Furlough Day Five: Thursday

I am on a mandated and unpaid furlough as required by the Advertiser's parent company, Gannett. As such, I am not permitted to participate in blog-related activities for one week.

So we have these pre-loaded entries. That's all.

It's up to you to keep the HABOTN fresh until I return on Sunday, Feb. 21.

Have a nice day.

ps: I'll be watching Gretchen Bleiler win the gold in women's half-pipe tonight if you want to enjoy vicariously.

I am somehow reminded of the old SNL skit with Dana Carvey as Ross Perot and Phil Hartman as Adm. James Stockdale.

PEROT: "You know when you stood there silent during the debate and didn't say anything for an hour?"

STOCKDALE: "Yeah."

PEROT: "Sheer brilliance."

Modern version.

LEBO: "Dewayne, you know just before halftime when you stood at midcourt and dribbled away the shot clock because you were looking at the game clock?"

REED: "Yeah, coach."

LEBO: "Sheer brilliance."

6:51 PM

Did Reed just now do that or are you talking about another time that I seem to remember him doing the same thing? I am not watching, but about to get in my car and listen.

He got the unguarded 10 second violation vs. UK when the game was on the line. Just before the half with a 3 second differential, he dribbled the ball and moved it too late for us to get a shot.

This is why I don't want Lebo around after this season.

I understand he's a great guy, and he absolutely doesn't cheat, and he's the lowest paid HC in the league.

I just think we could find someone who matches all of the above criteria who could at least teach his kids to keep their heads in the game. This bunch frequently acts like they've never been coached before.

WTC ...

I don't think Lebo is a bad coach of the game, despite the opinion of many here. I think he was a horrible fit for Auburn, and I think he's lost this team.

8:11 PM  
Blogger stupup74 said...

Jeff Lebo knows the game of basketball. He just happens to be the laziest coach I have ever seen.

At the end of the first half, he should have took a timeout to set up a play. You lose that bonus timeout whether you use it or not.

He did not call timeout until there was less than a minute left. He had 3 timeouts, but let Sullivan and Reed foul out when he could have called TO and set up O for D.

I know we only pay so much, but he is just lazy. He looks like he wants to leave. As far as I am concerned he can hit the road when we hire the rifleman.

8:15 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

wtc - I'd originally signed up for the full before the surgery, but since I'm just now able to start running again I changed my registration to the half. So, another half it is.

8:15 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

He has been a bad fit, I agree. he will probably be gone after another season. he will get hired by a school where he doesn't have to sell the program and will probably wind up winning. Meanwhile Au will hire some unknown and be last or next to last in the SEC for the next 5 years. I say that and I am not being negative.

8:16 PM  
Blogger Fearless Freep said...

See, Jet, that's where I disagree.

In my opinion, a 'good' coach would NEVER lose his team.

If the players aren't listening to him, he can bench every last one of them. Hold open tryouts and put a bunch of frat boys out there and lose by 40 every game.

That would be preferable to what appears to be happening now.

8:16 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

So, I know how to slalom water ski and I'm not too bad at it. Is it essentially the same principle for snow boarding? I wouldn't think about trying to do this halfpipe stuff but I just wonder if I'd be able to put on a snowboard and not kill or make a fool of myself the first time out.

8:21 PM  
Blogger Jet Jacobs said...

Here's another problem.

It's a team full of 2s and 3s, yet none has consistent ability to create his own shot. No point guard, and Knox isn't much in the post.

Somebody pointed this out on Bill Cameron's show the other day, and I think it's true:

Auburn invariably gets stuck in the half court. Reed is the one stuck with the ball at the top 10 with seconds to go and he has no faith in Knox inside to make a play in the final seconds of the shot clock. One out of every five times he makes a play. It's partly his fault, but it's partly others' fault.

What strikes me is our in ability to work in half court against the zone. We just pass station to station around the outside. No one gets to the soft spot at the foul line (go watch Marquis Daniels vs. Syracuse), and we don't skip pass well.

If you're playing Auburn, press only to slow them down to get to half court, but not to force turnovers. Odds are you'll stop them 67 percent of the time in the half court.

8:22 PM  
Blogger Jet Jacobs said...

Freep, we're talking about different things.

You're talking psychology, and motivation. I'm speaking only to the schemes. We play good defense. Lebo has a good feel when to change the look and the tempo.

I'll disagree with your original. Plenty of good coaches lose teams. In our ADD world, it happens frequently.

8:24 PM  
Blogger Jet Jacobs said...

Norm ...

For you, I'd recommend the hash pipe before I'd recommend the half pipe.

8:25 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

Well, since one is illegal and the other may be borderline insanity, I'll just avoid both of them. Shouldn't be too hard for me to do that.

8:31 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

Although Auburn sucks I saw a little that I liked. Lebo finally got fired up and showed some emotion. I also like that he played a lot of the younger guys. I don't know if he did it to send a message to the others or if it was to build them for next year. Either way I liked it.

9:28 PM  
Blogger Spongeworthy said...

I'm late to the party but I'll weigh in on Lebo's team. Jet is right in that they have no big men of consequence, and no point guard. No point guard in bball is like no QB in football.

We aren't quick
Can't dribble drive
Can't play one on one
Can't defend one on one.
Below Average rebounding team.
I don't agree Jet that we know how to play defense. Average at best.
We can't shoot.
Can't shoot free throws.

In short, AU has NO IDENTITY. We have no phase of the game in which we are exceptional. To be successful, you have to have at least one phase of the game you can count on. AU has none.

9:33 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Norm, Molly dog agrees. She just finished her ice cream and is heading to bed. I've still got a bit of work to do.

