    NCAA's Men's Golf Championship Stroke Play

    Happy for the team’s performance and wishing them more success in match play tomorrow and advancing to Wednesday. Mancheno was awesome, too! Gonna be fun to watch his career blossom at AU and beyond.

    2018 offseason recruiting

    Glad to see AU’s interest in Tye. He’s a very underrated player. GA 4A Player of Year and leader of his back-to-back, 63-0 State Championship team. HS Head Coach is AU’s own Darrell Lockhart, who played for Sonny Smith back in the day. Seems to really like the new Ole Miss coach after signing with him at MTSU before the coach was hired for the Ole Miss HC job. If AU doesn’t get Tye, we’ll be seeing a lot of him at either Ole Miss or UGA.

    Davion Mitchell Transferring

    Go sign 6'3" PG Ty Fagan, AAAA Georgia player of year and leader if Darrell Lockhart's 63-0 Upson Lee basketball ream and back-to-back State Champs. Beat UGA, Ole Miss, and others for this young man's talent. Former signee with Middle TN who gets out of scholly when the Middle TN coach moved to Ole Miss as HC.

    Clemson Recruiting

    FYI. Dabo was in Perry, GA last week watching Trayvon Walker, Thomaston Upson Lee playing Perry in basketball. Trayvon is the starting center for the UL Knights, coached by AU basketball legend Darryl Lockhart and their 53 game winning streak. Trayvon is a coveted TE/DE that Dabo is interested in at a solid 6'5" 260. Kirby Smart just helicoptered in to Thomaston this morning, 1/23/18, to visit Trayvon and his coaches. When do our coaches begin building relationships with future recruits and do the AU coaches have Trayvon on our radar for the 2019 class?

    Demographic Curiosity

    57 Male Georgia 1982 - Industrial Management I was 9 when my parents took me to my first AU game in 1969. Pat Sullivan lead AU to a 44-3 victory over the Kentucky Wildcats. Auburn had me hook, line, and sinker. WDE!!!

    2018 4* OG Trey Hill (UGa)

    Even with our early playing opportunities, how important to Trey is joining his former HS teammate and starting QB at uga who happens to be SEC Freshman of the Year? Tons of pup fans in Warner Robins, too. Tall hill to climb for getting him to choose the good guys.

    Thank You AU Players and Coaches

    Great thread. Very proud of our players and coaches for an impressive final stretch of the season! The Championship game was disappointing, no doubt. In a 4 week stretch, our Tigers went 2-1 against 3 number 1 ranked teams (at some point) and that honestly is mentally and physically draining. You could see it play out last night with lacking sharpness in executing plays and with multiple injuries. To say the team’s tank was empty is an understatement, but our men laid it on the field for the Auburn Family.

    The Trenches

    Prince Tega and Harrell really made a huge difference after they entered the 1st game. Not sure if James and Horton are 100% healthy, but those 2 backups had a super game, so they should be chomping at the bit to play in this game. Loved seeing them lead KJ down the sideline on the last TD. Of course we need Braden S to continue mauling their DL like he did in the 1st game too.
  9. Thanks for the Marta info!  WDE!!!

    SEC Championship Tickets

    What is the most common Marta Station along I85 for AU fans to ride on game day? Prefer to ride with more good guys instead of a train loaded with too many dawg barkers.

    end the hot seat talk

    JMO. Add Gus to the AU AD Search Committee. Same for Coach Pearl or the coach of the next highest revenue producing sport. What do the coaches of the 3 highest revenue producing AU sports programs need more of and less of from the next AD?

    Lindsey has plan for Pettway, Johnson

    The coaches definitely need a few special plays with Willis at QB. Preferably a few passes since we basically run it up the middle or he keeps it and runs when he has played. He would probably have some wide open receivers when he starts a RPO play given our prior tendencies with him.

    Rhett leaves AU / New OC discussion (Merged)

    What's the scoop on Randy Sanders, co-offensive coordinator, FSU? Former SEC QB and current QB coach fo D. Francois. Coached Winston in 2013. Coached Reggie Cobb at U.K. 2 National Championships with UT and FSU. Early 50's, so may not be looking to jump to a HC position any time soon. Knows the southern landscape. Would he be interested in having the OC position by himself?

    Quarterback Coach

    Agree with these two plus Jimbo during his short career at AU. Only 3 in a 30 year period. Sully helped with achieving multiple SEC championships. Al and Jimbo were part of two undefeated teams and SEC championships (can't remember if we were co-camps in 93 due to probation). Of course the QB coach for the last undefeated team in this 30 year period was Gus but he had a once-in-a-lifetime player that helped to achieve the 2010 NC. AU is not unlike most other teams in that when we have an excellent QB, we have an excellent team. Can the PTB make it a priority to convince our HC to hire the best QB coach in the market?

    2016 3* DE David Marshall (UGA flip 2/3/16)

    Marshall's probably a 3 star due to missing 75% of his Jr season due to a knee injury. He's recovered well and should jump back to 4 star in due time. He was able to play in an All Star game at the end of the 2014 season for Georgia HS Juniors and received some type of defensive lineman award. He will get a lot of pressure from thUGA before this process is over, however.
