  1. They will be competing with USCw in the high-bidder stakes. I suspect to two top targets will be Cristobal and Franklin. But I'd be surprised if either wants to leave their current position. And why would they want to step into that Baton Rouge cesspool? Money ain't everything and they both get plenty. Given the problems at LSU right now with court cases and investigations related to sexual assault cover-ups, I don't think they'd go after Urban Baggage. And with his history, no matter his religious school penance, would Freeze be hire they'd risk? I kinda think their best bet wo
  2. Do we see him on Saturday? YES. We will. Why? Not because he is the best QB or because he is better than Bo. He performed reasonably well vs GSU, plus Harsin understands that it is important to have a #2 ready to go. So, just like last week, I expect to see TJ getting a series in the first half. And YES! I'm perfectly OK with that!
  3. I agree, but it is not just OL. Fact is, the AU current recruiting will DEFINITELY not be competitive in the SEC at this point. I see nothing in our Harsin recruiting list that will prepare Auburn too compete with UGA, Bama, or even teams that we usually beat like OM, A&M, etc. Nothing against the guys on the list, but honestly, a truckload oof 2 and 3 star guys will not be competitive against any team (like bamqw, UGA, etc) with a truckload f 5 star players. Thing is, this year performance counts a LOT as far as recruiting for this season. So far, Auburn looked competitive against P
  4. Okay, LSU is not the powerhouse that they have been in the past. Miss State out-played them the entire game and really deserved to win. Unfortunately, MSU had some broken plays and gave up 3 TDs as a result. But ya know, that is a part of thew game of football, and successful teams make those kinds of plays happen. Can Auburn avoid big plays like that? I dunno. I thought the Auburn secondary was going to be a strong point of the defense. But they looked like s*it against Georgia State. And the DL is getting no pressure on the opponent's QB at all. LSU doesn't have much of a running g
  5. hahahaha ---- Auburn has no legit competitive QB. We got Bo, who is proven mediocre. And we got TJ, who is unproven against decent opponents. Personally, I'm all for letting DD our 3rd string guy go live and get prepared for next season ------ because this season is already down the tubes.
  6. At least Harsin had the balls to pull Bo. I really don't care how much Bo's mechanics have improved, his end results have not improved. He is still a mediocre (at best) SEC QB. But I'm not putting it all on Bo. There were pre-game threads about show up, give a crap. The entire team was off in a different world today. The defense was apparently playing in a different parallel universe than this game. And THAT. IS. ON. HARSIN. and his coaching staff. The entire team was not focused, was not ready. Looking forward to LSU? It is up to the coaches to make sure that doesn't happe
  7. Well, returning to the original post --- When I saw the topic title "Show up, give a s*** and repeat” I thought it was demanding FANS show up at games. Ya know, like Akron, Ala State, Georgia State. Because ..... well, I dunno. These are the only home games Auburn can win???? Sorry, I just wasn't dialed in to whatever OTHER intent might be for the title. But, okay, why would players NOT be focused on big games? Isn't that ** expected **? And isn't it the JOB of coaches to have players totally prepared and focused for the games? Isn't it their job to make sure that the entire te
  8. So now we have people swallowing disinfectant because some complete moronic idiot politician suggests it. Now we've got endless people eager to suck down animal de-worming paste because .... who knows ...... some moron idiot suggested it. No scientific evidence, When I worked at the Texas Medical Center back in the early 1980s, actor Steve McQueen showed up at world renowned MD Anderson Cancer Center (where my wife worked) seeking a cure for his cancer. Unfortunately, there was no cure. But in Mexico, there was a "cure" involving avocado crap injected into your spine. Hundr
  9. Tennessee governor (Yes, an AUBURN graduate) has decided that monoclonal antibodies treatments are ONLY available to people who are unvaccinated. So,, if you made your effort to fight the pandemic, got vaccinated, well ...... FU! https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/tennessee-limiting-monoclonal-antibody-treatment-unvaccinated-residents-n1279740 BTW -- that's me and wifey. We got vaccinated, because it was the right thing to do. Now, we are not eligible for treatment because ........ friggin right wing political nutcase crazoid politics?
  10. Okay, I agree. Bo has "looked" better in the pocket. His footwork is prettier. His armswing is shorter. He isn't running for his life because the OL is doing better. BUT ..... In terms of actual performance, he has NOT improved. Against teams with a pulse, he is still not delivering. 98.8 QB rating. By any standard, crappy. 54% completions. By any standard, crappy. I'm sorry, that is NOT an improved performance over previous years against decent teams. How much of this blame do you want to lay on Harsin & Bobo? In the past, we laid all the blame on Malzahn. Now w
  11. I donated but I still cannot read this "Things I Think I Saw" post. How many times do I need to donate? How much do I need to donate? Is AUF now a pay site?
