Early Monday business

Hey everyone. Congratulations to Jet, who makes our "Featured Quote" section of the HABOTN. I got a great laugh out of that one. Fellow beat hack and slow writer Charles Goldberg of the Bammerham News also enjoyed it.

Here is today's agenda:
  • T-SHIRT ORDERS: If you reserved a shirt (or shirts) and you haven't ordered, then it's time to start thinking the best decision of your entire life. For only $15, you'll soon wear the hottest and most bodacious article of clothing ever created.

    Please check the original thread for information, instructions and The Order Form.

  • BEAT BAMA BASH IN MGM: If you're a (supporter of the Auburn football team) living in the Gump or surrounding areas, you have a shindig to consider on Tuesday night. The Montgomery Auburn Club is holding its annual Iron Bowl gathering next to Jubilee Seafood. We're talking about food, music, libations, the works. Dues may be paid at the door -- $25 for individuals, $30 for the fam.

    The partay runs from 5-8 p.m.

  • FOOTBALL SCHEDULE: Practice begins around noon CST. We'll be talking with players around 2:30 p.m. Here is the list of players available:
    WR Montez (Gonetez) Billings
    QB Kodi Burns
    OL Jason Bosley
    DT Tez Doolittle
    DB Zac Etheridge
    DT Sen’Derrick Marks
    TE Gabe (Spuds) McKenzie
    DB Jerraud Powers

    Tuberville's press conference is at 3 p.m. I'll be live blogging that. Video to run around 5.

Big Cat ... try the straight on, honest approach.

"Honey, I love you ... but I don't think it's a good idea to watch the game with your dad and grandpa. I love your family too much to do that, and I don't want anyone to get upset. No one wants a family fuss.

"So how about I head home to watch the game, and do some other chores, then I'll come get you early Sunday. Hey, gas is cheaper now, so it's not that big of a deal. The only problem is that I won't see you so dressed up for the wedding. But, hey, you're always beautiful to me."

See if that works for you.

But my wife understands her family's disfunctionality very well. I'd just hate to see this years IB undue so much progress.

While I understand Monica's questioning of the strategy, and acknowledging that she's a professional, and I've only got slap marks and bruises for my attempts at negotiating the marital minefield, my 20 years of experience says, if you love your wife, be honest with her.

Because if you don't have trust, you don't have much of a marriage.

The key to a successful marriage is not unlike that of a football team ... keep people in situations where they can't get in trouble.

I picked up the G&R CD yesterday afternoon. I have listened to probably the 1st 4 songs and I like it so far.

A lot of guitars on this album.

It's funny in the liner notes there are 5 pages of credits & thanks due to all the people who have worked on this album over 14 years.

I'll let you know after a couple of listens what I think about the whole album, but I like it so far.

On to Auburn stuff...

Any chance we will be able to at least get close to a stalemate at the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball vs Alabama? I see our only chance at victory being not getting pushed around at the line.

FSJ- WE were decimated with injuries in 2002 if I recall and that NFL QB was being coached down by the same Offensive Coordinator we again have today. I'm just trying to grasp at straws here. Everything in the world says that we shouldn't win this game, but you never know. Just remember, that Tubs has never lost to both Alabama and Georgia in the same year, but I know there are first times for everything.

The Last Six Years
By - Mr. Sensible

In this holiday season, I, as a mere fan, am thankful for the last six wins over arch-rival Alabama. I realize every streak comes to and end, but as a loss looms heavy on Saturday's horizon, I look back and wonder - Did I enjoy this?

Here's a sample of the excuses (in italics)I have heard from Alabama fans after the last six.

2002 Luck. Who knew Tre Smith could run?!? (I have a hard time arguing this one. It was a surprise.)
2003 Shula is young, the team is young, AU rallied around Tubby who was about to get run. (I have to say, it was a fun game to watch, but I left the stadium with more questions than answers.)
2004 Well, even AU at your best could only win 21-13. And that lack of style points cost AU in the BCS. (I hate hearing this because I think the whole style points argument is ridiculous.)
2005 Shula is an idiot - part 1. (I had a Honk if you Sacked Brodie sticker torn off my wall later that year by a Bama fan.)
2006 Shula is an idiot- part 2. And the refs should have called a penalty on that monster neck sack by Groves on JPW.
2007 Saban needs time for the process. And the refs should have called a penalty on that pick in the endzone.

