  1. it was a troll. believe brad all you want. it is like fishing and seeing who will bite. the lie thing is not true. you have waited a while for something to jump me on but the two are not even remotely the same. i trolled just about everyone on this board a couple of years being rude and mean for a long time. and finally someone called me on it. so i asked them and this was my whole point on "that" troll was why is it ok for trump to do it every single day and you righties give him a pass and not everyone else. i do not expect you to get it because a bug crawled up your butt concerning me. but when it comes down to it i am more honest than most. when i was wrong i apologized. and you seldom if EVER see it.prove me i am wrong.

  4. Observations, changes on Auburn's updated 2020 roster By Tom Green | 5-6 minutes One of the surest signs that fall camp is around the corner arrived Tuesday. Not only did the SEC announce an altered fall camp schedule, but Auburn published its updated official roster for the 2020 season. The update included new arrivals, number changes, a couple of position changes, the return of a familiar face and one notable absence -- for now. Here are a few of’s observations after reviewing the 2020 roster: Position changes: -- Redshirt sophomore Matthew Hill, who played wide receiver during his first two seasons on the Plains, is officially listed as a defensive back. The 6-foot-1, 190-pounder had eight catches for 46 yards last season, but Gus Malzahn said this spring that the plan was to give Hill some opportunities on defense. Spring practices were wiped out by the pandemic, so Auburn never got to see Hill get reps at defensive back, but that is now his primary position heading into fall camp. -- Howard transfer Caylin Newton, the younger brother of former Heisman- and national championship-winning Auburn quarterback Cam Newton, is officially listed at wide receiver. Newton played quarterback at Howard before transferring to Auburn. He’s also wearing No. 23 this season and is listed at 5-foot-11 and 201 pounds. A familiar face returns: -- As reported Tuesday afternoon, former punter Aidan Marshall has rejoined the team. He was the Tigers’ starting punter in 2017 and earned the starting job in fall camp before the 2018 season. After the season opener, he was supplanted by Arryn Siposs on the depth chart and subsequently left the team with the intent to transfer. Despite offers from Louisville, Tennessee and Iowa State, Marshall remained at Auburn last year to finish his degree. Coaches then approached him last week about returning to the team this season. One player missing: -- Noticeably absent from the updated roster: recent punter commit Oscar Chapman, the Pro Kick Australia product who committed to the Tigers in July. The reason for Chapman’s exclusion is simple -- he hasn’t yet arrived on campus despite originally expecting to move in Aug. 1. -- Another punting note: After entering the offseason without many options at punter, Auburn has since added Chapman, Marshall and Garner-Webb transfer Crimmins Hankinson, who averaged 39.6 yards on 73 punts as a freshman last season. Number changes: -- Several returning players changed numbers this offseason, including sophomore linebacker Owen Pappoe, who switched from No. 10 to No. 0. Pappoe is the first Auburn player to don that number; the NCAA this offseason voted to approve allowing players to wear the No. 0. Junior wide receiver Anthony Schwartz switched from No. 5 to No. 1, junior linebacker Zakoby McClain changed from No. 35 to No. 9, while junior safety Jamien Sherwood switched from No. 9 to No. 20. Senior defensive back Devan Barrett went from No. 12 to No. 10, sophomore defensive lineman Jaren Handy switched from No. 96 to No. 55, and senior Buck T.D. Moultry changed from No. 55 to No. 99. Newcomer numbers, measureables: -- DE Zykeivous Walker (6-foot-4, 266 pounds), No. 3 -- RB Tank Bigsby (6-foot, 204), No. 4 -- DE Jay Hardy (6-4, 299), No. 4 -- WR Kobe Hudson (6-1, 196), No. 5 -- DB Chris Thompson Jr. (6-1, 202), No. 5 -- WR Ze’Vian Capers (6-4, 194), No. 9 -- DB Ladarius Tennison (5-10, 197), No. 13 -- QB Chayil Garnett (6-1, 216), No. 15 -- WR Elijah Canion (6-4, 213), No. 17 -- DB Eric Reed Jr. (6-0, 187), No. 24 -- LB Desmond Tisdol (6-0, 231), No. 30 -- LB Wesley Steiner (6-0, 227), No. 32 -- LB Cam Riley (6-4, 209), No. 35 -- Buck Romello Height (6-3, 215), No. 37 -- OL Tate Johnson (6-3, 309), No. 54 -- OL Avery Jernigan (6-3, 296), No. 57 -- OL Jeremiah Wright (6-5, 340), No. 76 -- WR J.J. Evans (6-3, 210), No. 81 -- TE Brandon Frazier (6-7, 270), No. 87 -- TE JJ Pegues (6-2, 300), No. 89 -- DE Daniel Foster-Allen (6-4, 250), No. 90 -- QB Grant Loy (6-5, 230), No. 14; grad transfer/redshirt senior -- DB Marco Domio (6-1, 180), No. 22; JUCO transfer/junior -- DT Dre Butler (6-5, 304), No. 49; JUCO transfer/sophomore -- OL Brenden Coffey (6-5, 279), No. 55; JUCO transfer/junior -- OL Brandon Council (6-4, 325), No. 71; grad transfer/redshirt junior -- OL Killian Zierer (6-7, 294), No. 77; JUCO transfer/junior -- DT Marquis Burks (6-3, 312), No. 92; JUCO transfer/junior Tom Green is an Auburn beat reporter for Alabama Media Group.

