I do not feel good about this hire, especially with a green offensive coordinator. Will Chip be looking over his shoulder?

No. And chip isn't a green OC. New at AU but isn't green.

Seems like Saban has a dozen of these types of analysts helping his team every year and it's no big deal.  I feel like we're making a bigger deal out of it than it really is.

Saban's had 'em for years.  To be frankly honest, I'm glad someone at Auburn has decided to copy what uat is doing relative to having staff on hand to better prepare our players and game plan for the opponent.  

At times, I've felt like Gus was deficient in game planning for his opponent - he creates a game plan each week for his offense and doesn't prepare for the team he faces.  It's like we've played checkers and the opponent is playing chess, and we just get out schemed with a coach that can't make adjustments during the game, on the field.

Bravo for hiring guys that do nothing but sit back and analyze opponents, find their tendencies and relay that info to the HC & Coordinators!  Welcome back Al!

One thing Coach Borges is good at is getting multiple good players, especially 2 RBs on the field at the same time and using that to his advantage.

He has and as @keesler pointed out, he was way ahead of the curve with it. Probably why they are always dominating and never accept just good enough. Keen to detail and I respect it.
