  1. Scarbinsky leaving

    I always like Scarbinsky. IMHO he was mostly fair with Auburn. I hate to see him move on.
  2. #17 Auburn at Alabama

    I've been telling all the Bama fans at work that they're our next victims. Talent-wise, Bama has a good team. We have just as much talent, and we have Bruce Pearl, who is a much better in-game coach than Avery Johnson. We will sweep Bama once again this year, and maybe get lucky and get to play/rip them again in the SEC tournament. At least that's what I've been telling the guys at work...
  3. Weather effect on bama game

    Haven't heard. I sure hope we play.
  4. Last AU drafted player was in 01. Wiley next?

    Wiley to the NBA? That's fine. Get him drafted, and get him out the hell of here. I hate "one-and-dones" anyway. Oh, I mean "one-and-a-half-done". But I guess since he didn't play this year, he's a "half-and-done"? I dunno. I wish his mom had gotten a better monetary offer from Alabama and saved us the trouble. If he's already made his decision to enter the NBA draft, fine. That's his prerogative . But if so, I wish they'd tell him to clear his locker and get out.
  5. Sports World Christmas Gift List

    Well, it's the Christmas season, my favorite time of the year. And every year about this time, I make out a list of gifts I'd like to give in the sports world. Below is my list for this year: For Gus and the Tigers, Now this is no con, I’d give them a senior, Who else? Kerryon. For Jarret the fumbler, Yes I’ll make this call, Good hands that would help him, Hold onto the ball. For AU fans patience, Malzahn we must trust, Our eggs and our future, Are now on his bus. To AU fans global, Yes I’ve heard their cry, I’d give a new AD, Who knows not Pat Dye. To Bruce and our hoopers, No snake oil I’d sell, I’d simply give clearance, To Austin, Danjel. To Chucky the person, Who screwed us you see, A cell full of big boys, Who don't have ED. Our girls on the diamond, I'd lighten their way, And give them a coach who, Won't make them his prey. For Bama and Nicky, I mean them no harm, I’d inject some magic, In Jalen’s lame arm. For Bammers all over, The pride to stand tall, ‘Cause Santa ain’t bringing, Another glass ball. To Vols fans in Knoxville, I say with no feign, I’d sure love to give them, A head coach named Lane. For Jimbo the traitor, The coward, the skank, I’d put all his dough in, An unguarded bank. For LSU Cajuns, Wherever they be, The strength to withstand, Eddie’s second of three. For Brett fired from Arky, And all of his kin, I'd give them a free ride, Back to the Big 10. For Tiger a driver, A wedge, a cigar, Whatever he may need, To help him make par. For Pop and the San Spurs, It’s easy as pie, I’d give them their big wish, A healthy Kawhi. And I’d also give them, To help guard the rim, The youthful arrival, Of David and Tim. And since they are so old, So long in the tooth, To Tony and Manu, The fountain of youth. For Magic and Walton, I’d brighten their day, And transfer Lavar to, Guantonimo Bay. For much maligned Lonzo, I’d somehow teach him, No points are awarded, For chipping the rim. For Cavs fans all over, A prayer and some hugs, ‘Cause it’s surely coming, 4 straight from the Dubs. For Eagles in Philly, A reprieve from hell, I’d give QB Carson, A new ACL. For Jerry and Cowboys, More precious than pearls, I’d give them a tailback, That don’t beat up girls. For BronBron and Tyron, The kings of the joint, I’d give them back Kyrie, To run their dull point. For Gordon and Boston, And for goodness sakes, A new 4 leaf clover, To prevent bad breaks. To Robert and Billy, And for Boston too, I’d give Jimmy G, ‘Cause you stepped in the poo.
  6. Upon Further Review - Auburn

    The LSU loss was 100% due to a stupid in-game strategy change by Gus. The domination by Georgia in the SECCG was mainly due to poor preparation. Yes, Kerryon's injury hurt. But how do we completely dominate both lines of scrimmage in the first game, and get completely dominated on both in the second? By not being prepared mentally to play.
  7. Carlson Runner-up Again For Lou Groza Award

    I thought Carlson was a bit of a disappointment this year, considering his potential. Too many early season misses, and too many very close calls on short, easy field goals. I'd gladly trade a couple missed PATs for a few more made field goals. Major award winners in the kicking game can't have an off-beginning to a season and expect to win against other kickers who don't.
  8. Bammer Excuse Thread

    I grew up in a total Bama family, but I was an AU fan from the very beginning. As a child, I hated bullies, and I always cheered for the underdog. My neighborhood had no shortage of arrogant bullies who berated anyone who liked Auburn. And that made me love Auburn. This is the same sort of story I hear today when people move to my city from up north or somewhere else far away. They mostly become Auburn fans because of the arrogance of Bama football fans. When my son was growing up, I had fellow AU alums whose children liked Bama, just because Bama was great then and AU was not. And most of my son's friends wanted to cheer for the best team at that time. I explained to my young son that we were AU fans, through and through, loyal even when our team was down. Strangely enough, he seemed to get that, even at 9 years old. But to answer your direct question: no, I've never cheered for Bama. I've never felt hatred toward them, but I never cheered for them, even against other teams besides AU.
  9. Gary Danielson

    I re-watched the game last night, and Danielson didn't seem overly anti-Auburn. Pro Alabama? Yes, to a degree, especially when he began stumping for them to make the CFP after it was clear Alabama would lose. His senseless and repeated comparisons between Jalen Hurts and Cam Newton got on my nerves, and his reference to "Gus Miles" was hilarious.
  10. Leath - Pearl Relations

    ^^^This. I'm afraid Leath might be from the mold of Jim Laney. And I'm afraid he might go overboard and clean house over perceived but non-existent dirt.
  11. Bammer Excuse Thread

    The Alabama fans I know had a hard time with the game yesterday. My dad is the most mellow Alabama fan I know, and here's how mellow he is: I heard him say recently that my decision to attend Auburn University 36 years ago (class of '85) "almost killed me". And that's a direct quote. I'm the ONLY Auburn fan in my family, immediate and extended, on both sides of my marriage, except for my son. I raised him right and he's an AU grad and fan as well. As will my grandson.
