The First Official HABOTN Poll

**Due to a family commitment, I will not be available for Thursday Night Live tomorrow. To make up for that egregious breach, I will participate in an event of your choosing Thursday afternoon.

Whatever we do, festivities will begin at 2 p.m. CDT.

News of Note:

Aubrey Phillips has withdrawn from school and is headed home due to medical reason. - I doubt this kid will ever play from what i've heard. Sad situation, but I don't think he can risk it. Hopefully i'm wrong.

PPL- Will work with the offense and will probably play WR this week.

Chizik- According to rivals, Chizik said they had a physical week of practice and rolled the dice by doing so and it paid off. - I like it.

6:54 PM

I forgot to mention that the above was on rivals, sorry.

PPL at WR. We don't need no stikin WR. We need linebackers!!

We were talking about Aubrey Phillips yesterday.

I don't think he was right at any point during his time at Auburn.

PPL: The Most Overrated Auburn Player I've Never Seen.

Eddie failed to mention that PPL is also going to play linebacker. Remember, AU likes its LB's small and fast.

I agree about PPL at WR, i really just wanted him at Punt Returner and wouldn't mind seeing him at Kick Returner.

Is Blake and Benton still playing for the Tigers??? So much for hyping the freshman WR's. Maybe they will come thru soon.

Is PPL even 100% yet? Considering the knee injury, I hope the best is yet to come with that guy.

7:08 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

ehyou - I had an AU cowboy hat like that in 8th or 9th grade. The only better AU lids were the orange and blue pimp hats my brother and I had in the 70's.

7:09 PM

Of course, that's not counting Scottie B's HABOTN caps.

7:10 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Everytime I see a cowboy hat I think of one of my friend's bachelor parties in New Orleans.

We lost a member of our party that night on Bourbon Street. Walking back to the room much much later we found him passed out on a bench with a cowboy hat on and a feather boa.

Have no idea where he got either.

7:11 PM  
Blogger Eddie McCoy said...

FSJ- I can only imagine the hard time your friend endured.

7:13 PM

Yeah, that's right. Turd Ferguson. It's a funny name.

7:13 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

There is far far more talk about PPL than there was about Jerald Watson.

Teach him to tackle and use PPL as a blitzing LB, he should be able to get to the QB. 170 pound LB would be the talk of the college football world.

7:16 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

That's a big hat, it's funny.

y'all may have already reported this, haven't had time to read every single post (but did read most of them), but D&B is reporting Eltoro expected to play against KY.

7:22 PM

Eltero playing will be nice for depth. Hopefully he will get his act together.

Who is D&B?

7:40 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

Byrum supposedlysprained his ankle by stepping in a hole, this week. he has been wearing a protective boot just as a precaution. he will play Saturday. he is OK, just do not want to injure it further

7:46 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

Just reporting from a text message I received from them. They are usually pretty careful about putting anything out there unless they are pretty confident. But, take it with a grain of salt.

D& B is Dunaway & Brown radio show in B'ham. Dunaway also does CBS news (sports)

7:48 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

They were also reporting Aubrey Phillips withdrawal.

Dunaway is a good guy..

A bammer but a good guy...

8:11 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

He is a bammer and he admits it, but I think he reports pretty fairly. He isn't afraid to call bama down on something or to give props to AU when they deserve it. And Brown is a good Auburn man.

Choco Scottie,

I think I have a pic of you in the ginormous orange hat from 9th grade. I'd be happy to post it if you'd like. You may or may not have been wearing a Bubba Bean sticker at the time.

George Washington crossed the Delaware and suffered with his men at a bitter Valley Forge. Andrew Jackson fought the bloody British at New Orleans. Brother fought brother at Manassas, Antietam and Gettyburg. Men died in trenches in Europe, and on the beaches of Normandy and on islands in the Pacific. They bled in Korea and Vietnam. And men and women served in the Persian Gulf, and serve again today in Iraq and Afghanistan.

All for the right to vote. HOTTIES, it's your civic duty.

During the Arky long kick return I commented that we were in our lanes and seemed schemed/coached correctly. According to Andy Bitter, Boulware says that we had 7walkons on the field. Here's a paste.

On Arkansas' long kick return last week, Boulware said the team had seven walk-ons on the field. "The thing that stood out to us the most was that we didn’t have anybody make a play," he said. "We forced them to change directions three or four times, but nobody wanted to go get him. Everybody was kind of passive. We didn’t make a play. We have to make a play. We have to teach our guys to make a play."

Hoop ...

Looked like we had 3 guys around him at the 20 or so ... he gave a little wiggle, and they all fell down as if he had busted out the sleepy gas on them.

9:41 PM  
Blogger Jet said...

Please note that Morgan Hull had two tackles on Saturday -- two more than Antonio Coleman.

9:42 PM  
Blogger Fearless Freep said...

I think it's a little early in PPL's career to call him 'overrated'. Officially, he's still only halfway through his Freshman year.

Bitter's blog entry illustrates it perfectly - our special teams problems are almost 100% due to depth. Maybe we should try the TAMU "12th Man" thing that Jackie Sherrill used and get a bunch of intramural guys who's only job is to knock down kick returners.

9:43 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

I agree. Do the Hanson brothers from Slap Shot have eligibility remaining? They'd be ideal.

9:52 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

That kick return was frustrating to watch because we had him and momentum, then he got by and took the momentum with him.

9:53 PM

Tulsa cut it to within 7.

The only thing that stinks is that Bama and Auburn are essentially playing at the same time.......again.

10:27 PM

FSJ, its clear which one you will be watching. Go Tigers.

10:28 PM

True..but I prefer to watch both.

Auburn is the only other SEC team that I watch the entire game if they are playing..

Well, not sadly. Stewardess has a band competition ... so I will watch her, then drive back to the house quickly to watch the game.

For thise that care, I heard something interesting that I thought I would share. It involves recuiting so skip this if you do not care:

Supposedly this staff has already gotten assurances from the guys they want for 2010 and this class is now full. They are working on keeping them in the fold and have been working for 2011. this staff feels great about the class they have assembled and while they feel they will not be surprised in February, many around the country will be.
(Yes I do know these are 18 year old kids and can change their minds. This staff just thinks they will not)

That is all.

Time to get a roof liner repaired.

I like the sound of that. However, not being a recruiting fan I always take the wait and see approach.

"Time to get a roof liner repaired."

Does that have anything to do with our defensive coordinator?

Maybe once you get your roof liner repaired then our D under Ted Roof will improve as well.

Re: the voting map:

Okay, I can probably guess most of those (Jackson is Jkev, Ft. Lauderdale is Jhag...), but we have hotties in Kansas? That's like being on a random lake in Alaska when suddenly, a plane with an Auburn flag lands beside you...

What do you think of the DL recruits for 2010? All of the talk about the LB position has somewhat taken away from the point that the DL is not as strong it has been in the past.

Blogger michael said...

My issue with the alternate chat format is this: How is it any different than posting in the threads? Jay, why not just say you will be in threadland answering questions at 2:00 this afternoon? Because if it is like the UK chat, the live chat is basically like the comments section but without the cross chatter between Hotties.

8:07 AM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

missinit ... if you click on the "view results" ... then click on the "0" after comments ... you'll see the map.

That's not everyone because we had three voters from LA yesterday afternoon who apparently disappeared.
