  1. 8-4 is the absolute best record we could *possibly* finish with - including a win against a beatable UGA team. looks like 5-7 from where I sit, though.

    When and when not to look for the ball.

    Having read most of the replies and seen a couple clips from mistakes being made, it would appear that the corners in question relied on talent over technique. Mental lapse or not, the two players I saw that put themselves in poor positions have played too much football to be making those types of errors: J Davis and J Dean. But I can’t say I blame them, they both run like scalded dogs.

    First offensive play of the season

    Screen to RD, gain of 2-3.
  4. Keep in mind, too, that the 5 that start against UW likely won’t be the 5 that face UGA and UAT. Injuries, poor play and Nick Brahms getting healthy will make a difference as the year goes on.

    2018 Fall Camp - Final Scrimmage

    Harold Joiner, you say? Interesting. He could be a difference-maker, but didn’t expect to hear his name till 2019.
  6. Great episode. Really glad to hear that Coach Grimes loves Driscoll. A lot riding on his shoulders this season.

    2018 Fall Camp - Assistant Coaches Interviews

    Dare I say... Everyone is pulling in the same direction? From AD down to the players? I’m Ron Burgundy?
  8. Spoke with coach Floyd at the Trussville Chamber today, asked him about Ja’Varrius. Nothing earth-shattering, but he laughed at the fact he’s ranked 113th (IIRC) at WR and 40-something in the state overall. He said there’s hardly 20-25 WRs better than him in the country, much less 110+. He said that AU keeps comparing him to Ryan Davis, and Floyd agrees. He said Ja’Varrius can fly, but what separates him is his catching and ball skills. He said most guys his size and position are just water bugs that dance and juke, but he’s a complete receiver... just in 5’9 175lb body. Expecting to get him the ball early and often this season.

    All Things Shaun "Worm" Shivers (merged threads)

    .... do tell! Hope to see Shaun opening weekend against UW. Don’t think they’d know what hit them.

    RB order taking shape

    Knowing Gustav’s desire to truly trust a player, I’m not sure Asa will be the guy. 2019 and beyond, sure, but I think he wants to keep the ball in the hands of that guy(s) that have proven their reliability. By his freshman nature, he hasn’t been able to do that yet. Who knows, I’ve been wrong a couple times.

    Thanks for spending some time with us, Momma Worm. Auburn Football will benefit on and off the field from a young man like Shaun being enrolled. Weagle Weagle.

    2019 4* OG/OT William Putnam

    we’re gonna need FSU to drop 4-5 while we go 11-1 or 12-0, from my point of view. not out of it though.
  13. i’m not, and i’m not the arguing type... but i guess we’ll see over the next 2-3 years. he’s an all-SEC talent.
  14. got it sourced that at least one SEC school shares my concerns. his weight could be an issue if not managed closely.
  15. million dollar question: does he play at or below his current weight? or does he balloon up to 350+ like some fear he may. if the kid controls his size, he’ll be an animal for us. if not, he’ll be Eric Mack 2.0.
