  1. +1 (Man, I have been wanting to make that post or "This" for so long.....)
  2. Because he's underrated......sounds smartass but also true.
  3. I'm as conservative as anyone and love our current unis. The blue-on-blue-on-blue looks pretty cool I think and it wouldn't hurt my feelings to see us branch out like that a little bit. Nothing like the gosh-awful Oregon or Boise St. or that UGA abortion from the game they had against Boise St. a few years ago though, please.
  4. You give them more credit than I do. Fair enough.
  5. Would I take a natty every 5 years if it meant misery, ie 2012, mixed in? Hell yeah, especially after living my first 40+ years of AU existence waiting for that first one. Is it realistic to think that would happen if we're puking up a 2012 every 5 years? Hell no, which is what I think most are saying while understanding the premise of the "OP".
  6. We have been poor fundamentally for several years on D- poor angles, bad tackling, etc. Cant blame the HUNH for that although it's been worrisome to see it carryover from coordinator to coordinator. I'm really hoping Muschamp has us fielding a fundamentally sound defense that is capable of getting off the field when it needs to (and not because the other team is kicking a PAT).
  7. Miller will be a good one. Even with KJ there Miller was often the best player on the field when MA was playing past couple of years
  8. Davis is obviously very talented. All of this should lead us to tell him "We'd love to have you but understand your circumstances so we aren't going to spend a lot of time recruiting you. Good luck to you." Can't do that with many but a Bammer legacy? No shame in admitting that on some you have no chance....
  9. Sounds great. Glad Mr. McClain is on board. Thanks!
  10. Very excited about McClain. Curious if this is thought to be a reflection on our chances for Davis or NC-M.....?
  11. After the drama, would like to see the staf strongly discourage attendance from those like Wilson and Price (especially Wilson). JMO.
  12. Not sure about the Maxwell list but I remember Jacob Coker being mentioned as a Heisman candidate last year-LMAO. That said, I think Jeremy and Duke will both do great things this year.
  13. If we're going to claim one national championship that we haven't before now 1983 should be it. That team was truly robbed of the championship they earned on the field under the system in place at the time. If you don't believe that...go look at the schedule they played.
  14. If someone guaranteed this today I'd be fine shutting recruiting down and focusing all energy on winning a Natty.
  15. Kip Adams also CBd both to AU today, as well as Boykin. what does cb mean? "Crystal-balled"
  16. The man stays on message. Nobody can say otherwise. I'll change my tune a bit if or when we have a linebacker that performs well enough to get as much as a second team all-SEC selection. Even an honorable mention or "also ran" would be nice, it's been several years since we've had one of those. "Did Toney leave the team?" "Frost and McKinzey suck." To add on to your tune metaphor, if you were in a church choir you'd just keep singing the same hymn no matter what everybody else was singing :)/> Oh, no. I'd change my tune as soon as the hymn changed, just as I'll change this tune as soon as the LB situation improves. In the meantime, I did answer the OP's question. Where's my credit for that??? :)/> I vote that everyone pitch in to buy a Christmas present for Mikey....a dead horse so that he can beat it anytime he wants :-\/> Use the money to buy AU some linebackers, I already have a horse graveyard. Five are buried there, each with its own marker. One of my current rides is a 19 year-old so it probably won't be too many more years before I have another dead horse to bury. I hope your LB fund comes through with some LB's before Ol' Red plays out! I'd do it but, if I'm not mistaken, Auburn could potentially get in trouble for that.

  18. Is she a Bowden? Seems he was tied to the Bowden clan by marriage but I may be wrong. If she is that would increase the likelihood of the rumors being true. Still, an ugly situation, true or not.
  19. No it wasn't. After he decommittmented, he said Auburn was still number one. So this picture isn't that surprising. Just saying, he may end up being the Darrell Williams of last year if he never gets a commitable offer from Bama. sub·se·quent adjective coming after something in time; following. synonyms: following, ensuing, succeeding, later, future, coming, to come, next Now that one made me laugh. Thanks.! I'm glad someone else posted that besides me so I wouldn't look like the grammar police, lol.
  20. I'm assuming this was posted subsequent to his "decommitment"........?
  21. Damn. We are getting our ass handed to us in DL recruiting right now. Of course, it's June 2015 and they don't sign until February 2016 for goodness sake.
  22. I'll see your Loeffler and raise you a Tony Franklin. I'll see you those two and raise you a Brian Van Gorder, "The savior of the defense". Loeffler, in particular, had little to work with. Van Gorder had the most talented, experienced and deepest unit on the team and did nothing but take them backwards. I would not put Brian Van Gorder on this list or Tony Franklin. Chiz had Wayne Bolt sit in on the D meetings and Bolt had as much say on how the D would scheme than Brian. Franklin had the freight line guy Nall dictating the way the O would look. Agree with this. Loeffler, granted, had severe limitations at qb but looking at the offensive stats and watching the offense performance in the two years since he left I don't believe the "little to work with ". BVG did not do a good job but there's nothing to suggest that he made them a lot worse- the D was bad before he go there and has been bad since. Do you think a QB named Nick Marshall might have had a little something to do with the past two year's stats? Loeffler didn't have Nick Marshall, and he certainly didn't have a head coach that wanted an explosive offense. Loeffler's Record: 2012 - Auburn YPG: Rank 118th, YPG 305 PPG: Rank 114th, PPG 18.7 2013 - Virginia Tech YPG: Rank 103rd, YPG 356 PPG: Rank 101st, PPG 22.5 2014 - Virginia Tech YPG: Rank 99th, YPG 365 PPG: Rank 94th, PPG 24.1 The good news, Loeffler's offense is improving. The bad news is, at this rate, it will take him 15-20 years for him to field a Top-10 offense. Right. I think I pointed out the qb part, ie Nick Marshall. To suggest there wasn't significant talent otherwise is wrong. Let's face it- Loeffler, Van Gorder, and everything else 2012 was a dumpster fire. I don't think anybody is saying it wasn't.
