  1. 2018 5* QB Justin Fields (Update 6/6/17)

    Y'all don't think we showed him something tonight?
  2. 2018 4* Buck Richard Jibunor

    I'd like him to commit so he can start helping recruit his fellow Nigerian DE, Oladele.
  3. Pettway vs. Clemson

    Yeah, I'm gonna say I'd rather not go with our 6th string RB. You'll see Martin, Miller, and/or Barrett before Tolbert. I'm excited to see Pettway play against these guys though. It's strength (our interior OL + Pettway) on strength (their interior DL). That's always fun to see.
  4. 2018 5* QB Justin Fields (Update 6/6/17)

    I can understand the view that Fields offers less risk. He's more polished, as close to "can't miss" as there is. Even with that said, there is no guarantee that he'll be the better player when both guys are relevant. What I mean by that is, we're projecting out for both guys. The question is not, who would you take today? The question is, who would you take in two or three years? Because that's really what we're looking for. I've never been of the opinion that Stidham is leaving after one year. I just don't buy it. He has solid measurables, but he's not mind-blowing on the hoof. He's a QB with very limited experience at the college level, and he's not going to post record-breaking numbers. Why would he jump into a the Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Josh Allen class? Those three are comparable skill sets with either more experience or better measurables or both. He's coming back next year. If that's true, neither Justin nor Joey are going to start for us, and if they're not starting, odds are Malik Willis is QB2. It becomes a much closer question on who you like better between the two when you start projecting out two years. Gatewood is, unquestionably, the better athlete, which in some ways, means he has the higher ceiling. All things being equal you'd rather have the better athlete. The question is, can he close the gap as a passer? If you think he can, you'd rather have Gatewood. If not, you'd rather have Fields. But that's a tough question. That's why I'm not of the opinion that Fields is a "must have" for this class. If it's an either/or situation, I'm more of the view that it's six in one hand, half dozen in the other.
  5. UAT Co-OC's Son Killed in Shooting

    @augolf1716 you said it. This violence is just wearying. My family lifted up his family tonight.
  6. Alabama DL Raekwon Davis Suffers Gunshot Wound

    Well, based on general information that he wasn't cooperative, others on this thread resolved that he knew more than he told the police and was even possibly at fault (or at least not innocent) for being shot. I'm flummoxed as to how people could reeeeeeeeach for that possibility. So it's just a thread of flummoxed people.
  7. Alabama DL Raekwon Davis Suffers Gunshot Wound

    I'm not sure there's anything all that fishy about a black adolescent being uncooperative or lacking trust in the police. On some level, given headlines over the last two years and general disposition for late-teen/early-20s dudes, that seems almost expected. Also, maybe he does know who did it and doesn't want said individual to know he was talking to the cops. That could be a quick path to catching another bullet, but this time the bullet might be intended for him. Hope the kid is okay and makes a quick recovery. However, if he's really good, I will also hope the injury is re-aggravated just before the Iron Bowl, forcing him to miss that game.
  8. ESPNW report on sexual harassment

    Personally, I'd talk to my daughter first. I'd have words for the coaches, but I'd want her take first. No one has really done that in this story. We've seen lots of sides but not that one. On a different part of it, one thing to consider is that there might have been significant contractual benefits for Auburn to let Clint retire. If he was fired, even if he was fired for-cause, there's almost a guarantee of a contractual dispute over money owed post severance. It could very well have been a "let me walk away in exchange for a written release" type of thing. Absolutely no information on that, but it strikes me as a very real possibility.
  9. 3rd OT

    I've heard something similar to WDE on Cowart. He's going to be a true backup to start the season. If he plays well, it'll stick. If not, he'll be a 5th DT. Personally, I'd say, if Cowart loses his spot in the 2-deep, look out for Truesdell to overtake him by the end of the year as well. Regardless, Nick Coe is going to play a LOT.
  10. 2018 4* RB Asa Martin Commits to AU!!!

    Interesting. That's literally what he said.
  11. 2018 4* RB Asa Martin Commits to AU!!!

    I read it as (1) Martin and Joiner or (2) Cook.
  12. Thin on the Defensive Line

    To redirect the thread a bit, have we gotten a better feel for where guys slot in the rotation based on fall camp so far? From what I've read, it would look something like this: DE - Davidson/Coe DT - Brown/Williams DT - Russell/Cowart Buck - Holland/James After that, you have Johnson (if he's healthy?), Manning, and Truesdell at DT; Jackson as a swing DT/DE; Threat and Bryant (and possibly Moultry) at the Buck. Plus, a lot of these guys have some positional flexibility (Davidson and Coe can work inside at times, James can play the standard DE, etc.). I feel exceedingly comfortable with our two-deep at each spot. Any feel for who is stepping up behind them? Garner usually likes 5-6 guys inside, in particular.
  13. Checking in on Georgia Southern

    Man, my high school was a triple option team, I haven't thought about a B-Back in a long time. I'll be shocked if we come close to a shutout. Defending the option is a brutal grind.
