Blogger FSJ said...

Well.....since we are probably all in agreement that both Alabama and Auburn will have top notch recruiting classes this year.....

Keep in mind that this question is with my tongue firmly planted in my cheek...Actually it is just to pick at a few folks that asked the questions over the past two years.. you know who you are.. :-P

The story last year was that Alabama must be cheating because they had a top class........

Does that mean that Auburn is this year? Or is it simply that the Auburn recruiters are that good?

I don't think most of the talk of cheating was simply because they had a good class. I think it more or less came from what the recruits were driving.

1. Go ahead and underestimate Phil Fulmer. Do so at your own peril.

2. Shouldn't it be "The Limpin' Lebos" or the "The Lame-O Lebos?"

3. Ehyou is right. Faker, it means your program is still filled with and surrounded by a buncha cheatin' b@$t@rd$, and our guys are Angels of Mercy.

4. I like Lebo, but he's not gettin' it done. Maybe he should go duck huntin' or somethin' so I can whip up a little more anger.

5. Scottie B, if you stay from tipoff to final buzzer, you deserve a certificate of achievement or something.

6. I think we need WTC to post a picture of Mom as his avatar. We need to see if she looks trustworthy.

7. Hornet, change your avatar. I'm feeling weak. If you don't I will continue my march toward Type 2 HABOTNetes.

Another somewhat controversial thing....

From what I understand and have heard from people I respect....Greg McElroy will have the fight of his life on his hands in spring/fall practice for the starting job.

I normally would blow this off to being typical offseason chatter....but the fact that they moved A.J. to second team this season makes me believe it.

We don't need no stinkin' Bama QB discussions on the HABOTN in January. Possibly during the May-June doldrums. At that point it would be a distraction from the inevitable AU QB chatter.

Maybe I missed something, but didn't McElroy just "win" them a championship? Is he not also undefeated in the regular season? Sounds to me like he wouldn't get the starting job only if he didn't want it. Gawd I hate bama.

Not sure if it's been mentioned yet, but Jay Ratliff was named to the AP All-Pro team this week.

I never would have thought he would be one of the best DT's in the league. I thought a solid contributor, but never the level he's played at so far in his career.

Just for wondering, what position did Carlos Dansby play at Auburn?

10:24 AM

If the guy's better, then he's better, no matter what McElroy did this year.

Karlos Dansby came to Auburn as a WR, moved to a safety/LB hybrid then a LB for his final two years.

Carlos Rogers was pretty good if I am remembering correctly. I think(?) he won the Thorpe award while at AU.

I sure remember his name being called a lot if that is of any value.

Mainly I remember him because he was a pesky defensive back for an opposing high school team when my son was the QB of our team.

Not AU (or even UTK) related, but did anybody ever post this? It's from a Mark Schlabach article at ESPN.com. I sure would have liked to have seen McCoy stay in the game and for him to have been right in his assessment of what was going to happen:

Even in only five plays, McCoy told his father he'd seen enough to know the game's outcome would have been different if he'd stayed on the field.

Said Brad McCoy, who coached his son at Jim Ned High School in tiny Tuscola, Texas: "He looked up at me and said, 'Dad, I had 'em. I had 'em. I knew everything they were doing before they did it. I was fixin' to complete every pass I was going to throw tonight.'"

I knew everything they were going to do before they did it. Well he should have known to get outta the way of that big fella that made his arm go dead.

11:09 AM  
Blogger Jet Jetarsky said...

A couple of things ... not picking on any posters.

1. What were the McCoy's supposed to say? "It was a good thing he (I) got hurt. Rolondo was gonna put him (me) in the hospital, and UAT was going to kick our @$$." Games take twists and turns -- physically and emotionally. UAT was the better team and would have likely won another way with McCoy on the field. At least, that's my opinion.

2. If a player -- ours or otherwise -- wants to give some love to his high school, preschool or anywhere in between on the intro, more power to him. At some point in the game, an announcer is likely to say, "Dansby, a 8-year pro out of Auburn ..."

Damien Robinson: 20% and Steady. He may visit but I doubt it.

