  1. Last AU drafted player was in 01. Wiley next?

    Was very surprised to see UGA didn’t use the same defensive approach that Bama did. Ba gave them the blueprint on how to beat AU. Defend the perimeter and make them drive. AU seems to struggle with the midrange jumper and would rather drive to the basket, and doing that against bigger teams like Bama did not work well. AU would either get called for a charge, get the ball blocked or miss. What a second half AU had against UGA. It was one heckuva turnaround.
  2. Men vs. uat

    Surprised Petty didn’t hit the pump fake 3 pointer. He’s made everything else.
  3. Wiley and Purifoy

    I’m curious what proof the FBI can offer that money was or wasn’t accepted. In the original complaint against Person, the government witness did indeed witness one of the families take $1,000 cash. While one of the two obviously received illegal benefit, There was no mention of the second family taking cash. When asked by the government witness if they gave the families more money, Person and the suit guy both indicated later that they also gave each family singinicant money, but that seems odd. The whole reason this scam was created was because person and the suit guy (Michel) were looking to benefit financially. Given the way Person was acting in the discussions with Michel, it seemed he was desperate for cash. I don’t know if I can believe Person actually gave someone money when he was in a state of desperation to get money quickly for some reason. Seems odd the suit guy would either. This is the same guy that fought with Dominique Wilkins at a Hawks game over $13,000 in payments that Wilkins owed the suit guy for some suits. Person is obviously a greedy guy if he was willing to risk his job for some quick cash. Seems plausible he just TOLD the government witness that he gave them 5 figures.

    Totally agreed. I was in the nosebleed section and echo your sentiments. (Don't know if that was happening all year or not as that's the first game I was able to attend this year.) If he goes to the NFL, he better have a rock solid O line that doesn't get him sacked much because in those games he got sacked more than a few times this year, he became gunshy quickly and as noted above, take off and run directly INTO trouble for another sack even when the pocket was holding together. The NFL is a passing league and he ain't there yet. He obviously peaked in the UGA/Bama games and then regressed.
  5. We're gonna be fine

    You should move to Georgia. That UGA hate meter will go off the charts over Bama. Recently I arrived at my car at the same time as another guy, and the guy (in his UGA garb) says nicely "Go on ahead." I thanked him and got into my car, and as I backed up, he saw my AU tag and motioned for me to roll my window down. He then says, "If I'd a known you were an AU fan, I wouldn't have let you go first." I smiled, thinking he was goofing around and then he says without a grin, "I wasn't kidding." and he turns and gets in his car. My kid was in the car with me, and I just stared at him for a few seconds trying to decide if it I was going to say what I really wanted to say. Instead, I shook my head, rolled my window back up and my 12 year old turns to me and says, "Man, who pee'd in his breakfast?" I snorted and moved on. But that's the norm in these parts. They're just as bad as the bammers IMO, and the fact they're going for a natty now has them at near intolerable levels.

    No fat to sustain him - That's my excuse for not losing weight. "But honey, I need fat to sustain me. What if we get attacked by a bear one day? I need plenty of energy to outrun you." If a bear attacks, you don't have to be the fastest one in the group as you dash away, just don't be the slowest.
  7. Wiley and Purifoy

    THIS IS BULL SNOT!! My head is about to pop off! This team has played lights OUT without these guys on the court, but DANG it, let's move on this and make a decision. Somebody poop or get off the pot!. Hop to it. ChopChop! Time's a wastin'. Hustle now. I said GIT! Let's do this!

    This whole thing with Sexton SCrEAMs “favor with the NCAA”. Bama’s director of basketball operations got canned because he was going down the same path that Person was. He got $10k from the fbi informant. He just wasn’t witnessed giving cash to sexton’s parents. But he was mentioned in the Person investigation and the only reason they didn’t have money changing hands between the handler or coach and Sexton’s parents is the feds decided to break this case wide open right after Bama’s coach got money. Funny how the timing of the investigation being made public let Bama off the hook. It’s almost as if it was by design. Why else would they take things public when they did? Can’t have such a storied institution like Bama getting pulled into this mess, now can we?? Perhaps I’m being a little “tinfoil hat”, but the timing of all this seems awful fortuitous for Bama. Almost like they have a horseshoe in their pocket. Or some high level NCAA types...
  9. All-American linebacker Shaquem Griffin

    Dude definitely plays like a man. Wonder how the NFL will view him. When Jason Pierre Paul had part of his hand amputated due to the fireworks accident, it was a huge deal. I think he’s done pretty well since but playing with a partial hand is something this kid has adjusted for his whole life while Paul is obviously new to such hand issue and still learning how to compensate. Hopefully he gets a shot to prove himself.
  10. Peach Bowl could be historic

    This. It also gives Stidham a series to calm down/reset if he's getting planted. Who knows if it would be successful, but forcing a defense to at least consider what might happen with a new QB gives them cause to pause with their defensive strategy. At least it's a change of pace. Dang, this coaching thing is easy!
  11. On to UCF

    I'm looking forward to it. The UCF defense was non-existent vs Memphis. It was a track meet in the first half. Based on what I've seen of them, they'll easily be one of the worst defenses AU will have seen all year. I'm sure UCF will be jacked up and wanting to send their coach off to Nebraska with an undefeated season as their going away present, so AU better bring their emotions with them. My biggest complaint is it's a morning game on Jan 1. Getting the family up early Jan 1 and after staying up to watch Dick Clark's Rockin' New Year's Eve and stumbling down to the Mercedes Dome would be much easier if they moved it to a mid afternoon game Someone should start a petition to make it later in the day.
  12. Im so durn mad.

    I just ordered one of these for kicks. Never knew they existed. My life is now complete. “Where is my dangit doll?? My head is about to pop off!!”
  13. So What Now?...

    Not a believer in giving such a long term contract for that very reason but I can't believe he'd just get lazy/apathetic. He is still a relatively young guy and seems to have the energy needed for the job. I think he's learned a lot in the past season, to AU's detriment at times, but as long as he keeps growing as a coach, I figure AU is gonna be fine. AU didn't want to engage in a coaching search at this juncture given what has already committed elsewhere and they'd be picking through leftovers and Sexton forced AU's hand. Gus just coached AU to a 10 win or likely 11 win season and got the most out of his team when he was on the ropes and one more loss away (after the LSU debacle) from being shown the door (IMO) after 3 consecutive years of 7-8 wins. Trends in recruiting continue to look solid and the kids continue to fight for wins when he could have EASILY lost them for good after LSU. It was a disappointing day Saturday but sometimes it just ain't your day.
  14. Peach Bowl Ticket Prices

    Agreed. We ain’t that far of a drive for them, especially during the holiday. And this is their super bowl. Had to go ahead and buy ours tonight as I don’t get to go much due to kid sports, and I ain’t missing it, regardless of the fact I’m not overly jacked about the matchup.
  15. Chip Lindsey the "X" factor?

    Cubelic says he believes Gus leaves if AU loses today. I’ve never given much credence to the Gus to Arky thing, but Cubelic knows a lot of folks, so who knows.
