    I’m probably in the minority, but I believe a deal will be done. I’m also not sure even if a deal is not done that it will keep first round players out of the draft.

    TO ME IT SEEMS AS IF JULIO PLAYS ,WELL LET’S JUST SAY CONDITIONALLY. I JUST DON’T KNOW WHAT THOSE CONDITIONS ARE, WHEN YOU NEED IT. IT SEEMS AS IF A BALL IS DROPPED, OR HE CAN’T SEEM TO MAKE IT INTO THE ENDZONE. WHEN YOU DON’T NEED A SCORE HELL HE’S THE GREATEST RECIEVER IN THE FREAKING WORLD. BUT HELL’ “HE WAS GREAT AT PRACTICE”

    Look at the usa todays updated coaches pay. What a ripoff yall paying Saban all that shite. Hes only there for the money. lol. A coach should get paid by his accomplishments like Chiz does. He gets 1.5 mil in awards and bonus money for this year. Just like it should be. You morons are stupid spending all that money on that loser. Shula would have evidentually done the same for a fraction of what Saban makes. What a bunch of idiots. War Eagle

    Shame on you for crashing Bamas team awards banquet Mandy LOL. They are trying to keep their spirits up, since the attention they got last year disappeared faster than Bin Laden.

    Mandy is so smart. Chizik should really think about hiring here as the ‘really nice Auburn spokesperson lady’. Her I.Q. is the equivalent to a small rock. Which is saying a lot for an Auburn fan! Roll Tide!

    Mandy: FYI: I didn’t spend a thing on Saban, just like you don’t pay Chizniks salary. And Saban is well worth the money, as you can see, Sabans record as a head coach (with TWO titles) still trumps Chizniks. See, Chiznik hasn’t WON one yet, and he is still barely above .500 as a head coach. One good season doesn’t make a career, except for at a championship challenged program like Auburn.

    In a few weeks, Chizik will pull to within one. Not bad for a guy this early in his coaching career. I really like this Chiznik guy.

    I would still take Saban. He has 2 titles, and never has had a losing record anywhere he has been. He is not done yet, either. He is a consistently good recruiter, and knows how to get players to the NFL. Much like the LA Monroe loss propelled Bama to a NC, what kind of motivation do you think they have now, after the Iron Bowl? I hope all you Auburn goons count him out. But really, next season, Auburn will be pretty depleted on offensive line, and 9 starters on defense will be gone, not to mention Cam. So y’all will be basically starting over, with all the leadership gone and with a tougher schedule than this year. Good luck with that.

    Yeah, its the damnedest thing. We seem to always be facing a down year. No doubt alot of seniors are gone, but while all the talk about our depth has been talked about, alot of young players have had to play the last two years. A bowl game, albeit basicaly meaningless but at least a trip to Florida last year, and now the BCS championship game this year. I like our future. And I’m sure Bama will be strong, as long as your quarterback isn’t thinking in the back of his mind, if he throws a incompletion, his coach will take him on the sideline, pull his britches down, and spank his little ass.

    Yeah, I am just glad he doesn’t wave a towel around and act like a thug. But you are delusional if you don’t think that the losses Auburn has this year won’t affect the season. But come on back here next year because BP* will need a shoulder to cry on.

    LMAO. Good comeback. Ok Julio needs a towel or something, maybe a hat or something, I mean I know we got some long haired guys, but damn if he doesnt look like Haiti’s version of the Wendys restauraunt girl.

    I mean, you guys should like it when Bama does well, cause the next season Auburn usually follows up. Like it takes Bama to do well to get y’all fired up. Maybe Auburn doing well will fire Bama back up for next season. But Bamas focus usually is not trying to keep up with Auburn, it is usually the other way around.

    I bet this brando fool is ugly as shite. I can tell by his big fat mouth. Wish I could come face to face with this idiot just to knee this fool. I only weigh 112. Guarantee ya I can take this bitch down with some quick moves. War Eagle

    Another Brandi* theory bites the dust.

    So?
    Much like your “6 in in a row” that was another time and another coach.
    Bama has reached a point where a 9-3 season is a disappointment again.
    The next recruiting class may be Saban’s best ever and the future is looking pretty good.
    Forward is our cause now. Not backward.

    Malzahn cannot run a college football program. All that man does is draw up plays. He would drive our program or any other program into the ground except high school. Can you see Malzahn up at the podium daily? I think not. The man is goofy. Let bammer trash hire him as their head coach you like him so much. He will fail just like Tubbs is doing but worse. BTW our defense has improved cuz Chiz took it over. It was being driven into the ground by Roof. Dam you people are stupid.

    lmao now espn has the truth

    Did anyone see Scott Van Pelt’s comments on the ESPN interview with Cam. He said he did not believe Cam (no surprise). But he also says he knows more but can’t reveal the information right now. It has been speculated that by insiders that ESPN has the story but just can’t break it yet. I think this pretty much confirms that. Looking worse and worse for Auburn.
