Ok, lets talk #CFBPlayoff Poll. Time is limited this morning so lets just run through the Top 15. For those of you who signed up as a patron (thank you) or those who have followed long; you know the drill. There is no eye test. The committee uses a well defined process. 🧵
If you read this on Monday, last night was all old news and you already knew what to expect. If you like the suspense of the four letter network's reveal show be warned. #SpoilerAlert
15 #BYU
SOS: 44, QW: 5, T25W: 0, GC: 4.9

#BYU modeled at 17, so no surprise here. Good SOS, Tied for the most QWs in the poll. Game Control is low, but with a SOS in the Top 50, they'll get a pass. No surprise at 15.

I'm honored to announce that while other universities are cutting #AfAm and Diaspora programs @Auburn_History IS HIRING an Africanist/Diaspora specialist next year!

I'm on the search committee so hit me up with any questions.

So proud of my department for their unfailing support for this position and our amazing @DeanJoe_AUCLA as head of @AULiberalArts for showing his commitment to the field through this position and showing that budgets are moral documents that reveal true priorities.

On Wednesday after 51 years, Harold Franklin, the student activist who integrated @AuburnU in 1964, defended his 1969 M.A. thesis w/ the unanimous approval of the faculty @Auburn_History. Hear him tell his story in confronting institutional racism & why #reparations are still due Image
Here is the first part of the M.A. defense where Dr. Franklin tells the story of why he decided to work with @NAACP attorney Fred Gray to desegregate #Auburn and the racism my department inflicted upon him while he was here.
For a longer version of the desegregation process at Auburn that contextualizes it within the wider Civil Rights Movement see Dr. Franklin in conversation with Auburn's head of Special Collections Martin T. Olliff here…

My colleagues at @Auburn just completed a study confirming that racism is killing Black people---at the CELLULAR level. Their work in medical bio-genomics calls "racial discrimination, a particular type of social toxin.” #WarEagle #BLM…
The added stress of racism is measurable in the "the length of telomeres—the repetitive sequences of DNA at the ends of chromosomes that protect the cell." More rapid cell breakdown means more rapid aging and more rapid death.
While racism has long been tied to premature aging & premature death from stoke, heart attack, etc. these new findings establish that the link is probably causal. Increased racism is CAUSING early death independent of other factors (poverty, education, health care access, etc.)

Time Management as a Student-Athlete

This will be primarily aimed at Freshmen due to how challenging the transition can be.

Being on time is the biggest factor in gaining both your coaches and teammate's respect. Always make sure you know where your classes and the facilities you will be training at are prior to going the first time.

If you don't know where a building is, grab your other freshman friends and walk around till you find it. This will make sure that you will be on time the next day.

By grabbing your friends, you are also being a leader which is huge on an athletic team.

Some context on #StevenLeath as he and Auburn move on from what has been a difficult two-year tenure, and I prepare for what will be my fifth president after 13 years on Auburn's faculty.
1) His tenure got off to a bad start because the trustees cloaked the search in secrecy. It was only after he was confirmed as AU's president that stories emerged of airplane accidents and land purchases. These were not openly discussed before, so he started with PR negatives.
2) Yes, the Research I designation is awesome and beneficial, but it is short-sighted to neglect Dr. Jay Gogue's role in getting Auburn there. Leath deserves credit for finishing the journey, but it did not all happen during his tenure.

Mi 4º hilo de Tradiciones habla de la leyenda del “12th Man” de Texas A&M, que ahora inspira a una de las gradas más ruidosas del College Football. Lugar emblemático. Especial. Un auténtico jugador número 12. #GigEm

(Si os gusta el hilo, agradezco RT)
Esta leyenda del jugador nº12 ha pasado de generación en generación y aún sigue (y seguirá) inspirando a la sección de estudiantes de la universidad de Texas A&M durante sus partidos. Ellos son ahora el “12th Man”. #GigEm

La 1ª vez que se usó el término “12th Man” (que se tenga constancia) fue en una revista de la Universidad de Minnesota en septiembre de 1900, hablando de los hinchas como “una misteriosa influencia en los equipos”. Los fans empezaron a ser llamados el 12º jugador de los equipos.
