Stuff I missed on Thursday

Hey everyone. So in my efforts to gain clarity on the Chaz Ramsey situation, I failed to discuss a few lighter (but still notable) Auburn developments.

Things like that happen sometimes.
  • Auburn has scheduled its Fan Day extravaganza for Aug. 16. It will not be in Beard-Eaves as usual. It's going to be in Jordan-Hare this time and will run from 2-4 p.m. I didn't see much in terms of program changes, though allegedly there will be "game worn" jerseys for sale.

  • California DE Joel Bonomolo committed to Les Tigres late Wednesday night, our friends at the various Auburn-themed websites report. He attends a suburban Los Angeles junior college right now, but expects to be enrolled at Auburn in January. Bonomolo stands 6-foot-3 and weighs 245 pounds. He chose Les Tigres over a bunch of West Coast schools like Arizona and Arizona State.

  • Auburn is about to begin what is expected to be a significant recruiting weekend. This will be the last significant recruiting weekend until at least September. Among the most high-profile visitors will be Arkansas TB Michael Dyer, Arkansas TE Dakota Mosley, Georgia DT Jeffrey Whitaker and Greenville HS DT Kenneth Carter.

Talk about mixed feelings on Chaz... I really hate it for him and feel he is justified in everything he is doing... just hate the bad press and that it could occur at AU....

We're making a lot of noise in recruiting, but so far it's just been a bunch of noise.

Hopefully we'll get some results out of all this effort. I'd hate to think Tub was right in that we just need to settle for our 3 stars and try to coach them up.

jhag, you're killing me. On the bright side, I would love to see Whitaker commit to Auburn. Top D-Lineman are a must-have. On the other hand, so are O-Lineman, and I don't see much action on that front. Are the coaches going to hit the JUCO's even harder to find some O-Linemen?

Hopefully, the Saban Worshippers will buy all of the copies before I have to see one at the store. What happened to the old days when SI sent out one issue to the whole country?

Scottie- Let's be sure to say hi as you snap my photo. I'll be needing a customized jersey and a customized T-Shirt for the Rolling with Rollison Express.

As for game jersey's for sale, Frank Cox, the old equipment manager, used to sale them for $45, I wonder what the price will be for these.

11:07 AM

RK, I can understand their thinking, but it doesn't carry as much prestige as it once did to make the SI cover. I can remember when that was something to brag about.

11:07 AM  
Blogger BinOBA said...

Yeah, they are pumping it up like saban is the only coach on the cover of SI this month over on AL.anygoonthatcanaffordacomputerwillbedrawnherelikeabugtoaflame. Has saban started to breathe through his mouth? Looks like he is on the cover. Houston Nutts cover has to be the best one i have seen, though.

11:10 AM  
Blogger depressedAUfan said...

Eddie, who actually owns the jerseys after the season is over? Does the Athletic Department keep them, or do players have an opportunity to keep one for themselves?

11:11 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Depressed- It depends. If Auburn goes to a bowl game, every player gets to keep their Jersey as part of the "Bowl Gifts" they receive. As for the jersey's worn in the season, usually family members or the players will buy them at the old stated price of $45. And for those that don't buy them all, it is usually sold to those within the program and some select few outsiders. They have more than just a home and away jersey per player, so there is usually plenty of extras. I have a Willie Gosha & Jeno James Jersey and I bought my brother a Pat Nix Jersey while I was there.

11:16 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

One other thing Depressed, SR's usually get to keep their jersey's along with their helmets.

I forgot to sneak me a helmet out while I was there, but I had an inside source get me one which is currently in my office.

So, I sold exactly diddley at the ATL AU Club shindig last night. It was still fun to be there, though. The highlight was Tracy Rocker stopping by my booth and chatting for five minutes or so. When he spoke to the group, something I found interesting was that when he was on the Arky sidelines last year, he said he thought to himself, "That ain't Auburn. That's not how Auburn plays."

RK, that's AUsome. i fell asleep in the 7th last nite and missed the end of the game. glad the braves pulled it out.

cool u got to chat with The Rock last nite S-Choc. what exactly did he mean by "that's not how AU plays"? i'm assuming the offense?

12:35 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Yeah, mostly the offense. He couldn't believe they were trying the finesse approach, and he definitely insinuated that they weren't playing tough, hard-nosed football.

Besides Rocker, probably the most well-known former player there was Ken Rice, although there were 7 or 8 others.

When I graduated I thought I wanted to go to a small private school so I chose between Rhodes, Sewanee, Emory and Oglethorpe (where I went up going).

2:59 PM  
Blogger scottie b in tennessee said...

i'm a big autograph collector so i think that kind of stuff is cool (if it's AU). the funny part was the Martin's Family Clothing.

good one tht

I'm a little autograph collector. If they write like John Hancock, I don't want it.

