I had just finished reading about this on the Auburn website. I've never gone, but we may this year.

No Knoxville trip, which surprised me.

I've never been to one either... what goes on at these gatherings?

7:53 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

is that the entire Tiger Trek? If so, the odds are not in my favor.

7:53 PM  
Blogger scottie b schwarzenegger said...

Nice work cincy. That's the closest I've gotten to number one on my iPod!

7:54 PM  
Blogger scottie b schwarzenegger said...

I know. Bummer.

7:56 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

maybe he's scared he'll get sent to Carolina Tiger Rescue if he wanders up here.

7:58 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

No south Florida substance. They could've doubled it as a recruiting visit to St. Thomas Aquinas, too.

8:00 PM  
Blogger Miller said...

I thought I saw Tampa on the list?

8:03 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

What!? No DC visit?

8:07 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Tim Floyd to replace Tony Barbee. Interesting.

8:13 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

There's a 6'7", 260# OL who runs the 100-m for his HS track team? That's a BIG sprinter (though not so big OL).

8:21 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

His 4.9 40 says he either isn't winning any track meets, or his top speed is massive after a slow start.

8:23 PM  
Blogger Miller said...

blogger having disappearing post night again?

8:30 PM  
Blogger michael said...

The main thing you look for in a lineman is top speed.

8:47 PM  
Blogger scottie b schwarzenegger said...

So true.

8:52 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I'd like this clock at work to show some top speed.

8:53 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

Nova, I love the P90X so far. I just started my 2nd week today. I was doing it at night but found it hard to commit 1 hr after work and around time with my FAUWG. So I decided to try the morning thing. I really liked it and felt good all day. I've also heard that morning workouts are the best because you reap the benefits all day. To make a long answer short. Its going to take a major commitment (1 hr a day 6 days a week for 90 days) but I think it will be fun and worth the effort.

8:56 PM

wth is up with my posts disappearing?

Mobile, in the house, awesome, I will drag my 8 month pregnant wife to the event so Chizik can see a future Tiger on board...:)Cant wait...

So, is this like Tiger Prowl, except they bring a Vulcan along? Yea, a clever idea by giving a name to it I suppose.

My running partner does the P90X. He is really into it. Dropped 25 lbs within 2 months. doesn't hurt that we run 30 miles a week either. I didn't think he could drop that much. You can tell from my avatar that I am not doing P90X. He asked me to, but I haven't got time to devote the hour.

9:29 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

Cncy-My running partner owns the Stanely Steemer franchise in Huntsville. i will ask him what apartments he sees that are nice and in your range.

9:29 PM  
Blogger Miller said...

wtc... you're obviously seeing posts that I'm not seeing...

cincy, did your son get the job in Huntsville? I am from Arab, and my wife went to UAH... we might can offer some insight to the area if you have questions.

9:34 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

WTH Man United?!

9:34 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

Thanks, wtc. I think we are going to ride up on Saturday to look around. It would be great to have some names of places to check out.

9:39 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

JayG-I am with you on the scholly changes for the bball team. I am not looking to win the west next season, but I am looking for a good product to be put on the floor.
I think Barbee has taken a page from the trooper, grimes and thigpen.

Blogger Hoopie said...

We got the Tiger Trek invite for the ATL meeting in the mail today. Should be able to attend.

We sometimes do the Rome, Ga. AU alum yearly meeting(small group) and haven't done ATL in years. Should be fun and see some folks from back in the day.

9:39 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

I guess this is similar to our Crimson Caravan.

I'll be going next month to see Saban. Hopefully there will be some recruits there that I can help "recruit"......

I kid. I kid.

9:44 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

Bring your wallet & debit card, FSJ.

9:50 PM  
Blogger Jet With The Kiss! said...

They've got his card number. He's on the direct deduction program with the Gadsden REC.

9:53 PM

can I go home now?

9:55 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

Sure THT go ahead.

9:58 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

As my fifth grade teacher would tell me when I asked to go to the bathroom:

I don't know, THT, can you?

9:59 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

Woo Hoo! Just made our plane and hotel reservations for Colorado Springs. Going for the Air Force Academy graduation the end of May. We are going to spend a couple of extra days in Denver and take in a Rockies game. I love baseball! My son is trying to convince us to go to the indoor sky diving facility. That is the closest I will ever come to jumping out of a plane! Haven't agreed to that yet.

