Hey War Eagle Girl! Glad you were paying attention!!! I agree with you completely about being cautious. That's why HABOTN is so bad for me. It makes me throw caution to the wind. SECCG here we come!!! WAR EAGLE!!!

I think you guys are being too hard on Ziemba on all those false starts.

Let's face it ... he knew we were going to lose 5 yards on every other play ... when he did it, it didn't cost us a down.

Jay- your hard work is much appreciated. I look forward to reading your take on things at AU.

When you were on the roundtable the other day, did i understand that you think AU goes 6-6 this year? I can't recall if that was the number but it sounds like what I heard.

6 close wins!
6 blowout wins!

OK, maybe not.

I'm sticking with 8-4 or 9-3.

10:36 PM  
Blogger §teve From Columbia said...

We just need to take one game at a time. We don't need to look ahead to anyone. We need to simplify the offense. We need to play Auburn football. We need to play physical football. We need to avoid injuries.

This has been your coach speak comment of the day.

T-minus 31 days til kickoff


Wearing #31, "Fast Freddie" Smith was the greatest linebacker ever to suit up in an Auburn uniform. You disagree? I'm sorry, let me explain the rules for today: It ain't open for debate!

Freddie Smith was a high school All-American in Athens, AL, where he played RB and LB. On offense, he had nearly 5,000 yards rushing in his high school career, including over 2,150 as a senior when he led Athens to a state championship. He also had 385 tackles in his 3 year H.S. career. He chose Auburn over numerous other major college offers, including that other school, because Auburn was a friendly place and he felt at home there (don't we all!).

When he arrived in Auburn in the fall of 1976, Fast Freddie didn't care if he was on offense or defense (or both), he just wanted to be on the field helping Auburn win football games. The coaches decided he was needed more on defense, which was OK with Freddie. He decided it was better to give than receive. How quickly did Freddie Smith adjust to the college game? Well, they didn't call him Fast Freddie without reason.

In his 2nd game as a true freshman, Freddie Smith led Auburn's defense with TWENTY-TWO tackles in a 15-14 loss to the Baylor Bears. The following week, he decided he needed to step up his game for SEC play as he recorded TWENTY-FOUR tackles in Auburn's 38-28 bashing of the Vols. Fast Freddie finished his Auburn career with 528 tackles, averaging 13.2 tackles/game. No one else is even close.

After his stellar Auburn career, Mr. Smith played with the Vikings in the NFL and starred for the Winnipeg Bombers in the CFL. In 1983 he teamed up with several former Auburn players on the roster of the B'ham Stallions of the USFL. As of 2008, Mr. Smith had been employed by Brasfield & Gorrie in Birmingham for 20 years. He was also inducted into the Limestone County Hall of Fame last year.

We've got some other 31s we should honorably mention: I'll start with Antarrious Williams. Talk about a lunch pail guy that put in a full shift every day - dude could play. And 3 cheers to Rob Pate. The floor is now open for more 31 shout outs.


Sources: Much of the information was obtained from an article written by Sonny Turner for the Athens News-Courier. Unfortunately, I was unable to retain his professional writing form, hence the crude & elementary sentence structure to which I subjected you. USFL rosters found at Auburn Football Media Guide, as always.

Will and THT, you obviously don't understand the need to get wet. Besides, I can get in a class over the 3 day weekend. After dive grill=tailgate.

Although this is the first game, remember it IS La Tech. The choice isn't go diving or go to the game, it's go diving or watch the game on TV. All I have to do is not check the internet and it will be like watching it live.

Another great tune this morning! My Ride's Here by Warren Zevon. As soon as it started, it occurred to me that I referred to it as "The 3:10 to Yuma" the other day. I'm retarded.

I was staying at the Marriott
With Jesus and John Wayne
I was waiting for a chariot
They were waiting for a train
The sky was full of carrion
"I'll take the mazuma"
Said Jesus to Marion
"That's the 3:10 to Yuma
My ride's here..."

... and now we've got Sheryl Crow playing. We've had some Procul Harum, Newsboys, David Bowie, Toto, James Gang (x2), Bad Company, Gary Wright. Time to get a little breakfast and hit the road for the 75 mile commute. I'll catch up with you sleepy heads later. WAR EAGLE!!!

So Ziemba likes to fish but can't find a place huh? Some one needs to point him out to Lee County Lake (if they ain't drained it). I spent more time out there than in class in the spring. Were some monster Bass in there at one time.

Fast Freddie was The Man!! Saw him his frosh year. Didn't he tear up a knee while at AU which put a damper on a promising pro career?

What Bammer's lack in obnoxious, they make up for with delusion.

Alan, the co-host from the Breakdown, told me this week that Alabama's defense in 2009 would be the 2nd best in school history and that Trent Richardson was the next Jerome Bettis - based solely on his lift numbers.

Sure. Whatever helps you sleep at night is what I said in response.

Jerome Bettis? that's high praise for a guy who hasn't played a game yet. yup, delusions of grandeur.

The year after my father died, we made special T-shirts for the family football game. I wore 66 in high school, so that was my jersey in last Thanksgiving's game. It was my first appearance in the game in 10 years. I was filling in for my daughter who was on crutches.

The biggest difference I have noticed so far is Ben Tate and his comments. Last season he made some comments that made me wonder if he was basically a discontent. One of them was that he thought everyone knew who should be the QB. This year Tate seems to have a completely different attitude. I take that as a very positive sign.

Google Tommy quotes and you find some fun ones.

The more games you play, the more chance you have of playing a bad game on offense. Your defense can play good every week as long as they play hard. It's a lot easier to play defense than it is offense.”
