Welcome to Sanford Stadium


Current time



5:15 p.m. EST.


Hey everyone. As discussed earlier, it's a beautiful day for football here in north Georgia. I'm covering AU/UGA in short sleeves for the first time ever. It's awesome.

UPDATE N. 1: TB Ben Tate will be wearing the No. 4 jersey tonight to honor Zac Etheridge.

UPDATE No. 2: Onterio McCalebb is warming up as expected. He looks fine.

There are a lot of Auburn fans here today.

A win an Auburn goes to a major bowl.

Isn't that amazing?

4:19 PM  
Blogger Loganville Tiger said...

Just bet AU straight up...... I'll take a major pay-off first..... Then the bowl.

4:20 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

It is, I'm just hoping we have seen the offense turn the corner back to what it was before.

Is FAH playing?

4:21 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

They're not really warming up yet.

McCalebb warmed up last week, so that won't be the tell-tale sign.

4:23 PM  
Blogger AU MikeyC said...

Hey Jay G will the ZACK arm band be worn today, or was that just a one game thing?

4:26 PM  
Blogger michael said...

I remember Auburn-GA '02. My then girlfriend now wife wore sandals to the game. She got cold so I took off my socks and let her wear them. Is that more romantic or gross?

You guys pull them through

4:32 PM  
Blogger Loganville Tiger said...

How many days did you have on the socks?

4:33 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Mikey: I'll let you know when they come out for warm-ups.

4:33 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Just the one day, Loganville. And it was cold, so minimum sweat was accumulated I imagine.

I vote it was romantic. But I am biased.

4:34 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Michael, that was very nice of you. I don't think I could have done that.

Wifey doesn't wear sandals, though.

4:35 PM

Michael- very romantic.
War Eagle- Beat Georgia!
Low Country Boil smelling yummy!

My gf/wife also did not wear a jacket, so she stayed in mine with me during the game.

Remember, this was a thrilling game that we lost on a touchdown pass into the endzone right at the end. My wife, who did not grow up in a football loving family, said during the third quarter, "It's really cold, let's just leave. What's the big deal? You can watch it on TV at home." She just had no idea.

4:39 PM

Ah yes, the 2002 UGA game. If Horace Willis could only have jumped on that 4th and 15 play.

FYI: Ben Tate will be wearing the No. 4 jersey tonight to honor Zac Etheridge.

Blogger FearlessFreep said...

When I first met my girlfriend-now wife, it was right before the 1983 UGa game. She was in the AU band, and I told her I envied that she'd get to go to Athens for the game, and told her to be sure to cheer the team on to victory.

"You don't have to tell me twice to do that," she said. "I HATE THE DAWGS!!!!"

Talk about love at first sight. . .

4:52 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Are you admitting you are a puppet, Freep?

4:53 PM  
Blogger michael said...

my last post was in response to your "we are at war with Eurasia" post, bytheway

Stanford Cardinal is whoopin that USC hiney- 28-14 late in the 3rd. Has Carroll lost "it"? It will be strange to see # 4 run the ball, not 44. Let's hope AJ Green is not 100%. I hope he is ok overall.

Anyone else got anything romantic to share?

Blogger FearlessFreep said...

Well, Michael, I have been accused of being a puppet sympathizer.

All lies, I assure you.

4:55 PM  
Blogger Bear82 said...

sorry, as i typed, USC scored. 28-21. sorry, a bit tired.. too much COD MW2 this week. I guess I should have slept and stuff

4:56 PM  
Blogger michael said...

I have always had a theory that Ben Tate would look faster if his number wasn't 44. We will see if I am right.

4:56 PM

My EX-wife was in the '83 band Freep.

4:56 PM  
Blogger FearlessFreep said...

Interesting, LT. . .what instrument did she play?

My wife played trumpet.

4:57 PM  
Blogger Bear82 said...

my wife hates football and anything related to sports. ahh, my solitude is weekends in August- Feb including playoffs...but i guess i still like her after 11 years

4:57 PM  
Blogger Loganville Tiger said...

I could make a real RUDE comment here........ But it was clarinet

4:58 PM  
Blogger Bear82 said...

The Cardinal had a bunch of white boyz that can flat out play.. wonder if UGA will do another blackout/uni change after warmups

5:00 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Bear82 - glad to hear someone else is in my boat. I used to get such dirty looks on weekends during football season, but she has come to terms with my love of football. Her in-laws still think I am a total weirdo.

Just a few weeks ago we were at her dad's house on a Saturday, and he just couldn't grasp why I would watch the Tennessee-South Carolina game. "Bu you're not even a fan of either team. Why would you watch it?" BECAUSE IT IS FOOTBALL, AND FOOTBALL IS AWESOME!!!

5:01 PM  
Blogger Bear82 said...

officials just gave UF about 15-20 yds of posession; not reviewing a knee on the ground. South Car.'s def looks like melted butter and UF is the knife

Michael: I took a small TV to my own wedding to watch the AU LSU game we won 31-0. Not GA rivalry but it was the first thing I tought of.

5:03 PM  
Blogger Bear82 said...

agreed, Michael; every late July, I just go to B&N with her, drop about 200 bucks on the new books that have come out over the year, and now that she has discovered hulu.com, she is set for the season. i get my laptop, my sony bravia, and enjoy the days. It is a sweet life.

She learned well!

Let Bates have a clean shot at Green's ribs and he'll a tad slower for the rest of the night...


