    Stidham: Stay or Go article

    He can blame the Gus offense with no offensive line, no running attack and poor passing route tree and every scout in the NFL would understand and agree. His stock has definitely been damaged. He did not show the ability to make decisions and step up in the pocket. I think he could grad transfer to an air raid offense and everyone (NFL teams) would understand why. How in the world would you trust Gus to develop a passing attack in the off season when he wouldn't or couldn't do it last year. Even with Freeze, there is high risk that Gus would maintain control of yet another offensive disaster. Why does anyone think the OL is going to be improved? What history with Gus and JB would indicate this? I bet he gets the hell out of Auburn the second the lower tier bowl game is over.

    Deshaun Davis on fake FG

    It was BS and for most teams it would piss them off and they would remember it the next time we played, but our guys never seem to get pissed off about anything. 1. If you have to find motivation to play UGA then something is wrong with you and 2. Team takes on the personality of their leader. We are wussies. UGA was glaringly bigger, stronger and tougher than us. They would knock your head off and we arm tackle. Every time we made a tackle, their RB was falling forward. We just didn't seem to have the heart to lay it on the line. I think the team would follow Deshaun Davis to hell and back. Not sure there are many more of those on the team. Too soft.

    2019 Recruiting Thread

    I would be thrilled with #7 right now. I am fearful we are going to lose some of our top recruits. I hope we can convince them to stay on board and let's see which assistant coaches we can get to try to turn this disaster around.

    Georgia Game Report Card

    So that's what a talented, well coached OL looks like? They are massive and get to the next level. Our LBers were getting road graded all night long and they have RBs that can take it to the house. We have Gus' buddies that can't recruit and can't coach. Our OL looks like a HS team. Hard to win when you get dominated at the LOS all game. But as we have always heard, stars don't matter. BS. And it doesn't help that we do not develop the players we do bring in. Total FAILURE by the coaching staff. Hope there are several all american OL transfers this year.

    Southern Miss Game Report Card

    I have 0% confidence we have the offensive coaches (OC, OL, RB) to improve this offense. The handwriting is on the wall. If we cannot run the ball on USM and Ark we will not run the ball on Miss St, UGA, and bammer. The coaches apparently do not have the ability to shift our offense to a pass first attack with short slants and passes over the middle. After seeing USM use crossing routes and pseudo pick plays I said USM has a much more advance passing attack versus our passing game. I think our D keeps us in most games (not UGA and bammer - both blowouts). We play Miss State close but they beat us at home. We will fight tough games against UT, TAMU, Ole Miss. Probably an 7-5 season with not much optimism about the OL and RB for next year. I think Stidham leaves either way after this year. Pros or grad transfer. He knows he needs to be on a passing team that has an OL and pass routes to get open. Sounds like the sky is falling. If Gus was a quality HC that cared about AU he would go ahead and start looking for a new OL coach that can coach and recruit and a new RB coach. But we all know that is not going to happen. I have seen nothing the last two weeks that show our offense is improving. Harsh reality.

    2019 5* OG/C Clay Webb

    If your only criteria is to come in and start year one, we are a great choice. Unfortunately, starting as a true freshman is pretty unlikely especially with Gus. If your criteria is to go to a school and get bigger, stronger and get coached up to be a 1st round draft choice, UGA and bammer are much better choices. How painful is that to say. Gus has brought in retread buddy JB would can't recruit and sure isn't doing a lot of coaching. You think bammer isn't driving home that Webb shouldn't go to Auburn because we will not get you ready for the next level. Anyone watching Horton or Kim out there completely overmatched? Smith absolutely should have been a 1st round draft choice for us on the OL last year but wasn't. Gus had a chance to go out and get a young, energetic rising OL coach and as usual he went with what was comfortable - JB. Don't recruit that OL and this is what you get. I really hope that I am wrong here. Why Troxall and Brahms didn't get some playing time yesterday is beyond me. Yes I know that the coaches know much than me, but when you play like that coming down the stretch leading by 10 and can't sustain one drive, you start questioning how much the coaches really do know. We didn't steal JB away from USC, Ohio State, UGA, or any other power. We took him away from UConn.

    2019 4* PF Jaylin Williams commits to Auburn 9/15/18

    For the young ones around here, I believe #45 in the picture above is Bobby Cattage (from Huntsville). We signed Cattage, Earl Banks and Eric Stringer the same year. We should have been very competitive in the SEC with the talent we had.

    2019 5* OG/C Clay Webb

    Bammer has freshman OL come in and play. It takes us 4 games into the season to find out what our OL starters should be. I really hope JB will find his starting 5 coming out of spring and let them practice together as a unit all fall and pray for no injuries. Gus still doesn't understand if you are going to CONSISTENTLY compete with the big dogs you have to recruit with them. He doesn't like the smell of wolf recruiters but he better learn how to hold his nose!!

    2019 5* OG/C Clay Webb

    Agree, with a young energetic home run hire we may have had a chance with Webb. It would have been an uphill battle all the way. Kid and family love bammer and they have been all over him, like a recruiting machine does. We screw around and change coaches often and, well, you know the story. JABA. We are wasting time trying to recruit Webb from this point forward.

    Hand's contract expires today

    He will get a huge raise just like Gus and all the assistants. On the field performance and recruiting are meaningless. We are getting soaked by Gus and his crew. $50MM for this product. Watching UGA/OU and amazed at how well the OL's perform. Our OL was dreadful the last 2 games and no real help on the way. Hand cannot recruit an OT if his life depended on it.

    JS played a poor game, but the OL was dominated. We couldn't run against UCF. Their DL dominated us. We lose the majority of our OL including our stud OG Smith. Our OL next year is going to be a concern. Our OL should have dominated this year. It should NEVER be dominated. I put that on coaching.

    Official Postgame thread

    Would love to hear some of the real coaches on this board weigh in. It looked like our OL got totally dominated. How does that happen against UCF? I think the team was not prepared to play. Really didn't want to be here. That's where the HC has to come up with a way to motivate. We were not motivated today. So do we have some poor coaching or do we just not have a coach that can motivate? Or both? Looked similar to AU football games over Gus' career. I have no idea how this team beat UGA and bammer.
