| SEC Rant|| Style of play and the Selection Committee - AUX3 on 6/15/14 at 8:04 pm|
How much will style of play factor into the Committee's selection process?
After listening to all of the "pundits" wanting to slow the game down - will a traditional offense get more votes than a HUNO? Considering most everyone on the committee is over 60 - I suspect this will be part of the disc...
| Auburn Sports Board|| Weakest Link? - AUX3 on 5/18/14 at 11:14 pm|
Which position is our weakest link?
Linebackers, Safety, or CB?
I've been looking for a weakness and it was hard to tell in the spring game. I'm guessing its got to be the linebacker position. They may be better at run stopping but - not sure we will cover the crossing or flat routes any bett...
| SEC Rant|| Perfect time to split from NCAA - AUX3 on 2/16/14 at 8:25 am|
If the NCAA allows a rule change because two coaches complain its the perfect time to take our ball and go home. There are plenty of large markets from coast to coast that could establish their own league, pay players, have real playoffs, and allow the rules to stay the same.
Would your school b...
| SEC Rant|| Admit it Bama Fans - - AUX3 on 2/13/14 at 9:06 pm|
After reading most of the comments about the new phantom health rule to slow down the game, it is clear to me that Gus is feared. This is not a flame. I think it is only fair that you man up and admit you fear Gus therefore your for the rule. Anything to help gain a competitive advantage over Gus is...
| SEC Rant|| Was Bama worn out for this game? - AUX3 on 1/2/14 at 11:56 pm|
Did Saban put them through a set of spring type practices because of the AU loss? Those guys looked worn out. How did Henry take the 2nd spot? Had to have been tough practices. Turned out to be a bad decision if you care about winning bowl games that don't matter....
| SEC Rant|| CJ Mosely -Why no Heisman hype? - AUX3 on 11/18/13 at 11:01 pm|
I hear about AJ all the time (which is laughable), but its been awhile since I've seen a LB as good as CJ Mosely. He seems like he makes every tackle, every big play, and is the main reason UA's defense is so freaking good. He's also been doing this forever it seems like.
I can't believe he didn'...
| Auburn Sports Board|| Are we like the old Tommy Frazier Nebraska teams? - AUX3 on 11/9/13 at 10:30 pm|
I have watched football for a long time - its been awhile since I've seen a team be able to line up and run the same play - left then right etc. The only team I could remember was the old nebraska option teams with Frazier. Is Marshall the next Tommy Frazier? :bow:...
| Auburn Sports Board|| Phantom False Starts on Goal Line?? Weird. - AUX3 on 9/21/13 at 10:38 pm|
I replayed DVR, guy never moved - either play. Not that it would have made a difference - but it happened twice when we scored. This is the new way to ensure money team wins.?? Unless someone saw him move - I didn't through my orange colored glasses....
| Auburn Sports Board|| Home Field Crowd - AUX3 on 9/15/13 at 6:29 pm|
I've never seen an SEC opener at Auburn have so many empty seats. Get out of your basement and go to the game. I don't know what the problem is but if you sat home so u could watch the Tahd and Aggies play you should be ashamed. I'm concerned we may have 50/50 at the UGA and UA games because AU folk...
| Auburn Sports Board|| Offensive Line - Most critical group this year? - AUX3 on 8/7/13 at 10:03 pm|
It seems we are loaded with skill players on offense. It also seems that our D may be more talented than they have been in awhile (can only go up) and they have a great leader with good assistants (no meddling by the HC). Its hard to get over confident after last year's debacle but I kind of feel li...
| Auburn Sports Board|| Best player with no talent - AUX3 on 7/26/13 at 7:16 pm|
Who is your favorite AU player of all time that wasn't really that talented but just out worked everyone. Good college player with no chance at the NFL
Freddy Weygan and Jason Miska come to mind- maybe Eddins ...
| SEC Rant|| Nick Marshall Odds - AUX3 on 7/12/13 at 9:34 pm|
What are the odds if Nick Marshall turns out to be a bad arse that this board will start a conspiracy AU cheated to get him? Either academics or money.
Better question - which one of you "insiders" will break it. :lol: :angry: :devil:...
| Coaching Changes|| Media Attacks AU w/ Petrino - More or Less? - AUX3 on 11/29/12 at 11:06 pm|
Its amazing to read the slanted articles and well timed attacks on AU the last 3 years. It's really unprecedented. I think most of it is because AU is open about making Faith / Religion a big part of the Program. With a Petrino hire and probably much less of the open faith comments - does the medi...
| SEC Rant|| Spread Offense vs. Pro Style Offense - AUX3 on 11/14/12 at 10:44 pm|
After watching A/M torch Bama in the 1st QTR last week and continue to see teams like Oregon in the hunt for the title every year - does it make sense not to run a spread offense?
Exciting Games = Yes
Chance to win Every Game = Yes (see Ole Miss improvement)
Advantage over Defense w/ Hurry U...
| SEC Rant|| Backup QB's - AUX3 on 9/13/12 at 10:38 pm|
After watching Arkansas fail with their backup QB and Auburn not even have a backup QB - What happens to your season if your starting QB breaks? How big of an impact? I don't see anyone winning the SEC much less a title with their backup QB - but I could be wrong. Rivers might could do it at LSU...
| SEC Rant|| Preseason Polls vs. Week 1 Results - AUX3 on 8/27/12 at 10:27 pm|
Will the polls swing in reverse if ranked teams lose in week 1? For example: If Michigan gets lucky and beats Alabama - should they move to No. 1, 2, or 3? Will Bama drop behind Michigan's current ranking?
If AU beats Clemson will they move up to 14 or better? My guess is - No to all of the a...
| SEC Rant|| Scott Loeffler Secret Decoder Phone - AUX3 on 8/23/12 at 10:40 pm|
It just occurred to me why Auburn's OC Scott Loeffler is using a secret decoder phone when he talks to Tom Brady.-
He is afraid Bill Belichick is secretly taping his conversations with Brady to relay any playbook discussions to Nick Saban via code. Similar to 2010 when Malzahn's signals were st...
| SEC Rant|| Most Important Position in College - AUX3 on 7/23/12 at 10:02 pm|
Which Position gives you the most wins?
Its obvious in the NFL - QB is most critical - Does the same apply to College?
IMO: QB is the most critical - hands down.
Note: Bammers please don't say the coach...
| SEC Rant|| LSU - Is Rivers pushing Mettenberger for 2012 QB? - AUX3 on 1/16/12 at 10:26 pm|
I thought I saw somewhere that Stephen Rivers, younger bro to Phillip Rivers, was pushing Mett for the job next year. Is he as good as his bro? I know he's like 6'6" but I thought he was a little lean. Would hate to face someone of that efficiency for 4yrs. Thoughts?...
| More Sports Board|| Status on Miami - Scandal - AUX3 on 1/15/12 at 11:27 pm|
I haven't heard anything else on the Miami scandal from this year. I keep seeing big name recruits signing up. Are they not going to get 2yr Post Season ban, bunch of scholly reductions? There dealing with issues worse the USC, OSU or any SEC program in the past 30 years. Since they recruit in S...
| SEC Rant|| Defense or QB More Important for Championships? - AUX3 on 1/10/12 at 11:11 pm|
I keep hearing Defense wins championships and I think that is very true. However, the only difference I saw in these two games was the QB play between the two teams. AJ played great. JJ played worse than the first game. Both Defenses were really good, but AJ hit open receivers and JJ hit the pip...
