Auburn fans have watched their school endure its fair share of criticism lately.

Now comes troublesome news for a few other programs.

This sports agent caused exodus is pretty funny. I'm writing a microeconomic thesis on the expiration of the NFL CBA, and haven't found any credibility in a rookie salary cap for 2010.

2:40 PM  
Blogger The SeanZ said...

Peter, regarding the NFL. The current collective bargaining agreement expires prior to the 2010 season. One of the things that will be explored before they renew the agreement will be a rookie salary ladder. This is brought on by the veteran players salary levels vs. some of the players who have never played a second in an NFL game. It's not a definite thing that will happen but it is on the agenda. There is also a possibility that 2010, if no agreement is reached, will be an uncapped year. So there are many different things that could happen in regard to the NFL and the collective bargaining agreement.

The Harvin loss is big for UF.

They will need Jacobs, Rainey, or Demps to step into that role.

2:44 PM  
Blogger The SeanZ said...

Mr. Sensible, I am excited about the possibility of Harvin making a debut in Titan blue for next year! I've seen him coming to us on a many a draft board. But that is a huge loss for UF.

Like I said in the earlier thread ... thanks to those of you who listened to my gig today.

Radio is pretty fun.

2:46 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

yeah, I'm aware of that, but it looks like there is a FAR greater possibility of an uncapped year for 2010 (which will probably lead to a lockout because the smaller market teams aren't going to be able to afford what happens) than a rookie salary cap for that year.

I doubt very seriously that 2010 will end up being uncapped. As far as the rookie salary ladder, I'm in a "I'll believe it when I see it" mode.

Sensi,

In the last presser with Fisher, the question was asked if VY would be on the roster next season. The reply was "why wouldn't he be? I've said from week one that VY will be back under center for us in the future." Regarding what's being said behind closed doors, I don't know. What I do know is there is no pressing need to move Vince THIS offseason per his cap number.

and now for a public service announcement:
The Auburn Diamond Dolls have set up the `Strike Out Cancer Run' to be held on February 14th in honor of Auburn baseball coach John Pawlowski's daughter, Mary-Louise, who is battling primitive neuroectodermal tumors, a rare form of childhood cancer. All proceeds from the run will be donated to the East Alabama Medical Center Foundation in the name of Mary-Louise and set aside for the EAMC Cancer Center.

"The Diamond Dolls want to show the Pawlowski family that the entire Auburn community supports them and are continuously thinking and praying for Mary-Louise," said Diamond Dolls President Megan Collins. "Since Coach Pawlowski is a runner, we decided to put on a 5K run in Mary-Louise's honor. This is a great opportunity for the community and all Auburn University students to come out and support a great cause."

"Cancer is a very serious illness that affects many people," John Pawlowski said. "We hope to have a great turnout for this event and help support our effort to "Strike Out Cancer". I ran the New York City Marathon this past fall to help raise money for the hospital that treats Mary-Louise and now I would like the Auburn community to join me in raising money for the EAMC Cancer Center, keeping all of the proceeds here in Auburn-Opelika."

Those wishing to participate may signup online at www.AU4MLP.com.

The 5K run/walk will begin at 9am CT on the 14th and will be preceeded by a Kids Fun Run at 8:30am. Late Registration will be held on the morning of the run from 7-8:30 am.

Pre-registration must be postmarked by February 7 and each pre-registered participant will receive a t-shirt. The Pre-registration fee is $15 while it is $20 the day of the run. Cash or checks should be made payable to the Diamond Dolls.

The race will begin and end at the right field gate of Plainsman Park and take runners through the Auburn campus.

Anything new on Demond Washington looking at AU instead of OleMiss and is Emory Blake for sure visiting this weekend...he is a 4 star by rivals and ESPN has him as one of their top WR

So Rueben Randle's dad is saying that they have no intrest in AU...that stinks...I would not blame him for going to OK with Bradford coming back and their losses at WR

OK, I am alone on here so I am just posting to myslef....But I want to say congrats to Ben Bostick the WR from B'Ham...he broke his leg this season and was only getting talk from UAB and Troy...He made the Choice to go to Navy instead...I think its great when kids go to the military universities.