So, as you can see, these six years of "bragging rights" haven't wrought much at all. I find comfort in the fact that the smack can't possibly be much worse when Alabama actually wins a game against Auburn.

To borrow lines from Jim Fyffe and Rod Bramlett:
My time is up, I thank you for yours. So long, everybody.

12:44 PM  
Blogger Michael4AU said...

Nice post Sensitive with the six year retrospect. I haven't given up the dream for 7 yet, but still nice.

2004 stands out for me because that is when I learned that Bama had apparently resorted to living off of moral victories and I absolutely loved that. Personally, though, 2002 trumps all, only to be replaced by 2008 this Saturday.

you know, I throw around a lot of false Auburn confidence on these here message boards, but darn it, I will seriously be surprised if we lose this game. I know there is no reason we should win, but we have been winning for 6 years... that loss in '01 seems like ages ago. I am not prepared for a world where Auburn loses to Alabama. As such, I expect to win this Saturday, and any other result will be a shock.

The secret to a good marriage is two words: yes dear.

As for Carl Bama, he appears to be a refugee from al.com, but I don't think he is faking since he portrays that Bama class so well.

As for our lines matching up, I think our defensive line matches up with the Bama offensive line as good as anyone, but it is going to be tough stopping that Bama running game.

Our offensive line against Bama's defensive line will likely be rough unless our players have recovered from the Franklin System and gained about 20 pounds each.

"It's not our fault that the NCAA put us in NCAA jail for cheating, because Roy Kramer and Phil Fulmer conspired to expose us for the cheaters we are, and that our ADs have been buffoons, and that our coaches until The Great Satan -- uh, Saban -- were idiots."

Splain this to me, because I'm not that smart: How did UT, Florida, LSU and the rest of the league manage to lose to UAT at one point or another during the stretch?

Here's the mitigation situation: you got your head handed to you for six straight years. It may end Saturday. May not. Either way, save me the mitigation crap because it's pure, unadulterated fertilizer.

The best excuse I have heard from Bama fans about 2002 was that fran had already decided to leave. Bama had the better team. Fran was a master at game planning. That year, Bama was vanilla while NAll had us in a great game plan.

As I recall Nall said, this was the first game where he was allowed to Run his offense.

Last year we are the better team. Better team wins most of these.

I like this place better when the Carl's of the world don't invade. Too bad Jay doesn't have a banhammer for the blog comment section.

eddie, I believe you can ban blog comments, but only if you require users to be registered to comment.

wtc,

Tiderinsider is a pay Alabama message board, sorta like the pay side of ITAT or the Rivals Auburn site.

There are several opponent fans that pay to post on that site and stir up trouble. You can usually find them whenever things aren't going well. They've been relatively quiet this year.

Blogger Jet G. Ate said...

C'mon kids ...

Ol' Bull Crap -- I mean, Bama Carl -- serves a useful purpose ... gets us fired up for practice during game week.

It's like posting a cheesy photo in a locker reminder UAT of losses to Mississippi State and LAMO.

Every day, I have to fight off going soft, thinking we can co-exist peacefully.

We can't. Every cowboy movie needs a dude with a black hat. We like FSJ too much for him to be that guy.

We got Carl. So at least we got that goin' for us.

There are Auburn fans just as obnoxious as any Bama fan. Or do you forget how many people booed Brandon Cox last year, or the people that booed Daniel Cobb when he was announced on senior day after being demoted earlier the season? I know we like to pretend we are holier than thou, but i imagine there are a few moron auburn fans who do the same thing on bama boards.

HABOTN is good though.

From this day forward let it be known that anyone that makes repeated idiotic posts on here should now be referred to as "Carl".

Steve- Then maybe we should all be required to register, but I would hate to miss comments from people like marcellus_mostella.

That'll really bother Tim to be called Carl. Serves him right though for posting stupid stuff from time to time.

1:56 PM  
Blogger Steve from Columbia said...

eddie, I don't like the idea of posting being restricted either, but Carl demonstrates how somewhere like this can become a useless waste of time where kids make silly posts and the actual discussions become impossible.

Thanks FSJ- I thought this site was mostly tame compared to either of the pay sites or the al.com sites. I know we rag some on you, but we usually keep it respectful as do you with your retorts.

