Our Tar Heel Tiger's Auburn Minute is brought to you by the number:

5


HAPPY LEWIS COLBERT DAY!!!

Lewis Colbert of Phenix City, Ala.; P 1982-85; 1st Team ALL-SEC and ALL-AMERICAN in 1985; led Auburn in punting all four years he was at Auburn, including a booming 45.8-yard avg in 1985. He has the second-longest punt in Auburn history -- a 77 yarder vs SW Louisiana in 1985.

Yes, he actually had to punt in that game!

HONORABLE MENTION:

* Karsten Bailey: Newnan, Ga.; WR 1995-98; 2nd all-time in career receptions with 150, trailing Courtney Taylor by 3; 3rd all-time in receiving yardage (trails Beasley & Goodson); 3rd all-time in TD receptions (Beasley & Obomanu).

* Travaris Robinson: Miami, Fla; DB 1999-2002; ALL-SEC in 2002 when he tied Carlos Rogers for team lead with 4 interceptions. Now an assistant coach at Southern Miss.

* Joe Sullivan: Birmingham, Ala.; QB 1980-81; Pat's brother, Joe led Auburn in passing in '80 and '81 with a two-year total of 1,142 passing yards and 9 touchdowns. (pre)MrsTHT and I witnessed his first game as an AU quarterback. He led the Tigers to a 10-7 win over the TCU Horned Frogs in Ft. Worth, Texas, on Saturday night, Sept. 13, 1980.

* Joe Frazier: Montgomery, Ala.; TB 1991-94; led Auburn in rushing as a freshman in 1991.

Auburn on Saturday. you can be back to Tally before the parties end (believe me, I managed to do a double header a couple of years ago. a miserable UGA @ Auburn game in the rain that morning watching Cox get destroyed, followed by laughing in the rain in Tally as Wake Forest provided the first Shutour FSU has ever been given at home. I was still in my Auburn gear and auburn poncho, and my future father in law was still wearing his UGA duds. We made it from Auburn to Tally in around 3 hours, I think...)

Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

line is currently AU -13 , money line -110

That's pretty much where I'd put it. I wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole, though. At risk of being accused by SteveFC of being a debbie downer, I think it's only a 10 point win.

...then again, some of our best Hotties, like Eddie and Sensi, have faced similar accusations, so I'd be in good company.

from what i've read LAT has their entire OL, QB, and RB back. they were horrid in '08 throwing the ball so they look to pound it on the ground. they're hoping their stud KR,PR guy Livas breaks out as their go-to receiver.

their DL sounds good with one stud DT but iffy on the secondary.

Got no idea who scores the first td, but I'd like to see us start the Chizik era the same way they started the Sullivan-Beasley era, with a long pass on the first play. Let Todd throw one 60 yds down the field just to show everybody that he can do it.

That's assuming that he really can do it.

If it were completed for a long td, well, that would be about the best start possible to this season.

He got no warning of the deletion and here's why. We had a "we'll have to agree to disagree" exchange a couple of weeks ago. However, he made a snotty post on my status which merely says, "Game week. Bout dang time! WAR EAGLE!!!"

I say we start the game without an illegal procedure, or illegal formation, or any sort of penalties on the offensive side. Run past La Tech's strengths, pass over their susceptible secondary, have them huffing and puffing by the 2nd quarter. I'd als o lie to see our D STUFF anything that they could have coming, and the secondary manage their weaker passing game. Is that asking too much for a first game?

Blogger missinit said...

PF....

You young thang! To add to digger's reply,


Correct me if I'm wrong Sean,

Once upon a time, long, long ago cities and towns all over America bottled Coca-Cola. Wherever the original bottle was "bottled" the city or town was embossed into the bottom of the bottle. Once drank the bottle was returned (usually to anywhere that sold Coke) and they would be recycled so over time there would be no telling what city you would get on your bottle.

