    High everyone, With this special Herb in my Hand, I reflect on the "Plains" facts......... I hope you don't find the following Lines Offensive. Hand, Grimes or any other OL coach would get elite recruits if they were at UA because they would have the REC "process" behind them. Every coach at UA is considered an elite recruiter until they go somewhere else and every coach they hire instantly becomes an elite recruiter when they get there. Comparing other coaches to that staff is comparing rotting apples to oranges. Lashley was getting Gatewood to Auburn, but he wouldn't get him to UConn, despite the "relationship" that he built. It's not that he forgot how to recruit, just that the place he was representing changed. Also, Auburn has managed to convince quite a few excellent OL to enroll at our school over the years, even though it seems our OL coaches were not "great recruiters"! Some even managed to make it to the NFL, in spite of our OL coaching deficiencies. And despite the awful OL this year, we still had the number one rusher in the SEC, again. He also managed to be named offensive POY. Amazing. Thanks for listening! Enjoy your Day! MaryJane Feelinhigh
  2. War Eagle! Here’s hoping our coaches and all the recruiting services know more than the fans, just this one time!
  3. 2019 4* QB Bo Nix Commits to AU!!!

    He is number one in my book, if that matters to you!
  4. 2019 4* QB Bo Nix Commits to AU!!!

    The second coming of BO! Justyn time for all the Stud wide receivers to get (or stay) on board and for all the offensive lineman that want to protect the future Auburn superstar to join the family! WDE!
  5. BO knows Auburn football! Its time to send the message to wide receivers near and far, you need to get on board the BoExpress!
  6. Hopefully, he wasn't referring to AU and Ross.
  7. So Saban tells recruit he will play LB as freshman, kid signs, and ends up riding the pine and red-shirting and sees Saban bring in 3 more 5* LB recruits and he tells them the same thing. Saban tells kid you aren't good enough to start but you will make a great addition to our scout team. Kid can now "transfer" to a school not on Saban's veto list and has to sit out a second year at new school or ride the pines a second year at bama hoping to play on special teams as junior or senior. Yeah, I know the "system" works great for coaches making $7-10M a year and the fans like it because there is "continuity", but not too sure it is in the best interest of the kids.
  8. Sooo, why shouldn't they be able to look for something better? Because it might be hard on the coaches??
  9. Schools would still be limited by the 25 scholarship per year, so I don't think it would be willy or nilly. Students would have to be in good scholastic standing with current school and meet new school academic standard too. It would make sense to allow the transfer during the same early signing period and JUCO signing period, but I don't know what has been proposed.
  10. A lot of the problems with a kid signing and then finding that a coordinator or HC has changed jobs would be fixed if the student-athlete was allowed to transfer to another school without having to sit out a year as long as he is in good scholastic standing. I believe this is being considered and hope it passes because it would give the players some reasonable options if things don't turn out the way the coaches promised they would.
  11. All Things Final Spots in the 2018 Class

    Believe it or not, Stanford does have academic limits to what kind of players it can sign.
  12. North Carolina

    I read that of the 19 students enrolled in the non-existent class that gave out free grades, 18 were NC football players and 1 was a former NC football player. The professor is being charged with taking money ($12,000) and not producing a service.
  13. UNC avoids major sanctions

    Blue Blood - BB Cash Cow - no way NCAA was going to do anything to them. UNC threw their entire academic standard under the bus, saying they pass out free grades to all their students. What is a UNC diploma worth these days? Apparently not much. On the other hand, watch OM get slammed because they are a low grade, non-essential team. Even though they were doing the same thing Bama has been doing for years and everyone just looks the other way. College athletics is in a sad state of affairs.
  14. 2018 5* QB Justin Fields

    Reading between the lines, but I don't think JF wants any part of competing with Joey Gatewood after seeing the talent that Joey is showing this season. Joey, on the other hand, has no fear of competing with JF or anyone else and has said so repeatedly. JF will undoubtedly go to UGA because that is where his mommy wants him to go, but he will sit on the bench for a year before transferring. He can only hope UGA doesn't burn his RS year before he figures out he is not going to ever start at uga.

    Rumor is that Eason will be transferring back to west coast. UGA has moved on to State Farm.
