Fuck The Saints. I Hope Your City Floods Again.

take that statement as a joke. i would never actually wish death and destruction on a city, even one as shitty as New Orleans. aka the most overrated city in america. what you can't get drunk in your own town?

anyways the loss last night was sort of a sickening one. Mike Smith made poor choices and left me feeling like there is no way that guy can win a Super Bowl. Michael Turner ran like shit and makes me wonder if the Falcons should dump him in the offseason and find a pair of younger legs. Matt Ryan tried to do everything and got very little help from anyone not named Roddy White. the Falcons #1 draft priority needs to be a fucking WR...that was painfully obvious when Michael Jenkins is dropping passes that hit him in the arms when he's wide fucking open. the mystique of the Georgia Dome is all but gone. Atlanta should be able to wrap up homefield by beating the Panthers on Sunday (never a given no matter how shitty they look) but do you really feel as confidant that Atlanta can defend the Dome should they have to face the Packers or Saints in a few weeks? i don't.

in other words: I AM IN PANIC MODE!!!!!

the defense played well and i think are still the most underrated unit in the NFL. holding Drew Brees to 17 points should be enough, it was the offense that lost that fucking game. hopefully Atlanta can lay a nice asswhipping on Carolina and get some of their swagger back because after the game last night i don't think anyone believes the Falcons are the best team in the NFC anymore.

Dear Texas,

Fuck off! Stay away from our offensive coordinator.

Auburn can't fix your fucking team everytime you need to hire someone you fucking dickheads. Go raid someone elses's pantry. You guys are starting to remind me of the damn New York Yankees. Give that Applewhite dude a try. I hear Rich Rodriguez may be looking for work soon. Go recruit another QB who can actually run.

Your pal, Justin.

P.S. love me some Austin, see you this spring at SXSW.

Nick Fairley was named Defensive Player of the Year
Cam Newton was named Offensive Player of the Year
Gene Chizik was named Coach of the Year

ONLY 4 Auburn players made the ALL-SEC 1st and 2nd teams (all were 1st teamers.) Newton, Fairly, as well as offensive linemen Ryan Pugh and Lee Ziemba. Darvin Adams gets snubbed again...but to be fair WR was a loaded position this season in the SEC so it's hard to argue about him getting left off despite over 900 yards recieving. i would've liked to have seen Mike Berry get some love and Josh Bynes, and how the hell is Michael Dyer not on here? he was way more deserving than Mark Ingram or Trent Richardson...but it's all about big names with this sorta thing. way too many Bama players on here for a team that essentially finished 4th in the SEC West.

Another Pointless Top 10 List About Music On A Blog About Sports

i used to really love making my year end top 10s...but as i have become old and no longer as obsessed with KNOWING about everything i have fallen into a pattern of only getting albums by bands that i've heard good things about from people i really trust. (i also realized i only listen to new music that sounds like old shit i already liked as a teenager). anyways 2010 might be the least active i have ever been in my whole life when it comes to discovering new music...regardless here are a list of albums that i liked a lot, listened to a lot, and will probably still like around this time next year.

1. Harlem - Hippies
probably the best power pop/garage rock band since The Strokes unleashed their first two albums on the hipster population of the United States is Austin, Texas' Harlem. this album is so fucking catchy it might as well have been called Herpes.

2. The Walkmen - Lisbon
my favorite band of the last 10 years just keeps chugging along with album after album of solid material. easily their best record since Bows & Arrows.

3. Deerhunter - Halcyon Digest
the best band from Atlanta, GA also happens to be one of the best bands in all of indie rock. Deerhunter are falling into their place as the Sonic Youth of the new generation.

4. Grinderman - Grinderman 2
my love for Nick Cave can not be understated. the man is truly one of my musical heroes and i consider him one of the great songwriters of all time in league with Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen...but it's still pretty awesome to see him cut loose in his 50s with a band whose music can best be described as dirty old man rock.

