Belated Tuesday night report

Hey everyone. I was in a hurry to get home Wednesday night, so I didn't provide a post-practice report. I'll denote that with a BONUS tag.
  • Gus Malzahn on Auburn's pace, which didn't satisfy him last week: ``we’re wanting to snap the football as fast as we can and keep the hammer down and not give them time to look up."

  • Malzahn on if he'll use TB Eric Smith this weekend: ``We’ll just have to see. It’s hard to say right now. We’re just kinda moving him around."

    BONUS
  • LB Craig Stevens on the beat-writer squabble he witnessed a few weeks back: ``I thought they were playing at first. I didn't know what to believe. I thought I was getting punked."

  • Stevens on his performance against Louisiana Tech: ``The first half, I'm not gonna lie. I was tired in the first half because I had to run down on the first kickoff and then they had a long drive right after that. It took me a while to get my breath back. Once I got my breath back and got my second wind, I was OK."

  • OL Andrew McCain on the task ahead: ``Our goal is to get to Atlanta and win in Atlanta. Mississippi State comes in with a really good defense. They play fast. They play physical. We've got a challenge ahead of us and we're in a situation where this is one practical step we can take toward our goal.

    BONUS
  • McCain on the team's approach heading into the Louisiana Tech game: ``Coach Chizik made a point before we left LaGrange to ride over here for the game … that people were going to watch us and people are going to her about us and how that game went. Based on that, they're going to make judgments on who we are. It's the same thing in life: People either see you do something or hear about something you did and they're making judgments on who you are.

  • McCain on why coaches seem almost grumpy this week: ``They don't want anybody to get ahead of themselves. It's one game and there's a whole lot more to come. It's one of those things where we said: We're going to enjoy this (on) Saturday night. That's the fruit of all the labor we've put in. Then the labor starts over again the next day."

  • Kodi Burns on the "Wildcat" formation: ``I definitely think it has a lot more potential for it to be better than it was. If you notice, the guys who were tackling either Onterio or me were in the secondary. I guess it’s a pretty good sign we can get on those guys. We just have to be able to make them miss and go all the way. With the Wildcat, I think we’re just scratching the surface."

I haven't really liked the pregame video since about 2005 or so. 2004 was the best. I remember being like "Wow, that was awesome" when they showed it early in the season, before we even knwe we were good.

So basically, we are as good as our pregame warm up video, and this new one is just pretty good but not great, so I estimate 7 or 8 wins.

Sensi, thanks for the excellent Strickland article. It is amazing how similar the scores in the last two openers were, while the feeling we got from them is totally different.

It just goes to show you can't really judge a performance solely on the point spread. Against LaMo, we won, but without the sustained drives. Against LaTech, it was as if they were grasping at straws to try to stop us.

One of the ways I judge a performance is by the number of first downs. If I remember correctly, we had 29 versus LaTech's 19. That is a much better indicator of how the game went. When you dominate in terms of number of first downs you win, unless you are playing a Steve Spurrier team in the 90s.

4:25 PM

Nice choice with the Ryan Adams.

4:37 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

Fan of the RA, RK?

Nice.

4:38 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

A big difference in the openers from the past two years is how we scored.

Last year it was a punt return and a defensive TD, and really only two sustained drives the whole game and we looked confused trying to do anything.

This year it a long play, long drives and offensive TD's.


I do disagree with the article that the fumble to start the 2nd half would have been huge to the team last year in the opener, it was too early for that to kill us.

However if we had played this game with La Tech in October or November of last year and it was 13-10 and we fumbled, they win the game.

MSU's hope has to be that Anthony Dixon will make a serious contribution offensively. Against Jax State they did pretty much rely on the run, but Dixon is supposedly their most talented back.

Don't forget that Greg "Use to coach receivers" Knox has said that MSU has as good a set of runningbacks as he has been around. Apparently Ronnie, Caddy, Irons, and Rudy have some competition. Now we find out how big of an expert on runningbacks Knox really is.

I would check out the Microsoft Zune's Cincy, I was given a Zune when my Ipod crapped out on me. I have had zero problems with it, and the interface is pretty easy to use. The biggest advantage of it for me over the ipod is the subscription service the Zune service offers. I pay $15/month for unlimited music, compared to a buck/song with Itunes. I don't know if he listens to alot of music but if he does it is a much cheaper option.

There is a Zune HD coming out before Christmas, it is supposed to be comparable to a Ipod touch.

Definitely worth checking out.

Re: The Poll: I'm just happy you dropped Iowa to 25 (though, I still think out is where they belong. A team that barely wins because a 1-AA team beats itself with chip shot field goals isn't better than 95 other teams). I'm okay with your poll. Plus, you have Bama lower than 86% of the voters.

Thanks for all the advice on the iPod. I will get my daughter to do a little sleuthing and see what purposes he has in mind. I'm thinking he wants to be able to use it when he works out.

The most impressive thing about the first game had nothing to do with passing or running. The impressive thing about the first game was how few mistakes we made offensively. Last season we looked the opponent square in the eye and shot ourselves in the foot. The worst part was we did it over and over again. Barney Fyffe would be proud. The most impressive thing about the first game was that a team that looked like it didn't know what it was doing all of last season looked prepared. Regardless of our record this season, ChizCo is a success in my book.

