Back in the old days you could go to the ABC store and there were guys out front who would take your order, go inside and make the purchase and bring it back for only a minor carrying charge.....guessing that does not go on much any more. 

It does . People are just fools. Sometimes folks will try to finesse you though. No bargaining skills smh.

As noted.....things must be going pretty well on the discipline front with the football program when a young walk-ok becomes click bait on al.com.   I feel bad for the kid and after Gus runs him up and down the stadium a hundred times, I hope this is forgotten.  

And of course, he should only be allowed to play the second half of the Washington game as a penalty.

You should have seen how the Facebook links were titled to get you to click.  “Auburn receiver arrested.  How much will this impact Auburn’s recieving corps?”

Yeah I saw that. Glad I knew beforehand or I would have been triggered. We can make jokes now but if it was a scholarship player....Oh boy.

First, you're correct.  If THIS is news, I feel good about the off-season so far *knock on wood*.

As for the bolded part.  I would imagine that as a young walk-on, playing the second half of the Wash game would be considered a reward.

The day I acquired legal age,

I marched into an old favorite establishment, and

demanded to be carded.

I've always looked older than I am (fairly big guy here) so I got away without even being carded quite a few times.  Matter of fact, oddly enough, the first time I was carded was my actual 21st birthday.

Guessing this thread is gonna carry-on awhile as a reminiscing thread.  :beer2:

Interesting how many people's lives are so pathetic that their day is brightened by a Walk On college football player being arrested for public intox and a fake I.D.  The very fact that this makes the news shows how depraved and degenerate (wasn't sure how to spell delinquent...lol) our society has become.  Glad I'm not in college now and that cellphones, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, snapchat, youtube, etc. weren't around when I was. Or maybe not...with it, I could've been a contender!

Bravo for this post. We are a nation of 330 million, and we’ve convinced ourselves that every individual action is national news. And this is vintage Crepea crap. That man has problems. He waits for ANYTHING negative to report, and if he cant find something, he will put a negative twist on an otherwise positive story. If I were the Auburn AD, he and AL.com in general, would suddenly find themselves having decreased access to all things AU athletics.

Fans can get onto Gus for a lot of things, but one of those will never be discipline and keeping his players in line.  Doesn’t matter if you are a walk-on or the star player, break a rule and Gus is coming after you.  Have to admire that.  Most coaches will just cover it up if it means they have a better chance at winning the next game with that player on the field.

I think Gus has done a great job of doing the work on the front end and installing a somewhat self-sustaining culture. While his "brand" is unique, I think that's a quality that he has in common with a lot of the great coaches in all sports and leaders in general. It's innate in him and not learned- he damned sure didn't learn it from Houston Nutt or Gene Chizik- and it's one of the things that gives me optimism that more experience will turn him into a much less polarizing coach.

True...but expect Gus learned a lot from the disaster year of the Chiz regime....of course Gus never had any of his players involved in hold-up or shooting/murder.  That probably changes a coach's perspective quite a bit.  .

When something like this is the best Craepa can come up with it looks like things are in good shape.  Back in the day when auditors came to my department,  you knew they were going to find something in Purchasing Department....and when the primary complaints were about excessive meals while traveling, we knew we were going pretty well.

Good point. There's a lot of value in learning what not to do. And it's clear now that Gus had already seen plenty and wanted no part of it.

AU needs to freeze Crepea out completely.  He is an unmitigated ass and is no good for Auburn in any capacity.

I'm actually okay with this, also. We don't need to go full cult like our 2 main rivals, but it's perfectly okay and I think somewhat expected for beat writers to be at least a tiny bit friendly to their beat. I realize that Gus hasn't been the easiest coach to deal with but Jimmy Creepy openly whined about Gus no-showing an event years ago and has been aggressively anti-Gus/Auburn (for a beat writer) ever since.

