  1. It's not so much that Asa is transferring. I'm really not surprised he is. I hate to see him go but wish him the best. To me it just shows once again this offensive staff seems to have no plan, strategy, or competency. The guy enrolled early, went thru Spring training, played in 4 games, and this staff still can't determine whether this kid will be able to contribute this year or how he might fit into the offense? Wasted a year of this kid's eligibility for nothing.
  2. I apologize to you McLoofus. I may have misunderstood your comment, but I do think you hit the nail on the head. A lot of sharp edges, raw nerves, and frustration these days. I did not conduct myself as a very good Auburn man. Elvis has not left the building, and Alaska is too cold for me. "I'll have a blue and orange Christmas without you. I'll be so blue and orange just thinking about AU football. Gus'll be doin' all right with his cash and Audi coupe, but I'll have a blue and orange off season."
  3. Oooh. Now my feelings are hurt and I"m crying because I'm a crybaby. I've completely changed my view on Gus because of you. What was I thinking as I've sat in JH on numerous occasions and felt that maybe, just maybe, Gus was in over his head. I am now totally fine with the way Gus has run our football program and I hope he never leaves. Thank you so much for showing me the way. Elvis has left the building and heading for Alaska. I'll send you a postcard. WDE!
  4. "There are any number of possible reasons for playing a kid in five or more games that don't involve "botching" a redshirt year." Yeah. It sounds like Asa's mom totally agrees with your statement. And I'm sure she appreciates being ignored by the coaching staff. Thanks, but I'll pass on the property in Kansas. I'd rather have some ocean front property in Montana.
  6. Sorry. Haven't read all the posts since my first post. Agree with you on development, or lack there of.
  7. Maybe the "experience" thing can be overrated, but how many freshman QB's has Gus recruited, signed, developed and had success with while at Auburn?
  8. Best of luck to Stidham. So if we don't get Bryant or some other transfer we will start next season with a QB with basically little to no college experience. Can anyone say "player development?" Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?
  9. Here's a copy of the email I sent to Leath this morning. As soon as he sees it I'm SURE changes will be made (yes, I'm being sarcastic!). If nothing else it made me feel better! Dr. Leath, Let me start off by saying I am not a big time booster or some "big wig," but I am an Auburn graduate (class of 1987), and have been an AU fan all my life. My father (Class of 1949) grew up in Auburn and spent his adult life in Mobile where I was raised. I'm a "cradle" Auburn fan and love Auburn University. Auburn University is NOT all about Auburn football, but football is a powerful marketing tool and exposes Auburn to national recognition. Something you don't seem to understand. I am amazed at the complete lack of competency you have shown in the last 12 months. To offer Gus that kind of contract, especially with that kind of buyout, was down right stupid. It shows that you either didn't understand how coaches contracts work, or you were highly influenced by the BOT, and probably one BOT member in particular. Secondly, the way you have handled the situation the past week or so is, quite frankly, unacceptable. All you had to do was make a statement and let the Auburn folks know what the hell was going on. Instead you scurried out of town and left Harbert in charge and shut out our Athletic Director. That shows me you don't have the guts to handle the position you are in nor stand behind difficult decisions that have to be made. I will continue to love and support Auburn University, but I will not support the bumbling incompetent "leadership" (and I use that term loosely) that is currently in place and supposedly making decisions based on what is best for the University, the Alumni, and general supporters of the University.
  10. Agree but I'm just saying we keep him at Iowa State! 😄
  11. Can we just put a ban on hiring anyone that has ties to Iowa State?
  12. If he wasn't ready to contribute then why did he play in 5 games and burn a year?
  13. Ask Asa Martin. He got totally screwed this year. If Gus is coming back he needs to turn on the heated seats in his Audi sports car and leave them on so he can get used to being in the hot seat.
  14. I don't think it'll matter who is on the offensive staff until Gus fully commits to getting out of the way and letting the offensive coaches do their jobs, and I've seen nothing to convince me that Gus will ever do that.
  15. This is one of my biggest knocks on Gus and his offensive staff. They NEVER make adjustments. The others are not playing to your strengths (we all knew O line and RB were questionable and were not considered strengths this year) and not developing players (especially QB's). I don't know if it's from just plain stubbornness or ignorance or both.
