Ok now that I have vented my frustration about yesterdays loss to Arkansas and talking to my brother about our team made me realize a harsh reality about things with this team and here are some realities that I came to realize that I wanted to share and get some input from you ladies and gentleman.And let me just say I hope they let Chizik see his process thru that's not my decision but I would like to see him get a chance to stay and see his transition thru.
1.We are transitioning from a spread to pro style offense and defense in the 1st yr.
2.Most of the atheletes that we have now were recruited for Gus's spread offense speed guys not much size to them.
3.If we look at how our recruiting has changed since we are going back to pro style we have added size and speed just look at receivers and running backs and compare and Lb's.
4.Keihl Frazier has been in a spread system much of his life from childhood up until highschool and college under Gus he is now learning a whole new system in his 1st yr growing pains indeed for him but he is trying his best to correct the mistakes he has been making.
5.That is probably why most of the receivers that we do have that were stars in highschool can't make it on the field T.Reed to name a few they were recruited for Gus's system something they were use to spread offense now they are having a hard time picking up the pro style system and they are struggling.
I am a big Auburn that get's frustrated just like any other fan does.But in reality Chizik made a conscious decision to take Auburn back to the style that made us successful before we went to the spread offense.And with that we are going to have to recruit different players than before like we are currently doing.It' going to be many bumps along the way and I hope they let Chizik see it thru and if they don't well that is fine also I AM ALL IN REGARDLESS!It's not a easy road that we are seeing for ourselves but Chizik chose future instead of now and that will benefit us more in the long run IMO.So yes we get frustrated because we are fans and love the game,but in reality what we are going thru is not so different than any other school that was making a drastic change and if that guy name Cam would have never came along and delivered us our 2nd national championship in 50+yrs we all would probably have more patience than we have now.I love Auburn and I stand behind them 100%.WAR EAGLE.What are you guy's and gals input and this is not a bashing serious thoughts only.
war eagle iam all in no matter what!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
