News of the day, 8/5
Hey everyone. Skip down if you're looking for practice information. I have something else pressing that needs to be discussed first.
I started today's blog early because I've been noticing something awkward lately. Faithful readers will recall me railing about the seemingly inflated gas prices at Auburn-area stations in relation to Montgomery stations. Last year, Auburn was approximately 12 cents per gallon more expensive.
Guess what? Somehow, that has changed.
Gas at the Auburn Spectrum station (Wire Rd. & Shug Jordan Pkwy.) currently is at $2.66/gal.
Gas at the Montgomery Raceway station (East Blvd. & Carmichael) currently is at $2.70/gal.
How does that happen?
I watched the linemen again today because it's pretty enagaging stuff. They go man-against-man and there's nowhere to hide. You generally either beat or get beat. It's even occasionally.
Here's what I saw today.
Sen'Derrick Marks vs. King Dunlap -- even
Pat Sims vs. Ty Green -- even
Josh Thompson vs. Leon Hart -- Hart won.
Mike Blanc vs. Mike Berry -- Berry won.
Bryant Miller vs. Antwoin Daniels -- Daniels won 2 of 3, but the loss was really bad.
Mike Goggans vs. Oscar Gonzalez - Gonzalez won.
Zach Clayton vs. Byron Isom ("Ice") -- even. Both of these guys looked good.
Tez Doolittle vs. Ryan Pugh -- Pugh won in my estimation. Impressive for a freshman.
Thompson vs. Nathan Farrow -- Thompson won.
A.J. Greene vs. Andrew McCain -- even
Bo Harris vs. Jared Cooper -- Harris was slightly better, but he's unrefined.
Clayton vs. Chaz Ramsey -- Clayton embarrassed him.
Blanc vs. Jackson Timmerman (walk-on) -- Blanc won.
Miller vs. Bart Eddins -- Miller won easily.
Brent Slusher vs. Lee Ziemba -- Ziemba. Only one play.
Antonio Carter vs. Ziemba -- even. Only one play.
Carter vs. Gonzalez -- Gonzalez won.
There were a few others after that, mostly involving Bo Harris.
