  1. I don't think that GP will underperform, he is a stud. I do think that there is a very real chance that his attitude will derail his career. He is VERY good, but watching him play, he also has a huge ego and does some pretty stupid things in games.
  2. After Josh Chapman from Hoover flipped from AU to uat at the last second and suddenly, magically qualified, I feel like we're still owed one 🙂 I actually think that Jovon's career arc would have been ENTIRELY different if he hadn't been screwed over and had to go JUCO. (Fun note: the NCAA ruled that Chapman's grade change by an ex-uat cheerleader who was taking calls from uat coaches did not impact his illegibility, b/c he didn't do it himself, but that same NCAA ruled that Jovon's grade change by a guidance counselor DID impact HIS eligibility because... reasons.)
  3. Saw Luper's name tossed out by Auburn Sports: https://auburn.rivals.com/news/luper-moves-to-the-top-of-au-s-list
  4. Does anyone know what level of competition he plays against?
  5. Too bad for AU. He had a lot of potential. I hope he has a good career there.
  6. I actually disagree from my own amateur evaluation. I was originally "star struck" with Cain, but after watching film of both Cain and Mar, I feel like Mar is the better athlete and will be the better RB. Trey Sanders was definitely better than Cain (watching them play on the same team). I typically dislike comparing recruits to past stars (we usually do it wrong), but MAR does remind me of KJ quite a bit.
  7. I agree with this. MAR seems like a game changer, more so than Cain, IMHO.
  8. This is bordering on willful incompetence. Part of the AD's and President's job is to give our football team the best chance it can to success within whatever parameters the university deems fit. I don't see a way in which this could have been less damaging than the way it has played out. If this is all true, we're going to lose some of our best recruits, and are going to be even more short handed compared to our major rivals while being led by a lame duck coach. I feel like Chevy Chase should be starring in this movie.
  9. I think this is why we look so bad in the first two to three games EVERY year, even the good ones. We just don't know who we are at the beginning of the season, which is... unfortunate.
  10. First down. If we can minimize three and outs and keep our team feeling that they are in the game (and our defense somewhat rested), we can hang with them. If we string together a series of three and outs on offense, the team will probably not recover from that.
  11. I don't really think that is a fair claim. Maybe we didn't target the same players, and maybe we haven't developed them as well as we could, but uat has a very clear advantage in recruiting raw RB talent. They have three RBs who are legit 0.96+ guys. Two of those are 0.98+. Our highest ranked RB is Joiner, at 0.93 (which is a world of difference from a 0.98 guy) and he was never scheduled to be a marquee RB from everything that I read.
  12. This is absolutely silly, I watched the Hewitt Trussville / Thompson game the other night, and it was basically a commercial for UAT. Auburn needs more exposure; it will help us recruit, and recruiting will help us win. Having our couch on national television in an "expert" or just positive role is good for Auburn, regardless of how the fan base is feeling about him right now.
  13. Kinda wish we would have run the full offense and tried to score again, with Ole Miss pulling out all the stops in a game they can’t possibly come back in.
  14. Gotta side with CGM. As much a our DL gets mugged, it kills me to see a holding penalty thrown on us on a big play.
