  1. I think this is pretty accurate. Hopefully, our fortune will change but I wouldn't be surprised if this team goes 8-4 or 7-5 on the season.
  2. Kerryon Johnson update anyone?

    I understand folks are upset. And, I am too but lets be realistic. I suspect that the reason why CGM doesn't give details on injuries is because he can't. HIPAA and all that stuff. Also, I don't expect Gus to be very forthcoming when it comes to personnel issues (suspensions and injuries). And, I'm fine with that. I am not an insider or on staff in the program so I don't expect to know every detail of the football program.
  3. A few thoughts on M. Willis....

    With the incoming potential talent (if you go by the star rankings) of the QB classes each season and the expectation of most recruits that early playing time is in their future, I am not sure what redshirting really accomplishes in the first place. I know, I know, some players are simply not ready to play their freshman year and need a year or two to develop but it is rare now-a-days to see someone play for 3-4 seasons. I guess I am just wondering how valuable redshirting really is. Particularly in our situation. We've had some redshirt QB's end up leaving the team for a variety of reasons and never see any playing time. To add to this, it seems that more and more freshman QBs are coming into college football and playing well right out of the gate. So, does it seem to you that redshirting is losing some of its worth?

    Not much of a measuring stick, I know, but I like what I saw out of him in the A-Day game.........

    Ha Ha !! This was definitely the case when I was there!!
  6. Auburn is a top 10 team rn...

    I said it pre-season and I stand by it now. For us to have the kind of season you are describing 23, we MUST have better play from our WR corps. IMO, this is our Achilles heel at the moment. Our wide-outs have been awful for a long time now. I was so hoping that the current crop of guys would change that tendency but thus far, they don't seem to be able to break out of whatever mold that has been formed over the years. Very troubling.

    Face it dude, you have a reputation on this board for making wild-a@@ statements with no basis. All you can do at this point is own it.
  9. ***Auburn vs. Mercer -- Game Thread***

    Good gracious, are we going to have 11 fumbles in this game?
  10. ***Auburn vs. Mercer -- Game Thread***

    Well it ain't the cheerleaders fault. It is either the wideouts or QB so, as usual, I am not understanding what you are trying to say.
  11. ***Auburn vs. Mercer -- Game Thread***

    You seem to be suggesting that most, if not all of this, is on Stidham because the WR are running good routes and are open. Please explain why you feel this way because I am not seeing it (on TV). Maybe someone at the game, that can see the entire field, has a different perspective than what I can see on TV.
  12. ***Auburn vs. Mercer -- Game Thread***

    Are you at the game? If so, please give some more details. Are the receivers running wide open or is Stidham unwilling to pull the trigger and thread the needle; make a quick throw?

    Did I hear the announcers say that Mercer's football team is only in its fifth season?
  14. ***Auburn vs. Mercer -- Game Thread***

    How? Our WR corp has underachieved thus far this season. I am still not ready to hang all of this on Stidham.
