  1. I recall back in the day, we used to run a double screen at the top of the key. Chuck Person would come around the screen and hit a 3 every time. Even when the D knew what was coming, they couldn't stop him. They didn't call him the rifleman for nothing! I could see Jabari doing the same thing. His smooth release at the top of his jump is also great to watch.
  2. I agree. I rarely post but frequently check what’s happening on the AU forums. The past two weeks have been extremely entertaining!!!😁
  3. Could you imagine what the forum would have been like in 1998 and 1999? Terry Bowden was being canned with all kinds of accusations swirling around him and the athletic department. Then “Brother” Bill Oliver gets the interim coach title. When he’s not chosen to be the head coach, he sues the university for breach of contract because the PTB had told him he’d be the new coach if he’d help them oust CTB. Tuberville inherited a mess and eventually won 6 in a row vs Alabama! If we think this is bad, you only have to go back to the 1998-1999 seasons to realize it could be worse!
  4. I was in Auburn for most of the Sonny Smith years. Those were great times. We’d get to the coliseum early and grab front row seats in the student section. Lots of memories of Barkley, Frank Ford, Gerald White, Chuck Person. That was the golden era of AU sports - baseball, basketball, and football all were competitive and had great coaches. My wife is from Auburn and knew the Smith family well. Sonny’s a great and genuine Auburn man. So happy for him.
  5. It’s got to be tough for Mason to be an assistant coach again. He’s been a head coach and had a taste of being in charge. It could be hard on him to not be the boss. Having been in Harsin’s shoes, he may have strong opinions on how the program should be run. Maybe he sees more opportunity to move back into a head coaching position from another program not in the SEC. I had a employee that was promoted into a management position. He was unhappy having to manage other people so went back to his previous position. Then he wasn’t happy with the way the new manager handled things and eventually left the company. The fact he had no power to change his boss after he had been there was too much for him.
  6. Jimbo can recruit there's no doubt. But once all these 5 stars get to TAMU, can he keep them together. That's going to be a locker room full of egos and self absorbed athletes. So far, only CNS has been successful at that. Jury's still out on Kirby and Jimbo IMHO.
  7. I don’t think that’s the way that play was drawn up
  8. Is there a list somewhere of 2021 starters that aren’t playing in our bowl game? Did I miss it?
  9. For AU to move on, someone's got to beat him out. So far he's the best we got. That being said. I agree that he has the opportunity to be exceptional if he continues to improve thru next season.
  10. I recall in one of Pat Dye’s first seasons we went to Nebraska and were soundly defeated. Coach Dye came away saying the same thing. It’s good to be blue to recognize a good program and also realize we’re not there yet.
  11. I thought there was good play calling for the most part. In the stands, it looked like 3 stars playing 4 and 5 stars. They executed better and had better skill players. We didn’t do bad, just couldn’t compete…yet. Give us a year or two and our execution and understanding of the schemes on O and D will be better. Take away 2 long passes and the naked QB run and it’s a much closer game.
  12. Bo has rarely had the chance to stand on the sideline and watch another legit QB run the Auburn offense. He came on and started from game 1 of his freshman year. Most QB's get a year or two to stand on the sideline and observe and soak it all in. Sure, he's been on the sideline for a wildcat play now and again or to let Loy mop up. Giving TJ a chance to take the O out for a spin when it matters and giving Bo a chance to observe is huge for both of them. It will pay huge dividends for both of them.
  13. About what I expected. We are much improved but not there yet. We get PSU in our house next year. It will be a different outcome! Bo looked better than he did in the Swamp. We’re getting there! War Eagle!!
  14. Very true! I was hoping Mike Norvell would still be at Memphis whenever we got around to firing Gus. Fortunately for us, FSU picked him up. Harsin has come in and cleaned house at AU. Norvell has tried to work with the players he was dealt at FSU and is still having internal problems. Glad we got CBH and not CMN.
