Auburn's All-2000s team announced

Hey everyone. Auburn has revealed the players for whom you allegedly voted as the program's best from 2000-09. I'm confounded by this sentence from the Tigers' release: " ... after nearly 10,000 Auburn fans voted on AuburnTigers.com during the month of April."

April isn't even half over yet.

Either way, here's the team:
Offense
QB—Jason Campbell
RB—Ronnie Brown
RB—Carnell Willliams
WR—Ben Obomanu
WR—Courtney Taylor
OT—Marcus McNeill
OG—Ben Grubbs
C—Danny Lindsey
OG—Monreko Crittenden
OT—Kendall Simmons
TE—Cooper Wallace

Defense

DE—Quentin Groves
DT—DeMarco McNeil
DT—Sen’Derrick Marks
DE—Antonio Coleman
LB—Karlos Dansby
LB—Dontarrious Thomas
LB—Travis Williams
CB—Carlos Rogers
CB—Jerraud Powers
S—Junior Rosegreen
S—Will Herring

Special Teams
PK—John Vaughn
P—Kody Bliss
RS—Tristan Davis

My thoughts:
**I'd take Darvin Adams, even basing it solely on his 09 season, over Obomanu. I'd also take Devin Aromashodu over Obomanu.

**I like Danny Lindsey a lot on a personal level, but I'd take Ryan Pugh over him at center.

**I'd probably take Tyronne Green over Monreko at guard.

**Hard times at safety, which includes a cornerback who converted for one season (Rosegreen) and a miscast linebacker (Herring). Why is it that Auburn never has any above-average safeties? I talked with a former NFL coordinator about this last week. He's just as confused.

Almost, that jenke internet in DPRK is holding you back, DL.

Jeremy Ingle deserves some love at C. Kid played his tail off in 2004 ... even when he could barely walk.

3:34 PM  
Blogger michael said...

The reason the safeties are often subpar: probably partly because Auburn makes safeties into linebackers and corners into safeties in the name of speed (Herring the exception).

3:37 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

I wish I knew why Obamanu is on this list.

3:37 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Obomanu = Aromashodu in 40 time, size, complicatedness of name, and production. Hard to say either one was much ahead of the other.

3:38 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

I might have picked David Irons over Powers.

3:39 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Ben and Devin were even both drafted in the same round!

In Ben's defense, I think he could have been "the man" with last year's offense. But you can't argue with Darvin's production.

3:40 PM  
Blogger michael said...

I got Robert Johnson over Cooper Wallace also.

3:40 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

Or Walt McFadden.

3:40 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

I just dont' recall anything HUGE that Powers ever did.

3:42 PM  
Blogger michael said...

The best corners don't always do huge things. QBs avoid them.

Powers did make a good play against alabama in the end zone that one year.

3:46 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

Granted, but I'll always remember him getting beat by that LSU dude at the buzzer.

wow, you are an idiot.

3:50 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

Thanks, I think.

3:53 PM  
Blogger weagle251 said...

Obomanu's endzone drop in the '03 Ole Miss game alone should keep him off this list.

3:54 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

I'd probably take Ratliff over Demarco. Maybe TJ as well.

3:54 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Obamanu's facing the press afterwards may be enough to put him on it.

3:55 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Ha! Seanzie the Idiot!

It's definitely not the first time. It surely won't be the last.

the montgomery matador has no business on the list. he single handedly cost campbell two years of confidence by not being able to lay a finger on freeney at syracuse. granted, freeney is now giving pro-bowl OTs fits, but i bet some other OLs during the 2000s would have put up more of a challenge.

Whenever I say something you say:
ketchup and liquor

What did you have for breakfast?
ketchup and liquor

What did you have for lunch?
ketchup and liquor

What did you have for dinner?
ketchup and liquor

What do you do when you see a woman?
ketchup and liquor (catch up and lick her)

4:08 PM  
Blogger michael said...

And there it is. The internets provided the old ketchup and liquor joke. It still holds up a little bit.

Hey, remember that joke where you would say, "If your hand is bigger than your face, then you have cancer"? The other kid would say, "Nuh uh!", but naturally put their hand up to their face just to see if it was bigger or not, and then you hit their hand which made them hit their nose.

Well. when I was dating my future wife, I made the statement, "You know, like that old 'If your hand is bigger than your face, you have cancer' joke." She had apparently not heard of that joke, said "Wha?" and put her hand on her nose. Without thinking, I hit her hand. It was a natural reaction. Not too hard or anything. But she was just like "Ouch! Why?! I don't understand."

And she still married me.

