  1. Valid point and one that many of us non-coaches need to address as well when retirement comes. For many of us, the job fills up much of our lives and often is a major part of our identity and self-worth. While we naturally think about having the financial aspects of retirement in order, psychologically preparing for a different, post-career, life deserves our attention as well. It sounds like Chiz has done some of that thinking in terms of having family take the central place in his life vice his career. From my happy retired guy perspective, he'll have all sorts of opportunities for an interesting and meaningful life, whether or not it involves football. Great decision by a really good guy.
  2. OT: Prayers needed

    Praying for your grandfather and you and your family's comfort and peace.
  3. Chris Todd's Story

    Great video. Nice to see Chris overcome adversity.
  4. Last AU player from your High School

    Most recent one I can think of is Stan White. Some earlier notables are Mike Kolen, Rusty Fuller, Andy Steele and Clyde Baumgartner. The ole alma mater closed in 1994.
  5. Rolling Toomers after bammer loss

    Should save it for AU wins...
  6. Notes on Malzahn's Auburn Offense (Merged)

    Nice to have you back after a short break, Stat. Thanks for the info.
  7. Opining all things Gus (Merged)

    We see it differently...that's fine.
  8. Opining all things Gus (Merged)

    I wanted AU to go for it on 4th down, but understand the potential to give OU a short field if it doesn't work. We still had a one score game and over a quarter remaining. It really doesn't matter which choice Gus made. If he went for it and failed, there'd be plenty of posters raking him over the coals for that choice...a no win situation.
  9. Calling 2 Timeouts To Score the Last TD

    Sure you try to score. No problem with it.
  10. Jeremy Johnson starter saturday

    I'm happy for JJ. I hope he has a great game. He's a good guy and good teammate.
  11. I think the Watch ESPN App replays the Skycam feed for one game each week. While there are some strange angles, it's crowd noise only with no announcers. Kind of fun to watch and listen.
  12. in the locker room before kickoff

    The inches we need are everywhere around us. They're in every break of the game, every minute, every second. On this team we fight for that inch.
  13. 2017 4* RB Kyshaun Bryan

    I was thinking the same thing, but I couldn't remember who the other kid was so I thought maybe I had just seen this one's video multiple times. Who is the other kid? His HUDL profile says St Thomas Aquinas HS in Ft Lauderdale, FL. I think Oregon being at the top of the page in the highlights has to do with him attending a Nike camp.
  14. The Jay Jacobs Resume

    Another item to include on the resume would be Women's Softball. Clint Myers is a great hire and last year's team played with lots of grit and spirit. If you haven't had the chance to see a game lately, give it a try this coming season...lots of fun.
  15. Steele's Defensive Staff

    Overall, IMO, a good job hiring the defensive staff. The staff has great recruiters, SEC/NFL/Auburn experience, enough carryover from the previous staff to smooth the transition for the players and a mix of young and veteran coaches with success in their resumes who could be at AU for a while to recruit and develop players to fit the scheme. I'll be interested to see how the chemistry among the staff develops since, like good team chemistry for the players, that can lead to great results. I'm optimistic AU will have a Top 10 recruiting class with our staff in place and am eager to head to Auburn to see the A Day game (as well as some Softball) in April.
