  1. Probably in regulation. Purdue hit 99 last night in OT.
  2. I think this is probably what will eventually happen. However I think they’ll tear down Beard-Eaves and build a partial parking deck/partial class building on the site, maybe a new kinesiology building? Sports science? Definitely Biggio needs to go. It’s practically useless anyway. Turn it into the driveway for the football facility and leave it at that - no public thru traffic.
  3. It’s plenty big, if you build up. Put in a parking deck on the ground floor, meeting rooms, conference rooms, reception, cafeteria on the first floor. New state of the art weight room, plunge pools, rehab, etc on the next floor. Have a floor just for recruits and players - Xbox and PlayStation, pool, lounge, etc. then have your coaches’ offices and position meeting rooms on the top floor with the view. Give the head coach an office like the one at Oregon’s facility - all open with big windows and a great view of the practice fields. You could even tear up Biggio and build an access tunnel to the practice fields or the indoor facility that could lead straight from the weight room floor. As long as you think Up and not out, there’s plenty of room at the old track. Plus that’s probably the only real option unless you demolish the coliseum first.
  4. Imagine if we had that kind of depth at linebacker! 16 scholarship backers? Why then we’d only need 5-6 linebackers a year every class. Imagine the possibilities.......
  5. That's an interesting theory about Borges. But no. After Cole Bennett scored that last TD to make it 28-7, everyone in that stadium knew for sure that it was over. Tubs called off the dogs and put in the subs. Prevent defense allowed Alabama to score the next 11 points to get it close. We missed a field goal to make it 31-18 too. But we never stopped sacking Croyle hahahahahahahahahahahahaha. I'll never get tired of that game. Greatest thing I've ever personally witnessed in JHS.
  6. Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon them. May their souls and all the souls of the dearly departed, through the mercy of God, Rest In Peace. Amen
  7. In the last 12 years: 2-4 in Tuscaloser (2006, 2010) 0-5 in Athens 0-6 in LSU Well, I guess it'd be 13 years to include 2006 in there but whatever. As far as other teams since 2006: vs Arkansas - 3-3 vs Ole Miss - 5-2 vs MSU - 4-3 vs A&M - 3-0 (2013, 2015, 2017) vs Tennessee - 2-0 (2009, 2013) vs USC - 2-0 (2006, 2011) vs UK - 2-0 (2010, 2015) vs Florida - 1-0 (2007) vs Mizzou - 1-0 (2017) vs Vandy - 0-2 - both losses in bad years of 2008 and 2012 I remember when Tubs made a big deal about playing for pride in the white jerseys. There was a stretch of like 3 seasons where we lost like only 1 away game? I miss those days boy howdy.
  8. You gotta pass to set up the run at this point. The O line is incapable of getting a push against the top half of SEC defenses. Let Stidham throw a good bit and use the most talented part of our offense and then see some running lanes open up. No way we can try to line up and get positive yards on the ground with our standard inside zone. Defense? Sure we’re man enough. Give them some momentum to work with and they’ll play more than well enough to win. Just don’t think it’ll be enough. Got to have the best game offensively of the season. I’m not betting on it but I’ll be cheering hard nonetheless.
  9. Agreed. Don’t waste Hugh Freeze on Gus..
  10. We’ll have Tega, Troxell, and Brams returning - all 3 seem to have some potential provided they get the right coaching. Not sure what happened to Horton or Harrell. At any rate, the O-line COULD be better next year with the right coaching and focus. But I realize that’s asking a lot of this staff.
  11. Could just as easily be MSU vs UAT on Nov 10. That will be a ranked matchup where auburn will be Unranked regardless of this weekend’s game. I’m thinking that regardless of us winning or losing this weekend, it’ll be a night game in Athens.
  12. Malik's been pretty solid running the ball, not exceptional but not bad runs. Boobie is clearly the best all around back if healthy, Shivers is exciting and the future looks bright for him. Kam is just not quite suited for this type of running attack - he's more of a situational guy and that's a problem that slows this offense down when we have to substitute him in the game. Who knows about Asa. Kam is fine but, forgive me for saying this but I'll quote Catelyn Stark: "they are the Knights of Summer, and Winter is Coming!" Boobie, Shivers, and Miller should be your 3 guys at RB for November/Winter. They make the offense function the best. Pick one at a time, don't sub them out unless they're injured and go fast. It may not end up elite but the offense will be much better on the field than it has been.
  13. Half play-calling, half O-line. This offense, whether Malzahn would admit it or not, is based just as much on running around as through you. Being in the redzone means yardage that's more crowded with defenders. That's typically a problem for a lot of spread teams that are built around getting your playmakers in space. Malzahn has tried to build an offense that uses more pro-style running elements but as we've seen, unless you have enough competent big uglies up front, and physical enough RBs in the backfield, you're not gonna be pounding in the football like UAT can on every drive. That's why having a dual-threat QB is so effective. It gives you another dimension to have to defend, somewhat equalizing the advantage that defenses can have in the redzone with the numbers. We never had a problem getting in the endzone with Cam, and rarely did we have a problem with Marshall running the offense either, outside of a couple of games in 2014. That's not saying Auburn can't be successful with a pocket passer or more pro-style QB. But think about the UGA games last year. In game one, aside from the Stidham scramble for a TD in the 3rd quarter, weren't all of our TDs from big plays outside of the redzone? The Slayton long pass TD, the Ryan Davis tunnel screen TD, the KJ screen pass TD. 3 times in the first half, Auburn drove into UGA's redzone and came away with field goals each time. The big plays made that game explode for Auburn, otherwise the margin of victory would have been considerably slimmer, though we obviously still would have won. Now look at the 2nd game. We didn't have nearly as many big plays, our TD drive was good and we got in the redzone to score that one but the other couple of times we got in the redzone, we came away with no points - Stidham fumble, blocked FG, etc. Interestingly enough, the Iron Bowl last year was pretty good for Auburn's red zone percentage - all 3 TDs came with Auburn deep in the red zone. I attribute this to the play-calling (which was superb in this game) and execution - Malzahn led teams always seem to play at a much higher level vs. UAT, even in losing efforts.
