  1. It took me a few days to be able to read the comments here. It's so emotional for so many of us AU fans. I was fortunate to be at AU from '83-'87 which were truly glory days in AU football. Like others have said, Dye laid the foundation in the 80's for being the national competitor that today we expect to be every year. Coach Dye will always be the face of AU football for me. He was often on the local ESPN radio station in my city and I loved his commentary and his humor. He is an AU legend and loved by so many of us and we'll miss him forever. RIP, Coach Dye.
  2. I know, right? I haven´t seen Chris in years and I didn´t know about the guitar Leon gave him. I sure hope he holds on to it, that instrument is priceless. I really regret never having the chance to see Leon play live.
  3. A friend and former employee of mine was the touring guitarist for Leon Russell for years. He lives in Huntsville now, great guitarist. Leon is one of the most underrated musicians ever. Alabamian blues- and Southern soul-man Chris Simmons shares his story
  4. Good point-- and even the word ¨bathroom¨ (concrete wall) is used quite loosely when used to refer to the Supper Club´s facilities. 😎
  5. Good news! I am safe from Corona-Virus, are you? 🤣
  6. What makes you so sure they didn´t hire me? 😜
  7. The FBI has recruited at Auburn for years, even back in my days during the 80s. I even interviewed with them my senior year. True story. 🤗
  8. Weed should be unregulated, untaxed, and legal. It has medicinal uses. 🤩
  9. Agree 100%! AU Police was never anything other than a money-making operation designed to suck even more money off the students & University community. My daughter goes to UAH and they still have campus cops and it´s just as bad as it used to be at Auburn... we got a $50 ticket there the other day for parking in the VISITORS section for half an hour to check on her Financial Aid.
  10. There ya go, not all progress is bad! 😉
  11. From what I know of the campus, it has become more bike-friendly over the years with bike lanes and such, and that´s a good thing. Back in the 80´s, a lot of people rode bikes but, as I recall, you were taking your life in your own hands riding through traffic. I loved riding my bike to class, wish I had lived closer to have done it more when I was there.
  12. Absolutely, it´s character-building, although I don´t know if either you or I would have seen it that way back in those days. AU and other universities have become big business and tuition and expenses have gone up so much I wonder if a kid like me, someone who paid his own way through school with military service and lots of part-time jobs, could make it in the current environment. I wonder if that is even possible these days?
  13. I remember Mag Deli, I think, was it close to CDV? Can´t say that I ever ate there but I think they had pizzas, right? I worked the breakfast shift at War Eagle Cafeteria for a spell so that was my singular exposure to AU Food Service! Oh, those boxes of macaroni and cheese. That´s was the end-of-the-month, waiting for payday, scrape up your change, meal. And if you had enough change, add some vienna sausage or hot dogs. I ate it so much I can´t even stand the smell of it now. I guess it´s the smell of being a poor student. 😄
  14. Me too! And all this talk about lunchroom food brings back some funny college memories... When my buddy/roommate and I went to AU it was really our first time away from home, so neither of us had any clue of how to cook, especially on the ridiculously thin food budget we had to buy groceries with. Our main point-of-reference was lunchroom food. So most of our cooking consisted of recreating the lunchroom favorites we had grown up with, which meant a steady diet of Beans-n-Franks w/ cornbread, Western Beans with Beef, Chili Con Carne, and Breakfast for Dinner! LOL! Along with Hamburger or
  15. My wife took this one of Montreal´s Gay Village on our recent trip. I had to talk her into going there, she didn´t want to go because she thought it was going to be a den of debauchery-- it´s actually just the artsy section of the city and everybody goes there.
