OT: Ashley Judd is serious about her Cats

Hey everyone. I was reading through my hero John Clay's excellent blog this morning when I stumbled upon this video of Ashley Judd, UK graduate, talking about her team.

I'm struck by a few things.

a.) You know what No. 1 is. She's talented.

b.) She knows basketball.

c.) She (allegedly) reads message boards.

d.) Every school needs someone like this.

If you're as enthusiastic about Ms. Judd as I am, please watch this video and enjoy: Video: Ashley Judd talks about her Cats

(We're going to the 5 p.m. mass today, hence a rare Sunday morning post.)

But it won't so I won't.

THT, AU has Barkley!

I don't like Brady, so I have to pull for the Ravens.

Blogger cincytiger said...

Did anyone watch Barkley on SNL last night? It seemed to me the monologue and every skit were about racism. I finally turned it off. I found it incredibly unfunny.

12:12 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

I taped it Cincy, but I haven't watched it yet.

12:13 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

When we want to watch SNL skits, we put in the DVDs of the first season. Now those were some funny skits!

12:13 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I'd rather watch Ashley Judd than Chuck Barkley, no offense.

Plus, Ashley Judd doesn't rip the UK administration after being misinformed that Jeff Lebo was Auburn's first choice in the 2004 coaching search.

12:13 PM

Ravens already up 14-0.

I would rather watched Ashley Judd than Charles Barkley. He's a joke.

Kathy,
It's rare that something can mae me want to barf my ice cream. You almost succeeded with thatt comment.

Cincy - I did not watch. I think I turned to some old movie.

12:16 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

So I had a friend of mine, a fellow writer, tell me last night: "Saban just made Chizik's job a lot tougher."

And, you know, I don't agree with that. At all.

I think I'll write a column about that for Monday's newspaper.

12:17 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

JGT,
Don't know if you saw my comments on the last thread, but I did enjoy your column today on AU recruiting.

12:18 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

hi JGT. I thought for sure you'd be attending Mass in Lubbock this afternoon.

12:19 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

I watched SNL last night... Barkley was good, funny. I thought the skits did lean heavily towards the racism issue... but I thought it came off more like Barkley was making fun of himself pushing the racism issue more than anything


With that said, I'd rather watch Ashley Judd any day... I have always been a fan of her talent.

12:20 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Thanks for reading, Cincy!

12:21 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

D.Miller,
Maybe. I guess I was just sensitive to it because he has been on the talk shows around bham spewing his Turner Gill nonsense.

12:21 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

Yep, I enjoyed your article too JGT. Adams is a big boy, but AU couldn't wait on him to get his grades in order. If he was having difficulty in JC, how would he do at Auburn?

Loved the Ashley video. She seems to really know what is going on during the game, not just sitting ther being a pretty face which she is.
Very talented young lady too.

Gotta give congrats to wake for winning the Bowl Pick'em.

I came in second.

I must sharpen my skills in time for the NCAA Tournament Pickem.

Am I crazy?

If you didn't watch the final episode of "Auburn Everyday" you should. Go the the following link. You don't have to sign in. Just click the free events button and then click watch on the 1st video. http://all-access.cbssports.com/player.html?code=aub&media=136549

12:37 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

If anything JGT, it makes the coaches and players more determined!

12:38 PM  
Blogger CH=B=claim13=WalMartian said...

At the end Chizik says that some guys on the team didn't even know the fight song. He is making it a point to turn these young men into real Auburn men not just football players. I like this man more and more everytime I hear him speak.

12:39 PM  
Blogger CH=B=claim13=WalMartian said...

The walmartians winning the MNC doesn't hurt us at all. If anything it will make us stronger. Think about it, a top 5 recruiting class when your biggest rival is doing what they are. These coaches aren't afraid of anything, and I don't think anything is going to stop them from doing great things.

12:40 PM

Ravens up 24-0. Brady seems to be throwing this one away, literally!

12:43 PM  
Blogger digger4au said...

No to the first one.

Jury still out on the second one.

The only affect I could see is everyone coaches and players will work harder and want to reach the same goal as Bama or any other team "BCS champions".

12:43 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

THanks CH=B. I forgot to go watch the last one.

12:43 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I'm watching that "Every Day ..." episode.

Love it when Ben Tate scored against Ole Miss. He dropped the ball on the ground afterward. Then Darvin Adams picked up the ball and gave it to the ref with a quickness.

I have no idea why Darvin is so meticulous about this. I've asked him about it ... and he just laughs.

12:45 PM  
Blogger CH=B=claim13=WalMartian said...

G-He is meticulous because I think Chizik demands it. Are you liking the episode so far? Just wait till the end. You will some things that make you say wow how could that be. And then you will see what kind of Auburn Man Chizik really is. If he does as I think he will then he will be at Auburn for a long time.

