Welcome to "Football In Paradise"

Hey everyone. So it's very wet now in Tampa. The rain is everywhere.

I don't have a future in meteorology.

Here are a few more things I saw on my journey through the mezzanine. As if I'd subject myself to rain!



And the compulsory shot of the pirate ship.



Thanks for being here today. We appreciate you.

Gameday ran a piece on Saban. I had to change channels fast before I became ill.

8:55 AM

Cloudy cold and damp in DC. Snug and warm and getting settled in front of the tube.

8:58 AM  
Blogger AU MikeyC said...

Happy New year to all the HOTTIES hope everyones head is clear for the game.

I thought 11:30am ole Miss game was early, WOW!

8:58 AM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

The rain should favor the running game. I think Tate and FAH both have big days.

8:59 AM  
Blogger AU MikeyC said...

Know what you mean NoVaTiger don't want to start the new year off with your head in the toilet

I posted this onthe last thread:

Supercrip-Yeah. we get that list, AU will be OK. I know the players are different, but I recall Tulsa playing in a monsoon last year in the GMAC bowl and racking up 600 yards. It would be great if we can replicate that offensive performance today.

9:01 AM  
Blogger AU1N04 aka SuperCrip said...

I want to see Ben just blow it out!

9:02 AM  
Blogger AU1N04 aka SuperCrip said...

You gotta love when Cam Newton commits to Auburn, will enroll in January, and expects to compete for starting job....scrolls on the bottom of ESPN.

I am not saying he is a savior, I am saying he just might make everyone better.

9:04 AM  
Blogger Dadof3Girls said...

So ready to get this show on the road.

WTC - I'll take AU for 600 in the mud any day

9:08 AM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

The recruiting seems to be snowballing. The quality of the class so far was probably a factor in getting Cam. Cam in turn makes the class even more attractive to others.

It's important to remember that these kids can change their minds until they sign on the dotted line. 5 really solid players already signed should help solidify the other commitments.

9:11 AM  
Blogger Dear Leader said...

THe cam question(s) are:

Is he a leader - Won a NC in JC but could have had leadership on the team....

Can he pick up the GUS Bus O? He was able to pick up the JUCO o quick and win the NC so hopes are high.

Last but not least... can he be the CLEAR WINNER in the QB race as not to have a split team.

9:12 AM  
Blogger wtc said...

Nice looking Tiger Walk there on ESPN.

9:13 AM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

Shot of Tigerwalk on Gameday.

9:13 AM  
Blogger wtc said...

SO AU moved to 3rd spot on the Rivals listof rankings. Still a long time until NSD and others will close strong.

9:15 AM  
Blogger Jay 'W. not Tate' said...

That TigerWalk shot really pumped me up! Happy New Year AU fans!!! Couldn't have imagined a better holiday gift than Mr. Newton. When was the last time AU was #3 in the recruiting rankings on Rivals.com??? That's d@mn impressive!

9:16 AM  
Blogger wtc said...

Nothing likr putting the pressure on AU there Fowler.

9:18 AM  
Blogger wtc said...

With that said. this is the time AU needs to step up and be counted. We have the stage to ourselves for a while. As it pre-game video at the stadium says 'It is Our Time.'

9:19 AM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

Rivals has us right behind Bama. I'd love to see us pass them even if it's a totally bogus ranking.

9:20 AM  
Blogger missinit said...

HAPPY NEW YEAR HOTTIES!!!!!

For many reasons I for one am happy to say good riddance 2009!

Here's to a great 2010....and an Auburn win!

WAR EAGLE!!!

9:20 AM  
Blogger Jet the Dancin' Gopher said...

1. Fowler was tongue-bathing Fitzgerald, too.

2. Luv, you didn't do my blood pressure any good in the last thread saying that the uniforms had been changed.

9:21 AM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

I agree wtc. This really needs to be a statement game for next year.

9:21 AM  
Blogger AU1N04 aka SuperCrip said...

My last name is Fowler so when I was reading I was saying to myself...

Self, what the heck did I say? But I also thought, why in the heck is cousin Chris adding to the pressure?

9:24 AM  
Blogger AU1N04 aka SuperCrip said...

