Other observations

Here's a list of some stuff that didn't fit elsewhere:
  • Auburn-Ball State television information:
    • Live:
      FOX Sports Midwest
      FOX Sports South
      FOX Sports Southwest
      FOX Sports Houston

    • On delay:
      FOX Sports Arizona (9/28 @ 6:30 p.m. PT)
      FOX Sports West (9/26 @ 11:15 p.m. PT)

  • NEW DE Hot Carter said tonight that he expects to play this weekend against Ball State.

  • NEW DT Mike Blanc said he played sparingly against Louisiana Tech because he was being disciplined for tardiness. That was the night Nick Fairley started.

  • Gene Chizik has gone out of his way to make Auburn hospitable to NFL scouts. I see them much more often these days. Moments ago, I saw a gaggle of scouts rolling through the lobby. They represented the Raiders, Chargers, Chiefs and Bills.

  • Remember how Trooper Taylor always said Tim Hawthorne can't make the club in the tub? He apparently told No. 13 the same thing to his face. ``(I) probably thought about
    tatting it on my forearm just to remind me."

  • Hawthorne described Anthony Gulley as "the countriest guy I know."

  • Ben Tate on why Auburn has outscored opponents 66-19 in the second half: ``I think it has to do with the pace of our offense. The defense has to start wearing down in the second half. That's when you start piling on the rushing yards, passing yards, whatever. The blocking gets a little easier for the offensive linemen, and that's when things start to happen."

It is starting to get on my nerves...Darvin has impressed me but, really, Benton has by far the most "potential" and the most talent of any WR on our team.

Blogger James in Auburn said...

About a month ago I refused to drink the Auburn Kool-Aid. The left side of my brain couldn't make the idea of a successful season work logically and the right side of my brain quite working a long time ago...

So for weeks now I've been sitting here staring at the pitcher of Kool-Aid in front of me... refusing to take a drink, pushing it farther and farther away...

Saturday night I drink the whole damn thing.

Apparently I owe Mr. Todd an apology and a very big one at that. Maybe now that my move is complete I'll have the chance to see him around town and do it in person.

Crow taste pretty bad, but the Kool-Aid is making it go down a lot easier...

2:56 PM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

A thought - Our offensive strategy has a LOT to do with tempo. For opposing teams to prepare for us, they will have to practice against this tempo. So either their practice teams can emulate that speed and possibly wear them out before the game OR they can't get to that speed and not be able to keep up later in the game because of that speed.

Suntiger, i agree with you about saturday nite, but that's what Ben's talking about. they're still only 3 games into this new offense. it'll get there. what was really ugly to me on saturday nite was when they slowed the pace down to run the clock in the final minutes. i think that resulted in a big 3 and out.

Yeah, I thought of coming to your defense Hoopie since you are the biggest proponent here of the idea that many average fans are emotional and stupid and the coach should understand anything he says can be used against him strategically or motivationally, but then I got distracted and hey there is a fly in my cubicle that is driving me crazy!

Blogger wtc said...

AU offense was a little slow this past weekend, and didn't run as many plays, but if you recall, the defense returned an interception for a TD, which kept the O off the field and put WVU back on the field. AU also had a few too many 3-outs while WVU converted 66% of 3rd down tries.

3:17 PM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

Ol' Miss will score. How much they score depends on the schizo SC defense. Ol Miss should look at the UGA offensive game plan for clues.

Well it finally quit raining so Coach Superior will probably hit the golf course and not have a good offensive plan. He's milking that deal.

Scottie, I'm not sure how to respond other than the line, "You were serious about dat?!?!" I now know what it feels like to be dumbfounded

From the link:
West Virginia has always been a rowdy school, but this week, our couches should be safe," Wilson said.

Wilson said the problem was blown out of proportion by the media. Many of the students burning couches aren't even from Morgantown.
"But that's the image we have now," he said.

"I think we're moving forward on this problem, but it's something that takes time,"

Unbelievable, I had no idea. I thought it was just one of those fun hillbilly/mountain folk jokes.

I posted this on another forum. I didn't spend too much time on stat sheets but after a cursory glance these are the numbers I came up with:

Noel Devine:

First quarter. 90 yards on 4 carries. .. 22.5 yards / carry.
quarter 2, 3 and 4: 38 yards on 11 carries. 3.5 yards / carry.

Jarrett Brown:

First quarter: 41 yards on 5 carries .. 8 yards / carry.

quarter 2, 3, 4: 25 yards on 14 carries .. 1.8 yards / carry.

One hell of defensive adjustment after 1st quarter I'd say.

Norm - Trooper was mic'd up in pre-game (maybe during the game, too). There are claims that he used the "N" word to fire up the players, Mike McNeil in particular. Even when listening to the tape, it's really hard tell whether he did or not. Finebaum is really stirring the pot on the whole issue. He got someone to come on his show and recommend that Trooper be fired.

Interesting note on Finebaum:

I've mostly followed PF this afternoon. Not suprisingly after the ESPN guy and McNeil denied that the word was said, PF now is no longer leading a charge and is slowly backing out of it. What a chump. Tommorrow he'll cut folks short on it and claim it to be old news.

Any chance for an apology? Of course not. PF would justify that he just "lead the discussion", while ignoring the fact that he controls who talks and how much they get prompted or get to say. Late in the day yesterday, PF mis-quoted the Gump atty to say that Troop "should be fired" instead of "should be fired IF he said it".