  6. All the non-conference games SEC canceled on Thursday By Creg Stephenson | 5-7 minutes The SEC’s announcement Thursday that it would play only conference games in 2020 resulted in the cancelation of 56 non-conference games, four for each school. Not all non-conference games are created equal, of course. Some of them were games you circled on your calendar every year, others you might not have even known your team was playing until game week. For your convenience, we’ve broken down the “called-off” SEC games of 2020 into six categories. Here’s a look: The blood rivalries (4) Florida at Florida State, Nov. 28 Georgia Tech at Georgia, Nov. 28 Kentucky at Louisville, Nov. 28 South Carolina at Clemson, Nov. 28 These are the games that hurt the most, and involve the most history. South Carolina and Clemson have played every year since 1909, even through two World Wars. Georgia and Georgia Tech have faced off annually since 1924, though there’s some dispute over whether the games during World War II should have counted, given that the Bulldogs were fielding a glorified club team. Florida and Florida State have played “only” since 1958, but the rivalry still dates to the time of black & white TV. Kentucky and Louisville started playing again in 1994 after a 70-year break, but you’ve still got a quarter century of history in the “Governor’s Cup” game. The interesting inter-sectional games (7) Arkansas at Notre Dame, Sept. 12 Texas at LSU, Sept. 12 Mississippi State at North Carolina State, Sept. 12 Tennessee at Oklahoma, Sept. 12 Vanderbilt at Kansas State, Sept. 19 Colorado at Texas A&M, Sept. 19 Missouri at BYU, Oct. 10 Arkansas at Notre Dame was technically already canceled, after the ACC announced it was playing a “10 + 1” schedule with one non-conference game. The Fighting Irish are more likely to try to save their annual game with Navy, which dates back to the 1920s. The real loss here, however, is Texas at LSU. The Tigers’ 45-38 victory in Austin in 2019 was one of the games of the year, and helped launch Joe Burrow’s Heisman campaign. The marquee neutral-site matchups (5) Alabama vs. USC (in Arlington, Texas), Sept. 5 Ole Miss vs. Baylor (in Houston), Sept. 5 Georgia vs. Virginia (in Atlanta), Sept. 7 Auburn vs. North Carolina (in Atlanta), Sept. 12 LSU vs. Rice (in Houston), Sept. 19 Again, a couple of these — notably Alabama-USC — had been canceled already due to other conferences doing away with non-league games before the SEC did. And LSU-Rice is not exactly “marquee,” but that game didn’t really fit into any of the other categories. Neutral-site games are quickly becoming a thing of the past as Power 5 teams start to schedule non-conference home-and-homes, but they were a big thing in their time. That Auburn-North Carolina game in particular would have been must-watch TV. The Group of 5 ‘trap’ games (10) Nevada at Arkansas, Sept. 5 Charlotte at Tennessee, Sept. 5 Southern Miss at Auburn, Sept. 26 Tulane at Mississippi State, Sept. 26 Troy at Tennessee, Sept. 26 Fresno State at Texas A&M, Sept. 26 Colorado State at Vanderbilt, Sept. 26 Louisiana at Missouri, Nov. 21 Louisiana Tech at Vanderbilt, Nov. 21 Georgia Southern at Ole Miss, Nov. 21 We’ve seen teams from the Sun Belt and Conference USA wreck many an SEC Saturday in recent years, but we won’t get that in 2020. In particularly, those three games on Nov. 21 all had the potential to make memes out of sad SEC fans. The G5/independent guarantee games (16) Eastern Michigan at Kentucky, Sept. 5 UT-San Antonio at LSU, Sept. 5 New Mexico at Mississippi State, Sept. 5 Coastal Carolina at South Carolina, Sept. 5 Georgia State at Alabama, Sept. 12 East Carolina at South Carolina, Sept. 12 North Texas at Texas A&M, Sept. 12 Kent State at Kentucky, Sept. 19 South Alabama at Florida, Sept. 19 New Mexico State at Florida, Sept. 26 Kent State at Alabama, Sept. 26 Louisiana-Monroe at Georgia, Sept. 26 Eastern Michigan at Missouri, Sept. 26 Middle Tennessee State at Ole Miss, Oct. 24 UMass at Auburn, Nov. 14 Louisiana-Monroe at Arkansas, Nov. 21 Not as much potential for upsets with this group, but they’re a “necessary evil” for both sides. SEC teams get what is probably an easy win along with a guaranteed seventh home game, while the G5 schools get a massive payday. Lots of revenue lost on both sides here. So long, Cupcake Saturday(s) (14) Alcorn State at Auburn, Sept. 5 Eastern Washington at Florida, Sept. 5 Central Arkansas at Missouri, Sept. 5 Abilene Christian at Texas A&M, Sept. 5 Mercer at Vanderbilt, Sept. 5 East Tennessee State at Georgia, Sept. 12 Southeast Missouri State at Ole Miss, Sept. 12 Furman at Tennessee, Sept. 19 Nicholls State at LSU, Oct. 3 Charleston Southern at Arkansas, Oct. 3 Eastern Illinois at Kentucky, Oct. 10 UT Martin at Alabama, Nov. 21 Alabama A&M at Mississippi State, Nov. 21 Wofford at South Carolina, Nov. 21 These games were largely clustered at the beginning and at the end of schedules, and no one but super fans and/or sadists really enjoys watching them. They’re a nice payday for FCS programs (and their players get to perform in a big-time environment), and almost always* an easy win for the SEC school. * — Yes, we know The Citadel beat South Carolina that time. Georgia Southern also beat Florida a few years ago, but soon after moved up to the FBS. Note to readers: if you purchase something through one of our affiliate links we may earn a commission.
