Taylor is a go

1/5/08, AFTERNOON

Hey everyone. I just received 100% firm confirmation that Trooper Taylor has been added to the Auburn staff.

Morning reports indicated that Taylor had taken the job, though speculation grew during the afternoon when Auburn didn't confirm the hire. The delay wasn't really a delay -- Taylor was discussing his plans with OSU brass.

Taylor's primary function will be to coach receivers. He also is an assistant head coach.

Rivals.com assessed Taylor as one of the nation's top 10 recruiters in both 2005 and 2007. He was at University of Tennessee during those years.

``This is a great opportunity to join Coach Chizik at Auburn and be a part of a dynamic offensive staff that he has put together,” Taylor said. ``I’m excited to be coaching at a program like Auburn and return to the Southeastern Conference."

TROOPER TAYLOR CURRICULUM VITAE
Oklahoma State, 2008 (co-coordinator of offense, WRs)
Tennessee, 2004-07 (WRs, RBs, dir. of player development) -- in separate stints
Tulane, 1999-2003 (WRs)
New Mexico, 1998 (RBs)
Baylor, 1992-97 (WRs, DBs, grad. assistant) -- in separate stints

Playing career: Baylor '92 (defensive back)

ALSO: Jay Boulware, hired yesterday, has added TEs as part of his coaching responsibilities.

So you mean you can't just look at an athletic department's website and judge whether or not a coach has left by the presence/absence of his picture?

I guess I better stop refreshing the whitehouse.gov staff page to see who the next president is. I will try to figure it out by other means.

This is wonderful news. I don't expect a problem getting a decent offensive line coach. Now, as long as the defense doesn't go to pot, we should be much improved. I must remind myself of the Franklin Experience and not get too excited.

AUntheMob,

How did he spin it. Hopefully it was how Saban being the masterminded defensive coach that he is, couldn't figure out that uh I think they are going to throw it to #88 (Brown). Simply outcoached by a staff that combined does not make as much as he does alone.

Great news on Trooper! Cincy you weren't the only one sweating bullets over a WR coach that you had never heard of before yesterday.

I heard that Luper said when he arrived that we was going to get his 1st recruit for AU...that being Trooper. I like how he delivers. Now if he could get us about 3 WRs 6'2+ with great hands and 4.5+ speed I'd appreciate it.

The SEC West is going to be incredibly tough next season if Auburn turns out the way I think they might. We could be very good and still fight to be in the top half of the west. Ole Miss, Bama, and LSU will all be tough. I expect Arkansas to be much improved. MSU is a wildcard.

It is possible that Bama has a drop off or that LSU continues to slide, but my guess it both will be pretty solid, especially LSU now that they have a QB.

Yea OL is a concern. Although 2 of our OL commits have the size to play pretty quickly if they can develop fast enough.

Steve..we have a lot more potential problems at QB and WR than RB and OL.

Troop can teach WR fundamentals and that will help, but those guys still don't have even 4.5 speed and don't know how to seperate.

We have no proven QB. Our only chance is for someone to step up and improve greatly in the off season AND THEN improve further during the season.

The RBs are good SEC quality..not great. The OL can reload and have good starters with no depth. We will need an offense and WRs good enuogh to back up the defense and give the OL a chance to block. Outnumbered is outmanned

Chizik, to me, has been the best defensive coordinator that we have had since Wayne Hall and Brother Oliver. Muschamp and Rhoads were both good ones, but Chizik seemed to be more of a balance between Muschamp and Rhoads styles. Chizik's defense didn't tend to give up the big plays that Muschamp did, but it definitely was more attacking than what we saw from Rhoads.

Pee Wee Herman: There's things about me you don't know, Dottie. Things you wouldn't understand. Things you couldn't understand. Things you shouldn't understand.
Dottie: I don't understand.
Pee Wee Herman: You don't want to get mixed up with a guy like me. I'm a loner, Dottie. A rebel.

Monica: The only thing I like about THU ohio state university is their fight song because it was my high school fight song.

Greg: At least you had a fight song.

Monica: How can you not have a fight song?

Greg: We didn't have anything to fight about. (St. Joseph Catholic School)

OK...game prediction. Texas will score early without a lot of problems. If OSU can keep it close enough early, OSU will finally slow the UT offense and score some itself. If Boom makes good halftime adjustments, he can keep the freshman QB confused and limit OSU scoring. A lot has to happen for OSU to have a chance to win. UT 38...OSU 17

Old school Auburn folks hate Ohio State because of Woody Hayes in 1957. My dad carried the hate to the grave.

I hate Ohio State because they knocked us out of the NCAA Tournament in 1999.

I will be pulling for William Boomothy Muschamp. As if that were some kind of surprise.

I've read some comments today calling for hesitancy toward the new staff based on the CTF experience. HOGWASH!!!! I know understand The Chizzle's plan and have zero complaints so far. Assemble the most phenomenal staff possible and produce a phenomenal football team. The difference between these guys and Franklin is the same as the difference between 1,000,000 and 10; the same as the difference between the whole phreaking universe and Tuscaloosa; day and night. These guys didn't sell their offense out of the back of their SUV, they sold it out on the field in the big boy leagues. And the thing is ... I don't think we are done yet.

SheTiger,
Welcome. There are some things you need to know. First of all, you need an avatar. That is the picture that goes with your posting. It is VERY important rule on the HABOTN that the picture accurately represents what you look like.

What a drop....that looked like Swinton.

7:23 PM  
Blogger Monica said...

atlantatiger - I don't think that was Spirit. I asked last year and it was some Veterans group I think that was flying the eagle. Also, when the AU Raptor Center flys they wear AU gear. (more useless info I know)

Apparently Gus is looking at 3 QBs but will only take 1, unless one of them wants to change positions.

I can see why you're concerned about stalkers, Aubie.
