  2. Jordan Rodgers on Stidham

    I can't disagree with much of your assessment of some of the other aspects of his game. So I am not in the group overrating him. But the subject here was check off ability, a mental part of his game and to that end he either has the ability or he doesn't. We don't know for sure but I would say if he does, you should use it.
  3. Our Backup QBs

    Both of our backup QBs are DT QBs which put them at a disadvantage in the Spring game. That part of their game was taken away from them. But in a real game there are going to be times when they WILL have to rely on the pass. They were able to demonstrate their passing ability in the Spring game. In that part of their game I think it would be fair to say they both need work. Willis was much better than Gatewood but they were both missing wide open WRs. However, when a WR drops a pass on target the QB has done his job, so I don't count that as a bad pass.
  4. Jordan Rodgers on Stidham

    As if giving your QB the option to check out of a called play when he sees something at the line of scrimmage is a bad idea ? Heck maybe JS will even be able to check off to a quick pass to the TE when he sees 9 stacked at the LOS on a first down dive play. Now THAT would be a novelty. If he has the 'ability' to do this it's not even worth a second thought.
  5. Malik Willis starter?

    What we saw was 2 backup QBs out there. Willis was better then Gatewood but both need to be working on their passing skills this Summer. I just hope JS stays healthy all year.
  6. Rhett comments on his departure

    I would comment that on the offensive side, the losses in the SECCG and Bowl game had less to do with "the system" than it did with the overall performance of the offensive line. That was strange considering it was so late in the season.
  7. Don't be too down about the last game. When you're forced into small ball, like we were, it goes without saying that you have to be able to hit your shots. We had one of those nights where it wasn't going down and our opponent's big men had the advantage on our offensive rebounds. I hope this is the last game we ever see where our big men are sitting on the bench because of injuries or eligibility issues. This team was gritty all year and accomplished amazing things. It was a special Auburn BB team that will be remembered. The defense was greatly improved. Given what BP had to deal with this year, I thought he did one of the most remarkable jobs I have ever seen.
  8. replacing 4 starters on offensive line

    Yes, Hand had the luxury of several seasoned players he could move around and still maintain a functioning unit. Even then it didn't work every time. Grimes has to get these young guys assigned to their best positions and getting experience so they can function as a cohesive unit.
  9. replacing 4 starters on offensive line

    These guys need a LOT of work together as a unit so the sooner we name a starting OL the better. All this "mixing and matching" stuff is fine but there is a downside to it when a young starting OL needs work together. I'm just glad we have a coach like Grimes that teaches the details and fundamentals.
  10. Porter To Be New Special Teams Cordinator

    I guess it's a way to get a more detailed look for each assigned area of responsibility. We need some improvement for sure so we'll see how it works.
  11. replacing 4 starters on offensive line

    Same here, that is going to be the key for sure. Remember when Golson was moved out to LT for that 1 game ? He did a decent job there but the line really suffered. As soon as he moved back to OC the OL performance picked up again. Experience in calling out the blocking assignments is so important.
  12. replacing 4 starters on offensive line

    After our experienced OL got pushed around by UCF in the bowl game more than I liked to see, I'm more concerned with OL coaching. So less experienced talent this year but more coach 'em up.

    Let's just take the new finished fa├žade, run it behind the jumbotron, over to the other side and duplicate the box. BTW, I don't know how they think they can be building that thing without a videocam and our supervision. They could have never built the jumbotron without that. I have to say that was fun watching that go up.
  14. 2018 Spring Practice Schedule

    I'm calling false advertising on this thread. Where's the dang Spring practice schedule ?
  15. Locker Room Renovations

    We have no choice. Now we have to balance out Jacob's Folly. I mean if the SEZ is off balance, the jumbotron will start to lean to one side, like the leaning tower of Pisa. Am I right or what ?
