  2. http://www.rockcityt...on-coordinator/ By Adam Ritchey On January 11, 2014· in Featured, Sports, US News TUSCALOOSA , Ala. – Alabama football coach Nick Saban announced the hiring of Lane Kiffin Friday as NCAA Violation Coordinator. Kiffin, who was fired as head coach at USC only five games into the 2013 season, is renowned in coaching circles for his creative approach to flaunting NCAA regulations. “I am tremendously excited about Lane joining our staff,” said Saban. “We’ve broken all the easy rules. Lane will take us to a whole ‘nother level.” Although widely known as a key figure in the Reggie Bush debacle at USC, Saban said it was Kiffin’s relentless violations of NCAA rules at Tennessee that first caught his attention.
  3. Yeah....this is the same coach who signaled his quarterback to spike the ball on 4th down against Miami!
  4. Hey, thanks for adding that link. I thought I copied and pasted the link showing the page you did. Not sure what happened. Sorry guys
  5. http://sports.yahoo....llege-football/ mod note: can we please include the text of the link instead of just linking the article?
  6. Just saw this tweet in the Join the Conversation column for Auburn: Takeo Spikes ‏@TakeoSpikes51 Vote now for Auburn in the #UltimateTeam vote! Voting Closes Tomorrow ! http://es.pn/1aWHSOy
  7. Sorry for the duplicate post on this topic. Please just delete the one I posted. Thanks.
  8. I never heard even one Auburn person express the slightest concern that this was going to be about Auburn. I doubt you did either. bammers aren't exactly famous for being honest. None of us were worried because Auburn's football proram has been on the right side of the NCAA for nearly 20 years now. Some of us thought uat might be the center of the story. Why? Because uat has been on probation for cheating and paying players for nearly 20 years now. When you run a clean program, like Auburn does, you need not worry about getting busted. When you run a corrupt program, like uat does, you are constantly worried. All I can tell you is I frequent several businesses everyday with my job down here in SE Alabama and believe me there are AU people that have been uneasy about lot of this ncaa stuff since November. Maybe it is different where you live but not here. Funny how things are different on a message board than in real life looking someone in their eyes talking to them. I guess we are all guilty of typing and hiding behind a computer screen but I am not lying about my conversations with local AU folks I know. I live in SE Alabama. I am in no way questioning your statement. However, I can honestly say that of all the Auburn fans I know, I haven't heard a single one express any concern or worry about this NCAA crap since the facts began coming out last year.
  9. You have to buy a photo or print for $20 and then Quentin will autograph it for 'free'. Thanks, but no thanks.
  10. Thanks for the heads up. Do you know the time frame for his signing session?
  11. Gawd, that has always frustrated the heck out of me! I don't know how many times I've witnessed how the majority of the crowd waits until the opposing offense is already into calling their play at the line before they start making any noise!
  12. This is information my sister received March 4 in an email from Jay Jacobs:
  13. Personally, I wouldn't want this guy anywhere near Auburn. Link
  14. Yes, I agree. Bastage didn't even leave me feedback! PS. I wish I could find out this was him.......I'd post a link to his EBAY avatar (with Aubie holding the elephant) on a message board and sit back and enjoy!
  15. Would James Willis have lived in Columbus, Ga. while coaching at Auburn? I was just wondering because last Aug. I sold a couple of books commemorating Auburn's undefeated season under Terry Bowden on EBAY. A Mr. James A. Willis in Columbus bought them. His ebay name was Sgt. Willis. I thought at the time it might be him. It's nothing important, just a little interesting if it turned out to be him. What's also interesting if it is him.......the avatar for this person on EBAY currently shows a cartoon drawing of Aubie holding Big Al by the neck!
  16. I did an internet search using that quote and it brought up Scout.com. ...but you have to have a paying account. So perhaps anyone on this board who is a paying Scout member could look it up. It does attribute the quote to Spurrier in the search results.
  17. Jehremy's New Quest Look's like his brethren are trying to get him beaten to a pulp!
  18. Well, as much as I hate to admit it, I think he should.
  19. The only time I've ever been to Fan Day and actually enjoyed it, was when it was held on the practice field behind the athletic bldg. years ago. It was much easier to get quite a few autographs. They had maybe eight to ten 'star' players, Aubie and the head coach separated--each with their own line at the edge of the field. All the other players were grouped together on the field by position. I never saw anything wrong with that setup. Still don't see anything wrong with it.
  20. link Cheaters Feel Cheated: Patriots Fans Want Final 1:40 of Super Bowl XLII Investigated Posted Feb 9th 2008 1:10PM by Dan Benton Filed under: NY Giants, Patriots, NFL Fans, Boston, Super Bowl, New York, Featured Stories In a humorously ironic twist, fans of the New England Patriots are demanding that the NFL investigate the final 1:40 of Super Bowl XLII because -- get this -- they feel cheated. And no, this is not a joke. According to the disgruntled Patriots fan who created the original petition on petitiononline.com, the game clock should not have stopped following Brandon Jacobs' fourth-and-one plunge and thus, the game should have ended on the sack of Eli Manning with 50 seconds remaining. This fan, and the other 7,815 (and counting) who have apparently signed this ridiculous petition, were obviously too busy crying in their beer to realize that it was an administrative time-out. The referee's were determining whether or not to measure the spot -- something that requires a clocks-stoppage under NFL rules. Once the first down was determined without a measurement, the clock was wound and continued to run. If anything, using the fan's logic, this petition proves that New England shouldn't have had 35 seconds left on their next possession. If anything, they should have had 29 seconds or less. But hey, what can you expect from fans who say they love their team at 18-0 and then claim they were bored to tears during the greatest Super Bowl of all time? BOOHOO!!!
