REMINDER: Mission statement

Hey everyone. I didn't spend much time yesterday reading through comments after, say, 2 p.m. ... and I'm somewhat dismayed at some of the stuff that occurred.

I thought I made myself clear on Sunday night.

One HABOTN.

You all are bound by the fact you're Auburn fans. There are at least 1,000,000 ways to be a good Auburn fan. Just because Fan B doesn't agree with your ideas doesn't mean Fan B should be chided for his/her ideas. They like Auburn. They watch a lot of football, too.

So let's HABOTN up, represent and live the mantra: One HABOTN.

I will put people in the Harmony Hut and subject you to repeated recording of Jacko's "Heal The World" if you don't come correct.

You think losses dampen my fervor? Forgetaboutit.
I don't really like "drinking kool aid". It's over-used and lame. Until a better phrase is coined, that's what I'll be doing.
I love Auburn.

The roles have reserved this week.

Auburn was facing a bad matchup last week.

Now Auburn faces perhaps its most favorable matchup ... particularly with UK's quarterback and both CBs out.

Blogger AUNugget said...

thank you sir....it was the only time i have ever been alone in here so i thought it warranted something special.

AUN did a great job with the solo yesterday. My hats off...literally as I am not wearing a hat.

Blogger IV said...

Yesterday, I said that I wouldn't be surprised if we saw several changes made for this weekend. Someone later asked me to clarify and I had left the blog for awhile and never got back to what I was alluding to.

I don't think that we will see Mario on the returns again unless it is a real necessity. I think we see the offense going back to the power running game much more than they did in the first half last Sat. I think that it is a good possibility that with the return of Hot Carter, we may see AC working some at LB and putting a real pass rush on from the LB position. There other things that would not surprise me, but those are the main thoughts that I had. Comments?

9:26 AM  
Blogger IV said...

I think that we have two more bad match ups for sure, Ole Miss and the evil empire. I think that we will match up well with the remainder.

9:29 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Say what you want to, but we don't match up well with LSU IMO. I could be wrong, but that game doesn't look good right now for us.

9:31 AM  
Blogger IV said...

The old man killed the thread.

9:31 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Mario has seemed to struggle holding onto or catching the ball over the past three years, but it's hard to take him off the field due to what he can do with the ball when he gets it. I figure we'll still see him out there on returns, especially if FAH is still banged up a little.

If Hot Carter gets a lot of playing time, I figure it will be at DE and Coleman at LB due to his injury.

9:31 AM  
Blogger IV said...

Good points Werk; however, I didn't mean that Mario wouldn't be on the field at all, just the returns. How about Frenchy. He did a good job of catching the ball at Tenn. on punts.

9:35 AM  
Blogger AUNugget said...

i will be making my first trip to death valley so we need to win that game so i have good memories...though i will be in baton rouge so if i need to "forget" those memories it will not be that hard.

need to get that confidence back this weekend though. i said yesterday the best thing about the loss this weekend is that everyone had their day game together....hopefully they got it out of their system.

Jay,

Not hate here, I have always understood I dont always agree with all Auburn fans, some know more than me and some know less, some I agree with and some I dont, but we all are Auburn fans, so you cant hate there.

Shamone...I feel your Michael Jackson theme, I just put on Michaels "Man in the Mirror" and rode by a elementry school in a shady way and watched Home Alone 2.

(Sarcasm people)

9:36 AM  
Blogger Jay 'W. not Tate' said...

Eddie, what do you see for LSU that will give us fits?

I really like that matchup--an offense that can't score seems to be a good opponent for us.

In my opinion, we will score 20 on everyone other than maybe Bammer...I don't think LSU can score 20.

I was much more worried about the Arkansas game than the LSU game...

Okay,

I am out for awhile for my hour walk. War Eagle, beat 'tucky and keep the hate alive.

PDWT - That was great. I wanted to say something along those lines, too, but yeah didn't have the nurgets to do that this morning.

9:41 AM  
Blogger AUfan said...

I think several NFL draft gurus projected Coleman as more of a LB than a DE, anyway. That would seem to be a positive move for Auburn to shore up depth at a thin position, and for AC to show what he can do playing LB.

