  1. The most difficult schedule in 2018

    It works both ways though. AU is also the only team in the country that can still be in the playoff picture with two losses going into UGA/bama. I would still be in favor of moving it though. Maybe we should just game plan better for SEC Champ game.
  2. NCAA Looking at Changing Transfer Rules

    Just go to a high school draft and be done. Not that I want it, but some form of this has to be coming anyway. Another thread perhaps
  3. NCAA Looking at Changing Transfer Rules

    Very good thread, but I've read "kids", and "endured servant" in this debate. How long before someone starts to type "children", or even more ridiculous? Fully support Gus on this.
  4. 2016 Summer Workouts (VIDEO)

    Did any of those remind you of the "Spies Like Us" exercises? The hands up one was definitely GLG20.
  5. Fall Camp - Saturday Practice Update (8/20/16)

    AU had the 6th most-talented team in the nation last year. Just to pile on...when AU first went to Under Armor....that visor was the pinnacle of headwear. $26, but through 100's of rounds of golf in the AL sun, never showed fading. Now you can only buy a visor where the sides basically cover the whole head. It's like a reverse yamaka.
  6. Fall Camp - Saturday Practice Update (8/20/16)

    What is up with that shirt pattern? I cannot believe he came to an interview with a straight face. Does he not have handlers?
  7. Things Bama Fans Are Saying...

    This is one of the most annoying things about Bammers. They deck their entire car or single wide out in Bama gear. I have an AU Alumni sticker in the lower rear window of my car. That's all it takes to show you're a fan. And it's not obnoxious. Someone ask the owner what year he graduated. ;D/> I did. he said "Huh?" I asked a Bama fan that question one time. He asked me why Auburn fans always ask him that. Did not know they gave handicapped tags to the mentally disabled.
  8. AU's NFL Pro Day

    AU would win more games with combine wonders than combine wonder less. I doubt that can be debated. This thread has been awesome. For the record, I did it 6 times last Wed, and a 56 yr old scheduler from my mill 5 times. Of course, I'm a hard-drinking smoker. Change was needed (not debatable), and change happened. Also noticed jokesercise has not yet been picked up by a college or NFL team. Unless I missed it.
  9. Can we all agree on one thing?

    Outside of some very "boom" hires, the next coach will be on the hotseat from day one. Unlike some, I think it will be a long rebuilding process.
  10. Research firm calling AU Alumni

    It's not about a coach leaving a school for me. It's about their word and the breaking of contracts. If Gary Patterson is interviewing for jobs I could only hope that he has the blessing from TCU. There is a big difference in doing things the right way and doing things behind someones back. It's about wins and losses. I'd love it if it was all magic unicorns, but both coaches and administrations lie. How much, now that is seriously splitting hairs. I'd like cbp, so it would show some AU fans that, we are putting football 1st. Seems some got their wish, minus 5-19, but could be a good AU man, some say he still is, and that turned out beyond bad. Big-time cBP supporter, but I'm now moving Jim Levitt to #1, much for the same reasons. I think he would do better.
  11. Effect of shootings on players

    So what were the problems last year? Maybe the players did not work out because they knew there was a tragedy about to happen. This must be part of that new America or that new parenting, where it's nobody's fault. If anything, this shooting was not suprising, given everthing else that happened on xcgc's watch.
  12. Sporting News' Opinion on Auburn Hiring Petrino

    Problem with AU ball right there. You already have the losing part, what next?
  13. Sporting News' Opinion on Auburn Hiring Petrino

    I almost get the feeling like those that do not have AU's best interests are turning BP away from AU. AL media and SEC office. Just a feeling no proof. It would show them we are not bowing down to their wishes. Recruiting short term would be questionable, and I respect those who have that opinion. I do want BP to be hired, but only after we make about 5 phone calls and pony up all kinds of $$. I actually want a call to be made to saban's agent and make him say no.
  14. Malzahn the likely replacement

    If that is the case, why not let GM coach O & D? I think Saban would destroy GM, but if AU wants to cast their lot with Gus, I'd support it.
  15. Current Players Support Chizik

    ok My guess is you are part of the problem. Nice avatar, but this team has no fight at all.
  16. Current Players Support Chizik

    I know this does not matter, but when I went from freshman to varsity, all they did was line up garbage cans for the players to throw up in. You went on or did not. Players left in aubulance. That was the early 1990's. Prob be put in jail today.

    Like someone else posted, it was the greatest game I've ever seen, but at the same time, I'm baffled/mad at how far AU has dropped. As much as it pains me, UaT has actually gotten better. I just hope that 2, 5, 10 years from now, someone writes a book that says how it all fell apart.
  18. New Mexico State game for Directv subscribers

    I got DTV channel 696 turned on for 7.99. Have to cancel it on 12/1, or it will be a monthly charge.
  19. Comparing Auburn to Ole Miss?

    haha good question. Ole Miss cleaned house in the athletic program, I believe they still have the same Chancellor that banned all the traditional Ole Miss stuff though. I got a blue screen when I posted this, and posted the same thing in another thread, so mods/posters forgive. Message is the same. Col Reb...I'm crying.
  20. It's time to shake all this off...

    Agreed. My dad once told me (a Yankee, but thought w/ole miss was fitting) that no matter who you cheer for on TV, it has very little affect. I told my K-State golfing buddy that the Ole Miss mascot fiasco would destroy that team, and now we are not going to be competative against them. WTH happened to this team?
  21. Comparing Auburn to Ole Miss?

    I once told my K-state golfing buddy that Ole Miss would't survive the mascot fiasco, and now AU is worried about being beat by Ole Miss. WTH happened?
  22. Best Case Scenario

    It's like someone made a deal with the devil. "Listen....I'll let you win a MNC, but you are going into the abyss of CFB after that". Abyss might be too kind of a word. Nothing has gone right since that last kick in AZ.
  23. As a coach...

    2004ish everyone thought we were "juiced" and had larger players than everyone else. Today, I think we are smaller than most teams we play. Has strength and conditioning evolved? Are we not keeping up? I have one friend who was able to go to a fall practice and a HS coach, he said it looked like the entire team had not touched a weight all summer. I don't know as I'm not into exercise science.
  24. From The Bleacher Report

    Yep. It's going to happen next year anyway. (CGC fired)
  25. **Arkansas at Auburn Game Thread**

    Sadly you are right. CGC will be fired next yr anyway. Why wait? Lost at home We'll be the 1st team to ever finish 7th in the west.
