  1. I guess we’ll see about the season. Two of my daughters are at schools with a big football presence. Both have gone to totally on-line classes (for the start of the academic year at least). I love football as much as anyone and understand the financial impact if there is no season. I have no idea how you can rationalize any kind of sports with athletes in close proximity, even with limited or no crowds, if we are saying the environment is so unsafe that classes can’t meet in person. Not arguing for or against (although I do have my personal bias) but not sure how you can have one but not the other. It seems completely contradictory to me. JMTC.....

    Imagine you’re sitting in 100 degree weather, decked out in Auburn gear, it smells like corn dogs, you’re surround by drunk frat boys screaming “TIGER BAIT!” at you as you walk to your seat. The first quarter opens up and Jarrett Stidham is dicing em up, he gets to the 50 yard line and you see Will Hastings line up in the slot with Delpit covering him... you know what’s coming. Hastings exposes Delpit with a post route and he scores! You’re in everyone of those lame purple and gold frat boys’ faces. You go up 20-0 a little after. But LSU fights back. Surely Gus sees he can score and is gonna keep his foot on the gas right? Surely we’re gonna keep scoring in the second half right? 

    That’s when I realized that Gus had lost that fire. And then we blew it. I cried. 

    Y’all just keep having to bring up that damn game.....I’ve been around some great Auburn wins and some terrible Auburn losses but that game......that is where Gus lost me completely for life. I was pretty jaded before that with Gus but that game left me convinced of our being cemented in mediocrity as long as Gus was at the helm. That’s why the end of that year didn’t scar me, I was already too far gone

    I remember Ben was planning to go to law school in turdville after the nfl.  Does anyone know if he went through with that. I think he was very intelligent. Except for going to Tuscaloosa. Lol

    I hate Bama as much as anybody but it’s an excellent law school that is highly respected. Tough to get in as well. I know you’re kidding (I think).....

  4. Nathan, we continue to pray for you and your family here at my house. Your attitude is such an inspiration to me and so humbling. If Jeremiah 29:11 applies to anyone here I know that it is you. Keep fighting the good fight brother.

    This was not an easy decision. Went with Brent and Lawyer.

    I second this. Both Tillman and Weygand underrated because we just didn’t throw the ball enough for the them to get big numbers. I believe it was after an FSU game they quoted a DB about Weygand: “That is one fast white dude”, lol. Tillman gets the nod because he is part of the greatest call of Jim Fyffe’s illustrious career(AU-Ga Tech,  1987:”Tillman, Tillman,Tillman!!!!”)

    If it's the blood test, then they have already had the virus (whether they knew it or not), have the antibodies in their system and are good to go without worries for the future.

    Unfortunately, this is not entirely correct. The antibody tests have not had the specificity for SARS-CoV2 necessary to imply immunity to the “COVID” virus from a positive antibody test. A conversation worth reading with Mike Saag, a well-known and respected ID doctor at UAB:

    To this day, I cringe watching Robenson Therezie running so close to Davis as he closes in on the end zone. I know Davis scores, but I can’t help imagining Therezie bumping into Davis and tripping him up before he crossed the goal line.

    I’m glad I’m not the only one....still makes me laugh out loud and brings tears to my eyes every time I watch it

  9. Two things watching that: 1) Classic Tubershell- after the first 10 minutes I thought we were going to hang “half a hundred” on them (as Switzer used to say).... and we should have 2)damn I miss having a guy on the edge like we had in Groves and The Predator. Fun to rewatch although I felt sorry for Croyle that day; his line was absolutely atrocious

  10. Couldn’t be there but watched every second of it on TV. Damn, watching the play calling and seeing Andy Fuller catch about 100 passes that day brings a tear to my eye. Who knew you could utilize a TE and exploit the middle of the field? Tot had many flaws but that sonofagun could coach on game day....

    Sonny Smith signed Mike Jones from Oak Hill in early 80's. He went to Central of Phenix City, some things happened and he transferred to Oak Hill for one year. I believe he was a high school All American that one year

    He was a damn good player on those mid-80s teams, including the Elite 8 team the lost to Louisville, I believe

    Got to try 3 of the Michael Jordan tequilas. Cincoro. All are fantastic. $69.99-$129.99(blanco to anejo). I believe an extra anejo exists for the cool price of $1600. 

    Nice. I love a good anejo sipped neat. I love extra anejo but that’s a little spendy for me
