurt what happened to that defense and when he was back how they looked? Pass rush is the number 1 thing you can't live without

  27. I guess anything is a possibility. Let me say that I was fine with hiring of Harsin. I believed that an outsider was needed. The problem I see is that everyone is not a believer in the hire. For Auburn to get to level of consistency that Georgia and Alabama are at, it’s going to take everyone to be fired up about the coach.

  29. Last year AU played 10 "big games" in the regular season and finished 6-4. This year we have played 7 big games and are 3-4. With mostly these same players, AU beat MSU the two previous years and lost to them this year. How is this an improvement over Gus? I agree that a change was needed, but saying things are better right now than they were in the recent past is clearly not true.

  30. You said nothing of substance to offer "subject matter content" for. I don't allow people who offer simplistic responses to bog my life down by offering back informed, detailed arguments when they aren't warranted. Casting pearls before swine and all that.

  31. I don’t know who you’re reading but Bobo has gotten plenty of flack this year. 40 unanswered points. 40!! Against Mississippi State! Mason is the goat this week. Offense quit working in the second half but they scored 34 points. Plenty enough to win. Offense has sucked for 8 of the last 10 quarters but the 40 unanswered takes the cake. Absolute trash.

  35. In no way am I calling out the players. Gus left us with no depth to speak of. In the SEC you win up front, and this is where we are so lacking in quality players and depth. The overall state of the program, in comparison to our peers, particularly our two main foes (Ga & bama) is not good. Maybe dumpster fire is harsh. I'll just call it a waste basket fire.

  36. Interesting. My high school daughter told my 10 year old son to quit using the word Cap the other day because it was played out. I overhear things and often act accordingly, but now I'm not so sure, b/c if it's good enough for DD, it's good enough for me.

  37. I doubt if anything would happen until the season is over. I really like DD and his potential but, even if he denies it now, it would make sense for him to transfer. He would be a RS Freshman, could transfer anywhere in the country, find a better fit for his talent and possibly even start.

  41. Talley my vote as "No" for thinking Riley leaves OK. Zero reason to with OK coming to SEC and Riley basically doing whatever he wants there. He's won 2 Heismans, been in the playoff hunt 3 years, basically owns the rivalry with UT, has ties to the Midwest, and has been rumored as an NFL coach prospect.

  43. No this team wasn't beating bammer just like we couldn't beat uga. Bo isn't beating a team by himself. He didn't beat them them by himself. He had other guys and this year his other guys aren't as good as they were then. Maybe Bo will get there one day I don't know, but right now Bo is good when everything around him is good, but he's not put the team on his back good. We just lost miss st. All a team has to do is stop our run and we're done. We're basically the Cleveland Browns and Baker is a great example as how Bo operates as well

  44. I can’t quite question his leadership but there’s been some dumb decisions for sure. Then again he didn’t recruit any of these guys nor did he assemble this piss poor OL. He’s working with limited funds. I like Harsin just fine. It’s the first year with a subpar OL and WR corp. This loss, however, was inexcusable. If Mason doesn’t make adjustments he needs to be gone.

  45. Last response here. I would give up the early gimmick "success" you call it, for the steady decline that the program has taken since the TAM loss in Auburn (2013 I believe). The UGLY losses to the major programs on the road in the SEC, The UGLY cross sectional losses to National programs as Minnesota, Wisconsin etc. The PATHETIC Bowl appearances. I DONT CARE about a record against Saban. That's the narrow view in state Auburn supporters have.. Saban! Saban! CONSISTENCY is something Auburn has not seen in a long time. It's got to start somewhere. The program is gonna have to be built from the ground up! Harsin has the fortitude to do it, if folks will just BACK OFF and let him do it.
