  1. The only reason I could guess on OSU is we may face them in a post season game. But like was said earlier, that's the way it works.
  2. Fair enough. No disrespect taken as I personally don't know either.
  3. You're right. There are a lot of things he can't control like OL and QB performance, as well as others. The part I think is up to him is hard work and consistently striving to improve. We've seen others transfer for "lack of effort".
  4. I think he's working hard. However before I dubbed him worthy of a raise or the highest paid position coach I personally would love to see him get a couple 1st rounders and maybe a couple stud classes back to back. jmo
  5. Guys don't take this as a dig on McClain but KB's comments reflect MM's senior year as well. MM has a lot of potential and could be great but his work ethic in HS, like a lot of 17 and 18 year olds, left a lot to be desired.
  6. I'm not sure that allure is as strong on the national stage of recruiting as it is in local recruiting but it definitely plays in with the in-state and regional guys.
  7. Thanks Stat. I don't think he will have to hit the TE often just enough to make the D respect the potential and defend it. I guess that's the case for the passing game in general if you're a run first O. Personally, I would sure like to see some of those short crossing routes utilized early and often.
  8. Count me in the camp of until I see them play this year none of them are NFL ready. Until they prove it on the field.. We have a lot of pieces that have potential but until that potential is displayed and we begin dominating other teams, I'll remain in the wait and see mode.
  9. It seems to me that if he made half time adjustments you would see them in the 3rd qtr. If it takes seeing them in the 4th qtr then it seems like he's making 3rd qtr adjustments to the other team's half time adjustments. Very rarely, have I seen Gus make changes that were reflected in the 3d qtr success against a quality team. I definitely don't see him as a chess player as they always seem to be able to anticipate what the opponent is doing. Gus seems to have to react...
  10. I agree with this. If I were any of these coaches and we win big next year, I would place the success on the QB and spin it to they will be right back the next year. For the nega-cruitin to quit, we are going to have to win back to back season. Nega-cruitin will always be around to some degree but these guys like to make themselves look good just by highlighting others faults. Smart didn't do anything his first year to talk smack but he will continue until we shut him up on the field. Let's just hope we win and Mr. Hill is smart enough to see through the lip service.
  11. Not to derail the derail but this JG kid seems like he's all AU at this point. Looking forward to seeing how he does this year.
  12. There was also discussion about his ball security. Maybe why they haven't moved him.
  13. I certainly hope JS is all that and a bag of chips. However, until I see him perform under SEC pressure, I'm not buying in to the hype. I can see where a HS scout team keeps him physically active and maybe helps some mentally in reading the Defenses but no way am I buying that a HS defenses is going to hone his skills and prepare him for SEC D's. They aren't doing the shifting and moving that an SEC Defense is doing. I think he's got a lot of potential but like many others here, I need to see performance. As for CGM's comments, this is his 5th year with a team loaded with talent that he recruited, he needs to put up or pack up.
  14. This is the problem most have. There was no reason AU shouldn't have been able to get a solid back up in for when the 1 injury pone QB went down (yes this is crying over spilled milk). Taking on a project late in the recruiting cycle was not an attempt to fix, it was a hail marry. We should have a solid backup regardless of who wins #1 when Nov rolls around. However, here's hoping CL gets the reigns and can adjust to what the defenses give him.