  7. SEC Is this the year we'll see the SEC East finally surpass the SEC West? Connor O'Gara | 4 days ago Dare I say, this might finally be the year. That is, the year the SEC East finally surpasses the SEC West. I know, I know, I know. You’ve heard that before only to watch that premise get thrown away at the hands of a blowout loss in the SEC Championship. That’s the place where the West won 10 of the past 11 years, and go figure that the 1 year in which an East team did win the division (2017 Georgia), it lost to a West team (Alabama) in the College Football Playoff National Championship. A division with 1 conference title since the Tim Tebow era has been, as you already know, woefully short on almost a yearly basis. Only 2 of those 10 losses were by single digits. Besides the 1 SEC winner from the East, the numbers from 2009-19 are, um, not great for the East against the West: 59-107 (.355) 2 East teams with winning records vs. West (Georgia at 16-9 and Mizzou at 9-7) But 5 of those Mizzou wins came vs. Arkansas Kentucky, South Carolina, Tennessee and Vandy haven’t won 1/3 of West games East had winning record vs. West in only 1 of those 11 seasons (a 9-5 mark in 2018) Yikes. During that stretch, 3 West programs won multiple SEC Championships (Alabama, Auburn and LSU). Better yet, 3 West programs played in multiple national championships, and all of them took home at least 1 title. So why then, with that lopsided history in mind, would this be the year that the power shifts? Well, it’s not as simple as “Joe Burrow and Tua Tagovailoa aren’t there anymore.” Those guys didn’t contribute to the 8 consecutive West wins from 2009-16. They did, however, play at an elite level for teams that were historically dominant each of the past 2 seasons (don’t forget how good Alabama was up until the 2018 title game). It’s not that their teams are expected to fall off the face of the earth. It’s that their teams aren’t expected to be heads and shoulders above the contenders from the East. Earlier this offseason, I wrote about why this was going to be as intriguing as a preseason discussion about SEC title contenders as any in recent memory. It’s Alabama and LSU from the West, and it’s Florida and Georgia from the East. Sure, there could be some who get cute and put Texas A&M in that discussion (I’m in wait-and-see mode for a program with 1 top-15 finish in the 21st century). But for the most part, those 4 teams were expected to have the vast majority of the preseason buzz to win the SEC in 2020. It’s too bad we didn’t have an SEC Media Days because we would have gotten some insight as to just how narrow the debate was between those 4 teams. While I believe the Alabama-LSU disparity would have been greater than the Florida-Georgia disparity, let’s think about this for the Crimson Tide. Alabama just lost its best quarterback ever. It also just lost multiple regular-season games for the first time in 9 years, though I’d argue injuries played a significant part in that. At the very least, Alabama is mortal. The whole “no losses to an East team since 2010” thing is still there, but Alabama missed the conference title game 4 times during that stretch because of an intra-division loss. This year, Georgia has the best chance to finally end Alabama’s dominance against the East. Could a team loaded with 5-star players in the front 7 with a bunch of production returning from the No. 1 defense in America do something that no East team has done in a decade? I’d certainly say those odds look better now than they have at most points during this run of West dominance. Speaking of Georgia, the Dawgs are obviously facing plenty of unknowns on the offensive side of the ball with new coordinator Todd Monken and new quarterback Jamie Newman/JT Daniels. But they are obviously coming off their 3rd consecutive New Year’s 6 Bowl berth. Florida, on the other hand, is coming off of its 2nd New Year’s 6 Bowl berth. When was the last time that the East entered a season with multiple teams riding a streak of consecutive New Year’s 6/BCS Bowl berths? Um, that’s a trick question. This is the 1st time that’s happened. Let me repeat that because I fear you glossed over that important note. This is the 1st time in the BCS/Playoff era that the East has multiple teams riding streaks of consecutive New Year’s 6/BCS Bowl berths. To me, that’s more relevant than some preseason ranking. But then again, even the preseason rankings could be on the East’s side this year. Since the West’s