Jet - I can't speak for Jay's chat, but since that is far more than the "underwears only" requirement at the liveblog, you better not show your face.

1st question for Jay G....Will we see Aycock this week? Next question, since Chizik and the Tigers are always choppin' wood, wear can I pick this up...I need some for my fireplace?

10:09 AM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Wood isn't as cheap as it once was. I'd say $150/cord for that wood. It's well-aged.

As for Aycock, I hear he's doing well in redshirt workouts.

Turns out I've got a meeting that conflicts anyway ... you kids have fun with that.

By the way, 30 minute of Alvin, 15 minutes to get my contracts for review, and 30 seconds of review.

I would love to hear this Alvin guy on a rant. I've never heard of him. You need to video it sometime, Jet, and post it on youtube.

Tux only? That leaves me out. I'm wearing scrubs.

Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

Jet, your comment reminds me that I'm all riled up over the inability for people to recognize the meaning of black tie. Our invitation clearly says "black tie" at the bottom, but I've gotten a half dozen calls asking if it meant tux, or if a dark suit would be okay (including one from my father, who would have to wear a tux-which he already owns- even if it was a less formal affair). Where did these people learn to dress, and are their internets broken? I google "black tie wedding" and several very specific pages come up. I'm up in arms.

Jet-My senior year of HS in Montgomery is where I heard of AH. The cheerleader tryouts were held and only 10 girls were chosen, all caucasion. Alvin did not like it, so the settlement was every girl that made the semi final list was put on the squad. We had 20 cheerleaders that year.

It's not just the SEC.

From the HABOTN inbox:

DENVER – WAC Commissioner Karl Benson today announced the suspension of WAC football replay official Michael Goshima. Goshima was in the replay booth for last weekend’s game between San Jose State and Boise State.

The suspension was based on a play where a runner was ruled short of a first down and was confirmed by the replay booth after a review. After further inspection, the runner clearly made the first down and the call should have been reversed.

My next encounter was when he and others protested a the Capitol about the flag on top. There was a fence around the Capitol. National news was there since JJackson, JReed, AHolmes, the Lewis clown from GA and others. A few were arested for tryong to climb the fence to 'take the flag down'. I was standing about 25 yards from that group just spectating. As others got arrested, the TV crews were shutting down, AHolmes shouted to keep the cameras rolling and he grabbed the fence. He was so heavy he did not get 2 feet off the ground, but the po-po took him in. He got his 5 minutes of fame.

Now back to fball.

It's one thing to get it wrong on the field, but to get it wrong in the booth is just bad if the replay official had a clear view of the play.

10:47 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Rivals still very high on Dyer and Reed committing. That's good to see.

10:49 AM  
Blogger LuvAU41 said...

So, now we can't even trust the replay officials???!!! If that's the case, we might as just scrap replay and let the play stand as called on the field.

10:51 AM  
Blogger Jet said...

My take on Alvin is this: he is actually a genuine, effective watchdog of the taxpayers' dollars, and probably understands as much or more about that than anyone here.

The problem is that he gets wound up in some rants, turning many of them into racial issues (that aren't) and makes many outlandish statements he knows aren't true. I know today he said something things that are demonstrably false.

His constituents, however, love him. Or least they have every quadrennium since 1974.

10:53 AM  
Blogger Jet said...

I concur. Scrap replay. Coaches make mistakes. Players make mistakes. Why can't the officials?

It was a better game without it.

My only problem with replay is that the officials have a very liberal view of indisputable evidence. I don't mind the guy in the booth failing to overturn something called on the field , alleged clear view or not, I just hate when they overturn something that is still even slightly questionable.

Hey, Hotties!

I agree with Jet that Alvin does some good, although it is difficult to take some of the other with it.

I remember when the Demo national convention was in San Francisco and Alvin ranted on national TV about there being no African Americans working at his hotel. Of course, SF's larger minorities are Hispanic and Asian, and they had plenty of them employed--didn't matter to Alvin.

Back to football--beat the Paladins!

Queeks draw was trying to say Quick draw with a slight twist. I was saying Todd is going to shoot those Paladins down.

