Practice report, 8/21

Hey everyone. As discussed earlier, I'm trying to host videos on the Advertiser's website. Here are my reasons: The files are much smaller (quicker upload for me), flash video works more efficiently for me and the video quality is better for you.

Everyone's a winner.

So we're going to give this a try. You will need a relatively recent version of Shockwave, which is a pretty standard plug-in these days. I'm pretty sure you have it. Let me know if you have technological obstacles. We'll leave no HOTTIE behind.

Flash video:


Here are some mildly interesting things that were discussed after practice today.
  • DT Zach Clayton missed practice with a sprained neck. His position coach, Don Dunn, said that was done as a precaution. Dunn believes Clayton will be back at practice no later than Sunday.

  • There will be no follow-up scrimmage.

    "We're about done hitting," coach Tommy Tuberville said.

  • Tuberville compared freshman CB Neiko Thorpe to former Auburn CB Carlos Rogers, which is remarkably high praise.

    ``He has tremendous upside," Tuberville said. ``He can make up for a lot of mistakes and in that position, a guy who can do that can cover a lot of ground. He plays with his eyes really well."

  • Tuberville guessed that 10 true freshmen will play this season. He allocated playing time to 18 newcomers last season. The coach said he'll start narrowing his list this weekend. He'll be busy: Tuberville is hosting the seniors tonight for the annual Steak Dinner Powwow.

    "We're going to talk about the season," Tuberville said. ``We do it every year and it's always good. I let each one of them talk about their three, four or five years and what they expect, what they've seen and what good of shape we're in. I let them kind of vent tonight, which is always good to find out the pulse of the team."

  • Auburn's athletic media relations director, Kirk Sampson, said today that Auburn's 2009 A-Day game will be played on March 28. If you're into planning ahead -- way way way ahead -- go ahead and make those hotel reservations.

What's the song in the outro? Very nice.

Antonio Coleman calls for the NC!

Way to step out there, man!

The music is ... I really don't know. Sounds pretty cool to me.

Don Dunn showed considerable restraint by not batting away the recorder that sat an inch from his ear. It reminded me of Will Ferrell in the More Cowbell skit.

That was pretty dang spiffy dude. I hope you're saving all this stuff. It's going to be great footage for the NC video.

Thanks, guys.

I'm also collecting footage for a bloopers reel I'll build at season's end. We had a doozy today when someone ... uh ... let one rip just before CTT started his chat.

He was trying to determine the originator. It was funny to watch.

I was going to make a comment about Phillip shoving that microphone in Dunn's face, but somebody already beat me to the punch. That was the highlight of the video for me.
