One moar offseason topic: of all the in-game threads involving schools other than your own in which you participated, which is your favorite?
For my money, it had to have been the one where [link=(http://youtu.be/1pLpIQOYvzA)]this[/link] happened. Massive fail on so many levels makes for one of ...
| SEC Rant|| Name this former SEC HC - FearlessFreep on 7/18/14 at 8:17 pm|
hogtied's post about Bert's history got me thinking, especially his unsubstanitated and inaccurate claim that, and I quote, "No other football coach has been this successful when first coming to the SEC. "
Using some of the criteria he posted in a feeble attempt to bolster Bret's bonafides, see...

| SEC Rant|| List your school's HCs with 11-win seasons - FearlessFreep on 2/8/14 at 8:17 am|
Winning 11 gsmes in a single year is a notable achievement, particularly in light of the the fact that the 11-game regular season didn't become mandatory for all Divison 1-A schools until 1973.
How many HCs in your school's history have attained that lofty plateau? Here's AU's list:

War Damn Eagle anyway, my friend! :usa:...
| Help Board|| Unable to sign into the Coaching Changes board - FearlessFreep on 12/13/13 at 10:09 am|
I'm signed in everywhere else. Apparently a cookies thing, because my other PC and my iPad still have me logged in - but this one (work PC) won't let me. :dunno: ...
| Auburn Sports Board|| We had four guys rush for over 600 yards this season - FearlessFreep on 12/7/13 at 9:29 pm|
Tre Mason 1638
Nick Marshall 1023
Corey Grant 664
Cameron Artis-Payne 613
In the four-year period between Stephen Davis' last year and Rudi (1996-1999), we had none.
In fact, we had only one player go over 500 in that period: Michael Burks, with 532 in 1998.
In our 1997, the first yea...
| Auburn Sports Board|| Lost in some of the well-deserved Tre hoopla: Marshal went over 1000 yds rushing - FearlessFreep on 12/7/13 at 7:35 pm|
Finished the game with 101 yards and a TD on 16 carries to hit 1023 (with 11 TDs) on the season. And one more game to play.
ETA: Here's what Nick did in the last three games:
Rushing: 52 carries for 289 yards (5.5 ypc) and 4 TDs
Passing: 35-53 (66%) for 458 yards (8.6 ypa) and 4 TDs
| Auburn Sports Board|| I'm calling it, right here, right now. Favorite.AU.Team.Ever. - FearlessFreep on 12/7/13 at 7:26 pm|
Better than 2010.
Better than 2004.
Better than 1983.
Better than 1972.
What these guys accomplished, after what they went through the last two years, is simply incredible.
I'd love to see Gustav hoisting the crystal, but even if we don't get the opportunity, this will still be the ...

| Auburn Sports Board|| Fun fact about AU HCs and MNCs - FearlessFreep on 12/5/13 at 11:35 am|
Malzahn is now the 5th consecutive HC (not counting interim HC Bill Oliver) to have AU in the national championship picture following an Iron Bowl victory.
Since Shug took over 60+ years ago, the only AU HC not to have a legitimate shot at an MNC in a season was Doug Barfield. Final AP poll ran...

| Auburn Sports Board|| How did you react? - FearlessFreep on 11/30/13 at 10:56 pm|
Spent the weekend with the fam at our hideaway in north MS. Drove back to our home in Pensacola, knowing that we would miss the game on TV, determined to listen to Rod & Stan all the way.
When they came back from the break after Yeldon's run and Rod says that Saban was lobbying to h...
| Auburn Sports Board|| 1972. 1982. 1986. 1989. 1993. 1995. 1997. 2004. 2010. - FearlessFreep on 11/30/13 at 10:54 pm|
None of them come close.
This was the ultimate. Best. Iron. Bowl.
| SEC Rant|| DSOR: Since 1971, AU has won 77% when coming in with < 3 losses - FearlessFreep on 11/15/13 at 11:54 pm|
I'm not one of those who puts a lot of stock in trends from past games affecting future outcomes, but I thought this was interesting nonetheless: AU wins this game 77% of the time when coming into the DSOR with 2 or fewer losses, regardless of UGa's record.
Since the game was first integrated in ...

...Jason Campbell for the Browns and Cam Newton for the Panthers.
Quite an accomplishment for a school that's never been known for producing NFL QBs.

Does anyone else recall a meeting between two undefeated top 10 BCS conference teams in November that Vegas considered such a mismatch?
And why do I think laying the points is the smart bet?
ETA: I think we end up playing Miami in the Sugar, so that makes this thread superficially AU related...
| SEC Rant|| Question for Bama fans - why so few successful black QBs? - FearlessFreep on 10/28/13 at 4:03 pm|
Not a flame - I don't think it's a raycisss thing, just peculiar.
I can only think of five African-American QBs that have ever started Bama in the 40 years since integration: Walter Lewis, Andrew Zow, Vince Sutton, Danny Woodson, and David Palmer (who wasn't really a QB, but did start under cent...
| SEC Rant|| Congrats on the win last night, Bengals, but I really do have a question... - FearlessFreep on 9/22/13 at 6:35 pm|
I understand that y'all pulled your starters on defense for most of the second half, but on the official stats I saw tackles credited to guys named Ego Ferguson, Jalen Mills, DJ Welter, Anthony Johnson, Jemauria Rasco, Lamin Barrow, T. White and Danielle Hunter on our fourth quarter drives.
