Season is almost here and Peaches you are thought of often.  You would be proud of how far your Huskers have come.  Just wanted you to know you are not forgotten.  You put up a big fight and gave encouragement to so many.

Here's to our beloved Peaches.   ::monkeywine2::

GO BIG RED and love, Frijole

Sasn - Thanks for the thread change! And thanks for including Peaches! I still can't think of her without a few tears. She touched my life in a profound way, and I will never forget her.

She would definitely be happy that the Huskers are back in the hunt!


cuz - I think Arky should be ranked. Good luck to your team this season...except that one game against AU. The Hawgs scare me.....because they have owned AU lately ::piggy:: ::MonkeyEek::


texasmom - Thanks for the video! It's just perfect! Hope you'll hang around with us this year!



Kiwi...Are you laying in supplies? Rudi the cheerleading AU dog likes his treats, and I'm hoping we score a lot. Make sure we have a big bag of doggie goodies! He performs after each TD! ::MonkeyCheer4:: ::MonkeyHaHa::

God Bless Peaches!My prayers go out to all our Monkey squads, that the injury bug stays away.One of our highley touted freshman running backs(Deontae Cooper) tore his ACL... ::MonkeyMad::..He enrolled early in the spring time to get a head start, and looked great in spring and it carried over into Fall ball.

Here's Deontae's youtube from Citrus Hill High School.

To you Husker fans.Not sure if the news/rumors are making it your way in regards to our former TE Kavario Middleton transferring to Nebraska.Would be a nice pick up for Nebraska.Unfortunate that he couldn't keep things together at UW.If he cleans up is act,which I think Pellini will be great for that,He has the ability to be a first round NFL pick.While at Washington he was a TE with great hands,but wasn't much for blocking sotospeak!Most UW fans would like to see Kavario succeed at Nebrask, "If" that's where he lands.Not a bad kid.Just making some wrong decisions and with a change of scenery i think he'll mature a bit.Sometimes you need to get away from home,and those friends that don't have your best intersts!Scroll down the page a bit and you'll see a paragraph dedicated to it,as well as Condotta referencing his facebook saying he's going to Nebraska.

KTF - yep he is coming to NU.  Just read about it.. a total surprise.  We have another player with the same last name so perhaps related.. not sure.  His high school coach said he needed to get away from "home" and the bad influences he had in high school.  If anyone has a no tolerance for drugs policy it is Bo.  He kicked our starting running back off the team last year for using pot.  Zero tolerance.  I just read Bo met with him and read him the rules and the kid is on a very short lease.  Hope he takes advantage of getting a 2nd chance.  If anyone can straighten him out its Bo!

I don't believe there is a Husky fan that doesn't want to see Kavario succeed.From what I understand he truly is a great kid,caught up with some bad influences and,getting away should do the trick.I have spoken to his father a couple times after games,as I leave where the players tend to come out by the Legends center and they are GREAT people!I'm proud that Nebraska has embraced him and look forward to a native Washintonian return the blessings that he has been given.I do mean return the blessings on the field,as well as OFF the field.I trust that you'll keep me posted Frijole! ::MonkeyAngel::

On another note we just got a verbal commit from an instate kid who had offers from EVERY college in the country and the final two were TEXAS & WASHINGTON.He decided to stay home!You'll be hearing his name soon.....Austin Seferian-Jenkins  6-7/255/4.68 fourty...#3 TIGHT-END in the COUNTRY!Had offers from everybody in the country,and i do mean everybody.This just shows you what Coach Sark is doing up here in Seattle!!Maybe Peaches gave us one back for getting Middleton! ::MonkeyAngel::

From today's Lincoln paper... he is quoted:

http://www.huskerextra.com/articles/2010/08/17/football/doc4c69fdead4ace491581489.txt

His position coach, Ron Brown is one HELL of a coach and person.  He worked for Tom Osborne for decades.  He is very intense and very religious.  The young men LOVE him.  He couldn't be in better hands.  Hopefully he wants to change.  I laughed when he said Bo had him on a short leash.  So you know Bo was straight up with him.  Will keep you posted KTF. 

Ironically our only player that didn't make it from this year's recruits was a TE that failed academically... so we were lucky also.  Weird that you just landed a TE... Yep... Peaches... ::MonkeyAngel::

Thanks for the article Frijole!Now let's pray that Peaches brings us two teams that are undefeated come Sept 18th.That'll be a BIG time game nationally for both programs.So glad to see we've renewed the rivalry from years ago.It's a good one! ::MonkeyDance::

KTF - Thought you'd like this.  He was interviewed by a radio station here.  Link to audio.  Haven't figured out if related but we have a player named Lazzari Middleton and he's from Long Beach CA. 



Audio: Kavario Middleton on his decision to attend Nebraska
-Sounds like a nice young man who is grateful for a second chance....

--Bo was no-nonsense with him and told him what would it take to play at Nebraska.....

--Walk-on to earn a scholarship in Jan. 2011 if he meets all of the requirements Bo put down for him.....he is okay with walking-on.....will be in Lincoln late this week...

--Talked to alot of schools...(I've read Miami & Tennessee among others were interested in him)....

--Excited and ready to play at Nebraska....

--He believes Nebraska will have a huge challenge against Washington in Seattle....said Coach Sark is changing the culture in Seattle....

--Did not bad mouth Washington at all....(that says a lot to me)

The US News annual rankings of Universities was just released. During all this "Conference re-alignment" hub-bub this past spring/summer, Oklahoma State was always ridiculed for being "unranked - tier 3" in our rankings (last year). Our new ranking is #132 - Tier1 !! We are getting there slowly but surely. Much credit goes to our school President who has emabarked on a $1 billion foundation fund raising campaign. We have raised over $600 million in under a year's time!

Here's the link to see how your schools are matching up!!

Our Athletic Director (Mike Holder) is our former golf coach (12 National Championships) and a die-hard desciple of Boone Pickens. Much to the chagrin of many of our alums, he believes if we going to compete with the Oklahoma's and Texas' programs, we have to step up and pay the piper. He put his money where his mouth is and PERSONALLY donated $10 millon himself to his Alma Mater. Not only does he pick one game each year with a sky high ticket price -- he also doesn't sell single game tickets to these individual games -- you must buy season tickets! There are some OU alums that will buy our season tickets just to attend the "Bedlam" matchup! We have beautiful new facilities -- it is hard to bitch!

Thanks Frijole.Nice to see he's starting off on the right foot.It's all water under the bridge now and Kavario needs to keep his nose to the grindstone and he'll do BIG things in Lincoln and beyond.Maybe a phone call fru Suh might help as well! ::MonkeyCool:: He's a class act!

Here's an article where Kavarios high school coach backs the decision of Sarkisian.He also states that Sarkisian gave him every opportunity to succeed.Sometimes it's as simple as a change of scenery and I think all involved think it will be a life changer for Kavario!

Done deal: BYU to go independent in football

http://**/sltrib/cougars/50131959-88/byu-football-television-conference.html.csp

Was BYU scared of Boise St or,concerned with UTAH joining the PAC12?I think at this juncture it's not a very good move for BYU to go independent.I think it's a double edge sword.They say the're going to play 4 WAC teams which probably won't bring much of an audience,and they're going to have to schedule some BIG time programs potentially hurting their W/L record.It's an interesting dichotomy with the whole religion thing.Is a BIG time conference willing to bring them into the fold?Didn't seem like the Pac12 wanted them.Discuss!

When the Pac 10 was looking to go to 15 it was real obvious that BYU was not a 'fit' just like TX A&M isn't.  They also are geographically challenged like NU was.  They aren't a fit for the Big 12 either and they are too far away from any other BCS conference.  And yes religion is a part of that difference.  I'm not sure going it alone makes sense but I guarantee you someone in the Mormon church crunched some numbers and figured out they'd make more money with their own network and thus the decision.  Plus they get out of the non BCS conference discussion PROVIDED THAT they schedule some games that are with ranked teams.

That said... BYU is not Notre Dame.

It all boils down to BYU's refusal to play ANY games on Sunday. Not such a big deal for football, but deal breaker for sports like baseball.

BYU also gets a NCAA waiver for athletes that go on "missions". Their athletes can go off on missions for 3 or more years and return not having lost eligibility. Many of their athletes can be 27 or more more years old!

I still think that is the reason the power conferences don't want BYU. The WAC should be wetting themselves for BYU to join them. I think they would let BYU pretty much do as ever they please!

We lost 3 players for the season in less than a week.  Two to broken legs and one tore an ACL.  Luckily we are deep at each of those positions but you just ache for the kids.

OL kid was in his last year... he could get a medical year but he probably will move on as he graduated
LB kid was in best shape ever -
CB this kid tore his ACL 2 yrs ago and had an AWFUL rehab that took 1 1/2 yrs.  And he had another ACL tear.  Talented kid that was finally due to play some.  Like I said... you just feel so badly.

As you've probably read - Bo doesn't comment much on these things.  I did read that the two that broke legs were just freak accidents.  One with 3 minutes left in practice.

That said - we'll be fine.  Just hope its over.

::MonkeyHaHa:: ::MonkeyWink:: I should have read the article first! So, they are actually joining the WAC in all other sports but football. If I were them, I would just join the WAC in football as well - but DEMAND they would be allowed to have their own TV network (like the Big 12 allows).

This article with our game at BYU gives you some insight as to the TV for our game with them.If I'm correct,I believe the MWC controls this game not BYU.Although neither team is top tweny,one would think they could find a better channel then CBS's ugly cousin fester CBS college sports!Thank God I'll be there,cause the commentators for these 3rd tier slots SUCK!


"The game will be on CBS College Sports. Not CBS, but CBS College Sports, a network that is an offshoot of CBS."

I really want to thank San for keeping Peaches watching over this thread for all of us.  ::MonkeyKiss:: God bless our Peaches as well as her loving husband and daughter.

KTF, we had one game broadcast over that CBS College Sports and I agree, their commentators are awful.

Too much work and too little time to keep up with all the teams but will say I do think some very deserving teams are getting NCAA scrutiny due to their coaches !! Go get 'em !

I had to post this, it arrived from son on my cell phone at 5am this morning - he's doing well and enjoying his new coaching role but he has some real talent in his wr's but also some real "tude" to contend with. This photo is of "the hill" where punishment is meted out daily for those who can't do it right. If can see, that tiny white spot on the left is a big recruit who broke a team rule the day prior. Son's text with the message Good *&^% morning, do 20 on the hill"

That said I can tell he really cares about them too, he's hands on during practice, teaching them and as he says to be perfectionists? I wish him luck, won't be easy !

Thanks KTF and Frijole, I appreciate the support for son as he finds his way. I think he's in a trial by fire at times but as evidenced by all we see regarding players and behaviors in the media, I think it touches every program to some regard. So good to learn how to manage this sooner than later, right?

Oregon St. player dismissed after arrest

CORVALLIS, Ore. -- An Oregon State University offensive lineman has been dismissed from the team after police say they found him naked and intoxicated in a stranger's home and had to use stun guns to take him into custody.

Pac-10 blog
 ESPN.com's Ted Miller writes about all things Pac-10 in his conference blog.

• Blog network:
College Football Nation


Corvallis police say they received the call about a naked intruder early Sunday.

Responding officers ordered 19-year-old Tyler Patrick Thomas of Kalispell, Mont., to get on the ground, Lt. Tim Brewer said.

Thomas refused and instead dropped into a three-point stance like a football player and lunged at the officers, Brewer said. At that point, he said, two officers fired their stun guns.

Brewer said Thomas "absolutely was intoxicated" at the time.

Thomas was arrested on suspicion of criminal trespass, criminal mischief and resisting arrest. He was booked into the Benton County jail and later released.

A home phone listing for Thomas couldn't be found.

Oregon State coach Mike Riley dismissed Thomas from the team Monday, OSU athletics spokesman Steve Fenk said. Thomas redshirted during the Beavers' 2009 season.

Bo just loves dealing with the media as you no doubt know.  So when asked about starters you can imagine how patient and open he is in sharing information.  ::MonkeyDevil::

Here's today's "news":
He had no meaningful update on the quarterback situation. Asked if there was a chance Nebraska could rotate quarterbacks this season, he said, "There's a chance we could play 10 guys. Anything can happen."  ::MonkeyHaHa::

He said we'll find out the starting quarterback on Sept. 4 -- the day of Nebraska's opener against Western Kentucky.

"I'm not answering any quarterback questions," he said.

Based on Bo's comments, I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for a release of an official depth chart.

"Guys who trot out there for the first play are the starters. Until then, it's a competition to see who steps up," he said.

For Kiwi and anyone else traveling to the Emerald City!If you have any questions about a restaurant Kiwi,I will give you my opinion if I've eaten there!

None.Would it have been potentially called Etta's,and or the Athenian Inn?

Those would be the closest I would guess in regards to potentially where None ate.I may be wrong but,with Tom Douglas you're pretty sure to get great food and ambiance.His restaurant "Dahlia lounge" was in the movie Sleepless in Seattle but it has since moved!Enough Culinary info.... ::MonkeyAngel::

PDH many prayers have gone out today  ::MonkeyKiss::

KTF - Etta's sounds familiar but we had a big team that night, around 10 from Manila too and I can't say I have good recall regarding much of it. I've always enjoyed Seattle and yes, the locals are always welcoming too.

Kiwi - I searched my email but unfortunately I could not find your email addy, do you still have mine? If so, if you could bounce me one I'll respond. I should do better housekeeping with my personal email.

Well looks like LSU is going to have a guaranteed win for their season opener, the world has exploded at UNC fball today and it ain't Butch Davis' fault - he said it was the nanny !!!  ::MonkeyEek::

Butch is taking a beating on the fan boards for sure.........

this is a link to the press conference, it's a bit long and Davis the last of the three to speak but it's worth watching him.........honestly I sat there dumbfounded by his remarks.

Double digit members of the team to be suspended?!!!!!  That is some serious CHIT.  Can you imagine how that would kill a team?  Especially with all the pre season hype.  Think of the poor kids that actually studied and did it on their own?  I would be fuming.  Bet they lose some recruits over this as well.  I bet Davis will be canned before the season even starts, if not early into it.  You gotta know what your tutor/nanny is doing with your athletes.  LORD.

Indeed it is serious, in fact UNC brought in their "legal team" weeks ago which is why I think they are being so careful what is said publicly prior to completion of the investigation. I can't imagine that Davis didn't know this tutor was helping these athletes because I am very sure she didn't do it for free? Yes I feel for those student/athletes who do it on their own but often those are not the 'stars' as I think we see in this case.

I'm still flabbergasted at FSU not getting more serious sanctions then they did for their WIDESPREAD academic fraud within the academic department.What constitutes the death penalty?Seriously!

INDIANAPOLIS---The NCAA Division I Committee on Infractions has penalized Florida State University for major violations in its athletics program.

The case involved academic fraud affecting more than 60 student-athletes across 10 sports, as well as impermissible benefits, unethical conduct by three former academic support services staff members, and a failure to monitor by the university.

The sports programs involved in these violations include football, baseball, men's track and field, women's track and field, men's swimming, women's swimming, men's basketball, women's basketball, softball and men's golf.


Penalties for the violations include four years of probation, scholarship reductions,  vacation of records, and show-cause penalties for the former staff members.

PDH and I spoke today and she really does appreciate everyone's prayers, the first hurdle is past but now the longer race begins so we need to hold PDH and her daughter close in prayer for sometime to come.

I'm so glad we spoke too and it was just good to hear your voice. I hope you had good news at week's end too!

Son sent me a photo over his phone this morning of their resident pup, no not a pig but a pup - named Oliver. He belongs to the HC but he attends every practice and since son misses Big Red I'm glad he has a pup to love on there. I'll email the photo to myself and see if I can post it. Oh and he's a golden retriever and we plan to find or make a mascot bandana for him and ship it to them.

I agree KTF. I think UNC is getting so much scrutiny because for the first time in a long time, they are being ranked near the top for their defense this season. Typically the ACC is a basketball conference with few who excel in football as well - typically Va Tech has 'owned' football in the ACC since moving from Big East.

::MonkeyDance::

Yeah - they posted it when it was first installed on the Nebraska forums saying "heh guys we should do this - NOT"!  Couldn't believe someone actually approved that.  Hideous.  Do you know how hard that would be on the eyes of those in the stadium?  Bet it doesnt last 2 seasons. 



That would be enough to give me a migraine. And I don't even have migraines. It's hideous! ::MonkeyEek::






Pregame checklist:

cable - bill paid and in working order.
TV - new last season, HD flat screen. Good to go.
food - menu is wings from our favorite neighborhood place. Already ordered to be picked up at 5:30.
dog - trained, bathed, and excited. New Auburn bandana.
Xanax - not needed for this game. Saving for later in the season. ::MonkeyHaHa::

I think I'm ready!!! ::MonkeyDance::



WAR EAGLE!!!! ::MonkeyCheer4::

Interesting starts to games..

Missouri looking AWFUL

Penn State trailing Youngstown in the 2nd

Florida had negative yards offence in the first quarter.  They are really missing Tebow and crew.  They will get the W but they might have a tough season

Iowa spanking some directional school

Florida State has 15000 empty seats in the stadium.... sad... and spanking some school I never heard of 42-0 in the first half.  WOW.

Less than an hour til kick off an Bo still hasn't announced our QB.  Everyone is saying it is the redshirt freshman out of CA because he is a speed demon that can scramble.  Guess we'll know soon enough.  For some reason he wanted this under wraps. ha ha  Like the CIA. 

K State is playing well against UCLA... its probably because Annie has that purple scarf on... no doubt.   ::MonkeyWink::

Ole Miss got a bit of a scare didn't they? But I have a lotta faith in Coach Rader to get that young QB steadily improving - have to wonder how much Masoli really will play?

Fla State played Samford, it's a good private college in B'ham but better known for basketball then for football. I actually dated a very tall guy who played bball for them back in the day, he's administrator for one of the hospitals there now.

Yum on the goodies you made! I sure will trade some wings for those!


GO!!! So good to see you! What's up with the Badgers? They look to be pretty good this year from what I've read. Good luck to your team this season!


Cameron Newton was as advertised and more!!! Our offense is something to behold. But our defense needs some tweaking....
All things considered, though...I am happy with our opener, and with the win! WDE!!!

Before I transferred to UAB I went to Jacksonville State University.....and today my Gamecocks beat Houston Nutt and Ole Miss! ::MonkeyHaHa::
 ::MonkeyHaHa::
Jax State was a team that just would not stop. They took Ole Miss to overtime and then beat them.
 Jeremiah Masoli had a few moments of offensive showmanship , but he was a little rusty. He does seem to be very good though. I'm not sure how he'll do against SEC defenses. But I can see why Houston Nutt wanted him. He is very talented.

Ole Miss and Auburn may have the best QB1's in the SEC....sorry cuz!


Speaking of cuz....I hope the new job in the new town is everything you are hoping for! Sounds exciting!
Congrats on the Arky win also!



Watching the OK State Cowboys right now!  ::CowboySmiley::



So....Boise State or VaTech on Monday night?  I guess I'll go with the Hokies.

Great to hear from so many today!!!!!  GO Hope you can stay awake for the game.. I have to take naps to stay up that late. ha ha

Well we won and the speed demon lived up to the hype - great game for a redshirt freshman.  123 yds rushing I think only two passes that weren't caught but neither were on him.  First time we have EVER started one the first game.  Tommie Frazier started as a RSFreshman but the 4th or 5th game.  Offense looked pretty good today - much improved.  Defense... Bo was pissed... ha ha. 

Texas and Oklahoma both struggled today I saw.  Wreck looks like you all kicked some butt.  How did they look?

I read in an article this week that part of why Masoli was so awesome was because of the scheme they ran at Oregon and obviously his surrounding cast... they didnt think he'd be anything great at Ole Miss.  Guess we shall see.

None - good luck to your son tomorrow!  I will take one of each of those cupcakes. yum yum

None the Dawg House will definitely be open tomorrow! How many guests are expected?
Who brought those cup cakes today? Fab
GO- We were getting worried about you! Pdh was going to send out a search party. Your Badgers are looking fine!
Cuz- Another Michigan QB had a fine day for you. The other one that jumped camp led ASU Threet to a nice start of the season. Would have liked QB Forcier to have played some of todays Mich game. Wouldn't want him to be the 3rd to jump ship.
Bean- As good a day your QB had, Robinson for Mich had 198 rushing yards and 186 passing 19 of 22. Played 3qts of the game. He's smoking fast and gain 20 lbs over the off season. Just they should play Forcier once in awhile to reduce the wear and tear over a hole season. That being said the Defense was very lucky UConn was pretty good. Since its a one game season we should go to a bowl game now. Nuts,  ::MonkeyShovel::well maybe we can out score everyone. Hmmm Hmmmmm
KTF- Sorry your game was the only real game on our list. BYU was a more even match. Next week Mich plays ND to decide if RR stays or goes. If we play defense it would be nice. Hopefully we'll stop rushing 3 and letting the opposing QB's pick us apart. But hey we were only 87th in defense last year.

Kiwi - sounds like you got yourself a gamer.  Fantastic news!  How did your D look?  Sorry but I didn't see any of your game or any highlights.  It sure seems like the team made a huge statement to doubters.

We only played our 'starter' for about 1/2 game and I'm not sure they are done with this multiple QB thing which drives me crazy.

This kid had 123 on only 7 carries - averaged almost 18 yds per carry and he scored 3 TDs on thos 7 carries.  I can see giving the 2nd stringer some time but we put in last year's starter for a couple series and he looked pretty much the same.  I say let the new kid get more reps and the team get into rhythm.

Is the Wisconsin game still on?  ::MonkeyHaHa::  I haven't seen a score on that one... will go check.

Well, needless to say --I'm pretty stoked about how we looked last night! Granted, it was lowly Washington State, but they ARE a major conference team. Our new OC was fantastic and our RB who was hurt last year returned to his form from 2 years ago (257 yards on 21 carries - 208 at half time).
Bring on Troy next week!!!

None - good luck to your son tomorrow!  I will take one of each of those cupcakes. yum yum



Masoli looked really good yesterday....considering the circumstances. He hasn't even had time to practice much or familiarize himself with the Ole Miss offense. But I saw him do some really good things, so he is talented. He could make things happen if he gets the chance. Nutt was out-coached yesterday, which is a common occurrence with him. Masoli isn't used to the bone-crushing defenses in the SEC either, so he may have trouble adjusting to that too. But from what I saw that kid has a lot of talent.

Florida looked very shaky yesterday. They have a lot of work to do.

Breaking news - UNC's asst head coach John Blake just resigned..........be interesting to see what happens next. I have to say it was heartening to see UNC's QB Yates perform so well along with many other teammates, against all the adversity. Good to see the team can pull together against all the emotions and adversity.

Well I'm watching the Hokies vs the blue corn !

pdh - it was quite a hail mary but glad to see the pirates have a better qb that can throw it high. I'm not worried about the tigers this week, truly I think you'll have a relatively easy win.

this is a piggie ?  ::rhino:: what did I miss?  ::MonkeyHaHa::
The joke is on me.. last year we were talking about how we needed a hawg and that icon showed up... without paying much attention.. tee hee... i proclaimed it the Arkansas razorback.. and that is how we got the cute little jiggly pink pig.  ::MonkeyHaHa:: ::MonkeyHaHa:: ::MonkeyHaHa::

yes... am watching the game... am really surprised at Boise State.  Holy moly they shocked the heck out of VA Tech at the beginning of the game.  Glad VA Tech is fighting back.

