I started to begin this post as a list of "first time" after going to the game last night, but I cant use the word first with this group, so here I go with "never". Never have I seen an Auburn team as unmotivated as last night. Never have I seen a team tackle so poor at JH. Never have I seen a prettier place to play college football and a better environment and I asked my A&M buddy,"How and why would normal people hate Auburn" ? He was an ex A&M athlete and he said he had never seen better. Never have I seen the student section and stands empty out so early. never have I seen us give up 63 in JH and all the while doing so with no turnovers. Never have I seen the visitors bench be as matter of fact while putting it on us...it was like they knew they were getting short changed and while happy to take the big win, they really wanted a fight to truely see what JH was all about. A&M's bench was not fired up at all, thankfully, and of course we werent. Never have I seen a team with so few leaders and so little effort in 45 years of really watching AU. I have never seen an all male cheerleading squad, never been as disappointed that the other band didnt show up, never seen a better visiting crowd, never seen a better freshman QB,never seen War Eagle leave the scene of the crime and finally come back and steal the show as well as night parachutes, fly overs, perfect weather, all was set, except we mailed it in. The final never should begin with policy put in place for the new administration that forbids a greater than say 1mm payout for failure . Tubs started off frying fish and GC coaching HS and while they have had periods of great success, neither needed nor deserved huge sums of life security heaped upon them for not getting the job done. If we continue to have a policy in place that rewards seasons like 2008 and this year, well we better expect more seasons like this to happen. Lets never shortchange the AU family like this again, and lets also not shortchange the visitors from afar that didnt get their moneys worth either.
