  1. AU vs UMASS in JHS 2020

    According to FBSchedules.com, we have UMass on 11/14 then Alabama A&M the next weekend, 11/21. The UMass game is on the date when the UGA game usually is so does that mean we'll move the UGA up a week and play 2 cupcakes between UGA and Bama?

    Sadly, they've turned a bunch of students using inappropriate means to get what they want into a big race war... because they could. The sad thing is, if any of those kids had complained of the same things in a southern school, they would have just been patted on the head and reminded that they were in the South, that some people are just not brought up well, and to not let it bother them. Meanwhile, football players have stolen guns and beat women on camera, only to have full ride scholarships and be celebrated by fans of the school. More sadly, the students turned 2 isolated incidents (that can't even be proven to be true) into a race war because they could. The simple fact that so many supported this race war is the reason people with common sense are staying the heck away from there. They now face a $30 million dollar hole due to the mass exodus and deserve every bit of it. This is where racist mob mentality should get you. Now we have the bet awards calling for hate against "whiteness". But hey, it's only racist if you're white, right? Where's the attorney general calling for love to beat hate here? I digress. Mizzou is in deep and they better do some soul searching. Ah. I needed this quote to remind me of why I almost hated my experience as a person of color at AU. I'm just glad students at Mizzou were empowered to speak about their experience as students of color at Mizzou and no silenced like me and others were during my time at AU. Do you even know the events that led to this? It was completely baseless and blown WAAAAAAAY out of proportion. They were "empowered" alright. Empowered to use their race as a catalyst to start trouble over absolutely nothing. Absolutely horrendous behavior for a person of ANY color. It's an absolute shame there are people like you cheering them on. And I'm sure you know what it means to be a black, a black student at a PWI, and a black student at Mizzou. Thanks for whitesplaining their experiences. You're a major part of the issue. How about white students at PBIs? I'd bet they have no issues. It's only this invention called "whiteness" that's the real problem. Look, I don't doubt that you had a few issues. If you're issue is "micro aggressions", then you have no real issue. Some people are just idiot aholes. It has nothing to do with being at so called PWI. You want to get rid of a lot of "micro aggression"? Drop the segregation attitude. The fact that you label it as a "PWI" shows your stance IMO. It's a primarily HUMAN institute. Let's stop having BET, black awards for this and that, black caucases, black film festivals, NAACP, black this, black that, and expect to be treated as though you want us all to be color blind. No group in this country segregated themselves from the rest of the population more than blacks. Now we have a large movement of people thinking it's ok to be racist towards white people and just call it white priveledge. Talk about "micro aggressions"? What the hell is "white priveledge" and "this invention called whiteness"? Actually, that's not even micro, that's macro. That's spreading intentional thought out and planned racism at its worst. Let's stop pretending that white people are the problem and start holding EVERYONE to the same standards. Somehow I'm sure that would be "unfair" and "racist" to not give special priveledge. Man I am so sick of this pathetic victim mentality that is permeating our entire country. Does it make sense to you that race relations are 100 times worse now than they were 10 years ago? Ever stop and wonder why? It's not because of white priveledge or whiteness I can promise you. It's time to stop this charade of blaming white people for everything bad in black peoples lives and start actually working on making everyone better people. Blaming and attacking ANY group of people for unjust reasons increases and doubles down on the problem. It's time to stop spreading hate period. White people DONT hate you. You probably don't hate white people. Some people are aholes. Address those few people and quit blaming on PWIs as if white people are the problem. PBIs are likely just as bad if not worse. Difference is that no one anywhere gives a damn if a black person says something racist to a white person. Would it make the national news if 50 white students at Alabama A&M protested because somebody saw a black panther sign on a wall and somebody driving by called one of them cracker? Not a chance. This one way street of calling only one race racist is an enormous problem and needs to be stopped. It's time to quit perpetuating the hate spread by leaders who have no interest in unity. They are misleading the masses and no one even cares. Well, guess what. I freaking care. I don't have a bad feeling for any person of any color, gender or background. My only bad feelings come for people who act poorly, of all races genders and backgrounds. The sooner we stop listening to the wrong "leaders" and start taking personal responsibility for the issues we face, the sooner we stop getting mad at a few idiots and blaming an entire race (on all sides), the sooner we decide we aren't going to stand for this pathetic hate and fear mongering and stand united as one human race, the better chance we have of stopping the complete unraveling of everything the good people of this country have worked so hard to create. We are a melting pot. We are "OF MANY, ONE"! We are not racist by default. We are taught racism. It is learned attribute that we hear in our communities from the misguided. People from other countries can tell the real stories of racism. Listen to the words they speak and realize that the real problem with racism in this country isn't oppression, it's hate perpetuated by small minded individuals and spread like cancer through small minded followers who would rather play victim than become true leaders for change. Let's quit giving power to ALL race mongers. Let's refuse to accept that blacks and whites hate each other. Let's refuse to be part of the ever growing problem and instead stand up for being fair and responsible people. Let's spread the truth that white people font hate black and black people don't hate white people. Let's expose the thugs that are doing everything in their power to create turmoil and degrease race relations. They have an agenda and it is not unity or equality. Stop hearing their falsehoods and turn your ear to the truth. Stop spreading hate and hold the hand of all your brothers and sisters. Hold it high. There is only one way to fight this growing issue. Hate has no place in this battle and it's time to stomp it out. Those spreading hate are intensifying the divide and polarizing the issue. Give up on these so called racial leaders and call them what they are. Hate mongers. They crave civil unrest and we are giving it to them. Deny them that which they desire and stand above the fray. We are better than these lowlifes and it's time they stop winning. I'm out of time. Peace. Bravo! Another person who thinks 50ish years of "freedom" by law undoes 400+ years of oppression in every form. And you're still a MAJOR part of the issue. I'll let you know that I probably just read 2 lines of your statement because I already see your education level on diversity/social justice is low. So I will pass along some readings for you to begin to understand an experience you'll never have. Start with "Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack" by Peggy McIntosh and then let me know if you're interested in actually learning about experiences or whitesplaining it for us. If you only read 2 lines of the statement, you missed the entire point. Read the whole thing and then respond. In your defense, I went on a rant and you didn't say enough to deserve a rant. The rant was a build up that came out. If you're still making this about race, you should seriously read the ENTIRE post I made, or your missing the ENTIRE point of it. I'll read and private message you...

