    Gus is like

    The movie Groundhog Day with Bill Murray. Many on this forum saw the movie....basically you awake each day to the dismal reality, you have to relive the same, miserable day again, over and over. I woke up the other day and for a moment, was thinking there a was coaching search ongoing. Then I remembered I fell asleep thinking about a coaching change. True story and I was so disappointed. I honestly feel bad for the players on O the most.

    Asa redshirt screwup??

    Stupid, Stupid, Stupid. Ok, ask yourself this, "What does this Offensive staff do well?" Plan for the season? or the next game? Organize a scheme? Maybe something that journeymen press reporters can't predict? Direct players at practice or during the game? Control who is in the game? Geez if this wasn't so painful, I would laugh. We paid $580,000 last month to Gus for this?

    Mega Millions

    "I'm a man! Talk about me." (oops, no need for the Coach Gundy quote, sorry) I pledge $32 mil and another million to host a BBQ for all those on this forum.

    I believe both would start on day one as true freshmen, unless things change pretty darn fast.

    An unconventional solution

    Alan Greene calls a coaches meeting Monday, 10/15/2014 2:30 pm... "Ok boys, we are making some changes around here. You are all under contract, so I don't want to hear any blowback. Gus - you are now coaching men's and women's tennis. Submit a travel budget by next Friday. Bruce you are now adding Varsity Football to your plate starting now. The team is in the weight room waiting on you. Bruce - let your son run things for a while; you will be coaching BB during conference play and your son needs some 'stick time'. I will get you a stipend. Just let the coordinators run their sides of the ball and hold people accountable. And no player BBQs. When the team doesn't execute, accept responsibility for the coaching staff. Tennis coach - assist Bruce as he needs it and go restring the rackets. That is all and War Eagle."

    Great points. Alert: make way - dead horse coming through! If Chip wasn't micromanaged, and Stidham was developing, we would be able to make up for a poor ground game. I THOUGHT those two were covered this season. Man I guess I am naive or quite the idiot!

    Starting to think

    Dabo has risen while his direct competition has been struggling: USC has been down, FSU had a very nice run, but struggled mightily after 2013 and that pretty much marks when Clemson began their strong recruiting classes. GT & UM have been struggling a long time and UF whom they also recruit against has been way down. So with nobody in the conference to really challenge them other than FSU who have struggled since 2014, Dabo has quietly built a super strong program without getting beat up every 3rd or 4th week. I can't even name all the teams in his conference. He can coach circles around Gus and his staff can out-recruit, but he would avg 9-10 wins per year at Auburn. Not 11 because he also has a propensity to struggle against the likes of an NC St or BC (?) here and there. I love Dabo and heard him talk during a football camp, but I cap it at 10 wins (which is a huge upgrade), but the difference - it would be a strong 9-10 wins EVERY year I think with the occasional 11-12 because of better coaching and recruits. I sure agree with E this time and when you look at regional competition, it is easy to see how he built a powerhouse.

    What would you do to fix the O?

    Time for some development. Problem is Gus is too stubborn to develop anyone. Malik has what 6 passes?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!!!! Are you telling me our OC or HC could not find enough opportunities with a 10 win season to get our back up more than 6 chances to throw the ball?

    What would you do to fix the O?

    they keep practicing, Gus says they have to execute, but you're right - nothing is changing regarding disciple and results. This is the worst O I think I have ever seen at Auburn. It's just plain sad with so many play makers.

    Our Head Coach

    Names like Jerry Faust and Doug Barfield are coming to my mind.....we are so far removed from 2013 because of the sting and indignation of losses to LSU and MSU - it is the way we are losing.

    Gus Post Game Video

    I am tired of his lack of accountability. Does he ever accept responsibility?

    AU is irrelevent in football

    Gus' biggest contribution annually? He has signed top 10 classes. Eventually that runs out with idiotic results on the field. yes idiotic - you telling me MSU has the same talent level on O as Auburn? Defense is close, but not the same. That new coach of MSU at least understands his team's strengths and weaknesses and did a great job pushing the right buttons. Gus is consistently outcoached! I think Orgeron is running his program extremely well. Orgeron understands his weaknesses obviously. I am totally surprised. Now MSU seems to be ahead of Auburn coaching-wise. We beat UGA and bama last yr because the players executed with passion. Stidham played mistake free ball. The D was incredible.
