  1. KN CB to AU last night
  2. My high school baseball coach, Coach Bounds, named his son Justin. Justin Bounds. No lie.
  3. Who did we miss on?
  4. Source aufamily?? By James Crepea | Email the author | Follow on Twitter on January 20, 2017 at 7:15 PM, updated January 20, 2017 at 7:16 PM Auburn's offensive coordinator search, nearing the end of its ninth day, is hinging on a high stakes showdown over power and control between coach Gus Malzahn and those with influence over the program, a source told Malzahn, who enters a pivotal fifth season leading the program, had a short list of candidates to succeed Rhett Lashlee, who left for the same position at UConn on Jan. 11. That short list included former Baylor offensive coordinator Kendal Briles and Arizona State offensive coordinator Chip Lindsey and North Carolina State offensive coordinator Eliah Drinkwitz, both of who have worked under Malzahn. also reported Lindsey and Drinkwitz were among Malzahn's preferred candidates. Ads by ZINC A source indicated those candidates did not receive a favorable reaction from people with influence over the program, who felt Briles, now at Florida Atlantic, lacks experience and Lindsey and Drinkwitz, while familiar with Malzahn's offense were also too close to him. A list of preferred candidates was provided to Malzahn by athletic director Jay Jacobs, the source said, which was composed of comparatively more experienced coaches, including the Texas A&M's Noel Mazzone, who reportedly went from the possible lead candidate to staying in College Station in a matter of hours on Thursday. Attempts to reach Jacobs, who was at the NCAA convention in Nashville this week, have been unsuccessful. With Oklahoma State offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich pulling his name from consideration, Mazzone staying put, former Oregon coach Mark Helfrich preferring to wait for a head coaching opportunity, Jake Spavital landing at West Virginia and several other prominent offensive coordinators rumored to have been at least considered, if not offered the job, where Auburn goes next is unclear. Malzahn is understandably comfortable with Lindsey, a former head coach at multiple Alabama high schools and analyst at Auburn in 2013, and Drinkwitz, his running backs coach at Arkansas State in 2012 and offensive coordinator at Boise State in 2015 and NC State last season. Though with Auburn experiencing offensive struggles in 2015 and a 1-3 finish to 2016, the program's powerbrokers wanting the new hire to offer a different perspective is not irrational either. With less than 12 days to national signing day, the critical hire could down to a test of wills.
  5. Punter - Carlson the senior to reprise his dual kicking & punting role from his freshman year to demonstrate that ability prior to the NFL draft
  6. Stat, great article as always. Lets hope that AU passes more in the Red Zone, more on first down, and more period! One minor nitpick with the article...."At the snap, Auburn will execute a "rub route" with Stevens walling of the defender responsible for covering Ryan Davis." Don't you mean Slayton vice Stevens?
  7. I really like what you are saying 23
  8. this is bad news, we are screwed
  9. A. Set the tone that their defensive ends cant rush the passer at will B. Set the tone that our QB will run the ball C. AUsome pair of Offensive Guards A + B + C = Sean White QB Draw for 20 yards
  10. MMW: AU will have 5 players drafted in the first 3 rounds of the next NFL draft MMW: AU will be in the SEC top 3 rushing and SEC top 6 passing. MMW: AU will lead the SEC in scoring and total defense. MMW: AU players will win both the SEC offensive and defense freshman of the year MMW: Prior to the start of the 2017 season, AU will extend Gus's contract MMW: Les Miles will "resign" prior to lower tier bowl game MMW: NCAA will get a new president; new president will promptly initiate investigation of bammer that results in probation MMW: UA starts more QBs during season than AU
  11. Well...we lose a point on the all- name team, but trading our back up to the backup grad transfer defensive lineman (Gimel President) for a multi-year starting grad transfer LB (T.J. Neal) is sure to be a win for AU. WDE
  12. Well. If the coaches figured out that a player is probably never going to be significant contributor, maybe they decided to encumbered the 85 limit for 4 years vice 5.
  13. It was Duke's fault for failing to keep Duke in order. Nobody else.
  14. Interesting confluence. I am at the Orlando airport heading to TAMU game via a night in Houston. Got a master's degree at TAMU 25 years ago and this will be my first time back. WDE Be careful about going to ESPN zone at Disney wide world of sports to watch a game. They charge a cover to get in complex and did not have sec network when I went last year
