re: Does Finebaum eat. - StringedInstruments
Well...I’ll admit that I’ve listened to finebaum off and on for about 15 years. He’s a health nut and used to do long distance running. He doesn’t touch alcohol or anything with sugar in it. ...

re: as of today 65% chance Gus is gone this season - StringedInstruments
[quote]1. He has a too high of a buyout. Simple as that.[/quote] Not necessarily true. The SEC Network deal has given all programs a significant amount of money. We also have the support from boosters to pay it if we need to. Only issue IMO is the optics but optics don’t mean shite if he’s going t...

re: Highest paid coaches in College Football 2018 - StringedInstruments
[quote]The incentive is hiring them for about 2 million to begin with. That is more than generous. Just earn the rest according to exceeding expectations.[/quote] Your premise should actually dive into paying players. Because like NFL players, college coaches are earning the market rate base...

re: Let's get it on the record now. - StringedInstruments
[quote]I don’t want him to get an extension and a raise, but he’s earned the right to stay. If we have the money, it’s best to hope he doesn’t bolt for Arkansas.[/quote] Hmmm. Not sure how much I hate my answer. I mean, at the time it looked like he had kinda turned the corner win the team but...

re: Does Malzahn get fired if they miss a bowl? - StringedInstruments
[quote]Malzahn has a $32 million buyout. They can't afford to fire him and pay a new coach.[/quote] I kind of want to see us be forced to hire a cheap coach. I think a big issue for many teams is that we overpay coaches hoping money can buy the next Saban. No one is going to duplicate his succ...

re: Missed Gus carnalizing himself - StringedInstruments
[quote]Didn’t care about watching game. [/quote] Same here. Sad, isn’t it? I didn’t even have a real excuse not to. The game was actually on our TV. I had just completed a long training run and wanted to lounge on the couch. Decided to pull weeds, play outside with my son, and reorganiz...

re: Can we afford to not fire Gus? - StringedInstruments
We can afford to not fire Gus. Auburn fans are faithful and will always be there in full support to start the season. We buy merch for our kids. Students see it as a social event....

re: Official Running Log/Marathon Training Thread - StringedInstruments
18 miles. The cool weather made it feel easy. Didn’t break too much of a sweat. My heart rate stayed in the aerobic range until the last two-three miles when it crept to 170. Breathing was good. Legs hurt like hell though. I struggled running slow. Ran about 13 miles at a 10:15 pace (race pace) e...

re: Which moment in Auburn history - StringedInstruments
Your question is flawed. Gus has always been like this. He nearly pissed away a sure-victory against UGA in 2013 needing a miracle catch to win. He squandered a 21-3 lead against FSU in the BCSCG. He got blown out by LSU early in 2013 because we didn’t have an identity. He pissed away on...

re: A simple Auburn thread on a beautiful Thursday afternoon - StringedInstruments
Weird thread. JJ was a head case. Numerous NFL scouts and college football analysts regarded him as a potential high draft pick based on his abilities shown in practice. He had some kind of strange football stage fright that turned him into one of the worst SEC QBs of all time. ...

re: Auburn fans, how down are you guys this year? - StringedInstruments
2014 wasn’t that down. Jesus that’s an okay year in the grand scheme of things. It’s 2015 level bad. If we win out until UGA, then it’s 2016 as that team looked pretty good until Amen Corner. But we’re a bad defense away from 2012. It’s not as far off as people think if the insider info was ac...

re: Once upon a Time in America is on Netflix - StringedInstruments
It’s good. Really good. But it’s too long. I’d recommend dividing it up like a miniseries. I watched it in one sitting and Jesus it got old after a while. Oh and in the current era of #MeToo, be prepared for a really uncomfortable scene that you might want to warn the missus about. ...