9:37 PM  
Blogger Spongeworthy said...

AU's issues always come back around to recruiting.

Do you recruit a big team to pound it inside, get the other team in foul trouble, shoot free throws, run half court offense.

Do you recruit a run and gun team that plays pressure defense, presses full court, primarily fast break offense.

Do you recruit to a fundamentally sound basketball approach w/ a complicated half court offense like the Princeton offense. Great shooters?

Lebo has recruited to no particular style of play. At least not well enough to run that style.

9:39 PM  
Blogger Spongeworthy said...

Anyway, that's my opinion and I'm sticking with it. Regardless of if there is no one left here to see it, or care. Lebo, not the most interesting bball coach in the world. His motto, stay thirsty for wins my friends.

9:43 PM

Seeing how gay the American Gold Medal winning figure skater looked, makes me wish that was one event we didn't win.

Seriously, I get its not the most masculine sport, but what was up with his get up.

I liked Johnny Weir's statement that he's a world class Olympic athlete, but sometimes people forget that because of his personality.

If he didn't win it the gay from russia would have so it was may the best gay win

11:46 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

The gay guy from Russia isn't actually gay. He's married, I think...to a woman.

Homophobic much?

12:05 AM  
Blogger jhag said...

Yeah homophobic a lot...he switch hits I bet though

Blogger E-Bro said...

Ha! Ha!

It's still Friday! Yippee!!!

Time to rise and shine, Hotties.

WARRRRRR EAGLE!!!

32 yrs ago today a wonderful young man was born. He given above average intelligence, good looks and more than enough athletic ability. He is also kind and thoughtful. He loves his family, God, animals and Auburn football. Who is the young man?

OH wait its me.

I think I left out modesty.

Happy Friday everyone.

Good morning, Hotties! T.G.I.F.F.!!!

E-Bro and Eddie, why didn't you call me out on my idiocy yesterday morning? I was confusing Jacobellis with Vonn. I didn't find this out until last evening. At that point, I REALLY felt like an idiot!!

Well, I didn't see much of anything last night. My IH got the best of me and I was falling asleep before 7:00.

THT ... Oh, I remember the SLA days.

Steve ... meet my candidate, VCU coach Shaka Smart.

6:39 AM  
Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

LOL, CH=B! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!
Lots of good folks born in February!

6:39 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Happy Birthday CH!

Luv- Because you're not Steve :)!!!! Just kidding Steve.

6:39 AM  
Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

Eddie, well I'm sure you could have found a polite way to inform me of my error!

6:40 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Luv- E-Bro and myself have been raised in this manner by our Mom. "Mom is always right and the only time she was wrong was when she thought she was wrong" so we sometimes find hard to correct a Madam :).

6:43 AM  
Blogger Norm said...

Morning folks.

Happy Birthday CH-B

Call her Jacobellis, call her Vonn, call her a taxi. It won't matter to me. I still don't remember what she supposedly did in '06 or how she may have been mistreated (allegedly) by Costas.

6:47 AM  
Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

Eddie, well, yeah, I'm usually right, but in this case, I was wrong. ;-)

6:55 AM  
Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

I'm sure this has been discussed, but I don't get why Tiger Woods is having a press conference today. So what if he's a public figure? He doesn't owe anyone an apology or explanation except his family.

7:09 AM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

Luv - he's doing it to get back in good graces with the sponsors that have stayed with him, and to get back the sponsors he had.

The name of the event, at least for many of the radio shows here in Atlanta, has been "renamed" to a press statement, instead of a press conference. Evidently because its going to be held like Land Kiffin's exit meeting. Except with substantially fewer reporters and cameras.

7:16 AM  
Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

He doesn't have to make a public statement. He could go to each of his sponsors in private.

7:20 AM  
Blogger Jet Jacobs said...

Today is reporting that this "statement" is a part of the "rehab."

Is there a clinic that treats HABOTN addiction? I wonder the treatments would be.

7:20 AM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

If he doesn't do this in public his public image remains tarnished. Of course this event, will obviously take care of all that.

7:23 AM  
Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

Again, it doesn't have to be this public.

7:25 AM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

Jet, I thought this period of time between signing day and the start of Spring practice was supposed to be the time we get weened off the HABOTN, especially since we don't currently have a stellar basketball program.

7:25 AM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

He's the face and identity of the PGA, it has to be this public.

That being said, winning cures a LOT of problems.

7:29 AM  
Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

mrtommyd, your last sentence was sarcastic, right?

7:30 AM  
Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

and that was referring to your 7:23 post.

7:31 AM  
Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

Well, he shouldn't be the sole face and identity of the PGA. There are how many other golfers on tour?

7:33 AM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

:) yeah love the last note was sarcasm.

And there are hundreds of thousands of golfers out there. But NONE of them, absolutey NONE of them will double or triple the viewership of a golf tournament like Tiger does. Like I eluded to, this is all about money. If it weren't about money, Luv, he would be doing this in private, just like you said he should.

7:37 AM  
Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

Well, all the Hotties know how I feel about big money.

7:40 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

It's been a busy messed up couple of days in my world, how have things been in HABOTNland?

I guess I showed up in time to watch Norm flip the page.

7:41 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Also, any one know if Jay G is doing the Hatin' segment today?

7:44 AM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

Good morning, hot ones! And a wonderfully happy birthday to CH=B!

Just popping in to say a quick hello. I hate hotel computers. Hope to see you when we get to my daugher's tonight.

Have a fantastice Friday!!! Life is good :)

7:44 AM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

In my quick read last night someone (J-Kev?) reported he would.
