Practice notes, 8/12

I'm going to do this in stages as I did last night.

STAGE ONE
  • Trooper Taylor is very high on his freshmen (Emory Blake, D'Angelo Benton, Anthony Gulley and Travante Stallworth) and said he'll explore the idea of redshirting an experienced player to ensure playing time for the freshmen.

  • Onterrio McCalebb: "When I score touchdowns, I think about money. If you ask the players, 'What does McCalebb say when he gets the ball on the 1-yard line?' Most of the players will tell you: 'That's money.' Because you have to get in the end zone."

  • Blake said McCalebb is so fast that "he chases rabbits and squirrels."

  • Tommy Thigpen said his top three safeties are Zac Etheridge, Drew Cole and Mike Slade. It looks as though Daren Bates, who arrived on campus for the first time late last week, is the No. 4 guy. He's going to play.

  • Neil Caudle didn't seem very enthusiastic today. He said his first scrimmage drive was a three-and-out. His second ended with an interception -- despite alleged claims to the contrary from Birmingham-area radio guys. Caudle said he thinks he's done enough to start.

  • Kodi Burns seemed even-keeled as usual; said he thinks he's done enough to start.

  • Chris Todd seemed more jovial than usual; said he thinks he's done enough to start.

  • Mario Fannin said he looks up to McCalebb because "he plays with a lot of heart. The coaches like that about him."

Jay, did you see Caudle leave last night. I am wondering if he intentionally skipped the interviews because of his frustration. I am guessing he is done.

I find Anthony Gulley's contributions interesting. He played 1-A football in this state. Albeit, he played at one of the better 1-A programs in Brantley, that's still quite a jump in competition.

I have no reason to think Caudle is done.

Allegedly, Al Del Greco was on the radio this morning championing Caudle as THE NEXT QUARTERBACK after watching the scrimmage last night.

Courtney Taylor played at a 1A school, too.

Blogger §teve From Columbia said...

As for Kodi thinking he is good enough to start, I get the impression he is saying it to convince himself. He always says that. My guess is he is relegated to the number 3 spot behind Todd and Tyrik. I am anticipating seeing Tyrik take over around the UT game.

Also, from the previous thread. Thanks Eddie for posting the media marketing in the SEC story. Interesting read.

The idea of redshirting a returner to allow one of these freshmen to play is intriguing. This group of true freshmen receivers does look to be impressive.

The "SEC Digital Policy" is a very hot topic among newspaper hacks and internet people right now.

The companies that back us are about to enter this fight arm-in-arm. I suspect the SEC soon will back off many of its mandates.

1:11 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

I like Al Del Greco, but he isn't the king of predictions.

Steve,

If Tyrik is starting by the UT game, then I worry about our offense. I don't see us throwing a true freshman out to start his 1st game in our 1st road game of the year unless something has gone wrong.

1:12 PM  
Blogger §teve From Columbia said...

I don't see him starting against UT, but I see him eventually coming in when our offense is stuggling. When that happens, I think there is a good chance he will take the job.

1:13 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

I guess that's possible.

I've never seen the kid play and I don't know if he can lead at team at the SEC level, so I'll hold judgement until I see him play.

Thoughts ...

1. I played at a 1A school.
2. Jay G, you should show AU your new digital policy.
3. Rollison may very well be the most talented QB we have on campus. In fact, I suspect he is.
4. I have a Webinar this afternoon -- whatever that is.

1:17 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Webinar's suck. That is all.

1:18 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

I am positive Rolison is the moset talentd qb on campus. He just isn't ready to start

1:19 PM  
Blogger Aeronaut said...

Did cincy get rid of the armadillo yet?

1:19 PM  
Blogger §teve From Columbia said...

I am under the impression Rollison is our most talented QB, but we have a lot of talent at the QB position. Todd, Caudle, and Burns are all very talented. I think coaching and how we prepared the QBs in the past have hurt them. They are basically pulling a Greg Luganis, a beautiful dive until they hit their head on the diving board.

1:23 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

I'll be greatly surprised if Kodi Burns gets significant playing time at Auburn again.

