  1. I did not start the topic here, I just replied to what I thought was incomplete information. You think I should read it here and then reply somewhere else? Besides, this is the only forum I read.
  2. I did not see the program and do not know what they covered but this is not "revisionist history" at all. An old and well known tale. Alabama was in the midst of an eight year span where they went 0-7-1 in bowls. Their last bowl victory came after the 1966 season against a much larger and more physical Nebraska team. Alabama scored on their opening drive behind Kenny Stabler's passing. After a successful onside kick, they scored again. Another onside kick led to a field goal and Nebraska was down 17-0 and their offense has not yet been on the field. Seven turnovers doomed Nebraska's c
  3. It took another four or five years for Alabama's recruiting to return it to the upper echelon of college football. That Nebraska game, by the way, changed who plays on kickoff return forever. As was typical at the time, Nebraska had their offensive linemen of the return team. Alabama kicked with a small but quick team of running backs, receivers and linebackers. Hence, successful onside kicks.

  5. I have not seen any info on New Williams. What is his status?
  6. Our running attack is already a double-option. It only takes minor tweaks to the motion back's timing, path and positioning to make it a triple-option. The change would not affect the assignments of anybody but the QB and that one running back. And, it will stop teams from crashing down on the QB with an end because they can't do that and defend the outside.
  7. Here is the reason Smith is working at quarterback: When Franklin is in the game teams are going to send an end straight at him every time so he can not keep the ball. The answer for this strategy is the old triple-option. The path of the back that goes in motion will be modified so he can be a trailing back for a pitchout or the back will stop and stack behind the tailback. If the end goes for the QB he will leave the outside vulnerable to the third option. The problem with this is if you prepare a triple-option attack, you will have no one to run it if Franklin gets hurt. Certainl
  8. Anthony Hines III: A 16-yr.-old linebacker with 65 D-1 offers. He says he wants an Auburn offer but does not have one. His first offer came from Miss. State when he was 14. Wonder why we haven't offered.
  9. I can not believe people are reading that and thinking that he is accusing us of cheating. He is saying that people were shown that the Hogs have improved and would be a force to be reckoned with, i. e.,they are better than "people in that stadium and on the other sideline" thought they were. Geez.
  10. I am astonished at the people that want to do more than the written policy calls for. Every player on the team know the policy. They know exactly what is supposed to happen to Marshall. University policy cuts both ways and should be binding on Gus too. You want to send a message? When kind of message does it send if they tell you one thing and do something else? That they can not be trusted? Ignore their "policies" because they are meaningless? That will go over well..
  11. Auburn has a WRITTEN drug policy that specifies no loss of playing for a first violation. If this is a first offense, then neither Marshall nor Mincy should lose playing time. However, if either have failed a test previously we would not know. If these are second offenses, they will lose half a seasons. No one should receive punishment that is not called for in the written policy.
  12. Anybody know where a replay can be seen?
  13. Troy just rolled up more than 600 yards on Ark. State. This makes our offensive performance seem less impressive. Also SoCal did a far better job of defending Wash. St. than we did. I never know what to make of these types of comparisons.
  14. Go to content.tigerland.com. That will get you to tigerland.
  15. Ouch! The ESPN schedule shows the game Saturday on ESPN but not ESPN3. I don't have access to ESPN.
