Re: The Vent and Coaching change thread

Nonsense.

You're buying into the fictitious hype too many people are spreading.

Re: 2015 - Eurndraus Bryant

Wonder if we are considering offering him then placing in prep or JUCO, whichever he qualifies for?

Re: Marquavius Lewis

7 of those guys on the list will be new arrivals.

Of the rest, I'd wager that 6-8 of them never play any more meaningful snaps here. I think the incoming talent is going to overtake them.

Re: The Vent and Coaching change thread

I think even if we'd gone 9-3 we'd still be facing this.

Other programs had already been negatively recruiting against us the last couple of years.

That offhanded 2-3 year remark is killing...

Re: QB Next Season?

I read two interesting, contrasting interviews with Nick Saban this year.

First was after they played LSU. He was crediting the defense, and crediting the hard work and conditioning the players...

Re: '15 JUCO DL Ulric Jones

If you watched and focused solely on the DL, our problem was lack of talent, lack of speed, and lack of explosiveness.

Didn't matter who was coaching them.

You could see this coming last year...

Re: QB Next Season?

I agree, the series of plays supposedly called by GA were a thing of beauty. No wasting time, no letting the clock run down waiting for a play to be called in, just get up to the line and bring it.

Re: Spurrier Jr in talks with Stoops

My only question is how much of that was because Cooper is a great athlete, and how much due to Jr's coaching?

We've had some great WR's while Jr has been here, but we've also had an inordinate...

Re: 5* QB Jarret Stidham

So we were out worked by a guy that had just left a HS coaching job and discovered the kid in the 7th grade?

Re: 5* QB Jarret Stidham

The kid in Texas? No contact has been reported, but it would be silly not to call him.

If youre talking about Watson, no site I've seen reported him as receiving an offer from us.

Re: 5* QB Jarret Stidham

Same game plan that beat Tajh 4 straight years.

Watson's a better QB than Tajh, Clem's OL this year was better than the previous 5 years, and our DL played crappy.

Hindsight's 20/20.

Re: 5* QB Jarret Stidham

Most schools offer wayyyy more guys than they sign.

One thing for sure, it wouldn't cost a dime for HBC to call the kid and tell him what we have to offer.

If he says no....big deal. But if...

Re: 5* QB Jarret Stidham

There's no limit as to how many you can offer, or how many unofficial vists you can have.

There is a limit on official vists.

Was he interested in us? Who knows? We never even offered. I bet...

Re: THE Vent and Coaching Change Discussion Thread

I agree with you, I've never felt that Ward was the root of our problems. We simply didn't have the talent on the DL. People can blame Ward, but it's deeper than that, it goes back to Lawing and EJ,...

Re: THE Vent and Coaching Change Discussion Thread

Doesn't change the fact they take winning seriously, have the killer instinct, and do what's needed to win.

They fired their HBC one year after winning a National Championship because he wasn't...

I know you have a bizarre, pathological hate for Hyman, but he still deserves his share of credit.

Re: 5* QB Jarret Stidham

And that's why I said, "supposedly".

That said, the guy not only was one of the best QB's in the nation, he was from Georgia. And we didn't offer.

Re: 5* QB Jarret Stidham

He had offers from Auburn and Ohio State, among others, so they thought they had a chance to get him out of Texas.

If we don't at least make contact with him, it's just another sign that our...

Re: 2014-15 Early Enrollees

With all of the guys decommitting, may as well give him a shot, maybe he'll come in with a chip on his shoulder. Even being short he'd tackle harder than...

Our recruiting took a hit when Shane Beamer left, as RC he had a lot of talent coming in. You can partially trace our dip in talent back to when he left. There were other factors, like reduced...

EJ was there two years.

Big difference between Auburn and us is killer instinct. They expect to win, and win big. They fired Chizik one year after winning a National Championship.

Re: THE Vent and Coaching Change Discussion Thread

We have no offensive identity. We train OL for a zone read, but we run a hybrid option/Chuck n Duck/power I/ZR with an immobile QB.

Our HBC, who is supposed to be calling plays, isn't. And when he...