Taylor also said his receivers didn't miss an assignment on running routes or blocking.

Cincy- I have an ishuffle and itouch. The shuffle is the one I run, workout with. I have used the touch while working out and it just seemed too bulky. Touch also has contacts, calender and internet access, so it has that going for it.

Is this weekend a sellout? I hear there are RVs rolling in now.

Evidently Coach Chizik feels the OMac hype is premature. According to Andrew Gribble coach CGC stated the following in his SEC Teleinterview today.



“People can jump to a lot of conclusions with one football game. We don’t know what he is yet. He had one good football game and there was a lot of other people responsible for his success other than him. That was one game out of the box. We’ve blinked and moved on. He’s got to continue to just be a better football player. As the season goes on, whether he has earned the right to handle the ball more remains to be seen. If he does earn that right, can he do it? Well, that remains to be seen, too.

“So we’re kind of in a feeling out process, too. We’re not going to put a whole lot of stock into a guy that rushes for 110-some odd yards one time. If you do it six or seven times in a row, now you’ve got our attention.“

One game does not a season make.
But I was impresssed by the movement of the ball and the smooth way the team went about it's business. I also was very impressed with the adjustments made during half time. The continuation of the offense during the whole second half. No sitting or squating on the ball after we got the 23-13 lead.

Sounds like a challenge to me. Will FAH step up to it? 6 or 7 100+ games would be nice.

Kathy ... don't know if it is a sell out but we carried the motorhome over today (can't go in until 4 PM on Wednesdays in the hay fields) We pulled in at about 4:05 and there were already several there ... but I don't believe there were as many as there was last Wednesday. When we left it was probably half full of RVs

Jay G, you take a break from band practice to watch any of the footey match against the islands of Trinidad and Tobago?

Does that win guarantee the US a spot in the World Cup?

I used to walk down Biggio on my way to class and would love how the RVs would start lining the street on Wednesday. Same peeps every week. I really should have taken the time to meet some of them, but was always too "busy." I bet they had great stories.

I'll work on that. Don't want to stain my rep, you know.

I think the apples are great, but hummus is boring. I've never had the two together, so maybe it balances out to something good.

Speaking of @$$hats, I was driving from Bham to the Gump this afternoon following a meeting at a company my agency regulates, there were aforementioned @$$chapeaus in Kia hatchback which was being operated in a reckless fashion.

I finally figured out why. The @$$fez in the back seat was mooning everyone, and his @$$beret buddies were so tickled by it that the auto was swerving as they yukked it up.

CIncy-my daughter got me hooked on hummus. I use the crusty bread with it. Can't eat much though, while trying to get to my orginal weight.

Eddie...so according to your source, CGC is very high on Omac. Why then do you think CGC made that statement?

BTW, I never said that CGC wasn't high on Omac...I didn't refer to the coaches opinion on Omac at all.


I read his statement as: Omac has a lot of work to do before the FANS should expect something special. I think that CGC is trying to calm down the fans.

CGC is trying to prevent invalid positive speculation.

I got a notice that my cornhole bags would be delivered tomorrow. I am a little concerned though because the email said my RED and navy blue bags would be delivered Thursday. In response to my panicked email the sender assured me he sent ORANGE. I am going to be one mad woman if they sent red.

ESPN article on TOP 25 Recruiters


Trooper Taylor, Auburn
The top recruiter on what is a very good recruiting staff, Taylor first started gaining notoriety during the Class of 2005, when he helped Phillip Fulmer and Tennessee assemble an outstanding recruiting class. Thus far at Auburn, Taylor has helped to introduce several outside-of-the-box ideas like the "Big Cat Recruiting Weekend" that took place in the spring. Atlanta is a very important area for Auburn (parts of the metro area are less than an hour from the campus) and Taylor landed his first major commitment from the area in Under Armour All-American Antonio Goodwin (Booker T. Washington). Give Taylor credit with making a strong evaluation on Goodwin, who didn't have the buzz of other players, but is a four-star-rated prospect and the No. 23 overall prospect in the country.

It's always something. Can't win


Aw shucks JGT, thicker skin than that on picks that are public. You could have come back with Pitt beat a tough Youngstown State team that was coming off a 4 win 2008 (uh, nevermind), or how about Pitt freshman was the leading rusher with 129 yards, the most for a frosh in an opener since Dorsett did it in 1975...sounds like our frosh...

All is good, I simply noticed you ranked both Pitt and PSU above the majority of your peers.

PS - Is ESPN/ABC disproportionately represented among the AP voters? I guess they do watch the games...

Got ya Hoopie. Coosa=nice guy, not like me. We go back a long way. Started Auburn together, worked with the Highway Department together. We kind of split paths in 1961 when I moved to the Gump. I saw him at our 40th HS reunion in 1997 but missed him at our 50th in 2007. You know that you are old when you start talking about having a 50th reunion.

I am going to be a little cautious on this game and pick it AU 21, MSU 13. I think that we should be aware of over optimism.

But over optimism is so much fun. I am picking 35-10.

Cincy, Catching people in a picture when they are just being themselves is never a horrible picture. I think that you like very nice. I thought maybe you had been frightened by a missed CH toss.
