    Harold Joiner sets sights on Heisman

  3. I don't have a link, but I remember it was reported/stated somewhere that if Auburn had been a country at the 1980 Olympics and all the athletes performed at their normal levels Auburn would have ranked 13th (I think) in the world as far as total medals won. I'm still pissed at the peanut farmer for boycotting those games in Russia.

    spring practice updates??

    I'll save you the trouble. Here's Malzahn's presser's for the rest of Spring and the 2018 season...

    Let's expose the excuses and face reality

    Check your PM and keep talking. I'm done unless you want to take it further in person.

    Let's expose the excuses and face reality

    I didn't disregard USC's probation which crippled them and Georgia's under performance which was similar to ours, but that they chose to send that underperforming coach packing which we haven't done yet. Sorry you're related to GM and he will meet the same fate at the end of this season. It's not personal, it's just about doing your job competently.

    Let's expose the excuses and face reality

    Which ones without Cam and Nick? Get real. How many scholarships did USC lose over that time? Georgia fired Richt for the same crap. Texas is on their 3rd coach after losing to Bama in the MNC. Nortre Dame has been a joke since Ara Parseghian and yes through Lou Holtz's #fakenationaltitle and Manti Te'o's #fakecatfish title game vs....wait for it...oh yeah, Bama again. (Thanks, you're showing me a trend here I hadn't noticed yet.)
  8. We're young. We've had injuries. Blah, blah, blah. Let's take a look year by year at Auburn's recruiting rankings and their final AP rankings. (Using 247 composite starting with the Big Chiz in 2009 because we know TT didn't recruit worth a crap but was never accused of not developing his players.) 2009 - Recruiting #23 Final AP rank #NR 2010 - Recruiting #6 Final AP rank #1 (BCS Champ) 2011 - Recruiting #5 Final AP rank #NR 2012 - Recruiting #11 Final AP rank #NR 2013 - Recruiting #10 Final AP rank #2 (BCS Choke Job) 2014 - Recruiting #6 Final AP rank #22 2015 - Recruiting #8 Final AP rank #NR 2016 - Recruiting #9 Final AP rank #24 2017 - Recruiting #9 Final AP rank #???? We've been in the top 25 EVERY year for the past 8 years and we've been ranked in the top 25 half of those years. Has any team in the HISTORY of college football done less with more? Seriously make that case (maybe Texas and maybe Notre Dame?) What would explain this other than coaching incompetency? Seriously curious about how you pumpers can spin this one.

    Culture of Excellence

    Very true, but how many coaches get a contract extension after 12-2 (choking in BCS title game after it was sewn up), then 8-5, then 7-6? Easy come, easy go.

    Gus sent a 'message' yesterday

    Like the Vanderbilt game last year? Serious question because I have no idea of the answer. How many carries do KM, MM, and DB have and how many times have each fumbled (in an actual game).

    FWIW.

    Nah, not really. It's really Cam Newton, Tahj Boyd, Nick Marshal, DeShaun Watson, and now maybe Bryant. It's not Barrett Trotter, Clint Mosley, Kiehl Frazier, JJ, Sean White and maybe not Jarrett Stidham. We'll see how this plays out.

    A few thoughts on M. Willis....

    I may agree with you and just used the wrong terminology. I referenced back side, because Myles was lined up over the LT and Braden was RG. However, (and i just went back and rewatched the two plays), and Myles was actually the play side DE (meaning the QB/RB mesh was going to him). If he was truly backside and we were running away from him, I'd agree the playside guard could cut him off (instead of the backside guard trying to block the playside DE). I think the way we ran it was unsound and not physically possible. But, maybe we just disagree.

    Who is holding Gus to the fire?

    Jimmies and Joes are a NECESSARY, but not SUFFICIENT condition for winning championships. A minimum modicum of competent coaching and player development is still required, especially in college.

    Who Do You Want?

    Not attacking you AU1H1, just using your quote. IMO, this is why I don't get too engaged in coaching searches at Auburn. Because, we're never going to get someone like a Saban, a Harbaugh, an Urban, etc. We're worried about things that aren't related to winning football championships, like "fit". We'll continue to have the miracle seasons, the undefeated seasons, the once in a lifetime plays, but we won't ever churn out the teams that walk out onto the field with the mission of destroying the other team and winning championships. Dye in the mid 80's was the closest we've gotten.
