McCalebb earns his first accolade

Hey everyone. Tailback Onterio McCalebb has been named the Southeastern Conference's Freshman of the Week for his exploits against Louisiana Tech University.

Here is the official run-down from the league office:

Running Back
5-10 • 164
Fort Meade, Fla. (HS/Hargrave Military Academy)

• True freshman rushed for 148 yards on 22 carries with one touchdown in the Tigers’ 37-13 win over Louisiana Tech.

• The 148 yards are the most ever by an Auburn freshman in a season opening game. The previous best was 123 yards by Bo Jackson in 1982.

• In the second half against the Bulldogs, McCalebb rushed for 108 yards on 16 carries and a TD.

Repost from the old thread: "Most of those TV folks were probably in Atlanta and didn't SEE AU play. They just looked at the stats, which we know is incompetent sportscasting! We are fortunate to have JGT give us the straight talk."

Congrats to O Mc. Dude is fast. I kept waiting for him to break a long run. We will see one soon.

I was very impressed with the O line. They really gave Todd time to run the plays.

The defense swarmed to the ball, which is what I expect from an AU defense.

Just correct the turnovers and penalties. At least Ziemba only jumped early once! That is progress.

For those who were asking about the new AU tags, I found out if you keep your current tag you can pay $2.75 fee for a replacement. If you change your personalization because they increased to 6 characters, you have to pay another $50. I was able to reserve my new personalization last night, so I guess they are available now. A lot of the personalization using 6 characters were already taken.

I would expect more people show up for this week's game. I'm sure MSU will bring a strong fan base. They are excited about their new coaching staff too. The reported 81000 and some change in attendance Saturday seemed generous to me. This is why Auburn doesn't need to expand the stadium. They just need to get back on the winning track and get these games sold out.

What county are you in? I went by the Inverness office in Shelby County and the woman there told me if I wanted the new tag I had to pay $50. Where did you find out we could get it for $2.75? I have to do some checking around.

Madison County cincy, here's the e-mail. Maybe it has something to do with the personalization:

From: Jimmy R Mayo []

Subject: Re: Auburn Tags

We are scheduled to receive them sometime in Sept. Once we receive them
you can turn in your old tag and get the new one for $2.75 replacement fee.

I said that yesterday. I know a lot of people want us to put an upper deck over the endzones, but until we sell out or get close to selling out the minor games, there is no need to expand the stadium...just continue to clean it up and make it more modern.

Maybe more money should go to the concession stand food.

Cincy, what's you e-mail address and I will forward you the complete e-mail. I changed my personalization, so I have to pay $50.

Isn't Onterrio the one whose mother has had trouble with drugs and they lived in their car for awhile? I believe he lived with his coach for a time? Seems I remember him saying he wanted to make it to the NFL so he could help his mom. Am I remembering this correctly or dreaming it?

AU1NO4-I agree with the timing of the recruit. I also think it is to offset an announcement that UAT will get this week from some DE in North Carolina on Wednesday. he is down to them and UNC.

However, i do not follow recruiting so what do i know. But Owens is 1 of the package of 5 I am expecting to commit to AU.

I think the committment was planned but I think we would have gotten it win or lose. I definately think we will get a big committment after our 1st lose just to ease the sting.

He shoved a VT player long after the whistle, then, upon getting a personal foul, yelled at a ref and pushed him as well, drawing a second personal foul. Out. Of. Control. He got a personal visit from $atan when he got back to the bench.

Just finished watching most of MSU game. Should be able to beat them if we contain Dixon and the 2nd string QB Relf, a Montgomery product. Relf imo is a lot like Kodi, strong arm, good runner, average accuracy. Their D gave up some big plays but were helped by lots of penalties and sloppy play from JSU.

Well the breaking the nose of a frat guy case was last year. Swept under the rug, no charges.

During the game he got in a scuffle with a VT guy, and pushed him to the ground after the play was called dead. The VT guy got up and the ref got between them, and then mcclain shoved / struck the ref. He drew two personal fouls.

little nicky looked terrified when facing rolo. That guy is, like most other bammers, out of control.

The thug will be playing next week. Don't expect anyone to question that. Falling up the stairs is not good for health.

It was reported in Gentry Estes' column, Sensi.

I expected the Bama nation to excuse his behavior, but to see the coaches name him defensive player of the week...

I guess it shouldn't be surprising. I have heard Saban supporters state he will do anything to win, and there is a lot of truth in that statement. Not sure it is all positive as the Saban Worshipers choose to believe.
