    Mizzou gets postseason ban

    What I get from all this is don't admit to any wrong doing. Let the NCAA find the proof. The saying that honesty is the best policy doesn't apply here. It gets you in trouble to admit to any wrong doing. The NCAA is an absolute joke these days. As long as Emmert is in charge they will remain a joke. JMO WDE!!!

    Shepard Smith takes a shot at Alabama

    I didn't know Smith was an Ole Miss alum. I guess he figured out along with everybody else that bama blew the whistle on Ole Miss after they beat bama two years in a row. Too much of a coincidence.

    Shepard Smith takes a shot at Alabama

    At least somebody besides us and the rest of the SEC knows what goes on in T Town. WDE

    Bama departures

    None of this surprises me. It's like Parris Island where you were under constant pressure to perform. I have always thought saban's charming personality would get the best of him eventually. and the exodus of his coaches sort of proves that point. I will give him this, he is a great organizer but I am not sold on this mantra of "he is the greatest college coach of all time".He is a horrible game day coach. The fake punt is a prime example. He has had a lot of help that no other coaches get, at least not to my knowledge ,ie The REC, cars, moving families, jobs for family and girl friends etc. It will be very interesting how this all turns out. WDE!!!

    Feeling better about next year

    After watching Bo Nix's performance in the UA All American bowl I am optimistic about this coming season. Watched an interview he had and some more of his highlights and was impressed with his play and his attitude and confidence. He seems like a true leader and that is what a QB has to be. Also the offensive line seems to have improved a lot. I can't remember seeing an AU team click like they did in the Music City bowl. I guess the real Stidham finally showed up. I hope Gus and the team continue their excellent play into the coming season. WDE!!!

    KB leaves Houston to be FSU OC

    I was really impressed with Army's tackling. It is very obvious the were very well coached on defense. They made a lot of text book tackles. Houston's technique on the other hand was atrocious and the score really told a story. Congrats to Army on a great game plan and execution. WDE

    Bammers Oklahoma Meme

    This ranks right up there in New Orleans where a bama grad, no less, had laid his "package" on a passed out LSU fan in a Crystal restaurant and all the bammers cheered him on. after bama had beaten LSU in Baton Rouge. They have to be the most classless fan base in college football.

    West Virginia vs Oklahoma

    Good Lord, how much more obvious can you get!! Looks like Oklahoma is the darling of the big twelve much like bama is in the SEC.
  10. That game in 1948 was the reason I chose to go to AU. I was 9 years old and as families did back then me and my parents went out to dinner and a movie. I had no clue that the rivalry had renewed or even existed. I didn't even know if there was one. Anyway me and my family went to Britling's on downtown 20th street for dinner. It is gone now but it was like a Piccadilly restaurant of today. After dinner we walked a few blocks to the Alabama theater to see "Casablanca". During all this time all I heard was "War Eagle" in the restaurant, on the street corners and even in the movie theater. I can't remember hearing a "Roll Tide". The next morning I saw where Alabama beat us 55-0!! My only thought was the way the Auburn students had reacted with so much spirit after getting beat so badly. and I said to my self I want to be there when they win one!! Well 1957 was my first year at API as it was known then and we beat Bama 40-0 so I guess I got my wish !! WDE

    Finding success in the details

    I saw the same thing 72, Stidham was yucking it up like WE were ahead 27-10. That told me he did not have his head in the game. I saw absolutely nothing to smile about. It was like he didn't care about being behind 17 points. His attitude sort of shocked me to be honest. I think all NFL and Heisman talk along with the praise he got from his first year went to his head. He is definitely not the same QB now that he was his first year at AU. I recall my watching our 1957 team practice. We had coaches that would not put up with anything less than total effort. Coaches Shot Senn and Gene Lorendo come to mind. If they caught him laughing and cutting up with what the situation was, Stidham would still be running the stadium steps. with maybe a bull in the ring session for good measure. Times have changed.

    Veterans day

    Same to ya Marine. I am glad they made the 11th Veteran's Day, because it gave all Marines a day to recover from celebrating our birthday which takes a lot of time and a lot of aspirin to recover from. 😊

    Uat as LSU

    No, it's not whining, it's the truth. I am reading more and more stuff about this and it seems that a lot more folks are getting the gist of things that are going on in T-town and have been going on for quite some time. Unfortunately the NCAA has been turning a blind eye to the things that are going on at bama .and do not care what is behind it. The REC has been buying the best players in the country and getting away with it for years so it's no big mystery why bama is kicking everyone's butt. Unfortunately, until the saban/emmeret coalition is broken nothing is going to change. JMO WDE

    Bama is good, but the calls they get are ridiculous

    I tried to click on the above site and it says "cannot be found", imagine that LOL. Never thought I would see college football get this corrupt but it has and why Emmeret is still head of the NCAA if beyond me. Hope I live long enough to see something done about all of this but I not betting the ranch on it. WDE anyway!!

    Butch Jones on Alabama Sideline

    I think the only solution to the SEC officiating problem would be that no official can be associated with an SEC school. As long as Steve Shaw is in charge nothing is going to change unfortunately. One can always hope. WDE
