Hey everyone. I used to do a somewhat elaborate first post each day, but it became too cumbersome.

Do you really need links to every story I've written since my days at the Kentucky Kernel?

So here's what I'm thinking: A shorter version that includes only what you need.

Winnipeg Jets? Random stuff rolls through my brain all the time.

AJC is report this on the UT'hood....

Three University of Tennessee football players were arrested early Thursday for allegedly trying to rob three men outside a Knoxville convenience store.

The incident occurred shortly before 2 a.m. at a convenience store on Cumberland Avenue, Knoxville police spokesman Darrell DeBusk said.

Nu'Keese Richardson, a freshman wide receiver from Pahokee, Fla., and Janzen Jackson, a freshman defensive back from Lake Charles, La., and Michael Edwards, a freshman defensive back from Cleveland, were arrested a short time later. Each was charged with three counts of attempted armed robbery, DeBusk said.

DeBusk said that the victims told police that they were sitting inside their vehicle, parked next to a Toyota Prius, while a friend was inside the Pilot store and were approached by a black male wearing a black hoodie and brandishing a black handgun.

"The victims stated that a black male then exited from the passenger side of the Prius, wearing a black hoodie, walked around to the front passenger door of their car, opened it, and stated, ‘give us everything you've got,' " DeBusk said.

The victims told police that they all showed their wallets to the suspects and showed them that they did not have any money. A third black male then approached and told the other two suspects, "We've got to go," DeBusk said. The suspects then got into the Prius and drove away.

Police spotted the Prius a short time later and stopped the vehicle and arrested the three players.

"In plain view, officers observed two black hoodies on the back sat. Underneath the back seat, officers located a black, CO2-powered pellet gun.

The suspects were taken back to the store, and the victims positively identified Edwards and Richardson as the two who approached their vehicle, DeBusk said.

Tennessee athletics director Mike Hamilton said the school would evaluate the situation before deciding on any disciplinary action.

"At this time we are currently evaluating the circumstances surrounding an incident involving Mike Edwards, Janzen Jackson and Nu'Keese Richardson," Hamilton said. "Any decisions or comments regarding their status will not be made until the evaluations are complete."


Just what were they thinking???

I am having this wonderful vision. Imagine watching your favorite football team on the tube when suddenly a player scores. They flash up a picture of the player. Suddenly you realize "Hey, that's the guy that stole my wallet". Now, those must be special moments for UT fans.

They make their mark, decide to go through with it, fail miserably, and could potentially ruin their lives as a result. Simply pathetic.

KKK to march at Ole Miss

This has to absolutely kill Ole Miss in recruiting. The students started chanting "The South Will Rise Again" at football games, the University President told the students to stop it and now the Klan is getting involved. This will hurt them. I can't believe the students started this crap in the first place.

Eddie...
The ole miss students have had thatas part of one of their cheers for a very long time. Their president is just now making a big deal out of it...
But, I do agree... with the president making it a public battle between himself and the students, and now the KKK getting involved and making a public display... there is no way it doesn't harm their recruiting.
And, if I'm not mistaken... they are expected to have a lot of recruits on campus this weekend for their game vs. UT.

10:59 AM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

I doubt the Students expected the Klan to show up because of a silly chant and act of defiance against the leadership.

Really, what did the Chancellor expect from the students? You can't tell college kids that they can't say something and expect that they'll do anything other than say it louder.

I would love to attend the game in Athens this weekend... but I have been banned form attending AU/Uga games.

11:00 AM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

banned? do tell.

11:01 AM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

More of a self-imposed ban...
Of the 6 (or is it 7? I forget...) AU/UGA games I have attended... AU has not won a single one of them.
Therefore... for Auburn's sake... I will keep my butt a safe distance from the stadium for the game...

11:04 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

D. Miller- Your right, and I agree that the President should have handled this better.

Why are you banned from the game, do share?

Yes D Miller, you are banned. Way to take it for the team.

Hey, maybe the KKK has a branch that supports recruiting. You never can tell. I am not sure which is worse for Ole Nutt, the chant or the publicity this has brought. I mean, Mississippi didn't really need something else to make them look backward in comparison to the rest of the U.S.

i have been to 4 games in Athens and Georgia is 0-4.

97, 99, & 01 AU games.

98 Georgia Tech.

thus, i will be back in Athens this weekend. 5 & 0 baby!!!!!!!!

or 0 & 5. whichever.

either way, GEORGIA WILL LOSE!

11:29 AM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

I'm a game behind Eddie. Didn't do the 1995 game, so I'm 4-2 in Athens.

11:34 AM  
Blogger scottieus etheridge said...

so, from a quick scientific study.... if you want AU to beat UGA in Athens in no way can D.Miller go. you have a 60% chance if Eddie is in attendance and you are all but guaranteed an Auburn victory if Scottie B is there!

SWEET.

11:35 AM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

ummmmm 5/7 is around 70%, Scottie, not 60%.

11:37 AM  
Blogger scottieus etheridge said...

i consulted with Jan Terri. we maintain that 60% is correct PF.

