Former Auburn standout makes good

Hey everyone. A wild Wild Card game between Green Bay and Arizona ended with a former Auburn star hogging the spotlight.

Linebacker Karlos Dansby, who played on the Plains from 2000-03, recovered a fumble in overtime and returned it for the winning touchdown.

In a game with 96 points scored, of course it's a defensive play that wins it.

FSJ-I'm hearing Smart has taken the deal with UGA tonight. Have you heard more than just him talking to UGA?
I saw where Saban interviewed the DL coach for the Cowboys as a shot across the bow earlier today.

wtc,
I wish I had your connections. I'm just glad I am connected to you.

From the footballcoachscoop.com:

FootballCoachScoop has BREAKING NEWS and the FIRST TO REPORT that Alabama Defensive Coordinator Kirby Smart has been hired as the new
Defensive Coordinator by Head Coach Mark Richt.

8:11 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

After I heard the news earlier. I remembered tocheck on that site Jay posted a few weeks ago and there it was.

That is correct PF.

No, I was just bouncing around other places ... Saban doesn't take certain ideas well, does he?

Blogger Dav4AU said...

Cincy, how can I get address of the student condo?

8:43 PM  
Blogger Dav4AU said...

Tubs salary 7.5 to 10 m for 5 years. Seems low to me

8:45 PM  
Blogger Jet Wants a Brain said...

Tubs' status an unemployed doesn't command him the big bucks. He's a bargain hire.

8:46 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

wtc,

From what I hear you are correct. Rumor is that he is getting the infamous coach in waiting deal at UGA.

8:47 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

anyone got the tail number of the UGA planes? Supposedly just landed in Athens from Tuscaloosa, where it spent the day.

8:48 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

Hi Dav4AU,
Student condo is in Glenn Oaks Condominiums, 535 West Glenn Avenue. Unit 213. You can get my email address off of my profile. If you send me your email I can send you some details if you want them.

8:53 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Can I retract my last statement, wtc,

The Tiderinsider version of wtc just posted that according to fellow UA coaches Smart is NOT going to UGA.

I guess we will see. I did hear that Smart was pushing for a coach in waiting deal. Maybe UGA balked at that?

8:54 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Rivals is apparently reporting it's a done deal...titterpeeps are saying coach in waiting was part of deal...hmmm. guess we'll find out in the morning

8:58 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

if only we could have a someone at PDK (or AHN) to see if he's getting off the plane right now...isn't going to affect Bama much, I fear, but will be a huge plus for UGA. Probably best for Auburn if he stays put.

9:02 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

I agree PF...

Won't affect UA much either way. I think everybody knows Saban runs the defense.

9:03 PM  
Blogger Jet Wants a Brain said...

OK, how can he be such a help at UGA if he's &$#% on a boar hog in Tuscaloosa?

Am I missing something?

9:09 PM  
Blogger jhag said...

Smart wants to run his own defense so he might take the offer

Also, David Pollock apparently Tweeting it's a done deal.

He will definitely improved Georgia's D.

9:11 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Jet, huh?

9:12 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Man, Smart to Georgia would be a real kick in the Sabans.

9:13 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

FSJ - I get to work some of your offshore type hours soon. I get to host a call for an implementation. The call starts at 11:45p eastern and is scheduled to go to 6:00a.

9:14 PM  
Blogger CH=B=claim13=WalMartian said...

I'm sure the walmartians and their fearless leader will spin this. Oh wait it's already started. "Won't affect UA much either way. I think everybody knows Saban runs the defense".

9:15 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

If Satan runs the defense, what was Smart doing?

9:15 PM  
Blogger IV said...

You know a walmartian when you hear one.

9:16 PM  
Blogger CH=B=claim13=WalMartian said...

We should probably blame it on the walmartians themselves. I mean if they showed more passion then Smart wouldn't want to go anywhere.

9:16 PM  
Blogger jhag said...

Everyone knows Saban runs Alabamas defense...

9:16 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Smart was, you know, hanging out and stuff.

9:17 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Wasn't Smart an UGA grad? Is it just a case of momma calling him home?

9:17 PM  
Blogger CH=B=claim13=WalMartian said...

Oh wait that was already used!!!

9:17 PM  
Blogger IV said...

Since the walmartians were to blame for last years loss to Utah in the Sugar Bowl, do they get credit for the win in the MNC game?

9:18 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Smart went to HS in Georgia and was a UGA grad, yes.

9:18 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

IV, that is a very good question. I am sure Saban will be just as quick to give them credit for the win.

9:18 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

What is Dubose doing? He was a DC. He might have his will coordinate for food sign out.

9:19 PM  
Blogger IV said...

Yeah, right.

9:20 PM  
Blogger CH=B=claim13=WalMartian said...

FSJ, all kidding aside. Do you watch extreme home makeover? It was a great episode tonight. I don't know much about your daughter, but I did read a few comments eariler. The girl on the show tonight has a condition that I think could be similar to your daughter's.

9:20 PM  
Blogger CH=B=claim13=WalMartian said...

I could be completely wrong and missed something in previous posts.

9:21 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Dubose is apparently the defensive line coach at Memphis now. Go figure.

9:21 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

CH=B...I didn't watch it because I was at.....wait for it.....Wal-Mart!

I'll try to see if I can find out about the episode. Thanks!

9:22 PM  
Blogger IV said...

The walmartians will spin that Smart wasn't any good. If he was, he wouldn't want to leave Coach Saban and all of the University of Alabama tradition. You know, no one but Bama has tradition.

