  1. Nothing beats a War Eagle moment!! Living in Texas they are always joyous occasion. My most recent was last week in Red River, New Mexico. I was loading my family’s rental skis in the car, and my step-son taps me on the shoulder saying Auburn fans, Auburn fans. Both me and my daughter (soph at AU) whipped our heads around to see a early 30’ish couple walking the street in their AU gear. They then got bombarded by smiles, fist pumps, and WAR EAGLES!!
  2. Yep, Joey Mac is my neighbor. Name drop much. Lol... Georgia Tech with the 24th ranked class. I would say that’s impressive?!?! Not that I have ever noticed their classes, but I would not have guessed that they would have a top 25 class.
  3. I am more interested Uga situation. Not that I can ever remember them struggling to find a QB, but I am more interested to see what life for Kirby is like without Jack Fromm leading them. IMO, Kirby has been blessed with a unique leader playing QB for him. I am very interested in seeing what life is like for Kirby after Jake is gone. Because that dudes leadership skills are not easily found. While the same could be said about LSU this year. We all know that Coach O can recruit like no other, and he has managed to put a staff around him that I believe will be able to adapt to life after Burrow. UGA on the other hand, I will need time before I am convinced.
  4. Have to improve on FT shooting. Under 50% yesterday.
  5. Lol. Well I guess I wasn’t alone in thinking that he would be a good hire. Excuse my ignorance!! Now I will look to see what happened to their OLine coach. I guess the Morris hire wasn’t the only thing to sneak up on me. Smh!!
  6. What do y’all think about the other recent ex coach from the SEC West? The Morris hire snuck up on me, but when Matt Luke got fired my ears did perk up and mind started wondering. If I’m being honest I didn’t know one thing about him before he got the ole Miss job, but since then every time I have heard him speak I have been impressed. Which means he is probably a good recruiter. Plus I think having head coaching experience is a good quality to have, and may be exactly what Gus needs.
  7. Having been to Lubbock numerous times. I love our chances!!
  8. Man coverage against WR’s in this conference. That is no small task. Proud of these guys!!
  9. I hope JG makes a name for himself there at UK!!! I will always be pulling for that young man.
  10. They wouldn’t dare name it the “The Tua game”.
  11. I get what you saying about blowing the first half, but that is not the first time I’ve seen something like that with the clock and replay. Overall, that crew called a fair game, and it was nice to see for a change!!
  12. The guy that’s behind Derrick is a ridiculous!! Actually they both are, but he is behind him pulling him back. Notice where the number 5 is. In his hand. Shirt pulled out!! Geez!! SMH!!! To think we have struggled on the O-Line the past couple years. CJB has been teaching how to block all wrong. I guess the refs didn’t send AU the e-mail that said we’re not calling holding anymore. I’m convinced that when LSU watched tape on that UF game and saw that the refs were letting a lot go. That the topic was brought up that if your getting beat just grab them. Let’s make them make sure the refs are gonna call it before we change. The biggest slap in the face to me was the next week. First play of the game DB gets an illegal hands to the face. Which was a horrible call, Because he was strong arming the guy and was pushing his shoulder pad. Regardless for the refs to call that they had to been looking at DB. I just took it as ya were watching you, but we’re still not gonna call a holding against you.
  13. In fairness, the 80’s episode was for the most part all Auburn.
  14. I’m sure CBS/Danielson are receiving the same check that the officials are to not call out those blatant callsor non calls. Like how in the world was their only one camera angle shown on the Seth Williams catch. Why did they show a replay of the Face mask on Nix, but only show the end after the face mask. I spend most of the games on CBS rewinding the missed holding calls because if there is a blatant holding. They won’t show the play again. Yet let one of our db’s touch somebody and they will show five different angles and Danielson will make his definitive comment. Heck on our second td against uga he called it a pick three different times. I could be wrong but it’s not a pick if the ball is passed behind the line of scrimmage. Which it was. Not only that it was a block because he did not touch the defender until our guy had the ball. Yet he still insisted on calling it a pick, and pretty much announce that we got away with something. Which was just flat out wrong!! Heck he even made the comment on the LSU game that our D-line was complaining that we were being held. He said he went back and watched the last play and their was no holding. Well I went back and watched most every play, and that certain play was the only play that we weren’t being held!! It was obvious that LSU knew they weren’t gonna get called for holding in that game. I keep thinking that we should have picked up on that and held every play just like them. Ha, made myself laugh. No way we get away with it.
  15. Hard to believe he implemented that in one week. Hats off to a coach that realizes his players strengths and utilizes them. He had Jamien Sherwood stacked right behind whomever was playing MLB and at first I thought he was a spy on Burrow. Then I realized he was responsible for any RB coming out to the flats. He may have been responsible for both. idk. Would love to hear Birds thoughts on that. Anyways, Sherwood was having to cover some ground. I thought his play and Roger McCreary’s coverage skills really stood out in that D. I kept waiting for the great Gary Danials to notice that D. Just so the camera angle would show a better view of what all was going on. Of course he didn’t, he was too busy watching AU’s d-line not get held. His words no mine. I did notice when they got their 1st first down we were in our base D. Anyways, every defensive player bought in and it looked like they had been running it for years!!
  16. Did the article ever say who was back up now? I’m guessing Cord, buuuttt Gus is still the coach. No telling what that offensive genius may have in mind.
  17. Has anybody asked Gus why he kept Joey from going in on his package?? I hope Joey comes to DFW. I have been waiting so long to watch him play. I would pay to see a SMU game. My gut tells me he ends up at UF. Mullen with that kind of athlete would be scary!!
  18. Took my family to their first track meet this weekend. Got to see both of our speedsters run the 100. What a treat!! We walked over from the baseball field and Kam Martin was walking from the dorms. So I told my boys that he was from Texas too. He was class talking to them he asked them as many questions as they asked him. I was impressed!! Back to Worm. Oh my goodness. He is an absolute freak!! There is no way a kid that big should be able to run that fast!!
  19. The title of this thread is spot on. I went to bed last night thinking I would get up this morning and think about how great of a run it was. Unfortunately, it just still hurts.
  20. This is petty, but if it is just so easy that we make one more 3. How about going back and and look at UVA’s last 3 before the half. The offensive rebound shouldnt have ever happened. The guy who got the rebound came from out of bounds and never established himself back in bounds. To think I spent half time yelling at the tv about that call or non call. Like I said I know its petty, but it was just the first thing I thought if when I read your post. Anyways, I agree with you that it was a great year!! What a great run this team had!! WAR DAMN EAGLE!!
  21. Interesting. Thought the offense looked much better with JVon in. Although Harper did have some nice finishes. I like Birds idea!!
  22. Isn’t Chad Morris considered part of Malzahn’s coaching tree, and Jeff Grimes was hired as BYU’s OC with his time in Gus’s offense being mentioned. Just playing devil’s advocate. Don’t kill the messenger!
  23. The MAJOR problem with the offense. The O-Line plays better everything around the offense does better. Running game, QB, and time for the recievers to get open. All we have to do is look at the line olay in the bowl game!! On a side note, am I the only one that is bothered by the fact that Braden Smith is a starting tackle in the NFL? From the limited games I’ve watched of the Colts he looks to be a damn good one too. It is almost mind blowing to me that we had that kid at AU and nobody tried him at Tackle.
  24. I will be there with my family!!! That is all I know about the game. So glad to have the Tigers playing so close to home.
  25. Saban maybe acted like he didn’t want it, but I remember years ago him saying football needed an early signing period. Matter of fact, I chuckled when it came to fruition thinking about his previous comments.