Of course, that move didn't work out too well when tried with Quentin Groves, but AC seems to be more of a run-stopper than Groves did.

I do think some of Coleman's frustration stems from fear of his draft status falling. Not that I blame him at all, he has a lot of potential money riding on his play. I hope things work out for him.

YW, Tommy D, got to combine some humor with seriousness.

Cold weather predicted for the game this weekend, I am pumped.

Saw where the school wants us to wear Blue for the ole miss game.

Thats all I have, I have an appt. down town. Im out for a bit.

9:43 AM

I agree with what was said yesterday of all games to ask us to wear navy, the game is on Halloween.

Blogger Aeronaut said...

You know what, this thing would've died down a while back if you guys had let it die down. I come back from work to find werk's lies right there.

Now if WERK calls an Auburn athlete "ill disciplined and habitual of drawing penalties", I won't argue. If he says "AC does not care about the 'student' part of student athlete", I won't point it out. If he makes a snide remark about another Auburn athlete I won't tell him otherwise.

And Sensi, your snide remarks are funny... I am sure you don't see the irony in them.

JayG, you don't need to make threads about harmony n stuff. I'm outta here. I don't fit in this bunch of hyenas that attack their own after the first damn loss.

Blogger Eddie said...

Jay W- LSU is very good at stopping the side to side running with their great team speed, they are less physical up front than in recent years, so that's a positive, but I think their defense provides our offense with some challages and I believe they matchup better than most until the last game against our offense. They also have Charles Scott who I know has not been steller this season, but he will have a good game at some point and Jefferson can be a good QB, just see the end of last season. LSU is off this week and have time to rest and heal why we continue the grind. Winning in Red Stick is always tough and I was part of the last team to do so in 1999 (Thanks for the Cigar Tubs!). Our defense has the ability to make any offense look if our offense goes 3 and out a few times in a row and I think LSU will do that to us. If Arkansas defense can do what they did to us, then don't think others can't either.

Wow, to everyone I do regret what my "lies" have caused in here.

Eddie,

I think LSU is pretty one dimensional right now and that helps our D out. Anything that helps the D out is a good thing.

It takes me about 3 1/2 hours from Chattanooga.

do anyone else think we should start Chizik's chin at WLB?

10:20 AM  
Blogger Kathy said...

Nugget, this will be my first trip to Tiger Stadium as well. Hope the Auburn Tigers can make this a memorable one.

As for the "Navy" Halloween, aren't Ole Miss' colors Navy and Red. Why would we wear Navy on Halloween? I understand they want orange this week, with a change for Ole Miss, and then All Orange again for the last game. My peeps prefer the navy, so they are happy about it.

I haven't heard any more on Byrum. Would it have happened when he had to do the kickoff in the 4th quarter? I'm assuming Hull was injured.

I hate all the drama (and they say women are emotional). I like reading this blog. It's the only one where I actually participate. If I don't agree, I just move on to the next comment. I enjoy the humor and good info.

There were a lot of excellent statements and advise from the Advisory Board. Enjoyed reading them.
A loss will always bring out the frustrations from fans, let's man up and stop the bickering. It is sad when grown people act like children so let's just don't.
I hope each of us can see the other persons side of the discussions and not try to retaliate. This just adds to the problem.
Step down.....remove soap box.

Didn't Chizik play LB in college anyway?

His chin is probably good for a few tackles per game.

10:29 AM  
Blogger Norm said...

Just so we're clear here, I RARELY post anything of substance here I leave that to those of you with more statistical, recruiting, historical and football knowledge in general. I think my history reflects that quite well. So, hopefully, none of you have been PO'd by anything I've put here. Mostly, I'm joking. Mostly. About the only time I'm not joking is when I'm saying bad things about Jet. In those instances; those are 100% true, accurate and serious posts. Jet is a bad man. And by that I don't mean bad meaning good. I'm plotting his downfall.

Don't know FSJ but you seem to share a friendship here, which is a bit unusual. I shared the same thing at one time on Al.com tide free for all with cats, Gotide, bama92 and others but that got torpedoed and I ahven't been back.
