    The great debate

    Equipment managers job I would imagine How is it the coaching staff is compelled (forced ?) by Under Armour to wear these cleats on this field without checking to see if they were worth a damn on that turf? Simply mind-boggling.... Stidham slipped at least three times in the first couple of series alone. Yet UCF's QB was running wild on the same's not rocket science. After reading that article I was floored by the final sentence... "Also, shouldn't be breaking out new untested cleats to wear for a huge bowl game" That's stupidity on a galactic level right there folks Smh
  2. Throw a pick six to seal the about it on the sideline..... Are you hmmmm kidding me?????
  3. - Offensive line getting it's butt handed to it - Special teams with absolutely zero improvement - Zero improvement in Red Zone Yep...... Definitely getting our 3 million dollars worth of improvement......

    IF.... The good guys had won...

    This While we were playing our best ball at the end of the season we all need to step back and remember the beatdown they gave us in the bowl last year and how ridiculously stupid Mayfield made our pass rush look last year. And they didn't lose much of anything off of that team. No, make no mistake about it, we would have been in a war with Clemson and the winner would have been a coin flip. With a month to prepare Okie would make us look much worse than we are. They WILL beat UGA by 3 TD's plus and then turn around and beat a battered Clemson team for all the marbles a week later. Now with better special teams play and a 100% healthy Pettway AND KJ...we would have had a great chance. But our ST's has been miserable all season long and an extra month is not enough time to have fixed all that was broken on our ST's.

    Gus' first and most important job

    Special Teams coach Wide Receiver coach Develop RB's and have them READY TO PLAY by Game one....other teams do it...why can't we? Figure out who does the offensive talent search at Clemson and get them for AU. From QB's to RB's to WR's they absolutely nail it with their recruiting....year in and year out.

    Should we extend Malzahn's contract?

    My sentiments exactly. Yes he improved as a coach. Talk of an extension is ridiculous at this point and is just another way for Sexton to play both us and Arky again. His makes almost 5 mill a year. He got us to the SEC Championship game but his failure at LSU put us in a must win position to make the playoffs. So I call that a draw....he earned his salary but not a penny more. If he balks at staying for his current pay I say let him go and let Arky swallow his buyout while we use that money to get someone like Brent Venables. JMHO

    Auburn #2 in latest CFP rankings

    Absolutely our best scenario. I do not like the chance of having to play either Okie or Clemson with them having almost a month to game plan against us. I like our chances much better versus either of those two on a shorter preparation schedule, namely the 9 days between the first playoff round and the Nat Championship game.

    What is the key to an IB win?

    Keeping our special teams, aside from extra point squad, off the field. When you think about it special teams average about 20 percent of plays during a single game. This scares me to death this year because our ST play has been the worst I can remember in over 45 years of AU football. That said....War Eagle and Beat Bama

    Maybe you don't understand what a GOOD receiver is supposed to do. A GOOD receiver -runs sharp accurate routes making cuts on a defenders non plant foot to gain separation. -blocks well downfield and holds his blocks to allow long gainers by RB's once they break into the second level - lastly, and most importantly, a GOOD receiver catches the fricking ball...each and every time it hits them in the hands. It doesn't bounce off their doesn't hit the ground after hitting them in the doesn't get caught against the body but out away from the body with the hands....all bad habits various receivers on this squad have done/shown. Yes...they have POTENTIAl...but potential doesn't catch the ball for them. Practice and having soft hands does. I won't EVEN get into how some of our supposed "beastly" receivers, with all the size and speed to be NFL prospects (according to some in our camp) are out fought for slants and posts by far lesser db's.'s called screening gentleman...using your body to keep the defender at a disadvantage while allowing yourself to be in better position for the catch and/or a PI penalty for the defender attempting to go through you to get to the ball. But these things require coaching from a legitimate wide receivers coach...not a nice guy who moved to receiver for one season (a season where he had a whopping 11 catches and 1 TD mind you) and who happens to be one of the current HC's pet assistants. But I digress

    thoughts on backfield

    The problem with the way we have been running it are the personnel utilized on the goal line situations. Does any defensive player really believe that Stidham, in motion, will get the hand-off from KJ? Of course's a worthless fake that fools absolutely no-one. Now replace Stidham with Stove, or Willis, and then you have a run or run/pass threat. But having Stidham motion to freeze an LB from crashing the line is as useless as tits on a boar hog. Nobodies buying it whatsoever. Against Mizzou several of the WC runs were nearly blown up in the backfield because not a single LB/Safety was buying the fake and merely crashing the line at the snap. One of KJ's TD's was only because a d-back missed a wide open tackle which should have gone for a 5 yard loss on the play instead of a TD. On another the play was designed to go to the right side, but Mizzou.(MIZZOU people!) had way more defenders at the point of attack than we had blockers. That play as well would have gone for another 4-5 yard loss inside the 5 but for KJ's cutback, which he did on his own, to score. Yes... the stats say the WC did exceptionally well last Sat. Reality and a rewatch of the game shows at least 3 ,if not 4, of those WC TD's would have gone for big losses inside the Red Zone against any reasonably talented defense. I guess we will find out this Sat.against Miss St...but don't expect the WC to work worth a damn unless Gus and Chip make adjustments in both personnel and philosophy when running it.
  11. All great points. One thing I saw on replay was Barrett should have had a TD on that first swing pass, and would have if not for an intentional trip by the defender that had been taken to the ground. It was clear as day and an absolute crapshow by the refs for missing that call.

    She was somewhere between 7 and 8, probably closer to 8. Pic looks a little deceptive because I'm 6 ft and around 240 these days. I'll say this, in spring with a full load of eggs and a full belly she would probably have been knocking on the 10 lb door. Easily the biggest mouth on one I had ever caught and I've had maybe 50 or more in the 7-8lb range. Released her back to make some more baby hawgs in the future. Pond is next to my best friends house in Harris County,Ga. He was telling me there weren't any more big fish left in there about 5 minutes before she hit.
