Bromberg's Fine Jewelry and printed attacks

If you haven't heard about the big stink in the state of Alabama over a jewelry store ad here is what was said in each ad, Alabama's and Auburn's. THanks to thebarner. You can definetly see why Auburn fans were pissed, and Alabama fans say "hey, it is what it is.

Gump4Heisman takes it a little further with his own ads, including She's an FSU skank, but you love her.

We like to ad our own for Georgia, and LSU since they feel left out.

Houston Nutt's Hunk of good meat in a pot

They trying to put my meat in a pot!
Fuck'em I'm going to Ole Miss!

1 rump roast or venison hind quarter
1 Sweet onion
1 Container of Mushroom pieces
1 Bell Pepper
4 tbsp of Mr. P's seasoning (or whatever your favorits rub or grilling seasoning you have)
1 tea Fennel Seed
1 tbsp Basil (fresh is best, just crush a leaf)
1 tbsp Oregano
2 tbsp of Olive oil
1 cup of wine (whatever you got, white or red)
Salt and Pepper
Some flour
3 cut up taters (mix in sweet taters if ya got'em)
4 cut up carrots
1 cut up apple
1/2 cup water

In skillet, with oil, brown diced onion, box of sliced mushrooms, large slices of bell pepper, and half of Mr. P's bold and spicy, and the fennel seed, basil, and oregano. Cook that stuff down and turn often to avoid burning. When nearly cooked down, add wine in.

Get your cut of rump roast or venison hind quarter ready to brown. I marinate it for a couple hours, then rub Butt Rubb or other preferred rub, salt and pepper. Lightly flour it. Take the onion, etc. mix out and set in a bowl. Leave some in, and now brown the roast real hot on all sides to seal in spices and meat flavors.

With your crock pot on high, first drop the roast in. Then the onion/shroom/peppers/wine mix. Then add cut up taters (and sweet taters), carrots, apple, and water.

After one hour, turn crock pot to LOW. Cook another 5 hours or so. (NOTE: At 3 hours, the juices may be flowing over - ladle that out to avoid a mess).

Complement with New Orleans Yellow Rice, a salad, and hearty bread.

Ride the Coaching Carousel





Houston Nutt
Nutt resigned rather than being fired as was first suspected. Houston compiled a 10-year record of 75-48 (.610) and two trips to the conference championship game. Word is they tried to keep Nutt but he shunned them, and who wouldn't after the way he was treated. I would not be Surprise if Nutt had the job at Mississippi before he left the Hogs

Mike Leach of Texas Tech? That would be a crazy hire, but apparently he is the frontrunner.

Will Muschamp,maybe not ready
Jim Grobe
is a good idea, Tommy Tuberville not happening Chris Petersen no one really knows but Nutt came from Boise Bo Pelini going to Nebraska Gary Patterson, Butch Davis
just signed an extension, Brian Kelly


Guy Morriss
Morriss was unable to produce a winning record in his five seasons, going 18-40 overall and 7-33 in Big 12 games. It's frickin Baylor, give the guy a chance, what is their ceiling anyway?

Rumor oddly enough was Houston Nutt until he took the Ole Miss job, who the hell will Baylor hire now? Art Briles
interviewing, Chris Petersen, Paul Johnson, Terry Bowden, Larry Fedora Who? Mike Singletary was a shoe in but he pulled his name from consideration to stay in the NFL.


Ted Roof
Duke has lost at least 10 games in three straight seasons, including a winless 2006. Roof finished his Duke tenure with a 6-45 record and only won one game in 2006 and 2007 combined.

Steve Logan, Chan Gailey, Gary Crowton, Charlie Weatherbie, Mike O'Cain, Paul Johnson, Rod Broadway (coach at Grambling), Turner Gill.

Georgia Tech

Chan Gailey

Gailey was 44-32 in six seasons at Georgia Tech but 0-6 against rival Georgia and I believe they have not lost less than 5 games since he has been there.

Rick Neuheisel, Randy Edsall, Will Muschamp, Skip Holtz, Jimbo Fisher


Lloyd Carr
The Carr era was marked by highs of winning a national title and five Big Ten crowns and lows of losing (a lot) to Ohio State. Carr's .752 winning percentage (121-40) ranks seventh among active coaches.

