Lattimore makes his decision

Tailback Marcus Lattimore of South Carolina will play at South Carolina. He said so in a program held at his church in nearby Spartanburg, S.C.

His finalists were South Carolina and Auburn.

In an interesting twist, Lattimore was given a cloth bag from former Auburn back Stephen Davis immediately prior to making a decision. He pulled out an Auburn hat to the obvious disapproval of the crowd. Then he pulled out a South Carolina hat. The crowd roared with approval.

More to come.

Is that dance music in the church?

best wishes to him on all but 2 days in the coming years. I say only 2 because there is no way they will be able to win the east and play us in the championship game

I'm glad I knew his decision beforehand. That would have ripped my heart out.

Blogger AU1N04 said...

Well good for him and congrats on his decision.

Now let the boys put him on the ground hard when they play!!

WDE!!!

Good luck to him. He seems like a nice young man from a good family.

I hope Eltoro plants his @$$ for 6 yard loss on his first carry in Jordan Hare.

Oh Well, we will beat his @ss for the next two years.

If they don't join ya, beat them.

Did Stephen Davis really assist?

5:12 PM  
Blogger Comm'r of Flesh Wounds said...

Decided after the last visit. Yep.

5:13 PM  
Blogger stupup74 said...

Then I hope he runs for 5000 yards and has a great NFL career.

5:13 PM  
Blogger Jimmy said...

On to the next one

5:13 PM  
Blogger AU1N04 said...

FSJ - Yes, actually pulled the hats out of a bag for him.

5:13 PM  
Blogger Comm'r of Flesh Wounds said...

He said Davis told him to go where his heart is. He (Davis) told him his heart was at Auburn.

5:13 PM  
Blogger eaglesteeler said...

That was interesting. IF S. Davis was hte one who helped him, then that is strange that he would represent USC in some fashion, when he is an AU man.

Just sayin'.

But I did like his hat trick. Neat. And can't fault a kid for wanting to make a name for himself in his home state....

The movie question about Amway is none other than the movie "Go."

5:14 PM  
Blogger stupup74 said...

One time, just one time, I want someone to do the hat trick and put on an Auburn hat.

As good as our class has been, we are 0-fer on the hat trick.

What?? Joey Matthews picked Tennessee over us?!?

I'll never smile again.

Sidney Crosby had a hat trick for the Penguins last night.

Blogger Comm'r of Flesh Wounds said...

You got it Seanzie: "It's not Amway. It's Confederated Products. It's a different company." (Go).

I'm just glad Auburn has Dyer, who's neither Amway nor Conf. Products!!!

5:17 PM  
Blogger LGGByron said...

We don't want lache, far too messy

I don't know, DL, but wtc promised us we would be happy tomorrow.

Blogger Eddie said...

Latt....hardly knew you. On to the next player.

Also, talked to E-Bro and I appologize if I seemed negative in any way about this class. I think this is a great class as is, even if we don't get another player.

5:18 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

That's a great movie, Cmm'r.

5:18 PM  
Blogger Dear Leader said...

hey ya cannot have them all...

it would take all the fun out of it...


and at the end of the day they are kids.... and its a game.... I hope they all get a degree..

Steve Spurrier did the cha-cha slide?

Yes, that was Stephen Davis. I didn't really have a problem with it. Now had this been between UAT and AU, I would have!

5:19 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

I am off work tomorrow but so is my wife. How do I explain to her that I have to watch the internets and TV all day to see what a bunch of 18 year old kids are doing?

5:19 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

Tell her you need to run some errands and go to the starbucks and hit up their wifi.

5:21 PM  
Blogger Comm'r of Flesh Wounds said...

Lattimore didn't say Stephen Davis encouraged him to pick SC. Just told him to go with his heart. Sounded like he was pushing Auburn, though subtly, and not taking advantage of the confidence the kid placed in him.

5:21 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

Then when you get home, complain about all the errands you did and ask if you can do some 'crootin' research.

5:21 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

Someone describe the hat gimmick.

5:22 PM  
Blogger Brother Jet said...

Harrison ... assert your husbandly authority as referenced in the Good Book.

5:22 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Right. Davis did not encourage Lattimore to choose USC.

5:22 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

I just meant I would have had a problem with Stephen Davis participating in the gimmick if it were between AU and UAT.

5:23 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

wtc,

What do you know about a lineman named Kouandjio?

Apparently he just committed to UA.

5:23 PM  
Blogger Dear Leader said...

take a 3 pound rabbit and a 10 inch hat..
put the rabbit in the hat before the show

when on stage pull rabbit from hat..

that is the hat tick

5:23 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

seanzie - he pulled out an AU hat within which he had tucked a USCe hat

5:24 PM  
Blogger Dear Leader said...

I think it is kinda funny when people get mad about this stuff... when you think about it, everyone we play did not choose Auburn...

5:26 PM  
Blogger Comm'r of Flesh Wounds said...

So, is he saying that Chiz wouldn't do the cha-cha slide? Or that Spurrier did it better? I knew dancing would be an issue; in fact, I screamed it on the tarmac when he arrived!!! Don't believe me? Check the archives and GET SOME!!!

5:26 PM  
Blogger Jimmy said...

FSJ-
if that is true then Shon Coleman is not going to the Tide

5:27 PM  
Blogger Comm'r of Flesh Wounds said...

I think Davis should have thrown a tantrum, called the kid a liar, and stormed outta there mutterin' "$&*@#$% looser cocks"

That'd be AUSOME!!!!

5:28 PM  
Blogger eaglesteeler said...

Go pens!! I'm going up in April to see family and see the Pens play.

Are people mad in Pyongyang, DL? I think everybody's okay here.

I don't know about anyone else, but i threw a fist pump when i saw that auburn hat and quickly pulled out my "Obamanu just dropped the ball" face

5:30 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

FSJ - looks like y'all got a good one from Hyattsville, MD. Scout shows offers from lots of big schools, plus the likes of New Mexico and Alabama ;-)

New Mexico?!?!?! Where did that come from?

5:31 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Speaking of Mexico! Hi Ron! Where ya been?

yes they are wery rangry...

So Mark McLemore has chosen SC. I figure after 15 years in MLB that he wouldn't be wanting to play college football.

5:33 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Did they think he was going to pull out a UDRK hat?

5:34 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

New thread UPZ.

Blogger AuFan91 said...

Kouandjio is a 4 star OL from Maryland...looks to be pretty big...just not too sure on how athletic....but hopefully this means Coleman is a lock for Auburn?
