All we have are the embers

Hey everyone. We held a 2-hour Campfire® on Thursday night that was well-attended and well-received.

We hosted 303 users this time. Thanks for your support.

BIG UP to the HOTTIES who went the distance: Sensi, Eddie, E-Bro, Kristina, DMiller, JD. I think WEG was there for most of the shindig as well.

It's always nice seeing new members around: philly1, Wilson Tailgate. There were others.

Too hard to watch the game and campfire at the same time for us old folks!

This SC/Ole Miss game is messy. I'm sorta kinda pulling for MS because it will be hard enough to break in to Top 25 without being able to beat top-rated team but...

Catch everyone in the morning.

Ole Miss < Number 4 team in the country win or lose

Anyone got a clue at why LSU is in the top 10?

9:56 PM  
Blogger Kristina said...

LSU beat Washington and Washington beat USC...sheesh Steve. ;-)

9:58 PM  
Blogger FearlessFreep said...

I was looking at team stats on SECsports.com, LSU and AU are almost identical in every category, offense and defense, against similar competition.

9:58 PM  
Blogger Sensi said...

And that one win got Washington to the top 25.

Because that's more substantive than La Tech, MSU or WVU.

9:59 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

LSU, Washington, and USC all got issues.

10:00 PM  
Blogger Sensi said...

McCluster got cranked!

10:02 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

USC has QB issues. Any time you have QB issues, you got trouble. I refer you to Auburn 2008 as proof.

10:03 PM  
Blogger Sensi said...

The Tenacious Spurriers are not gonna make it easy.

10:03 PM  
Blogger AUMom said...

McClester wasn't in the game. Snead got sacked. This is not the #4 team in the country.

Oh, no, Senator Holtz predicted SC would win.

10:04 PM  
Blogger AUMom said...

4th and 19. What maroons.

10:05 PM  
Blogger FearlessFreep said...

Yeah, but Stanford also beat USC a couple of years ago, then lost 5 of their next 7 to finish 4-8.

Washington could do that too.

10:05 PM  
Blogger Sensi said...

See ya Ole Miss.

10:06 PM  
Blogger Sensi said...

Washington will be able to say they were ranked in the Top 25 at one time.

I wonder if Auburn will say the same?

Time will tell.

Good-night, Hotties.

Wow, the historically consistent Ole Miss suckiness won out over South Carolina's legendary mediocrity.

10:10 PM

Well put Freep

10:12 PM  
Blogger Matt said...

Crap... I was studying for a test... that's more important I guess.

10:12 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

That wasn't exactly a dominating performance by South Carolina. Ole Nutt made plenty of mistakes to help them out.

10:14 PM  
Blogger Matt said...

South Carolina just busted a Nutt

It's nice when you think a certain way and it ends up true.

Washington may be the best turnaround story in CFB. After last year's most terrible team of all time to putting up a good fight against a good SEC, then beating the best team in theiir conference and being ranked. I'd say they had a super-fantastic offseason.

By the way, have any two coaches ever done more to set back African American college head coaches than Ty Willingham and Sly Croom?

10:20 PM  
Blogger BigEZ said...

Vintage Nutt, flu or whatever.

10:21 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

I thought Croom did very well, especially in conducting himself in a professional manner and giving his team a chance to win. He is a good coach and a good man.

10:22 PM  
Blogger BigEZ said...

Big Snacks, No they haven't. Unless you count Saban, I think he's like Bill Clinton as in the first black white football coach or whatever he is. Christlike maybe, shapeshifter, chameleon. Who knows. Crap post on my part, I know.

10:24 PM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

What Croom lacked in being able to make lemonade with lemons, he made up for in dignity, yes. That doesn't mean anything, though, in an industry where dignity is undervalued.

10:28 PM  
Blogger j-z said...

Dignity, much like stats, is for chumps.

Sorry I missed. I need to be more vigilent about such things.

10:42 PM  
Blogger Frame said...

HAHAHAH.

If only y'all could've heard these Mississippi fans talking about how if they could only get by Bama, everything would be golden.

Seriously, Bama is all they ever talk about, as being tough competition.

And Auburn was waaaaay down on their totem pole for possible losses. Now they've gotta be just hoping to win 8 or 9.

10:44 PM  
Blogger FearlessFreep said...

Croom didn't do any worse than Rockey Felker, who didn't have major NCAA sanctions to deal with. At least Coarch got the Bullies into a bowl game.

On a related note, I recall that one of the main justifications for Bama not to hire Croom was that 'if he didn't succeed and you fired him, you'd be accused of it being racially motivated'.

I don't recall anyone making that claim last year when MSU let him go.

10:45 PM  
Blogger Unusually Optimistic jhag said...

I just want Dyer to announce!

10:46 PM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

8 or 9? If they play like they did tonight, they'll be lucky to hit up Shreveport or Memphis.

10:52 PM  
Blogger Kristina said...

Freep, Bama doesn't have the patience that MSU state has. They would have let him go much sooner and that might have mad a difference.

Been lurking. You guys covered everything very well tonight. Some interesting reads. I didn't have anything to add except 'night y'all.

key word: hoping

11:03 PM  
Blogger chip chip said...

if you were prepared to hire croom, you had to be prepared to fire him and bammer could sorely afford that liability and opted for shula and made life good for AU a few more years. at bammer, firing croom is a story. at MSU, not so much.

11:20 PM  
Blogger chip chip said...

i think AU wins one of the upcoming sec road games and the other goes down to the wire and could go either way. if AU pulls off both on the road with UK coming in, things get real interesting. if AU gets a split, they'll still be ahead of my expectations going in. UT ARky & OM all look more winnable now than they did two weeks ago. WDE!

11:43 PM  
Blogger Aeronaut said...

Some random musings:

If our benevolent dictator JGT were to ask coaches some questions, what would your question be (on a serious note)

I think SECW isn't really strong this year either. I don't like that, one bit.

And I dislike the 2010 schedule. I've rarely liked the schedule but this one is sucktastic.

While I have dislike for those things, my hate is always for the fighting sabans and the mindless drones that live under his abject tyranny.

I believe that bammer nayshun deserves to be treated like that. Does anyone remember the Spurrier quote about bama / saban?

Good morning all and TFIG!!!!!!!!

Ole Miss was doing what they do. My Bro posted this on the campfire last night, but it went over my head and that was that if you compare Auburn 2003 to Ole Miss 2009, South Carolina (USC) was Auburn's Southern Cal (USC) and he wonders if Vandy will be their Georgia Tech next week? Interesting thought.

Yeah, last night when i went to bed the rain prediction was 80% chance. This morning it is down to a mere 60%.

Well, I'm sure the wife and 2 kids will be coming down tomorrow, but i'm not sure we will make it thru the game if the weather gets really bad.
