Auburn engineers upset in Baton Rouge

Hey everyone. Just a short note ...

The Auburn women have beaten No. 11 LSU at the Maravich Assembly Center. It was the best game I've seen this season.

Alli Smalley hit a 23-foot shot with :03 remaining to force overtime. The Tigers moved ahead with approximately 1:30 remaining in overtime on a shot by Jordan Greenleaf. LSU went scoreless during its final four possessions -- including a botched, open layup at the buzzer.

Auburn (10-6) was led by point guard Morgan Toles and center KeKe Carrier, who finished with 17 points apiece.

It's the team's first SEC win in three tries. The Tigers lost at Florida in double overtime Thursday.

War Eagle!!

Blogger SteveFC said...

I ran across an article on the war eagle reader that quoted Tuberville before the 2008 season as saying Lubbock looked like the surface of the moon.

Out of curiosity I did a virtual drive around Lubbock. The surface of the moon is a little harsh, but it definitely isn't the loveliest village on the plains. There seems to be a dirt theme. Trees are small. Everything is flat. I don't think Tubbock will be in my vacation plans.

Kathy...I posted this comment in the last thread in response to your link. If you'll allow me:

All due respect to James Willis's title of associate head coach, but wasn't his move to Bama more or less a lateral one?

Coach Saban...just...stop talking.

4:12 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

I agree E-Bro.

This game is a good sign for ladie's basketball. Sure, you are going to occasionally have a down year, but they will be back.

4:13 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

They'll be back soon.

4:14 PM  
Blogger Jet Wants a Brain said...

But will Ashley Judd be back soon?

4:16 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Hahaha, I just read where Tuberville promised a little more running at Texas Tech. Define a litte? Maybe 30 to 40 carries a game? This will be interesting.

Jay,
You never said if you were up for a little indoor soccer?

4:19 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

JayG-From your previous thread.

I don't think UA winning makes Chizik's job harder. I don't think it makes it easier either. It is a win and AU will have to work hard anyway. But a bigger question would a UA fan even care? I heard the got bye week from the NFL this weekend anyway and will play the cowboys next week.

SO UGA has now offered K Smart $700k per for 3 years to come to UGA as the DC. Wow.

4:25 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Sound like a lateral move to you?

4:27 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

$700k could make me forget I was on or near a septic tank.

4:29 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

I wish someone would offer me a lateral job at that salary.

Wait a minute, does that mean a lateral move as someone else's wife? Nevermind...

4:29 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

I guess it depends on whether he is leaving your program or coming to your program, doesn't it?

4:29 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Anyone that takes until 2010 to figure out who Ashley Judd is had zero credibility in any area.

4:30 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

Just heard that Saban told Smart he could not talk to the media until Sabn told him he could.

4:31 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

What if Smart talks to the media to tell them he's going to Georgia? Does Saban suspend him at that point?

The evil empire winning can benefit Auburn. If the 2004 team had faced an undefeated evil empire in the Iron Bowl, they would have likely been in the BSCG.

4:34 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

He has to get his permission PF.

4:35 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

I'm out for awhile. Wish I had gotten up to go run today. Maybe Monday.

4:36 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

PF, I don't know most of the music groups these days. I saw the other day where Bounce had a number 1 hit. I have never heard of Bounce, but it is by choice.

4:36 PM  
Blogger IV said...

Anybody told Steve yet that Ashley is an actress not a singer?

4:39 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Nothing you can say can justify that. She's a cultural icon, rabid sports fan, and most importantly, hot.

4:39 PM  
Blogger IV said...

Steve, How's the weather in Belize?

4:40 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Ashley, not Bounce (sic).

4:40 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

About 73 degrees and clear at the moment.

By they way, in honor of Omnica everyone should watch the Big Love season premiere tonight at 8:00 AuST on HBO.

4:41 PM  
Blogger IV said...

Steve, I bet you know who Tony Franklin is though.

4:42 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

You have an incredible grasp of the obvious, IV.

4:43 PM  
Blogger Fearless.True said...

really a great game, alli's shot was clutch; That was a heartbreaker at UF thursday night and this gives them faith they can win in the SEC, now they can continue the streak against bama wednesday night!

4:43 PM  
Blogger IV said...

I sure wished I could say the same for you.

4:44 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Thanks for you concern, but I really would prefer that you wouldn't say anything for me.

