  1. Didn't Cory Grant return kicks. Nonetheless, I agree. Schwartz doesn't appear to have the field vision to return kicks. Have to be able to make the first couple of guys miss.
  2. Thanks Coach. Always enjoy reading your insight and listening to your podcasts. It is educational for us non-coaches to get your rational perspective.
  3. Derek Brown was a beast today! I’m normally at the game but had knee surgery so sat at home with my leg propped up. What a game!!! Post game CBS interviewed Derek Brown and then gushed about him and showed some of his highlights. Great publicity in his hope for some post season hardware.
  4. I think it depends on UF - FSU. If UF loses (unlikely), we may move up in SEC bowl hierarchy.
  5. Malzahn has got to be under Saban's skin and in his head. He made him look foolish with the kick six one second on the clock and now with the illegal substitution. No other coach has made Saban look foolish on national television. Much less twice!!!
  6. Does Gus Malzahn Have the Toughest Job in the Country? A Closer Look at the Road from 2013-Present Great article on AU’s schedule the last 7 years. What coach would want to come into this situation?
  7. Interesting article. I’m not sure how to post beyond a link... Shows just how tough a row AU has had.
  8. 1. Shug Jordan 2. My dad was an AU alum and fan. While in high school in Florida, my dad gave me 2 tickets and let me take my girlfriend to the AU-UGA game at Jordan Hare. As I recall, late in the first half (might have been the last play of the half). William Andrews cut and moved almost the entire length of the field. Didn't score but I have never seen a fullback move like that. Great game, great day and we were both hooked. The girlfriend didn't last but she wound up coming to AU anyway. 3. 82 Iron Bowl hands down.
  9. Then there’s the majority. Is Gus an idiot? No. We’ve been to the natty with Gus at the helm and to the SEC CG. Is Gus Vince Lombardi? Absolutely not. AU has been in the upper 25 for almost all of his tenure. He has his flaws and is turning out to not be what we thought we were getting but this doesn’t make him an idiot!
  10. When Gus made the "shade" on Nick Saban about game time, I thought "He's pretty confident to be picking on Lil Nicky". Now we know why. 5-0, headed to the Swamp!!!
  11. If his resignation is true, this’ll put UT first in line for the coaching carousel. Beating FSU to the punch!!
  12. During the KS timeout, Derrick Brown was in the defense huddle on the sideline. He turned and spoke to a trainer and they walked away from the huddle to what appeared to be one of the doctors or head trainers. Brown was talking to the doctor and kept pulling on the collar of his pads acting like he was short of breath. They held him out the rest of that series and next time I saw him, he was in street clothes on the sideline. Looked very comfortable and relaxed.
  13. This whole "hide part of the offense or don't run up the score" idea seems to be somewhat new to AU. I believe CTT was the first to do this - and it almost cost him a few games when opponents mounted a comeback. Under the last of the CSJ years and under CPD we would beat weaker opponents by 30+ points. Running our entire offense from game 1 helps the offense to perfect it's technique more than it aids future opponents. The SEC west teams know CGM's entire playbook already - they haven't forgotten it from the previous 6 seasons. So what are we hiding and how could it surprise our opponents when we spring a QB keep on a zone read? They know it's coming. The beauty lies in getting the O in a rhythm and the defense on their heels so they have no idea what play is coming next. They may know the AU playbook, but the opposing DC should be unsure what D to call because they have no clue which specific play is coming next. Our O has become too predictable. The D is rarely in the wrong play. Then we rely on the athleticism of a workhorse running back to make a play.
  14. If you go for two and screw it up, they run it back for 2, then a field goal ties it up. Don’t go for 2 and they have to score a TD no matter what happens.
  15. Don’t go for two. It gives them the chance to make it a 3 pt game if we screw it up.
