  1. I am on I 10 heading to Dothan, getting out early. Stay safe eveyone.
  2. Jimbo and Pruit can't be far behind?????
  3. Tucker Frederickson will always be my all time favorite player, he was a terror on both sides of the ball
  4. That's a short period in December we turn the a/c up to 78.
  5. A lot of us are guilty of blanking out those years....
  6. Good for you, I wonder about his post but do not speak negatively ever. I am a 74 year old Male with onset dementia. I have been AU fan since the 1950's, I remember every game I attended. I cannot remember things like the year, score etc. Sometimes I use Google and I have been criticized by some on this board for doing so and I just ignore those post. So please everyone, do not talk negative about a4e until you know the complete story.
  7. We played Vandy in the 1955 Gator Bowl (I think), the next bowl was the 1963 team played Nebraska in the Orange Bowl (?). Probably played New Years day 1964, heart breaking loss. Last drive by Jimmy Sidle, Tucker Fredrickson and crew ended with a incomplete pass in the endzone as time expired. I lost my first football bet (10$ with my boss). Broke my heart and my wallet.
  8. We were AP national champs in 57, no bowl game though.
  9. Is it standard practice to review poessions during To's and change the score?
  10. JF was one of the players of that era that I believe could excel in todays game. He was just a great athlete. Don't remember anything like that, but he was a pure shooter, amazing ball handler. Only saw him play twice, I saw us beat Kentucky and Jimmy took the team on his shoulders that day.
  11. Did not attend Auburn, unfortunately, I was accepted and ready to go when my 17 year old world fell apart. We want go there, just part of life.
  12. Correct, saw my first AU basketball game when I was 16, in Montgomery in a dark and dungeons old arena.
  13. I was around with Joel Eaves, great era. Jimmy Fibbie was one of my all time favorite players.
