Auburn 75, Tuskegee 32

OK. More basketball action coming your way from Beard-Eaves Memorial Coliseum.

  • FINAL: Auburn 75, Tuskegee 32.
    • Tuskegee shot 19.2% (15 of 64)
    • Tuskegee hit 1 of 16 from three-point range
    • Tuskegee hit 1 of 8 from the free-throw line
    • That's the lowest Auburn opponent point total since 1948


  • @ the 3:00 mark
    Auburn leads, 62-30.

  • Frankie Sullivan just scored on a shooting foul. What can I say?

  • Lucas Hargrove just scored on a shooting foul. That breaks a long streak.

  • SECOND TO @ 11:29
    Auburn leads, 40-25.

  • FIRST TO @ 15:47
    Auburn leads, 36-19. Haven't been watching. I'm writing a story about Nick Fairley for tomorrow's editions.

  • HALFTIME
    Auburn leads, 30-11.

just watch the 89 Florida game or the 89 Bama game for Wasden. Reggie Slack hit him in the EZ for the winning TD vs. UF with seconds remaining. classic. he also had a long pass play against the Tide. those are the 2 plays that stand out.

8:41 PM  
Blogger Monica said...

Luv - the policy manual is where the fun stuff is - it's intentionally vague - best practices dictate that BOT's govern and leave the managing to staff. However, with this BOT (as with lots of boards) the roles and boundaries are blurred. It makes for an unhealthy organization. Sound familiar?

In the same sentence: delegates to the President of the University the full conduct and control of Auburn’s athletics program, holds the President responsible for it, and includes this responsibility among those assessed during presidential performance reviews.

Also, look at the list of bot members since 1920. The years of service are interesting. Some stay a year, some think it's Hotel California. Another failing of the by-laws. A health BOT either has strictly enforced term limits or it has a board that self governs and sheds deadwood when needed.

9:13 PM  
Blogger Jet Says Merry Chizmas said...

OK, I know a little about this ... the current BOT was grandfathered in when the constitutional amendment was passed ... there is an age limit that will get Lowder at the end of his term ... now when the term expires they can serve for an additional year, but then the seat becomes vacant. Previously, the holder of the seat stayed in office until a successor was confirmed.

9:20 PM

Well, surely Rodney will come home in the end...but maybe not.

Dye sure did seem to know alot about the assistant coaches that Chizik was looking at....I wonder how???? HMMM???

9:20 PM  
Blogger coosa said...

Glad you enjoyed it, mrtommyd. That was a typical Pat Dye game - he played to win it 10-7 and it worked out. Well, actually he played to win it 9-7, but we missed the FG on the next to last drive and had to score a TD at the end.

And FL scored a TD early and played to try to win with 7 pts, and it almost worked.

Those were the days.

9:21 PM  
Blogger Jet Says Merry Chizmas said...

Fyffe was the greatest ... of course, for kids of my age in MOntogmery... he used to announce YMCA pee wee football games on WCOV-TV ... sadly, he called the game when I "obomanu-ed" a sure TD in the end zone.

9:21 PM  
Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

Monica, very true, but I still don't like it.

9:22 PM  
Blogger mrtommyd said...

Yeah - those were the days, holding your breath for 4 quarters hoping it all worked out. Which is better than holding your breath for 4 quarters waiting for the train wreck to happen.

9:23 PM  
Blogger Jet Says Merry Chizmas said...

Given where we are at the moment, I don't see Dye as an advisor as a horrible thing ... I'm sure Chizzle is ultimately picking his staff ... but having a sounding board is not a bad idea. OF course, if Callaway becomes OC, then I will change my tune.

9:23 PM

Eddie ... if I've preached energy once, I've preached it a thousand times.

One thing ... the expectation bar for Chizzle is so low with recruits, I guess they're expecting Forrest Gump or Barney Fife to walk in the room. I would imagine he's knocking several of them flat.

9:29 PM  
Blogger coosa said...

