Blogger chip chip said...

is it just me, or do the players seem confident? it is beginning to seem that they were too preoccupied at times trying to please the previous coaching staff rather than doing what needed to be done on the field. they were worried that if they screwed up once they would get yanked. remember, kenny irons couldn't block worth a crap...he was only the best RB on the team.

OM seems like a mini cadillac (think XLR-V).

Rutgers and Iowa have got to come off...

Cincinatti and Missouri deserve spots. I think FSU stays up there, too, but I don't know who else drops off to fit them, so maybe they don't get back until next week.

It has been a long time since I have seen Auburn players so happy just to be playing. This team has great chemistry going on. I don't have expectation of a west title, but I do believe think this team is going to upset someone.

Good morning to the Hotties! My in-law peeps are gone, so I can play on the computer again.

I still think that the success of our season will be determined by the first 4 games - we have to win all 4 to have a really good year. If we win all 4, we'll go to TN with a national ranking, a boatload of confidence, and a great chance to win the game. Lose just one of those and we are fighting to become bowl eligible.

Jay, assuming AU continues to win, at what point would you rank us on your ballot? By the way, great reports and video.

Good morning Hotties,

I will be doing weekend work from two offices and today's work from two offices today. I think it's UA-T's fault, so I'm hating them extra good today. Y'all have a marvelous Tuesday.

Mr. Tate, I regret that I will be rectangular.

A girl working at the Chik-Fil-A in Chattanooga for the wear your favorite team thing they were doing had a Chris Todd jersey on. I didn't even know they made Todd jerseys.

Wow, life is so good right now. My thoughts about the upcoming football season: stay healthy!! Like Steve I don't think we're in contention for a west title (from what I understand the unmentionables looked very strong as their game went on) but the whole team's attitude is right on, and they seemed very focused, and yeah happy to be playing football. That and great coaching makes for a fun season.

Monica, Re: Chick-Fil-A: I couldn't have said it better myself AND they were giving out free Chikin. Not to mention stores didn't close at six and I was able to sleep in as late as I wanted.

Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

re AU players: They're very confident and relaxed. I haven't seen that from them in a while.

re AP Top 25: I agree that Rutgers needs to come off the ballot. I will add Cincinnati to replace Rutgers. Your other arguments were not sufficiently persuasive.

FSU wasn't on my ballot before and won't be now. Notre Dame wasn't on my ballot before and they're lucky to be at 25 right now.

the FSU/Miami game last nite was fantastic. i was hoping the Noles would pull it out, though.

8:50 AM  
Blogger Scott M. Brannan said...

that's cool JG. i've never seen a voter list like that.

what's the rule on voting in each state, doesn't it rotate every year or several years?

8:53 AM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I was happy for Miami.

I've always liked Miami and their situation at quarterback looked like it would really suck. Then this "J. Harris" cat went off last night and the Hurricanes look good again.

8:54 AM

In Alabama, we rotate the two ballots.

I last voted in 2005.

i was REALLY surprised on Jacory's play last nite. i wasn't impressed early. it looked like he kept jumping when he threw or throwing off his back foot. he was a stud in the 2nd half, though.

I didn't realize until 1 a.m. that the Fortson playing for FSU was the Fortson who committed to Auburn once upon a time. How about that?

Harris made a really really nice throw to get them down to the 2 yard line to set up the winning TD last night.

8:57 AM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I had Ohio State at 7 in the preseason.

8:57 AM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

I don't think you penalize Ohio State, also considering OU lost and dropped out of the top ten, you also don't move Ohio State up. We find out who's the real deal this weekend.

For all interested, Carnell "Cadillac" Williams has regained the starting job for Tampa Bay.

9:11 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Navy is a good team and they are tough to defend, but it seems Ohio State is the master of just getting by.

I guess that does say something though.

Here's to Carnell having an injury free rest of his career.

Blogger Eddie McCoy said...

Not a bad ballot, but a couple of question marks to me, Georgia at #18 over Georgia Tech? This team has Auburn 2008 written all over them. Also, Iowa continues to be the most overrated team with definitely the most over-rated and over-paid coach of all time, but I know that they can improve on that showing. My biggest question is Georgia in general, I think they are a .500 team at best. Voting publicly sucks, but i'm glad that the AP voters are known unlike the scared coaches.

9:15 AM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I had UGA at 13 in the preseason poll.

I think a five-point drop is reasonable given they lost on the road (and played pretty well) against a very good, top-10 team.

AP says the new poll will drop "in the afternoon."

Do you vote for the teams based on how they played, or on how good(or not-so-good) you think they really are?

FAH returned one in the 2nd half i recall.

9:23 AM  
Blogger dan dan the AU fan said...

Thanks. I agree with Eddie...and Jay G. I think they started out a tad overrated and will eventually drop out of the top 25.

9:26 AM  
Blogger AUfan said...

Fannin is one of the kick-returners.

9:27 AM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

The polls usually shake out in the first 3-4 weeks. Remember how we were in the top ten at this time last year?

9:28 AM  
Blogger AUBigCat said...

Fortson is turning out to be a pretty good WR. I hate we missed out on him. I'm hoping Shaun Kitchens (WR commit) will be just as good since their measurables are about the same.

Miami/FSU was much better than I thought. I was pulling for Miami. That QB has ice water in his veins. He showed absolutely no emotion even on the last play of the game.

I think we go 4-0. But I want our LBs and CBs to really hit people. I mean solid, straight up, stop you in your tracks and push you backwards type hitting. Especially when they are one on one.

9:33 AM  
Blogger Eddie McCoy said...

Jay G- That makes sense if you had them at #13, I can buy that. No love for Georgia Tech who returned a lot more players than Georgia and beat Georgia on the road?

9:35 AM  
Blogger dan dan the AU fan said...

Since it will be one of the two most hyped games this week, what are opinions on USC/OSU? I think its a toss up.

9:54 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

I think USC wins. From the 800 times I saw it on ESPN, I know they have a true freshman QB. However, I think their D is good enough to overcome any freshman mistakes Barkley makes.

I'll say USC 28 OSU 20.

9:57 AM  
Blogger Eddie McCoy said...

I like USC also, they just have confidence, more so than OSU. Pete Carrol does a really good job of getting his team up for the big games, and I think this will be no exception. I like the USC winning by 10+.

9:59 AM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

I'll play devil's advocate and take tOSU @ home. Tough game to win when an tOSU defense stacks the box and makes the frosh QB make tough throws.

10:06 AM

Speaking of hype, what about the "Why in the hell did we hire this guy Bowl", Michigan vs Notre Dame?

Thought for today: Remember if you can't be big and strong be FAH!!!

"I'm coming at ya!" i love that quote!

10:20 AM  
Blogger AUBigCat said...

I'd take USC in a blowout. tOSU didnt look very good against Navy and Lou Holtz made a great point. You schedule Navy and that option offense as an opener and devote alot of those preseason practices to it. That time gets wasted cause you wont see an offense like that again and you cant really build on what you learned. Advantage USC.. as if they needed any more advantages.

10:24 AM

Mobliz how about the commentary for the 93 yarder

"Todd!!...has a man open!!...Zachery!!....does he have the speed??.........Good Enough, Touchdown Auburn!!!"

That's my quote of the game.

When I got home from the game, I cranked up the DVR to see the play.

I preferred Brock Huard's rather understated color commentary on the play when he saw the defenders take the bait.

I am not sure how Ole Nutt ended up 6th. I think I would have pushed them out of the top 10. They didn't look like a polished team. Their score ended up looking good, but how they got there wasn't pretty.