5. Zola Jesus - Stridulum EP
i always have and always will have a soft spot in my heart for weird goth chicks.

6. Dum Dum Girls - I Will Be
two of my favorite kinds of music are 60s girl group stuff like the Shangri-Las and Ronettes and 1990s indie pop. apparently that is also the chicks in Dum Dum Girls favorite two genres as well.

7. Beach Fossils - Beach Fossils
sounds like a 90s shoegaze band trying to sound like the Beach Boys. Surfgaze. solid.

8. No Age - Everything In Between
No Age are here to remind us that Husker Du and Sebadoh are fucking awesome.

9. Crocodiles - Sleep Forever
The Jesus and Mary Chain aren't just a band from the 80s who wrote "Just Like Honey" and had awesome haircuts, they are also an entire genre of music...or you'd think they were based on the amount of bands who have ripped them off the last 25 years. Crocodiles do it a lot better than most.

10. Best Coast - Crazy For You
summer music by chicks who just wanna smoke pot and go to the beach. good vibes rock and roll.

(BONUS pick) The Black Ryder - Buy The Ticket, Take The Ride
sounds like Mazzy Star. i loved Mazzy Star.

(double BONUS pick) Surf City - Kudos
all the best indie pop comes out of New Zealand. The Clean, the Verlaines, The Chills, Tall Dwarfs, Shocking Pinks, and now you can add Surf City to the list.

i’m sure i’m forgetting something i got this year that i really enjoyed. but anyways that’s my boring ass mostly indie rock favorite records of 2010.

Ranking The Top 10 Bowl Matchups I Will Actually Want to Watch

1. Auburn vs. Oregon in the BCS Championship

duh. Auburn all the way.

2. Arkansas vs. Ohio State in the Sugar Bowl

i have a feeling that if Ohio State is EVER gonna beat an SEC team then this is their best chance yet. if the Hawgs win then i fully expect Petrino to weasel his way out of Arkansas and onto a bigger stage (assuming Miami hasn't hired a coach yet).

my early lean is on the Buckeyes.

3. Alabama vs. Michigan State in the Capital One Bowl

Saban vs one of his old teams, Michigan State. 1 team that started the year thinking they were a lock to repeat as champs vs. the most surprising 1 loss team in the country that will have a huge chip on it's shoulder after getting left out of the BCS. this is the best non-BCS matchup of all.

if Bama's players are actually focused and not thinking about their draft stock then i think the Tide takes care of business.

4. LSU vs. Texas A&M in the Cotton Bowl

the hottest team in the Big 12 vs. LSU in the Jerry Dome. this could be a preview of a future SEC rivalry game whenever the hell the Big 12 minus 2 finally dies and A&M jumps into the South Eastern Conference.

i think A&M could knock off LSU, but why would you ever pick against Les Miles?

5. Boise State vs. Utah in the Las Vegas Bowl

this is a matchup i've wanted to see for the last few years. the two most successful non-BCS schools of the BCS era vs. one another to let us know who is the best upstart program in the land. this game comes a few years too late for me, especially since Utah is now off the big leagues as a member of the Pac 12 and Boise State is stepping in to take the Ute's place as the Mountain West's top dog.

Boise is the better team and will probably want to send a message to the country with an epic beatdown.

6. South Carolina vs. FSU in the Chick-Fila bowl

Ol' Ball Coach vs. his old rival FSU! sure, Bobby isn't on the sidelines anymore...but it's hard not to imagine that Spurrier doesn't wanna put a whooping on FSU anyways. old hates die hard.

7. Georgia Tech vs. Air Force in the Independence Bowl

for 80s fans this is the game for you! who isn't pumped about a matchup of the two best option attack teams in the country?! the over/under for total passes thrown in this game is probably around 13. this game will be about 1 hour long and full of option madness. i can't fucking wait! Tech all the way.

