  1. Kid reminds me of Jack Ganus from Birmingham. Attended UAB and when they disbanded football he needed a place to land. Auburn fans and unfortunately Auburn coaches didn't want him because he wasn't big enough and didn't carry enough stars. He ended up starting for GA and being their on the field defensive coach. I think we just landed a diamond in the rough.
  2. It has been the same for the over 55 years I've seen it. Some things never change but we can hope!
  3. Not a lock for anyone, but at one time it seemed to be a 2 team race between bama and Auburn, but it now appears to be a 3 team race. And we're going up against the 2 of best recruiters in the nation. I don't like our chances at the moment.
  4. Talked to a friend who is well connected to Clemson (wife works in their athletic dept.) and he says Dabo is feeling VERY good about Ross. The QB (can't recall his name) they have committed is really putting the squeeze on Ross and thinks they have a good chance with him.
  5. My brother was recruited by FSU back in the day and they had quite the "entertainment" provided for the recruits. His campus "host" was nicknamed squirrel. I guess she liked nuts or something.
  6. And the ladies in the sweaters.
  7. I was rather fond of Jimmy Sidle. We've had some really good QB's over the years, but recently (in the last 10 or so) we have struggled unless the QB was a juco. But our troubles are about to be over I think.
  8. I believe if he did put out a list, Uncle Bo would kick his butt!
  9. Winning in a big way will cure everything. But it has to be consistent. We can't have a banner year and then drop off and win 6, 7, or even 8 games a year. We need 12,11,and 10 win seasons back to back to back to prove we are an elite program and quiet the rumblings about Gus being fired, etc.
  10. I live just outside Pelham and know folks who talk to Dabo weekly. He ain't leaving Clemson for bama. He's got it made and will go down as the BEST coach in their history. And his family loves it there.
  11. The NFL folks will realize it when Auburn starts developing their players in college the way bama does. Our undrafted free agents who make NFL rosters have the ability, but they have not been developed. It takes the NFL coaches to maximize it. Auburn is on the right track at the moment with our current staff.
  12. Earlier this morning (Friday, 6/9) al.com had posted he committed to bama. It has now been taken down. Not sure what is going on.
  13. Do the AU coaches feel an early commitment is going to happen or will Justin wait to a later date since he just de-committed from PSU?
  14. I guess that's where the phrase by Larry Blakeney "keep in down home cuz" came from!
  15. Thanks to all for your input. But it seems to me that a hot bed of talent area like Mobile is not a place for on the job training, which it appears Gus made a poor decision to put Kodi there with his lack of experience. Hope it all works out for Kodi and AU.
