It is shocking to me that after a full year of making predictions about AU leading for recruits that everyone knew were not going to the Barn, the Barn site mods seem to have avoided all blame for the missed predictions. Most aubs place the blame on the character of the kids for not choosing AU.
I know that the barner sites are used mainly as trooper Taylor's propaganda machine, but I thought some of the folks would call their mods on their crazy predictions when they whiffed on so many folks they supposedly "led" for.
I know one thing, if our mods batted the same percentage as theirs we would all be up in arms. At some point the auburn writers are detracting from the reputation of the 247 network of sites as a whole.
They actually did rebel on signing day, but were bailed out by these kids that trolled them by signing late, which convinced them that auburn had a last-second flea-flicker up its overalls. The rage has now dissipated while they pretend to believe they made a couple of Saban-level coordinator hires.
It's mostly Jeffrey Lee and Hokansen from the other site that go with outlandish predictions. Bryan Matthews is a bit of a sunshine pumper when it comes to Auburn, but he also is realistic most of the time and does his job in a professional way. I think he does a good job covering their recruiting. I wouldn't say the same about the first two names I mentioned. Those two act like juveniles.
Some people bring a knife to a gun fight. Mark Richt brings a Super Soaker 2000.
