  1. Here is what I believe and have believed: Auburn fans in real life are addicted to the role of the underdog. It just provides such an awesome storyline and Auburn fans love storylines. Its the lifeblood of the program. If Auburn were to actually be a competent school and began picking on team with a competent offense and crushing defense that didn't rely on things like "Prayers" and "Miracles" it would kill what they believed Auburn to be. The addiction to storylines is why we also see so much Copium in regards to the "Legend of Bo Nix" despite the fact that all of Twitter and the CFB wor

  3. This is the dumbest idea ever. When was the last time a major program just let a coach's contract expire? The reason why it never happens is because of the obvious: doing that would be a program killer. You can't endure that many consecutive years of open ineptitude. The fanbase won't endure it. The recruits won't endure it. Worse yet, you are signalling to the entire world that winning isn't a priority at Auburn anymore. Momentum and perception is what drives this sport; your idea is to openly throw all of that in the garbage...so that you can save a few dollars of what isn't even your o

  4. In 2008, Auburn and Tennessee both fired long time coaches. Since then, Tennessee has been a dumpster fire of losing and failed coaches. Since then, Auburn ha won a national title and played for a second, won two SEC titles and played for a third. Auburn players have also won a Heisman and Lombardi trophies and we have twice had the national coach of the year. The only losing season during this time was 2012, the only year Gus was not in Auburn. Like it or not, Gus is the difference between Auburn and Tennessee since 2008. Tennessee, Texas, and Michigan are all programs with more historic

  5. Imagine thinking a guy who suited up for 4 years, walked the halls in the facility, been in the meeting rooms, is currently in the NFL, won SEC and national titles as a starting linebacker/safety, earned freshman All-American accolades, and put it all on the line for a school you love for 4 years has no credibility lmao Who are you?

  7. Gus Malzahn is the worst road coach in the history of the Southeastern Conference. Before this is classified as hyperbole, let me show you some numbers. We've all heard the stat. Gus Malzahn is 0-12 in Tuscaloosa, Baton Rogue, and Athens combined. With the prominence of these 3 programs, this stat may not seem that abhorrent. But it is. It's historically so. SEC Teams at the Big 3 during the Malzahn Era Let's start with just the recent history to directly compare Malzahn's performance against other teams in the conference. I looked up the stats of each team's record in Sanford

  8. This is 1000% a desperation to try to make our dead recruiting class look a little bit better than it really is. I don't think Gus cares all too much what this kid's "baggage" is at this point - this is a free 5-star recruit that will boost our overall ranking, and it doesn't look like we have to do any work to out-recruit anyone for this kid. Tuberville was doing the same thing at the end of his tenure by loading up on highly rated players on signing day who everyone KNEW had 0% chance of qualifying. Our team recruiting class ended up jumping a few spots, but it was all for show because 3-4 o

  9. This fanbase has been lulled into a state of shock. Have you noticed that the same people who want to nitpick the resume of every potential name that comes up as a replacement are the same people who will come on here and downplay the fact that our own coach loses ~4 games a year, with almost every loss to a good team team (ie: our rivals) being a blowout? These guys expect a coach at Ole Miss to win a national title before they're deemed ready to step onto the sideline here - but then you'll press them about the fact that BAD teams are beating us or going down to the wire with us, and its alw

  10. Whomever it ends up being, I want them to either have a track record of producing great QBs or a track record of hiring great QB coaches that have produced great QBs. I'm tired of not having superior players at the most critical offensive position. Honestly, when was our last great QB? 10 years ago with Cam? I'd argue he succeeded on talent alone. '13 with Marshall? Again, great athlete that was as dynamic as a QB could be, but again, success based on talent and not development.

  11. It's not being aghast at the outcome. Most of knew we were losing that football game a long time ago. It's being aghast at the complete lack of effort from the coaching staff on Saturday. No imagination. Not even trying to attack Bama. Get into 2nd and long and run the ball up the middle? Sorry, that's piss poor. Losing Saturday was inevitable, just like 1998, 1999, and 2009. But you know the difference between those years and this one? We actually fought our asses off in those seasons and at least threw everything we had at Bama. If anyone feels like we did that on Saturday,

  14. Hope AU loses badly? You don't care anything about our players feelings, do you? Me, I hope we win the next 25+ games, two national championships and Gus gets another big raise, extension and huge buyout. Anybody that wouldn't like that to happen isn't much of an Auburn fan.

