Herring gets the nod

Thanks to Texas Lolo, one of the very first HOTTIES, for passing this nugget along:


Seahawks promote Will Herring to starting linebacker spot


Will Herring took an unconventional path from high-school option quarterback to college safety to NFL linebacker. He'll replace injured Leroy Hill on Sunday against the 49ers.

By Percy Allen
Seattle Times staff reporter

Will Herring made a name for himself as a special-teams maniac since the Seahawks selected him in the fifth round of the 2007 NFL draft.

When you're a backup linebacker, you get work any way you can.

Playing on punts, punt returns, kickoffs and kickoff returns is hard work, but has paid big dividends. It gave Herring a chance to hone his defensive skills.

"I've come a long ways in a short time," said Herring, a three-year starting quarterback at Opelika High School in Alabama and a three-year starting free safety at Auburn.

since you bring so much traffic to the MA.... have they approached you about a raise?

Who do we need to write in the MA org? We can start a grass roots effort... if not a raise at LEAST a gulfstream to take you to all away games???

Laugh at yourself and watch others smile.

O to be wise as the years turns to decades

I am wise I just know it but

I just can’t seem to find the STUFF

When I was young I already knew it all but
now that I am older I have many doubts.

I have acquired wisdom over time but

I keep wondering when is the STUFF going to kick in.

I have felt a little wisdom every now and then like
When my grand daughter asked “how did you get to be so old?”
I lowered my voice as if imparting a valuable secret and said through not dying, that is the trick

I am a wisdom keeper but only because

I cant’ find the STUFF

So don’t despair my young friends some day you will hold the wisdom

But dang it where is the SUTFF

Will Herring was a good player and a good Auburn man. He played some as a freshman and was a hard working blue collar type of guy. It is good to see his hard work paying off.

I remember the PA guy at Ooltewah for basketball always would say "traaaaaaaaavling". It would drive crazy until we just starting saying "George Raaaaaaaaaaavling".

I also remember the Owls having this big red headed guy who lit us up for a bunch of points.

I got in a big argument at the LA Tech game about Adam and Will being brothers. I mean, how could they not be? They're both white defenders who wore a number in the 30s. They even look alike on the field. Needless to say, I was ignorant.

did yall know each game is sponsored now? crazy. i found this on the practice notes on www.auburntigers.com:

"Saturday's game will kick off at 6:45 p.m. CT from Jordan-Hare Stadium. The game, which is sponsored by Verizon Wireless, will be televised by ESPN2."

Verizon? seriously?

i figured Eddie. wait, seriously, they're selling those?

the Osmose Pressure Treated Wood commercial popped in my head when i typed that.

12:48 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Scottie B- I need to check my tickets. I actually think they printed those on the tickets. Since the game will be sponsored by Verizon, does that mean that we will have Verizon service there during the game?? AT&T service sucks, but I had my problems with Verizon and Auburn on gameday before.

12:49 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Scottie- They are definitely selling them. A couple of students came up with the idea, got Trooper's permision and they will donate a portion of the proceeds to charities of Trooper's desire. Trooper has said he is going to spread the wealth among different charities. Cool deal. Good reason to buy one. I saw them during the MSU game.

I also find it very interesting that West Virginia supposedly has some very good pass rushers. The thing is, to pass rush, you have to know where the ball is. I think that is a major reason we haven't had a sack yet.

That reminds me, Steve. This may have already been discussed, but did anybody else notice how often AU's offense fooled FSN's cameras last week? They must have lost sight of the ball 6 or 7 times.

2:31 PM

Scott C, that seems to be the norm for a Malzahn offense. I noticed it with Tulsa in their bowl game. I also noticed that TV occasionally missed a play because they were going so quick. It is irritating to watch, but I love the results.

By the way, it is wonderful to have an offense where the talk is so different. Every year we use to wonder if we would open the playbook, close the playbook, peek in or whatever. Malzahn is pretty simple. He is always adding to the book so expect anything. Well, anything other than him saying we need to simplify the offense and get back to fundamentals. That won't happen.

Steve,

I wasn't considering your Sensi support in my previous remark, I was noticing that in your continuing posts analyzing WV, you seem to be making a stronger case each time about their strengths and our weaknesses. Almost as if you are expecting a much closer game than you first predicted, maybe that you are unsure about even your 42 to 24 call.

2:35 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

I must admit that after reading up on WV, I am more impressed with them. There are lots of things to like about that team.

Why do I think we win? Ben Tate and the offensive line. Their defensive line is pretty good, but they have some injuries.

Also, our defensive line against their younger offensive line looks like a winner too.

This gets into my cruitin concern. The most important players are linemen, not star runningbacks. We need more quality linemen.

