News of the day, 1/20
Big up to you all for taking a new average of 72 seconds to peruse the Auburn blog on the 'net.
The football team landed another commitment today, its 24th of the year, when Enterpise TE Ken Adams announced plans to sign with the Tigers. Auburn was the only major-school player to offer Adams a scholarship. That's either a shrewd diamond-in-the-rough pick (i.e. Dontarrious Thomas) or a what-were-they-thinking deal (i.e. Oscar Gonzalez). Either way, Tommy Tuberville now has 24 players committed or signed.
The men's basketball team beat Ole Miss 70-67 on Saturday night. This already has been a hot topic among the 1/18 comments. I don't have much to add aside from admitting that I was a little too harsh on DeWayne Reed. He comes and goes during a game, but he's good when he's going. He was critical on Saturday. If they had Barber and Dollard, that would be a pretty good team. Considering the dropoff with UK and Florida this season, Auburn might have had a chance to slide into the NCAAs.
The women lost at Kentucky today by seven points. F DeWanna Bonner had an off game and, well, that's how it goes. She's the only go-to player on the team right now, though I think G/F Sherrell Hobbs deserves credit for being an outstanding complementary player. She's the perfect Scottie Pippen. The problem is that Bonner is more Toni Kukoc than Michael Jordan.
This has nothing to do with Auburn, yet I'm intrigued that the Associated Press already has written an obit for Britney Spears. It's common for news organizations to write stories ahead of time for famous people who may be nearing the end of their lives. Our favorite 26-year-old star may or may not be in that boat, though I don't need Dr. Phil telling me she's troubled. She's just being a spoiled multi-millionaire who spent her adolescence getting everything she wanted and now doesn't know how to quench that thirst. One thing is for sure: She's one energetic hussy.
As many of you know, I'm a big fan of 80s music. I've been spending too much time lately perusing YouTube for music videos from the old days and, to my surprise, almost every video I seek is posted. I can't imagine growing up now days. Back in '83, I had to wait for MTV to play my favorite videos. No computer. No internet.
Anyway, here's one for you. Duran Duran's "Union of The Snake," a swell song accompanied by a non-sensical video:
