Big Cat Weekend rides again

Hey everyone. Auburn will reprise its Big Cat Weekend extravaganza in May.

What is Big Cat Weekend? Surely you jest.

It's only a glitzy enterprise that involves a slew of top recruits making mass unofficial visits. Auburn created the event in 2009, which led to some strikes and gutters.

Strikes: Several of those attendees signed with Auburn.

Gutterballs: Several coaches committed secondary violations during BCW.

I am here at the Athletic Complex. I will be talking with people about this situation within the hour. As always, I'll pass along what they say.

Have a nice day.

fast as Speed Reed, but without the turnover

those would be spares, JGT, not gutterballs ;-)

Let's dance

I didn't post this earlier because I was anticipating some FRESH substancio, but it's been delayed.

I had to run it.

It's all good bro

Says something like you and me babe, how about it

3:36 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Mr Tate - ask if the public is invited ;-)

is it kosher for them to actually announce BCW?

3:36 PM

Romeo & Juliet Dire Straits

The dice was loaded from the start ...

y'all are good!

that's my 2nd favorite DS song. The first being Skateaway.

3:40 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I like Tunnel of Love and Money..

3:40 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

Brothers in Arms is epic.

3:41 PM  
Blogger weagle251 said...

Is it possible for "Return to Big Cat Weekend" to recapture the magic? I wonder.

In a completely unrelated note, if you've ever listened to a small child tell a story, then you owe it to yourself to read Axe Cop

3:42 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

I like "Down By The Waterline" and "Telegraph Road", among others.

3:43 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

"Brothers In Arms", too.

3:44 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

Let's face it, they're all good.

3:44 PM

"I can't wait
to secondarily violate"

one of my favorite jetisms ever

3:45 PM  
Blogger Sen. Jet Jetarsky said...

Skateaway is tops.

3:45 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I once replayed Romeo & Juliet for almost an entire flight from London. I'm guessing at least 60 times. I still like the song.

3:46 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Oops, "Down to the Waterline", not "by".

3:46 PM  
Blogger Sen. Jet Jetarsky said...

Jay G plays the movies all night long.

I think Romeo & Juliet took on a whole new meaning when the Indigo Girls did it.

3:48 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I love the guitar sound effect at the end of
"I swear she let a big truck grease her hip"

3:49 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

From what I understand, we signed nearly half of the players that showed up for Big Cat Weekend last year, so this is a very big deal.

3:50 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

weagle...
Indigo Girls? Really? I'm going to pretend I didn't read that and I still don't know.

3:54 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Beginning to think that I'm wastin time
don't understand the things I do.
The world outside looks so unkind....

(as we continue a trip through iTunes)

3:57 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

So, should we ground Trooper now, or wait until after BCW?

3:57 PM  
Blogger weagle251 said...

I just remember hearing it on a local station years ago and thinking, "Damn, this song just became about a bulldyke that lost a lipstick to an old boyfriend." Harsh!

3:58 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

You can't ground Trooper, he's recruiting TNT!

3:59 PM  
Blogger weagle251 said...

I say we let Trooper manage himself, Steve. Surely he's learned from his mistakes.

4:01 PM  
Blogger Sen. Jet Jetarsky said...

If the SEC and the NCAA don't tell us we can't do it again after this year, then we will have not done it well enough.

4:03 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

As long a there isn't an announcement at Toomer's and no public then we will be fine.

"All right stop collaborate and listen
Ice is back with my brand new invention
Something grabs a hold of me tightly
Flow like a harpoon daily and nightly
Will it ever stop yo I don't know
Turn off the lights and I'll glow
To the extreme I rock a mic like a vandal
Light up a stage and wax a chump like a candle
Dance go rush to the speaker that booms
I'm killing your brain like a poisonous mushroom
Deadly when I play a dope melody
Anything less than the best is a felony
Love it or leave it you better gain weight
You better hit bull's eye the kid don't play
If there was a problem yo I'll solve it
Check out the hook while my DJ revolves it

4:06 PM

Under Pressure

4:08 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Just remember, we had a top five recruiting class with one Trooper in time out. This year should be even more interesting.

New video of Auburn Arena:

Rats. I have to work the Friday night of BCW and I won't be able to get there for it. :-(

4:11 PM  
Blogger Sen. Jet Jetarsky said...

Just like in hockey, you gotta spend a little time in the penalty box.

4:12 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

ok, we're still cruising through iTunes. Y'all can ask Cincy for help on this one...


Light that came from everywhere drove shadows from the room.

4:13 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

I read where 10 current players (who have yet to enrol) want to be a part of it again.

4:14 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Good call, weagle.

4:14 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Dolly Parton?

4:16 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

The best explanation ever was when Vanilla Ice tried to explain that his track had a slight "symbol" change from under pressure.

4:16 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Um, Vanilla Ice? Man, we need to hire a music consultant for HABOTN.

4:17 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

SteveFC - nice. Dolly did a cover. My iTunes is the original by Don Francisco.

4:19 PM  
Blogger weagle251 said...

THT @ 3:57,

Is that Dobie Gray? Smooth!

4:19 PM  
Blogger weagle251 said...

That Vanilla Ice interview clip is classic, CH=B

4:20 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

"Ninja Rap" is easily one of the best songs ever, featured in one of the greatest films of all time, "Ninga Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze".

4:21 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

Could someone please give me the lyrics to Ice, Ice, Baby?
What's that?
Oh, nevermind.

4:21 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

yes, Weagle. I have a re-recorded version that is absolutely fantastic.

4:22 PM  
Blogger Sen. Jet Jetarsky said...

I'm thinking the authorities at AU ought pipe in the Motor City Madman's "Cat Scratch Fever" during pregame.

4:22 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

New thread UPZ.

4:23 PM  
Blogger Sensi the Sidewalker said...

Will it include violations again?

Yippee!
