The AU Streak, Revisited: Now stands at 69 - FearlessFreep
The last time AU lost to a team not in a major conference (BCS AQ/P5) at the time of the game was October 5, 1991, when they fell 10-9 to Southern Miss. The victory over Memphis tops off AU's 24th consecutive undefeated season against non-major opponents. Here's a look at the rest of the SEC sch...

Sudden realization: AU coordinators make for unsuccessful HCs - FearlessFreep
Seriously, I was thinking about our recent history with DCs and realized that hardly any of our former OCs or DCs have gone on to any sustained success as HCs. Other than Petrino (who was only here for one season), the next most successful former AU coordinators are Gustav and Chiz, whose best s...

Don't know if anyone else noticed, but we played 9 bowl teams this year - FearlessFreep
Of course one of them was 5-7 San Jose State (who is in the Cure (For Insomnia?) Bowl vs GA Southern). And the one FCS team we played (who nearly beat us) is the #1 seed and odds-on favorite to win the Championship. Season still sucked rocks, but it's not like we lost to anyone as bad as, s...

Mark Richt was 10-5 vs AU in his 15 years at UGa. - FearlessFreep
That run included 2 SEC Championships, 2 wins in 3 major bowl appearances, 7 top 10 finishes and won 74% of his games. He never won a national title. By way of comparison, in his final 15 seasons at Alabama, Paul W. Bryant won 9 SEC Championships, won 5 of 10 major bowl appearances, had 11 top ...

Lester is a class act - FearlessFreep
Very good HC who seems like a great guy. He's a lot like Tuberville, only not an a-hole. If Gustav doesn't get things turned around next year and Lester's available, he'd be at the top of my list for AU. ...

What I'd like to see the rest of the season - FearlessFreep
Vs Idaho: JJ starts, running pretty much the same offense we ran against TAMU/UGa - emphasis on Jovon/Peyton, some 'safe' passes (nothing downfield), a little tempo here and there. Hopefully our D keeps it up and we can outscore them to get bowl eligible. If we're fortunate enough to get to a sizabl...

2015 SEC offenses that have failed to score a TD in a game - FearlessFreep
Even as the SEC has become the home of potent scoring offenses in recent years, 2015 has seen a plethora of games in which one team has failed to cross it's opponents goal line from scrimmage for four quarters (or, in the case of one unforgettable contest, BOTH teams): 9/19: Kentucky (vs Florida)...

If you go to page 20 of the AU board, you'll see a lot of threads bitching about how bad we looked against Jax State, and how JJ better get it together before we play LSU. If you go to page 20 of the UK board, you'll find [link=(http://www.secrant.com/rant/kentucky-sports/welcome-to-the-kentucky...

What a difference a year makes - FearlessFreep
October 5th, 2014: the day after we demolished LSU 41-7, the most complete domination of a ranked opponent by an AU team since the 2010 SECCG. We were a solid consensus #2 in the major polls, behind the only team that had beaten us in our 15 previous games (and that was in the final seconds of t...

The last time AU lost to a team not in a major conference (BCS AQ/P5) at the time of the game was October 5, 1991, when they fell 10-9 to Southern Miss. Saturday's thrilling come-from-behind overtime victory over a scrappy Jacksonville State squad was the 66th consecutive over such teams. Here...
