I am a second-generation Auburn man. I got to see Bo, Barkley, and Big Hurt all play while I earned two degrees in accounting from AU between 1983 and 1988. I now work as an accountant for the City of Sandy Springs in Georgia, while living in the town of WInder (about 20 minutes from Athens, the home of the Bulldogs).

“Walking on the Fighting Side of Me”

By Posted on: July 30th, 2013 in Football, Other Sports 11 Comments »

I can be an angry kind of guy sometimes. Often when I am in the confines of my home, office, or car, some minor annoyance will cause me to start spouting out words and phrases that my mother CERTAINLY NEVER taught me nor approves. Nonetheless, rarely do I unload any kind of anger or even Continue Story…

                                                                                           A smartly dressed Auburn man. A few months ago, while I was driving to work, I reached the end of my cul-de-sac where a stop Continue Story…

To Forgive, or Not to Forgive (that IS the question)

Six months of prison, about half of which has already been served, with a laughable probation after that.  And when he gets out, he’ll be a hero to thousands, if not millions, for the rest of his pathetic life.Upon first reflecting on this, I figured that if Hell didn’t exist already, God would have to Continue Story…

                                 The last roll will take place on April 20, 2013. (Author’s note: In view of the fact that our Oaks’ time on the Plains is drawing to a close, I thought I would update and re-run the first article Continue Story…

One spring afternoon in the mid-Eighties, having previously seen the invitation painted on the cafeteria windows, I began walking from my class at Haley Center over to Foy Union to sign up for the College Bowl academic competition.  As I started toward Foy, I noticed a fellow of large stature (who naturally stood out from Continue Story…

As my previous articles have shown, I’m not a very knowledgeable football analyst, so I tend to write more about what I know, such as my own experiences as an Auburn fan. Now that the rock-‘em, sock-‘em orgy of analysis and prognostication that is National Signing Day has come and gone, I thought that I Continue Story…

Between the Hedges: An Auburn Man’s Sanford Saga

By Posted on: November 7th, 2012 in Football 9 Comments »

One bright, shiny, gorgeous Autumn day in 1997, I was sitting in my home in Flowery Branch, Georgia (having moved from Florida via South Georgia) when it struck me that a significant football game was going to be played that day in a city a mere 45 minutes away, in a venue that was hallowed Continue Story…

I started writing this after the Arkansas game, with a plan to finalize it after a week or two would either confirm or evaporate my fears and suspicions–and confirmed they are. First off, I know that myself and others in the Auburn blogosphere often use the phrase “the Barfield era” with a heapin’ helpin’ of Continue Story…