The football games are on, and that's just what we're yearning.
That's how it is with God's love for Auburn
Once you've experienced it
You want to sing, War Eagle all day,
You want to pass it on

I wish for you my friend, this happiness that I've found
You can come join in, it matters not where you're bound, as long as it isn't T-loser.

THT, I tried to get to the 88th post for you but I was researching WV.

Oh yes. If they put 8 or 9 in the box they are dead in so many ways. First, because we are very quick to get the ball outside. Second, because Todd has already proven he can burn teams deep.

And third may be the most important. Even with 8 or 9 in the box, Ben Tate will likely still get his yards. Tate isn't Superman, but Superman isn't no Ben Tate. Tate is doing some Ronnie Brown/Jason Allen type running. Yes Jason, you were where you were suppose to be, but it really didn't matter.

The State game was replayed last night, and I noticed that the Bullies used a 3-3-5 alignment frequently.

J-Z, watch it. You are on the way to being a dirty old man also, if you are lucky.

btw, picked up a couple of AU license plates at DMV today!!! Our vehicles will look soooooo much better now!

Provided you don't drive a Murano, THT.

3:15 PM  
Blogger IV said...

THT are yours special vanity tags like we can get in AL? If so, what did you have put on yours?

3:15 PM  
Blogger j-z said...

Yeah...Muranos are chick cars.

crap THT. i let you down. don't know how. but i feel like i did. i will now cuss Sensi to make up for it.

HATE BAMA.

IV - our AU plates just have the orange/blue AU logo on the left, 4 characters in the middle, and then a small vertical
A
U
on the far right. I didn't get mine personalized. But maybe I will for the car due for a tag in October.

3:21 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

either 1957 or H8UA
although both are probably already taken.

3:22 PM  
Blogger IV said...

Sounds good THT, My AL AU plate, old style,is personalized with CLH IV on it. I couldn't get Mrs, IV to get one. WE will get the new AU plates in May of next year, maybe I can talk her into one then. She is a true Auburn girl, just old fashioned at times.

See, I even cuss myself!

Someone! Anyone! Give me some of the koolaid!

3:25 PM  
Blogger IV said...

Sensi, Try SteveFC's Koolaid.

3:27 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Don't look to me for kool-aid, Sensi. Each day closer to the game I get more and more worried. WV's QB + Devine scares me. My gallbladder is tied in knots.

3:27 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Didn't Jan Terri attend U. Alabama?

3:28 PM  
Blogger IV said...

My gallbladder would be tied in a knot also, if I had one.

3:28 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Sensi, I got my Kool-Aid from the do-it-yourself link in my previous post.

Is anyone going to pull for Tennessee? Personally I would love to see Florida break the century mark in scoring.

3:29 PM  
Blogger IV said...

I also lack a spleen and a thyroid. I am operating on the bare minimum.

3:30 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

JayGT - you referenced Texas Lolo, which made me wonder, whatever happened to Buck, the very first Hottie poster? And who is this Texas Lolo who I don't recall posting but who still passes along nuggets?

3:31 PM  
Blogger IV said...

Steve, I am going to pull for both of them to lose.

3:31 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

yes, I'm pulling for the Vols, even though I love Tim Tebow. I generally pull for teams on AU's schedule over teams not on AU's schedule, with one notable exception, of course.

KEEPING THE HATE ALIVE!

3:33 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Wow, IV, that's a lot of organ removal. Sounds like now you're all heart!

3:34 PM  
Blogger IV said...

No THT, I am alot of stomach.

3:34 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

100 + 88 coming up. It's just not the same.

3:35 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

well, I'm that, too, IV. And I didn't have to lose any organs to get there.

3:36 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Jay G - No, Jan Terri did not attend Alabama. But she did date Bear Bryant.

hello hotties!

Is it puppet hour??

3:36 PM  
Blogger IV said...

I also don't have a pipe organ.

3:36 PM  
Blogger michael said...

It's Puppet Hour somewhere, 2.0, so let the nonsense flow if you are feeling it!

Hey notice to the Bammers:

Giving Nick Saban "credit" for "winning" two national championships in RECRUITING is BS

Burn Bama Burn.

3:37 PM

Hey 2.0!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Long time no talkie.

3:38 PM  
Blogger IV said...

Wow, there she is. I've missed you 2.0. How are things in the land of Columbus?

3:38 PM  
Blogger j-z said...

I think "date" is a misnomer for what Jan Terri did to Bear Bryant.

3:38 PM  
Blogger Sensi said...

I demand a Get Down Goblin mashup with the Slap Chop remix.

3:38 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Where did Jan Terri Saban go to school - WV?

Hey THT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Long time no transfersies.