11:14 AM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Ephemeral, that is still not politically correct. The hotel should employ at least one black, even if they must pay for his relocation. Of course, referring to the guy a token is okay.

11:15 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

WTC- I agree. Time for some payoff. Coach Luper was on Jox this morning and said he was anticipating getting some very good news on the recruiting front over the next couple of weeks.

Luv- The hockey man cave was nice. It was one of my fav's as well except for the TV. All that for a small tv, they could have done better there.

Blogger missinit said...

FSJ, I've often wondered about this....

Why do you enjoy HABOTN so much? You are such an integral part of this blog I couldn't imagine it without you.

I am sure SOMEWHERE out there there are bama fans like you but you are so atypical from any I come in contact with...(but then I do live in Georgia )

Seriously do you have a bama blog that you follow and comment on as much as you do here? Or is it that you find us irresistible, interesting, and intelligent, you know, the typical Auburn fan,:) ?

Just curious!!!

11:59 AM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Oh Luv..

I don't have season tickets. I gave them up during the Shula error...and due to the fact that I had a new baby at the time.

Now the waiting list is out of sight.

I pick and choose the games I want to attend and go to those. The LSU ones are too expensive from what I have seen.

missinit, excellent post! I have often wondered the same thing.

Interesting. There is another reporter who has a live chat one hour after this. Could this be the start of a live blogging war?

At their peak, they were as high as $550! Ridiculous! The article said prices were mainly based on fans' expectations.

12:03 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

missinit...

It's like this....I found HABOTN by accident. I "used" to read ITAT during football season. Sometime around late September or October of last year HABOTN was linked there and I clicked the link. The rest, as they say, is history.....Just kidding. I started reading and occasionally commenting. I made a decision to up front say I was a Bama fan. Nobody told me to leave or was even the least bit rude to me. In fact, people were downright friendly. Jay is a great writer, and there was also a good and honest discussion going on. Which is totally different from the message boards I follow.

This place is like I envision crack being. I'm addicted.

I really only follow one Bama board, which is Tiderinsider. I only read it for the recruiting articles and to read Cecil Hurt, who is a poster there. I rarely post anything there. In fact when we found out about my daughter's illness, this is the only board that I mentioned anything about it on.

I did used to be a member of a great mixed school board run by UT fans (Gridscape-Opponets). Freep was a member there too I think. However it imploded when all the stuff about Phil Fulmer came to light.

I also kinda like being the oddball. Must be a personality defect. :-P

Y'all are stuck with me.

Actually, Steve..I look forward to the two weeks of hate coming up. I enjoyed that last year.

To be honest, I must admit that any stereotypes I had of Auburn fans or Auburn in general have been shattered in my time here.

I actually have enjoyed watching Auburn this year and honestly have a hard time rooting against them in any game other than one. I guess because winning makes you all happy...So I only hope y'all are miserable the day after Thanksgiving this year.

12:15 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Great having you here, FSJ.

Far fetched hypothetical here, but is there any Bama board akin to HABOTN where I, as an Auburn fan, can attach myself to and post things as a respectful Auburn and be treated respectfully in kind?

12:19 PM  
Blogger missinit said...

Awhhhhh, FSJ

I know God broke the mould when he made you. There can't possibly be another bammer like you...and I mean that in a good way.....

And by the way give little Abbie a kiss and a hug from all of us, I'm sure she needs one today.

.....heck, I need one today!

Y'all have fun now, ya hear! I'll be rectangular but I will have my "underwears" on!!!!

12:21 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

E-Bro...

Not that I know of.

There are Auburn fans (and UT fans) on Tiderinsider, but they do are undercover. You only see them when things are going bad or there is bad news about something.

I wish there was a Bama board like this one. I think the tone that Jay and the posters here demand keeps things moving in the right direction.

12:21 PM

Thanks, FSJ.

I guess that sort of begs the question then: why doesn't the Advertiser's Bama beat writer start up a similar blog? Or has he?

Not calling the guy out (don't even know who it is) or anything, just wondering.

12:24 PM  
Blogger michael said...

I would like to think I am the main reason the Hotties act so rationally compared to all other internet boards. If you don't agree, then GO SCREW YOURSELF!!!

