  1. We have to root for Bama, don’t we?

    Well, not literally in my case πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  2. We have to root for Bama, don’t we?

    I can't. I just can't. I would rather run through hell with gasoline underwear.
  3. I will definitely let you guys know. This has been in the works for quite a while, so Jake isn't the driving reason, but I sure am glad he is raising awareness and the understanding that these students are just like everyone else and are capable of so much! I also want everyone to know how hard Jake has worked for these opportunities. He is actually a member of the team. He did not just walk on the field for one night and get handed the football for show. He participates in every practice, doing all the drills, lifting weights, and running stadiums. He also works out extra at the YMCA. I have seen him drenched in sweat from head to toe from practice, and never once has he complained. One day, after a particularly tough practice, my dad said "Jake, is it too hard? Do you want to quit?" Jake responded, "I will never quit." I can't wait to see what he accomplishes in college and beyond. I'm so proud.
  4. Thank you, everyone! Today was absolutely incredible. Jake was grinning ear to ear when we went back and met him and my parents after the game. I asked him what he would do if AU/Clemson end up in a rematch in the playoffs and he simply answered, "WAR EAGLE!" Mission accomplished! On a side note, everyone was talking about Auburn's new program for students like Jake. It sounds like that announcement is imminent! Coach Pearl even asked Jake if he was interested in being the team manager for the basketball team!!!! These are a few of the best pictures from the game.
  5. I don't know where you are located, but Jacksonville State also has a program called "On to JSU "
  6. My brother, Jake Pratt, is the football player from Vestavia Hills with Down Syndrome. My last post about him is in the Non-AU Sports forum on this site. He scored a TD a few weeks ago and it blew up on the Internet. He was invited as a recruit by Clemson to the Clemson/AU game. Now, Auburn has reached out and invited him to the Ole Miss game Saturday! He will have sideline passes before the game and all that. He is so excited! My whole family is going and I'm hoping we can win him back to the good side lol. He loves Auburn, Bama (gag me), and Clemson, but Cam Newton is his favorite player of all time. On a side note, we are hearing that Auburn is very close to launching its program similar to Clemson Life. I hope that happens and Auburn becomes an option for him for his college experience! I just wanted to share the great news. If you see Jake at the game Saturday, please say hi and give him a big WAR EAGLE! You can check out my twitter: amy_lissa if you are interested in seeing more about Jake's story. Here is a great video summing up what has happened so far:

    To think I posted something saying I was worried that JF3 and Woody were both showing signs of wanting to transfer and got blasted by some for it πŸ™„
  8. ***Auburn vs. Mercer -- Game Thread***

    I don't care if we score 35. I won't feel better. We look like crap. Against Mercer.
  9. ***Auburn vs. Mercer -- Game Thread***

    You're an optimist πŸ˜‚
  10. ***Auburn vs. Mercer -- Game Thread***

    THIS. People blaming players are comical. There is a trend here in player development at virtually ALL areas.
  11. This is slightly off topic, but I was hoping y'all wouldn't mind. My brother, Jake, is an 18 year old senior at Vestavia Hills High School. He is on the football team, and he also happens to have Down Syndrome. 2 weeks ago, I posted a video to my twitter of Jake scoring a TD in the VHHS/Briarwood preseason game and it went unexpectedly viral. It was crazy! It was on ESPN, and was quote tweeted by Kirk Herbstreit, Larry Fitzgerald, Brian Billick, among others! Here is the full video: Jake is a HUGE college football fan, and likes Auburn, Bama, and Clemson (in that order.) Dabo and Clemson heard about my brother and INVITED HIM TO THE GAME AS A "RECRUIT." Jake got to meet the players, tour the facilities, and hang out on the sidelines. He even had this personal exchange with Dabo: Jake plans on applying to Clemson Life, which is a special college program for students with intellectual disabilities. According to the rumor mill, Auburn has a similar program in the works! I am an Auburn girl through and through, but I can no longer hate on Dabo or Clemson. If we were gonna lose, I'm glad it was to such a class act. I am one proud sister and I just wanted to share the story with some of my AU family. My twitter handle is amy_lissa if you guys wanna see more on Jake! Thanks for reading and WAR EAGLE!!!
  12. Malzahn's Presser (merged Threads)

    I think this is unfair. KP is a great back, I felt like it was obvious he was not at 100% last night. He looked very tentative when trying to make cuts. You could tell there was an issue.
  13. ***FINAL: Auburn 6 Clemson 14***

    Make Steele interim head coach. Promote Borges to interim OC. See what shakes out. Immediately. That's my vote. If that doesn't work out, throw the entire bank at Franklin and Dabo (pipe dream) and see if one will bite. Franklin might listen if money was really talking.
  14. Yeah where the heck is NCM?
  15. Turnovers turnovers turnovers 😭
