  1. Re-Watch the Game to temper your analysis

    @Malcolm_FleX48 so what is the likelihood that we turn it around offensively this season? Some of this talk is spring ball or during the (5 wasted weeks!!!) of preseason/ fall camp type of tinkering. How do you do that with another conference opponent coming up every seven days?
  2. Pregame Sights & Sounds - AU vs. Georgia Southern

    By the time y'all settle the discussion about the current locker room the construction of the new one will be complete. It will be in place for next season and will be at least 16,000 square feet.
  3. 2018 5* QB Justin Fields (Update 6/6/17)

    If they thought Hill was a factor in any way wouldn't uga have gone after him also? I love that we got him and believe he has a chance to be a great AU WR. It also can't hurt that he is apparently close with Fields. But you have to think uga would have been after him more if they felt that was a factor for Fields. I hope somebody can tell or show me otherwise.
  4. Finebaum: Something is different with Malzahn

    Couldn't get it to play. Probably for the best because it would have broken a seven year streak of not listening to that show (OD).
  5. The Myth of the Lopsided Rivalry

    If you want to make it even more interesting, look at the numbers BEFORE Bryant at bama. Bryant was something like 19-6 vs AU, but BEFORE and AFTER his reign we have more than held our own. During the Bryant years the attitude was kind of like the saban years in that the feeling was it is just this way because we are bama. Our program is just better. This is just who we are. The reality is pre-Bryant AU was as good or better. And we have held our own in the post-Bryant era, despite the fact that saban has been allowed to play by a different set of rules and pretty much own college football.
  6. Chip Lindsey

    Sorry for the bullet point approach but... The key will be our ability to execute in the passing game. If White starts that will mean an improved and healthy White. If Stidham starts it will mean he is better than an improved and healthy White, which was the best we had last year. You don't bring in Al Borges unless you are serious about turning the O over. He is there to fill an experience gap, which is really the only question with Lindsey - him vs SEC DCs. Lindsey had a good enough job that he would not have left if he thought he was simply going to be Rhett 2.0. This was a career move for him. If he thought he would just be the next guy to be forced to run Gus' offense but not really be able to coordinate it himself, I don't see any way he makes that move in a season where Gus has to win or likely has to move on. Clemson will tell us some things about this team but it is not a must win game by any means. A loss there doesn't take you out of any conference or national goal you may have set. What is a must is that this team improves during those first few weeks. The games before and after Clemson are absolutely must-win. Then, regardless of the Clemson outcome, you need to have improved enough to be prepared to handle what comes the rest of the way. The OL will be such a key in how this offense goes. Stidham can make the throws. And we will have have a couple WR step up as needed (NCM being one). We have to be able to block for the RBs and protect in the passing game. So much to like about this team if the OL comes together.
  7. Tolbert and Hastings

    One concern is that I was very inpressed by Hastings route running and quickness....until we played the teams that mattered. He didin't seem quite as quick once we played the teams with elite SEC talent. Is there reason to believe that has changed or are we fooling ourselves again and simply noticing a guy who is good enough to stand out in spring ball against our second string secondary? I suspect the answer is somewhere in between, as usual.
  8. Gus on 2017 staff

    Forgive me but... "stone has been decided"? Stone? who is the "you" in "you are done? JJ is done?
  9. Staff Changes

    I saw where somebody said JGT said it is not happening. If you got that from my post I did not communicate my understanding very well. That is not my understanding, at least as of late last night. It is just that what seemed almost certain to happen yesterday is now in question.
  10. Staff Changes

    I have seen nothing saying it is not happening, but I can tell you that overnight the guy I have been getting the CK info from is at least acknowledging that it may not happen. My thought is if FSU countered and took money off the table, he is in a decent position without moving, his family probably leans toward staying, he is loyal to Jimbo for giving him the opportunity, there is not a whole lot I see that would pull him our way besides the fact that he would be coming back to the place where he played.

    CK. Likely Thursday.
  12. Expectations by Cubelic

    This is proof that having played the game doesn't make your opnion anymore accurate than the next guy. There are bits of truth in there but you can't see them for all the ridiculous statements. Cole Cubelic needs to tell his brother to shut it down. Cole is good at what he does but his rep is going to take a hit if things like this keep getting posted as "what Cubelic said."
  13. Arkansas Game Report Card and Thoughts

    On the first down runs it seems like Gus is almost saying, "just run this in the name of 'pace' while I figure out what we want to really run." I believe he looks at it like a boxer hitting them with a body blow over and over each time until they soften up. What be does has usually worked over the years, so it is hard to question the guy too much. But you are handing your opponent your playbook on an all important down and making it where you have two downs to get 10 yds instead of three.
  14. Jay Jacobs

    Two things... The concert is not "faith affiliated" it is simply tied to the Chicken Salad Chick Foundation, which supports a nimber of causes. Some people are just looking for things to B about. Also, Golloway couldn't just accept the foring and move on. He has to think about his next move. This gives him an opportunity to hopefully "scare AU into some type of settlement and also allows him to point bavk to the fact that he didn't agree with the firing and he fought it. Te hope is this gives him something to tell his next potential employer more than just, "yeah, I had a misstep at Auburn"

    I believe he is referring to Luke Cothron.
