  1. Don’t go down this rabbit whole man. You’ll waste a whole lot of time. We aren’t allowed to point out obvious position coach concerns, anymore. JUST FALL IN LINE, RIGBY!!
  2. There is absolutely nothing negative or downvote worthy about this post. Of course you’re skeptical about the guys from Troy and Fresno State being able to recruit against some of the teams that are recruiting better than anyone has in college football history. Only time will tell if these guys and this staff can play with the big dogs. It is cool to see a staff of fresh faces though. Gives me hope again. I would have liked to see T-Will, Jeff Grimes, and Dell McGee somewhere in this staff. Maybe someone else running strength and conditioning. But if wishes and buts...
  3. Yea Grimes recruited those guys that blocked for Mason when we were just running for 500 yards a game in 2013. 😂 I miss Jeff Grimes and wish we could have brought him in as the OC, if for nothing else, for his OL development and recruiting.
  4. I’m thinking Gave Poe. The linebacker coach at North Alabama. You heard it here first.
  5. Nah he’s in the 85th percentile with height and 74th for weight. He’s going to be playing for Tracy Rocker or Brad Bedell, because those are the only two positions I know how to teach him. 😂
  6. Not going to lie, this part made me lol. I can’t even argue about this. I was arguing with like 3 different people and I have a 9 month old, who just learned that he can yell at the top of his lungs and climb daddy at the same time, so yea I don’t have much consistency with my thoughts anymore. In fact, I think I’m losing my mind by the second.
  7. This is my favorite post today. Lol
  8. I’m not even upset man. If you looked up my post history, you’d see that i don’t take this stuff too seriously. I’m just being real. If we got a guy like Dell McGee I’d be more optimistic and sure minded than I am now about recruiting WR’s. And so would 99% or the people on this board that care enough to follow the hire. But at some point someone, somewhere decided Cornelius Williams and Dell McGee became the same quality hire and to pretend that they aren’t is apparently a no no now. I didn’t get that newsletter in the mail. I like your optimism man. I really do. And I have no int
  9. I absolutely was scared s**less when Caddy was hired at the recruiting. Probably even more, because had a history of hiring yes men. But Caddy has for the most part showed he can go after those guys and grab em up.
  10. You didn’t say that but a lot of people did. And no it’s not me writing him off. It’s me making the claim that, because of his pedigree and name recognition, and the fact that he’s coaching for a new name to the SEC, I can’t picture him walking in and recruiting against Bama, etc. I can picture him getting hired by Saban and being successful at recruiting, because he will have the Bama program to fall back on. If you can honestly sit here and say that you have the same kind of confidence in this guy as you’d have if we hired McClendon, Tee Martin, or Damyune Craig, then we just have
  11. You right. I did say that. My bad. What I meant to tell him is I’m not attacking him specifically for being a Harsin or bust guy. I don’t know him enough to know that’s how he feels. But I’m not going to assume because Harsin knows more about football than me, he can’t make a risky hire.
  12. What a strange couple of months this has been. If you had told me the day after Gus was fired that this would be the Auburn staff on January 16, 2021, I would have been super confused and frantically googling half the names, including the head coach. JUST ME KEEPING IT REAL. Man I hope this thing works out. OPTIMISTIC AND HOPEFUL I just can’t see a picture a reality in my head where this WR coach out recruits Bama, Ole Miss, Miss St, Georgia, Florida, Texas A&M, or LSU for high profile receivers. WHY IM CAUTIOUS. AND I BELIEVE IT TO BE COMPLETELY NORMAL GI
  13. I didn’t say you or anyone else had that view, buddy. I’m just saying that’s how I go into coaching hires. Optimistic at new possibilities, but cautious at the fact that even good coaches make risky hires, and have to turn around a find somebody else.
  14. It absolutely can give him a chance to our recruit those other schools, and it will more than likely have to be what he hangs his hat on until Harsin can build a reputable program that can recruit itself like Bama, UGA, etc. But you’re absolutely right. If we hired Bama’s WR coach, I would have to google his name and then I’d see that it’s Bama’s WR coach and think to myself, “if Nick Saban (the guy who has won 7 national titles) hired him, he must be great”. Or if Kirby Smart (the guy who has built a recruiting machine at Georgia) hired him, he must be great”. But I don’t have that kind
  15. Maybe he does come in and take names. I hope so, because I want to see us put more big name WR’s In the league. And I’d probably have concerns about those Minnesota and NW coaches as well, for the same reasons, until the show that they can do well. What I’m not going to do is assume that just because Auburn’s head coach hired him, he must be great at coaching and recruiting. I’ve been hit with that harsh reality too many times over the last 33 years of my life. I believe Tony Franklin was where I first got burned. And the burning has just been steady and slow from there.
