Norm, the only issue I had with Adam West was that he was a bit portly for a superhero. His acting skills were unmatched though (as Michael pointed out in the previous thread with the Shark repellant line), so I think he was able to rise above his physical limitations.

Jet Notes ...

1. I finally decided to pull for Espana because of those memories from high school when Norm insisted on wearing lederhosen every day.

2. It was still a difficult choice because it meant that Col. Klink and Sgt. Schultz would be sent to the Russian Front.

3. But those jack@$$es Gen. Burkhalter and Maj. Hochstetter can freeze their butts off for all I care.

4. I remember when the TG&Y opened in Montgomery. Burt Ward, aka Robin, was there to sign autographs. I thought he was quite creepy. History proved me correct.

1:20 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

That SS Maj. Hochstetter was truly a despicable character.

1:27 PM

A cursory glance at Burt Ward's wikipedia page reveals nothing creepy... did you have a personal experience with him that you would like to share, Jet?

Nothing personal, Michael, but Burt Ward's autobiography certainly made him out to be a creeper.

Of course, he could pull the Charles Barkley stunt and say he was misquoted in his autobiography.

Blogger SteveFC said...

I don't understand Hood's departure, although I doubt he would have been a starter. He did play a lot last season as the nickle DB and on the kicking teams.

Our secondary isn't that deep, but there are options this year. A guy named Trovon Reid is suppose to be able to play multiple positions and many of the other WRs could make the switch if needed.

Hood leaving isn't a killer for the defense, but I do wonder why.

hey chip, was it the prunes or the corn?

7:18 PM

My guess is 9-3, but I am assuming the offense will be as good as last season and the defense will be much improved. Also, I am assuming punt returns have to get better.

7:19 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

THT, a dominating tackle on defense is something we need badly. Simms and Marks were good, but we have been irratic there in recent years.

7:20 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

11-1 with loss to LSU or Arky? I don't think that's unreasonable if the bounces go our way.

However comma I can't imagine either of those teams going undefeated or with only 1 loss in conference. I think your projection would put us safely in SECCG.

7:20 PM  
Blogger chip chip said...

if AU can put a wac offense on the field that can consistently score in the 30-40s, lack of defensive depth should not be an issue.

they key is going to be keeping the pedal to the metal on offense. AU had ut sucking wind midway through the 2nd last year and then went into a slump and they recovered to make a game of it. this team should own the 4th if they maintain the pace.

we all know there is nothing more demoralizing to a defense than to have the qb scramble for a 1st after you have fought to get them in a 3rd & 7+ situation and covered all the wrs. AU has that capability this year for the first time since 04.

7:24 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

This season I consider 8 wins the criteria for a successful season. Anything less would be disappointing.

As for the Bleacher Report, it is good reading as long as you don't confuse it with reality. B/R is still a few notches up the food chain for al.com forums.

nincompoopness aside, 9-3 or 10-2 is my realistic expectation.

7:28 PM  
Blogger chip chip said...

it also usually makes your d much better when you play from ahead. giving up 14+ point leads has been AU's m.o. the last few years, but that was because someone would dump a bucket of cold water (aka the wildcat) on the offense when it caught fire. i'm looking in gus' direction on that one... having a qb capable of gaining positive yards with his feet when all else fails is going to be a humongonormous shot in the arm for the AU o.

7:31 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Bama has a much tougher schedule this season since they play Penn State and Florida during the regular season.

For the last couple of seasons I have considered the SEC West a bit down. Both LSU and Auburn have had issues. Auburn should be improved and if LSU isn't, I wonder who the new head coach would be?

Arkansas and Ole Miss could both end up being decent, too.

MSU is the first team I think has a shot to upset us. Mullen nearly upset LSU last season and simply spanked Ole Nutt.

What I hope to see is Auburn start the season clicking on offense, like we did last season. Under Tuberville, it usually took a few games before the offense really got rolling.

Kiffikin getting Kiffiscrewed at USC.

Is Nutt a bust at Ole Nutt?

Is there any school in the country more screwed than Missouri? Is it possible to be more screwed than Missouri?

How will Iowa Rhoads do?

How many losses would it take to get a Dooley strung up on Rocky Top?

I think DD will do well at UT. Even though he's first year coach, they may improve a bit on last year's 7-5.

10-2 and the Iron Bowl decides who goes to the SECCG.


Also, I'm the life of parties that I never even attended.

