    Coaching Staff Changes?

    That would assume the move was on Gus’s side and not Horton’s choice. Just saying. For what it’s worth I would not be the least surprised if we moved someone from an off field position at Auburn to the field. I don’t think this was really a strategic move someone considered in a formulated plan.

    qb's - who will start in 2019?

    Not being mean but I’m pretty sure that Cord was pretty high ranked coming out of high school but took the baseball money first. Also Gus has no hesitation in playing him in mop up duty last year. I’m not saying he will be the starter but I am saying folks shouldn’t be writing him off just because it’s been a while since he came out of HS. TIFWIW

    Horton reassigned to off field role

    I don’t expect to see Luper or Trooper. I doubt seriously Gus has any great fondness for them. Expect another Dilly type hire . Low cost and one that will follow orders without discussion. That exactly why Horton is off field until he finds a job he wants.

    All I can say and this is not trying to be a smart butt, but if you for a minute believe Gus’s version of the events that followed the iron bowl then I’m truely sorry for you. Unfortunately Gus does not tell the truth especially when it reflects on him. The stories for the most part were true.

    You are probably right on both, I’m just looking for Gus’s thought on the move.

    May just want to slow down some. I’m not sure CH ever really liked the recruiting part of it.

    And that might not be bad. Kodi might be better set with RBs than WRs. Also with the elite WR talent we have we need to invest in a coach with a strong background especially in extending our route tree from what I’ve seen over the past few years. Don’t want to lose Kodi because he has a great morale factor with these guys. Just think RB will suite him better.

    You know I hadn’t thought about that but you might be exactly right about that. Remember Gus talked about trying to shed some of his HC outside duty to allow for his spending more time involved with the Offense. That said Horton being a senior coach and I think he was at least for a while the Assistant Head Coach. So maybe Coach Horton moving off field to handle a lot of the non-field work might be the idea exactly. Might actually work.

    I think Gus has already tried but not forced the change. He was probably preferred for Hortin to have gotten another gig. So now he will just move to off field position and hopefully get a shot somewhere else. I just hope if Gus goes outside for a new coach it will be one that he is willing to listen to and help him move his offense forward.

    Feeling better about next year

    Why is it every year we go through this about how we can’t teplace a certain player and then sure enough the next year someone comes in and does a fine job. We have for the past several years been constant between # 4 and #12 out of 120+ teams in recruiting D1. This is a pretty solid evidence that we are recruiting the same equivalent talent each year so yes we should be able to replace them. Will freshmen be as good as seniors ? Probably not but that senior was a freshman at one point to. We recruited probably the top WR class last year according to most sites. I’m somewhat baffled by the constant response that we can’t replace a certain player. That pretty much the process in college football. Players come in and then are replaced by younger players down the road. It really isn’t unique. Every team in the country does it.

    Wow you need to get back on your meds there bud. You are clearly the one that needs some help. I’m not going to spend time trying to convince you if anything. I just spoke facts. I know that’s not what you want to hear so why don’t you just mute my remarks and I will yours and we won’t waste others time.

    I don’t know how much you watched the team this year but undoubtedly not a lot. Flash stretched the field quite often . Not many folks in the world much less the SEC that can stay with him.😂

    Ding ding ding we have a winner. You nailed it. Gus has to use his best weapons. Quit going in with a notion that we “must” run the football.

    Gatewood or Willis both have a shot at starting the year. I think Bo is ready wait his turn if necessary but also will be ready to go if needed. I just hope Gus goes into spring with honest intentions to allow the best to rise up and then to make his choice based on the outcome and not by favoritism.

    I like Slayton and wish him the best but Seth, Pickens and Flash will more than cover that slot. Just imagine the fear it will put in defenses to have Seth and George on the outside and Flash in the slot. A nightmare for sure for a defense.