8. Mississippi State vs. Michigan in the Gator Bowl

this game intrigues me because i'm not sure if either team's headcoach will even be coaching in this game. assuming RichRod isn't fired and Dan Mullen doesn't bolt for Miami then we could see a really great showdown. i'm interested how Denard Robinson can do vs. a SEC defense. my thought is pretty damn well. i'm leaning with Michigan here even though i know they won't be able to stop Mississippi State from scoring at will. i think Robinson has a big day and gets his Heisman candidacy for next year cranked up.

(a random thought) what if RichRod does get fired and Michigan is able to hire Jim Harbaugh from Stanford? will Denard stick around and try and play in a pro style offense or will he transfer and sit out a year. if he does transfer i would hope the coaches at some school called Auburn would like to show him a reel of Cam Newton's Heisman material.

9. The Rose Bowl and Orange Bowl

i have basically the same feeling about both of these games. i will watch them, but these aren't matchups i want to see. i really would rather see Stanford vs. Wisconsin and Va Tech vs TCU. i think both of those would be better more competitive matchups, instead i'm expecting blowouts by both Wisconsin and Stanford.

10. Notre Dame vs. Miami in the Sun Bowl

not really a very compelling match up but still i was such a big fan of this rivalry when i was a kid and always rooted for the U to take out the Irish. i will be watching out of nostalgia's sake.

Sunday, December 5, 2010


The Dirty Birds are like good at winning close games or something. between the Falcons and Auburn this has been the season that's tried to push me into cardiac arrest. dare i believe both my NCAA and NFL football teams could win championships in the same season?! it makes me feel greedy, but if this actually happens i may just have to change the name or my blog altogether.

Top 25

Auburn jumped Oregon to #1 in the AP after crushing South Carolina. good to see some sportswriters have finally started paying attention. regardless being 1 or 2 doesn't matter, it just matters that Auburn is finally going to get to play for a BCS National Championship for the 1st time ever. that still hasn't sunken in yet. i am going to watch that stupid selection show just to make sure it is in fact real.

anyways, here's my top 25


1. Auburn
2. Oregon
3. TCU
4. Wisconsin
5. Standford
6. Ohio State
7. Michigan State
8. Arkansas
9. LSU
10. Virginia Tech
11. Oklahoma
12. Nevada
13. Boise State
14. Missouri
15. Alabama
16. Oklahoma State
17. Texas A&M
18. Nebraska
19. Utah
20. South Carolina
21. UCF
22. West Fucking Virginia
23. Mississippi State
24. Florida State
25. Hawaii

Did you ever believe this would happen?

Just one more win and we all get to live forever! War Eagle! War Damn Eagle! War Motherfucking Damn Eagle Forever and Ever and Ever!

I am getting wasted tonight!

SEC champs! Heisman Trophy! Maybe a National Title. It is great to be an Auburn Tiger!

Friday, December 3, 2010

please let me get what i want this time

my name is Justin Stephen Robinson. i was born August 2nd, 1978 in the shitty northern Alabama town of Fort Payne during the reign of terror of Bear Bryant. the year i was born Bama were champs and even early baby pictures depict a young Justin in Alabama baby clothes given to my folks by my mother's family...all die hard Tide fans. to be honest the entire northern part of Alabama were Tide fans...well most of it, my father on the other hand being a contrary sort of person had long ago pledged his allegiance to Auburn University. like any good son, i took up my father's team as my own as soon as i was old enough to understand what the fuck football was.

luckily for me becoming aware of football also happened to coincide with some guy named Bo Jackson coming to Auburn and things like SEC championships and beating the Tide on a regular basis. my first live Auburn game was the 1987 season opener where the Tigers destroyed Texas. that moment pretty much made me a Tiger for life.

in 1989 i can remember crying from happiness when Auburn defeated Bama for the 4th time in a row and giving them a win at Jordan-Hare for the 1st time the game was ever played there. that might always be my favorite Auburn moment of all time. i was still young and not yet broken and jaded from years of disappointment to understand just how special that moment was. but as i got older disappointment is what i learned to expect as a fan of Auburn. i always remembered my dad being pissed about Auburn being screwed in favor of Miami in 1983 but i didn't care about such things. well of course probation came along and robbed me of the 1993 season and any chance at a national title. it wasn't fair. flash forward to 2004 and another crushing blow. now i could relate to the old man. rooting for Auburn meant you'd win some big games...but in the end you are gonna get fucked by the Powers That Be.

when the Tuberville era came crashing down and Alabama re-established themselves i began to resign myself to the fact that i was probably NEVER going to see Auburn win a national championship. it just didn't seem even remotely likely.

