Frazier was next to Brandon Moseley. BMoseley is @ 6'5". Frazier was eyeball to eyeball with him. He has to go about 230lbs also.

CHB-long but funny story tied to the sofa thing. Jet likes to remind me of it often. I bought a sofa for my daughter last year to go in her apartment at AU, for $50. Wife gave it to a guy to upholster and fix it up. He brought it back with a tab of $850.00. I told him to take it back, he could have it. He wouldn't take it. My daughter has it in her apartment now.

9:31 PM

Taylor ..congrats. Sounds like you two are on the same spiritual page and that is a great start.

AU Baseball ...18 runs and a complete game shutout!!! WOOT!!!

WTC ..I also got suckered into a re-upholster cost scam years ago. Don't let Jet bust you too much, cause it happens more often than most realize. Oh yeah ..let me guess ..the wife and daughter loved it soooooo much that they had to have it and you lost all ability to negotiate with the dude.

My parents had the two most comfortable chairs in the entire world. Since they were so comfortable they decided to get them reupholstered instead of buying new ones, and paid a fortune to have it done.

I don't who Tennessee's baseball coach is, but I'm gonna guess his name is Freak N. Moron.

Trent Mummey hit 2 homers yesterday and drove in 7. Today, he hit a 2-run homer in the first. So with two out, runner on 2nd in the 4th inning, if I were the UT coach, I think I'd be making he didn't do anymore damage -- even if it meant facing Jenkins.

They pitched to Mummey. Another two-run HR ... 7-1 Auburn after 4.

Nothin the rest of the way, AU wins 9-2.

Currently in sole possession of first in the West. Regardless of Arkansas' finish, we break the tie with them, but if Ole Miss loses we'll be alone out front.

JJ is looking brilliant right now. If he was a publicly traded stock, I would've bought at the end of last football season, but now it looks like 3rd Quarter revenues are about to hit the roof and keep shooting upwards.

There can't possibly be any true Auburn fan who isn't thrilled about potential near future. Including Michael. Even Jet is excited.

So one of Jacobs's hires a football coach who recruits well and has one season that would'e been considered okay,but mediocre a couple of years ago, a basketball coach who hasn't coached a game, and Paws, and suddenly the people who were asking for his head are proclaiming him a god.

I've never asked for JJ's head because I'm too ignorant to know if he stinks or if he's the best AD in the conference, or perhaps somewhere in between. The Tar Heel in me would have hired Lebo, too. I'm glad we have Barbee now.

I am pleased with the current state of affairs.

Football related topic for the day:

What about our secondary? I didn't think our pass defense was very good to begin with last year (and part of the issue was the LB's as well as the DB's), but what about this year.

McFadden is gone. Neiko still looks like he's SEC calibre, but it's time to come of age. Our Freshman All-SEC FS is now playing LB. Demond will move back to corner, but otherwise we're counting on three formerly severely injured guys (Etheridge, Saivage, and McNeil) and some other unproven ones to step up.

Looking at our defense, this potentially looks like the weakest unit, or potentially the strongest of the guys are healthy and playing 100% to their capabilities.

Yeah, up around your old stomping grounds, RK. Woman next to me had her grandaughter graduate from Rhea County High School on Friday.

The defense as a whole still worries me as well, but while the depth of the front seven still troubles me, the secondary just troubles me, period. I feel like it's a lot to expect the injured guys to just fit seamlessly back into the rotation. Maybe they feel really good about the younger guys.

Scottie,

If we average 45 points per game, I won't worry much about our D.

I'm just looking for a much improved offense vs the SEC. Last year we lit up the non-conference teams, but struggled in SEC games at times especially after the defenses adjusted around the middle of the 2nd quarter.

8:54 AM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

Jet is right about pulling in the same direction. Once xCTT was gone and the deal was done, the anti-PTB folks starting cautiously joining in.

The 2 primary issues with JJ were: the perception that he was a puppet and inexperience.

The Colonial collapse has hastened the "joining in" b/c while there may still be some leftover PTB influence, the power(money) is greatly diminished/diluted and reduced the chance for puppetry (apologies to Michael). Has anyone noticed that AU hasn't collapsed without Lowder's money? That's because folks that were previously on the sidelines are stepping in.

