I admit sometimes my "mad skills" just make me want to entertain the local folks.

But, Fuck the folks and their vaccines, mask and all other bull shit.

Coach Byron Hatpin arrived at Auburn a little over a year ago.  The staff that will lead the Tigers this Fall will look vastly different than the one he hired for the 2021 season. First, WR Coach, Cornelius Williams was unceremoniously let go a few games into the season.  As soon as the Tigers finished blowing a 10-3 lead in the Iron Bowl, OC, Mike Bobo, was sent packing as well.

The exodus continued when D-line Coach, Nick Eason, bolted for Clemson. Now, our DC, Derek Mason, is headed to the Big 12 to work for the 40 year old man, Coach Mullet.

This may be needless piling on, and may have little or nothing to do with the staff shake up, but I think if you also take note of the fact that we've had 15-16 players enter the portal, and arguably our best receiver dismissed, the optics (As so many like to say) aren't good. 

Granted, the portal has hit everybody hard, and we lost our fair share of bodies last year as well.  Many of the guys were no-brainers who weren't going to crack the rotation.  Others were head scratchers that made you wonder WTH is going on?   But, probably best not to read too much in to the cummins' and goins' of players, and hopefully chalk it up to the current environment of college football.

The staff changes have to raise some eyebrows, though.  You're willfully blind if they don't. No need to go off the deep end about them, but there are questions that need to be asked. And at the very least, you have to pay attention to the overall state of this program after the upcoming season.  These were Harvinz' hires.  He felt the need to fire two of them.  Eason can be brushed off as someone who went back to his alma mater, which just happens to be one of the elite programs of the last decade.  But Mason leaving to presumably make what has to be considered a less than lateral move, is where things start to get interesting.

 The Defensive Coordinator at Auburn doesn't just up and decide to go coach in a failing conference.  If he was offered a HC job or a position in the NFL....yeah, I can see that.  We all kind of assumed that would happen sooner than later anyway.  But Okie State?  Nah!  I don't think it's a stretch of any kind to assume there were problems between he and Harkins.  Those were the rumors.  Rumors I resisted by the way, because self-professed "insiders" like Justin Hokanson and his Bigsby to Georgia garbage, continue to sour me and make me take every rumor with a big, fat grain of salt.

But this one apparently had legs.  GH sent an article by Jay G Tate, which echoes my sentiments exactly.  There may be some cracks in the dam. On the other hand, this may just be business as usual.  Either way, it's not a good look, and what happens in 2022 may tell us all is Brian Harminz really has the master plan, or he's in over his head.

The SGA / Spell it with a C or a K

Doesn't matter how you spell it, our alleged "vice president" is a kondescending KUNT. 

She's dumb. She's arrogant. She's inept.

It's absolutely fucking humiliating that she represents this country.   In all honesty, 90% of our "elected" officials are an embarrassment. The potato-in-chief?  For fuck's sake.  Schumer, Pelosi, Schiff, Waters, Crenshaw, Swallowswell (he was fucking around on his wife with a motherfucking Chinese spy and skates? WTF?), Romney, the dead McCain, the live McCain, Newsome, Mamma Kay Iveuh, Spartacus, AOmommy part, the brother-fucking Somalian, Rashida, this list could go on forever. 

Something needs to change.

Crazy, but I got laid to that guy's operatic vocals more than once. 

Way more than one object of lust got the horny itch from Paradise by the Dashboard Light.  Not sure they ever figured out he was actually bashing them.  Not that it mattered.

Broun Hall / Peacemaker
« Last post by Kaos on January 20, 2022, 10:01:50 PM »
Spinoff from the (not good, kinda terrible) second Suicide Squad movie.  Series on HBOMax.

DC wants so badly to be cool. But all it does is drag ass behind Marvel and poorly imitate what it thinks makes those movies succeed.  And then fuck it up a hundred ways to Christmas.

Peacemaker is John Cena. A muscle head semi-superhero who's a mass of contradictions swirled around in a sea of testosterone. He's prone to socially unacceptable commentary, smoking dope, being naked and other rude behaviors. 

It's another attempt for DC to channel Deadpool.

What they don't get is that fuck scenes, the word fuck repeated ad infinitum, snarky commentary and such aren't really what carried Deadpool.  It takes more than that.  It has to mesh. It has to work on a variety of levels.

It's weird because the same guy that put Guardians of the Galaxy together in such a spectacular way (James Gunn) is in charge of this crudity-laced series and (just like with Suicide Squad) he can't get the mix right. 

Cena isn't bad, but he isn't really good.   Gunn cast his wife as the primary female lead and she aaaalmost has something, but she's not that good either.  She looks good in bed in her matching bra and panties, but she's kind of struggling to carry the role. There's also a CGI eagle.

Maybe it gets better, it's only four episodes in...... ehhhhh.......it's DC.  I expect fucked up fuckery. I'm trying, but I'm just not invested in it. 

I will admit that the opening credits are so cheesily idiotic they're worth watching.

That's the ONLY critique I have of this team so far...over the past few weeks to a month, it seems like they build a big lead and then tend to try for the sportscenter highlight plays until the other team climbs right back in the game.  If they played with the same intensity for 40 minutes, I couldn't imagine anyone beating this bunch unless injuries pile up.

Someone on the rivals board said it well this morning , “purpose driven approach”. That’s absolutely this team. They know when to hold em and when to fold em. Although I admit it’s aggravating at times.

It felt like the Tigers knew they were significantly better then UGA and were content to wait for fast-break opportunities and let those buckets be enough. It's not coasting per se because the team's defense remained opportunistic, but the purpose-driven approach that made Auburn so incredibly overpowering during the first half was fleeting.

Then again, being up 25 points at halftime means Auburn didn't need to summon its best effort from start to finish Wednesday.
