  1. Yep, the coach could always double back through Lubbock on the way Home.
  2. I am OK with it if we get by Clemson. But yes, as always I prefer to crash the party lie we did 2010 and 2013. If we can play and consistently live up to the hype, then I may get used to it.
  3. Amen and WDE!!
  4. True...sadly true.
  5. Where there's a way there's the REC. Some of these poor kids, and some are literally poor, cannot see beyond the promises. Is anyone here as old as I am that remember the days before scholarship limits? Promises for most of these kids are made for the same reason. Bryant used to recruit and sign enough players to field 2 teams at any other university, just to keep them away from Auburn and other schools. Most never saw any action, except for pacing the sidelines at LegionField.
  6. What an embarrassing day for some of these players.
  7. Thanks. I knew they had some BS rules but did not know the specifics. They are always at the bottom of my list anyway.
  8. I love that Rivals apparently does not show J. Stidham at all and has us rated only at #11 last time I looked. This must be their day to take a nap.
  9. Can we have a Big AMEN!!
  10. WDE!
  11. My thoughts for sure. Just hoping at game time CGM lets him call plays on his own tendencies like most head coaches.
  12. I would suppose most all of us are obviously fans..some with more insight than others maybe..yet fans non-the-less. I fall in the glass-half-full category in that CRL has moved on and we now have someone different and by most accounts that is what all us fans were clammering for to happen. I for one am encouraged by his QB work and positive results where he has coached.
  13. I like the move also. IF, he is given the legit play calling duty, then our tendencies will change and hopefully be a little less transparent and repetitive. I like that he has spent time developing QB's and with good results. I see nothing wrong with is familiarity with Gus and Auburn. I just want to finally see positive and dynamic results on Offense. JMHO
  14. I remember those times vividly and appreciated what CTT accomplished, regardless of Bama's teams at the time. Bammer's could not stand his success, regardless of the reason. But as always around Auburn, the PTB got in the way and tried to hire Petrino. I was never in favor of CTT moving on. But that is just one man's feelings.
  15. I truly believe that neither SW nor KP were 100%. However, with that being said, I do not think that was all there is to what happened tonite. I genuinely believe that the players and coaches may have done all they could for the time being. Given the fact that we lost to the #1 and #7 teams in our last 2 games, is disheartening. But when I take off my Orange & Blue glasses, I see where that would be the case for lots of teams around the country. We just did not have enough overall talent, consistency, and yes luck, to make it happen with better teams we played at years's end. Yet, with the caliber of our returning skill position players, 2 (maybe 3) new QB's to start Spring practice, we have a good chance to improve on this just finished season in 2017. It doesn't mean that we will. I am extremely excited about Stidham and Barrett as QB's next year, along with some legitimate backup QB's behind them. We will have a little more depth at RB next year and are doing some decent recruiting otherwise. Some teams get better and stay better as the season unwinds. We got better and seemed to have a solid season brewing, then we lost our ONLY QB of any ability; we lost 3 Running Backs and our only H-Back to injuries and we lost continuity and the ability to produce. There were no players to fill the void, regardless of the blame or reason. The players we needed could not play and the coaches really had limited options. As much as I want to blame the coaches, we lost players at all the spots that we were razor-thin in depth. Sure, we could have better play calling, but first we have to have the players to execute the plays. We did not have any, they were all in the Training Room. JMHO...WDE..looking forward to next year.
