  1. Here is a little known fact about Coach Dye. He caused Auburn QB Bryant Harvard to fumble in the the 1960 Auburn/Georgia game which Georgia wound up winning the game because of it. I was a pilot in the Marine Corps stationed at Beaufort, SC in 1960 but I followed Coach Dye's coaching career from when he was the coach at East Carolina to when he became Auburn'd head football coach. He was a winner every where he coached and I was really excited when he was named Auburn's head football coach because I knew we were in good hands and history has proved me correct. What is also amazing to me is that Bryant Harvard the Auburn, QB back in 1960 passed away on Monday, both were 80 years old. That has to be one of the most ironic things I have ever seen. RIP Coach Dye and Bryant. WDE to both of you!!!
  2. What I really wanted to see is our whole team go over to the bama sideline at the end of the game and the whole team stare at waddle with their hands on their hips. Waddle is totally classless but that is no surprise to anybody .😁
  3. I watch it at least once a week just to get my fix on watching the midget lose it. The guy is such an a-hole! WDE!!!
  4. Sorry to hear that about Boobie. I have been wondering why he left the team. A very talented kid, however, there is always someone around to step up and take his place. I wish him well but if he thinks it is going get any easier he is delusional . Thanks for the info, I enjoy reading your posts.,you are one of the brighter ones on here . WDE!!
  5. 1957 Tennesse game at Shields/Watkins Field If you wanted any booze you had to go see the local bootlegger. Stayed with a high school buddy that was going to school there. We won 7-0. Stadium name was changed to Neyland stadium in 1962 but the playing field kept the Shields/Watkins name.
  6. I agree but there were mitigating circumstances in my mind. It was pretty obvious to me the crowd noise had a definite affect on Bo's perfomance, something he had never experienced in High School. He is a winner and I look forward to watching him mature as a QB. I think he is going to give his ole man a run for his money😉! WDE!!! BO
  7. Bird, I appreciate your posting of this letter. It is just one of the facets that goes on the in T-town's win at all costs philosophy , however I don't want you be "falling up the stairs" by posting this document for all to read. Hopefully saban's evil empire is falling to its own destruction . I am not naive enough to know that this kind of stuff goes on elsewhere but to this degree really bothers me. It is just another form of the old plantation system but not in the cotton fields but on the football fields. Take care, Slammer
  8. I hate Kirby's side line crap. He is all over the place yelling and screaming at this players and pacing up ant down on the sideline and on the field where he shouldn't be. I will always remember the "fake field goal" he pulled on us last year !!! That has to be the worst display of sportsmanship I have ever seen. I am so glad LSU kicked his sorry ass today. If anyone deserved it it was him. I also hope this has bounced his sorry ass out of any spot in the playoffs. Ok, I am through venting about Kirby. I guess he learned all his sportsmanship from the his former boss, the midget across the state. Ok I'm done 😉 WDE!!!
  9. I think so also ToraGirl, Joe Burrow has that attitude that has put LSU where they are. The kid is a winner and I will be extremely surprised if GA wins. I have friends from LSU and have been to Baton Rouge for a game a long time ago where we missed an extra point and lost. Our star was Buddy Mclinton and LSU had Tommy Casanova, great game. Even though we lost, I lost all respect for Kirby when he pulled that "fake field goal stunt" on us last year then GA was ahead by 3 TDs with just 3 minutes to play last year. I hope LSU kicks their ass all the way back to Athens.😠
  10. Glad you're back Coach but I know why you left. Great analysis of the Iron Bowl! I pretty much saw the same things in the game , especially the same old holding by bama. You and your family have a great Christmas and last but not least Semper Fi Marine!! Slammer
  11. FINALLY!! Some positive recognition of what Gus has done for us. Yesterday's play call to beat bama was a stroke of genius IMO and left that little man across the state with egg all over his face, not fair my ass. I don't know of any other coach in the heat of battle that could have come up with the scheme to win the game that Gus did. To all you Gus bashers on here, be careful what you wish for!!! Thanks Gus! WDE!!!!
  12. Finebaum is a BAND WAGON RIDER!! I have mentioned this before. He is a total bama fan even though he was born and raised in TN and graduated from UT. He got on the Bear Bryant band wagon when he was doing his radio show in Bham and jumped on the saban band wagon when the midget became the bama football coach. Favorite pro football team, the NE Patriots, favorite baseball team, the NY Yankees. See a pattern here? But I will say he is very smart and has made millions from his show but like I have also said before, he loves schmoozing around real athletes and coaches. They are all good friends of his. SMH!! WDE!!!
  13. TG, you are correct and FYI the code to proceed with the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was "Tora,Tora, Tora" Don't know if you knew that or not.I spent some time in Iwakuni Japan, a Marine Corps air station in 1967 and got along great with the locals. They are really a very polite people and it was hard to believe we were at war with them for four years. WDE!!!
  14. FSU is famous for the fake punt. It seems like they always pull one when they are losing,. Especially when Bowden was the coach. Does the puntrooski come to mind?They sure caught us nappng and it cost us the Natty. 😒 WDE!!! anyway
