Looking forward to some good stuff the next few days. Will there be any attempted arrests this year?

Nevermind jet, that looks like a "nice" restaurant.

My rugrats in nice restaurants produce shenanigans akin to Jake & Elwood in Chez Paul.

(the reviews I saw were virtually all 5 stars)

I'll be there Aug 5-7 for a conference. Firefly is my dinner plan one night after a special "18-part" environmental study.

I learned today not to accidentally copy an HR manager on a personal email that contains the letters WTF.

Eff yeah, though, FOOTBALL season is here.

nice work PF. ha.

PF - WTF means Why the Face right? At least that would be my explanation to HR.

Dude, I LOVE 18 part environmental studies. Can't believe I'm gonna miss it.

Anyone tried that mint firefly yet?? Havent' been able to find it. Buy yourself a 4 pack of le fin du monde. It's a new beer we have deemed appropriate to emancipate here in Alabama.

anyone else listening to 740 today online? their feed is horrid today.

Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

nope, but I did get to watch the last 30 minutes of the Tour.

11:00 AM  
Blogger Monica said...

yep, it was a very bad connection for me too, Scottie

11:00 AM  
Blogger scottie b in tennessee said...

THT, between the scratchy connection i think i heard that Lance is back down to 5th place in the tour. is that correct? he was only 1:37 back from first last nite.

oh, well Mon. i'll click over to secsports.com later today when the interviews start.

11:02 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Lance is 4th The Schleck brothers passed him today. He may be able to catch them in the time trial while holding off teammate Kloden and the Brit, Wiggins, both of whom are excellent time trial riders. There's a huge climb on Saturday. It's a certainty Contador will win the Tour, barring a catastrophe, but the other spots on the podium are completely unsettled.

11:05 AM  
Blogger Norm said...

740 stream is frequently crappy for me.

11:09 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I would choose talk radio over an onion, but not much else

11:12 AM  
Blogger scottie b in tennessee said...

wow. Lance lost over 2 minutes today. now behind the leader by 3:55.

back in college i did my share of mountain biking and road biking. there wasn't anything scarier to me than almost being run off the road by an 18-wheeler while in full spandex attire. thus, i have a very pretty and expensive decoration hanging in my garage.

Blogger scottie b in tennessee said...

nice Sensi. aren't you headed to Media Days?

11:21 AM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Sensi..

I disagree about LSU's schedule. They have a very tough in conference schedule this year.

At UGA
Florida the next week
Auburn always plays them tough
At Alabama
At Ole Miss

They may be the most talented but they won't win the west IMO.

11:23 AM  
Blogger Sensi said...

No media days for me, fellas. Packing up and moving.

11:24 AM  
Blogger scottie b in tennessee said...

that's what i was thinking. that's an awfully busy week.

11:25 AM  
Blogger Sensi said...

Good points, FSJ.

My pick for LSU is a product of the opinions expressed on the blog and of a desire to bet the other way from what most experts are saying. That road schedule is tough, but manageable.

I don't expect any team to get out of the SEC unscathed this year.

11:27 AM  
Blogger Sensi said...

And before I get skewered for it, I took a long hiatus, but have dropped my protests and decided to return to what is generally a reasonable place to discuss Auburn, the SEC, puppets, and recipes.

:-)

11:28 AM  
Blogger jhag said...

GO TIME....ooooooooo yes

11:40 AM  
Blogger §teve From Columbia said...

Protests? We don't need no stinking protests!!! I am officially protesting protests until the protests stop.

11:40 AM  
Blogger Sean said...

What were you protesting, Sensi?

11:43 AM  
Blogger Sensi said...

Insanity, Sean.

No worries. I'm glad to smell football in the air again.

Feel free to agree or disagree with my take on the SEC.

11:46 AM  
Blogger scottie b in tennessee said...

i'm not going to believe in Ole Miss until i see it. their favorable schedule makes me believe they can be an average SEC team and make it out 9-3, though. beat Bama and/or LSU and i'll sip the Hotty Toddy kool-aid. till them i'm a hater!

speaking of, HATE BAMA!

11:48 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

SEC media circus interests me even less than high school kids' unofficial visits. I have no doubt JayGT's reporting & writing prowess will turn a yawner into something interesting. Of course, some fisticuffs between Little Kiffin and any other coach couldn't hurt, either.

12:02 PM  
Blogger §teve From Columbia said...

I like LSU in the west.

Bama's strength last season was their running game. They lost a lot on the offensive line and won't be able to repeat that performance. They also have a new QB.

Ole Miss is Ole Miss and were inconsistent. They lost to Vandy and South Carolina if I remember correctly. They are my number 2 choice because I think they will likely lose a game they shouldn't.

12:03 PM  
Blogger §teve From Columbia said...

I am assuming that Jefferson will be the man at LSU and that Chavis will have LSU back to form defensively.

12:03 PM  
Blogger §teve From Columbia said...

I should also mention another thing. I think the Miles, at some point, is going to make a Dubosian decision that costs his team dearly. I have been waiting for it.

12:11 PM  
Blogger Sensi said...

I've done it myself so, this next comment is as much for me as it is for anyone else.

It is very passe to criticize Les Miles as a kook or idiot. The man can coach. He can recruit talent in players and coaches.

Let's end this Les Miles is Crazy thing.

12:15 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Everyone says Miles is crazy and he's going to make a bad call at some point...but he hasn't done it yet at LSU.

Until he does it, I think he's a good/great coach.

12:22 PM  
Blogger scottie b in tennessee said...

agreed Sensi. just b/c he can't choose the correct cap size doesn't mean he's a kook. he just may look like one. ;)

12:23 PM  
Blogger Monica said...

Les Miles is crazy.

12:29 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

He's a winner...I'd take crazy on our sidelines with the tiny kids cap as long as we win games at the clip that LSU seems to be winning them.

12:31 PM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

I kinda like the Les Miles is crazy thing. It's fun. Plus its an easier way to explain his luck. And you must agree that that man is rather lucky. Well you don't have to agree. But ya could

12:37 PM  
Blogger Monica said...

exactly

not to mention, i think all head coaches are a little crazy. you'd have to be a little nuts to do that job.

12:38 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I think LSU will win the SECW, despite their schedule, because my upbringing won't allow me to say who I really think has the inside track.

I hate 'em even more now.

12:41 PM  
Blogger Monica said...

Why are media days held in B'ham?

12:47 PM  
Blogger Sensi said...

New threads are up.

SEC HQ is in B'Ham, Mon.
