My prediction: The Tigers give Bama hell in the Iron Bowl and win.
(They shoulda, woulda, coulda beat LSU.)
I have 2 words. Iron Bowl. Auburn all the way.
only time will tell guys..

Yep, Im passionate when it comes to Auburn and football.
Sorry for that..
those are cuss words around our house...
Hey Matthew. I was hoping that a Bama fan could shed some light on a few things.
1. Why is the animosity towards Tennessee so intense, even bordering on hatred? I live in KNOXVILLE (so the passion for the Vols doesn't get any hotter) and most fans here simply don't seem to have as much venom for Bama as you guys do for us. In fact, there's a lot of respect for you guys, the tradition, the *****ry, etc.
2. Why do Bama fans blame Fulmer for the NCAA investigation and probation? This one has me stumped. I don't see how anyone can blame him for pointing out that there was something fishy going on in Memphis. Steve Spurrier and Terry Bowden brought it to the AD's attention, but no action was taken as I recall. Was Fulmer supposed to just say "Oh well" and let the cheating continue, working to the detriment of both programs?
3. Do people in Alabama REALLY support Shanks, team Cottrell, etc? I'm a lawyer and from my point of view, those guys look like such clowns. So far they've managed to get a multi-million dollar judgment against a guy who couldn't pay it if he lived to be 200.
4. Does Feinbaum have some sort of personal vendetta against UT? His columns before and after the game crossed the line from journalism to a smear campaign in my mind. I read lots of other SEC sports writers' columns and NONE seem to be as mean-spirited as his.
Thanks for any insight you can offer.
Okay for the first one
the fans I have met from TN have been down right asses at times.. My brother in law got jumped in the bathroom in UT's home statium while trying to take a piss.. so that is one of the things
On Fulmer, from the information that I have seen it appears that it was Fulmer that had very big hand into the workings that got us that long suspension of scholarships and other things.. as for the cheating, it happens at all the schools and UT is no exception.
As for the other stuff, I have no idea..
After living in the UT athletic dorm for 2 years, my view is that every school cheats it's just a matter of getting caught.
The Bama booster was one of the most brazen in the country. Talking about how he learnd how to buy players from Bear Bryant himself. The NCAA wanted him taken down, plain and simple. Fulmer saw an opportunity with the Means situation to take this guy out.
That said, karma is a bitch. The Vols better watch it when it comes to the shady dealings.
I think LSU will win as well but in a close game.Originally Posted by Rogue Drone
Just remember, no one has blown out Bama in a long time (by blowout I'm talking by 3 earned touchdowns - not some quick blowout in the end from the opposing defense that makes the game look much less close than it really was)Originally Posted by Rogue Drone
I dont think LSU will have more than 10-15 points on Bama... and I dont think LSU has the defense to keep Bama from putting up 2 TDs
emotionally invested? It always gets this way? Dude you've seriously got a 'holier than thou' and a 'i'm so much superior to you' vibe goin on, you can't back up any arguments so you start attacking me.
"I believe LSU is going to kick the snot outta Bama"
Thats a blowout; I guess you had English as a 2nd language?
I'm not going to waste my time paying attention to your high school-drivel anymore.
As for comments on the game today:
I've never seen such a horrible officiating crew. I saw them spot the ball in the wrong spot for BOTH teams about 7 to 8 times. Alabama was robbed of a fumble recovery for a TD when they ruled it an incomplete pass when it was OBVIOUS that it was passed backwards behind the line of scrimmage -> aka lateral pass which cannot be 'incomplete' only fumbled.
Great game of defense by the Tide though... allowed less than 100 yards the ENTIRE game and forced what like 5 turnovers or something? I havent seen that done in a very long time.
I really hope that the offense gets some needed tuning.. seemed very "out" of it today... I am really starting to think that RD is an Auburn fan or a UT fan..
Ramma Jamma Mama Klama - Miamah just beat the hell outta VTech.
Ok, it doesn't quite rhyme as well, but regardless, you are welcome Bama fans.
We've got some good teams left, but I'd love a rematch in the Sugar.
We got some payback for the Tide also!

But - knowing what I know - this quote is freaking hilarious.
Yeah - RD might possibly be invested in Auburn in some strange form....