In reference Demond Washington, Goldberg said that he heard the recording of the interview and Washington definitely said he was thinking about switching his commitment to AU.

I will say one thing, if you had to live here, at least you could have some fun road trips with all the big cities that are within a 5 hour drive. I know I would. It was a very pretty drive. I came up thru Chattanooga, Knoxville, Bristol and thru the Shanadoah Valley. It was neat. The last time I remotely came close was when I was driving an Auburn equipment truck all night long to Charlottesville for the 97 Virginia game.

Bastrop (La.) four-star defensive tackle DeQuinta Jones has added his name to the Auburn official visitor list for this weekend - Rivals

And ESPN talks like he may become a DT more than a DE once he develops.

I am still intrigued by the WR from Austin...Emory Blake...ESPN said he does not have the speed, but great body control and steady hands.... yet all his highlights are him catching screens and end arounds.

Frankenbummer, that is what the old lady said when we bought a bunch of azaleas and other stuff for about 600 bucks last year. How can plants cost so much?

Peter, I have no comment.

Jay,
That may be the most accurate description of the gump that I have ever heard. I moved away to the beach for about 5 years and somehow ended back here. What a cruel cruel life.

Free Trooper.

I got a 89 Beretta when I turned 16....but it was over 10 years old by that time

...and was it the car or the gun?

Keep in mind, I am originally from Arab. The Gump is quite different. Quite.
But, I did live in Macon, GA for 4 years while in college...
It is uncanny the similarities between the two cities. Same architecture, same demographic, same road grid... It's like a frickin' mirror.

Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Alan, I am sorry for you.

The goal is to move toward the beach, not away.

9:44 PM  
Blogger MillerTime said...

ok...5 years... whatever...

Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

One of the big car magazines did a story one time comparing a Chevy Beretta to the 9mm version -- complete with 0-60 times.

Very clever.

Chuck Norris is in the corner staring at me....I must go outside....Yall dont start a radio show without me

Albany,Ga and Jackson,Ms are mirrors of the gump also.

That's not a compliment to either of the parties involved.

Blogger MillerTime said...

I think I'd put Albany more in line with Dothan than the Gump... But, I only visited All-Benny a few times.

9:48 PM  
Blogger Alan said...

Its a bastion of depression, that's what Albany is.

At least Dothan is close to the beaches. Has to be less crime too.

You got something against a good southern drawl Mon?

9:50 PM  
Blogger Monica said...

No suh.

9:51 PM  
Blogger MillerTime said...

that's another thing that the Gump and Macon have in common... the crime rate.
Oh, they both have rivers that flow through them, and they both have famous dead singers buried there.
Uncanny I say... Uncanny.

9:52 PM  
Blogger MillerTime said...

By the way... there aren't any B'ham to Gump commuters out there in the HABOTN world is there?
That commute will be a lot better if I could split it with someone.

9:55 PM  
Blogger Monica said...

That's a heckova commute.

10:01 PM  
Blogger MillerTime said...

It's about an hourish...

10:05 PM  
Blogger JetZenkirchen said...

Don't be hatin' on the Gump.

10:07 PM  
Blogger Monica said...

uh oh - y'all are in for it now...

The wrath of Jet.

10:08 PM  
Blogger JetZenkirchen said...

MillerT ... I have a co-worker who commutes ... don't know his arranges, but I can find out if you're interested.

10:08 PM  
Blogger JetZenkirchen said...

Apropos to nothing ... but Pete Carroll acted like a tool about Sanchez.

10:09 PM  
Blogger MillerTime said...

I won't be moving until May... so the commuting won't start until then... but, I would be interested in splitting up the gas costs if possible.

Where do you work Jet?

10:12 PM  
Blogger MillerTime said...

I saw PC's comments... he acted like a spurned lover.

10:12 PM  
Blogger Alan said...

Rule #1 of the Gump: you can't hate on it unless you're from there.

That's how we roll.
