(Belated) Monday chatter

Hey everyone. Sorry I'm late today. Been working on a project that will run in the paper either this weekend. The topic: Looking back on former winners of the Hitchcock Award.

It's given annually to the most outstanding Montgomery student-athlete and I think it'd be cool to see what some of these former winners have done with their lives. I like that kind of stuff.

If you Montgomery-tinged HOTTIES know of an interesting Hitchcock winner or anecdote, please share.

On to Auburn...

BASEBALL IN THE TANK: Auburn was swept at LSU this weekend. It wasn't the bludgeoning some expected -- LSU is an outstanding team this season -- but losing three in a row looks bad after a mid-week loss to Samford. The team has lost nine of its last 11 games.

FOOTBALL SHOWS UP IN THE NFL DRAFT: You all know by now that three Tigers were drafted last weekend. All three players are satisfied with their draft fates. Sen'Derrick Marks really liked the Titans before the draft. Now he's with them. Jerraud Powers has to be happy with being a third-round guy and Tyronne Green, who had a poor senior season, parlayed a great Senior Bowl performance into a fourth-round pick.

THREE WINS AND HE'S A GENIUS: I generally don't comment one way or the other when it comes to the work of fellow writers. Still, I'm wholly confused about why Kevin Scarbinsky wrote, either of his own volition or at the urging of his supervisors, this column: "Matthew Stafford went No. 1? Auburn's just glad he's gone"

This is a remarkably awkward premise for a Stafford column.

STAFFORD'S CAREER vs. ALABAMA: 43-77, 495 yards, 4 TDs (in two games)
STAFFORD'S CAREER vs. AUBURN: 40-63, 671 yards, 5 TDs (in three games)

Similar numbers. Granted, Georgia was 3-0 against Auburn and 1-1 against Alabama in games Stafford started. I still don't see much of a connection at all. I know Scarbinsky enough to know he's not agenda driven, but I totally can see why Auburn fans would read that story and think: WTF?

It's interesting Stafford had his worst game against AU's worst team in three years. It's also worth noting that Scarbo has been after Auburn lately, probably trying to convince the Bama fans he's partial, they all claim he's an Auburn homer.

The Scarbinsky column rambles and seems a bit random. I mean, by the end of it he might as well have inserted a review of the new Star Trek movie. But anyway, don't you think you are being a little harsh, Jay? I mean, as an Auburn fan, I didn't find it offensive or anything. The premise didn't make me angry. And I like a lot of other Scarbinsky stuff, so I will give him a free pass on this one.

Jay,
I know the PC thing is to say the Hitchcock award is given to the "most outstanding student athlete". But it is really given to the male and female athletes that best exemplify Christian leadership. With the witness of the individual and the ability to influence others playing a large part in the selection. It is more of a spiritual award than and athletic one. Grades and athletics are important, but character and leadership are the qualities that are really to be recognized. I hope as you report you will question the former recipients as to their spiritual influence on others.

4:07 PM  
Blogger Unknown said...

I'm in agreement Jay...I have no doubt that Scarbinsky is not agenda driven, but his superiors are probably another story.

It's funny, but the papers here in GA are more kind to AU than most of the papers in Auburn's home state.

The truth ...

Stafford fried our bacon as a freshman (when Brandon Cox wasn't playing horribly), and hit 2 bombs as a sophomore.

To take a gratuitous shot over that is ... well ... pretty weak. I'm surprised at Kevin. I judge him to be fair.

4:38 PM  
Blogger Unknown said...

Scarbinsky is on board with the program apparently. Talking about Auburn in a negative light is fine. Although the thing is that Bama doesn't play Georgia every year, Auburn does.

4:38 PM  
Blogger michael said...

I guess I still don't understand how it is gratuitous. Scarbinsky wrote all of 5 or 6 sentences talking about how Georgia owned Auburn while Stafford was there. This is true. Scarbinsky writes for an Alabama paper, so it makes sense that a story about the number 1 draft pick would be twisted into how it relates to Auburn and Alabama. After all, it worked. Would any of us read the article without the Auburn part? We are crazy for our Alabama and Auburn news.

What's weird to me is the seemingly random thoughts after that part. Yeah, Stafford did own Auburn, a guy wrote about it, it doesn't hurt my feelings.

Some interesting facts about Malzahn from an Auburn Undercover article. "When Chizik interviewed for Auburn’s head coaching job, one of his selling points was that he wanted to hire Malzahn to run his offense." This is interesting. Many initially criticized the hiring of Chizik, but Malzahn was a part of the plan Chizik presented. Maybe Jacobs isn't so much of an idiot.

Also, it mentions that Chizik chose the offensive staff, not Malzahn. This is interesting because Tuberville was criticized for not allowing Franklin to choose his staff.

4:52 PM  
Blogger michael said...

That is interesting that Chizik chose the offensive staff.

Ok St. is a pretty wide open offense, so those guys should fit in. I don't know anything about what the o-line coach ran. I think the chance of completely different philosophies between the position coaches and the coordinator won't be a problem, and that was the real problem last year, not the fact that Franklin didn't pick his guys.

