Seconds after he stepped into the laundry room, he shouted to me, "What setting do I use on the washing machine?"
"It depends," I replied. "What does it say on your shirt?"
He yelled back, "University of Alabama."
Even though Auburn should have won this game, they easily had the best athletes on the floor (Boddie, Smalley, Bonner), I still like their chances to win the SEC regular season title. If Auburn had played with half the urgency they played with in the second half, they win by 10 points. But Vandy came out strong and Auburn didn't match it and had too big a whole to climb. Boddie is quick and Smalley (even with my comment about shooting earlier) can hit the open three.
Here are Auburn and Vandy's remaining schedules as they are the only two teams left who have the best shot at winning the title:
AU plays at home versus UGa and Arkansas,
Vandy is on the road at Ole Miss and Tennessee.
Auburn needs to win out since Vandy has the tiebreaker and hope that the 'Dores lose a game. Auburn has already lost to Georgia but the Dawgs and the Hogs are struggling and Auburn should not lose either of these games at home. Vandy has a much tougher road. Ole Miss is 4-7 in conference but the trip to Tennessee will be huge. Tennessee is down this year but at Tennessee is at Tennessee. That will not be easy.
Hopefully Auburn will get a game on ESPN soon and hold on to the regular season title and a #1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
Oh, and by the way, Alabama is 0-11 this year, they suck worse than the men.
Whatever. He got maced.
"Man, it's the same bullshit they tried to pull in my day. If it ain't that piece of paper, there's some other choice they're gonna try and make for you. You gotta do what Julio Pink Jones wants to do, man. Let me tell you this, the older you do get the more rules they're gonna try to get you to follow. You just gotta keep livin' man, L-I-V-I-N."
Karlos Dansby gets franchise tag slapped on him for 2nd year by Cardinals. Guaranteed to be a free agent after 2009 season...
A player taunting someone else while going into the endzone does not have any bearing on the play's outcome. If a player holds or jumps offsides during a touchdown, then yes, that play should come back and a penalty assessed from the line of scrimmage or the spot of the foul. But the player still would have scored a touchdown if he was high-stepping, doing a backflip or soulja-boying into the endzone. This puts too much power into the referee's hands and they are already trigger-happy with throwing celebration flags (see Washington-BYU).
It will be a huge mistake if this rule change passes. Make the kid sit out a play or fine the coach, but don't effect the outcome of a game because a player got a little too excited.
Would Gruden be better than Kiffin? I think so. UT is more likely to stop playing "Rocky Top" than they are to fire Kiffin now. Finebum just wanted to be the first to call for his head. That is all.
Auburn's profile on each signee...
Typical Bammer after Dre Kirkpatrick picked the hat with most swagger...
I see where Johnson is coming from and the word "commitment" doesn't have the same meaning in "crootin" as it does in the real world but I don't think Johnson should pull offers because a kid takes one of his visits to another school. Johnson would share pull this kid's offer out from under him if someone he wanted more showed interest in GT. And if Johnson is confident enough in his program, the school and his recruiting ability; then say we'll take all other school's best shots and GT will still get the kid. But he didn't show that confidence.
9:13 -- Automatic first down on a defensive pass interference by Rod Hood. Great porn name.
