News of the day, 10/3

Hey everyone. I had a good time yesterday talking with Eddie Gran about Antoine Carter. Gran recruits south Florida. Carter is from Ft. Lauderdale. Gran said Carter's family is one of the most respectful groups of people he's ever met. Dad is career military. Mom works for the post office. I liked Gran's synopsis so much that I wrote a story about Carter for today's editions.

Check below for the link.

So what are people talking about? I'm getting emails about Brad Lester. People want to know how much he'll play against Vanderbilt. I say he gets 12 carries for 72 yards and one touchdown. Remember that he's never before been a featured back. Well, never for more than one game. Tuberville wants to work Lester in slowly.

We're exuberant here at T.H.A.B.O.T.N. headquarters because you again have arrived for a peek at The HOTTEST Auburn blog on the 'net. We have been expanding our international reach since the Tigers' win over Florida.

HELLO ARMENIA!

I'm surprised by the relative lack of publicity generated by S Zac Etheridge. I know I'm partially responsible for that, but I've never received a single question about the kid. He's been the team's No. 2 defensive producer this season behind another underrated guy in CB Jerraud Powers. Talk all you want about the linemen and LB Tray Blackmon. A lot of those guys are good, too. Those top two defensive backs, though, are the ones playing the most dynamic roles: Pass defense and run defense.

Speaking of Blackmon, did you even notice him against Florida? I watched him a few times and he was getting caught up in the "garbage" along the defensive front. He didn't make many plays. I didn't think that ankle injury was all that bad. I was wrong. Blackmon at full speed is an excellent play-maker. He's just not there right now.

LT King Dunlap has played with more vigor during the past week or so. I think he'll get a chance to play during the next few weeks. Ryan Pugh is the starter and will stay there as long as he a.) keeps producing and b.) C Jason Bosley stays healthy. Big Snacks Berry is listed as the second-team C, but it's really Pugh.

I'll bite. Tell us about Zac Etheridge. What is it about him that makes him standout to you?

Also, heard about Jerry or Delorean lately?

I've been tootin Zac's horn for the past few weeks. I think he is well on his way to being All SEC(maybe not this year but for the next 3). He's made a couple of freshman mistakes but overall has been solid and tough. His development has allowed Brock to slide into our depleted LB corp and provide some help there. Also I think our secondary is getting better and more confident. They have the speed and skills to match up with any WR's. No worries there for the next few years.

I also think Jermarcus Ricks is an unsung hero.

We call him Jake. It's Jake Ricks.

I've been really impressed with Zac and Aairon Savage. They are some hard hitters. I'd like to see Savage improve his pass anticipation. He still misses too many assignments. Savage is hell against the run, though.

Patrick "Sparky" Martyn was an unsung hero on that team the past couple of years. Why no stories on him?

You're thinking of Jamocha.

Jay, who do you think is the fastest player on team?

James Swinton is the fastest.

The second tier is Tristan Davis, Robert Dunn and Fannin. I've heard Pat Lee is right there with them. I haven't confirmed that directly.