Just from what little video I have seen, he still seems to change his form and release from pass to pass. I don't see Gus putting up with that.

1:26 PM  
Blogger §teve From Columbia said...

The feeling I get is both Kodi and Caudle are done. Todd will likely be the man while Rollison is brought along. I am also thinking Moseley may turn out to be much better than anticipated, although he could likely become the permanent backup to Rollison.

1:28 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

I don't buy that we have a lot of talent at the QB position. Not one bit. I think it's just the opposite and that is exactly why Rollison will play this year. If we had a lot of talent, we would be redshirting Rollison before it even got to this point. Rollison is probably our best option.

1:31 PM  
Blogger §teve From Columbia said...

Eddie, there is a difference between talent and actual performance. Our receivers last season were very talented. Hawthorne was one of the top receivers in the nation coming out of high school. Just because a player has talent doesn't mean that he plays well. Like I say, we had the best suck receivers in the nation last season. It comes down to coaching and preparation.

I think webinars should be illegal in Alabama ... kinda like nekkid women on wine bottles ... and other things.

1:33 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Steve- I'm talking about QB's not WR's. But if Trooper is thinking about redshirting veteran players to play true freshman, then you can use the same analogy there also.

1:33 PM  
Blogger §teve From Columbia said...

A different way of looking at it. Marks was a two star guy. He was coached up well by Price and is now playing on Sundays. He is a counter example to what we have done to these QBs. It can be blamed on various things, such as Knos, Franklin, Borges, Tuberville, yadda yadda yadda. The fact is, we haven't done a good job of developing QBs. We have done an excellent job developing linebackers, defensive ends, running backs, and tackles.

Goldberg should be a little cautious while captioning pictures.

"Trooper Taylor: He likes the young receivers" <-- bad idea.

I hate to do this because it seems so cheesy, but Jay G. has pointed out why Auburn develops linebackers, defensive ends, running backs, and tackles before.

"This is a power team. It's going to be a power team, and that's just how it is." - Jay G. Tate the day Tony Franklin was fired

I agree with that statement as the history backs it quite convincingly.

Sensi, I would suggest that we develop those positions better than we do QBs. It isn't we sign better players at those positions. This comes down to the coaching.

Hmm, the record says otherwise Eddie. Tubs proved that he could win the games he shouldn't. Unfortunately he also proved he could lose the games he shouldn't. But it seems you missed the point on developing QBs, which was the topic. We haven't had a coach that did a good job of developing QBs since Pat Dye. Even Bowden was pretty boneheaded when it came to developing a backup for Craig.

Blogger Eddie's Brother said...

I'm late to the dance this afternoon, but a couple of thoughts on Lac and the previous post on #24:

I worked with the RB's in 02 and 03 and I remember a telling comment from Ronnie Brown during a scrimmage in Spring Practice 03. Ronnie of course was on equal status with Lac at this point (as he pretty much was the rest of his career at Auburn) after what happened in 02, but during this one play in the scrimmage, Lac went on one of his vintage runs about 25 yards from the endzone where he makes like 4 or 5 ridiculous cuts around defenders and scores a touchdown. Ronnie was on the sideline watching and after seeing this he turned to everyone around him and said with a smile, "I can't do that s--t."

Like Jay G. said, he also had that competitive streak where he didn't avoid contact (which is why I think we all knew his career in the NFL would be so start-stop). Ronnie running over Jason Allen in Knoxville in 04 (not to mention the year before in 03) gets a lot of play (rightfully so) with Auburn fans, but Carnell did the same thing to Allen to score later in that game, though he did not so much run over Allen as Allen just sort of bounced off of Lac and fell to the ground.

Also, for those who didn't like Bramblett's "Go Crazy Cadillac" call (for the record, not a huge fan of RB either) from the 03 Bama game and thought it was weird, that was all about being Lac's euphemism for playing great. Earlier that year after he ran all over Arkansas in the 10-3 win in Fayettenam, Lac spent all of his time in the locker room afterwards yelling to noone in particular, "I'm goin' crazy."

