First Post: Thursday of Week Five

Hey everyone. Are you aware that Iowa fans believe their team should be ranked higher than No. 22? Oh, you aren't? Well, I guess you need to read the HIBOTN more often.

First day of October is upon us. I like warm weather. This is the time of year I dream of living in Belize and covering Auburn via closed-circuit television and satellite phone. Daytime highs below 80 are considered cold in my world. So it goes.

I thought the Craig Sanders switch was intriguing. I'm sure you felt the same way. Auburn now challenges Alabama for in-state kids. I'm sure you're intrigued by that as well.

Here's the Auburn situation at this moment:

Maizetos are an inexpensive alternative to the overprice Tostitos.

Jet's First and Goal Nachos Recipe

One bag of Maizetos
1 block of Pepper Jack cheese
Hot sauce (optional)
Salsa or Sour cream

Spread out chips on cookie sheet. Grate or cube cheese and place over chips. Sprinkle hot sauce, if desired. Warm in oven until cheese is melted. Use either salsa or sour cream as a dip.

In other news,
LB/DE – Craig Sanders (Atrion [sic] HS/Atrion,[sic] AL) 6-4/240/4.6 - One of the South’s top defensive end prospects ended his recruitment early Tuesday when he publicly committed to the Crimson Tide. Craig Sanders, of Atrion,[sic] AL, was one of Alabama’s top targets on the defensive side of the ball. He had been being recruited to play that position by the Tide coaches for over a year. Sanders is a tremendous athlete who has starred on both sides of the ball in high school.

the above is from the May 20 rolltidebama.com blog.

Not often you see "War Damn Eagle" in print on a major .com.

From foxsports.com "Ten Roadblocks to Undefeated Seasons"

Alabama

We could just circle two dates on the Tide's calendar -- Oct. 10 at Ole Miss and Nov. 7 hosting LSU -- but that's just too obvious. It's the last game of the year at Auburn on Nov. 27 that signals an upset alert. Auburn is also 4-0 and getting absolutely no respect from the pollsters. The Tide's history of folding like a cheap lawn chair at the end of the season is well documented -- they have lost nine of ten of their final two games of each regular season since 2004 and are 2-3 in bowl games. War Damn Eagle!

Jet's Iowa Facts ...

Its population is 2.9 million

Its state flag looks like the French flag, except with a seal and the word "Iowa" in the white portion of the flag.

Its state bird is the Eastern Goldfinch, also known as the Wild Canary

Its major industries are agriculture (corn, soybean and hogs) and insurance (favorable tax rate of 1 percent makes the state a haven for insurance companies as compared to Alabama's 3.6).

Its goofy caucus system arguably gives Iowans a disproportionate effect on the presidential primary races by giving and taking momentum away from candidates.

Its state university football collective, known as the Hawkeyes, did give Saban perhaps his most painful defeat as a head coach with a last-second bomb in a bowl game in his final game as head coach of the Corndogs.

More love:

I see by National Publications you are trying to make a name for yourself, IDIOT, is already taken. Ranking the Hawkeyes at 22 and Penn State at 11 only dilutes what you may have wanted to accomplish. Good luck to you and your sports future. You will need it.

FSJ/E's Bro ...

I'm wondering if Gainesville was a sort of a last stand for the Vols. Now that the Florida game is past them, what's left to unify them?

Team pride never serves well as a great unifier. Unified hate serves quite well as a rallying point. I don't think they can manufacture hate of us.

The more I think about this, the better I feel. Maybe I should be more pessimistic.

RK ...

I don't disagree with your premise. That's the way I was thinking since Saturday night. It's an entirely logical conclusion.

But if it is a team divided or in great turmoil, "must win" equals "must get ahead early" because at the first sign of a problem, they'll cave.

Note I used "if."

I, for one, don't feel "waaay too good" about this game. However, I'm not waaay too concerned either for that matter. I stand by my earlier prediction of Good Guys 37 Bad Guys 34. A late FG finishes it. At least 10 of the Bad Guys points come from a combination of their defense or a Special Teams flub by the Good Guys.

THT-I understand your concerns along with everyone else. However, I think AU fans have to get behind them is the fear/concern of losing. This year, more than any in the last few years, I expect AU to win. Never go into the game timid. You can be realisitic aboutthe game, but I have to always expect the best from my team and their best is enough to win.

i'm not hatin' or jabbin' at anyone, but AU fans have to get away from our 'we may not win' attitude we sometimes have.

How does one have bark and not bite on a blog? How does that metaphor make sense? Are Iowan blogs especially well known for how much bite they have? And I know there is a lot of hate towards Lowder around here, but can we really blame him for the bite we apparently lack? Shouldn't we maybe point that finger in the mirror, since after all, we don't even know how bark with no bite applies to us?

Blogger michael said...