Well another 2 minutes and VT would have been ahead. Congrad to BS. The real question, should I buy tickets to the NC Bowl game here in AZ? Looking at the next twelve or so games for Boise St, except for Oregon St we have one side of the Championship game.Some how that doesn't seem right for the top 20 teams that are left to play out after week one.

Kiwi that is why I was rooting for Va Tech.  Boise State's remaining schedule looks like everyone else's season openers.  Every week.  Cupcake after cupcake.  Hard to get respect with that schedule no matter how good you are.  I would be the coach's poll will reflect that.  If BS has any falters, even if they win, you can bet they'll lose votes.

We already have BCS madness at week 2.

I was pulling for the Hokies for the same reason. But I was afraid they'd lose, and they did.

I like Va. Tech.....but they are over-ranked every single year. Ever since the Michael Vick years they have been ranked higher than they should be, and they help boost another team up in the polls because they lose their opener to that team. Va Tech is a good team but not a # 10, and they never were even before last night. Their defense is awful, and it's what lost them the game. Boise State will benefit from what happened to Auburn in 2004 without earning it because they really don't play a tough schedule. If they go undefeated now...they'll be in the BCS because ESPN wants it that way. The media hype has begun along with the whining.

Well the season is on, one can tell from all the comments  ::MonkeyHaHa::

Even ESPN was discussing how rabid the debate will be around the Boise cupcake schedule and honestly I was shocked VT's defense didn't get their game on sooner. Foster has been the DC for Beamer for many years and even ESPN was stating how good he is? I don't feel qualified to comment for due to son, I know more about offensive strategies than defensive ones.

I liked the black helmets but I surely didn't like those orange cleats  ::MonkeyDevil::

Kiwi - buy some tickets for you can always sell them, even online. I can email you where to find those types of exchanges to sell tickets.

GO - replied to your email my friend

Cuz - you're going to have a tremendous season with your QB Mallet.......last night I was thinking just watching the first week of games ( not all but some) that this might well be the year of the QB for so many teams?

Our friend and fellow poster BigOrangeCrush lost his son to a sudden death recently. I know Bean has often asked about him and he's BigOrange due to his allegiance to UT. That said, they still don't have all of the medical answers regarding what caused his son's death yet but I know all of you share in the sympathy and prayers we want to send out to his family during this most difficult time.

I think it makes games very boring when all they do is run up and down the field with very little resistance.

I agree PDH, for example, watching Tulsa vs ECU those were my exact thoughts. Just score at will..........

I still say defense wins championships, in football and in basketball.

I saw the announcement about Bush and the Heismann and like you, I think it's disgraceful all around. Again, the BCS and ESPN fueled this 'build a dynasty at any cost' approach to college football and it's slowly destroying it now.

i jumped ahead of myself a week....we don't play alabama week after next ....we have to go thru georgia first. 2 tough games in a row.

I don't think he cared enough in the first place....and that's sorta the point. It's a matter of principle. It was never meant for a semi-pro athlete to even be nominated, let alone win. It should go to Vince Young.

At some point in time, the NCAA, and all these other organizations that are involved in college football...like the Heisman Committee...have to make these teams either respect the rules, and reinstate ethics in sports, or just give in and quit being hypocritical. They all ride the fence right now, and the Reggie Bush/Pete Carroll types play them for all it's worth...which is millions of dollars. The whole USC thing is a disgrace, but it was never a big secret. That just makes it that much worse.

PDH thanks for the links, I made it through most of them with the exception of the buy a car pop-up that bleacherreport has and I'd like to throw a brick at it !

Bottom line it appears these odds are primarily resting on the QB's shoulders, MSU's being very young. I dunno that I ever take an ESPN analyst seriously anymore so I discount that one. As for vegas odds, no expert on that.

A million things can happen to impact the outcome, from whose passing game synchs with their receivers on any given day, good or poor officiating, to injuries for defensive players, which players are "on" or "off", how many penalties occur, to even which way the wind is blowing..........sports analysts are a bit like the weatherman to me because of this  ::MonkeyHaHa::

You guys think Reggie will lose his trophy? I'm not sure he even cares anymore... ha





I don't think he cared enough in the first place....and that's sorta the point. It's a matter of principle. It was never meant for a semi-pro athlete to even be nominated, let alone win. It should go to Vince Young.

At some point in time, the NCAA, and all these other organizations that are involved in college football...like the Heisman Committee...have to make these teams either respect the rules, and reinstate ethics in sports, or just give in and quit being hypocritical. They all ride the fence right now, and the Reggie Bush/Pete Carroll types play them for all it's worth...which is millions of dollars. The whole USC thing is a disgrace, but it was never a big secret. That just makes it that much worse.

It really wasn't a secret was it? Mind blowing...........even now.

I don't know how many of you are watching the ripple in the pond of this NCAA agent investigation, for UNC is the high profile but the same investigation into the Miami party has now caused players to be suspended not only at UNC but also at Alabama, South Carolina, and UGA.

weird I hadn't heard anything yet today None.  I knew he was the line coach here - I remember he couldn't coach for chit... you saw our D... but that he was all about recruiting.  Not sure if he was here one or two seasons under Clownahan.  Not too worried - we didn't have alot of folks going pro during that 'era'.   ::MonkeyDevil::

But to be a vp at an agency and double dip like that.... that man will fry.

First of all I am watching PDH's game and so far, her War Eagles are doing a fine job! Score in the 3rd is 17 to 7 ! Defense does need to work a bit harder in the secondary so hoping they can close that gap asap.

Bean - Yahoo News broke the story today, it seems they located an internet screenshot from Wichard's site to verify Blake was listed there as a VP during his tenure at MSU and OK.

wreck - one has to wonder why the Heels ever hired Blake because it appears he had 'issues' from way back? Glad you see the humor in his history !

Wow...this game is intense... whichever teams finds defense wins.  I'm surprised - this is reversal... Auburn's O is better than its D.  Hopefully it will come with reps.  Cheering 'em on PDH.  QBs are both HUGE.

None -I'm watching it......because Saban mouthed off about agents publically. One of the agents then made veiled remarks about coaches with things to hide who shouldn't be criticizing others.  ::MonkeyEek::
I have a feeling he made some powerful enemies with that remark and things will get very ugly before all of this is over. The NCAA is looking at Bama now too, and they are already on probation.
During Pete Carroll's entire tenure at USC the NCAA stood by and did nothing. Now all of a sudden they have decided to start cleaning things up?
I wonder about the NCAA. Just what made them get up and do their job? Was it because all the infractions were getting to be so public, and so far out of hand that something finally had to be done?

Oh Lordy I know it Kiwi! It's that bad ESPN football juju again! I like it better when they write us off. ::MonkeyEek::

Kirk Herbstreit did predict that Auburn would win the SEC West a few weeks ago. He's about the only one that ever gives us any credit on ESPN. Things have not been good between Auburn and ESPN since they were part of the media manipulation in 2004 that probably cost us a National Championship.


I'm just glad we managed to hold off MSU.  Dan Mullen has them going in the right direction, and they were very well coached last night. They had a great game plan. Another year of recruiting, and the MSU Dawgs will be back in the fight fully loaded again. They  heavily recruited Cameron Newton too, and he almost went there because he had a relationship with Dan Mullen from his Florida days. Just imagine if he'd been on the other side last night! ::MonkeyEek::

Cameron Newton is a very Tebow-esque QB1, and I'm thankful that he's an Auburn Tiger!!!

Defense wins championships! I was glad to see tough defense being played by both sides last night. Traditional SEC football is what I love the most.

For some reason, Auburn and MSU in particular always seem to have a tough defensive battle. I think it makes for a much better game. Last night was exciting to watch. Our defense did a great job, even with all the inexperienced young players we have. My personal MVP was Nick Fairley....Big # 90! He really did an amazing job!


WDE!



So wreck....watch out for Troy! They are upset specialists.

Bama and Penn St. - Gotta go with Bama

Miami and OSU.....Maybe Miami.

Big Z is fine. He posted on his Twitter that he's OK and will play next week. I think it was a precautionary move to take him out since his back-up is also a stellar player and did a fine job filling in on the fly. As you well know...the SEC is a rough place to play football, and Big Z wants to continue his streak of being a first stringer who has never missed starting a game. Plus he has a future in the NFL....

We have several players from Arkansas on our roster, don't we? Ziemba's parents went to Auburn, so it was no contest for him, even growing up in Little Rock.
We also have Kodi Burns and Michael Dyer.

At tomorrow's football game, college football coaches and sideline personnel at Nebraska will honor the men and women that help keep America safe by wearing the Stars and Stripes Collection by adidas. On-field staff will wear the red, white and blue themed apparel and headwear to celebrate, honor and thank those who have served the country. Fans can purchase these special items at HUSKERS.COM and a precentage of all proceed will go towards providing financial assistant to our men and women in uniform

Just watched the end of the UGA vs SC game and ole visor man looked pretty happy at the end.

Cuz, you should be okay next week for sure now, UGA has some real issues to work through beyond not having AJ Green this week.

I hope everyone is having a fun football weekend, son's game is later so keeping my fingers and toes crossed for them. Had my first long conversation with him last night and he sounded really tired, but shared some stories from the last game - seems that there was one official that he tangled with throughout the game.

Well Michigan pulled that off without a defense. Denard Robinson the QB carried for 258 yards and 2TD, One for 87yards second longest in ND history. He passed for 244 yards and went 24-40 on pass completion, combined for 502 yards offense. I couldn't find the total yards for the team numbers yet. If they can learn this defense by the end of the year we may give the other OSU a run for the last game. Last I checked our OSU  ::CowboySmiley:: was beating Troy.
I'll get right on fixing that TV after that play that put ND up at the 3min mark or so. ::MonkeyNoNo::

Kiwi - I was actually able to watch the last quarter of your game.  Had to laugh - your QB is all over the Husker Boards.  All saying this guy is a stud and we can't wait to play him.  That was a great come from behind - though frankly your D shouldn't have allowed ND to even be in the game... but you know that.  Hopefully they will progress and give that poor QB a break. 

Lots of good games today and lots of surprise upsets.  Yeah.  Wow to both Kansas win as well as the VA TECH loss.  Boise State BCS bid hurt by this for sure.

Last week our O led the way and D was suspect.  This week our D played unreal - two defensive touchdowns off of interceptions.  (the Utah QB is on several watch lists - a good player)  4 or 5 sacks.  Love our defense - it is so fun to watch.  Our O made some mistakes that need to be cleaned up if we are to play in Washington next week. 

Watching a bit of the TX vs Wyoming game... not impressed at all with TX so far.  Actually shocked.  Wyoming was up towards the end of the 2nd qtr and TX had only been able to score a couple field goals.  I'd like to see them come to Lincoln undefeated but they play TTech next week.  I think the new O strategy of running is hurting them.

TN beating up on the Ducks?!!!  Strange season huh?

Wreck.. they'll get it together and win.. pre season games can be fickle.

Saw Cuz is winning also and GO's team got a W today.

Congrats to Bean and to wreck on your wins !!  ::MonkeyCheer4::

Kiwi, looks like RR just re-secured his job  ::MonkeyWink::

Cuz, looks like Arkansas has a lock-down for a win !!  ::MonkeyDance::

Don't know if any of you are watching the Penn St/Bama game and I had to feel for Bolden being a true freshman but I think he will have a bright future. As for Richardson the RB golly gee, do they even need Ingram now? Julio looks a lot better than last season but my oh my, I do love McElroy. Son texted with him about a week ago just before his Rhodes scholar interview and none of us are surprised by his continued excellence. You could never meet a finer young man but so glad to see him pound his chest in leadership and play so well tonight. He has always been such a good friend to son even post son's transfer.

I think I have a serious momma crush  ::MonkeyHaHa::

not really a lock down none! but, we will take it!!!
it was only 7 to 0 at halftime and ended up 31 t to 7! our defense was awesome the whole game except for 1 late 4th quarter drive but still held them to under 200 yard total offense.
our offense was out of sync the first half but got it rolling(kudos to ulm's strange defense that caused the confusion at first).....mallett ended up 65% completion rate for 400 yards, 3 passing td's, 1 rushing td and 1 int!

dang....georgia is going to be hot after losing to s.carollina...and we have to play them in athens! guess we find out if we are for real next sat. will be out of pocket all next week....but will be thinking of you guys and watching football sat.....wishing everybody success!!

cuz is AJ Green back next game? I have no idea how long his suspension is but he deserved it for selling his jersey - what a stupid thing to do. Word is someone connected to the UNC fiasco actually purchased it from him. More word out today that John Blake is really at the center of the agent pay-off's to players.......but the tentacles have reached all across the SEC with the exception of a few - including your Hawgs which I know you're grateful for.

God Bless You.

Your Vols now have a pretty talented guy as the new coach. I think TN. is well on it's way back. I was pulling for the Vols tonight, but it was a rough one. I still think Dooley will pull out a good season for TN anyway.

Troy is a very fine team, with a spectacular coach who came from Auburn to Troy after Pat Dye stepped down as head coach. I knew they'd be tough. Congrats on the win! ::CowboySmiley::




Also congrats to Kiwi. cuz, GO and Beans!!!  The SM bunch had a pretty good week.


South Carolina looked very good. Their RB Marcus Lattimore is the real deal. Auburn recruited him heavily, but he's a So. Carolina kid who wanted to stay close to home.

I knew Va. Tech was not a very good team. I wasn't surprised by their loss today. They may lose more games as the season goes on. They have no defense and a young QB1. Boise St. has no place being ranked #1. I'm not sure they're even a top 10 team.

The FL. Gators have found their game at last, and they looked really good today.

Penn State was another over ranked team, and I thought they had no chance against Bama. That was a very boring game.

Congratulations to Turner Gill and the Jayhawks. I hope he is very successful there.

Oregon came on STRONG in the 2nd half.  Weird game.  Wonder what was going on first half?  TN does look to be in good hands.  It will take a couple years to get over "kiffin gate". 

Likewise TX came back pretty good.  But boy do they miss their QB and WR duo.  That game was just boring.  Perhaps they are saving the good stuff for conference play. 

Lots of wins yesterday!  Of the games I watched, most impressed with improvement at Michigan.  Hope their D can step it up in future games.

My Vols were beat by a superior team even tho we were tied at half 13-13. We have no depth and Oregon had waves of quick players. We just ran out of gas. The back breaker was when the Ducks had scored and were up 20-13 and we were driving and we had a 80 yard interception return.

Several monkeys have ask about how I liked Kiffin. My opinion is that he was a brash West Coast guy and he rubbed most of The Old School Southerners the wrong way. He said he was trying to bring attention to the program. I think it was the wrong way to bring attention. I can not blame him for taking his dream job. It just at a time that destroyed the Vols recruiting before Dooley could get on track. I think Dooley will do a fine job if Vol fans will give him 4 years.

Everyone needs to refresh me with which college teams they support. I know of you support several. Maybe your top 3.

You and son are so much alike Bean, just two weeks ago he called and gave me a dissertation on how his players just had not learned that anything less than perfection isn't enough? I told him not to be so hard on them  ::MonkeyHaHa::

As for the low-life Missouri captain I hope they lock him up and throw away the key! Jeez that's so disheartening to know a supposed team leader would do this twice???

We had some irony tonight, after all of my posts about UNC's issues currently.........daughter and I went to the japanese steak house for dinner after working all weekend.........ended up sitting at the grill table with the 'stars' on the UNC women's basketball team? One male football player too but I have to say they were all mature, friendly and lovely people. The flip side of all the negatives are all the talented and committed players that day-in and day-out work hard and do their best. We promised to make a couple of games, they said UConn is going to be their toughest challenge this season.

Heh None - here's some material for son:

The coaching legend John Wooden once said, "Perfection is an impossibility but striving for perfection is not." Pelini offered his take on the matter when he met with his linebackers before Saturday's game.

"They say you shouldn't coach perfection because it's a road to failure, because nobody is perfect. The people who say that are losers," Pelini said

BOC - Great to see you posting!
Kiffen was a terrible fit for the SEC. He has neither the smarts nor the personality for a storied program like TN. It was a blessing in disguise when he ran off, and now Dooley Jr. will bring the Vols back.


I am first an Auburn fan, but I support all SEC teams when they are not playing AU. I also support my monkey friends and their teams.  ::MonkeyCheer4::


For all you monkeys who watched the Auburn - MSU game...you may remember the big Auburn defensive guy # 90 Nick Fairley. It looks like he got SEC Defensive player of the week. Last week Cam Newton our QB1 got the offensive player of the week, so we seem to be putting things together on both sides of the ball a little better than last year!

The interesting thing is that everyone says that Bo is not really a meanie... he is emotional.  He's like the guy you know that you think is a mean SOB but really a pussy cat at heart.  Fans and media don't get to see that.  Players love him to death for it. 

Saw that article on the QBs earlier.  Pretty cool... especially given how awful the Offenses were at Auburn, Michigan and NU last year.  Main thing is can they play with the big boys.  I am excited but will contain myself until we make it thru the next few hurdles... but our little guy can scamper.  His average carry is like 15 or more yards.  He doesn't have alot of carries or reps yet though because he keeps scoring on long runs and our D scores.  So we need more reps for him!

Kiffin and Oregeron were great recruiters, but I think we would have been major trouble with NCAA is a short period.  We can still be in trouble for some of his  dealings.He did have a beautiful wife in Layla. As None said Dooley's are a class act and now we need to see if he can coach and recruit with big boys!

Cam Newton is some kind of athlete. Florida's loss is our gain....and we are very happy to have Cam.

I also agree with his assessment of Marcus Lattimore at South Carolina. He's one fast and agile beast. I fear the Gamecocks this year. ::MonkeyEek::



beans - I never thought Bo was a meanie. He's just a man of few words, and few pretensions, but he seems intense. There's nothing wrong with that. His LSU players loved him, and he's a great teacher of young men.


College Game Day on ESPN is at Auburn this week. We play the always hot and cold team from Clemson. Who knows which team will show up for them, but Auburn needs to bring it all and win the game.

One more thing nonesy....
Please ask Nascar to once again help me defeat the bad ESPN football juju. If they're hangin' out in Auburn all day...it will take some powerful Nascar Winner Mojo headed down to the Jordan-Hare Stadium. ::MonkeyEek::

So bean you watch our game. The offense still has room to grow, since Robinson is still only a Sophomore. I wouldn't mind seeing Forcie play at least half of next weeks game just in case Robinson gets banged up during the season. Some day our defense will stop sending 3 on the prevent. It seems like if you give someone 10 seconds to find a receiver they will.

Yep.  My concern for Robinson is that if he keeps being accountable for 98% of the offense he will end up hurt and that will hurt the team.  I don't know enough about the other players but I sure hope they can contribute and give this lad a break!  He is phenomenal.  He deserves a supporting cast! Should be exciting to see him play a few more years.. and yes - backup QB's should always be thrown in the mix so that they have game day experience as well.  I'll be cheering this young man on.

Robinson seems very supportive on the sidelines this year and last, even it he wasn't playing. It was good to see RR corrected Forcier on the sidelines. First game he was alone on the bench trying to hide from cameras. At the ND game RR had him next him with a headset on and involved in the game. Good to see he realizes there both 19 or 18 yr old sophomores. The media can definitely get in your face at a game.

So Reggie Bush gave up the Heisman today.   Never said he's sorry yet to USC.  What a shame.  I bet he'll miss that trophy.  Not.  Consequences are hurting other young men and a university that gave him a free education and the spring board to the fame he now enjoys.  Shame on you Reggie.  Shame.

PDH - mission accomplished, NASCAR is casting strong winning mojo toward the Tigers, I spoke with him a few minutes ago. He also said his life would be far better if only those he is coaching realized that SEC football is a religion in the south  ::MonkeyHaHa::

Bean I didn't see that about Bush returning the heismann until I saw your post, then ran to read the news on it. Yep, he's not too sorry and neither is Carroll. Just rape the program and move on, right?

I saw this tonight and I have such concerns, son has headaches even now and I have worried all of those hits and tackles might be the origin for this. http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=5569329  I also saw a news clip of several NFL players that post hard hits this fall in games, were stumbling and unable to stand up readily or when they did, they wobbled and fell to the ground - both were put back into the game within a quarter and both were diagnosed post the game with concussions. This has to stop.......

Saw this tonight too, I don't think it's reactionary unlike the FL player's attorney post what happened with the rugby player killing his former girlfriend at UVA. http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=5570905

So..........who's truly worried about their game this weekend? (PDH we know lol)........so we can start sending win mojo your way.

So bean you watch our game. The offense still has room to grow, since Robinson is still only a Sophomore. I wouldn't mind seeing Forcie play at least half of next weeks game just in case Robinson gets banged up during the season. Some day our defense will stop sending 3 on the prevent. It seems like if you give someone 10 seconds to find a receiver they will.


Yep.  My concern for Robinson is that if he keeps being accountable for 98% of the offense he will end up hurt and that will hurt the team.  I don't know enough about the other players but I sure hope they can contribute and give this lad a break!  He is phenomenal.  He deserves a supporting cast! Should be exciting to see him play a few more years.. and yes - backup QB's should always be thrown in the mix so that they have game day experience as well.  I'll be cheering this young man on.
Robinson seems very supportive on the sidelines this year and last, even it he wasn't playing. It was good to see RR corrected Forcier on the sidelines. First game he was alone on the bench trying to hide from cameras. At the ND game RR had him next him with a headset on and involved in the game. Good to see he realizes there both 19 or 18 yr old sophomores. The media can definitely get in your face at a game.

I need to check your QB situation out, have to admit I've not had time to do much this week besides work.

The media gets in their face everyday when they leave practice, follow them to their cars like papparazzi and yes, at games they are in their face too. It's a lot for a young player to handle or even a more senior one.

Who's worried?!  Me!  I'm scared chitless every game no matter what.  This week moreso.  We play at Washington against Jake Locker.  Not so worried about the D - we have a redshirt freshman QB who rocked but against two easy teams.  This will be interesting.  He's young and will make mistakes.  Just hope he continues with his 50 yd scampers this week.

Washington is a very loud stadium - loudest in country I read.  Good news is that we expect 20000 Husker fans to be there - for real.  I was at the last game in 97 - a beautiful place.

Very interesting that a few places like LSU, Florida, Georgia, Ohio State,Oregon, Auburn, PSU and Va Tech are mentioned in several articles.
My vote is for LSU. It's so loud down there that your ears literally ring for hours afterward.

Washington had the loudest game ever reccorded. But beans...there is hope. It was just that one game.... ::rhino::

A TON of Nebraskans move/retire to Washington, Oregon and California.  I am not reading we could have as many as 25,000 fans there.  The stadium only holds 72000 so the noise will work both ways!  One fan who went to the NU game at VA Tech last year decided to purchase $10,000 worth of tickets and sell them exclusively to NU fans.  He bought them LAST YEAR.  The ticket office at Seattle said people starting asking to buy tickets in 2007.  ::MonkeyDevil::

Bean when the swarm comes to Ann Arbor,  the tailgate stuff is not like ASU.  There is very little parking at the stadium directly. 113,000 plus parks on the side streets up to half a mile away and walks. Kind of fun when just a few turns into tens of thousands as you get closer. Noise doesn't seem to be a big factor there.  The bowl seems to not hold sound well or the crowd just doesn't yell unless there is a TD. When you get closer to going I can suggest some places to stay and eat.

