  1. I think the “16 year old, inexperienced” explanation only works if it’s truly a situation where experience would help. Like say if you hydroplane and hit the brakes instead of just drift until the treads get traction again. That’s a rookie mistake that you learn from and get better at over time. That’s not anyone’s fault. Maverick and Goose getting stuck in a jet wash and crashing was no ones fault - it just happened and Mav didn’t have any chance of recovering. If, however, you’re knowingly speeding or driving recklessly, I’d say that anything that comes your way IS your fault because you should know better. Being 16 is no excuse for reckless behavior behind the wheel. If you’re not mentally competent enough to handle the responsibility of driving a car at high speeds, you should wait to drive until you get the concept of safety for yourself and others on the road. Granted, kids do stuff like this all the time and it’s not unique. That doesn’t make it okay just because it’s common. Dropping below the hard deck to get missile lock on Jester was a deliberate choice to break the rules and as Viper said, “those rules of engagement are there for your safety.” An accident could have occurred that might have cost lives and then, someone definitely would have been at fault. and yes, Top Gun is one of my favorite movies, why do you ask?
  2. It will affect you when an Auburn fan or rival fan, indulging hardcore at the game decides to pick a fight over some trivial matter and somebody gets hurt. Drinking at games has been going on forever but it’s always been limited - you can only sneak in so much through the gates so nobody is getting plastered at the game only. The drunks who get in the game are typically kicked out by the cops soon after the game starts or they pass out soon after. Some people can get creative - I once was able to get a whole 750 ml of Crown Royal into the 2008 LSU game - but usually you share that with everyone. This selling at the game is a recipe for disaster and I’m glad I can still attend an Auburn game without getting sucker punched because I’m cheering for my team. I will not be attending any games at away stadiums where alcohol is being served freely.
  3. Probably in regulation. Purdue hit 99 last night in OT.
  4. I think this is probably what will eventually happen. However I think they’ll tear down Beard-Eaves and build a partial parking deck/partial class building on the site, maybe a new kinesiology building? Sports science? Definitely Biggio needs to go. It’s practically useless anyway. Turn it into the driveway for the football facility and leave it at that - no public thru traffic.
  5. It’s plenty big, if you build up. Put in a parking deck on the ground floor, meeting rooms, conference rooms, reception, cafeteria on the first floor. New state of the art weight room, plunge pools, rehab, etc on the next floor. Have a floor just for recruits and players - Xbox and PlayStation, pool, lounge, etc. then have your coaches’ offices and position meeting rooms on the top floor with the view. Give the head coach an office like the one at Oregon’s facility - all open with big windows and a great view of the practice fields. You could even tear up Biggio and build an access tunnel to the practice fields or the indoor facility that could lead straight from the weight room floor. As long as you think Up and not out, there’s plenty of room at the old track. Plus that’s probably the only real option unless you demolish the coliseum first.
  6. Imagine if we had that kind of depth at linebacker! 16 scholarship backers? Why then we’d only need 5-6 linebackers a year every class. Imagine the possibilities.......
  7. That's an interesting theory about Borges. But no. After Cole Bennett scored that last TD to make it 28-7, everyone in that stadium knew for sure that it was over. Tubs called off the dogs and put in the subs. Prevent defense allowed Alabama to score the next 11 points to get it close. We missed a field goal to make it 31-18 too. But we never stopped sacking Croyle hahahahahahahahahahahahaha. I'll never get tired of that game. Greatest thing I've ever personally witnessed in JHS.
  8. Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon them. May their souls and all the souls of the dearly departed, through the mercy of God, Rest In Peace. Amen
  9. In the last 12 years: 2-4 in Tuscaloser (2006, 2010) 0-5 in Athens 0-6 in LSU Well, I guess it'd be 13 years to include 2006 in there but whatever. As far as other teams since 2006: vs Arkansas - 3-3 vs Ole Miss - 5-2 vs MSU - 4-3 vs A&M - 3-0 (2013, 2015, 2017) vs Tennessee - 2-0 (2009, 2013) vs USC - 2-0 (2006, 2011) vs UK - 2-0 (2010, 2015) vs Florida - 1-0 (2007) vs Mizzou - 1-0 (2017) vs Vandy - 0-2 - both losses in bad years of 2008 and 2012 I remember when Tubs made a big deal about playing for pride in the white jerseys. There was a stretch of like 3 seasons where we lost like only 1 away game? I miss those days boy howdy.
  10. You gotta pass to set up the run at this point. The O line is incapable of getting a push against the top half of SEC defenses. Let Stidham throw a good bit and use the most talented part of our offense and then see some running lanes open up. No way we can try to line up and get positive yards on the ground with our standard inside zone. Defense? Sure we’re man enough. Give them some momentum to work with and they’ll play more than well enough to win. Just don’t think it’ll be enough. Got to have the best game offensively of the season. I’m not betting on it but I’ll be cheering hard nonetheless.
  11. Agreed. Don’t waste Hugh Freeze on Gus..
  12. We’ll have Tega, Troxell, and Brams returning - all 3 seem to have some potential provided they get the right coaching. Not sure what happened to Horton or Harrell. At any rate, the O-line COULD be better next year with the right coaching and focus. But I realize that’s asking a lot of this staff.
  13. Could just as easily be MSU vs UAT on Nov 10. That will be a ranked matchup where auburn will be Unranked regardless of this weekend’s game. I’m thinking that regardless of us winning or losing this weekend, it’ll be a night game in Athens.
