  1. Top AD candidates becoming clearer

    Last time I checked (a few years ago) JJ was over the 1 mil a year point. I don't want anyone that is part of the ol boy network as that is a problem that we have now within the department. We need someone to advance our department and clean house from some of the scandals that we have and have had. People would have been fired in companies that misappropriated tickets like we had a couple of years ago. Everyone on here has had some sort of issue with our Athletic Department, I believe we need a New AD that will overcome those problems and do the right thing and not cover these issues up. We don't know everything that happened with the softball team but we all know that it wasn't a secret within the athletic department as you can't keep that a secret. Someone had to have known and yet who was let go over that mess besides the coaches? Look at what has happened in basketball. You mean to tell me that it wasn't known by someone within that department? I am sure it probably could have not been known, but given the fact that it was mentioned that "this is how it is done in the NBA" coming from one of our coaches this had to have been known by others but yet nothing was done about it. Look at the former baseball coach that was fired...there was problems there and someone with the AD had to have known some of the issues if not then what are they doing? That is why I would like someone who will clean up the department. Of course this is my opinion of things going on within the department. I am not an insider but I do know that there are many issues within the department that will need to be straightened out. I just want a strong ETHICAL leader to right the ship and continue to keep it running.
  2. Let it SNOW!!!!!!!

    It is a little chilly here. Sitting in 75 degree weather. Great sunset tonight on the beach.
  3. A little perspective, please

    We had a good run this year. Time to rebuild, heal up, win the bowl game and look at our depth issues for next year. Hard to win twice in a row on a good team. Well it is ALWAYS GREAT TO BE AN AUBURN TIGER!

    Goodnight folks. Hard to come back from that one....We had a heck of a run this year! Let's heal up and win our bowl game. Did anyone expect to be here after the LSU loss? We have played well but we are out of jusice out of the past couple of weeks.
  5. ***SECCG -- Auburn vs. Georgia -- Game Thread***

    that should have been an easy toss...
  6. ***SECCG -- Auburn vs. Georgia -- Game Thread***

    Normally, I wouldn't be that worried being down by 2 scores but not today....hope we get a good bowl game at least.
  7. ***SECCG -- Auburn vs. Georgia -- Game Thread***

    KJ is hurt and probably shouldn't be carrying the ball. Just my opinion...too many turnovers....that is killing us and putting it all on the D. Haven't given it up but not looking good at all for us. Unless we come out and dominate the rest of this quarter.
  8. ***SECCG -- Auburn vs. Georgia -- Game Thread***

    just shut up already about the east miss junior college getting in...this is the game to talk about....
  9. ***SECCG -- Auburn vs. Georgia -- Game Thread***

    Not playing man and blitzing is killing us. Wide open in the zone...
  10. ***SECCG -- Auburn vs. Georgia -- Game Thread***

    These announcers are driving me crazy with their propping up the dawgs
  11. ***SECCG -- Auburn vs. Georgia -- Game Thread***

    D Has to make a 3 and out here. Get the momentum back.
  12. ***SECCG -- Auburn vs. Georgia -- Game Thread***

    Tough game today. Need to make some adjustments or it will be a long day.

  14. Play calling was amazing

    I think that was on Malik. He pulled the ball when the end didn't crash.
  15. end the hot seat talk

    It looks like the above words doesn't give him credit. I know the LSU loss is tough along with Clemson both this year and last. Last bad QB handling this year new QB. I am not happy about those either but some of our wins this year were blowouts on some pretty decent teams.