Tate wearing #4 will look odd... let's hope the missing number gives him an extra pep in his step and he runs for about 2 bills...

5:06 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

I don't recall an Auburn player ever doing what Tate is doing. That is pretty cool. Players change their number, but they don't usually use another players number.

5:06 PM

Where is your wife from Michael, doesn't sound like a family from the south.

Agreed SFC..... Very Cool

Win, loose or draw tonight, that is class...

What channel will the game be on I have stupid Nascar on my TV

McCalebb is out there. I don't see any unusual bracing or taping on his troublesome ankle.

5:18 PM

pick 6 stanford.. i love to see socal lose... i hope above all hope fla and UAT both lose, and i hope TX loses in BIG 12 CG, and Boise St. and TCU go undefeated. I really really really want to see what the BCS system would do then..

5:21 PM  
Blogger FearlessFreep said...

Hmmmmm. . .LT, would your potentially rude comment have something to do with Roxanne Pulitzer?? ? ;-]

5:21 PM  
Blogger dnatl said...

After USCe has worn jerseys that replaced player names with various core values of the military, rumor is obama has asked AU & UGA to help him with his catch words - AU and Chizik have the hope, but looks like Richt and UGA will get the change.

5:22 PM  
Blogger Bear82 said...

49-21 stanford... goodness, the LA coliseum is quiet. i think i heard a pin drop... no, just a 7-2 team ranked #9 being overrated. Stan just went for 2 while up 48-21 with 6:47 in 4th. classless? no, Carroll deserves it. he would/does run the score up when he can

Are we finally ready to admit that USC just isn't that good this year?

I'll admit that

Jay- speaking of HS playoffs, Daphne (6-6, 4-6 regular season) beat undefeated Fairhope last night. Auburn HS will face them next week. I was a coach at Daphne, when Savarese was there. any chance you come on down to lower AL for that one?

5:27 PM

Buck Belue(sp) on 680 The Fan called a 4 loss season for them in August..... I thought he was crazy ...... Profit

Switching between two very good games on 360 right now - Ohio State/Iowa and Nebraska/Kansas.

Iowa is getting the ball back with with just under a minute, tied at 24.

5:30 PM  
Blogger FearlessFreep said...

So, Bear, you worked for Savarese?

Why did Pat Dye hate him so much? Or am I thinking of another AL HS coach?

5:32 PM  
Blogger Kristina said...

So I took a nap and woke up and found out Tuberville is coaching both Iowa and Ohio State...how did that happen?

5:32 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

Well that interception really sucks.

I know we have given Iowa grief on this blog, but I hate Ohio State! Go Hawkeyes!

I'm predicting a Texas stomping of UF/BAMA in the title game.

Iowa's offensive plan for OT is interesting -- an incomplete pass, 2 big losses, and an interception.

5:39 PM  
Blogger Kristina said...

And playing for OT worked about as well for Iowa...

5:40 PM  
Blogger FearlessFreep said...

Ok, this is wierd. . .its as though ESPN.com and Gamecast are stuck about 20 minutes in the past.

Anyone else seeing that, or is it just me?

Refresh doesn't help.

Looks like the 'Cocks are imploding

5:41 PM  
Blogger Jet Says Burn Bulldogs! said...

I think Dye's issue with Savarese dates back to Cornelius Bennett when Savarese was at Ensley.

5:41 PM

Altho I probably just jinxed OSU by saying that.

5:43 PM  
Blogger Kristina said...

Nope....

5:43 PM

Chiz can't even answer if there will be a change at punt returner.

"there might be, well see how the game goes".

5:43 PM  
Blogger Jet Says Burn Bulldogs! said...

OK, Sean McDonough, that's a tad over the top.

5:44 PM

Demond Washington apparently will be your punt-return man tonight.

5:45 PM

Ohio State in the Rose..... What a joke.... At least they ain't in the BCS championship......

The Chiz sounded pretty confident in his pregame talk on the radio.

5:50 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Yea, I am pretty bummed about Ohio State not being in the BCS chammptionship too. It was a nice tradition of the SEC champ always playing Ohio State for the BSNC.

5:50 PM

What was my prediction?

i Think it was:

AU - 34

UGA - 20

5:50 PM  
Blogger FearlessFreep said...

ESPN.com still in a time warp.

Showing Iowa and tOSU tied at 24 with 2:42 to go in the 4th.

5:51 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

Can they finish 20 laps in Nascar in 9 minutes? Going to be the pits if they don't finish before the games starts.

5:51 PM

FF,
I noticed the same thing. It was goofed up last night also.

5:52 PM

They will break away Cincy.....

5:52 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

Yes, as long as there aren't wrecks.

5:52 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

Your crazy LT, no way they break away from the end of a race.

5:53 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

I need Idaho to score 8 points in the next 27 seconds to make my pick correct.

5:53 PM  
Blogger FearlessFreep said...

SOmeone go to ESPN.com and tell me I'm not crazy.

Not necessarily in that order.

5:53 PM

Fearless,
You aren't crazy. ESPN is behind.

5:55 PM

Iowa and tOSU still tied, :59 left in the 4th.

I saw that on 360 exactly 25 minutes ago.

Pretty strange. I've seen them fall behind individual games before, but it appears that they are about a half hour behind on everything.

What's going on with UF/SC?

5:56 PM

Le Game Thread is UPZ.

5:56 PM

I think they will show the beginning of the Auburn game on ESPN news or one of hte other ESPN channels if the race is still on.