11:56 AM

So...
Me - 0% winning percentage
Eddie - 71%
Scottie B Etheridge - 100%
Loganville - 75%

Since I'm staying home, I am not a detraction...
So... if the 3 of you are in attendance that gives Auburn a combined 80% shot at winning.

11:56 AM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

Kathy...
I will be at a safe distance. I'm staying in B'ham Saturday.

My sister on the other hand will be at the game. I just hope and pray that it doesn't run in the family. This will be her first AU/UGA game and first visit to Athens. I hope it's a good one.

So, any stats on you watching the game on TV, Miller? Perhaps if you only look at the screen via a mirror?

12:03 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

I watch every game I can at least on tv...so I haven't kept accurate stats on that one...

We did go 11-0 in '93 when all I could do was listen to the radio broadcast... but that was Fyffe broadcasting and not Bramblett, so I'm not sure if it translates.

I'll do whatever is necessary to secure a win this Saturday though.

12:05 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

I still haven't gotten over the loss of Jim Fyffe. When I think of Auburn football, I think of his voice.

12:07 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

I thought we'd agreed that the 3 earlier losses were Kristina's fault. If that's so, shouldn't we be more concerned about her gameday plans?

12:07 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

Kristina is largely to blame for the earlier losses.

But, I can't risk attending the game... for the sake of all AU fans.

I was definitely spoiled with Fyffe too.

Probably why I am No Fan At All of Bramblett. He is a necessary evil to be able to listen to a game when not on TV or I am away from the house.

12:10 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Wait a minute, the 3 earlier losses are squarely on Cincy. She entered into a verbal agreement late in the second half of the UT game and then didn't close on the place until just before the Ole Miss game. Any coincidence that we played very badly during the whole deal and have looked almost normal since??????

12:10 PM

I too, miss Jim Fyffe.... The Sanders call in the UF game will forever be etched in my memory.

Good point Eddie. Perhaps that's something I missed in my HABOTN absence. Along those lines, is Sean still an idiot?

From the other thread, someone mentioned an AU player who robbed a pizza delivery guy.

For some reason that reminds me of the guy about whom the following was once reported in the NY Times:

"He once arrived at a high school football practice taped in Ace bandages from head to toe. One day before high school basketball practice he hid all 16 basketballs in a friend's car. He used to jack up the cars of Auburn freshmen and take off the tires.

And at Auburn he once took his 22-inch machete and ran yelling through a group of 500 high school cheerleaders at a clinic, wildly waving the knife and sending the frightened cheerleaders scurrying and screaming.

There's more. He shot an arrow with a huge bow in a meeting with a Southeastern Conference official over agents. Before bed check one night at Auburn, he took off all of his clothes, greased his body, put white baby powder in his hair, stood behind the door with his machete and jumped out at the coach making rounds, yelling and waving the machete, as his coach raced down the hall."


There were giants in those days.

I remember that same guy pretty much single-handedly winning the GT game in 1987.

there'd be a backlash if they did and won, much less lose.

I'm referring to Freep's post, by the way.

Just listed my 4 SEC Championship tickets on eBay......

Hope it is the right bait to catch me a LARGE 'Bammer willing to give me about 4X the investment....

Scott C- Is it Aundrey Bruce?

Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

You got it, Eddie. He may have been crazy and an NFL bust, but he was a bad-@SS on the football field for AU.

Bears vs. 49ers is gonna be a pillow-fight in panties

Who we talking about - I don't recall any of those stories from '87.

what i've been saying all year. Look at Aundrey Bruce. We need the dominant d-line and its okay if they are clinically insane. JUST WIN BABY

Good point Craig.....

I remember how excited I was Atlanta got Bruce......Then the embarrassment soon followed......

Who likes NFL on Thursday night? I prefer over bad College games.

I love the 49ers ... and yes, they do suck.

no to NFL Thursday.

This may not be a very good NFL game Eddie- I have issues with both Cutler and Singletary. Beats North Texas vs. Ball St. though......

Cutler is such a Cry Babay - but a hell of an arm.....

6:31 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Have the 49ers played the Bears since Singletary has been the coach? He might have a flashback and tackle one of his own players tonight. That would add some interest.

You know what makes the NFL interesting.....FANTASY FOOTBALL!

I am 8-1 and tops in my league that pays out 450 to the winner. Playoffs are close to a lock for me. I am playing Devin Hester tonight, so i'm intrigued by the game due to that.

Fantasy Football does make it a lot more interesting. I made the championship game in the league I played in last year, but this year is frustrating the crap out of me. I'm leading my league in points, but I'm 3-6. Everybody has a freakin' career day against me!

Hmmm, nobody ovah heah, nobody ovah theah.

Scott C- That was me about 3 years ago. I got just about everybody's best day but led the league in points at the end but out of the playoffs. The odd thing is I won it the next year by picking about 4 or 5 of my starters off of waivers. It was unreal and I had no business, but I got on a hot streak and just barely got in the playoffs and won it all and was probably about 6th out 10 teams in overall points. Go figure. So far, I lead in points and wins, so I'm feeling good right now.

I'm 7-2 in second place. I'm about 15 points out of first. My weak spot is QB, and I have Cutler playing tonight.

I've won the league the last two years... but this is my weakest team.
