we are 0-2 as of yesterday...and the news on leonard williams doesnt sound good.
hope it gets better on wednesday........................................
Oh no he didn't
So.....The "news" on Leonard Williams wasn't true. Both his coaches confirmed this fact. But yes, we missed out on both of our "across the country" recruits. It happens when you try to pull a really good kid that far from home. Iowa wasn't a bad choice for Kozan. They put a lot of OL in the league. I can't say I blame him past the snow/girls/weather/proximity to the beach. I couldn't do it, but good for him.
Yawn we are probably 15-100 right now and the best we can do is 25-100 or 25% of the athletes that were probably offered. the fact is that we are in the running with big time recruits a lot longer in the process than ever before. the Auburn brand is getting stronger and the last time I checked greatness is built over time, not one recruiting class. Be patient grasshopper, Auburn is heading in the right direction, we have 15 great commits so far and are ranked in the top 20 with only 15 commits. Proud of our coaches and the job they have done over the last year with all the bashing we are taking on the recruiting trail.
Another bammer amoung us.
Knew it was comming. Somebody Said something that wasnt sunshine and and puppies...Now we have bammers...
Gees. So what now everybody that is disapointed is a bammer. Must be fun to live in a world of judgement.
Look just because the guy asked a very honest question he is a bammer?? Come on. If you guys could get over yourselves for a second and not judge everybody that says something not quite to your liking it would be a more fun world.
If you cant be honest....whats the point of being anything?
HAHA...I am not a "Bammer".
I personally feel like we put a lot of effort into Armstead and came up short, while Oregon didnt recruit him hard till recently and they landed him. I just think we should have put all that effort into Leonard Williams or another top DL in our region(just my opinion) Dont get me wrong, Armstead and Kozan are great recruits, but personally I didnt think we would land either one.
We need to close strong...WAR EAGLE!
...and you don't think the coaches are putting plenty of effort into landing Leonard Williams? They can't live at the kid's house dude. I always find it amusing when people with little to no information make statements like yours about how the coaches should do this or do that
Too bad Auburn doesn't realize the untapped expertise here on the message boards...I say we fire the entire coaching staff and hire a few posters from AUC...we'll never lose another game and we'll get every recruit we want!
Malzahn approves of NOW Boot Camp! Well...not really...but he would if he knew about it :) www.nowbootcamp.com
I have given you some upvotes. I get what you were saying. There was nothing negative in your OP. I was just letting you know that the good news could start Tuesday with Jordan Moore. Good luck to you cause you will probably continue to get DV's.
Which is the exact reason the up vote down vote thing should go away.
THe op made a statement and then got shouted down for being a "bammer". Funny. Typical of the boards now a days. I remember when we first came over here to 247....The original AUC didnt have this type of issue. WHY NOW.
Saban lost to La Monroe.

Yea I hate the voting system. I got in an argument with someone a while back that said he uses the voting system based on whether or not he agrees with someone. so, in other words, if he didn't agree with someone's opinion he gave them a downvote. I told him he was an idiot.
Either way, I feel bad for the OP here. he didn't even say anything negative. In fact, his entire OP was completely true and he was even hoping to things got better on signing day. Not sure where I see the need for a DV marathon on the kid.
"you're so vain, I'll bet you think this post is about you, don't you? Don't you?"
Because everyone is so darn negative. Grow some testicles and expect the best. It's not that big of a deal to have an opinion, but geez, does everything have to be so negative. If we don't finish with a top 10 class is it going to be the end of the world? Are your bills going to go unpaid? Is your family's health going to deteriorate? Is your car going to break down? Trust the coaches to get the most out of the players they sign. If they do, then we will be successful (that goes for any star rating). So many put their self worth in what the updykes and teabaggers do. If they sign a top 5 class, well AU better too. If uat-bag gets a five star, well AU had too. WE ARE NOT uat-baggers! Auburn University will forever be superior! IF you don't get that, then go root for another team. I love Auburn because it's Auburn, not for football. Auburn has given me more than I can ever give Auburn.

I see nothing wrong with the OPs post. He just stating we are 0-2, which we are and that he hopes the news on Lenoard Williams gets better on Wednesday.
I for one feel the exact same way.
He post isn't doom and gloom. He doesn't claim the recruit class is lost. He is simply stating 2 facts and 1 opinion and gets downvoted.......
If you are not a sunshine pumper as the term seems to be flying around, you are a bammer. That makes zero sense, that an AU fan cannot critcize what he think is important. That is what is great about being a fan. No we are not the coaches, no we do not have the full story. That's what is great about a discussion board that some "Threads" are mature and reasonable and some are shot down.
Now if he had come on here and said our recruiting class is failing, and Wednesday not going to be any better, and this doesn't look good, and OMG THE WORLD IS FALLING, then sure that's a little much.
i thought these boards were for news, updates, general information, and personally opionions???
i guess i need to stop subscribing already...
i will contact you "wareagle28mg" the next time i want to post something, to make sure its ok.
IN MY OPINION IT LOOKED AS IF AUBURN PUT "A LOT" OF TIME INTO ARMSTEAD, THATS ALL I AM SAYING.
IN MY OPINION, I THOUGHT WE SHOULD HAVE PUT THAT KIND OF EFFORT INTO A LOCAL KID...NOT 2,500 MILES AWAY...I KNOW WE DO "BIG BOY" RECRUITING NOW AND THAT COMES WITH THE TERRITORY, BUT I HAD DOUBTS ABOUT ARMSTEAD ALL ALONG.
oh well, i guess i cant put things like this on a board anymore...
Although i did not agree with your opinion, I gave you an up vote because you did not deserve the down votes. I got down votes for responding to you and I am not sure what I said to deserve them either, go figure. I just responded on the reality of commits to scholarships offered. I do think that the coaches have put in all the time they can with the local kids and they can't spend anymore money on them or that no money was wasted going after these other recruits. Keep posting, War Damn Eagle
we went 0-2 last night, i hope it gets better, is a honest statement...i dont lose sleep over recruiting but i like to see Auburn succeed in every phase. this has nothing to do with bills, the world ending, my families health or my car...
that was supposed to be motivation for us to finish strong!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WAR EAGLE!
Sack up, Sally.
Lets see, we missed on Kozan and Armstead. Well, it would have been nice to get those two, but they will miss the opportunity to play for AU and experience one of the best football atmospheres anywhere and playing in the best conference anywhere.
I know we didn't get the two targets yesterday, but it's their loss, not Auburn's. So I say Kozan and Armstead are already 0-1 before they ever get to a college campus.

actually, we're 15-0 as of yesterday. If they don't commit to us, they don't count [bvg]
