  1. The sad part. Gus is likely gonna pull off a good season this year by the skin of his teeth but lose the big one. And AU is gonna offer him a raise and another 6 yr contract. and Gus goes back to a 7-5 . 6-6. He dont have that "thing" that refuses to lose. He is just fine with being just good enough.
  2. Gatewood was the man for the Gus "system" He had to choose Nix cause his last name was Nix.
  3. I say implement a new coach if we start over and it dont matter if Gus approves or not. Gus has always been gimmicky, slight of hand, beat you cause you were not looking or off balance type of guy. He dont win with the sound fundamentals of football. He has won more than he has lost. But he has lost more than I like.
  4. Bo Nix CAN be a great QB. Bo Nix IS NOT a great QB. Same with Joey (when we had him.) Why not get the best JUCO or portal QB we can find and not start a true freshman right out of high school? He is not a 6'6 220 lbs Trevor Lawrence. Nix is a regular high school kid that's always been QB since 75 lb park ball and his daddy was always coach..
  5. Absolutely had nothing to do with him being a Thoroughbred named BO, NIX. Nothing at all. He was the BEST! dont worry about the proven studs in the portal. We got everything under control with this true freshman straight out of high school. Bo is gonna do well in time. Just funny we picked a true freshman this season when there were known superior options in the portal to chase.
  6. Would it be funny if Stoops and Gatewood make Kentucky a "football school" It wouldn't hurt my feelings. There would be a lot of noses I would like to rub in it.
  7. Gus has one more year cause he did mediocre but beat Bama. So its enough to keep the people happy for now. That contract that has been around our neck is getting looser. Why should Gus give a crap when his money is guaranteed? Auburn has made some stupid Football contracts in the past. Next year let Gus go and shoot for the moon! Why do we always go cheap and get the guy from Arky St. just to make him one of the highest payed half asses in college football? He got his big multi year payday guaranteed after his first season with someone elses players. Loses the BCS and every major bowl ga
  8. I understand the cerebral QB part. But a raw athlete that can truck your ass if he gets up to speed has its advantages. Newton for example. if the first or second read didn't work out he was still gonna get 5 yrds on his feet. Hell even if he had a man wide open if he saw an open lane he was shooting the hole. Nix cant do that Gatewood likely could.
  9. See I dont "get it" Gatewood was built for Gus's system but he picked Nix. I am perplexed. I figure a booster has something to do with it.
  10. We are AUBURN. Why cant we make a hire so good that everyone is like YES!!! We get a OL coach from Ol Miss? Because Ol Miss has been unstoppable? Why cant we get an elite QB that everybody is like YES!!! Why do we hire Mediocre coaches that can only get mediocre talent and expect to be an elite football power? I'm tired of Auburn being average.
  11. Sorry I didn't pop in the forum during the game. Over the years I have learned that I'm too "emotional" and say things that I dont for real mean. Example. "I hope that takes him out." (Some people will lose their diaper over that!) People like us dont ever mean permanent damage. Well not me. I got to scream KILL HIM! KILL HIM!!!! in front of the TV the whole time without pissing anyone off. . It was so good going into work! DAMN!. That FEELING!!!!!! GrrrrrrrrrAWL! Loud ass Bammers all year long talking smack. Not making eye contact too much. Hmmm? It is just so glorious! AUB
  12. Bama needs to beat LSU and AU needs to beat Ga and Bama. Not too much to ask....
  13. I hope the best for Joey. In a perplexing way, I hope he does very well and Gus has a fine dinner of crow from it. Maybe he wasn't ready yet. Gus should have done the things needed to keep him on at least till the end of the season. Showcase the man for what an athlete he is. Let him do tight end or find an athlete position. Hell! give him a quarter or two as QB with the cup cakes. God forbid next play at practice Bo steps back gets a bad foot plant rolls it over and has a high ankle sprain. (FREAK CRAP LIKE THAT HAPPENS ALL THE TIME).. Deal is Joey would have stayed if AU was undefeated . But
  14. I dunno if the D showed up hungover or what. I know its Kent St. but A&M will hang 21 pts on us in a hurry if the defense decides to take the first quarter off. And if they were playing their heart out the whole time against Kent St? We are in big trouble folks!
  15. Quality work as always Stat. Love you brother.
  16. Good insight. I have noted this as well. Granted the playbook opens up as the year goes on and the guys grasp and understand a more complex system and the coaches philosophy is better understood but often times its BS and they do the best they can with poor coaching.
  17. like running backs after a few hits ya get better. ya warm up . ya get loosened out a bit, your hips get good. you "TURN ON" your pads warm up. you stride better.. Ya shake the getters. You warm up and things slow down you see better. you feel better.
  18. fairish. when I was prime I got faster. not 5 sec. its a clock after the ball is spotted.
  19. Conditioning should ALWAYS be a factor with modern day supplementation . Jackson was from the 80's that was before freeze tents and Nurses loading you up with 2 cold bags of IV Lactated Ringers.
  20. Fair again. That's up to the conditioning coach. I have wrestled 3, 3 round matches at state finals. Its whats the puke bucket is for. Elite physical condition is the LEAST you can ask from our men in orange and Blue.
  21. kill their game plan and start Joey for QB. You automatically change the script. keep them off the "Good Foot" from the start. If we win the flip ? differ to 1/2 half. start Gatewood. if it sucks it will just make Nix more passionate. If Gatewood gets on a roll. join me.Aat the least it will spook them. and change them up.
  22. Again My point is BooBee would not be too phased after running a 40, to run another 40 after a 1st down. Spot the ball, move the chains and line up. Sub him out you gotta give the other team time to sub and most of all breather.. In the NFL your dealing with sweet little millionaires who will cost you a lot of money for a simple cramp in their hammy. Its why I love college football. They wanna be millionaires.
