The top 10 SEC signal callers of the 1990’s

Good stuff from Road Warriors Radio blog and the boss Ryne Hancock. Good to see an MSU QB crack his list. Even though there are some good ones on this list, it shows how much better QB play has gotten from 2000 on.


Parole Tide: Harvey Updyke to be released from jail Monday

The worst part of his plea deal is no talking with the media. That means we have to wait 5 years for the public display of remorse from Harvey. I actually would like to see if his experience gained him any sanity.

Sentenced in March for poisoning the oak trees at  Auburn’s Toomer’s Corner, Harvey Updyke will be released from jail on Monday, according to

Updyke has been incarcerated for six months as part of a three-year split sentence. He was already credited with 104 days of jail time when he agreed to plead guilty to one count of unlawful damage of an animal or crop facility two months ago. Once out, Updyke will be placed on five years of supervised probation.

Updyke will not be allowed to attend any college sporting event or talk with media, and is banned from any Auburn University property as part of his plea deal.

The Lee County District Attorney’s Office is also seeking $1 million in restitution from Updyke. The oak trees at Toomer’s Corner were finally removed in April.
