Still on the hamster wheel

So for the last several days it's felt like my legs have been spinning like freaking Scooby Doo's--seriously, like, I've been working hard enough that I sort of drift backwards before suddenly spurting forward, or something--and to be honest, I'm not sure it's going to be much better until the weekend. If anything massive happens on the Tubby front, there will be a quick post a la last Thursday's (which, aside from neglecting to clarify that I still do expect Tubby to be on Auburn's sideline next year, I stand by despite its unpopularity in the comments and elsewhere), but otherwise, it'll be Saturday at the earliest.

Which sucks, sucks, sucks. To baldly understate things, the weeks following the Iron Bowl and during which our coach and administration appear to be squabbling like nine-year-olds in the back seat of a long car trip ("Mom, Coach Tuberville's making faces at me! Make him stop!") are not the time to go AWOL. I know that. I apologize to all the nice people who have supported this blog this season (or ones who have just started stopping by recently) who I know have been checking in only to repatedly see no new content. But it can't be helped.

One thing I will say before going: I'm happy to have Auburn in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl, if for no other reason than because there's no possible way I can watch that many ads for Chick-Fil-A and go without eating about three-and-a-half Chick-Fil-A chicken sandwiches, no pickle. It's not gonna happen. The closest Chick-Fil-A to Ann Arbor (I have it on good authority) is in Toledo and I've been mulling over a run down there for months ... and now I finally have the perfect excuse to do so. I will have to have Chick-Fil-A during the Chick-Fil-A Bowl. It's that simple, thank goodness.

If you'd gone more than a year without one of these, you'd feel the same way.

No, no, no -- you need to go extra pickle and add cheese (american).

Wheat bun....20 cents extra but tricks you into thinking its healthy.

I didn't know you could go cheese or wheat bun. Woah.

What you need to do is make sure that you are one of the first in line when one opens in your neck of the woods of Michigan. You can score a year's worth of sandwiches that way.

If you don't get pickle, it's not a real Chick-Fil-A sandwich.

I get mine without butter, though.

Jerry, you actually work for a living? I thought you were a reporter? Haaaaaaaaahaaaaahahahahaha!!! ;-)

    Chick-fil-a is NO GOOD if you like dark meat. Dry, dry, dry. And, even the dark-meat poultry is WAY better for you than a burger! Dark vs. white:


    I'd hope that most Auburn grads can use a feed reader, and we'll know when Jerry's big Iron Bowl wrap-up DOES materialize! In the meantime, I do know that life can be a time-consuming pain!

    And a big War Eagle, to Tuberville and Jacobs for getting the deal done. This is NOT a good year to be looking for a coach, eh?

"This is NOT a good year to be looking for a coach, eh?"

Hah, no, next season would not necessarily be a good one to try and break in a new coaching staff...

War Eagle!

Chic-Fil-A isn't that good. Now, if they'd trim that awful parastie-attached piece of ligament/fat gliggle-globble crap that is attached to all their chicken breasticles, then i'd give it the recognition it deserves.

as for auburn, we need to do NO trimming from our coaching staff. we need to most consistency we can have this off-season to be ready for september of next year.

i think a lot of people, myself included, will find out next year just how much brandon cox was limited in what he could do as a QB, and how good Borges can be.

I found a Chick-Fil-A up in Racine. Might have to rent a car for the trip. There are tons of Popeye's here in Chicago but now Chick Fil A's? On a related note, Al Copeland (who owns Popeye's) is a big shot in New Orleans which may explain why the only Chick Fil A's in NOLA are at a mall in one of the burbs and at the University of New Orleans student center. Either way, not as good as the crack-laced food you get at stand-alone CFA establishments.

All right Jerry, jump off the hamster wheel. There's a lot of fat to chew considering the events of the last 3 days or so. Tommy has signed, Borges is now gone and we have Franklin and the so-called "Spread Eagle" offense showing up at the Chick-Fil-A bowl. That's a lot to digest in 9 days, but things seem to be happening fast these. WE NEED YOUR THOUGHTS!...for free of course 8^)

War Eagle!