Personally, I have no need for Mindbomb. I have in the past attempted to listen to his show, but I just couldn't do it. It is very hard to take it seriously.

EBro -- I always thought Max Howell's show was pretty balanced. It was boring. Maybe someone else could do an exciting and balanced SEC show.

I know what you mean, though. Seems like that would be a hit.

I thought you were very good on their show.

Only one? ONLY ONE? How are you gonna trivialize the best show this side of Dan Lebotard by saying ONLY ONE? No other show is good enough. J Kev do it right.

EBro...An all SEC radio show would be awesome. The challenge would be to get it started without digressing into local rivalry squabbles. ESPN radio could probably pull it off with a southern only syndicated broadcast featuring JGT as host and Tony Barnhart as the color guy/minor antagonist. Call-ins would require screening for substance.

Nice segue and reminder Sensi!

finebomb is a ninny. After trying to start something that did not have legs he will hide behind his mike which he can do easily and not talk about this subject.
Egg on face that does not show on radio.

I do have to say that fancy footwork from the little white guy in navy and maroon striped jersey before he passed it to the little black guy for a tip in was pretty good. I didn't need 90 minuted to see it, though. SC top 10. I win.

7:03 PM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

JHAG...It's about time we got some defensive help. So which one do you think will get in the game first?

7:12 PM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

Digger..PF's minions eat it up. said minions don't possess coherent, cohesive thought processes. He punks 'em regularly and they come back for more.

So why does Hoopie listen? Hoopie normally swings by once a week or when a ready-made PF issue is brewing.

I don't really wanna do WMSP anymore. Kinda down on some of those guys.

I wasn't complaining about the lack of radio exposure. I prefer to get paid for working.

7:26 PM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

I prefer to get paid for not working, but getting paid to work is a close second....



you gotta look at being on the radio and TV as personal branding. Just count what you think you should get paid to appear, write it down, and consider that extra income. Now subtract out that same amount as marketing expense. You just took home the same amount but increased your marketing budget by a ton. When you are hosting PTI or EPL Today, you'll look back and consider it money(time) well spent.

Mytommy- In reference to how i'm handling Tyrik not playing this fall....FANTASTIC, because I thought that if he didn't play then we would be better than anticipated, too which I believe we are. Chris Todd is winning games. I wasn't convinced Auburn could win games and be productive. So it goes. The Rollison Train is parked back at the station and ready to pickup steam again in the spring. I don't buy that Caudle will be ahead of Rollison after the Spring. I would be shocked. Jay G did a great job of predicting Chris Todd along with some guy who coined Toddzilla, I just didn't think his arm was 100% still.

7:40 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

That's brilliant, Frankenbummer.

Blogger Eddie said...

I can definitely see Jay G hosting EPL Today.

7:46 PM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

JGT..I listened to some of the Roundtable today and of course they were discussing the "word". Maybe it because the subject was something that Bags always desires to discuss, the show stayed on point. I generally agreed with Bags today and he can handle that subject well, although Doug is better. I don't agree with Bags propensity on normal days to hijack the conversation to one of the few topics that he can handle.

I was riding in the caboose of the Rollison Express but got off when Todd was named NO. 1 I wasn't too sure about his arm but it seems to be doing great.

7:50 PM

Jay..any truth to the rumors that you are talking to ESPN about their open slot?

7:53 PM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

Okay 2 hours wasn't enough sleep. How I just drove 2 hours to get home and am still capable of halfway coherant thought is beyond me. I gotta be back out the door in 7 hours. Hottie out....oh,and thanks.

7:53 PM  
Blogger diggerforAu said...

Hoopie I know the game PF plays and only the stupidity of his followers keep him on the air. They don't realize, I guess, that he dogs them about 35% of the time.
They just follow along barking.

7:54 PM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

JGT...Tony Barnhart has sortof done what Big Snacks is suggesting and has increased his exposure. If you were allowed to expand your CFB coverage....for...whomever, you could have insight and presentation abilities > TB.

Finebaum couldn't make it if both Alabama and Auburn were great at the same time.

He thrives off of one team being down.

May have missed it, but any discussion on lack of production out of Eltoto? Too much enthusiasim, 100 mph overrunning plays?

True FSJ that is why he is pullig Sh__ out of his boots right now. He can't really dog either one.

AllenD: Josh Bynes said tonight that Eltoro is trying to be "too perfect" and, as a result, is not playing all that well.

I am very much looking forward to Antoine Carter back in the lineup.


Eltoro kept missing the matador Saturday night.

Glad to seem some help coming on board. We can sure use it. They have played well but starting after the Ball State game the compition gets tougher.

Sorry Jay G. I didn't think anything about that. I just thought it was funny off of South Park but I guess I should have thought.

Only one radio show (that I've heard) deserves JGT. Most AL radio guys are lame.

Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

digger, if you look at it like that his poll actually makes some sense. I like that approach to it, as long as he has no problem dropping teams who won, which some pollsters do. For instance, even if Boise continues to win they would drop if teams like LSU and Auburn continued to win, as both of those teams play a higher quality of opponents from here on out.

8:20 PM  
Blogger JD the Biscuitator said...

OMG has anyone looked at the computer polls. It is a shame that these things carry as much weight in the BCS as they do. Jeff Sagrin's poll has Iowa ranked #7 in the country. Pathetic!

8:21 PM

crap digger...look at number 1.....

Sagrin does have Auburn #15, UAT#9, UF #21, Miami #1 and FSU #2
