Throw another shimp on the (television) barbe

Hey everyone. The Southeastern Conference just announced that Fox Sports Net has brokered a new television deal. FSN actually negotiated with ESPN, which bought the rights to SEC football this time last year.

Anyway, the FSN family of networks (Fox Sports South, Sun Sports and Fox Sports Southwest) now will exclusively televise nine live football games each season -- beginning this fall.

If you want to know about times, well, I don't have that information just yet.

Here's what the entire deal includes:
  • Seven live, exclusive football games (presumably non-conference tilts)
  • 20 men’s basketball games
  • 24 women’s basketball games (16 regular season, eight tournament)
  • 16 baseball games (10 regular season, six tournament)
  • 24 additional Olympic sporting events (softball, volleyball, soccer, gymnastics)

I'm not a Scarbo fan, but his recent article has me worried that if this weekend doesn't produce significant results, we may truly seem to be lacking recruiting substance.

All of the noise is great, but if you are making noise and don't back it up with results, the deflation could be huge.

I realize that these coaches have a challenge to start recruiting for AU in a completely different manner that the previous guys, but when you put yourself way out've got to either deliver or be subject to valid ridicule from the outside.

Mon...dang you've got a good memory. Stud muffin is mostly a sarcastic comment utilized by Hoopette.

WTC..I hit a lot of homeruns back in the day. Almost every one was the result of a technically correct swing coupled with 20/10 eyesight. Swinging "for the fence" breaks down the fundamentals and ususally result in a glorious.....pop fly.

For the record, I never said that these guys shouldn't be doing what they're doing. I'm saying that their overt style had better work or they have set themselves up for valid ridicule from all of the other SEC team recruiting.

Can we get a preview of your Top 25 Jay G? Also, what is your philosophy going to be on the preseason poll? Vote for the actual best teams, or vote where you think they will end up? Will you allow teams to move up or down during a bye week? Can a team near the top be leapfrogged by better performing team even though the team being leapfrogged didn't lose? Will you be open to doing a total reassessment of your poll every week, or will it be based on last week's poll with the only changes being driven by wins and losses?

Let's pretend we are holding a Supreme Court nominee confirmation hearing:

How would you have voted in 2007 when a two loss LSU team leapfrogged a two loss Georgia team after winning the SEC Championship?

In 2006, would you have voted the consensus "best two teams" at number 1 and number 2 after the championship games (Michigan and Ohio St), or would you have had someone else at the number 2 spot?

Unlike some folks on here, I am OK with the JCCW. In fact, I found the HABOTN b/c of the JCCW. The guy generally throws out opinions and provides handy links to support where he gathered data to form the opinion.

Eddie...the JCCW makes a very clear argument for possibly burning TR's redshirt year this season and makes some good points. My problem with his opinion is that it assumes CGC and AU are in a make it or break it situation this year. Is it that critical this season? Are we doomed to the cellar for years to come if we don't turn it around this year? Call me naive, but I just don't think so.

Hey, Hotties, just wanted to let you know Geno is on his way home. For those of you that live in the Bham area, I highly recommend Dr. Ballagas. He is so personable and when we told him that money was an issue (even though we would have paid it no matter what it was; we just would have to put it all on credit cards), he said, "If you were to tell me that you were on your last dime, I would still what was right for this dog." For his second surgery and all the care they gave him for his degloving injury, the total cost was almost $1200. He only charged us $300! You don't see that much anymore. We were so touched and appreciative.

AU1292 - Cheating? HA! Tuberville & co. played by the rules. Besides, our record last year is proof there wasn't any cheating.

Trust me, most, if not all, programs cheat. To what extent is another question. But I wouldn't be surprised if $20 handshakes were going on at any point during Tub's tenure or if they were going on now by certain AU coaches...

Over 10 years, I had several handshakes with Tommy Tuberville, I never got $20.

Was I shaking the wrong hand? If so, I missed out on a few free meals.

My hats off to Eddie & Sensi on a good show last night. I listened to it this afternoon, you guys did a great job.

listen to the rantings of twelve ninety-two
telling me just what a fool i've been
to trust that Tubs was playing by the rules
and think Chiz isn't without sin

Hate to hear about the lawsuit. hopefully it will be settled and no mudslinging goes on. I hear the Ramsey's just think the trainers ruined Chaz's health by making him workout while the surgeon said no workouts.

