On we go.
Pedro (9:38 a.m.): Cam Newton — before stole our hearts, he stole our laptops.
Stacey (10:14 a.m.): Want me to call and karaoke Bon Jovi's "Always?"
Halcombe (10:37 a.m.): Bigger annoyance: Erin's choice of scarf or Herbie holding his pen like a mad day trader?
Halcombe (10:39 a.m.): I think if you put a hunk of cheddar in front of Tom Rinaldi he would become the rodent we all know him to be. I mean look at his teeth.
Halcombe (11:05 a.m.): Let's see, so Russ the Bulldog performed "admirably" according to Dari Nowkah? He licked himself and sat in an air conditioned doghouse. If that is so, then I perform admirably as well.
Pedro (11:10 a.m.): I'm glad the artsy folks at Kentuck are more skilled at port-a-potty locks than middle-aged women on the quad.
Halcombe (12:04 p.m.): Wouldn't be just like Ron Zook to beat Michigan State today and then go on a six-game losing streak and get fired at the end of the year?
Whit (12:59 p.m.): When you're in Texas look behind you.
Halcombe (1:57 p.m.): Third-grader statement of the obvious: "Vandy sure ain't very good."
Jamie (2:35 p.m.): (regarding level of nervousness) 5 — relative to preseason expectations.
Jamie (2:37 p.m.): 8 beers ago, nervous level was elevated.
Jamie (2:57 p.m.): Our one chance to score every possession is done. It was a good run.
Jamie (3:09 p.m.): That's 6-6 250 that you tasted 31.
Pedro (3:18 p.m.): The Mrs. on Chizik — "He's such a goob. Is that a wad of chew in his mouth?"
Pedro (3:22 p.m.): "If it's Dentyne, he's got the whole freakin' pack in there." Also, I'm impressed that Verne could mispronounce Mario Fannin's name — Mary-Oh.
Jamie (3:26 p.m.): I've asked this before but why listen to Bramblett? Like me listening to Jay Barker. I can't take homerism from my own side much less the other.
Eric St. Clair (3:31 p.m.): Kickers pumping their fists piss me off.
Jamie (3:41 p.m.): No idea why 80,000 people are booing. When you wrap your arms around a receiver, it will get called.
Pedro (3:46 p.m.): That Arky receiver went to the Nick Rymer School of Deception.
Whit (3:52 p.m.): Auburn apparently paying referees.
Jamie (3:52 p.m.): From the stands, with no review, that is a horrible call.
Maguire (3:53 p.m.): SEC officials have no concept of logic.
Whit (3:54 p.m.): CHEATER.
Pedro (3:54 p.m.): Helps us if AU is unbeaten, I suppose, but Arky got hosed on that one.
Maguire (4:23 p.m.): Ryan Pugh: the dirtiest player in college football, and also either deaf or an idiot.
Chad C (4:48 p.m.): (in response to Mallett's injury) Why the hell didn't we do that?
Halcombe (5:17 p.m.): Cam Newton did his best "Get to da choppa" dive. And now I must slap Scott van Pelt for keeping that in the back of my head.
Jamie (5:18 p.m.): McCalebb broke 1 tackle and almost housed it. Imagine if he could break 2!!
Chad C (5:21 p.m.): First one to 100 wins???
Jamie (5:46 p.m.): Basketball season is here.
Jamie (5:49 p.m.): This is really pathetic.
Whit (5:57 p.m.): Reeediculous.
Chad C (5:57 p.m.): We called it down. Apparently, they didn't hear us.
Jamie (5:57 p.m.): A win and Roof's head would be the ultimate.
Halcombe (6:00 p.m.): The real beauty of ESPN is the fact that they will somehow very poorly segue between the Ark-Aub game to the Miami Heat's latest preseason game. An artform.
Pedro (6:01 p.m.): What's the over/under on number of weeks this officiating crew gets a "vacation?"
Jamie (6:03 p.m.): Told you to take the over.
(Note: No he didn't.)
Jamie (6:11 p.m.): Imagine how many we could score with a stop or two.
Halcombe (7:48 p.m.): Actual comment by my 2-year-old when seeing Desmond Howard during Gameday halftime show: "Dare's da 'Merica's Got Talent man. Dat's him."
Maguire (8:07 p.m.): I think Jamie Christensen just walked past us. I started to yell "Money!" but thought better of it.
Pedro (8:17 p.m.): I gotta say — I'm kinda enjoying Eli doing play-by-play off the ESPN2 broadcast. Looks like parity is the word of the day for the east.
Chad C (8:20 p.m.): Eli Gold just said the KY fans are headed to cut down the B-ball nets after tonight's big win vs. SC.
Jamie (8:27 p.m.): Got blocked into him.
Maguire (8:41 p.m.): There's the Dont'a we know and love. And Ole Piss is a bunch of thugs.
Jamie (9:04 p.m.): State beats UF.
Maguire (9:11 p.m.): Will Urban Meyer die before Florida fans can call for his head?
Maguire (9:23 p.m.): Dammit! I'm sick of settling for 3 in the red zone. Feels too much like the Shula era.
Maguire (9:29 p.m.): DAMMIT.
Jamie (9:44 p.m.): McElroy has Jason Campbell Syndrome.
Jamie (9:51 p.m.): Holly Rowe just performed the most difficult task in sideline reporting: interview Nick Saban.
Jamie (9:52 p.m.): (on the possibility of Auburn scoring 70 vs. Ole Miss) Maybe. And we'll win by 10.
Jamie (9:58 p.m.): (on revising that to 750) Either way, we win by 10.
Jamie (10:09 p.m.): Ole Miss = 41 total yards. Gulp.
Maguire (10:51 p.m.): Is it me, or has this 3rd quarter been going on for about an hour?
Jamie (10:55 p.m.): 3 losses in the past 31 games should test anyone's patience.
Jamie (10:57 p.m.): Milliner is a liability at this point.
Maguire (11:35 p.m.): 6-1. Wasn't pretty, but I'll take it. We're sure gonna need that bye week. Roll Tide.
Amanda von (1:22 p.m., Sunday): Send the rev another text at 12:28 a.m. Sunday and you'll lose both your thumbs. You woke me AND my ire.
