The Daily Thread: Tuesday

Hey everyone. I have five days remaining in my Gannett-mandated furlough.

See Sunday's entry for more details.

Please feel free to discuss issues as usual in the comment section. I hate this it has come to this, but it has. I blame shady politicians. They knew we were headed down a slippery slope, yet they did nothing to stop it.

Fight the power!

Furlough does suck. I did a little research on this ... and it's not the Advertiser's fault.

It's his parent company, which requires local papers to give a TON of money to "corporate" before handling their own needs. A lot of that cash goes to frivolous or money-losing enterprises that full under the parent company's umbrella.

So now the money's gone and the parent company has to "find money" through other means.

12:25 PM  
Blogger Criminal Type said...

I don't see how Fannin is going to be a front-line guy with all these other guys around.

If he can't manage to hold off McCalebb and Tate this season, which I consider unlikely, then he'll have Aycock and B. Jacobs and perhaps D. Oku as well.

Fannin just isn't that good.

I'm getting way behind at work. One of the 2 computers essential for getting work done has crashed. Fortunately, HABOTN is on the working computer (Yea!). Unfortunately, I have to go to another room frequently until both computers are up (boo!)

12:34 PM  
Blogger Will said...

I don't see Jacobs being a threat this yr, he'll most likely redshirt. Tate is just sooooo sloooooow. After watching the GMAC bowl I think Fannin has a role in this offense. Not a premier guy, but he will get some touches. I think PPL and Ont McCalleb will do well. Question is, where does E. Smith fit in? I think he is the misfit here.

As one who worked in the corporate world before softly landing in the service of the people, I presume the Gannettoids send in a truck every week to pick up the Advertiser's love offering. They're asking for more and more and it's likely not there.

The hope here -- for one that wants a viable paper in the Gump -- is that a positive local interest purchases it for a song. I'm afraid that will never happen.

I must agree with the Criminal. Fannin hasn't blown my skirt up yet.

If E. Smith lost a few lbs maybe he would increase his speed. Then Bramlett could say..."Eric Smith fumbled the handoff, but he was running really fast when he did it!"

12:43 PM

And I was just kidding about E. Smith's role. I think he'll be on the field for a dozen or so snaps/game.

12:44 PM  
Blogger Will said...

I like Fannin, but I don't think he is a go to guy. He was the only guy on the field last yr that could take it the distance. We didn't even have WRs that could outrun opposing defenders.

12:45 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

I thought Swinton was one of the fastest guys on the field. He could run away from anything, even passes thrwon his way

12:47 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Fannin would be perfect for a grind it out offense (if he didn't hang the ball out ready to fumble at any time). The guy is a load to take down and has the ability to break the big one. He would be pretty special if he got the ball 20 times a game (once again, without fumbling).

I don't know if he will do much of anything in the spread offense, though. He's not really a "make a guy miss" runner.

Will our dear leader, Jay G, be doing any baseball coverage on Sunday, or only women's basketball? I swear I'll keep asking this question until someone tells me the answer that I don't want to hear, which is "The games overlap, and he's already said he's covering one the few remaining women's bball home games, so there will be no baseball coverage.

Junks,

I'm not sure I've ever seen a situation where that would happen. In the pro's the DH surely would never pitch (and vice versa), and when I played HS ball, the pitchers batted (not sure if its the same now). I have no idea of the college ruling on such a situation. All I know is that he's a DH (or maybe 1B), and they've discussed putting him in the closer role. Surely, they don't want to lose his bat, though.

ok Peter here are the rules for DH playing a position after being DH...

The designated hitter may not play a field position and he may only be replaced by another player not currently in the lineup. However, the designated hitter may change positions to become a position player at any point during the game; if he does so, his team forfeits the role of the designated hitter and the pitcher, another player, or a pinch hitter must bat in the newly-opened spot in the batting order. The designated hitter could also become the pitcher, in which case the pitcher or a pinch hitter must hit when that spot in the batting order comes up again. Likewise, if a pinch-hitter bats for some other player (such as, hypothetically, the first baseman) and then remains in the game as the pitcher, the team would forfeit the use of the DH for the remainder of the game.

Senator, I have prepared an 1100 page document on the subject, but you are a senator and thus don't have time to read it. Let me boil down the issue for you (just trust me. don't worry about the 1100 page document):

1. Is it alright for a head coach at the college level to actively pursue other jobs?
2. Does such pursuit constitute a betrayal by the coach?
3. In what ways is moving from college coaching to the NFL different from moving from a coordinator position to head coach?
4. Was either side morally wrong?


