  1. He was quick to the sideline his first couple of years. He would drive me insane by running OOB anytime a defender got within 5 yds of him. Preserving the small frame, I understand, but as I recall, Bo got in his face in 2010 and told him to put his foot in the ground and get upfield more. The results were spectacular.
  2. YoutubeTV here. Like it so far but haven’t been through a football season yet. Hefty delay vs OTA which May come into play when texting about Gus’ &#%! play-calling this season.
  3. I’m putting in my application in now for a job, any job, at Auburn. Then I’ll sit back and wait to get showered with cash upon my firing....er....resignation. What buffoons.
  4. A year in the weight room and they’ll be fine. Rather start them on the lean side and put the right kind of bulk on them rather than starting off chunky and having to burn it off.
  5. Ol’ “3 axe-handle” Charlie!
  6. Frost looked like Adonis but hit like Athena.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.

  10. 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.
  11. That’s not close to a championship level CB list.
  12. Beat Bama = Hammer comin’ Down
  13. AU Basketball under Bruce Pearl: Unrestrained excitement and hope for the future AU Football under Gus Malzahn: General malaise
  14. 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!
