    Tiger Talk - Arkansas Week

    Gus has not settled on his RB rotation until the 4th game or so since he’s been here. I wonder if the new 4 game RS rule will alter his thinking on this? I would think Kmart may be the next to go.

    Da*n auto correct. Gus does look worried in that shot.

    Will Stidham Return for 2019 Season?

    I don’t think Stidham will not come back next year. It will be interesting to see how Gus develops his backups this year. Time will tell. If Gus goes the juco route in the off season, it will be telling.

    Unispired, unprepared, underachieve

    The Arky game will be telling for several reasons. Gus’ buddy Chad, is coaching Arky in his first year and it’s not going well. I can see Gus wanting to concentrate on the running game and the score being something like 42-3 at half. The interesting point is how Gus handles the 2nd half. Does he get the #2 and #3 QBs in just to hand it off; or does he let those guys get some game reps at throwing the ball? Does he do what’s best for the development of his offensive skill players or waste an opportunity to improve? If he does what’s best for Auburn that maybe a detriment to his coaching buddy, I will be feel 100% better. Otherwise I’ll just be happy we won.

    My Thoughts From the Stadium (LSU)

    As other posters have alluded to, Coach O has complete control of his players. When we had that first turn over, LSU was fired up, our defense came in cold and uninspired. The crowd tried to get the defense fired up, but LSU drove down and scored with little resistance. At that point I knew it was going to be a long day, I thought we would win, but it wouldn’t be easy. When LSU tried that fake punt and failed, it lit a fire under the offense and they took full advantage. The offense reeled off 21 unanswered points, 14 before the half, when the LSU defense was exhausted. This, as another poster pointed out, led to the “injury” time outs in the 3rd and 4th qtrs. This loss was the third time in a row that Auburn has lost to a team with less talent. LSU last year, the bowl game with UCF and this game. The common denominator is the coaches of those teams motivated their players to exceed their natural ability and we had no fire to show them they couldn’t. I would really like to see some fire in Coach in situations like this. He showed that fire last year after the LSU loss, I wish he could recognize when that fire was needed during a game. With CCL in the booth, he’s the only one that can provide that fire on the sidelines. I don’t want to bash coach, but “milktoast” Malzahn needs to turn into “Mad Man” Malzahn during these critical situations during the game. Maybe even cuss once.

    LSU postgame thread (merged threads)

    I agree with most of this. What Gus has done with his new contract is buy him 2 maybe 3 years to right his ship. The big question is; does he recognize what he needs to do to succeed in the SEC going forward? The only time I remember Gus having “fire in his belly” is when his system is dominating the opponent. 2013 was the lone exception when he won some close games, but it seemed that it wasn’t the fire in his belly, it was that the team refused to loose. It followed in the 2014 season until the Texas A&M game. It seemed after that loss the team’s fire was non existent. Going forward, it will be interesting to see how Gus handles the next two games. Will he work on the run game and abandoned the pass against an overmatched opponent, or will he work on shoring up the passing game? Will we see new people in key positions, will we see the #2 and #3 QBs actually throw passes? This could be the coming out of a new Gus. I’m actually hoping for the best. We’ve got Gus for awhile, I would love to see him turn into a solid coach. When he has to hire another Offensive coach it will be interesting to see if he gets another YES man or someone that will challenge him in a way to see things from a different point of view. It really is the only way to grow personally and professionally. Oh, to the bolded part, there are poster on here that will argue that Gus is already successful.

    Hawaii Rainbow Warriors’ ultra-fun offense

    I doubt it, he’s too young, but I bet his Ole man does. I couldn’t help myself.

    Do not fear, my man crush (Chip) needs this game to ensure his break out season. He has been looking forward to this game for a year and will utilize JS’ skill set to the max.
