Look at the money falling on Auburn!
Filed under Auburn's Cast of Thousands, What's Bet In Vegas Stays In Vegas
Like many who have opined on this site, I’m not seeing Auburn as an elite team in 2015. However, rather than take offense at the lofty praise coming their way, I welcome it. Let’s see how Gus, his new QB, and Auburn fanbase handles these high expectations once the games begin. Richt has not fared too well seasons beginning with a fawning punditry.
My case against Auburn this year: 1) Bama still good, 2) Marshall gone, Johnson not an improvement, 3) SEC West schedule, 4) rabbit’s foot missing, 5) I hate them. Ok, the last one doesn’t have much bearing, but still felt it belonged.
6) They have to change offenses ’cause their new starting QB is a statue; 7) Their D isn’t any good and it will take more than a new DC and one year to fix it; 8) I hate them…wait…that one’s already been used……
There’s a sucker born every minute.
Noticed the Laremy Tunsil story while I was over at CBS Sports.
Arrested on domestic violence for punching his step father. Hugh Freeze is already on the record as being proud of Tunsil for committing the assault and being arrested for domestic violence.
We are a little more than a month removed from the SEC’s new domestic violence policy and we already have a high profile player arrested for domestic violence and a coach saying that he is proud of him for doing it.
You couldnt make this stuff up.
I don’t know all the details, certainly. But there is a difference between the domestic violence that is hitting a woman and the domestic violence which is allegedly protecting your mother from your stepfather.
I dont disagree, but also add in that the step father is saying that Tunsil was the aggressor and has received a restraining order against Tunsil.
My point is should any SEC coach be on the record as being proud of any of their student athletes getting arrested for a violent crime?
Practical question. How can I go directly to these articles at CBS Sports from the link. I get redirected to the All Access ad. I tried signing in through Facebook and still get redirected. This is probably me being stooopid. Give a bro a hand.
I have no idea. I havent been able to figure it out. I just always go and search for the story now.
wait a second….
one check to see if that link goes directly there.
Secondly on my pc, if you hit the escape key after clicking the link and wait a second it will take you to the page.
The esc seems to interrupt the redirection script and then just the page loads.
so you have to be quick on the ESC key after you click the link.
basically it has to happen while the URL has the redirect link in the address bar.
Sax, I wish I could help. But I’ve never had a problem with that, so I don’t know how to answer your question.
It seems to work from my phone, but not when on my computer. I always get the redirect page.
Had the same problem on the iPad. Finally figured out to press on the link to get a pop up menu and select “Open in new tab.” Should be able to right click the link on a pc to get a similar option.
Right clicking/Open in new tab doesn’t help in Chrome but the the escape key trick worked. IE worked natively. Open in new tab in IE takes you to the ad. Senator probably using IE.
Not just you
Thanks, everybody. I use Chrome, and I thinking this is another browser choice issue. I’ll figger it out.
Copy link and open in your browser.
No go with chrome… works with Firefox… :dunno:
The escape key worked!

I’m not drinking the Kool Aid.
OK but you’ve still got to eat the Waffles!
Waffles yes, AuBoom Kool Aid no. Loved the Sly video!
It’s the Waffle House ®™© ℠ bowl where syrup is not a vegetable
Love waffles. Unfortunately I’ll be in AuBoom for the game. Waffles won’t be free there.
But the water will be free and plentiful if the Dawgs win.
Free only for those dressed in red and black and woofing.
