More commentary from Tuesday

Hey everyone. As I noted in earlier comments, I will not be attending Gene Chizik's Clichéfest this afternoon.

In lieu of that, please read some interesting things said by players on Tuesday.

  • WR Quindarius Carr on the spotty depth at his position: "There’s not that many out there. It’s a fast-paced offense so we’re constantly going back and forth. We don’t have that much of a break. We’re just getting into conditioning. There’s only like three or four of us. It’s alright so far."

    **HABOTN NOTE**: Non-injured scholarship receivers is a group that currently includes Carr, Tim Hawthorne, Darvin Adams, Derek Winter and Philip Pierre-Louis.

  • QB Kodi Burns predicting his run responsibilities in Gus Malzahn's offense: "The quarterback definitely in this offense has to be able to run the ball. I will run some in this offense as well. I don't know if it will be as much as last year, but the quarterback in this offense definitely has to run the ball."

  • WR Tim Hawthorne on things that are different with this new group of coaches: "It’s too early right now, but, overall, there’s a lot more structure. The coaches know what they’re going to teach and they know what they want us to learn. They have a set plan. I guess it’s more comfortable that way."

  • LB Josh Bynes on defensive coordinator Ted Roof and his linebacking background: "Look at him. He looks like a linebacker. (Hearty guffaws all around) He's got the big legs, big upper body. From working with him, he's been a very very good coach and he's doing the things possible to get us better on defense as linebackers. He wants us more physical and get us instead of just being there and being a guy getting blocked. It's about us making an impression on the offense that 'Yeah, we're going to come at you hard and come at you fast and come at you physical on every play.'"

  • G Mike "Big Snacks" Berry on the Tigers' new offense: "Compared to the old offense, we're probably going to run the ball. Grimes, the first day we met him, he told us he wants us to be the toughest O-line in the nation. I'm glad we're getting back to running the ball."

Mr. Tate,

Can you do a little scouting on Justin Albert when you hit the next practice?

5:05 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I can do it right now.

He's a 5-foot-7 scatback with one-tick-above-SEC-average speed and quickness. He seems pretty refined with his hands.

He'll be behind Ben Tate, Mario Fannin, Onterio McCalebb, Dontae Aycock and possibly Brandon Jacobs.

Sponge....."Flattville" is full of Bammer Lemmings. Very hard to get to those kids.

At first it seemed that you had mindreading skills when you supposedly "knew" that Tubs was "tired" of AU. Then I realized that you just aren't concerned with accuracy when you claimed that the AU fans were tired of him. There was a vocal group..mostly on the net and callins and PTB that were "tired" of CTT. There was a large group that didn't want change. That fan group grew weary trying to hold off the "tired ones".

If you want to complain, then complain that according to Scout, we are only on the "interested" list of 1 of the top OL. I guess that's the old group's fault also. I mean there are only 30 OL on that Scout list ond there just hasn't been time for the new guys to contact them.

Personally, I don't that we should be complaining, but if you are going to complain, at least keep it contemporaneous.

Auburn’s got a front-runner in its kicking competition, and it’s probably someone you’ve never heard of.

Chandler Brooks, a walk-on redshirt freshman from Huntsville, Ala., is leading the place-kicking competition, according to special teams coach Jay Boulware, ahead of incumbent Wes Byrum and Morgan Hull, a pair of juniors.

“He’s consistent,” Boulware said of Brooks. “He nailed a 51-yarder today at the end of practice. He’s doing a phenomenal job for us right now.”

wtc. you are right, but the day of reckoning will come for UA over Gadsden. Consider this. The last time UA got a new coach, then every great player from every state all of a sudden wanted to play for the Tide, what happened. Dubose goes down. It's about to happen again. And for the same reasons. Patience

SPonge-I appreciate your zeal for everything bad happening to UAT. Deep inside I probably do, but will just wait to see what happens. I have heard that talk for a while. If it happens, I will give you props. Until then, I do not worry over it.
As I recall, when AU started getting a few players from Mobile Everybody in west AL said it was oly a matter of time before Joe Whitt or Chette Williams got AU in trouble. Still hasn't happened.

Again, Not raining on the parade. I will wait until the radio guys break in and announce it.

Hoop ...

A good reason why that only one of 30 -- allegedly -- is interested in us is because of the hole we're in -- primarily shoveled by the previous regime.

Kids -- generally -- don't give a rip about PTBs, or nets, or boards, or anything of a sort. They care about the effort of those recruiting them. They want to see the head coach. They want the love. The esteemed blogger, Mr. Tate, has said as much that Tubs' energy was gone.

We -- he -- surrendered the state, and let the energy slide away. If you're wanting me to bitch about recruiting today for a class won't sign for another 10 months, I'm not biting.

Hoop, what Jet said...LOL. Sorry to get your blood boiling, but way too much info out there indicated Tubby was "burned out a bit". Don't blame him really. AU boosters had as much to do with it as he did. From the fan perspective, I was referring to those fans, me included, that grew tired of his dalliance w/ other job offers after each successful year, leaving AU, and AU fans, hanging. Tubby and company did a great job recruiting early on, but again, in my opinion, they didn't have the stomach or will to compete w/ Sabear.

Regarding current recruiting, I think this staff will be great given time. I was really pointing out that Sabear and company was recruiting for next year while we were recruiting for this year, and that by doing that, they were way ahead and we have a lot of ground to make up... Which I think we will. Finally, Sabear and families methods will be exposed soon enough, which will allow AU to catch up quickly I hope.. S

So see, this is actually positive news...LOL

Quote to make Monica's knees weak:

"To be real honest, the talk that's happened before we came around, that's all B.T.T. I say that's before Troop time. I don't care anything about any of that, it's what we have now."

I want some good tacos and mexican queso dip. I don't think Taco bell has either, and that's probably my only bet this time of night. Off to bed, then.

Good morning, Hotties! We made it over the hump!

So far, I'm pretty impressed with this group of coaches. It seems, the players are as well. I see good things on the Auburn football horizon. War Eagle!

As for Big Snacks, I think King Dunlap or Marcus McNeill gave him that nickname.

All this time I thought it was you, Jay G, that made up the nickname.

I think I could go for a double knee replacement now.

Media outlets are reporting Jay G. Tate will sign with ESPN for $33 million over eight years, plus two automobiles, a country club membership, and other marketing opportunities.

It is expected he will be named "Kornheiser in Waiting" for ESPN's hit show "Pardon The Interruption," will be allowed to shoot Jay Mariotti on air during "Around the Horn" and clank Mike Lupica with a 2 x 4 on "The Sports Reporters."

A Good Morning to all!!

I think I'll hate Bama today. Yep, it's decided.

ehyou,

I made that decision a looonng time ago.

Truth is, you did, too.

Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Jet,

That's just a waste of a country club membership, since Jay apparently hates golf.

7:30 AM  
Blogger Jet said...

RK,

The sad truth is that the odds are once he hits the big time ... he'll probably "big dog" us ... start playing golf, listening to classical music, collecting art ... stuff like that.

It always happens.

7:32 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

That's true...plus there is the inevitible change from "Jay G. Tate" to either "J.G. Tate" or possibly something like "Jerome Gerald Tate Esquire".

It will be up to the hotties to keep the HABOTN running once he becomes the big shot.

I love Kornheiser on PTI. On MNF? Not so much.

Mike Lupica is a tool.