Byran Jones: 40% and I expect this number to be much higher after his visit.

Mike Thornton: 50% and Steady.

Jeffrey Whitaker: 80% and Climbing

Lache Seastrunk: 10% and Declining

MTD and Jet, good points by both of you. I still would have liked to see what would have happened with McCoy in for the whole game. Going in, I thought Bammer was better and that McCoy was TX's only chance, so once he went out, I knew it was over. Actually, when I turned the game on, TX was already on their 2nd offensive series, so after watching for a second, I noticed a different QB in, then said, "No effing way!", then knew it was over.

11:25 AM  
Blogger digger4au said...

All games are full of ifs and buts. The way you tell who wins is look at the scoreboard and when the clock says 00:00 and the score reads team A 14 team B 13. Team A wins. who lost the ball the most, what players finished the game who had the most yards etc. does not matter.

11:26 AM

FSJ, you can't tell me that you didn't immediately feel better about your chances once McCoy went out.

Its not like he got hurt playing pickup basketball the week before the game..

He was knocked out of the game.

11:30 AM

Besides, when did UA-T earn anything on their own? They either get it by cheating or by other nefarious means. At least that's what I was taught as a young child.

11:33 AM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

FSJ, you know I'd be just as happy as you are if that had been AU instead of UAT in that game. I'm just saying that I would have much rather seen them at full strength with their team leader and former Heisman front-runner in the game instead of a freshman playing his only meaningful football of the season in the MNC game. Without a better-than-average passing game, I don't think TX stood a chance. They might not have anyway.

In 2002, we still had Jason Campbell.

In 2009, the only offensive players Texas had left that were worth a darn were Shipley and the other WR's. Hard to get them the ball w/o a quarterback.

Also, you can't tell me that Colt getting knocked out didn't have some effect on the Texas defense.

I'm not one of those guys who thinks that had Colt stayed in, he definitely would have beaten Bama. Nor can Bama fans claim that it wouldn't matter whether Colt got hurt or not.

Nobody (I mean Nobody) knows, though I don't blame Colt for having confidence in himself that he would have gotten it done.

Thanks for the Fulmer post Jay. Why do I get them impression that Fulmer was trying to describe everything Kiffikin wasn't. Yes, it does seem that Fulmer is looking to do something, whether it be to roast an AD or become an AD.

We'll see if integrity is making a comeback or not with the ut hire.

Digger...that was more or less what I was saying.

Bama won the game. That's that. I understand when Bama fans take offense to others saying that with Colt McCoy, Texas definitely would have won.

I also understand when a Texas fan gets annoyed when someone says that even if Colt had played on, Bama still would have won.

Nobody knows. The game certainly would have been different, but the result might not have been. That's the broader point I was trying to make.

Bama's got nothing to apologize for. Neither does Colt McCoy and Texas.

Fulmer does not need to be the UT AD.

First of all there would be more mattress burning b/c fully 1/2 of the fans are tired of him.

Secondly: He really isn't qualified to run that large of an organization in 2010. He was a football coach only and doesn't have the business training or mental tools to do what is required now-a-days.

Of course if they were to hire him ...we could watch more train wrecks!

Has there been a Hitler Youtube made of Lane Kiffin leaving yet?

Usually by this time of year, there's substantial info about which recruits are likely bound for prep/juco. I haven't heard any of that talk this year. IF we signed all the current commits plus the likes of Lattimore, Whitaker, Mack, & Lemonier (I can dream), at least one of our signees would be grey-shirt/prep/juco. Just wondering who might fall in that category.

Thanks, Seanzie. Didn't see your reply before I posted.

Bama won. Bama would have won regardless.
Saban sat on the lead (Tubs style)and tried to stuff the run. The young Tx Qb got comfortable and snuck a few passes past the run D. Bama then dialed up the coverage and pass rush and then crushed them.

As for Colt's observations, the Bama D would have adjusted/disquised. It happens all of the time. You don't successfully play defense in the SEC all season without being able to adjust.

I love Colt and hate Bama, but when I take my biased glasses off, that is what I see.
