Practice notes, 8/30

Hey everyone. Let's boogie.
  • Auburn practiced for approximately two hours in the rain this evening. The team was in full pads.

  • Gene Chizik seemed unusually satisfied with the effort he saw on the field tonight.

  • Chizik still seems pretty high on S Daren Bates, even entertaining the idea of starting the freshman at free safety on Saturday.

  • Kodi Burns sounded confident that he's the Wildcat quarterback.

  • TB Mario Fannin said he's the No. 1 guy on punt return and is in a mix with Onterio McCalebb, Harry Adams and Terrell Zachery on the kickoff-return team.

  • OL Andrew McCain said he'll be spending more time than usual this week watching "cut-ups" of Louisiana Tech's defensive front. Auburn's video guys provide DVDs for players to view at home. McCain thinks many players will cherish those DVDs this week.

  • Walt McFadden said Chizik has been showing highlights of Auburn's 2004 season lately ... in an effort to show younger players how things are supposed to work on the Plains.

From the previous thread as I was expounding on hopes as a new thread was being built.

Okay so I did some reading on La Tech's site (okay so I'm anxious and nervous), evidently they were a decent run and a very poor passing team in their conference last year, and it should be more of the same this year. I'm hoping the D Line and LB depth can handle their run, because they will probably be doing that alot, from what it sounds like.

Don't remember Miss Luzanne. I did have stone cold fox for a 5th grade Teacher. She gave us about 10 mimeographed worksheets every day. Let's just say that particular smell had embarassing effects on me for several years afterwards.

so, when you get old and your performance drops off, you think you'll try mimeograph ink before you ask your doctor about cialis?

Norm, I had a summer job at the mill, digging ditches with the dregs of society. You know how hard it was to show up at 5:30 in the morning with a serious hangover, then have that smell hit you. Made you want to call Earls name real bad.

I've never been to Prattville. Is that good? Or bad?

I did drive by on I-65 in 1978 when headed from Auburn to Nashville for the Vandy game (49-7 AU win).

Also spent 4 weeks at Maxwell AFB in the BUH-LAZING hot summer of 1980. That's about as close to Prattville as I've been.
