For your reading pleasure

Hey everyone. So I took a little time yesterday to pen a piece about how the SEC bowl situation has evolved this week. You may find it interesting because, as you'd expect from an Auburn beat writer, Les Tigres are discussed.

Please enjoy: Some of the best drama comes before bowl games

I'd like to see Auburn play Northwestern. I was really into Northwestern's 1994 renaissance, loved watching Pat Fitzgerald play linebacker, would love to interview head coach Pat Fitzgerald.

On the other hand, Wisconsin was popular in the Tate household Wednesday night.

SO barnhardt thinks Right makes a strong push to get Kirby Smart as the UGA DC. Says Right makes the call Sunday. I think Kirby either went to school there or has coached there.

wtc - I thought they were keeping the fired coaches onboard through the bowl game?

8:39 AM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

From Wiki:

Smart played was a defensive back for the University of Georgia Bulldogs. As a senior, he was a first-team All-SEC pick. He finished his career with 13 interceptions, which is currently fourth on the all-time Georgia ranks. He was also a four-time member of the SEC Academic Honor Roll.

Smart began his coaching career with the University of Georgia in 1999, serving one season as an administrative assistant

THT,

I'd love to, but the only way I was going to make it to a bowl game is if it was just a day trip and you unfortunately can't make a day trip from Chattanooga to Tampa.

8:42 AM  
Blogger wtc said...

I do not know if they are or not. Ilistened to Barnhardt this AM and says Richt will call and make a big offer. Not hatin' but he says Richt knows that few assts stay more than 3-4 years with Saban and that Richt knows it is about time for some of the staff to leave from over there.

It might not happen, but Barnhardt has been right more often than not.

I'm leaning on an AU match up with Northwestern as well. We have played the Badgers twice, time for a new opponent in my opinion.

9:07 AM  
Blogger wtc said...

I know nothing of the coaches and any rift they may have had. It would be naive to think no one will take a run at either of those guys. UAT has had a pretty good D for the past few years. Some will leave. Someof these guys might not like the stress that Saban puts on them. If you are not the head guy, I think you can take only so much pressure before you think it is time to move on.

9:10 AM

I would definitely like to see Northwestern over Wisconsin. That would be more entertaining after witnessing Wisconsin play Auburn twice already this decade.

WTC- Take a look at the UGA Rivals Coaching Hot Board, it gives an interesting run down of their DC Candidates. I do agree with you, I think Kirby Smart is the most likeliest coach. Coaching for Saban is just plain tough. Coaches that must have enjoyed or enjoy working with Saban seem to be Bobby Williams & Muschamp.

I thought I heard somewhere that the DC position at UAT was just a figurehead and that Saban is the mastermind and true DC. Then again that may have been from a bama fan.

Blogger §teveFC said...

Excellent article, Jay. It does appear Auburn has been the big winner here, and I think Malzahn's offense has a lot to do with this. Kentucky and even Tennessee seem to be winners here. I know Tennessee fans are disappointed, but they could have faired worse than the Peach Bowl. Ask Georgia or South Carolina, who I consider the biggest losers here. Arkansas didn't fair that well either. Is the system fair? Probably not, but it worked for Auburn this time, so I am grateful.

I can't imagine a scenario where the BaFla loser doesn't end up in the Sugar Bowl. It will be interesting to see how many teams end up undefeated though.

How does the large number of Auburn alums in the Tampa area factor in to all of this, or does it at all?

PF: Not too much.

9:30 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Ok Hotties, you want an interesting question to ask yourself, here it is. Would you rather see Bama fall to the Capitol One Bowl after losing to Florida on Saturday and having Auburn bumped down, or Bama in the Sugar Bowl with Auburn in the Outback.

There is a 0% chance of that happening, just food for thought. What's your opinion?

9:30 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Big Snacks- How big is the Auburn contingent in Tampa?

9:31 AM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

PF, I don't really know that much about Auburn grads in that area, but selling tickets is definitely the driver here.

9:33 AM  
Blogger wtc said...

I think the only way the loser of the game this weekend doesn't make a BSC game, is that it becomes a 'big' win, which is by maybe 18 or more points. The loser may fall behind TCU and BOISE and CInCY.
I don't see that happening but just sayin'. Also, I could see it more if UAT is the loser, since they have had close games with LSU and AU lately and UF not so much of a tough game lately.
That is not hatin on UAT (as much as I don't mind it) but just thinking how that scenario could owrk out.

9:35 AM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

wtc, I was thinking a lopsided SECCG would probably be the only way, too. It just doesn't appear likely. Both teams have solid defenses.

