Thoughts on the depth chart

Hey everyone. I said earlier that there were items to discuss regarding the depth chart. Let's do it.
  1. Hot Carter not in the picture: I thought he seemed healthy last time I saw him on a practice field, so I'm not sure what to make of this. Chizik was asked about Carter and I found his answer intriguing:
    Again, I don’t go into the injury situation, but right now, we don’t anticipate him playing on Saturday.”
    Notice that he doesn't say it's an injury situation. Those are two separate statements.

  2. Dee Ford as a backup: It's a misnomer. Sure, Ford technically is Antonio Coleman's backup. When Coleman comes off the field, though, don't look for Ford unless it's third-and-long. I think Zach Clayton and/or Nick Fairley will play that spot before Ford's name is discussed.

  3. DeAngelo Benton as a backup: Not exactly. The depth chart presented below is based on a two-receiver set. That won't happen very often. When Auburn uses three wides, Benton will be in the game.

  4. The second-tier linebackers: Ouch. I don't think Jonathan Evans is healthy. Harris Gaston is another freshman who missed time with an injury. Adam Herring practiced last week for the first time since November. I can't imagine Ted Roof feeling good about the situation here.

  5. Eltoro Freeman: Is he ready to play at an acceptable level? We're supposed to talk with him tonight. I'll report back.


UNRELATED NOTE: I saw Eric Smith in front of the Athletic Complex this afternoon. He seemed in good spirits. Same for Aubrey Phillips.

About the South Florida discussion on the previous thread... we put those guys on the college football map.

They got so much credibility by beating us it was amazing. I think they even got up to # 2 before coming crashing down to earth.

It was a lot like Vandy last year. They beat us, but it was obvious they weren't a good team, but since people thought we were a good team at the time it built them up.

rk - Auburn is kind of like that popular girl in high school, and when someone dated her you were like, "Wow, I can't believe that guy is dating her! Mad respect for him!" But then it turns out 15 years later that the girl is single and leather skinned from cigarettes and living in a hell hole with 4 kids. All of a sudden you aren't so impressed with those guys dating her in high school.

I'm more excited about the Beatles finally getting their albums remastered, although I do feel like a dunce to say that excites me even though I never noticed my CDs were poor quality to begin with. I hate it when the internet tells me I didn't like the stuff I have been listening to because it is crap. I feel so deceived.

Yeah, sorry about that, Harrison. It's just that I was watching this movie called Minority Report on TNT a couple of weeks ago, and it taught me that the truth matters and the end doesn't justify the means, and I just couldn't let you go through life feeling like you were important when in fact you are the opposite.

McFadden was being rhetorical in my opinion. He wasn't guaranteeing a 12-0 season ... though apparently some people see it that way. He was saying that he goes into the season expecting to win every game.

I go into every Call of Duty game expecting to win. I only win 60% of them. So it goes.

Of the 50 players on the depth chart ...

17 are first-year players (true freshman, redshirt freshman or juco transfer).

2 others are walk-ons.

2 others are players playing vastly different positions from last year.

Invisible players: Q. Carr, A. "H" Carter, M. Billings, E. Smith, P. Pierre-Louis.

Granted, there are reasons why some aren't visible, but I wonder where they fit in anyway. Note that three are in Trooper's care.

Funny y'all should be talking about DirecTv. I have spent the past 20 minutes or so contemplating (again) the switch from cable. But now y'all have me confused.

One of the things I hate about TWC is that it doesn't carry CSS, and likely never will. Why does CSS expect everyone to move to a tiny part of the country just to get that station?

And does SportSouth (the former Turner South, not the original SportSouth which is now Fox Sport South) have any useful Auburn/SEC programming?

OT, and let me preface by saying I love my Mac, but the new upgrade from Leopard to Snow Leopard is totally not worth $29. It should have been a freebie. Also found out, after we spent the money for the box set, that the $29 version is the complete system. So if you are upgrading from Tiger to Snow Leopard, which we were on my daughter's Mac, you can do it with the cheaper version. We did get the new iWorks and iLife with the box set. Haven't had a chance to do too much with it yet.

I sure hope you're right SFC. But last year at this time a lot of folks, probably me, were thinking we'd have 7 TD in the first SEC game.

ok... i may have to make an ice cream run myself... we're fresh out!

I have not seen the questionable comments this season, like we saw last season. My big concern this year is there are too many positive comments.

Blogger Earl said...

ok the average of all the picks so far is AU 32.7778 - La Tech 16.2222. Sound reasonable?

this week Harris Teeter had some ridiculous ice cream special on Breyer's. I think it was buy 2 get 3 free.

Sounds good to me, I'll take it.

I prefer the coaches to talk up the opponents and have our players thinking they will be lucky to beat whoever we play. This season the players are convinced we will be good.

My best friend from Cincinnati shipped me 6 pints of Graeter's ice cream in dry ice for my birthday. Life is soooooo good!

I am convinced we could be good if we stay healthy.

This ice cream talk is getting to me. Is anyone else on here diabetic?

Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla with Hershey's Syrup.

It ain't alot of fun, believe me.

Blue Bell... Jet really knows how to make his neighbor struggle with the 10th commandment. I think Blue Bell was mentioned in there somewhere.

8:54 PM  
Blogger Sean said...

Bluebell makes a flavor called Southern Style Blackberry Cobbler that is absolutely amazing. I highly recommend it.

Believe me when I disagree and say Chocolate Slap from Jake's in ATL is the best ice cream ever!!

8:57 PM  
Blogger IV said...

I think that THT and some of you other guys need to start going to ICA, ice cream anonymous.

8:57 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

no way, that's too expensive. MrsTHT isn't going to waste money for someone else to peel the shrimp.

Monica has us just under the spread...I asked a completely non biased guy at work (Michigan State guy) and he thinks we blow the doors off of LA Tech.

We have a 220 pound second string defensive end. That is scary.

ah, china. One of MrsTHT's vices. My dad, who loved MrsTHT like his own daughter, once said to her, "I don't think you've met a plate you didn't like."
