Osceola Swifter than War Eagle, Just Barely


Shayn Roby’s Take: It’s only fitting that Florida State’s shirts would have the score backwards, because that game was so near to being a loss that anyone could make the mistake.

Vanderbilt Out Duels Houston In BBVA Compass Bowl


Shayn Roby’s Take: The Vanderbilt Commodores became the SEVENTH SEC team to post a bowl victory this year, with the BCS National Championship Game yet to be played. The Auburn Tigers will represent the SEC in its quest for an eighth straight National Title in Division I College Football on Monday, January 6, 2014.

Perhaps somewhere today in heaven, Irby “Rabbit” Curry is smiling, as Vanderbilt out dueled Houston 41-24 in the BBVA Compass Bowl in Birmingham to cap off a season with a bowl victory for the second year in a row.

Prior to the Commodore victory, they were shown this inspirational video:

This video perhaps was inspirational to this year’s edition of the Commodores and helped create the right mindset and mental toughness to achieve another bowl victory.  Perhaps the spirit of “Rabbit” Curry is smiling, as some believe his spirit urged Vandy on to victory against Texas after Vanderbilt coach Dan McGugin told them about Curry prior to the game on October 22, 1921. …

College Football Bowl Results: Monday Dec. 30


Shayn Roby’s Take: Today’s Bowl Game winners were, Navy, Ole Miss, Oregon, and Arizona State. Mack Brown coached his last game at Texas. Arizona State left people scratching their heads as they were wondering how in the world the Sun Devils ever made it to the Pac-12 Championship game.

Final Regular Season Pro-Gridiron Roby Ratings


Shayn Roby’s Take: The Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos nailed down the top two spots in the final regular season Roby Ratings. Two teams, the Arizona Cardinals (10-6) and the Miami Dolphins (8-8) did not make the playoffs, but finished in the top twelve, but there was no room in the inn for them. Green Bay (ranked 17th) won the NFC North with an 8-7-1 record, and the Philadelphia Eagles (ranked 13th) claimed the NFC East with a 10-6 record.

Mrs. Dee Dee McCarron Screaming War Eagle?!?!?


Shayn Roby’s Take: Maybe there IS HOPE for peace in the Middle East. If even Alabama and Auburn fans can put their extreme disdain for one another aside, reconciliation is possible ANYWHERE!!! Indeed there may be hope for our planet after all.

Shayn Roby's College Sports

This year has brought a monumental change in human behavior that may sweep across our nation.  Never again will one American be able to hate another.  Well, maybe that’s stretching the Truth quite a bit.  However, something has happened that almost never happens.  An Alabama fan is rooting for Auburn during a football game.  Mrs. McCarron reportedly met Tre Mason in New York at the Heisman ceremonies and according to Graham Watson of Yahoo Sports, is rooting for the player and not necessarily the team.  The Crimson Tide mom tweeted this picture of a shirt that she ordered for the National Championship game.
