  1. UCF RB, "AU in for Rude Awakening "

    UCF fans like to say he is the fastest player in the NCAA. His profile says he runs a 4.31... Javaris Davis was clocked at 4.24. UCF hasn't seen speed like Auburn has.
  2. Gus in final seven for Coach of the Year

    There's that, too. Thanks to sports agents, any coach that can last 3-4 year in the big leagues can retire and live off of investments.
  3. Pettway Out for Peach Bowl

    I think the game is still slowing down for him. His feet got ahead of him a few times this year. I expect to see a lot more of him next year. He appears to have the biggest upside of all of our backs.

    This. If you are a non-power 5 school with a great coach, enjoy him while he lasts... and if you are a great coach in a non-power 5 school, you better hope your skills translate when you start playing the big boys every week.

    Unfortunately, just like an undefeated UCF didn't have even a remote shot at the playoffs, the coach at UAB has no shot at a coach of the year award.
  6. Top AD candidates becoming clearer

    Maybe, but based on everything I've read, it didn't have anything to do with recruiting, and as soon as Auburn knew what was going on, they sat the players involved. There's not much else the NCAA could have asked them to do. Also, the FBI has positioned the University as the victim, which bodes well for Auburn. On top of all of that, there's the fact that Auburn is among a pretty large group of big name schools who are tied up in the same or similar messes, including every school with ties to Adidas, so if the NCAA comes down on one, it would have to come down on all, which would be unprecedented.
  7. On to UCF

    I'm with you. Seems odd. I'd think they would want to give their new staff a head start with the team. Maybe they are worried about installing new schemes. I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've seen a bowl team lose their entire staff before the game.
  8. Wiley and Purifoy

    Exactly. If someone in their immediate camps hadn't done something wrong, or at least considered it, they wouldn't be sitting. They have no one to blame but themselves or their families.

    At the same time, the current situation is getting less negative by the day. Title IX found that Meyers had inappropriate relationships, but was not creating a hostile environment. That one's basically over. Auburn is also doing all of the right things with the FBI investigation, for which they have already said Auburn the victim, not the perpetrator. All in all, it's not the dumpster fire that some seem to think. I think the bigger issue will be dealing with the boosters who are going to want to keep their hooks in deep, and may not get that with a new AD. If I was interviewing for the job, I'd be making certain that a Fulmer wasn't brewing.
  10. More on Corey Myers

    The Title X Office completed their investigation and found what a lot of us thought was the case. Corey had inappropriate relationships, but did not create a hostile environment for players. Clint quit when (and it is assumed because) Corey was banned from campus. http://www.espn.com/espnw/sports/article/21750766/auburn-softball-assistant-corey-myers-was-banned-school
  11. Wiley and Purifoy

    Here's how I see it. The FBI is investigating a crime. When they do that, ANY information that they pass on, which often isn't much, is shared under strict confidentiality, punishable by imprisonment, so Auburn, Bruce, etc aren't going to do any talking, even if they have something to share. Part of that investigation is similar to the Cam situation. The question paramount to us is who, if anyone, took money, and was the player aware of any monetary transactions? At this point, it appears that the FBI hasn't shared their findings on that front with AU. At the same time, we want to keep Wiley and Purifoy on the team, so we are allowing them the full level of access permitted by the NCAA without risking penalty after the fact, until we are certain that they didn't violate the rules. When the FBI gets around to telling us the full story, or at least that part, the call will be immediately made to either let them play or send them packing. It appears, however, that the FBI feels that information is important to their case, so they aren't sharing, because if Wiley and Purifoy start playing, then everyone knows their findings. So, if you want to be upset, you can be upset with the FBI, but also understand that this is one of A LOT of cases they are working on related to the corruption in basketball, so they aren't going to fast track the Person case just so our guys can play. Who you should really be upset with is Person and anyone who actually took money from him.
  12. Top AD candidates becoming clearer

    Hopefully they won't get a shot. Auburn is doing all of the right things to make sure that when the FBI is done and opens up the books, there is nothing for the NCAA to address. I know people are mad that Wiley and Purifoy aren't playing, but that is very much Auburn keeping the NCAA at bay.
  13. On to UCF

    I think it's more likely that UCF comes in half-hearted than Auburn does. Our guys will finally be healthy and have a chip on their shoulder from losing the SEC Championship. I also expect to see Chip take advantage of bowl practice to add some new wrinkles.
  14. On to UCF

    Record. They have literally played no one of any consequence. The only two ranked teams that they played were Memphis and South Florida. Memphis played no ranked teams except UCF and lost both times, badly the second time. South Florida also played no ranked teams but UCF and only lost by 7. UCF has not played a single team with a laudable pass rush.
  15. On to UCF

    Not sure how you got that from what I said, but to answer your question, they don't care about it because it's a "historic moment". They care because they want to win championships and beat the best. When there are no championships to be won, the motivation falls away. Look at 2014. Attitude took what could have been a championship season and killed it, because they lost one and had locker room squabbles. The current generation of college students is very feelings driven and if they feel slighted, they can be self destructive (see the softball mess). A coach walking away and taking his whole staff with him could trigger something like that. UCF could play lights out, or the could give the collective middle finger to the guy who'd rather be at Nebraska than stay with them. Actually a great example of what I'm talking about. There was no motivation for bama in that game because all they wanted was a championship, do they played half-hearted.
