    Re: SEC football discussion thread #3

    I've always found Auburn fans to be pretty exceptional sports and hosts in regard to Kentucky. A couple of years ago when the Cats won at Auburn for about the first time since the Big Bang, they were really gracious. I've never really sense that from Bama (although I haven't seen the ugly side, either).
    Rounding third and heading for home...

    Auburn hospitality sets standards
    Gamecock fans can show team pride without being rude, disrespectful
    By Josh Dawsey, Ellen Meder and Kara Apel
    The Daily Gamecock


    Welcome to Auburn.

    Seriously. Welcome to Auburn.

    Everyone said it - while giving directions, offering food, serving free drinks and speaking to all.

    They shook hands. They thanked you for visiting.

    And some even apologized just in case someone else was mean to you. It almost felt like there was a planned hospitality committee in this gorgeous, quaint town on the Plains. We all were in awe- the only rude fans we saw were wearing garnet and black.

    Jordan-Hare Stadium was an incredible experience due to a raucous crowd, a fantastic gameday environment and a gorgeous eagle that swooped over the stadium and sat on the sideline. The crowd chanted the entire game, but there were no rude catcalls toward USC or untoward motions to the fans, at least from our vantage points.

    This small town was the best of the best. Before the game, friends told us all the campus was like Clemson. Not true. This place was pristine with class. It had character. And the people had character. They even recycled.

    Contrast that with nine days ago during the USC-Furman game. Our students screamed obscenities at a measly out-of-conference opponent. There were boos when the other team took the field. We were rude to Furman. Yes - Furman.

    And that's not even considering Georgia. We all saw horrible exchanges during that game, from our students cursing out older fans to belligerent drunks throwing up in the student section to security guards escorting our students out by the multitudes.

    Sure, other schools are rude. LSU and Georgia are among the worst. But as some of us have noticed, we're getting a reputation for being among the worst, too. Do we want that? Football is fierce and intense. But we believe our student body should desire to be above the fray - above the substandard, juvenile conduct of others. What does that say about us? Are we holding to our ideals?

    This is not to say we should care less. Let's care more. But let's show some class, some respect and some South Carolina hospitality. Let's not scream obscenities or racial slurs at the other team.

    It's sometimes said football is a lot like life. If so, we're leaving a lot to be desired.

    Thank you, Auburn. You set the standard for what SEC football should be. If we have to lose, we'll lose there every time. From what we saw, you gave us the best of the South and the best college football has to offer. Let's do the same for Alabama in two weeks.

    Anyone who wants a preview of the next national champions can watch Auburn's A day on ESPN in about an hour.

    There's 16 five star recruits from the 2015/2016 classes on campus to watch....you could pretend you are one of them.

    It should have a similar format as last year's game and given the spring has been full contact/physical in nature again, the game itself might mirror last years unusually physical spring game. No zone read today though because QBs will be called down if a defender enters their 3 yd bubble. The coaches really feel hard core training off the field and physical practices on the field are important for fostering Auburn's traditional "blue collar, you're in for a slobberknocking dogfight" reputation. In short no one is going to outwork or out physical Auburn. Gus's version of a HUNH team is a punishing one which is ironic because mot of the HUNH detractors seem to dislike it because of a perception of it being soft.

    Last year 80,000+ attended. Judging by the RV caravan, Jordan-Hare will be crowded again but most students are gone for easter weekend. If you declare religious objections you don't have to attend classes on good Friday even though it is not an official university holiday. Auburn's student body found religion this week.

    Gus just stole 4 star safety Ben Edwards from Urban's evil clutches as Edwards decommitted from OSU and committed to Auburn following the A day game.

    Apparently buckeye nation is freaking out over the Edwards decommitment.

    They act like they're shocked which is kind of surprising because Auburn has recruited him extremely hard and doubled down their efforts after he committed to OSU. I think the only way someone who is supposedly in the know wouldnt have been out in front of this one is if he actually isn't very good at what he does.

    The actual article itself is proof of delusion. Apparently the only way this couldve happened is if the dirtiest program in history paid Edwards. Pretty crappy pot shot at the student too by simultaneously calling out his character and honesty/loyalty. Once again the white knight Sir Urban and The Camelot University suffers for its righteousness apparently.

    Bottom line, Edwards was never a solid commit and OSU was out worked and had a less compelling argument for why Edwards should chose them.

    The writer embarrassed the buckeye board and should apologize to the student.

    Concerning his implied notion that Auburn cheated, Auburn football has been sanction free for over two decades. Hey Bax, how about Ohio State?

    Probably just as well that James Franklin is no longer in Nashville.

    So in trying to distance themselves from JoePa they hired someone who did something just as bad?

    Seems legit.

    What's amazing to me how cherished and praised James Franklin was by the Commodore faithful and now he's the villian, worse than JoePa

    Kinda like Fulmer, Kiffin, Dooley and Jones (will be)?

    The more I think about this, the more I think Jimmy Franks is probably in the clear. Apparently the girl was already known around the program as one of the hosts for on campus visits. The way the defense's filing and subsequent articles read, it seems like he approached her to be a host after the incident, which is not correct.

    Also, the DA prosecuting this case gave JF another "clean bill of health" to the media yesterday. Unless there's a cover-up of Winston-esque proportions, I think this is mostly a case of a defense attorney trying to crap all over a prosecutor's case and not much more. It certainly can't be making JF's life easy right now though. Which may be a nice ancillary benefit for the defendant in question.

    Fulmer was praised before his firing???Where have you been? He was run out of town on a rail. The folks were not impressed with his coaching. If anything they like him more now than they did then. You couldn't have picked a more diametrically opposed case if you'd tried.

    Dooley had also lost support before his firing. And once he left, people quickly forgot about him. He's not found a head coaching gig either.

    The closest example would be Kiffin. He sure was villified when he left and for good reason. But he never had much success at Knoxville.

    Next time put more thought into your examples. Just listing the coaches since Johnny Majors doesn't do much...
