Thursday Night Live IN ABSENTIA

Hey everyone. I am not going to make TNL tonight.

I flew from Memphis to Tulsa, got near Tulsa, thunderstorms and a low fuel tank sent us to Ft. Smith, Ark. So we fueled up, headed back to Tulsa and the airport shut down. Tornado warning.

So I'm back in Memphis now and chillin.

Please feel free to discuss the Missouri-Nebraska game (or Tiger Talk) here.

Piece.

I agree that Bowden has been kind of treated rotten this weekend, but it annoys me when the coaches fraternity makes a point to stand together for a person. I know why they do it, but sometimes it's just time to go. Everyone has an expiration date.

Everybody is quiet but the Gators...

It's all Tebow...all the time.

7:24 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Agreed. Bama might be the quietest #3 team in a while (though they have gotten some decent pub about possibly being the real #1), but Texas is definitely the quietest #2 in a while...until the Red River Shootout next week anyway.

Tebow

7:32 PM  
Blogger FearlessFreep said...

Evening HOTTIEs.

I think Texas has been quieter than Bama, mainly because of Oklahoma's 2 losses.

If the Sooners were undefeated, we'd be hearing more about both them and the Horns. As it stands, everyone is more or less assuming that Texas will advance to the BCSCG against the Florida-Bama winner.

It's really a shame that USC blew their shot at an undefeated season against the Huskies. It would have been fun to see both them and Texas undefeated at season's end, knowing that one of them would end up being left out if UF and Bama went into the SECCG 12-0.

Today has been a very stressful day. I made 10 phone calls to Transunion Credit and spoke to 12 different people (10 of the 12 were in India and did not understand my problem) to try and get a credit freeze that we had put on our account lifted. We're talking about almost 3 hours of phone calls.

I relaxed by going and getting a pedicure and manicure. Beautiful ORANGE polish!

Eddie..We're looking at doing a Dollar General in Winston, so I drove down 61 from C'ville and went around Punkintown Rd to 78. Prolly got within 1/4 mi. of your place.

Something tells me Bo Pelini will win in the rain.

No offense, but being A) big and B) it's raining, why the hell would someone show up wiht something painted on their chest?

Blogger cincytiger said...

Hoopie,
I think you were very near Tom's sister's house. They are off of King's HIghway. I think their property is between King's and Punkintown Rd. They had a lot of damage from the floods. Their dams held, but ones further upstream from their land gave way and flooded them. They lost a tractor, front loader, truck, and a bunch of other stuff.

8:05 PM

It's not the same without the Thursday night Tiger Talk play by play. I wonder what idiotic questions were asked today.

8:10 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

That is a tough rain to play in. I already see where the longterm forecast calls for rain next Saturday. Usually it's wrong at this point, so I'm hoping that's the case. One rain game a year is too many.

8:11 PM

Which show do you enjoy most....Gameday or College Football Final???

I actually like Final better, even with idiot Holtz.

8:15 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

I don't watch all of Gameday while watch all of Final, but Holtz keeps me from loving it more than Gameday. That judge and jury segment is ridiculous.

8:16 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Agreed Bro. The judge / jury segment is crazy.

8:18 PM

It's the McCoy/Cincy/Hoopie show tonight. Where is everybody? I know it's not regular TNL, but still.

8:20 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

I hate the judge and jury sketch. It isn't funny, clever or entertaining.

I like Gameday because I love Corso. I know I am in the minority, but I do. He knows everyone thinks he is a joke and he doesn't care. Holtz thinks people take him seriously.

Cincy, that sounded like I made the fix your credit issue specific to you. My apologies....that was for the general population

8:24 PM

When she tells people who she works for the first thing they say is "Can you fix my credit?"

8:24 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

AU1N04

We do call all three and our credit is great, we just had them frozen to keep others from being able to check our credit without our permission. Unfreezing them was the problem with TU. The other two were a piece of cake.

At least they have the rain as an excuse. We didn't against MSU last year.

Mark Schlabaugh says that Walt McFadden is questionable for the Arky game

8:49 PM

On Tiger Talk Chizik said he'll be fine for Arkansas.

"We've tried to handle his health really, really delicately this week. There's a fine line between working, and working him too much. We think he'll be ready to go at game time."

