Days to kickoff: 9

Our Tar Heel Tiger's Auburn Minute is brought to you by the number:

9


HAPPY POWELL-DAVIS DAY!!!

Tommie Powell: A native of Greenville, Ala., who lettered in 1983-86 and made First Team ALL-SEC Free Safety in 1985. He also led the Tigers that year with six interceptions. His biggest game was a three-interception effort in the 1985 blowout loss in Knoxville.

Tristan Davis: An East Point, Ga., native who changed positions more often than jersey numbers. He played safety, kick returner, running back, and probably five other positions I don't recall. Tristan was a huge fan favorite who exploded onto the Auburn scene in 2005 with a 162-yard rushing game (on just 8 carries) against the Kentucky Wildcats. His career 27-yard average on kickoff returns (min. 25 returns) is an Auburn record. He had a approximately 97 yard kickoff return against Arkansas which I think was negated by non-contributory penalty. Unfortunately, his full football potential was never realized at Auburn due to repeated injuries.

HONORABLE MENTION:


* Roger Pruett: Place kicker and punter who lettered in 1971-73. The first two years he backed up Gardner Jett and David Beverly at those positions. He earned his 15 minutes of fame as the team's leading punter and scorer in 1973, piling up 17 PATs and 4 FGs as part of an offensive jugger...NOT!

MENTION:

* Anthony Mix: Bay Minette native who sometimes played wideout, sometimes played tight end and occasionally returned kicks. Mix had a great play in the 2004 game at Mississippi State; he broke free from a standing room only crowd of defenders and then outran all of them to the end zone for a 58-yard score. You can read about his high school and early Auburn exploits here and pro efforts/alleged misdeeds here.

* Ken Alvis: Demopolis native and free safety who had two PICK SIXES in 1994 as a redshirt freshman. He also made the first of Auburn's five fourth-quarter picks against LSU in 1994. BTW, what is it about LSU and their doofus play calling? Auburn's offense was absolutely pitiful in that game, gaining only one first down in the second half and scoring only three points the entire game. But Auburn's defense outscored the LSU offense 27-26 on that bizarre day. Alvis played only year at Auburn.

I guess everyone knows that AU did wear orange jerseys for a few games back in the Barfield era. It may have been mentioned; I haven't read everything this morning.

The first time was against GA in 1978. GA was undefeated and ranked in the top 3; AU was 6-3, but we had Cribbs and Andrews in the backfield. AU came out and warmed up in blue, none of the players suspected a thing unusual. They returned to the locker room and found orange jerseys laid out for them. Barfield said later that they got so excited that he thought that he might have made a mistake. He didn't.

AU played their best game of the season, and would have won if not for 2 bonehead calls by the officials. Andrews clearly scored on a long run on the last play of the first half, but the striped shirts waved it off. Then on 4th and a foot in the 4th quarter around the GA 35, Andrews went forward for about 2 yards. They gave him the worst spot in history and he didn't even get a first down. The game ended in a 22-22 tie.

I think they wore them one more game the next season. When Pat Dye came, he nixed the orange jerseys. So Eddie can say that AU does indeed have a tradition of wearing orange.

I still prefer the blue.

One of the blue ones should be laying around in the athletic complex. Maybe in the equipment room. JGT should try to do a little sneaking around and get a picture of it for proof.

They didn't really ask anything outlandish.

They asked me, as many people do, if I get free tickets to games. I always interpret that as them asking if my peeps get seats on the 50 free of charge.

I get in free, yes. I cannot drink.

We wore Orange for 3 games in the modern era. UGA game '78, a tie; MSU '79, a win; and '80 UGA, a loss. (see page 89 of David Housels book AU Football Vault)
Auburn did, however, where orange routinely prior to our current uni style which was introduced in the late '50's. (which, incedently, were designed by Arthur Fonzarelli - thus the "coolness" of the them)

Just caught up again after feeding my face. Norm, yes on your question on the previous thread concerning the Gainser; however, he no longer lives in Duluth. Now a resident in a condo on Peachtree street near, dare I say it, the campus of the insects. Also, Cincy, If I am not mistaken, and I am really scratching my head on this one, I believe that in the picture of the team in the Glom from way back when, what you think is black was actually the navy blue pants and stripes. Photog back then was light years back from what it is today. I have friends that think that the Chicago bears colors are black. Navy blue can look that way even on today's color TVs. The Bears blue is an even a deeper blue than ours. I saw the unis that you are talking about once when we played Clemson, in Mobile of all places, in the late 40s, maybe the early 50s and I think that I am correct about what appears black in that picture is really navy blue. At that age, around 10 or 11, you don't pay attention to those kinds of details. Those unis were alright, but I prefer Coach Jordan's take on it. Believe me, that man loved tradition but I think he liked to help create some of them. Amen, Brother Jet, Amen. I think the answer to the 7 jersey number is no one wore it before Sullivan. I can't remember any numbers below 10 until Sullivan played. I can also remember no 90s numbers for a long time. All of this evolved over the time college football went from 1 platoon to 2 platoon football. Used to not have as many players in 1 platoon. I am done and I know you are glad. Gotta go cut Mrs. IV's grass.

