My main reasoning for picking them is that even with Arkansas struggling in recent years, this has always been a close game. I don't think A&M is that much better than they were last year, and Arkansas is clearly worlds ahead of where they were last year.
Agreed. A lot of 3 and outs coming for State's offense. That won't be good for their defense as the game goes on.
I don't disagree. You can watch Bo Nix and see the potential is there, which brings up the question of why, in a year and a half, has there been no progress made on his development? Last year I defended him because his o line was absolutely pitiful, but the o line play has been a little better this year, and was a lot better against SC, when Nix played probably the worst game of his career. So he has no more excuses.
Which is exactly why Leach seems to have shown Hill the door.
I don't disagree with you. But at this point, they shouldn't have rushed to change it, because it makes it look as though Kylin Hill is the one that got them to change it, and a single player should never have that much power. Had I been the governor, I would have had it placed on the ballots during the election next week and have the people of Mississippi vote on whether or not to keep it. If they voted to keep it then Kylin Hill would have no longer had a leg to stand on.
That was always Tuberville's recruiting strategy. Get the best players that really want to be Auburn Tigers. If they aren't sure if they want to be here, then they don't need to be here.
That was my thinking too. If he's considering Auburn, he's looking more at his potential to start week 1 over the scheme he'd be playing in.

That's really what I got from his comment, too. It wasn't really taking a shot at anyone as much as it was just kind of an honest reflection of what happened. In the heat of the moment, he probably had that dual feeling you have when your kid does something dumb and gets hurt--the feeling where you're mad at them for disobeying you, but you're also sad and scared cause you want them to be okay.
He's won a lot more than the coaches that were there before him. You're not going to win championships at Texas Tech or Wazzu. Just winning 10 games multiple times at those places is equally as impressive as winning a national championship at a traditional power.
Absolutely. I'd rather have a team full of 2 and 3 stars that take pride in wearing the jersey and show it everyday than a bunch of blue-chip 4 and 5 stars that only view it as a pathway to the NFL.
I think it's great what Leach is doing. It's his way or the highway, and that's the way it should be. SEC football will go on with or without any one player. I don't remember who it was, but I've heard a story of one new coach meeting his team for the first time, and he starts the first meeting of with "Fellas, let's get this straight. This will not be a democracy. This is a dictatorship. When I say, you do. You will give me your opinion only when I ask for it." That's how the player-coach relationship is supposed to be. When the players have more power than the coach, that's when problems arise.
Exactly. I don't disagree with people that thought the flag needed to be changed, but don't do it because some college kid pitches a hissy fit over it.
They claimed they did briefly review it, and there was no evidence to overturn it. Idk what they thought they saw, but we shouldn't be talking about SEC officiating every week.

Definitely. I think those are the only two schools being mentioned at this point, not that it's much a surprise.
Got a real Brett Favre vibe from watching him play. Kid can make all the throws, but he made a couple bad decisions. But even the bad decisions were perfect throws.

As bad as we've looked so far, we have their number over the past several years. Until they beat us again I'm not overly concerned about A&M. We usually match up very well with them.
The rapid testing is also not as accurate as the 24 hour test, which isn't surprising. With any test, the quicker you get the results, the less accurate it will be. Idk which are being used by these schools, though.
This is Norvell's first year at FSU. I really doubt they'll fire him after one year. Kiffin will be at Ole Miss next year for sure. After that, it's anyone's guess. Everyone thinks Dabo will succeed Saban at Alabama, but I actually think it'll be Kiffin.
As I said above, that's my biggest knock on Gus. His offense has always been dependent on great o lines. 2010, 2013, and 2017 we went to the SEC Championship with great o lines. That's been the biggest difference between those teams and the rest of the teams since he's been here as OC or HC. His offense works, but only with a great o line. There can even be average to slightly above average talent elsewhere, but there has to be a great o line.
That's what's more disappointing than anything. Gus's offense has always been dependent on great o line play. We had it in 2010, 2013, and 2017, and went to the SEC Championship game each year. It baffles me why he doesn't start each recruiting cycle by targeting offensive linemen.
Georgia's offense is already lightyears ahead of where it was last year. It's just that when you compare it to Alabama, Ole Miss, and Florida, who are putting up 40 points like it's nothing, Georgia's offense seems lackluster in comparison, but so does everyone else's offense. Bottom line is Georgia's defense is good enough that the offense doesn't even have to score 30 every game. They just need to keep the defense off the field enough for them to stay rested.
Gus Malzahn won’t reveal the name of Auburn’s Wildcat package for 300-pound TE J.J. Pegues but teases that it could be expanding
Best athlete on the field.
Agreed. If Bigsby isn't getting at least 20 touches a game then Morris needs to be removed. He's clearly our most naturally gifted player on offense.
Yep. Welcome back hogs.