  17. And the point isn't to rag on Mikey because everyone makes bad predictions (even me), the point is that there is a pattern in this fanbase of expecting perfection when analyzing others, but excusing mediocrity out of our own coaches or players. You see this constantly. Mac Jones is nothing special and is only good because of X, Y, and Z...whereas Bo Nix is really really good. The fact that there are people that actually couldn't even appreciate what Mullen did at MSU is shocking. 8-9-10 win seasons with a pretty consistent ~7+ wins a year over a long sample size at a school that can't compete

  20. Whats covid got to do with it? They developed a 3 star qb, surrounded him with talent and run a modern offense. This not Bama best team under Saban. They recruit well. Alabama's current oline class is scary. They are actually getting better. We won't see a UGA team with 4 new starters on the oline, a new OC and a former walk on at QB again. We won't see Kiffen at Ole Miss with less talent. Arkansas is not getting worse. We were lucky to beat either. LSU won't have the massive turn over in players and coaches again. Texas A&M is obviously on the right path and recruiting well. B

  23. We needed more speed at Safety this season. Smoke hits like a ton of bricks but does not have the speed or instincts to be a good cover Safety. Smoke skills would be top notch against a running team but when a team has as many speedy receivers as bama he is over matched. I would have liked to see us trying Hill at Safety he has the required speed to be a cover Safety. Now he is gone. As for Schwartz we used a WR with world class speed and very good hands and who is not real big as a position receiver instead of taking advantage of his hands. The passes we threw to him were usually short a

  24. If you're an OC and you're not trying to emulate what Joe Brady or Andy Reid is doing right now I have no clue why not. Schwartz has Tyreek Hill type speed and good hands. Look how KC uses Hill and gets him open using his pure speed. Yeah his routes are crisp but most of the time he just gasses a corner.

As alumni, I will always say War Eagle and War Eagle forever but I am not about to pump sunshine about an absolute a$$ whipping where we were never even competitive.. the game plan was stupid.. and we looked like we didn’t care. Now having said that the game played out just about as I expected for one reason and one reason only.. our head coach.

  29. STFU you freaking goober. Got damn this is maybe the most embarrassing post I have ever seen in here. You just outed yourself saying you don't care if AU wins or loses and that you don't want a good coach who has a win first or win at all costs mentality just because ohhhh nooooo those coaches may actually curse and not be perfect little angels. Wtf do you even watch sports or post on a Auburn message board? The point of sports is to win. Period. Losing is not fun. Winning is. Sports is just entertainment and fun but guess what?! You can't have fun or be entertained if your school is losing.

  30. I've actually stopped caring and watch the games out of a sick sense of morbid curiosity. If the coaches don't care enough to field a a decent team and the University doesn't care that the program is circling the drain, then why should I care? Love the forum, though. Amazes me there are still Malzahn acolytes riding the Pus Bus.

  36. Its bull****, bro. They're all "pass catching TE's" until they sign here and are never heard from again - and then the story is about how the NEW guy that they're recruiting/signing is needed because none of the others can catch a pass? Like I don't know how many times you have to get fooled by this storyline before something starts clicking in your mind. I thought the Frazier kid was healthy as of at least ~2 weeks ago, and yet I'm not seeing him involved in the game plan at all. They were running stories ~2+ weeks ago about how Morris was just waiting for the kid to get healthy; and yet it w

  42. To add to this point, QBs are allowed to get QB Coaches and I thought most of the big buzz around Bo Nix was the fact that he was coached up by his father from day one. I thought he was TAUGHT all of these fundamentals that Mac Jones had to learn. This used to be all of the storyline around Bo Nix, that he was groomed to be everything and THEN SOME that Patrick Nix was for us. Now, even with a bit superior scheme that has been tailored to Bo's style, we see him still going out playing like a Psuedo Manziel. (Too much freestyling and throwing bad reads + forcing the ball to the big WR a'la

  43. He has a huge buyout because we had a completely inept idiot at President who negotiated an extension for no reason. There is no actual proof that Arkansas wanted him "badly" - I know for a fact that the money people at Arkansas were extremely split on him because half of those guys blackballed him after the way he left Arkansas when he was OC under Nutt. Even if Arkansas wanted him badly, you understand that Arkansas is well below us as a program...right? If he was actually willing to leave for Arkansas - a shittier program - then he has no business being here in the first place, because that

  47. The Gus Bus drivers, attendants, and mechanics woke up happy this morning. They’ve got that LSU game and 19 Iron Bowl on repeat. After Alabama scores their 5th touchdown in the first half today they’ll probably remind us that Mario lost to Oregon State last night!
