2019 Offical NSD Thread

Pickens going elsewhere and the abject failure in OL recruiting would top all of the previous NSD disappointments (Foster, Evans, CK), IMO.

Definitely would hurt for sure, but I don't know if it would top that.  We have been conditioned that Pickens would flip at any time.  The others came out of nowhere.  I mean Foster even had an AU tattoo on his arm.

Yup! He apparently sniffed out that AU prefered him at OT instead of DT. He wanted no part of being an OT.

True.  But a big part of our problem there is that we keep not going after the best OL coach available and sticking with guys Gus knows.  Grimes is a negative in recruiting.  Herb Hand was a mild positive at best.

Time and time again we've been beat over the head with "Recruiting is all about building relationships. You can't expect great results the first year" I don't know why Grimes doesn't get this same benefit.

Dumb question, but when y'all say mom making the final call - like call to whatever school he chose? 

Some parents do. Parents have to sign the NLIs also.

Niehbur with the continued play by play!! I WOULD LOVE LOVE LOVE to get his truthful unfiltered off the record thoughts about Pickens.  I am sure it is a doozy. Un real this kid has been committed for over 500 days and he is still un sure.

George and have mom have been handing off the phone to each other. Hoover's HC now walking out toward them.

Agreed. Also, CyKo, Foster and Evans were all at positions of much greater need.

What are you doing on here?  Go work out!  We need you healthy for at least 40 more years.  How else will I get my recruiting information if we lose you?  :poke:

Strange to me. Miami has slightly stricter admissions hurdles than Auburn. At least that has been my experience with people who have applied to both. Not sure if it’s different for athletes

Don't expect AU to sign many kids from McGill anymore.

I don't think anything is unsure. I think they are playing to the cameras.

Is TN crushed about this flip?  Something tells me, I doubt it.

Guess its too much to ask of our staff that they recruit actual offensive lineman.

Once Troop was out everybody who was paying attention knew Foster was gone despite the blood oath he signed with the tattoo, lol.
