  1. Let's hope he isn't let go when Gus is. And before y'all freak out, I'm not saying anything that any recruit isn't already hearing everywhere else.

    Could Gus be a good CEO coach?

    *resisting sudden urge to bareback shave with a straight razor, prune an entire jungle with some sort of crazy machine gun, and tell jokes where the punchline is "Mine's as big as a house!"*

    For those who have never seen me and 72 embrace in a POWER FLEX MAN GRASP, this is exactly what it looks like. One time we broke a lamp that was clear across the room. We're more careful when we do it now. No kids allowed in the room, obviously.

    Could Gus be a good CEO coach?

    Possibly the one and only thing that we all completely agree on.

    Could Gus be a good CEO coach?

    No, I'm not here because I claim not to care what people have to say about things. And if I want to say things without the possibility of a negative response, I will likely say them somewhere other than an internet message board.

    Then why are you on a message board?

    If you could have one Non-Auburn player...

    Troy Smith. Would've taken over in 2005 as a junior. We were very, very close in 2005 and 2006. Cox was a stud and a gamer but Troy Smith was a Heisman winner. Ohio State got stomped in the 2006 (2007) BCSCG by a team we beat, which means that even if we still drop the Arkansas game that year, we go to Atlanta and have a chance of being in that game instead of UF. And if we seal the deal in '05 or '06 after that 2004 season, we're suddenly in a much different conversation. Or maybe that just makes Tubs more complacent and even more susceptible to the saban/meyer/Miles onslaught to follow. But at least we get that 'ship and maybe another statue outside JHS.

    Can't make this up

    My issue with Clark is that he doesn't have a lot of experience and hasn't spent time learning big time football under big time coaches. He very well could be another Gus in the early stages of his career.

    First, I'm not arguing in favor of Clark. I don't know how I feel about him. But I don't think you can really point to SOS or any other metric without taking the full scope of the programs into consideration. 6-6? That was their best record since 2004. Funny you said "high water marks and droughts". UAB had a 2 year drought after that where they literally didn't even exist. They went 8-4 last year in their first year back after 2 years of not even having a football program. And that was a new record for wins as an FBS program. And they've already set the new record this season at 9 with 2 regular season games to play. Flavor of the week? Bill Clark has steadily been rewriting that program's history each season since he's been there. He's redefining what is possible for UAB football. And they keep getting better under him. None of these things are true about Gus. He won big in year 1 and the program has been mediocre each season since except for one month last season. I would argue that 2 of the previous 4 coaches at Auburn were better. It's arguable that Terry Bowden was as good. Bill Clark is the best coach in UAB history. And he's better in year 3/5 than he was in year 1. Does any of this mean Clark can handle the Auburn job? Nope. But within the parameters of their respective jobs, Clark is a much better coach than Gus. Oh, regarding SOS: we beat Southern Miss by 11 and UAB beat them by 3. We both played at home. I could see Auburn- 90,000 seat stadium, preseason top 10, reigning SEC West champion- beating UAB by 7-10 points at home. Sure.

    Probably commensurate with the strength of available resources.

    Deshaun Davis on fake FG

    What's ironic is that complaining about late trick plays and throat slash gestures is suuuuuuuuuuch a uga thing to do.

    Not to mention that stadium is at elevation and Mexico City suffers from absolutely brutal air pollution. It's a horrible place for any sporting event, unless you play for Mexico's national soccer team.
