  1. 2018 O Line Recruiting

    I wish Herb Hand the best at Texas but he has left our O Line recruiting a bit of a mess. He came in knowing he needed 4-5, 2 being OTs, & only got us 2.. Now we are left w/ whoever the new OL coach is, scrambling for either 2 OTs or an OT & a swing guy that can play multiple positions. Barring hiring a new OL coach who is already at a big time school that has long relationships with the kids, I don't see where we get a quality OL from high school to add to the class. Hand was why AU led for Gouraige. Odds seems long for AU now. My guess is Clemson gets Gouraige if they want him. As for the class it's a big mystery who we get now.

    Oops. Forgot about that.

  4. 2019 5* OG/C Clay Webb

    7 offers including AU, Bama, UGA, Clemson, & Florida Most assume he will go to Bama but he has visited AU just as much. Webb & Bo Nix are very close friends so that may help here

    Hot just refers to a lot of posts in a short time frame.

  8. All Things Final Spots in the 2018 Class

    I wasn't up to date then unfortunately. I did work the women's basketball game on Sunday so there was half a day that I couldn't be available to know there was a change. I assumed without knowledge of change. My apologies.
  9. 2018 4* OT Richard Gouraige (Florida)

    No. I know you were speaking specifically on Gouraige. I referenced him and the future in my reply. To win Gouraige Horton will have to do it as having the best relationship on our staff due to being Gouraige's area recruiter.

    If I knew you were going to take a big ol stinky dump in this thread today WDE I would not have wasted my time creating it.
  11. 2019 5* OG/C Clay Webb

    Unfortunately there are only about 3 elite recruiting OL coaches in the country. Not like we had a lot to choose from on the recruiting front. I'm like @bigbird, I would rather have gone with a young coach hungry to prove himself on the recruiting trail.
  12. 2018 4* OT Richard Gouraige (Florida)

    I specifically said precancer for that very reason cuz I know trhat's the circumstance you are referring to. He slowed down before then. Didn't say or imply he would. Yes and as his area recruiter Horton's our best chance Gouraige, like most recruits, will gravitate to who he has the best relationship with. Again. Never said nor implied that wasn't the case at all. Someone else will just have to do the selling sometimes to give AU it's best chances with recruits.
  13. 2018 4* OT Richard Gouraige (Florida)

    There's a lot more work in recruiting than that & there are times late in his 1st AU stint before the cancer that he just didn't do enough of the recruiting work.
  14. 2018 Recruiting thread (Updated 1/10/18)

    I'm sure there will be high grade standards involved which I'm good with.

    You do realize JB doesn't have to be the point man on the recruitment right? T-Will & Porter have been the point men on a number of commits we have in the 2018 class that don't play their respective positions.
  17. All Things Final Spots in the 2018 Class

    The other day being over a week ago. Things change, especially in recruiting over a couple weeks. He may still be a take but that's something the staff has to figure out. Staff hasn't decided that yet either as discussed thoroughly in the Fuqua thread
  18. JB Grimes Returns to Auburn

    We used zone some through Gus's career.
  19. JB Grimes Returns to Auburn

    Yes & nobody is always right.
  20. JB Grimes Returns to Auburn

    That being said, Cole never played for JB and makes his living as an unabashed analyst so his take carries some value.
  21. 2019 5* OG/C Clay Webb

    When is the last time you guys remember seeing a 5* C out of high school? I can't recall ever seeing one.
  22. 2018 O Line Recruiting

    Recruiting is more than just saying stuff like that. It's about selling, which other coaches will likely have to do for JB. I'm ok with that. The good news is JB is a great tactician & on field coach & might be the perfect guy on that end of things to create a good OL out of the jumbled mess we have now.
  23. 2018 3* CB Roger McCreary

    Knowing from twitter Bama offered Purdy a day or 2 ago & Memphis was 100% on his pick graph a few days ago & seeing it's now 57% for Bama it's easy to deduce Ben & others picked Bama.

    Blasphemy! The GOAT is never stale. Right @GwillMac6?!?! And next time spell his name right. It's Ric Flair.
