All we have are the embers

Hey everyone. Our 100-minute Video Campfire® has ended. I'd say it was a success.

We had approximately 500 unique viewers. We averaged 83 viewers at any given moment. I was aiming for 40 viewers total, so I'd say that qualifies as a success.

What we need to do now is make suggestions on how to improve it.

Here are some things we discussed in the Campfire. Add more in the comments section and I'll post 'em here.

*Stop the refresh on the main blog because it messes up the stream.
*Images/video/links can't be posted in the chat.
*(Some) questions gathered before the VC begins.
*"Tape" the segment for later playback (**I have this one solved already.**)

IN OTHER NEWS:
Here's what the Outback Bowl had to say via Twitter -- ``ESPN announced that the Outback Bowl overtime thriller with the Wildcats and Tigers posted a 4.06 national television rating. This is a 32% increase from last year's game. Thanks for watching this instant classic!"

There's probably a prescription available for that, Jet. You could even invent one..."Jetstream".

I saw a message to the effect "Cannot connect to Chat, please try again later". I tried it on my usual browser Chrome as well as IE 8 and had the same issue. But, I was able to watch and listen right along. It was cool.

Norm, that's because you're cooler than the other side of the pillow.

Sooo we can see Jay fake laughing at your jokes, but he can't see you right?

4:27 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Jay, I may have missed this in the live chat, but what is your view on Etheridge? Will he be back?

Loved the video campfire. It shocked me to suddenly have Jay G. staring me in the face on my monitor. Kudos.

As for improving it, getting the list of questions upfront might be good, say in the blog here prior to it starting.

The only negative I see is that it doesn't document your answers for others to review later. Maybe Michael the mad live blog blogger would like to get involved to eleviate that if his paraphrasing is okay with you:)

4:28 PM  
Blogger Coach Jet Lebo said...

OK, guys, Jay G won't be here tonight, so let's a take a bunch of hideous 3s, commit a boatload of stupid fouls, and shoot free throws like that blind cowbell girl from the Boise State band.

I think we can lose another one since HABOTN Dude won't be here. No one will ever know.

4:30 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

You don't suppose Jay was actually able to see us too, do you? I mean it could be a homeland security think and the bush administration had hidden cameras installed in every monitor and they have a special agency that watches people setting at computers and flags anyone wearing a turban as a possible terrorist, or maybe I am paranoid?

4:31 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Michael ... that could work.

I'm not bethrothed to UStream's chat widget.

4:32 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Jet, could you clarify how that is different than when Jay is at the games?

4:33 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

A list of questions gathered ahead of time is a great idea. We'll do that.

Jet ..sadly your BBall coaching philosophy seems familiar on the Plains right now.

4:38 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

The other improvements I can see is how the video chat begins and ends. Maybe have an Auburn logo on the screen first accompanied by that Elvis entrance music.

As for closing, if Ted Roof has the time to drop by and close the show, that would work.

4:39 PM  
Blogger Seanachie said...

I was never able to see the commentary, either on the blog or at Ustream. Kept saying it could connect to the server. The video was fine, though.

4:41 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Etheridge ... my guess is that he won't be back, but that's not based on any facts. That was a bad injury. He's still in the neck brace. I think he's lucky to be OK and, well, I wouldn't feel comfortable "doubling down" after a situation like that.

Maybe he feels differently.

4:41 PM  
Blogger Coach Jet Lebo said...

Lebo or not, can't see ol' Roy taking his team on the road for a non-conference game to a lesser opponent after last night's debacle. So we need to find another potential oppponent to open the arena.

Ol' Roy took the team to Charleston on Saturday for a little R&R, then got their butts kicked last night.

4:41 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

That is what I was thinking with Etheridge, Jay. He has had that neck brace on for a long time. It kind of reminds me of the Protho situation. Some thought he just broke his leg and would be back next season. Some injuries are so easy to fix. I just hope Etheridge does whatever is best for him, but I am assuming we cannot count on him being available.