I still probably like Ronnie more as a person and think in a lot of ways he's just as good if not better (certainly more complete I think) than Lac, but Lac WAS special (obvious, right?). Sorry for the epic post.

Mon....I imagine you are listening to PF....I was sure PF was going to get that chick to explain how to do 2 at once. He stumped her with the word simutaneous. Polysyllabics get 'em every time.

As I say, fear Todzilla. He is coming.

Hoopie - If you're talking about "Tammy" I admit that I muted her. When I realized she was about to start actually answering that idiot guy I knew I couldn't take it. Sounds like I made a good move.

Loganville, you must have missed it. I announced Todd as the starter a couple of months back. Fear Todzilla.

Steve speaks the truth, he issued the Chris Todd warning back in the spring.

I'm rollin' with Rollison. No matter when they decide to start putting him in.

And for the record, I am not in love with Todd. I see him as the best decision maker we have with experience. I liked what I saw from him in terms of decision making last season. I did see his throws get more and more erratic, but the decision making was there.

I think Todd gives us the best chance of having a consistent offensive performance. I in no way think he has the big play potential that Kodi does. I just think his down side isn't nearly so low.

Burns should use his redshirt this year and transfer.

Agreed, RK.

Video DEBUT may be delayed slightly. I'm experiencing an unusual upload issue. I'll keep you updated.

Mon...he got her to the brink and smartly went to a commerical.

Steve definitely predicted Toddzilla as the most likely outcome. Of course Steve has also predicted every possible outcome.

I don't know, Hoop. Steve has been saying Todd for a while now.

Hypothetical question...Is it wrong to wish for someone to die in a car crash?

Well, there was my Brent Poole period, but other than that, it has been Todd.

Video problem solved.

DEBUT on schedule: 3:30 p.m. CDT.

And contrary to popular opinion, our offensive problems were not related to Todd early on. It had more to do with Lee Ziemba being able to count to 3.

Kristina..yes it has been what he has predicted as most likely. He has also over the course of the past spring/summer covered most every other possible outcome.

His analyis is solid and I generally agree....I'm just poking at him.

If Chris Todd's arm is healthy, then I am fine with it. He definately made better decisions and seemed to have the team behind him far more than Burns last year.

why when I read the QB's qotes about each of them "starting" does the song "three blind mice" keep spinning throught my head.

Honestly, someone has got to be better that the others... I getting real nervous about the " they all suck equally" answer

3:28 PM  
Blogger Kristina said...

Well I didn't think there was a chance Todd would be the guy this year, so I have to hand it to him for predicting that at all.

I think most of us were just thinking there was no way his arm would be where it needed to be.

I say start tyrick from the get go....The others are just simply no good.Really not much argument to be made, Tyrick has more talent than all of the rest combined. But I will support whoever they start....no booing please!

And Todd had plenty to do with the offensive problems. NOODLE ARM. If he is "healthy" now so be it but I better not see those wet noodle middle school looking passes or I might throw up in my mouth a little

Burns is out. Wildcat man or safety. or middle tennessee.I hate it cause I like the guy but he is not an SEC QB.

3:43 PM  
Blogger Nooj4AU(qualify tyrick!) said...

Burns cant even throw a pass to a back in the flats!!!! I mean its a 9th grader throw and he throws it at the feet of the WR EVERYTIME!

With a healthy CT my predictions for the season are elevated to 8 wins! Malzahn must already have his pecking order. I saw it's Todd, Rollison, Burns. Tyrik gets a year to learn behind a pretty good decision maker before taking over the team.

It's funny that the QBs performances seemed to be a reflection of the reputations that they have earned thus far. Burns : FG and a 3 & out Caudle: INT and 3 & out.

I just read that D. Bates had an INT, a forced fumble and several tackles! He said he was going to prove the scouts wrong about ranking him so low.

If I remember correctly, Steve qualified his prediction, based on Toddzilla's recovery. The chances of full recovery from that injury are low.

DL..I have the 3 blind mice fear also. I've refrained from comment so far hoping that one really has outdistanced the others and the coaches are just waiting.
