Your Friday Thread

Hey everyone. I am in Kentucky handling some family business, which means my ability to blog is essentially zero.

I'm on dial-up. Forgive the blog's rough appearance.

I'll soon begin writing a story for Sunday about the Tigers' 2010 signing class. Should I deem it an overall success? Yeah, probably.

For the guy who emailed and ripped me for covering the "negative" news associated Marcus Lattimore, let me break some news: The sun doesn't shine every day. Look out the window.

Feel free to comment about whatever strikes your fancy.

Have a nice day.

JG's keeping the interwebs confused.

They can't figger out whether he's a homer or a hater.

Some folks can't handle objective observations and reporting.

JGT

I gotta know, are the guys from supersport 930 as they seem when they do the segment? Also you have got to campfire with Ben Ingram when the Braves go through Montgomery, since he such a 'legend' at on the vent.

I get a kick out of those segments.

I know you've said this before Jay, but what part of Kentucky is "home".

Hoopie, I'm still hanging on to my belief that JGT is little by little becoming a homer. How can you NOT love Auburn?

We may have to give up and believe him.

Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

Wake, I agree! As long as Jay G has been around Auburn athletics, how can he NOT have acquired a love for it?

He does an EXCELLENT job of being objective. I don't understand the criticism. Well, I guess I should - it comes from bammers.

The only negative I see is Stephen Davis being involved in the show.

Luv -- I'll just post the email.

Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Great title to article (sarcasm)….Auburn has best recruiting class in 25 years and you hit the negative. Fine job.

With biased media coverage in Alabama always trying to create perception, Auburn always has the much higher “hill to climb” than UA on the national scale.

Although you’re fairly objective with AU, many times you come across negatively; as if you would prefer not being AU’s beat writer.

Just an observation.

9:35 AM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

RK , I suspect you've been real busy because you haven't had the time for that cynicism we love.

No worries tho' PF is taking up the slack.

9:35 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Why does it always have to be us vs them for some Auburn fans?

There was no need to even drop the evil name in the email to Jay G.

That stuff drives me crazy.

9:36 AM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Certainly not the most aggressive email ever -- or even in the top 20% -- but to rip me after I just wrote 135 column inches about Auburn in one day seems odd.

9:36 AM  
Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

WTH????? What a jerk. I can't speak for all the Hotties, but I don't get where that person is coming from at all. You are sportswriter. You cover sports news. Lattimore's story was news.

I'm glad I don't fly anymore. Air travel ceased being glamourous in the late 90's.

9:38 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Hoopie,

You and Aero seemed to be the only ones it got to, maybe you were just more sensitive to my "cynicism" during football season?

It's not Haiti, it's just college football.

Blogger stupup74 said...

Kentucky basketball fan is almost as bad as Bammer football guy.

I got one at my church and is a deacon with me He wears his UK stuff and calls every ticky tack thing in pickup games. On top of that, after every game he preaches about how he never fouls, but get hacked all day, all the while I have bruises from hacks I didn't call from him.

I was like "dude, John Wall is not your teammate and coach Cal is not calling your for rules help, shut up.

Not everything from Kentucky is all that great.

Business travel got old after my first business trip. It keeps getting older. It sounds neat and occasionally you get to see a bit of the area you travel to, but most of the time you spend the entire time working or spending quality time with other employees. It is stressful.

Flying probably safer than driving a toyota.

Ah, my old Kentucky home.... I lived in Paducah for several years.

One of two places I've lived that I would move back to in an instant (Auburn being the other)

9:44 AM

I haven't flown in about a year and a half. Before that, I usually traveled to Oregon about 5 or 6 times a year for about 10 days per trip. It got extremely old.

9:44 AM  
Blogger weagle251 said...

At least the email wasn't of the "OMGWTF CUT US SUM SLACK BAMMAR HOMER!!!11" variety.

Best thing about Jay is that he's been on the Auburn beat all these years, and I have yet to detect a trace of bitterness in his columns or his articles. That hasn't always been the case for his Mobile brethren.

9:46 AM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

I hate flying. I am tall with bad knees and can't afford first class. Sitting in those tiny seats is pretty painful. I always seem to fly last minute so I can't get exit row seats.

I love driving. I had alot of great trips between here and Auburn.

9:46 AM

I'd rather have Jay G write the way he does than have some of the homeriffic stuff I've seen in articles out of B-ham.

