    Men vs. Clemson

    Disgusting under performance thus far. A small thin team, but that is not new. a total lack of heart and intensity at this point

    Bruce Status

    ***Removed part of the post due to the AUFamily's No Rumors policy*** My 2 cents is Auburn basketball is the highlight of the Auburn athletic department. Unless he is demonstrably complicit, his job should be secure.
  3. As with most areas of sales...recruiting is a becomes a matter of trust. Recruiting involves the parents as much as the player. The player wants a clear path to the NFL. The parent wants their child to be safe, cared for, and to get an education that can sustain them beyond football. Despite Gus’ stiffness with the media, he apparently, has the ability to connect on a personal player well being level. That level of caring resonates with the recruit and the parents. Regardless of on field results, that level of trust is the high card.
  4. Good on ya! Wonderful perspective!

    ***FINAL: Auburn 24 Mercer 10***

    At this point the O coaches seem to anticipate and plan for nothing...

    Who Do You Want?

    Perhaps, but has anyone done better with the talent available to Miss St?

    LOL...well, if he's able to stay on this roll, all of us calling for his head will beg him to stay. He will be a NAME OC.

    Anybody ready to take back all the bad things they said about Rhett? For sure I was guilty....I'm gonna guess he was Gus's "boy" since high school and it was tough to not be subservient to Gus. Regardless, it seems to be working, and I'm darned happy.

    **Arkansas State at Auburn - Game Thread**

    Auburn is the worst...after a questionable being in slow motion getting the next play off. Auburn Fast? Not after an iffy turnover.....geez Ark State ball.

    QB Development

    Aside from catching lightening in a bottle with Newton and Marshall, what has this staff done with QB development? I'll leave it to the recruiting freaks to tell me the star rating of our QB signees vs other schools. However, it seems if they don't have IT walking in the door they will not acquire IT through the instruction they receive. Curiously, Gus does not want the QBs getting coached up by "outsiders". looking across the state it is obvious Kiffen does a better job with QBs than the gurus on our staff....frustrating
  13. No warm fuzzies here. The trend on win and program positives is not going up. As with any work performance situation, it is always better if the employee can turn things around. I am hopeful about 2016, but the schedule is tough. The schedule and new recruits seem to set up better for 2017. Gus deserves that much slack, but not a contract extension.
  14. You nailed it. I'm on the tgr4life bus. I couldn't have said it better. Well maybe a little better. Excellent points. However, the question is why are key employees leaving for the SAME job some place else? I do not know what the politics are within the program, but it is fair to say that CRL has not distinguished the offense in a positive way the last two years. Whether that be incompetence or coincidence I do not know. We do know that no one was knocking on CRL door for a promotion at another institution. Auburn will survive, but IMHO this is another example of poor management and leadership.