It would be great to hand him a Quentin Groves picture for him to sign.

3:12 PM  
Blogger scottie b in tennessee said...

oh, ehyou, that's right. i have a signed pic by Quentin drilling him from the '06 game. having both sigs together would make my heart smile.

THT, what autographs r u into?

HAHAHAH ehyou - now that's rich

I love the HABOTN remote pics. I have one of The Daughter on the Santa Monica Pier in her HABOTN shirt.

Monnie, i facebook'd a buddy of mine who lives in Gadsden and he and his little boy are at the store waiting to meet JPW. no lie.

3:21 PM  
Blogger Monica said...

wow - it's true...

JPW at Martin's and Wayne Newton in Charleston, WV. It's true what they say. The sun don't shine on the same dawg's ass forever.

ScottieB - I was just being a 'tard. I don't collect autographs any more. I have most of the 1966 Green Bay Packers that I got one weekend in Baltimore. Even got to visit with my bammer hero, Bart Starr. We sold him some extra tickets we had.

3:26 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Monica -that was great! I hadn't heard that b4

3:29 PM  
Blogger scottie b in tennessee said...

that's cool you got to meet him & sell him your tickets THT. a lot different now, eh?

i was a pretty shy kid and didn't do the autograph thing as a youngster. however, i've spent the past 5 years or so making up for that.

Monica,
You so make me laugh!

3:52 PM

Sports talk radio is getting more and more bizarre. This morning I listened to Opening Drive discuss whether or not Tim Tebow is gay - for about an hour. Then I listened to Roundtable discuss Captain Morgan rum with two guests for about 30 minutes. I know rum is important to many sports fans, but a 30 minute commercial when they are supposed to be talkin' sports? C'mon! Let's talk football.

4:02 PM

cincy - why wasn't your ipod on?

4:26 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

My new car will have an mp3 outlet and it will be on!

4:30 PM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

Tim Tebow's gay?......careful or Hugh Nall might challenge his manhood.

Momma said: If you talk long enuff...you'll eventually say sumthin' stoopid. Sports talk radio talks too long.

4:32 PM  
Blogger Monica said...

what do you mean it will have? you car doesn't already have it? or are you saying you don't have your new car?

4:43 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Mon - cincy is still waiting for them to locate the car she is going to purchase.

Anyone interested in going to the UT game?

I reserved a 3 BDR timeshare condo (very nice, sleeps 10) in Sevierville for that weekend. This is way too much space for 1 person. I'd love to share it with some Hotties. Drop me a line if interested.

5:05 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

Yes, Monica, I am still waiting. But, they have found me one - coming straight from the factory the end of the month.

5:10 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

I think they thought they could out wait me and I would settle for my second choice color - but I can be very stubborn!

5:11 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

NoVa - sure wish I could take you up on that, but I have the distinct displeasure of working that weekend :-(

Cincy - way to go!

5:17 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

Are you saying you're going to let a little thing like work get in the way of football? ;-)

5:19 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

don't worry, I'll be careful not to be at work during the game. Although last time that happened I think was the 2003 game vs UF. hmmm

5:30 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

scallops & shrimp pasta plus homemade crabcakes for dinner. Yummy!

5:31 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

THT,
What time is dinner? We are going to Outback, which is great because that means I'm not cooking!

5:48 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Just finished a delicious New York Strip......

Dessert.....chocolate cheesecake.

I'm not a bad cook if I do say so myself.

In a recent interview, Michael Dyer was asked if he was a silent commit to Auburn. His response was laughter followed by "yea, that might be true."

6:56 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

1292 - now that's some positive posting! THanks for sharing :=)

cincy - dinner is over, including my large bowl of ice cream mixed with Biscoff cookies

7:37 PM

Perhaps FSJ should cater the HABOTN tailgate!

Walter Cronkite passed away.

With the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11, I've been remembering his broadcasts of that event. I don't know if it was naiveté or if he really earned it, but I haven't really trusted a newsman since he retired.

And that's the way it is.

Dyer video from today's 7-on7:
Dyer has AU #1

The more I hear from this kid the more I really like him. He and Seastrunk seem like two very intelligent young men.

8:41 PM  
Blogger AUBigCat said...

Just to clarify that 7-on-7 was in Arkansas not here.

8:42 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

BigCat,
I just watched this video and I really like Dyer. I'd love to have a team made up of quality guys like he seems to be.

8:48 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

what a great young man. Thanks for sharing that, BigCat.

8:49 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

If I were Petrino, I'd make time to talk to him.

Let's hope Chiz is keeping in close touch.

Cincy I couldnt agree more!! I have been just as impressed with the personalities of many of these recruits as I have been with their athletic ability. Another gold star for this coaching staff in my book.
