Lawsuit alleges Auburn pressured professor to change football player’s grade prior to 2020 Outback Bowl
Jay Jay Wilson was not a significant contributor last year at all. Doesn't make sense to go through all that trouble for someone that won't impact the outcome of the game. Just doesn't make enough sense to be credible in my opinion. Probably the only football player in his class, otherwise a more high profile player would have been a better choice to blame this on.
Jay Jacobs is now the assistant AD at UF if I am not mistaken. Regardless, I think most Auburn fans have a good respect for Gus as a person, but I think most of us were also ready for a change. We wish him well, but we are more excited about the Harsin era. No one is crying. While the money Gus received is huge, anyone who thinks these SEC schools flinch at the money are heavily mistaken.
Not saying it wasn't a blown call, but the "his reaction to go and get the ball" argument is poor. Most people who have a ball skirt by them would turn and run after it. Now the player that has the ball in his hands and gets stripped and then fights to get the ball back is where that argument would hold water, but a ball that squirted past someone trying to pick it up would almost always lead to an instant reaction like that. (again, not saying he didn't touch it, just that the logic is flawed)
I think it is funny that you say you can't wait for the Auburn game. Obviously Auburn is not really good this year and we have benefitted from blown calls, but to wish for a game to happen against a team that has nothing to lose hasn't really worked out for you guys in the past against Auburn.
"Auburn’s defensive line depth could soon be taking a hit", while this is technically a true statement, to say the defensive line is "taking a hit" because a walk-on who really got no playing time is transferring is kind of a joke. That is like saying ESPN took a hit when they lost Danny Kanell.
He actually started at Auburn and then transferred. Maybe he realized this stuff won't be tolerated there. Kinda funny that your attempted slam backfired a little bit since you didn't know any facts.
Vandy, SC, Kentucky, Miss State and Mizzou. Ha Ha.
I somewhat agree, but the flaw in your logic is with two of our biggest rivals. Mark Richt was let go because he couldn't get over the hump. Not saying Kirby has delivered a natty, but they are consistently in the hunt. Les Miles similarly couldn't get over the hump and now LSU is ranked number one most likely going into the playoffs. Could Greene and the trustees find someone to get us over the hump or would we go down the road of the other teams you mentioned? TBD.
How much of that record was the defense though. Just asking.
I understand that the mistakes are correctable, but at the end of the day, it was Wyoming. Shouldn't have been close enough for that to happen regardless.
Corbin didn’t even play. He is out for the year. You must be a big fan.
Not every five star is a home run recruit. There are busts that show up to school thinking that their ranking entitles them to a starting role. Bama gets more highly touted recruits than most, but to say that some of the rankings aren't based on factual skill is false. Plus, your statement lends to there being no need for development or coaching if recruiting rankings win championships.
Not saying this kid isn't worth it, but a jump that much makes you wonder if the rankings are based off of what school(s) the kid is being courted by or committed to.
"but matchups against LSU, Georgia, and Alabama loom large down the stretch." I am really worried about that 2nd matchup against LSU down the stretch. I was hoping we wouldn't have to play them again.
Pretty sure this bill was sponsored by an Auburn congressman who wants an Auburn vanity plate for the state of Florida. I think throwing the UCF Natty side in was the only way to get this thing to pass. Not real happy to support the BS going on here in Orlando, but I will definitely order an auburn vanity plate.
Not sure, but are you referring to the first touchdown where your player fell down because he was tired and tried to fake an injury to slow down the game? That was ridiculous. Auburn had a player do that a few years ago and it is just a bad look. Glad they didn't stop the game because he was tired.
haha. Nice win against Nichols!
Dan Mullen on Mississippi State’s three-game SEC stretch: ‘Hard not to say this isn’t the best league’
He didn't say Auburn was playing as well as everyone, just as many talented players. If you don't realize that UGA has had as much talent as anyone in the SEC the last few years, you are delusional. The Bulldogs just haven't been able to utilize it until this year. Don't confuse "talent" with how good a team is. You should know that better than anyone.
The scoring defense numbers are a little skewed in my opinion since the Auburn defense technically gave up zero points as well. The only points scored were off an offensive fumble returned for a TD. That has nothing to do with the defense. NCAA.com needs to adjust.
I guess I am confused by the word "upset". With Auburn being picked to challenge Alabama for top spot in the West, is it really an upset if they beat LSU? And while Alabama is the dominant team in this conference for the last several years, can you call a rivalry game an upset if the teams finished 1/2 in the west last year and everyone is predicting the same this year? I guess you can since technically #2 is not as high as #1, but just seems like a little weak content. Call me crazy, but I consider it an upset when the gap between the two is more than one spot in the division.
I know we have a lot of players with the last name Davis (including 3 WR's from last year's team), but can we put a picture of Kyle Davis rather than Marcus Davis?
Guys, I think highly of Woody, but if Stidham wants to come, I for one welcome him with open arms. If Woody is everything you think he is, he would have come in and won the job this year. There have been other Freshman QBs that won their starting role, but Woody didn't. I have all the confidence in Woody, but I have more confidence in Stidham.
Pretty sure that game still sold out.
Seriously? Blame the administration? I know for a fact recruits want to go where the fan base is strong and supportive. Hard to blame administration for lack of product on field when no one shows up to the games. You are fairly new to the SEC so I will keep it real for you. Attendance might be down a little at some other SEC stadiums the day, but Mizzou stadium was a little ridiculous. Stop blaming the administration and start showing up to the games win or lose. Be a fan.. Not just when they are competing for championships or stay a loser and keep making excuses why you didn't show up.
I would suggest using JFIII, but the kid hasn't shown the ability to hold on to the ball. Since we have had the most success with the big bruiser, maybe Montravious Adams could play both offense and defense... haha. I think Kam Martin would be good by himself against Alabama A&M. See what the kid can do. Maybe he can become an every down back.
Carlson is the best kicker in college football today. Just like in golf how some bad golfers play their slice or hook, many college kickers play into their natural draw which leaves room for error. Carlson's kicks always seem straight as an arrow from any distance. Auburn has had some really impressive kickers over the years and he might be the best. If only he had a little brother who would want to come to Auburn to be a kicker when Carlson leaves... oh wait, he does.
He is a quitter and put himself before the team. The fact that he is a quitter was probably nurtured by his mother. The millennial generation is full of these guys who think the world owes them something and that their happiness is above all else, even when you have given your word to be part of something bigger (not all millennials are like this, just a lot of them). These kids don't want to work for anything anymore. I see it all day in my business and in sports and it frustrates me beyond belief. Anyone who thinks that the parents have nothing to do with this are delusional as well. Raise your kids right and teach them about teamwork and hard work.
While I am still processing whether or not the increase in production is due to Lashlee or playing some of the weaker conference teams (minus LSU), the last four games definitely make you wonder if that first game against Clemson would have turned out differently. Auburn played horribly on offense in that game and still had a chance to win. Any different offensive philosophy would have clinched that game for AU in my opinion.
I know the replay said this wasn't targeting, but I feel they missed this call. Clearly led with the top of his helmet in my opinion. I understand in the heat of the game, these things happen when you are in a bang bang situation and it may not be intentional. What kills me is low class Alabama Rueben Foster making jokes about what should have been an illegal hit.
