    You're trying to trick me into googling "East Carolina finger hook", aren't you? NOT TODAY, MY FRIEND. I might ask the boys down on the docks later, though.

    Bowl Game: vs TT or Purdue

    Man. How does an offense without a major injury not improve. In year 6. It just doesn't make any sense at all.
  3. It's really fun to watch Chiefs games these days for 2 reasons: 1) Holy offense, Batman 2) Dee Ford's name is said at least once every series and sometimes twice in obvious passing situations Now, I think he might benefit from opponents having to throw a lot to try to keep up with the Chiefs offense, but he's making the most of the opportunity. So happy for him. One of the good guys for sure. War Damn Double Dees

    Bowl Game: vs TT or Purdue

    And 0-3 against Mississippi State, Tennessee and Ed Orgeron this season. "Winnable" is either a very high or a very low bar this season, depending on how you look at it.

    Bowl Game: vs TT or Purdue

    Houston's more than twice as far away. Might be looking at flights vs buses for the team. School might save some money going to Jacksonville. But then it looks like the Texas Bowl might pay out twice as much? Whichever one gives the players the best gift bags I guess. From a fan's perspective: Money/logistics no object, give me Houston. One of the best food cities in the country. Money/logistics an object, pack the jorts and take me to Jax. I can't really formulate opinions or emotions about the actual opponent/game.

    Serious discussion

    Agree. I would LOVE for this program to be an incubator for coaching talent. I would LOVE to look across the CFB landscape and see former Auburn assistants succeeding at higher positions elsewhere. That's actually the recipe for most successful programs.

    I absolutely wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors. Also, I hope those future endeavors begin as soon as possible. I mean the guy no malice or ill will but I want our football team to start a new chapter ASAP.

    Nah, man. I don't "pull for" the Irish but I have some alumni as friends and I really respect their whole thing. And that campus is really cool.

    My sis-in-law is a Pirate, but I hadn't heard No Quarter! before. I like that.

    Hear, hear. Those are real, genuine college football fans. I knew before I moved to SC that I would have to pull Cocks (heh) if forced to choose.
  11. We do. At least one IMO. Probably more. Not enough, though. We don't have the Jimmies, Joes, Xs or Os...

    Out of likes, but I tried on this one. I agree about Clark's lack of pedigree. 100%.

    Could Gus be a good CEO coach?

    I agree with your point, but I'll mention that our offense got a lot better in 2016 after he handed play calling duties 100% over to Rhett. If not for injuries, we might've won something that year and Rhett might still be here or might've left for a relatively high profile job instead of how it did happen.

    Yeah. I would normally argue against that 185 thing, but we might be a little gun shy ATM on guys who aren't already closer to that big build. As for the 210 thing, no, this league doesn't require it.

    Trap game for Auburn? Between unranked Arkansas and unranked Mississippi State? That might not hold water even if we'd looked remotely prepared for MSU. Besides, you're replying to one small anecdote picked from a lot of more meaningful information. We've meandered far away from the point. No, UAB couldn't compete against AU's schedule. But it's just as valid to point out that Gus couldn't recruit nearly the caliber of athlete or assistant coach at UAB that he can at AU. And it's very much up for debate as to whether or not he could replicate Clark's success there. Now, someone might be tempted to mention Arkansas State. I'm not going to do too much research into that, but I did already know that Gus inherited the QB described below and a very, very healthy Red Wolves team from Hugh Freeze: "Enters senior season with 16 school records to his credit, including eight season, five single-game and three career marks that stand atop the most successful in ASU history . . . In just three seasons Aplin has broken the school record for career completions (633) . . . Currently second all-time at ASU in career total offense (8,734) and passing yards (7,416), third in passing touchdowns (43) and fifth in rushing touchdowns (25) . . . ...Enters his senior season as the conferences fourth all-time leader in total offense, completions and passing yards . . . Nation's fifth leading player in career passing yards and completions and fourth leading player in career total offense among current players . . . USA‚ÄąToday Preseason Sun Belt Conference Player of the Year . . . Athlon's, Blue Ribbon College Yearbook, Phil Steele's Preseason First Team All-Sun Belt Conference . . . Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award Watch List . . . Manning Award Watch List . . . Walter Camp Watch List."

    That's a really good point. Ben Tate came from Maryland. (Eddie Gran, please come back.) Mike Dyer came from Arkansas, which almost didn't even count as out of state for us for several years. Tre and Shivers came from South Florida, but those guys were both under-recruited because of their size. Other than that, it's almost all AL, GA or under-recruited JUCO guys (CAP).
  17. It was my biggest concern going into the season and it was way worse than I feared. 2010: Ryan Pugh. 4th year starter, All-SEC 2013: Reese Dismukes. 3rd year starter, All-SEC, won the Rimington the following year We've been playing catch-up ever since Dismukes left.
  18. It's a football message board and that is the summary of the season. I'll give you the basketball forum, although it's hard to look at what Bruce Pearl is doing and not wonder what the hell is going on with football. But I will do my level best not to ever mention Gus's name over there. It seems like a happy place and we should keep it that way.

    12 years in ATL and the way they still whine about Cam and Nick did it for me. They're pathetic.

    2014: AU 41 LSU 7 Following week, we lose to Mississippi State by 15. We get dragged by uga and lose to bama even after scoring 44 points. 2015: We win 2 SEC games- Kentucky and TAMU 2016: After 2 horrible losses through the first 3 games, we go on an amazing tear through as soft a stretch of SEC games as we'll ever play. We score 19 total points and lose both games in Amen Corner and then get humiliated by Oklahoma in the bowl game. 2017: The first 9 games of the season are very similar, but then we annihilate Amen Corner. The bus never arrives in Atlanta and then we get beat by UCF in the bowl game. 2018:
  21. I guess we don't have to worry about the "why'd you have to bring up Gus" posts in other threads now. Excellent.
  22. Year 6. How is the roster not Gus's fault? How is JB Grimes not Gus's fault? How was Herb Hand not Gus's fault? How is mediocre or worse QB play for most of the last 4 years not Gus's fault? You had a good post going for a minute. Oh well.
