    Men vs Xavier

    I actually played at and graduated from Auburn. You did neither obviously.

    2019 Baseball Recruiting Thread

    Speas was committed to MSU and Butch brought him over. He was never going to make it on any college campus...was touching 96 in high school.

    Arky DB’s suspended

    Sounds like it's "big picture" deal, I think you have to include the fact they got beat 52-6 by MSU after the event in question. Arkansas defensive coordinator John Chavis said he was very disappointed in the two players. "Listen, when you start looking at it, it's about perception, and even though that was not acceptable, it's really perception," Chavis said. "Here we are fighting to develop the kind of culture where you're going to have a winning attitude by every guy that walks on that field -- and again, I'm not questioning their character -- but the perception was not very good, and it had to be addressed and our head coach has handled that. I'm with him 100 percent."

    When to Use Case in Point What does case in point mean? Case in point is an idiom that means an example that supports one’s argument. Merriam-Webster first recorded its use 1647, and it has been a popular expression ever since.

    That's analytical gold right there. You just can't get that level of quality anywhere but AUF.

    Bowl Game Projection [update]

    Yep, I sat there in Tampa that day and two years later in New Orleans wondering how in the world we could look so poorly prepared to play after a month of prep. But sitting in Legion Field the year between those two was really inspiring.... Bowl season feels the way March madness used to feel, just no joy. Maybe Bruce motivates Greene to do something about that.

    Evaluate the Progress of the Offensive Line

    You could not be more right. Reese Dismukes was a pretty good player with an elite temperment for football and most especially for the offensive line. He absolutely intended to destroy the guys lined up across from him. The best example ever is Olin Kruetz and Fred Miller of the Chicago Bears, I want guys like that on our O line....

    The future is bright!!

    With all due respect, I think the question has to be you believe the basis for the statement every year? '13 - The groundwork is laid; we'll work extremely hard.... '14 - We'll rebound.... '15 - Playing a good team in the bowl game; a lot of young guys that will come back, recruiting going well; close losses.... '16 - Banged up, but young and talented.... '17 - Stable program.... '18 - Opportunity to finish strong.... I understand there is some room for "coachspeak" but Gus is making $7 Million per year and doesn't seem to have a comprehensive strategic plan that can be articulated to the "shareholders". Something of significance just has to change and bringing in a different OC that he can control will never be enough. Quite frankly I think there should be some question as to whether he's "on the spectrum" That first question is a doozy - Do your family members lovingly refer to you as the “eccentric professor” of the family, even though you don’t work anywhere near academia? *

    Zach Smith twitter war with Hermann

    This thing has gone from bad to worse...McMurphy now reporting a story about Z Smith using an ugly slur with a former player (Trevon Grimes). And about a dozen current Buckeyes saying it didn't happen. Man I hate the internet unless I'm trying to save money on some repair around the house with a Youtube video.

    Monday or Tuesday after the IB

    I'd swap HC's with Oregon tomorrow. That would certainly solve our OL problem.

    Monday or Tuesday after the IB

    Marcello directly contradicts himself and I'm absolutely certain he wasn't in the room. Jacobs is clearly suffering from severe CTE and has a well defined history of making stupid decisions relative to contracts (see: Gene Chizik buy-out). Leath has a PhD, is the University Presdent and had been on the job less than one entire football season. It's pretty clear who I think botched this.... I will contend that the biggest idiot in the history of Auburn athletics has been removed from the picture, the contract still exists regardless of who agreed to it on Auburn's behalf and Gus will still be the coach on Auburn's sideline at AT&T Stadium come August 31st 2019. There is only one part of that that makes me feel better about the future of Auburn football and it has everything to do with the guy who is drawing a paycheck from the University of Florida. JABA.

    That's funny right there....

    Zach Smith twitter war with Hermann

    Looking like much of this is fallout from Z Smith going into Austin and getting a big time receiver recruit out of the Longhorns front yard. Turns out the unnamed source for all the texts that helped undo Smith was Herman and his wife (which shouldn’t have been too difficult to figure out). The more I see of Herman, the less I like him. Not sure there was ever much to like about Smith. Reminds one of the old adage “Keep your friends close and your enemies closer”.

    I sincerely hope Courtney Smith has adequate protection, I would suspect her ex-husband is going to release his rage somewhere.
