Welcome, Coach Jay Boulware.

Now, where's Trooper?

Jet, what are the most recent DC rumors? Ellis? Herring? Others? I have been following the Troop story and have to believe that he will be on board very soon.

The name I've seen flying around lately is Ted Roof ... former Duke HC prior to Cutcliffe, ex-DC at Ga. Tech prior to Tenuta, and current DC at Minne-ha-ha.

I'm beginning to believe that Chiz and the boys would rather spend 700k on something other than a buyout.

But I don't know ... just guessing.

Jay Oklahoma States Rivals page is saying that Trooper Taylor is going to join the Auburn coaching staff of Gene Chizik. Is it true?

4:34 PM

I hope they're right on Super Trooper. Not real sure what "virtually confirms" means?!

"Virtually confirms" is a weird way to put it.

"Where's the D?"

4:36 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Their thought is ... he's interviewing on site, must be gone.

4:36 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

If he's in a staff meeting that's probably discussing recruiting, they think he's probably on board. No one has actually stated he is though, hence the "virtually".

We have candidates in our weekly meetings all the time so they can see how we work. I have no idea how it works in sports though.

4:40 PM  
Blogger ron mexico said...

it's a pretty good thought, if chizik wants him there is no reason not get him with him coming there in person with his friend luper. If taylor and garner end up at tennessee and we missed out on searles things won't be looking as good for coach chizik. Hopefully he knows that.

I would assume Coach Luper had a big suitcase on the plane. I hope CTT brought one too.

Did anyone notice that Ok St has a commit from Deron Furr, younger brother of infamous ex-player Deron Furr? One theory for part of Deron's meltdown was that AU would not offer his little brother. Just an interesting side note.

I vote for Tyler; that way we'd be the same distance from Atlanta, though it would be Atlanta , TX.

5:05 PM  
Blogger ZteveFC (Live to Punt) said...

I do find it interesting that we will have a coach dedicated to special teams. I consider this a good thing. Coaches blab about how important special teams are to the game, but then they are left as a part time job for some schmuck.

5:05 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenzchmidt (50%) said...

well, I don't know what you're talking about (and did a quick search to figure it out), but the song "Hallelujah" was written by Leonard Cohen.

moving TX to JH is a pretty good idea, but if you go to google maps and search Auburn, TX and look at street view, you'll see there's PLENTY of room for expansion there.

I would really like Auburn to get some coaches from the SEC, particularly with Auburn ties. How much can the Big 12 Barbeque Boys help us with recruiting this season?

I bet we get a few of those grain fed plains boys this season.

We've still got the whole defensive side and Willis to cover the south.

I would love to see this staff pull in a couple of new recruits from out west, but we will have to see. It is late in the recruiting game.

Leonard Cohen.

His is good but Jeff Buckley's brought me to tears during the Katrina coverage.

As soon as Trooper shakes the hand to make the deal he needs to pick up the phone, call Rueben Randle and tell him to change the 1/9 visit he was going to make to OSU to the Plains!

Jeff Buckley tried to swim the Mississpii River and lost back in the day. Pretty fitting they used his version of Hallelujah during the Katrina coverage.

Also, I am sure Boulware is a wonderful coach, but I was a bit of a let down after seeing the "Another football coach hired" title to the post. Jay, if this whole journalism thing crashed and burns, you could get a job doing the teasers going into commercial for E News Daily or sportscenter (perhaps this is the ESPN job Jay might take?) or something like that. You know, build it up big going into commercial to keep the viewers, but then when the tease is fulfilled you are all like, "Oh, is that it?"

Hummm that Flight is headed to Brookly Field Airport Downtown...Damn that's a little farther as i live in west mobile!

5:55 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

I just know the Auburn plane flew from Mobile at 11:00 last night and flew back this afternoon. We flew in 1 new offensive coach today and another potential coach. I woudn't be surprised if Gus did sneak in for the interview. Wouldn't you think he would like to meet the coaches before they head out recruiting? Or it could just be a coincidence!

5:56 PM  
Blogger AUnMobilz (Big Ball of Hate) said...

Kathy,
I think you are on to something....
A little recruiting meeting with HC, OC, RBC and hopefully WRC and then back to Mobile in time for team meeting tonight....

Oh yes CGM was in that meeting today... i bet a $100 he was!

6:04 PM  
Blogger Monica said...

Mrs. Malzahn posted on my Facebook at about 5:00 asking me if Trooper was on board. So, I guess that could mean all sorts of things. I'm taking it to mean Gus wasn't there.

6:08 PM

Maybe it just means that Gus has been in a meeting and was unable to call her?

I would assume that the Mrs. is in Mobile with her husband, so the plane thing is probably just a coincidence. I wouldn't think she would be able to tell anyone the news about the hire until it's official.

I think Transy is a really cool school and one from which I wished I had graduated. Let's see, I think you are the best sports writer in Alabama. I would say in the business, but Eric Crawford is pretty darn good too. The HABOTN rocks and is the best Auburn blog bar none. You have one of the nicest wives going, she may not remember it, but she helped me out with some emergency day care issues about 6 or 7 years ago and I have never forgotten it. However, even though you have all those sterling qualities and associations, it will still be 74-71 when the sun rises tomorrow.

the night before recruiting opens back up? i would think he would stay in auburn if he's accepted the job.

Ron ...

It all adds up to 7 ... let's find the best 7 and get them on the field and find 7 more to back 'em up. Everybody's multiple these days anyway.

