  1. I don't think that complaining about the recruiting class has nearly the negative effect as the constant poor mouthing about the coaching staff (i.e. Gus) and the predictions that they will be fired next year and so on and so on. Many of the "insiders" and mods on this board are the most guilty of this.
  2. I refer to uat as updykes for one simple reason. It's insulting and derogatory and they don't like it. I'm pretty sure that's why you refer to them as uat. I can understand the sentiment of not wanting to give Harvey any attention, but for me, as long as it is negative and is a constant reminder of the character of their fans, I'm good with it. I, myself, try to never address them by their proper name. Some popular substitutes include uat, gumps, bammers, mullets, that team on the other side of the state, etc. On a side note, I wish someone would explain what "spuat" stands for so I can determine whether or not I want to use that. However, the term that currently seems to be the most insulting is "updykes". I mean, it even sounds bad without the relevant backstory. I hope you can accept this reasoning and possibly even embrace it yourself.
  3. Ok this is the last post, lol. I ain't mad or nothing. Just didn't have any more to add. And I needed to at least pretend to be working for a little bit.
  4. Last post on this. I promise I'm not just trying to argue and I don't think you are either. Yes, when you say stars matter, you are talking about overall team rankings. I understand and agree. But, by default, that means individual rankings have to count for something. I also understand the difference in HB style between FB or TE. IF Shenker was a true TE then it would make more sense. However, what I'm seeing is two guys destined to be blockers. Shenker is an inch taller. Lasater is presumably a good bit faster. Other than that, I don't see the difference. Of course the coaches have every right to just like one more than the other. I'm just saying I don't understand. Thanks. I'll hang up and listen.
  5. I fully understand that rankings are not the be all, end all of the story. However, as you have said many times before, stars DO matter. And we seemed to think he was a good fit, otherwise, just a few days ago. Not trying to argue. If he was a true TE then I would just say that we were heading in a different direction. But since it was stated that he was going to be used as a blocker, then I don't understand the trade off.
  6. Well, I must admit, I cannot argue with that logic, lol.
  7. I agree. And to add to, or further clarify, my previous post, if Joey Is the starting QB then that would leave a kid, who is a very good QB himself, standing on the sidelines quite possibly with no scholarship offers.
  8. IMO, a high school coach has an obligation to do whatever he can, legally of course, to help his kids get to the next level. Joey Gatewood's coach has a starting QB who is a legit D-2 prospect with some D-1 interest. His BEST QB has offers from every program in the country despite the fact that he isn't even playing QB. From this perspective, I think the coach is doing the right thing. Plus, his starting QB is still better than most high school QBs and he has a decent TE/WR also.
  9. Even in Auburn we only outnumber them on campus. 5 minutes away, not so sure.
  10. I don't quite understand taking the #94 TE over the #2 FB when you make it clear that you only want the TE for blocking purposes.
  11. There is no town in this entire state that can be considered an AU town for recruiting. Gumps outnumber us at least 2 to 1 anywhere you go. Doesn't matter if it's 5 hours from campus or 5 minutes
  12. They do if the old, creepy beer drinker is also the Bagman
  13. Maybe Tubs was in Auburn to give his old buddy Noel a reference (no I don't really believe this). WDE, can Mazzone actually be considered a BBQ gang member since Tubs fired him in '01?
  14. Tommy does still have a home on Lake Martin. Tucker Tuberville just recently moved back to the area, I assume staying at the lake house. Would not be surprised to see Tucker as a grad assistant soon.
