  1. It's undervalued by market standards now, but I believe it was pretty stout when first negotiated and I've read that building the SEC's national perception/brand was a consideration that mattered almost as much as money. Seems to have worked...
  2. Ya know, those Clemson teams turned out to be pretty good and the losses were all close. I will give you the "let's play musical chairs with QB's because our starter may be our starter but then again maybe not" game. Still scratch my head over that one. But other than that, given what Dabo turns out to have had in terms of teams, I can't say I see those L's (other than the one with the QB musical chairs) as a black mark on Gus. Our Tigers were pretty even. We just lost is all.
  3. Way back when I worked on relief for Hurricane Katrina we hired a sure 'nuff Cajun to help out. I really liked the guy but in just about every conversation I felt like I needed a translator. He'd speak and I'd be all like "What did he say?" LOL's!
  4. I'm gonna say there are two... First is the August 31st opener against Oregon because it sets both the tone for the season and will have an outsized effect on national perceptions. Win that game and our Tigers are assumed to really be in the hunt. Lose that game and our Tigers will be battling the resulting perception all season long. Second pivotal game is the September 21st SEC opener on the road against Texas A&M. It matters in terms of the SEC West, in terms of perception of Gus Malzahn, and in terms of our Tiger's chances nationally. I really can't separate these games in terms of which is more pivotal in terms of our Tigers having a shot at the whole ball of wax come season's end. And just for the record, I expect our Tigers to win 'em both. War Eagle!
  5. <pedantic> Odd response to my response. I know what the poster I responded to was trying to say but I tend to be a bit pedantic when it comes to language. You say "very obviously was referring to...." I say I understand that was the intent but that some could easily misunderstand. The sentence reads "CBD does contain trace amounts of THC, and before you argue..." I just was (pedantically) pointing out that CBD does not contain THC just as THC does not contain CBD. As I said, different molecules entirely. I do however agree 100% that products like CBD oil are almost certain to contain at least trace amounts of THC. That is not in doubt. </pedantic>
  6. I will argue that your claim here is at best a poorly constructed sentence. THC and CBD are different molecules. One does not contain the other. If your claim is that CBD oil and other such products contain trace amounts of THC, then yes, you are correct. But CBD is not THC and does not contain THC. As I said, they are entirely different chemicals/molecules.
  7. The Gus bashing had gotten old. Same crowd never misses an opportunity to be negative. Whatever trips your trigger I guess...
  8. How many times did Tubs do that? Tuberville is my floor for AU, not my standard. Very average coach and recruiter. Very.
  9. Man, that was hard to watch. My heart goes out to Samantha Cerio, her family and her coaches and teammates. On edit... My own daughter was a gymnast and her name is also Samantha. She even looks a little like Ms. Cerio. It really did hurt to watch the video. I can't say how much I hope this young woman makes a full recovery.
  10. A bad look? Nah. It's a player in the moment hoping that a great free throw shooter chokes and you know what? The only "bad look" would be the winners of that game or their fans being upset about it...or some AU fans being in agreement with them. Game's over. No one gives a sh*t.
  11. I sometimes catch grief on the football forum for saying after losses that "It's only a game." And ya know, it is only a game. But... At age 58 I still love Auburn and the outcomes of these contests are still important to me. Tonight's loss stung in a way I can't say that I expected. And I did shed tears. But those tears were more for the players and for the coaches than for the game. To have their hearts ripped out like that...I just don't have the words. It's GREAT to be an Auburn Tiger., WAR DAMN EAGLE! If anyone knows when this team will be returning to Auburn, let me know. I want to be there. I want them to know that Auburn people care.
  12. As a fan of Auburn football I love this. But if I were advising any player with the best draft grade at their position who was likely to go in the first round or second round of the NFL draft, I'd tell them to go, that they should strike while the iron is hot and secure their future. I hope this works out for him exactly as he wants it to. So here's to a dominant senior season free of any serious injury and an even higher draft grade next year. War Eagle, Derrick Brown!
