    A hard decision. I think Stidham will have 2 or 3 main guys but the one I think will get the most shots will be Nate-Craig Myers.

      Very sorry you’ve had the problem EasyEdwin. I’ve checked with USA TODAY and they said it could be a computer setting issue. I have a vision problem so I keep my computer screen set on ‘zoom in’ setting for larger words. Once or twice I had the same thing you experienced happen on my desk top and I just hit CTRL and the – or + key to zoom in or out till the content page came into view, pushing the ad back to the side. Another thing that might help is refreshing the page. Hope that helps.

        ….I would add that Control-0, (That’s “zero”) will return text size to the default.

        …..My most common use of cntrl-plus is when I look at game box scores. A lot of times, they shrink the font down like crazy, on the defensive statistics. If I’m on my laptop, have to hit cntrl-plus-plus to see who had those quarterback hurries or tklsForLoss.

    I think Stidham will spread it around but Hastings may be his favorite short route guy and Nate Craig-Myers the deep threat.

    Thank you, AUT. All better now.

  5. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..My guess was Hastings, provided he stays healthy. Once Stidham connects on a few deep bombs, teams will have to play back, and either give up the short-intermediate routes, or not play the run as well.

    With Al Borges helping out, I’m looking forward to the role of the H-Back and tight end on dump off routes to catch the defenses short. A couple of sure-handed athletes in those roles will go far towards sustaining drives and driving defensive coordinators crazy.

    …..Ads and ad-blocking is a big debate, these days. I’m kinda old-school, and pretty much always run an ad-blocker. I try to whitelist sites I like, but if they bomb me with obnoxious auto-plays, cover content junk, or worse, load malicious code, they get blocked again.

    …..There is a certain site out there right now, which pops Nick Saban’s picture up and whines about my adblocker. Meanwhile, Adblock counts how many ads it blocked on that page. Nick is trying to get me to let 21 ads load! 21!

    …..It’s funny, too. I read a piece on the last week, that a study had been done, and worldwide, less than 10 percent of desktop or laptop computers had ad-blocking software active. As far as mobile devices, that number is close to zero-percent. The Chrome developers are threatening to add ad-blocking into a future version of that browser, but for now, these whining websites are crying over nothing, I think.

      The thing about ads is it’s a necessary evil. I'd rather not have them at all but realistically a quality site has to have some to be able to stay up. When we went with USA TODAY, we told them we did not want too many ads and nothing that covers content where you have to X or close it off the screen to read content. I hate those kind of pages.

      Along that line the AU official site used to have ads that shrank the content window making reading more difficult. Glad to see they have recently improved that set up a little. Because of seeing pages like that, we went with USAT's minimum of 4-5 ads and the occasional take over our blue border ad. One of those is placed between the fifth and sixth article and the rest are at the top, bottom, or on the sidebar, so as to not cover content.

      We also told them we did not want to have any political ads. TET exist for the alumni and fans of Auburn of all stripes; no matter a person's political, ethnic, or religious persuasion.

    Slayton beat em all out last year and will do the same again. He is an excellent route runner and can really bring the ball in. Excited to see how his body has matured.

    On another front, I’m really hoping all these guys don’t get to play in big games. We need to stop subbing out on offense and get back to tempo. The constant package per play subbing we did under Lashlee was such a momentum killer. We would sub then the defense would take their time and make a sub.

    Lineup with a package and take it down the field. Remember Darvin Adams and Terrell Zachary? They never came off on a drive.

    I see Slayton and Craig-Meyers on the edges with Eli Stove being the lineup that can take us to a title.

    It’s either Slayton or K Davis for me.
