This game is more fixed than Trump vs Biden 

He didn't fall into their lap.  They went and paid the man a ton of money.  Like it or not, Bama wants to win a hell of a lot more than Auburn.  Been that way for a century.

It’s that time of year again!  Instead of trying to come up with something to say to start this up, I thought I would defer to a quote from Pat Dye: “You fight it when it don’t look good.  You fi

So all of that is Bo’s fault then? We cleared out the pipeline, we made things happen for his “daddy”, we ran Gatewood off. That’s Bo’s fault?

Lol, moving the goal post of the argument?  The thesis of my argument is Bo is getting preferential treatment.  Whether he is the cause of it or the coaching staff is facilitating it is irrelevant. 

It seems here, on your side of the argument, there are just as many people who think NOTHING is Bo's fault.  And, hate to spoil the "great kid" narrative, but there are just as many anecdotal stories that he acts as entitled as he is perceived.

But it was a dominant playbook in Arkansas high school football - best in Arkansas history - so I've been told.

As Arkansas high school football is the benchmark of all things football, I stand corrected.  🤪

It's time to acknowledge the awful truth that Gus doesn't understand football. 

He is not so much a coach, but a play choreographer.  I think he's actually stumped when his playbook doesn't work as planned.

there was an article today that quoted Teddy Bruschi (sp.?)  talking about Bruce Arians the same way. why Belichek loved to play against coaches like him.  so wedded to an offense that when it doesn't work, or the players aren't there to implement it, STILL continues down that path. never improvises or gets creative. just keeps on doing what doesn't work

I never once thought that Bo has won or lost us a game.   I do think as a fan base we had way too high expectations for him coming in and the head coach helped throw fuel on the fire to create unrealistic expectations.

I can buy this argument.

In 02 AU used a freshman because he was healthy, why not have given him a shot earlier?

I think he missed most of his senior season and red shirt freshman season with an injury and recovery.  I think caddy has been building his confidence and getting him ready for the step up.

It's this ^^^. Kid should have been sitting on the bench learning the position and fixing his footwork.

I never seen IG called from a throw over the middle end zone?

When the receiver obviously was supposed to be running there. Just dumb.

I think Bo could be a solid game manager, at his best. He'll need a constantly amazing OLine, and at least one WR that has a pretty great catch radius. He'll need that just to be good. But it's possible I suppose. The Gus version of AJ I guess. 

Bo would have been good somewhere where he could have been developed. AU needs an extreme makeover