  12. Okay, everyone has been saying his mechanics look better, his pocket presence looks better, his footwork looks better, the OL protected better so he was not running for his life the entire game. YET! Bo is still Bo. He looks like magic against cupcakes, but against solid teams, he is just not the level of QB who can actually HELP your team. It's the same ol' same ol' against teams that have a pulse. Against Penn State QB rating 98.8. Completions 54.5%. Can we blame it on the OL? NO! Can we blame it on the receivers? Well, how many balls did they drop that were actually
  13. So, instead of just speaking up front, off the cuff, as a coach, Franklin reads a bunch of cue cards (who knows who wrote those cue cards. are they so called "analysts"?) which is really just coach-speak blabber-blabber. Honestly, I didn't go any further than his opening remarks, because ..... 37 minutes? Nope. Were there any comments by Franklin beyond those opening cue cards about Auburn?
  14. I say "premature" because we still don't know who will be out for Auburn or PSU due to COVID protocols or injuries r other issues. So these are just some observations to think about - negative and positive First, some problematic issues -- 1. Last I looked, Auburn has lost 9 straight games against highly-ranked teams. (Of course, that was Malzahn, but .....) 2. PSU has the 2nd largest stadium in FBS and is VERY LOUD! Especially when doing White Out. 3. Penn State recruiting rankings are comparable to Auburn over the past few years. 4. Bo has not played well in road ga
  15. So, instead of just speaking up front, off the cuff, as a coach, Franklin reads a bunch of cue cards (who knows who wrote those notes) which is really just coach-speak blabber-blabber. Honestly, I didn't go any further than his opening remarks, because ..... 37 minutes? Nope. Were there any comments by Franklin beyond those opening cue cards? Waiting for aubiefifty to do a little bit of effort before he reposts stuff he grabs from the intertubes (which he never does in his hundreds of reposts) in order to provide the salient, relevant, useful parts. Oh well, not holding my breath.
  16. Well, ya'know, if he can't make the starting lineup at F .... S .... U , well okay then ......
  17. So this is the marching band thread? All of you are circling around the ONE MOST IMPORTANT issue. (BTW - My first professional career was in music. Not brass or percussion, so never marching band.) The entire purpose of music performance is to entertain an audience. If the audience is bored, it doesn't matter how technically proficient the individuals or ensemble are. If the audience enjoys the performance, perfection is pretty much irrelevant to audience members.
  18. I use AdBlocker Ultimate on Firefox and Chrome. I NEVER get a pop up ad or any other kind of 3rd party garbage ad on ANY site, including Facebook, Yahoo, etc. Yes, I know many sites receive click-thru revenue from ads. I don't mind ads that are integrated into the site (for example the AUF sponsored ads for Auburn gear. But I will not tolerate garbage being thrown all over my screen with those 3rd-party ads that are totally irrelevant to my reason for being there. If you use a mobile device, well, I don't, so I can't offer any advice there, but for Firefox and Chrome, you can get AdBlocke
  19. True, PSU did not look great on offense. Of course, what everyone seems to be forgetting, is that Wisconsin has had one of the top 3 defenses in FBS over the past 3 seasons. They had some breakdowns in deep coverage, but stuffed the PSU rushing and shorter passing game. Can Auburn's defense equal Wisconsin's? Still to be seen, as it us a new scheme. PSU's defense looked good at times and shaky at times. Wisconsin moved the ball, but had a lot of critical mistakes that cost them the game. Gotta give PSU credit. They went into a hostile environment on the road and came away with a
  20. Well, I'd have to place Clemson vs UGA at the #1 on my list. Penn State vs Wisconsin would be my #2. UCLA vs LSU is #3 on my watch list. Louisiana vs Texas would be my #4.
  21. Auburn's Nick Brahms named the best center in the SEC. Really? So, is this an indication of how crappy the entire SEC OL players are? or is it an indication of how awful SEC OL are compared to other teams nationally? Or is itr some sort of notion of how sh*tty the crop of Centers is Nationally this year? Because in most years, he definitely would grade out nationally as a very late round draft pick. Of course, that's just me............. Maybe Cleveland thinks he is Da Man!
  22. Couldn't beat UCF when he was at Auburn, can't win at UCF now. Looks like the same ole Gus team to me. Predictable. YO1 Big Cat made a play! But ya know, Boise State offense looks pretty good. Of course, they have a decent QB and a decent OL and decent receivers. SEC requires more than decent.
  23. What could be even WORSE than Trump in a future presidential regime? Ack! Desantis! The scourge of unholy dead!
  24. After the larest fiasco with Harsin and other coaches and player, plus the decision by Auburn to ignore the COVID goals, I'm going with 6-6 at best and maybe even 5-7. And that is even f Auburn doesn't have to forfeit any games due to COVID. Sorry ti be so negative. Im usually pretty optimistic. But given the current, ....................
  25. Not exactly new, but wifey and I just watched the entire first 2 seasons of an Aussie political/spy thriller called Secret City. Really intense. Excellent acting, topped by Anna Torv (who was nominated for best actress for 13 seasons of Fringe and now both seasons of this series). If you haven't seen it -- 2 seasons of 6 episodes each -- on Netflix.
