HoF adjustments


Hey everyone. It's a new year, so it's time for us to revisit our list of the most esteemed HOTTIES.

It's a little something we like to call the Ring of Fire.

We won't be voting on the true RoF for a little bit, but I am licensed as Chief Bloggist to make adjustments to the Feeling The Heat and Notable Newcomers section as I see fit.

So here we go.

PROMOTED FROM NOTABLE NEWCOMERS TO F.T.H.
  • Scott Chocolate
  • Aeronaut
  • coosa
  • chip chip
  • FearlessFreep
  • wes
  • Loganville Tiger
  • IV
  • E-Bro (name changed to reflect current handle)
  • Ephemeral

ADDED TO FEELING THE HEAT
  • wakeriderof87

ADDED TO NOTABLE NEWCOMERS
  • dan dan the AU fan
  • AUFan365
  • bellefay1
  • API
  • Jay 'W. not Tate'
  • missinit
  • MLF
  • Comm'r of Flesh Wounds
  • Stupup74
  • Cousin Humpers = Bammers (aka CH=B)
  • 61northak

  • james in b'ham
  • Matt
  • chris_in_inverness
  • Jim in Scranton
  • Hornet (he's a seasonal poster)


**I don't like removing people from the Ring of Fire, and will not do it for anyone in the inaugural class, but situations occasionally arise that require me to make these difficult decisions.

Boy, the class of 2009 RoF is starting to look like some of Tubs' later recruiting classes. Attrition is hitting us.

Yeah. Gotta keep it clean.

Blogger Aeronaut said...

Weeeee !!!

Nothing like feeling some heat in this cold weather. Merci beaucoup. I'll remember the status the next time I'm freezing my tuckus off camping in the field.

I have come to terms with them winning the NC. It does not affect me. I thoroughly enjoyed Auburn's season and I love watching Auburn Football. Whatever happens on that side does not affect the quality of my life.

3:20 PM

Amen Aero.

were any of those removed redshirt sophomores?

3:22 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

I am happy to be feeling the heat, it is warmer than being notable.

I am also happy I have very few bammer friends.

Great point Aero - I don't let it effect me like I used to, but it still effects me to a degree.

My mouse has the heebie jeebies again. Must be this cold weather. Mice don't like cold weather. Neither do goats or puppets.

Thanks for the addition and recognition JG !!!

Blogger Jimmy said...

The sports radio here in LA say that Carroll to Seattle is a done deal, USC response to the rumor was,
"Talk to the Seahawks"

wonder if this helps Auburn recruit Ronald Powell?

3:23 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

Carmela doesn't rate Notable Newcomer? Wait, I believe think I know the answer to that question. Or at least part of the Carmela equation.

3:28 PM

sometimes you've got to make the tough decisions JG. keep up the peerless work.

3:30 PM

I am betting Carmela made Norm's NN list.

Wow, I'm astounded! I felt certain earlier today I would be tossed into the abyss, and instead I get a promotion. The HABOTN a truly great place. I accept my promotion with the utmost of humility, and promise to continue to fight for truth, justice, and the Auburn way.

Alan, don't give up hope. It took me over a year to make NN status, and now look at me - in the honored group of Feeling the Heat! I realize I'm not Ring of Fire material yet, but maybe someday if I work hard, who knows? Anything is possible for an Auburn man. ;)

Real substance coming on my next post.

3:33 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Did we decide who Carmela was?

Congrats to all that have been promoted and to those that have been added!!

Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Alright! I knew my office was feeling warmer than usual. That may be bad for making chocolate on Monday, but good for taking the sting out of UAT's MNC today.

3:35 PM  
Blogger War Eagle Girl said...

Wow....didn't know I could be removed from the HABOTN......guess I better get to participating more! Or does living in the Gump and buying the Advertiser give me some immunity?!!

3:36 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Just read that link from last thread about the Coach's Trophy and fell on the floor laughing. I've never seen anything more appropriate in my life.

3:37 PM  
Blogger IV said...

I have an idea and it ain't some good looking chick. But me thinks Carmela knows Norm very well, say like maybe a so called buddy.

3:37 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Carmela was actually me all along.

3:38 PM  
Blogger AU1N04 said...

WEG - Oh yes, you can be removed. It is amazing the power of the JGT!

3:38 PM  
Blogger AU1N04 said...

I thought she was a puppet, in 20 minutes?

3:39 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Anybody think we break UAT's 98 meet gymnastics winning streak tonight? To give you an idea of how long a streak that is, my aunt was on the last AU team to beat them, and she will be 51 this year.

3:41 PM  
Blogger AU1N04 said...

Doesn't sound too good then does it Scott?

3:42 PM  
Blogger Aeronaut said...

It was me. After saying that I am leaving I just couldn't resist and came back posing as a sultry seductive siren. This place is addicting.

I remember doing something similar for my crack addiction back in the day but the memories are a little hazy for some inexplicable reason.

J/K.

Scott.. does your aunt have any eligibility left?

3:43 PM  
Blogger IV said...

Go Tigers, beat Bama. War Eagle.

3:43 PM  
Blogger Andrew said...

It took until 3:00 p.m. cst today for me to see the first bammer mobile decorated with fresh white shoe polish on windows/windshields (front and back)..

There was an abundance of RTRs and 13s...couldn't make it all out..