I used to travel to Detroit a lot so one time I hopped over to Ann Arbor. When you see the stadium on TV for so many years, you do not realize that it is completely below ground level. I drove up thinking I would see a towering edifice -- but, I got out of the car and peeked down an entrance ramp to see the HUGE stadium below me!! Impressive!  ::MonkeyCool::

I wish I was going to the game in Auburn this weekend. With College Game Day there it's going to be a fabulous day down there on The Plains. They are having an "ALL IN" at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Everybody is supposed to wear All Blue, and be "ALL IN" for the football team and the game. Coach Chizik called an impromptu meeting tonight for the students and thousands of kids showed up. He asked for everybody to be "ALL IN" and help the team win this weekend.

none- Was Nascar ever worried about playing in the SEC?
That's a really cool picture. Bama is quite a place.


These kids all knew it was wrong to go to that party. They gambled and lost. It's just too bad that that their teams and others were hurt by it.

Wreck you'll like this. A few years ago I took my son to a Michigan game. We flew in, bought tickets on line. The last 2 of 6 out of 106,000 seats. I get there and of course you can buy a ticket for any section. We find our row somewhere in the end-zone, except our seats are 50 deep and only one way in. Since you sit on concrete and not actual seats, all 50 people are seated shoulder to shoulder. Actually the whole section is seated and full. So we slide in and make 50 very unhappy fans all move down 2 seats, while the game is going. Bean this is important, be early not late when you go! We had Michigan T-shirts on. I can only imagine what would happen for Husker fans asking 50 to move. Even more important bring seat cushions!

I love hearing about Chiznik's pep rally PDH, I wish you could make that game too.

Nascar has always set his sights high PDH, he probably was intimidated but he didn't let it show. The Bama coaches also really welcomed him and acted as if he was just as important as any other high profile recruit, which speaks volumes about them as a group and as people I think. One of the things I remember most is how some of the more senior players really tested him in practice. Once son didn't call home for two weeks during his redshirt season which was very unusual, I finally got worried enough to call his roommate who told me son had a very bad sore throat but would call me soon as he could talk well. I found out later that a 'star' on the team on defense clipped son in the throat during practice and son took it and probably was injured, but refused to admit it not wanting to miss practice but also to save face. That player is in the NFL now........he's quite a good defensive player.

Son revered the legacy of Bear at Bama and also thought the world of each of his coaches and his teammates. I think he was sad to leave but knew Saban wasn't the best fit for him.

boy that was long-winded LOL

Kiwi - I bet that getting an entire row to move over during a game was not fun ! I can imagine that concrete is bone-chilling too. Even with seats in the club section at some stadiums I always take a seat cushion! I bet Bean has some big, bright, red ones !   ::MonkeySkate::

Thanks for the advice!  The stands in Lincoln are almost full 1 hr before the game - we like to watch them warm up and get settled ourselves so barring problems with parking I'd probably be the first in the row! ha.  Wow.  concrete seats?  Ouch.  Yep... big red seats for sure.  Do they allow the kind with seat backs?  So where does everyone tailgate if parking is such a beech?

I get somewhat irritated when people around me are still getting to their seats and are blocking my view. I would be considerate of others and wait until the eagle flight was over, or until the team was on the field...... ::MonkeyMad::::MonkeyHaHa::

As a student there we just walked in. Now I just park by the stadium on someones lawn for 20 bucks. There may be a parking lot on the north side. Best bet is to look at a satellite photo and see if there is a spot for tailgating and call to see if its some kind of reserve area. You may have to find it and post on Husker web sites the exact spot. Or else your 20,000 are going to be parking in different areas scattered around the city and walking. You could start this off Bean! Setting up the first tailgate party the city has ever seen. Here at ASU as you remember we are set up around the stadium on the North and East side. The last time ASU played Neb here, that was my first time seeing more fans and tailgate parties than the home team. So if you want to make a dent in 113k plus, mais and blue fans your going to have to prepare. But hey thats one reason why they asked Neb to join the Big Ten. Whats the date of that game maybe its time for a visit? Yes you need to bring a cushion!!

That was hysterical! That morning radio show is broadcast from Birmingham, my home town, and I have been listening to Rick and Bubba for years. Rick's son Blake Burgess actually plays for Auburn, and so did Rick's Dad, Bill Burgess. Bill Burgess was also the football coach at Jacksonville State University for many years.... ::MonkeyHaHa::

Rick Burgess and is wife Sheri lost their toddler son about 2 years ago....he drowned in the family pool. It was really awful. Blake Burgess talked about it in an interview not long ago. Here's the link...

so pdh & bean, got your game gear ready to roll??  Sending you winning mojo !!!

Thanks for the mojo for son's team but alas, their first loss of the season - 55 to 52 at the buzzer........shouldn't have happened but it did. Son took it fairly well for his players made all of the TD's but also spoke about 2 plays that were key that could have changed the outcome. He said he had already assigned hill-runs and they hadn't even loaded up the bus yet ! Lessons learned.....onward and upward as they say. FYI, a smart-mouth opposing player literally came over to son's team's bench to slap down a player - son caught him and literally picked him up by the back of his shirt and escorted him on his tippy-toes back to his coaches. Turns out the kid broke his leg a few plays later, no illegal hit either.........some kinda karma on that one. I just don't think I've ever seen a player do that in any fball game? Have ya'll ever heard of going over to the opposing team's bench to assault a player?  ::MonkeyShocked::

Good luck to everyone today - mojo for wins coming your way !!  ::MonkeyCheer4::

WOW PDH... what a game!  Holy cow.  Congrats.  Brutal is right.  Big 12 officials would have called some head to head penalties on those injuries too.  Man what a game.

Congrats to everyone on the W's.  Some real head scratchers in the Big 12 huh Wreck?  Missouri almost lost so San Diego State.. I mean almost lost as in seconds.  TX A&M almost lost to ?Florida Intl (I think it was) same thing.. very end pulled it out.  Oklahoma vs Air Force - who saw that game?  Score made it look close???!!!

Yes, proud of the Huskers.  Very young team.  We have 5 or 6 starters out for all or most of season including both middle LBs.  Youngsters have stepped up and so yes we have some 'bonehead' mistakes as Bo would say but boy did the deliver on both sides of the ball today.  Hope some of you got to see Taylor Martinez our QB.  He is special.

Oh and they are saying between 30 and 35 THOUSAND Husker fans were at the game.  That stadium is just so gorgeous and it is a great venue... I was really regretting not going and remembering my trip there in 97 all day today.

Watching Tx vs TTech now.  Was really close but TX is ahead by 10 now. Good game so far.

I saw UAB's win also PDH, son spoke with their head coach just a week ago, that program really is on build mode.

I think lots of Bill Curry as well, I think he will put that program on the map.

My next door neighbor passed away in his sleep this morning so it's been a tough day so far, helping to support his wife until their children arrive. I saw him late yesterday as I walked our pup and he liking football too, I told him to be sure to watch the AU game and his wife said he did and got very excited that they won. He was in failing health for years and in his late 70's but PDH, AU has a new angel watching over them. So does son.........sigh.

Yes, CRAZY games in the Big 12! Oklahoma and Air Force were close most of the game, then Oklahoma pulled away. Air Force then came back with 2 late touch downs.

The OSU - Tulsa game wasn't as close as the score (65-28)! We pulled our starters after the first series of the second half ( one play - an 81 yard TD pass). It was 58 - 7 midway thru the 3rd quarter. We played true and red-shirt freshmen the rest of the way!

oh short week for your team wreck, glad they won and no injuries?

pdh, thank you.

This is going to be an explosive interview in our parts tomorrow night - Dr Friday was president of UNC for many years and thought of as a true icon. I've met him a few times when I served on endowment board and he is that quality leadership we all hope for. In any event, the 'teasers' state how he's not been to a college football game in years, that he knows too much.........I'm unsure if this is going to be a slam against just agents but I hope it's a dissertation on far more than that. Hopefully they will post a video link tomorrow night I can share and not just a transcript. http://orange.mync.com/site/Orange/news/story/55362/get-answers-why-bill-friday-calls-college-football-manipulated/

It's half-time in the Peyton brother's game and Bob Costa is detailing how critical it is to change the attitudes and practices associated with concussion/cranial injuries in the NFL ! Geez I hope  he can start a revolution.........

They need an enterprising neurologist to create a better helmet, or change the rules for tackling. One of our smaller backs got his bell rung Saturday night, but he seems OK now. Plus we lost a defensive player for the rest of the year with a broken ankle. Clemson's QB1 has bruised ribs, and one of their guys has a leg injury too- possibly a broken bone judging by the treatment he received on the field. It was a very hard hitting game. In the NFL that's the way every game is played week after week. Bodies can't take that kind of punishment on a regular basis without some permanent damage. Running backs, receivers, and QB's are especially vulnerable to devastating injuries. Something can be done to protect them a little better.


UNC is in a heap of trouble right now nonesy, but this whole thing may get very ugly when all the facts are known about all of it. There's no telling where all this will lead...or to whom. If the agents feel that their backs are against the wall due to this...they may tell all they know about everybody.

I do have a link to Dr Friday's interview tonight, he was overall head of the university system, not just UNC. Shades of Beer & Circus but at this moment, he's the only former or current official I've heard willing to state the truth out in the open......

http://orange.mync.com/site/Orange/news/story/55362/get-answers-why-bill-friday-calls-college-football-manipulated/

He hasn't been to a university football game in 5 years........which coincides with the Saban hire at any cost.

This was sad to see, Kenny McKinley - Broncos and former SC/Spurrier WR, possible suicide: http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5iVHptSr08tE4Rvp6Q1Zdd5ifzotAD9IC1I101

Dr. Friday and I are on the same page! I have posted here that BIG MONEY and the media have ruined college football. If the university would pay the players a stipend like they do graduate students, then the temptation would not be so strong. Lots of these kids have virtually no money, and they can't work.
I also think excessive salaries for college coaches should stop too. The NCAA needs to clean house across the board, and stop letting the Pete Carroll type of coaches get away with this stuff for 10 years before doing anything. Either that, or stop being hypocritical, and just let agents give money to the players out in the open.


Title: Re: FOOTBALL WITH FRIJOLE #3 8/14/10 -
Post by: nonesuche on September 21, 2010, 06:52:25 PM
PDH I agree with Dr Friday as well and it's a real statement for him to speak out in this way, but he is from an era that seemed to value ethics and wisdom far more. It will be interesting to see now that he "outted" the exact Millions of dollars being spent on football at UNC, that it will pressure some scrutiny. I guess all we can do is hope and pray.

I also think the NCAA needs to hire you PDH !

Wow thanks none!  I'd clean house across the board that's for sure.  ::MonkeyMad::

 Millions of dollars are being made on the backs of these kids who play collegiate sports. I do not think it would be so awful to share a little of it with the kids who make coaches millionaires. Athletes are not like other scholarship students. Athletes literally put their bodies at risk for a college degree and a chance in life, and some suffer life-altering injuries. If an athlete needs extra financial assistance it should be allowed.

Auburn is playing So. Carolina....and they are a pretty good team this year. Spurrier is finally getting a winning team put together.

The game is on ESPN again...so all the bad juju is flowing again. It almost got us last week. Please send all the good mojo you can down to Auburn.
I'm not talking about it anymore because I'm so superstitious.... ::MonkeyEek::

cuz...Take 'em down for me! If your team can get to McElroy and bag him, then you have a good chance of shocking the Tide. I wish you luck, because they are tough this year.


beans...LOL! I would do the same thing. I'm just grateful that Auburn's games are televised on ESPN a lot, or Fox or CSS. ::MonkeyCheer4::


Good luck to GO's team!

BOC - I hope the Vols can win if they are playing this weekend. I haven't checked their schedule yet.

pd...gamecocks are very good this year....go get em tigers!!!
been a crazy week for the razorback nation....big build up d/t mallett's show last week....he was named to all kinds of national player of the week awards. hope our offensive line can hold back bama's defense....if not, we are screwed since our running game is pitiful! bama is so deep and tough.......but i believe!! ::MonkeyAngel::
as far as our defense....i am so proud of how far they have come from last year...like night and day! did anybody see the hit jake bequette made on georgia's qb to get the ball back on our last drive? man....knocked the qb's helmet off and flattened him! plus jake is one cutie pie!!!!lol! ::MonkeyCool::


This might make you feel a little better considering who Bama has played so far.... ::piggy::

The Stats:

Bama is last in the SEC in sacks and TFLs

Arky is first in the SEC...with 12 sacks total and 6 against GA alone. ::piggy::


I think it will be a great game!



I looked today and the TN Vols play UAB!!!!  OH MY!!!

Sorry BOC!  I went to school at UAB....so...GO BLAZERS!!! ::MonkeyCheer4::

But I don't think the Blazers can pull it off. Good Luck to the Vols!

Here's another article. I wonder if this will make the NCAA take a look?

http://oversigning.com/testing/

WOW, this is like the year of the truth in football  ::MonkeyCool::

Saban cares only about winning, it's not personal to him because he doesn't build close relationships with anyone but boosters & that is only a means to an end. Bama wanted a NC above all else and he delivered, the boosters were willing to pay for it. It's a business, much like corporate america and Wall Street.

To be fair, the good things about Saban is that he's obviously good at spotting talent and cultivating talent, and at building a system to develop players. His strength & conditioning program is likely the best in the country, and you don't gain a starting position without working your a&& off either, regardless of who you are. However, he does give scholarships to players whose father's have tight relationships with boosters and it appears he's done that again with two this season.

That said, a colleague at work I greatly respect stated that we're watching the death of the american dream at this moment, and it appears college football is not exempt. What do players learn from coaches that play the system to their benefit, despite the ethics or lack thereof? What kind of men do they become as a result after football? I don't think the analysts are surveying those impacts........nor will they ever.

Hopefully these articles and those willing to write them continue to push to expose this, or those like Dr Friday will continue to speak out about the issues, the greed driving them, and the impacts.

Some of the players profiled in the last article PDH posted like Alfy Hill should have a bone of contention with the NCAA, particularly when ineligibility rests on courses taken in high school prior to their senior year. Maybe the NCAA isn't funded well enough to supply the staff to make these determinations timely, but if that is the case (I don't believe it is), Alabama should be calling them out for this - but it appears only his HS coach is - instead Bama won't return the HS coach's phone calls? ECU can use Hill, it should be a star-making opportunity for Hill since their gap at linebacker is as wide as the Mississippi this season.

For those coaches who make it their life's work for the love of the game and have a conscience regarding their players and recruits, let's pray we don't lose them for tiring of the external politics thanks to the NCAA that hurts their programs and places them at a disadvantage they shouldn't have to endure.

lol you do realise that Auburn has been doing the same thing for years up until this year? If the NCAA starts "looking into this" then they will have to look at everyone in the top 25 because they are all doing it. Now I'm not defending it. There was a really sad story about a kid that enrolled early to LSU, moved into his dorm and everything and then Miles did this to him! There are some kids out there that get shafted big time and it's not right.

Hey were at the half now 28-14 Michigan ahead. Robinson only played the first quarter before being injured. 128 yds rushing one quarter. A freshman came in with an int, counting for one of the Bowling Green scores. Some good news Forcie was brought in for the last series and moved the team very well for the last score before the half. Not as fast as Robinson, but very nice to watch. Doesn't appear to be bad injury to Robinson at this point. 450 yds total yds first half. Someone might want to go get the Defense I think they over slept.
Pdh its OK to brake a TV or two this season, We have plenty of back up in the Dawg House.
Bama does look good this year. But I'm backing Mallet since he's from Michigan's lost QB's, the other is Treat for ASU.

Actually...no. Auburn has not been abusing the medical rule. They have not been ruthless about it.
Aairon Savage was injured for over TWO years and didn't lose his football scholarship. It was never a guarantee that he'd come back healthy, but he did not lose his scholarship even though his absence left a hole in the defense. He's actually a starter this year even though he's working on a graduate degree. Same thing with Shon Coleman who is battling cancer. His football scholarship is still being saved for him so that he can play if his health allows it. Auburn is doing the right thing by keeping their promise to him. If he is never able to play football again, he will still attend Auburn, but they aren't kicking him off the team. It may take him 3 years to ever play a down if he does come back to play, but Auburn is waiting for him. The coaches have been nothing but supportive of these kids.

The Wall Street Journal  is one of the most respected newspapers in the entire world. They don't just throw these kinds of articles out there for fun. There is substance to what they print.

It's not irrational. He's unethical, and that's a subject for examination and discussion because his actions have been brought up in the national media. That's on him and Bama.

We have also talked a fair amount about other coaches such as Pete Carroll, Rich Rod, Mike Leach and Lane Kiffen. No one is singling out Lil' Nicky.

Spooky you can't take this stuff personal.  Everyone picks on the top team.  Mostly it was USC for the last 3 yrs but last year Bama earned the top slot, USC went down and there you go.  And its hardly bashing - frankly the team is fantastic and Saban can obviously coach.  If you stopped by and chatted ball with us on a regular basis I am sure we would have lots of meaningful, complimentary and fun conversations.  Your choice -

Boy did UAB give the Vols a run for their money? The Blazers might have a chance at winning their conf championship if they keep this up.

I'm pretty shocked BC didn't even get on the scoreboard with VTech but once again, one should never underestimate Beamer.

PDH I agree Auburn hasn't been cherry picking by over-signing in recent years and then using medicals as a way to pare back the roster to be compliant.

Cuz, wow - you have gotten the leap out on Bama and if you watched Saban's interview pre-game on ESPN, he even mentioned the importance of managing turnovers. But of course, he ended by slamming Mallet  ::MonkeyMad:: I yelled "grow up" at my TV  ::MonkeyHaHa::

PDH your game is on now and what a thriller.  Fingers crossed.

Cuz keep the head high because you were in it the entire time. 



It was a thriller alright!

I think I need to throw back a few gallons of Jack Black just to counter the adrenalin. I'm on overload!  ::monkeywine2::
And I may need to dye my hair. I feel like I possibly went completely gray before halftime...but I'm scared to look. ::MonkeyEek::

This is not the team for the meek and mild...but it's still GREAT TO BE AN AUBURN TIGER!!!  ::MonkeyDance::


Kiwi...Thanks for the smelling salts..... ::MonkeyLaugh::

Hi Sharon - great to see you here !!!

Don't be ashamed of those Canes, I'll have to send you an email  ::MonkeyKiss::

Yes the look on Saban's face was exactly what I expected, he has zero tolerance for anything less than perfection. I also know what he sounds like in the locker room when he's not happy - it would blister the devil's ears.

I agree, we all need to pray for safe seasons for these players. Those with serious injuries don't have easy paths at all, son talked with Prothro recently about just that issue. God bless the boys who get injured so seriously particularly please.

No doubt about it...Wisconsin is a great team. 


sharon - great to see a 'Canes fan posting! What's new down there? ::HelloKitty::


cuz....I felt that way many times over the last two years. It is so very hard to lose a game like that. Mallett was trying to make something happen, and it just didn't work out the way he thought it would. I really like that kid, and he'll go to next level and do well.



We play Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday. Our kids are a little banged up so I don't expect this one to be as hard hitting as the last 3 games have been.

I am joining in on the prayers for an injury free season. These are kids, after all. Some of them are barely 18.
none - I don't think I ever heard what happened with Prothro. I heard something about an injury, but I never heard any details. What happened to him? If you'd rather not post it here, I understand....

ASU - Wisconsin game besides missing the extra point to tie the game there was the 80 yard or so run to the one yard line as time expired at the half. Two ints in the endzone and one on the 3yd line.
ASU - Oregon more ints endzone while inside the 20yd line. Half of Oregon's points didn't come from the offense. ASU finished with almost 200 more yards total offense than Oregon.
All this is balanced by the Arizona Cardinals winning on a chip shot miss with 4 sec left against Oakland. Cards by one.

We don't play til the next Thursday.  Its the beginning of our Big 12 "Farewell Tour".  No doubt fans of our opponents will be doubly 'kind' and the refs 'as fair as usual'.  ::MonkeyTongue::  Seriously.. it hasn't really sunk in that this is our last game against K State, then TX, etc.  Too bad I have to work.  Would be fun to hit them all for old time's sake.

We did move up to #24 in the coaches poll (#32 in AP). Should be an interesting game!

Side note: an old buddy of mine that I have known since I moved to Dallas has started to come to my "watering hole". He is a HUGE Nebraska  fan (from Aurora, Neb). His wife just recently died of cancer (so sad). There are also 2 other big NU fans there, and the passion you all have is truly fun!! All 3 of them are trying to go to Stillwater for our match-up! Also, I saw on our forum that Nebraska has rented out the highschool stadium in Stillwater on the Friday night before the game for a pep ralley! You guys do travel very well!!

pdh - Prothro's original ankle injury (totally shattered) was excaberbated by an infection he caught while hospitalized which proved to derail his rehab for months. The original injury insured he could never play again as it is - so terribly sad. Son played on his basketball team in intramurals and got to know him fairly well, they are still in touch. Son has always thought Prothro would make a great college coach but even with help for big-time interviews in college programs and NFL, he hasn't landed anything. I don't get it, I really don't. I would think Bama of all programs would give him a shot too. This is a photo from the game against FL at the moment of his injury, it was so apparent how terrible the injury was at the moment of impact even from the stands. http://www.flickr.com/photos/beefcakejcc/49374670/

I see both sides of this, perhaps Gill's trying to 'out' the issues he sees that impact players and focus? I don't think you can legislate what he's trying to legislate, but ultimately somehow some players just don't mature enough to manage their own lives very well.  The frustrations of this for coaches is a real issue, for remember, they are held responsible for the wins or not -

I see both sides of this, perhaps Gill's trying to 'out' the issues he sees that impact players and focus?

I do have sympathy for coaches trying to keep a team focused. However....at some point a young person in college has to learn to sink or swim, and live with the decisions made....even the bad ones. A coach can't micromanage his players.
Forbidding a young man of college age from contact with girls after 10:00 PM is counter-productive IMHO.

Congrats on the win GO!!! Did your Badgers even break a sweat? I think even the janitor put on a Wisconsin uniform and got some playing time!  ::MonkeyHaHa::

No doubt about it...Wisconsin is a great team. 


sharon - great to see a 'Canes fan posting! What's new down there? ::HelloKitty::


cuz....I felt that way many times over the last two years. It is so very hard to lose a game like that. Mallett was trying to make something happen, and it just didn't work out the way he thought it would. I really like that kid, and he'll go to next level and do well.



We play Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday. Our kids are a little banged up so I don't expect this one to be as hard hitting as the last 3 games have been.

I am joining in on the prayers for an injury free season. These are kids, after all. Some of them are barely 18.
none - I don't think I ever heard what happened with Prothro. I heard something about an injury, but I never heard any details. What happened to him? If you'd rather not post it here, I understand....



