  1. I noticed that, and was thinking the same thing. Lol On another note, these kids sure look good on highlight tapes, let's hope he looks good on the field, against SEC defenses. He was a five star, and played well as a freshman at Baylor, so we should be fine. After KF and JJ, I'm not overly confident but again, we should be OK. Maybe for every KF and JJ at Auburn, there will be a Cam and Nick!
  2. Clemson was a debacle, in other games mentioned, Sean was hurt.
  3. Please don't take this the wrong way, we disagree here it goes: In comparing Apples with Apples, Gus has consistently developed some of the top QB's in the game. One of your freak athletes was told by Urban Meyer himself, that his best way to making it, in major college football and in the NFL, was as a tight end. Meyer has a few rings and completely missed this one, that Gus nailed! Another freak athlete that wasn't even drafted as a QB but as a DB, was developed into a SEC winning quarterback, and what would've been a national championship quarterback, if not for the defense and special teams play, in the national championship game. If you care to, you may want to check the defensive side of the ball on those 8-5 teams, with our record setting, non-freak athletes at QB. On a sidenote, how well did Lefty do, developing QB's after Gus left?
  4. Sean White, Chris Todd, Paul Smith and others were freak athletes? Sean White - Sean White is backing up his reputation as the steady hand to lead Auburn's offense by being remarkably efficient. The redshirt-sophomore leads the SEC in completion percentage (68.5) and passer efficiency (159.0), ranking eighth and twelfth nationally, respectively. Chris Todd - AUBURN, Ala. -- Auburn quarterback Chris Todd set the school's single-season record with his 21st touchdown pass of the season. Todd set the record with his second TD pass of the day, a 72-yard bomb to Darvin Adamsearly in the second quarter. He came in one behind the record set by Pat Sullivan in 1971 and tied by Jason Campbell five years ago. Todd tied the mark with a 1-yarder to Eric Smith in the first quarter. Auburn managed a total of seven touchdown passes last season, but Todd has thrived in Gus Malzahn's offense. Paul Smith - With Malzahn running the Golden Hurricane offense, Smith passed for 5,065 yards and 47 touchdowns. He finished second in yards and touchdowns to Texas Tech’s Graham Harrell and was named the Conference USA Player of the Year. Smith also set—and still holds—the NCAA record for most games gaining 300 yards or more with 14. David Johnson - Malzahn’s second quarterback at Tulsa, David Johnson, was a Davey O’Brien semifinalist in 2008. Johnson went 258-of-400 for 4,059 yards, 46 touchdowns and 18 interceptions as a senior in ’08. His quarterback rating of 178.7 was second only to Oklahoma’s Sam Bradford. Ryan Aplin - Ryan Aplin was the starting quarterback at Arkansas State during Malzahn’s single season as the Red Wolves’ head coach. As a senior in 2012, Aplin went 276-of-406 (68 percent) for 3,342 yards, 24 touchdowns and only four interceptions. His completion percentage ranked No. 10 in the FBS. He led Arkansas State to a 10-3 finish, including a second straight conference title and the first bowl win in program history. Aplin earned Sun Belt player of the year honors in both 2011 and 2012 and just finished his first season as an administrative intern with Ole Miss.
  5. I've lived all over the world. Not just visited but lived. Most Auburn people are more moral and different. Sorry if you disagree.
  6. Wow, just wow! I guess this is where we are as a society. I thought Auburn was different.
  7. I guess there is only so many AD's Jacobs gets along with.
  8. Good to hear!
  9. Wonder why Marsh left.... Oh, never mind.
  10. I'll give it a shot...Just guessing but possibly REC behind this, to make it tougher for new Pres to fire him?
  11. He looks like a human Road-grader out there. So good to see!
  12. http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/columnist/martin-rogers/2017/02/23/jameis-winston-tampa-bay-buccaneers/98303116/ Jameis Winston delivers wrong message to kids “But the ladies, they’re supposed to be silent, polite, gentle. My men, my men (are) supposed to be strong. I want y’all to tell me what the third rule of life is: I can do anything I put my mind to.” Notice the problem here? Let’s start with the fact that at last check the calendar currently reads 2017, not 1947. Part of the message was wonderful. If educators, society and mentors are doing their job properly, then youngsters should feel they are capable of anything. The rest of it? Completely cringe-worthy. Boys can have deep voices, and that is just fine. They can talk loudly and boldly. But they’re not “supposed to,” not any longer. And if they do happen to be soft-spoken, they’re not “supposed to” be different. As for what message it sends about females, phew, where to start? Hey girls, sit down. Be quiet. Not just quiet, silent. And the bit about being able to do whatever you put your mind to. Yeah, that doesn’t apply to you. Ouch. Jumping back into the time-machine and returning to the present, Winston tried to explain it all away. Frankly, the explanation has degree of plausibility and doesn’t immediately smack of damage control.