BTW-Carl, is that your skateboard parked outside.

My name is Jet and I approve this message.

Oh...This site is very tame. Jay does a good job of setting the tone..

Disagreements, IMO do not equal flames.

I am perfectly happy discussing why I think this or that will happen in a game...even if it goes against the prevailing sentiment.

Okay, maybe anonymous posters should be referred to as Tim or Carl based upon the content of the post. Seems fair enough:)

Blogger Mark said...

FSJ, My bad on 2002. I misremembered. I am getting old (45).

Michael 4 AU. I would love for us to win; but, and I think we will put a great foot forward; but, this year's team needs a period to find itself and find an offense.

As much as I think Franklin was bad, I am now concerned Rhoads may not have been the best choice either.

We need to re-think and mold ourselves into another 2002 team.

2:05 PM

2:07 PM  
Blogger Steve from Columbia said...

I still think this offense isn't bad, it is just misunderstood. I think, as with the Georgia game, we will play respectably and have a shot at winning in the end.

I have a new top secret plan for out problems in the redzone. Anytime we get in the redzone, we have Ziemba do his illegal motion thing to get us out of the danger area. This play has worked repeatedly in the past, and we can then open the offense up.

2:08 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Sorry, you all.

I was on my way to work and couldn't catch dude quickly. We have eliminated anonymous posting for the moment; sucks for crudup and fsj (who sometimes posts without being logged in) but that's where we are.

Shouldn't be a big deal. Many of the HOTTIES are registered anyway.

Stay classy, San Diego!

2:10 PM

Man, I knew this was coming. I don't consider all bad though. Being registered does help. In this way everyone can be like me. I stand by all the mis-statements that I make.

2:11 PM  
Blogger Jet G. Ate said...

So BC now steps into the analysis zone ... which is fine.

I've always found those types of analyses useless because Kodi isn't competing directly against JPW. That's not Carl's fault as sports writers have done this for eternity.

The question is how effective UAT's OL is against AU's DL, and AU's OL vs. UAT's DL, WRs vs. DBs, and kicking game matchups.

To me, the game comes down to whether UAT is successful running the ball. If it does, game over.

If not, then it gets interesting.

2:12 PM

I will not be denied...

Mark,

I remember 2002 all too well....

If that happens this year, y'all will be able to find me over in the corner, in a fetal position, sucking on a bottle of tequila, mumbling incoherently.

I actually didn't mind Carl's last post. I thought we were actually turning that guy around. Another HABOTN success story!

Tim just emailed me, and he is pretty angry right now about being banned. I guess he wasn't Carl after all.

2:18 PM  
Blogger eddie4au said...

FSJ- We only intend to deny you this coming Saturday. Other than that, you have free reign.

2:18 PM  
Blogger Steve from Columbia said...

Jet G. Ate, I agree. How well we stop that Bama running game will decide this Iron Bowl. Our defense is good, but we have shown vulnerability against the run.

Any announcements on when services will be held for the late Bama Carl. I have to say that we barely new him. Rest in peace Bama Carl.

FSJ, I am glad to see you won't be denied. We need a counterbalance to my unrealistic optimism.

2:18 PM  
Blogger Steve from Columbia said...

After deep thinking over that the "Live to Punt" comment, I am convinced we are installing the Mike Shula offense for the Bama game. It is a fairly simple system that can be learned quickly, three handoffs to the tailback up the middle followed by a punt. Please keep this under your hat. I don't want the gameplan to be leaked.

2:22 PM  
Blogger wartiger said...

I didn't even know FSJ is a Bama fan..huh?! well you're a pretty cool guy to hang with us AU fans..so I am assuming that Bama doesn't have an HABOTN equivalent?? ofco nothing compares to this HABOTN but surely there is a blog for reasonable, generally intelligent blogging for the bama nation??

2:26 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

I thought the Shula offense was to have the QB do a 3 step drop and the linemen release on every play like it's a screen pass.

2:27 PM  
Blogger Jet G. Ate said...

I can now reveal to you that Auburn will unveil a new offensive attack Saturday.

It's the SAD Spread, which stands for Stretch And Draw from the spread formation.

2:27 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

No HABOTN equivalent on the Bama side.

:-(

2:29 PM  
Blogger wartiger said...

sorry for ya FSJ...why do you think that is?(no equivalent of the HABOTN for bama?)

