Furr played in 12 games this past season for Memphis, starting in two of them. He recorded 15 tackles in those 12 games.

His buddy Jarmon Fortson had 41 catches for 537 yards and 4 TDs for the Florida State Seminoles.

I'm working on brisket this morning...again. We are "struuuuuuuggggggling" with brisket. There's such a fine line between overdone and tough.

I'm going to try the Myron Mixon method to cooking brisket at a higher temperature.

He's a three time world champion on the BBQ circuit so maybe I should do what he does huh?

11:43 AM  
Blogger Phormerly Phred said...

There's a BBQ circuit? I mean, do people go pro and stuff?

11:52 AM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Oh yeah Phred..

This may be more than you want to know but there are actually two circuits.

One is run by the Kansas City BBQ Society and one is run by the group that runs Memphis in May.

There's a show on TLC right now about a few of the pros...Myron Mixon is in that group. He's won Memphis in May three times. According to the show he's won nearly $700,000 in prize money over the course of a few years.

My brother in law and a friend of ours started a team this past year and entered a few contests. We didn't win but we did well enough to get hooked. We are expanding the number we are going to compete in this year. I'm probably the more serious one on our team. They are more interested in the social aspect of the competition. We are in no way professionals. Some of these guys have $20,000 in grils and motor homes like you see at Alabama or Auburn games.

12:01 PM  
Blogger Phormerly Phred said...

That just leaves me speechless. I would have never imagined. Any guys from our former coaching staff on the circuit?

12:05 PM  
Blogger AU1N04 said...

Things that just make you continue to laugh.....and also wonder why this guy was born on 3rd base.

Lane Kiffin has only been the USC head football coach for 10 days and has already committed his first secondary violation.

Volquest.com is reporting that the former Vols football coach picked up a recruit from the airport in a limo.

12:07 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

that recruit was Ambles.

I also saw where $aban is "bumping" into recruits again.

As the wise Herman Edwards once said.

"You play to win the game!"

12:09 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

LOL...I don't think so, but you never know.

There are several strong teams from Alabama though.

The most prominent is the group from Big Bob Gibson's BBQ out of Decatur. They have won Memphis in May twice I think.

Auburn successfully making the game ugly. Fundamentals vs. Vandy is a losing proposition. They will out-fundamental you.

Make it a street fight.

Auburn in the half-court offense is ... uh ... not good.

hope this isn't like the UT game and we play well in the first half and come out cold

So is this SEC Network deal the best or what? I mean, you can find a lot of SEC games on. I love it.

Anyone ever been to Vandy's basketball arena? It is the weirdest setup I've ever seen on tv, but I've never been their live.

I love Memorial Gym.

It feels like a stage you'd see at the opera. Everyone needs to go at least once. Nothing else like it anywhere.

1:36 PM

Getting sloppy here at the end of the half.

1:36 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Thanks for the insight Jay G. Might need to find a reason to attend.

1:37 PM  
Blogger stupup74 said...

Jay,

I went a few years ago when Vot and that class were freshman.

Auburn was lucky to score 50 points in that game, but Memorial Gym was a wonderful place to watch a game.

I grew up in Nashville, I love this arena,
It's a great place to see a game.

Jay G - I was wrong about that. I misread what I was misreading. But somebody please send the link to Gus. He needs to see that!

1:47 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

I think Auburn played a pretty good half. They had some movement on offense (usually don't), hit free throws (usually don't) and rebounded (usually don't).

1:50 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Well...this looks familiar.

1:57 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

I think Auburn is trying to see how fast it can give up a 13 point lead. Good lord.

1:58 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

I wish Lebo would yell at the refs and players who make mistakes. Not all the time but sometimes you have to in order to get a spark. All he does is make stupid little faces.

2:09 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Well, this game is almost over with. Lebo is only able to play one good half of basketball a game. It's pathetic.

2:11 PM  
Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

Once again, the men have blown a nice lead...

Well, so much for using part of my tax return (which isn't much to begin with) to get a mini-laptop so I can keep up with the Hotties while watching tv. Buddy has to have surgery to remove bladder stones - this will be his 2nd one.

