    Carnell Williams new RB coach

    I like the hire. Those who don't seem to base their opinion on two assumptions. The first is that since Gus hired him and they believe Gus to be inept at everything, so he must be bad. That's their view and they are entitled to it, although I wish that they didn't feel the need to constantly remind the rest of us that that's their view. The other assumption is that since he has limited coaching and recruiting experience, he will fail at both. I have no idea how good a coach he will be, but he certainly knows more about playing running back at the highest level than anyone on this board and deserves the benefit of the doubt if for no other reason than he has been successful at everything he has attempted. While it's true that his ability to recruit is unknown, he has all the tools to be a great recruiter. He was recruited by every elite program in high school, and has a knowledge base there that will prove valuable. Every high school coach in the country know who Cadillac Williams is, which puts him ahead of almost every other first year coach on the recruiting trail - and his accomplishments on the field earn him respect from those same coaches. Any kid who Googles his name will see a highlight reel unlikely to be matched by any other recruiter. Parents will get to meet a genuinely great individual who is the best example of what Auburn can do for their son - great college and pro career, managed his money well, got his college degree, and is now coaching a game he loves at a school he loves. Please remember, all of the negatives people are throwing out about this hire are the same things that could have been said about Pat Sullivan when Pat Dye hired him in 1986, and all he did was revamp our offense, beat bama four straight years, and win three SEC titles. Would it really be the worst thing to support Cadillac and give him a chance?

    Asa Martin (update transferring)

    Isn't it time to stop talking about a player who is no longer at Auburn and move along?
  6. The first clue to all the talk about contract changes was where it originated, with a reporter who covers politics. The majority of the politicians in the state are bammers. Guess where the "info" probably came from? Almost every year a story which paints Auburn in a negative light surfaces during the end of recruiting, and they have all been false. Those who talk don't know, and those who know don't talk.
  7. Got my letter this morning. Should have been sent two weeks ago.

    Who replaces Chip?

    Silly me, I thought this was about a new OC. Can someone just make a topic for the gloom and doom we hate Gus posters to use so the rest of us could talk football.

    Josh Moon has some Malzahn info

    Gus didn't quit on his team and the team didn't quit on Gus. Give it a rest.

    Josh Moon has some Malzahn info

    Everyone seems to want a comment from Auburn on this situation, but when they said yesterday that Malzahn's "staus has not changed" since both Greene and Leath said he would be back next year and was Auburn's Coach "for the future" nobody wants to believe them. Maybe there is nothing to this this and Gus is just out recruiting and the president and AD are off doing their respective jobs. I would imagine if a rival wanted to hurt our recruiting, they would spread a rumor that Gus is being fired. If that's the case, then when he gets a statement from the AD that he will be back - maybe you start a rumor that his contract is being redone so it will be easier to fire him next year. I respect reporters, and know they have a difficult job at times. My oldest son covered sports in the Nashville area for years. I also remember the "solid" reports that Vince Dooley had accepted the Auburn job after the 1980 season, the reports that Pat Dye was going to Texas and revive the wishbone in the mid 80's. More recently we had all the "dirt" on Cam that wasn't and the "reliable" reports of Saban's wife house shopping in Austin. I don't know what's going on - and odds are you don't either. I'm just hoping recruits don't read this board. Relax, Auburn has survived worse rumors than these, and it will survive even if some of these rumors are true. Take a deep breath and watch a little basketball - it might just make you forget the rumor mill for an hour or two.

    Iron Bowl-what's your best memory?

    Probably been to twenty Iron Bowls. 1989 and 2013 were special, but the 1987 10-0 game may have been the best performance by a Pat Dye defense I witnessed. Bama block a punt and got the ball inside our ten, first and goal. I've been told by a couple of the players who were on the sidelines that the defensive coaches were running around yelling at the top of their lungs when Tracy Rocker walked over and said "Calm down, we got this". The defense went out and stuffed them three straight downs and broke up a fake field goal on fourth down. Auburn men playing Auburn football - doesn't get any better.