I went to bed real early last night, about 11 pm. So when MrsTHT's alarm went off at 4:30 EDT, I had been asleep plenty long. It's those nights I stay up after 1 that I find the 4:30 alarm disturbing. Of course, my iTunes always come on at about 4:50, so it's really only 20 minutes of being disturbed.

Of course, some would claim I've been disturbed my whole life.

After nine months I am ready for some College Football, mainly AUBURN FOOTBALL. It is hard not to be optomistic with a new year and new coaches. With our thin blue line we could be in trouble as the year goes forward but I still hold hope that it will at least be a good year. Some point out Cizik's record as a big negative but I believe that we learn more from adversity than some successes. I hope this is thrue with coach Cizik.

At least that's what I think, sometimes I try not to look in her general direction.

On the other hand, I've found there's little I can do to avoid UAT. So, I'm fairly well screwed there.

I just want the Hotties to know about a travesty that occurred yesterday on Auburn's campus. I am in a Sports in America class that is in the Sociology Department. Our professor showed us a video that he said explained why football in the South is so special. It was a documentary of Alabama's 1925 season and the 1926 Rose Bowl win over the University of Washington. It was terrible.

WDCWE,

I agree, tis a shame.

That brings up a sore point with me too! One of the bammer heros of that year was A T "Pooley" Hubert. He was a big deal with the bammers. He was my Physical Science teacher in high school and our high school football coach and old as dirt by then.

He would be put in jail today for the things he did back in the day. Seriously! For example to get our attention he would throw blackboard erasers at you to wake you up in his class....yes he was that borrriiing. He threw an eraser at the guy in front of me one day in class but got me instead. Didn't even say he was sorry. Probably would have caused physical harm to me if he had known I'd one day be an AU Tiger!!!!

He loved to make us girls squat. If we were one second late he would put us up front, draw a circle down real low on the black board and make us squat and put our nose in it. We would have to stay there for 10-15 minutes in the squatting position. I kid you not. I remember the agony in my thighs all too well. The guys in the class were in heaven to say the least. Remember that was in 1967 and mini skirts were well, mini.

To top it off he would open the window, tap his pipe on the sill to empty, reload with tobacco, light it and continue to puff while teaching!

But Mac's are sooo pretty....and cool. I wanna be pretty and cool!

Hmmm, never saw the Tristan Davis coming. He should be on a list of most injured.

What on earth possessed Rick Petino to hold that 2nd press conference and say such stupid, odd things??

WDCWE - hopefully, that professor wasn't tenured. He has to go! Regarding the telegraph thing, it could be that hatred was not at its highest level due to the fact that we didn't play Bammer back then. We were on the 40 year hiatus. GT was our big rival.

He was trying to make the case of why football is a matter of Southern Pride. Until then, Southern Conference teams had not beaten Eastern or Western teams of any consequence. It was a matter of Southern pride.

WDCWE,

One question, did everybody boo and hiss????

I'm sorry WDCWE, he's still gotta go.

You could certainly see why people in Auburn would be interested in how Alabama did in the game. It would be interesting to know whether they were cheering for Bammer. Scarily enough, I would guess that most of them were, probably due to the "southern pride" that you mentioned, and what I mentioned about not playing them back then. You could also equate it to cheering for SEC schools in bowl games these days, although I refuse to do that for Bammer.

Yeah, what was the reaction of the students in your class?

Blogger WDCWE said...

There was definitely an audible groan. It was interesting video for sure. Interesting in a car wreck kind of way.

I'd like to publicly thank Eddie for coaching me up to take on Mr. WVU that's here in my office today!

Scottie B was not happy that I was tired of "Livin' on a Prayer", anybody else feel like this needs to go?

I just hate the message of the song. We sang it at every game last year? How were our prayers answered? Tubs being gone? Sorry, this is one song I just don't get.

12:16 PM  
Blogger Monica said...

it's a wimpy song for losers

Eddie,

I need some of that coaching for these obnoxious Dawgs and the lone Corn Dog here at work. They are already driving me crazy!!!!!

12:19 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

we can live on a prayer, live on a dare, or live without a care; the words are irrelevant, it's a good tune.

12:20 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

ok, then how about "Adam Raised a Cain"?

12:21 PM  
Blogger Eddie McCoy said...

THT- So with that logic, then if the song had bama was the best in it, it would be all right? :)

12:21 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

i have no idea why that popped into my head

12:22 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

good point, Eddie. The words are almost irrelevant.

I hate Steely Dan and will never listen to any of their songs.

12:23 PM  
Blogger Monica said...

Nice, Eddie, nice...

Steely Dan is awesome. I didn't like them as a kid because that would have meant I was gay. Now that I am older, I don't care. I like them.

Mon- No Problem

Missinit- Dawgs are tough creatures to pry from your leg. I can tell you that the dawgs are going to be struggling to dog paddle this year. They were 10th last season in the SEC in Scoring Defense and they lost 5 starters off that terrible defense. Offense returns the complete offensive line and AJ Greene. I don't see how the defense will be much better for them this year and there schedule is brutal. The offense will be sufficient, but I think they struggle mightly in the beginning and could end up stumbling to a .500 season.