Les Miles
seems obvious, but I don't think it happens, Brian Kelly, Cam Cameron, Kirk Ferentz, Bob Stoops, Mike Trgovac.


Ed Orgeron
Coach O was fired a day after the Rebels blew a game against Mississippi State to finish the season 3-9 and go winless in the conference for the first time since 1982.

Houston Nutt: Ole Miss has had four or fewer wins in the last four seasons. Nutt is a great hire for the Rebels


Bill Callahan
Callahan's four-year stay was marked by the most embarrassing losses at a football program once among the mightiest. Interim AD Tom Osborne announced the dismissal one day after the Cornhuskers ended the season at 5-7 but we all knew it was coming.

Bo Pelini is the hire.

Turner Gill, Jim Grobe, Paul Johnson, Brian Kelly, former Wisconsin coach Barry Alvarez.

Northern Illinois

Joe Novak
Novak, who won more games than any Northern Illinois coach in modern history, announced his retirement after 12 seasons.

Scott Shafer, Mike Hagan, Mike Locksley, Mike Haywood, Pat Narduzzi, Jerry Kill.


Phil Bennett

Bennett, who is 18-48 in six seasons, will finish out the season. Expectations were high entering this season, with Bennett predicting the school's first bowl game since it received the NCAA-mandated death penalty in 1987.

Chan Gailey, Terry Bowden, Paul Johnson, Jon Tenuta, Major Applewhite.

Southern Miss

Jeff Bower
Bower resigned after capping his 14th consecutive winning season, ending a 29-year relationship as player and coach with the Golden Eagles despite accepting his 10th bowl invitation in the last 11 seasons.

Larry Fedora, Will Muschamp, Major Applewhite, Matt Viator

Texas A&M

Dennis Franchione

Franchione came to Texas A&M to restore the glory to the Aggies. He left with a mediocre record and an embarrassing scandal on his resume. Franchione resigned, ending a rocky five-year tenure.

Mike Sherman the former Green Bay Packers head coach and current Houston Texans assistant was hired to succeed Franchione. He was 57-39 in six seasons with Green Bay.

Washington State

Bill Doba
Doba and the Cougars agreed to part ways after after a 5-7 season in which the team missed going to a bowl game for a fourth consecutive year.


Mike Price
looks like he may be returning to his old job, Chris Petersen, Paul Wulff, Ed Orgeron, John L. Smith, Bob Gregory, Pat Hill

Urban Meyer’s Herban Turkey

Dude, Have you touched my hair?
Dude, come touch my hair.

1 Whole 12 to 14 pound turkey thawed

½ cup rosemary sprigs, fresh

½ cup sage leaves, fresh

1 ½ cup Italian seasoning

1 apple, quartered

stalk celery, halved

1 onion, halved

1 stick of butter, melted

Salt and Pepper

Remove giblets and neck from turkey; reserve for other uses if you are a sick bastard, Urban throughs them away after massaging them for a moment. Rinse turkey with cold water and pat dry. Loosen skin from the turkey breast a bit, rub some Italian seasoning under skin then smooth skin over herbs and back into place. Place apple, celery, the rest of the Italian seasoning, the rosemary, sage and onion into the neck cavity. Place the turkey, breast side up, on a rack in a shallow roasting pan; brush with melted butter. Sprinkle with salt and pepper (and some more Italian seasoning if you want). Pour a cup or two of water into the bottom of the pan. Cover turkey loosely with a piece of aluminum foil. Bake at 175° (lowest setting) overnight, in the morning baste the turkey with the juices. Turn the heat up to 375 uncover the turkey and continue to baste every ten minutes for about another hour or two. (meat thermometer should read 180 in the thickest part. Remove turkey and let stand 15 minutes before carving. Serve with gravy.

Alabama's 12* National Championships

I know someone writing a book about this, but the good doctor sums this up pretty well.