4:14 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

Nice, Michael.

some women aren't that smart. my wife is still with me after almost 9 years. i can barely stand me. i don't know how she does it.

4:16 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

You know that old joke where you get drunk and pee in the floor. Well, I did that in my wife's floor before we were married and she still married me. I think she may be slightly handicapped mentally

4:19 PM

my wife and i met at work while still in college. i put a post-it that read: "laugh at the monkey" on her back an let her wear it around the store for a good while before she discovered why folks were laughing at her when she walked by.

MrsTHT takes the cake. Almost 29 years with me for reasons I can't explain and which confound LGG Byron and 2.0.

Thankfully, I don't really like cake. I'm an ice cream guy.

Jeremy Ingle was a DL at my school in the Gump.

But he deserves the love at center as Jay G suggests.

4:23 PM

All these stories confirm that the dude Hotties are awesome.

It's a picture of Phil Mickelson driving thru the Krispi Kreme in Augusta yesterday morning on the way out of town; wearing the jacket no less.

4:27 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

never?

over 40 years later, Buddy McClinton still holds Auburn's career INT record, and he accomplished that in just 3 seasons. I'd say that's above average. He was also an Academic All-American. That's waayyyy above average.

4:28 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

sounds like Hottie dudes' wives are the awesome ones. Of course, that's a given since they married Auburn Men.

4:31 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Not so fast, THT. I am not sure all the dudes here have been through the Auburn Man Initiation Ceremony. We shouldn't even be talking about it!

4:33 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

AMIC is certainly an event in my life I'll never forget. Remind me again, what is it?

4:40 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Oh come on, THT. The Hood of Honesty you had to wear. The Shug Scepter of Work Hard Work wielded by the Grand Plainsman. The drinking of Vitameatavegamin. Reciting Bo Jackson poetry. You know, the AMIC!

At mine there was also a creepy guy who claimed to represent human touch but was arrested shortly afterward.

4:47 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Seanzie, Your avatar is more Jet than Seanzie. I look at it and get confused because the substance of your posts aren't very Jet-esque.

4:53 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I think they've refined AMIC since I went through that rite of passage so many years ago. We had the Hood of Heisman, the Bong of Braun, and Hare's Gray Hare chase. The latter had to do with Cliff's pet rabbit, not his pilary head cover.

4:55 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

PF - well what do you expect? Seanzie is an idiot. I read it on a blog somewhere, so it must be true.

4:56 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

I turned the bed she was sleeping in black with Jager vomit, but never hit my wife in the nose. You're a jerk Michael.

4:57 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

substance...isn't

I feel better. And I'm sure Omnica does, too.

4:58 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

THT, what on earth does that mean?

5:00 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

Eeeewwww Jager vomit

5:04 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

That is one impressive group of players, and yes, the safety position has been our weakest.

5:12 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Oooh, THT said the "O" word.

5:13 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

i dunno. It was just instinctive. I'm sure someone will figure it out.

5:23 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

I'm pretty sure I brought the most interesting man in the world here first, Jet has used it from time to time.

I'm still wondering why that kurt dude called me an idiot.

5:29 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

actually, Seanzie, he called "you" an idiot. We really have no idea to whom he was referring. Your post just happened to be the one right before his. But what if it took him 11 minutes to type "wow, you are an idiot", in which case he could have been referring to... oh wait, never mind.

5:34 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

And since PF is confused and doesn't like use his reading skillz----->

I personally like this one better.

5:37 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Keep my reading skillz out of this.

5:45 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

That is pretty much the same list I voted for except I had Robert Johnson at TE, Jeremy Ingle at C & I might have had Pat Sims at DT over Demarco.

You're right, PF. There is nothing funny about illiteracy.

Blogger cincytiger said...

Not sure exactly what I stumbled into, but sounds like y'all have been having a good time - punching wives in the nose, ketchup and liquor, black throw up in your wife's bed, the AMIC, did I miss anything? :)

6:08 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

One other change I'd go with is T-Rob over Will Herring. Probably the smartest safety we've had in the past ten years at any rate.

He wasn't big time next level, but he could ball once they settled him at that position.

6:08 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Cincy - that pretty much sums it up in one post. I guess we can go back now and erase all those other posts now.

6:10 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Now I wonder how many more times I should try to put "now" in a sentence... beginning right now?

6:11 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

Off to play Bunko - keep it fun!

Blogger digger4au said...

AMIC has certainly changed since my day
Catching panties at raids before they hit the ground
Sleeping (or Past out) on the beach all night and waking up with skeeter bites all over your body
Servivng a night in Phenix City without getting killed or put in jail
Learning to say Shug Jerdon and not JOrdan.
