  1. Byron Cowart

    Agreed - It was only two tackles, but he looked sharper than he has previously. Let's hope the move inside pays off and he continues to progress. I think people underestimated the significance of losing A. Jackson at DT (after also losing Adams, Swain and Lawrence), but Cowart could help fill that void nicely.
  2. Auburn Football: Everyday

    Good stuff with Gary Walker calling his fam around the 16:30 mark. Must be a little dusty in here or something...
  3. 2018 4* WR Matthew Hill commits to AU!!!!

    Just hoping the University of Auburn doesn't steal another one from us here...
  4. scrimmage updates?

    Even if Stidham returns, I'd still rather have a backup who has some experience in case of injury. If White were 100% it might be a different story, but if his shoulder isn't 100% then we can't even count on him as a backup. I know you can't count on future recruiting/signings, but it sounds like more help may be coming in the next few years. I don't think we will need Willis to start for 3-4 years. Given the overall picture, I'd play him for a drive or two in week 1 vs Southern.
  5. scrimmage updates?

    Personally, I'd prefer to burn Willis' redshirt immediately and get him some mop-up duty whenever possible through the season. If he is needed in 2018, I don't want his first snaps to be against Washington in the kickoff classic. Not exactly sure what we have to gain by redshirting him.
  6. Scholarship Numbers (Updated 8/18/17)

    Ellitor can answer with specifics, but we should get closer to 85 in 2018 with another full class in Feb. We just had a couple of 2017 signees fail to qualify this year, along with some transfers/dismissals (and a couple of early departures to the NFL draft).
  7. 2017 Fall Camp - Sat, Aug 5 (First Day Full Pads)

    Actually "dinged up" ranges from blister to decapitation in Gusspeak.
  8. Scholarship Numbers (Updated 8/18/17)

    77 seems like an awfully low number of scholarship players going into fall camp. Bordering on probation-level numbers. And yet I think 8 of AU's 20 highest-rated signees of the past decade are on the current roster (per a recent article). Strange times. Regardless, I like the two-deep at most spots. Let's reward a few walk-ons with some schollies and get ready to whip Ga. Southern.
  9. Defensive Pass rush

    Marks was freakishly athletic. I get the weight similarity, but otherwise haven't seen enough explosiveness from Cowart to draw that comparison yet.
  10. Defensive Pass rush

    I hope so, but at 283 he is still an under-sized DT.
  11. Defensive Pass rush

    DE depth might be ok if everyone stays healthy, but I'm more concerned about the DT spot which I haven't seen much discussion about. We lost one starter in Adams and two key rotational guys in Lawrence and Swain. I haven't heard any indications that the incoming freshmen DTs will be ready to contribute. So that leaves two true DTs in Russell and Brown, backed up by two (relatively inexperienced) tweeners in Williams and Cowart. Unfortunately, Brown can't play every snap... I wish they'd move one of the 17 backup offensive guards to bolster depth at DT. I know we'll have some 3-man fronts which lessens the number of DT snaps overall, but I still think the position is a little thin with the departure of A. Jackson.
  12. 2018 5* QB Justin Fields (Update 6/6/17)

    I went through Camp War Eagle with Meiko Collier (probably 20 years ago this month actually). All I really remember about him - The counselor asked us an icebreaker question to name someone you think is sexy. His answer: "Me". I guess the coaches didn't feel the same way?
  13. 2018 5* QB Justin Fields (Update 6/6/17)

    Typically we don't condone assassinations but I suppose in this case we might be able to arrange something
  14. Monty Adams and Carl Lawson Draft talk

    SEC just set a new record with 21 players drafted in the first two rounds (out of the first 58 picks). Still none from AU. I agree with various posters here that it's partly due to lost recruiting battles (see: R Foster, J Davis for example). But Temple, Villanova and some place called Ashland currently have more draftees than AU. Obviously I'm biased, but I'm surprised every year at how low our guys get drafted - and how many don't get drafted at all (like Avery Young last year). Something has to change with player development - and we need to change the overall perception of AU players by NFL scouts.