4:45 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Auburn needs to get creative with it's basketball program. I hear that Monday Night Raw has a guest host every week. How about we just have a guest head coach every week for men's basketball. Sure, there might be a bit of a consistency problem, but none of the coaches would be around long enough to get bashed too terribly bad.

4:47 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Another good idea, SFC.

I say we get real creative and recruit players and win games, but that's just me. I'm nuts

Michael, how do you feel about live blogging Jay's video blogs so we will have documentation of what he said? Are you up for it?

4:59 PM  
Blogger michael said...

I don't know Steve. Jay hasn't even started paying me for all the other live blogging I have been doing. Luckily, Kristina hasn't been around to collect her wages recently, so I am not currently bankrupt or anything.

5:01 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Oh, ITAT said it was terrible?

WOW. Now I know it kicked ass!

I personally would love to see Mark Murphy get on live video and show himself. I'd tape that.

5:01 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Steve, I can "tape" the segments for future playback. MJT could just watch those and ... wouldn't need to blog at all.

5:02 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Yes, you are cutting edge Jay. We didn't throw you any softballs, of course there we no differential equations questions either, so I think it was fair.

That would be awesome, Jay. I hated I had to miss half of the thing, but if I don't work occasionally, they might not pay me.

I wouldn't fight Mark. He's so much older than me. I respect my elders.

I only fight the elderly and females smaller than me. I have to know i can win, and not get punched too hard

5:08 PM

Bear in mind, I said the ITAT Football Forum said it sucked. That's the garden variety Interwebbed fans who are too cheap to pony up for a paid subscription.

Don't know if Murphy had any comment. 'Cause, I'm like, too cheap to pony up for a paid subscription.

Blogger michael said...

Yeah Harrison, that's him. Another goat, Edgar the Goat-De-Legger permanently injured him in his last match. He's only got three legs now. I can take him!

And Jay, I don't think Chester really has any friends. He's a bit of a loner. A loose canon. He wasn't out to make friends.

5:16 PM

Well, if it's any consolation, the guy who started the thread (entitled "Jay G. Tate - OMG") appears to be a subscriber.

I don't think I've ever bought any Bud's Best cookies, but now I know I never will. I just saw a commercial with Bud himself and whole bunch of people standing behind him. He said(and I'm paraphrasing),"I would like to congratulate the Alabama Crimson Tide on their Championship season...On Jan. 7 we will watch Alabama's football team cream the Texas Longhorns and become the National Champions..." Then he and everyone behind him yelled, "RTR!"

I really need to stop watching local news too. Yesterday, on ABC 33/40, Mike Raita and Jeff Speegle were broadcasting from Pasadena. They were like little schoolgirls they were so giddy. They had Finebum on and he was talking about next year's "two-peat."

I know I am still new to this blog so I don't know if I have earned the right to ask about improvements. With that said I'm going to anyways. Would it be possible to set up the blog so that we don't have to refresh any blog? If that can't be done then maybe it could be set up so that each post is numbered for easy reference later. Any thoughts?

You need to give me more.

Describe the problem first. Do you get confused about which blogs are new?

That is a terrible lineup.

The BCS has ruined the bowl season, IMO. Most BCS bowl games blow.

That Orange Bowl lineup would probably be the same with or without the BCS. The conference tie-ins are the same as right before the BCS, aren't they?

Dear Brother ATL ...

In these times, I turn to the Good Book for guidance.

“By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter; choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season.” (Hebrews 11:24-25)

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” (Matthew 7:13-14)

I trust you have your answer.

Is it that the ACC really sucks this year or is the big 10 getting better? I think the first statement.

8:31 PM

With that kind of attitude, if Bama loses on Thursday, I guess the Bama fan base will get another scolding from Saban for not taking the bowl game seriously and having it affect the team.

Did anyone notice on the 1st extra point for Iowa that the GT player was on the ground sliding and hit the planted foot of the kicker? Just as in the Au/NW game the kickers ankle rolled and he fell down, but there wasn't a call. I will forever believe that the refs and the announcers wanted NW to win that game.

