The Daily Believer: 11.09.09

The Daily Believer is your daily dose of whAUtever, a dose that grows by the second, minute, hour, who knows. Maybe there’s something going on tonight at the Gnu’s Room. Maybe there’s a volleyball game. Maybe there’s some update to The War Eagle Reader you need to know about. Maybe last night’s episode of House referenced Bo. Maybe Pat Dye’s Pants have no reserve on eBay. In other words, we’re live-blogging Auburn – town, gown, idea – and we need your help. Are you putting on an event? A show? Let us know. Know about one? Let us know. Spot Chizik at Byrons? Let us know. Did you see that episode of House? Let us know.

*** Auburn coaches, past and present, are in the mix for the now-vacant head coaching position at the University of Memphis.

According to ESPN this afternoon: “Memphis is expected to attempt to hire a high-profile coach. Possible candidates include former Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville; Division II North Alabama coach Terry Bowden, another former Auburn coach; Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn; and LSU assistant Larry Porter, the former Memphis running back.”

Let the hand-wringing about Malzahn’s departure begin … anew! — [JMC – 3 p.m.]

*** Chris Todd’s one incomplete pass vs. Furman.

Bounced off the finger tips of a lunging Kodi Burns. There’s irony or something like it there somewhere.

The 17 other passes broke Jason Campbell’s single-game record for completion percentage. — [JDH – 2:25 p.m.]

*** Hey Jenny Slater’s Doug Gillett, in 2005, on AU-UGA, 2004:

At least when Georgia got prison-shower-raped by Auburn last year, we could just throw up our hands and say well, Auburn was an unstoppable juggernaut preordained by God to roll to 13-0 by napalming every team in their way.

Check out that necklace thing.

Carnell ‘Cadillac’ Williams might be the best bowler in the NFL. His high game is 279. Nine strikes in a row.

I’ve never been under that much pressure on a football field.

Also, he doesn’t hate, just “strongly dislikes” Bama. Sounds like a personal problem.

But I think my favorite quote of this Q’n’A is the McCalebb-esque response to a question regarding his Web habits:

The other weekly question is, what Web site do you visit the most?

I’m not real big on sitting on the computer. But I have to admit, the Web site I visit the most is probably Bank of America. I visit that one a lot. Let’s just say I visit Bank of America very frequently.

*** You know… just cause.

I mean, it was so obviously an interception, I got up and left the room. Didn’t need to stick around. ‘Alright,’ I thought. ‘LSU’ll have one more chance. Now for a ginger beer…’ 

My Dad was at Wild Wings. Lots of Bama fans watching. ‘They knew it was an interception.’ — [JDH – 9:15 a.m.]

*** A few hours after he announced he was coming to Auburn, Michael Dyer racked up 221 yards and 5 touchdowns. — [JDH – 8:32 a.m.]

*** In case you haven’t seen, there are, I think, 99 sideline photos from Kevin Strickland located here. — [JDH – 8:30 a.m.]

*** The Plainsman’s News Editor goes to The Fest? Yes. The Mobile Press-Register reads TWER? Maybe. — [JDH – 8:30 a.m.]

Bo Jackson’s daughter Morgan Jackson, a sophomore in Communication Disorders, never pays for parking tickets. Nor should she.

And she can apparently still ring up Nike and get anything she wants, which is good to hear.
