Dad (1:14 p.m.): Yes he is playing.
Halcombe (1:17 p.m.): Which makes you happier as a 'Bama fan: Beatin Carolina in the SEC title game w/no shot at a nat'l title OR watching Auburn have to forfeit an undefeated season?

Zach (1:20 p.m.): He's dressed.
Maguire (2:08 p.m.): How long did you last on the Auburn Network broadcast? I couldn't stomach Chizik's BS about "family" any more. What are they, some sort of crime syndicate?

Maguire (3:32 p.m.): I think Cam's got his mind on his money and his money on his mind today.
Maguire (4:08 p.m.): Fairley's got to be juicing. He acts like Lattimer in "The Program."
(Note: for more on this, click here.)
me (4:26 p.m.): “Coach, can you explain this ridiculous shirt you wear every week?”
Halcombe (4:41 p.m.): We don't need no stinking badgers.
Rob (5:36 p.m.): Galletes!
Dad (5:52 p.m.): AU announcers are painful to listen to.
Pedro (6:01 p.m.): Also, booing an injured player who might be faking is "sophisticated," per Gary.
Whit (6:44 p.m.): 'Bama getting dominated at NG right now.
Whit (6:49 p.m.): I didn't get a harumph outta that guy!

Maguire (7:51 p.m.): Aquarius!

me (8:08 p.m.): First drive is key…
Whit (8:09 p.m.): No! I will not get out of my seat. You're not the boss of me, jumbotron!
me (8:15 p.m.): 8!
Maguire (8:15 p.m.): I'm gonna miss that kid, and not just for plays like that.
Whit (8:16 p.m.): He's here?
Maguire (8:17 p.m.): Maybe more for things like that block on Mark's long run in the 2nd quarter.
me (8:22 p.m.): The shrieking State fan next to me is drowning his sorrows in soggy nachos.
Dad (8:32 p.m.): O-line could not block a Girl Scout troop.
Maguire (8:33 p.m.): And McCarron's popularity grows ...

Dad (8:50 p.m.): A 23-pound honey ham.
Whit (8:51 p.m.): McCarron looks confident.
Maguire (8:52 p.m.): That was dumb.
me (8:58 p.m.): That, by the way, is an early preview of the A.J. McCarron era. That guy’s triple-covered? Why not?
Pedro (8:59 p.m.): McCarron got a spanking from Saban on national TV for that drive.
Maguire (9:02 p.m.): It may well be the Phillip Sims era.

Whit (9:14 p.m.): D-line is still getting worked in the middle.
me (9:22 p.m.): 1 random dude in our section ringing a cowbell. Looks like he’s collecting for the Salvation Army.
Dad (9:23 p.m.): Santa?
Maguire (9:23 p.m.): Maybe he is. Never too early to start, I guess.
me (9:29 p.m.): No “Rammer Jammer” tonight…
Maguire (9:31 p.m.): Wondered what was up with that.
me (11:55 p.m.): So all you Republi-kins that helped me win, I’d sincerely like to thank ya ...

gameday texts: State edition
Here is this week's edition of "Gameday Texts," wherein we post funny, poignant and memorable things people text me. As always, the time stamps and names are as they appear in my phone. Also as always, feel free to leave your own memorable texts here in the comments section, or by finding me on Twitter. Special thanks to my friend Daniel for compiling some texts he received from me, then emailing them to me. Not sure if that will make this week better or worse.
