  1. One mitigating factor

    And what will be Gus' mitigating factor if he keeps his job next year? My linemen are young... when all his senior OL graduates?
  2. One mitigating factor

    To this I will simply reiterate 17 first down calls after taking a 20 point lead, 17 run calls.
  3. Up 20-0, here's the play chart

    So 8-4 and being the #3 team in the state seniors winless against major rivals and Gus gets to keep his multi million dollar job!?! Pathetic.
  4. Are you saying but not saying... Gus being Gus?
  5. I think we missed some opportunities to allow a real Quarterback to handle the ball in the Red Zone against Missouri. I am not a football coach but my observation is this. Lets say we are down by more than 3 and need a touchdown to win or tie. Lets further speculate that we have no timeouts and less than a minute on the clock. Would you not think we need a real QB taking the snaps to throw the ball for a touchdown? A KJ scored three times from the wildcat and those were three chances that JS missed to get comfortable with the red zone offense. lso, I am sure a 5* QB considering coming to Auburn does not like seeing the ball taken out of the QB's hands for a wildcat play when we get into the red zone.
  6. 2019 PK Cory Munson @ Northside Warner Robbins I went to Ware County Ga vs. North Side Warner Robbins game Friday night and witnessed a show by a PK. If this guy is not the top 3 PK in the country for 2019 I will be shocked. He hit FGs of 51, 44 and 49 yards. The one from 51 would of been good from 60. During half time I watched him hit 5 of 6 with the ball teed up on the 50 yard line. This was a show. I have no idea if Auburn has any interest in this guy but wow. Northside won 23-14. Ware has a verbal commits to NC State, South Carolina and App. State.
  7. ***AU vs. Missouri -- Game Thread***

    step it up Defense!
  8. The SEC

    You have a call waiting at T-Town Mensware. I think it might be about a set of rims.
  9. The SEC

    No holding was called on this post....
  10. I got off the Gus Bus after Mercer.

    We have good players that is not my argument, nor would I ever root against Auburn. I hope Gus turns this around, I just don't think he is capable of doing so.
  11. I got off the Gus Bus after Mercer.

    I have three nickles years on you and I have seen what Auburn Football could be like during the CTT years before he decided to go duck hunting. I guess I have higher expectations than to every handful of years beating Bama.
  12. I got off the Gus Bus after Mercer.

    Do not get me wrong. I am still watching and rooting for a win but one of the definitions of insanity is to do things over and over again the same way and hoping for different results.
  13. First let me say I bleed orange and blue. I remember the Barfield years. I witnessed a team that was just plain going through the motions. They were uninspired. I almost got off the Gus bus with the whirly bird and the hydra headed QB at Clemson last year. Let me restate this before I go on. Gus as HC at Auburn is 2-2 vs LSU, 1-3 vs Georgia and 1-3 vs Alabama. We are one miracle play and one last second heads up coaching call from Gus being 2-10 versus our biggest rivals. The very best I can see us finishing the regular season is 9-3. Winning only one game verses our three biggest rivals. Saying this I will be extremely happy to eat crow if Gus proves me wrong. I have had enough. I lived through the time when it was an accomplishment to win enough just to go to a bowl game. I expect a bit better. My question to those that are still on the Gus Bus is how many of those 9-3 seasons with two losses versus LSU, Georgia or Alabama are you ready to settle for?
  14. Who is holding Gus to the fire?

    Or one Nick Marshall away from not having been in the National Championship game as a head coach. Its not the X's and the O's but the Jimmy's and the Joe's.