Congrats to all NN and FTH members!

Carroll to Seattle? I have a feeling the Pimp Hand of Destiny is about to hit USC.

3:44 PM  
Blogger IV said...

Bout time.

3:45 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

I'm with ya, IV.

3:46 PM  
Blogger AU1N04 said...

Don't be surprised if nothing happens because USC makes so much mula for the NCAA

3:47 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Nah, I think we're going to wait to break it when they're going for 100. Interestingly (or not), tonight my daughter's gymnastics team will be celebrating the state championship they won back in December. Their festivities will be going on at the same time as the AU/UAT meet, but I'll bet almost none of the girls on my daughter's team even realize it. I guess it's kind of like how most kids playing baseball these days don't keep up with MLB.

A question for Jay - The Bammerham News has printed several gushing articles on the great value of The Pacific Institute to saban's process. According to at least 2 of the writers, this group uses "mind conditioning techniques" to help the players keep a positive attitude. Every word in every article has been nothing but positive. Well, Scarbinsky did refer to them as "brainwashing" one time, but he doesn't count. The program is mandatory for the players - this isn't like a FCA meeting.

It seems to me that an objective reporter would at least give a paragraph to the fact that The Pacific Institute is a very controversial organization, that is regarded as a new age group by almost every evangelical organization that monitors such matters. Their founder, Lou Tice, authored a book and started a program called "New Age Thinking." There are a great many people who want nothing to do with their "mind conditioning," "mind control," "brainwashing," or whatever you want to call it. Yet the Bammerham paper ignores all of this, and indeeds censors it when posted as a comment to one of their blogs.

Jay, do you not think it good journalism that these things should at least be mentioned?

Of course, saban wouldn't like it, so I suspect that is the reason they get a free pass.

I realize that there a lot of different views of the techniques that this group uses. If saban wants to use brainwashing techniques on his players, I suppose that's their business. I just don't understand how in a state in the Bible Belt, not a single reporter is willing to say a word against such a controversial program. And many of the preachers and others associated with the bammer program know that the group's techniques do not line up with what they are teaching, and yet there is nothing but silence about it.

By the way, The Pacific Institute has a program for elementary schools, and with all the positive publicity they are getting, look for it soon at a school near you.

Ken Adams to LSU

3:51 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Coosa, it's nothing to get too worked up about. They're just teaching all the Bammer players to say "specific" instead of "pacific".

3:52 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

I feel the Ken Adams boat sailed when Cam Newton signed.

3:53 PM  
Blogger Phormerly Phred said...

WHEW! Glad to know I'm still safe.

I'm with you in spirit always. Just don't have th kind of time I used too.

WDE - HATE BAMA - COLT IS A WUSS

3:53 PM  
Blogger AU1N04 said...

Seanzie - Agreed. He wasn't going to count to last yr and I think they wanted others that might have 4 yrs left.

3:55 PM  
Blogger AU1N04 said...

Look for Lemonier then.

3:57 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

My thoughts exactly.

3:59 PM  
Blogger 61northak said...

Me in the notable newcomers section? I'm not new. I've been reading HABOTN since near the beginning. I'm not particularly notable as a poster, but I am a world class lurker. But who am I to question the great JGT?

OK. Recognition accepted. Now, back to lurking.

4:01 PM  
Blogger coosa said...

I'm sure you are right, Scott. I'm not worked up over it, just trying to add a little substance. I suspect that if Chizik had brought the group in to work with Auburn, the articles would have taken a different slant.

By the way, if anybody wants to read some other views of them, put the following into any search engine:

"Pacific institute Lou Tice new age cult"

You can read for hours.

Also, the last time Alabama was called for holding was about 7 games ago or 38 quarters to be more specific.

I feel like their OL Coach should be on everyone in the NFL's wish list.

4:02 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Coos: I'd approach that story with a different angle, but I'm not on that beat. Not sure what to say.

4:02 PM  
Blogger CH=B=claim13 said...

Ken Adams=corndog which means our coaches know Lemonier is comeing...mark it down.

4:03 PM  
Blogger diggerforAu said...

Congratulation to all the Newcomers and the Feeling the Heat hotties. Pete Carroll may be feeling a different heat.

4:03 PM  
Blogger CH=B=claim13 said...

I think everyone in bammerham has been brainwashed. Can someone find me a job in the gump? I can't take it anymore.

4:04 PM

Regarding my new status...i'm honored, touched even.

Regarding Aero...when did you get back?

Regarding Pacific brainwashing...does it include course material on how not to smile?

Tubs to USF

Discuss

I think when McCoy went out Nicky turned his back to the camera and snickered.

It's warm, he has a nice recruiting bubble, it's a major conference yet not really competitive. It'd be a good fit.

USF may be a good fit but until something happens at TT I don't believe he will jump on it. He will discuss it I am sure.

Seanzie - I think it is a better fit than TTU

4:09 PM

am I officially allowed to refer to everyone here as "Hotties"?

4:10 PM  
Blogger Andrew said...

Coosa--That was very interesting, and don't worry, you brought more substance than I ever have in my 2 1/2 years of sporadic posting..

I bet if any of the beat hacks in bammerham covered that the way jay would they wouldn't have the best fortunes afterward.

Saban to the Seahawks....

nah