And before you ask, no there is no relation.

9:24 AM  
Blogger Dadof3Girls said...

1st - Win the Game
2nd - Make statement

I'll take an ugly win and wait till next year to make a statement

9:25 AM  
Blogger Dadof3Girls said...

That's not saying I wouldn't love a blow out statement today

9:25 AM  
Blogger AU1N04 aka SuperCrip said...

2010 - The year without Tebow!

9:27 AM  
Blogger Wade said...

Happy New Year and War Eagle to all the Hotties!

9:28 AM  
Blogger AU1N04 aka SuperCrip said...

Mornin Wade!

9:29 AM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

Tebow not getting the love this morning.

9:33 AM  
Blogger AU1N04 aka SuperCrip said...

For once!! I thought ESPN was the Tebow network?

9:34 AM  
Blogger AU1N04 aka SuperCrip said...

Or is that CBS Sports aka Verne Lundquist?

9:35 AM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

My stomach is doing flip-flops this morning - and I didn't even drink last night!

I am so ready for this game to get going before I stroke out.

9:36 AM  
Blogger Dadof3Girls said...

Well it's looking like the opening Warrrrrrrrrrrrrr Eagle is going to be the household alarm clock to start the new year. Still very quite here on the home front

9:42 AM  
Blogger Loganville Tiger said...

Happy New Year Everyone!!!

Great start to the '10 year with the signing of Newton. Keep it going with a statement game against NW.

I think the Tigers Dominate today.

War Eagle!!!

Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Loganville,

I hope you are right and I kinda feel the same way...but I'm always going to be leary of any team who loses to Kentucky.

9:46 AM  
Blogger Loganville Tiger said...

I just did some snooping around on ESPN and both columnist picked NW to win in a close game......

I just don't see it.

9:47 AM  
Blogger wtc said...

It has stopped raining in Orlando. Hopefully it will clear up in Tampa. It only rained here for about 1 hour.

9:47 AM  
Blogger AU1N04 aka SuperCrip said...

Jake knows his stuff!

9:49 AM  
Blogger Jet the Dancin' Gopher said...

Just win, baby.

9:50 AM  
Blogger Dadof3Girls said...

WTC - view on radar not looking so good

9:51 AM  
Blogger AU1N04 aka SuperCrip said...

Minutes before the game....I thought I would put something I saw up about the newbies that are possibly coming. Great things seem to be happening on The Plains!

While watching the Under Armor All American recruiting special the announcers found one thing that made the Auburn recruits stand out among their peers. They got into one group together like a family. The leader of this group was Michael Dyer.

They commented how the Auburn group toured Disney together having fun. There was no other group from any team that did this. We must remember this is a group made up of the top talent in the nation.

Every one of Auburn's recruits were together. Every team requires leadership and a sense of team. It appears the seven recruits committed to Auburn already have both.

9:53 AM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Let us all take a moment to give thanks for the butt kicking we are about to deliver. Embrace you Todness for one last time. War Eagle!!!

9:54 AM  
Blogger AU1N04 aka SuperCrip said...

All Hail the Todzilla!

And the Benitater!

9:55 AM  
Blogger Craig Miller said...

Just got up early and drove back from Biloxi with wife and friends. Wife puked all the way home in a bag (didn't wanna pull over and be late to watch my Tigers) She's in bed and I have Miller Lites to enjoy the game- WAR EAGLE

9:56 AM  
Blogger Loganville Tiger said...

Great point SuperCrip. It will pay dividends in the future.

georgia Tech had a similar class about 2 years ago I think? Look how they have fared with that class.

So are all our Scholy's now full? Are we done for the recruiting season assuming all sign?

9:57 AM  
Blogger Loganville Tiger said...

Your my new hero Craig.

9:58 AM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

NOrthwestern, I really have nothing against you, but you must be destroyed. In Todd We Trust!!! War Eagle!!!

10:02 AM

Wow, it's only been a minute, and these announcers are awful.

Darvin Adams, he's our man, if he can't do it, nobody can!!!

10:07 AM

Good defense, the offense capitalized, Ben Tate looked good. It could be a long day for NW.

10:10 AM

Game thread up.

I think Tate got in for the TD on his run.
