The difference is Nick Marshall never played with hesitancy. He went for it, good, bad, whatever.

RobbEEEEEEE! (TM The War Rapport) plays like he's scared to see his shadow stepped on by the defense.

Can you teach balls? Because that's what he needs more than anything.

I'm not a Robbie fan, so far.  He may convince me at some point, but right now, he's just fast.

In his defense, though, he was thrown into a horrible situation, running scared behind a makeshift band of misfits for an O-line. When Caddy took over, and went back to a more traditional, smash mouth type style, RA looked a lot more comfortable, and decisive, rushing for over 100 twice in the last 4 games.

It may all be a moo point, though.  I love steak.  U Free said he wanted to sling it around Saturday.  Obviously, the weather nixed that idea.  Probably just to see how the passing game has progressed.  But, I don't think we'll ever see a 2013 type RPO again.  Not to that extent.

Did anyone hear U make a couple of in game comments about Tee Jay.  He took off one time, and Free said, "That's not his game".  Another time Finley ran it, you could tell U was not happy from the standpoint of saying, "He didn't need to leave the pocket.  There was no need to take off."

My doctor told me I needed to stop masturbating.  I asked him why, and he said, "because I'm trying to examine you."

You spelled Ashford’s first name wrong.

This is the kind of bullshit I’m referring to.

I don’t think it’s a “balls” thing. RA is fast, but he is nowhere near as quick as NM. If NM saw a DE hesitate at all, he took off. He did that because he knew very few players could outquick him. RA will get caught, a lot, in the option keep.

Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

NM also had the option to hand it off up the middle to a back that could either run a water buffalo over or catch a squirrel and the DEs knew that, so all he needed was that twitch.

NM was also a magician selling the fake at the mesh point with Tre Mason.  It wasn't as smooth with CAP the following season.

In '13, no camera man, defense, or viewer could keep up with who had the damn ball until we were 15 yards down field a lot of the time.

I was in Kyrgyzstan (in-transit back from a 7 monther in Afghani-land) for the Washington State game, watching us go back and forth against a pretty wide open Mike Leach (RIP) offense.  Based off that game, I knew it was going to be a fun season to watch.  Even so, it still exceeded any expectations we could have had coming off that 3-9 season.  I don't think we will catch lightning in a bottle like that again, but am as excited as I have ever been to watch Auburn football with the momentum they've built in 1 off-season with Caddy as the catalyst.

Is "water buffalo" code for AJ McCarron's mom?  Pretty sure TM put a hurtin' on that.

I poke fun at Snag’s and I’m sure that I take it too far, sometimes. And for that, I apologize. I don’t mean it to be mean spirited.

To your question, we joke about that a lot. I know that in actuality Snag’s knows a lot about balls, resting on his chin.

Yeah option QBs are often in the clenches and take hard contact. That's not for Ashford. Still hoping for a capable #2 out of the portal.

Just a little comparison/contrast.  I don't know why, other than I was curious, and bi.

Malik Willis had 141 rushing attempts in 10 games in 2020 Liberty.  His second year, he rushed it 197 times in 13 games.

Nick Marshall ran it 172 times in 2013, and 153 times in 2014.

I put Marshall out there to kind of give an idea of how much we may see our QB running.  If Liberty had played the full 13 games in the Covid year, Willis would project to run it 183 times.  I think it's safe to say that if U Free has an athletic QB, he's going to be toting the rock quite a bit.

A read-up on Ashford from John Garcia.

"EVALUATED 11/02/2018
JohnGarciaJr
John Garcia Jr.
PROJECTION
4-7 Round
DAY 3
COMPARISON
Joey Gatewood
UCF KNIGHTS
Long, muscular athlete with room to grow. Powerful arm with smooth three-quarter delivery. Strength to all three levels as well as outside the numbers. Ability to play off platform effectively with multiple arm angles. Comfortable throwing in traffic or on the run. Effective runner with good instincts and verified long speed. Above average improvisational skill. Flashes touch down the field with accuracy. Can work RPO game effectively with quick trigger. Decisive as passer and runner. Intelligent prospect with grit. Competitor. Relies on plus athleticism at times and bails on structured pocket on occasion. Trusts arm in tight spots, creating high risk-high reward scenarios. One-year varsity starter (2018) with good production in highest classification in Alabama. Potential pro baseball prospect with plans to play both sports in college. Should build into true dual-threat as Power Five starter over time with solid pro potential should his focus eventually fully shift to football. Should develop into a middle-to-late round NFL draft choice.

Athletic Background
Robby Ashford is a Quarterback from Hoover, AL."
