  1. Ikr....it may not be up 100% up to Gus...I am sure he wants one of his most talented players back by fall. What coach would not? I see no problem with his answer. If KD he does not show up for fall (which I hope he does because he is an elite talent) but if not then next man up.....
  2. I always here this...do some ever think kids just prefer other schools over Auburn. What else do you think Auburn could have done...pay him? Just because he did not choose Auburn does not mean Gus and staff were sitting on their hands. If they were he may have never visited....
  3. No one took his free speech...they could have met at huddle house or a lot off campus. They only cancelled him because of the security threat...maybe another wack job called in a bomb threat or something. If his rhetoric was not so hateful he could have stood a chance. All he does is cause divide in a country where we should all be united.
  4. I agree and I don't think he wants one either....he may just settle down in AU and head into retirement at some point..
  5. How old is Big Al as it relates to Kevin Steele or Greg Brown? His age will not be a factor, I just don't this his overall philosophy will work with what Gus may want in his offense....but stranger things have happened..especially in Auburn. This hire of Borges proves that, because I don't think anyone saw this coming.
  6. Key thing I read ..."he will work under Chip as an analyst" could he possibly fill Chips shoes if he gets a mid major level offer after one year at AU....
  7. Stidham throws a nice ball...looks effortless
  8. I mean nobody writes off players quicker than AUFAMILY members...I mean nobody.
  9. Exactly....It's not like Gus went Coach Kline with him and said visualize and attack. Then sat on the sideline. He utilized his skill set and put him in a position to be successful in a short period of time. Good job IMO.
  10. I think so many go with what ever beat it is....but I guess not living up to expectations opens the door for a lot of criticism, some fair some not. Gus with all his perceived stubbornness, etc., still has led some of if not the most prolific offenses in Auburn history. I personally don't think JJ had it upstairs, and he just put way too much pressure on himself. The inexcusable turnovers were his biggest problem. He threw some picks and he was not being pressured at all..clean pocket and everything. There were times he looked scared as crap out there. I mean they teach you in HS to throw it away and not to the other team. As for route trees I had not seen that word around here until one of Auburn's WRS vying for an NFL roster was criticized for coming from this offense. Now everyone is a route tree expert and want to question routes in this offense. No one was questioning route trees in 2010 or 2013 cause AU was winning. As for Gus, his hands will be on this offense...Chip may have the keys but Gus is riding shotgun for sure. It's wishful thinking to believe he will not.
  11. So based on some JJ has no accountability ..I love the kid he is from my hometown but I don't think Gus or Rhett told him to throw it directly to the other team, or let his own feet tackle him, or not protect the ball in the pocket....he has talent I just think it's mental, he get scared out there. I mean he had several chances at redemption to prove everyone wrong but he still made the same big mistake...throwing the ball to the other team....and the defensive player did not have to work hard all they had to do was stand there and catch it.
  12. I am confused ...so Marshall took a beating because Jovon was dating someone's wife...or did Jovon beat up Marshall...and either way he left him without seeking medical attention
  13. Unlike some I see both sides of the coin and appreciate Gus leaving it up to his OC. As an OC, Gus just has a different view point and preferred to keep his guys in house.
  14. I agree but how can anyone fairly criticize another schools efforts particularly Auburn if Bama and the REC have this perceived power. Does that not make the playing field fair? How can a school fairly compete with them in all aspects of the game?
  15. Exactly all the top 4 from last year got great play from the QB position and their main guy stayed healthy all season.
