  1. 2018 Schedule released

    Kind of nostalgic to see Southern Miss back on the schedule after so many years. I remember years ago when we played them almost every year and when we played Ga. Tech every year. I like the opener against the Huskies, too.
  2. Sean White arrested

    I know Gus won't say, but does anybody have any idea what SW's previous suspension was for? That should be a determining factor for whether he says on the team or not, IMO.
  3. Where is Kam Martin or Malik Miller?

    Inconceivable that against a team like Mercer that our backups would not get the playing time and experience they need to be ready to step in. How the hell are we going to develop any depth at RB, or other positions for that matter? With Kerryon out we are one KP injury away from epic failure of our offense. That has been Saban's point of success, developing depth. Right now, we are way too thin.
  4. Stidham

    I agree. JS badly needs a breakout performance against an SEC opponent if he is going to seal up his position at QB. A big performance on the road at Mizzou on 9/23 would be a good start. If he falters in that game, we may see SW soon, whether we like it or not.
  5. Can the O be fixed this season?

    +1 Was the offense fixed between the 2014-2015 seasons? Was it fixed from time of the 2016 Clemson game to this year's disaster at Death Valley? It will be fixed against lesser opponents but it will not fixed to the degree that we can compete with a Top 10 team, the likes of which we haven't beaten since 2014.
  6. Stidham

    Of course, the 11 sacks were not on Stidham but he has to get rid of the ball sooner. And he has to improve his peripheral vision in terms of the oncoming rush- he is getting blindsided and fumbling too much. Still, I think he is a perfectly serviceable QB, although not a Cam or Nick, who is at least as good as Danny Etling of LSU. As long as he can stay healthy we can win with him. AU puts too much emphasis on the QB. Remember, Saban won the NC with Jacob Coker, so it's not all about the QB.
  7. Stidham

    He is not as advertised in terms of being a dual-threat QB. But that doesn't mean he doesn't have potential. I am just not sure with the coaching staff we have that potential will ever be realized. But let's give him a fair shake, if he can stay healthy he is all we got and he is our guy for this season.
  8. Chip admits to calling all plays

    Everybody was SMH after last year's Clemson game with all the QB shuffling, which included the now infamous CoxCat and its bizarre Whirlybird. After 11 sacks Sat. night, I'm not sure I would have been opposed to seeing the CoxCat / Whirlybird again. ;-)
  9. Chip admits to calling all plays

    Our current offense has three plays, take your pick: 1) Run KP up the middle 2) Sling the ball down the field before they get to the QB, hope a receiver can run under the ball 3) Play action to KP up the middle, see #2.
  10. Al Del Greco on WJOX

    So what exactly did he say? Got a linky or something?
  11. Our own worst enemy

    We haven't beaten a Top 10 team since Ole Miss in 2014. That's the measuring stick that should be used and if you are satisfied with that, if you're satisfied with going 6-6 and going to a bowl then Gus is your man and you are probably happy. Can anyone honestly say AU has improved under Gus?
  12. Who here still likes Gus as the head coach?

    The cracks in the armor showed themselves to me in the NC against FSU in 2014 when Gus blew a big lead and snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. And, since then, those cracks have only multiplied. How many big games have we won since 2013? A few in 2014 and practically none since then. Gus either does not know how to judge talent or he doesn't know how to develop it, or a combination of the two. In any case, AU will be mired in mediocrity as long as he is HC. We need to cut him loose ASAP.
  13. Who Do You Want?

    At this point, I would settle for Ed Orgeron.
  14. Who here still likes Gus as the head coach?

    Read the Scarbinsky piece. AU has not beat a Top 10 team since Ole Miss in 2014. We are now three seasons removed from that. Les Miles got the ax for much less and we should've given Gus the heave-ho at the end of last year.
  15. Who here still likes Gus as the head coach?

    He has a dismal record of under performance in big games. He is unable to adjust against elite defenses like Clemson's. His reputation as an offensive guru was built on the backs of a couple of great QB's, Cam and Nick. The mask is off and it's clear he is over his head and he will never take us to the next level.