2:12 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

And finally...the lead is blown. I hate LEBO!!!!

2:12 PM  
Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

Eddie, I agree...pathetic.

2:13 PM  
Blogger stupup74 said...

Auburn has committed 7 fouls to Vandy's two in the 2nd half???? Most of which happen to be on our 2 big guys who guard olgilvy.

That guy gets too many calls.

2:15 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Luv- Best of luck with Buddy's surgery. Sucks to have to spend money that way.

2:15 PM  
Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

I thought I read on here that Auburn may give Lebo two more years. I just don't see how they can.

Eddie, it really does. The vet bill yesterday was $311. That, of course, had to be put on the credit card. It may be my own fault, though. He was supposed to be on a special diet after the 1st surgery, but the food was around $17 for a 5lb bag.

2:19 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Great. Technical difficulties...I guess Auburn's play is so bad is tearing up the live feed.

2:19 PM  
Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

Anybody else having technical difficulties? I've been having them the whole game. The HD just went out. Fortunately, the SD is still up and running.

2:21 PM

Great, they have now put the Steve Harvey Show in place of the basketball game. This blows.

Cold shooting and both bigs with 4 fouls = 31-13 run for Vandy in the 2nd half.

2:26 PM

Norm, we have spent AT LEAST $2000 over the past 5 years. Not nearly as much as you, but when I don't have it, it's a lot. I love him, but after this surgery, he won't be having any more.

I like em both!

Owens was laughing because John Chavis is coming for an in-home visit this week. "I've told him over and over again that I'm 100% Auburn, but he's still telling me how good I'd be at LSU. I feel like I owe it to him to hear him out. He's worked really hard. I've been honest with him that I won't be going to LSU, but if he wants to come ... he's welcome."

2:46 PM

Let's see, for entertainment tonight, I actually bought a big puzzle to do. Haven't done one in years, but my daughter is now into them, so we got her one and I got one. Should be fun.

Eddie,

I wish I could, but the developers are not developing fast enough. If they would hurry up I could test and we could all go home.

Stu- You are not a lab test subject are you? I mean, no chance you come out a bama fan after the developers develop. :)....I Kid!

Norm, we are boring too. The only time we do anything is during football season.

Side note: I got to thinking the other day. The thing I enjoy most about this blog is that I think everyone on here seems to realize there is another human being on the other side of the computer (or in wtc's case, two, counting his mom). It makes it nice to post and chat on here.

Alot of sites are not like that. For example: Bravesjournal.com (run by a bama fan) is not. It is nice to come in here, chat about a really bad basketball team or something else while I am stuck at work.

Big props to everyone for that.

Eddie,

No joke, I was raised a Bama fan (aka a walmatarian) and was diehard for 20 some odd years. Yodaddy334 can tell you stories.

However, I saw the light after attending Auburn. (It took awhile, cause Bama was ingrained deep.) Being an Auburn fan is awesome. It is truly great to be an Auburn Tiger.

Speaking of the Braves (notice I've refused to talk AU basketball?), do they play commercials on the radio in other markets outside of the ATL area about Cox's last year? I only listen to non-XM radio in the mornings during my 10 minute drive to the office but there's one playing here regularly that bugs the fool out of me. Joe Simpson says "ask anyone to give you a one word description of Bobby and they'll say 'he's the best'". Uhm, I know I only went to school in Alabama, but isn't that more than one word? It's the little things that bother me.

I agree Stu that's why after a short time lurking I decided to join. The 1st few times I saw this blog I didn't understand anything that was going on. It didn't take me long to see everyone was Au fans (FSJ excluded) and everyone was nice and polite to one another. It's nice to chat with like minded people who care so much for Auburn.

G also provides good info and other chip in as well.

Stu- Cool story about being an Auburn fan. As far as the blog, we are all here for the same reasons. Most lurk for awhile and then start posting. I've really really enjoyed this blog and it feels like family here.

3:10 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Well, I'm off for a run. Check you guys later!

Norm,

I have not heard any braves commercials up here in Chattannooga, so I quess not. I like Joe Simpson as a color guy, but I don't think he is the bright bulb in the box.

