  1. Bammer destroys runner up trophy

    roid rage, anyone?
  2. Alabama or Georgia?

    I honestly wish they could play to a 0-0 tie. I have always been pretty cool with UGA fans until this year. Living in GA has been unbearable since the SEC champ game. I'll NEVER pull for bammer but I can't bring myself to pull for UGA either. This is truly a nightmare scenario
  3. Gus would be wise to look around

    Thank you! This is the absolute worst possible time for us to go coach hunting. I don't see any way that a coaching search this year goes well for us.
  4. a loss could cost job.

    Sumlin is probably safe. He isn't supposed to win this week. Gus, however, if he drops one after being a double digit favorite is probably done (unless he can win out)
  5. Finebaum: CGM to Arky plausible

    I may be wrong about this and please correct me, but if this happened, Arky would first have to buy out Bert. They are happy to do that I'm sure, but if Gus left of his own accord, wouldn't they also have to pay Auburn to get Gus? Don't get me wrong, this would be a GREAT situation for AUburn, but i can't imagine Arky being that stupid.
  6. What's wrong with this picture ...

    Does anybody else smell a bammer on the OA News staff?
  7. 2018 5* QB Justin Fields

    The No. 1 overall recruit in the country in Justin Fields has seemingly eliminated one major recruiting power on his top schools list. Florida is no longer on his radar after fellow five-star quarterback Matt Corral committed there in the last week and he detailed to 247Sports the three schools now leading for him in Auburn, Georgia and Florida State. RELATED: Justin Fields clarifies rumors of leader in recruitment He initially said that Georgia and Florida State were the two key recruiters of him, but then added this: “They are,” Fields said. “Well, I would say Auburn also.” He also gave some insight on what another member of his family is thinking about his recruitment right now. “My dad likes Georgia and Florida State,” Fields said. “He likes the location with Georgia – and the coaching staff there. He likes what Florida State has done at quarterback as well though.” There were rumors that Fields might commit in the next month before the season, but he shot those down and said he plans to take some visits during the season before committing. He also said he wasn’t sure if he would get a visit in this week before the dead period starts. The 6’3″, 221-pound QB is the top dual-threat QB in the country as well as the top recruit overall according to 247Sports’ own rankings. He’s got over 40 offers including some from Penn State — where he originally committed — Alabama, LSU, Nebraska, Tennessee, Texas and USC among many others. From BuzzFeed I know its probably not the best source, but we sound like sort of an afterthought in this article.
  8. Favorite AU Player That Wasn't Everyone Else's?

    Come on fellas, we are three pages into this thing and no one has mentioned Lionel James yet?
  9. 2 Auburn redshirt-freshman to transfer Auburn defensive lineman Antwuan Jackson Jr. (52) works out Tuesday, Feb. 28, 2017, during the first day of spring football practice at the Auburn Athletics Complex in Auburn, Ala. (Julie Bennett/ (Julie Bennett) By James Crepea Email the author | Follow on Twitter on May 18, 2017 at 10:19 AM A pair of redshirt-freshman are transferring from the Auburn football program. Defensive lineman Antwuan Jackson Jr. and defensive back Marlon Character Jr. are leaving the program, Auburn coach Gus Malzahn told the school's in-house website. "They've decided to move on," Malzahn said in a report from the school. "We wish them nothing but the best." Jackson, a former U.S. Army All-American, was a consensus four-star recruit and ranked among the top 10 defensive tackles in the 2016 recruiting class. "We feel like he is one of the best defensive linemen in the nation," Malzahn said on national signing day in 2016. "Coach Garner recruited him extremely hard for well over a year, almost two years. We think he has a bright future and he's a fine young man." The Ellenwood, Ga. native enrolled early in 2016 and after redshirting last season, spent most of the spring with the second-team defense, recording one tackle, a sack, on A-Day. "Antwuan could be a good player," defensive line coach Rodney Garner said in March. "He still has to get a better grasp on the type of effort and execution it's going to take to perform at this level. That's been his biggest thing, the learning that, hey, it takes -- you have to be willing to strain, you have to be willing to get uncomfortable to be able to be a good player. He has a tremendous skill set, he just has to embrace just turning it loose, taking the governor off and being able to play at a high level." Character, a three-star recruit out of Grady High in Atlanta, started his career at safety while redshirting in the fall and moved to cornerback this spring. "He's doing a good job," secondary coach Greg Brown said. "Marlon's got length, he'll compete, he's tough, he gets after it. We're excited about the progress that Marlon is making. ... He's making strides and he's got the right attitude and he's working hard at it. "Right now we're seeing he does at corner, he's doing an outstanding job. He's on the path, he's by no means has arrived, he's a work in progress but he's taking strides and trying to get better." It's unclear where Jackson and Character are headed. will update this story.
  10. Secretiveness in the Program

    I've heard high school coaches talk about Al Borges passing out copies of Auburn's playbook at clinics. Apparently, no question was off limits back then.
  11. Jeremy Johnson, an Auburn man

    Jeremy had a prime opportunity to be a cancer to this football team. However, everything I've seen about him indicated that he handled his situation with great maturity. He seemed to be willing to do whatever was necessary to help the team. I feel terrible that things went the way they did during his time here. I'm sure none of us have been subjected to the kind of ridicule that he and his family had to listen to these last two years.
  12. Truitt transfering to UNC (Updated 1/29/17)

    Makes room for Franklin to move to the slot.
  13. Musburger, Palmer to call Sugar Bowl for ESPN

    I haven't listened to him call a game lately, but from what I remember Palmer has an open disdain for Auburn. I've literally never heard him say a complementary remark about us.
  14. Does AU have enough GREAT recruiters on staff?

    I think Kodi can become a light out recruiter given time. He probably needs a couple of years to learn how to swim with the sharks of the recruiting world. I would bet that the kids LOVE him.
  15. Food for Thought

    ...and if Johnathon Jones doesn't pop a hamstring on a punt when he has the return man dead in his sights, we are 2013 champs. Luck ran both ways that year. Or how about this one, Steven Clark hadn't had a bad punt his whole career with Auburn. He shanks TWO punts in row (back to back) that give UGA the ball in plus territory on their last two drives. Had they had to move the ball the length of the field on either of those drives the prayer would have never occurred.
