  1. Saw nearly every game. I agree Campbell was great, but I look at where Stidham placed those balls and how the ball stayed in a such a tight spiral throughout the pass, and I think Stidham's passes were better. As I said, Stidham's body of work is just one A Day game.... As for Jason C, it is truly sad he had to endure such turmoil and turnover at the OC during his pro career. I think he really would have been a good NFL QB instead of a journeyman. Look at what he did with the stinking Raiders! I like the Raiders, so I can say they stink. ( I knew comparisons to Jason were going to be levied against that post! )

    True...but we need a 'go for the throat' attitude. If I were the coach, there would be some moments I would use D Carlson of course. But imagine how an OC would change his play calling if he knew, "we crossed the 40 and I have 60 yards to go. I have 4 downs for conversion. I have these weapons....". This would change play calling I am sure.
  3. The winds of change at Auburn are blowing. I believe we may see that 1000 yd receiver this year. Stidham throws the best deep ball I have seen thrown at Auburn. Granted that was A day, but geez who else threw that well on A day or during a season? If we land JF, then those odds go up. And as you guys said, we have a lot talent in Auburn and inbound...then wind is blowing in great things at Auburn.

    Dumb question: can a JUCO transfer after just one year? I am 99% sure that answer is yes, but I would be assuming. It is possible someone under the radar just emerges. I know one expert on here said there wasn't a target in the JUCO ranks right now. It may be smart if there is a one good prospect to pull the trigger instead of waiting for the 2nd yr when everybody and their brother is trying to recruit him. Maybe someone didn't enroll in some remote state and could be a target for us? yes I am grabbing straws.

    Just like with Chizik told Gus to dial up a 4th down play against bama. Chiz didn't tell Gus what to do or which side to throw to, but he made the 'strategic' decision and Gus made the 'tactical' decision. Personally, once we cross the 40 (on OUR side), I am good if we go for it on 4th down - EVERY TIME (if less than 5 yards). That is a head coach decision of course. If Lindsey knew that was the automatic call, and with our weapons, holy cow that changes A LOT.
  6. Team's Strongest/Fastest Player?

    Not to bag on teenagers, but I don't think those teens spotting B Smith are capable of lifting that 515 if Smith needed them to. That is incredible. Really is

    I don't need a season...I am not airing our dirty laundry here, but CCL is the best QB developer we've had in a ton of years. Just think back and break it down. Also, it's the AD I want to fund this, not you and I...but I would kick in something if it would keep us stable.
  8. ok, I prob over-reacted. But I honestly have zero belief in the reasons he stated as to why he left UF and think he played the sympathy card with the fans. I think he crossed the line using his family and health. I wish he had just said, "I need a bleeping break and will spend time with my family while I regroup." I have discussed this example with my son as a learning point regarding integrity. You deserve an answer to your question Gowebb. Hmmmm. If he had left UF for Auburn under the same premise? Yeah, he is still a schmuck. My schmuck? Sure, I would claim him but not respect him so much. Disclosure: my values are based on my experience serving in the Army here and overseas, so I do value integrity .. Sorry if I got us off topic. My bad... Justin "the Swiss Army knife" Fields will commit before Valentines Day I read somewhere. Can E confirm this?

    I make a motion we lobby the AD to begin a 'coaching staff stabilization fund.' 1. We need to keep CCL to have a chance to recruit great QBs and we need a QB guru. 2. After this season, I think other programs will try to poach some of our staff. 3. We need stability to help counter all this negative recruiting!
  10. Meyer is schmuck. He was struggling to regain the limelight after Tebow left and I think he lost 5 games the year he quit Florida He quit UF to be with family and health reasons (heart). That lasted less than 12 months...basically OSU saw the unique opportunity hire him and force out Jim T, which would be hard to do. Also with Meyer not coaching, he could talk with OSU officials while Trexel was coaching...The guy is a snake. So basically in less 12 months his kids grew up and his heart is just fine?

    Concur, but it seems to me they are landing more talent than normal. And I am sore that we can't land any of our top RB targets in the "thumper" category.

    This is what I have been thinking for over a month, but didn't want to write b/c I know I am a Homer and didn't want To sound like a whiner. I truly believe there is some funny Stuff going on at UGA as they are landing such talent..
  13. 2018 4* RB James Cook

    Yeah, I could see that point. Thanks. I have to assume we will consider JUCO backs. True?
  14. 2018 4* RB James Cook

    I am a homer, but I still don't get it. I know we aren't having RBs drafted in round 1, but we are getting RBs drafted when they come out
  15. Great read. Thanks for sharing