...and yet here we are, just one more win away from having a shot for a BCS title. and that's all i've ever wanted for Auburn. a motherfucking chance. if they lose to Oregon then so be it...but just give them the chance. some of my friends have been quick to tell me that if Auburn wins the title then it's probably going to be taken away, something i could honestly give a fuck about. you can strip away a title but you can't take away my memories. just give me some memories Auburn. that's all i'm asking.

ESPN, The New York Times, Dan Mullen, and that douchebag at Foxsports.com can all eat a bag of dicks

also of note, TCU is leaving the Mountain West to join the Big Least. looks like Boise is still gonna be going undefeated every year. so the Mountain West is losing BYU, Utah, and TCU and they are adding Hawaii, Nevade, Boise State, and Fresno State. and why aren't they just calling themselves the WAC? all this realignment shit is stupid. the Moutain West went from up and coming conference that had a strong argument for a BCS at large bid to a less shitty version of the WAC. i'm sure Boise State is thrilled with their move. if i was the Mountain West i'd make a play for Houston, SMU, and Tulsa...if only to make their league at least competitive.

Saturday, November 27, 2010

i am still in joyous shock

i just woke up in the middle of the night and had to check espn.com just to make sure what i witnessed was real. after watching Bama go up 21-0 i contemplated going shopping rather than witnessing my Tigers be annihilated on national tv...but this 2010 Tiger squad has proven again and again that they WILL NOT LOSE. do we even doubt that this is finally Auburn's year to win it all? i don't see how you can not think this is a team of destiny. War Damn Eagle, indeed.

and now some random images from the greatest Iron Bowl of all time.

Friday, November 26, 2010

GREATEST IRON BOWL EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

well that turned out pretty good.




now i am getting fucking wasted.

oh well

fucking Bama.

Thursday, November 25, 2010

it's not thanksgiving unless the Lions lose.

For all my bitching and complaining about why being a Falcons fan sucks , I must take this time of the year to be be thankful I wasn't born a Lions fan. What a fucking bummer it must be to have your franchise get it's ass kicked for all the nation to see on a yearly basis. I'd like to think Stafford, Johnson, and Suh are gonna turn things around in the Motor City but that's probably wishful thinking.

Wednesday, November 24, 2010

The Most Important Iron Bowl Ever?

The answer to that question would be a big fat Yes if you are an Auburn fans. This one isn't about winning the first ever game at Jordan-Hare, or setting an all-time win streak vs. Alabama, but this would is going to decide if Auburn plays for it's first national title since 1958.

If the Tigers lose to Bama you'd think strength of schedule would count for something, but thanks to a Yankee Media crush on Boise State and an SEC hangover by the national media (not to mention the chance Auburn might have a title stripped from them at some point in the future) it's pretty safe to say Auburn needs to be 13-0 after these next 2 games. Is that fair? Fuck no. LSU was gifted a trip to the title game when they lost to Arkansas at this point in the season. Oklahoma got to play for the title after losing their fucking conference championship! (Not to mention the overall sketchiness of them getting in over Texas a few seasons back). But hey, we are Auburn, nothing ever comes to us easy. So just keep winning Tigers and everyone else can kiss your ass.

