  1. This isn't football related per say but I wanted to post here because this is the forum checked the most... I am joyfully overwhelmed right now! I've been hired by the Security/Event company who handles the events for Auburn University & Athletics. It had broken my heart to not have worked most of this season representing AU athletics. I had been working events with the previous company from 2010 til before this past football season. A new company came in & wouldn't hire me due to a worthless check conviction from 2012. The time has passed where that egregous mistake is no longer

  2. Im here.... still just replaying the play in my mind🤦🏾‍♀️Thanks guys! I saw something fly & thought it was the ball... I was thinking he fumbled & that nobody was trying to recover the ball so I was mad & everybody else was happy. I looked at the jumbo tron & realized he scored... me & my momma cried like babies. Its like Ive been battling all year listening to people doubt him & say what he cant do... all the while trying to make people see that he is beast that was born to do this & I know what he could do...given the opportunity. He got his chance on that one a

  3. First a little reminder: This thing is so-named because of the fact that it's virtually impossible to see everything on a play or series of plays without watching over and over and over. Being unwilling to invest that much time, I just watch the game, make little mental notes, and then jot down what I THINK I saw. So, if you saw it differently, that's fine; you may well have seen it correctly and I did not. Auburn just beat Alabama for the second time in the past three games. Not many programs can say that. Yes, Alabama was without their outstanding quarterback. That's truly unfortunat

  4. So today was basically the best day of my life. I was able to go on a VIP tour of Mercedes Benz stadium, go to both team locker rooms, go to the media viewing windows for both Auburn and Georgia, and see all the behind the scenes production stuff! We also got to meet Marcus Spears, Steve Shaw, and the president of the Atlanta Falcons. All thanks to my awesome brother, Jake. Anyway, I thought I could come share what I saw. Kerryon came over and got Jake from the sideline to come out on the field with him. He took pictures and talked with Jake for a good 5 minutes. He was walking aroun

  5. Mods - move as desired. For all that have been following, I had my tests and doctor's appointment following round 6 of chemo and my CT scans and blood tests show my body is entirely cancer free! It could come back, but my doctor was amazed just how good everything looked. I still have to have surgery on my colon to deal with a growth that, at this point tests benign, so if I disappear again, for a while, it's because I'm recovering from that, but it's lathroscopic so it shouldn't be a huge deal. In any case, thank you for all of the prayers and good thoughts. Score one for the T

  6. This made me super excited to see! I’m still in disbelief..... especially since people focus on what they say he can’t do & he did it all in 1 play with 1 touch! No matter what people say negative about him, you will walk in that complex and see that smallest #8 destroying a Alabama top player, placed right next to Cam Newton accepting the Heisman Trophy....FOREVER! I’m a proud mom 😉 #ICouldntStopCrying #Traveled2AUJust2SeeIt #WarEagle #History

  7. Some here know...some don't, but my son has a very rare and severe bleeding disorder. He has been in and out of the hospital his entire life and many of y'all have walked through each stay with us. My wife and I typically can take care of his issues at home. Unfortunately, we have been chasing a severe knee bleed the last 10+ days and the pain and continued swelling has once again led us to another hospital stay. He is beginning to show some beginning signs of compartment syndrome in his lower leg and his pain meds have now become ineffective to handle the level of pain he is having. James is

  8. Auburn should not have lost to Georgia yesterday. The UGA offense is anemic and our defense totally controlled it aside from a few amazing passes from Eason. They held them to two FGs the entire game and anytime that happens, you should win. At the same time, Auburn is a very beat up team, far more beat up that the coaching staff has let on. Sean is obviously not himself and unable to generate any velocity on passes beyond 5-10 yards without really screwing up his mechanics and thus his accuracy. I think it's also causing him to throw the ball quicker to try and avoid hits because any

  9. Mods, move if you like, but since may on this board have been asking, I wanted to let you all know that I started round 2 of chemo today, but more importantly, had blood tests yesterday. This morning, my oncologist informed me that all of my liver function numbers were normal. He was shocked. His exact words were "If I didn't know any better, I'd think I was looking at a healthy person's results". Thank you to all who are praying and sending good thoughts. We've got a long way to go, but we're kicking this things butt Tigers are Stronger than Cancer! War Eagle!

