  1. Well, I know I'm going to catch a lot of flak from some of you on here, but here's my feelings about this situation: I'm pissed about this. If this kid ends up at Kentucky, especially since UK didn't even recruit this kid when he was in high school, that to me is just a total slap in Bruce Pearl's and the program's face. If it is true that daddy Powell went to AU to get his baby boy and wouldn't even talk with the coaches, that sucks even more. OK--let me have it. i'm a big boy and I have my big boy pants on.
  2. I for one do not think he's ready for the pros. Not the NBA anyway, maybe Europe. Okoro was ready for the pros. Cooper is not. But, I think he's gone. I just hope he doesn't regret the decision, even if he will be making more money than most of us combined.
  3. I look at it like this: Rocker didn't like to go on the road to recruit but would recruit when the prospect was on campus; Eason has never recruited. So, in a sense, Rocker never recruited, either. I feel like this is a trade-off, and AU may be better off with Eason since he and Mason, who reportedly is a good recruiter, are buddies and he can learn from Mason. Rocker apparently never wanted to learn and had no interest.
  4. There are those, even among the AU fans, who believe that success breeds success, and since Bama is very successful, they bring in the cream of the crop. Like I said in my post, that is probably true NOW, but I do believe, and there have been evidence of things going in Bama's favor as far as recruiting the top players, when Saban started at Bama, he got a lot of "help" luring those players. You also have those who say that "every team cheats," some of those will turn around and say that Malzahn ran a clean program How can every team cheat, but Auburn was a clean program? I for one do not beli
  5. Here is my conspiracy theory at work: If the NCAA is going to come down on Pruitt, they are going to take their sweet time doing so--not because of their love for Pruitt, but because of their love for his mentor, Nick Saban. Pruitt, and Smart as well, know where the bodies are buried in Tuscaloosa. Either one, or both, could use that knowledge against the Nickster and the NCAA, who has seemingly turned a blind eye to the goings on in Tuscaloosa, and have the NCAA go easy on them. As for those who believe Saban runs a clean program and gets the cream of the crop recruits because he sends them t
  6. For that matter, what's the fascination with Bill Clark? Hugh Freeze; Luke Fickel? What's the fascination with any of the names being batted around?
  7. I for one am getting more and more resigned to the fact that Gus will be back next year---and I just threw up in my mouth posting that. At first I thought the silence from the AD and administration meant that something was going on behind the closed doors and that Gus would be sent packing. Now I'm thinking that they are just waiting for things to "settle down" amongst those of us who want him gone before making the announcement that Gus will be back. Hello Mediocrity my old friend...
  8. It makes you wonder if Malzahn has some incriminating pictures on some of the PTB and threatens to release them. Or, it could be as nixtosanders wrote, the PTB are perfectly content with a mediocre program, as long as he beats Bama every 2-3 years. Apparently beating Georgia or a fully-loaded LSU team on a somewhat regular basis doesn't matter to them. AU has already lost the future at RB, who was committed for over a year to Auburn. Maybe he'll re-commit, but I kinda doubt it. Matthew Hill, one of the top 4 recruits from 2018 has put in to the transfer portal. Two of our top OL recruits flipp
  9. Wasn't Cristobal one of the top recruiters in the country when he was on Saban's staff? The fact that he lost to Oregon State yesterday is on big deal to me. Hell, Malzahn lost to South Carolina, who fired their head coach mid-way through the season. He also had our team poorly prepared to fact UGa--losing to them isn't as bad as the fact that AU looked like it didn't even want to be on the field that day. And, for those who point out that he has won 3 against Saban---last year's win was because the defense picked off 2 Jones passes and returned for touchdowns, and in 2013, I believe it was DC
  10. My fear is that this process is going to take so long, that Cooper will end up going to Europe and sign with one of the European pro teams and after he does that, the NCAA will rule that no rules were violated and he could have played at Auburn, but has now signed with a pro team for money.
  11. To me, whether or not that was a correct call doesn't matter. Auburn was a 14 point favorite coming into this game and had to win by a field goal with 7 seconds to go in the game. Arky played better than AU and probably should have won. Felipe Franks, of all people, actually out-played our 5-star QB. The only positive out of this game was Tank. I hope I'm wrong, but I just don't see too many more wins for our team this season.
