  1. AU - Legitimate Final Four Contender?

    This seems overly pessimistic, or maybe I’m misreading what you’re saying. We’ll likely finish somewhere in the 2-4 seed range which would make us a favorite to reach the sweet 16. If that’s the case, we’d have to win two games we aren’t supposed to (assuming a 3 or 4 seed) to reach the Final Four. That’s certainly difficult, but far from impossible. If I had to handicap our odds of making the final four right now, I’d put us at around 5%. We’re a long shot, but also one of the dozen or so “contenders” imo.

    Really, both of them should look to come back if eligible. As much as I'd like to see him succeed, I don't see DP getting drafted at all. If he goes, he'll end up in the D-league or Europe (which actually might be an okay deal for him). AW will definitely be drafted if he goes, but if he's projected at the bottom of the 1st he'd probably make more money by waiting a year. With the rookie pay scale the way it is, he'd more that make more money in his rookie year as a top-10 pick than he would in his first 2 years as a 25+ pick. And I think he'd be quite capable of jumping into the top-10 with a real season of film.

    The evidence against him looks worse, at least of the stuff in the indictment that was released.
  4. A Quick Look at Stidham's Numbers

    My suspicion is that the reason you see this trend might be that the top teams are more often playing from ahead and running more at the end of the game, where as the weaker teams are playing from behind and have to abandon the run for the sake of time. I'd have to look at more specific breakdowns to confirm that though.
  5. A Quick Look at Stidham's Numbers

    It would and is. And it's not like the number of attempts has even been that low for Stidham. He's currently 7th in the SEC in attempts and 5th in yardage. As a team (Stidham 139/ Willis 5) we've still passed the ball a few more time a than Bama (Hurts 111/ Tua 28), and many more times than Georgia (Fromm 95/ Eason 7).

    I definitely see where you are coming from, but I could also see this becoming a situation like Hurts/Tagovailoa. It hard to take the keys away from someone who has had proven success, even if the other guy might look slightly better on paper of even the practice field.

    I'm not sure what you mean. Malik Willis, Justin Fields, Joey Gatewood, Bo Nix, Chosen Newton... we've got depth for years, Loof.
  8. 2018 5* QB Justin Fields

    It shouldn't barring it opening up substantial playing time for Willis this year, and him setting the world on fire -both of which seem unlikely.
  9. 2018 5* QB Justin Fields

    The amount of melt in this thread is mind boggling. Sure, if our WRs continue to fumble the ball 5 times a game moving forward, we probably won't win many games. But I don't think anyone would bet on that. Stidham averaged just shy of 10 yards per attempt yesterday, on a bunch of attempts. He's still got places he needs to work on, sure. But it's not like the rest of the SEC west is setting the world on fire right now. We've got a little time to get the offense firing on all cylinders. It doesn't look at least from the outside that any other JF contenders are pulling too far away in the meantime.
  10. 2017 3* QB Sam Ehlinger (Texas commit)

    Saw a headline today that some kid named Sam Ehlinger was starting for Texas today. Took me like 20 minutes to realize where I knew that name from until I remembered this doozy of a thread. Anyway, glad to see that things worked out for the kid.
  11. Woody Barrett lights it up in JUCO debut

    What an incredibly petty thread to start. It's kind of a shame that the day before the season starts, folks fancy their time best spent sarcastically dumping on our former players. Even more of a shame for mods to be doing it. Can't say that we're representing the Auburn family well here.
  12. 2018 4* RB Asa Martin Commits to AU!!!

    Hopefully this habit isn't as pervasive for him as it was for Roc.

    James Cook completely ruled us out at this point?
  14. 2018 5* QB Justin Fields

    I think it has more to do with demonstrating what sorts of offense the the team/coaches are capable of putting on the field. In our case, their is a knock on Gus that he can't make an offense function without a "running" QB. A Fields offense would probably get more designed runs than a Stidham offense, but I don't think that matters to much to JF. I think the what he wants to see out of us is that we can be successful throwing the ball more to assuage any fears that we'd try to turn him into Nick Marshall 2.0 were he to come here. For Georgia, I'd imagine that he'd want to see a more competent offense than what they put on the field last year and, if possible, one that features the QB and RBs in a more balanced manner. FSU likely doesn't have very much to prove, which is why a lot of national guys see them as being a good fit and have predicted that's where he'll end up. The silver lining in that though is that if he knows all that he needs to know about them and still hasn't committed, then there is likely a reason for it. That gives credence to the "he's ours to lose" theories.
  15. 2019 4* QB Bo Nix Commits to AU!!!

    In his defense though, I think he loses by much more without having done that. That was a terrifying and frustrating game if I recall correctly.
