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.

AUFan - I'll call Bowl as soon as I can get away this afternoon. I ordered 20 with 14 committed at the time. I'm allowed 24, so I'll find out later today if they can modify my order. Of course, if all else fails, you and choco can always compete for them over a game of cornhole.

THT,

I have responded to your e-mail. I am interested to know if you, or anyone for that matter, has an insight on lodging in the Tampa area. I am not looking for the Chez Paree nor the Motel 6, but something in between like maybe the Hampton Inn or slightly above. I have never been to Tampa; therefore, I don't have a clue. I will need at least 2 rooms, since I will have my two care givers with me (the home wouldn't let me out without them) so I need a little help.

I will say this one time. If you don't want to play in Shreveport, win more games.

Auburn started 5-0. Finished 7-5. The second half games don't count more than the first. We beat quality teams as did UGA and others. When you finish 7-5...you get what you get. We lucked out.

I am not saying this as an Auburn fan and I am trying to be as objective as possible but today as I sit here and listen to the Paul Slimebaum Radio Network I have come to the realization that the Alabama Fans are about as red as they come. Have you ever sat down and just listened to them? It is seriously comical.

I won't say I never listen, but I try to avoid it. It's tough to do now that they've got him on both FM and AM here in Bammerham in the afternoon/evening. They really need to put something else on the AM sports station in that time slot, even if it's a national show.

It has been many years since we had Harrell male bonding. No. 1 son lives here in Prattvegas and no. 2 lives in Hotlanta. So, no. 1 and I are going to leave early 12/31 and go to retrieve no. 2 in Jawja then head to Tampa, hopping to get there at some reasonable time Thursday night. Staying over Friday night, then will back step to Hotlanta and then home on 1/2/2010.

HABOTNVILLE CITY LIMITS (during the Outback Bowl) are bounded on the South by Seats 1 in Rows PRS, on the East by Row S, on the North by Seats 10 in Rows PR, and Seat 4 in Row S, and on the West by Row P.
In non-surveyor talk... we have
Row P, Seats 1-10
Row R, Seats 1-10
Row S, Seats 1-4
(there is no Row Q)

HABOTNVILLE City Council also just annexed into HABOTNVILLE a small parcel of land in the Raymond James Stadium Press Box, where will reside the HABOTNVILLE Power Plant, one Jay G Tate.

Roy's is pretty decent. I've been to three of them now, and have never left upset (I'm a bit of a food snob, so I frequently leave restaurants upset).

The best was the media/friends & family night when the Atlanta store opened. Besides the fact that it was free and the I've not done five courses with wine pairings at another of their locations, the food came out as good as I've ever imagined the whole Hawaiian Fusion thing could be.

Since MrsTHT won't be going, I've also booked the Extended Stay. Neither THTjr or I remember anything about it from our previous stay there. We assume that is a good thing.

Jay,

What's the scoop on Rollison?

Based on CGC's past explanation of things, I suspect "he's suspended for violation of team rules" is about all you'll get.

I'm ticketed on the Rollison Express. Does this mean I should rebook?

So Rollison suspended and we got in trouble.

Been a full non football day.

They care because they are scared and know we are on the fast track to being back. It's not going to take us 10+ years and 57.5 coaches.....the .5 is for Price since he never actually coached.

M=B they do seem a bit nervous and grasping for straws. I don't go there much any more the SOS gets on my nerves.

Not sure if any of you have seen this... I was hesitant to share, but it seems as though it has gotten pretty widespread.
It is a letter/article written by Terry Lathan to Ed Dyas and a few others who were unable to attend the Iron Bowl.
Enjoy!

It was a low key day. Alabama was suppose to dismantle Auburn. Their Heisman candidate had a national stage to take center spotlight. But something unexpected happened.

Our tailgate was a fun morning. We hosted many Bama friends who came by. The food was fabulous, the music was toe tapping, and the weather was perfect.

We went to our traditional "Tiger Walk" and cheered the team and coaches into the stadium- like gladiators into their arena knowing a hungry undefeated opponent was on the other side pacing and suiting up for a David and Goliath moment. But something unexpected happened.

The sea of orange filled the sun kissed stadium. Every seat was filled. Our Eagle,Tiger, flew around the tops of our heads and landed midfield The teams entered to thunderous applause, fanfare and frenzied fans. Bama fans wore stickers that said " Fear the shutout". But something unexpected happened.

Auburn, fueled by the fans and faith of spirit with hard work, threw everything they had at Alabama. And for 56 minutes Auburn prevailed. The score, the stats, the noise, the pride- For 56 minutes we owned it. But something unexpected happened.

Alabama put together a successful last minute drive and scored the go ahead points. The TV announcers loved the battle for ratings. No one in the stadium moved. But something unexpected happened.

The Alabama fans stayed and "Sabaned" their victory. Their band played. Their victory ended a perfect scheduled season. But something unexpected happened.

What possibly could be wrong?The Bama fans had suffered, sweated, cursed, paced and prayed for 56 torturous minutes and their team finally pulled it out and won. But what they saw next was not suppose to happen...either.

The Auburn family stayed. They were suppose to flee in defeat but alas the opposite happened. We stayed in our seats and waited for our team to walk off the field. 80,000 family members escorted them off with thunderous applause and chants of "It's great to be an Auburn Tiger". The recruits stayed and watched this family of ours lift up our team who served up a whole humble pie to #2 Bama.

It reminded me of the scene in "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" when the Who's in Whoville gathered after their presents and decorations were missing but lifted their voices loudly anyway to share their gratitude and celebrations. For us it was about thankfulness, honor, and family. For 56 minutes we were fans, but as our team walked off the field for a few minutes we were all one family. It was a great feeling and we had not even won the game...on the scoreboard. I will never forget that moment.

We walked out of the stadium chanting AU cheers down the ramps. Alabama fans were quiet and shocked. Their Heisman candidate was disposed of. Their defense was embarrassed. Their haughtiness was silent.

I have not mentioned the crudeness and ugliness that I witnessed or was a part of from Alabama fans during the game. Their reputation for being rude fans lived on-not pulling for their team and being good fans but being jerks to others- even to children. However after the game they were silent. Eerily quiet. One would have thought they lost the game. The lack of the cries of "Roll Tide" was noticeably absent.

But something happened. Auburn continued to make us proud, played their hearts out, made idiots out of the sports announcers who proclaimed earlier this was a waste to play, and silenced the visiting fans.

Yes, something happened. Auburn won everything but the scoreboard. This was not suppose to happen!!! Alabama was not suppose to allow this!! It was just Auburn for goodness sakes, right?? Wrong.

Not a perfect day but an AUsome day. And with already picking up some of the top recruits in the nation (#8 class in the nation), a new coaching staff that have eyes of the tiger, and an AU family ready to support them all, we only have one question- when does the 2010 season start?

War Eagle!

The Toomers Corner event as a "game day simulation" seems rather bogus to me. I recall almost anything was an excuse to roll Toomers, including such things as the end of finals or even just a good Saturday night.
