  1. IF.... The good guys had won...

    With the month off we would have everyone back. Beating UGA and Bammer back to back was not an accident. We were set up to win it all until the injuries and pure fatigue derailed us in the SECCG. I have no doubt we would have gotten the ugly trophy.
  2. Upon Further Review - Auburn

    Right on Stat. Think about it. A panel of top college football experts agreed on the top 4 teams. We played 3 of the 4 and one of them twice. That's 4 games against the top 4 and 3 of those games occurred in the past 4 weeks. We won 2 of the 3 and both were relatively easy wins (23 points and 13 points). We went in yesterday with our 1A RB out and our 1B RB so banged up he shouldn't have played. The 2 fumbles and the blocked FG turned the game in UGA's favor and our defense finally gave out late having played Bammer last weekend while UGA had a cakewalk against Tech. You give this team a month to rest up, get everyone back healthy, and put them in the playoff. There is no doubt in my mind they win it. Now go back to last year. We played all 4 of this year's playoff participants last year. Now add it up and that's a total of 8 games against 4 of the other top teams in the country in a two year period. What other team in college football does that? None! Face it. Auburn is not under coached or out manned. It is over scheduled. I don't know that there is anything we can do about that but I sure as hell don't think we need to be talking about running coaches off because of it. What this team and these coaches have been up against these past two years is unprecedented in college football. This isn't the old days when you play 10 games plus a bowl and maybe a couple are against the better teams and then someone decides who is the #1 team. You want to win the NC now you gonna play 15 games and in our case we are gonna play at least 4 or 5 against the other top teams. It's a tough row to hoe and ours is usually going to be toughest of any team in the country.
  3. A little perspective, please

    Letting Gus get away at this point would just be stupid. Who we gonna get that would be better? This team matches up with any team in the country athletically. Recruiting has been solid every year and we have some great assistant coaches (except for special teams and that needs to change). The record year in and year out has more to do with who we are playing than anything else. Look at this year's playoff. We played 3 of the 4 teams and one of them twice. We played all 4 of this year's playoff teams last year. That is ridiculous but that's what we do. Gus doesn't make the schedule but he has to play it. Name one other team in the country playing that many games against the other top teams.
  4. The Absurdity of Auburn’s schedule

    To see the absurdity you just have to look at this year's playoff. We played 3 of the final 4 and one of them twice. So we played 4 games against the top 4. And who was our last game last year? The other one. Yes, as bird says " the scouts watch all our games."
  5. Projection: Peach vs. UCF

    There is nothing to gain playing UCF. Win and we were supposed to win. Lose and they are Cinderella. Since we play Washington in the new dome the first game next year maybe it helps us to play another game there but that is about the only silver lining I can see and that is a reach.
  6. 2018

    The big thing for 2018 will be getting settled on a new OL. Plenty of talent to choose from but not a lot of experience. We also need to hang on the the juniors that could declare early like KJ, KP, Carlton Davis, Jeff Holland, Deshaun Davis, Dontavius Russell. Then there is the glaring obvious deficiency of doing something, anything, to improve the punting and kick coverage teams.
  7. SECCG - Postgame Presser

    Amen to the amen. 3 critical mistakes and 4 injuries turned the game today. The Stidham fumble, the blocked FG and the Kerryon fumble, plus injuries to Kerryon, Marlon Davidson, Tre Williams and Carlton Davis. The defense finally gave out late after the injuries to 3 key starters. This is a great team and it was a pleasure to watch them this year. They had some low points but those 5 big wins including 2 over the #1 teams down the stretch of the regular season was epic. Thanks and War Eagle!
  8. Do we still protect Gus from Arkansas?

    Just match the Arky offer and it all goes away. Everything else is in our favor except where he came from and we can't change that.
  9. A little perspective, please

    Really proud of this team.
  10. Stidham - Will he stay or will he go?

    Staying absolutely.
  11. Thank You AU Players and Coaches

    Yes. Yes. Yes. I never in the world thought they could beat UGA and Bammer back to back but they did it. Injuries and just simply running out of gas cost us today but everyone should be very proud of this team and they should be proud of themselves.
  12. Our Time: One win away

    I believe this and what's more important you can just see that this team believes it. I honestly believe this is the best team in the country right now. I can see them team taking it to UGA again and then rolling through the playoffs, beating Okie in the Rose Bowl and finishing it off with a beat down of the Dabo's.
  13. A Few Notes From Inside the Stadium Today

    Great story! Made my day!
  14. Gus, The Alpha

    I just hope he told Dabo the same thing!