The Associated Press Poll has been active since 1936. The AP took their
final poll prior to bowl games from 1936 - 1964 and in 1966 and 1967.
They took their final poll after the bowl games in 1965 and from 1968 -

Debunking the Alabama National Championship myths:

1925 National Championship- Alabama claims they share this one with
Dartmouth. Who awarded the NC? Houlgate and Helms. Houlgate started his
system in 1927. So Bama won their 1925 NC using a formula that didn't
exist until 1927? Helms Athletic Foundation started in 1941. Another
incredible retroactive NC.

1926 National Championship- Alabama claims they share this one with 3
other teams with equal or better records! Once again it is the Helms
Athletic Foundation in 1941 that awards it!

1930 National Championship- The Davis poll says that Bama tied Notre
Dame for NC this year. This was the only one to award it to Bama. Notre
Dame was named NC in 6 polls! Parke Davis is another retroactive system!
He (an individual, not an organization) did his in 1933!

1934 National Championship- Alabama says they share this with two other
teams. The awarders are Dunkel, Williamson, and Football Thesaurus.
Dunkel was an individual who came up with his own system. Williamson was
a geologist who came up with his own system. Football Thesaurus first
appeared in 1946!

1941 National Championship- This is a complete joke. The AP ranked
Alabama 20th in the nation with 14 teams with better records in the top
20. Once again it is the Football Thesaurus that retroactively awards
it. Alabama finished 3rd in the SEC that year.

1961 National Championship- Finally a legitimate NC. One poll didn't
give it to Bama though.

1964 National Championship- While the AP did award the NC to Bama
(10-1-0), Arkansas had the better record, 11-0. Alabama played Texas in
their bowl and LOST. The AP final poll was before the bowl.

1965 National Championship- The AP gave this to Bama. That year there
were three teams with better records than Bama. Bama 9-1-1, Michigan St
10-1-0, Arkansas 10-1-0, Nebraska 10-1-0.

1973 National Championship- AP puts Bama 4th after their bowl game loss.
Bama claims a NC from the UPI poll that was taken before they met Notre
Dame in the bowl game and lost. There were 3 teams with better records
than Bama that year. The embarrassment of naming Alabama number one
caused the UPI to name champions after bowl games.

1978 National Championship- AP gives this to Alabama(11-1-0) even though
USC (12-1-0) had the better record Guess who Alabama lost to that year?
USC!!!!!!!!!. UPI gave the NC to USC.

1979 National Championship- Their second legitimate NC. Their first
Unanimous NC.

1992 National Championship- Their third legitimate NC. Their second
Unanimous NC.

Tommy Tuberville Chili!

For the Auburn fans at and Keep we are naming this chili Tuberville Chili, or keep Tuberville chili. If you are an AU fan and you love your coach then click the links above.

1 lb. Ground meat (beef, turkey, buffalo, you won't really be able to tell)
1 Large onion, chopped
2 cans stewed tomatoes with juice (I like to use Rotel hot and spicy, you can use a mixture of different kinds)
4 strips of bacon
Optional can of kidney beans
1 1/2 cups water, beer, or both
4 garlic cloves (crushed)
4 strips of bacon
1 teaspoon each of salt and pepper
5 jalapeno peppers diced
1 Bell pepper chopped
Add Tabasco sauce
2 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried thyme
2 tablespoons ground cumin
1 tablespoon chipotle powder
4 tablespoons of Chili Powder (or 2 Chili, 2 Cayenne)

In a large saucepan over medium heat, cook bacon until slightly crisp then remove (leave the grease though, especially if you are using ground turkey or a leaner ground meat, if you are using a fatty ground, use less bacon). Add in the garlic, onions, bell pepper, and ground meat and saute until meat is no longer pink and onions are soft. Add the jalapenos and cover for 5 minutes stirring occasionally (this will let the jalapeno flavor cook into the meat). Then add in all the other ingredients, thats the beauty of chili, you can just throw everything in and let it simmer. Once your bacon is cool enough crumble it up in your hands and toss that in. Bring it all to a boil and cover and let it simmer atleast 20 minutes, but i like to let mine simmer for an hour or more so that the spices have plenty of time to dig in. It is always better the next day. Put it in a bowl and eat it as is, I like to eat mine over rice with cheddar cheese on top.

If the chili is too watery for you, add in some flour or file powder to thicken it up. Makes a lot of chili.
