  1. Their #22 is a freaking locomotive. If we can contain that guy, our chances are better than 50/50.
  2. His thinking may have been that receivers would be looking back so the sun would be behind them. But I agree, it had an effect on the QB play and the field goal attempt.
  3. "I honestly think Steele would retire at Auburn if he could. He is adding to his Alabama State Pension and he loves Auburn. I also don't think at his age of 61 he would want to be a HC anywhere." I've seen this mentioned as Steele's intention, i.e., to accrue Alabama retirement.
  4. We're going to beat UGA and there is no way they fire Gus this season.
  5. Another aspect to consider is that next year will be a rebuilding year, regardless of who is the coach. The seniors on offensive line will be gone. Our spectacular defensive front will be gone. Just another twig on the fire. The cautionary tale is Tennessee. Be careful of over-reaching. Who are are you going to get as a replacement?
  6. Bo was facing immense pressure on passing plays. There was literally a defender on him in less than two seconds. Even seasoned QBs would suffer under that barrage. Look what our defense does to the QBs we face. And we don't get the penetration that defenses get against us. The majority of blame is on the head coach. The play calling was amateur hour. I will give Gus credit for finally learning to QB sneak from under center for short yards. But those calls up the middle... it was painful. He tries it with one running back. It fails. I know, let's put Boobee in there, that's the ticket. Same play. Same result. Okay, put Joey in, that's something different. Same play. I feel sorry for the kids on this team. They are doing the best they can under the circumstances.
  7. I like your enthusiasm. I just can't muster the moxie to think we score 45 points, though. I have to respect Florida's offense a little more. If we break 30 I'll be happy. But we will win. I think Nix and his receivers are getting it together. And our defense is going to make Trask miserable. Our running game will be effective. The noise will be a factor, of course. So I hope our defense doesn't get over-amped into jumping off sides too many times.
  8. Hey, Stuart, thanks a ton for all you do. I know you are doing your analysis as a professional on another site, and that we benefit from your talents here for free. I want to thank you for doing this. Also, kudos to Mark Petrie for the music. I love that bass intro, so moody. The drums were really deep and full. Great music.
  9. gotta get some of that "muscle relaxer"
  10. Hey, Valley, that was a lot of fun. I always appreciate when somebody knows their stuff AND can draw graphics on the computer. My favorite quote, when Seth Williams made eight yards after the catch, "...that was gangsta."
  11. Nice improvement for the O line. Shout out to the fellas for getting it done today. Well done.
  12. The team showed definite improvement. The O line played much better, special teams improved on punt return coverage, and Gus called some different plays against his normal SOP. Our defense was very effective at creating pressure on the QB and keeping him off balance for three and a half quarters. Part of our success was tied up in Jimbo's insistance that Mond not run the ball. He finally started running more in the fourth quarter and they started having more success. Let that be a lesson to keep our offense on the attack and our defense to keep pressure on the QB. We gave up some pressure at the end. It's a darn good thing we got that 1st down when we did at the end.
  13. I am digitally challenged. I am lucky I got the pic I am using now to upload. It was a major PITA to size it until it fit, and even then, it is less than ideal. So, I ain't changing it.
  14. The school should not pay the athlete. Let the money come from endorsements or boosters. Market values will reach a limit as to who gets paid and how much. It is the only fair way to let gifted athletes benefit as to their perceived value. Other guys will just have to play for the scholarship as it is now. It will end underground cheating and put it all in the public view. This may seem unfair to smaller schools. But the scales are already tilted. The only difference will be that athletes can benefit directly and openly without fear of repercussions. Heck, even athletes at smaller schools will get money from boosters who want to win their conference.