This Is Not Going To End Well

being someone who has suffered from depression most of his adult life i get rather annoyed when i watch the ESPN talking heads rail on Vince Young and his lack of maturity and his lack of mental toughness. i think it's pretty obvious that the dude suffers from some form of depression and yet the NFL (like most super macho things) doesn't confront problems like that and instead wants to label the guy a quitter. dude needs to get help, not have his coach throw him under the bus constantly.

on a related note, Why the fuck is Jeff Fisher considered some untouchable among the NFL coaches? the Titans have been to 1 Super Bowl over a decade ago and never really been consistent playoff team ever. the fact that his ass isn't on the hotseat is sort of bullshit. if i was the Titans owner i'd be getting rid of Fisher and not Vince after this season.

Hey, who is Auburn playing this week anyways?

so you may or may not have heard this 800 times the last week or so, but for the 3rd time in a row the Iron Bowl will feature an undefeated national title contending school from the great state of Alabama...yet this time it's the boys in blue who wear the target on their chest. Auburn comes into the game needing just two wins to get to Arizona...that's it. a 2 game season. they are lead by an unstoppable QB crippling in Nick Fairly, a tandem of talented runningbacks, a senior offensive line, and the best player to put on the AU helmet since Pat Dye was paying Bo Jackson. THIS IS THE REASON WE LOVE COLLEGE FOOTBALL. An Iron Bowl for the ages.

i will admit that i DO wish Bama hadn't lost to LSU and that this game was for EVERYTHING for both teams, but i guess it's comforting that at worst the Tigers will be able to play for the SEC Championship and a trip to the Sugar Bowl (likely to face off against Ohio State).

Friday, November 19, 2010

Well, They Can't Take Cam's Virtual Heisman Away

i just finished up my regular season on NCAA 2011 with Auburn by destroying the Florida Gators in the SEC Title Game (take that Urban Meyer) giving my virtual Tigers a perfect 13-0 record as they get ready for the BCS title game (vs. Oregon, no less. EA Sports Knows!!!). Virtual Cam is pretty much just as awesome as Real Life Cam...but with even more retarded stats. 3187 yards passing and 35 touchdown combined with 1725 yards rushing and 34 touchdowns (not to mention i had 20 touchdowns with Dyer and 11 with McCalebb).

Crushing opponents in a pretend reality has been a nice distraction from actual frightening reality. Now off to kill the Ducks and get started recruiting for next season.

Georgia Fans

Biggest Pussies Ever or Biggest Pussies Possible?

Having spent the majority of my 32 years in the state of Georgia surrounded by Dawgs fans I can say with some level of expertise that they are a miserable and unlikeable bunch. Fuck this mutual respect bullshit between the two schools. Georgia fans can eat a dick. Of all the Big Six in the conference they have the least passionate, least interested, least involved fans. All most of them care about is getting drunk or going to St. Simon's. Watching their program go to shit has been almost as enjoyable as Auburn's undefeated season (no matter how it all turns out.)

You'd think based on the amount of crying coming out of Athens this weekend that Auburn jumped the Georgia team getting off the bus and beat them with lead pipes. Auburn is a dirty team? Hey, we might pay our players but at least one of our runningbacks didn't threaten to put a sex tape of a girl on the Internet to get out of paying her 500 dollars back.

Fuck Georgia, I hope Tech kills them and sends Mark Richt out as a loser.

maybe they'll find a coach who knows how to beat Florida...like Tommy Tuberville.

Thursday, November 11, 2010

Thank You

have a happy and safe Veteran's Day

a random thought about Camgate

(i just posted this on WarblogEagle but figured i should post it here too)

this has nothing to do with Newton being guilty or not...

is it just me or is ESPN's overzealous reporting in the Cam Newton saga seem to be a reaction to the fact it wasn't the WWL but some bloggers who broke the Reggie Bush and Brett Favre scandals? actually what's the last big story you can remember ESPN actually breaking on their own? i think all you have to do is read the dozen or so stories that they've posted on ESPN.com the basically just recite the exact same info over and over again (minus any of the contradictory reports against their information) and you start to get the feeling that ESPN is making this THEIR story no matter what. this isn't me saying they've created a conspiracy against Cam Newton but i think they really feel that once they got wind of the investigation that they were gonna make it their top priority to be at the center of the story.

it's as if Jack Kirby could see my future.

well if anything can be said about this scandal it's that it awoke the anger and hate inside me that had been dying down this year.