9:47 AM  
Blogger stupup74 said...

I used to travel at least twice a month or more.

I have the fortune of having a job where I got to see fun things. I have been to 16 or 17 ballparks, etc. Those types of trips are still fun, but since I got married it got old.

It is hard to juggle travel and home stuff.

Take it from a converted Bammer. They hate it when AU folks ignore them. Therefore ignore them except to ridicule and hate them. It's insulting to even compare AU to them. Never compare.

Fans like the guy in that email that worry about the perception of "climbing hills" just feed the Bammer's demented psyche.

When we just worry about us ..we are better than them.

JGT, I'm glad to hear that you are enjoying your job. I would imagine that means there is far less negative energy flowing around the AU Athletics Dept (and especially the football offices) than in recent years. While I'm sure it made for good newsgathering opportunities, I don't know if I could deal with that kind of bad vibe day in and day out.

Get some, my friend. You've earned it!

I heard the Crap Cecil Hurt spwed out about trying to compare CGC to Saban not (his) first year but Saban now to CGC's first year and it was pathetic! That's like appels to oranges...

I have a Stat for you and this is FACTS:
Saban 4-4 in the SEC his first year
Chizik- 3-5 in the SEC his first year....WOW what a big difference!!!!!

I just wish they would stop trying to say Alabama's Beat Writers are not Homers but Auburn's are...PLEZZZZZZZ!!

I think we should rename Jay "Hater Tater" or has someone already done that? I still can't figure out how that was negative reporting. I feel like I get great, very unbiased reporting from Jay. Guess everyone has to have something to complain about.

Just a quick check in before we head out to the Grand Hotel. I don't think we have internet capabilities out there (without having to pay for it anyway) so I am probably out of touch for a couple of days.

Good Friday Morning Hotties! My busy week accumulated so many extra hours that I got to take today off. Unfortunately I missed the Signing Day excitement. Happy to see Auburn do so well.

I was looking at next year's schedule trying to decide which away games to attend. I'm thinking Kentucky might be a nice trip. JGT do you have any recommendations for hotels to reserve? Also think a trip to Ole Miss might be in order too.

I don't have any problem with JG's coverage. I humorously questioned JG for saying that he is interviewing coaches that played against Newton. It was a joke that didn't go very well. I apologized, he didn't care. BFD.

I moved on, he moved on. Yours are still in a wad.

In fact yours are in a wad for being criticized for hurling BS accusations. Would you move on, unwad them sometime soon and quit with your BS?

Thank you.

Jay G Tate work, at it's best, is some times drudgery but I always believed it was made better by doing something you enjoyed. I enjoyed my many different jobs in Engineering. It would be really sad to be stuck in a job you really didn't like. I have met some people of that nature. Many wouldn't be happy doing any kind of work and were very sad people.

I watched some of that ustream last night with Mario, Cam Newton, Stevens, Isom, TZac, Zac, Savage, et al. Seems like Newton has made some friends on the team. They were playing Madden. It's amazing what can be done in this computer era.

Get mowed down repeatedly or b. witness Lattimore catch 20 passes out of the backfield for minimal yardage.

Hotel I'd want

The Radisson Suites on Richmond Road.

If you're approaching Commonwealth Stadium, you want to approach via Alumni Dr. That means you want hotels on Richmond Rd., which is easily accessible from Alumni.

That's your travel tip for today!

(p.s. The Holiday Express on Virginia Ave. is good, too.)

Howdy all! JGT said we could comment on whatever we want.

I just flew in from Orlando (70) to Baltimore (35) this morning. 20-28 inches of snow expected thru Saturday.

I hope my wife realizes how much I love her....my flight was cancelled today and could have been stuck until Tuesday SWA said.

I nominate Wake for top of the page quote with:
That probably a good thing Jay G, you might have picked a poor profession if you didn't like writing.

For front page, I nominate 11:09 post

THT, I think your prediction is off a little. We had that many last year.

Would anyone like to designate an official "HABOTN" tail-gate spot for A-Day? If anyone is familiar with the parking lot beside the business building there are several grassy areas where tents can be set up for A-Day. We did it last year and it was very easy to get in and out of.

Comment Deleted does come in with some clutch material from time to time.

last year we had the excitement of a brand new coach.