8:51 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

AC is limited with a wrist injury:

"It's a pretty serious injury to that wrist, He's a tough guy. He's not going to miss a game. That wrist is to the point where it is hindering him some because he can't do all the things he wants to do. It's hard for him to grab, but, you know what, that kid is playing every game; he's playing hard every game.''

8:53 PM  
Blogger FearlessFreep said...

Only 6 more games til we have a bye weekend.

8:54 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

And on LB issue:

Chizik said the Tigers may play more defensive backs because of a lack of depth at linebacker.

"We spend countless hours, personnel-wise, in where we can go from here,'' Chizik said. ``We're looking at more nickel stuff and playing another defensive back.

"We definitely have issues there. We know that.''

8:55 PM

Thanks for the updates, Kathy

Football was fun to play in the rain.....baseball not so much.

We watched a HSFB playoff game in 30 deg..15 mph wind...snowstorm about 4 years ago. We lost.

Rain is more uncomfortable. It's easier to bundle up than to stay dry.

FSJ - If most bammers were as nice as you I wouldn't have such a hard time pulling for them. The fact that I seldom do is good news for you - anytime that I pull for them they lose.

Usually my only concern on who to pull for in any college game is how it effects AU. I pull for the team that would most benefit us with a win. So that usually means pulling for the SEC East against the West, the SEC in general against outsiders, and whoever is playing bammer cause its usually in our best interest for bammer to lose.

But I've pulled for your guys in a few bowl games - they always lost. And a few years ago when we needed them to beat LSU so we'd have a chance at winning the division, lost again.

Why this would be of any interest to anyone, I don't know. Guess it wouldn't. But need to post something every once in a while.

This post is definitely one of my weaker one. Hope it doesn't effect the team.

Read this on another site. Our Tiger Walk is intimidating folks. Of course, Petrino knows all about Tiger Walk:

"My friend in Little Rock called me last night, and apparently the AR athletic dept. has decided that no Tiger Walk will be repeated again this week. Only this time, they will block off the area where the buses come into the stadium and no visiting fans will be allowed to gather. She never misses a game there so she is familiar with the set up, but she said that the buses will unload inside a fenced area and no visiting fans will be allowed in the area where the buses enter this part of the stadium"

7:35 AM

Don't they realize when they try to say no Tiger Walk, it just makes more people show up?

7:37 AM  
Blogger Kathy said...

I'm not seeing anything on Eltoro, but I wouldn't be surprised if he stayed home this week. He seemed to be having issues last game standing off by himself during the second half. Didn't seem to be a team player. And the coaches have made a couple of comments about him needing more work. I really thought they would use him this week to rush that QB.

Eddie, that Tiger Walk video was AWESOME!!! It was a great atmosphere to be in--one of the best away game atmospheres I've ever witnessed. I'd have thought other opposing teams would've heard how fired up the team was about not being able to have a real Tiger Walk and just give in and allow it.

8:13 AM

Tennessee's Vol Walk was just weird. they had the team walk in from one direction and then the band came in from the other end of the street after the team. totally separate. very odd i thought.

I thought our Tiger Walk was definitely louder than the Vol Walk last weekend. It was the best away one i've been to since the 2000 bama game in T-town.

Cincy- I tried to link the free side of it, but if you click on free events, you should see the Tennessee Game and that is the video of Tiger Walk.

8:25 AM

Thanks, Eddie, I got to see it. Was it just me, or did most of the players look subdued and a little terrified? I just thought the looks on their faces said they were a little overwhelmed - not sure if that was due to so many people there for TW or to being at TN.

Cool Scottie. I taped that game as well last week and my oldest daughter got a kick out of seeing her Dad on TV. She recognized me very quickly.

I'm having ribs for lunch today and I'll find a BBQ place in Birmingham tomorrow for a post game/pre-Allman Brothers meal.

Cincy- I didn't get to see the players, I with a huge group of fans just above where the buses pulled down to so we couldn't see them, but we stayed and cheered just the same. The parking deck overlooking the Tiger Walk area was packed with Vols fans watching what was going on. They look surprised.

Scottie,

I turned it over there to see three straight drops by Bailey.

RK- Rib & Loin or Sticky Fingers?

This has probably been mentioned here, but I'm still catching up on all the stuff I missed while stuck at work...

