  1. end the hot seat talk

    And since gus hired each of the coordinators, which everyone seems to like, and recruited the entire current team, which everyone seems to be impressed with ........ oh, never mind. My head hurts.

    1) it’s uat 2) they stand in the way of the sec playoff 3) they stand in the way of the national championship 4) I don’t want to wait 5 weeks to see au play again 6) it’s uat
  3. Arkansas wants Gus

    Totally agree.
  4. Path to a National Title

    I keep hearing the analysts say the same narrative over and over: 1) the lsu loss was.self-inflected/lesson-learned game, we dominated game and then..... Brain fart that we grew from. AU has completely transformed its psyche since then. No longer the same team 2) Clemson is Clemson, at Clemson, it was early, and we hadn't figured out how to leverage stidham yet in our offense. No longer the same team Bottom line: our 2 losses seem to looked at as not as badly as other teams losses. Almost as if we're not a 2 loss team ps the other thing that's consistently implied is that they see Gus as a innovator/genius, who sometimes gets a few squirrels running around in his head

    Scary amount of love.

    Yep, and nobody makes crazy sound better and more rational than we do either.

    I've been frustrated, mad, and I'm sure will be at times in the future. Gus is smart, innovative, quirky, stubborn, and flawed. And he'll sometimes break your heart. He's in the same state with the most dominant recruiting machine in a generation, probably ever. UAT has become the preeminent NFL farm system - loaded and dominant (also cold and joyless). Even harder, in a state that doesn't have near the population or amount talent of Georgia, Texas, or fla, Gus has found a way to stay top 5-10 in recruiting. Consistently. I get that he starts the season slow, struggles with quarterbacks (though this seems to be the norm these days), goes way too conservative with a lead, and can be predictable with play-calling. He can and I believe will self correct these quirks (i.e. he didn't used to see defense as a priority). In my experience, if he was dumb or non creative - that's would kinda be a much bigger problem.... Bottom line - I stayed on bus, been driven crazy many times on it, but on it for the long haul.
  8. Gus

    A year ago some fans would have killed for jimbo, 2 months ago mullen, 2 days ago Kirby, 2 weeks from now kiffin. I accepted long ago many just work that way, which is fine and make this forum fun sometimes. It's always wrapped up in some sort of fuzzy logic-speak, a couple of facts, and saying we should demand excellence. So fire em all. But it's gets scary when they actually try to force decisions or policy. Can there be peace for a least at little while before gus just quits to escape this? Congrats Gus! Beat Bama!
  9. Gus would be wise to look around

    Some feel that firing someone requires testerone or something. Firing someone is the easiest, often wimpiest decision management ever makes. It's a classic. Looks decisive and buys you 2 years. Problem is, then the two years comes. I can tell you the hardest decision is holding on to someone you believe in and taking the crap. There has to be someone actually, factually better available and initially identified, otherwise it's just expensive manipulation. Half of these posts are ready, fire, aim.
  10. Gus would be wise to look around

    it's becoming obvious that the uat phenenom is beginning to drive the entire sec crazy and weaken it structurally. And since we're in the same state..... We're 2 years away from everyone grovelling to get the most recent Saban assistant. We haven't even played the games yet and we're doing this crap about losing scenarios to fire our coach. And we're still in the hunt for the playoffs. No matter how many Gus can't win the big games dissertations/rationalizations I read, it's obvious saban has gotten into our heads.

    The ultimate irony would be if Gus ends the season strong and leaves for an opening at UF, tamu, etc, and we end up in a bidding war for lashlee.

    I think the point is maybe it’s not time to make a decision. Thats what December’s for. November will potentially prove the-voice-of-reason/prophets-of-the-apocolypse right or the dense, hopelessly-clueless/sunshine pumpers (yep, Thats me) right. I guess if people from both sides want to keep repeating the same old facts from years past, before this actually plays out. Enjoy your hobby.
  14. #10 in Latest AP Poll

    Nope I was here. And meant to put that one on the list. It’s a top 3 most repeated. Got it. Both sides have valid points, it’s not mind bending stuff. Decision time will come. Between now and then, let’s just watch, worry, hope, and root!!! WDE

    If some people have already made their minds up that Gus is gone. I get it. Cut bait, just prolonging inevitable, can't change/evolve, can't grow quarterbacks, outdated scheme, panics at game time. Ect. I get it. But repeating the same exact points, hundreds of times, in hundreds of threads kinda seems like a poor use of personal time. Ps I think the odds are against us trading up especially this year, and could set us back tremendously. But that's just my 2 cents. Who knows. To the fire Gus crowd. We hear you (and hear you), youve made your same points so many times that we can all repeat them in our sleep. But for one week we're in the damn top 10 and have a ridicously remote chance at something pretty special. Dear lord can you enjoy this for one friggin week and let's see where this goes?