4:46 PM  
Blogger IV said...

What can be said for you. Your turn PF.

4:47 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

I will not be watching Big Love nor Chuck tonight. Not sure what I'll watch but I can absolutely, positively guarantee you it will be neither of those selections. Though Chuck does have some easy on the eyes ladies from what I've seen on the commercials.

4:47 PM  
Blogger CH=B=claim13=WalMartian said...

Why would anyone want to work for a man who tells you when/who you can talk to? $aban is a joke. He might be a good coach, but he a terrible person in my book.

4:48 PM  
Blogger CH=B=claim13=WalMartian said...

So did everyone like the final episode of "Auburn Everyday"?

4:48 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Chuck DOES have a number of eye catching women.

But it's also a good, fun show.

4:49 PM  
Blogger IV said...

Money will make you do it until you get tired of such treatment. Walmartian creater

4:49 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Coaches asking assistants not to speak to the press isn't unusual, although Saban seems to take it to another level.

4:50 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Who is Ashley Judd?

4:51 PM  
Blogger IV said...

or creator.

4:51 PM  
Blogger IV said...

Ask Steve, Michael. I think she is a singer though.

4:52 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

I want to be 21 again.

4:52 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

Where is Kristina? We need her to tell us if Michael is kidding.

4:52 PM  
Blogger IV said...

She sings in a trio all by herself and a couple of goats.

4:52 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

Not me, PF. 50 is too much fun!

4:53 PM  
Blogger IV said...

Yeah, where is Kristina. Its been a while.

4:53 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Most Coaches, when telling their assistants not to talk to the media, don't leak it to the media that they said such.

4:53 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

Seriously, where is Kristina? She hasn't been around since Christmas or before. Or I have missed her if she has.

4:53 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

I actually don't think I could survive 21 again, but I'd like to try.

4:54 PM  
Blogger CH=B=claim13=WalMartian said...

If you ask a walmartian to take you to their evil leader where do you think you will end up?

4:54 PM  
Blogger IV said...

Cincy, I like 70 much better.
as long as I am still breathing.

4:54 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

PF, that is a good point. Saban does seem to have some control freak in him.

4:54 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Kristina ia alive and well somewhere in Alabama. I saw her commenting on Facebook.

4:54 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I like Chuck. It's pretty mindless, fun entertainment. The agent who keeps a framed photo of Ronald Reagan in his apt is great. That would be Col. John Casey, played by Adam Baldwin.

4:56 PM  
Blogger IV said...

Michael, Did you fire Kristina?

4:56 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

ditto

4:56 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

CH=B, loved the final episode of Auburn Everyday and I hope they continue doing the Auburn Preview using this format.

4:57 PM  
Blogger IV said...

I wonder if we could get KeKe to play with the men's BB team? She might be a beast with them, then again she might hurt some of them in practice.

4:58 PM  
Blogger CH=B=claim13=WalMartian said...

Can anyone reacall a coach leaving Saban for a step up? Also Smart went to UGA, but that would matter since Saban doesn't have any kind of loyalty to anyone or place.

4:58 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

*ditto was for PF.

I have nothing against Chuck, I have seen an episode or two, it just didn't make it into my rotation. Since there's no football, we'll probably watch something recorded after F4* goes to bed.

4:58 PM  
Blogger CH=B=claim13=WalMartian said...

Kathy, how bout the comments from Chizik and some of the players at the end. Doesn't that just make you feel awsome inside? I like how he is running this program. I truely believe he loves Auburn and wants the players to love Auburn as well. How could the players not even know the fight song until chizik made them. What was the previous staff doing?

5:00 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

I think we are going to rewatch the AU-NW game. The two hour version.

5:00 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

THT...exactly. It's not the show with the most depth, but it's a lot of fun and it's a got little bit of everything: drama, comedy, and action. Then there is Yvonne StraHOTvski.

I dig it. I'll be watching tonight.

5:00 PM  
Blogger CH=B=claim13=WalMartian said...

or awesome!

Chuck is a great show. The woman on the show make Judd chick not look so good.

5:02 PM

Me too THT.

5:02 PM  
Blogger IV said...

You mean the singer Ashley Judd?

5:03 PM  
Blogger michael said...

I didn't fire Kristina. She might have quit. I don't know.

