jeffrey has yet to fill out a bio.
Kevin McGrady had a falling out of sorts with Bleacher Report over the content they wanted to push. Their standards did not meet his, and he left the site permanently. It had nothing to do with Auburn or any other team. He no longer visits or comments on the site.
You were right and Pike is off the team, but that will never change my opinion about prejudging minors. I never do this for players of any team, and especially not recruits in high school.
Yes Jeffrey you must be right on your opinion of a young man you have never met..........
I think the fact that UpDyke was on the campus at a school sponsored event after being asked to disassociate himself from the University is simply more proof that he needs to be locked up and the key thrown away.
What I was getting at with that statement is that the goal of the damage not that the damage was the same.
Of course, UpDyke could have easily poisoned someone by putting an unknown chemical in such a public area without the knowledge of the Owner. He did not care if he hurt someone or not.
1. Being interested in this topic does not indicate anything about you in my opinion. It is a current events subject that many are interested in.
We know exactly how old these oak trees are as they were a gift and planted. They are not a type of tree that is indigenous to the area. This type of oak grows wild only much farther south.
The Toomers Oaks have been healthy and in poor health several times in their lives. My wife and I thought their demise might be imminent in the early 80s. They have had replacements planted for over a decade now from the acorns of these trees in case they do come to an end.
It does not matter if the trees were in poor health before nor that rolling the trees might be damaging them. Those trees belonged to Auburn University and fans of Auburn University for decades. Since the trees were their property, they could do with them as they pleased.
What they did do with them was revitalize the trees with the assistance of some of the best experts in the nation. This was done as the trees were obviously held as important to the Auburn culture. It is no different than the Cherry Trees planted in our Nations Capital.
Harvy UpDyke was not just attempting to kill trees when he invaded the Auburn community and vandalized a historic cultural symbol. He was doing what all such criminals do, attempting to establish dominance through brutality and force his will on other people. It is no different than what a rapist attempts with their forceful and unwanted activity.
In his mind, Harvy UpDyke could care less about the trees. He intended to inflict permanent emotional harm to another group of people. He did this knowingly and willingly. He is no different in this respect than the person that mailed anthrax or any of the other terrorist that have been prominent in the news over the last years. It does not matter if he succeeded or not, it was his intent and mind frame that made this a horrific crime to society.
I think Harvy UpDyke should spend the rest of his life in jail as a safety precaution for the remainder of society. As in every community if living creatures, those that cannot control their urges to conform to the rules of the society must be removed from the society.
Kentucky fans started a riot in their own city and with fellow fans of their chosen team. They did not go to Kansas and destroy historic landmarks or expose and molest Kansas fans with their naked genitalia in public. They also did not assail the Kansas players before they took to the court for the game.
Fan is short for fanatic, and it appears Kentucky has an abundance of those that fit the description. Maybe Alabama fans can watch and learn from them in the future.
No, I have not paid any attention to Stefon Diggs. I did look up the comment and found it to be exactly what I would expect from a kid growing up in the D.C. area. Having lived in Alexandria, Va. and having frequented the area regularly over the course of a couple of years I found D.C. to be basically a very large Ghetto with an Island Oasis (U.S. Government) in the middle. Ignorance and racism were extremely common in my experience as were gang related belittling of females.
I think Diggs has a chance to escape all of that. It is a rare opportunity from that area and I hope he makes good on it.
It is only 9:07 and Auburn has 15 with all three papers faxed in signed. The only surprise for me so far is quarterback Jonathan Wallace. As thought Ja'Quay Williams has signed. This could throw my numbers off by one of course.
As far as the answer, you will not like anything I tell you so it is not relevant. The information you asked for was certainly contained in the response, you simply refused to see it.
Auburn can only take 23 commitments this class without pulling scholarships from the two walkons that earned them last season or pulling an Alabama and flushing some players on the roster. The roster has an overabundance of talent, so flushing players from it is not likely an option being considered even if the staff were allowed to do so.
This is why Auburn will likely only take between 20 - 23 players for this class instead of 25 in my opinion.
