  1. The title of the thread and wording in the comments made it seem like your focus was a combo of "Influencers" and forum folk, where I was solely talking about the people making money off of the whole ordeal. Not a problem though. Both coming at it from similar angles.
  2. Agreed. My personal standpoint is don't bring him back. He is a very good DC, but any assistant coaching spot taken by him will only be a short stop. We need to build a solid foundation, and hiring Muschamp is only a temporary fix. If the HC wants to bring him in, fine, but it won't sit well with me. You build a strong product through consistently setting and meeting expectations and goals. It is hard to do that if you bring in people constantly looking for the next step. Now, I'm not saying don't bring in someone eager; there needs to be that fire in a DC, but we are not at a program spot t
  3. People's reactions were par with what I expected due to the lack of communication and transparency provided to the public. If you want to be mad at anyone, be mad solely with "Insiders" that people continue pay on the pay sites. They proved, once again, that they knew absolutely nothing and spread garbage in an effort to get clicks and generate revenue. Speak with your wallets. Cancel memberships and block them on social media.
  4. Man, life is tough in general, and this year has been a struggle for a lot of people in general. Add being an Auburn fan in the mix, and you got the perfect combo for stress induced diatribes. Cut yourself some slack, especially this time of the year.
  5. Hard disagree. Kiffin and Freeze both have loaded baggage that I would not anywhere near a program. The way Kiffin threw his dad under the bus at USC was completely despicable. He is cocky and whines when things don't go his way; his attitude isn't funny or cute. Freeze will always be associated with scandal. In both cases, the lack of cognitive self-realization is disturbing. It isn't a one off flaw; it is an issue to the core. If you want to get rid of the "little brother"/cheater persona that seems to hang over the Auburn program, you can't go with either one of these coaches. Are they t
  6. Friendly reminder that we are 370 pages and this gif is still appropriate
  7. Now when did this become the new freakout thread without telling me?!?!
  8. So, after reading through 206 pages of info, this is the conclusion I have come to
  9. It is the circle of PM: Preseason - "We are something special" Offseason - "Some great things are happening, but I won't tell you what, and I sure as heck won't tell you what it means by taking a firm stand on an issue." Create optimism of the season- "We are going to win it all this year unless realistic items 1,2,3 happen" 1,2,3 - always happen First loss - "We are young. Give it time" Second loss - "The fans are expecting too much. Who set the bar this high?" We win a few - "We just need to continue evaluating and tweaking the program
  10. Glad to hear they are doing so well, and I hope things continue to go well for them. Second off. **** cancer. I lost my mom to it too last year. Remember to keep breathing and don't forget to take some time for yourself this holiday season.
  11. Short Answer: No Long Answer: Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Seriously though, not much can be derived from the LSU game. They aren't the same as the 2019 team, and 2020 is essentially a rebuilding year. They are a young team still trying to find leadership, and lack of player leadership showed in the 2nd half, where they kind of gave up.
  12. That's what it looked like to me last game as well. There are a couple RPOs where Tank could have gone to the house, but Bo ended up keeping the ball for a loss/int/sack.
  13. You may very well be right, and if that is the case, then it is very damning. It definitely seems that way. Without autonomy and the ability to adjust ad hoc, the offense will never be good/great.
  14. It seems like he is having an extremely difficult time reading the defense this year. There were several times last game where he misread the defense on RPOs; instead of giving the ball to Tank, he pulled for a pass. He either is in his own head too much and not confident, or he is losing his ability to count. So, even when the line improves, the mental game driving the machine needs to be present in the game. The football IQ just does not seem to be there at the moment.
  15. Gus and team decide to go with no offensive line the entire game. Somehow Auburn scores field goals the entire game still. On the flip side, SC only scores on multiple safeties. Auburn - 21 SC- 8
  16. Y'all might as well start posting here
  17. The fact is gents that our offense is stuck in a system of premediated outcomes. It literally explains all of the poor play of the last 8 years. There is an inability of trust and flexibility left outside of Gus calling the plays. The play is the play. There are no audibles. We've all danced around it, but this is the truth. The way to win is by impowering the QB to make informed decisions based on the defensive setup, but that isn't happening right now.
  18. Eh. At this point it is more like a group therapy session rather than a meltdown. Consider this a therapeutic space to vent in the absurdity of it all.