On to Week 5!
Time flies when you're having a breakdown every Saturday night..::MonkeyLaugh::



pdh - Prothro's original ankle injury (totally shattered) was excaberbated by an infection he caught while hospitalized which proved to derail his rehab for months. The original injury insured he could never play again as it is - so terribly sad. Son played on his basketball team in intramurals and got to know him fairly well, they are still in touch. Son has always thought Prothro would make a great college coach but even with help for big-time interviews in college programs and NFL, he hasn't landed anything. I don't get it, I really don't. I would think Bama of all programs would give him a shot too. This is a photo from the game against FL at the moment of his injury, it was so apparent how terrible the injury was at the moment of impact even from the stands. http://www.flickr.com/photos/beefcakejcc/49374670/






OH MY GOSH! ::MonkeyEek::

That poor kid! That is truly a disturbing photo. God Bless him! I certainly hope Prothro gets a chance to coach. He must miss football terribly. That's really a heartbreaking way to end a football career.

Thanks for telling his story. I'll put him in my prayers. I hope he has regained his health now.

PDH I don't disagree, neither does son. The issue is the expectations of the AD and also boosters and fans. They expect a HC to manage these players and yes, to micromanage 'stars' with issues. I think Gill's remarks are public but that many HC's say similar things in private to some players. If an HC or his staff aren't able to turn around a star, depending upon the attitude of the AD, if they aren't being arrested then the expectation is to 'fix' them to ensure they deliver on the playing field. Son thinks you can tell pretty quickly which players can make the curve in terms of governing their own behavior but he's also quick to tell those who don't seem to have the desire to make the sacrifices, that they won't go far. I know he can and will have critics of his position on this.

I actually think facilities and rankings play a far greater role with recruits then even HC's.

Lots of good games tomorrow.  We are off so I can relax and just sit back and enjoy.  Good luck to all monkeys!  Special mojo powers to Nascar's team.  I am sure he is doing such a great job with his guys. 

Going to watch the little guy (6) play soccer in the a.m.  His sister (8) and little bro (4) are in a regional soccer skills competition out of town.  She took first place here at the 8-10 age group and get this... wee one at the age of 4 took first place in boys under 8!  My bro coaches the HS team and he is one proud papa. 

So who you got tomorrow?

TX vs OK - I gotta go with OK
FL vs Bama - Bama by a mile
Stanford vs OR - I call for an upset - Stanford.

Heh guys - the 4 yr old took first place!   ::MonkeyDance::

Bro said he had more points than even the 10 yr old bracket!  You kick goals from different distances, minimum 15 ft and the goal width is adjusted starting at like 4 feet and goes down to 2 ft.  He hit 2 out of 3 at the narrowest width again.  3 of 3 at the next narrowest.  You should see him.  He won his first trophy AND a soccer ball.  He is floating all day.

Next week the other boy and the sister compete in Lincoln at the punt, pass and kick competition... Sis from AZ will be in town.  Good thing we play on Thursday night huh?

I agree, TN did have it won and Dooley looked so upset in the PC post the game too. Miles, ugh!

Bama wiped the floor with FL (downright demoralizing) but cuz would be happy to know that the analysts on ESPN were touting Arkansas would be the toughest opponent Bama faces this season.

PDH had a big fat win ! Enjoy!

NCSU let VTech sneak up on them and with 3 turnovers, well NCSU gave it away. I do think VTech is going to improve as the season continues, they made some adjustments on their defense and those proved to be good changes.

I can't believe UGA let Colorado win their game, what a bad season for UGA.........I like Richt so much but this is a bit of a disaster season for them.

GO sorry to hear about your coach, I hope he can heal and the team can bounce back.

kiwi - you had a good day, hope you enjoyed it.

The state paper called for Butch Davis' firing on Friday but with another win this weekend, it's doubtful that's going to happen but it probably should.

FL, TN and GA are having some difficulties.... ::MonkeyEek::

Les Miles mismanages the clock AGAIN.... and LSU somehow manages to win another game in the last seconds. They did NOT deserve that win.
I admire Matt Simms, the QB1 for TN. That kid has taken a beating for 5 weeks in a row, and he just keeps on getting up and trying to win. He has a lot of guts. I wanted the win for him, dang it.
I think this loss broke CDD's heart.

We won in a big way...just what we needed. WDE!  ::MonkeyCheer4::


klaas! Congrats on the win! I got a kick out of some of the Game Day signs. ::MonkeyHaHa::


Bama is just rolling over everybody at the moment. I do think So. Carolina could be a threat to them, and you never know what Lady Luck will bring LSU.

And then there's Auburn...... ::MonkeyDance::

GO...sorry for the loss. Michigan State had extra incentive due to their Coach Dantonio being hospitalized. He was texting and calling during the game..... ::MonkeyHaHa::

None.. we forgive you... and knew what you meant...

Spartys were playing for their coach and it showed.  Sad thing is he was readmitted to the hospital due to a blood clot in his leg.  Guess it is common after heart procedures... but the team sure fought hard... I wouldn't have thought they'd beat WI.  Good win for them, hard loss for WI. 

How about the end of that LSU/TN game?  I'm with PDH... TN won that game.  It reminded me of when they put 1 second back on the clock in our TX game last year.  Heartbreaking when you think you win a good one and it gets reversed.  But thats sports.

None, how did son's team do this week?

TN did win that game and I expect young Dooley will figure out how to move on from it.

I knew you weren't calling me out PDH, I was calling myself out !

I figure for son to do what he's doing, it has to be a passion that drives you to coach, he's so far away from home and not complained one ounce. But if you love what you do, it compensates for many things. He seems able to turn it off though but he's not a HC.  I think when you're the HC and so much rises and falls on each game - it has to be all-consuming.

I don't have photos of everything yet but yes, I think these turned out well  ::MonkeyWink::

For the most part everyone did very well over the weekend! I noticed Wreck's OSU is in the top 25 this week and its well deserved. ::CowboySmiley::
Michigan plays Michigan State in Ann Arbor next weekend. So one of them well drop off the unbeaten list. Defensively, Michigan rushes 3, 80% of the time. Stats place them near the bottom of the 125 team list on defense. They gave up almost 500yds passing last game and 35 points. Which also points to the fact that 15-20 seconds for a QB to throw the ball, is enough time to complete 500yds passing. Just a little pressure on the opposing QB might reduce the need to have a shoot out. Just saying this encase RR reads here before the next game.
Who does AU, Neb, OSU, Arkansas, Alabama, Tenn, Texas, Washington, Oregon, Miami, ND, play next?

Yep.

Always wondered what he does before the games to get them so amped.  I heard he does incredible things.  Well evidently one night this week he showed them a film of a tiger hunting some other animal.  Very vivid and it ends right before the tiger destroys/eats the animal.  The message:  be the hunter and not the hunted.

He likes them to have a chip on their shoulder.  Guess when Bo went onto the field the KSU fans boo-ed him.  Reporter said he swore Bo had to fight the smile from showing.  Best part is all parts of the game were improved... cept for kick off returns. ha.  Now I can relax for the weekend.

48-13 and it wasn't that close.  Our QB averaged like 40 yds per carry.  He broke the record for most QB rushing yards in a game at NU and some others.. He's special.  Can't wait til he and your QB meet next year... that will be an interesting game!  Enjoy your trip.

We out-scored them 37-7 in 2nd half. Much better! That is the difference between big schools and smaller schools -- depth. A few years ago, we would lead Texas by 3-4 touchdowns in the first half and lose the game by 17. It boils down to depth.  ::CowboySmiley::

I think right after their BYU game, he posted a few times and that was it.
Nothing on the Natalee thread either -- so I don't think it was anything we did here.

I hope he's ok!  Cheering you on wherever you are KTF.

Wreck did you see TxTech's 'onside kick' attempt?  Stupid play of the year.  Gotta be on the highlight reels tonight. ha. 

Penn State getting beat by Illinois?  Whew.  Glad they are the appointed new rival we were given in the Big 10.  ::MonkeyDevil::  Keep that QB as the starter next year.

Miami plays Florida State Saturday night.

Miami is on their way once again, the game against FSU should be one to watch. I need to email you, son speaks with a coach at UM often.

Please do :-)  Address still the same.

pdh3 I agree about coach and cleanup -- that's the only reason I can root for them, finally :-) Shalala has been instrumental in the cleanup and image change for the entire university.

Good luck this weekend, everyone !

I'll email soon I promise, I have my mother here this week but hopefully I can break away long enough for a few emails. The minute I step over to my laptop she calls my name to come hither ..........

actually I'm not surprised to see Hall in this mess but I am surprised to see Darwin in it. Hall's mother was always one of the most vocal ones about how her baby was going to the big ride........




He's goin' to the big ride all right...to jail in the back of a police car.

well said PDH. If you notice via google, Darwin now has his own website? These are the kinds of things that happen when you build your life around the hope for the big ride.........so sad.

They did an onside kick and the ball went 10 yds and landed on the ground.  It is laying there and there are 2 TT guys and a Baylor kid.  Seemed like forever they all just looked at the ball.  LOL.  Finally the Baylor guy picks it up and runs the length of the field to score.  Just read on our boards that they did the same thing last week?  Oh my.  LOL

Auburn played another heart-attack inducing game, and won with no time left on the clock by kicking a field goal. The game was tied until that point. Kentucky has a very talented offense, and they played their hearts out tonite.

Cuz and PDH you both had close games yesterday - congrats on the win. 

Kiwi - at the beginning of the season if anyone had said you would win the first 4 or 5 games people would have said no way.  So no shame for your team.  We knew the D needed work, still does.  YOu might need to bring in a new coach.  Who is the DC anyway?  But your team has done a great job of winning when no one thought they had a chance.  Those kids should be proud of that.

Wow - so McElroy just had his first loss since junior high school.  Wonder how he's taking it?  Thats kind of strange.  I'm happy for the ole Ball Coach.  Got himself a big win.  Good for him.

Les Miles is one crazy dude.  All I got on him.   ::MonkeyHaHa::

I am headed to the state punt, pass, and kick competition in Lincoln today.... Got a 6 yr old and an 8 yr old competing.  Should be fun.  Gorgeous weather.  Have a great day all.

beans is right Sharon.....no shame in the Dawg House! We just try to comfort ourselves and lick our wounds and move on to the next game.
Losing is no fun, but all of us have seen our teams fall, and there's lots of time left in the season.......

GO and his Badgers have a huge game this week! I can't wait to see how Pryor responds to Wisconsin's meat and potatos style of defense. That will be a great game!

We played Minnesota and have kept the Paul Bunyan Axe now for seven straight years. 

I think I read that it would be possible to end the season with a maximum of seven teams being undefeated.  I know there are all the formulas with the rankings, but I can see this being a real PR nightmare.  It is never a guarantee, but we seem to have some great games with Ohio State.  Our problem is that we are losing players on defense.  We just lost our best linebacker for the season.

Cuz, I hope the best team wins and sending strong mojo for your team too!

kiwi - I know I still owe you an email and I do sharon as well.

Sharon, I think UM is on their way up again despite that loss and I'm happy to see that trend back up again. Keep the faith....

Son's team had another win so now if they can continue their trend,  honestly he never brags about his players' performances but for a team that heretofore was known as a running back program it's his wr's that are making this season's top offensive performances. So I'm pretty proud of him, he said he plowed into a dip in the practice field last week and slid 30 feet just trying to demonstrate a technique so his leg is now oozing. I told him the high side is that his players can't say he's not suffering right along with them  ::MonkeyWink::

Best to all the monkey teams and shy-monkey, good to have you back !! Boise representing!!

What a difference a year or two makes huh?  Thought of that when reading an article about this year's hot QBs:  Cameron from Auburn, Denard from Michigan and Taylor from Nebraska... Last year each of these teams really struggled on offense.  And all teams have new coaches.  Cuz's team Arkansas has really turned around also under new leadership... Lots of changes over the last 4 yrs and nice to see us all winning.  Wreck's team undefeated and an offensive nightmare.  (in a good way)  GO team only has one loss and could take out Ohio State this week.  We are on a roll!

PDH and Cuz... good luck this weekend... should be a great game.

None - thank you... we really need some positive mojo.  If you go back and look at the last 3 or 4 games we had against TX we gave the game away each time.  Heartbreakers all of them.  Time to change all that.  I will be sure to have some  ::monkeywine2:: libations on hand for sure.

So Julio Jones played with a broken hand and had surgery and they put screws in him today.  Ouch.  And that kid from VA Tech(might not have it right) that lost his finger tip and played thru the pain and had it sewn on in the 4th quarter.  UNREAL PAIN.  OMG.

None - great news re son.  Tell him to keep up the great work.  He is making a difference in young men's lives.  How fantastic is that?

I don't know what's wrong with these kids. I'm sure a lot of it starts in their homes when they are very young. Poverty and broken homes, lack of discipline from parents, parents setting bad examples.. Then as they get older and display athletic talent, people let them get away with things. Coaches focus on building playing skills instead of building a child's character right along with his playing ability. Parents are sometimes worse than some of the coaches when it comes to pushing their kids' physical abilities over worrying about how they develop in their souls. When my son played in Pop Warner, there were actually parent coaches from other teams spying on our practices and filming our games. There were coaches who lied and allowed older kids to play even though it was against the rules. These children were 10 years old, and they saw all that. Terrible role models.
There's also a trend to recruit on sheer athletic ability without considering the character of the kids. That's due to the pressure put on coaches to win at all costs. The media and the fans share some of the that guilt. Coaches like Pete Carroll, and players like Reggie Bush cheat for years, and there are absolutely no consequences for that behavior. They both made millions by not following the rules, and don't think kids aren't watching. The same goes for Michael Vick. He should never have been allowed back in the NFL. MV is a perfect example of what's wrong with sports. He got away with a lot in college because he was so talented. But he has no character.

Bean we have all agreed the defense being ranked near the bottom of the 120 teams will ultimately fail. The defensive coach's last name is Robinson, he was the       head coach for Syracuse. Still the kids are playing hard.
New monkeys Kiwi's Dawg House is always open for your games. Everyone has their own big screen TV with your game of course playing, plus a couch with your team colors. Its already there now. Win or lose were here and root for everyones teams.
Just a side I'm watching the start of the miners rescue. World wide prayers happening now.

Agreed regarding the miners, God bless each of them and their families and loved ones. I found it remarkable to hear there was no jostling for position as to who would come up first, but disagreement regarding who would go last. Their leader had done an outstanding job and he's insisting on coming up last. Just brings tears to my eyes.........such character.

Bean, I had a long talk with son today which is rare for he is so busy. He said Bo's exciting to watch and how much respect he has for what he's accomplished. He also talked a good bit about Bama's loss and PDH take note - he's betting on the War Eagles to go all the way. He also talked about the lack of defense on certain teams and specifically mentioned the strategy to focus everything on offense and scoring - to the degree that certain HC's don't care if they have no defense with the exception of skill in interceptions, and just want the other team to score quickly so that they can put up another TD on the board themselves? I don't understand it, defense wins championships...........it's also a certainty that those teams will not be able to recruit strong defensive players. He also talked about their last game, both of their QB's were injured and unable to play. I can't imagine what it feels like to arrive at a game knowing you are missing your offensive leader?? Son actually called me just as they were walking into the stadium but it was a butt ring, he wasn't there when I answered. We both laughed and he said he guesses it was fear factor calling his momma subliminally?  ::MonkeyHaHa:: Anyway, there is a good story here for one of his wr's is smaller than the average but very talented. He had played QB in high school but was recruited as a wr for college and he's done very well, he's fast as lightning and shifty. Well he was the QB and not only did they win, they won by 52 and the other team never scored. Even more meaningful is that this kid grew up in a home without even running water, he's quiet and respectful and I think pure joy for my son. I told son he's lucky to have him and to be part of his life and to do right by this boy always.

PDH I agree with much of what you posted about players, son says simply that they either want success or they do not, and that it's nearly impossible to change a bad attitude. Some of these players also attend high schools (yes public 5A ones) that don't even require they attend classes all week - it just blows my mind.

PDH - black Santa won't need to worry about coaching anymore after that article by Lutz in SI, he can call it a day for sure. IF he does coach again, then we'll know what the true state of college football is. I don't care if he's a Svengali at recruiting, now we know why and he's teaching his recruits all the wrong things.

Kiwi - thank you again for our dawg house and for all the fine hospitality !!

Klaas - I love the emoticons, I want that foam finger, can we load it here?  ::MonkeyHaHa::

I don't even know that kid that Nascar is coaching....and I'm proud of him. I'm glad he had a big day as the QB! Knowing Nascar has been a blessing I'm sure.



The miner rescue is such a hope-filled story. I'm praying that all of them get out alive and well, and also the brave men who went down to help with the rescue out of the mine.


I guess Nascar will have to spread his good mojo around this week. ::MonkeyHaHa::

Thought ya'll would love listening to U$C whine about the N/S split in the Pac12. ::MonkeyDance::


USC wants Cal, Stanford on schedule

http://sports.espn.go.com/los-angeles/ncf/news/story?id=5686274

The new divisions for the Pac-10 are not set, but USC athletic director Pat Haden gave a hint as to what they will be at a booster club meeting in San Gabriel, Calif., on Wednesday night.

And, he is not overjoyed with the split.


Pac-10 blog
 ESPN.com's Ted Miller writes about all things Pac-10 in his conference blog.

• Blog network:
College Football Nation


"We're going for the money, sadly; that's what it is," Haden said. "We need a conference title game."

Athletic directors voted 7-5 on the alignment -- Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, UCLA, USC and Utah in one division and Cal, Oregon, Oregon State, Stanford, Washington and Washington State -- in the other, Haden said. The presidents of the schools will vote on it later this month.

"I told [the rest of the athletic directors] my alumni will kill me if we don’t play the Northern California schools," Haden said.

"I proposed a 5-2-2 model that has us playing the five schools [in our division] every year and then have the Northern California schools as part of our regular two and then rotate the other two. We need to play Stanford and Cal."

That team quit and quit early.  I have no inside info but I would bet big money that there is a lot of division on that team.  TGs style is a 180 from Mangino.  You don't change the culture over night.  Some aren't buying in and they aren't even trying.  THat was just sad.  I can't buy the line that he's an awful coach because he was a major coaching contributor for NU during the national champ years.  You don't get stupid over night.  Something is rotten in Denmark I would guess.  I am not looking forward to their trip to NU.

I like Turner Gill, and I can't say that he's a bad coach. I wondered about some of the rules he established, and I suspect that's part of the issue right now. But he has proven that he can succeed because of what he accomplished at Buffalo.
Apparently the adjustment is not going well. It's obvious he's not getting his team to gel. Maybe after a few recruiting classes he will have a much better team. I hope he's successful. He wasn't a good fit for Auburn, but he should be able to do very well at Kansas if they give him enough time. He's a good man, and he's good for college football.

Poor guy. He must be wishing he was still in Buffalo.


Good luck to all this weekend!

GO...watching your game now and cheering you on.  All I can say is WOW.

Auburn being undefeated after 7 games is indeed an accomplishment in the SEC. We face LSU next, and they are also undefeated. Every year they seem to beat us on some crazy play that goes their way.

PDH you guys will be tested for sure playing LSU and the game I can't wait for is Bama.  Whoa that one will be more emotional than NU/TX.  Specially since you are ahead of them in the polls.  We are all well aware of Les Miles - often referred to as Les-ticles or Lucky Les - and his bizarre antics.  He is one character for sure.  I love his interviews. NOT.   ::MonkeyDevil::

GO you are humble.  Great things out of the land of cheese this year.  Huge win.  You will get that bowl game and more if you keep it up.

KIWI ... I'm buying the first round in the dog house this week.  You guys planning on getting a new DC?  Is that the problem?

NONE... big shout out to son on the win.  WTG.  Keeps us proud.

CUZ... I'll buy a round for you too!  Is Mallet hurt bad?  I just read he didn't play the whole game.

MN fired their coach today.  Not surprised.  I swear his downfall was when he hired our former DC under Callahan.  You saw our defense.  It sucked big time.  I can't believe any school any where any division would ever hire him.  He was truly that bad.  We really wanted to play against him in the Big 10 next year though dang it.  LOL

Special prayers going out to the Rutgers player who was hurt and is paralyzed.  It is just a game and these are young men.  Lest we forget.... Schiano was so emotional.  Felt bad for all of them.

Bean I do not believe there is any change in the DC planned. However, unless RR wants to leave 100th defense should just about do it.
KTF great win in D2overtime. Thankfully OrSt going for two helped.

Wreck... pretty slow start but keep checking it out... hopefully they'll come out of their depression and get this thread going. ha.  They also do a weekly movie poster.  Take the original and photoshop it for the game.  Some real good ones.  No thread yet for that yet.  Like I said... we are pretty upset still.  Hope the team is better at shaking it off then we are.   ::monkeywine2::

This is pretty cool.  Rutgers set up a get well email system for Eric who is paralyzed from Saturday's game.  No one else can read what is written, its just an automated system for getting some positive words out to a young kid who could probably use them.

Yes our game is huge and as good as we have always been against Ohio State, whether we win or lose, we never seem to play all that well against Iowa. 

I was mistaken about our bowl bid.  It seems I am already getting e-mails from the alumni association stating we are already bowl eligible and they are putting names on a travel waiting list no matter where it is.  As a fan group we "travel" very well and that makes us attractive to those wishing to fill a stadium.

So Wreck... some folks are predicting you guys are gonna beat us.  Hope they are wrong.  I don't know about your team but ours is kind of hard to predict.  We've played fantastic except for two games and both of those were frightening.  First one was SDSU and I have to believe we did zero prep and totally took it for granted which is sooooo stupid.  The TX game I think we were too psyched up for it.  We played stiff and made mistakes early on - gave them the ball inside the 20 for an easy score on OUR first drive... duh.  The players just continued to make errors... almost as bad as last years 8 fumble Iowa State game.... there has to be something mental going on....

So after all that.... I don't know what to expect - that team or the one that played vs Washington and K State.  I will share that for some reason Pelini's teams all have played better on the ROAD.  Weird as well.

Did a bit of studying and in addition to having a fantastic offense your defense is like #20.  Should be a good game.  Hope the good guys win.   ::MonkeyWink:: ::MonkeyDevil::

I could see the game going several ways -- but I think you are going to have to get off to a big start to beat us. Should you fall too far behind early, I think your offense would have a hard time catching up. Well see!!

pdh3, I didn't realize that about Auburn.  I just knew that Alabama hasn't had a week off, but several of the teams they've played have had the prior week off before facing Bama.  My husband told me that Alabama's schedule is so unfair that the SEC changed the rules so that it wouldn't happen to any team NEXT season.  I root for Auburn when they don't play Alabama, so good luck!!  I also think the new chant they have at Auburn is so cute: War CAM Eagle!

Post by: pdh3 on October 23, 2010, 03:41:46 AM
I don't know about rule changes....but the AD at each school is the one who sets the schedule. In your case that would be Mal Moore. Bama fans should blame him, not the SEC. Schedules are set several years ahead of time, so sometimes it just doesn't work out.

Good luck to you tomorrow!

I'm pulling for Iowa State! When Gene Chizik left to come to Auburn, Paul Rhodes left Auburn to take over the HC job at ISU!  He's continuing the job of making something happen up there. It's not an easy thing to do, but there seems to be a glimmer of hope. At least ISU is being competitive.