Kind of like how my kids won't get mad at me for picking ice cream for dessert for them, but they would be mad if I picked peanut butter bread for them.

4:57 PM  
Blogger tigercowboy said...

I would think that CGM had to sign off on them in a sense. I believe Chizik went after people he thought were strong recruiters and felt could coach on the field. I would believe he had to make sure that they were going to mesh before he got them all on board.

Blogger Jet said...

Michael

I was in the stands for 2 of the 3 ... the one where he owned us as a freshman ... the one where he hit 2 long passes, but relied on Moreno and Brown for the heavy lifting, and watched the one last fall where he was the QB of the team that managed to win that game.

To say Auburn fans should be happy he's gone because he owned seems gratuitous to me. I think I'm pretty thick skinned when it comes to what the folks in the papers about Auburn.

Even the unbiased observer -- our fearless leader -- has now made consecutive mentions of Kevin's last two offerings. I think it's fair to say both left Jay G scratching his head a little.

I like the thought behind the limo. A lot of punches being thrown in the AL.com underworld by the bammers. I think I trust Luper's understanding of what a HS recruit would be impressed with more so than King of his Double widetrailer on AL.com. I want to take the MOB back.

I can answer your question, Jay. Kevin wrote the article because he works and lives in Birmingham and realizes (just like Finebaum) that bashing Auburn makes more money. However, Kevin fails to realize that the audience he caters to has an 87% illiteracy rate.

I got all kind of recruiting ideas. How about have the Auburn band show up at the recruits house just prior to Chizik and play the fight song as he exits the memo? Then when he leaves they could play Elvis' exit music. Yea, someone will be impressed, although the neighbors might call the cops.

Not taking anything away from Stafford, but the MVP QB for Georgia for two of the games was Brandon Cox. I think in the 2006 game Cox completed almost as many passes to Georgia as he did to our receivers.

personally, i thought they should have gone with the super stretch hummer limo. but i guess by the time they paid the gas to drive that thing all over the state, it would have been cheaper to use the AU jet.

Eddie, that 2006 Georgia game convinced me that Blake Field would never see the field again for Auburn. Cox was terrible and taking a beating on top of that. I really wondered if he would make it to the Bama game.

8:22 PM

There is one thing that you can never doubt about Brandon Cox and that is his toughness. The guy was as tough as any Auburn QB that I have seen. He took a beating and kept on playing.

8:28 PM  
Blogger chip chip said...

if stafford played AU three times his record would be 0-3. unfortunately for AU, the rest of the uga bulldogs showed up and helped out a little.

although, i'm not 100% sure if he could not have beaten AU by himself in 2006. it didn't seem like we could tackle him that day when he ran the QB draw 30 times.

hot ones, i need to consult the HABOTN technical support staff.

i have recently come across some old VHS recordings i made as a kid of the 87 & 88 iron bowls along with some other UGA and UT games AU won as well as the tie dye sugar bowl against syracuse. i watched some of the the 87 IB yesterday and it seems to be in good condition considering the tapes have been in my parents garage forever.

i tried dubbing them to DVD using my parents north korean made off-brand VHS/DVD player with little success. it kept randomly giving an error saying the program was copyright protected, however, i do not think the copyright protection signal was invented yet in 1987. it is more likely the equipment i am using is a piece of crap.

what is the easiest way to put these VHS tapes on DVD besides paying someone else to do it?

i am probably slightly above average when it comes to using computers and electronics so i think i can handle it. i have an imac with imovie and idvd if i can just get the original video onto the computer in a readable format. i always hate having to search around for solutions to problems like this that i am unfamiliar with and do better if someone experienced just tells me what to do or gets me headed in the right direction. i am determined to get better working with video and these games would be a good simple starter with the editing and dvd creation tools i have at my disposal. i hope to be able to reward any helpful solutions with a copy of one or some of the games without the express written consent of CBS etc.

my first intuition tells me to go buy a better VHS/DVD player/recorder and try again. then dump the DVD video onto the mac and edit away. i also have a 20 GB hard drive video camera that i may be able to hook up to a device and record to.

any and all suggestions and links to info will be appreciated.
i apologize in advance if i repost this tomorrow so more folks might see it and provide help.

the freakiest part of the whole thing is seeing all those old 80s commercials...yeesh

"Stafford fried our bacon as a freshman (when Brandon Cox wasn't playing horribly)"

Jet, I strenuously object.

Yes Stafford's QB draw killed us over and over in 2006, but Brandon throwing completing 4 passes to UGA and only 3 to his own team did far far more damage.

Stafford and UGA was having an awful year that year and they killed us.

The next year we had them in a shoot out in the middle of the 3rd quarter up 20-17 and all of the sudden Cox started throwing them the ball and our D quit.

I guess I didn't write clearly. I think we're on the same side of the argument ... I think Scarbo was over the top. Stafford did his share as a freshman (give him his due had a great game), and had the two big throws the next year, but to say we need to have a party because he's gone is too much.

