B. It's not fair to give him a lower or higher grade at this point.
Instant improvement on offense over last year. This will be an offensive-based squad as long as Gus is coach, and we know that. Gus and Lashlee are smart and know how to move the ball downfield, though some times they feel the need to stick to gimmicks like the double reverse that won't work against fast defenses. Other than that we can expect continued improvement.
Defense has been meh, but this was to be expected at first. We are weak at LB. Secondary is MUCH improved over last year which seems to get ignored a lot - Melvin has coached these guys well and their latent talent is coming out, but overall D needs a lot of work.
I'm a fairly young fan, and the more I get around older fans I've realized that some old school AU people hate Auburn worse than Bama fans - they just wear different colors. You guys need to stop wailing about flaws that you knew were still going to be there after Chizik left. Start supporting your team instead of griping about things you know deep down are improving. You can't expect Gus to clean everything up after one or even two years.
We've already seen more improvement than I thought possible. The SEC West is likely the hardest division to make a turnaround in, but IMO we are ahead of Tennessee, Arkansas, and Kentucky in that regard. Gus has some weird moments but he's brilliant and I do trust him to make our offense work.
WDE. Some of you melancholy old farts need to learn when to shut up.
"you're so vain, I'll bet you think this post is about you, don't you? Don't you?"
" I do understand the Auburn spirit is real and that it is alive and well."
