@kennysmith does LSU

It Twitter is the Haiku of social media, then @kennysmith is its Basho… if Basho was an Auburn fan. And he was.

It's your kids, Marty. Something has to be done about your kids!
Kenny Smith's Saturday setup: It's your kids, Marty! Somethings gottta be done about your kids!

Wow. Watching [email protected] Better than I’d expected. 3rd-and15 for a tip-drill touchdown? Sooey.

We are divided … I think the Direct TV spot with Spade and Farley is terrific, others at the party think it inappropriate?

They are showing that Farley-Spade Direct TV spot a lot. @helmsb agrees that is a good one. How do you feel about it? http://is.gd/4zKwj

Watching football with @Ren_ @BrianMcAlister, @wennybrown and @davefranks22. Rocky top we’re singing your song waaaay out of key ….

Don’t watch the Michigan highlights if you dislike joints bending in improper directions. Nasty knee for the punt returner.

Clemson @ Miami has the hit of the week… Never leave your feet, number 86!

Tennessee gets shorted by the officials, but Kiffykins is dialing it up on the Tide just now.

On screen two (of five, because we are AWESOME) Miami scores to retake the lead.

Here comes Tennessee … Oh my …

I will sing Rocky Top correctly, if he kicks this field goal…

Blocked. Bama dodges a HUGE one today.

And I quote the Bama faithful: “Hey Vols, we just escaped with a victory from you…”

Watching the Kentucky-ULM game on Fox Sports South, with all of the ESPN graphic treatments. [email protected] in OT on screen two.

Football time. Tiger on Tiger violence.

Kodi Burns just ran north and south. Ben Tate is steadily being awesome. Now we’re getting somewhere.

Kodi Burns, still can’t find his man down the sideline. Sigh.

Well McClain has his false start in … Ziemba, the next one is yours, let’s go ahead and get it out of the way.

Dear SEC … Suspend THESE officials.

We tackled someone, where is the penalty?

Dear SEC, you should never ask these officials to ever appear in Alabama … I fear for their safety.

Penalty! Illegal interfering with the trajectory of the of the field goal attempt …

War Eagle and all coach, but why does every team get healthy against us?

I have discovered that I hate agreeing with Bob Davie (this has never happened before) but AU does look a lot slower than LSU.

Somebody warm up Caudle.

So wait … You’re saying the other team can be penalized too?!?

I’d like to apologize to Antonio Coleman. His senior season, having put off the NFL, should be better and injury-free.

You know what else Auburn men don’t do, Chizik? Foul every third play. Get on it.

Remember the 94 LSU game when Auburn kept getting interceptions? Maybe the 2nd half will be like that.

37 yards total offense. 37!

(Parenthetical, the number was actually 42. I apologize for depriving the Tigers.)

ESPN, which sometimes goes great lengths to protect against announcer bias, has a play-by-play guy wearing lsu beads.

Florida is in trouble at Starkville. #maroonistheonlycolorthatmatters

Points! We have points! 3-24

Eltoro, you shall not smack your chest when down by 21.

Is the lack of a Malzahn hurry up offense a concession to resting the defense?

Can I still blame Tubby et al?

Has Tebow ever had two pick-sixes in one game? Before tonight, I mean?

Looking at the graphic … We can’t consider Ole Miss and Georgia as potential wins. 47 yards for Todd tonight. Yeesh.

Folks often talk of a signature win. This will be Chizik’s signature loss.

Touchdown in garbage time. 9-31. Now let’s line up at midfield for the 22 point conversion.

Auburn vs LSU: 194 total yards offense in 2009. 320 yards in 2008. Todd: 47 yards passing 2009, 250 in 2008.

Kenny graduated from Auburn at the turn of the century. He worked in newsrooms across the region and then earned a master’s degree at UAB. He met and married a Yankee, who declared her Auburn allegiance at her first home game. She’s now on the faculty at Auburn. He’s finishing his PhD at Alabama and teaches at Samford University.
