    SEC Coach Blasts Malzahn

    Let me say I believe Nick is a great coach, he also has more experience than most of not all his predecessors in the league. His process is second to none IMO. But what about the Chargers, suits, gun cases being thrown out, red elephant club, etc....is that all a myth? Anyway Saban has the best three deep depth in the SEC. No one can match it. Now how he builds it vs others is subject to debate. What this quote said about Auburn could be said about any coach in the SEC. Saban has dominated the league, and has also had some favorable luck along the way. He got to play in two title games when he did not even win the conference. Saban can go 11-1 with that one loss to Auburn, rest his team up and off to the playoff. This years east team was legit. Not the sacrificial lambs Saban and Auburn have played in Mizzou and UF. That repeat game in the SEC title vs UGA was tough especially coming off the physical game against Alabama the week before. Nevertheless this article is pointless imo all SEC coaches make championship level money and Gus is the only one in the West who has challenged Saban since Miles left.

    Offense Needs to Change

    Turnovers, poor execution on the offensive line and special teams blunders had a lot to do with that game. The Stidham fumble in the red zone gave UGA some mojo when it appeared if Auburn scores that UGA might pack it in. Not to mention the Bama win although great was a physically daunting game for the players, and then to have to line back up and face UGA again was tough, should have won but tough. UGA was not your normal sacrificial lamb the East has put up in years past. Nevertheless we get to judge all play calls and game plans, etc. in hindsight ..So if it does or did not work we can make an argument of what the team should have done.

    Pettway is a mess

    Pettway was puffing the mary jane before he got to Auburn...it was a choice, not an injury coping mechanism.

    i do believe Gus has set goals for Auburn to be a contending National Championship program....twice in his time at Auburn he has been right there. He does not lack ambition.

    ***2018 NSD Thread (Feb 7th)***

    yeah get rid of one of the only coaches to beat Saban on the field for one that has proven to be a little off beat and still is unproven. I mean he could not win at USC...but anyway this is about recruiting.
  10. welp...i guess it’s a wrap. Maybe Gus should hire a few of you guys to hit the recruiting trail. Auburn will never consistently out recruit the state school in Alabama or Georgia. Too many kids grow up wanting to rep their state. You put good recruiters and coaches like Kirby and Nick and it’s a recipe for recruiting success. However that does not mean Auburn can not compete and beat them on the field. You can’t have a huge gap but you have to recruit top ten, which Auburn has been able to do.
  11. Uga has always been a sleeping giant..:now they have a coach that can leverage the pitch of Georgia pride and staying at home to play. But Auburn can compete and beat them. Some of you act like Auburn should fold up shop and cancel football.
  12. if that’s the case everybody else including UGA lagged behind. I do believe Auburn has the talent to be compete and beat them both again next season. All three teams lose players at key positions and have unknown and unproven players replacing them. Offensive line will be key for Auburn, but having Grimes back should help since he has been with Gus before.
