"Late" Night Chatter

Hey everyone. Evening interviews have ended. Here's the poop.

THE FIVE THINGS
  • Gus Malzahn is not anxious about going back to northwest Arkansas: ``I got a chance last year to do that (with Tulsa), so I felt that and all the distractions that come with that with friends and family asking for this and that. This is more of a business trip and the fact that I had that experience last year I think will definitely help this year."

  • Malzahn on Auburn's need to beef up red-zone production after problems at Tennessee: ``I think it's what you focus on and we need to work that much harder. We had a couple opportunities and we're very fortunate our defense was playing extremely well. We've got to find a way to score touchdowns. It was great to get some points, our kicker did a wonderful job, but as an offense we've got to find a way to score touchdowns when our defense gives us opportunities."

  • K Wes Byrum on his 2008 struggles: ``There wasn't really a low point, it was just after missing a couple, it just got tough. Overall, the team wasn't doing well and I wasn't helping at all on my end of it by putting points up on the board when we were struggling. It just got really tough as the season went on to keep missing as we were all struggling as a team."

  • Kodi Burns on last season's loss against Arkansas, which was the first without Tony Franklin: ``The whole year was a disappointment. That game in particular, we had several opportunities to get in the end zone and for whatever reason it didn't happen. That just showed the turmoil and the stress the whole team was under. We couldn't even score on four downs from the 3-yard line. We have another chance this year. Everybody is excited about that."

  • Mario Fannin on Malzahn's attitude this week: ``He's more intense. He's more energetic, and you can tell it's a matter of he wants everything to be perfect. So we understand that and we've got some guys from Arkansas."


BONUS QUOTE
  • Malzahn, who was jazzed about the team's last Tuesday practice, on today's workout: ``It probably wasn’t up to what last week was. We’ve got to come out tomorrow and Thursday and really focus in. At the same time, we threw a lot at them. Arkansas gives you a lot of different looks and we want to make sure we’re prepared."

Nice, Ham.

Welcome.

8:22 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Welcome Ham!

8:22 PM  
Blogger HamTiger said...

Thanks FSJ... I have to say that I don't care much for Bama but I come from a long line of Bammers... that includes parents, grandparents, etc. I clearly made the right choice for an institution of higher learning.

8:24 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

There's a bad rumor on this blog that I am a closet Auburn fan...That is totally not true.

8:25 PM  
Blogger HamTiger said...

Thanks everyone. Good to have finally broken through the silence barrier

8:25 PM  
Blogger HamTiger said...

It doesn't show by the absurd amount of time you spend on here. Are you an active participant on any Bama sites?

8:26 PM

I'm a member of Tiderinsider and a mixed school board.

i figure we've got a several Arkansas born players to keep everyone focused this week. i think that helps....why, i have no clue. but it sounds good.

8:28 PM  
Blogger Craig Miller said...

i'm not behaving myself as usual Kristina. ha ha. Just watching my drunken hero Tony Franklin have that same "look" we saw last year.

8:29 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

We have such magnetic people on this blog - FSJ can't help himself.

8:29 PM  
Blogger HamTiger said...

Nice...has to be hard to keep up. Does anyone have any tips on keeping the thread current without having to refresh constantly? Sorry, fairly new to the posting part.

8:30 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

So far Tony Franklin don't impress me much.

8:30 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

No, Ham, but if you figure out how to do that, let me know.

8:31 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Ham- F5

8:31 PM  
Blogger scottie b defeated UT said...

cincy & Shania Twain have something in common, eh?

sorry, i couldn't help it. :)

8:31 PM  
Blogger Kristina said...

Of course you aren't, Craig.

8:32 PM  
Blogger HamTiger said...

Thanks Eddie, any way to keep it from automatically resetting to the top of the thread when it refreshes?

8:32 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

Ham,
In what part of Birmingham are you located?

8:35 PM  
Blogger Kristina said...

Use Google Chrome for your browser, Ham.

8:35 PM  
Blogger scottie b defeated UT said...

Google Chrome makes me happy. IE, not so much.

8:36 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Ham- No Dice there.

Everyone- About time to get on Sensi if you want to, we are about to talk about the rest of the season and Jay's negatism. Call in at 646-649-1890 if you want to disagree.

8:36 PM  
Blogger HamTiger said...

I am in Homewood. I use Firefox... guess I need to check out G Chrome. I feel like Google is taking over my digital life.

8:37 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

Ham,
I use Safari and when I refresh it stays at the same place I was on the page. I keep it on the last post and when I refresh it goes back there and I can see what new has posted.

