News of the day, 1/15
That included the unveiling of "the world's thinnest notebook."
Yeah, yeah. I know. You don't care. I'll prove a short synopsis at the bottom for the 6% who care.
We so incredibly humble that you'd spend an average of 67 seconds per day reading the Auburn blog on the 'net.
So what if there is no defensive coordinator. The show must go on. Auburn released its tentative spring schedule today, which included a small surprise.
Practice starts Feb. 28. The A-Day game will be held on March 29. Auburn will take time off during spring drills for Spring Break, which runs from March 17-21. Coach Tommy Tuberville generally doesn't like doing that. Last year's spring practices were over before Spring Break began.
I don't pretend to be a recruiting expert. I leave that to guys like Bryan Matthews and Jeffrey Lee and Jason Caldwell, who spend years analyzing these kids. I will say, though, that Auburn's recruiting class seems to be gaining significance. The group Tuberville, Inc., brought in last season was outstanding. Those three freshmen linemen performed way above expectations. Now the Tigers are emphasizing ultra-fast wideouts and they're committing by the half dozen. Surely a few of these kids will play next year. Auburn had a huge hole at WR and the coaches did what they're supposed to do -- find guys to fill the hole. I'm highly interested to see how this kind of speed translates in Tony Franklin's wide-open offensive system.
Injured basketball players Rasheem Barrett (ankle) and Quan Prowell (knee) practiced on Tuesday after missing work on Monday afternoon. Both are expected to play against LSU on Wednesday night.
So the new Apple notebook: Very slim. It's 3/4" at its widest point and fits easily into a manila envelope. The downside is that it includes a sluggish 1.6 GHz Intel processor (to conserve energy), has no optical drive and will cost $1,799.
I'll stick with my Powerbook G4 a while longer.
I'm a Mac geek and proud of it. I'm not one of those conscientious-objector guys, though. I attended elementary school in San Diego during the early 1980s and Apple computers filled our lab.