    When were you at AU? I ask because I know when I was there, they had some race problems that were allowed to fester. I was also there when the Old South Parade was finally sent to pasture because they knew, every year, it was going to end in a big confrontation. At the same time, while the issues were often, sadly, tolerated, the were also isolated to specific groups who actually made up a small percentage of the population. More often than not, they seemed to be focused around the Greek system. For the most part, the campus was very integrated and people got along. My roommate, Hiram, had far more issues when he went home to Mobile than he ever had at Auburn. He was terrified to bring his white girlfriend (now wife) home with him, but they barely got a second glance when they were in Auburn. I can tell you as someone who went to Auburn and grew up/lives within a relatively short drive on Missouri's campus, and who's wife went to Missouri for a time, that they don't have a clue what racial intolerance looks like on Missouri's campus. This whole thing literally started with someone whining about being called a name by some redneck passing in a truck, and someone complaining about an anti-Jewish symbol on a wall. All I need to do is go to any small town within 30 minutes of my house and I'll see MUCH worse. While it's true that the racial issues in our country need to be fixed, shielding college students from them is going to do nothing but make them unprepared when they get out into the real world and have to face them with no one to protest to. I was at AU from 2008-12. Most of what I'm talking about isn't major "race problems" like what people imagine is happening at Mizzou. It's more or less microagressions and other silent forms of oppression that many students of color face at PWIs across the nation, including AU and Mizzou. As for students at Mizzou, I'm not one so I can't speak for their experience. I can't speak for their upbringing, education on diversity/social justice issues, or campus climate. As a person of color who attended a PWI, I can relate to how they feel cause I felt the same way at times...and AU is far worse in the category of diversity/social justice education compared to Mizzou. And students of color at PWIs around the country feel the same. I'm sure the black students at Mizzou have dealt with racism their whole life so they don't need to be "shielded" from anything. They're just not taking the BS and advocating for equitable status on campus. People may see these as isolated, one time issues, but being a person of color at a PWI can be extremely draining. Incidents pile up and you can never predict which one tips the iceberg and sends someone over the edge. I had reached my tipping point while at AU, but wasn't educated on how to advocate for myself and others like these students have.
  6. He's slow. When it comes to speaking moron, I'm not up to speed. Racism? Neither the Emancipation Proclamation nor the Civil War was supposed to end "racism". And that's not what this is all about either. Point is, this angry actor had no point. Gentrification of our genius? Invented whiteness? What the hell is that supposed to mean, does anyone know? Gentrification of genius refers to whites taking the creations of blacks and rebranding/appropriating it as their own. Think of it as gentrification in the housing sense where poor neighborhoods are demolished and refurbished for the wealthy.

