  1. Plus we need to start playing Tulane anyway so we can take the series lead against them. They are 17-14 versus us right now all time.

  2. I did all of these things. I'm in good shape. I have a lot of friends who failed on a couple of them. Being mostly in a middle to upper-middle class upbringing, the ones who messed around and had kids out of wedlock or abused drugs or alcohol in HS or college had families with means who could help them. The pregnancy wasn't the end of the world, though it delayed their progress a few years. They eventually wised up on the partying, either growing out of it naturally or having families with the means to provide intervention. In other words, kids who are born into good families that screw up royally have margin for error. They can recover from stupid choices. Hell, they can even prolong the amount of time spent making stupid choices because they are shielded from the most devastating, permanently life-altering consequences many times. Kids unlucky enough to be born poor get no such slack. They don't get the shielding and the opportunity to learn before their life is veering off course. Getting out of the ruts that poor decisions make for people is a Herculean effort by comparison.

  3. You introduced Hillary Clinton into a thread that had absolutely nothing to do with her, or even the Democratic Party itself for that matter. This is not the rubbish smack talk forum. If Hillary Clinton has done something that warrants criminal prosecution, censure, or whatever, then start a thread on the subject. I have no problem with her being held accountable for any wrongdoing, and I suspect you would be hard-pressed to find anyone on this forum that does either. In this forum, "Hillary says hello!" is useless deflection. To your benefit, you admitted the error of "snowflake". I do hope you move forward from that. It damages your credibility to resort to such nonsense, and I hate to see people I have respected do that to themselves.

"If you have one of the best seasons that they've had in 14 years and you want to start talking to me about critical, then you've lost perspective on where this program has been, how it's valued and how it's judged. You just have. Our fan base does not feel that way... Our program is in really, really good shape." Love it.

  7. The newly NCEA #1 ranked Auburn Equestrian team will be hosting the SEC championship tournament March 24-25, only cost gas money. March 7, 2017 AUBURN, Ala. – The Auburn equestrian team moved up to No. 1 in the latest National Collegiate Equestrian Association rankings released Tuesday following a successful weekend on the road last week. “The team is starting to run much more in sync now and riding much more on the level we see in practices,” head coach Greg Williams said. “I'm very proud of the team and coaches and love how we continue to get better weekly. We will be hitting full stride perfectly in the postseason.” Auburn (7-3, 4-2) put together solid performances in Texas this past weekend, opening with a tiebreak win over then-No. 1 Baylor Friday afternoon. The two teams rode to a 9-9 tie and the Tigers came away victorious with a 1495-1481 raw score win. The squad moved on to College Station Saturday, facing then-No. 2 Texas A&M in the regular season finale. Auburn picked up a solid 12-7 victory over the Aggies following solid showings from Equitation on the Flat and Horsemanship. Sophomore Caitlin Boyle earned back-to-back MOP honors in Equitation Over Fences on the weekend, while junior Alexa Rivard picked up her first MOP nod of the season in Reining Friday afternoon. Sophomores Ashton Alexander (Flat) and Lauren Diaz (Horsemanship) were also recognized for their outstanding rides against the Aggies. Auburn will be the No. 2 seed in the upcoming SEC Championships. The two-day tournament will be held at the Auburn University Equestrian Center, March 24-25, and admission is free. Georgia will be the No. 1 seed, while Texas A&M and South Carolina come in at Nos. 3 and 4.

  13. See alot of blame being placed on Harper....we knew what we were getting with him. I gave an analysis of his game when everybody was talking about him when we signed. Mitchell is a different player but even if he does take over he will experience the same transitional bumps. That was my point of the prediction this year. We're upping our talent but we aren't signing the type of talent I think many of you hype up. Are we playing in any type of end of year tournament? When everything is over I'm going to do a thread of my pre season predictions and what happened this season, and explain why things happened. Oh and Alabama is going to be pretty good next year, I hope we're ready

  14. Reminds me of the time I had a car stolen. It ended up in D.C. The police found it when they arrested some Russian prostitutes. The police informed me the car was recovered and gave me the number for a towing company to contact. The towing company informed me that I owed them for a tow, $250.00 plus, I was incurring storage fees at the rate of $150.00 per day. Felt more "robbed" when the car was found than I did when it was stolen.

  15. It's not an uncommon occurence. Towing companies in particular can be extremely predatory. The one time I had a car towed sucked and it cost me a good bit of cash, but it was money I could spare to get it out of the lot quickly. The longer I would have waited, the more it would have cost me. It speaks to how razor thin the margins are. When practically all of your income is spent just to remain employed, housed and feeding your kids Bologna while you live off bread, the slightest misstep, one that you and I could absorb with nothing more than some minor inconvenience, is a tremendous setback. It doesn't have to be getting towed. It could be getting a ticket, losing a job, forgetting to pay a utility bill. Any number of things. Being poor sucks. It's extremely easy to fall into that trap and once you're in it, even more difficult to claw your way back out.

  17. Guys, this is a solid schedule filler. We are already playing Oregon out of conference. We pick up Tulane instead of Jacksonville St or Samford. You have to have a few down weeks to let people heal and get young guys playing time. How can we complain about every schedule decision that is made. I think Tulane is a solid choice for a NON- marquee out of conference game. Some people here just look for reasons to complain ....

