Auburn received with a Hummer


Hey everyone. Auburn's gauche splashy limousine gimmick has morphed into something more high class.

Our friends at AuburnSports.com are reporting that the Tigers' coaches, in the midst of a barnstorming tour across the state, have upgraded their transportation. The standard limousine has been replaced by a Hummer.

This whole thing seems odd to me.

Will it generate attention? You betcha.

Is it the right kind of attention? We shall see.

This limo thing goes right with what Mary Kay Ash, founder of the cosmetics company, said:

"A mediocre idea that generates enthusiasm will go further than a great idea that inspires no one."

12:33 PM

Examples of great ideas inspiring no one:

Crystal Pepsi
Calling Jordan-Hare "The Jungle"
Flat tax rates

Jay G,

If and when it occurs, there will be an official copy notarized by the Secretary of the Senate. I will obtain it for you and I guess I'll drive it down to the Agonizer. It might take a day for that to be ready.

New Coke was an Epic Failure along the lines of the Edsel for those of my parents' generation.

Crystal Pepsi was just a garden variety failure.

Unless, of course, you buy into the theory that Coke knew exactly what it was doing.

They didn't know at the time but it certainly worked out for the best.

If the limo were houndtooth patterned and had a crimson A on the side, you'd have every knuckle-draggin', cousin-humper taking their Earnhardt shrines down off the wall to get the soon-to-be crafted Daniel Moore print of Saban standing on a stepstool so he could actually see out of the sunroof.

What's off about sending all of your assistants to one high school at a time? That's brilliant. Forget the limo "prop" as you media guys have pegged it.

New Coke was an elaborate scheme by the Marketing geniuses at Coca-Cola to sever their relationship with Bill Cosby. Once they got him to say "I like it better" how could they go back to him? That's my conspiracy theory for the day.

if something has so many bammers riled up and calling it stupid, it must be smart.

its the Constanza Principle: whatever your natural intuition tells you is right, do the opposite.

all the bammers and slimebaums bashing the limo are playing right into luper's hands simply by talking about it and showing recruits the type of fan they will be playing in front of if they go to tuscaloser. if a recruit says he likes the limo, then, by extension, bama fans are calling those recruits stupid as well.

Note: Being in SW bama, I have noticed our QB signee, Leroys Clint Mosely is one heck of a baseball player, Coach P, should check him out since he will be redshirted this fall anyway.

Who was the last baseball/football cross over at Auburn? My memory it was Josh Sullivan, right? backup QB and pitcher on the baseball team.

2:31 PM

Baseball team still could qualify for Hoover, sure.

It's going to take a big turnaround, but that team has enough offense. If the pitching gets 25% better, they could sneak in as a 7 or 8 seed.

Harrison - interestingly (to me at least), my son and I went to a local muni-park near the house this Saturday to watch some kids playing baseball. Well, mostly my son got to watch, I was too busy watching him making sure he didn't get into the dugout or do something he shouldn't. Anyway, as it turns out for 15 minutes I was standing right next to Javy Lopez and didn't even realize it since my attention was focused on the boy.

Thanks war,
It's the old standard I keep comin' back to. Yours is pretty outstanding as well. Looks like he's just waiting to pounce on an elephant.

I think people are underestimating the genius of this 'Tiger Prowl' tour! Apparently the coaches can not actually talk to recruits. They dont have to. Everyone is talking to them about Auburn and talking about Auburn football/recruiting...BRILLIANT!!!

Think about it, fans, haters, sportscasters, etc. may like it or hate it, but two points:

1. Its being talked about regardless.

2. The kids like it. Here in Mobile it went over like gangbusters. Note: I dont know what that means I just have always heard it used.

We will have to one-up this every year to keep making splash. By 2012, I foresee the coaches traveling around in a boat being towed by the Oscar Meyer Wiener-mobile being driven by a guy in a Chewbacca costume while the coaches hold a continuous toga party on the top deck with guests including but not limited to Barbara Streisand, 50 Cent, and Alicia Silverstone.

That'll get the recruits talking!

When they land a helicopter on the practice field at a local high school I will be impressed.

I can report that earlier this afternoon the Alabama Senate by acclamation, per Rule 78, passed a resolution sponsored by Sen. Steve French of Birmingham honoring Jay G. Tate and HABOTN.

A certified copy, suitable for framing, will be available either tomorrow afternoon or Thursday a.m., and will be given to Jay G.

One of us will post the final text of the resolution when it becomes available. A great legislative victory for the people.
