    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.

    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!!

    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.

    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.
