  1. Correct me if I am wrong, but didn't Chip spend all 2017 Spring practice installing his Air Raid just for Gus to change course during fall camp?
  2. Do to a complete rebuild on the offensive line and the championship caliber defense we fall to 8-4 even if Gus does give Chard the O. But a HUGE Gus problem is Gus giving Chad the offense then UNC comes and Gus as usaul intervenes and takes the O back over.
  3. Alabama National Guard has a ribbon for responding to riots there.
  4. With the final recruiting deadline on the horizon and a few more linemen being targeted, is there a time table set to hire an offensive line coach?
  5. To be fair I am ready to take JB's place.
  6. Sad but true. My money is that Gus hires a yes man.
  7. This is what I am having a hard time understanding. Gus is an 8-5 coach. Needing to rebound after last season and put the haters away Gus responds with 9-4. Gus has lost four or more game a season for the last six years. three 8-5 and a 7-6. 10-4 is the outlier and it still has a head scratching/infuriating loss to LSU and a lack luster performance agaisnt UCF. Yet despite Malzahns obvious mediocrity and below average record with QB's he still kills it on the recruiting trail and somehow got Bo Nix. HOW?
  8. 1. Like Paul Johnson with the Triple option at GaTech, Gus runs a gimmick offense and the more time you have to prepare the easier it is to shutdown. 2. Phillip Marshal stated in a recent podcast, that the more time Gus has to game plan, the more time he hhas to overthink things.
  9. J.B. Grimes is an OK coach. He was the Arkansas State Oline coach when Gus was our OC, and was the UConn Oline coach when Gus brought him back. He is not in high demand by any power 5 staffs. He is a C-USA caliber coach.
  10. I do not know how we get rid of a 9-3Gus but I am still ll for it.
  11. What? NO! Simmons is the o=line coach we need,not the one Gus will hire. Simmons would probably tell Gus he is wrong, recruit players Gus doens't want him to recruit. Coach in a manner that does not suit his offense. I was thinking more of a Ryan Pugh.
  12. IMO I think Gus had buyers remorse by the Miss State game last year. I wondered at the end of last season if Gus would fire Grimes, but if he did it fire him after one season it would be Gus openly admitting to everyone he made a bad hire. I do think after this season and a somewhat improved o-line J.B. will probably leave for a lesser program again, Gus will go and find a young Kodi/Carnell caliber o-line coach. Someone with a lot of potential to be a strong recruiter who WILL DO WHAT GUS TELLS HIM!
  13. I am shocked that Gus 1. let him play, and 2. let him throw the football......
  14. Shocked Gus punt CS in thatearly and is actually letting him throw.
  15. UAB's QB was out that game. But I am all for the crap shoot
  16. Last weekend I had a two hour discussion with a good friend on whhy I thought Gus would be here for next season. These were my reasons for Gus coming back. 1. Too many moving pieces not on the same page. Some wanted Gus gone. Some wanted him gone but did not want to pay the buy out. Does Jay Gogue want to have any part in this as an interim? Where does Allen Greene fit into all of this and what is his role? Does the Board of Trustees want to deal with the negative press, financial responsibilities etc? 2. There is not a quality proven HC.The best pr
  17. I cannot remember how long ago I read "Hard Fighting Soldiers". Good quick read. I never got to meet Chette when I was a student at Auburn. I used to go to a weekly youth group with the assistant team chaplain. He really looked up to Chette and Chette was a great mentor to him. This hurts. I cannot imagine what He and his family are going through. Auburn is almost a perfect place. When these tragedies take place it is shattering.