From Goldberg's blog:
Ariton High School's Craig Sanders, who recently committed to Auburn, was named the Army Iron Man of the Week, an award given to the best two-way high school player in Alabama. Sanders rushed for 278 yards and three touchdowns on 33 carries and made eight tackles in Ariton's 35-32 win over Kinston last week. The Tigers will sign him as a defensive end.

Rib & Loin

Eddie, not sure if you know this, a year ago Sticky Fingers built a place right next to the Rib & Loin in Hixson. I guess they figured they were a larger chain so they could run out the locals by building right next door.

Well R&L is still there and that Sticky Fingers place in Hixson is no more.

Quality over chain.

I plan to cook bacon tomorrow morning, in solidarity with the Auburn Tigers.

Arkansas could become my favorite opponent, solely for the pork tie-ins.

Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

JayGT's article today is most interesting. I hope that Malzahn's predicability as discussed by the players is something that changes from game to game; i.e. the players know what's coming each game, but the opponents don't because it changes from week to week. I think that's what he was saying.

8:48 AM  
Blogger scottie b, ready for Arky said...

yup, that seals it. bacon & pancakes for breakfast. yummy.

8:48 AM  
Blogger scottie b, ready for Arky said...

i thought the same thing THT.

Blogger Eddie said...

RK- That's awesome. Didn't realize that a) Rib & Loin was in Hixon and b) that Sticky Finger's was their either. I love Rib & Loin. Good stuff. The best place in Hixon is the Federal Bake Shop. Best cakes in the world. Still get all my cakes from there.

all this food talk has got me absolutely starving! I'm so hungry I'm on auto-digest mode. I hope there's enough of me left by the time lunch gets here...

barbecue, puppies, cole slaw, boiled taters, Brunswick stew, sweet tea. YUMMMMMMMMMY!

8:56 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Eddie,

Rib & Loin opened a place in Hixson 7 or 8 years ago.

Is there a Hatin' w/Jay G this morning?

8:59 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I'm feeling confident for tomorrow's game. I'll only get to see part of the first half live :-(

Lord Byron will be DVRing it for me; we got that hooked up on Wednesday!

I can't get the player to play 930am. Anybody else with this problem this morning?

Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

interesting stat from Press-Register...

only 4 SEC coaches have won their first 6 games. Tater Tot's 20 leads the pack. Others are Hall 9, Nutt @Arky 8, and Fulmer 6.

IN CHIZIK WE TRUST!!!

So, apparently we show Jay G too much love. I guess I shouldn't have fainted when I had him sign my habotn shirt and hat :).

9:12 AM  
Blogger scottie b, ready for Arky said...

i gave him a Trooper chest bump, then slapped him on the bum and said 'good game'.

my fault too Eddie. :(

9:13 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

I thought JKEV was security detail for Jay G originally.

9:14 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

I guess I need to get my Jay G tattoos removed.

Blogger Sensi said...

I have nothing to add.

I just wanted to be on this thread.

Props to JKev for New York, New York.

Gold is a great album.

9:18 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Sensi,

As long as you are still picking Arkansas to win, then you will continue to have nothing to add.

9:18 AM  
Blogger Sensi said...

I'll be really impressed if you guys break out "Crazy" from Whiskeytown.

9:19 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Sensi,

I type that and then you compliment Ryan Adams and you redeem yourself...temporarily.

I refuse to be guilted into throwing away my vintage Jay G Tate mug. And my Jay G Tate themed bed linens are just so darn comfortable!

Sticking by my pick.

Phil Steele, Chris Low, Charles Hollis, and I all see it the same way.

Blogger Sensi said...

Big fan of RA.

You dig the Old 97s, RK?

9:21 AM  
Blogger michael said...

Sensi, I'll be honest: if I wasn't an AU fan, I think I would pick Arkansas this weekend. But since I am an AU fan, I think we will win by 17. Does that make sense?

9:21 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Sensi,

I've heard of them, but I don't think I've ever listened to anything of theirs.

9:22 AM  
Blogger Sensi said...

Michael,

Makes perfect sense coming from you.

9:22 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

I think in reading between the lines there Michael is saying Sensi isn't an Auburn fan.

That's what I got from his post at least.
