  1. Gus gas stated multiple times that AU is a “good” team. Well, good will not win championships any longer. He needs to commit to making AU a “GREAT” team and do everything in his power to make that happen. Will he? Only time will tell. I hope he can and it would be a great start with hiring an OC that can transition AU to the next level and keep us there for the long haul.
  2. Where will FSU OC Kendal Briles go?
  3. What would Kirby and uga’s record be playing LSU and bama every year? Probably not too sporty.
  4. In addition to Joe Brady, LSU hired legendary Coach John Robinson to mentor Coach O and to provide other consulting duties to the team.
  5. Without a top QB, Fisher is a Dead Man Walking. Just look at his final years at FSU and now his first 2 years at Texas A&M. Yep. It is that way for any Head Coach. Thank goodness AU is not in that situation this year.
  6. To Doc - “This is out there in left field a bit, but I have thought on several occasions maybe there are some REC moles hidden within our athletic infrastructure determined to keep us where we are. (Red elephant club...”. I’ve been thinking this for years. It doesn't make sense why AU cant get out of its own way. However, rogue boosters of another persuasion that would do anything to keep AU suppressed would be on par for the powerful REC.
  7. Agree. How will our front 7 get enough pressure on Hebert with 7 blockers (UO leaving 2 TEs to block). We didn’t get good QB pressure last year when SEC teams kept extra blockers to protect the QB. And, how will our young LBs react to short passes to RBs and TEs after they chip our pass rushers?
  8. Changing QBs too frequently. Let Bo have enough time to get into a good rhythm and not alternate series or the same series with multiple QBs. If the starter is ineffective after 3-4 series, the let #2 have several series to right the ship. I still have nightmares from the Clemson game at AU in ‘15 or ‘16 when 5 different people lined up at QB at some point. Hopefully, Gus has matured enough to not have to rely on such shenanigans.
  9. Agree! Gus needs to improve his roster management skills so we’ll have the horses to unleash when uga and bama come to town at the end of the season. The past 4 years have been so frustrating (with the exception of 2017 regular season) watching us not beat weak dawg teams and not compete well with bama due to key player injuries because of limited substitutions against weaker teams earlier in the year. Specifically not having players Gus could rely on when Shawn White and KJ were too injured to be effective but he kept them in the games nevertheless.
  10. Did they get any Under Armour Rush attire to recycle their body heat for improved performance? That would be great if it happens.
  11. Joe’s Kansas City BarBQue Restaurant and Tank 7 craft beer by Boulevard Brewing Co are must haves while visiting KC.
  12. 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?
  13. This is like the major news of Cadillac and Ronnie B returning for their Senior year in 2004. Awesome!!!
  14. 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.