Anyone know if she went to Disney World before Christmas? I saw an Auburn fan that may or may not have been her... not sure though.

5:03 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

Ashley Judd? Who's he?

5:03 PM  
Blogger War Eagle Girl said...

Just had to change my picture back to Ali! She saved that game for overtime and then the other stepped up! What an exciting game...now can we get the guys to get on board?!

5:04 PM  
Blogger Andrew said...

E-Bro said...

Coach Saban...just..stop..talking


==I couldn't agree more..What incredibly stupid quotes those were in that AJC article. Great coach..but what a horrid little man..

5:04 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Yeah, players being a less than familiar with the fight song in recent years is disappointing, but I'm not gonna get upset to the previous coaching staff about it.

I'm not sure Lac or Ronnie Brown could sing the fight song right now if you asked them to. That doesn't devastate me.

But hey, I do like that Chizik is going to do a better job witht hat. More importantly, it seems like he's going to do an even better job of recruiting.

5:04 PM  
Blogger IV said...

She works for you Michael. You should know if she had vacation leave for Disney.

5:04 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Kristina was at Disney before xmas, yes...according to Facebook.

5:06 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

When he's finished with the fight song, he should move on to the Alma Mater.

5:09 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

PF,
If you see Kristina on FB, would you tell her we miss her? The girls are a little outnumbered on here. Plus I need her to tell me if Michael is kidding.

5:09 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I have messaged with Kristina on Facebook. She's ensconced with non-HABOTN activities at the moment, that's all.

5:10 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

CH=B, they will definitely be Auburn Men when they leave! Every show makes me proud of our Auburn coaches and players. This was a special season. JJ made the right hire.

Cincy, I also have the 2-hr version of the game. I've watched it a few times. It will have to get me through the long winter.

5:10 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I have finished my Auburn column for Monday's edition ... just in time for me to attend the 5:30 mass.

See ya, peeps.

5:10 PM

i think he should start with the Alma Mater. It almost makes me cry every time I sing it. MrsTHT and I love us some Auburn.

Yummy! Sweet potato french fries with supper.

5:11 PM

I don't know the Alma Mater.

Not all of it, anyway.

bro - I read that message from THT as more of a command to you rather than a wish. But, I get your point.

5:15 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

IV...already know that part, minus the API part.

5:16 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

I love the Auburn Creed. I could recite it when my daughter was at Auburn (she made me learn it) but it is a little rusty. I need to brush up on it.

5:17 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

THE ALMA MATER

On the rolling plains of Dixie
'Neath its sun-kissed sky,
Proudly stands, our Alma Mater
Banners high.

To thy name we'll sing thy praise,
From hearts that love so true,
And pledge to thee our
Loyalty the ages through.

We hail thee, Auburn, and we vow
To work for thy just fame,
And hold in memory as we do now
Thy cherished name.

Hear thy student voices swelling,
Echoes strong and clear,
Adding laurels to thy fame
Enshrined so dear.

From thy hallowed halls we'll part,
And bid thee sad adieu;
Thy sacred trust we'll bear with us
The ages through.

We hail thee, Auburn, and we vow
To work for thy just fame,
And hold in memory as we do now
Thy cherished name.

the alma mater and the creed are both awesome, the auburn band learns the alma mater at preseason camp as freshmen so i've known it since before the first day of classes!

5:23 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

We really should know the alma mater and the creed as well as we know the fight song. Otherwise we are just like the walmartians.

5:23 PM

I don't know the Alma Mater by heart, but I'm nothing like the walmartians.

I assure you.

I believe in Auburn and love it.

5:26 PM

I do like the Auburn Creed. I do like to think that Auburn people hold themselves to a higher standard.

5:26 PM

Thanks Cincy... I always sing it with the band! That's what separates us from the sidewalk alum. Auburn Men..gotta love it!

5:29 PM  
Blogger digger4au said...

Indeed IV and it just doesn't sound right without the API. Althought I understand why it was dropped.
IT just don't sound right!

5:32 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Furthermore, I think it's safe to assume that there are no walmartian types on the HABOTN (that includes FSJ and Mark). It's what makes this place great.

That Eddie character is kind of a tool, though.

5:34 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

I know E-Bro, I don't know it fluently. But I wager you know more of it than most walmartians know of their alma mater - or even what an alma mater is!
