Tuberville previews The Big Scrimmage

Coach Tommy Tuberville recently spoke at length about The Big Scrimmage to be held Saturday. Nobody can watch, of course, but we still can talk about it. We talk about the easter bunny, too.

  • It'll include "80 to 100 plays" ... not including special-teams work.

  • It won't include WR Mario Fannin (hamstring), TB Tristan Davis (foot) or Sen'Derrick Marks, whom Tuberville said needs rest. I suspect TB Brad Lester (ankle) could be out of action as well.

  • TB Ben Tate apparently is fine. He's playing on Saturday. He was working on the side yesterday with those guys listed above (in addition to Big Snacks Berry), but I guess Tate's injury was less significant.

  • Watching Tate and Berry work some shuttle runs together Thursday afternoon may have been my 2008 highlight so far. Talk about an odd couple.

  • Tuberville likes DE Jomarcus Savage a lot and thinks he may play this year.

  • The Top Two Quarterbacks will play the first half. Neil Caudle and Barrett Trotter will duke it out (I think I'm being alliterative) during the second half for those coveted third-team offense duties.

I get worried when people sit out of practice. Don't they need to practice too?

I figure Mario would need to experience some live hitting before the season started. My guess is that Auburn will run a scrimmage "drill" at some point next week ...

Tristan? Foot? What's he done THIS time? Hopefully the great white hope from Prattville didn't step on him again.

I saw Tristan running on Thursday afternoon. He didn't look hobbled.

Oh, OK. Just the usual run of the mill stuff that lets us know that they just want to avoid another preseason disaster.
