Auburn recruiting momentum building

Alabama Crimson Tide fans might call Auburn’s recruiting nothing more than gimmicks, but the momentum the Tigers have built is nothing short of astonishing. You can’t deny that Tiger Prowl and Big Cat Weekend have the rest of the SEC trembling in fear. Doubt that? Just take a look at the latest Scout.com rankings!

The Auburn Tigers have astounded naysayers by snagging the 40th spot in the updated recruiting rankings. Alabama trails the Tigers significantly; the Crimson Tide currently ranks second in Scout’s rankings.

    What you’ve got to understand is that the Barn recruits “quality” individuals that have character and high morals. Kinda like Trey Blackmon.

    Blackman was a role model compared to Nico J.

    Auburn is truley on thier way.
    BTW I was reading Jon Solomon’s blog at al.com just a little bit ago and it blew me away. There is a veritable cornucopia of information and allegetion there.
    Cappy, If you havent given it a look, the article is informative and some of the comments are well…. an eyeful.
    Not saying they are true…but they are thought provoking.

    Is it February? Recruiting is not over, plus nothing Auburn (Florida, Georgia, UT) does will stop Alabama recruiting. Alabama has done great, but why bash Auburn? If we are so great why the constant never ending bashing of Auburn on this web-site? We should just ignore them…. It makes Bama fans look scared or concerned about Auburn… All Auburn, All the time…

    Umm, only someone who doesn’t read any media would see this as bashing Auburn. This is more commentary on the way the media has covered recruiting over the last three months.

    I kind of figured that was obvious.

    Why bash Auburn? See: the streak, and the subsequent classless behavior by our barn dwelling friends across the state while we had our hands tied behind our backs with probation and stupid coaching hires.

    That’s why we bash Auburn. They suck, hired a 5-19 loser to face off against one of the greatest recruiters and game day coaches of the day, and will subsequently take it up the rectum the last weekend in November for the forseeable future.

    Change your name, bamafan. Your colors are orange and blue.

    Question…

    According to Scout.com,Alabama has 14 commitments. However, everywhere else I have read has Alabama at 13. I read Andrew Bone’s recruiting report in the Tuscaloosa News and think he is one of the best in the business. However, did he miss something here or am I missing something?

    I was thinking the same thing. 2 weeks ago scout had us at 12, but we’ve commited the 2 – 5 stars since and that would be 14. Maybe they’re counting Phelon Jones since he can’t play until 2010. I already ripped bamafan a new one for his dumbass comments yesterday. I think he bleeds orange and blue. If he wants humanitarian treatment for the Barn he needs to discuss them in church – not on this blog. Maybe he can do some mission work over in the East Alabama Bush. Get em to repent for all the damnedable lies they spread about us! RTR!

    Two players are JuCo transfers, Bolton being one, Kerry Murphy will be the other. Technically, they counted against the original signing class and will not count for this year’s class.

    Didnt take you for the EXCUSE kinda guy ITK. I for one am SICK and TIRED of that stupid ass excuse. We didnt put you guys on probation(u did) and I am sure we beat you guys in the IB when you were not on probation. But its kewl becuase really to make that excuse for losing a game shows alot of class huh?

    Hey I have an idea next time your hands are tied behind your back do as you did in the UTAH game… STAY HOME!!!

    Was Auburn’s hands not tied in last years IB by dumb decicions and constant arguing by coaches? I mean IMHO neither Auburn OR Bama have anything to brag about.

    Ballplay, you must have your names confused, Blackmon was arrested after running through the woods from the cops for a dui and then twice more. Nico appeared in court for verbal harassment and was found not guilty, he was not arrested, yeah he sounds like a role model compared to Nico. However, it should be illegal for what he is going to do to Aub’s pitiful offense this year.

    For the record, I’ve been posting comments here for over a year now. Now I see there’s a poster that calls himself bamafan(lower case “b”). Do not confuse us. By the way, strange how this poster “bamafan” continually posts negative comments about the U of A. He’s not fooling anyone.

