- 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."
