  1. 2018 3* OL Walker Culver

    We have no choice but for one of them or Horton if he can move inside to do it or we are in serious hurt. You can talk about tackles and wr and rb, etc., but only one guy touches the ball every play and its the center. Now maybe there is a juco guard they think can play center that we dont know about, but we BETTER find one by August!
  2. 2018 3* OL Walker Culver

    E feathers not ruffled no problem, your ausome for doing this. I do by the way no a little about playing OL at power 5 level and have scars to proove it. It is my belief that very few guys 6'5" or taller are superior run blockers at guard. They have a very difficult time obtaining leverage on big 2/3 techniques, its simple physics. There are exceptions going back in time Willie Anderson is an example. Think to 2013 and our tackle who went so high in the draft he was 6'4" and a great run blocker but struggled pass blocking in the pros. More and More teams are throwing it all over the place and not running power blocking schemes but shield and position schemes. Big tall guards are fine in that offense, but in a power offense like ours where the guards have to get movement and have to be able to pull and combo block tall guys struggle. Either way we have good guards on team now so no one we sign will be counted on immediatly unless its a juco guy that can play center. Tega, Sammons and Ashley should be able to play the tackle spots next year. Horton, Harrel, and maybe Carr should play guards. Whether Brahm and/or Kim can play winning ball at center is yet to be seen.

    I am not going to debate it, but there was a reason we were better with Dunn at Center. Tall guys can pass block better for sure, but if we are going to run the offense we do now you better not have tall guards. Why do you think all the pull plays went to the right, pulling Harrel? Guys over about 6'4" have a hard time getting leverage and movement on 2/3 techniques. There are exceptions but very few. However, everyone is entitled to their opinion.

    If we are looking at a guard transfer its because we think he can play center. This kid is a tackle or nothing at all. very few 6'6" guards work out. Cannot pull or get leverage on a 2/3 technique.

    If you look at the guys we are still recruiting for OL all are tackles. We had Trey evaluated so high we were willing to take him regardless since we thought he could also play center. Now with him gone we are looking for tackles.
  6. Calvin Ashley

    the only OL issue for which we will not have experienced replacements are center. We can only hope that Brahms or Kaleb Kim can step up.
  7. The silence is deafening.

    Dont you understand the vast majority of people who post on here dont care they just want someone fired and they dont care when or how or why or even who the replacement will be. They dont believe anyone could possibly want to come to Auburn as a recruit since they are protesting their own university. It is very sad indeed.
  8. 2018 3* DE Andres Fox

    All the above about family and of course his high school coach is Ronnie Cottrell. This could be one of those that UAT will not take but will do all they can to push him out of state.
  9. I got off the Gus Bus after Mercer.

    Sort of untrue to say the new OC could not hire who he wanted when the wide receiver coach is the one he just hired to coach his wide receivers at ASU dont you think? For all the bashers and please i am not a gus sunshine pumper by any means yall need to get your facts correct or just hush.
  10. 1 good block, 1 bad

    come on guys this one really is easy if KJ had followed the FB like he is supposed to he would have squirted out of there for a nice gain. Instead he tries to pop it outside and not go in the 3gap where play was designed. If he follows Cox he pops out in the secondary.
  11. Remaining 12 Spots

    We are only going to take two (2) dts and D. Newkirk is already in fold and one. Thus if we do not land C. Miller we will need one (1) more. I am also curious of the boards thoughts as to whom that might be.
  12. Congrats Coach Lolley

    i could not agree with RunInRed anymore. Coach Lolley absolutely knows talent and how to coach defense and agressive defense. No one except those close to the program will ever know just how instrumental he was in the 2010 national championship team. I am very pleased with Coach Brown handling DBs now but we would not have gone wrong at all in hiring Coach Lolley to fill that slot if he would have agreed to come back. He can also recruit lights out. I am very happy for him. I know he won at least one Grey Cup Title since he has been in the CFL.
  13. We may have 5 runningbacks ahead of him this year but Pettway will not be back and even though we expect KJ to return for his senior year that is not guaranteed. Even if he does he has been as pointed out elsewhere many times been injury prone as has malik miller. If they are not 100% that would leave you with K. Martin at 185 and Devan Barrett who is 190 or so right now healthy at runningback pending 2018 signing date and whomever else at rb may sign as a bigger back. He has talent and elusiveness and good hands and hand eye coordination. Sounds like a way to use his skills immediately and have some insurance just in case. You have to look at more than the current year when making these decisions.
  14. i have seen him play twice in person in state playoffs and he is a really good rb. I wish i could sit down with coach fountain and see why he does not like him. Will probably be in 190's this year as a senior. I think he will ultimately be as good as michael dyer was. Same kind of back, vision, strength and balance. Hate AU does not think he fits. I am afraid it will be our loss.
  15. Defensive Pass rush

    Not to be a fly in the negative vibe here but Holland, Williams and James, two Jr's and a Sr, can get after the quarterback pretty good. those three plus Davidson and Brown and D. Russell are six guys who are interchangeable for the starting spots. We do really need two or three more guys to step up. I agree with the other posters that Cowart has the ability to be one of those three. I also think that freshman TDM will be another, he will play at 240 or so by first game. Hopefully Nick Coe will be another and it would be a great story if Tashawn Manning was the other and he looked really good early in spring before getting nicked up. Rodney likes to play 10 and that is 10, Big Cat giving us anything would just be icing on the cake and i am not counting on that at this time.