When we kids would buy a Coke, whoever got a bottle from the farthest away would win. Sometimes we would buy the winner another Coke....big spenders that we were!

Coca-cola..a pioneer in recycling!?!?

Steve and Eddie, with Caudle #2, does that pretty much guarantee Tyrik as a redshirt this season.

I almost spelled redshirt the very wrong way for a family blog

Blogger scottie burns said...

i'll take #1 for 4 yards.

11:37 AM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

tommy, I think it makes a redshirt likely, but not certain. If Todzilla breaks down early, like within the first 4 games, you would likely see Rollison. If Caudle completes more passes to the other team than he does to us, we will likely see Rollison. I would say there is about an 80% chance of a redshirt though.

Steve- I'll be passing along arrangement info later.

mytommy- I would pretty much bet that Rollison will redshirt.

I stated earlier when the announcement occured that I believe that this staff believes that Todd can do great things this season, so I believe that is why you saw Caudle listed as the backup. That is just my opinion on that matter.

This new offense is going to be very interesting. You can expect more turnovers because of the number of exchanges made and the vertical passing game, but hopefully we will see a lot more big plays.

I think the reason Ole Nutt didn't buy into it was due to his conservative nature and the risk involved.

Hmmmmm...the HABOTN Lids improve appearances by 13% to 56%. That's a broad range right there. Hoopie would be in the higher range improved.

Stay away from the Au bets this weekend. My prediction: AU by 10, but that is a wildly unpredictable situation.

Eddie: predicting that we only win by 10 = Reasonable.

Agonizing and imagining the entire season is going to be a disaster because some LBs are on the fall practice sidelines 2 weeks before the first game = Debbie Downer.

The third snap would be a screen for a two yard loss after the holding penalty negated the touchdown run.

Scottie - My favorite one was the guy who commented on the Auburn girls pointing out that they were 13 and 14 years old at the time of the picture. He knew this because one of the girls was his relative.

It should be pointed out that the list is brought to you by Bleacher Report. Bleacher Report is all fan contributed stuff = mostly crapola.

Also, that should have been called hottest fanbase because we do have men in our fan base and I saw no men pics.

Just sayin

I call no foul on the internet viewer if you can't tell the girl is 13 by looking at the picture. I call major foul on that girl's parents for allowing her to dress slutty and adult looking enough to pass as a college student on some kind of whore countdown.

Okay, way to much for me to catch up on from the weekend and I am not even going to try. A tidbit or two from my weekend trip to the Hotlanta area the last two days. Got to see one of the Auburn billboards and they look ausome. The team that played ahead of Prattvegas High was indeed the team that Marcus Lattimore plays for. We got there in the third quarter and Byrnes had already done the damage. By that time, they were salting things away. I got to see Lattimore run the ball about 3 times before they took him out early in the fourth quarter. He did not have any break away runs but did wind up with about 130 yards I think they said. He is a very good looking runner. I sat among some very nice Byrnes fans. They all said that Lattimore is a very good student, solid citizen and generally just a nice young man. I asked them all to go back home and help us get him down on the plains. They indicated that from what they had heard, he was still very high on Auburn even though N. C. had moved into the mix. I enjoyed talking with the folks from S. C. Good peeps. I couldn't help P. H. S. in their game, maybe I am their jinx now. From what I observed, Prattville has a long way to go before they contend for another 6A championship. Of course, they came a long way last year from start to finish and could do it again.

Mon...I turned on the Roundtable to see why you turned it off. What was your issue with them?

1:45 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Hoopie turning on Roundtable due to Monica's complaints just proves any publicity is good publicity, and the roundtable guys know what they are doing (since I know many of you wonder consistently how in the world they can believe anything they are saying).

1:47 PM

When I passed Auburn both going and coming back, I could smell FOOTBALL. Can't wait. I think everything is going to be good, but what do I know.

1:49 PM  
Blogger Monica said...

