    Here is what Gus needs to do

    If I were Gus I would take some of that 7 Million a year and go find the best recruiting, best fundamentals, best motivational offensesive line coach in America. Pay him whatever he requires to come to AU and turn him loose.

    LSU in a similar situation went for the 3 early. In the end it gave them a chance to win the game.

    LSU wins with defense. You gotta take the points. The one we missed was a bad snap. Probably threw off his timing enough to result in a miss.

    The bad snap on the field goal try didn’t help. We needed those 3 points.

    I knew not taking the 3 in the first half would come back to haunt us. IMO you always take the points early in the game. And I thought the 4th down play call had no chance against a defense like LSU. They were totally expecting that call. I put the whole thing in the bone Head category. In the end taking the early field goal would have change the game.

    Was Stidham hurt?

    Yes, they did kick the Tiger crap out of us. But, I will say we were doing quite nicely up by 7 and in the red zone again poised to go up 14 when they piled on KJ's right shoulder after the play was down. Should have been flagged. In the video it looked intentional.

    Upon Further Review - Auburn

    Totally agree with your assessment. I was upset that we did not keep running the ball on 2nd and 6 at the 14 and up by 7 in the 2nd quarter. Our line was controlling the LOS and Kam Martin was doing a nice job finding the crease. We go up by 14 there and maybe we have a different outcome. Instead we went cute and fumbled away the opportunity to put points on the board. On another note would love to see what this team could have done with a healthy Pettway and healthy KJ. I do think we were suffering from Iron Bowl fatigue.

    Rodney Garner

    Rodney Garner deserves a lot of love. Kudos to him for recruiting in and coaching up what is probably the best D line in the nation right now. Those guys are giving everything they have to dominate and disrupt the line of scrimmage. Absolutely Love watching them play.

    Auburn #2 in latest CFP rankings

    Their way of creating space for Bama to slip in underneath us.
  10. Don't know if Stat would be interested in doing this but it would be intersting to know if Gus passed more on first down when he had a QB he trusted to do that - IE Cam, Nick or the 2009 guy [ can't think of his name at the moment ]. Also it would be fascinating to scout our offensive formations and personel to see what our tendencies are from that formation and personel group. In other words how much information are we telegraphing [tweating in todays terms] the defense by the way we line up.

    This is the guy that I would love to see us bring in. Randy Shannon is a Co D coordinator at Florida and is making 400,000$. He is a great recruiter and has great contacts with the Florida high school coaches. His defenses at Miami and now Florida speak for themselves. In 2001, Miami Hurricanes head coach Larry Coker hired Shannon to be the Canes' defensive coordinator. That year Miami won the BCS National Championship, and Shannon received the Broyles Award recognizing him as the best assistant coach in college football. The Hurricanes' 2001 national championship team is widely considered to be one of the greatest college football teams of all time. During Shannon's six years as the Hurricanes defensive coordinator, his defenses consistently finished among the best in the nation: 2001 – 6th 2002 – 7th 2003 – 2nd 2004 – 28th 2005 – 4th 2006 – 7th

    Every D coordinator in the country that runs a 4 man front runs some version of the nickel, or 4-2-5 as some call it. With the spread packages of the day you have to have more DB's on the field. Otherwise you have matchup problems. Looks like they are running a lot of 5 under 2 deep. They are not tackling very well which is scary.
