Thursday chatter

Hey everyone. I'm technically off this week, which means I'm trying to get a few holiday-related matters handled before more Auburn drama unfolds.

I know what you're thinking: More drama, Jay?

It's Auburn. You never know.

Here are a few items of interest:

AUBURN HOOPS SIGNINGS: We've discussed this before, but now it's official. Jeff Lebo signed four players today for the 2009-2010 season.
  • C Robert Chubb, 6-10, 220 (Peachtree City, Ga.)
  • SF Kenny Gabriel, 6-8, 200 (Charlotte, N.C.) ... from JUCO
  • SG Andre Malone, 6-5, 202 (Atlanta)
  • SG/SF Earnest Ross, 6-5, 215 (from Cary, N.C.)

FREEMAN ON BOARD? (UPDATED): Our friends at AuburnSports.com reported that junior-college linebacker Eltoro Freeman, an Alex City native, has chosen Auburn and will sign with the Tigers tomorrow. Freeman notified Gene Chizik of his intentions this afternoon. I'm 100% sure Chizik is satisfied.

As far as the banger JUCO goes and his talk. I prefer less talk and more stuff on the field.

I am certainly looking forward to hearing some of the football commitments/recommitments come rolling in. One question for those who know much more about this than I... if/when some of the more highly visible commitments make their decisions known, especially if they are staying with Chizik, how does that affect the other high profile commits/decommits?

I am going to adhere to what I call Rule #1 during the holidays: Do Nothing.

Rules 2-70 deal with avoiding family, but that is not the point of this post.

Thanks for all your hard work this football season.

Blogger coosa said...

Thanks for keep us informed on your off-time, Jay. After being forced to sit thru the AU-Tuskeege game, you deserve a full vacation.

That was an excellent column by Jason Whitlock that was posted in the last thread. I was on the Gill bandwagon, but maybe he is right that it might not have worked.

I'm gonna say now that I'm buying the official Auburn story, hook, line and sinker. There was no conspiracy; there was no Bobby Lowder directing the search and using JJ as a puppet; there was no Pat Dye who was secretly in charge. It went down just as they said.

Gogue told JJ to find a coach, but restricted him to a by-the-book search that no other BCS school has tried in years. Gogue probably thought the SACS situation required it. He probably also made it clear to JJ that he alone would be held responsible for the results. So JJ's job depends on Chizik's success.

If you were in JJ's shoes and this was the task he was given, what would you do? I'd try to hire the guy that I thought would win at Auburn and stay there for many years. I think that he decided Chizik is that guy.

I've had to hire a lot of people over the years, and there were many times that I didn't select the one that had the most outstanding resume. Sometimes the one with the best resume seemed to be a nutcase in an interview. When I was going to be held responsible for my hires, I hired people I thought would be successful in that particular job, not some other job. Charles Barkley doesn't understand that because, as he likes to say, he's never had a real job in his life.

Go Chizik!
Its us against the world!
Kick a bammer if you get the chance!
War Eagle!

Jason Whitlock is a tool! If Barkley is a conspiracy theorist (which he could very well be), Whitlock is a consummate apologist.

4:20 PM

I wish these people on Finebaum and the blog would stop being negative about hiring Chizik. Either get on the AU bandwagon or get off!!!!! He's our coach! Support him!!!!!!!!!!

I find it hilarious that people are still moaning over who the coach is. It is getting to be pretty hilarious.

I am terribly anxious to know who the OC will be. That will give us a big indication of what to expect next season.

4:44 PM

And as far as still talking about the coaching hire, what are people supposed to do? Talk about our bowl game? It's still a national story.

So Michael IF we had a bowl game who would you want to see us face? Mind you this is play-play so dont get complicated by asking who would coach the team on offense. lol

4:57 PM  
Blogger Al Gorgeous said...

Assistants..

I've seen three account now from AU pledges that they were told Chizik has 4 coaches lined up that he could not name yet. Two from a college, or colleges. And, two from the NFL.

I think we all expect Searles to come on. Garner? I still think that's not an easy one to decipher since he interviewed for the head coaching "position". That should always be surrounded by quotation marks. Always.

