  1. Pettway Out for Peach Bowl

    This is more impactful than the contract IMO. Guys at the bottom of the draft and FA don't have much leverage either way. Unless he was FA and blew up his 2nd and 3rd year and then got a BIG contract maybe that one year difference comes into play, but I don't really know if it makes a huge difference IMO.
  2. Pettway Out for Peach Bowl

    None of those contracts are guaranteed after the 1st and part of the 2nd round contracts. So it really doesn't matter much what the other terms are regarding years and what not.
  3. 24/7: Holland coming back

    repetitive injury problems?? It's really only been an issue the last 2 years and I think it has more to do with the 2 players in question than our depth (or lack there of according to some posters). Both of those guys seem like they've been rather injury prone their entire careers and really Johnson just had his least injury riddled season in a year he had by far his most carries. Before those 2, we have had very little injury problems from the RB position and this hasn't really been much of a topic.
  4. Back to Back 10 win Seasons

    Everyone claiming we don't start the year strong should take a look at the 1 year Gus had a returning QB and the points we put up in the first 5 games.
  5. Men vs. George Mason

    I would suggest Playstation Vue over Sling. They don't have the low entry level price of sling, but that low price is for a reason. You can only choose either a couple ESPN channels or the other sports channels like FS1, NBCSN, etc. If you want both, you are paying the same or more than Vue. Plus PS Vue has local network channels ABC, NBC, FOX, CBS. You can get these with an antenna if you live close enough to a signal, but it's much easier to toggle back and forth between games when it's all in one app and not switching sources back and forth. Plus you can have multiple users that can set and record their own favorite shows and watch on multiple devices at the same time.
  6. rushing the field

    This wasn't considered a thing Auburn would do when I was a student. It actually was rather looked down upon because like @NoALtiger said "we've been there before". The 2013 kick 6 rushing of the field I totally understand (once in a lifetime scenario). Other than that, I don't think Auburn should ever rush the field.
  7. Kerryon Johnson updates

    Have you read the thread at all?
  8. Rose Bowl or Sugar Bowl?

    No, I'm actually agreeing with you. Whoever wins the ACC is in. No way bama gets in over Miami. Miami would have 2 good wins that would trump bama's "good loss". I was replying saying that losing to Pitt wouldn't be the reason bama would get in ahead of Miami because Clemson lost to Syracuse and that hasn't hurt their seeding based on all of their good wins they have.
  9. Rose Bowl or Sugar Bowl?

    I think the committee is factoring the 7-0 against teams with winning records much more than Kelly Bryant being injured against Syracuse, JMO. I really don't think that has mattered much at all considering the rest of their resume. Which was my point. The committee is much more impressed by who you beat than who you lost to.
  10. Rose Bowl or Sugar Bowl?

    Clemson has an even worse loss to Syracuse than Miami to Pitt and they are currently #1. The committee seems to value "good wins" much more than "good losses"
  11. AU vs Indiana State Game Thread

    I enjoyed the part where his size was questioned due to an encounter at chick-fil-a.
  12. Next year's team

    yep, 2014 was the only year Gus has had a returning legit #1 QB. We started 5-0 that year and averaged 42 points per game in that stretch which included averaging 43 points per SEC game so it wasn't just piling on some cupcake OOC teams.
  13. “Give it to him”

    you can just google "Chip Kelly Auburn" and there are multiple links with the plays Kelly breaks down.
  14. Next year's team

    DL juco or grad transfer may be a waste of a roster spot unless they are truly elite. Even with a few guys leaving, our DL is still pretty stacked and I'd rather get elite freshmen on campus to fill depth than an older player to fill depth.
  15. Next year's team

    Obviously it's more than what he makes now, but the further away from the 1st round you are, the less a team will have invested in you and quicker they will be to cut. It's not that simple that just getting drafted makes you guaranteed money. Guaranteed money is only for those going in the 1st and some 2nd round. 1st round is pretty much guaranteed all 4 years of the rookie contract, 2nd sometimes 2 years guaranteed. That is a massive difference than a league minimum contract with no guarantees. He obviously could also be running the risk of injury and never getting any money if he comes back another year. I'd say for anyone with a 1st or 2nd round grade they should go, no questions asked.....after that I think there are many more decisions to be made as there are far fewer guarantees further down the draft.
