    Back when freshmen couldn't be on the "varsity", we had a separate "Baby Gators" team of only freshmen. I watched one Friday afternoon when Baby Gators vs Baby Bulldogs played (back n '62-'63). The Gators lost their 4th fumble. As they tried to trot off the field, the coach waved them back on. (you broke it, you fix it). Next play, the bulldog RB got smashed to smithereens by our RB turned LB. A guy named Larry Smith.

      Cam Newton / Auburn 2010 comes to mind. Of course he had geniuses with the likes of Chizick and Gus to lead those teams /s.

      But seriously people need to pump the breaks about AR and their expectations. Two games against bottom of the barrel cup cakes don't mean $hit. All I can say is he is definitely better than EJ against the same competition.

        A silly little physical twit QB Johnny Manziel beat Bama "out of the blue" a few years back. I'll believe in AR more than Manziel.
        Sure Bama should win this, mostly due to our Grantham-guys. But underdogs do upset the high-flyers once in a while ... tho' not with a chronic Grantham injury. But us fans have to hope to avoid prior squelching of our weekend fun.? Enjoyment needn't stop prematurely. Go Gators.

          Anm did have a couple of pro bowlers when they knocked off bama but they damn sure didn't have an "elite " roster. That was sumlins 1st year and Manziel put em on his back.

          Over the years the Gators have played many cupcakes. I've never seen us obliterate cupcakes as AR has -- not like 50% of this AR has. His stuff is way different -- way different. Our Gators are much better with AR at QB ... and none on here know AR's peak ... against any opponent. My pre-worry is that Emory & Grantham will seal the defeat in this game.

            Not a 3 star U team. It was packed with talent including two superstar RBs, and a front seven that rivalled anyone.

              Auburn Recruiting rankings:

              2007: 9
              2008: 21
              2009: 23
              2010: 6

              None of the "super star" running backs were drafted in the NFL. None of the WRs were drafted either. Of the "front seven that rivalled anyone" only two lineman were drafted. Lee Ziemba was in the 7th round, Brandon Mosley in the 4th round. And let us not forget, Cam was a transfer.

                You guys can imagine that Dan Dullen isnt the piece of shyt his resume says he is all you want.

                Good luck just praying we have less than 4 interceptions and option fumbles.

                    This weekend how can you spot a well-matched Bama married couple.? The matching tobacco stains on the passenger side door.

                    I say we just let AR play both ways.

                        Hate to be the one to tell you this but everybody knows you're starting to get worried about the possibility of a Gator upset when you start making "just in case" comments like this. :nervous:

                          You could give Dan Mullinz Tampa Bay's roster and he would still get killed.

                          No argument here. At this point I'm pretty sure everyone on the site agrees that Mullen is a mediocre-to-poor coach, has a dorky personality that is off-putting to recruits, and will never win a championship because he can't get out of his own way due to his unearned arrogance and stubbornness.

                          That said, most of us haven't made our dislike of Mullen the whole entire sum and substance of our persona on this website, to the point that there will be nothing left of us if we turn out to be wrong. Personally, although I see zero chance of it happening, I would be happy if it turned out that I vastly underestimated the guy and was wrong about him.

                          In other words, I'm glad I'm not so obsessed with disdain for Cousin Eddie that I'll feel the need to root for Alabama on Saturday, out of fear that a miraculous Gator upset might prolong his tenure. Sucks for you to be in that boat. :dunno:

                            Can someone please be assigned to keep AR as far away from Saban as possible...before, during, and after the game. That fucher gonna try to recruit AR into transferring from us :lol:

                            All he's gotta say is "see kid, you'd be starting for me" :facepalm:

                              7 targets and 6 receptions for 34 yards. All of them short. You replied to my comment that was a reply to somebody else...wasn't even talking to you or even about Shorter's WR skills so not sure what you are even talking about but Im sure its in a whiney little girl voice...

                              "He couldnt manage to make even one of them miss him"

                                      Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
