  1. Report: Malzhan staying

    I think this was the best thing to do. Having to start over sometimes sets the program back a few years. We are moving in the right direction, even if we get frustrated at Gus from time to time. Let's hope he understands the expectations and have our guys prepared for every game, which means games 1-3, not just 4-13. No coasting with a lead, no interfering with play calling, none of the mess that had him on the hot seat with our fan base this year. It all starts now, prep for the bowl game, recruiting, and spring prep for next season. Time to earn that money. Lock Steele and Lindsey down for a longer tenure and let's roll. And please, fix the special team issues, it's embarrassing.
  2. 2018 4* QB Joey Gatewood (Auburn 12/5/15)

    Agree 100%. I like the potential, but once he learns the offense and adapts to the speed of the SEC, he should be a good one. I'm thinking probably not a Cam talent but more of a Dak Prescott type. Just my thoughts. Chip Lindsey is just what he needs.
  3. Kerryon Johnson updates

    Let's hope it doesn't involve personal issues, otherwise he will not be back this season and will likely not be on the team next season. We could do well without him, but we have all seen what he is capable of when healthy. To have both KJ (if he choses to return for senior year) and KP back for next year with a stronger, more confident!!
  4. Kerryon Johnson updates

    Well, if we can get by Georgia, both KJ and KP should be healthy and ready to go by Jan. 1. That would be great, given we haven't had them both available at the same time all seasons. Teams in the playoffs would have to game plan for both of them. With our passing game getting better and better and having both studs in the backfield with this defense........scary!!!!
  5. Steele

    STEELE CURTAIN DEFENSE.....for real!!!
  6. So who wants to keep him now?

    I would give him one more year if we lose to Alabama in a close game. No raise for next year and see if we have a similar outcome next season record wise. If so, look at extension. Need to be mentioned concerning winning the SEC West and making the CFP on a regular basis. He has to win 9 games a year consistently to keep his job. With our talent, there are a lot of coaches that could do that. Only discuss contract extension if he beats Bama and the Dawgs and makes it to the playoffs.
  7. What is the key to an IB win?

    We must create a pocket for JS to pass. When he gets happy feet, nothing good happens. WR have to get open. Play calling like Georgia game. Defense, we have to own the line of scrimmage and stuff the run. Keep Hurts contained so that he can not scramble for 10+ yards. Secondary can not get burned over the middle. Turn your head and look for the ball instead of getting pass interference calls. Carlson has to kick ball out of bounds on kick offs. No turnovers on offense. Crowd has to be crazy!!!
  8. 11am Kick

  9. Notes going into Week #6

    I agree completely. He and Barrett especially should get a bulk of the carries. Should sit Pettway for this game and limit KJ unless absolutely necessary. My only concern with Miller and Barrett is hanging on to the football. This is their big chance to shine. Have to take care of the football.

    11:00pm game time for me here in Indonesia.
  11. 2018 5* QB Justin Fields

    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.
  12. 2018 5* QB Justin Fields

    "Not" should have been added at the end. "which is not worth much."
  13. 2018 5* QB Justin Fields

    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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