And Jet, all the League of Puppets cares about is making sure you bite your own fingers off. That is why they are considered evil.

Hi All to the HOTTIES!

Michael:

Thank you for sharing your concerns with me. It is a pleasure to hear the thoughts of my constituents. I never forget that I work for you.

Let me be perfectly clear, from the caves of Pakistan to the shores of Guantanamo Bay, we will win the War on Puppets.

The only thing we have to fear is another coach defecting to UAT.

Ask not what Gene Chizik can do for you, but what you can do for Gene Chizik to help win championships.

Mr. Saban, tear down your evil Red Elephant Club.

Read my lips: I hate UAT.

I don't have relations with that blog -- HABOTN.

Mission Accomplished!

Sincerely,

Sen. Jet Jetarsky

Jet...what a nice segue into the nearing Puppet Hour.

Can the puppets discuss the BC coach situation succinctly?

Mdaniel ... I held a special election last week ... and if we get to stimulus crazy, I might have to form my exploratory committee for 2012.

You can't listen to puppets. They lie, persuade and cheat you into believing they are right. That leads to fingers being bitten off

I was recently called a "Kool-Aid" drinker. Is this a bad thing? I am an unabashed Auburn fan. From my perspective, it's always sunny on the Plains. I'm a fan, not a (supposedly unbiased) sportswriter. Forget objectivity, I love Auburn!!!!

Anyone seen our 2/12/2009 depth chart on Rivals? I'm sure this is just speculation but it's kinda interesting.

FB John Douglas is now listed as a 3rd string WR. Andre Wadley who was pretty sick for most of last season is listed as a 3rd string DT. (note: Nick Fairley is not listed so I'm sure that will change). Da'Shaun Barnes who never saw the field last year is listed as a 2nd string LB behind Eltoro Freeman.

I have been a kool-aid drinker since I was young. And there is one thing I know for sure: it is hard to get that kool-aid stain off the wooden spoon without the assistance of a dish washer.

This may not be the same kool-aid talked about here, but I am not much for metaphors and similes and such. I guess you could say I am as uninterested in similes as a person who is not interested in similes.

After re-reading Jay G's intro, I am highly offended, blaming his plight on shady politicians.

Remember Thomas Jefferson's words: "The tree of liberty is refreshing, thanks to shady politicians."

i thought the green kool-aid was super-underrated and grap is super over-rated. Strawberry is just right

strawberry = best kool-aid
black cherry = second best
grape = also ran
BC Coaching situation = a conundrum for our times which highlights some of the most basic assumptions we make about human nature and the football programs we follow
green = green???? who drinks green kool-aid??

After we end the war on puppets, can we get facebook thrown off the internets forever? I think my wife thinks she married Facebook and not me

4:23 PM  
Blogger Criminal Type said...

Sorry, Harrison, I'll stop messaging so often.

4:24 PM  
Blogger michael said...

They passed an amendment that made it illegal to marry someone of the same sex, or a turtle, or facebook, so I don't know what the heck your wife is thinking, Harrison. No offense, bu she might be a little slow when it comes to amendments.

Jhag, unless he shows up big at the combine, don't see it. He had an unimpressive season to me. His timing on leaving for the NFL didn't make much sense to me.

6:18 PM

jhag, he never had a 100 yard rushing game at Auburn.

OK, Am I missing the BIG picture or am I just catching on that Criminal Type is our unemployed (1 Week) leader?
If i'm out of the loop on this please let me know. I just got such a kick out of our oyster-fisherman.

Leach is under contract for 2 more seasons at $2.6 mil/year. The new contract offer is for around the same amount/year and includes a provision that Leach must get approval before interviewing for another job. Leach countered at $4.4 mil/yr.

Leach says he is under contract for another 2 years and that is just fine with him.

J-Z,

I hate to say it but I think you're wrong. Have you noticed that he posts more for free than he does getting paid!
I think we need to call in Senator Jet for an investigation of this blantant non-abuse of Ganette resources.

I spoke with Jay GT before the exile and he specifically stated that Jay G Tate would not be posting this week. Besides, Criminal's posts so lack the keen insight and wit of Jay GT.
(No offense intended CT, my posts are even weaker)

THT,
the give away was excellent use of the english language and for some odd reason the love of all things English or Ausy. He loves the soccer and Yueling.
I don't know his wife but CT said she was HOOOOOT!
Sounds like a husband in love the day after Valentines.
