Auburn adds another commitment

Hey everyone Our friends at, and ITAT are reporting that DE Justin Delanie has committed to Auburn.

He is the 15th player to announce plans to sign with Auburn in 2010.

He apparently played at Sumter County High last season, but will be at Linden High this fall. He's tall (6-foot-5) and apparently is an excellent sprinter. Yes, sprinter.

He's not listed on Rivals, so any info would be helpful.

that is all pure speculation, though and i don't wanna "report" anything really so it's kinda like substance , unsubtantiated substance?

I'm just excited we are about to get to see some football. Gonna be great to watch an OC that "schemes" and looks for mismatches and disadvantages in space in relation to personell instead of just puttin er out there and seein what happens.

Good morning HOTTIES!!! Rise and Shine!!!


T-minus 18 days til kickoff!!!

Clifford Leroy Hare was a member of Auburn’s first football team in 1892, president of the old Southern Conference, longtime chairman of Auburn’s Faculty Athletic Committee, dean of the school of chemistry, and state chemist from 1930-48. He taught physical and organic chemistry at Auburn for 50 years. He also was an Auburn city councilman. Auburn Stadium was renamed Cliff Hare Stadium in 1949.

Each year, the highest honor an Auburn student-athlete can receive is the Cliff Hare Award (male) or the Leah Rawls Atkins Award (female). The Cliff Hare Award is presented to the senior male student-athlete "who, in addition to athletic and scholarship achievement, exhibits in great degree the qualities of leadership, integrity and courage."

Alexander Wright was a sooooper fast WR 1986-89, playing a vital role in the 1989 Iron Bowl win in Jordan-Hare Stadium. His career 23.6 yards per reception is still an Auburn record.

"Ace" Wright played a total of 7 NFL seasons with the Cowboys, Raiders, and Rams. This Auburn graduate was twice named the NFL's fastest man and once ran a 4.09 forty. Yes, that's faster than Bo. Wright set a Dallas Cowboys record with a 102 yard KO return in 1991.

I'm very proud of this great Auburn man. I encourage you to read why here. After retiring from the NFL, Wright resumed his education, earning the M.A. in Sports Management. He is currently Athletic Director at San Jacinto Christian Academy which, of course, is not in San Jacinto, TX, but in Amarillo on the high plains of the Texas panhandle.

Honorable Mentions:
Randy Walls, QB who led The Amazin's to a 9-1 regular season record.

Foster Christy, started and lettered at FB all 4 years he was at Auburn. He was inducted into the Huntsville-Madison County Athletic Hall of Fame. This Auburn grad has a Master of Divinity, teaches a weekly men's Bible study (in SFC's neighborhood), and is involved in leadership at his home church in Columbia, SC. Foster is part of the Kingdom Building Ministries speaking team. [source:]

Haygood Paterson, Jr. - Tackle on Auburn's 1932 Southern Conference Champions. (His father lettered in 1903-05).


p.s. How did Cliff Hare end up at #18? After all, they didn't have jersey numbers in 1892.
Answer: There is an 1892 team photo in the AU Archives on which the players have been identified by a number key. Number 18? The great Cliff Hare, who may have been Auburn's first keeper of the clipboard (Dean Hare was not a starter on that team, but certainly was one of its intellectual leaders).

Alexander Wright could fly... he didn't really understand how to run routes which hurt him in the NFL, but for a period of a few years he was the NFL's fastest player.

Good morning Hot Ones!! Grat work as usual THT. I'd like to give a shout out to the first #18 I ever knew, Thomas Bailey. I loved to watch him return punts. He could juke out 4 defenders while standing in the same spot. Not extremely fast but very quick. I think he still holds a few punt return records.

Thomas Bailey was also a good compliment to Frank Sanders at WR. That was a good duo for us.

Hear ye, Hear ye,

We do not need ANYMORE sign and place kids. We have done more for the junior college system than George Wallace did. We need kids that have the grades and that can come in with no issues. We are undermanned and need kids to come in 2010 not 2012.

I dont care if he has upside, wingspan, whatever. He needs to go to a Sylvan learning center or something. Thats a fact Jack. lol. We can only pray the guys we have signed the past two years will resign. I know Ken Adams originally a TE from 2 classes ago is doing well in JUCO and has talked of resigning.

At least some of these kids are honest. T. Coleman swore he had his grades and now he is headed to JUCO. So these have a year to make it happen. But with the 25 scholarship limit we do not need sign and place kids. We need kids that get smiley faces on their papers not frowns.

THT you were right about Bailey having a great game against UF in 1994. Our whole offense was clicking that day. That's the game Andy Fuller just crushed UF!

"Nix was brilliant, completing 28 of 51 passes for 319 yards and three touchdowns. Stephen Davis gained 113 tough yards on 20 carries. Junior tight end Andy Fuller had the game of his life, catching seven passes for 117 yards and a touchdown. Bailey caught a career-high 10 for 115 yards and a touchdown."

Did someone from the coaching staff say this was a sign and place guy? I think Rivals or Beaver or whomever mentioned it but this is definitnely NOT fact. For all we know this kid is in the fold for the next class. I would trust our coaching staff to have a handle on this issue and not some dudes who sit around and assess someone's ability hypothetically, especially when they've never heard of the kid.

9:02 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...


I'm sure Thomas Bailey did have a good game vs Florida in 1994. The only catch I remember was he caught a crutial 4th and 10 pass on the game winning drive.

Andy Fuller had a monster game that day as well.

Brian Robinson was the MVP with three interceptions including one to set up the winning drive.

Sean, I don't know if he's sign and place or not, and the coaches can't speak of it. I also believe we don't know what is or isn't fact in this matter.

My thoughts are based on the notion that we can't afford to do any sign and places right now.

Wondering out loud about it isn't slamming the coaches, or disloyal to the troops or the flag or some such.