Not too far behind B'Ham for third, from what I've been told Eddie. There's a lot of scholarship money coming out of that area.

I know after the Auburn/Florida game a couple of years ago that there was a lot of Auburn traffic into the Tampa area, then just gator fans the rest of the way south. It's rare that I drive through Tampa and not see a car or two with Auburn regalia/livery.

I could do a day trip to a bowl game, even an overnight stay, but Tampa would require more than that.

From what I know Eric Mack really wants to come to Auburn, but he has one small problem...baby momma dramma.

10:17 AM

Everything being equal, Mack winds up at AU. Not sure everything is equal though. He has something that is keeping him close to home. AU is working on a way to help with that.

He would be a huge get.

AU also needs to land the two DL from GA.

Seastrunk and Reed have both set their official visit dates for Jan 15-17.

The staff is looking at Ken Adams as a possible January enrollee. Shouldn't affect any other targets, they just want to make sure they get 5 enrollees in January.
Dyer is trying to get things squared away in order to enroll in Jan as well.

Keep the name Darius Robinson on your radar... Clemson commit, giving AU a very hard look. Had a visit from Thigpen this week.

Personally, if I'm coming from the Noog, I start my drive right after dinner on NYE. Drive through Atlanta, grab a snack in Macon as an excuse to stretch the legs to prevent burnout, stop somewhere for a couple/three hours of shuteye just north or south of Valdosta, depending on how you're feeling (if traveling with a lady ,at one of those cheap, rural best western/motel 6 type places, otherwise Wal-Mart parking lot with the seat laid back- it's safer than a rest area), wake up, get going and pull into Tampa just in time for a bloody mary at someone's tailgate. Stop drinking before the game or during the first quarter, and start heading back north after the game. This time, I'd definitely get a hotel room just south of Macon ($35.99/night!!!!), then get up on the 2nd and have a short trip home and most of the weekend left to recover.

It is nice to see the Auburn fans get some recognition. Fans make a much bigger impact on a program than most realize, and it becomes even more evident during bowl time.

As for the DL, we do really need a couple of recruits there too. We could really use a stand out defensive tackle. We have okay numbers there this season in comparison to the rest of the defense, but we don't have a Sims or Marks this year. We need a game changing player like that.

Jet, I do believe the evil empire wins this one, and a good part of it has to do with how well we played against them. It had to be a wake up call. We were one defensive stop away from devastating the mullet nation.

I think the evil empire will be out to prove something. Their running game isn't as good as last season, but as a whole their offense may be as good or better. Florida's isn't as good as it has been. They will miss Percy Harvin.

Going offtopic, but I found this amusing:

Parnevik, the man who introduced the couple, has since come out saying he owes Nordegren an apology.
“We probably thought he was a better guy than he is,” he told the Golf Channel, referring to his wife and himself. “"I would probably need to apologize to [Elin] and hope she uses a driver next time instead of a 3-iron … It’s a private thing of course, but when you are the guy he is — the world’s best athlete — you should think more before you do stuff ... and maybe not ’just do it,’ like Nike says."

sorry, Norm.

PF, I don't believe in linking. Make the lazy blog readers copy and paste. It ain't difficult!

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

THT,
d'oh!!....well, as least I credited my source. ha.

11:36 AM  
Blogger michael said...

Yeah, the about.com one came up first on the search, but I was like, "about.com, imma let you finish, but snopes.com is the best urban legend debunking website OF ALL TIME!"

Blogger Norm said...

PF - no worries. I happen to have links for that particular story/rumor saved because invariably at least twice a year I have a couple of friends ask me about it. They can't seem to remember that they've already asked about it. That's just the first one I copied for today's purposes.

11:38 AM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

mike,

the problem I have with that mentality, is that many of us HABOTN from our mobile devices. Sometimes, the link doesn't show up completely. Other, it's hard to copy and paste. Linking makes it easier on those people. Plus, it looks better.

...and one can argue that you're the one being lazy by not linking.

Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

absolutely true about the links not always showing up intact. If Michael's smart enough to be King of Eurasia, I'm sure he can master the very simple task of linking. It's a regal sort of thing.

11:42 AM  
Blogger Sean says Go Gators! said...

I always thought Mike was the Queen of Eurasia.

11:42 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

oh wait, I think he's Emperor of Eurasia, he's the queen of HABOTN... and of course, the unrivaled ThighMaster.

11:45 AM  
Blogger michael said...

I have linked before, and I am sure I will link again (like the time just a couple of weeks ago when I linked to a url that contained "sexy_jan_terri" in the address. I just figured that might scare some people off from copying and pasting).

