  1. And don’t ever doubt that when Saban is gone Paul Bryant JR and the rest will be back to doing the exact same thing or worse to Alabama that our PTB are doing now. Saban got control and won which kept them at bay. This is the only thing that saves them from this currently.
  2. I am not as plugged in as others…Hollywood can’t come up with new ideas for movies but what I have seen in 60 years would make a Blockbuster movie that people would swear there is no way it’s true.
  3. And the Alabama machine has no influence on Alabama politics.
  4. I don’t know how to take this….
  5. Yep. Hoover had first shot but said he would have to compete for starting job….Thompson was more than happy to provide the starting job and to go get wide receivers to assist.
  6. https://www.saturdaydownsouth.com/auburn-football/kevin-steele-spurns-maryland-for-acc-job-per-report/ Kevin Steele spurns Maryland for ACC job, per report Keith Farner | 2 minutes ago Kevin Steele is returning to the sideline, but not at Maryland after all. Chris Low of ESPN reported that Steele, the long-time defensive coordinator has signed with Miami to be its defensive coordinator. Low last week was set to go to Maryland and join the staff of Mike Locksley, but instead will join Mario Cristobal and the Hurricanes. A well-respected defensive assistant, Steele was with Auburn from 2016 to 2020, and he was a Broyles Award finalist in 2017 and a semifinalist in 2019 as the top assistant coach in college football. He moved to Tennessee briefly between the coaching changes at Auburn after Gus Malzahn was fired, and before Josh Heupel was hired at Tennessee. Steele, 63, has been in coaching since 1980. He got his start at Tennessee, his alma mater, as a student assistant and quickly worked his way up to coaching UT’s outside linebackers in 1982. Steele returned to Tennessee in 1987 for a 2-season stint coaching defensive backs. Steele was Baylor’s head coach from 1999-to-2002, and went 9-36. In recent years, he’s been a defensive coordinator across the SEC West, including Alabama (2007) and LSU (2015). Steele also worked at Alabama in 2008, 2013 and ’14 in non-coordinator positions.
  7. https://pokesreport.com/s/2199/report-on-leading-candidate-on-oklahoma-state-defensive-coordinator-were-not-buying Photo by Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports Oklahoma State Football Report on Leading Candidate on Oklahoma State Defensive Coordinator, We're Not Buying By Robert Allen January 19, 2022 1 661 Tweet Share (17) Jump to Discussion STILLWATER – There is a report out on Twitter linking current Auburn defensive coordinator Derek Mason to the vacant Oklahoma State defensive coordinator position. Mason is an outstanding coach that crossed paths with Oklahoma State as the assistant head coach and co-defensive coordinator for Stanford and head coach David Shaw when Oklahoma State beat the Cardinal in overtime in the Fiesta Bowl 41-38 on Jan. 2, 2012. © Jake Crandall | 2021 May 18 Derek Mason at Auburn Mason is the highest paid assistant coach on the staff of Auburn head coach Bryan Harsin. He is making $1.5 million annually. Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy has spoke of the need to take advantage of the situation the Cowboys are in with their football program. One of those areas is coaches’ salaries and our sources have told us that Gundy might be able to go as high as $1.5-million in hiring the new defensive coordinator. We have also been told that raises for all of the full-time Oklahoma State assistant coaches in the works soon. Perhaps as soon as this week’s Oklahoma State Board of Regents meeting. The question is would Mason take a lateral move in position and salary. He and Gundy have never coached together before and the resumes don’t line up with any common coaching connections. That isn’t always the case with Gundy hires as he has hired coaches, he was unfamiliar with in the past until he interviewed them. Another hang up with Mason is that he has coached cornerbacks and defensive backs primarily in his career. If the current staff were to remain with the positions they’ve been coaching, then the defensive coordinator or as happened with Jim Knowles, a younger coach, would need to coach the linebacker position. Under Knowles, most recently Koy McFarland and prior to that current Houston Baptist defensive coordinator Shane Eachus coached the linebackers. Pat Kinnison - Chief Photographer Gundy told Pokes Report last Friday he was going outside to hire a new DC. Pokes Report put out a list of potential defensive coordinators with NFL and college backgrounds last weekend. It was on Triple Play Sports Radio and here on Pokes Report that Gundy first made public that he was going outside the current staff to make the defensive coordinator hire. We believe that North Carolina State defensive coordinator Tony Gibson, Minnesota defensive coordinator Joe Rossi, UAB defensive coordinator David Reeves, and Houston defensive coordinator Doug Belk are potential candidates.
  8. Going to take a deep breath and sleep on this one. This needs to be addressed tomorrow by Harsin/Mason. I know we are in a new world I just don’t know how you recruit players with one foot out the door (if true) and have any credibility.
  9. Game has changed. Harsin had to go with the hand that was dealt him. With portal next years team will not resemble this one. Year after even bigger changes. Coaches will adapt or move on. I think Harsin gets it and will give him the time. I hate losing but have hope for the future.
  10. Been bad all year for everyone. Look at last drive in Iron Bowl. Not sure if they are that bad or have an agenda.
  11. Exactly, I have been around a long time and our standards shouldn’t be lowered. That speaks to the current state of our program. 40 years ago I would be beside myself now it’s JABA
  12. Seriously no one has even been posting all week at least there is some life.
  13. So tired of Auburn coaches playing not to lose instead of playing to win
