  1. I think the defense has to control the Kentucky offense. In fact I think the defense has to win games early in the season. We have great skill people on offense but I have to believe the o-line will not be operating cohesively. I do expect the entire offense to improve as the season progresses but initially I expect some issues. You can bet that an experienced Kentucky defense will show the Auburn o-line everything they have in their "bag of tricks". I am going to say Auburn by (3) primarily because I cannot pick against the orange and blue and I hope to be pleasantly mistaken about the o
  2. Probably the feature back or backs will be those who can get the most yards after contact. Speed is great, but for a running back it is seldom effective unless they can get thru traffic to use that speed. A lot of backs have played for Auburn that did not have sprinter speed but they could help the team move the chains.
  3. This is the single most important issue before this Auburn team. If CGM will leave it alone, I believe the team will progress during the season. If he doesn't then, deja vu. All this being said, I expect the offense to struggle against a pretty good Kentucky defense. New offensive line, mostly inexperienced running back group, brand new offense, no spring practice, five starters out for Covid, and defenses usually have the advantage early in the season. Not sure if we can get a win out of this one or not, especially with (80%) of the fans missing which might dramatically reduce the home field
  4. I went through basic training there and have never been back. I remember some nearby town named Leesville, I think. I never went there but I heard a lot of things about it and none of them good. Good luck on riding out the storm.
  5. I'll take #22, Harold Joiner. I think he looks like an SEC back. He could prosper in Chad Morris's offense.
  6. With all due respect, if you are an Alabama fan you would have to love a (16) team playoff as it would definitely favor the team with the most quality depth. IMO the teams that would benefit the most from this would be Alabama, Georgia, LSU, OSU, and Clemson. A team that might be able to put the best first unit on the field might not be able to do so after one or two critical injuries. I am thinking of Kerryon Johnson's injury late in the 2017 Alabama game and the subsequent collapse of our season. We weren't the same team without him healthy. I think we should be careful about what we wish fo
  7. I actually can imagine what you and your family are going through. Not the same malady but a medical issue that complicated and inhibited their lives (two sons) and consumed ours (my wife and I). The youngest missed a year out of school, and my wife had to give up her job to home school him. You just keep going, keep pushing, keep on keeping on, one day after another. Fortunately, they both grew to be healthy and normal adults but there was no way to know that at the time. I hope you get the same outcome with your son. In the interim, I will keep you and yours in my pr
  8. Thanks for identifying some of the key blocks and blockers during the run back. I have wondered about who hit who very often. I also appreciate your directional arrows showing Davis's initial vector slightly to the right before breaking for the left sideline. This maneuver had to hold some of the Alabama defenders near the middle of the field momentarily and gave the Auburn blockers a little more time to set the wall down the left sideline. Excellent!
  9. This has always been my favorite video of the Kick-6. Have always been amazed that every AU fan in the stadium is hysterical but the AU band has to stand and deliver a perfect rendition of "War Eagle". I think it just shows how much skill and discipline is required to be in the Auburn University marching band.
  10. I observed that one key to the success of the runback was Davis running straight back up the field from the back of the end zone to about the five yard line before breaking for the left sideline. This maneuver forced the Bama defenders to hesitate briefly because of the possibility that Davis could have gone for the right sideline which was wide open. If you watch the replay carefully you can see Brian Vogler (Bama #84) trying to make sure Davis does not get to the right sideline and in the process of doing this he is only able to get a hand on Davis's shoulder. Vogler, a t
  11. Start Rocker - Pat Dye thought he was mean. I think CPD is a guy who knows mean when he sees it. (Prayers for Coach Dye) Bench Brown - Rocker has got to have a blow now and then Cut Fairly - Only option left
  12. The only explanation I could offer would be "home cooking".
  13. Thanks, these are spirit lifters during a difficult time.
  14. A bad place to have a bad problem. The blind side, for a right handed QB.
