  1. Next OL Coach?

    We wouldn't want to have dull offseason, now would we?
  2. JB Grimes Returns to Auburn

    Didn't JB leave to go coach with his son? It seems as though, at the time, he needed/wanted a break from the grind of big-time college football. Does he still have the fire in his belly to coach at this level? I'm just speculating, but he may be a stop-gap for a year to allow Gus time to hire a good replacement OL coach. He may just be coming back as a favor to Gus.
  3. Next OL Coach?

    I think JB is an improvement over Hand, but does he still have the fire in his belly to put in the time needed to coach at this level?
  4. Herb Hand to Texas

    I think there is a valid criticism of the coaches in that they did not use the backup RBs more late in games that we were winning big to give them game experience. This put unnecessary burden on KJ and didn't prepare the backups as a contingency in the (almost inevitable) event that KJ got hurt. If we had had a reliable backup RB for the SECCG, would things have gone differently? Maybe not, but it just makes sense to get backups playing time (and rest the starters) when you have an opportunity to.
  5. Lashlee headed to SMU

    We'll be playing them next season. Makes for an interesting matchup between Gus and his former protégé.
  6. Will Jalen Hurts transfer from Bama?

    Here are the rules on transferring:
  7. Will Jalen Hurts transfer from Bama?

    I'm not certain, but I thought the releasing coach's consent was necessary in order to be able to receive a scholarship from the new school vs. having to pay his own way for a year. In both cases, the player still has to sit out a year. If that's the case, then the player would be more likely to transfer to an acceptable school where, even though he'd have to sit out a year, he wouldn't have to foot the bill. I'd love to have him at Auburn, but I don't see it happening. In any case, I expect that Hurts will compete for the starting job at least through the spring. He won't likely transfer out unless it's certain that he has lost the job. One game (even on the biggest stage) doesn't make Tua a lock to win the job. If Hurts is the competitor that I imagine he is, he won't give up without a fight.

    Saban would never release him to go to Auburn.

    Just keep winning and it'll all work out.
  10. Gus Malzahn at the AFCA Convention - Quotes

    Made me think of this scene from the movie Sling blade: Carl Childers: "There were these two fellars standin' on a bridge, a-goin' to the bathroom. One fellar said, "The water's cold" and the other fellar said, "The water's deep". I believe one fella come from Arkansas. Get it?"

    Superstition much?
  12. All Things Final Spots in the 2018 Class

    Gouraige and Petit-Frere are also in the mix.
  13. SEC schedule prediction

    If we get through SEC play with only four losses, I'll be ecstatic.

    I don't speak French, but doesn't his last name(s) translate to "Little-Brother"?
