    My wife's first trip to the plains...

    Teach her Bodda Getta and make sure you're in the stadium for the eagle flying!

    Clemson Grad Transfer QB Kelly Bryant

    That is a good question. I was under the impression that he would be eligible next year, but I have no real basis in why I think that. Can anyone clear this up?

    Clemson Grad Transfer QB Kelly Bryant

    SDS already speculating that it's between us and the porkers. Considering the state of affairs in Fayettevillle and him having one year of eligibility (is that correct?), I think we have a much better shot. https://www.saturdaydownsouth.com/sec-football/2-sec-fan-bases-are-pleading-for-recent-clemson-qb-commit-kelly-bryant-on-twitter/ Of course, SDS is an SEC oriented site so it's possible he goes somewhere else. Who else is in need of a QB next year and where he can immediately be successful? Nebraska? UCLA? Penn State?

    Jordan-Hare Stadium Renovation

    I'm more partial to this, but I'd happily take either one!

    Jordan-Hare Stadium Renovation

    Can we just brick off the north and south ends please?? Anyone in construction that could guesstimate the cost of doing that?

    Plenty of tickets for Arkansas

    Gah, me too! My girlfriend, born and raised in Connecticut, LOVED Auburn (and the south in general) last week at the LSU game. She'd be so excited for a night game and a chance to roll Tommer's. On the bright side, she wants to go to a game at JHS each season and is now actively interested in watching AU games with me in the fall. ?

    The anti-bash Gus Thread

    Like others have said, we have the toughest HC job in the country with our main rivals being Bama and UGA. I think people do not realize how easily we could wind up like UF or UT and have a decade + of mediocrity. Gus has made us a consistent top 25 pretty much every year, and often we are a top 10 or even top 5 team. We have to let him further develop (look at Dabo). If we call for the head of every HC after a disappointing loss, it will just make it that much harder for us to recruit a quality coach in the future. If our offense can't get it going this season, Gus needs to find a new OC. This will probably be super controversial, but what does everyone think about Hugh Freeze as our OC in the future if things don't work out with Chip?

    Not liking this new 4 game rule

    I see where you are coming from, OP. It sucks about NCM. It sucks a lot. However, this can also help us with getting quality transfers in the future. Keep in mind that all teams are in this boat together. WDE

    Question about Gus and play design

    Yeah, this year it has been our relatively weak Oline as well as JS not having very good pocket presence. He does not go through his progressions and gets spooked WAY too easily. If a D lineman is getting blocked past him on his left, he immediately takes off to the right. Our O-line has been pretty decent at pass protection, it's just the running game they can't get the push. JS needs to trust his O-line in passing situations and spend 1-2 more seconds in the pocket. Just my 2c.

    Just hope we can tighten up the o-line by the time we play this one.

    2018: AU vs. LSU Kickoff Set

    Sorry to bump an old thread, but I have a question that doesn't warrant creating a new one. Like my post above says, I'm going to this game with my CT born and raised girlfriend--and it'll be my first time in JHS since 2004. We need AU pom poms! Does anyone know where I can order them online? If I bought them on game-day, I imagine I'd just stop in Anders or J&M right? We are staying in ATL and renting a car to drive down Saturday morning, checking out the tailgate scene (not that I know anyone there anymore ☹️), and I was going to show her Toomers, parts of campus, my old Apt, downtown Auburn, and stop into Anders and J&M. That's obviously a lot to do before game time, but at least we will gain an hour crossing time zones. I'm worried that we won't have a chance to grab pom poms somewhere around there on game day and I should just get them now, bringing them with us. What do y'all think? And yes, she thinks it's hilarious and that I'm out of my mind for wanting pom poms so badly, as well as my deep concern of not having them for the game. Ohhh ignorance is bliss. I can't wait until she sees what a REAL football game is like... ?

    Heron Transferring to St. John's

    Really hope to see big things for him! I went to the Auburn-Uconn game in Hartford in December 2016 with all my Uconn alumni friends while being fully decked out in Auburn gear (including my Auburn ugly Christmas sweater). I was very loudly cheering on Auburn and caught the eye of Heron's family. They introduced themselves to me and we talked about Auburn; I taught them the origin of War Eagle and the history of our rivalries with UGA and Bama... Etc. I told them how much it meant to me for Auburn to get our first ever 5* recruit from 20 miles up the road from me, here in CT. They loved my enthusiasm and pure love for Auburn and invited me to meet Mustapha after our victory! The picture is hilarious because I am 5'6" and standing next to him, I only rise to his chest. He was the nicest guy, very family oriented. I am not surprised at all that he would move back up here for his mother. I wish her and their whole family the best! WDE *Edit* I have attached the picture of us at the Hartford XL Center after the game. I think it was actually his mom who took the picture because all of my friends had left to go to the bar and drink their sorrows away ?