Hope the rest of you are having great luck today...
You did me proud.  I had to choose an upset game for a contest at work between NU/OKST, OK/MO and IA/MN and I picked MN to win.  Have a shot at a really neat prize... Thanks GO!  LOL

Congrats Frijole!! Props to your "running" QB -- he can pass too! Our defense is just horrible!!!  ::CowboySmiley::
Ah Wreck.... fwiw you guys broke a 14 game streak we had where we didn't allow more than 21 points!  Yes our little stud can pass... our problem last week was the damn receivers.  And truly I think we watched him grow up today.  Thank God.  Our D was not nearly as good as they normally are so that is HUGE kudos to your offense.  I am confident you guys will beat the crap out of TX and I am counting on that.  I will live vicariously through that.  You guys have a great future - no one expected squat this year.  And I don't think you should fall in the polls.  Husker fans were raving about the way they were treated pre game by Okie St fans.

I'm going to clarify that rule doa, and get back to you.
Auburn has 11 games before they get a break, but we do have a bye the week before the Iron Bowl. However....Auburn has just about always taken a break that week before they play Bama. It's nothing new.

Here's the rule from a sports forum...


Yes, the Alabama program made a push for it....I believe the rule is 'No more than 3 bye weeks against one team'....For example, take Auburn's schedule next year....no more than 3 teams can have a bye week against Auburn in 1 season.

It's an SEC rule. And yes...schedules are set years in advance. It was not anything to do with Saban personally when teams set their schdules 5 years ago. I like Bama, but I do not like Saban because of stuff like that. Bye weeks are nothing new. When Saban was at LSU....there were bye weeks. It just happened to fall that several schools had bye weeks before they played Bama one year, and he pitched a fit. Bama fans don't like any criticism of Saban,and I'm sure I'll get roasted for speaking my mind, but he is sort of a whiner about stuff. He should've been upset with Mal Moore, the Bama AD who scheduled Bama's games.


Hey cuz....Thanks for the kind words. I know what you mean about the officials. We've gotten burned by bad calls in every single game. The SEC officials need to be retrained. I did see a couple of missed calls in the OK-Mizzou game too, so it's not just the SEC who makes mistakes. They just make too many of them. But we seem to be snake-bit by officials in our league, especially in the past 2 years. Not sure why.....but Arkansas and Auburn have been hurt the worst, and it seems to be continuing this season. My personal opinion is that we don't make officials accountable to anyone but the SEC office. The coaches really don't have much of a voice. If they complain, they get fined like Urban Meyer did. All they can do is send in tapes and hope that action is taken. ::MonkeyNoNo::

I hope Mallett heals quickly. He's such talented kid. He'll make a perfect NFL QB1. He's got the kind of skills that they look for in the pros.

Thanks for that information, pdh3.  I knew Auburn was resting before they played Alabama, but I didn't think anything negative about that (it's that all those other teams have been doing it...); anyway, for the most part, Bama seems to be coping well with it.  I don't follow sports much, but I've always been a Bama fan.  I don't mind criticism of Coach Saban, though.  I criticized him myself at the end of the season before last when I felt that he threw that last game of the season; it was like he didn't want to win, so that he could tell his new recruits that, sure the graduating players were good, but they could be even better.  I remember kind of hoping they'd fire him for that.  I guess there's not much chance of that any time soon, and obviously not necessary.

I'm not going to be a sore loser if Auburn wins the Iron Bowl, though.  I mean, what a coup to win a national championship after so very many years.  And have you noticed that the cheerleader picture on this site is rooting for Auburn??  ::MonkeyCheer4::

I really wish I had seen your games because I keep reading about Cam.  He sounds like not only a great athlete but person as well.  I'm sure one of these weeks our games won't be at the same time.

It makes it hard to like Bama and dislike the coach, but I do like the kids who actually play the game....but there you go. Bama has a bye before the Iron Bowl also. Saban moved his Bama game with that beat down powerhouse Georgia State..... ::MonkeyHaHa:: so he now has no excuse. He should've kept quiet and just played his 4th string. GA State is in it's inaugural year for football. It's not like they can do much to a powerhouse like Bama.
It was good to see McElroy play Sat. There were rumors that he wasn't going to play because he hurt his hand. I was worried for him. He's a good kid.



I was just hoping to avoid the whole #1 issue. I am superstitious, and the #1 teams are falling like flies under a swatter. I was actually hoping to ride #2 until Dec. ::MonkeyEek::

nonesy....please have Nascar do an emergency mojo ceremony to ward off the #1 curse. It's very bad football juju to be #1 too early! OH MY!!! GET MY XANAX!!!! ::HelloKitty::

Post by: nonesuche on October 24, 2010, 11:33:32 PM
PDH, I spoke with NASCAR tonight in between struggling with a chocolate macaroon recipe and he was not a happy camper. I'll ask for the mojo but he's frankly consumed with teaching his players a lesson. They won their game and yes, it was horribly cold and snowy, but they would not block for him. He and the HC are worried it was just laziness so tomorrow no one will get individual passes at practice - he said no one will this week until they learn to block consistently.

Sigh.........I'm not much help either. He has a talented bunch but some real tudes to contend with too. I feel for him, there isn't a quick remedy to a recurring problem with tudes.

Haven't both AU and Bama always had a bye week prior to the Iron Bowl?

Saban produced the NC that the super boosters wanted. Unless he runs afoul of some big NCAA violations, I don't think there will be pressure to change him in any way. So long as he wins and wants the job at Bama, it's his. I've posted how crazy I am about McElroy but I was disappointed to hear his remark about having never lost a game since junior high. It wasn't as mature a remark as I would have hoped he would have made. Oh well.

Bean, Cam has some history, if you google why he left FL a good bit will pop up about a laptop and a window. Lately with the success AU has had, I see some of the competition fan boards and social networking sites ablaze with trying to resurrect all of that again. That said, I like to think that hard lesson made him a better player and man, and to listen to his HC speak about him he seems to think quite highly of Cam. He is an incredible player and to think he wasn't on AU's radar until they happened to go over to his junior college to look at someone else and happened to see Cam also?

Klaas and PDH - we're pulling for your teams to stay on top - now what if they end up in the NC or GO's team does, or Bean's does ????????

Going to be an interesting ending to the SM season, what a nice problem to have  ::MonkeyCheer4::

My goodness poor Nascar!  Those kids don't realize it yet, but they won't go far in life with those attitudes. Hopefully they will learn from Nascar and the coach. Maturity is always an issue with a team.

Here's the story on Cam Newton.
Cam is a good kid who did something stupid, and he admits it....speaking of maturity.Cam's dorm room fire sprinkler came on accidentally and ruined all of his stuff. He had to replace everything he had including his laptop, but he didn't have much money, so he was looking for a deal. He ended up buying a stolen laptop.When it came to light that the laptop was stolen, he panicked because of all he had to lose and threw it out a window. It was never his intention to break the law, and he wasn't the one who stole it. He knows he should've turned it down because it was of questionable origin. The price was too good to be true....but he was a young kid with no money and an immediate need for a computer, so he fell for the temptation. However, that's not why he left Florida. Cam wanted to play, and develop his QB skills, but Tebow came back for his senior season, so that left Cam riding the pine. He went to Blinn so he could play, and the rest is history. Auburn was originally his first choice over Florida, but Tubbs signed Kodi Burns as the future QB, so Cam went to Florida instead. I'm just glad he finally came to Auburn as a mature, polished leader. He is one amazing kid.

Post by: pdh3 on October 25, 2010, 11:40:54 AM
nonesy....As far as I an remember, Bama and AU have had an open date the weekend before the Iron Bowl. But Mal Moore scheduled Bama to play Georgia State in that school's first year with a football team the week before the IB in that open date. Saban was upset about it even though Ga State is not much of an opponent. He seriously could play the 4th string and win. But he got GA State to agree to move the game to the preceding Thurs. night, and the SEC approved it. That was the big stink created there about the bye week before the Auburn - Alabama game. So now Bama has a game on a Thurs. night, they get the weekend off, and Saban got his way even though Bama created their own problem to begin with by scheduling a game. Crazy! ::MonkeyHaHa::

Bean count me in as rooting for the Big Red !!!  ::dogwag::

PDH don't you think Mal Moore scheduled the game with GSU because Bill Curry's now the HC? I thought it was a bye week prior to the Iron Bowl when son was there, I just didn't know if that was historically an absolute. You should have a fairly easy win against Ole Miss and I have to tell you that my nephew was at the game last weekend -  as for son, I keep telling him that he needs to find a way to reach some of these kids, but then his HC is a believer that they either have that innate sense of wanting to learn and succeed or they don't.

We had a true thunderstorm here tonight, this is the wackiest weather ever ! Son had snow last weekend and it's in the 70's there today. I hope the weather settles down by the time for the games this weekend.

Post by: pdh3 on October 26, 2010, 01:34:30 AM
nonesy I think Bill Curry, who is such a great guy btw, called everybody he knew to schedule a game. GSU football is in it's infancy, and they need cash. That's why they had no problem moving the game to Thurs. night instead of Sat. GSU will get a nice payout for a game with Bama no matter what day they play. But for Saban to complain about it was kinda silly since Bama scheduled it themselves in the first place. It was never a surprise that it was the Sat. before the Iron Bowl, so I didn't understand all the drama.


Speaking of drama...does anyone think Lane Kiffen can mastermind a game plan good enough  to beat Oregon? ::MonkeyNoNo::



I have faith that if anyone could reach those kids it will be Nascar. He may not reach every single one of them, but I'm sure he can help at least a few.

We had very violent thunderstorms here also, and I got little sleep. My sweet golden retriever is terrified of those kinds of storms, and between his distress and all the booming and flashes of lightening there was just too much activity to sleep. Now I'm so wound up from pushing to stay awake all day that I CAN'T sleep. UGHHH!! My dog is having no problem sleeping though, that little stinker. ::MonkeyHaHa::

PDH - good articles.  I couldn't sleep last night either.  No storms though. ha.....  You are right - we will have our hands full this Saturday.

None - still proud of Nascar.  He sounds like he is doing a tremendous job, regardless of having to deal with some slackers or head cases.... all part of the job and it is great experience for our favorite young coach.  Whos up next?

Kiwi, who you play next?  Wreck? GO? Cuz? Sharon?  Obviously I am behind this week.

 ::MonkeyMad:: I have now!! For those of you that have not heard, our Heisman Trophy candidate (Justin Blackmon and a real good kid) went with a couple of teammates to the Cowboys-Giants game last night. He was pulled over going home in Carrollton, TX (literally a mile from where I work and about 5 miles from my house) for speeding. He was NOT drunk but DID have trace alcohol readings from the breathalyzer. Since he is a underage - he went to jail. Punishment is up to a $500. fine (a Class C misdemeanor).
Why US Lord???????????

Driving 92 in a 60mph zone at 3:45am is just stupid. Like I said, this a great kid -- if you have ever seen him interviewed, you can tell. He's not a thug -- they were going to see their friend Dez Bryant play. It is unfortunate that stupid youthful indescretions will follow you your whole life. He will learn from this and life goes on.

Thanks PDH and Bean, the kind words for son are always appreciated.

wreck, welcome to the party. What are no-brainers for most of us, unfortunately just do not seem to digest with some of these players. Ultimately walking the wild side with their friends can outweigh the 'smart' thing to do.

PDH this article is a great one on Newton, didn't know if you had seen it yet, it's apparently slated for next week's edition.

sharon - do you still have my email addy? I've been searching for yours but my email has crashed several times and when I try searching it, often I get no results. So if you have mine then shoot me one and I'll respond back.

we have tornado warnings tonight and knowing they savaged parts of the midwest last night, just praying we escape this wacky and dangerous weather soon......

LOL Thats Ok ... We came out on fire in all phases.  24-0 in first quarter and almost 300 yds of offense in first quarter.  Then MO made some adjustments.  I was really worried because we lost our prize CB in the first quarter and Martinez at half.  I cringed when last years QB came out but he did enough to keep us in the game and kill the clock so that was good. 

Did you see our goal line stance?  WOOOOOHHH.  Way inside the one with 4 shots at it.  They left with 3.  That was beautiful. 

Gonna watch some Auburn now.  Looks like they are in the lead big time already.  Can Baylor beat TX and make my day? 

How about ND losing to Tulsa because their coached messed up... rough week for ND football.

Congrats to Nebraska and Auburn, great games played with confidence. PDH the article you posted earlier this week was so heartwarming, I doubt many players could have sensed their way through that situation with such insight. Downright amazing......

sharon, I'll check my email but I have felt sure that UVA's new coach would begin to turn their program around eventually. I feel sure that wasn't a loss UM was anticipating.......sigh.

Kiwi, it's at the half so maybe your team can make the half-time adjustments........pulling for you.

I fear the loss to Florida may now seal Richt's fate - I wish if they fire anyone that it's Bobo and not Richt !!

As for ND, I cannot get past what happened with the student film guy this week - unbelievable he was ever asked to place himself in such jeopardy for what, practice film ???? He even posted on FB before he ever went up in that rig that he feared for his life !! Students don't say no to HC's...........I am just so angry about such a senseless loss of life.

OMG we had the strangest thing happen at our game.  We WON the coin toss and instead of saying "we chose to defer" our team captain (we alternate weekly) said "we chose to kick" and so at the beginning of the 2nd half we had to KICK OFF again!  Everyone was like WTH?  Bo said he went crazy over it and aged 10 years. ha.  I just assumed if you kicked off the first half you received the second... but I guess not.

None, I too am haunted by that poor kids' tweets while up in that machinery.  Frightening. 

PDH - great win.  None - tell son congrats!  They seem to be doing great.

I need to go check the scoreboards to see how everyone else did.  Oh, Wreck.. I did see you came out stronger in the 2nd half and kicked some purple butt.  WTG.

Naw KTF... inconsistent is a better word.  And None is right - changes like this take years to be effective... From what I read Locker can really run the ball and we scratched our head as to why you didn't play more to his strengths vs trying to make him strictly a pocket passer.  My point is your coach won't have 'his players' in the system for several years.  Hang in there and KEEP THE FAITH!!!

None- thanks for watching the Michigan game. Rather disturbing on defense. Just proves that when you rush 3, 90% of the time, even a first time QB walk on, is going to have an AU day. The only thing missing was not rushing any one. Prior to the game Michigan's Defense was ranked 117th in passing. 120th is possible. Just my observation but if they rushed say 4 and sometimes blitzed on third downs over 10 yards, they might run into the running back or even the QB by accident. I believe Robinson made it to 200 yards rushing. The offense actually is fun to watch, maybe they can play both ways! Its a good thing I put a fence in front of my TV since I've used up my quota for the season. Still it was nice to be on the winning side with most of our SM crew. 12 hours of college football has made me a little crazed  ::monkeywine2::Hmm I feel better now.

I know!  He had headaches in Sept, surgery the first of October and was doing well then bam.  Way sad.  So hard to believe.  Read the team found an old bus they could drive to the hospital to see him (out of town) and 50-60 players went.  That had to have meant a great deal to his family.  They play BAMA next and thank god are off this week.  Has to be very hard on them all.  Puts alot of things in perspective.

Nick was in the UAB Hospital in Birmingham. His Mom works at UAB, btw. It's maybe about 2 hours east, from Starkville,MS.

Well beans....I am actually gonna go against the grain and cheer for LSU. I'd usually be for Bama, but I think it's better for Auburn if LSU wins.  That takes Bama out of the BCS conversation altogether.  And I'd like to have the SEC West all sewed up.

Yep.... I think its better for anyone in the hunt if Bama is out - even Oregon because they have the D to play against them.  Not sure about some of the other top teams.  Wonder what tricks Les has up his sleeves this week?  lololol

Actually...Bama's D is not that great. They don't have the same D they had last year,and they are just now getting to the tough SEC teams. And Bama's offense is a little creaky too. The loss to So. Carolina was no freak occurance.

Oregon would probably win that matchup. They would just outscore Bama.

OK.. then who (in the top) does have the D to beat that fast spread? Gonna be hard to stop them.

Post by: pdh3 on November 05, 2010, 12:06:19 PM
You can't stop everything...hence the success of the spread and why it's so popular. Teams with a great spread offense win by wearing down the defense of the opposing team anyway because of the frenetic pace. Oregon has a mediocre defense too, but like Auburn they run everybody down in the 4th quarter and put the game away for the most part.
You don't stop a really great spread. You try to slow it down. You have to outscore. I actually think Bama is too slow offensively to keep up, more than the defense being an issue.
You may think I'm prejudiced, but right now Auburn matches up better with Oregon. Our O-Line and D-Line are better, and bigger too. We have faced tougher opponents. And nobody can stop our offense. LSU had one of the top defenses in the country, and we handled them very well. I think we could let Nick Fairley loose and he'd go calling on their QB1.

Oregon would make Boise State beg for mercy. Boise has never faced a tough team like that.

I think Wisconsin could hold up for a while because their defense is pretty stout, but like Bama they wouldn't be able to outscore them.


I haven't seen Arizona play, so I don't know how good they are. I guess we'll see pretty soon how well they do.

Well I dunno but the folks that started this story better be prepared to deliver on something or the kid has a libel case.  This could certainly end his Heisman hopes.  All I know is what I read online and of course there are two camps.  I feel sorry for the kid.

You ready for tomorrow Wreck?  I think our QB (sprained ankle) will sit out unless needed which is too bad because he is so much more fun to watch.  Rumor is our backup reinjured his shoulder/arm this week and might be out rest of season.  Hope the O line blocks like they did last week.  Heck I could run thru those holes. 

Haven't heard from everyone re who they are playing.... Cuz, GO, Kiwi, Sharon???  Whose up?

I don't think you really want me to unload on a public board what I think about Urban Meyer, ESPN, Fox Sports, the Bama connection to The New York Times, or about how ugly things can get. What they have done to Cam and to Auburn is disgusting.

Cecil Newton has now hired an attorney to protect his son.There's a reason he didn't want Cam at MSU. He didn't like the atmosphere. I can see why.

 Kenny Rogers has denied all allegations, and John Bond has changed his story today. They are both liars.



beans - Kenny Rogers son signed with Nebraska.... ::MonkeyEek::



This was investigated a long time ago. Auburn cleared Cam of any wrong doing before they ever let him play a single down. It's old news that Meyer and ESPN have re-manufactured. ESPN because they want to control the BCS and the Heisman, and Meyer because he's pissed that Cam is doing well elsewhere. The Bama connection is self-explanatory.


ESPN and agents and big money have ruined college football. I've been saying this for years, but this is even more evil than I realized. The timing was no accident. They are trying to keep the Heisman and BCS away from Auburn and Cam and redirect it to Boise St. The Boise St. campaign started with that pitiful Va Tech team, and it's gotten a full head of steam from all this. ESPN has done nothing but dog Auburn publically from the beginning of the season. It was the same thing they did to us in 2004. They swayed public opinion away from an undefeated Auburn team, and cost us votes that would've gotten us into the BCS. Now they are doing the very same thing, and trying to take a talented kid down while they are at it.

I think all of them are backtracking today because they've heard from a few lawyers.

Statement from Auburn's AD.

http://auburn.247sports.com/Article/Jacobs-No-question-about-eligibility-4922



I was very upset with AD Jacobs after the Tubby firing, but now I see why it was time for a change. I really disliked him for almost a year until I began to see that the changes he was making in AU Athletics were all having positive results. I have come to have the utmost respect for, and trust in his judgement. There was a great recruit in the AU basketball program that the AU Compliance Dept released due to possible issues. AD Jacobs will not allow any player to stay if there is any question about eligibility or character.


Enough said. WDE!

PDH re Kenny Rogers son... I had to dig but it looks like he was in Pelinis first class.  I remember we picked up to Bama kids in last minute scramble to fill the class.  One was a kid name Wald who fans went crazy for and he never played and went to a smaller school in Bama I think.  Found this on Justin:

Justin Rogers - 3* (5.6) - Auburn, Clemson, UCLA

Notes: For some reason, I thought Rogers left because he was homesick. I haven't confirmed it is the same person, but it appears that Justin is now a cornerback commit for Texas Tech after spending a season at Arizona Western Community College

I'm upset at the entire lot of the NCAA and just about ALL of the media. Rumors are the only thing that drive the press. Sports Illustrated comes out this week and says "OSU's Justin Blackmon is back after after being arrested for DRUNK DRIVING". well, he was NOT arrested for drunk driving - he got a ticket for having "trace" alcohol and being a minor.

pdh, didn't know if you knew but MSU's AD took a very quick exit before the season?

I'm not surprised Cam is a target, Meyer has had one of his worst seasons and Cam might have been another Tebow for him - but then one will never know if the decision Cam made to leave FL could have built a better player ultimately. Hopefully this will be resolved soon.

Thanks to all who watched the defensive struggle in Ann Arbor.  Congrads to Miami, OSU ::CowboySmiley::,AU, Badgers, the Ducks, and Neb. Bean I can't understand why they would take that chance and go for two in your game? Sorry Bama fans, wish Michigan had your defense!
Bean all I can say is, if you never put pressure on the QB any high school QB will complete the pass. In some defense of the Wolverine defense the entire secondary are freshmen. We lost one senor CB to the NFL and 2 CB's to injury for the season. So anyone wanting to play right out of high school or junior college give RR a call.
OK here is the box score for the Ill and Mich game. Since it set some records I will give you all a laugh! Final score 67- 65 Michigan. Their 6th win so we get to see them play over the holidays for your scoring amusement. This was the highest point total in Big Ten history, just great. Michigan had 676 total yards to Illinois's 561 total yards. Robinson had 305 yards passing and 62 rushing 3 TDs and was out for all of the 4th qt. Good news he was just sick and hopefully not a concussion. Forcier finished with 12 of 19 passing for 114 yards and 2 TDs. Michigan also had 5 turnovers, hmm. The defense sacked the QB one time for the game, which was actually the last play for Illinois going for 2. I will need the rest of the weekend to recover! Good luck to all, see ya on Monday. ::monkeywine2::

Thanks for the update Kiwi.. I did not see your finish but heard about it.  Congrats on the Ws everyone.  How bout Les Miles?  Missed that entire game so will have to read about it and check out highlights.

Our game was tough.  Scary tough.  Our QB is nursing a sprained ankle and they wanted to give him a week or two to be 100% so I am sure they never planned to play him.  On Thursday our backup went out with a season ending injury (still haven't disclosed it but he is out) and so we started out 3rd stringer.

Early in the first qtr our 3rd string - now starting QB took a hit to the head and was out.  We played an entire series and scored with our running back running the wildcat formation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  It was unreal.  The kid is great - played some QB in high school.  I was gulping beer at that point.  lolol

We played flat on D - unsure why.  Our stud WR who always tries to do too much ran a punt out of the endzone when he shouldn't have and FUMBLED on the 15 yd line.  We gave them 7 points and the momentum shifted big time.

Iowa St played very well and their coach has some huge balls to call for the two point conversion.  After the game our players said they expected it so they must have seen some tendencies on film.  I am grateful for the W and glad it was just one overtime.  And I am even more grateful that we play Kansas next week... though what the heck... they scored 35 pts in the 4th qtr to come from behind and beat Colorado?  My God.

