Strive for perfection in everything we do. Take the best that exists and make it better. When it does not exist, create it.
I haven't posted much on this board, but I will do better.
Folks, please don't insult PM, BM, or Ron on this board by questioning their motives. They have shown themselves to be very accurate compared to some of the other so-called "experts" on the web. They also give us what we want: good factual info, quality commentary, and rumors which have a reasonable chance at becoming reality. I have yet to see any irresponsible journalism on the part of any of the AUC writers. I am pretty confident that I won't see any of this in the future.
We all have expected Gus to move on as a head coach somewhere. I have read that Coach Thigpen might go with him right? From what I've seen from our defense since CGC arrived, none have been a defense that he as a Defensive Coordinator would be happy with. He is a man driven to be the best at his craft and so far, our defense is light years behind the defenses he had here at Auburn under Tubs. I know playing as poorly as we have on defense must be gut wrenching for him to watch. With that being said, this looks like a year of staff changes so to be honest, I wouldn't mind seeing more staff changes on the defensive side of the ball. Starting at the top. It would sure be nice if our defense could create a lot more 3 and outs so our offense would have more opportunites to put more points on the board. I know we've all heard it said before "defense wins championships." IMO even mediocre defenses win championships if Cam Newton is the QB. I have faith CGC will get the job done some way somehow! WDE! BTW, this is my first post and I hope it brings something meaningful to the conversation with out offense to anyone.
To be honest, this is all still speculation. There may be some validity to certain rumors. But I'll believe that CGM and Thigpen are leaving when it's announced. We heard the same rumors last year about Gus interviewing for several jobs when he was really offered only one. JMO
