  1. Herb Hand contract

    Anyone else consider the fact that maybe there is no one out there at this time? I'm sure as hell not happy about the extension and wasn't happy about the original hire even, but keeping him doesn't make a lot of sense to me unless something drastically changes or there isn't another choice.

    Revived! .... Waking up to the same thing for the last couple of years game plan wise.
  3. No joke. As an Auburn fan, don't tell me the odds.
  4. Let's expose the excuses and face reality

    I can also agree that it helps. You just need to find your mix first. Don't drink your angry alcohol watching the games unless you want to be working in the yard to calm down.
  5. The Official Meltdown Thread

    Exactly my thoughts. Now comes the next wave of off season overreactions, concerns, hope, and misery. Who needs soap operas when you have Auburn athletics?
  6. Chill Out

    Viola Davis, Clive Davis, Ann B. Davis. Ann B. Davis apparently is out for the foreseeable future with a really nasty case of what doctors refer to as "Pushing Up Daisies". There is no timetable for return.

    Granted, I saw this on SDS It could be wrong, but damn. Just not a wonderful start to the season
  8. Chill Out

    Oh yeah, don't forget Davis is also out for the season.

    Nope. click on "Insert Other Media" and then "Insert Image from URL"

    So, while I appreciate the intent of the post, you must u Okay. So in all honesty does this freak me out? No, but it does not have a good feel about it especially when he was the only "stable" option on the offense. When you walk in to a season saying, "Well, we don't have a quarterback, receiver core, some questions on the o-line, and a new defensive coordinator (which now makes the defense suspect)." You look to the one known item that was running back. People don't like unknowns, and with some many at the moment, it is not unusual for people to panic. One key skill player can make or break a season. Tre, Cam, Deshaun Watson, Leonard Fournette etc. Each player added a much needed versatility that added spark to the team that makes the team special.
  11. The Official Meltdown Thread

    I'm so happy that all my efforts to keep this thread alive are worth it. I would like to thank the team for allowing me to continue to dwell in misery fully once again! Welcome back boys! Now lets pack it up! Season over!
  12. I get your point as well, and you are right. It is hard to win in the SEC with 4th/5th options. There were some things very concerning to me though when weeks passed without significant improvement. Granted, hard to improve with a mix of options. Maybe it is a lot to ask that whoever we put in should be able to compete, and maybe they competed to the best of their ability with the short time they had. Maybe the recruting in the past put us in a bad spot, maybe there was conflict on the team, maybe Gus was too busy being a moderator rather than a governor, or maybe Les Miles and Saban joined together to put a voodoo curse on Auburn. There are a lot of maybes with no definitive answer. Hopefully this year will be better.
  13. This is my biggest gripe to be honest. Having players hurt is one thing, but not having a back-up plan (2, 3, 4) or ability to make changes based on personnel is disturbing. The kids are trying their hardest, and I won't put it on them. I also won't completely fault the coaches since I do not have any inside information as to what is going on in the program. If you want to be better, then you have to work real damn hard for it, and each lost day is a day someone else is getting better. Everyone has to get better.