I'm happy for him because he looks just like my nephew, so I'm hoping if I'm anywhere with my nephew, someone will buy us dinner.

The one player I can remember being glad he was gone was Matt Jones. Even when we beat him, he nearly beat us -- thanks for the holding calls, refs.

We reordered our 2009 season football tickets last week. We were up against the wall top row, opposite end of the new scoreboard. Wife and I moved due to some douches that thought they were extras in the movie old school. Wife and I couldnt watch the game due to vomiting over the railing, excessive gas, odor,minature bottles and double F bombs. I like to have a drink and get into the game but these guys were not good for the tigers. All people that bought tickets to sit in the area quickly moved. So this year we bit the bullett and upgraded and moved down a whole section. Dont ask me the color, but due to the economy we figured we would get some good seats someone gave up. So bye bye douche bags. Money well spent.

i guess luper read my comments yesterday saying the should be rollin' in the hummer. it's nice to know my comments on HABOTN are taken so seriously by the coaches...whateva...

my guess is they needed more leg room...

Puppet farts.

Harrison that brings to mind another confucious saying
Crowed elevators smell different to a midget.

If you don't believe it ask Dinky.

and don't forget the smell of strippers...no limo is complete without it. cheap perfume, stale cigarette smoke, vodka and sweat dreamy...

Well, I use to think that Greg Knox might have been the problem with our passing game the last 3 seasons. After reading a story on Auburn Undercover about some comments Knox made as MSU's runningback coach, I have changed my mind. They guy isn't quite fully backed. He stated that he has 3 runningbacks at MSU that are as good as he has been around. Well, it looks like he has three Ronnie Browns or three Cadillac Williams or three Rudy Johnsons. Ummm, forget the defibrillators, he is already brain dead.

W/ strippers, just make sure to keep the windows closed or you'll let all the stank out...giggity.

Sounds like normal "coach speak" to me

I guess Knox decided in favor of the frontal labotomy instead of the bottle in front of me.

Coach Nutt, is that what you're calling yourself now after that unpleasantness with the text messages?

Hope you don't get yourself into a "Quagmire" in Oxford like you did in Fayetteville.

i guess he had WRs as good as florida's and lsu's while he was at AU. maybe he did, but they didn't play like it because of poor coaching. i was just thinking the other day how i will be watching MSU RBs next season to see if they fall off a cliff in terms of production.

although, players have been known to succeed in spite of knox's coaching, but they didn't exactly set the world on fire either. see: obomanu, aromashoudu, taylor and mix

Give me three Ronnie Browns and I will see you in Atlanta. We shall see how wise Knox is very quickly.

Steve, Knox has to say something like that. Coach talk for, "We don't know who is worse so we are going to try to start all 3."

Monica,

That "mission accomplished" reminded me of when BWBush was on that aircraft carrier saying the same thing.

Tad premature unless the goal was to be swag-fabulous. Then, I suppose it is accomplished.

I just had a brilliant idea. The NCAA limits the number of coaches that can be recruiting this time of year, but they don't limit the number of white stretch limos with Auburn logos on them that can be on the road. They should hire about a half dozen of the limos and have them drive around the state.

Quick poll:

Who will make the most immediate impact on their new team?

Andre Smith - Bengals
Glen Coffee - 49ers
A. Caldwell - Texans
R. Johnson - Cardinals

S. Marks - Titans
J. Powers - Colts
Ty. Green - Chargers

11:41 AM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Andre because I bet he starts from day one.

JMO.

11:42 AM  
Blogger Eddie McCoy said...

Andre Smith should make the most difference, at least he better in the Bengals eyes.

11:44 AM  
Blogger FSJ said...

I do like Marks to the Titans and Johnson to the Cardinals.

11:46 AM  
Blogger Harrison said...

agreed. Smith is the only one of those likely to start from day 1

Not gonna prosecute the robot!?! I demand justice.

12:03 PM

The answer is John Parker Wilson, who will throw 3 TD's in his first start for the Birmingham Wildfire.

There are two NHL game 7's tonight. I hope THT's head doesn't explode from excitement.

The reason why the robot won't be prosecuted is because the victim is suffering with The Stockholm Syndrome.

and of course, I was lying. It could get a whole LOT better. An east coast game 7 and a west coast game 7 would be so much better because it would provide 6 consecutive hours of hockey. Maybe I'll get lucky and there will be a 5 OT game tonight.

12:11 PM

12:12 PM  
Blogger Miller said...

Andre will make the most immediate impact on his new team. They are planning to release (if they haven't already) one of their starting OT's... Andre will slide into that role and probably be forced to start day 1. By default, he will make the most immediate impact on his new team... Whether it is a positive impact is yet to be determined.


If you were to ask who would make the most positive impact on their new team, I would say either Marks or Rashad Johnson.
Marks fills a need and the Titans DL is very well coached. R Johnson will not have to play every down, but will be put into specific situations that will allow him to succeed with the Cards.