As a side note, there are many other bama fans that aren't obnoxious. It's just something about the whole commenting on the internet thing that brings the crazies out of the woods, both bama fans and Auburn fans (checked Al.com recently? Not much of a difference if any between the moron Auburn and moron Alabama fans there)

12:26 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

E-Bro: No. I don't think that place exists.

As for our Alabama writer (Tim Gayle) doing a blog ... I don't think that's his bag.

He's kinda old-school.

12:27 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Thanks Luv and missinit.

E-Bro, I don't know. I have a feeling it has something to do with the fact that Jay is very techno-savvy and is ultra dedicated.

Not everybody is like that..and that's not a slam at anybody at the Advertiser, Press-Register or Bammerham News.

12:28 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Michael, every school in the SEC (except maybe Vandy) has fans of an unsavory nature.

I guess I'd like to think it reflects well on Auburn that a place like the HABOTN does exist. Anybody know any other similar sites for any other schools across the conference?

Thanks for the feedback, JayG.

12:32 PM

I think Jay's presence in the comments section as a participator and not just Comment Behavior Authority Figure Dude has gone a long way in drawing people in and then getting them to behave once they get here. It is a good thing to be an accessible blogger.

12:32 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

E-Bro,

The Gridscape Opponets board was GREAT...except that it had a little more smack talk than HABOTN.

People were friendly and tailgated together though..Bama, Auburn, UT, & even a UF fan or two.

Heck, even Roy Adams was a member. But that all changed with the Fulmer stuff came out. The crazy people killed that off quick.

12:32 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

BTW, I think what Meyer did yesterday was pretty brilliant, and for the record, can't stand the guy.

But after seeing Spikes take a beating the first few days of this week, he turned all the attention back on him and off of his players. He might get fined or suspended, but it won't matter in the end (they are playing Vandy after all). He will have deflected much of the negative attention off of Spikes and the team can move on.

12:34 PM  
Blogger Nervous jhag said...

I have never found a blog of any other school that is as professional but yet casual as the HABOTN..either they have good info but little or no comments about the articles...or they are just sites from college kids talking about getting trashed before the games of the school they go to etc.
HABOTN truly is one of a kind
losers with socks, red cup rebellion don't compare
EDSBS is great info but not much commenting

12:34 PM

All anyone is talking about today is his comments..

I had Vandy fans talk trash to me in 2003, we hadn't scored a TD all year and they just came off waxing UTC by 50.

After we beat them (I think it was45-7) in 2003. Me and my brother were leaving the stadium and these guys on a rooftop were still ripping on us personally and on Auburn.

That's the only time I've ever dealt with bad Vandy fans.

Last year most of them just felt sorry for us as we were leaving.

I know he beat both UA & AU...and for some reason I thought it was in the same year but I could be wrong.

yeah, we won in '88. USM got us in '90 and '91, though.

All I know is Favre stole Mary away from Ted and Dom.

I guess he's no longer "Pac-Man".

how does Favre rank among drunk co-eds?

For a game winning drive - I'll take Elway

Blogger scottieus etheridge said...

i'm sure he tops that chart too PF. well, at least he did 10 years ago.

Blogger E-Bro said...

How about this hypothetical. The opposing team is 80 yards away from a touchdown that wins the game and breaks your heart. Who do you want quarterbacking that team that ensures they don't score and your team wins?

I might go with...Buck Belue (assuming he doesn't have Herschel or Lindsay Scott).

E-Bro...

I'll go with 2008 Jonathan Crompton..

2009...not so much.

1:10 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Why not Mike Shula scottie?

:-P

1:11 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Editor's Note: you have to pick a QB that was on a half-decent team at some point and isn't a total waste of space (i.e., any Vandy QB ever aside from Cutler).

Blogger mytommyd said...

Wow that's a WHOLE bunch of stats for just one super bowl ring. :D

1:12 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

That's what I was thinking at first, FSJ. You might also consider 2009 Jevan Snead, though I do think he is handicapped by a poor offensive line and takes more criticism than he probably deserves.

1:13 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

well that changes things E-Bro.

I'll go with Stan White..

No way, IMO that Auburn wins the 93 game if Stan doesn't get hurt.

