  1. The Tua one was the worst. Moved the entire family from Hawaii.
  2. Um did u forget Gus was a part of that staff and recruited most of those players. He was only gone one year. What hurt Gus is when Nick went crying to the NCAA and the rules were changed. He never adapted after losing his greatest advantage .
  3. No argument here. I am thinking they were safe choices with Auburn history vs high risk/ high reward. Did it in b-ball so Idk
  4. No needed more time under their belt IMO. U could tell Kirby was ready.
  5. I agree with u, but it seems to be some divide based on extra curricular activities. Would have loved to see him get a second chance. Just put parameters in his contract and let it ride.
  6. I think Chiz and Gus were hires of comfort or familiarity with the program. The programs that they were at probably had little to do with it. Respectfully
  7. Cmon the worst coach in Auburn history when he didn’t have a losing season. Yes u can argue he wasn’t the greatest but definitely wasn’t the worst. Especially in todays climate. He lost his biggest advantage because of the rule changes but the defenses was always top tier once Steele took over. Also outside of beating Bama there were wins against Oregon and Washington to name a few. Beating Bama is very significant because they have been the standard in the conference for a while. So far Bama has been the last hurdle standing in Auburns way of them doing anything significant. Actually Bama has been in everyone’s way so yes beating them matters. Yes he blew games that he should have won on the road. However, Out of all of that only Georgia was the major thorn in Auburns side. Yes it was time for change to see if Auburn can get to new heights but the worst coach I think not.
  8. IMO Hugh Freeze was there for the taken. There wouldn’t have been a learning curve and would be a better fit. Took a chance on CBP and so far it has paid dividends
  9. Boise State was the big dog in the conference and has been for a long time. Boise St had better players than most of the teams in the MW which is the same thing u need to win the SEC. Like Kirby said he is only good as the players that he has.
  10. Respectfully by the time Nix went down the 10 Win mark was already shot. U could argue coaching cost Auburn 4 games and maybe a 5th in which the trick play turned the PSU game. These are interesting times. Gus wasn’t the greatest coach but having good players masked those deficiencies and kept them competitive. Some mentioned CBH seems to play the guys that know the entire playbook and would just rather coach them up vs play ur better players and see how they respond in live action. It will be a very interesting season to say the least
  11. I would say players coach and so was Orgeron
  12. That’s why I was saying is being a players coach a bad thing. Sometimes being a hard azz doesn’t resignate well with everyone. Some people can do that and some can’t depending on who u are or the accolades u have. For example parents could be a hard azz back in the day but u can’t do that today. No matter how soft u think kids are u have to use more tact.
  13. I was referring to national championships. Sorry for the confusion
  14. The general consensus is everyone wants the team to compete for championships year in and out. However what are results that everyone would be happy with
  15. For conversation sake how many championships did Auburn compete for prior to Chiz and I am done.
  16. Yes wanting them to be better but history says otherwise. They were competitive but still averaged 8 or 9 wins per with a few double digit win seasons sprinkled in. Let’s see which direction the program goes from here because time isn’t on Auburn side with the two newbies coming in.
  17. I respectfully ask what does mediocrity look like.Within the past 12 years LSU, Georgia and Auburn have been pretty equal on the accomplishments. Only Bama has done the most. The rest of the conference hasn’t done a thing .
  18. Why does Gus have to be a marshmallow. There are different ways of coaching. If that was the case then why was the defense always ranked. Being a hard azz isn’t always the answer either. Look what happen to Singletary at the 49ers. Also look what that did for the off season. Thus CBH had to change some of his methods. All these comparisons to what different coaches did. Let’s just let it play out and see what happens. We are in a different day and age than when Coach Dye was at Auburn.
  19. All I have say is nothing from nothing leaves not. The results were already negative🤷🏿‍♂️
  20. I respectfully disagree on that. IMO in the Bama game all u needed was about two first downs and the game is probably over. A few zone read packages in which he aids Tank in the run game. U wouldn’t be asking him to run the full playbook. Those last few positions in regulation the offense was stuck in neutral. Anyways it’s a moot point. It’s 2022 moving on
  21. My prediction is 5-0 out the gate. TBD for the rest of the schedule. Penn State will be a squeaker but I expect the team to have extra juice and want pay back. If memory serves me correctly Auburn has been smashing LSU at AU outside of the collapse. Even in that game Auburn was ahead handily and then the second half happened. Mizzou defense was bad so the oline should be able to get some push and it will still be early in the year so the defense should hold if nothing else. Losses to Bama and Georgia Ole Piss and Arky Auburn finds a way to win more often than not whether u wanna say officiating or whatever. State I really can’t call. There have been some ugly games.
  22. Hopefully medical staff can work some magic with him like they did for Dean after Ohio State wrote him off
  23. Thats a good addition IMO. Beast in High School
  24. For the record I have been a so called Gus apologist. I thought he did a decent job considering the circumstances. Had he made a few tweaks I believe Auburn would have been right in the thick of things Year in and out. That’s neither here nor there. Just gotta see if CBH way is a better way to get there.
  25. The things is Auburn strength of schedule has been taken into account. They would have been the first two loss team in. The blueprint is there. Auburn just has to execute
