How did we do compared to our biggest rivals

Recommended Posts

How did we do compared to our biggest rivals (especially, uga and spuat) in terms of the positions that matter in terms of beating those two rivals?

I dunno. Seems like a regular sized question to me.

 

*Edit - Why you gotta edit your post and try and make me look like a fool?

Seeing that we didn’t do well on both sides of the line I’m going to say not good. 

Thank you. Although, on the DL, we can at least be adequate given Garner's motivation.

How in the world did I forget Miller? I’m going to wait and see on Newkirk. 

Newkirk had a very strong juco season at DT. Yes he has to transfer that to the SEC but the potential is there.

This thread screams of yet another Gus bashing opportunity. 

It is the only reason some to come here to post.

We played them three times in the recent season and beat them twice.

We lost a SEC championship game against uga and spuat won yet another NCAA championship.  We still lagged behind.

if that’s the case everybody else including UGA lagged behind. I do believe Auburn has the talent to be compete and beat them both again next season. All three teams lose players at key positions and have unknown and unproven players replacing them. Offensive line will be key for Auburn, but having Grimes back should help since he has been with Gus before.

Everything you posted make sense other than us having Gus as our HC.

This is true and we had some serious momentum *but*  the culmination of the season was AU getting pushed around and beat by UCF while those two teams played each other for the national championship. Nobody but serious Auburn fans cares much about those other games and we are seeing that play out in this late recruiting season. It’s too bad but that’s reality.

As you said, serious Auburn fans care about those games. What others may think is no concern of mine and there's not the slightest bit of indication that winning or losing a given game has any effect on recruiting.

Hey, I loved those games and relished stomping both of those teams. I have to disagree though. I think losing those two games and the way we lost them killed the positive vibes and momentum those games created and have hurt us in this stretch run of recruiting (maybe it wasn’t meant to be but the Trey Hill recruitment comes to mind). I could care less what other fan bases or the ESPN blabber mouths think of us but I do care about the affect on recruits’ perceptions because of what that means come signing day. JMO.

Trey Hill had everybody from his preacher to his dentist to his extended family demanding that he go to UGA. I never understood why there was any optimism about him coming to AU. We'll have to disagree on the effect of late season games. I've seen us whup UGA, bammer etc. and then lose too many recruits to them to think a given game makes any difference. A three-year slide, yes, but not a game or two.

Exactly. There is also no way that Georgia finally having 1 good year boosted this class like it did. Part of it was the cupboard being stocked in Georgia high schools, but it's no coincidence that Kirby leaving bama for Georgia coincided with Georgia recruiting skyrocketing and bama recruiting dropping off.

Do you not understand our history in terms of recruiting?  Starting with  Dye who modeled our program after Dye's idol (Bear Bryant), AU has attempted to be as "adept" at recruiting as spuat.

You're right. Winning those 2 games had no positive effect on recruiting, which is clearly what this thread is about. But hey, keep complaining about the "mindless bashing".

Have no fear, you can be rather certain that I will continue to bash the mindless bashers.
