  1. difference between Grimes and Hand

    I’m just glad to see J.B. back home where he belongs.
  2. Iggy A Natural At Corner

    We need CB’s much more than we need WR’s. If he’s capable of making the transition it’s a smart move.
  3. Shivers might be the next Darren Sproles or Lionel James.
  4. Pettway is a mess

    He certainly was a good one when he was healthy and had his head on straight. I hate to see a young man with so much potential mess it up. He would have been better served if he had cleaned up his act, come back and put up some great numbers in 2018. The injuries weren’t his fault, of course, but obviously there was a lot of other stuff going on.
  5. Men vs. Missouri

    That run in the second half going from a 1 point lead to 20 was about as good as I have ever see an Auburn team play. Their crowd went from cheering wildly to heading for the exits in about 5 minutes of play. Our guys just blew them off the court! Wow!
  6. I have a hard time classifying a New Years Day bowl against an undefeated opponent as “meaningless”. Is every game other than a playoff game or one that gets you into a playoff game now meaningless? If that’s the case why don’t we just do the whole season as a playoff. Just play 5 exhibitions like the pros then seed the season of 128 or whatever the number of teams here are these days. 128-64-32-16-8-4–2-1. There you go. It would take 7 games to determine the champion. Then the truly meaningless exhibitions would be played at the beginning of the season and everything else would be meaningful. Of course, the great rivalries that have made game what it is would mostly go away but occasionally Auburn/Alabama and Auburn/Georgia might be a really meaningful game if they happen to meet in the playoff. And, of course, they could also meet in one of the exhibitions but those would be meaningless so I doubt anyone would show up to watch.
  7. Maybe I’m too old school but I don’t think you bail on your team when you are able to play even if you are playing one of those Louisiana directional schools in the Weed Whacker Bowl or whatever they are calling it these days. You don’t let the guys down who helped you get to the first round. If I was a coach or player on one of the teams thinking about drafting him I would reconsider. You don’t want a teammate placing himself over the team.
  8. JB Grimes Returns to Auburn

    He is a hell of a lot better OL coach than Hand. Maybe not the HR hire many would have hoped for but certainly better than what we had. I can’t see why anyone would be disappointed with an upgrade.
  9. grading o line for 2017 season

    I would have given them a solid B till the last 2 games. Those we so awful it would be hard to come up with an average. I would say Smith, Golson and Dunn were solid most of the year.
  10. The most difficult schedule in 2018

    Washington will have a much better coached team than we will. I think we have more players but they have the best coach in the country and a great QB. I look for it to go about like UCF.
  11. Peach Bowl Game Report Card

    With an OL out there just going through the motions and wallowing around against an inspired defense it was a recipe for disaster. That was the worst performance by an Auburn OL I have seen in a long time. It looked like they were sleepwalking.
  12. Auburn moving forward

    We just have to find a way to get the ball to NCM and McClain. You look at those guys physically and you have to wonder what the heck is going on with them not getting the ball more.
  13. Herb Hand contract

    I just don’t know if Gus will ever learn. Surely there are better OL coaches out there than that.
  14. Pettway Declares for Draft

    I don’t think he was coming back to Auburn anyway. Good luck to him!
  15. When the Oline is just out there like they don’t give a crap and are getting their butts handed to them what adjustments are you going to make to overcome that? That was one of the most pathetic performances I have ever seen by an Auburn Oline and it all starts up front. Pitiful.