I am going to mute the TV this year since Chip is doing all 162 games. Boog was the best we had since Ernie Johnson, but ESPN jacked him.

Yeah the developers finished something. I'm back to work.

I'll shut this thing down rather than have it become a flame war.

I have shut it down before. I'll do it again. I have nothing at stake financially, so this thing can go dark and I wouldn't be upset.

With that said, I hope it never comes to that again ... and we can stay rational and intelligent indefinitely!

Did I miss something?

What elicited this response from JayG?

IF you shut this place down down... we'll riot with pitchforks on your front lawn...

We've had a few testy moments here and there, but other than that folks here are pretty civil.

A big part of it is the Google ID requirement, and the byzantine signup process, both of which I heartily approve.

Most of it is due to the diligence of our proprietor/moderator.

JGT: he's good at his trade.

3:57 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

First, wtc goes on sabbatical and takes his mom with him. Now, Jay threatens to shut us down if we don't behave. Could it get any worse?!!

And, Jay, surely you would miss us if you shut down the blog? Are we just a job - don't we mean anything to you :)

3:58 PM  
Blogger FearlessFreep said...

Oh, BTW, I heartily recommend that everyone spend as much as is necessary to keep their pets healthy and help them lead long, happy lives.

My lovely spouse, Mrs Dr Freep, DVM, approves of this message.

Dang..I miss everything.

E-Bro/Faker, see stupup74's post from 3:01 pm.

JGT's response wasn't a warning, just an explanation for why HABOTN is, well, HABOTN.

4:01 PM  
Blogger missinit said...

Jay G.,

How long have you been blogging the HABOTN? I know I lurked a loooong time before I posted.

I've been around pre-Franklin days. When did you have to intervene and get nasty with us and shut it down??? Did I miss it???

I started posting when I realized this was a place where the Auburn Creed is really practiced.....with a little, well a lot of zeal, humor, thoughtfulness, ribbing, care, even an occasional take down when needed, but mostly a place where we actually care about each other and Auburn, even if some of us wouldn't know each of from Adam's housecat if we passed on the street.

Our commonality...is that a word(?) is we love Auburn, and I don't know how Faker fits in.....but somehow he does. Guess he keeps us real.

4:03 PM  
Blogger FearlessFreep said...

Faker fits in because he's a good guy, and he doesn't let his allegiances overcome that. . .most of the time, anyway. . . ;-]

Blogger FSJ said...

Thanks Freep..

Reading comprehension and Bammer are two things that usually don't go together.

4:05 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

To clear the air: I'm not mad with anyone and I haven't seen anything even remotely flamy of late.

My mini rant was in response to CH=B's comment about this place being a respectful place.

If it strays from that state of grace, the nefarious element will be eliminated by any means necessary.

4:05 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Missin: I think I started blogging in early 2006? Nobody at all commented for months and months.

Then Phred and Scottie and a few others got on board. The rest is history.

4:06 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

Back to our regularly scheduled program......LEBO MUST GO.

4:06 PM  
Blogger missinit said...

and I might add we still love Auburn when we suck ....at some things some of the time, .... just saying!

4:07 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

Lets just say G moves on one day to cover another program or sport. What will we all do?

I remember Jay disabling comments briefly at some point after i joined in October 2008.

techy peeps.... Seagate freeagent Go external hard drives? Yay or Nay?

I'm looking for a good, reliable, spacious but relatively cheap external hard drive to store music and photos on, in order to free up my laptop hard drive...Suggestions?

Looking at the Seagate Freeagent Go 320GB drive... for $79.00....thoughts?

4:15 PM  
Blogger missinit said...

I remember that too Faker, I thought he meant literally "shut it down" for a specified time...not just banhammering.

4:16 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

D Miller, Seagate is a good name brand. I would go for it. External hard drives are the way to go. Personally, I have 3 500GB external western digital myBook drives that have worked well for me. I basically have redundant backups on them and in the case of my computer turning to crap, I just hook up another and I am good to go. I would also recommend setting up something to regularly back up your internal hard drive data to the external drive. I have daily backups that run early in the morning.
