  1. The only thing I got out of that article was how much I have liked Chandler Cox during his 4 year career. Gonna miss him. Anyone know what his chances are of getting drafted in the NFL?
  2. Of course I don't think going 6-6, 7-5, and 8-4 is good for Auburn or Auburn fans. Not on a consistent basis. But if that is a progression over the first 3 years of a new coach taking the program to consistent 12-0, 11-1, or 10-2 seasons.... then I am willing to witness it. Saban 1st season at Bama was 7-6. My point is a new head coach needs the fan base to give him a little breathing room the first year or two. I don't think the base will allow it now.
  3. Wait a minute!! Bo Nix is Patrick Nix's son? Has it been that long ago? Man I'm feeling old.
  4. Hey AuRealist. I just reread my post and I think my tone towards you is not reflective of what I really think. I truly like your posts and I was simply trying to think through what really needs to happen vs what I would like to happen. Sorry but I think we are in for a long recovery.
  5. I can picture you with your fingers in your ears screaming "LA LA LA LA" at the computer screen. I know you hate hearing what you are actually thinking. But I tell you what.... lets both copy and paste our back and forth and revisit in 3 years.
  6. Well... the only other option I can see is to get a really good coach who is just as desperate as we are. Anyone willing to give Art Briles a call? I am.
  7. I actually think what is happening (though very painful now) will be for the best in the long run. After years of knee jerk reactions by Auburn and Jabobs, the truly talented head coaches would not come any where near this place. Sticking a couple of years with Gus will show potential HC that the new Auburn leadership will no longer overreact to a bad season. Plus it burns off some of Gus' contract. In the meantime, we can watch the coaching landscape for an upcoming star and the Auburn fan base can spend a few years toning down the expectations they would place on a new HC. By the time a new HC comes along, Auburn fans will be thrilled with a 6-6 season because they see improvement. The next year 8-4, next 10-2, and so on. If I remember correctly, this was exactly the atmosphere Saban walked into. I'm guessing 5-7 years before Auburn is back to prominence. A painful journey.... but it will simply take time to unravel this mess.
  8. This Gif reminded me of the Tennessee game
  9. I'm sorry for your loss. So recent. Come to think of it, my father took me to my first Auburn football game. He was stationed at Fort Benning. and wanted to spend time together. I loved it. So much so that I applied for acceptance. Best 4 years of my life. Met my wife. Had three wonderful kids. Auburn lost. Against Miss St. Barfield was coach. But it set my life on a wonderful course. Yeah.... it should have been the first thing on my list. I love Auburn. Regardless of our record.
  10. 1. In this PC world where winners are not recognized and participation trophies are the norm, I am thankful that at Auburn a 7-5 football season is totally unacceptable. 2. I am thankful that I have memories of all the wonderful memories of "Bo over the top", miracle at Jordan-Hare, kick six, punt bama punt, etc. There are a lot of schools that simply have nothing to compare. 3. I'm thankful my school is in the SEC. While that means we have many difficult seasons (like this one), but it makes the good seasons all that much sweeter. Can you imagine being in the ACC or MAC or PAC10? 4 I love Jordan-Hare stadium. Eagle flights. The tiger walk. The fact that you need to get to Auburn on the Thursday prior to the game to get a good tailgating spot.
  11. I agree 100% with you. But I think it would take 5-7 years to accomplish this. The Auburn fan base is too impatient and leary of the decision makers to put up with such a long process.
  12. 1. Jesus 2nd coming. 2. He agrees to be Auburn's QB. 3. Gus agrees to put him in the game. 4. Gus lets him audible. 5. Auburn defense shows up. Numbers 3 and 4 are the least likely things to happen.
  13. No. IMO The defensive staff is fine. But Gus is losing the team right now. Bad attitudes...a losing mentality...whatever you want to call it. If the offense were to suddenly improve to a mediocre status, then I think you would see the defense pick it back up again.
  14. Bruce Wayne? If so, you mind making a $40M donation to the Auburn coaching improvement fund?
