Re: Anyone Watch Last Night?
 fantastic job of developing the guy. 
Can you explain what this means? In Auburn it means you come in with a lot of hype/talent but it gets/got coached out of you. 
A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America ' for an amount of 'up to and including my life.' That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.'

Re: Anyone Watch Last Night?
In Athens he had huge OL. Everywhere else he was pedestrian.( as were the OL)
Give Gus those same huge OL and his offense would look pretty good too.
If we cannot recruit the fat boys, no offense will be successful here.

Aub and Uga were on comparable talent fields most of THOSE years. Look it up. And recruiting is part of his job. Do we not think were gonna improve over the talent had on the field the last 2 years in the trenches? We have nowhere to go but up in that area. 

And...everywhere else? The one other year he was an OC at a shoot school in Columbia? Otherwise he was the head guy at CSU. OC is his calling. And even at a shoot school like SC (that beat Aub in 20 mind you) they produced - very quietly - the leagues leading rusher. 

Im not saying Bobo is all world or licking his boots, but he's an obvious improvement over what was walked out the door....especially in the QB dept. Its not even a close contest. But youd think half our fanbase wants to trade him back in for Gus. Amnesia is hitting many hard with the Gustard Offense and trench play.

The fact remains that without huge OL he has not proven to be creative enough to overcome that shortage. Will he be able to get those huge OL? I sure hope so. But just about any decent offense can be successful with the best OL. Maybe Harsin implements his offense and let’s Bobo learn it and coach the QBs. Who knows. But he definitely was not my first choice.

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 know that Boise's offensive linemen tipped the scales at over 300. Bobo is an I formation guy but the following seems to indicate that Harsin knows what he wants out of his offense. 
Just needs some Jimmy's and Joe's to make it work on this level.

Re: Anyone Watch Last Night?
Our O-line did one thing fairly well this season, which was run blocking.  When they had the opportunity to go straight ahead, they weren't half bad.  Pass blocking....not so much.  Our tackles are slow as Mud Kat Bryant.  But the notion that Bobo won't have a "huge offensive line" to work with is just not true.  Brahms is a 300 pounder.  You don't need your center to be 6'7" 350.  The rest average right at 330 pounds with Alec Jackson at 6'5" 315 being the smallest.  These guys are plenty big.  As a matter of fact, they far outweigh Clemson's O-line, which may be why tOSU beat that ass.

Again, the biggest problem Bobo is going to have with the O-line is finding guys who can actually step out there quick enough to engage a defensive end.  Without that, we're going to see more of Bo Pix sprinting to the sidelines. 

Boy, giraffes are selfish.  Just running around, looking out for #1....getting hit by lightning.....

That is the general gist when one says huge OL.
Bobo's line has to be bigger and better for HIS offense to work. UGA had huge OL (talented goes without saying) while Bobo was there.
But in the same tone, if you had the same OL at AU under Gus' offense, you would be successful also. Gus was successful without the best OL at times. I'm not sure you can say the same about Bobo.

The bottom line is, we better recruit bigger/better OL if we even want to stay on the field with the big boys. If not, we are UT.

no doubt the 2021 season will be challenging. It won't happen overnight, but looking at Harsin and Bobo's past recruits....Friend too - they all produce big OL. In the long run, I see that being no different here.

The key is going to be recruiting and our fat, slobby strength and conditioning coach getting them in the weight room.  But I'm not sure his fat ass will be able to get out of McDonald's long enough to do that.  #my600poundlife

It would behoove Harrison to peruse the AU message boards. Obviously, you guys have tons of football knowledge, I just don’t know if there is an effective way to impart it.

He had better learn quick to listen to you guys or bam! Look how quickly you were able to get rid of Gus.

I know, right? I mean, bringing all these Boise coaches here, especially the obese S&C Coach, and not retaining Kevin Steele.  Harger obviously doesn't know what the hell he's doing.  #jennycraig

Hellenberger is coming for you and he's bringing Honey Boo Boo with him
Now I may be an idiot, but there is one thing I am not, sir, and that, sir, is an idiot.

Helgendorf can bring any fat fudge from Idaho he pleases. The kids ain't supposed to as he does... I mean...
...you know what I mean.

And Steele can pull a coup somewhere else if he pleases, just not at the Loveliest Village near I-85 or thereabouts.

Re: Anyone Watch Last Night?
It is very low class the way that you people talk about fat people.

It makes me hurt. For them, I mean.

How’s he gonna teach our guys to lift when he can’t even lift the damn bar over his own bloated gut.  Jeez, Harvinz is a failure already.

Took a look at Pitman. Has a build like an in-law of mine. Dude can lift a Buick out of a ditch.

Yeah but our S&C coach looks like Fred Flintstone.  He ain’t no lifter.

In-law hasn't lifted since high school. 
Okay it wasn't a Buick. It was a Toyota Corolla liftback and it was three years ago. His sons are big boys and were struggling with the car tire spinning in about an 18 inch rut. He told them to get out of the way, put his rear to the bumper, flexed his knees and tossed the car onto the rub of the road. 
It was incredible. He was 62!
