Welcome to Jordan-Hare Stadium

Hey everyone. I have arrived at the stadium here in Auburn and let me tell you: It's wet again. Very wet. I was caught in a hellacious storm on the way here, but it hasn't hit this area yet. Or won't. I dunno.

  • PROGRAMMING NOTE: Kickoff has been delayed 30 minutes because of weather. Toe meets leather at 6:30 p.m. CDT.

  • John Sullen will start at LG. No word on what's up with Byron Isom.

  • Anthony Gulley is wearing No. 84 tonight.

  • Mike Blanc is starting at DT. Nick Fairley is not.

  • Your injury brigade looks like this: LB Spencer Pybus, DE Nosa Eguae, OL A.J. Greene, OL Jorell Bostrom, OL Vance Smith, S Mike McNeil and S Drew Cole.

    Cole is on crutches and has a boot on his left foot.

I hope we come out with a better start after the delay than last week...

Blogger Cotton said...

I'm sorry to hear about the rain for all you guys going. I was there last week, and let me tell you- it wasn't all that fun

4:56 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I need to count how many consecutive games I've attended. It's a lot ... and never before have I seen a game delayed.

Now it's happening two weeks in a row.

WARRRRR EAGLE!!!

GO TIGERS!!!!!!!!!

Man, we are good in the rain. If there is no thunder, lets get it going.

4:59 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

This is my 128th consecutive game. Haven't missed since the Idaho game, 9/11/99.

Ball !

5:01 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

wow, and still not a fan :-(

5:02 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

I just checked weather.com and it appears that there is some orange and red stuff in the area, but there is only a little break. More is coming.

5:02 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Jay, sooner or later you will have to yield to the force and become a fan. Why resist? You could make it easier on yourself.

5:03 PM  
Blogger auforme said...

Wow! Everyone is just getting over their illnesses from the deluge last week. Hope it dries out. I'm afraid that the crowd won't stay for Ball State the same as it did for WVU.

5:04 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

I don't know if this ESPN color guy is up on current events, but this game is over. Arkansas will not get back in this game.

5:05 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

No thanks.

This is my job. I couldn't see myself ever being an Auburn fan. It's not because Auburn is a weak program. Or than Auburn fans are weak. It's just work to me and it'll probably always feel like work to me.

I have adopted Air Force as my team. WE have a big game against the Fightin' Borgi (Al Borges plural) this afternoon: San Diego State.

5:05 PM  
Blogger auforme said...

In fact, just received text saying that people are on the way home from the Plains.

5:06 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Hey Jay, working on saying "Touchdown Auburn" with enthusiasm and maybe you work your way into the broadcast booth.

5:10 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

JGT - I understand. It would be very weird if you were a fan. But it is my obligation to keep wishing ;-)

5:11 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

I hope the team doesn't take Ball State lightly. The pickem this week has been a blood letting. Ball State ain't good, but you never can tell.

5:12 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

so how many more years before all the Florida I-A schools form their own conference?


No, I don't think so, either. But just a thought to consider during the rain delay.

5:14 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

there's no way in the world I could have survived attendance at 128 consecutive AU games at my current level of AU attachment. The emotional stress would have buried me by now.

5:17 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Interesting point THT.

I said this a couple of years ago to some friends. I think South Florida has it within them to become a big time program out of nowhere, like Florida St. and Miami in the late 70s, early 80s. They have a huge university (35,000 undergrads) and they're in a great location for recruiting.

5:18 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

And they play in a BCS conference.

5:18 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Unless I was just retired and spent the fall chasing football games, I don't think I could handle all the traveling, and business travel is the worst.

5:20 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Bad call there. I would have called that a no call.

5:24 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

TCU!

5:27 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

It looks like Elroy may have gotten himself banged up. When you are ahead by 4 touchdowns in the 4th quarter, but starting QB needs to be watching from the sidelines.

5:29 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

My mom has Direct TV and she needs to know what channel the Auburn game is on. Can anyone tell me.

5:29 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Clemson has 1 minute to go 55 yards and score a TD in the driving rain.

Should be fun.

5:30 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Auburn kickoff: 1 hour.

5:30 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Kathy: I think it's 646.

She'll need a subscription for that channel.

5:31 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Kathy, it should be a Fox Sports Channel.

5:33 PM  
Blogger coosa said...

Hate to say it, but bammer is #1. They would destroy FL or TX right now, and their schedule looks very weak right now.

Their biggest test will be in Jordan-Hare.

5:33 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

TCU wins, 14-10.

5:33 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

How 'bout them Horned Frogs!!! I've always liked TCU, even before Coach Sullivan.

5:35 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

Why haven't they put in their #2 QB? This is when they get injured.

5:38 PM  
Blogger AU MikeyC said...

Hello, Hotties

I thought that Miami was a team under the radar.

Guess I was wrong, I at least thought they would beat VT.

5:38 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

Sullen getting the start??

5:40 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Added a few notes to the main blog.

5:43 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I hope TCU and Boise State go undefeated, just to keep things messy. TCU has the more difficult schedule. I had TCU at #9 two weeks ago (and ahead of Ole Myth). I'll have to show the purple lizards some more love in the next pretend poll.

5:44 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

TCU is the unlucky of the big 3 Mountain West teams. They have to make a trip out to Utah every year to play either BYU or Utah whereas last year Utah got TCU and BYU at home while this year BYU gets Utah and TCU at home.

