    Why couldn't UA have hired this guy? Saban's been there over a decade!

    SEC Coach Blasts Malzahn

    That's a made-up quote. Any sportswriter could come up with that. Gotta sell those magazines somehow. Seriously, who buys those glossy pre-season magazines anymore?

    Baptisms at the Athletics Complex

    Now that you mention it, I think the correct spelling is Dobie. I was there from 95-97. Transferred in and graduated with a degree in Zoology. I guess smoking in the classroom was out by the time I was there. I do remember that he referred to North America as the New World and would often go off on rants about how HIV was going to develop into a "super virus" and never be stopped. He was quite entertaining. Don't think I missed a single day of class.

    Baptisms at the Athletics Complex

    When I took Evolution and Systematics, I had Dr. Dolby. His first statement on the first day of class was that God had no place in that classroom and we should leave Him at the door. Guess that he and Dr. Folkerts had some different views! I have no problem with the baptisms at the athletic complex. Maybe the players asked to be baptized there? If they did, should they be told no?

    XFL making comeback

    I imagine Bama will opt to stay in the SEC, but they may have to increase their wages with this new competition.

    XFL making comeback

    If I remember correctly, the original XFL brought in girls from local strip clubs to be the cheerleaders...bet that gets scratched this go round. If the XFL does just one simple thing and make a catch a catch, and not get into the convoluted mess the NFL has created, that would be a great improvement over the NFL.

    Teammates: Davis made decision to sit out

    I agree that in the future we will see star players opt out of games against lesser opponents in the regular season. They will deem these games meaningless just as they deem bowl games meaningless and what's the point of playing in a meaningless game where the risk of injury exists? But once you start down the road of meaningless games, and keep in mind we are talking about meaningless to the player not the fan, where does it end? I believe it will diminish the game and fans and players alike will be disappointed.

    I can't believe any AU coach, player, or fan sees any game as meaningless and therefore can be overlooked. But if that's where the game is headed, then there's a bumpy road ahead and I agree that we fans might not be happy where that road leads. Maybe no bowls games outside the playoffs if the money dries up from lack of fan enthusiasm?

    Correct, I am not serious in that I believe JS, or any player for that matter, would ever do this. Several posters had stated they are OK with CDs decision because the Peach Bowl was not for a championship and therefore did not matter. I presented a different scenario (albeit an extreme one) in which a star player did not play in a game where AU had no conference or national championship aspirations and asked if they would be OK if the player skipped the game. Of course, we would all be upset with this decision as the Iron Bowl is extremely important to us as fans and players. My point was to show that the games we deem important as fans may not match the games a player deems important. The AU fans who attended the Peach Bowl would likely claim the Peach Bowl was an important game, whereas CD did not feel that way. You mentioned lesser teams than Alabama in the regular season. Would we as fans be OK with star players deciding which regular season games they will and won't participate in due to the risk of injury? This isn't happening now, but what's to prevent it from happening in the future? If coaches allow it in the bowl games then why not in the regular season?

    Yeah, I get the fact that it's a far-fetched scenario, but if you had told me 20 years ago that players would ship bowl games in the future, I would have thought you were crazy. .

    If CD did in fact skip the Peach Bowl to reduce risk of injury, then I find it disappointing and disagree with his decision. For those ok with his decision, would you also be ok with the following decision? 2018 season...AU enters Iron Bowl week 9-2 with 2 really close conference loses...Alabama is 11-0...AU has as good a chance as anyone to beat them but no chance at a conference or national championship...JS has had a stellar season at quarterback and is garnering All-American accolades and a high draft grade. Two days before the Iron Bowl he announces he's not playing as he wishes to protect his NFL career. I have a feeling that we as fans would be going out of our minds and feeling betrayed because of this decision. But, how would JS's decision differ from CD's decision? After all there are no conference or national championships to be won by Auburn and why risk injury this close to the draft. Sounds as if his teammates weren't happy with his decision and I don't blame them.

    Guys I'm sorry

    My first child was born in 2009 and AU did pretty good the next season. We had our second child in 2012 and then did AU did well again the following season. The good and bad news for AU football is that my wife is pregnant again. This year is going to stink, but watch out for the 2017 season!!
