EARLY player comments

Hey everyone. A few players stopped by to speak with reporters before practice today. Here are a few "highlights" as they are.

  • CB Walt McFadden on his injured knee (not an ankle): ``I'm going to get it cleared up by Wednesday hopefully. I'm trying to run on my own, trying to do a couple of things, but I really don't know what's going to happen."

  • McFadden on his teammates mobbing him after making the interception that injured his knee: ``Zac Etheridge, he was hitting me all in the head, saying 'Good interception, good interception.' I was screaming on the ground and he was jumping all over me. I was telling him: 'Back up, back up.' He basically told me to get off the ground -- Don't let them see you hurt. I appreciate everything he had done because I was fixing to lay on that ground awhile."

  • OL Ryan Pugh on reasons for Arkansas problems: ``We can make up all the excuses in the world, we just didn't come out and play very well. We didn't prepare ourselves mentally and physically in the week. The coaches gave us a good game plan. We just went out and didn't execute the things that we've been executing all the year."

  • On why that happened: ``A lack of focus. I think we let our focus slip a little bit during the week, and we didn't come out and play as good as we wanted to."

  • OL Mike Berry on preparations this week: ``I think the mood's been good. The loss was definitely a shock for us, but like Coach Chizik said it can either be the best thing that could happen to us or the worst thing. I feel like it gave us a chance to refocus. I feel like we're preparing hard for Kentucky."

From previous thread "Why is "Muskrat Love" running through my head all of a sudden? Somebody needs to make a Tebow/Meyer video using that song."

A song by Auburn Alum Toni Tennill and her husband, Daryl. Has she been back to campus since she did A-Day in '88 ?

Google is a lot of things, but it is useless when trying to assign a color to an abstract thought or mood.

I named by bald German Shepherd Sasquatch Sans Hair - it sounded very German. But when it grew back he just didn't look like a Sasquatch anymore. So, I named him "LORD" and introduced him as "the Lord is my Shepherd."

Harrison, your quote tells a simple fable about a young man and his love for beer (and wax by proxy) and how the lust for wealth sometimes elicits such surprising excesses.

That's true literary perfection.

Maybe a disillusioned colored crayon is the same as a horse of a different color.

so, did you choose green, was green forced upon you, or was green the only crayon available? I'd probably eat a blue crayon for a Diet Coke, but not a green one. I have standards to which I must adhere.

my brother handed me the green crayon and said he'd buy me a beer if i ate it, so i did. The only person that didn't like it was my wife, who thinks I'm an idiot anyway

Harrison, got my HABOTN laugh for the day out of the green crayon eating!

API, don't be stealing my "Muskrat Love" idea. I actually went and listened to the song on YouTube and cracked up thinking about Tebow and Meyer.

By the way, Toni Tennille went to one of my dad's fraternity formals when she was at AU.

And her family, who owned a furniture store in the Gump , continued to use the first pronunciation. And her mother was Cathryn Grayson on a WSFA afternoon talk show.

PF...I read a few stories in there that I had never known before and got a good update on the current criminal investigation issues.

I know of a bunch of stuff since 2003 that ain't in there or that has ever been in print for that matter.

I'm sure Forbes won't have to worry about a libel suit with this article.

Just don't understand how some AU folks can know all of this and still give Lowder a pass. Are they beholden to him? ..afraid because of their political or business situation?... embarrassed that they were duped?.. just won't admit that they are OK taking that devil's money and that the money trumps anything else done to AU? ...or have no pride and don't care about silly stuff like this?

It must still be dicey for the in-state press to publish in-depth stories and details. I find much more printed on this from out of the State of Alabama than in state.

At the Fuzzy Duck you could see any thing and every thing. Talk about some war stories there are thousands.

6:19 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

I need someone to follow me around and tell when I am joking...

I nominate Salsa Shark for that task.

digger,

Between the Fuzzy Duck and the Oasis on the Drive......now those were two "interesting" places.