  10. At the end of this season, Gus needs to be told he has several options: 1) Bring in a new offensive coordinator with experience not affiliated with your coaching tree. It can be spread oriented if you like to expand on what you have already installed in the past. It is time for you to be a head coach and not an offensive coach. 2) If not, your employment will be terminated with five losses or more and fired with four losses if two of the games are against Georgia and Alabama. Going 0-8 against our two biggest rivals is not acceptable. Having witnessed first hand what occurred u

  11. Sometimes these little things are fun to write; sometimes they're not. And every now and then, they are a LOT of fun to write. Auburn finally exorcising their uga demons has given me an incredibly pleasant weekend. Going into the game, I hoped the pressure of being ranked Number One would weigh on Georgia, and Auburn would come out pressure-free and have a good time playing football. That appeared to be the case. I held some hope for the win based on the fact that Georgia hadn't really played anybody, and it was a certainty that the AU defense was the best they had seen. But I also thoug

  12. My son is a severe hemophilia B patient with inhibitors and we are on day 8 of a hospital stay with a severe ankle bleed. Although the bleed seems to have finally stopped, his pain has been a steady 7 or 8 throughout our stay. We are looking at another week at least and he is starting to wear down. Please pray for strength and healing for James. Thank you

  13. To be honest.... the coaches are the same all the time. All of the coaches are direct in the form of being truthful. It has been a family environment since day one. Its always a warm feeling when dealing with the coaches. Our funny story was my 1st time at Auburn. It was before the Clemson game. Coach G always greets his top recruits one by one. So they come tell us that Coach G wants to see Worm. We are standing waiting &. I notice that the guys taking us to Coach G are talking to Worm but are looking at me weird. So when its our turn to go in, the guy says, Im sorry ma’am whats yo

  15. What gets frustrating is that the initial information is exactly what happened, yet for some reason, many folks have to have exact details and rehash the info over and over. Truth; he pulled something during the play in question and it hurt a lot. We don’t know what exactly it was. It was not a shoulder dislocation or any broken bones. Therefore, it will be sore and take some time to heal but looks like he will be able to play. Thank goodness! Let’s move on. Would that be ok?

  17. Fire him tonight. Make Steele interim. Go get Cristobal or Bob Stoops for next year. Tired of seeing inept offense from a guy hired to field dynamic offenses. Whether it's a failure of recruiting, evaluation, play calling, game planning or some of all of it, it's just not working and it's not going to get better. EDITED TO ADD: Two points of clarification since people don't read context... 1. I'm not done with Auburn, I'm done with Gus. 2. This was posted when we were down 21-0 and looking left for dead. I fully realize that won't happen after we made it a game.

  18. Just wanted to stop by and wish you all a belated congrats on a good season and especially in beating that team in the Iron Bowl. There was a time when I was really into message boards. Even ran a LSU one of my own where lots of our users and some from here cross-posted. Had a passing thought today about this message forum and just logged in for the first time in five years. PS: Thanks for giving us heart burn in our annual game. Rarely does it disappoint in competitiveness!

  19. Not so far from Auburn, 40 miles, plus or minus. First stop is at the grocery store. Numbers of people in AU gear, some locals and others from out of town stocking up for their tailgating on the morrow. Lots of high fives and a War Eagle here and there. One checkout clerk has a bammer shirt on. There are some bammers around, but not many. Next at the feed and seed store, the young guy loading my truck is in a great mood. He's taking his new girlfriend to her first Auburn game tomorrow. I tell him he should remind her to wear comfortable walking shoes. Then on to the drug store to pic

  20. Things I Think I Saw….. About three years ago, I started doing this little “column” after each Auburn football game. The idea was to just write down “observations” based on seeing a game once, whether live or on tape/DVR. I’ve always been a little surprised at how we can see something different each time we watch something over and over. I’ve watched a fair amount of football film/tape/DVR recordings over the years, and sometimes it’s hard to believe how I “thought” I saw something happen, but after looking at it again, I changed my mind. It isn’t practical for me to do that anymore, so I jus

  22. It's time for a divorce. Not talking about Malzhan. Can we have two websites? Some of you people are great. The rest of you can take a long walk off a short pier. You're the biggest group of whining, crying jackwagons on the planet and you don't deserve to call yourself Auburn fans. We won 10 games and beat UGA and Bama when they were ranked number 1. If that's not good enough for you, nothing ever will be.

  23. What we just witnessed. At least from the posts I have seen. That was one of the gutsiest wins in Auburn history. A true freshman just brought us from 15 down on national TV in Jerryworld against the #11 team in the country. You don't just DO that. You don't just take the team down the field for the game winning strike after having a ROUGH debut. The kid brought us back from the dead. We witnessed the birth of the next Auburn great tonight in Dallas.