OK, I am trying to think like an angry Iowa fan looking in. OK, I know Bobby Lowder has basically bought Auburn and runs the show there. I also know he hates it when blog commentors actually do things other than post comments. So... with his power, he has convinced Auburn to convince us not to do things on a blog other than post comments. So that explains why we have climbed through the intertubes and burned down Jay G's house for not putting Iowa higher. You see, we have no bite while on this blog. Only bark.

OK, now I see how it makes sense.

Jay, ask them if they watched the Iowa/Northern Iowa game. One game doesn't a season make.

Man, he disappeared quick. When that guy says he is leaving, his is leaving.

Congrats Jay G., you knocked him out of the park on the first swing. Pretty impressive.

And personally, I like blogger.

Thanks, Jay G.

That was even more lame to read a second time.

Best thing to come out of Iowa besides James T. Kirk?

4:43 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

It certainly makes me respect Iowa a lot more.

4:44 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Is there a full moon or something? We seem to be getting a bunch of kids in here these days.

As for rankings, I haven't got a good feel for a lot of teams. I mean, Miami looked unbeatable at one time and I wasn't impressed with VaTech, but then VaTech struck.

Iowa nearly gets cornholed by Northern Iowa but beats Penn State.

More and more, I do think we are seeing parity in college football. Should LSU be in the top 10? Why? Nothing has really convinced me they should be in the top 20.

I am loving this college season because of the lack of dominant teams.

Sorry about that moderation business, Sensi. I was testing a few settings.

Nothing against you. When I head out to soccer in a bit, I'm going to turn comment moderation on and we'll have to roll that way until I get back.

The Obnoxious Iowa Effect will be eliminated by any means necessary.

I don't know, but I think cormhole is being maligned on this blog.

Norm,
Were you referring to an African Swallow or a European Swallow?

4:59 PM  
Blogger Sensi said...

It's cool. I understand.

5:01 PM

We will not be spammed by obnoxious Iowa fans. I can promise you that.

I'm OK with Feng. His posts make sense.

5:02 PM  
Blogger weagle251 said...

I hate coming in late after comments have been removed. Nothing makes sense. It's like listening to one end of a phone conversation.

5:06 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

It had to be done.

5:11 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

And we appreciate you doing it.

Can you imagine what this place will be like if Auburn ends up playing Iowa in a bowl this year?

I wish all Iowa fans were like Feng.

This is sad. Is it the "Worst Play in Football", as advertised? Well, if not, it's pretty darn close. You have to watch the first 2 minutes. What an Exciting Game

Speak of Feng and he shows. This dude is almost as persistent as Dear Leader.

Sorry I missed the Iowa barbs. I would love to have traded some myself. I'm going to laugh my butt off if they lose to Michigan in a couple of weeks!

5:48 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

THe sad thing about this whole Iowa deal is that I have a really good friend who was an Iowa Grad and an Auburn Graduate School Grad that shared with me a lot of very good things about the Hawkeyes. I hate seeing any part of a fanbase act like baffoons, especially at week 4 of the season. Come on Hawkeyes, grow up. By the way, when is Iowa going to hire Keno Davis??????

5:52 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

With a name like Feng, he must be good.

5:52 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Less than 30 minutes until the Eers take on Colorado. They should handle them easily. Should the Buffalos win, reality isn't what I thought it was.

Who doesn't love Taiwan?

6:08 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Jay G. I can now see why you are getting all the hate mail. I found an article that singles you out on Fan Nation, an SI sponsored website.

6:11 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I keep forgetting that TigerTalk is 7 pm CDT. I guess I'll go ahead and take Molly dog outside.

Blogger Sensi said...

It's sunny in San Antonio, but the rains in Dallas have us all delayed at least an hour.

Looks like I'll miss the live chat and Thursday night fun.

Enjoy it gang.

Can't wait to hear about Keo getting banhammered off chatroll.

6:21 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Blah blah blah.

Almost every AP voter has at at least one team that's considered extreme or almost extreme.

Kiss a girl. Walk in the grass. Eat something delicious. Surely there's something better to do.

6:22 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Jay, is being an AP voter and getting paid the tons of extra money you get for doing it worth dealing with all the fans?

6:29 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

WV felt they were the better team?

6:33 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Sorry Fowler, West Virginia was not the better team a couple of weeks ago. Turnovers are part of the game. We were better at protecting the ball than they were, thus we were the better team.

6:34 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

Most of those ints were tipped balls. Credit the defense there.

6:35 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

OU at the U in the pick'em. I haven't a clue with Sam Bradford out.

6:35 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

THT, I'd go with OU b/c of their defense, regardless of Bradford.

6:36 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

But that's just me.

6:37 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

I suppose it is how you could look at the WV. I guess they are saying they are the better, yet dumber, team. We won by 2 scores. That is definitive enough for me.

It is Arkansas TV and radio so it may not be true.

Nice play call. Bad execution.

I've seen that before.

That did look familiar.

6:59 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

yep, EBro, that looked very familiar.

BTW, I ended up picking about half the 'dogs in pick'em. I have no idea what I'm doing, so I let Molly dog throw darts to decide my picks.
