  1. Bama vs Georgia

    Expect more of the same for years to come. At uat “it just means more.” It is what it is.
  2. Men vs. uat

    Like someone who said earlier, it’s hard enough to lose, but to your in-state rival that will have an average season at best? Let’s hope they even this series up at home. Winning games like this this is what separates you from being good to being great.
  3. 2018 playoff - I’m calling it now

    Does this scenario include Gus still being the HC?...But seriously, I’m just looking for Auburn to have a back-to-back double digit wins in a season. I’ve never seen Auburn do that in my lifetime. Gus’s inconsistency as a HC does not give me much hope for that scenario, much less making it to the playoffs.
  4. "Can Norv Turner fix Cam Newton"

    I don’t think that it is Cam Newton that needs “fixing” so much as he needs an offensive line to give him time and a couple of more decent WRS. Cam Newton does a great job when he is surrounded by a functional and competent cast. Carolina has a lot more to fix than allegedly Cam Newton.
  5. Mods - Sub-forum request

    I don’t have any problem with you posting Auburn articles. It’s helpful at times to find articles on Auburn that I haven’t come across. You’re all good in my book.
  6. Panthers fire Mike Shula and QB Coach

    This was a good move by Carolina. Hopefully they can find the right fit at OC to help Cam and the offense.
  7. Jonathon wallace hired at bethel university

    Great news! Best wishes to Wallace!
  8. Bama vs Georgia

    Overall, it was bad year in officiating. One of the worst years for officiating in bowl games that I can remember. I’m not sure how some of those missed calls and issues can be improved, but hopefully they can work on it on the offseason .
  9. Gus Malzahn at the AFCA Convention - Quotes

    I’ll have to check it out. I haven’t watched much of their basketball coverage.
  10. Gus Malzahn at the AFCA Convention - Quotes

    The SEC network does suck because a lack of quality programming (for that matter most of ESPN sucks). Only watch when a game is on and turn down the volume, lol. However, the talk of Gus getting fired is on Gus and his coaching performance (schizophrenic at best).
  11. UCF Claims National Championship

    Money makes the world go round, or it does for most anyway. It’s all matter of opinion and who you talk to. I’ve heard others make the same argument against bammer’s SOS this year. Only half the teams they played this season had a winning record going into the bowl season, including Auburn which beat them. There seems to be a bit of an “entitlement” sentiment in the SEC. I’ve been an Auburn fan all my life and I’m grateful that they’re in a great conference. But I understand how others can get SEC fatigue because unlike the NFL, college football is more of a regional sport. The SEC, overall, had a down year, but the SEC brings in a lot of money, and I do mean a lot of money. The “human component” of picking two SEC teams to play in the playoffs has got a lot of people upset, including UCF, but it will generate more money than putting in a team like UCF. I read an article today stating that today’s SEC matchup might have an effect on how they consider the playoff system in the future. Who knows, we’ll just have to wait and see if they try to level the playing field.
  12. Alabama or Georgia?

    Both teams get busted for cheating?
  13. Alabama or Georgia?

    I’m not sure about that strategy, I can’t see Saban wanting to lose period, much less to your in state rival. However, I agree with you about not rewarding teams who did not win their conference, and furthermore did not even win their division within the conference. They need to set up an 8 team playoff format and choose the conference winners to play. Removing the human element (a “committee” that performs back room deals) will make for a more fair system in my opinion.
  14. Spuat or Thuga

    I’m interested in seeing the ratings as well. I’ve heard several people comment this is just a glorified SEC championship game, Just like in 2011 (ironically, bammer was put in by human component both times). The ratings were down in 2011 for that game. And the ratings for last year’s national championship game as compared to the previous. If they lose a lot of money, and continue to do so, I’m sure they’ll start having to look into an alternative format to the current playoff system to make it more appealing to others.
  15. UCF Claims National Championship

    Reading a little more about UCF’s claim to the National Championship, I really can’t say that I blame them. The 2004 season still leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I hate how they did Auburn (and now the title has been vacated). I don’t know if there will ever be a totally fair system to include all 100 and something Division 1 teams. Whenever you have the human component choosing who plays for championships, you’re going to have to expect some bias (money, politics, etc). I say let UCF enjoy their parade and national championship party. The way the system is currently set up, they’ll never experience an opportunity at the playoffs.