Am I lazy? Perhaps. Or maybe I just want you guys to get more wrinkles in your brains by having to copy and paste stuff. It's the same way I run Eurasia. Like just last month, I removed all toilets from houses that have more than 5 bedrooms just to make sure the rich people still know how to dig a hole and poop in it. These are skills we don't need to lose in this day and age.

Anyway, I got my scarlet M for not linking, and I don't plan on starting to do it regularly any time soon.

THE END!

Michael, Go Conquer a New Territory, Go Gators!

Lame commercial but it works here.

11:47 AM  
Blogger michael said...

MJT, Captain Boxhead, Queen of HABOTN, King of Eurasia, and Thigh Master = michael

11:48 AM  
Blogger Norm said...

Stinky - why should the Eurasian rich have to dig holes when they can just poop in a cooler and then deposit it on their nemesis' doorstep by the dark of night?

11:49 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I don't mind digging the pit, but I won't poop in it. I'll go to the local ESE (Extended Stay Eurasia).

When is the musical coming out that features all those characters, and what will it be called? My first thought was "Lord of the Thighs".

11:55 AM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

Beavers/Ducks or some crappy NFL game tonight?

11:57 AM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Of course, we know whose music will be featured.

11:57 AM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

De facto Pac Ten Championship game definitely warrants a watch tonight.

Should be fairly entertaining and the antithesis to what will happen in Atlanta on Saturday no doubt.

Civil War for the Rose Bowl...I'm there.

Civil War get's my viewership tonight...

That brings up a question.... which team is the South, and which is the Union?

They already made a movie loosely based on all my personas. It was called "Backdraft" and starred Kurt Russell.

12:03 PM

THT,

I have sent you an e-mail but if you still have room, put me down for 3 firm tickets. I hope you still have them. Sounds like fun. It will be me and my 2 sons.

Lunch was ...

Fried chicken, black eye peas (w/ chopped onions), Kentucky Wonder Beans, vinegar slaw and biscuit from the Montgomery Farmer's Market Cafe.

12:20 PM  
Blogger War Eagle Girl said...

THT, we have procured our rooms at MacDill AFB and now working on tickets. I have a request in with scholarship donor now and will let you know if we need any. It's not that I would rather rub elbows with the rich....

Slow day in the Gump, Jet?

12:20 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Three tickets left in the The OFFICIAL HABOTN Section for the Outback Bowl. First come first serve.

We have a total of 20 seats, 10 each on two rows. I theoretically can order up to 4 additional seats if someone needs more than the 3 remaining.

12:20 PM  
Blogger George W. Jet said...

Farmer's Market is a standby. Solid, rarely spectacular.

I'm packing up here. Flying to San Pelosi in the a.m. for 6 days of conference/meetings.

HABOTN time will be limited. I know you'll miss me. I know you'll miss me. I know you'll miss me blind.

12:22 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

WEGirl - not all scholarship donors are rich. Some just choose AU football over food/clothing/etc.

12:23 PM

Jet- You are not up for re-election yet, time to stay private still :).

Blogger E-Bro said...

So I read on Low's blog where PETA wants Georgia to replace Uga with an electronic dog.

Seriously PETA?

12:38 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Maybe Disney can help UGA with that.

So Peta wants the dog that gets to live the best life ever of any bulldog to not be a mascot. Yeah, that sounds about right for Peta.

Looks like I'm making it to the game!

THT, I may take those three, but if someone gives you a firm commitment before I do, go ahead and sell them. Did they come out to $80 each?

12:46 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

Go ahead and rub it in...

I am really liking the looks of this recruiting class. At the end of the summer, I thought it was a bit below average and we would likely get a few good players in and have a class about on par with the past.

Presently it is looking better than most classes this decade, and it most of the players actual make it to campus, this could easily be the best.

12:54 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Scott Choco -that will be about right. I don't have an invoice yet.

12:54 PM

D.Miller - don't worry, I haven't been to a bowl game in Florida since AU was in the Gator Bowl.

Only bowl game I have ever been able to attend was the Music City when we played Wiscy a few years back....

I haven't been to a bowl game in Florida sinse Auburn was in the Tangerine :-(

Oof, bad timing on my post. Happy I'm going, but wish that all Hotties who want to go could make it as well.

1:07 PM  
Blogger AUFan365 said...

THT ... Don't know how many or if you have any left but instead of 4 I would like a total of 6 tickets. If they are all gone please let me know.

WEGirl we will be staying at the FAMCAMP at Macdill there are 3 motorhomes of us ... come if you like ... look for the flags flyin'!