  25. Alright so here it goes. There is always confusion and complaining about DBs and why they are not looking back for the ball. Hopefully this will help clear some of it up. The answer is different for each player, but concept remains the same. Basically, the rule is, when a DB is in phase and in a position of control they can turn and find the ball. Well, what does that mean? In phase vs out of phase. In phase means the DB is running hip to hip with the receiver. Out of phase means the DB is trailing and trying to catch up to the WR. Position of control Typically, t

  26. A Facebook snag...LOVE this! "I'd like to give a shout out to a very kind young man. Marquel Harrell is an Auburn Football offensive lineman. It was Auburn’s Director Of Player Development Jorrell Bostrom who, upon visiting a local Auburn retail store, saw Marquel volunteering for the Salvation Army. As an offensive lineman, Marquel doesn’t get much attention- and he doesn’t mind! Why the volunteering? Because it was the right thing to do. Who is Marquel Harrell? He’s a tough football player, but he’s also a young man who has already earned his degree, is fluent in French, and as a hig

  27. In the spirit of being positive this week...and as an olive branch to those radical pumpers I’ve offended...I want to show that I can see positives in Gus too. I’m not being a smart ass here. This is a real attempt at being positive. I encourage everyone to follow with positives... 1. Gus is a great ambassador for Auburn- class act, honest, nice guy, seems to genuinely care about his players. 2. Has stabilized the program- no losing seasons, no wheels come off seasons like his predecessors. Six straight bowl appearances. 3. Less off field issues- seems to run a fairly disciplin

  30. Spare me the "don't blame refs" or "we had our opportunities." I'm not in the mood. LSU got bailed out multiple times to extend their drives late and we had two of our drives killed because the refs apparently only notice pass interference when Auburn does it. But Greedy Williams can grab and redirect a player off his route and flat run a WR over and no flag. Complete horse***t.

  31. I mean...I’m the average fan. I’m just beyond emotions or words at how bad our offense is. I put 75% on head coach issues/scheme, 15% on QB play, and 10% on OLine play. I DESPISE being mediocre, and quite frankly, I’d rather be bad and be getting somewhere than consistently average and never beating our biggest rivals unless there’s an alignment of the stars. I really hope that some AU fans don’t take the narrative that “our boys didn’t quit.” Of course they didn’t! They are amazing men that play this sport for fun/career, and we love them for it. I also hope that this does

  32. The moment everyone has been waiting on. My complaints of a Gus run Auburn Football team in the current state of 2018. Please excuse the ramblings if they appear in this post. Gus as a head coach - I think he’s a tremendous ambassador for AU. A good man and a good coach. I think he’s a little to introverted to ever be accepted as a true Auburn Man. I think he’s to reactionary to critics as he seems to want to make people happy. Offensive scheme - I love our base offense and scheme. The complaint about route trees I understand but when the play action is working the deep pa

  33. Things I Think I Saw: AU vs Washington…. In case you haven’t seen this before, I named it as I did because I’ve watched thousands of hours of film, tape, and video of football games, and always been surprised at how differently I saw things each time I watched. Rather than watch replays of our games endless times, I just go with my first impression in these columns. So I may be wrong, and you may see things entirely differently. These are just my takes on assorted things from the game. Jarrett Stidham seems much more confident than at any point last season. He wasn’t perfect by a

He spoke about the importance of education, working hard on the field & defying the odds. The kids & coaches were excited to see him & it was a wonderful experience to be able to give back mentally. Here are a few shots from the visits.

  36. The first 2 years of Gus' tenure was an anomaly. Instant success with another staff's players. The last 3 he has gone 6-6, 8-4, 10-3. He has built a strong foundation for the program. He has instilled discipline and accountability. The recruiting is only getting better. We are not to the level where we are reloading yet, but we are getting close. The stability and continuity of coaches has been huge the past two years and will pay higher dividends as it continues. It was time to marry or divorce Gus and AU decided to marry him. As fans, it's time to embrace him and support him and know he w

Of the 30 games where Auburn led by more than 30 points at halftime, only seven of those games were conference opponents. Since 1981, it has occurred just 2.5 percent of the time in conference play. Auburn led Ole Miss 35-3 at halftime, the identical halftime score of the Alabama-Ole Miss game, which included a defensive score for the Crimson Tide. By halftime, Auburn had outgained the Rebels b

This is the very reason why Auburn coaches now should not be compared to Auburn coaches prior to 1992 when it comes to winning conference titles. What if the 1987 team had to play Tennessee a second time to win the conference? What if the 1983 team had to play Florida again at a neutral site to win the SEC? What if the 1989 team had to play Tennessee again to win the conference? I enjoyed every conference championship Auburn
