    I really don’t think we’re a bad team....

    To me it is pretty simple. Our lack of a dominant big man makes us a team that relies on our speed and shooting. The games we have looked the best this year, we have sped up the pace of the game with tight pressure defense and running our offense where we make a couple of good passes and shoot early in the shot clock. I cringe every time we run the shot clock inside 10 seconds; it is usually ended with a prayer shot. On the flip side, you will notice the teams we look the worst against hold the ball the full length of the shot clock have made us look the worst ( uab and Ole Piss). I believe from here on out, BP needs to emphasize speeding up the tempo of the game on both ends of the floor as much as possible. After that we really need to get some more physical tall players inside. The ones we got are tall enough, just get pushed around too much.

    Men vs. Ole Miss game thread

    We looked bad out there in several areas. I think the thing that hurt us most was the long lay-off. We were out of sync from the start and every time we made a run seemed we ran out of gas before we could go ahead. I hope whomever makes the schedule out from now on learns a lesson from this. Basketball is a game of momentum and flow and it is hard to maintain either one not playing for eleven days.

    2019 5* LB Owen Pappoe commits to AU!!!

    I wish you could merge a good offensive mind with Gus' empty head. Do you possess that skill E?

    Texas A&M postgame thread

    So I believe most of the AU fans view this as a bitter-sweet win. I , like many others thought the game was over with 7 minutes and change left and we're down by 10. The offense has given us no reason to think differently the whole season, as well as during the game Saturday. The players rose up and proved me and a lot of others on this site wrong and won the game. Congrats to them sincerely for doing so!!! I am always glad when AU wins. But I view this as a pyrrhic victory if we lose to UGA and Bama as expected. I think the players winning this game in this fashion was just enough to save Gus' job. I don't think the ptb's would justify firing him with at least a 7-5 reg. season. I think 6-6 would have been enough to put him on the road. On the bright side of things, the rumor that Gus would consider hiring his good friend Hugh Freeze is growing legs and becoming more of a possibility. If and only if Gus would make this hire and let HF run the offense with no interference, we would have a chance to be a special offense next year with the talent we have now and the talent that is coming in. This could also help us get a few recruits that we will not have gotten otherwise. If he hires HF and interferes with the offense like he has with CL the last 2 years, it will be the same old frustrating 2019 season.

    How about Iron man football like in Necessary Roughness? Let Brown, Davidson and Russell play o-line and d-line.

    Is it a new rule that grabbing your balls is a 15 yard penalty now? I missed that somehow.

    I just think those two would look like 2 rams having a head butting contest. Don't believe Gus would give him the freedom he would want.

    Article "shut down the prayer"

    Sorry friend, disagree. When someone specifically calls out Christians rights to pray of their own choosing, then they are attacking Christianity. The most famous person to do this was Madelyn O'Hair.. She fought to have prayer taken out of public schools, and won that battle to some degree. She wound up murdered, stuffed in a barrel, and put in a pond by one of her most trusted employees.

    Chances of a new Offensive Game Plan

    I can guarantee you that if whatever plan A is doesn't work the whole game, there will be no plan B.

    Article "shut down the prayer"

    We just need to pray that these heathen people will have a change of heart. They are attacking Christianity plain and simple. If the players choose to pray together voluntarily and are not forced or threatened to do so, then it shouldn't be an issue with outsiders. They are fighting a battle they are destined to lose and are their own worst enemies.

    Clemson Grad Transfer QB Kelly Bryant (Mizzou)

    Yes guys, Gus is not interested in getting a true duel threat qb who would fit his system. He would rather try to force a square peg in a round hole. As a matter of fact I think he is trying to get Arky's 270 lb. backup qb to transfer to AU.

    Unanswered Questions about the Malzahn Era

    I would Almost rather sit in a dentist chair for 2 hours than listen to a Gus press conference. Most vanilla speaking coach I have ever heard.

    Biggest disappointments of the season

    I would have liked to have seen more utilization of throwing to the TE. Shenker looks like he can catch the ball well, and is a decent looking runner after the catch. I believe this would help negate the fact that we don't have a stud RB like we had with Kerryon last year, and also the fact that our OL can't protect JS. Believe this is a bad oversight on Gus' part, or either he's just not smart enough to figure it out

    Simple Solution?

    You seem to have an echo on your keyboard.

    Good one man. That was a captain obvious statement. How about their offense will be the difference in the game.

    I don't see us beating atm. I think they will outscore us (not by much), but they will. I believe of the three games remaining, the gettable game for us is UGA. Their strength is running, so it will be our strength (stopping the run) against theirs. I believe atm and bama will beat us passing the ball.

    Rotation this year

    I got: PG - Stidham SG - Ryan Davis SF - Canella PF - Davidson C - Brahms Whoops! Wrong sport, sorry.

    Malik Miller

    I love him in this short yardage back situation. He has embraced it and is thriving in it. If only he had breakaway speed, he could be our every down back. Unfortunately, my 89 year old aunt walking with her cane, caught him from behind and passed him while he was running the ball and told him he was doing a great job on the way by.👣

    sticking with Carlson

    Have yall noticed that on those long kick attempts, we have a bad habit of putting him on the left hash mark, which makes it a push kick, which is the most difficult for a fg kicker to make? Can somebody give a graph of his misses from the left hash, from the middle of the field and from the right hash? Just curious about this.

    Who would replace Malzahn (merged threads again)

    If he comes here he can bring his bro with him. Fine by me.

    Who would replace Malzahn (merged threads again)

    We would have to give the players and coaches splash goggles to wear bc he spits when he talks. On a serious note; after watching Bromm eat Ohio State's defense for supper Sat. night, he is who I want. Get him a really good coordinator on d, such as Steele or someone of his caliber and I believe we would be set.
