I don't think it's fair to imply that Auburn upcoming football season is dependent on Kiehl Frasier. Although it is a fairly well accepted axiom that a team who has a freshman starting QB in the SEC is in trouble, there have been some well known exceptions e.g. Johnny Manziel. Also, Nick Marshall is an incoming QB candidate who ran a very successful and similar offense last year at a JC. If (and right now that's a big if) he pans out, Auburn's offense may see a very significant turnaround from 2012. And Johnson, although he will be a true freshman who would certainly benefit from a redshirt season under ideal conditions, has shown he has the tools, admittedly at the HS level, to run this offense effectively. August and September certainly will not be a boring period if you're an Auburn fan. When was the last time Auburn had a returning QB to run the offense? 2007 Hopefully, this time next year we'll have a returning starting QB ready to run the offense in 2014 along with a returning coaching staff with a great first season and three great recruiting classes under their belts.

If you read this article you will be dumber having finished it. We (Auburn people) have to get past this archaic way of thinking that a freshman can't come in and win games. IE Johnny football.... The game has changed either we change with it or get left behind. I'm so tired of hearing about waiting on Frazier to figure it out that I could screeeeeam! We need to start the person who gives us the best chance to win period!!!

Something college students should pay attention to: there's a propaganda trick being used against you to push these bans. It's called the "Bandwagon Fallacy." SmokeFree Campuses and "Americans for Nonsmokers Rights" will claim that over a thousand campuses are now TOTALLY "smoke-free." You'll find that YOUR campus, even though it only had an indoor ban and doorway rule, is likely on that list. U of Michigan (or was it Minnesota... sorry, I forget...) is on the list and just last week they had an article complaining about all the butts on campus and how over a third of the student body hadn't noticed ANY decrease in campus smoking since they joined the "Smoke Free" list. Even though 1,000 campuses is only about a fifth of the country's total, that's never mentioned either. The whole idea is to make the students at each beleaguered campus feel totally isolated and alone if they resist. They're told "Everyone ELSE is doing it! Do you want OUR campus to be backward or the last?" Don't be fooled by their lies. Go to http://tinyurl.com/SmokingBanLies and read about the tricks they play. - MJM

Walt Cody made the point I was going to make. Smokers and non cohabitated with no problem. When I was in college in the late 70's/early 80's there was one table that was designated non-smoking in the main dining hall. It was usually vacant. All this hysteria is a manafactured issue. Just as the nuts in the early 20's century preached fire and brimstone for smokers, not it's a long a painful death for everyone you know.

Yes, good for you and good for the students who are flouting an irrational rule. That, too,is a good old American tradition. But you're wrong about one thing here. Smokers and nonsmokers have not always been at odds. To the contrary. Pretty much from the 1930s to the '90s, smoking was a non-issue. Smokers and nonsmokers lived side by side in peace and harmony. A 1950's national survey conducted by Ernst Dichter (soc majors, take note) showed that the vast majority of nonsmokers actively liked the smell of tobacco smoke. IOW, this has been a purposely manufactured division--created by vast amounts of propaganda (most of it paid for with taxpayer money) and junk science (either funded by government bureaucracies or pharmaceutical companies who just so happen to sell nicotine replacement products). That's not idle speculation; google it, check it out, If you wonder why, again, look into it. There are a lot of good websites, like Christopher Snowdon's velvetgloveironfist.blogspot.com and a lot of good books by sane people. Jacob Sullum's "For Your Own Good," Look into it.

"During the day when most of us are trying to get to class or to work doesn’t seem right. Using these officers to enforce unnecessary traffic violations seems excessive when a couple of officers on foot could perform the same tasks." Do you mean you would rather have officers on foot to do this because you can get away easier than if they were on bikes. Or do you mean its ok for you to break the laws of this country and state because you are a student and or going to work. When is it ever ok to break the law. These police officers are charged with up holding all the laws of this land, they did not make the laws. Maybe if you would follow the rules then you would not get stop. You more than likely are complaining because you have been on the receiving end of some tickets yourself. So you think its ok to post your opinion in a publication to rant and rave on police while your the one breaking the laws. The rest of us are not getting stop because we follow the laws. It's not hard, it's mostly common sense which you apparently don't have.