12:48 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

Jay-I wouldn't see how any sane person could think UA winning the championship made Chizik's job harder. They should take off the crimson colored glasses and think for themselves.
Reasonable folks can admit that UA had a very good team. Congrats to them, but to think AU has it any tougher is foolish. DO they think UAis just going to give playing because UA won?

12:48 PM  
Blogger CH=B=claim13=WalMartian said...

Kathy-It's worth the 30 minutes to watch it. I hope they do this again next year. Maybe on another network since I don't get CSS on DirectTv.

12:49 PM  
Blogger CH=B=claim13=WalMartian said...

Ziemba returning for his senior year.

12:52 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

CH=B,
All year they played it on ABC 33 at 10:30 am on Saturdays. For some reason they didn't show this last episode.

I loved it. I do hope they do this again next season.

12:52 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

Stupid of Baltimore to not challenge that last play.

12:53 PM  
Blogger digger4au said...

Good to hear about Zeimba he seemed to cut down on the false starts at the end of the season and didn't get beat too many times.

12:54 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I think the Ziemba stuff was bogus anyway. No way he was valued all that highly by NFL scouts.

12:57 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

I don't know if it made Chizik's job harder..

But I'd be curious as to how it would make it easier.

Auburn already had the "early playing time" thing going for them.

Like Saban said, If I were an elite prospect and somebody told me that I'd never get on the field at XYZ University...that would tick me off...and cause me to want to prove them wrong.

12:59 PM  
Blogger CH=B=claim13=WalMartian said...

walmartian alert!!!!

1:01 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Auburn won't have the "come here and play ... guaranteed" offer going much longer.

If they get 23-25 in school prior to two-a-days, things will be changing. There won't be any free rides.

1:05 PM  
Blogger CH=B=claim13=WalMartian said...

Where did everyone go?

1:10 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Watching the Ravens?

Talk to you guys later. Wish me luck I am going to the place where walmartians spawn.

Thanks.

1:13 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

FSJ,
You are too funny.

1:14 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

I think not challenging that turnover on the punt is really costing Baltimore. It seemed to totally change the dynamic of the game. And I think it would definitely have been overturned. He didn't have the ball after he hit the ground.

1:15 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

FSJ,
How is Abbie? Does this cold weather cause her more difficulty?

1:16 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Heck yeah bama winning the BCS title made Chizik's job tougher. When he goes recruiting around the state and has to pass by a walmart, his commute time is now an extra 15 minutes longer.

1:18 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

cincy,

Thanks for asking. Abbie is doing fine. She had a sinus surgery a month or so ago. One of the side effects of CF is that often times kids develop polyps in their sinuses. In fact that's what caused her ENT to refer her to be tested for CF.

The cold weather does present some challenges because you have to be on guard for colds and things like that. She's such a tough little girl and takes all of her medicines & therapies like a big girl.

1:21 PM

Hey Jay, thanks for the link.

1:22 PM

That's a lot for a little girl (and her parents) to handle. We still pray for her to stay healthy and that they will find a cure SOON.

Truly my pleasure, John.

Ashley Judd = The Best Kind of Substance

Whether UAT wins or loses, it has no bearing on my expectations for Auburn. It also has no bearing on the difficulty of task for Auburn.

Anyone who believes otherwise has been sucked into a Turd-centric universe and is need of rescue.

The only indoor soccer I see is the team I help coach with the REAL coach, Anderson Brooms.

Our team this season is sick.

We have two awesome girls up front, Korean twins in midfield, lots of grinder-type boys and two good goalies.

I'm feeling a championship.

If you're serious, you need to move to the mainland from Belize. Now.

Ochocinco is someone who I only recently learned about. Before that, I thought Ochocinco was a game you play in Las Vegas.

Jay, luckily enough I have established my own small country here in Columbia. Sure it is small, a two bedroom apartment, but it does keep me isolated from the world. I like to refer to it as the Hermitage.

All I got out of it was that he'd try to make chicken salad out of chicken ........

And that they'd keep the same offense but combine it with and SEC defense.

"Extremely effective on first and 15."

Alli Smalley is not helping defensively right now. At all.

3:14 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Tuberville keeping the Texas Tech offense is interesting. I don't think he would have got the job unless he agreed to that, but will CTT be able to stick with that wide open style? Inquiring minds want to know.

3:15 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Auburn doesn't have that go-to player like Dewanna anymore.

KeKe is helpful, sure, but she's not consistent enough to be a go-to.

3:15 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Is Alli sick? or just not interested in defense?

3:18 PM

I'm fine with him making chicken salad out of chicken.

As long as it does not involve BBQ'ing the chicken.

Saban seemed to be sending a pointed message to Smart on Friday when he said at a news conference that assistant coaches should not make lateral career moves.

“I’m not pleased when guys make lateral moves because it’s a little bit human nature to think, like my dad used to say, the grass is always greener on top of the septic tank,” Saban said. “You always think it’s better someplace else. You kind of let your ego get involved, and you make moves that you shouldn’t make and really aren’t in your best interests for a career standpoint.”

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.

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.