I think UT only wins 4-5 games. They are seriously hurting in the talent department right now.

UT supposedly had a very good recruiting class under Kiffikin. I know they had to have lost some from this last class, but they should be competitive. A 7-5 season seems reasonable to me, but a lot of it has to do with how good South Carolina and Kentucky turn out being.

Blogger CH=B=Nidiots said...

They did have a good class but they lost some players to graduation and attrition. I really don't expect them to be very good this year. That is no reflection on DD's ability to coach.

Yea, Brice Brown leaving didn't help. I do think the UT fans will give him a bit of time. They got kiffiscrewed so quick they have to be looking for some kind of stability.

With Clempson, South Carolina, Arkansas, LSU, and Georgia all coming to JHS; it does seem like our schedule is working for us this year. Auburn's schedule always looks better on even number years.

Seeing Papelbon pitch in the 7th just seems weird.

Anything over 8 wins will make me happy. Barring anything crazy I think 10 games is a good goal.

But who saw us doing what we did in 04 before the season?

since IB came to campus, Ath. Dept. has decided that they can have as weak a schedule as they want in IB years and still sell season tix, but need strong home schedule in non-IB years to keep sales up.

Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I knew we were going to beat UT in '72, and I knew beyond any shadow of a doubt we would win IB in '72(even when it was 0-16 in 4th qtr). Beyond that, I know zero.

Where is WTC? I need to know what his mom is hearing about recruiting.

Does anyone know if Cothron ever made it to school?

Iran has apparently banned Alabama fans from their country. How discriminatory.

Steve, they can get away with it if they wear a turban.

Althought their cover will be blown by the fact that the turban is houndstooth.

I was at the '72 IB. My wifey worked summers with Greg Gant. He became the butt end of Punt Bammer Punt

And Braves take 2 out of 3 in Philly.

Plus, Spain versus the Netherlands in the World Cup Final on Sunday.

Good times all around.

Sometimes I find the comments on Newton positively Kodirific. The question mark isn't if he can run the ball. The question is can he pass the ball and direct the offense well enough. There are probably a dozen players on the team that could run the ball as well or better.

9:34 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

Yep, thats great to see also as far as the Braves go.

The World Cup isn't over yet? I thought Ghana won the championship match against the U.S.

Now, the guys at the Bleacher Report just came up with some interesting analysis by comparing the weights of defenses. After an in depth review of the data, I conclude that it is a bunch of crap. It would be easy to have the heaviest defense in the SEC, and thus the best. Just what are these guys thinking?

E-Bro plays WC spoiler. I was going to watch the DVR when I got home tonight. Thanks a lot! ;-)

I've had enough of this cesspool. I'm going home.

a bunch of crap would definitely skew the bleacher report data.

in the spirit of hate, i must give iranian president ahmedinejad props.

the death penalty to the infidels!!!! (aka: mullets, cousin-humpers, dentally-challenged, wal-martians, meth cookers...)

even a broken clock is right twice a day so i guess even he can get something right every now and then.

i assume hockey is also now banned in iran?

if he bans unitards, that means no more iranian hair metal bands either.

THT,
It's more like drop and give me 50, now give me 50 more! I may not be the fastest, strongest one in boot camp, but I am kicking booty!

Norm,
Sorry you aren't feeling well. How is your eye? Mine is still driving me crazy, but nothing compared to yours. Hope you feel better before the weekend!

Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Norm, I blame UA-T.

Would you feel better if the earth opened up and swallowed that despicable town in west Vance? Yes, you would. See, it is UA-T's fault that you're feeling poorly today.

7:31 AM  
Blogger Norm said...

We can blame them, certainly. I always do. All of my troubles stem from them, not a former President. I've been battling a particularly nasty sinus infection for over a week. You can imagine the particulars associated. Last night/this morning I woke up around 3a with a splitting headache and never was able to get back to sleep.

Keep Hate Alive! I know I will.

Blogger Dr. Habotn said...

Rx for Norm:

The usual adult dose is 1 Augmentin 500 mg tablet every 12 hours... For more severe infections and infections of the respiratory tract, the dose should be 1 Augmentin 875 mg tablet every 12 hours or 1 Augmentin 500 mg tablet every 8 hours.

That's what Dr. Habotn, Team Physician, takes for his sinus infections.

Norm?

I've been taking 875mg Augmentin every 12 hours along with the Sudafed they keep behind the pharmacy counter for almost a week now. Not much improvement.
