  1. The Jordan Hare North End Zone (NEZ) should encompass a replacement facility for Haley Center. It could encompass classrooms and offices along with luxury seating, upscale concessions, dining areas, standup viewing, and new video boards above the current seats in the NEZ. Why not knock out two birds with one stone? Haley Center is coming down according to plans and our NEZ is currently a dumpster fire. Since part of this hypothetical project will be for classes/students why not get favorable bond financing and move on it to enhance our student/athletic facilities that would benefit our campus and all could enjoy? You could even Include Petrie Hall as the front entrance if necessary. Why not use our architectural and engineering programs to offset the plan and design costs of such a project, also?
  2. This is like the major news of Cadillac and Ronnie B returning for their Senior year in 2004. Awesome!!!
  3. How was Gatewood’s sprint and dive into the end zone not a TD? I understand not reviewing it due to the score, but to not give the guy an earned TD is just wrong. There was no doubt in crossing the goal line before a knee or elbow touched the ground. He looked much more in control with running our offense than #14. Hopefully our new OC can work wonders with coaching all QBs next year.
  4. Can’t stand either team. However, if thuga beats bama a few times coupled with their (thuga) top recruiting success, we may see the REC pull out all stops to take down the dawgs off the field. The REC can’t stand for anyone else to be the new king of the SEC.
  5. Agree with OP. Who’s gonna teach him about principles of roster management and how to make in-game adjustments? The guy needs some major mentoring/tutoring on these 2 things, just to name a few.
  6. Gotta lead the receivers better. Stop underthrowing and creating jump balls. These new guys can fly so let them run under it and never break stride all the way to the EZ!
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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?
  11. 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!!!
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. Thanks for the Marta info!  WDE!!!