Aubigcat - I don't remember much about some of the games from my freshman year either, so I understand. ;)

My freshman year was 1972, the year of the Amazins. And yes, I'm one of 600,000 who claim to have been at the 17-16 win over bammer, but I still have the ticket stub to prove it. Went with several friends - no date- and after it was 16-0 in the 4th Q we all decided we might as well just get drunk. No, I had no hope at all. Being drunk wasn't such a bad thing after we won it. I remember telling everybody it was the happiest day of my life; about all I remember though.

LuvAu1968 - I think that call in the 10-7 FL game was Jim Fyffe's finest moment.

Sure do miss him.

But then I miss Buddy Rutledge too. Bet I'm the only person here who remembers his calls.

If you work at an insane asylum, is it politically correct to come home and say "I had a crazy day?"

9:41 PM  
Blogger Jet Says Merry Chizmas said...

There are two institutions in Tuscaloosa and you'd have to be crazy to go to either.

Is that politically incorrect?

Ah yeah I do sales in the mobile area that cause me to travel down there at least 2 days a week so I normally get a hotel room in daphne. I like it down there but today was soo foggy! I love the food down there. Seafood is one of my absolute favorites.

JD/PDWT

Mrs. Jet and I just got back from a whirlwind of MOB/Point Clear/Fairhope ... great seafood.

9:45 PM  
Blogger JD the Biscuitator said...

PDWT...has the ole coach been hitting you lately?

9:45 PM  
Blogger JD the Biscuitator said...

Jet you are right on about that. I ate dinner with some customers last night at Felix's. I know we had one in Montgomery a few years ago but honesly, DANG...why did we ever let it go? It was amazing.

9:46 PM  
Blogger Jet Says Merry Chizmas said...

Felix in MGM was in bad location ... old Darryl's ... loser location ... too many different things had been there. should have waited and put it at EastChase.

Of course, I am a huge fan of Jubilee in Old Cloverdale.

to all,

Yes Dye has been hitting the turkey. He is like all old people he is lonely and likes to talk, old people like to think their opinion matters.

Mobile = mardi gras, lots of traffic, high crime, lots to do, great restaurants. too many bamers

Daphne = the bay town, the tru bay city, eastern shore, good seafood, over priced houses

Fairhope/Point Clear - Grand Hotel-must see and visit, awesome place all around, if you are a state employee or retiree u get great discounts. Fairhope, old, wealthy town, exclusive, really neat, anti-commercialization

9:49 PM  
Blogger JD the Biscuitator said...

PDWT-What hotel in point clear do you speak of?

9:51 PM  
Blogger Jet Says Merry Chizmas said...

PDWT ...

used my discount for 1 night at renaissance (couldn't get in BAttle House) and 2 nights at Grand.

Fairhope/Point Clear is the bomb-diggity.

Mobile's OK ... love the Dew Drop.

Blogger patdyeswildturkey said...

Felix's is awesome,good view, in the summer they have bands underneath in the swamp room, good place to watch the alligators down below. Long wait there. The same people who own Ruth's Chris steakhouse in Mobile own Felix's and ahhhh they own like half of mobile. So I assume they built/bought a place where they could eat. Anything on the causeway is good and unique. Dont get caught in bad rain down there or your car wil get stuck.

9:53 PM  
Blogger patdyeswildturkey said...

Its called the Grand hotel in Point Clear owned by Marriot run by RSA(Bonner). 5 star, food, drinks, 200 yrsold on the water, golf, tennis, massage, etc...the whole deal. During the sr. bowl you will see all kinds of folks over there.

Senior Bowl in Mobile is the best of you are a football fan. You can meet and mingle with everyone and anyone in college or pro football.

They all are accesible. They go to all the functions, you see them in bars and restaurants. The coaches tell you this is their vacation. By the game they have already scouted everything they can about the kids. So the coaches come to game like a vacation. The team comp them and they see their buddies, party, eat out etc,. I have many stories about the coaches, they live it up and run wild.

9:58 PM  
Blogger patdyeswildturkey said...

The Players they are all business because they know a good or bad week could cost them millions.

JD ... save up ... if there's a Mrs. JD, take her to the Grand for a weekend ... she'll tolerate your HABOTN addiction more readily.