Hoopie - Doug was talking non-stop about Saban's contract renewal and how it meant he would never leave. When Doug let's his 5 year old homer take over he's hard to take.

1:49 PM  
Blogger Monica said...

I agree with that theory most of the time, Michael. However, it doesn't apply to Doug.

I am not going to turn on the Roundtable because of the bad publicity they have recently received.

How bout this...did Saban's new contract include a buyout clause?

1:53 PM

We will try to correct the problem.

Sean- Saban's buyout clause states that he gets Little Debbies for life.

My prediction? Auburn 35, La Tech 0. We will take no prisoners. These players have something to prove. This will be the first step in a run to the SEC West title. Yes, I still believe in unrealistic expectations!!!

Aeronaut, I was talking about Prattville High School, the 3 time in a row Alabama 6A State Champs playing North Gwinnett, Georgia High School. Final score, NGHS 14, PHS 11. Byrnes S.C. played Central Gwinnett H. S. in the first game of the Progressive National Football Challenge. Final score, Byrnes 43, CGHS 7. I believe that Richardson is a wide receiver for a Lousianna HS.

Eddie...you can breathe easier. Steve's unrealistically positive post at 1:59 pm is much further from reality than last week's Debbie Downer posts.

This last week is gonna drive me nuts. Every post I read is like deja vu all over again.....its..its all running together.

We need an actual game to discuss. I'm so burnt out from waiting, that discussing RRod was ordinary when normally that would be entertainment.

2:38 PM

We're gonna show Steven Ensminger how much we've improved since we got some real coaching staff.

2:46 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

Rich Rod says he didn't do anything wrong. I guess that puts an end to that.

2:49 PM  
Blogger Aeronaut said...

( Steven Ensminger, the guy that had Auburn scholarship as QB, is now the backup punter for La Tech ).

( I am not talking about the position coach at an SEC school, who is now the qb coach at a very small high school )

2:50 PM

Rich Rod is the beacon of morality.

or bacon. I'm not sure.

I do expect to show Coach Ensminger that we have upgraded the coaching staff, but couldn't figure what that particular coach had to do with this particular game.

The beacon of bacon?!? Is that anything like the Queen of Eurasia?

Please don't ever mention that game again. Thank you.

2:58 PM

eh.

Steven Ensminger was a scholarship QB at Auburn. He transferred to LA Tech in 08. I think his departure coincided with the arrival of toni franklin.

I know my proper nouns and it is on purpose.

Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

That was absolutely the worst fake cry ever wasn't it? His eyes were bone dry and he had a smirk on his face when he looked up... At least pinch your boys or something to get some tears flowing so it looks halfway real.


Spanish soccer on ESPN is annoying. There are at least three sets of announcers talking at the same time right now.

3:03 PM  
Blogger Sean said...

Steven Ensminger transferred in 2007. He was not around for the Tony Franklin shenanigans.

3:03 PM  
Blogger Sean said...

I think I just teared up from the thought of getting the boys pinched.

Anyway, it's too bad Richie didn't take that UAT job in hindsight. I'd think we'd be counting on win no. 8 coming up and singing about Bammer being on probation. Again.

3:04 PM

Ensminger had an arm, too.

I thought it was better than Caudle's at the time.

Anyone got the skinny on the weird/sudden Chan Gailey firing in KC?

So why did he transfer? Was he told that he wasn't going to ever have a shot?

Steven Ensminger(Jr) went from 3rd-4th string QB at AU to 2nd string QB at La Tech.

Well....we're moving on up ...to the east side baybie.

Sean,
So sorry I had to leave, friends took me out for lunch for my Bday. Tom is taking me and 4 other couples out tonight. I am going to gain 50 pounds for my 50th!

Anyway, my coke question. Where can I get one of the life size cutouts of Chizik? A friend of mine got one from the local coke guy who stocks Walgreens. I'll stalk a coke guy if I have to, but thought you might give me some pointers. You can email me if you'd rather.

Thanks!