I get the feeling that Chiz will be heavily involved in the defensive planning, particularly if it's someone like a Steele.

That doesn't bother me.

He probably wants to tell his players that he is leaving. Gus won't be there until Wednesday for recruiting. I'm going to remain positive......for now!

Chizik never showed multiple fronts at Auburn or Texas. The defense Alabama has run the past two seasons couldn't be farther away from what chizik runs. Steele runs a 3-4 with bigger athletes and plays alot of man on the outside. Chizik runs 4-3 with smaller quicker athletes and runs cover 2 most of the of the time. It doesn't add up to me.

I am really pumped at how things are shaping up. The days coming up to signing day are going to be interesting.

So, I hear Trooper met with Gus in Mobile tonight.

8:16 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

I read where Trooper met with Malzahn tonight, so I guess he was the one who flew to Mobile. He will return to Stillwater tonight. Guess Luper will be with him.

Ron,
Quit letting facts get in the way of a good rumor!

8:17 PM  
Blogger TB said...

So why meet in Mobile?

8:18 PM  
Blogger Aubie said...

Monie,
Did you "hear" that from your new BFF?

8:18 PM  
Blogger Monica said...

Gus is in Mobile with Tulsa for the GMAC bowl.

8:18 PM  
Blogger Aubie said...

TB,
That's where Malzahn is... GMAC Bowl

Dugh,, sorry.. Brain Drain from traveling. Thanks

Monica, you and I must be reading the same sites!

TB,
I mean why not meet in Mobilz?

Hell I'm here enuff said!!!!

Do we really know what kind of defense Steele runs since Saban is the de facto defensive coordinator?

8:24 PM  
Blogger TB said...

I'm sure AU,,, just thinking there was some kind of conspiracy going on. I was reading on another site that a kid at the All-Star game in Orlando reopened his visitations after hearing CTT speak. Supposed to be a hot shot DB out of Valdosta.

Look at Mon on a first name basis with Gus!! I'm not worthy, I'm not worthy!!

8:26 PM

I'm glad to have Mon on board as a HABOTN associate.

Is Boulware going to coach TEs as well? I haven't seen a college coach who is just a special teams coordinator though I haven't researched this extensively.

Is that something that happens often?

8:32 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

It's unusual, yes.

8:33 PM  
Blogger Monica said...

It's just easier to type Gus.

Hello to all the Hotties! Sorry I haven't posted anything lately, but I've been entertaining family for the past 2 weeks. I found that I could talk to them, watch football, and read the HABOTN all at the same time, but I couldn't do all of that and post too. Everybody is gone now and its back to just me and Ma and the dogs.

Look like Chiz is making some good hires. Also, I think Jay should make Monica paid staff now, considering all the insider info that she has.

I sure did hate to see an SEC team lose to Utah. Well, maybe I can live with it. ;)

8:34 PM  
Blogger Aubie said...

Jay G,
Where were your "hack" brethren after the staff meeting? Shouldn't they have been hanging around outside nonchalantly reading the newspaper?

8:36 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I don't have an answer for that.

I will say: Going after position coaches paparazzi-style is a bit much. You know what I mean?

Hanging at the airport is one thing. Hot-boxing people at a meeting is a whole different level.

8:42 PM  
Blogger AUnMobilz (Big Ball of Hate) said...

TB, That would be No. 24 in Black CB Greg Reid.... AU is going to be on his visit list!

8:43 PM  
Blogger Aubie said...

So the AU plane is scheduled to depart Mobile in 2 minutes, headed to Auburn.
Shortly after arriving in Auburn, it is scheduled to go back to Stillwater.
So I'm thinking Chiz made the trip down to Mobile with Trooper to meet with Guz. Headed back to AU to drop off Chiz before taking Trooper home.

8:43 PM  
Blogger TB said...

AU he seems to be impressive player. Hopefully we can sell him on our program.

8:46 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

That's the way it looks Aubie. I would imagine Luper went too. He said he had never met him, just talked to him on the phone.

8:46 PM  
Blogger Phormerly Phred said...

Geezy, I'm not sure I can go to bed without some confirmation on the Trooper Taylor stuff. Help us ute ... oops ... typo ... help us out.

8:46 PM  
Blogger Monica said...

I have not offered insider information. I have offered a very tiny giblet that is the product of sad, obsessive, stalkertastic behavior. I am not to be paid or praised. You should be plaining an intervention on me.

8:47 PM  
Blogger AUBigCat said...

I tell you what...if Homeland security needs to find anyone or sniff out any plot, they need to contact some of our Hotties! You guys are ferocious with info!

Mon - Don't worry we are already doing that. That is what the plane is doing. Picking us all up and then heading to WV.

Hey lookie there. More Ravens highlights!! WOO HOO!! God I hope we beat Nashville.

Are the AU pilots on salary or do they get paid by the trip/mile/hour/some other system? They've been working overtime lately!

8:50 PM  
Blogger Jet Never GiveZ Up said...

Monica ...

Dustin Hoffman and Robert Redford saved our nation with similar determination.

You are their modern day equivalent. Defend the constitution, Monica. You are the last line of defense between the tyranny of the Infidels knocking at our door.

Keep the faith.

Blogger Phormerly Phred said...

Man I wonder how you get that gig? AU pilot. Yeah, makes me want to get a pilot's license.

8:52 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

No! We can't intervene with Monica until after signing day. We need her to continue her superstalking behavior so we can get our info fix.

Greg is humming the mission impossible music to me.

I like it when you talk about using and abusing me, NoVa.
