A recruit so big, they’re letting him change the name of the school.

Either that, or it was too much trouble for him to figure out.

    Like they always say, you can’t spell bAckUp school with AU

    Stephon Marbury is not amused by Nick Marshall’s attempts to rip him off.

    I hope he has straightened up his life and always has his worst games against GA.

    Looks they Auburn & Malzahn is trying to catch lightning in bottle again.


  5. Great get for AU. Perfect type of QB for their system. Limitless raw athletic ability and Gus knows how to manage a moron like Cam. He can surely manage Nick.

    I’m impressed with what Gus is doing. Lot of work left to do though. A ton.


    • I’m curious why Texas lost interest in NM. It sounds like he was interested in the ‘Horns.


      • NRBQ

        Maybe he tried to steal Bevo’s I-phone.

        Mack has a disdain for potential Heisman winning QB’s now (see Manziel, RBG III).

        I thought Texas offered him as a DB. At 6’2/190 he fits with where UGa wanted to use him. That was why he took Georgia over the Gnats? Said Marshall: “I like playing quarterback but I love playing DB. Sometimes I think I’d rather get an interception than throw a TD pass.” At any rate he is not a 6’5″/245 Scam or 6’3″/235 Timmy. Maybe he is spending too much time with all his qb clippings? Same kind that Les was reading when he picked up Met perhaps? Cam was a player not unlike #34 that could carry a team. Too bad he wasn’t more like him character wise. It’s called parenting I think. But I’m a Dad and I am biased.


      • What style of O are they running down there in Austin? Cause the Nick I remember from high school highlight reels seems perfect for Malzahn’s spread.

          Not sure now, since Harsin left. But over the past few years I’d call it making it up as they go along. 😉

            Major Applewhite is now in charge (no pun intended!). As a former UT QB with some past heroics, he supposedly favors a balanced pro style attack. Word is he carries a granny smith apple colored notebook and likes the sequence of throwing deep on first, dive play with a small back on second down, and the draw play on third and long. Very good at QB development and recruiting.

    The Auburn qb position is in a bit of a shambles. Malzahn had tremendous success in reining in and coaching up a stallion of a qb in Scam Newton. At 6’5″/245 Newton was a qb in a TE body and like Teebow he could move the chains. Both have moved to the NFL but the difference being Timmy can’t throw and Newton can. It ain’t called the NFL for nothing and if you are a qb that can’t play pitch and catch you might find yourself drifting from team to team. Signed as an athlete at Georgia, Nick at 6’2″/190 was pursued by the Gnats to play qb but was expected to play DB for Georgia. Other than the off the field issues at Georgia I see little resemblance between Marshall and Newton regardless of Malzahn. What I do see is an athlete with a bit of experience playing qb for Gus while he organizes and readies their commitment of 4-star duel-threat Newtonesque quarterback Jeremy Johnson (6’6″/215) to be the elite quarterback for the Tigers in the future.

    Doing some due diligence here I am hearing Auburn has to do paperwork, go through admissions, before Nick Marshall is cleared to sign there. That shouldn’t be too much of a hurdle. Nick can be brood mare for Malzahn’s next stallion.


  7. Go Dawgs!

    You’ve still got enough characters left to add the “k” at the end of that “bac”, Nick. Or did a buddy steal that, too? Have fun at the University of Auburn.

    when you knock the grammer,don`t forget he had no problem getting in and staying in Athens….i`m a dog fan but there are such things as glass houses…..

    I heard a long time ago that AU had to change Bo Jackson’s first name because he couldn’t spell his full name. It was Bob. I also heard that before Pat Dye would give a player a letter, the player had to tell him which one it was. A write-up on one of the star recruits last year stated, “Doesn’t know the meaning of the word fear; doesn’t know the meaning of a lot of other words either.” I could go on and on, but I will spare you now that I have made all three remaining AU fans mad at me.

    My only concern is that the twitterz limited his grammar and what he meant to tweet was, “I am taking my talents, BAC, the SEC…”

    I keep waiting for one of these talented kids who loose the opportunity to play at Georgia to bite us in the butt, big time. I hope it is not Nick Marshall.

    I watched a good bit of Nick Marshall in high school….looked like D.J., Charlie Ward, etc, to me, but hey….

    It is unfortunate Marshall wound up at the SEC version of a banana republic.
