"Hey my friends are the ones that wanted to eat at that shootty hole in the wall that only served bread and wine.  What kind of brick and mud business model is that.  Stick to the cart if that's all you're going to serve.  Then that dude came in with like 12 other people, and some of them weren't even wearing shoes, and the restaurant sat them right across from us. It was gross, and they were all stinky and dirty.  Then dude starts talking about eating his body and drinking his blood...I almost lost it.  That's the last supper I'll ever have there, and I hope he dies a horrible death."

That would be an interesting turn of events. I wonder if CWM is down there right now?

There can be contact now, right?
Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

I hope Boom is calling him and helping him.
Boom, T-Rob, Thompson, Cowart & Holland...helping him.

Re: Official NSD Thread 2015
Some national notes...

http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/sports/wp/2015/02/04/national-signing-day-a-bonanza-from-california-to-alabama/He added, in language most promising to the Auburn faithful,


per Gus...
“We can rush the passer with just four guys and not have to blitz.”

^^Assuming we can stop the run and tackle better in open field I would say not having to bring the heat artificially should helo us right away. But this also assumes Lawson returns to previous form and we get better production from the other side. Adams should hold his own inside but depth could be a problem.

Re: Official NSD Thread 2015
Don't like that statement from Gus.  I hope Coach Boom tempers those expectations a bit.  Losing Lawson last season was a blow but come on, he wasn't exactly Kevin Green over there.  I think he had 2 1/2 sacks.  Montraviosity@aliciousness Adams completely disappeared and no one ever knew if Daniels was even on the field.  Getting Cowart was huge...for the future.  He may come in and light it up.  Sure hope so.  But I don't expect him to be much better than Lawson was his freshman year.

Not being negative.  Just realistic.  We were horrible and soft in every way last season.  I just want CBM to come in and make these mofo's up front mean and ready to take whoever is in front of them and whip dat a$$.     
You guys ever thought about the fact that the guy who coined the term, "coined the term", coined the term?

Thought the same about that statement. Our front looked mostly disorganized, nothing like a unit from all I could tell, sort of everybody do your own thing. This resulted in large running lanes against anybody that likes to run.

I think a healthy Adams finds himself at end on the next level, maybe after the coming season.

We really need/needed some inside help to develop and missed badly.

I agree, however just to point out one thing.  Adams wasn't playing his position 90% of the time. They were trying to get pressure. Hopefully him back at DT will help.

Re: Official NSD Thread 2015
I think Gus is saying that we can but not saying that we have. Maybe he means we "should be able to" get more pass rush and I agree. It was almost non-existent last season and didn't look much better with blitzes.

Bottom line is that we have to improve in all facets on D but especially pass rush. That was the most glaring to me.

I don't know Lawson's freshman numbers but I thought he had a big impact. If Cowart gets close, I think we will be much improved with pass rush. And I trust that our more experience, depth and going to a 4-3 will benefit our run stopping.

Pass coverage, I don't know. I feel like a lot of our break downs last year were due to a deficient rush. Will and I will work tirelessly to get us to where we need to be. That's all I can promise.

Re: Official NSD Thread 2015
Quote from Kerryon Luggage Johnson from a piece on the recruiting process.  Asked about hearing it from rabid fans.

"I've seen some other recruits and they get it hard," he said. "But I handled my recruitment well. I never said 'I'm leaning here, or I'm leaning here' and switched back and forth. It's scary that there's grown men who say these things. You're like, 'You're 40 years old, go have a job or something.' I haven't got a lot of it. You can only pray for those guys, and thank the ones who aren't like that."

Yeah, he wasn't talking about you with this. Since he said 40.