Fools, don't bash Jacobs!!! Why? Well, I submit the following from one of Jay G's articles.

"Jacobs said results weren't important to him."

Now, study that sentence very closely. See if you draw the same conclusion I do. I want to work for that guy.

So, Mr. Jacobs, I would just like to take this opportunity to kiss your butt. I can see where your non-results oriented thinking is a revolutionary concept and I am on board.

I will settle for a $100K lifetime contract with a $6 Million buyout. Let me know when I should show up for work.

Blogger SteveFC the optimist said...

And in other shocking developments, Carlos Rogers reveals his racist beliefs by saying that Chizik was the best choice for the job. I don't know if Carlos Rogers is qualified to make this determination because, as we all know, the best judge of college football head coaching talent is NBA has beens that are attempting to keep their names in the limelight.

Oh man, Jay, I should be a reporter, just like you. I am getting rather good at this stuff.

Speaking of Causeway seafood joints, has anyone tried Oysterella's lately? My wife and I had a bad experience there not long after they opened, but I'm curious to know if they've improved at all. Out of that stretch, I'm really partial to Felix's or Ed's. The Oyster House is usually too crowded, and Bluegill has turned into little more than a Sunday afternoon destination.

Heard the rumor about Wasden late this afternoon. A competent WR coach would be a breath of fresh air on the Plains (right, Hoopie?). Great news about Freeman. I hope CGC can pull some more turnarounds like that in the future.

Fyffe's greatest call had to be Sanders in the Endzone at the Swamp in '94. Maybe it was because I had to work on Saturdays that year, so I only got to hear that year's games on the radio like in '93, but that one was just incredible

This may have already played out, but for those lending credence to the "Rane called Houston Nutt" story that was making the rounds yesterday, here's a perfectly good rebuttal, written by a Michigan fan of all things.

251 ...

we went into a packed original oyster house on thursday ... actually, they all looked packed, except oysterella. OOH, although packed, was served quickly (almost 2 fast), and was a good meal.

Eltoro Freeman is pretty fired up about coming to Auburn. Jet, didn't you give him a nickname yesterday? Here is Freeman's quote:

I heard Coach Chizik has coached three Thorpe Award winners, well damn, he better get ready to coach a Dick Butkus Award winner. It's on now!" Freeman said. "We're coming back. Me and the boys are coming! I'm ready! WAR DAMN EAGLE! I just can't wait to be a part of the Auburn Family."

Just Win, on rivals.com it shows that he was recruited by Al Borges and committed in '06. What happened?

7:54 AM  
Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

I did a little digging and answered my own question. He sat out a year to save a year of eligibily.

8:00 AM  
Blogger Just Win AU said...

He didn't qualify, had to go to JUCO.

8:06 AM  
Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

Thanks, Just Win. When he says, "Me and the boys...," who are "the boys"?

I guess the current players and the incoming players - that's all I can think of.

Scottie B, I might take another shirt. That way I have a back up when the other one is in the wash...

Blogger depressedAUfan said...

Evan Woodberry had an article stating Callaway had been contacted by Auburn about the OC job but was going to stay at UAB. Besides being thankful he turned AU down, I cannot believe Chizik chose him on his own. Is he having final say-so on coaches or is all of this pre-arranged?

8:20 AM  
Blogger Just Win AU said...

Depressed, I am very concerned about the staff. I know a lot of people want former players or coaches back at AU and while I think that is a good idea for some, I sincerely hope that this staff is not 100% former players or coaches. If it is I guarantee you Chizik agreed to let someone pick his staff. No way is Calloway the best OC that AU can get - NO WAY!!!

8:22 AM  
Blogger Just Win AU said...

*Callaway

Blogger depressedAUfan said...

Just Win, I agree that Searels, Garner, etc. are proven coaches and recruiters and would love to see them return. We are in DESPERATE need for a proven, innovative OC, and Neal Callaway is the guy? No way with the avaliable OC's out there would Chizik choose this guy. I am very concerned.

Just for wondering sake - who are the available OC's? I've heard Nix's name mentioned, and Callaway (although I'm glad to see he wants to remain a HC).