In Crepea's defense (not that I really want to defend him), he's got an editor breathing down his neck to produce articles and if not the same editor than someone else constantly monitoring the number of clicks his articles get and using that as a measuring stick for the quality of the article. Let's face it, anti-Auburn sells in the state of Alabama so those are the articles that get the oh so important clicks. But back to my point... it's not just Crepea that's an issue, or to @oracle79's point the people who consume the news, it's the entire state of the media, itself. When the world switched from measuring the quality of the news to measuring the number of clicks it got, everything pretty much went to hell in a hand basket. 

It's not just Auburn, by the way. I saw an article just yesterday about a child porn sting. It turned out, a couple of the losers who were busted worked for theme parks. Neither worked in a customer facing capacity, but yup, you guessed it, the headline included both park's names as if it was incriminating that they hired someone who was found out to be a total creep for a behind the scenes position where they have no access to anyone.

For the umpteenth time I will note that beat writers are in the business for themselves...not to promote the team they are covering.  Expose's are the route to the top in sports journalism.   BUT schools like AU and the SEC in general crave publicity and insist that schools and coaches "make themselves available" to the media...so they do it as part of their job...but guess nothing says they have to be forthcoming or revealing.  

I'm OK with how Gus handles them....and see no advantage to AU in disclosing anything that might give aid or comfort to the enemy.   Trust nobody out there thinks that being open and friendly with a media hack is gonna cause the hack to pull any punches.

Of course they are. Just like the coaches that they love, loathe or feel ambivalence towards. Everyone is self interested. That is not news.

By all means, provide the long and illustrious list of former beat writers who got ahead by screwing over their sources and subjects.

Well, it's already been pointed out well over "umpteen times" and you choose not to process the information provided so I won't bother.

Oh, and yes exposes are big business, but not for beat writers exposing their beat. Pete Thamel and Thayer Evans are not beat writers.

No... for beat writers it's ALL about keeping their column full and getting the clicks... all of the clicks.

I'm not gonna do the research for you but several previous AU beat writers have been promoted beyond AU and none were because they wrote puff pieces about Auburn while they were here.   They have to get the clicks....and in the state of Alabama you get the clicks by appealing to the bammers...and what better way to appeal to the bama that write a piece with a negative slant toward AU ?      Creapa is the latest example....

And being nice to a rattlesnake does not change it's personality...

Okay. You made the assertion. But okay.

Maybe name a writer who has been as antagonistic as Creepy? I'm much newer to the game than many here, so I definitely stand to be corrected.

Really? Being nice to someone or a group of people doesn't affect how they treat you? That's a pretty strange notion.

Btw, since we're not doing research for each other, google "james crepea gus malzahn auburn quarterback club". It explains a lot about how Auburn football has been treated since.

Agreed. I expect journalists to report relevant facts. An obscure walk-on the majority of fans don’t know getting a PI is not relevant. What Crepea does, is inject a level of sarcasm and cynicism into every article he writes, whether it is relevant or not. Journalism as it once was is dead.

Definitely some truth to that, but it's a fine line. An Auburn coach would have to be pretty naive to trust any media organization who's primary readership flat out worships their biggest rival.

I'm not sure it has anything to do with trust. All he has to do is be available and have a personality. Nobody's asking him to share his playbook or make some bold political stance (even though the LOVE saban for taking firm, animated and engaging stances on a variety of issues, even when he's belittling them in front of their colleagues). Speaking of him, the media wasn't like this in 2008. The meter can be moved back in the other direction, albeit never to full center, and it will have a positive effect on the program and the school. It would be a little pathetic and counterproductive to just throw our hands up and say "damned if we do, damned if we don't". I trust that AD Greene agrees with me on that and is in the process of making positive changes beyond just staffing.

See there's your problem. Personality isn't even in his playbook and take it form a guy who has to film people as part of his job, personality in front of a crowd can't be taught. What we need is a guy like Bruce Pearl as a media liaison.

That's somewhat on him and somewhat on them. In 2008 we didn't have beat reporters giving the coach crap like we do now. In 2008 they still slanted toward bama, but at least they were respectful. Crepea found Gus's buttons and pushed them, repeatedly, which created the rift.
