  1. This is an example of why I stopped listening to Gus’ press conferences. What he meant to say was “I’ve been doing the same thing all the time (the only completely true statement in the quote). Chip’s calling the plays (leaving out; I tell him to run). He’s a heck of an OC (leaving out; as long as he does what I tell him to do).” You just have to know how to interpret his coach speak.
  2. Al Borges?

    He is the part of the staff that Gus doesn’t talk with or listen to.
  3. Anyone talk to Gus

    The shutting down of communication indicates the end is near.
  4. Now that we have (hopefully) calmed down

    Well, abw, you passed the first interview with this answer, you show a lot of promise.
  5. Now that we have (hopefully) calmed down

    Ok, abw, interview question. What would you do to right the ship in Auburn’s current situation? Not just with football, but with athletics? And your thoughts on the football coaching situation.
  6. Something UGA did right

    If anybody thinks we will beat UGA this year, remember UGA beat us last year without scoring an offensive TD. I know our QB was hurt in the second half, but he was as effective as JS was in the 2nd half of the LSU game. Substitute the INT with the punt return and you have the same game in the second half. O points scored and a loss because our defense couldn’t hold up and gave up two FGs. The common denominator? Our coach. He has not learned from his mistakes and often repeats them.
  7. Now that we have (hopefully) calmed down

    Hire abw as our interim AD.
  8. JJ is a sunshine pumper, what would you expect?
  9. Surprisingly, Gus doesn’t know what a DT QB is either unless it falls from heaven. Remember, it took Gus 3 or 4 games to know what he had in both Cam and NM. It took pure athletic ability and player instinct (drive) to beat both Wash State and Miss ST in 2013, it wasn’t Gus’ scheme.
  10. EYE OPENING and undeniable facts

    Was the name Viper1?
  11. Now that we have (hopefully) calmed down

    I feel for you abw, but those factors are null and void if Auburn is competitive in the 2nd half. Those factors start weighing on a team when the fire is coached out of them. The WR’s dropping balls was reminiscent of the 2nd half of UGA last year, when Will Harring starts to lose concentration you know you are in trouble.
  12. Stidham not allowed to audible

    I wonder if there is even a line of communication to the rest of the team to change a Gus play? The whole team would be in shock if he tried to audible.
  13. Up 20-0, here's the play chart

    The issue in this game, as I see it, was the plan was to be ahead by the half and sit on the lead. Therefore, there was no adjustments to be made at half. Same for Ole Miss. This is why he is so inept at scoring in the 3rd qtr in his HC career. The opposing defensive coordinator adjusts and Gus has not clue what to do, as he doesn’t see how to adjust during the game. When he does make adjustments during the 2nd half, it’s usually too late or ill advised (see LSU this year and UGA last year). He has high paid resources, but never listens to those resources. I would be willing to bet Chip and Kevin were in his ear during the second half, Kevin especially as his side of the ball was affected by injuries and just plain wearing out from all the 3 and outs. Gus just knows better and that is no way to run anything, especially an operation that depends on performance. There is no open lines of communication, the communication is only one way and that makes it frustrating for the support staff. It’s probably already happened that the coordinators have stopped offering advise and just take what ever Gus says.

    Our goalie played a great game. A lot on nice saves.
  15. Time frame to replace an AD?

    Yeah, I was just trying to find the silver lining in all of this. I was being as optimistic as possible and hoping for a quick solution so the University and Football can start getting over this mess without dragging this out too long. On another note: I grew up in Satellite Beach many moons ago. I still love the area.