As far as the bammer/UT game. You all know very well what the bammers will say on Friday if they lose. "Well at least we were playing for the championship." I almost always root for the SEC but no part of me could ever root for UA. It's not the program that I hate but the fan base. I would say 85% only know bama football because momma and daddy rooted for them. They never went to school there nor can they even spell school.

Yeah, my parity comment was geared towards the UNC-CofC game, not Auburn-West Georgia.

No reason that game should have been single digits in the second half. Conference play is about to start and there will be no more hiding.

Start out with SC at home (winnable) before going to Knoxville (uh-oh) on Wednesday in front of a national television audience on ESPN.

FSJ- I knew after I said that someone would counter. I understand. My mom is an AU fan and never went to college, so you are correct it is not a required. I guess what I ment was most Bama fans I know only know Bama football. They don't know any other football. They also don't care about the university.

Says the guy that didn't go to Bammer.

I used to do the "im going to lose weight for new years" then about week 5 of the new diest the ice cream would screaming my name. Now i just do a pracitcal new years resolution. "doing more home projects"

Acutally Sean..

I have an undergraduate and masters degree from UA.

The point stands though.

9:12 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

I'm not really dieting, I'm just not eating ice cream at 9 pm. But I sure would love some!

"Knuckle-draggin', mouth-breathin', move-their-lips-when-they-read (if they can) Earnhardt-lovin', cousin-humpin' Walmart alumni" is the correct phrase.

that was and will always be a classic FSJ. that is why i love him so. Dude doesnt give a damn

9:13 PM  
Blogger Sir Sean said...

J/k, FSJ, if that were the case then my wife couldn't be an AU fan and she's just as big, if not bigger into it than me. She's a first class Bammer hater. I'm so proud.

9:13 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

I also do a practical New Years Resolution.

Hate Bama every day more than the previous day.

Works for me.

9:13 PM  
Blogger Sir Sean said...

So that explains why you're tolerable. ;)

Blogger FSJ said...

I'd love to see O'Reilly and Olbermann debate....or in a steel cage death match....Either one...

9:14 PM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

CH=B ...it's the huge % of Bama fans that are inbred: Thus CH=B!!!

9:14 PM  
Blogger atlantatiger said...

E......Good resolution. Keep that up.

9:14 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

LOL...maybe so Sean.

Olberman's only game is cynicism. O' Reilly would smoke him with actual facts/logic.

I voted for Obama.

Just sayin'.

No politics please

9:17 PM  
Blogger Sir Sean said...

Yeah sorry folks, I forgot the "no politics" rules.

I'm glad you exercised your right to vote, E-bro.

Cna CPJ adjust to handle that big cornpone DL?

Jon Stewart's where I get my news.

That and bbc.co.uk.

Blogger atlantatiger said...

2nd half action. Does GT win the 2nd half?

9:18 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

No politics? No problem.

I will now cease with such talk.

9:18 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Stewart's dismantling of Jim Cramer was priceless too.

9:19 PM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

Sorry, I wasn't meaning to do politics, I was contrasting the 2 styles ...well mostly.

Paul Johnson was pisssed at half. I heard him on the radio and he is not a happy camper

9:19 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Here's a campaign slogan we can all (bar FSJ and Mark) get behind:

Hook 'em Horns!!

9:19 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Johnson shouldn't be happy..They only had about 30 yards offense.

9:20 PM  
Blogger atlantatiger said...

Hoopie your observations are correct.

9:20 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Booooooooooooo!

9:20 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

FSJ...yes it was. Was amazed at how Kramer just bent over and took it.

9:20 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

GT looking a little better.

9:21 PM  
Blogger atlantatiger said...

Looks like johnson probably lit into them at half. Good offense now. I still say the ACC stinks

9:22 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

I'm convinced I can pick stocks as well as Cramer...

His track record is terrible.

9:22 PM  
Blogger Sir Sean said...

Let's flip this thing.

9:23 PM  
Blogger Sir Sean said...

Really quickly.