5:46 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

Uh oh, what's up with Isom. We can't afford to lose any OL. Hopefully it's "just the flu!"

5:47 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

JGT, was Isom out for warmups?

5:49 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Saban not trying to run it up on Petrino..

Who takes it easy on Petrino?

5:50 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

Isom seemed to limp around a little bit at the end of the WVU game if I remember correctly. Hopefully it's just precautionary.

5:50 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

I hope so Miller. We will need him next week.

5:52 PM  
Blogger IV said...

That injury brigade is to big heading into the Tenn. game.

5:52 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Is it still raining in Auburn?

5:53 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

No rain here.

5:55 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I have not seen Isom.

5:55 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

2 more minutes til they switch from the massacre in Austin to the massacre in Auburn!!!

5:58 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

This weeks pickup looks horrible. Congrats to scottie b and THT for shining when most of us are struggling.

5:58 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

No reason to go to Auburn yet. We won't be kicking off for a while.

5:59 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

you've got to be kidding, SFC? I was just thinking how bad I must be doing this week. Of course, as bad as my short term memory is, I have no recollection of the spreads or who I picked by the time Saturday rolls around.

YEA!!!!!!! It's Jordan-Hare in HD!!!!!

UF 31-KY 0 end of 1st qtr. UF needs to sit Tebow out.

6:01 PM  
Blogger FearlessFreep said...

I'm 6-5 thus far, and consider myself pretty lucky.

Took the dogs in the bottom four games on the slate, that will make or break me.

6:02 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

why is there a headlight on Dave Archer's head?

6:02 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

wow, I can't wait to hear what the attendance is tonight. It looks pretty empty, relatively speaking.

6:04 PM  
Blogger Dear Leader said...

I love HD

6:05 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

Funny, THT. I was just stated that I was surprised to see so many people there!

6:05 PM  
Blogger AU MikeyC said...

who is GA. playing today?

6:05 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

this must be a Lakers crowd coming in tonight.

6:05 PM  
Blogger Dear Leader said...

AZ State kicking off tween the hedges

6:06 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Don't have Fox South HD out here in Denver. :(

Slummming it on 360 tonight.

6:06 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

Love me some Lakers THT!!! Husband just talking about getting some new electronic something so we can watch more games this year.

6:06 PM  
Blogger AU MikeyC said...

GA on TV tonight?

6:08 PM  
Blogger dnatl said...

Light on Dave Archer's head - maybe he is into miners*? That would have made sense with the coal miners from WV last week.

* note that is different than James, who is into minors.

6:09 PM  
Blogger Cotton said...

sigh. quote from FSS analyst guy "Let's get Chizzy with it."

6:09 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

ESPNU Mikey

6:09 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

James needs to get in here and defend himself occasionally.

6:10 PM  
Blogger dnatl said...

During the rain delay they are showing Chizik miked up at practice - sounds like a bad McDonald's commercial with him repeated "I love it" constantly

6:11 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

I love it!!!

6:12 PM  
Blogger James in Auburn said...

Defend myself like Arkansas defense?

6:12 PM  
Blogger dnatl said...

JGT - James will probably invite you over to the new house for a Yeungling - just make sure he doesn't slip a micky in it

6:12 PM  
Blogger AU MikeyC said...

thanks Wakerider

6:13 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

I have options... FS-South HD or SunSports HD... what to do, what to do?

6:14 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

Ga on ESPNU.

6:14 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I wonder when was the late game the Sun Debis played in the rain.

Probably would have been in Seattle, Corvallis, or Eugene.

6:14 PM  
Blogger Dear Leader said...

why is the flag at half staff?

6:14 PM  
Blogger Dear Leader said...

D.Miller

depends do you still get the same crappy announcers??

6:15 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

Kentucky has 6 total yards with 10 minutes left in the 1st half...

6:15 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

Don't know yet, DL... I'll check when the game starts...

6:16 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

don't forget AU Women's soccer at 3 EDT tomorrowon ESPNU

6:18 PM  
Blogger Dear Leader said...

Does anyone know how ot stream/get the au announcers via the internet

6:18 PM  
Blogger dnatl said...

DL - it needs to be at half-staff because the game has been delayed by 30 minutes - otherwise it would be at full staff for four hours, and someone would need to call a urologist (but thanks for noticing)

6:18 PM  
Blogger FearlessFreep said...

Wow, Pitt blew a 31-17 late 3rd quarter lead and lost to NCSU 38-31.

6:21 PM

NICE

Evening Hotties!!!

Let's kick some butt!

BEASLEY!!!

6:23 PM

I should probably have been pulling for the school from my home state, but we loved our year at Pitt so much that I'm a bit disappointed they lost today :-(

Crompton throws a pick.

6:26 PM

Ohio about to go up 14-7.

6:27 PM  
Blogger dnatl said...

I predict 100 yard games for both Tate (Ben) and FAH, 350+ team total on ground.

6:28 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Touchdown Ohio. 14-7 over UT. Still very early. I predict 40 consecutive runs and a 35-14 win for the Vols.

6:28 PM  
Blogger AUBigCat said...

Hello Hots! I punked out today and decided to stay dry instead of heading to JH. But that means I get to watch the game with you good people

6:29 PM

What's up with Ted Roof wearing a yellow jacket?

Couldn't anybody find him a navy or burnt orange one?

6:29 PM

Wow good crowd!

Looks like Ball State didn't travel very well...

Our special teams are going to cost us some games. This is getting ridiculous.
