College and Magnolia blog, Auburn’s SBNation, does some simple Q&A

Things are going well for Lane Kevin here Ole Miss Where the rebels were not defeated and ranked tenth in tenth place. The same cannot be said for Brian Harsin at Auburn, with many saying it will likely be his last game at the helm.

Our friends in college and magnolia They were kind enough to answer some of our serious and not so serious questions as the Rebs face the Tigers tomorrow at 11am at Vaught Hemingway.

1. Rank the following candidates to be the next coach for Auburn: Urban Mayer, Matt Roll, Hugh Fries and give a lead candidate.

Oh man, if you’re going to make me rank these three, then I have to say…

1. Wild Card filter (field mainly): Jeff Grimes, OC at Baylor. Former OL coach at Auburn, enlisted 2013 and 2019 CAF offensive line LSU Offensive line, he was very powerful with his attack in BYU And now Baylor, he knows what he’s dealing with in Auburn.

2. Matt Rowley, does not have huge personal baggage.

3. Hugh Freeze, just because I think some of our money-owners are stupid enough to want him, and he makes his own bar.

4. Urban Meyer would be too expensive, PR would be terrible and we wouldn’t help ourselves in this area leading up to the appointment anyway.

2. Auburn wins if…..

Auburn wins if Olly coughs touches the ball 5 times alone 30. Our attack has scored one goal in the second half since then like last year when we played a P5 opponent, and it got noticeably worse as the game went on. Our defense will get tired of putting up with the whole team, and we will have minimal transformations for ourselves. In fact, make that Ole Miss fumble 7 times on their side of the field to make up for our shifts.

3. What is the general feeling around the Auburn fan base about how things are going this season?

bad. I’m sure you can find some fans like “awwwww, give Harsin the time he needs” but they are most likely Boomers who got their pension working at the tool factory in 1968 and never held a different job. Harsin never liked himself to the people of Auburn, but his height may have surpassed Ole Miss last year, because Auburn was still in control of her destiny at the time. People don’t really trust the powers that be making the right decision because everything has gone wrong from potentially firing Harsin in February, to waiting until kickoff week to get rid of Allen Green. The staff isn’t recruiting at the moment because they know they’re going to be fired very soon, and we’re all waiting for a moment on Sunday morning from Pete Thamel who says it’s finally done.

Thank Heaven for recruiting Bruce Pearl and Gymnastics.

4. Where was Auburn Jesus this season when he needed him now more than ever?

Jesus’ auburn works in mysterious ways. It gives us clear signs to expel this man, and like so many people in the Bible, our people do not heed those signs. We’ve seen several pressing times for AJ though. Pretty much everyone views this year as a gamble because of Potato Pals, and hopefully we’ll keep our good Auburn Jesus mojo for March.

5. Assuming T.J. Finlay doesn’t return, tell us more about Ashford and what to expect when he’s under position.

He’s very physically gifted, but doesn’t have some of the key ingredients to be a top-tier SEC midfielder yet. He rushes everything and his accuracy is questionable (he was 13-38 against Georgia). He inherited the best Bo Nix traits in the rescue even before the protection collapsed because he is very fickle after playing behind our streak. However, he can run the ball very well, and he has a surprisingly deep ball. We don’t put him in any sort of position to succeed with the offensive planner, and that’s a failure for the head coach, offensive coordinator and everyone around him.

6. What is the most encouraging unity in the team and where does the biggest conflict occur?

Our most encouraging unit is our defensive line. Derek Hall, Colby Wooden, Jason Jones, Marcus Harris, Marcus Bragg, Echo Liotta (when he was healthy)… these guys deserve to attack the other side by not making them play from behind and for too long. Hall and Wooden are probably early draft picks, and they’ve been pretty good for a few years now. We knew they would be a strong unit next year.

The biggest struggle is against them. Our offensive line is very bad. I don’t know if you watched some clips from the Georgia game, but she wasn’t defeated or outdone by talent. Our bushing workers weren’t dealing with UGA defenders. They were falling, letting the free rush in, it was bad. Offensive streak play is the main reason we’re so bad, and while it was about Gus and his lack of recruitment from 2017-2020, Harsin had plenty of time and opportunity with the transfer gate to fix it and he did and nothing. Tank Bigsby and Jarques Hunter must be one of the best back-to-back duos in the league, but they can’t do anything there. For example, Tank had 62 rushing yards after touchdown with Missouri, and a total of 44 rushing yards. What the hell is this, man.

7. Are the tigers having some craziness with the iron bowl in them this year?

No, and frankly I don’t want us to do that unless we keep firing Harsin. The best case scenario is that we can get this guy after Lane Burger puts down 50, then temporary trainer and lovable alum Zac Etheridge leads us to the turn of the century in Tuscaloosa. It won’t, although we will likely lose to WKU.

8. Is there anything Harsin could do to save his job after this season?

If possible, he has to beat the Ole Miss first, then win, including a win over Bama in Tuscaloosa. I don’t think he will get the chance, however, winning or losing this weekend, he will be fired. We have farewell week on the 22nd, and this is the perfect time to get it out and let things temporary.
