  1. Exactly. And if you buy into that it’s harder to recruit to auburn anyway because it’s not a “flagship” school, then all the more reason taking the warm, fuzzy approach is going to get trounced. You’ve gotta have a bad-A at the helm to keep up.
  2. You’re going to have up and down seasons over and over until you can get on top of the recruiting game. That’s happens to the majority of schools. Don’t have the horses to sustain injuries and graduation and you end up with a poor season. Clemson didn’t start winning big and then started recruiting. They were a middling ACC school and were signing A-list QBs and other blue-chippers. Oh, and developing them. Now they’re in the reload position.

  4. Murphy says he preferred later playing time at CU versus early playing time promised at AU. Then we lose top recruits due to early playing time promised elsewhere. Then we lose recruits due to our poor play. Then we lose recruits to schools whose poor play shows that they need help. And so on..... see a pattern? Bottom line, recruiters recruit. Your play on the field can be good, bad, mediocre, and you can still recruit if you have a vision to sell. Hoping for all the stars to align is a strategy to get your butt handed to you over and over while the big dogs take what they want. Hell we were in 2 out of 4 NC games and never really took advantage of it. What other performance metric do you need to hit? I’m ready for this slow, grinding “Bus” wreck to end before we’re relegated to Moo St or USCe status in the conference. AU needs a coach who can man-up on the trail and get the studs in-house so we can compete. Gus ain’t cutting it anymore. Unless you enjoy the occasional 3* diamonds in the rough story.
  5. That’s not close to a championship level CB list.
  6. Beat Bama = Hammer comin’ Down
  7. AU Basketball under Bruce Pearl: Unrestrained excitement and hope for the future AU Football under Gus Malzahn: General malaise
  8. I’m for whatever wins and WE BEAT THEM at their own game but got robbed. They forced us to be boring but we were so good we were able overcome. Just shows what a great team and coach we have. We will be back!
  9. Not insignificant but we’re so far beyond worrying about what those people are doing. We now play among the elites and I think we will stay there as long as Bruce is our coach. Keep the man, whatever it takes. WDE!
  10. AU missed plays, UVA missed plays - that’s basketball. A ref missing a fundamental call at the very end of a final 4 game is inexcusable. Basic call. Guy should be sent down to calling middle school ball.
  11. Not going back to re-read all the previous posts so this may be repetitive....yes, Samir fouled Guy and he was stone cold on the line. But the missed called on the double dribble was beyond horrendous. That call gets made in youth league and I know because I coached tons of youth league basketball. This is not a case of “oh well, each side gets their share of calls”. This was as fundamental as putting the ball under your arm and running down the court with it. It’s an unmissable call. In open court. Missed calls like that decide championships between evenly matched teams. Unacceptable.
  12. Complete BS. You cannot dribbled the ball off your leg and pick it up with two hands and start dribbling again. Should’ve been our ball should’ve been our game
  13. Coach PFD would approve that statement.
  14. That Huntsville station is all Bammer all the time. They Don’t even attempt to be unbiased. But rest assured, this is the GOAT coaching hire.