2:33 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

All this talk about the Mike Shula offense is giving me indigestion.

Additionally, I'm hearing from my UT pals that Kiffin may be the new UT coach as soon as next Monday.

Shocking to me, because I thought they would make a serious run at Davis.

2:34 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Not sure...Seems to be an opportunity to have a good Bama blog similar to this one.

I generally read Tiderinsider for my Bama fix.

2:36 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

I think Jay should do a Bama blog for the few weeks he will be covering the Tide this postseason..

Great idea, if I do say so myself. he wouldn't even have to change the HABOTN...

ehehehe.

2:38 PM  
Blogger wartiger said...

I am interested now..what makes a seemingly smart, well versed, bama fan hang out here? We are pretty reasonable and tend to avoid the ugliness but aren't you getting some orange and blue on ya..can you be swayed FSJ..??

2:39 PM

is Jay even an AU fan..I mean he graduated from Kentucky?

2:40 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Actually, I read three message boards..

Tiderinsider, ITAT, and an SEC centric message board. There are a few posters on ITAT that I pay attention to....One of them linked this blog a couple of months ago so I started following it. I just happened to navigate over during a campfire one night, so I jumped in. Everytime I try to leave, Monica or hoopie begs me to stay, so I guess y'all are stuck with me.

2:43 PM

wartiger- not only is FSJ getting some orange and blue on him, he is also going to be wearing it.

2:44 PM  
Blogger Jet G. Ate said...

Jay's not a fan ... it's not his job to be a fan ... he's a journalist ... I'm not speaking for him, but I would presume the blog is a way to do three things:

1. report things that there's not room in the paper for

2. A way to report things on a moment's notice basis instead of waiting until the next day's paper.

3. interact with readers to find out what's important to them about their team, which is the one he's assigned to cover.

2:45 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

LOL...Like I said the other day, it will be the only thing I own with orange in it...

Jay, I am serious disappointed by your professionalism. Didn't you learn anything from Jim Fyffe? There is a place for unbiased journalism, but this ain't it. You now live in the state of Alabama, which means that you must choose. It is mandatory. I think it is required for voter registration as well.

3:23 PM

well I think I am going to think of you as the ultimate AU fan..bringing info..apparell..and the best blog around Jay..WAR EAGLE!! BEAT BAMA!!

3:25 PM  
Blogger CovingtonTigerFan said...

I'll admit, it's been hard for me to remain a die-hard UK enthusiast since moving to Alabama. I still follow them and pull for them, but not nearly as rabidly as I did when I lived in Versailles. So I'd have to agree with Jay -- the longer I'm gone and the further I'm removed from the frenzy that is Kentucky athletics, the harder it is to bleed blue completely -- especially since I didn't go to school there, and since all I ever hear about down here is AU and UA.

3:29 PM  
Blogger michael said...

It would certainly be a conflict of interest if Jay was an Auburn fan. He is supposed to give objective info on the team.

Team radio announcers don't have the same trust in objectivity that journalists do. Different set of rules.

3:32 PM  
Blogger wartiger said...

never really thought about it like that..what is so hard about being objective but being a fan?especially when you're paid to do it..

3:37 PM  
Blogger Steve from Columbia said...

I see reason for optimism. This team has one important thing in common with the 2002 team. I have no idea what we will do offensively. Will Burns go pass happy like he did against Ole Miss, or will he run the ball like he did against Georgia. Will Bama get a big dose of Ben Tate, or will Lester be back on track. Will Fannin emerge as the guy? How about Chris Slaughter and Rod Smitth? Will they participate? And there is a possibility of the biggest shock of all, namely bringing in Chris Todd.

The important thing to remember is that we are still recovering from getting Franklined, or getting Fed for short. Now that we have seemingly been de-Fed, we have to ask ourselves how good this team really is.

During the last two games we played the second best team in the west followed by the second best team in the east. In both games, we were competitive. That tells me we should be competitive against the Fing Tide too.

3:37 PM  
Blogger wartiger said...

Nice post Steve.
I think we've lost 4 game by a total of 12 points this year..(i think that's accurate..somebody help me out) so yes we are competitive..also there has been improvement every week..no not giant leaps but at least some..who knows..I've said it alot this year but maybe it will click this weekend..