9:22 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Bwahahaha, thanks FSJ. You made my night. You didn't happen to pick up a Nick Saban bobble head while you were there?

9:23 PM  
Blogger IV said...

Two of them I'll bet.

9:24 PM  
Blogger CH=B=claim13=WalMartian said...

I'm sure you could watch it on abc.com.

9:24 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Bama will be Bama. Rather than be concerned about them, I prefer to just enjoy the precious moments, such as the Walmart photo earlier.

9:24 PM

You know, one for the dash, one for the rear deck.

9:24 PM  
Blogger CH=B=claim13=WalMartian said...

Now back to the jokes. where you really at your national headquarters? That is too funny.

Blogger IV said...

Don't you mean the Mother Church?

9:25 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Okay, okay, I must admit I go to Walmart sometimes too. Of course, I don't tend to think of it as a location to create a shrine to Auburn, but maybe it is just me.

9:26 PM  
Blogger IV said...

I'm a K Mart kind of guy. Sometimes Target.

9:27 PM  
Blogger CH=B=claim13=WalMartian said...

Steve, I was there today also. However.....well I won't say anymore.

9:27 PM  
Blogger CH=B=claim13=WalMartian said...

I wonder why the dollar general turned down the chance to have 6k+ walmartians come in at one time. That's like 6k they could have made.

9:29 PM  
Blogger CH=B=claim13=WalMartian said...

Talk to you guys tomorrow from work. Take it easy on the walmartians while I'm gone.

9:30 PM  
Blogger IV said...

Dollar General can't compete with the Mother Church.

9:30 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

I actually was at Wal-Mart.

The shame is etched on my face.

9:31 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

IV, actually K-Mart can be great at times. It is usually far less crowded. At times I use it during Christmas shopping season.

9:36 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Hey, I got an idea. Bama has never found a logo to go on the sides of their helmets. How about that new Walmart logo? It would be sweet.

9:37 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

only good thing about K Mart is Craftsman Tools...still don't trust that they're not selling seconds that didn't pass QC for Sears, but there are some things that wouldn't be a big deal if that's the case that I've picked up there...

9:39 PM  
Blogger IV said...

Yea, but how would the players find their helmets without the numbers on them?

9:40 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

IV, you do have a point.

So let me get this straight. Auburn's next b-ball game (men's) is at Thompson Boling on Thursday (on ESPN no less) against Tennessee, a team that just beat #1 ranked Kansas today?

Um...uh-oh.

Yep, i'm still here IV. How's it going?

1:17 AM  
Blogger IV said...

A story for THT when he gets up and feels like doing some catchin' up on HABOTN. Terry Beasley's first wife was a young lady here in Prattville. Terry lived here for a spell after his brief pro career with the SF 49ers. He had a landscaping business and did well with it until his marriage hit the rocks. I pass the house that they lived in on some of my walks. The last I heard anything about Terry, was about a year ago. He was not in good health, suffering from some kind of muscle disorder. I understand that he has problems using his arms and legs. What a tragedy for some one that was so athletic at one time. He no longer lives in Prattville and has been gone for some time now. I understood he was living up on Lake Martin somewhere. I can still see that bright red hair of his when he took off his helmet after catching a Sully pass for a TD. Great WR, great Auburn man, the Beas, #88.

Good morning, Hotties! What a great heads up play by Dansby last evening!

I'm sure this has already been discussed, but did anyone read where Tubs said he loved recruiting? If so, what did you think about that?

7:13 AM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

I overnight feels like was 14 here... that is not why I live in FL.

I had a race yesterday, which means I spent the entire day outside and a couple hours getting wet and therefore freezing... not happiness.

7:13 AM

Could someone post a link to the article in the AJC that you guys were talking about yesterday...

7:25 AM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

Luv ...Tubs, by his own admission, is a salesman. Whether true or not, he has to say that he likes it. He probably does like recruiting, just in the old school manner. Mark Richt and Tubs have recruited in the same style for years. Even though his old style will work well in west Texas, I'm betting that Tubs chsnges his style.

I responded to you question b/c I didn't want you to feel ignored, but he's totally gone now and I'm gonna try even harder to not discuss him.

Glad that Karlos made a great play, but really wanted Green Bay to win. Green Bay is one of my favorite teams if I really had one in the NFL. All the teams I wanted to win loss except for the Jets. I really wanted to see a Jets / Indy matchup this week in which the Jets would knock them off. That would be sweet irony for Indy throwing the perfect season and keeping the Jets alive. Of course, it could still happen, but the Chargers will be tough to beat this week for the Jets. Damn you Tom Brady for sucking.

i would love to see my boy Marcus McNeill & San Diego take on Dansby and the Cards in the Super Bowl. if Arizona doesn't get there then i hope it's Ratliff & the Cowboys.

8:03 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

I hate the Patriots and the Ravens, so I was glad one of them had to lose. Hopefully the other will lose this weekend as well as the Cowboys.

If the Steelers or Titans can't win it, then the teams I hate shouldn't be able to either.

8:05 AM  
Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

Hoopie, thanks for responding. I don't care to talk about anymore either, I just wondered what the Hotties thought about that since he didn't seem too interested in recruiting while he was at Auburn. OK. I'm done talking about him.

8:05 AM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

New thread UPZ.

8:07 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Luv,

I agree with Hoopie, Tubs openly admits to being a car salesman, so he's going to say whatever he needs to get what he wants.

I don't think Tubs hates recruiting, he just does it in a way that time might have passed by.

Also, I don't see why we can't discuss coaches past and present when the topic comes up. (Go ahead throw the penalty flag my way.)
