  1. Alabama...where you start a war over morally reprehensible crap, and lose in spectacular fashion. People who wave their bibles in your face, scream about "pro-life" and "No Sharia Law", yet do everything they can to force their own views upon everyone else. Even telling God that you will see it our way, or else. Thank God I got to move away in 1988.
  2. There are a few former coaches & players who disagree with that completely...
  3. What he doesn't mention is they really are more in line with the '92 bammer football team. Offensively they really are a wish and a prayer, that's how they forced overtime. Yes, they do have two guys who are pretty good at threes, but are SUPER streaky. Their big guys are mainly for defense. Defensively they are the stuff. And they are a great group of kids. I know, I run into many of them on campus. But they are NOT deep. The UK game showed that we can play at their pace. That, in and of itself is disconcerting to them. They will not let us run ours, but, if we play physical with them...there is the ticket. If they get into foul trouble, they WILL be forced to match our pace, and they cannot do that. But honestly, we can play with these guys in their style and beat them. Will be a hell of a game. One other thing, this is a matchup of two class programs and schools. We, and the rest of the country need to relish that.
  4. Not around Cville and Richmond. They watched the UK game and understand thea Auburn can more than play with them. Auburn plays a very strong defense, and can totally shut down a team for extended periods of time. Auburn has really upped their game rebounding, especially on the offensive side. What scares the loving shite out of them is the thought of all 5 guys being able to fire the 3 ball on them. That Edwards kid from Purdue scared the crap out of them. He put 42+ on them.
  5. Nicely stated and well thought out opinion! Thanks!
  6. Auburn moved up to 15 in the Kenpom after the bammer win
  7. I wish most people would get this!! Beautiful answer!!!
  8. Well, you haven't made it yet...I guess there is still hope for you.
  9. I simply feel like, if I keep waiting for it, I will find the end of the Rainbow, and the Leprechaun's treasure, and it will change my life forever. Mate, the guys are not there, because this head coach and his OL coach simply cannot evaluate talent. Proven beyond the shadow of a doubt. Six years.
  10. The first sentence you nail. Firmly. Squarely. The second you really miss by a country mile. They are really glad he is there for he makes the university and program look like a mess. National perception is that Auburn Football is a complete and total mess, and a program on the decline. And there are some coaches who would do well at Auburn as they have built successful programs at other schools in their career, not been a fly by night fella, like Gus. Bo Mendenhall at UVA is one. He rebuilt BYU into a consistent program and is doing the same at UVA. And UVA has a distinct disadvantage: Their ballers have to be able to make the scores and the grades to get into UVA and STAY eligible at UVA (UVA is not Duke or UNC, and will let you know that in a heartbeat). And no, Auburn is not in UVA's sphere when it comes to the quality of education and student, let's not even go there. The greatest issue at Auburn are the people in charge. It has some of the poorest leadership I have ever experienced in my life. When that changes, many other things will change, especially in football. For the better.
  11. Sorry, I don't live in the La La Land Deep South. The results I have seen from this fella give me absolutely zero hope that he can right the ship. I can definitely see him sinking it, even though I would really like for him to turn it around and be successful. In the corporations that I have worked for, he wouldn't have lasted two years past 2013. There is a difference after multiple years of watching stupid when one finally realizes that it WILL NOT get better...but then you probably believe everything that comes out of Trump's mouth like it's Gospel.
  12. I JUST saw it. Wish it were different. I really do.