    It is the modus operandi of the Aubbo.
    If they meet someone they cant match wits with they just try to undermine them.
    For the record, I am sure Auburn has graduated some very fine people. unfortunately we get to see thier lowest class Jerry Springer prospects far too often.

    Nico is a thug……Remember him at the Bball brawl ? Now hes got charges of assault…Blackman on the other hand got drunk, wow, imagine that. Not to mention he got supended for 6 games. get a grip man. Yall are signing another thug. He should fit right in.

    Yeah Ballplay, make light of Blackmon getting drunk and driving and running from the cops just because he played at Aub, and if you think that is no big deal like you said “wow” you need to talk to Siran Stacy, or my grandmother who lost her husband and my grandfather to someone like Blackmon, now you get a GRIP MAN, I will jump your ass for making light of that.

    He got a P.I.. He want driving., he was a passenger…And yes Drunk Driving is stupid as hell. But so is assaulting someone. I am not making light of it. I hate it for your loss. But get your facts straight.

    Being a stupid drunk passenger and letting your stupid drunk friend drive kills innocent people, last time I checked a bloody nose didn’t shatter lives, there is your straight fact. . .

    i agree and I will never ake light of someones loss. I will never defend a drunk gettin behind the wheel.

    But dude, are you telling me that the crime of assault hasnt shattered lives. I know thats on the extreme end of the spectrum, but so is your your arguement.

    And how do you know that the driver was drunk ? Oh yeah, you dont. Because if I remember correctly, he wasnt. If he was drunk, I dont think he was charged with it. If Blackman hadnt run, he probably wouldnt have even gotten into trouble.

    And I sure didnt take up for the dude. At least not like you clowns did for the Legacy thug club. Oh how quickly you dooshes forget. One winning season and yall have Amnesia. I still say if a player cant tow the line , bama or Auburn, kick his butt off the team. And I said that about Blackman more than once.

    Blackman was a heavy hitter, and great against the run. His pass coverage stunk. If you notice last year when he returned from injury, he never got his job back. Go research my posts if you dont believe. I have not blown sunshine up Blackmans butt. Ever.

    And another thing. Are you telling me youve never been drunk ? If so , good. But I can tell you with certainty, alcohol hasnt touched my lips in ten years. Not that it matters. But just making a point that if you dont know what you speak of. Shut up. You know, Its better to be thought a fool and stand silently, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt. That applies to you.

    Hey Ballplay, you don’t know what the hell you are talking about, yes the driver WAS arrested with Blackmon, google it, I did. Now you shut the hell up asswipe.

    Bamaman … cant find anything to support your claims. Give me a specific link or you shut the hell up. In fact from what I remember and have just read, he wasnt even in a friggin car period, he was walking down the street in his hometown of LaGrange. If you are reciting the ESPN article, read it again. The other guy was a entirely seperate incident. It was Kevin Sears.

    Again shut up if you dont know what the heck your talking about. doosbag.

    Like I said, give me a link. Ill gladly eat crow if Im wrong. But I can gurantee you that you will never fess up. Thats the difference between you and me. You arent a man.

    Prove me wrong jackass……Post a link…..You are not going to because I AM RIGHT…..YOU ARE WRONG……No need to get defensive. And no , your not a man. You are an internet jackass…. Thats all. The duded with Blackman was not arrested, if there was even a dude with him. He was a pedestrian. Dude your wrong so much you dont even know when your wrong.

    Quick, hurl a meaningless insult that Ill roll my eyes at.

    Next time , make sure its a hill worth dying on before you charge up it.

    Ballplay, when you say he was a passenger, do you mean he was a passenger on his gay friend’s back? Maybe he is not a thug just a fudge packer like you, your the one that said he was a passenger, maybe you are just wrong as usual, now go ice you nads hypocrite
