Practice report, 8/14 (video included)

Hey everyone. Let's get to bidness.

  • Auburn's practice was pretty short today; 90 minutes or so. They were in shorts and shoulder pads. There was no contact. They worked on field goals and position-specific drills. The offense ran their offense at a frenetic pace at the end of practice. Defenders were on the next field over. It was just Tony Franklin relaying signals and the team running 'em quickly. It's called "NASCAR" in Franklin lingo.

  • Coach Tommy Tuberville said he still hasn't received a full academic report from the final summer semester. ``What happens is, a lot of these professors get their grades done and they don't send them all in. You know, they go on vacation or whatever, because it's between (semesters) and they don't get posted. We're not allowed to call or do anything like that. We're at the mercy of information coming to us as it comes."

  • Practices will be closed to fans and media from here on out. ``We'll hopefully have a little bit of an advantage going into the season with two new coordinators and people not knowing what we're doing. We've been pretty basic to this point."

  • DT Tez Doolittle was moving better than I've seen him this fall.

  • DE Raven Gray was not moving well.

  • Players are really happy to be leaving the intramural fields for the official football fields tomorrow. DT Sen'Derrick Marks said he feels like an old man every time he practices on the concrete-like surface on the intramural fields. ``Every day, you get shin splits or you leave with tendinitis. It's either or. The groud is so hard."

you're so nutty.

Actually ... entertaining. You're the Coen brothers of football video, which I guess makes you schizophrenic since there's only one of you.

Crudup, I did that without spell check. How's the catfish?

If that's what you are going after, then it's going to be a wild year.

The catfish was tasty when I could taste it. Today, not so much. Summer cold junk thanks to this little fella that runs around barefoot all the time in my crib utilizing only four total English word and the remainder alien.

Jay, should we count Ryan Wms out?

How about the Forbes cover and the article? Neat, huh? Kind of a Catch 22. It quickly became bragging material for some crimson persuaders but it's hardly a measure of one program's success, but rather just how much they were willing to surrender to the man. Gotta love that huge smile on Saban's face...that you've NEVER seen before. That smile says, "you're mine, baby I own you".
More power to Fonzerelli. He got game.

I guess you have to give it Bama fans....For a base that really has had nothing to cheer about, they will latch on to anything to be proud of/brag on, even if nothing they dicuss is related to on-the-field results.

Well, for some reason it won't give you the whole link. Just go to al.com and you'll find it.

I don't think Ryan Williams will play this season.

I've already noted that The Cyrkle sings about red rubber balls.

Interviews commencing momentarily. I'll be reporting back around 11:30...

Good Job Jay on "The Cyrkle', my dad grew me up on that music and always used to quiz me. That was one of his favs b/c the name of the band was so weird and that Paul Simon wrote the song.

Sad to hear about Raven Gray. Out team is just so nasty and has been since the Spring of 81' with the excetion of the last two Bowden years.

He was really big on The Association.

Why so sorry for Raven?

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Crudup. The reason I am sorry for Raven is because it looks like he wont make an impact this year.