  13. Clark's had offers, I'm pretty sure. I think he's aiming... bigger.
  14. I agree. I think this hire is at least a fifty-fifty shot at being a bust.
  15. We lose to Kent State and Gus gets the Ned Stark** treatment at the post game presser. **Game of Thrones reference.
  16. I always love reading posts like this with the benefit of hindsight.
  17. When I saw the title I assumed this was a joke thread. And it is a joke thread, just not in the way I thought. Wow!
  18. Son., how old are you? I mean seriously. Can you read for comprehension? Let me see if I can make this clear. If you dip your wick in a well, and your wick is wrapped in rubber, your wick ain't gonna get wet and it isn't gonna leave residue in the well. Now if you want pictures, I suggest you Google for some pRon. Or maybe ask your daddy how babies are made. I don't care what sort of well a wick gets dipped into, as long as that wick is well wrapped, it's not leaving a deposit. No deposit, no baby. Do you get it now, or are you really just that special?
  19. You can't get your feet wet in a puddle if you wear the right footwear. You can't get a trap baby if you wrap that rascal. Educate yourself.
  20. Freshman orientation needs a class on "These are condoms. You can call them rubbers or you can call them raincoats or you can call them 'I ain't payin' no damn child support without a job', but whatever you call them, don't dip your wick in the well without one."
  21. Geeze, man. I dunno. Bowden was an excellent game day coach, and the debacle that was 1998 after an SEC Championship appearance the year before has to have the context of losing five, count 'em, five centers before the first game. The center is like the QB of the offensive line. Even so, the 98 team, as bad as it was, took eventual national champ Tennessee to the wire with Ben Leard running the option. For real. Bowden also gave AU the undefeated "best team on radio" season in 93. (I get tired of hearing "Yeah, but those were Dye's players." Maybe so, but Dye wasn't winning with 'em in 91 or 92.) Dye? Pat Dye was...Pat Dye. Sometimes the sideline organization was...something other than organization. And there were a few painful losses and blowouts along the way. For example, in the fall of '87 I was in the stands at Jordan-Hare to watch our Tigers beat FSU. Only by the 4th quarter it was like 34-6 bad guys. I was also in the stands in January 84 for the Sugar Bowl, a win to be sure, but a boring as hell 9-7 win. AU entered ranked third. Number one and number two lost their bowl games. So I expected AU to be poll national champs. Unfortunately Miami's thrilling win over Nebraska vaulted them from number five to number one and AU finished right where we started at number three. I've always felt that if Dye had been less conservative, had opened up the wishbone run by Randy Campbell with Bo Jackson and company in the backfield, our Tigers would have scored more points instead of the snooze fest that was that game and our Tigers would have won the national championship. Outside of that...Dye lost to a Gene Stallings led bammer team that had a losing record. He lost to a not very good Ray Perkins led bammer team as well. All that said, he did a LOT for AU, from expanding the stadium to improving the library, and of course he got bammer to Jordan-Hare. I will always love me some Pat Dye. Tubs? Tubs was an 8-4 coach on average. His record and Malzahn's record on average are just not very different. Tubs teams would beat some teams our Tigers were not supposed to stand a chance against...and lose to some we had no business losing to. AU made Tubs, he didn't make AU. His subsequent records at TT and Cincy kind of prove the point. Average. Very average. Chiz? Hardly a nightmare except for 2012. 2009 put the fun back into AU football after Tubs and the BBQ Boyz took it out in 2008. And 2010 brought the only (recognized by AU and consensus) national championship of my lifetime, and I was born in 1961. 2012 was a disaster of epic proportions, but it doesn't erase the good in 2009, 2010 (the national championship) and some good moments in 2011 including a nice bowl win. Gus? I dunno. Average as in a record very similar in terms of wins and losses to Tubs. I think a lot of AU fans may be giving up on Gus too soon. If things don't improve in the coming season, I will likely join them. That's my opinion. You know what they say, everybody has one. War Eagle!
  22. The Gus Bus is back for 2019. May as well be on board because that's the ride. I for one hope it's pedal to the metal. Bring back the offense of 2009. Or 2010. Or 2013 and 2014. Do what we do and do it ludicrous speed! War Eagle! On edit... Anyone else note that there is more than a passing resemblance between Rick Moranis in Spaceballs and Malzahn? Maybe Malzahn is Moranis on stilts.
  23. Some outfit with some credibility did a computer thing or a poll thing that recognized Terry Bowden's first edition of the Auburn Tigers as National Champions following that undefeated season. Scrappy bunch. Thought Vandy had the game when they had it first and goal at the one right there at the end. I gave up and turned that game off. And the Tigers stuffed 'em! Anyway...long way of saying I think 1993 should be on the list.
