  1. Al Borges?

    After 2005, defensive coordinators had figured out that Cox couldn't throw beyond 30 yards and even if he did it would be a floater that any average db could catch up to if he was beaten. Always 9 in the box and no defender more than 10 yards from the line of scrimmage ever
  2. Al Borges?

    Al Borges can absolutely coach offense. 2006-07 he was handicapped by an extremely limited QB. And that is not a knock against Brandon Cox. He is one of my all time favorites for playing through a medical condition that would have sidelined most and took a beating because of it. Auburn2Eugene, I have been saying for a while now that something happened to Gus. It might even follow the same timeline as whatever it was that happened to Jeremy Johnson. Gus coaches scared. Like psycho, clinical level (there is a phobia for this but I'm too lazy to look it up). Whenever the chips are down, he reverts to the safest play that he has. He harps incessantly about ball security. Only plays the guys that he completely trusts (and he's probably still playing some that he doesn't trust because the rules say you have to put 11 on the field) and he only lets them run the plays that he is most confident in them being able to run (see Clemson 2016 QB rotation, etc). That's not the Gus that we hired but I don't know where the other Gus went. This Gus is possibly just one step away from taking a knee three times and punting
  3. I may be thinking too much also but I think the coach may be thinking about what is best for all of his players and not just one. If the other QB was not playing QB then the other QB would not be playing at all and would not have the scholarship offers that he has. The best thing for AU would be for Joey to be getting all the QB reps but Joey's coach don't work for AU he works for Bartram and his priority is, and should be, all of his kids at Bartram. Also, most HS coaches default to playing their best athlete at QB. This coach has the luxury of playing his best athlete everywhere because he has another guy who happens to be a legit D-1 QB himself.
  4. Burns unconcerned about Davis

    What you are asking for will eventually put Gus, or any other coach for that matter, in a no win situation. What happens when the next kid actually is having academic issues? Does Gus lie by emphatically telling everyone that there are no issues legally, academically, etc? Or does he tell everyone what the issue is by virtue of not emphatically denying specific areas? The best way to avoid this problem is to consistently say nothing.
  5. 2018 4* WR Jacob Copeland

    I know what all of those words mean. Put together in the manner that they are, however, is a little difficult to understand. But I'm old and it looks positive for Auburn so I'm good with it, lol. Not sure what some of those emojis mean either, but again, I'm old.
  6. 2017 Cal Grad Transfer OT Aaron Cochran

    Since Fehoko has to sit out the 2017 season anyway, why not have him enroll later?

    Hey, that could be a great play. Line up every QB in a stacked I formation......... I'll be back in a minute. Gotta go call Gus.

    Well that's better than going three and out, at least.
  9. 2018 4* CB Jalyn Armour-Davis (Bama)

    There is a thread on it in the football rivals section. Only way I know about it.
  10. 2018 4* CB Jalyn Armour-Davis (Bama)

    Understood. And, yes, I was being a little sarcastic referring to the coach in La. being fired for attempting to ban uat.
  11. 2018 4* CB Jalyn Armour-Davis (Bama)

    Wait a minute, aren't high school coaches supposed to get fired for trying to prohibit coaches from visiting?
  12. I don't think that complaining about the recruiting class has nearly the negative effect as the constant poor mouthing about the coaching staff (i.e. Gus) and the predictions that they will be fired next year and so on and so on. Many of the "insiders" and mods on this board are the most guilty of this.
  13. Auburn fans: Lets Unite Against

    I refer to uat as updykes for one simple reason. It's insulting and derogatory and they don't like it. I'm pretty sure that's why you refer to them as uat. I can understand the sentiment of not wanting to give Harvey any attention, but for me, as long as it is negative and is a constant reminder of the character of their fans, I'm good with it. I, myself, try to never address them by their proper name. Some popular substitutes include uat, gumps, bammers, mullets, that team on the other side of the state, etc. On a side note, I wish someone would explain what "spuat" stands for so I can determine whether or not I want to use that. However, the term that currently seems to be the most insulting is "updykes". I mean, it even sounds bad without the relevant backstory. I hope you can accept this reasoning and possibly even embrace it yourself.
  14. Ok this is the last post, lol. I ain't mad or nothing. Just didn't have any more to add. And I needed to at least pretend to be working for a little bit.
