  1. 2018 5* QB Justin Fields (Update 6/6/17)

    I think regardless of what happens with Fields, we will be fine. Would I love to get him, absolutely, but we have Gatewood coming in next season and likely Bo Nix the following year. If Stidham returns (and he should), we would have Stidham # 1, Willis # 2, and Gatewood # 3 (if needed but likely redshirt) next season. 2019 would then look like this: Willis/Gatewood # 1 or # 2 and Bo Nix # 3 (if needed but likely redshirt). You have always got Devan Adams in your back pocket in case of emergency as well.

    "Not" should have been added at the end. "which is not worth much."

    I think it helps rather than hurts, but not substatially. If Stidham stays healthy and plays most of the snaps throughout the season, it will mean that Willis might get mop up duty only and therefore not allowing him to show much. If it is mop up only, it may be decided to use Adams and save Willis's redshirt. If that is the case, it will be a even competition between Willis and Fields for back up QB for next season right off the bat. Don't forget Gatewood also. With QB depth dwindling, any thought of using him at any other position could be out the window now (my preference anyway). If however, Stidham misses any action due to injury, Willis could come in and have a good showing, solidifying his position as # 2. It will be a completion of course and Fields or Gatewood could beat him outright during practice/camp. All that to say, its one less guy vying for time. Just my two cents, which is worth much.
  4. Bad loss for AU but...

    We must look a lot different against Mercer is where it starts. Next, better see a different looking offense as we start conference schedule. No reason why we should lose to anyone not named Bama, regardless of whether its at home or on the road. We have too much talent to beat by others. Happy with the defense, but the offense better get it together or they will be over at Gus's house helping him load the U-Haul truck very soon.
  5. Auburn vs. Clemson score prediction

    I have a good feeling about his game. I think JS has a better game, having gotten that first one under his belt and understanding where he needs to improve. Having KP and KD back will also help. I think a heavy dose of Pettway and JS feeling more comfortable and hitting his targets will result in a much better looking offense. Defense looked very good. They will still look good this game but will give up around 17 points. It will not be a high scoring game because both defenses are good. I think AU comes out on top, 24-17 and that begins the ball rolling down hill for AU for the rest of the season. We only get better game by game. This will be a huge step and a monumental confidence boost for the team.

    I think things are already leaning in our favor. Things like this (his friends joining the fold) only strengthen our chances. I like how all of our commits are always in his ear. Could be the case with Georgia and FSU commits also, don't know. I think after the Clemson game, he will make his decision known. If we are humming on offense, I think he is ours.
  7. 2018 5* QB Justin Fields (Update 6/6/17)

    That's a good point. For consistent success over the next several years, I hope he does indeed stay for two years. If he does not, we could very well take a dip for a year until younger QB's get more experience and feel comfortable running the offense.

    Thanks Ellitor. Will be interesting to see how this all unfolds. Best case would be that Stidham stays two seasons and we still get Fields but I know that may be asking alot. Either way, we will be fine.
  9. 2018 5* QB Justin Fields (Update 6/6/17)

    Quick question.... If Jarrett plays one season and leaves, how does that leave us for next season at QB? Would White still leave for greener pastures? Even if we got Fields, would Fields or Willis be ready? They could likely do the job but how well? I know that Gatewood will probably be in the fold but he would likely redshirt if staying at the QB position. If Jarrett has a great year, do you think he goes in the draft? I would think so, but who knows. Not concerned, just wondering your thoughts.
  10. 2018 5* QB Justin Fields (Update 6/6/17)

    Thanks Ellitor. We will be coming stateside next fall and I hope to attend my first Auburn football game or two. Been a fan since Bo's freshman year and have never been to a game. Will be bringing my teenage daughter to the games as well so we can visit the campus. She could be a future Tiger soon.
  11. 2018 5* QB Justin Fields (Update 6/6/17)

    What an awesome week for AU fans. Things are looking good heading into practice. Do we expect anyone else to jump on board this week or will things likely slow down for awhile? Either way, like what I am hearing both from the coaches, media and fans regarding the upcoming season and how recruiting is going. Can't wait for the season to start.
  12. 2018 5* QB Justin Fields (Update 6/6/17)

    Let's go ahead and add Fields, Jackson, and Hill this week also.

    Guess we got the answer. Welcome Mr. Monday.
  14. Who Do You Think We'll Close With?

    We have had a good class so far. I like the number of early enrollees that will be in spring training. We got the QB we desperately needed and hopefully a revamped offense. Defense will be almost as good in my opinion. Yes, we lost Lawson and Monty but I think the other guys will step up, not to mention we add some guys that sit out last year or were redshirts (James, Dean, and Coe come to mind). The D will get better as the season progresses. The implementation of the TE in the offense and an actual passing attack to go along with the more seasoned KJ and KP is exciting. Having Legatron back is a bonus, as he could have gone to the NFL. Also Kozan, Smith, and James back on the OL should keep our QB protection solid. Can't wait to see our WR's get lots of catches next year. Must maximize that talent in the position. Having said that, I feel we have added the recruits that we needed to fill out the depth chart. Some will play this year, while some will redshirt. I would like us to close with Taylor, Bryant, and Benton and be done, however I do not see that happening. If we get two of the three, I think that would be a solid finish. Regardless, I like our class even if it is not one of the top classes. We filled our needs. What is more important than recruiting this year, is getting our offense deadly once again and continuing to get even better on defense. If we do those things, we can be really excited about next season.
