Implosion on the Plains

Bo noes.

Tank goes.

I tells ‘ya, Bryan Harsin is on one helluva run lately.  Makes you wonder whom Auburn boosters might be reaching out to behind his back these days.

    Tank – UGA?
    Bo – FSU?

    Would Bo and Tank be eligible to start in the Jan 31 Orange Bowl?

    For Michigan?

  3. And didn’t they already lose a boatload of players around this time last year? Is this their way of saying they’ve fully committed to being a basketball school?

    Uh, I don’t care for Auburn.
    My son, Rusty, stole my truck and moved to Elberton with his wife, Tammy, and his son, Macho Man, to escape poverty and ignorance.
    At least Billy Joe Shaver sang the theme one last time before they canceled my show.

    Everybody calling for a coaching change at UGA needs to pay close attention to the death spiral our rivals are in after chewing up coaches and spitting them out

      If there is anyone calling for CKS to be fired, they should be forced to move to Knoxville and wear orange pants for the rest of their miserable life.

      I can’t imagine anybody the trolliest of message board guys is calling for that, but it’s worth noting the same argument was made when Richt was fired to hire Smart.

        There was a lot of merit to that argument – look at how close we allegedly were to hiring someone like Mullen or Herman….

          Fear of the unknown is not a good argument against staff changes. If someone isn’t meeting expectations, you don’t retain them just because you may get someone worse. If people were content with the state of the program under Richt, that’s another matter.

            I’d agree if you and I were making personal decisions, but its different when you’re at the mercy of the AD, President, and maybe a few big boosters, all of whom are in a dick-measuring contest while trying to play poker with Jimmy Sexton – that is not generally a recipe for success, as the dumpster fires as far as the eye can see just over the horizon, show….

          A Florida fan once paid good money to go to the Outback Bowl wearing Georgia gear so he could hold up a sign that said “GO DWAGS” and make us all look stupid. Meanwhile, Reddit accounts are free.

    Bo ain’t that great. Tank would be a nice addition to somebody’s team.

      Bo is a somewhat better version of Will Levis…maybe. Their receivers were so awful, it’s hard to get a good read on his development last year. He’d be an upgrade some places. Just not any school that looks to be in conference or national title contention next year.

        Passer rating isn’t everything, but Bo’s #s in college: 125, 124, 130

        He’s always the guy on the verge of that big leap. Which never happens.

        There isn’t a P5 school in the country that would take him as anything other than emergency depth.

    Three things will happen in 2022: 1. Tank will be in Georgia’s backfield. 2 Harsin will be headed somewhere west of the Continental Divide after the Iron Bowl. 3. Auburn will finish last in the West.

    A bruiser like Bigsby wouldn’t be a terrible addition to the backfield in Athens.

    It was rumored that Harsin badly wanted both the UW and Oregon jobs, and it all makes sense now as to why. I actually think he’s a good coach but simply is a horrible fit for the program and region. Culturally, he’s probably still in a state of shock being from Idaho/Northwest and trying to navigate the SEC.

    With almost certainty, year two is when you know you either will have a successful coach on your hands long term…or one who will soon be fired. Given the state of their roster and who they’re losing, things look very bleak for Auburn next year. I simply don’t see them competing, and even getting to six wins might be a tough ask of them.

      He entered a brutal division of a brutal league. TAMU has risen. LSU can only get much better. Ole Miss and Mississippi State will beat you silly if you take the day off. You end every season against Saban. Oh, and you get UGA every year in the east. Good luck.

    • It doesn’t help that Harsin comes across about as likeable as a military drill instructor.

      Their prior behavior limits them to coaches who want the money more than anything else. I’m going to snicker a looooong time if Harsin spends two years there, runs them into the ground, forces them into a $15 million buyout, and walks away from the Plains with $25 mill for 24 months of work.

      The economics of the profession make that a damn smart move for a certain level of P5 coach.

    God, please, please, please let them go to UCF. And please, please, please UCF put up a billboard on the Plains: “Thanks for Gus, Bo, and Tank! Oh, and Gus says thanks for the $21 mill.”

    Harsin’s going to go down in the ledgers as a comedy hire.

    For UGA grads in my 70s era, Auburn is the most evil wastewater processing plant on earth. You will never hear me say anything good about them, but I have to give that football staff credit for having them ready to play Alabama, unlike……….nevermind.