dominance began in 2009, there have been 7 instances (2011-17) in which the East had exactly 3 teams ranked in the AP Top 25 to start the year. All signs point to the SEC having at least 3 East teams start in the AP Top 25 (Florida, Georgia and Tennessee) though Kentucky is the possible wild card that could give the East a 4th ranked team. For what it’s worth, Phil Steele has Kentucky at No. 21 in his preseason rankings. There’s at least a chance that for the first time since the stretch began, the East has 4 top-25 teams to start the year. Even if it doesn’t, Florida and Georgia appear to be locks to start in the top 10. How many times did the East start with multiple top-10 teams during that stretch from 2011-17 when it had 3 ranked teams to start the year? Twice. It was 2012 and 2013. In other words, it has been at least 7 years since the SEC has been set up with this many potential contenders. Granted, in 2012 the East representative (Georgia) ran into an Alabama team in the midst of its 3rd title in 4 years, and it was a red-zone conversion away from taking down the playing for a national title against Notre Dame. And in 2013, well, the East representative (Mizzou) was overmatched against an Auburn team with 9 lives. It probably wouldn’t have stood much of a chance against Alabama had the Kick-6 not happened, either. This could be another year like that wild 2013 season. Or it could be different for once. Perhaps a new decade will bring a changing of the guard. Maybe instead of the Alabama-LSU game or the Iron Bowl essentially deciding the SEC, it’ll be Florida-Georgia or Georgia-Tennessee. The East finally has 4 coaches who elevated the floors of their respective programs. That would match the West. That’s the key to all of this. That was always the only way the power was ever going to shift. The inability for Florida and Tennessee to find the right coach throughout most of the 2010s was at the root of this. Now, Jeremy Pruitt and Dan Mullen can be at the beginning of a new streak. And really, you could point to positives in each of the past 3 seasons for the East. In 2017, Georgia won the SEC. In 2018, the East had a winning record vs. the West (9-5). In 2019, the East went 7-7 vs. the West and it finished with multiple top-6 teams for the first time since 2013. If you combined 2018 and 2019, the East actually went 16-12 vs. the West and had just as many top-15 finishers (5). Of course, this is all about getting the last laugh. Even including that 2017 season with Georgia winning the SEC but falling to Alabama in the title game, it’s been since Tebow’s junior season that the East truly got the last laugh on the West. Dare I say, the pieces are in place for the chuckles to shift. Finally.
  8. By Mike Rodak | Days after delaying the start of its football schedule to Sept. 26, the SEC has also pushed back the start of fall practice. The league’s new date for teams to begin practice is Aug. 17, it announced Tuesday. Practice had been scheduled to begin Friday, which was the traditional start date of fall camp 29 days before what had been most schools’ scheduled season openers Sept. 5. As part of the SEC’s revised rules for this year, teams can hold a maximum of 25 practices over a 40-day period leading up to the start of the 10-game conference-only schedule Sept. 26. There must be two days off each week and a maximum of 20 hours of countable activities per week. Football players have been back on campuses since last month participating in weight training, meetings and walk-through practices.
  9. tell the whole truth. trump gassed his own people at a peaceful and lawful protest just to wave a bible. that is fact and you misled folks with your statement. he gassed people observing the law. one military cat even siad the next day he was ashamed as they had been misled about the protesters. eat a cookie. and you need no drugs 78 because you live in some kind of fantasy world. but i would love to see your link on that.
  10. are you saying lawful protesters do not have a right to protest mikey? and are you one of the guys that said if protesters were blocking the road you would just run over them? two questions mikey. i hope you answer them. i think you are better than that but i also thought this country is better than trump too.
  11. i want a link which is my right on this board. you are no better than the rest of us. cough it up. that is part of the rules............
  12. link to obama separating families? yes he started the cages. several on this very board said trump one upped obama. so lets see what ya got.
  13. football is a team sport. they should have done better with joey. i wish the best for joey and i hope he lights it up. one thing tho....if joey excels then the gus haters will be out in force. but i have seen championship teams with great backup QB's. if bo heaven forbid ever got hurt we could have had a high quality backup. this keeps lurking in the back of my mind.
