As for Leon Hart, if he wasn't good, Elton John would have never written that song about him. You know Leon was a good man. We just didn't utilize him.

Jay, what was the official reason Chris Slaughter didn't play in the Iron Bowl?

11:46 AM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

The official reason is that he had a family medical emergency.

Good video! Chiz seems very "motivated" right now. It's exciting!

Is the audio choppy...or stuttering for everyone or just me?

Big MikeZ16, the video stuttered for me a bit at the beginning. I assumed it was due to numerous simultaneous accesses. It cleared up pretty quickly.

Jay how tall is Chiz? Where do you typically do this interviews, the coach's office or a lobby?

MAN I like Gene Chizik's attitude!!!! I do hope it translates to success on the field. But boy I like the way he's setting the bar.

Mon--Which ones? I think the "Don't make me go all Crazy White Girl on You" has Omnica written all over it.

I'd send Jay some flair, but he won't add me as his friend. I think he's waiting for the ESPN job when he can just have "fans".

Sniff....

So RR rescheduled his visit? Hopefully that means he really wants to visit, but couldn't get it scheduled this weekend.

I think having more time to get to know him and recruit him to AU, before he visits, and having last shot at him would be a good thing.

I am on Jay's friends list. I suck up to anyone who is going to make it big time at ESPN.

As for Chizik's hieght, it shouldn't matter. What really matter is the size of his head, and I think he has most SEC coaches beat.

Is it just me or does CGC sometimes get a look in his eye that makes you think he shot a man in Tucson just to watch him die? I swear I think he should have a few teardrops tattooed under his eyes.

While Obama is fixing college football, he should ban place kickers (not punters). You should either go for 1 from the 3 or go for 2 from the 10. Kickoffs are punts by the punter from the 40.

I do like a lot of what Chizik says, but I don't get my hopes up too much. I could talk the talk, but my idea of improving the team would be to pump music into practices, primarily CCR and possibly some Sammy Hagar.

For "Flair", see the greatest movie of all time, "Office Space". Flair is cute little decorations/buttons you wear on a uniform to express your personality.

Blogger ZteveFC (Live to Punt) said...

So, should we schedule a blanket party for Wes Byrum?

We had a kicker back in the 80s that missed a field goal that would have won the Iron Bowl. He was suppose to get a scholarship but didn't because of that kick. He transferred to Florida and beat our buts with a 90 yard field goal. Okay, well, maybe it was more like 50 yards, but it was long.

The lesson is, don't give up on your kicker.

Zteve... Good idea, but not violent enough. We need Rage Against the Machine, Public Enemey, and maybe a little NWA thrown in to mellow everybody out.

I'd like our team to be mean enough to re-enact the opening scene in The Last Boy Scout.

I bet it was. I got the non-HD pre-stretched version from WCOV in Montgomery on Knology here. It was fine though because I don't think HD would have improved that terrible broadcast. I've seen better on TrojanVision from Troy University.

1:15 PM  
Blogger ZteveFC (Live to Punt) said...

The Bills 5 straight losses in the super bowl were incredible. They came so dang close so many times that it was terribly sad.

I am pleased to see Chiz listing offensive linemen as a priority. I would prefer to just list linemen, because many good offensive linemen come from the defensive side of the ball.

Receivers and a QB make sense as a priority.

Some interesting football notes:

K. Steele bama's DC is officially a Clemson Tiger now.

Ruben Randle reschedules his visit to AU. He was suppose to be here this weekend and is now scheduled for Feb 4th. FYI that is National signing day. Dont know what that means but I take it he doesnt plan on picking a school by that day. Terrell Pryor, last years #1 player, waited until well after before he decided. Petey Smith also rescheduled.

1:33 PM  
Blogger ZteveFC (Live to Punt) said...

What is the story with Steele? Why is he leaving the crapstone? Is it Saban's winning personality?

1:35 PM  
Blogger ZteveFC (Live to Punt) said...

I just read where signing day is Feb. 6th.

1:38 PM  
Blogger AUBigCat said...

I think it was Feb 6th last year. It's usually the first Wednesday in Feb. Everything I have seen has said Feb 4th.

Maybe one of our resident Bama fans can tell us the deal with Steele going to Clemson.

In the second part of the video when Chzik mentioned the commits that we have had in place for a long time, did it seem like he was wishing he could get away with pulling those offers? Like maybe the Tyler Knight kid from GA?

Blogger Roman said...

In the coming months I think it will be more and more apparent to people that under Tuberville, AU really was a program in decline heading down the back side of the bell curve. We are not near so talented as some seem to think (recruiting rankings or no recruiting rankings) and we have (BIG) holes to fill along with shallow (as in if this were a pond, it wouldn't come up to your ankles) depth in a lot of spots.

I am glad Chizik is here. I dunno if he is the next great coach at AU or not, but the Tuberville error wasn't going to get any better. That's why Tubs took the money and got out.** He knew it was going to get worse before it gets better.

**JGT says Tuberville wasn't fired and could have returned. I believe that is correct.

I agree wholeheartedly with Roman and not just because Monica told me to. Tuberville was on cruise control ever since 2004. He did a lot of great things while at AU that benefitted the school and the program, but he simply lost the fire and wasn't willing to try and rekindle it. Plus, he would not have endorsed Kicker on a Stick.

I would imagine that "What I learned today on the HABOTN" would be entertaining.

Strange, I thought the Franklin Experience was all about re-kindling the fire. We started out averaging 8 wins a season under Tuberville and gradually got to 10 wins. That is progress to me.