  20. I've never had anything explode. I suppose I've been lucky. Sometimes I think ahead and bring some gallon sized ziploc bags just in case, or I save any plastic shopping bags I might acquire on a trip to at least mitigate any damage that might occur. And west of mine. But on our next trip, the hotel will be about an .8/mi walk, so hopefully at least one night the wife will be okay staying in after the little one retires while I seek libations. We'll be spending most of our time in the Quarter and in the Marigny on Frenchman. Apple Barrel, Spotted Cat, Adolfo's... is it April yet?

  21. I lived in Knoxville for almost 10 years. Their football stadium is a rust bucket. In addition, they jam people into benches that are too small for normal human beings. Their seats are only 16 inches wide. This allows them to brag about their huge capacity. Additionally, the upper deck area is at such an angle, you almost feel like you will fall forward when you stand up. I'll take our stadium over theirs every day of the week.

  25. if JJ had lost the job to a "freak athlete" i could agree. He lost if to a less talented and less experienced, younger qb. one that looked fairly good when healthy.

  26. I hear ya. The first question we ask is, "Can I take a toddler in there?" Our 2 yr old won't be going to Avenue Pub in April when we're down there. Hopefully I'll get to sneak out one night, though. And in New Orleans, music- like Loosa said- and food probably come before beer for me. BUT... Barnacle asked for a beer bar. Lucky for all, that's an easy one to answer down there. We're lucky in Atlanta. No shortage of kid friendly places with killer tap lists. Our beer scene really got started in Decatur, which has an almost completely kid friendly downtown that also has some of our best beer bars. And 2 more of the city's better beer bars are kid friendly and a mile from my house. It's truly amazing that I'm not morbidly obese. When I travel for work, though, I'm always seeking out a good beer bar or brewery so that I can try stuff that I can't get at home. I'm like that with food, too, though. Whatever the local cuisine is, I will find it and kill it. Great. Now I'm bored, hungry and thirsty.

  27. Simple solution one government regulation that no charge for any service can be more that 15% higher than the current lowest negotiated price. Hospitals and Doctors should have a known rate structure like any other business. So If I go to a hospital that charges $500.00 to BCBS and that is lowest cost negotiated with any provider then the most that hospital can charge me or another insurance company is $575.00 With that one regulation selling across state lines would than be competitive.

  30. I really don't care for the writeup. Rice "repeatedly apologized". The info was released to the public, so what did he apologize for? Raping her? Making her feel uncomfortable in a class? Something in between? Without knowing the wording of Rice's apology, Creepy is telling us nothing.

  32. I don't blame the government for keeping anyone poor. However, I do not like it when the government allows someone to become wealthy by preying upon the poor, the aged, or the ignorant, the powerless. I have never cared for the idea of profiting from the misery of others.

  35. Pretty sure he was talking about the fact that you don't care at all about his dating a married woman, not Auburn as a whole because he was dating a married woman. Yes it happens, but the disturbing part is the acceptance of it. Of course the other part of the story is worse, but it doesn't lessen the first part and the fact that people aren't bothered by it. That's the society he is speaking of. A society accepting of adultery.

  36. There is no hot seat for him (and won't even be after next year if we look the same as this year). There may be for his assistants however. The Tony Jones talk asked about earlier is in regard to Jones being part of Bruce's staff for pretty much all of his success and getting him back would put the A team back together, where it appears to many that his current assistants may not be the best match with Bruce when it comes to on the floor coaching. So in simpler terms, hot seat for Bruce? No way. Hot seat for the rest of the staff? Depends on who they can be replaced with.

  38. LOL, keep spinning. SW's best QB coaching has not come from Gus/Lashlee. JJ did not have the benefit of a better than average QB coach at AU. Hopefully, since Gus' ass will be fired if we put up another season like every season since 2013, Gus has realized his own shortcomings. wde

  39. He sat behind Marshall for two years. Then relieved an injured younger qb for the next two. Even if it is proven the coaching was subpar, he was out performed by lesser talent. Better coaching would have likely benefited all the QBs. Still keeping him on the sidelines. It is what it is and I hope he does well in what ever he does.

  40. First off, the media are the only ones drumming up "hot seat" talk. Just getting themselves clicks. Second, in hindsight, Bruce might have decided to have the press conference last minute because the beats were already in town for Pro Day. If they piss him off with hot seat talk, he might not be as thoughtful next time.

  41. I know this is about Stidam and I think he will at least be a solid guy for us, but Woody Barret looks like a freak of nature. I don't know much about his actual abilities as a QB but if Lindsey can get him right he can be a stud as well

  44. With 4 freshmen as the leading scorers, no less. The sky's the limit for these guys, but I think the potential will be greatest in two years (provided neither Heron nor Wiley go pro), when EJ Montgomery gets here. That'll give us two legit monsters down low, and the versatility to play any style of ball we want to. Don't get me wrong, I'm excited as all get out about next season. It's just that thinking about Wiley and Montgomery with Heron, Harper, Brown, Purifoy, Spencer, McLemore, and the other two recruits from this past cycle (Okeke and Mitchell) gets me very, very excited about the future beyond next year.

  45. This is ludicrous. I love football, and I love Auburn, but cannot imagine that kind of money spent on a sport when our students/alumni are up to their eyes in loan debt (myself included). Color me happy with the current JHS. It has grass and lights. /rant
