  1. He may be the best coach in Auburn Football program history but he is certainly not a good recruiter. If things continue along the current trend, Rivals team ranking (#39), he will leave this program in a very bad place when he departs. A place that it make take years to recover from.
  2. Current Rivals recruiting rankings: Alabama #1 Auburn #38 A (37) position recruiting advantage for Bama for 2021. Irrelevant I know but what the heck, Turds win Saturday by (37).
  3. Kill this recruiting class? I would say it is already on life support. Current Rivals rankings: Alabama #1 Auburn #38 A (37) position advantage for Bama for 2021. Don't know how Auburn will finish but right now it is not good.
  4. I was totally wrong. It was the thumping that I expected but the thump-e and the thump-er were the opposite of what I predicted. At this point I don't know what to expect from these Auburn Tigers.
  5. Did anyone else notice SW using the expression "everything that goes with that"? I think he used it twice. I couldn't decide if he was poking CGM or if he picked it up from the man himself. Maybe CGM is teaching a non-credit course for the football players on public speaking.
  6. I think this will be a repeat of the Georgia game and maybe worse. The Oline will not be able to get movement on LSU's Dline and that means limited running room for Tank and Worm. They will get mostly YAC which is a bad way for a running back to make a living. LSU will definitley pressure our QB and that won't be good either. The D will not be able to pressure the LSU freshman QB and he will look like Tom Brady. I think LSU will win it going away. Normally if i am pickling AU to lose, I hope that I am wrong. This week I don't have that hope. Guessing by Saturday night there will be a lot
  7. Most coaches get an initial contract, typically five years, when they take over a program. During that contract it is "make or break". If the program does not show significant progress during that time, and if there is not a clear indication the program is improving, the coach will not be retained. CGM got a second "make or break" opportunity when Dr. Leath signed off on the seven year extension in (2017). Even a cursory look back should have given any thinking person pause before authorizing any such contract extension. Considering that Auburn is surrounded by schools with excellent recruiter
  8. I see that as balancing out the holding call on Tank's kickoff return. Didn't call Ole Miss for holding all game and saw it several times. The call on the kickoff return was total BS because the action was well away from the play and behind it.
  9. I worked for a number of different corporations during my career and one thing they all had in common was, they would not invest in an under performing segment in the hopes of turning it around. Maybe that was short sighted on the part of management or maybe that is just the way that people in management (BOT) think. I think everybody knows that a change is coming, including me. The difference is, I think that change will happen when it is cheap enough.
  10. Posted this on another thread but I think it is relevant here: "Pretty sure we are going back to "smash ball' this weekend for several reasons: Auburn desperately needs to win QB needs some of the play making pressure removed from him Pass plays will work better once the defense is thinking run first AU passing attack is fractured right now and needs some help A successful rushing attack will control the ball, control the clock, and protect the defensive line I don't know if they can run the football against Ole Miss, but I suspect that they are going
  11. Yes it may well take a decade and if that decade starts in 2023 or 2024, I may not see AU football greatness again. I just hope it happens someday because, to be honest, as a lifelong Auburn fan and eventual graduate, greatness has been fleeting.
  12. There is a lot of ranting and wishing on this board, and it is perfectly understandable. Auburn fans want excellence in their football program and Auburn is paying for it and not getting it. But, we are stuck with the current H/C for sometime to come and I can give you ($21.7 Million) reasons why. Covid or no Covid that is a lot of money. The damage that may be done over the next couple of years will be significant and may take a long time to overcome. On the bright side, I don't think CGM will ever get another contract from AU. The one thing I don't understand about comments on this board is
  13. If the offensive line can continue to improve and the running backs can stay healthy, we might all be surprised at how much the QB play will improve. Right now our starting QB looks like he is desperate to make a big play and is making some unwise decisions because of that. The Auburn offense will succeed as a team or it won't succeed at all. He needs some more help from the o-line and running backs together executing the rushing attack. And not just one running back please.

I also suspect that CGM is now directing the offense. I trul
  15. I believe the real issue is that CGM is an X's and O's guy. He realizes that administrative support, alumni support, wealthy donor support and fan support are essential, and he does make some attempt to engage with these sometimes overlapping groups, but he really doesn't embrace it the way Bruce Pearl does. Also, for some reason, he is not a dynamic recruiter and that is the root cause of our issues now. I would love for CGM to succeed at Auburn, but to do that he needed to recruit better. I don't see how he is going to do that going forward. He is now surrounded by programs with coaches
