  1. end the hot seat talk

    My perspective on Gus reminds me of Florida State in the 80's. Bobby Bowden came to FSU in the late 70's and had two very successful years right away to set expectations. They then went through several years of 7-8 win seasons and there was talk of making a change. Then, Bowden put things together as a head coach with two great coordinators (Brad Scott, Mickey Andrews). FSU then had an unprecedented run of something like 14 seasons finishing in the top 5!! When Bobby roamed the sidelines checking on players and keeping a pulse on the team and the flow of the game, everybody was happy. But, if something was going awry with the offense and he started putting on his headphones, the FSU boosters would begin to moan about here comes a bone headed play. This appears to me to be much like the Gus of 2017. I hope we're about to have a dominant run of success!! War Eagle!!
  2. Hey Golf ...

    Funny story: The Tiger Paws used to be right in front of us at ball games. We have 3 boys (all grown up now). When they were little they were all about Aubie and War Eagle. Then their eyes turned to the football players and the game. THEN, they discovered the Tiger paws and would be mesmerized by the girls dancing in front of us. All 3 wound up going to Auburn. I'm not sure if it was Abbie, the team, or the Tiger paws that influenced their love of Auburn the most!!!
  3. Where was NCM?

    Players' parents seats are in Section 7 about rows 7-20. Right behind AU bench. You have to watch out what you say in these seats. Marcus Mcneal's parents sat next to us one year. Marcus missed his block on one play and I wasn't about to yell at him - both his parents are much bigger than I am!
  4. Kerryon Johnson

    KJ was on the sideline still in pads with no brace and no ice after his injury.
  5. Where was NCM?

    We were at the game last night. Our tix are right next to the players' parents seats. Sat next to NCM's family last night. Great people, by the way. They were super frustrated at the lack of looks for NCM. He played quite a bit. He sealed the corner to spring KJ's long TD run. He was either not on the field or was tightly covered on pass plays. I hope it was by design and he'll be utilized against Clemson.
  6. Best AU Tight End ever?

    Middleton was a beast.
  7. Athlon ranking #9

    We've lived in Tallahassee for over 25 years now. The FSU-UA game will be a tough one for me to choose who to root for. My two least favorite teams going head to head - I wish both could lose!!!
  8. Athlon ranking #9

    The ACC vs SEC has FSU playing Alabama and Clemson playing us in the first two weeks of the season. If we're not careful, the ACC could be claiming they are the new dominant football conference. I don't expect either ACC school to win, but crazier things have happened.
  9. Rob Chaney at Tallahassee Community College is an Auburn man. Saw him Saturday headed to a ball game at TCC wearing his Auburn gear War Eagle Rob!
  10. ***Auburn vs. Ole Miss - Game Thread***

    Kelly is on fire right now. Give him time.
  11. Kevin Steele best first year DC in the SEC?

    Yep, my bad. All those Bowdens look alike to me!!!
  12. Kevin Steele best first year DC in the SEC?

    One half of a season does not make a great coach in my book. I really like CKS and I believe he's a great fit for AU and he'll be great for us, but the jury is still out. Remember, Tommy Bowden went like 20-0 before Coach Dye's players were all gone. Chiz went undefeated and looked great after one season...
  13. Tarheels trump the Noles!!

    We live in Tallahassee. Always happy when FSU chokes. I figure Jimbo already packed for Baton Rouge!!!
  14. FSU vs Louisville

    Living in Tallahassee and having to put up with FSU's superiority complex, we're loving this game!!!!! Not a big Petrino fan but Go Louisville!!
  15. **Arkansas State at Auburn - Game Thread**

    Clearly we were too focused on Ark St and overlooked Clemson.
