  1. 2017 Fall Camp - Tues, Aug 8 (Day 6)

    Since we should be asking our OL to pass protect a lot more this year, I really like Tega's length. Those long arms will help make up for some inexperience against a good speed rusher. Clemson's DL is stacked, so we should get a good read on this year's OL pretty quick.
  2. So here's something: It's seemed like awhile since we scored on a corner so I went digging through stats and game reports and found that the USMNT has not scored from a corner since November of 2015. That's a whopping 30 games with no goals from corners. We are 0 for the last 136 chances on corners. That ain't good.
  3. Kick-off for Ga. Southern 630PM

    I've been trying to figure this out myself. I'm really hoping our game is in the afternoon so it doesn't conflict with the UAT-FSU game at 7pm. The Auburn game will not be on ESPN or ESPNU since those slots are all booked up. There are three SEC teams without game times announced (Auburn, Mizzou, and Miss St.). ESPN2 isn't currently scheduled for any games, so that could be a wildcard. If all three TBA games fall to the SEC Network then I would guess our game would get the night slot since Mizzou and Miss St. both play FCS teams.
  4. I don't understand how Guzan still has a place with the national team. He really is utterly terrible. Surely some of the younger keepers could be used instead to spell Tim Howard.
  5. World Cup 2018

    Nice to get the win. I'd really like to see Wood start over Altidore against Mexico. Jozy had a couple nice passes but he doesn't seem to put the pressure on defenders that Wood does.
  6. World Cup 2018

    Gotcha. Yeah Cameron and Brooks are great together, so I'd think that would surely be the answer once everyone is healthy. I don't follow soccer at all outside of the national team, but for my money I would much rather see Wood replace Altidore and keep Dempsey out there.
  7. World Cup 2018

    So had they been healthy, would we likely have seen Yedlin and Fabian Johnson at RB/LB, with Cameron sliding back in to CB with Brooks? Also, where/who would Bobby Wood replaced had he been healthy? Also, looks like John Brooks will be out against Panama.
  8. 2017 Cal Grad Transfer OT Aaron Cochran

    Wouldn't that be a non-issue (waiting until June to enroll) since there are no new semesters between now and then?
  9. Auburn adds Tulane to 2019 Schedule

    I'm happy with scheduling Tulane. Their program has been terrible the last few years, but they still arguably have more talent than some of the Sun Belt and Mountain West teams we've played in the past few years.
  10. President Trump suggest cancelling meeting

    This isn't a subjective matter. A trade deficit with a particular country isn't necessarily a bad thing. We aren't losing value by buying more and cheaper goods. In fact, quite the opposite is happening. This is an outdated form of thinking (debunked since the 18th century), yet this simple political narrative remains powerful enough to harness the hearts and votes of conservatives in almost every election. As ICHY argued earlier, there are several issues linked to free trade that should not be sacrificed on the altar of free markets (environmental and labor policies, for example), but gains from trade are real and significant.
  11. President Trump suggest cancelling meeting

    Remember when conservatives were [correctly] in favor of free trade? It's curious to me how so many people fail to grasp the very basic fact that free trade allows us to consume more. We get cheaper goods. Mexicans get more jobs. Both sides win, because trade is not a zero-sum game. Mind-blowing, I know. Even if ending NAFTA were to return some jobs to the US (the number would be marginal because of structural changes in our economy), we would be net losers because the increase in prices for previously imported goods would rise more than US wealth from returned jobs. Also, it is arguable that ending NAFTA would result in US job losses in absolute terms since we have millions of jobs that rely on Mexican imports.
  12. 2017 CFP Championship thread

    So on the game tonight... I was very impressed with Venables' D. I liked that he brought pressure with some more agile defenders as the game went on to better contain Hurts. Also, Clemson defenders played well all night against Alabama's screen game. Also, Boulware was impressive and Mike Williams--my Lord--looked every bit the best WR in the country tonight.
  13. Opining all things Gus (Merged)

    I thought our defensive line was thoroughly outplayed by OU's o-line. That was the biggest and most troubling surprise to me.
  14. Thanks for letting us have our thread back, E. So can you give us a rundown of where things stand with Stidham and any timetable you might know? Facts have been buried in this thread.
  15. Auburn with shot at Sugar Bowl

    I'd be pretty shocked to see Washington beat Alabama. I'll be pulling for Colorado Friday night. I honestly think the committee may put Michigan in the 4-seed if Washington loses (since Michigan beat #6 Wisky, #7 Penn St, and #8 Colorado), and that would be a much tougher matchup IMO.
