1. we are in transition-new offensive and defensive systems and we will be a good team in 2 seasons.
2. we have coaching issues- we will not be good for 5 years.
Alabama fans love Alabama football
Auburn fans love Auburn University
We'll be a good team next year and a great team in two.
Definitely #1. I think CGC has hired a couple of pretty good coordinators and as the guys learn the system they will only get better.
All Auburn All the Time!
I am with our coaches .... players.... and team...
Now lets go eat some corndogs...
I think #1. While I would prefer that we had a bunch of young players playing beyond their years its obvious we don't have that. The decision to take the team in a different direction both offensively and defensely has delayed the progression of the team but I do believe the talent is there. I also believe the coaching staff is solid and will get us there.

#1. CBVG was a home run hire. I have no doubt he will have our defense playing lights out in time. CGC may have to let him make some coaching changes, I don't know. Special teams are already excellent. Recruiting is great. All we have to do is have a solid offense.
War Eagle !!!
#1. CBVG has proven that he is one of the best assistant coaches in college football while at Georgia by winning the Broyles Award. Good coaching isn't lacking on this team. Just look at how Texas and Georgia dealt with new coordinators the past couple of years. Things started off rough for them, but look where they are now.
Answer is 1. Using benchmarking, one of the reasons a team like Alabama is praised (or if using our #1 rival is too unpalatable, USC) is because of a pro style offense. Who cares, right? Well, 5-stars do. They want to be 'pro ready' because being 'pro ready' means that you have a chance to make a whole lot of money. Greg McElroy is in the NFL right now. 'nuff freakin' said.
This is why you make a change to a pro-style offense. And a defensive minded coach like Chizik probably doesn't like rapid 3 and outs that a spread can give. Switching to pro-style will give the defense more of a chance to perform optimally. And hiring someone like CBVG shows that he's serious about improving D. As was brought to my attention, in the first 3 games we're giving up 91 yards less than we did at this point last year.
I think that CGC is even giving the naysayers what they want. If only they will see it.
You grad, bro?