The Canes pulled it out in the last 60 seconds  (Maryland)  ::MonkeyCheer4::

I was listening to the game on radio in my car. I had to drive past the stadium on my way home (thought I was driving to Kiwi's) -- and was trying to get past before the stadium started letting out. Fortunately for me -- no one was leaving the stadium since it was such a nail biter, game ended just as I passed by.

So -- a win -- and no getting stuck in stadium traffic :-) A good day all around

Sure hope my Dolphins can do the same against Baltimore today   ::MonkeyCheer4::

Congrats to all who won this weekend!

sharon....how 'bout the Canes! Are they Bowl eligible now?

On the Bama-LSU game....I picked LSU to win on another board, and so did a lot of others. I also think Bama could lose to Mississippi State if MSU plays as well as they are capable of playing. The MSU defense is very stout.


Congrats to Tommy Tuberville's team at TTech. Auburn fans still support our Tubby!

Thanks to all who watched the defensive struggle in Ann Arbor.  Congrads to Miami, OSU ::CowboySmiley::,AU, Badgers, the Ducks, and Neb. Bean I can't understand why they would take that chance and go for two in your game? Sorry Bama fans, wish Michigan had your defense!
Bean all I can say is, if you never put pressure on the QB any high school QB will complete the pass. In some defense of the Wolverine defense the entire secondary are freshmen. We lost one senor CB to the NFL and 2 CB's to injury for the season. So anyone wanting to play right out of high school or junior college give RR a call.
OK here is the box score for the Ill and Mich game. Since it set some records I will give you all a laugh! Final score 67- 65 Michigan. Their 6th win so we get to see them play over the holidays for your scoring amusement. This was the highest point total in Big Ten history, just great. Michigan had 676 total yards to Illinois's 561 total yards. Robinson had 305 yards passing and 62 rushing 3 TDs and was out for all of the 4th qt. Good news he was just sick and hopefully not a concussion. Forcier finished with 12 of 19 passing for 114 yards and 2 TDs. Michigan also had 5 turnovers, hmm. The defense sacked the QB one time for the game, which was actually the last play for Illinois going for 2. I will need the rest of the weekend to recover! Good luck to all, see ya on Monday. ::monkeywine2::

It wasn't the highest scoring game in D-1 on Saturday, Navy put up 75 on the board in their game  ::MonkeyEek::

sharon....how 'bout the Canes! Are they Bowl eligible now?

On the Bama-LSU game....I picked LSU to win on another board, and so did a lot of others. I also think Bama could lose to Mississippi State if MSU plays as well as they are capable of playing. The MSU defense is very stout.


Congrats to Tommy Tuberville's team at TTech. Auburn fans still support our Tubby!

I don't think UGA can pull it together enough to battle Auburn, one good game isn't enough to rattle my confidence in your HC or Cam and the team.

I don't underestimate RR's capacity to charm super boosters and they truly hold all the power for or against existing HC's. I am beginning to believe that AD's are nothing more than figureheads.

I'm still wondering what will happen to UNC's Davis and their AD  ::MonkeyNoNo::

I suspect it was grades Bean, he came from Oak Hill and traditionally diversity players end up in those types of prep programs due to grades to begin with. Programs don't make statements about players with academic issues and the NCAA sometimes waits to fully rule on a freshman until they are on campus and in fall camp as well.

None sorry just noticed your response. Personally I think they should keep RR. Just wish they would go out and get a nice solid Defensive Coaching staff. Some of the problem is the all freshmen secondary. They could be helped if there was just a little pressure on any QB. ie a few blitz's here and there.

Post by: nonesuche on November 09, 2010, 10:17:10 PM
Kiwi - I've decided it's easier to hire offensive skill than defensive. I don't think it's a coincidence that the power programs have HC's with strong backgrounds in defense - just look at Auburn and Alabama? RR is a fighter, but WVU was also known more for it's offense than it's defense when RR was HC there. Hopefully he can find a decent DC to fill the gaps by next season.

PDH - the whole Cam thing seems to be so personal now, don't you think? If he was cheating at FL then why on earth was he kept on the team? I think all of this mud slinging is going to splash back all over UF..........

Just shows the perceived dollar values of Heisman's and NC's to produce such ugly battles in the press.

It is a personal vendetta because Auburn is winning with Cam Newton, and the fires have been flamed by ESPN. They should never be allowed back on the Auburn campus.

http://blog.jackaruteonsports.com/football/a-pox-on-all-your-houses.html


PDH - Had a really busy day so just catching up on all the talking heads have put out there today on ESPN. This entire debacle really does touch upon all of the corrupt and greedy elements present in college football today.

Forgive my diatribe but I think so many don't know the reality of college football stars....or how programs really function

At this point and perhaps never, will we know if it's accurate that Cam was caught cheating. I can attest that I was never surprised by the laptop incident. If people believe that players have funds to buy new laptops while on scholarship then they are smoking crack. Yes it probably wasn't wise to buy one out of the back of the trunk of a car, but if you find a used one on Craig's List and buy it - you run the same risk. Tossing it out the window as he did was done in total panic, which didn't surprise me either. Was it foolish to a degree - yes, but it happens with immature young players.

The fact UF allowed these supposed reports to radiate from even those on their periphery is breaking federal privacy laws for academic records. Meyer's crazy display of announcing his retirement and then changing his mind, had all the earmarks of political play as well. I thought that then and I believe it even more now, there is a backstory there that I feel could be very revealing.

Additionally to think that MSU would lure a top player over Auburn is ludicrous. Sorry and nothing against Cullen, but MSU's performance over the last four years is indicative of issues competing with or without a Cam Newton. I wish Cullen luck with those challenges for I don't wish MSU anything but success, but it's time for some reality here.

Even Stoop has stated they saw nothing irregular in their recruitment of Newton as well, and Stoop is bigger than Cullen in terms of reputation and program. So who do I tend to believe? Also MSU has admitted that when the NCAA requested further documentation of the supposed incident they reported in January, that MSU drug their feet for six months and finally providing a "partial" for this request in July? Something very hinky here..........very.

Oddly enough MSU's AD leaped over to Oregon in September and it was a big surprise to the administration for we know someone quite well who worked on his staff. Oregon was a great move for him but the timing of all of this is bothersome.

I think few of these SEC coaches expected Newton to do as well as he has, but I credit his HC and also the rest of the Tiger team - there's plenty of talent on that team.

Perhaps some of this is the Reggie Bush/Heisman legacy, many of us here wanted the NCAA to catch Bush but we also wanted them to catch USC and I haven't seen much in repercussions to date for USC. Beyond disappointing particularly when they embraced having our least fave HC Kiffen leap from TN back to USC.

If the SEC wanted to steal the Heisman away from Newton they may have already succeeded, for it seems the truth is inconsequential. Newton obviously wasn't ESPN's pick, right? Since they think they can rule college football I am assuming either the world will allow them to get away with this, or someone will finally stop their rape and pillage in college football.

I fear perception is reality, when it's ESPN talking.

The other thing I'd like to say (based upon son's previous and current experience) is that fans need to understand that many of these "stars" grow up in homes without basic comforts such a running water, much less two parents, or enough food to eat. They often have high schools that don't require they attend classes or provide tutoring or support for learning disabilities.

How we can expect them to leap into college football, handling all the stresses of football and academic demand is naive to believe they can. Cam and many others have proven this and when supposed top academic programs such as UNC's have cheating allegations, it's even more naive to think players across college football have struggles meeting the academic demands.

Deep breath - I'm finished. Apologies for my rant.

Go None Go!  To be honest... I haven't read much on the Cam situation because it is hearsay at this point and like you said... ESPN has no credibility with me.  News sources used to have to confirm stories prior to printing but... not anymore.

Re Urban Meyer's retirement.. I have read more than once that he was planning on leaving but that he got wind that they were talking to Bob Stoops and he wanted no part of that and came back.  At the time Bob was under major heat from the fans in OK for losing in the MNC game and said to be fed up.  I have no clue if there is truth to it but I've seen it a few times.  Regardless, something happened to make Urban come back that quickly.

THANK YOU NONESY!!!!!!!  ::MonkeyDance:: ::MonkeyDance:: ::MonkeyDance::


Cam is a good kid. He made mistakes, owned them, and paid the price. He spent time in exile at Blinn JC, and he grew up. His dad is a good man. They do not deserve this character assassination.
There is NO RENOVATED CHURCH. It's still unusable, and run down. Cam drives a scooter around campus because it's cheap. His older brother was in the NFL, so the family has some money...just not a lot. He is no Reggie Bush. His family still lives in the SAME HOUSE in the suburbs. There's no fancy cars and NO BLING.

When this all blows up, it will change college football and the media forever.
 
This is why I despise ESPN. They do have an agenda. They NEVER went after Reggie Bush and Pete Carroll and USC and the Pac 10 the way they are going after us. And there was NEVER any doubt RB was paid, No one tried to hide it. They just refused to talk to the NCAA. It was out there in plain site but the media looked the other way.

People should write the advertisers of ESPN and let them know how displeased they are with the rumor mongering and destruction of a young man's dreams. ::MonkeyMad::

Just a side note, there is a high school kicker in Mississippi that was kicked off his team for wearing pink cleats given to him by his grandmother a cancer survivor. The school district is going to court on the side of the coach. Sorry I don't know how to bring it over. Since the we lost one our own SM, thought Id mention it prior to the weekend games here.

PDH - I didn't realize his older brother played in the NFL but unless you are a 'star' in the NFL, the majority have contracts that hover around 200K annually - after you pay your agent and your taxes that really isn't a lot of $$$ to spread around. As for pastors or ministers, they are dependent upon the tithe budget for their compensation and in economies like this, I suspect many are doing with far less. Scholarships provide for meager room/board off campus, your cell phone and maybe one dinner out per week. Been there, done the math for son's.

As for writing ESPN,  I wish that I think that would help but I think it's more likely they love stirring the pot because it increases hits to their site as well as fools willing to pay to sign up for their ESPN insider  ::MonkeyNoNo:: They use those hits they track to convince advertisers that their exposure is on their site is worth it. Today it appears Doritos is the front page advertiser of choice on ESPN - I feel if campaigns were targeted to ESPN advertisers then perhaps there could be an impact.

Bean - I had not heard that theory regarding Urban's retire/not-retire power play........I've heard others but not that one so thanks for sharing.

Kiwi - I'm not sure anything I write has great value but thanks for your kind words. You have my permission to share. I hope RR has spent this week doing more than scratch his head about how to bring the big D in your next game !!!

none - The church only had enough work done to keep it from being condemned again....like bringing electrical up to code so that it wasn't a fire hazard. No massive, expensive remodeling at all. It's my understanding that Cecil got most of the money from his son in the NFL. He had the money, per his meeting with the city council SEVERAL MONTHS BEFORE any recruitment started. The church is a red herring.

I agree with you about ESPN. That's why I said I'm gonna target their advertisers. There are also some facebooks out there such as Fire Thayer Evans. Auburn people are very angry at what's been done to Cam and to our reputation as well.

This kinda says it all about how the Auburn family feels right now...

I am not trying to minimize the injustice of Cam's tribulations -but, look at what happened to Dez Bryant at OSU last year. He was NEVER proved of illegal deeds, but if we played him under "suspicion" -- we would have to forfeit games. You are therefore "guilty" before due justice -- it sucks!!  ::MonkeyMad::

I hate no spell check or "edit" abilities! Dez was only under "suspicion" of wrong doing -- not remotely proved!

GL to everyone today!!!!!!

I know Wreck is playing TX and he always gets quiet before big games. GL - trust me you can do this.  ::CowboySmiley::

PDH's Auburn plays Georgia DAWGS

Cuz, Kiwi, GO, KTF, others...???

Anyway... healthy games, with good calls to everyone. 

We play KS another PPV game.  I am headed out of town to meet up with a dear friend to watch the game at a great steak house.  So I won't be peeking in this evening. 

GO SM TEAMS GO.

we have new construction in our neighborhood and they keep hitting our trunk lines  ::MonkeyMad:: so internet has been in/out - in/out all week!

wreck - you are exactly right about Bryant and the presumption of guilt and not innocence. One would think someone/anyone would take ESPN and Feldman to task over this. They don't want to see these players succeed, just feed off them like vultures !!

Sharon - I'm watching your game in between working on stuff I need to get done and it looks like you're doing great thusfar, why on earth GT hired Grobe for defense I'll never understand. Whatever mojo he had earlier in his career has definitely gone bye-bye. I also tried writing you back via email three times and get kicked offline before I can ever get it sent. I'll try later - I actually typed up my post on notepad so that I could just cut and paste to get it off quickly so if this post appears just know I got lucky  ::MonkeyHaHa::

Did anyone see all three service academies will likely be bowl eligible? Can't remember the last year that happened....

PDH - I'll be watching and pulling for you. Thanks for posting the links to the Auburn nation video. I just am not sold on MSU being honest for what other 'issues' could they have had in the off-season to prohibit following up with requested discussions by the NCAA with their staff? They mention basketball ???? WTF ?????? It all angers me so much for I think it's increasingly apparent that the time lag was either second thoughts about what they were doing - or time to manufacture evidence or get their story straight. It also doesn't make sense that if Cam truly was going to the highest bidder, that this was never advanced to Stoops too. I mean if you're marketing a commodity you market to all, not just one. So I'm still pretty furious that the odor on all of this stinks.......I also saw that his older brother was cut from the Jaguars in training camp, which just means he was never getting rich in the NFL but trying to get his foot in the door. Just blows my mind how many assume every player in professional sports is making a killing.........

Cuz - thanks for the kudos for son, they have one more game which due to weather has now been postponed.........praying they can win it and finish with a stellar season. Belated Happy Birthday my friend and I expect Petrino will handle UTEP quick, hard, and fast  ::MonkeyHaHa::

Bean - hoping you pull off the win again today and good luck to all of our SM teams, we're pulling for the wins !!  ::MonkeyCheer4::

today's game was almost embarrassing to watch.  2nd string running back runs for 170 yards, they take him out and 3rd string back gets nearly 150 yards.  4th string freshman QB comes in and throws a 70 yard touchdown pass to another freshman who never plays.  Then the 4th string QB runs a bootleg trying to run out the clock and Indiana completely lays down and lets him walk for a TD from 25 yards out.

I think I was at the game the last time we scored this many points.  I was a kid and we played Marquette when they had a football program.

Well Kiwi, hopefully you will be kind to us next week.  I would like to see us run the table these last two games.  We should have our first string running back returning as well as our top two receivers who really didn't play today.   This team has surprised me since we lost our top defensive player in the first game and have had the most injuries I can remember in a long time.

good luck to the rest of you..   I plan on trying to watch a few of the games yet today.

None- The defense actually didn't give up a TD today. All scores for Purdue were off 5 turnovers, in a driving cold rain. Actually there were 10 total turnovers for both sides.  Second half we alternated QB's on each series.

I'm sure he'll be pulling for his good friend McElroy, and all his former team mates. That's certainly understandable.

Congrats again Klaas and Bean too  ::monkeywine2::

Texasmom - congrats to TCU, what a great and exciting season your team has had !  ::monkeywine2::

PDH - son's perspective has transitioned to the coaching, it's how he views every game now, even both alma-mater's. He's been intrigued by Chizik's capability to push AU so fast and so far. Of course he's always hoping his friends do well, whatever their endeavor, but he's definitely a may the best team win man. He was excited his team won again last weekend, a 10 win season thusfar !!

 ::MonkeyCheer4::

I also saw the shootings reported in Hattiesburg, one has to wonder why players feel the need to visit risky places but they do........just sad and tragic and I hope all four will physically be ok.

Well my respect for Nascar has gone up another notch to a whole new level! He is so smart!
It is an amazing achievement for a coach to turn around a program in disarray in only 2 seasons. Even if we don't win another game what Coach Chizik is doing down at Auburn is amazing. The coaching staff he put together is brilliant and the recruiting has been outstanding. Somehow all that has gotten lost with all the effort by the media to ruin Cam Newton and Nick Fairley.

Congratulations to Nascar's team on the 10 wins!! That is amazing! ::MonkeyCheer4::

Bean - thanks so much for the support for son, means a great deal. I did tell him the CEO was moving on so to tap Bo on the shoulder  ::MonkeyHaHa:: In our dreams............!

PDH - I was thinking today, as painful as the entire Cam and now Fairley media accusations are, that perhaps on the back side of this (when it ends) that even ESPN will be held accountable for feeding off these frenzies. We can hope, right?

I read where one of the southern Miss players is now paralyzed from the waist down, another will likely never speak again for his vocal cords were sliced in half by the bullet. Even if they were out partying to suffer these types of permanent injuries to their quality of life is just horrifying. Perhaps it's time for every college football program to include in their orientation for their players, a review of all of this in terms of a learning track, so that they are all fully aware of the risks. Something has to be done now......

On a lighter note I had to post this today, daughter sent it to me when a Bama friend sent it to her. Oh to make a mistake of throwing into double coverage for Coach Saban is going to publicly treat you like a bad child  ::MonkeyWink::

nonesy - The whole Nick Fairley thing is a made up issue. He got tackled and knocked into the GA QB's shin.....not his knees. And on the other hit, Nick was already in the air when Murray let go of the ball, and he couldn't stop. He didn't see that the ball was gone in time. He weighs 300 lbs, so it's not like there was much he could do. It was only a couple of seconds late, but he got flagged for it, and that was OK. He didn't start out to make a late hit.

This is what his team mate had to say in support of Nick:
"College football is a full speed game. To reach the pinnacle you can't hold back between the whistles" "If you don't understand this you've either never played the game or placed at a high enough level to excel."   Lee Zimba on 11-16-10

All the Auburn hate is just unprecedented and very undeserved.  ::MonkeyMad::

A Bama Grad Assist. who used to be an Assist. AD at MSU has been interviewed by the NCAA, and inside info has it that the FBI removed some computers from the Bama athletic complex on Friday. Bama says no comment.

The plot thickens..... ::MonkeyEek::

That Southern Miss story is just heartbreaking. But we hear about this kind of thing just about every season. I wish these kids would be a little more careful with their lives, but they have no concept of danger at that age. Clubs, drinking, and weapons are an awful mix. It's always trouble for somebody.I have those kids in my prayers. I feel awful for them.


That Saban tape made the rounds down here too. I just don't like his coaching style. He always seems to be on the edge of losing complete control of his temper. It makes me nervous for those kids. I guess they don't mind it.


Bo Pellini and Nascar would be a great pairing! beans...make a call!!! ::MonkeyHaHa::

I agree !! Bean please make the call !!!  ::MonkeyKiss::

I watched the entire game last week and the replays that have been sent all over the internet of Fairley's hit - and also the replays of the over-the-edge hits delivered on him by UGA as well. It was an emotional and tense game, this stuff happens. I think the tenor pitch by UGA with all the protest probably has much to do with the fact that this game determined their bowl eligibility. With the way UGA started their season and the absence of suspended Green, that really determined early on they were risking their bowl eligibility IMO.

Don't know if you knew this, but that GA's puter might have also been reviewed additionally because the NCAA had already protested Saban's many "interns" before the season even began. It seems he had several more than the NCAA allows, for they only allow 2 GA's and 2 quality control. I also feel sure that GA didn't welcome the scrutiny or issues following him from MSU either.

All that's coming out now about Bill Bell and Kenny Rogers should play very poorly for MSU and has me wondering if this is why they drug their feet in responding back to the NCAA post the initial report in January? Why are former players there so involved in recruiting ????? It's widely known that former players and/or boosters cannot approach or discuss recruiting with recruits. I'm guessing those are rules that MSU feels they aren't accountable for? Or have they opened pandora's box?

It also seems staff at MSU have not provided concrete evidence yet of Cam's father ever stating directly to them in word, phone call, or text that there was a 'price' for Cam. Isn't it ironic to hear Bell's cell phone containing the incriminating texts are unavailable because his cell phone has water damage?

Anyway, perhaps the FBI can get to the bottom of this, for it's time to stop the media madness.

PDH, as for Saban smacking his QB on the behind on national TV, I do think it makes him look a bit ridiculous.

I read it and thought it was a great idea.  I'm a lurker over there though because that case has worn me out.  I said it all already and ALE just pisses me off.  I am with Wreck... it doesn't matter if the bone belongs to Natalee (except to her family) because nothing will be done about it.  I am counting on Peru to make sure he gets his payback.

So who is everyone playing this week?

We play TX A&M.  Wreck plays KS right?  That's all I got.  Good luck to all.  Play safe and fair.  ::monkeywine2::

I don't want Aruba even attempting to try Joran. They will try to spin it as though they are the heroes. Let Joran die in Peru with Natalee at home in Alabama to rest.

Yeah you are right.  Figures we'd get them with a new life and our QB still gimpy.   I am already nervous.  Yes we want to play you for all the marbles at the end.  And yes I think Auburn is off this week because they play Bama next week.  I can't keep up with the Cam situation.. seems the investigation actually started with Colonial Bank failure and Lowder.

i see a lot of people think if the jawbone is indeed natalee's that it was a plant (btw.....hubby thought the same thing right away)......wouldn't the forensic testers be able to tell if the bone had been emersed in salt water for a long time...or buried in sand for a long time? just got me to thinking...and yes.... i hope it is hers for all our sakes but i sure as hell don't want aruba to get joran.

I keep hoping that since Peru hasn't capitulated to Joran's demands thusfar and fended off Aruba's attempts to meddle, that they will stay the course and keep him there.

Miss you - good luck against Ole Miss but I feel sure you'll win that one

GO- comgrads Its been since 1994 since they won in Ann Arbor. On a positve note Robinson past the record for QB's with 1500 yrds rushing and I believe 2500 yrds passing. His season totals are slightly higher than Newtons but playing on a team with the worst total defense below 100th in the nation, can't help in any voting. GO maybe next year!
Just a rumor but the AD may be out soon.

sorry for another loss for you kiwi, I expect Bean's been yelling at her TV much tonight as well.

I have chocolate truffle cake for the dawghouse, hope a choco fix will help. I've been rolling truffles with fresh raspberry centers all night - my eyes are blurry......

Looks like cuz's team put up another win, MSU had another loss. I still think there is a big story there and with Urban too, as it relates to all the accusations against Cam. FL pulled off a big win but against App State?

College football is never dull...........one big roller coaster of a season once again.

Well, Frijole -- you all got hosed last night. I'm usually not one for conspiracies, but 16 penalties against Nebraska to 2 against A&M is VERY shaky. (especially the "roughing the QB" call)

Wreck - thanks for confirming what I saw last night... those refs had it IN for us.  They were the same refs that did our other worse performances:  Texas and IA State.  I will leave it at that.

The shit has hit the fan.  There are rumors that both Carl and Bo Pelini are suspended for our next game.  Taylor Martinez quit the team.  Bo had to go visit the chancellor regarding his behavior.  There was a WHOLE lot that went on and I am reading like crazy to figure out what is true and what is not.  I will refrain from commenting until I feel I am giving you the truth.  But it has been insane.  The only thing I know is that we at least deserved to go into overtime last night.  Hell our starting QB was reinjured and couldn't run, our 2nd string is OUT and our 3rd stringer went in and did his best but it wasn't enough but we still were in it. 

