    For those who don’t think politics have anything to do with the football shutdowns:
    https://sports.yahoo.com/can-the-big-ten-swing-a-presidential-election-kevin-warren-wants-to-find-out-180131201.html

    Hat tip to John Kincade (Atlanta sports talk host and Sunday morning CBS Sportsradio host) for pointing this out.

      Not sure I follow you chris. The article says that the initiative “will include non-partisan education and a deeper understanding of registration, voting and voter suppression.” They also mentioned education about financial literacy, which I think would be very helpful for athletes with professional aspirations in sports. Yeah, Warren has liberal leanings, but as long as they do keep the voter education non-partisan, I don’t see it as a bad thing.

      Maybe you are saying that Warren is cancelling the Big 10 season in an effort to defeat Trump. That seems like a reach to me. JMO

      If you “read between the lines” at some of his other statements, I don’t believe this will be non-partisan

      “The Big Ten announced a league-wide voter registration initiative on Monday, which will include non-partisan education and a deeper understanding of registration, voting and voter suppression.” There is no systemic voter suppression going on. The left wants dead people and illegals to vote, pure and simple. And when votes like that are tossed, they scream about voter suppression. I’m not saying suppression doesn’t happen at all, but it is not systemic and Republican votes get tossed too. For example, I’ve gotten on to a friend of mine who never changed his registration when he moved to a neighboring town (Wetumpka, home of our RB Smoke) because it was inconvenient. I told him his votes could get tossed and he looked at me like I have 2 heads, and I thought oh well.

      “Another 2,225 ballots were discarded because there was no signature on the envelope; 1,111 were rejected because the voter moved; and 846 were not accepted because the voter was dead, according to data from Benson’s office.”

      And here is just one problem with mass mail in voting:
      https://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/506869-postal-worker-pleads-guilty-to-election-fraud-after-changing

      The thing there is that people have always been allowed to request an absentee ballot if there are health concerns, you’re going to be out of town, etc.

      Not sure why we are worrying about the election anyway. because if trump loses he will just declare an emergency and override the election. 😀 😉

      https://apnews.com/c596e78d503f953fc8acf1eaad1b4dea

      Do I really think that he will refuse to leave the WH and declare himself dictator for life? I hope not, and I think he would bow to pressure from those around him. But it is also a little far fetched to say that “The left wants dead people and illegals to vote, pure and simple”.

      I heard him mentioned by Tom Leach a few minutes ago, but didn’t catch what the news was. Hate to hear that.

      Yeah, very sad and way too young. I forgot that he had already been “unmasked”, and I had no idea he lived in Bham. I would have tried to buy him dinner when I traveled for my job.

      I’m good with an early Bama game, but I feel like the guys are overlooking the fact that we wouldn’t have a tune-up game either.



  9. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
    10:19 am August 17, 2020 Permalink

    That new QB at Bama has some experience though since Tua was hurt some last year, so he’s not totally green. They also tore up Auburn’s defense with Mac Jones, and it had been SO tough before that game.



    • Realme

      I just cannot be intimidated by Mac Jones. All I see in my head is that pimple faced drunk mugshot.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:23 am August 17, 2020 Permalink

      Agree. Assuming they beat us, Mac Jones won’t be the reason they win.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      10:25 am August 17, 2020 Permalink

      I hope he plays like that pic looked. I just that as far as I remember, Auburn’s D was the only one that did anything against LSU and played them pretty tough, but they came apart against Bama somehow. Granted, he threw a couple pick 6s that helped Auburn squeak by.



    • runningunnin.454

      The sky is blue, and water is wet, and Bama is going to run the ball.

    Man, I hate the notion that Florida is good again. I really wanted them to suck for several years as penance for The Streak. I was hoping that the Shark Humper would hang around for a while. Can they get Muschump back again?



    • ClutchCargo

      It sucks that our window for being good and their window for being bad barely overlapped. Those missed opportunities sting every time I think about them.

      Have 11 guys on defense one more play and fall on a fumble, and that’s two wins right there. Sigh…

      11:01 am August 17, 2020 Permalink

      Just think if we had won in the Swamp when Boom had that TD run in OT where he reversed field. That run would be on such a loop on sites like this, in GIFs on UK fan twitter accounts, etc. It was amazing.

      Repeat after me, there was no Faul; Paul did not die…he just became a girl…and shorter.
      BTW, Helen Shapiro had her first hit when she was 14; she’s 17 in that video.
      Paul was in the next studio judging a contest, and the winner of the contest later ran away from home, and became the inspiration for “She’s Leaving Home”.

      I like all darkness levels of chocolate. Some argue about Hershey’s v. Nestle/Cadbury (which is more creamy and a little less dark of course), but I like them both, and I like dark chocolate too. I just don’t like white fake chocolate.

    Steve Harvey absolutely makes Family Feud. It wouldn’t be nearly as funny without him. I remember when he had his big gaffe at the Miss America pageant. He did the right thing – he owned it, was able to laugh at himself, and moved on. A lot of celebrities and politicians could learn from this.
