    Flag on the field: No wimpy predictions. 15 yards and you sit out next play.
  3. Mark My Word 2017

    Well, the Touchdown Auburn Bowl has been started, and @WarTim is contemplating The Nip. It's time for Mark My Word, a thread I like to start for those crazy and insane predictions. Most of the rules below are copy/pasted from earlier years, but read over them to refresh yourself, there are penalties associated. College football is getting close and we're all getting excited. There's lots of prognostications by the sportscasters and fellow board members, but you've got a feeling about a team, a coach, or a player. Tell us about it. Make your boldest college football related prediction. It cannot be a wimpy prediction that you know will likely come true (e.g. "Auburn Beats Georgia Southern!") or one that many people believe anyway, but a prediction that almost no one else but you expects to happen. Maybe something that you have a gut feeling about, something that may defy logical thinking. It's got to be College Football related and could concern game outcomes, coach issues, final schedules, etc. You can also make AUFamily related predictions (regarding a member, The Nip, Touchdown Auburn Bowl, etc.). After the season, we can revive this thread and see how our predictions turned out. I'm not going to bring up the bold predictions I made last year, or even the year before; they didn't turn out so well . But new folks can look back in the archives for the other Mark My Word threads if you want to get an idea of how this works: Mark My Word 2016 Mark My Word 2015 Mark My Word 2014 Mark My Word 2013 Mark My Word 2012 Mark My Word 2011 Mark My Word 2010 Mark My Word 2009 Mark My Word 2008 Mark My Word 2007 Mark My Word 2006 Mark My Word 2005 In any case, here are the rules: No wimpy predictions. Penalty for a wimpy prediction: 15 yards and you sit out next play. No flaming on the thread. If you don't agree with someone's Mark My Word prediction and want to tell them how crazy they are, take it to another thread. This is just for the bold predictions. Penalty for flaming on the thread: 10 yards from the spot of the foul and loss of down. * One exception: you may flame someone who makes a wimpy prediction. Because they deserve it. Judgement call by the referee. Most importantly: you must begin each prediction with "Mark My Word". Because you are sure of it. (And it's in the spirit of the thread.) 1st infraction is a sideline warning, 2nd infraction 15 yards. You don't necessarily have to explain why you believe the way you do, but if you want to elaborate, go ahead. No edits once the season begins - although I doubt people would change their predictions to match the season, just want to make it clear. I'll get this started: Mark my word: Wisconsin makes it to the playoffs this year. That's right, Wisconsin. Mark my word: Alabama loses two or more games (and fans blame the OC; Saban is safe). Mark my word: I win the Touchdown Auburn Bowl this year. Alright - let's hear those insane predictions!

    I don't find kicking a coconut that interesting...
  6. Auburn number 9 in school spirit

    According to the Princeton Review, Auburn is the only SEC school to make the top twenty on its rankings of schools with the most school spirit. Here's the al.com article, the link to the Princeton Review wants you to sign up. The top 20 rankings are: Syracuse University West Virginia University University of Southern California Gonzaga University Clemson University Pennsylvania State University Kansas State University University of Oklahoma Auburn University Xavier University University of Kansas Marquette University University of Iowa United States Air Force Academy Florida State University University of Wisconsin at Madison University of Arizona University of Nebraska at Lincoln University of Connecticut University of Louisville

    For the new folks, this is something I like to do every year. Not as popular as The Nip, but fun for me at least. Most of the rules below are copy/pasted from earlier years, but read over them to refresh yourself, there are penalties associated. So college football is getting close and we're all getting excited. There's lots of prognostications by the sportscasters and fellow board members, but you've got a feeling about a team, a coach, or a player. Tell us about it. Make your boldest college football related prediction. It cannot be a wimpy prediction that you know will likely come true (e.g. "Auburn Beats Arkansas State!") or one that many people believe anyway, but a prediction that almost no one else but you expects to happen. Maybe something that you have a gut feeling about, something that may defy logical thinking. It's got to be College Football related and could concern game outcomes, coach issues, final schedules, etc. You can also make AUFamily related predictions (regarding a member, The Nip, Touchdown Auburn Bowl, etc.). After the season, we can revive this thread and see how our predictions turned out. I'm not going to bring up the bold predictions I made last year, or even the year before; they didn't turn out so well .

No edits once the season begins - although I doubt people would change their predictions to match the season, just want to make it clear. I'll get this started: Mark My Word: Alabama loses to USC Mark My Word: Auburn defeats Florida in the SEC Championship game with Sean White as the quarterback Mark My Word: I will become the first repeat Touchdown Auburn Bowl winner. You heard me. Chalk it up now.
  9. All things Tashawn Manning (Merged)

    Thanks for the well wishes @McLoofus, @kingfish, @warhogone. As I said, mine should be treatable, a couple of surgeries plus low doses of radiation. Tashawn went through more than I will have to; he's a very brave young man. I hope he gets his strength back and competes for playing time.
  10. All things Tashawn Manning (Merged)

    This is good to hear. As a person that just recently received a cancer diagnosis (it's treatable), I'm glad to see our coaches standing behind these guys.
  11. JJ starter.

    Game's not over yet, and it hasn't been perfect, but I'm heating the pan for my crow.
  12. Mark My Word 2015

    Oh, there are flags all over the field right now. But it doesn't matter because it's at the end of regulation. I'll take it to the commissioner, but for me it's just cool to see my thread back on the front page

    Ok, college football is getting close and we're all getting excited. There's lots of prognostications by the sportscasters and fellow board members, but you've got a feeling about a team, a coach, or a player. Tell us about it. Make your boldest college football related prediction. It cannot be a wimpy prediction that you know will likely come true (e.g. "Auburn Beats Jacksonville State!") or one that many people believe anyway, but a prediction that almost no one else but you expects to happen.

  14. Mark My Word 2014

    Due to my job and family life, I don't get to post as much as I used to, but I will make time for this. Thank you AU Tytrocious for the PM this year reminding me of what's important: my yearly "Mark My Word" thread. It may not be as popular as the Nip thread, but it is to me Here's how it works: the sportscasters are telling us how the season will go, but you know something they don't. Maybe it's just a gut feeling, maybe it's wishful thinking, but as far as you are concerned it will happen. So tell us about it. Make your boldest college football related prediction. It cannot be a wimpy prediction that you know will likely come true (e.g. "Auburn Beats San Jose State!") or one that many people believe anyway (e.g. "Jamis Winston gets in trouble again!"), but a prediction that almost no one else but you expects to happen. Maybe something that you have a gut feeling about, something that may defy logical thinking. It's got to be College Football related and could concern game outcomes, coach issues, final schedules, etc. After the season, we can revive this thread and see how our predictions turned out. Last year I made a prediction that surprised even me that it turned out correct: but I also made one that wasn't even close to being correct...

No edits once the season begins - although I doubt people would change their predictions to match the season, just want to make it clear. I'll get this started: Mark My Word: Penn State has the best record in the Big 10 at the end of the regular season. Mark My Word: Lane Kiffin is gone from Alabama before their bowl game. Mark My Word: Florida wins the East. Arguably not my boldest predictions based on my historical MMW predictions, but now you know how it works. So set's hear 'em: What are your boldest and craziest predictions?
  15. SEC Championship roll call!

    I'm going to be there, got tailgate passes and passes to the FanFare. Surprisingly, I purchased it all from an Alabama fan that had anticipated Bama being in the game.
