re: I mean, Malzahn was a pretty decent coach. He beat Saban more than any SEC coach has - Broadside Bob
[quote]He beat Saban more than any SEC coach has[/quote] How many of those other coaches did Saban face inside JHS? To be clear, I was one of the very first on the Gus Bus and one of the last off. He did some very good things for us, and for that, I'll always be a fan. He had an innovative a...

re: Auburn fans what are your HC expectations? - Broadside Bob
[quote]outside of 3-5 record vs. Saban[/quote] While the above is true, and Saban has never lost to a former assistant, he's also never played one in JHS. For the record, I was one of the very first people on the Gus Bus and one of the last to get off. I love Gus for the moments he brought us...

re: AU and Bo NIx ? - Broadside Bob
At the moment, he's by far the best option on the roster. Will the new staff help him progress? TBD. Maybe Gus and Co. were not the best at QB development, but the kid doesn't strike me as all that coachable...never really had his but kicked in high school and seems to have brought an "I can ...

re: Structuring contracts - Broadside Bob
[quote]I think my biggest issue is the buyout. Buyouts are a protecting a coach from suffering the consequences of crappy performance. This is a merit based sport, why should coaching not be subject to merit based requirements?[/quote] It should, but the market won't support that....

re: Does Allen Green make this hire on his own? - Broadside Bob
[quote]Or does he go the Jay Jacobs chicken shite route and form a “search committee”[/quote] If I were Allen Greene, there is no way I would make that decision on my own, even if I could. AU HC is almost as bad a job as POTUS in that half the people already hate you on Day One (AU does pay bett...

re: Structuring contracts - Broadside Bob
[quote]Like it or not, if you want a good new coach, you are going to pay for it. If you want a big name coach, that is if you can get one to agree to come to Auburn, you are really going to pay for it[/quote] If you identify and hire a young, up and comer, you might get away with a modest base a...

re: Honest question: Is Gus sad? - Broadside Bob
[quote]He is owed 50% of 21 million within 30 days.[/quote] (1) Between taxes and Jimmy Sexton's cut, he'll never see a large chunk of that payout. Still, it'll be orders of magnitude larger than any severance package anyone here will ever see. (2) Any real competitor will never want to be fi...

re: How many of you have been to a game in 2020? - Broadside Bob
Took the refund option on our season tickets. Got the e-mail late last week with the offer for single game tickets for A&M and briefly considered going, but #1 figured we'd lose (worse than we did), #2 would have needed to scrounge up someone to look in on the dogs, and #3 masks everywhere, quiet c...

re: The Vandy kicker half time speech - Broadside Bob
[quote]I was somewhat on board with the whole Sarah Fuller thing until I heard about the half time speech. Did they really let someone that won a women’s soccer league championship address an SEC football team and tell them essentially “how winning is done.”? This is asinine, my 5th grade basketball...

re: Can we fire a 7-3 Gus? - Broadside Bob
Keep in mind that two of those wins came on the back of blown, game-changing call from the officials, and you could argue that a third (UT) turned on luck with a 6 point swing in two missed field goals and a 14 point swing on the 100 yard pick 6...they sure outplayed us. While a win is a win and yo...

re: You guys ready for the most unbiased announcer ever? - Broadside Bob
[quote]With Gary Danielson announcing the Iron Bowl. Its good to see such a professional who doesn't take sides and that doesn't care if Bama wins. Such a talent.[/quote] Skrink that. We need someone like Brent Musberger who can find the hotties in the stands. Funny how Bama plays ND for a natt...

re: question about home game tickets - Broadside Bob
[quote]I actually like the covid games for the ease of getting in and out, easy access to concessions and restrooms and being able to stretch out and stand without some old fart yelling to sit down. I do miss the energy and crowd noise. The canned background noise at the games is just sad.[/quote] ...

re: Gary Johnson Voters - Broadside Bob
[quote]If you feel someone would not do well at the job, then they haven't earned your vote, then you shouldn't vote for them. I 100% think a no vote is doing more good for your country than voting for someone who you think will not make a good President. And I think that's just a no brainer too....
