  1. Arkansas hires Chad Morris

    I would think he would lean heavily on his former stomping grounds in TX as well. TN, not so much. Gus needs to step up his QB recruiting to TX as well. With Stidhams success, Gus needs to parlay that into some serious consideration by QB recruits in TX.
  2. Back to Back 10 win Seasons

    I don’t think LSU should be a problem. The biggest problem for LSU next year will be having a rookie QB starting the season. I would thing Guice declares just because LSU’s offense will be one dimensional, at least at the beginning of the season. Another reason for the optimism is we get them in the 3rd week of the season in JH. Washington concerns me because Gus has historically started the season slow. I’m optimistic as for just the 2nd time in Gus’ career he as a returning QB.
  3. Arkansas hires Chad Morris

    When Bret Bielema was hired, he brought in a team that mirrored what Saban was doing in Alabama at the time. I wondered how he was going to out recruit Saban for the same players, obviously he didn’t. CBB’s offense lost it’s identity in the last few years that led to his demise. The defense also hasten his exit at Arky. With Chad going to Arky, he will be competing with Gus for the same type of players on offense as Auburn. I hope it ends the same for Arky as it did with CBB. My concern is how well Chad will be able to recruit the QB position. Chad seems to have had better “luck” with getting and developing QBs that come out of the HS ranks than Gus has had.
  4. On to UCF

    Auburn started the season 2 games behind in the overall series wins. We ended the season in the same position. Like kissing your sister, no one is going to brag about that, well except some Bama fans.
  5. Gus' first and most important job

    Gus, I think, is realizing he needs to make some changes. In one of our first games against either GSU or Mercer, their coach said he gamed planned against Gus’ offense instead of CCL offense. It took us a while to out talent those teams. After the LSU game, the play calling and scheming changed. I’m hoping for the best and trying to be optimistic.
  6. Gus' first and most important job

    Gus should go into a game with a plan, but realize that plan may not work. Therefore, have a contingency plan, a plan B so to speak, and what is just as important, learn how to recognize when your original plan is not working. By the way, this type of philosophy can also be used with personnel decisions.

    And play all of the RBs during the season.
  8. Do we still protect Gus from Arkansas?

    Auburn, no matter who the coach is.
  9. Do we still protect Gus from Arkansas?

    Way to go Gus and Auburn, I’m you reached a deal. Keep on evolving Gus.

    The link goes to a photo gallery. Anything concrete about the title?
  11. Georgia Game (SECCG) Report Card

    Yeah, I missed the press conference due to being depressed. Did he mention he wished KJ told him he was hurt?
  12. Looking ahead to 2018 RBs

    It appears that Gus doesn’t let a player see the field if Gus doesn’t have trust in that player if he can’t perform to perfection. He just keeps their reps in practice without meaningful game time reps. He’s done this ever since he has been here, no matter what position. The injuries have painted Gus into a corner for three years now, not saying the inuries are his fault, just that Gus doesn’t seem to develop and utilize his talent when he has a chance.
  13. Do we still protect Gus from Arkansas?

    It all boils down to; does Auburn want to have Gus as our coach or is his contract demand not worth what we have seen for 5 years? It’s out of the fan’s control. Auburn, through the BOT and big boosters, will give Gus what they are willing to do for Gus and Gus (not his agent) will have to decide if he wants to be the coach at Auburn. Good luck Gus, we’ll all be watching.