I also root for the Falcons, so at least i've got that going for me.

lost in my glee (which has now turned into panic and dread) about the 2010 Auburn Tigers is the fact my Atlanta Falcons are also in first place and looking like a real Super Bowl contender. with Atlanta taking care of Tampa Bay and giving themselves a little breathing room...not to mention the fact the 3 toughest games on their schedule (Ravens, Packers, Saints) are ALL at home. at 6-2, it's hard to imagine that Atlanta finishes worse then 10-6 with a wild card spot...but with games against the Rams, Seahawks, Panthers (twice) and those home games (where the Falcons have been nearly unbeatable) 12-4/ the divsion title/ and a 1st round bye is a very real chance. hell, 12-4 might just get you best record in the NFC this year...and if Atlanta wants to make it to the Super Bowl then they NEED homefield advantage. there's no way i want to see Atlanta taking a trip to New York or Philly for the NFC title game, because that sort of thing normally ends ugly for the Dirty Birds.

at the beginning of the year i thought Atlanta would win the division...but my optimism usually turns to shit once i see the Falcons play a few times. i thought losing to the Steelers in overtime (minus Rapey Cocklessburger) was a sign of bad things to come, but the Birds have been pretty solid ever since. the sluggish game vs the 49ers and the ass kicking by the Eagles aside, this team looks just as Super Bowl ready as anyone else in the NFC. they've got an elite wide receiver, a great tandem of running backs, a good/tough offensive line, a defense that can get after the QB, and Matt Ryan, although not putting up the MVP type numbers i was hoping for) is a solid quarterback.

a little bit more about Matt Ryan. my belief that he was going to be the next guy to join the elite ranks of NFL QBs had died down a good bit, i'm more of the opinion now that he's better than MOST starters in the NFL. if i'm giving him a fair ranking then i'd put him around number 10 in the league, right now. Peyton, Brady, Brees, Big Ben, and Rivers being those 5 elite guys, Rodgers, Schaub, Flacco, Sanchez, and Eli being all closer to his level...and if i'm being totally honest, i think i'd take Ryan over any of those next level guys (besides maybe Rodgers).

my team spent 200k on a national title chance and all we got was this lousy probation

it feels like i'm the only Auburn blogger on the internet today

please ignore this sad bastard rant as it was made under the influence of drugs and sorrow.

after the twitter rumors hit that the NCAA was set to suspend Newton this afternoon (rumors that were later shot down) it made me long for the days of Tuberville. yeah, the dude couldn't get shit out of his offenses, but cheating was never an issue. sometimes you don't know what you got til it's gone.

remember when 2008 was considered the Season Of DEATH? well those are gonna feel like the good ole' days when the NCAA finally drops their Nuke on the Auburn football program. After the NCAA's heavy handedness (that will probably result in the firing of everyone with even the slightest connection to this team) it could be a long dark winter from which it may take a decade or so to emerge. fuck, that'll put me in my 40s by the time Auburn will be competitive again. whatever sanctions USC got, Auburn's will be twice as bad...if not 10 fold.

at this point i don't give a shit if Newton did or didn't get paid, i just don't want the Tigers to get caught. that's really all i am asking. i could give a fuck about ethics when it's my team.

when you start to believe your team's best case scenario is that you get away with everything this season and it takes 3 years or so for the NCAA to punish you, then you know you have a warped mind.

but honestly, i just really hope it isn't true...but it's really hard to believe when bullshit just keeps rolling down the hill.

Fuck College Football.

how many more Cam Newton stories do you think will come out before the UGA game?

Mississippi State sure has a lot of unnamed sources, don't they? In all of Fox Sports, The New York Times, and ESPN's reports about Newton I've yet to see them report that John Bond admitted on a radio show that he never actually talked to Kenny Rogers...nor have they mentioned a report that charges were never brought before the Florida Student Council...or even mentioned that leaking that info was illegal. But you know, BIG STORIES, don't come with retractions when juicy gossip is more interesting.

