we have to decide if we want to be a player or not.  If we do then we need to do like A&M and throw money at a big name who can recruit and coach at a high(er) level

The only way BB fires Robb is if BB's job is on the line, which it's not, and won't be as long as Jeff Long is here. This is an AD that went to bat to give John Pelphrey one more year. The board had to force a change due to attendance.

Maybe, but this is the same guy who fired Mike Markuson after 1 game.  I don't think he has any particular loyalty to Smith or any other underperforming assistant.

I'm so sick of hearing about that.

Mike Markuson is a freaking retard. Smith is just in over his head. I can see Smith getting another year though I hope I'm wrong.  I thought Chaney would stay just because we blew out a terrible Texas team.

Yeah I don't get that. Maybe if it got him on the field more but it hasn't.

He grew.  It happens all the friggin' time.  Players bulk up in the weight room and change positions.

That's the least of our problems.

Bret knew Robb's wife while in school. They are close family friends.  This isn't a coach that he's got no prior relationship with.

I'd take that, unfortunately that will be our high water mark under Bert.

Our only score was a 57 yard field goal. Think about how lucky we were to even get that. This is unacceptable for the money he makes and the resources at his disposal.

Someone has to go this week.

So we are a program run by fucking idiots for fucking idiots- razor5396 12/4/2018

He had daddy Alvarez covering his six then, who was probably the one doing the firing. I kind of think there must have been more to the story than Markuson underperforming after a couple of games. Who fires an OLine coach that quickly? That doesn't even happen in the pros.

I also think we as dark sider anti Nutt prone fans like thinking Markuson was as unqualified as we imagined him being.


I wouldn't keep leaning on this logic because after a while what looks like a line of "invited to find a job elsewhere" coaches is really a bunch of dudes smart enough to cut bait.

Let Rhoads call the plays and have Smith slide into an NFL position coach job at season end without any hoopla.

Hardly the least of our problems. 

We need a rush end as bad as anything, and he was supposed to be a stud At the position.  Fattening him up and bending him over to put a knuckle in the dirt isn't a problem?

We have about six DEs that look like Tarzan...

Our defensive tackles were "slimmed down" to get quicker up the gut. Has Johnson made a play since Philon and Flowers left?

How many yards per rush are we giving up?

Where is Randy Shannon now?

Rob Smith should be fired along with his fat ass head coach.

They're bad coaches.

He was 288 before spring practice even started (which would've been the end of his senior year of high school).  The position he's projected at before his senior year of high school wasn't the position he would ultimately play and tons of articles going back to his junior year suggested that.

He's quick for his size, but not quick enough to be a 300 lb DE in the SEC.

Watching other teams in the SEC and watching ours is like watching the difference between college and pro teams. Our defense looks small, slow and doesn't hit anyone.....unless we target a WR.

Auburn, Bama, TAMU...they look like MEN. They hit, they are fast. Watching the Ole Miss-LSU game last night, both of those defenses were fast and big and just laying the wood to people. Sure, Ole Miss could not stop the run, but they are fast and can rush the passer. Do we ever?

I have no idea what Herb is going to add weight to our guys, but is he making them stronger? To me, it doesn't appear so since our OL gets pushed around and our DL does as well. He needs to join Robb on the plane out of town.

Trust me, as you get to know me I just get weirder

57 carries for 543 yards and you lose by 50+?  That's a fireable offense for Robb Smith. Zero excuse for that shit. If you can't make them at least throw it 20-30 times to beat you then you need to gtfo of the news. 

Also: Is Herbert worth a shit? Is he taking marginal bodies and making them better or is he just got us on som kind of crossfit regiment? We look like bitches.

I like Bielema a lot. Think he's a good person to have as the figurehead. The assistants need a transformation. I'm also looking at you, Segrest and Anderson.
I'd start with firing Smith, making Rhoads the D.C.

The iconic 'alien' is to us what we are to apes: small, pale, big headed, and with unfathomable technology. We even abduct them for medical experiments. Mind blown.

See I'm thinking Partridge could be lured back as DC if we paid him more than he's making as HC. Then again I guess living in Florida isn't so bad.

Offensive Line, maybe Anderson gets another year since basically none of these guys are his players. They need a "consultant" to bring Anderson along.

look at who's left lately and that's Jennings and Shannon. Everyone was convinced these two guys weren't as good as advertised but maybe that's not actually the case.

Obviously, It seems we have a lot of pieces on our defensive staff that just aren't working well together.

Offensively we suck and there is no hiding our lack of blocking above an 8th grade level. Every defense we face knows they can bring it right in our face and we won't check out of a bad play or somehow make them pay for that kind of pressure.

Auburn set a couple of milestones:

1.  Auburn's biggest win ever against a ranked team.

2.  Most rushing yards in an SEC game ever, and I think 7th most by an SEC team regardless of opponent.

I am listening to Bert's post game this morning, I am pretty sure Smith is fired.

Smith's been running on the fumes of 2014's end of season.  I hear the media talking about how amazing our D was at the end of that year.  I've always thought our opponents were playing bad ball, and we got the advantage of that.  I think the D was playing pretty good ball, but not near the level that they were getting credit for.  That Mizzou game was more of a measure of where we actually were at the end of 2014.
And it hasn't been consistently good since then.  Sometimes we look pretty good.  More than enough times we've broken down, we've been wildly out of position, or we've just looked clueless.

9 returning starters on defense. And it has been a shit-show almost from the first game. To say we taken a step backwards is a vast understatement.