He's made a career out of that season...but Patrick Nix (and the receiver...was it Frank Sanders) won the game.

1:13 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

Trent Dilfer. Man won a superbowl on his defense's back. But nobody wants him to have to win the game for them.

1:14 PM  
Blogger ballin said...

Vince Sutton

1:15 PM  
Blogger scottieus etheridge said...

yup, my boy Frank Sanders (check my Facebook pics) and James Bostic won that '93 game. good times.

1:15 PM  
Blogger Jet said...

FSJ ...

That's why you will find underneath layers of sod near the 35 yard line at the north end of Pat Dye Field at Jordan-Hare Stadium, a pellet fired from a secret sniper's perch that was actually the source of the Stan's injury.

Just sayin'.

1:15 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Michael Vick is my answer.

1:15 PM  
Blogger Jet said...

To answer the question, Tony Romo.

1:16 PM  
Blogger scottieus etheridge said...

oh, and Mike Shula=BOOOOOO. heckuva coach, though.

1:16 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Yes, FSJ, it was Frank Sanders.

Stan White might have built a career off of that (and the 1990 Tennessee game), but he's still a good guy. Always liked him.

1:16 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

How bout Brian Burgdorf?

1:17 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Jet..

When Stan went down, honest to goodness..I turned to my roommate and said that was the worst thing that can happen to us.

1:18 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Oh..I am sure he's a good guy E-Bro.

Jay made a career out of the 92 defense...and the 1994 UGA game.

It happens. He's a good guy too.

1:20 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Fran Tarkenton or Archie Manning

1:20 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Burgdorf was a jerk.. I played basketball against him before we attended Bama.

He also lived in my apartment complex.

1:20 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

That '94 Bama-UGA game had some of the worse secondary play (by UGA) I've ever seen if I remember correctly.

Great game, though.

1:22 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Later Hotties. Out for now. Sorry I'll miss the Q&A.

1:23 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

The thing people don't remember from that game is that Proctor kicked a field goal that bounced off the upright and through with time expiring in the first half to make the score 21-10 UGA....that ended up being the difference because we won by 2.

You are right though...Toderick Malone was wide open the entire second half.

1:24 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Nobody is going to mention Jamie Howard for opposing QB?

1:32 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

was he the QB during the AU/LSU game where Curley Hallman kept throwing the ball?

1:33 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

FSJ, that's the guy.

1:34 PM  
Blogger scottieus etheridge said...

Howard helped make Brian Robinson & Chris Shelling All-Americans. so thank you Jamie Howard. thanks a million.

1:36 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Ken Alvis- I thought he would be All-American. OH well.

1:38 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Can't believe that nobody mentioned Brodie Croyle (in the fetal position).

Honk if you sacked Brodie.

1:38 PM  
Blogger scottieus etheridge said...

Brodie had a good 2005 season. he just couldn't outrun the Predator McClover....or anyone else on the Auburn defense that day.

1:39 PM  
Blogger scottieus etheridge said...

and since you asked....

HONK, HONK, HONK, HONK, HONK, HONK, HONK, HONK, HONK, HONK, HONK.

there you go, all 11 of them. :)

man, i'm feeling the hate today aren't i?

scottie...

My two best friends and I watched that game with an Auburn fan that is a friend of ours...

Worst football experience of my life.

In fact it was soooooooo bad that we vowed revenge because of that, even though it took three more years to accomplish.

He got married in the summer of 2008. At his bachelor party he passed out cigars to all of us. My two bammer friends & I all three looked at each other and said...no we are saving these until we beat Auburn. We made sure he was engulfed in cigar smoke after last year's game.

I'm really happy fa-you.

Imma let you finish ...

BUT ... Chat starts at 2 p.m.

Be there or be rectangular.

Opposing QB - Tim Tebow anyone?

1:46 PM  
Blogger LuvAU41 said...

I was in the Upper Deck for the Sack Game. Great view of all the sacks from up there. That was THE BEST AU-UAT game I've ever been to. Granted, I haven't been to nearly as many as all of you.

Benton / Blake / Hawthorne- A couple of catchable balls thrown their way might ease the drought.