You were talking about the 1996 UAB game, it was that moment that I knew Terry Bowden was on borrowed time. We we struggled putting the ball in the endzone vs UAB and had almost zero running game to start the season, it became apparent to a lot of people he wasn't who we needed on the sideline.

Jaret Holmes was our offense that day hitting several long FG's.

I can't find anything about Seastrunk not coming. My friend at AU says as of last night he is still coming.
He does however think Seastrunk and Reed both go to LSU. Dyer comes to AU and Grant goes to UAT.

Someone keep 1292 away from the window.

Your recall for game detail is mind boggling.

Sadly it really has no benefits other than message boards or for the occasional trivia.

Well, I know this doesn't count for a darn thing, but it certainly impresses the heck out of me.

Devil's advocate here - if I was injured and as a 19 year old felt pressured to workout by the trainers and coaching staff even though doctors told me not to, and the result was a back injury that would last the rest of my life, then I would probably sue.

my boggling mind has been recalled for lame detail...and lamer posts.

Michael, you don't need to argue on behalf of $aban to convince me.

Was the surgery performed by an Auburn team doctor or a doctor that the Ramsey family chose? It seems like the therapy program should have been discussed between the doctor and the therapist, whoever it was.

1:45 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

So are we debating a lawsuit that is actually going to exist or just a random posting from someone who seems to only post something negative that might happen based on rumor or something they came up with?

1:46 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I believe bammer Evan had an article about it right around signing day. From what I recall, and I believe this was the Ramsey side of the story, the doctor did give specific instructions which were not followed by the training staff.

1:48 PM  
Blogger AU1292 said...

The surgery was performed by a doctor that Auburn recommended. When he came back to rehab after surgery the AU training staff gave him a plan that conflicted with that of what his doctor had laid out. Ramsey said that it was too aggressive and made things worse. Apparently AU's team doctor, Dr. Goodlett, was upset when he found out that the training staff wasn't following the surgeon's rehab plan and he told Ramsey to report straight to him for rehab.

WERK, probably the former, though right now the latter.

1292 do you have any kinfolk with a chili pepper impregnated cartilaginous skeleton on the dark side?

This is an actually suit that is is being filed. I have not read it from any websote, but a friend of the Ramsey family taold me about it today. I asked him about it after reading the post on here. He had told ne before that this was going to happen they were just getting the documentation togeher. I think an announcement of the suit is forth coming shortly.

1:53 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

Lawsuit will be settled out of court and the Ramsey family will get paid. Moving on...what do we think about La Tech. Bowl team, beat MSU last year. Thoughts on our opener?

1:55 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

LaTech isn't a pushover, but I have no idea what they have back from last year.

If we have any kind of offense, it shouldn't be much of a problem to win by a couple of TD's. That's a big "if".

ha @ Seanzie Way to try to bring it back to present day football.

If I was a 19 yr old with enough intelligence to go to college, I would hopefully have enough self confidence in my ability to understand what the Docs say to tell the coaches no. If that action resulted in me losing a scholly....then I would sue and have more reasonable grounds for such.

2:01 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

I think we'll win easy. Even without a big offense. We could run the zone read with Tate and Co and probably win. Teams like La Tech don't do things like beat SEC teams every year. They just don't.

2:01 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

I'm beggin y'all to quit talking about litigation. Football please!

2:02 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

If LaTech has an established QB, then I am seriously concerned. We may not yet have figured out our offensive identity (i.e. QB), and you know Dooley would love to beat up on the guy who got the job.

2:03 PM

just sews y'all know, I'm really hatin bama this afternoon.

2:04 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

Hmmm this is troubling...their entire roster starters are Srs almost. Including a 3yr QB. I'm not as confident as I was 5 minutes ago.

2:04 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

LaTech had a pretty good run of beating Alabama and putting a scare on us back in the late 90's/early 00's.

That overtime game in 2001 the week after we beat Florida was a huge collapse on our part as Cobb couldn't find a blue jersey after we went up 31-7.

If DT doesn't get that pick in OT we might still be playing.

2:05 PM  
Blogger AU1292 said...

La Tech returns all 5 offensive linemen, their all WAC running back, their QB, and their best receiver. Needless to say, most of their offensive power is returning, how much power they have is yet to be determined. And trust me I would love to post some positive news, but that seems to be lacking on the Auburn front as of late.

AU1292, can you change your name to "Black Death" or something more appropriate?