But seriously, I am in PF's camp. Thanks for the money, ole Bobby boy!

Blogger IV said...

And I still sing it as API. No wait, I can't sing.

6:23 PM  
Blogger diggerforAu said...

You couldm't move or hardly breath at the Oasis. Packed full on Friday and Saturday nights.

All Alma Maters sound like the Kellerman's song on Dirty Dancing.

6:24 PM  
Blogger michael said...

OK, time to be controversial.

I dislike the Auburn Alma Mater. It puts me to sleep and does not move me in any way.

There, I said it.

6:25 PM  
Blogger IV said...

Money, money, money, PF, Michael and I think alike.

6:25 PM  
Blogger IV said...

Of course I have to think like Michael, or he will call me Tim.

6:26 PM

Kristina, Is Michael kidding?

6:27 PM  
Blogger diggerforAu said...

Where is Kristina when we need her?

Zookeeper fails us again.

Maybe the zoo animals are restless again.

Joking about Lowder a little bit (though I really am glad he gave all that money, because they built a lot of buildings with it. I don't think Auburn would be where it is today without him. But yeah, he is evil).

Not joking about the alma mater... sorry fellas.

6:29 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Michael - doesn't move you at all!?!? You might as well put the houndstooth hat back on your messed up head.

6:29 PM  
Blogger Kristina said...

I am only required by contract to say when he is kidding. I am not required in anyway to infer whether he is serious only in that I do not reply that he is kidding.

6:29 PM  
Blogger IV said...

Kristina, Is Michael joking?

6:30 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Can you say that in English zookeeper?

6:31 PM  
Blogger diggerforAu said...

And that is the letter of the law and she's sticking to it

6:31 PM  
Blogger IV said...

Michael, Is Kristina kidding?

Blogger FSJ said...

digger...

Did you ever go to the Jungle when it was open?

I think the same guy owned it that owned the Oasis.

6:32 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

well, I'm serious. I'm going downstairs and eat up all the dessert leftovers. They've had plenty of time to get whatever they wanted.

WARRRRRRR EAGLE!!!!

Thread killer.

Blogger michael said...

One time in the student section, someone yelled at me to take my hat off during the alma mater. I readjusted my hat, leaving it on, and gave the guy a thumbs up and a big smile.

Sorry gang. But hey, we can all agree on puppets, right?

6:37 PM

FSJ

No I never made the Jungle. My favorite watering hole was Top of the River before they closed the bar area to make more room for Diners.

6:37 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

digger,

That was a terrible terrible move on their part.

6:39 PM

It broke my heart along with about 10 other Mid-South employees.

IV out for awhile. Got my high school class chat session coming up in a bit. Can you imagine what a bunch of 70 year olds gab about? I mean those of us that are left that don't fall asleep in front of our computers. Be glad you are not subjected to that.

I can never not be on the HABOTN again. I miss too much. Sux that the HABOTN is banned at work.

I quit my job today.

I have never been big on sports media being biased but I just watched abc 33/40 sports. Man raita used the A.C. comments like this team was falling apart. Mentioned how dissatisfied Alabama was with the NCAA. Didn't mentioned the harsh comments ncaa made about Alabama. I am starting to see just how biased this state really can be.

Kristeenuh, is AU1N04 kidding? Did you quit on account of HABOTN? If so, props!

6:50 PM  
Blogger Kristina said...

I thought our contract had an exclusivity clause. I will not be telling when other people are joking for no compensation. Sheesh.

6:54 PM  
Blogger AU1N04 said...

Michael - Don't ask me about my business!!

Woo Hoo, I got to use the line on Michael.

And no, I didn't.

Toni Tennille also did some back up work on Pink Floyd's The Wall. Muskrat Love is considered by most (namely me) to be the low point in her career.

I think Norm would agree.

I'll give someone else the flip honor. Do us proud.
