Signing Day (early)

Hey everyone. I'm headed up to Auburn shortly and will get into the flow around 9 a.m.

I realize that some players (notably Dee Ford and Philip Lutzenkirchen) already have forwarded their paperwork to Auburn. Despite Fox News' reports to the contrary, the HABOTN is not in all places at all times.

See you in a bit.

It feels nice having Philip Lutzenkirchen all signed, sealed, delivered...he messed with my heart for awhile with facebook status like "Go Gators" this kid has stuck it at with Auburn through all the hard times.

Blogger AUMom said...

Does there seem like larger than usual number of committed recruits are changing their minds and going elsewhere this year?

8:12 AM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

This was written in response to Scarbinsky's article:

"The only times that Auburn has been able to compete with Alabama for in-state talent are those times when both the Bama coaching staff was in turmoil and Auburn was on a high. In 2005 and 2006, the Bama fans only wanted one thing.....Shula gone. That environment caused a downturn in Bama's attraction and Auburn was able to somewhat compete, but it was not the blowout that dominating Bama for years and going undefeated in 2004 should have brought.

The truth is, Auburn will never be able to compete with Bama for in-state recruits. For one thing, the Alabama media will not allow it. When it gets truly competetive, the Alabama media will bash Auburn and poison the well to what ever extent is required to ensure Bama brings home the stars.

I don't know if Chizik and his staff know how to win football games. Only time will tell. But they do know that their bread won't be buttered in the state of Alabama. Going after out of state talent is the smartest thing the could do. Bama's media machine and their money will never allow Auburn to compete here. No matter. There is more talent in Texas, Georgia, and Florida than the state of Alabama will ever see."

I can't tell who this person is a fan of, but this type of attitude just infuriates me. There is no reason that Auburn can't compete in Alabama - unless someone is cheating. Sorry this is so long.

And this article was not the epitome of Auburn bashing?

Best game-day atmosphere- LSU

Best chance to play as freshman- Arkansas

Best uniforms- Georgia

Best academics- Vanderbilt

Best campus life- Ole Miss

Most tradition- Alabama

Most likely to get players to NFL- Georgia

Most exposure- Florida

Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Unfortunately I think there is a lot of truth in Scarbinsky's writing.

Yes, we can compete with Alabama, but they generally have the advantage in the state being the state named school and a long tradition and pipelines in a lot of schools that stretch back to far before most of us were even born. It takes a lot to put a wedge in those ties that were established long ago.

What it takes is winning and not just the Iron Bowl.

I was hoping for better today, but it doesn't seem like it is going to be a great day, not that it was expected. Just hope to end up in the top 20, but that will be tough.

Blogger astatguy said...

Print edition of AJC referenced a study by a national news service about the accuracy of stars. Their conclusion - a little better than 50% accuracy.

As I've said before assigning a number of stars to a subjective evaluation doesn't make it objective or add any accuracy. It's still just an informed opinion.

I'd like to see a REAL study. A predictive model using speed, height, vertical jump, horizontal leap, and bench strength indicators indexed by position would be interesting. I'll bet it would be more accurate than stars.

I am looking at Jay's "recruiting opus" post, and Blake falls withing the "Issue 2" group, and Jay thinks a reasonable goal is to get 25% of those guys. Well, there are ten recruits listed there, so the question is who are the other 1.5 people we might get from that group? I am thinking maybe Dontae Aycock and David Oku's lower body to get to 25%.

OK, my head is spinning. Benton is quite a shocker. Randle to LSU then, but I am very happy to have Benton.

Blogger TarHeelTiger (JaySr) said...

Re: Benton - he left Bastrop almost 2 years ago. It worries me when someone takes 2 years at Hargrave to be able to get into college.

I love this from Woodberry:

"Reporters here at the Media Command Center didn't believe it at first. We had to actually view the National Letter of Intent with our own eyes. Why the shock? Well, he said as recently as a few hours ago that he was going to LSU."