The NFL guys? Who could guess? Looks like the OC could very likely come from there, though.

5:01 PM  
Blogger Al Gorgeous said...

Also like to give a shout out to the Bull, Eltoro Freeman, for keeping it F'n real yesterday. Why couldn't that conversation have been recorded for all to enjoy?

From now on, if Eltoro's talking, please take a device that will record that audio. Jay...anybody...er'body. Record that young man.

'Bout time Auburn had a mouthpiece again on the D side. Groves was so so. But nobody has been that guy since Junior was around.

5:03 PM

Hello Jay,

With all of the buzz around Auburn's coaching debacle and Alabama's success, other regional sporting news seems to be silenced, or just lightly mentioned. I am really surprised that more attention to the sanctions issued to Alabama State University by our super powerful NCAA has not raised concern for the lack of disciplinary actions in the future. A new standard appears to have been set.

How is it that Alabama State University (ASU) is guilty of 17 staff related, in your face ridiculous, violations and receive similar penalties as other universities that were convicted of only 1 or 2 non-staff violations. Self imposed sanctions or not, this lack of respect for the NCAA Rules and Regulations should warrant the "Death Penalty."

Now that ASU has set the standard for what universities can get away with, the NCAA will not be able to enforce sanctions unless the violations exceed this example disrespect. The NCAA doesn't have the balls to penalize ASU, who, by the way, is a "Black College." The NCAA avoided the "political black eye" of racism by letting ASU of the hook. Where do we go from here? Be on the look out for unpunishable violations galore.

I don't have the time to really gain all of the in depth details, so if I have misinterpreted and/or misunderstood any or all of this situation I apologize for stirring the pot.

Love your show. Thank you for finding the truth and returning the message to the public.

Respectfully,

Armamentarium

Jet thoughts ...

1. BigCat, I appreciate your perspective. But I view Whitlock as a truth teller. He steps on all toes. He's made me think about a lot of notions, thoughts and ideas.

2. Eltoro may be the biggest bust in the history of college football, but for right now, he's my favorite player. We need some swagger.

3. If you love Jay G, don't wish the sports editor job on him. That would be the end of his life and our life with him on HABOTN.

4. Signing tall basketball players? What in the world is going on? Snow in New Orleans? The third sign of end of days is surely nigh.

5. We'll never see the death penalty again.

And a school would pretty much have to kill a person to get the "death penalty" nowadays. The NCAA doesn't want to complete destroy a football program again like they did to SMU.

Steve, Being surprised that folks are still complaining about the coach hire is about as naive as JJ not expecting xCTT to be gone. The press in Alabama is STILL pounding that issue every day.

Coosa, I've hired a lot of folks myself. The ease and quality of the hire was directly proportional to the salary budget and company reputation.

The story of how AU did nothing wrong is more complicated than the conspiracy theories.

Okay, I think I have an answer for this race stuff. From now on each season we should have an integration appreciation game. During this game the luxury skyboxes will be reserved for minority coaches and players. All coaches and players that aren't a minority will be responsible for playing the game. So, who wants to pick the game we do this for?

6:29 PM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

Scott, I lived in Scottsdale(Phoenix). I visited a couple of friends that lived in Tucson. Arizona conventional wisdom said that Tucson was 5 deg warmer in the winter and 5 deg cooler in the summer than Phoenix.

The coaches are probably busy visiting recruits prior to the "no contact" period that starts soon. If the pay services are correct, the coaches are telling recruits that the assts are selected.

In fact, some of my friends that don't know football real well wanted CTG just to make a PC statement. I wanted CTG for football reasons and anything else was just a bonus.

When a University can play more than one non student individuals on the field, change over 100 grades, give money, hire strippers, allow players to use university vehicles for personal use, and on and on and on, and not get the "Death Penalty" there is a problem. The list totalled over 1000 total violations and was narrowed down to 17 categories. Alabama State self imposed a close match to what the University of Alabama recieved for 1 recuiting violation. A good one I might add.

The NCAA will have to be consistent from now on. The next University caught in any violation can now produce case law to minimize infractions.
