Maybe this is the year Auburn has back to back good seasons. But based on the last nearly 30 years you have to bet against them until they prove otherwise. Talented team but tough schedule
Anyone who has worked at CFA can tell you strips > nuggets. That brine the former gets results in a superior product compared to the latter.
I would be pretty surprised, barring major injuries, if they are not 12-0 They do lack depth at o-line as well
as a UGA fan, the trip to LSU is my number 1 worry on the schedule
Of course, he is coming back
Ok, cool But why is this on SDS?
I was pretty surprised that was not on the list
If I remember correctly the 2016 class that Alabama signed was not only #1 in the country but the highest rated class ever signed by Saban. Between the true freshman last year that contributed and that uber class from 2016 that is a lot of experienced talent. I think the only fans that need to be worried about the departing talent are fans of opposing teams
Not sure if it is that high but I am a fan of Morris and hope he does well
Sure he will be a contributor, and UGA would have loved to have him, but he should have proofread that before posting it. "Mad it happen" and "without further or due" made me chuckle
I don't know about $50 million but either almost every coach except Saban is drastically overpaid or Saban is drastically underpaid. Possibly some combination.
"Stetson Bennett is listed as the third quarterback" Didn't he transfer out?
Seems like deja vu. There was the entitlement under Urban and Muschamp had to weed that out (I think given a little more time Muschamp would have been solid at Florida) and now you have it again with Mullen having to fix the culture created by Mac
They have potential but they need to get over the Kentucky/A&M/UGA/Clemson slump they're on if they want to get to the next level. Add in wildcards for Florida and Tennessee, who knows how they'll look under new coaches, and USC could be anywhere from a 6 win team to a 10 win team. I am a huge fan of McClendon and believe he can turn their offense around. Looking forward to week 2
can I assume, based on your reading comprehension, you are a Tennessee alum?
hate it for him. all those injuries, he never came close to his potential
my girlfriend was at this. it was not a big deal and the woman there enjoyed it and had a good time. no one was forced to be a part of anything they did not want to be. this is just the media making a deal out of nothing
From UGA. He is incredible recruiter, and he was the acting head coach during UGA's bowl game after Richt was fired but before Kirby took over. I hate how good of a pick-up it was for USC to get him
Same argument can be used against UGA and Richt. But it is currently on a different level than it was before.
As much as it stings, it is kinda funny
is 4? Some reason I thought they could appear in up to 5 I am going off memory so I certainly could be wrong
Now USC and Florida have guaranteed to beat UGA Looks like it will be a rough year for UGA
First, I doubt Fields will redshirt. But if I understand the new rule he can play in up to 5 games and still have a redshirt applied. So it is possible he gets notable game experience and has the redshirt still.
Second catch was more impressive to me
We all hate you and people like you.
from what I have read, it depends. In the past hardship waiver meant they could play immediately. recently the ncaa, in most cases, started adding an extra year of eligibility on the back end and had players sit the first year after transfer. so will see what happens here. even if granted hardship he may still have to sit in 2018, but I hope not. And Coach Smart, I am sure, has everyone looking into a way to have that exception made so D-Rob can play in 2018.
I would be surprised if he went anywhere else
6 wins will be tough but I think they get there. It might really come down to that WVU game, setting the tone for their season.
Remove Cam Newton in 2010, who would have an extremely high WAR, Auburn is basically an 8 with team on average the last 12ish year. Minor fluctuation here and there but they stay around 7-9 wins almost every season. So winning 10 games last year, including regular season wins over UGA and Alabama, can certainly put much of that on Stidham. If they have another 10 win, or better, season this year then can certainly say Stidham's WAR is pretty high.
UGA adjusted pretty well that second half/OT though. Oklahoma basically stopped scoring after that. I think over the course of a season the defense would win more than they lost.