  8. I work as an administrator in higher education and the reports of what's been going on there are asinine and appalling. Not only is the Baylor football program gonna crumble to pieces but Baylor itself will face major repercussions as well. Sexual assault is taken very seriously in higher education and the fact they didn't even investigate the claims may have their federal funding taken from them. I'm interested to see what happens with this in the future.
  9. Auburn vs All Opponents

    cfbdatawarehouse.com It's really good with scores and other facts.
  10. College Station

    I also live in College Station. You're actually coming to the area on a good weekend because this Friday is First Friday in downtown Bryan (which is like the equivalent of Opelika to Auburn). Downtown Bryan is a very unique area and have many bars/shops. It's alot less rowdy than Northgate. There will be merchants, food trucks, street performers, etc outside the establishments downtown. There's plenty of good eateries there too, It Must Be Heaven (sandwhich shop), Murphy's Law (German cuisine), Papa Perez (Mexican), Madden's (upscale dining), Proudest Monkey (some of the best burgers in town), Caffè Capri (Italian). I'm actually a foodie in town so I can recommend plenty of places depending on what you're looking for. I hope everyone visiting enjoys their trip to Aggieland!
  11. Run Defense

    Louisville rushed for 238 yards against us and in their last 2 games combined have rushed for under 100 yards of offense. Clemson held Louisville to 19 yards rushing. Our rush defense is pretty bad. Possibly epically bad by the time Chubb, Henry, etc. get done with us.
  12. ***Auburn at Georgia - Game Thread***

    Am I the only one who finds it funny at how bad we suck now? I can't stop laughing and not even mad at all. I've never seen a team go into a bye week (before USCe) and come back astoundingly worse like this.
  13. Virginia Tech / Ohio State

    Just curious, how did you deal with the 2004 Sugar Bowl? Or are you young enough that wasn't an issue for you? It wasn't an issue lol. I graduated from AU in '12 and VT in '14. I would love to see them meet on the field but AU will always be first and foremost for me.
  14. Virginia Tech / Ohio State

    I'm a VT alum as well as an AU alum so this game made me SUPER happy. The proudest I've ever been after a Hokie football game. I can see VT running the table into the ACC Champ game because of their incredibly weak schedule. They do have a knack for losing games to trams they shouldn't, but they're survived the biggest test I see them having all season.
  15. AU home & home vs Clemson

    Well...was Jacobs in touch with numerous other schools and they all turned him down? If so, who were they? No one outside the athletic dept knows for sure. But it's more logical to assume he did contact multiple schools than he only talked to Clemson. They may not have all said no, but Clem was the first to say yes. Others would likely still be in discussion about future years. I like it, but 5 games in 8 years is a little much, unless out is a conference rival. I would love to see us play Nebraska again. We had a home-and-home with them in the early 80s when they were very good and we were very bad. We also played them in the Cotton Bowl a few years ago. I seem to remeber reading somewhere that Nebraska,Michigan,and Notre Dame were all willing to play but it had to be either a 2 for 1 or a home and neutral sight game. Phillip Marshall said something like this. I frankly would rather play Clemson -- or anyone -- home and home than give in to schools that won't deign to visit Jordan-Hare. And Phil's a jackpot winner hitting it right on the money. I recall over the last 10 years or so where articles would occasionally surface specifically about Michigan and Notre Dame spurning home and home requests with AU for the aforementioned alternatives. This is where I fail to understand why some wish to play these schools. I've heard the argument before regarding the media hyped prestige and mystique surrounding these schools. That may have mattered through the 90's but holds little water now. We're in information age where people gravitate towards whats trending--and neither of them are. AU has done more in 2010 and 2013 than either of those schools combined since the turn of the millennium. If we can't meet on simple terms, then its bowl game or bust as far as the likelihood of an encounter. I really have a hard time believing these rumors due to Michigan, and Notre Dame's scheduling patterns. Michigan has a home and home scheduled with Arkansas soon and the Cowboy Kickoff with Florida. They even played a home and home with UConn recently. We definitely have a better reputation than Arky and UConn. Notre Dame scheduled a home and home with UGA and have done Tennessee in the past. It would baffle me why they would have to have a 2-1 deal to play a team like Auburn when they've done much less for similar or lesser opponents. If the rumors are true, then there's something seriously wrong.
