n7009520_37673406_624.jpgSo, I come to visit Auburn Tron today. I bring with me a story from Lake Martin-and yes it involves how Lucky, Badass, Pimp, Sweet, Etc I am.We have all seen the pictures of Lake Havasu- everyone tied up drinking and partying. I find Lake Martin to be the Souths hot spot from time to time. I head out to Chimney Rock, usually where everyone ties up, parties, drinks, ets. So at the rock, we tie up with about Eight other boats. We have a great time, Bud Light, Miller Light, Tequila. My Buddy tells me this weekend is a Zero Tolerence weekend and John Law is out and looking. I shrug this, “Ah, we are just parked, I’ll get one of these girls to drive if we need” I proclaim. Low and behold we get a visit from the Law- He calls for back up, and three more Marine Police boats pull in to help. They mostly just check for underage drinking and life jackets. Two youngin’s get arrested for underage drinking off the boat next to me. He proceeds to pull his boat up next to mine, asks for everyones IDs. Everyone on my boat included. This checks out, and asks to see all my lifejackets, a throwable device, and a fireextinguisher, this checks out. Next question, “Are you in charge of this boat, sir?” -”Yes, I am.” -”how much have you had to drink sir?”-”I am not really sure”-”I am going to need you to put on a lifejacket and step over here on my boat”-”Okay, let me find one to fit my fat ass” (to will “Hey will, take a picture of me on the Police mans boat!)”-”The reason why I pulled you over here was because you told me you did not know how much you had to drink, so we are going to find out”-”Great! Well, Just let me assure you even though I am responsible for this vessel, there are other licensed individuals on board”-”Just blow right into this tube until I tell you to stop, sir”I blow and blow and blow, he finally gives me the okay that his machine has registered my situation.-”WAIT WAIT WAIT, before you tell me, can I guess?”-”sure”-”.12!”-”Sir, The legal Limit to operate a boat is .08″-”Oh, uh, .15 then!”-”Well, you blew a .079, you can step back on to your boat”-As I step back on to my boat, I proudly announce to the other boats of my Adventure aboard the Marine Police boat- assuring everyone that it was only .079- Everyone Cheers and we take a drink in victory. n7009520_37666152_9183.jpg I think you could say that this was a win, and I felt like if I did not post this, I just wouldnt be a proper friend to all you guys. By the way, the boat now wears two AU stickers in Pride!!! War Damn Eagle!n7009520_37673400_8704.jpgbpowell4au

Tony Franklin Keynotes

Tony Franklin was the keynote speaker at tonight’s Greater Valley Area Auburn Club meeting and he had several interesting things to say.


Here are some highlights:*He doesn’t believe in saying you are waiting on your players before you can run your system and that is an excuse for “losers.” He said that there was another coach constantly talking about how bad his current players were.

*Franklin said that neither Burns or Todd had separated from the other and that the best would play, but that the best might be a combo of both.

*He says that you do what it takes to win. If that means winning 51-50, you do it. He will never blame the defense, it is the offenses job to outscore the other team.

*He said that people were telling AU running back recruits that we wouldn’t run anymore and that we were in the “spread.” He says that Texas Tech is in the spread and throws it every play, so if their offense is the spread, Auburn doesn’t run the spread.

*Says that in the bowl game he told the other coaches if Brad Lester didn’t get at least 15 touches he would hand in his resignation. He noted that Eddie Gran pointed out that Lester only had four carries at halftime and so Franklin knew he needed to get him more involved.

*Says that Hugh Nall is one of the best offensive line coaches in the country.

*Says we should drop football because another school got all these five star players. He noted that there is only one football to go around and he feels that CTT has done a great job in having the right mix of stars with good solid football players.

*He said that when guys get to college, they aren’t two stars or five stars, they are football players.

*He was asked about using the tight ends and why Auburn hadn’t done that as much in recent years. He says that not using the tight ends was over and that Tommy Trott has a chance to be a star because he’s the rare blend of size, speed and hands.
