    Georgia vs Florida

    Did AU recruit Swift? I remember we recruited Holyfield and I think he was leaning our way untill we backed off and he became all UGA

    Who would replace Malzahn (merged threads again)

    AU is better job than Louisville. I like the Brohm brothers for AU

    The ultimate defender

    Who is going to come here and work under Gus? The only good solution is firing Gus and bringing in a HC with strong reputation who may elect to keep the D staff and can save this recruiting class.

    Now what?

    Until we fire GM nothing really changed.

    What do we do on offense now?

    I don’t think much changes. It’s about scheming for the talent you have and opposing Ds and not just playcalling. I see no O creativity or adjustments to what opposing team is doing. And if you look at my posts from the past, I pointed out that our weak recruiting at Oline, RB and QB was a major concern especially compared to our competition. Gus has little coaching exp at this level and it shows when he has to hire O coaches. That whole side of the team is weak except for the WRs. Bad coaching; bad recruiting.

    If you were the coach

    If I were Gus, I'd fly in my only two friends Freeze and Briles in for a long weekend and have them analyze and help re tune our offense. The D-coordinators have us figured out and we need some offensive minds; not sure Gus or Chip qualify.

    Post-LSU -- Coordinators Speak

    The Oline is our #1 weakness. Kim and Horton have played bad and we all thought Brahms was going to replace Kim for the LSU game now that he is healthy. Didn't happen even though Brahms was on the sidelines ready to go. WTH Gus/Chip/Grimes? It was obvious to us observers that Boobie was our best option at RB and he showed that against Washington. Shivers was clearly #2. Yet the coaches refuse to acknowledge the obvious. Why do we never have our starting Oline and RBs set every year? Chip - you are re-evaluating now after the loss? It wasn't painfully obvious aft the Washington game which we could have easily lost?

    Media crickets

    To be fair, it was a close game that could have easily gone the other way. Both teams had issues. If we had beaten them solidly or annihilate them the way Ole Miss and LSU are scorching their opponents, it would have made a statement. Let's just be happy with the win. I hope we get our Oline and RB issue corrected before LSU.

    RBU Auburn University

    UGA has had much more success recruiting the top rated running backs. Why? They play 2-3 backs while GM plays 1. AU used to have 2-back O (Ronnie and Cadi), but we have been a one back offense with Gus. Imo that is why we aren’t rbu snymore and what has hurt us in recruiting.

    Stidham about to be "turned loose"

    Maybe CL will be turned loose to run more of his offense.

    Gus is an average coach

    And don’t think Pruitt hasn’t taking the artform to UT. I tire of people who say all teams do it including us. If so, we’re bad at it because we come in 2nd on so many recruits. We will see this next week where we land on some of these recruiting battles. We can then revisit some of our opinion of Gus and staff. We need to start leveling the talent level with this class or we will be perennial #2/3 in SEC

    Coach i’m not at all offended by your reply to my post. I hope we have a great yr w none of those unexplicable hiccups. And come May 1 we may have some good recruiting news to get momentum. Let’s see how our RBs and Oline perform this yr. They should be at min satisfactory. I just point out that it seems every yr we have the most concerns on the O side and that shoyldn’t be with an O HC.

    Gus is an average coach

    It’s very hard to understand how yr after yr we have questions on the O side. The jekle and hyde of the offensive performance is hard to understand. While we have improved coaches, recruiting, and play on the defensive side, we continually have issues on the O. And we have an offensive guru as a HC. Baffling. Yes some of you will throw out the O numbers from last yr and yet many of us are unsure what kind of team we will have this fall because of the O. RBs? Asa should be a good get but how does UGA get the caliber of RBs they get yr after yr? We are a run first offense but can’t get the tops backs to come. Why? I want to get the top recruits on the oline like RG is able to bring in on the D side. I really hope we get a top 5 class this yr and get quality where we need. But we seem to have much more success recruiting D then O and that’s on Gus. Is Kirby a better coach? I don’t know but he is making sure we don’t out recruit them in Ga.
  14. Folks I really don’t mean to be negative and I would love nothing better than to become a dominant winning team. So many here brushed off UGA last yr and continue to think KS will fail. I see a program that has the same confidence and swagger as Bama, very good coaching, and yes I will say it, underhanded recruiting practices learned from NS. I’m around uga fans and they brag and laugh about Kirby bringing Nick’s knowledge of how to cheat and not get caught. No way they dominate the way they did without something under the table. Do I think they paid Fields $300k? Yes something was paid. I think we have very good D coaches and Gus leaves them alone. I don’t have as much belief in the O caches and Gus meddles too much. They obviously had no confidence in our backs last yr; let’s see who emerges. But UGA just reloaded with 2 not one 5 stars. And they have that impressive freshman back. I don’t know why we don’t dominate in RB recruiting every yr. Not saying our recruiting is bad just saying we are slightly under UGA. Then of course the oline recruiting was a major disappointment. You guys know how important it is to dominate st the line and create the holes for the running gsme. So yes we did better than other schools. (But keep in mind the coaching carousel) To just say we did “fine” for me means we did OK. Compared to our major rivals, we fell behind. Let’s see how the season goes and hope we can be more dominant in next yr’s recruiting.
  15. We fell out of top 10 so not sure what all the poditive spin is about. Apparently coming in a fistant 3rd behind UGA and Bama is ok with everyone. And the dominating class by UGA is ok because we are going to beat them regardless. I think people have the head in the sand syndrome. Bama lost too many assistants and it showed in recruiting but UGAs dominance is scary. And the majority of AU fans don’t think it matters. Our oline is not going to be good next yr. Unless we score big in ‘19 with recruits that can have immediate impact, we are going to be hurting. RB is tbd. None of our backs were good enough to play much this yr. so not sure who plays next yr. We lost the last two games becuz we had to play a hurt KJ. Sorry but the “we are going to be fine” attitude and “state schools are going to do better” defeatest attitude bugs the c__p out of me. The class is good not great and we fell behind our two major rivals— fact.