I will let you know Wreck.

I think the wheels just came off in the 4th Q psychologically with the interceptions sharon. It's hard to describe how physical and fast VT is, as compared to most others in the ACC. The game proved what a good match UM and VT were, either one could have won that game. UM's is clearly moving back into prominence, next season should be very exciting.

Bean - I have to ask how offensive was Bo's exchange with Martinez as compared to even the video I posted earlier of Saban's rant and spanking of a player???  Poking a player in the collarbone IMO pales in comparison to spanking a player like a child - the latter is humiliating and degrading.

I can tell you that one time and one time only, in one of son's high school basketball games the refs were so biased that post the game I marched up to them and let them have it. I am sure they laughed at the mom taking it upon herself to lecture them, but doggone it we had more injuries in that game due to the poor officiating - I was furious. When it's so blatant as it obviously was in your game, you start to wonder if the world's gone crazy? I bet your Dad dreaded a parent like me though  ::MonkeyHaHa:: I never did it again, wanted to but didn't like people knowing what my angry face at it's worst looked like  ::MonkeyHaHa::

Post by: Frijole on November 22, 2010, 12:00:12 AM
OK... will do my best... lots going on.  Yes - Martinez is on the team and did not quit.

From what I gather Martinez' best friend is his Dad.  That is good except I guess the coaches are challenged constantly on what plays they should use to best utilize his son.. in other words the dad is too involved.  To the point where TM has been reprimanded previously for texting his dad during team functions.  OK...

When TM went down last night he was instructed to ride the John Deere into the locker room to be checked out.  He refused to ride it.  He took his time walking to the LR and found his phone and called his Dad.  The medical staff were left to wait.  Bo was mad at him for not being in the game (his head) and told him to get his head into the game and that if he ever phoned his dad during a game when his team was waiting on him to be xrayed etc with a game on the line it'd be the last time.  And yes there were F bombs in there.  When Pelini walked away TM said "Fn Bitch".  That set BP off.

The son, the dad, the coach and the AD all gathered today to talk.  The rumors started because he was not at practice.  Pelini said at 8pm tonight that TM is with the team.

I also learned that Pelini and the head judge of this crew have not hit it off and it goes back to 2008 so he knew it would be a long night.  And it was.  Some Arkansas fans warned us this would happen - they lived it when they left the SWC for the SEC.  They were right.  So next up is Colorado.  I have no idea if TM will be healthy enough to play. 

Thats all i got for now.  I hope there is no more news.. just too much drama.

Bean you might find this interesting. I believe the ref's from your game came to KC and did the Cardinal game on Sunday. Arizona had almost the same penalties as Neb had.  They lost 2 challenges without any video showing conclusively, even though the ruling on the field was for AZ. The best had to be a 15yd penalty for the QB tossing the football as a delay of game. Here is how that went. KC call time out as the play started. A linebacker decides to just sack the QB anyway after the whistle 15yrds back from the line of scrimmage. The QB is still holding the ball and tosses it. Hmm no penalty for tackling the QB just a delay of game penalty during a timeout.

Thanks for the link, btw. Cam is that once in a lifetime college athlete who is so gifted that it's almost unbelievable. Watching him this season has been so much fun. I'd love for him to come back for his senior season but with the treatment he's gotten from the media, and from other teams...why would he?
Our opponents are gunning for him because he's so good, and their defenses have been trying to take him out at the knees. He should go on to the NFL and have a great career there before some jealous goober cause him an injury that could jeopardize it all. Our O-Line is the best in the nation, and they have protected him so far, but most are seniors. So I look for Cam to play on Sundays somewhere....and I wish him well.

I can't believe how fast this season has gone by! We're down to our last 3 games....
It's great to be an Auburn Tiger anytime, but 2010 has really been a blessing!


wreck...nothing new to report about Cam. He's eligible to play for Auburn and always has been. The media greatly exaggerated the story, and the real issue is still with Mississippi St.not Auburn. The media can't seem to get that straight. I also believe that Coach Mullen's wife has done some talking out of school and hurt her hubby's career..... ::MonkeyEek::

OK gang... time to play some more games.  Wreck.. big one for you against OU.  PDH has a huge game also.  Who is everyone playing and what day?

We have Colorado which should have been a pushover but with our QB out and our 3rd stringer in.. dunno.  We lost our #1 WR yesterday in practice to a broken foot.  This is the 5th player to break a foot or leg this year.  Strange.  Hope our defense can score. 

Wreck - you'll get a kick out of this.  The student section plans on all waving yellow flags this week.  Also there is a group from the private board planning on all wearing ref uniforms.   ::MonkeyDevil::  I am sure poor Bo will stand meekly on the sideline this week.

None - your sons team play?  They are kicking some butt.  Tell him to go get another W for us.

Good luck to everyone this week!

Oh OK......it was filmed in 2009 so I thought he was already at OSU. He is such an awesome kid. I'm gonna follow his career. I hope he's a Heisman contender in a couple of years.




WOW.....everybody is picking Auburn to lose, and hoping that we do. There has been such an outpouring of hate this week it's almost hard to fathom. Lou Holtz threw an Auburn helmet across the set last Sat. and Auburn fans blew up the phone lines complaining about how disrespectful that was. He's just a slobbering old fool. And a hypocrit. He left 3 schools in trouble with the NCAA for violations while he was coaching. He cheated everywhere he went.
Auburn did not pay Cam Newton a dime, and all the issues are at MSU and STILL there are people on ESPN and CSS and Fox insinuating that Auburn and Cam are about to get hammered by the NCAA....not gonna happen.
Mark Schlabach just had someone email him and say what a good job he did with the Cam Newton story....what a joke. He has yet to get it right. His reporting has been full of misinformation and insinuations just like Pat Forde and that Schad jerk.
The LA Times had an article stating that Auburn should lose the Iron Bowl for the good of college football. WTH??? Cam and Auburn have done nothing wrong!
Cam is eligible to play. The bad guys are from Mississippi State University. That school is in trouble. Florida is in trouble. Cam did not have academic issues at Florida. Blinn College made a statement about Cam being totally clean academically when he transferred there from Florida. They would not have accepted him otherwise. But the media is not listening to the truth. They don't want to broadcast the truth because then they'd have to admit they reported a bunch of lies.
It is truly bizarre the way the hate has grown, fed by the media, just because Cam Newton is the best college player of his generation, and he happens to be at Auburn. I knew how sleazy ESPN and the media could be, but I have never seen anything so out of control as this .
I am totally disgusted by the media, and especially ESPN, Fox Sports and the New York Times. It's just shameful.
 ::MonkeyMad:: ::MonkeyMad:: ::MonkeyMad:: ::MonkeyMad:: ::MonkeyMad:: ::MonkeyMad::

I hope Cam Newton's lawyer is taking note. Heads are gonna roll. He's already said he has Florida's address. I bet he has a few more.....

PDH... hang in there and remember that when no one says you can do it you fight harder.  It motivates.  The press - not just sportscasters - have all become ratings whores and are no classier than TMZ paps.  Bo Pelini was the target this week.  What is sad is they failed to mention in most cases the officiating which was the worst I have ever seen.  Even A&M fans came to our boards to apologize for it this week.  At this point all you guys can do is keep on winning and winning and winning. 

I know its hard to ignore it and it has to just kill you but trust me... most good college football fans know that those guys are full of it.  ESPN's glory days ended years ago.  You need for Kiffin to do something stupid and the attention will go there. ha.  Oops  Mark May just said Auburn will win!

Positive note - we are retiring #93 to honor Mr. Suh tomorrow.  Our hero is coming home for the occasion.  Should be fun.

Wreck I was just watching Lou Holtz. Don't be too upset he could have done the same thing for OU. My dad had only a few comments, wasn't that the team we've watch a few times and they were very good!
Pdh- all I can say is try Nones cake and everything will be better. After a Michigan and AZ Cardnals weekend I thought I was going to blow a gasket. The idea of the cake really helped. AU has had a fab year. Even if it ends I've enjoyed watching and actually having a team I was rooting for win. Just saying I was in that same place last weekend.

PDH - son is onsite for the game and excited about the match-up. He called me earlier today and said it's not often you get to see such an emotionally charged game and it heightens everything, and that you cannot underestimate the emotions with the players - how they manage it and as Bean posted - if it raises your motivation and translates onto the field. His team is done for the season but they have a big combine on Monday - those of you here who know where he is will understand the importance of who will be there. So he flies back out tonight and back to work ! I'm just glad that after so many years of dedication as a player that he can sit in the stands and enjoy an epic match-up ! He's earned it.

Good luck to all the SM teams playing this week and I'm back to baking non-stop for the moment.

Thanks for the kudos on the cake, it was the kind of endeavor you're not sure you can make yours look as good as a real pasty chef but I think we did  ::MonkeyWink:: Plus it was so tasty !!

This week I have an assortment of cookies, PDH grab a few before the game starts, although I'm a bit concerned about you having a sugar 'high' going into this !!  ::MonkeyHaHa::

Homemade raspberry/lemon curd tarts, signature shortbread cookies dipped in chocolate, lime rosettes, and cheesecake bars ! Something for everyone !

Red - I think Bama was not prepared for the adjustments that Auburn made during halftime but I also think the 'spirit' of the Auburn team perhaps had more perseverance? It was a battleground of a game and I think the score reflects how close the overall talent quotient was on both teams.

PDH - I guess Lou might have to eat some crow.....I also fear that the allegations will only heighten now that Auburn has won and possibly in the NC. Hold onto your hat, take a deep breath, this could continue to be a rocky ride. Enjoy the win  ::monkeywine2::

Archie Manning is on the post-game show so hopefully this will be a realistic and respectful commentary.

OK I have pretty much HAD IT with Beebee the Big 12-2 commissioner.  He is a total ahole.  They did not even bother to bring the Big 12 north trophy to the game because "they were scared".  For crying out loud.... Pelini and crew are all bark and no bite... like Nebraska is a risk to flipping 'hurt you' when you hand out a trophy.

So I guess there is no ceremony.. Beebee you are a weenie, a prick, and an absolute waste of human being.

This has me just livid... I wasn't kidding... Beebe is a prick.  Quote:

Big 12 Commissioner Dan Beebe did not attend Friday’s game in Lincoln.

In fact, the Big 12 had no representatives present to honor Nebraska with a Big 12 North trophy after Nebraska's 45-17 victory over Colorado clinched the north title.
Why not?

“They didn’t think it would be safe to send somebody up,” Nebraska athletic director Tom Osborne said, referencing some “nasty” e-mails the Big 12 said it had received from Nebraska fans. “That’s the word I got.”
Osborne added: “You can call Beebe and ask him.”


Give me a break... you ever been here?  LOL  Last thing you should worry about is handing us a trophy Dan.  You are as worthless as Aruban Law Enforcement.  Seriously.

son texted there was a lot of disappointed fans today and that McElroy has a concussion, not the shoulder injury the analysts related.

Given the classless way Auburn was treated today at BDS....it could not have happened at a better place, and in the way it did.  WAR DAMN EAGLE!  I am really disappointed at all the tricks used by Bama. Not allowing a Tiger Walk? We had one anyway. And we had two pre-game Tiger Walks too,at the hotel,just because Bama tried to stop it.  Putting our Band up in the top of the stadium away from our fans? They just played louder. And we still did Rammer Jammer. Playing those songs over the PA that were insulting to Cam and his family? Just more motivation to win.
Selling those t-shirts about Cam? Another reason to win in Bama's house...Jordan-Hare West.

Whatever happened to good sportsmanship, and just letting the kids decide the game on the field? What college football has become is being showcased right now at Auburn's expense, and it's a very ugly picture.

I am so proud of this team. They have the whole sports world against them, and they refuse to lose. They have more guts and character than most of the adults around them.

I am proud....more than you can imagine. We now have the media calling Cam's dad a pimp right before the game. Actually used that word.
I'm happy about the win, but I am sickened by what's going on around my team. It's been so ugly, and it's about to get worse because of the loss to Bama, and the potential for Auburn to win the BCS....as if they haven't hurt Cam enough.

Bama fans were waving dollar bills in the stadium today. I'm calling them out. Totally classless and very unsportsman-like. They had Cam hate signs all over. Completely disgusted by what I saw.

Congrats to Oregon, it was an exciting game to watch until the 3rd Q when the Ducks slammed the door shut. I think what will be interesting if Auburn faces them in the NC, is how both teams are 4th Q specialists? I am guessing it could have the potential to be a nail biter to the end!

PDH - I think the good news is that even with all the public taunts and slights, your team held it together.

I do think this season will go down as one of the biggest drama-fests ever. It's wearing me out so I can only imagine what it's doing to these players.

PDH & wreck - I so hope the two of you can work this out. Not to offend you wreck but you snapped off at me early on in the season, which is why I try to avoid any discussion of your team. That said, I wish you and your team well always. Honestly I value this thread and it's spirit too much to create dissension among us.

I have to say that what I have learned internally via my son about college football is very troubling at times. Like PDH, I found Bama's leadership allowing those songs to be played prior to the game appalling. I know they can't control all of what the fans do with a crowd of 115K + for honestly having attended more than a few games there, the security is overworked trying to keep the alcohol out. But even son related some of this was shocking and uncalled for and he's pretty tolerant just due to his own conditioning to tune so much out as a player.

College football is in trouble, ethics and rules simply aren't respected but it's not just one program, it's many programs. Furthermore, all of the rumors which proved to be true about Reggie Bush circulated while he was a senior yet there was not a public lynching such as we're seeing with Cam Newton & his family.

USC was an ESPN fave as is Bama and even Boise. There is no denying it and I have a real issue with any media outlet trying to influence programs to this degree and like PDH I'm glad that Leach is suing them. ESPN isn't the NCAA and it's bad enough they have fiscally raped college football as they have.

These are big issues and important issues. If you love college football then you have to care and recognize this.

sharon - I swear I did not see that loss coming, still blows my mind a bit for I don't think any analyst predicted it either? Just one more instance of how competitive college football has become. With UM, USF, UF, and FSU the recruiting will become a real dogfight.

GO - watching some of your team's game and they are looking great !

kiwi - sigh, I knew Tressell would be tough to face. I just hope RR can learn from this season and get Michigan back in shape by next season. I just made espresso dark chocolate snowcap cookies and I'll bring extra to the dawghouse.

cuz  - no score yet in your game but still pulling hard for you !

texasmom - wishing TCU great mojo this afternoon !

Lordy, Duke has scored and held UNC scoreless in the 1st Q - that may be a great rivalry game with two programs less than 10 miles apart !

More rivalry games today.  Kiwi gets to play against his fav team tOSU.  Cuz has a big one against Lucky Les.  GO your team will kill NW.  Fl vs Fl State.  OK State vs OK... winner plays Big 12 championship.  GL Wreck!!

Congrats to the winners yesterday.  Oregon and Auburn each have another big game to play but I do believe they will be at the dance.  Should be an interesting match up. 



Thanks, .... Don't need to kill..  Just need to win for the roses

Figure of speech GO.   ::MonkeyDevil::  And you went beyond Kill today.. it was a bloodletting.

Thanks all, yes it was sort of a brutal game.  I think our top running back was a bit ticked off that he only got to run 3 times today.  He was last years Big Ten offensive player of the year.  He has been out the past two games with an injury.  The third string running back has scored 8 TD's in the last two games. 

LSU lost so that should move everyone up a bit.  We are about as high as we can go.  No more games left for the Big Ten except for Illinois playing a non conference.

We did shatter our all time scoring average for a single season.  And then Iowa loses to Minn???   surprise there.

I may have to watch OK tonight if we get the game.

GO I still recall when your program was desperate for a QB so enjoy this.

TCU nearly had a score as high as yours too ! Much has changed over the last two weeks in the BCS standings.

Congrats to cuz's hawgs for the great win !!  ::monkeywine2:: Congrats to TCU !

MSU is currently leading against Ole Miss but I'm pulling hard for Ole Miss to win !

UGA should handle Ga Tech easily and they really need a win for Richt is truly under fire.

Old visor head at SCarolina is leading over Clemson heading into the half and no surprise there, but so far that game is much closer than I thought it might be.

Bean, what's your bet on how far up your Huskers move in Monday's polls?

Congrats to Oregon, it was an exciting game to watch until the 3rd Q when the Ducks slammed the door shut. I think what will be interesting if Auburn faces them in the NC, is how both teams are 4th Q specialists? I am guessing it could have the potential to be a nail biter to the end!

PDH - I think the good news is that even with all the public taunts and slights, your team held it together.

I do think this season will go down as one of the biggest drama-fests ever. It's wearing me out so I can only imagine what it's doing to these players.

Good luck today Cuz, I so hope you pull off the win today  ::MonkeyCheer4::

See I like the slamming the door shut part, LOL.  For so many years the Oregon games have been nail biters it's nice to relax in the 4th quarter for a change.

Wow that sounds fantastic. But would you be able to include an important note to cuz. If ever there is an appropriate time, to suggest a digital record be made of the orthodontic casts for Natalee. Her orthodontist should be able to have that done at any large dental lab that has a scanner. I wouldn't let the models out of my site though personally. The digital model could be emailed to anywhere they have dental labs. This is not something that is done routinely or ever for that matter. However, millions of crowns are manufactured and transmitted this way yearly. Impressions of a cast model will not archive and distort over time.

Thanks Bean, it's good to hear of a HC that's getting accolades - this coaching carousel environment is disheartening so good news is welcome!

It appears the verdict from the NCAA is in on Newton although the entire ruling raises more questions IMO. Rogers is really a bad guy and why MSU even associated any of their recruiting with him is a huge red flag. We can't know what "evidence" was reviewed but it appears Newton's father was allowing Rogers to be his mouthpiece. Not a good decision but I have to say I've seen players on son's teams believe rats like Rogers can help them get to the NFL, when they should know better. The allure often overcomes good judgment........

Hopefully MSU has learned a hard lesson from this also, for regardless if someone is a celebrated former player, if they are earning their living as an agent they have no business allowing them to serve as intermediary for any recruit. It appears the State Attorney General in MS is also now investigating Rogers.

I thought this was a good piece on the upcoming game for Auburn vs SCarolina. I know I'll be watching that game on Sat night !

Hi ya None!  Been busy at my new job.  Also trying to keep up with the Husker news.  Big game tomorrow for us.  Am reading now that Taylor Martinez will start and is almost 100%.  Define 100% is what I say!  LOL 

Dan Beebe had our trophy sent by mail to us.   ::MonkeyHaHa::  He's been busy talking with the national press about all those threats.  Nebraska press have not been able to get him on the phone for some reason.  So they started calling the police departments in Dallas (Beebe said they were looking into thousands of threats from NE fans)...  they have no reports or complaints on file.  The guy is a total goon. 

Couple of good games tomorrow.  Good luck to all.

Kiwi - I assumed RR would be safe with that record and progress (assuming he cans some on the D side of the ball)... guess I am wrong huh?  Wow.

None - thanks.  It was a tough game to loss.  Cannot figure out why we didn't take out our QB and play the backup - he would have been able to at least hold onto the lead!  We gave that game away.  Congrats to Oklahoma because they deserved to win.  sigh. 

I gotta tell you I am not sure anyone can stop Cam Newton.  That kid is one special athlete.  Not saying the rest of the team isn't but boy he gives them something very very special.  Does he have a son?  Or a little brother about 3?  Saw a photo of him celebrating after the win with a young kid wearing his jersey and looked just like him.  Cute photo.

Don't know where KTF went but we are playing Washington AGAIN in the HOliday Bowl.  We play them in September again.  Strange.  Would have liked to play someone new.  Oh well..

Bean I was surprised Bo didn't change out your QB too, double sigh. I was pulling hard for you.

I have no idea if Cam has a younger brother, I read he has an older brother who was cut from the NFL this fall - could be he's married with a child? I did note the broadcast filmed his mother in the stands but no sign of his father. Ultimately it appears Cam will go to the NFL in the next draft, or a strong likelihood of that. I may be naive but I think the different styles of play between AU and Oregon will be interesting to watch.....

I think the bowl selections have been interesting........don't know where KTF has been but hopefully he will come back to post.

None... I think I now know why we didn't substitute... our backup is out for the season (knew that) but HIS backup who started the CU game was out due to a concussion!  So our only alternative was a walk on true freshman that hadn't taken a collegiate snap.  Ouch.

Bean under the circumstances his time will be helpful in future competition. Where is the Huskers bowl game?
Surprisingly, the Wolverines are headed for the Gator Bowl. Can't really figure out why they would be selected for that good of a bowl game. We play Miss St. This should be a shoot out with good weather. We should put up the list of bowl games for everyone that posts. Hmm I have three bowl games in Phoenix this year with the NC game between Oregon and Auburn. The Fiesta Bowl and I believe the Insight Bowl in Tempe. I'll look up as many as possible and post them.

The list for the Heisman Trophy is out. Side note Denard Robinson finished with more than  2000 yrds passing and more than 1500 yrds rushing but didn't make the list. Those numbers are higher than when Michael Vic,  won the Trophy. Now that I brought that up he will have 10 and 10 against Miss St.

I thought MA would stay with TX too but I've also think former player/alumni/now HC's aren't judged harder? Sure looks that way at Miami and surely was at Bama.

Stewart at WVU is being "forced out" -- but, he won't go. They name Holgerson as OC and "Head Coach in Waiting" to take over next year when Stewart's contract runs out. Holgerson could have gone as HC just about anywhere - and he ends up in the WVU mess! Strange! He turned down the HC position at Pitt.


Title: Re: FOOTBALL WITH FRIJOLE #3 8/14/10 -
Post by: Frijole on December 16, 2010, 11:20:18 PM
Thanks Wreck... his style just doesn't fit with WVA at all.  Course as HC he can change all that but seems like a strange marriage.  And I really pity him having to work for a guy who he is replacing.  Talk about awkward.  Is that AD on drugs?  Strange.

So will TX ever announce any hires?  I'd be nervous.  Now OKState will be pursuing OCs as well. 

I read that Muschamp won't have 100% say in his staff... since former HC is there in an admin role... he will be there as 'an advisor'.  That would suck too.  Oh well for a couple million I could put up with some grief.  ::MonkeyDevil::

cuz I think Petrino realizes he's in a good place and with the success they had this season, he's positioned well

There is an interesting backstory to the Stewart replacement story at WVU. It appears Stewart was at a speaking engagement, the AD called in his OC and fired him, then called in Stewart after to relate the new 'deal'. Some are saying that Holgerson will bolt for another HC position in a year if he's offered a better one - so should be interesting to watch.......

Bean, I wouldn't want the deal Muschamp signed up for, he really isn't going to have the control he needs to revamp the Gators. Smacks of being careful what you wish for.

wreck, son spoke with an asst coach there this week by phone regarding another matter - Stewart was not told 2 weeks ago. That's just the AD doing damage control around how he handled it. It seems the AD felt replacing Stewart with a "big bang" manner would increase ticket sales which have been lower since RR left

WOW.  You got to admit... with you QB and Blackmon they'd be scary good with Leach.  Wonder if his ego could take being #2 on totem pole though.  Interesting though.

I checked on TX forum to see about coaching hires and no news there yet.  HOWEVER someone said that a major scandal is about to hit.  Meltdown.  What a disappointment this season has been for that team.