Anyways, today's fun new info claims that the Newtons DID get paid by Auburn and talked about it on the phone. Did anyone record these conversations? Can we just stop saying "unnamed sources" and call these people what they really are? Aka Mississippi State boosters. Oh well. I guess that means Auburn is gonna be getting investigated soon.

I'm not naive enough to think none of this is true, I'm more hopeful than most of it isn't true for the sake of my college football fandom, cause I've said it to everyone I'm friends with, if Auburn gets in any major trouble and gets put on serious probation that cripples the program and has us looking at 6th place finishes in the West and never ending losing streaks vs the Tide, LSU, and UGA...well then fuck it! I'm out. There are other things in the world that I can love that also make me miserable, like women and music.

So, at this point I'm just waiting for the story to come out that says Newton runs a dog fighting ring out of his apartment....

News broke last night that when Cam was at Florida he apparently was caught cheating on tests. So he basically had the same level of commitment to school as I did at 18. How does this relate to him as Auburn's QB? It doesn't. Does it make him guilty of taking any money from Auburn? No. Does it just stir up more shit and make it even less likely that he wins the Heisman? Yeah, probably.

But really it just tells me that Urban Meyer is one sour grapes/bitter motherfucker that he doesn't have the best toy in college football to play with and he's gonna do his best to throw a monkey wrench into Auburn's season. Seriously, fuck that guy. What are the chances this story ever would've come out if he'd stayed with the Gators or gone on to play for Dan Mullen? None/zero/never. When's that brain cyst gonna kill Urban, anyways?

getting to watch the best 200K anyone ever spent, in person, was pretty rad.

my only trip to the Plains this season was last Saturday during Auburn's complete destruction of Chattanooga. getting to see Cam Newton in person (even against a lousy opponent) was a treat. he really does look like someone taught a Grizzly how to run and throw with a football in it's paw. i only have hazy memories of Bo Jackson at Auburn. most of my love for him came on Sundays and Royals games on TV...but Auburn has had plenty of great players during my lifetime that i've had to opportunity to watch live. from Brent Fullwood and Tracy Rocker, to Takeo Spikes, to Dameyune Craig, to Rudy Johnson, to Jason Campbell, Cadillac Williams, and Ronnie Brown. none of those players seemed as exciting and dominate as Cam Newton. if Auburn and Newton can stay out of NCAA trouble, and 2010 wasn't the year the program got destroyed for 200K, then i'm willing to call Cam Newton the 2nd greatest Auburn football player behind Bo. And if Newton can take us to the promised land and a BCS championship then i'm willing to give him #1 in my heart...even if we only have him for a year.

I'll be at the Auburn game this weekend.

well i picked an interesting week to make my first trip to Auburn this year.

if you see me, this offer stands.

I blame Marvin Austin, The New York Times, ESPN, Bammers, A Talking Snake, and Scientology

so yeah, what was looking like a great season quickly turned into another reason why i fucking hate the media, bloggers, being a fan, pro sports, the NCAA, greed, and humans.

if Auburn is guilty then what can you say? fuck it. i'm fucking done with college football. i have other interests and rooting for Auburn has always been more about having something to talk to with my dad than anything else. my dad likes movies too. we can talk about that.

if the Newtons did nothing wrong, then yeah this is just another reason for me to hate ESPN (yes i get that they are just reporting a story. i am not an idiot, just an irrational human being like everyone else). oh yeah...just for the hell of it, screw Orson.

at this point all i care about is beating Georgia and Alabama. no matter what happens in the aftermath. i hope the team can rally around Cam and kick some ass the rest of November.

being a college football fan is a stupid and pointless task sometimes. i'm just glad i'm too dead inside for this to ruin my day.

i think noted murderer and church burner, Varg, sums up my feelings best.

hey, at least the McRib is back.
