    safety CJ Harris ineligible

    Having done a modest amount of research, it sounds like a little clarification may help. CBD oil contains no THC...the stuff in marijuana that gets you high. It's made from hemp plants which are extremely low in THC to begin with. Medical marijuana is a whole different is pot that can get you stupid high. CBD oil like many supplements isn't tested in the sense that they have a "ingredient" list that's verified. It has been scientifically tested to treat epilepsy and reduce seizures in some people but many of the other claims haven't been verified. State by state legality is in question and by some accounts, if the contents are sourced outside of the US, then it is legal in all states. Like has been said, this isn't something that provides a competitive advantage, it doesn't get you high, I can't think of of single reason the NCAA is making a fuss over this when there is rampant cheating going on at at least 1 top team with documented evidence and it gets completely ignored. The NCAA is the poster child for ineffective bureaucracy.
  2. The USC thing didn't work out because an "agent" was linked to it and a rival agent ratted the deal out. Also, A $puat coach was directly proven to have given a player $500.....but because he had a receipt written in pencil, he was able to pay it back with no penalty....which flies in the face of what you stated earlier about if the school could be linked to it they would be penalized. Just cleaning up some facts, please resume.

    replacing 4 starters on offensive line

    AUIHI, if I wanted to hear constant bitching every day I could have stayed married. Why not wait until we lose the A-day game or something before you crank the negamode up.
  4. Fair enough, I would have liked to get a couple more highly rated linemen but some years just don't pan out. All that means is the coaches have to work harder making the most of the players they do have.
  5. So the opinion of some is just cheat like hell, get busted and go on probation? Brilliant. Things that work for the state schools in places like Alabama, Georgia and Louisiana don't work so great for Auburn, and we generally do pretty well. Some people need to put on their big boy pants and expect our coaches to work harder to get our players conditioned, tough, and smart. Sheesh, what a bunch of defeatist.

    Football Only Facility

    I'm not that up on the economics of it but I'm pretty sure football brings in 100MM per year.

    The most difficult schedule in 2018

    There are 2 scheduling changes I'd like to see. Get $puat and UGA back to home and away every year and eliminate 1 pointless OOC game which does absolutely no good other than the scrub team draws a paycheck. Just add another bye week if need be. Now if they did see fit to go to a 10 game schedule, adding another round to the playoffs may become possible but that's another discussion.

    Since when does cheating make something better? IMO, all athletics should be a function of God given ability and hard work. When you introduce a wild card factor like PEDs that one person may take and another may not, you skew the playing field into an unbalanced and unnatural environment. In a way, I would think it detracts from a sport, not make it better.

    Will we beat Clemson this year?

    I think we beat Clemson based on the QB position alone. Stidham has taken live game snaps and their RS hasn't.

    Where does the 2017 AU roster rank?

    First, throw the Scout rankings out because they are typically way off. Second, LSU has out-recruited us the last 5 years and even with questionable coaching have averaged over 1 more win per season and one less loss. Third, only the last 5 years matter because that's who makes up these teams leaving us with an average composite ranking of 8.4 vs LSU at 4.8. IMO that's a talent advantage. Throw in the NFL departures from both and clearly LSU has had more draftable talent. And IMO, Guice is better than any running back we have or have had since Mason. They always have great WRs (maybe just lacking at QB to get the ball to them but I don't know about them this year).

    2017 QB thread (Merged)

    We don't need to stop hyping players, they need to start performing to expectations.

    Pettway says he is coming back

    I think you are comparing reasonable game plans to ridiculous game plans but that's just my opinion. Whoever is calling the plays has a penchant to run up the middle on first down a very high percentage of time and often for limited gains, to not exploit the middle of the field in passing and in general to call and to be predictable in general.

    Pettway says he is coming back

    I don't know that I would call it "very good". We won games against bad defenses despite the play calling sometimes.
