Sunday of Iron Bowl week
Roll call: Monica, Bear82, FSJ, DnATL, SteveFC, Zimas4Ziemba, DennyCrum, Peter Frakenschmidt, Eddie4AU, Michael, Mr Sensible.
Thanks for helping me make it to 9 p.m.
I saw this sign (at left) while walking into the Athletic Complex today. Just thought you might like to see what the players see when they're coming to work. Someone from the alumni association was thinking ahead. I wouldn't mind seeing a sign that said "Work Hard: Good leads and transitions today!" but I'm just a lowly hack.
SCHEDULE UPDATE: Auburn began practice at 3 p.m. CST in Jordan-Hare Stadium. The lights are on. I'm told practice will go at least 16 periods, which means we'll be talking to Tuberville around 6 p.m. CST.
Today's designated interviewees are:
LB Josh Bynes
DE Antonio Coleman
LB Chris Evans
DE Michael Goggans
DB Walt McFadden
WR Rod Smith
I'll provide a Tuberville summary immediately after his commentary ends. I'll be doing a video tonight, which I expect to hit the HABOTN around 8:30 p.m. I'll also have player reaction at some point.
No. 20 AUBURN 87, No. 18 OHIO STATE 80: Whitney Boddie (right) gets the official HABOTN Baller of the Game for contributing 14 points and 11 assists in 41 minutes of work. Alli Smalley, who was a terrible shooter last year, apparently has turned the corner. She dropped 23 points Sunday on 9-of-17 shooting. The Tigers now are 4-0.
