Sullivan, the basketball player, is out

Hey everyone. Guard Frankie Sullivan underwent knee surgery today in Birmingham to repair a torn ligament.

No timetable has been given for his return.

The success was deemed a "success," though I don't even know what that means given the context. Mack McGadney had "successful" surgery in 2000 and you know how that ended.

Not saying Sullivan is finished like McGadney was. I'm just saying: There's no way to know.

Sullivan was supposed to be the de facto star of Tony Barbee's first Auburn team. Looks like that plan has changed. It'll be a long year in Auburn Arena.

Ouch.

It's going to be a long time before we get a .500 record on our home court after this 1st season.

Maybe now they will release the schedule.

I just got done watching some You Tube videos of Auburn football. I was going to get on here all excited and then this. Thanks for ruining my night you stupid knee.

7:55 PM  
Blogger CH=B=Nidiots said...

THT, that makes me a little happier.

There is still time for Sullivan to make it back. You would think he could be back by SEC play.

7:56 PM  
Blogger CH=B=Nidiots said...

Never compare Sullivan to Mac. Mac was the most frustrating basketball player in Auburn history. So what he scored 30 points....it took him 50 shots (15 fade away threes) to get there.

7:57 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

Depending on the surgery, probably 6-10 weeks until he can start rehab. He might make it back by January if he makes it back at all.

FOOTBALL

Anybody beside me think the agent party story in Miami has gotten a little quiet?

I would have thought by now we would at least have heard which agent threw the party, a pretty full list of attendees, and questions asked as to whether the players paid their own expenses to attend? I'm not an expert, but can't you meet with an agent as long as you don't accept anything of value or sign a contract? Not sure if the peeled shrimp on the buffet would count as something of value or not.

Braves lose 3 of their last 4. Not good. Especially blowing a golden opportunity in missing Strausburg.

The Braves only get 5 hits and strike out 10 times, you'd think they were going against Strasberg and not a middle reliever who was starting on 5 mins notice.

Like I said in the earlier thread, this Braves team is starting to look like the team that lost 9 in a row earlier in the year.

Prado has dropped 20 points on his average in the past 2 weeks.

Glaus has 4 RBI all month.

Wow, a lot going on here today. Rundown of my thoughts, Jetarsky style:

1. I'm all for retroactively claiming a national title if the AP or BCS awards it, but the FWAA, no thanks.

2. FSJ...claiming 1918, 1983, 1993, or 2004 will never compare to Alabama's thirteen simply because of 1948. That'd be like us claiming a national title for going 9-3 in 2005.

3. Soccer...what's hard to understand? You try to stick the ball in the opponents' net using 10 outfield players while having a goalkeeper protecting your net. And you can't use your hands. Easy peasy.

4. Frankie Sullivan...that sucks. Talk about a gut wrenching loss to a team. Hopefully he's back for league play.

Uzomah is being asked to play slot receiver and wildcat by AU. LSU is asking him tp play QB. He wants to play QB, but REALLY likes AU. His HS coach says he can be a great WR. HS coach is going ot line him up at WR more this coming year to showcase his talent.

In the last two days, Chris Low has ranked our DB's and LB's as fourth in the SEC in unit rankings. He did rank our D-line pretty low, but looking at that, he must think our defense will be at least halfway decent this year.

I guess I do too. Certainly think we'll be better and should have some better depth, but I won't be sold on all our returning DB's from injury (Zac, Aaron, Mike) until they make it through fall camp and get some games under their belts.

On a side note, the aforementioned throne in my student digs was of a brand that I have never encountered, before or since: an Eject-O. Logically, on such occasions that we were in need of its primary function, we would euphemistically state, "Time to go jack the Eject-O."

I do enjoy the very odd and random additions we have here.

I always loved Grandma's house with the nice crocheted toilet seat cover. Within 4-5 seconds of lifting the seat, it was guaranteed to fall back down to its original position, which proved to be a somewhat disastrous event on more than one occasion, especially after riding in a car for 4 hours with no stops in between and there was an urgency in your dash to the bathroom due to the Coca cola you drank 3 hours prior and yes this is a run-on sentence, but in the grand scheme of things does it really matter?

Baldy, I remember my grandmother having one of those lid covers and I remember the issues that it caused.

Glad I could sparks some good toilet talk.

I think Dr. Bitter provides some great material. How bout a combined forum with Dr. Bitter?

while smart and beautiful, girls like alexis frighten me. sorry hon, but we are doing wendy's & and adam sandler movie on the first date. if she can stick with me after that, she has a chance. i will gladly observe her doing yoga in a 105+ degree room.

if the place we go to dinner cannot serve meat or meat by products of some sort, i'm not interested. i finally convinced my wife to date me after inviting her over for steak. i knew i had a winner pretty quick.

First, I have to admit to watching the toilet video. Now, did anyone else who watched it notice that the person doing the filming was a female (painted toenails)? How many females would be interested in vintage toilets?

Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Yep, chip chip...I don't think Alexis would have appreciated the meatloaf sandwiches I brought for lunch today. Still, I thought it was cool that she is an AU alum.

Can you say very high maintenance? Fresh out of college I'm sure she can still double fist some beer and yell War Eagle with the best of them.


Like bitter's roster breakdown. I am pumped about Ford being at 240. I think he is going to be a beast and could be the breakout player on D that we are all looking for.

Nice find Chip. That looks like ours, alright.

Another fond recollection, along the same topic: when my Brit-born roommate acquired a girlfriend, one of the first things she did was introduce one of those deadly crocheted lid covers, with the same delayed slamming effect described above by Baldy.

Shortly thereafter, a male friend of ours came by for a few beers. We failed to inform him of the new booby-trapped Eject-O. Conversation ceased as we awaited the predictable event. . .sure enough, after the required 4-5 second delay we heard a loud SLAM followed by a bloodcurdling scream.

We held our laughter best we could when our friend limped out, but lost it when he glared at us and declared, "YOUR TOILET IS NOT USER-FRIENDLY!!!"

Good times. . .

same thoughts on ford ch=b.

i found it even stranger on the antique toilet vid that there were so many comments from other toilet aficionados. i've never been so glad to admit AU football is my obsession as i am today.

Blogger Fearless Freep said...

I'm with you chip. Other than the old Eject-O, the only time I've ever paid any attention to such a device has been when it failed to operate within design specifications.

I looked at the roster link from Bitter and noticed that Mack is listed at 361, Phillips is 291 and J. Evans has bulked up to 230.

Assuming that these are accurate numbers (and the numbers on the recruting sites are/were also accurate), methinks that only Evans packed on what one might call "good" weight since last football season.

adair, please be more specific. Did you mean Gilbert O, Pat, or Joe?

If you meant Gilbert O, I'm afraid you're along again, naturally.

Of course, if you meant Joe, you won't exactly be in a big crowd, either.
