“A teachable moment”

What do you figure the over/under will be for the number of times that phrase is uttered, typed or otherwise trotted out this week at SEC Media Days?

And too bad, C.J. Uzomah.  You knew the job was dangerous when you took it.

    I’ll bet this is his “punishment”. He won’t miss a game.

      Auburn’s policy doesn’t call for suspension on the first offense. So, no, he won’t miss playing time.

      Looking forward to the inevitable heartwarming ESPN story on how the Auburn family saved him from a life of crime and drug addiction.

    ” NO PUNISHMENT” and that my friend is what the HELL is wrong, the NCAA are a bunch of “ASS-HATS” and Slive is worried about money and building HIS empire. Thieves, dopers and J. Winston, it is required that you have a criminal record to go awbarn. amiright.

    Good thing he’s not in the Glee Club or he’d be suspended from 1 week of rehearsals.

    This is serious. I think he should have to quarterback Arkansas for two games so he can appreciate the situation he’s in at auburn…

    If I was Nick, I’d hope they’ll suspend me from wind sprints after practice. That would teach me, I know.

    It remains to be seen if he gets the Stephen Garcia treatment from AU, but if so, he only has about 10 more violations (or a 3 game losing streak) before he’s REALLY in trouble.


    • Garcia was unique.
      Garcia’s alleged party became so raucous that the S.C. Highway Patrol – which provided security for the team during its stay in Atlanta – was called to investigate.

      Upon entering Garcia’s hotel room, they are said to have discovered the quarterback in a highly-intoxicated state in the company of five different young women – two of whom were completely naked.

        Long Live the Awesomeness

        “Rather than let Garcia sleep his big night off, our sources say that the USC coaching staff forced him to run on a treadmill while he was still hungover. There was reportedly even talk of benching him for the bowl game – or at least sitting him out for a series.

        Obviously Spurrier chose to start him, but Garcia clearly wasn’t himself.”

    So all you have to do now to be excused from the Alabama media day circus is smoke a little weed? Sign me up.

    Back in the old days, the only semi-legitimate excuses were threats of family harm and subpoenas.

      Those were good times for the dazed and confused:

      “These are great fans that have great passion about the Southeastern Conference that are not interested in that kind of BS.”

      — Tennessee coach Phillip Fulmer when he got served at media days in 2008 with a subpoena to testify about a lawsuit brought by a former Alabama booster against the NCAA.

      “I’m not a comedian.”

      — Arkansas coach Bret Bielema in 2013 when asked about Auburn coach Gus Malzahn’s statement that he thought some SEC coaches were joking that they think the hurry-up offense leads to more injuries.

      “Those of you who think he will not win in the NFL, you’re going to look bad. He will win in the NFL.”

      — South Carolina coach and future ESPN analyst Lou Holtz in 2002 on Steve Spurrier, who promptly went 12-20 in two years with the Washington Redskins. That’s slightly better than Holtz’s 3-10 NFL record.

    Reporter: But Marshall’s already on probation.

    Gus Malzahn: He is? Well, as of this moment, he’s on DOUBLE SECRET PROBATION!