Et Tu, ehyou

Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

yep, that was me. Firefox had a bit of GE Reflux. I tried to wipe it up so other Hottie posts wouldn't get it all over themselves.

Luv,
Yes, the writer of that article is very bammeresque. I was fuming when I read that Wednesday. My wife learned more about recruiting than she ever cared to know during my rant.

The Times Daily/Decatur Daily (same beat writers) are not known for objective coverage of AU & UAT. Here was their Bama headline from the same issue: Allen’s letter notably missing.

Arguably a much bigger loss for Bama (especially since, unlike Lattimore he was actually committed) but not nearly the negativity of "Auburn loses crown jewel"

12:42 PM

I'm sure there will be an official Hottie-Ho® map in circulation prior to the game.

12:45 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

Buried drifters on said map to be denoted by a scarlet M.

12:48 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

I nominate Hoopie's lawn for the next campfire....special guests will include me and jhag .

Wait, am I a punk?

12:50 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

I don't know if it has ever been mentioned on this blog, but internet explorer sucks.

12:52 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

IE=preferred browser for walmartians

12:53 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

Wake - Google Chrome.

12:53 PM  
Blogger Coffee Cup said...

Tar Heel,
Thanks for cleaning up your own mess. As the old saying goes, "ya mama don't work here no mo"

C.C.

12:57 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

Don't worry Norm I'm a chromer, however I am trying to access one of those lazy sites that has the market cornered, so they only make it accessible from one poorly equipped browser.

1:00 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

Since Chrome has never been discussed here, all of you should try it.

1:00 PM  
Blogger scottie 'colt' powers said...

Chrome is the Chiz of web browsers.

1:02 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

chrome?

1:03 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

tht, let me explain...

1:04 PM  
Blogger scottie 'colt' powers said...

campfire at Hoopie's? sweet.

1:04 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

who first mentioned Google Chrome here?

1:04 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

we've discussed favorite AU games, bbq joints, doughnut shops, web browsers, 'cruitin', and fiftyeleven other topics. What's next?

1:04 PM  
Blogger scottie 'colt' powers said...

prolly u PF. i've been using it for a year at least.

1:05 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I'm sure it must have been me, PF. I only bring smart ideas to HABOTN.

1:05 PM  
Blogger scottie 'colt' powers said...

THT, since you brought it up, what's your take on Taylor Swift's VMA & Grammy performances?

i jest.

1:06 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

I've been using it since it came out as well. It was love at fist click.

1:06 PM  
Blogger SCoats said...

Wake,
There is now an extension that allows you to view IE only pages in Chrome. Kind of like the feature on Firefox. It open the page in an IE based tab.

1:07 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

Is there any truth to the Chris Todd to Texas Tech rumors. I heard he will be there starting QB next year.

1:07 PM

I don't know, ask Steve from Lubbock.

1:15 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

scoats, how do you get that extension? I just got chrome earlier this week and love it, but I noticed that some sites don't display correctly and here at work I can't use for our personalized web stuffs.

1:15 PM  
Blogger IV said...

Yes PF, you and jhag are punks.

1:15 PM  
Blogger IV said...

And you can't come in my yard either.

1:16 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

Also with IE would allow your anti-virus to scan each site and tell if it was safe. Does chrome have that feature?

1:17 PM  
Blogger IV said...

I jest PF. Next campfire in IV's yard.

1:17 PM  
Blogger Coffee Cup said...

Wake,
No to the rumors of Cris Todd to TT, but i did hear they got a long-snapper to commit!

1:18 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

I think Tubbs signed 3 long snappers. You really can't have too many.

1:20 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

They're all here.

Chrome Extensions

Hope no one needs the federal government. The snow has started and we're all home cocooning.

Hmm... maybe that's a good thing.

1:26 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I've always wanted less federal gov't, NoVa.

1:27 PM

Thanks ehyou

Paging Norm....

1:31 PM

you think we could get the walmartians to add a pacifier to the statue of their leader?

1:41 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

Here I'm is...

1:41 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

do you need just a little nudge?

1:43 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

i think this is going to be a slow motion flip, good for teaching purposes.

1:44 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

Sort of like Single-A Baseball perhaps?

1:45 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

even those with special needs should be able to learn from this one.

1:46 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

So it'd be perfect for someone like Jet.

1:47 PM  
Blogger AU1N04 said...

20-30+ of snow expected.
