"I've got this acting thing down now," Tuberville said. "It was a good time. They weren't asking us to play a bad guy or anything. Of course, I'm sure Nick had a hard time doing that."

So Finebaum does read WRAS

Cuz we've been saying UNS or UNST for years. Poseur.

Futbol

Things are slow this time of year waiting on reports from "voluntary" summer workouts, the next big commit, etc., so with little else to do this weekend, Mickey tuned in to check out the Confederations Cup. Here are the highlights:

You want proof?

Everyone has heard the rumors. Draw your own conclusions.

*Mickey was asleep at the wheel on this one. I leave for 2 weeks to get married and go on a honeymoon and he gets "sidetracked" when this pictures hits his inbox. Bush league.

Wait, so Tommy Tuberville's back?

What was all this talk these past few months about buyouts, firing, resigning and 5-19 about then? WRAS really screwed the pooch on this one.

Bammer of the Week

We have discussed this at length, but bammers will buy anything with that Atlanta Braves "A" or houndstooth. Bammer flip-flop stickers? Winner winner, Chicken Dinner!!!

This Should Come As A Shock To No One...

After two wonderful days in Auburn this past weekend, the only thing I could think about when I left was, "Why in the hell do I not live here?" I come home to find this article confirming my thoughts. I have seen previous years "Best Places to Live" articles and always wondered why Auburn was not on the list. No longer. I knew it would make it eventually. War Damn Auburn.

Big Cat Weekend





Another winner by the dynamic duo of Luper & Trooper. Love the fact that Jay Barker-Evans (who kept intentionally mispronouncing Lache Seastrunk's last name) and Finebum got upset at Lache's calling out of Saban. Finebum even said Chizik's "cobbled together" staff was doing some good things, as if Malzahn and the rest were in the unemployment line begging for scraps when Auburn hired them. They wish Sabear had thought of this. That's 2/2 in making off-season noise regarding 'crootin for Auburn. Get used to it!

I'll be shocked, shocked if Seastrunk doesn't come to Auburn. And I think Auburn is going to get some of these guys.
