Nope, Just Todd! I still believe CGM is gonna be what’s best for Auburn. I think if he gets the right offensive coordinator who will put him in his place when he tries to meddle with the O  thus screwing it up  (like Steele on defense) that he can take this program to a great team and program. Sorry if y’all hate that thought but it’s my opinion and I’m sticking to it.

FIFY.

Hard to know if Chip is a good OC or not. Gus isn't letting him do his job.

Hate it when people change my post and make it look like I wrote something that I didn’t or even believe is true!!!

"FIFY" lets everyone reading know that it was edited by the person responding to you. Fyi.

Your OP was not changed. It was quoted and added my opinion in bold & put FIFY in it. As long as people can read & comprehend at an elementary level they will know it doesn't look like you wrote something that you didn’t or even believe is true.

FWIW @toddc I would never edit yours or any person's original post to make it look like an opinion they do not have. The only reason I edit OPs are to add articles, article links, or remove anything in a post that would be not in line with AUF posting rules.

It happened to me a month ago and I left the board for a while and I just recently returned. I mistakenly thought it was happening again! Thanks for explaining.

When it happens PM a mod (or me if it was in the recruiting forum) to see what was up instead of leaving. There should be no other reason from us to edit actual posts than those I outlined above.

Hang around a few more days and someone will do it again. Happened to me three times last week. Infantile minds think it's funny.

Gus was hired to run his own offense. An OC is hired to do what he's told to do. Did you watch Saturday's game? Fisher calls his own plays. Spurrier called his own plays. The best game-day coach we've ever had at Auburn was Terry Bowden and he called his own plays. I think Gus needs to take back his offense and do what he does best, which is run his offense. If whoever the OC is doesn't want to follow instructions, he's in the wrong place.

So you think the mods are following your posts and changing them?

No. You didn't get what he and I are saying. Maybe I, at least, explained it poorly. The problem, which I see as unethical, is someone quoting you, changing the meaning of your post entirely without highlighting or otherwise indicating which part of your post they changed, and then below your quote putting the weak "FIFY".

 

Here's an example, using your post above:

Status Tracker: How firm are the Auburn commits?

By Keith Niebuhr
 

Every week between now and the early signing period (which begins Dec. 20), Auburn Undercover will give a status report on each of the Tigers commits. Who's solid to Auburn? Who might not be? Who plans to take visits to other schools? Who doesn't? We'll update this based on all the current intel -- and by using our own intuition. We've put these recruits into four categoriess -- solid, medium, soft and de-commitment watch -- based on the information we have right now. Things change in a hurry, which is why we plan to update this weekly.

Solid: Doesn't appear to be looking around. May take an official visit to another school but there doesn't seem to be much concern from Auburn's end.

Medium: Seems to be at least moderately solid but is likely to officially visit elsewhere -- possibly even multiple schools -- and might not sign in December.

Soft: Flirting hard with at least one other school, enough so that one or more programs appear to be realistic destinations.

De-commitment watch: Auburn's odds of keeping this recruit in the class seems to be dropping with every passing day. Official visits to other schools are set up and either Auburn has lost its grip or the Tigers are moving in another direction.

I’m glad Mikey suggested this. This is an idea that would have my full support.

That's not an example of changing an original post which is what Todd & I were discussing. That's quoting a different post & inserting someone else's opinion in a way that it's easy for people to understand it's a different person's opinion, something every member can do as you just so astutely proved.

If you think things similar to my mis-quote of @cole256 aren't being done frequently you aren't spending enough time on the main football forum. Do you think what I did with Cole's post is ethical? My quote of him was obviously an exaggeration for the purpose of illustration, but there are things being done that are not so easily detected and are not done in good humor.

Check back. I didn't write that. I was quoting Cole. At least that's what it looks like. :)

It's not just about recruiting,  it's about player development. Auburn is light years behind in both.  Auburn players put their pants on one leg at a time just like Georgia players.

Definitely but someone like Swift doesn’t even need development. He was good as a true freshman. Someone like Boobie or Shivers needs involvement

Its more of a mentality issue from what I see. We play soft. There's a problem when an AU fan envies a Purdue team steam rolling over OSU or a Syracuse team taking clemson down to the wire. I don't question anyone's personal manhood on our team but I do question our team's manhood as a whole

It looks like the problem is Gus takes best available instead of need. If you take need every year and develop those players you have a good base of roll players. Hopefully those will be best available guys but if they are not, you still can not get behind on your recruitment plan. May not win mythical recruitment awards but you do not find the shelf empty. Some of the boards recruiting gurus correct me if I am wrong.

As it pertains to recruiting,  I think the problem  isn't the recruiting itself but who we're re recruiting. Gus constantly stresses the need for a strong running game but ths the offensive line continues to be horrible year after year. If you need to run the football,  shouldn't the main focus in recruiting be on Running backs and offensive linemen?

You spent all that time typing when you could have stopped at word seven. 😉