10:35 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Thanks, wakerider. I did as you instructed.

Cincy - who's graduating?

10:38 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

Our best friends from Cincinnati's son. He and my son have been friends since they were 9 years old. These are friends who are like family to us.

I'm not sure that first sentence is grammatically correct, but I am too tired to figure it out.

10:45 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

How about "The son of our best friends from Cincinnati"

Sounds like a fun trip. My dad & I visited the AFA in 1975 on a trip out west.

10:57 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

when I chatted with 2.0 at midnight her time, she said she should get some sleep because the sun would be up around 5:30. I asked why she had to get up so early.

"Burnin daylight"

That's my daughter!!!!

11:01 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

Thank you THT. That sounds much better.

So glad 2.0 is having a good time. That is the way I am on vacation. I don't want to miss anything and I want to do as much as possible.

Well, off to bed. See you hotties in the am.

11:09 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

When I'm on vacation I like to have a good time.

Having a good time and getting up at before 9 are mutually exclusive.

11:11 PM  
Blogger wellsAU said...

Cincy, my roommate is in AFROTC and his father is a Colonel in the AF. He's currently stationed at Pope and went home the last few days of Spring Break. While they were there, my roommate and his girlfriend did the indoor skydiving thing. They said it was awesome.

11:16 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

2.0 is up!

11:20 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

but apparently no one else is.

Are you gonna pull those pistols or whistle Dixie?

Blogger NoVaTiger said...

Thanks for the input on the P90X. An hour isn't that much more than I'm putting in already and I think I could benefit from a more structured program.

Morning workouts are great. They get you up and ready to go for the day.

4:41 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

NoVa got the jump on me this morning. For the rest of the Hotties.....

Rise and shine, Hotties!!!!

It's just past Low Noon in Tromso and it's a beautiful sunny day.

5:14 AM  
Blogger CH=B said...

Good morning all. I think you are correct Nova. This was my 2nd morning workout and I feel pretty good. I also didn't crash yesterday afternoon as I always do. I love the structure of the workouts. You can also make the easier or harder depending on what you want out of it. It is very challenging though. If I had not already been working out some I don't think I could do it. There are still some disk that I have to take breaks. Like the PLyometrics (this morning's workout).

6:31 AM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

Good morning, Hotties! I am off to do the elliptical. I do it, but I hate exercising. I started back exercising this week after being off for a few weeks, and I swear I have gained two pounds!!!

THT, OJW is hubbby's favorite movie. I have seen it like a gazillion times. He can quote every line. In fact, in both of our children's high school graduations and in our daughter's wedding, he managed to work in the phrase "endeavor to persevere"!

I actually lived at "No Hope Pope" for 3 years......AF in an army town in the middle of nowhere but actually loved it.

That was when NC State won their National Championship and it was a blast. But gave up on NFL during that time because of the strike.

To attend or not to attend Tiger Trek. That is the question.

eddie, i can't even believe you'd lob up a softball like that. just do it.

2.0 is the upgraded version of THT himself (ie, his daughter). he's studying abroad. it's very cool & we're all extremely jealous.

New thread UPZ.

9:50 AM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

Finebaum has his weekly column out that claims Beat Writers have fallen in prestige/substance and are now just media lap dogs for the schools. PF contradicts himself later in the column by using the Meyer incident as an example to make his point, then mentions that Meyer later apologized to the reporter ....which negates the argument PF is a shock jock that lives off creating controversy and I place no value on his opinion, but this does raise a few thoughts.

According to most accounts, the schools limit media access more now than in the past. This is probably due to the 24 hour media cycle, internet and the fact that the media as a whole is much more apt to emphasize/exaggerate the negative just to create a story than in the past. Beat writers in the past focused on players, formations, opponents, fundamentals, etc. Nowadays, a fight at practice or a DUI will get headline reporting. Sometimes social engineering-inspired comments are mixed in an article and disguised as "reporting".

I still see that there are well-respected beat writers like JGT out there. Maybe not as many as in the past, but still enough to fill the demand. The problem for the beat writers is that the public demand is changing. A growing number of sports fans nowadays are more concerned with the gossip of sports, than the substance of sports.


JG, thanks for what you do. Your newspaper reporting is always devoid of gossip-unnecessary opinion. Your tactful restraint, humor and control on this blog has set a great example and made this an enjoyable place for opinion to be expressed.
