Auburn's new ride?

Hey everyone. PeterFrankenschmidt has created obtained an exclusive photo illustration of what Auburn football may be planning for its next Tiger Prowl.

This is assuming the NCAA and/or the SEC doesn't outlaw these barnstorming operations.

Some believe this photo could be inauthentic. I'm a little skeptical myself.

I swear PF was trying to create a tiger eye beside the AU logo ... then ditched the idea.

wait, is PF art really of substance? hhhmmm....

Homer, I think you're right about PF being a quitter on the eye attempt.

Wow. Is crappy artwork better than the front page quote?

I thought the pic was hysterical!

PF, crappy and genius are really not that far apart. Just make it strange enough that nobody understands it, and you will be considered a genius because you do.

Trooper did say last night that he might use a helicopter next year! Do you think he saw your masterpiece? Does that mean he read the HABOTN?!

If I had known I'd be immortalized, I would've taken .24 seconds more to draw white lines on the grass to represent a HS football field. Just goes to show you, kids, always give your all.

PF...what do you think about a tank? Or a hovercraft?

12:00 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Tanks are too slow. The coaches have a limited amount of time. Now, Barbee in a tank running over Saban's statue while the Tiger Prowl distracts everyone is genius.

Hovercrafts will work when Pawlowski starts recruiting in Cuba. Chiz could borrow it for the occasional landing in American Samoa when a five star lineman pops up every few years.

I don't think either are suited for Official Tiger Prowl vehicles, though, just peripherals...like the limos are now.

Oakland is going to release JaMarcus Russell?

I know he's been bust-ish (and not in a Dolly Parton way) ... but is he totally devoid of value?

Welcome MiniWEG....don't I know you?!!
Also I was disappointed that Barbee was not there...that's who I wanted to see.

at his current salary he is JG. bust!

I think the hovercraft would work along the Gulf of Mexico. Say Trooper is in Tampa but needs to get to Mobile or Pensacola...Boom. Hovercraft!

How does the kid not sign with Auburn after that?

Since I like Jim Carrey, I'm going to start saying "BOING" occasionally as a show of respect.

His Twitter feed is bizarre.

And is Campbell that much better than Russell?

Blogger scottie b schwarzenegger said...

the Raiders are on the hook for $9.45 million for JaMarcus Russell for 2010 and $3 million is guaranteed. espn says they had to cut him before a mini-camp starts on friday b/c if he gets hurt the Raiders have to pay the entire thing. my guess is that if some other team picks him up they're responsible for the remainder of that contract.

is that right?

WEG, YES! JC has a head on his shoulders.

JM has been identified as a guy who doesn't work very hard. at only 24 years old someone will give JM a chance, but it's not a good way to start out a career since he's already being put alongside Ryan Leaf as one of the NFL's all-time busts.

Jason has two productive seasons (08, 09) to his credit.

Russell has one-half of one (08).

I'm not sure that makes Jason a whole lot better, but at least you know he can be adequate.

Blogger mytommyd said...

WEG I believe Campbell and Russell have about the same understanding of the Raiders offense. So he has that going for him.

12:22 PM  
Blogger scottie b schwarzenegger said...

JC has produced better numbers in each of his NFL seasons despite being behind a crappy offensive line in Washington. i think he has a great chance to make it in LA. a lot of experts were applauding the Raiders' work in the draft & trades last week fwiw.

My boss is a Raiders fan. Here's a story floating around abour Russell that he often notes.

One day after practice, the Raiders coach gave him a tape and told him to watch and study it that night before the next day's practice.

Well, they purposefully gave him a blank tape. The next day, Russell came to practice and told them he had watched it. Probably not a true story, but wouldn't surprise me all if it happened.

Needless to say, my boss was pretty pleased to have picked up JCam.

Russell has great physical tools, but makes terrible decisions. In a close game he could be counted on to throw the INT. Campbell is much more consistent and controlled.

12:27 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

Of course Jason is better that JaMarcus. I mean who puts a Ja in front of a perfectly good 1st name like Marcus? No really though Jason has skills. He just needs some consistency in OC's. He's had like 6-7 OC's since high school. I would be confused too.


I hope the pilot of that there heli isn't the same person who painted it.

12:31 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

Hoopie, Russell also doesn't work very hard and kind of has a bad attitude. I've never heard Jason complain once about all that he has been through.

According to Low, Mullen @ MSU is copying the Tiger Prowl:

On Monday, Mullen embarked on a five-day, 12-stop “Road Dawgs” tour of the state and surrounding areas. Traveling on a state-of-the-art motor home, he’s speaking to Mississippi State booster groups and visiting with fans in all corners of the state from Batesville, to Kosciusko, to Biloxi.

Guys, guys, you're missing the obvious 'next step' in the process. It won't be the 'Tiger Prowl' next year.

http://www.odditycentral.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/06/eagle_helicopter.jpg

It'll be the "War Eagle Flight" in a tripped out Hind-D.

Because nothing says "War Eagle" like an armored tank-killing machine.