I swear with all the scandals someone, anybody please clean up college football! I'm with PDH, pay the players as if it's a job and then force the NCAA to put a cap on coach earnings, and then we might make some progress!

That is weird.  I just listened to Leach on the radio this a.m. and they asked him and he said he hadn't been contacted but is open.  The press is too quick to pull the trigger on stories.

We just lost our linebackers coach to Indiana.  He will be the DC.  Kind of surprised as he doesn't have that much coaching experience.  Glad they didn't take some of our more seasoned D coaches.. but this guy is full of fire and should be great some day.

Wreck... fyi we are still hoping to also be looking for an OC.  I doubt Pelini would fire ours though he should.  Right now we are just praying he lands a HC gig. 

I'm watching Ohio vs Troy and after all these years it still seems weird to see Solich wearing green instead of red.  He wasn't our best coach ever but he got screwed getting fired after 9 wins.

With Leach -- who knows????!! As far as Holgerson at WVU -- I'm guessing that it is a combination of Stewart's version and the AD's version! It doesn't sound good - either way.

As far as the next OC at Oklahoma State -- I think our fans are in unison that we want to see a "wide open" attack like we had this year!  ::CowboySmiley::

I was thinking today that for Maryland to force Fridge out when he just won coach of the year for the ACC - has anything like this ever happened before? You have to wonder how any coach in good standing with an 8 - 4 record is being forced out? I had the thought at the start of the season when Maryland wasn't winning many games that with Fridge not having great seasons of late, that he might be at risk. That said, it struck me today that this is yet another example of how ruthless the benchmarks are in this day and age.

We fired Solich after 9 wins and right after the victory at Colorado.  The AD didn't even go to the locker room or shake Frank's hand after a big win.  The AD had a vision.  He said "we will not bow down to mediocrity".  He wanted to change the culture.  He about killed the program.  Frank wasn't Tom Osborne but he was not a loser either.

My point is that this isn't a new thing.  ADs get greedy.  Lose site of what got them there.  In the case of Maryland the same is true.  They just canned a coach who got them out of mediocrity.  Sad.  I hope he gets another opportunity at a better school soon.

The AD at Maryland is new, Kay Yow's sister was the AD there and moved to NCSU this year, so I guess the new one is making his mark as you referenced does happen. That said, I think it's a bad perception for them but so many fans like Leach, if they hire him they might overlook it. I wonder how many of McNeill's staff will move from ECU to Maryland if Leach is hired - suspect a few will, particularly the OC. They were a very tight group at TT.

Son says Fridge's weakness was recruiting but most of the ACC schools face that same challenge, you just cannot land that SEC deep south talent in ACC football programs - but I guess some dream that they can.

Heard Leach again yesterday on his radio show and he still isn't talking about the MD job... I got the feeling he is negotiating still and maybe even looking at other options?  As Wreck said... with Leach "who knows".  He walks to his own drummer no doubt.
Didn't realize there was a new AD at MD... you are right... that explains it.

bean - thanks for the help shoveling, lord by nightfall on xmas we had a foot of snow but thankfully no ice storm. We lost power at around 2am and were without for a full day, gas fireplaces are a waste of space in when you truly need to get warm. Gratefully my brother and SIL gave us those upscale snuggies from Brookstone for xmas which was the only way we kept warm! Photos below.....

sharon - in comparison to PA, NJ, & NY our snow was minor, but we are covered with black ice on the streets and no warming trend and few snow tools, so hoping the temps climb back up soon.

I hope everyone had great holidays full of love & family.

I agree some of the bowl games aren't too interesting, although WVU's showing against NCSU surely didn't play well for Stewart. Geez, they had the worst 4th quarter when the wheels really came off. I confess I went to bed after that one and didn't watch anymore games.

Lots being said on ESPN about Wisconsin possibly being the best all-around college team, hope GO is smiling......

so is wreck break-dancing post the win by his team? congrats on the win  ::monkeywine2::

Fridge surely put an exclamation point on the new AD's firing of him, didn't he? He said he felt "belittled" by how all of this was handled and I agree with him.

NCAA is speaking out today regarding OSU and Auburn, I can't recall a public statement like this in a long time

http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=5966515
It was a nice win for us --- our first 11 win season ever. We are all shocked that our WR Blackmon showboated across the goal line - it was so out of character for him. He says it was because there was only 8 seconds left in the half and he wanted to "kill the clock".
No comment on the NCAA "statement".

wreck, isn't Blackmon the #1 rated wr currently? I think a little celebrating wasn't so bad  ::MonkeyWink::

As for the NCAA article, I had an interesting conversation with son tonight over dinner. He's a pretty good cook now! Anyway, he said it was irregular for the OSU players to be allowed to play, in light of the punishments for similar violations on other teams this season. He also said that some coaches have related to him that there really wasn't an ounce of validation that Cam knew of any $$ discussions, and the only evidence that there were supposed discussions with his father, were he-said by 3rd parties outside of MSU's staff. When compared to Reggie Bush and his parent's $$$ for years - I think Cam Newton deserves the benefit of the doubt.

Son also raised a point I don't think many outside of the programs realize, it's nearly impossible for any player in any program to live off scholarship $$$, at least anywhere outside of a campus dorm. I know I provided at least $300 to 400/month to son beyond his scholarship every month and trust me, he had only the basics - no high living at all. We both agree that a stipend for living expenses (even a PC/laptop) should be a given, the NCAA needs to support that change.

How about Tebow putting some egg on some faces this week too? He's a real lesson in believing in yourself and staying true to who you are.

PDH we miss you -

Blackmon was phenomenal last night.  Will be hard to keep him for his sr year but I hope he stays.  And the QB too.  Wonderful game.  Only good one I've seen so far.

Our game will be delayed as the NC vs TN game is running late.  Heard the field is a total mess - very slippery.  Not good for a QB recovering from bum ankle and turf toe.  Dang.  Hope I can stay up this late. 

Happy New Year all.

We are sucking in our game.  Everything I read says that after this game our OC is GONE... hopefully as HC to Miami OH but I think even if he doesn't get the job he is gone..... this is ridiculous.  To have a D like we have and no O for 3 yrs is ridiculous.

None... I read about that yesterday... TMs dad created Cornfed in 2000 and approached us then.  The deal was done under Callahans regime and TMs dad has made $500 in royalty payments.  ::MonkeyHaHa::  Someone is just looking for a story.  They should try covering our offensive struggles instead.

Well damn, our OC did not get the HC job we were hoping for so it is time for Bo to fire him.  We'll see if Bo can be a CEO.  Last nights bowl game was the worst bowl performance I have ever seen. 

Kiwi ... that could be fun.  Thanks for the invite.  You think RR survives?  Seems like they are torn from what I have read.  These coaches with multi million dollar deals gotta live up to the hype.  That goes for ours as well.  There is heat.

Bean - sorry your OC didn't get the job, frustrating for sure.

I finally found time today to look for something PDH alluded to, have to say it's truly an interesting twist if Mullen's wife was who reported into the NCAA. My take - if Cam was such a bad kid, Mullen would have known this from his tenure at UF, yet MSU recruited him like no other. Just really interesting to read this.....just further clouds the issue.

IMHO "Camgate" is about a WHOLE lot more than Cam Newton.  It is about corruption and not just at Auburn.  I kept reading on different team's forums about this thread where there was a ton of research on the topic.  They said.. its long but worth the read.  So I checked it out about a month ago.  I still follow it occasionally.  They claim that the FBI stumbled on the pay for play situation as a result of a much bigger investigation into money laundering and fraud during the bank bailouts.  It involves a large donor and Board of Trustee member at Auburn.  He was the COB of a bank that failed.  If you feel like it, take a look.

wreck....just scroll on by.


I am not going to allow that garbage on tigerdroppings go unchallenged.

I have been reading occasionally but really hadn't felt like posting because after Cam Newton lynching in the media, and by certain factions in the SEC, my take on college football has changed drastically....and I wasn't naive to begin with, either. I have been posting on Auburn forums mostly, and stuck close to home during this roller coaster season.

What has been done to Auburn, and to the Newton family is beyond shameful. They are NOTHING like Reggie Bush and his family, and Auburn is nothing like USC.

However...I see that the tigerdroppings fantasy has made it's way here...::MonkeyMad:: ::MonkeyMad:: ::MonkeyMad:: ::MonkeyMad::
I feel the need to let you all know this....THERE IS NO BASIS IN FACT FOR THESE ACCUSATIONS. THIS IS A COMPLETELY MADE UP INTERNET FANTASY. IT WAS CREATED BY JEALOUS FANS OF BAMA AND LSU. THE FBI IS NOT...I REPEAT...IS NOT AND NEVER WAS INVESTIGATING AUBURN. THE PROBLEM WITH CAM'S RECRUITMENT AT MISSISSIPPI STATE WAS CAUSED BY A RUNNER NAMED KENNY ROGERS WHO IS EMPLOYED BY AN AGENT IN CHICAGO NAMED IAN GREENGROSS. THE FBI HAS GOTTEN INVOLVED IN A CASE INVOLVING THEM BUT IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH CAM NEWTON PER SE. IT HAS TO DO WITH KENNY ROGERS AND HIS ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES. THIS IS WHY CECIL NEWTON DID NOT WANT CAM AT MSU. HE DID NOT LIKE THE ATMOSPHERE..... THE FBI IS INVOLVED IN THE CASE OF VOTE-BUYING BY CASINO OWNERS WHO GAVE MONEY TO MEMBERS OF THE ALABAMA LEGISLATURE, BUT IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH AUBURN. THERE WAS NEVER ANY MONEY PROVIDED TO PLAYERS THROUGH GAMBLING CASINOS. AUBURN AND CAM NEWTON ARE NOT INVOLVED IN ANY WAY IN THAT INVESTIGATION EITHER.

I am completely sincere when I tell you that the Cam Newton case opened up a dark and ugly side to college football that I wish I had never seen. The jealousy of Bama and LSU fans has gotten to the point that it's almost criminal. That thread has gone on for almost a thousand pages of pure made up garbage. There is no truth to it, but those fans are so jealous of Auburn's success, and Cam's greatness at his position, and the fact that Auburn now has it's 3rd Heisman winner, and a chance at the BCS that they are obsessed with bringing Auburn down and making people hate Auburn.
 I am not kidding. I PERSONALLY met with another AU fan and we went undercover to listen in on a Red Elephant Club (Bama Boosters) meeting, and what I heard would curl your hair. It was like being in the presence of evil. I was shocked beyond belief. They met at a local restaurant. It was eye opening to say the least.
Auburn University has one of the strongest Compliance Departments in college football. They would NEVER allow Cam to play if he was ineligible. They would NOT allow the football program to be jeopardized. There have been literally HUNDREDS of investigative reporters on campus this fall trying to find dirt. None was found. Then they moved on to Cam Newton's family, and tried to find the money and the dirt there. They could find NOTHING. These people have even gone so far as to call Auburn professors at home asking about grades which is illegal....
The players at Ohio State RECEIVED MONEY..ie COMPENSATION...therefore they are in trouble. The Newton family NEVER RECEIVED A DIME. The infraction DID NOT OCCUR AT AUBURN. I WILL REPEAT...IT HAPPENED AT MISSISSIPPI STATE AND MSU'S BOOSTERS WERE INVOLVED. IT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH AUBURN, SO THAT IS WHY CAM HAS ALWAYS BEEN ELIGIBLE TO PLAY AT AUBURN. HE WOULD NOT BE ELIGIBLE AT MSU.
Cam is a very nice young man who quietly does a lot of work with kids. He loves kids, and wants to own a daycare center one day. He is very close to his little brother Caylin. He is not some kind of shady character, and neither is his Dad. Cam goes to class, and actually leads a fairly quiet life on campus.
ESPN created most of the drama, and spread most of the lies about Cam and his family, and it was very good for their ratings. They made MILLIONS from spreading outright lies. It's like I've been saying all along...ESPN has ruined college ball. Joe Schad's "sources" lied, and he went on the air with unsubstantiated rumors just to get face time. Megan Mullen has a connection to Joe Schad......they used to work together.
Now Joe Schad is saying he didn't know he was lied to or not....right. He tried to sabotage Cam's Heisman. He tried to ruin a college kid he doesn't know anything about, and took no time to find out if what he was saying on TV was even true.
Cecil Newton made the mistake of HAVING A CONVERSATION with Kenny Rogers, and this whole thing came about because of that. HE DID NOT TAKE ANY MONEY, and sent Cam away from the MSU mess to the better atmosphere at AUBURN. Cam was given a fresh start, and a chance to excel, and the Bama fans are livid that it all worked out for him there. They have forum after forum filled with hate mongering posts about Auburn, and all kinds of lies. It's been absolutely unreal how bitter they have become over Auburn's success.
.
THERE HAS BEEN NO REAL RESEARCH beans. It's a bunch of partial facts and half truths spun together. The tigerdroppings thing is COMPLETELY A BIG LOAD OF CRAPOLA CREATED BY JEALOUS AND OBSESSED FANS OF OTHER SEC TEAMS BUT MOSTLY BAMA FANS.

If you want an UNBIASED opinion on what took place in the media then read Jack Arute's comments on the lynching of Cam and Auburn by the media. He tells it like it is.

Unless a person has been down here, and has actually seen and heard the things I have in the last 6 weeks...you would not even believe people would act this way about football.

I will also tell you that there were computers seized from the University of Alabama Athletic Dept. a few weeks ago. No one knows why yet.

The "booster" who owns a casino named in the fantasy thread has donated money to Troy University as well as Auburn. His dealings with the Alabama Legislature have nothing to do with Auburn or Troy or Cam Newton except in some bama fan's head. There has been NOTHING uncovered by the FBI with respect to football, but a bunch of legislators are going to jail for selling votes.

The Colonial Bank booster has nothing to do with Cam Newton either. His bank...Colonial Bank...WENT BANKRUPT LONG BEFORE CAM NEWTON. THE FEDS LOOKING AT COLONIAL BANK HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH AUBURN, AND IT HAPPENED A WHILE CAM WAS AT BLINN.
It was one of the first banks to fail in Alabama following the mortgage crisis. He hasn't had an active role in Auburn since he got burned in the JetGate deal with Tubby and Bobby Petrino....in 2003.
It makes me LIVID that people read that crap on tigerdroppings and have no idea it's all made up into some big conspiracy that never existed. Once again...the FBI has no investigations into Auburn athletics. They have an investigation into Kenny Rogers, Ian Greengross and some Alabama legislators selling votes to a casino owner to legalize gambling.
Does anyone think Auburn would be dumb enough to give athletes debit cards to use at a casino TO LAUNDER MONEY? Debit cards that leave a trail....and casinos that have video cameras and tons of witnesses?  If it wasn't so ugly and vile, it would be funny.
AUBURN'S ATHLETES DID NOT RECEIVE MONEY FROM CASINOS OR DEBIT CARDS FROM COLONIAL BANK. NEVER HAPPENED.

Some crazy old loser is sitting at a computer spinning a tale that is harmful to a lot of innocent people. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets into legal trouble for it. The Newtons are planning to sue some people. Auburn's lawyers have shut some people down. They may go after that guy too. The info from tigerdroppings has spread all over the internet, and has been taken as truth. It really is sickening.

Finally...Sports Illustrated spent weeks and weeks trying to substantiate all of the rumors surrounding Auburn and Cam Newton. They found NOT ONE SHRED OF EVIDENCE, and they tried very hard to find something. They admitted that they spent a lot of time and money.....but found no evidence on Cam or his family.


OK...I'm done.

It's not you nonesy.....it's those malicious losers on tigerdroppings spewing their lies and filth about some big conspiracy. It's completely ridiculous, but people actually believe it.

It just infuriates me. Bama fans have had a complete meltdown because they thought they'd get another Heisman and another trip to the BCS. They have tried sabotage Auburn at every turn, including what happened at Bryant-Denny during the Iron Bowl. They can't stand it that Auburn is so successful. This is their way of ruining the reputation of an outstanding university just because their team didn't have the season they wanted.
It's just sick to want a team to win to the extreme that they have taken it. Throw in Florida and MSU having fits because they screwed up their chances with Cam, and you have this mess online. It's being fueled by ego and jealousy, and obsession, and the media. Some of these people have their whole sense of identity invested in a football team. Throw in a few LSU fans and some Texas sore losers, and a few loonies on you-tube, and there you have it.

There is no one on this board who has been a better sport than me over the course of 5 years, and I always think of these kids who play the game first. The kids who play for Bama, FL, LSU or MSU are NOT the ones who are doing this. They can compete, and remain cordial and respectful for the most part. This kind of behavior by the fans does not help the players at all. It just makes things harder in the long run.

I never in all my life would have believed the things that I have seen and heard this season.  The behavior surrounding Cam has opened up something very ugly, and the next time it will be even worse.

Bless you SSR! Not all Bama fans are like that, certainly, and I did not mean to imply that at all. And they aren't the only ones behind it....just the main culprits.

Pdh- All 400+ arrived safety on one huge chartered jet! I have not heard anything on local TV that would make you mad. As far as I've seen, both teams are getting all the fan fare of a Superbowl game. They look pretty happy being here. Game time temp should be 72 deg and no possibility of rain or wind. Just part of playing under a dome. Day time temps are warming to the  70's and lows in the 40's. Our freeze warnings should be done for the rest of the winter.

My brother and nephew will be in Glendale for the game  ::MonkeyWink::
Very nice. Local radio stations are reporting that tickets are being sold for 3k to get into the dome and 5k for good seats between 30 to 30 yard line. If your brother is staying near the stadium the restaurants at West Gate are very good. The wait will be a little long. If there staying in Scottsdale I would have a long list of choices for them.

Most excellent news. My sources are saying that RR is out for Michigan  ::MonkeyDance:: I liked the offense for the most part but 112th total defense out 120 is pretty bad. We will see what happens next. Fingers crossed for the Stanford coach to come back home.

ESPN seems to be backtracking on that earlier report today........we'll see.

Son says it takes a full four years to recruit for RR's offense, it requires very specific personnel and he said it took RR a full four years to complete it and bring the wins at WVU. That said, son says that the defense is "experimental".........enough said.
Actually I would agree with your son. I wouldn't mind keeping RR and the offense, but the defense Standford put up would be very nice instead.

Hmm like I said 4 months ago the AD for Michigan should go. Has to be the worst negotiator of all time, following in the same footsteps as the previous AD. In the end hopefully we don't end up with a high school coach, or his next store neighbor.

Kiwi  ::MonkeyHaHa::  Well...NU fans are saying RR would be perfect fit for our offense and think he'd make a great OC!  LOL 

Wonder what the deal was that made them move the press conference from yesterday to today?  Strange.  He's fired, no he isn't, now he is... Poor guy got fired twice int he press.

OH, I am an Auburn grad!  That's my team - no matter what.  My son graduated from WVU - and was there when RR was there.  Knows alot about him and his WVU players.

Well where is Pdh? She is going to be soooooo happy to have another AU booster! As far as RR, I would have liked him to come out and make a change in the defensive coordinator. Take control of the situation and keep his job.

I am new to SM, relatively, but I have read what pdh wrote recently with respect to the Bama Fans and tigerdroppings.  I had read tigerdroppings, interestingly enough, before I read pdh's comments on it.  I have been around a long time, and I am of the opinion FWIW that Bama boosters are capable of what was indicated by that post.  JMO and I don't want to stir the pot.  I don't know all about coaching, and specific plays, just enjoy watching football.

Welcome to the Sports Tread- The football tread has a special dedication to Peaches a SM Husker fan that passed away!
As a side thing I run Kiwi's Dawg House, where every SM fan has their own Big Screen TV in the dawg house. You used to have to lose to get into the dawg house but I got too lonely as a Mich fan, so now everyone just comes in. Nonesuche and Pdh like to bring very taste treats for our pleasure. Just to let you know Klassend is Duck fan.

Welcome cadillac!  Is your name taken from our beloved Cadillac Williams?  Just so you know.....I named my dog Rudi after Rudi Johnson... ::MonkeyHaHa::
It is wonderful to see another Auburn fan here.

none - interesting comments from Nascar. MI should hire him! He is so smart!!!

cuz - I was pulling so hard for Ryan Mallett and your team! I felt so bad for them. They almost pulled it off, and it was a great effort. I was still proud of them.


I guess the Big 10 had to get a win somewhere. It's been a rough bowl season for them. Congrats to OSU!

The coaching carousel continues...


WAR EAGLE!!!!

Oh wow - you are something else.  Yes, My son brought home a rescue dog a few years ago and he named him Cadillac - for Carnell.  I have to tell you this dog is much meaner than Cadillac though.  This dog is a challenge - but we love her.  I have another rescue dog from Morgantown too, compliments of my son. She is a sweetie - but they do get along.
It is so funny that you ask me if she is named after Carnell - NO ONE would ever ask that.

Brother's friendship with Dye Jr helped him score reasonable tickets, the trip was his gift to his son for xmas. I'm not sure where they are staying but emailed him tonight to ask - he might need some recommendations for I don't think he's ever been to Arizona. Thanks for your offer.

I agree, Stanford's defense would likely be more effective but then WVU's defense wasn't their strong suit even when RR was there - son played in several games against them. I still don't understand why Michigan wanted RR so badly if they didn't buy into his strategies. That said, son reminded me tonight that RR is being paid 2.4M to look for another job, could be far worse.

Found it ironic when watching that game when I realized that Andrew Luck's father is the AD at WVU - can't say I agree with his treatment of Bill Stewart either.

College football is not for the faint of heart.

I hope your brother already has his tickets in hand. There is a huge ticket scandal brewing. StubHub and other ticket brokers sold tickets they did not have, and some sellers have reneged on their original agreements and are now selling those already sold tickets for tens of thousands of dollars, and sending the original purchaser a refund. Lots of people who paid already, and thought they had tickets are being left out in the cold. There's discussion of a class action suit.... ::MonkeyEek::

PDH I think his tickets are fine, haven't heard about this snafu but when we were together on xmas I believe he said he already had his in hand.

The site has been locking me out tonight, I was going to respond to some other posts but this is just too frustrating and I'm super tired - headed to bed.

Don't Like the BCS? Vote With a Remote

By David Steele
Writer/Columnist

t's not as if I hadn't seen "The Manchurian Candidate'' -- the original version, from 1962, with Frank Sinatra and an evil, pre-Murder She Wrote Angela Lansbury -- a few hundred times before. But it was on HBO again early Tuesday evening. And it was a whole lot better an option than the Sugar Bowl pregame show.

Once the movie went off, the search was on again, for my favorite holiday-season show, "Anything But a Bowl Game.'' Especially a BCS bowl game.

I can no longer justify feeding the monster, and then complaining when he tears the roof off my house and tries to eat me. Even though that's exactly what America does when it rails against the injustice of the college football system exemplified by the BCS, then can't tear itself away from the broadcasts.

So ... "Gladiator'' on TNT? Seen that almost as often as "Manchurian.''

"American Gangster'' on BET? Not the kind of movie to bother watching on basic cable. "The Hangover'' is on Cinemax -- but live sports is better. Spurs-Knicks on this channel, Capitals-Lightning on that one.

As long as it's not the Sugar Bowl.

Recent unscientific polls indicate that sentiment against the bowl syste