While all of this has been going on, JJ has been gathering experience. Heck, he even hired Barbee without using a search firm.

I will admit I was one of the fans that came down hard on Jacobs after his hire of Chizik and wanted him fired.

I had no issues with him, but rather, I just wondered how much power he actually wielded.

But if someone wants to lump me in as a hypocrite, so be it. It's human nature question things. And yes, it's a bit early to say "we're back", but the upward trend is no less pleasing.

I love how quick people were to come down hard on Jacobs but are now so reluctant to actually come out say this guy is doing a great job. A lesson learned or merely human nature?

Sean...don't know if that comment is intended for me, but if you search through official HABOTN records, I think you'll find I didn't come down hard on Jacobs.

And reason is the only thing keeping me from saying he's doing a great job. He certainly seems to be thus far and I'm as excited as anybody about the direction of Auburn athletics.

Muchas gracias, ehyou.

Knowing that Spring City is not surrounded by much but endless countryside, I imagine the place was in dire need of a few cell phone towers.

E-Bro, it wasn't for you. I was speaking in generalities. Referring more to my idiot friends who threw themselves into the abyss sometime around the end of 2008.

I'll admit, I've been critical of Jacobs over the years. I've called him a figurehead. He may still be, however from an outsiders view he seems to have the department in good shape for the future, so I'll gladly admit I might have been wrong about his qualifications. Time will tell.

Right now things are looking up.

it jj can maintain and build on the current momentum and keep the coaches if they win big, bigger and biggest, he will go down as the one of the great ad's in AU history. if he lets them get away, goat. until chizco proved what it is capable of and barbee as already done more than lebo did in six years, jj looked like a clown. i have enough rubber noses and rainbow wigs for everyone who doubted...you get used to wearing them.

Chip's 9:34am post caused a "coffee through the nose" moment. Now ..where's that napkin?

Ebro, RK ...seems we're about where most other AU fans are regarding JJ.

Puppetry issues aside, the displeasure over the JJ and Chizik hires were similar in that the AU fans wanted a proven commodity.

Compare to what we've been through, it's nice to be cautiously optimistic.

Seanzie ...seems that you are either being called an idiot or accusing your friends of being idiots. It's good to see that your self-esteem is solid and you can handle all sides of that. Now ..if you can only learn how to keep out of Jet's Tool shed.

Chip^2,

No word on Mummey's hr count for Monday morning....has anyoneever missed so many games and immediately and consistently returned to being such a huge force on a team before? Kid missed half the season, and never missed a beat in the field or at the plate. He's amazing.

10:08 AM

I hope everyone is pulling for Hunter Morris to average a ding dong per game to end the season and break AU's single season HR record (22). He sits at 19.

Appropriate use of "ding dong"?

I'm definitely gettin' old and enjoy consistency in my life. I've tried many different cigars, scotch, beers and women ...and for years always cherished something new. I'm happy to say that I've found the best one of each for me and care not to deviate. Without further adieu:

Don Diego cigars

Had a great time at the Braves game yesterday...fantastic weather, Hudson pitching, Bravos bats on fire...what's not to like? I mean, besides the beer prices.

Speaking of beer:

Frame, Naked Pig Pale Ale is quite good, but you have to like a very hoppy brew.

Hoopie, you need to expand your beer horizons.

Harrison, I bought a few good beers at Green's while in ATL. When I remember the name of the best one, I'll post it.

SC ..I agree that the beers are boring, but I basically don't like all those new beers with the heavy Hops. I just gave away a 12 pack of Sam Adams that someone left in the man fridge.

PF ..considering my history, boring is now a good thing. Buchanans (blended) or Glenmorangie(single malt) have been nice diversions in the past. Cuban cigars are generally too robust. Partagas or Romeo y Julietta would be the fav Cuban. Cohibas ...over-rated.

Ping eye2s? ....Yup! Square grooves for a square guy ...and since I don't play tourneys, I got no problem with that.
