The fanbase will always be the weak link in Auburn football. We yell "FAMILY" and "ALL IN" when it is convenient or when we think it will get us recruits, but when a little adversity gets in our way we go into complete meltdown mode.
How many times do we witness the meltdowns, the endless posts of doom, go outside to check the falling status of the sky before we realize it's just the same ol crap--just another pot stirrer, just another obstacle in our way.
DO YOU TRULY BELIEVE THIS PROGRAM IS NOT ON THE WAY UP???
Unless our fans get in the way, I 100% believe our team will be 10x better at the end of this season as we were at the end of last season.
CGC has delivered on everyone of his promises. He has brought back the family atmosphere, tripled the number of quality recruits we get, brought great facility additions to camps and DELIVERED A NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP all while our biggest rival has enjoyed some of the best success in all of it's history.
It was NEVER going to be an easy process. Don't be blind. Take the time you're using to gnash your teeth to research yourself. Change takes time. The foundation is laid and the walls are up, the roof is half complete.
Is there work to be done? OFCOURSE. Always is and always will be. The off the field issues will get corrected and the growing pains we are seeing now WILL pay dividends in the near future.
CGC would tell the fans to "stay the course".
Suck it up you bunch of pansies. It's the start of the 4th quarter in this journey and that haymaker we landed just before the half still has us in this game and looks amazing in the trophy case. Fight to the finish. Buckle your jockstrap and if you aren't prepared to sacrifice the days of heartache and disappointment on the road to another Crystal ball go buy you some houndstooth you fairweather poser.
WAR DAMN EAGLE!!!!!!!
Love it. WDE!
At the end of last year we had 8 wins. As it is we are probably going to have half that maybe 5 wins with a few lucky bounces. I do believe we are headed the wrong direction but I hope this loss spurs the coaches into making some drastic changes. If we are going to lose like this we may as well allow some young guys to take lumps and get up to speed.
When Clemson goes 12-0 or 11-1 and MSU goes 10-2 and both are ranked in the top 15, will you feel better?
When the defense cleans up some of the mistakes and is 100% invested in the mentality it takes to run a BVG system and is vastly improved come November, will you return to this thread???
When KF shakes his jitters from his first two starts and is throwing strikes to the many playmakers CGC has been responsible for recruiting to AU, while the Oline continues to age like a fine wine will you suck it up and stop whining like a 2 year old with a wet diaper???
>>>>BEstiNsTATE: I fully agree with the allowing young guys to take lumps. I think we should have done that with Frazier, Westerman, Robinson last year. This year we should do it with Holsey, Kozan, and Jones. You're 100% wrong about going in the wrong direction though.
MSU is not going 10-2. That QB wasn't nearly good enough. He stared down wrs and still completed many of those passes. He should have been sacked several more times but we didn't tackle well.
Clemson just gave up 27 to a cupcake. La Monroe beat Ark any they're coming for us at this point. We looked worse in week 2 than week 1. There is supposed to be a lot of improvemnent not regression. Maybe it can be turned around but that will depend on if the coaches let the talent on the field and if CSL can get a gameplan prepared that includes better playcalling. It's been absolutely terrible to this point.
Who will beat MSU besides bama and lsu?? Arky has the best shot, but I still don't think they will be anything like a top 20 team. UT or TAMU has the next best chance but that's a push at best right now. Plus all 3 I just mentioned are in Starkville. 10-2 is a real possibility for MSU right now, and their QB will only improve over the next few weeks before they hit the meat of their schedule.
CGC never brought family to Auburn. CGC bought into Auburn not the other way around.
No! Auburn is not on the way up! They are only climbing higher to make the fall all the more spectacular. Great recruiting and bad coaching never hang around each other very long. I just hope the bad coaching exits first.
No way we will be 10 times better. I'll take just as good at this point and be 100% happy.
I will tell CGC to shove it if he told me to stay this course. He is being paid $3.5 million. He needs to fix it now or be gone. The way I see it, it would be cheaper and a whole lot less painful to pay his 7.5 million buyout than to pay him 7million over the next two seasons to avoid it.
When CGC's team stops playing like pansies, then I'll suck it up. I don't need any more time to know that CGC is not the right coach for Auburn. Our players deserve better leadership to ever get to another Crystal Ball. Nice guy. Bad coach. I just hope we can find a way to keep some of the better assistants.
I had not realized there are so many auburn fans with a grasshopper mentality until this past year. Its very disappointing and exhausting trying to fight against it.
This is what it looks like when a man makes heaven
come out of his six string
not as exhausting as putting this much time and money into something i love, that is absolute garbage.
I agree absolutely with the original post. All we do is react to talk radio, the bammer media, and out inferiority complex. Guys, the hell with the grumps worry about Auburn. We have depth but aren't there yet in key positions such as QB and LB. if we can't compete by the time LSU and the pigs come around I will be surprised. I said compete not win, though I think we will have pork this year. Anyone who wants Bobby P as coach needs to rethink. Chiz has class and I expect, no demand class at Auburn.
While I am on my soapbox I believe ESPN and CBS want, think they need, the elites to be on top every year. We are not anointed nor will we be so it is an uphill battle. If the aforementioned media mavens get their way college football will wither and die. The political correct crowd will see to that and if only a few programs are allowed to succeed there will not be a broad base of fans to fight the political correct crowd and sustain the sport....get ready to love soccer.
Dude every other fan base that support winning programs have high expectations and Do exactly what we do. Its when people like you settle for whatever. programs end up like old miss. U can accept it if u like but i am a competitor and i refuse to accept loses. He has had more than enough time. I can see if we were making progress but we're not. We are going backwards unacceptable. Period point blank.
