As I read this post, I'm reminded of the saying, "black hole stupid."
I have noticed how our linemen on both sides of the ball are manhandled every week. That is the result of a failed strength program, plain and simple. We are not as strong as our competition!! How can that be?? Fire Yox with the rest of them!!
Totally on the coaches - mainly Chizik. One moment this year stood out to me as beacon of ineptitude. You remember the UL Monroe game, it was 4th and short, they are in punt formation, at the snap, our entire line runs back to block for the return. The fake punt was perfect - my 78 yr old mother could have shuffled on her walker for a first down. This happens after Monroe does something like going for it on 4th down 8 times or more the previous weeks??? My son and I were yelling, "watch the fake"! To me, it is unbelievable that our coaches could not be more in tune with an opponents tendencies and prepare accordingly. That's the moment I really began to get concerned that the wheels were coming off.
Also, can't wait for Phillip's post-mortem story - should be a fantastic read!

The word that I heard from the Strength and Conditioning department is that our "4 stars, 5 stars, and superstars" are being coddled and that Trooper and Looper "keep Yox away from them". This from an employee. I did not see/have access to this directly so it's just gossip.
It does seem as though the line blocks a little harder and the receivers work to get open a little better with Wallace in there. This reminds me of when Cody was supposed to be THE one and we had internal team discord for a while. Cody Burns -like players are the kind we need more of. They want to win for AU and not pout and whine and not play hard when they don't start or play enough to suit them.They just want to win.
As for those of you that hate the "Creed Crowd": If you went to Auburn and graduated, shame on you. If you did not graduate and still give money beyond the price of a ticket we who did graduate and give what we can are glad to have you as our fans and contemporaries, but please read the creed or listen at pre-game. Every time I read or hear the Creed I still get goosebumps. There are just certain things in which Auburn men and women believe.
If you hate the Creed and what it stands for please go to Walmart and officially join the updykes. You are obviously one in spirit.
Finally someone has figured out what has happened at QB KF was a great high school QB where you can get away with pure atleticism. I like KF and think he is a good athlete, but he may never be an SEC QB. I think Gus miscalculated (along with a lot of other coaches who wanted KF) when he recruited him and that may be why he left. CSL may have found a diamond in the rough in JW and has made him a lot better since the week before our first game when I saw him in a scrimmage. The jury is still out on JW, but from what I have seen so far he is our best option at QB. We will know a lot more after the GA game.
