  1. Gus would be wise to look around

    Pump the brakes people. I think we need to let our new AD settle in and get a lay of the land before we start looking for head coaches. Let him see what he has to work with, and what personality types will work with our leadership and boosters. Because honestly, if the coach can't communicate well with the BOT and boosters, then it'll be a failed hire long term regardless of how good he is. The first bump in the road we cross, all hell will break lose. I also think it's a bit premature to be going ahead and looking at firing a coach that will easily win 8 games this year, and still has the theoretical possibility of winning 10 (and that's before the post-season begins). The only reason people are giving up on the Bama and UGA games (and thus our coach) is because they are ranked #1 and #2. If they were each ranked 10-25 or so, I don't think anyone would be considering firing him yet. It's dumb to base the firing of our coach on the ranking of our rivals. This is how you get a program spiraling out of control (see UT). I mean, if we fire Malzahn and our prospective new coach asks the questions "Why did you fire Malzahn?", do you think "He failed to beat the #1 and #2 teams in the nation this year." will go over well? We're going to look unreasonable and unstable especially having let go of our AD. Three of our loses will have been against Top 5 teams, and he deserves to get fired? And regardless, we STILL have a chance against Bama+UGA. They're home games against our rivals. I'm not quitting on this team yet.
  2. new head coach next year?

    Let me ask a few questions here: When was the last time Auburn fired a head coach with a winning season? When was the last time they fired a coach who never had a losing season? Is this coach's historical record definitively worse than the last 5+ coaches at AU? Is the program definitively on a downward trend (record/recruiting)? Has the coaching staff been involved in any scandals? Has there been an abundance of legal misconduct by players (compared to other schools)? Right now, his record is roughly on average to what Auburn's average record has been for the past 40 years, and we're going to have yet another winning season. And that deserves a firing? Do you know the history of UT and how they got to where they are? Malzahn is not going to get fired for his performance this year. And I doubt next year either unless there is a colossal collapse of the program between now and then and we lose the remainder of the games this year. Or go sub .500 next year.
  3. new head coach next year?

    He has at least one more year. But he has to beat a majority of the three: LSU/UGA/UAT. His record against our biggest rivals as head coach is abysmal. What also plays into it is recruiting. As long as recruiting continues to look good, i could see that extended to 2 years. But again, his record will keep him on the hot seat.
  4. ***Auburn vs. Mercer -- Game Thread***

    4 fumbles and an interception mainly. Plus some poor execution.
  5. scrimmage updates?

    Unless Willis is head and shoulders better than White, i think White will be the backup. 1. He has experience and if you need a QB to come in cold in the middle of a tight game on the road, you want someone who has been there before and knows the offense backwards/forwards. 2. It allows us to redshirt Willis. However, if JS wasn't on this team, then i could see Willis being the starter. There's just no real benefit to putting Willis in that backup role right now.

    Thanks. That might get me by, but i use PocketCasts for all my PodCasts on my phone. Right now, their podcast doesn't show up:

  9. AUFamily RSS link

    On the homepage of AUFamily, the RSS link has been broken for years. Is this every going to get fixed? I'd love to subscribe to this site, but it doesn't seem like there's a point, since the feed shows nothing. Now that the forums have been updated, i hope some attention can be given to this. http://www.aufamily.com/index.php?format=feed&type=rss
  10. Time to change seating

    The easy solution to this, is take a picture at the end of the game (or less than a minute to go) of the student section like has been posted above. Count then number of students in that block at the end of the game. If the number of students in that block is less than 75% of capacity for the block, then they get knocked a damaging number of "spirit points". What defines a "spirit point" more, than having your butt in the stadium big win/big lose/draw??????? As for students/pledging cheating the system by scanning a bunch of ids at other events and then leaving, they need to fix that problem and stat. Have them pick up a card at the beginning of those events. At the end of the event, let them turn the card in for the privilege of scanning their id and their id only. Lastly, pledges or whomever else trying to reserve a significant number of seats in the general student section is BS. That crap needs to end. I'd have serious problems with that if I were a student still. The problem Auburn currently has, is they've let these fraternities run amok and abuse the system without any repercussions. That's the bottom line. AU needs to get control of it.
  11. RSS Feed?

    Is there an RSS Feed for this website? It'd bring a lot more visibility to your articles if there was one.