8:39 PM  
Blogger Kristina said...

That's what Chrome does too, Cincy.

8:40 PM  
Blogger HamTiger said...

I need a Mac, Cincy. My iphone has convinced me that Apple products work, and work well.

8:41 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Steve- Giving Jay Hell!!!!!

Love It.

8:43 PM

Interviewed Petrino on ESPN2 at halftime.

Off topic-I'm looking for a zero turn mower (used if possible). Anyone have one they are looking to get rid of?

8:46 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

My son convinced me to buy a Mac earlier this year and I LOVE it. I will never go back to a PC if I can help it.

8:49 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

Kristina,
Did you have an awesome time at the TN game? It sounded like so much fun.

8:50 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

Anybody know anything about the Comfort Inn & Suites in Slidell?

8:51 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Ham...go Mac and never go back.

8:51 PM  
Blogger Kristina said...

I had a fantastic time at the Tennessee game, Cincy. Scottie B definitely hooked us up! Glad we won my first away game!

8:52 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Kathy..I've stayed in Slidell before for a football game but don't remember where.

We usually stay in New Orleans at the Wyndham on Canal.

8:52 PM  
Blogger HamTiger said...

What are the odds that Tony the Angry Drunken OC doubles his production in the second half to end with 0 points?

8:53 PM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

Sensi, I didn't mean what I said.

8:55 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

Nice show guys.

Good call Steve.

9:00 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Sensi- is an idiot :)!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks Peter!!!

9:00 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

PF, I was with you. We went more in depth on how Sensi has lost his mind:)

9:00 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Man, is Sensi even online to defend himself, or is this a behind the back beat down?

9:02 PM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

I had to hang up 20 minutes in. I'll go back and podcast it. I wanted to be able to come back on and talk about Arkansas. I have opinions. Oh well.

9:02 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

I'm distracting him on the phone. Let the beat down of Sensi continue!

9:03 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Peter- I'm sorry man, I didn't realize that. Blame me on that. I would have put you back on for sure.

9:03 PM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

By not meaning what I said, I was lying about the part where I said I had nothing to back it up. I thought it would be more effective if I kept it simple. You can't argue with simple.

9:04 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

This is definitely going to be an interesting game because Arkansas' offense will test us in a different way than anyone has yet. I guess WV was the closest, but my gut tell me if you got a guy named Chizik on your staff and you have a one dimensional offense, you got problems.

9:04 PM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

No Eddie, I wanted to wait until you got to that part of the show. I planned on going back in the waiting area, but ended up having to hang up to dodge the pigs. Beat Arkansas.

9:06 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Tiny bubbles.... Man, this watching the Franklin System operate is getting me a bit misty.

9:06 PM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

Sensi, I'm just messing. You're a good bammer witch. I'm glad we're facebook friends.

9:07 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

Anybody else smellin' bacon?

9:08 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

I expected us to be talking about if Ole Miss could upset Bama this weekend, but with the way Elroy has played, Bama looks to be better than last season. Ole Nutt is going to have issues.

9:08 PM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

Definitely not Kosher. Destroy the pigs.

9:08 PM  
Blogger AUNugget said...

Can i listen to yall online Eddie?

is there a link?

Evenin everyone.

9:09 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

I do believe whoever wins the west will win the SEC, and that is likely Bama. Florida is too one dimensional and that Bama will beat Tebow up so much he will be looking for his little dog Toto before the game is over. Yea, okay, I am looking ahead a bit.

9:10 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

AuNug...
Click on eddie's profile and there's a link to Insider. There will be a podcast.

9:11 PM

AUNugget, click on Eddie's avatar and go to his blog. You will find all the links you need there.

9:11 PM  
Blogger AUNugget said...

Thanks ehyou

9:11 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Man, my Franklavision seems to be a bit fuzzy tonight. Where is the offense?

9:13 PM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

I actually had my first tinge of sympathy for Tebow. I see him coming back too soon and getting knocked the eff out against LSU. That could change that kid's life. I still hate him, though.

9:13 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

They are showing a picture of the MTSU head coach and he keeps glancing over at someone. This is about the time Franklin was fired last season. Could lightening strike twice?

9:14 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Aunugget-

Do as other's suggested or:

download Itunes.

VIDEO IS UPPPPPZ.

9:15 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

I don't look for Tebow to play against LSU. That was a serious concussion he got against Kentucky. If he doesn't want to spend the rest of his life eating fruit loops and watching the disney channel, he needs to take some time off.

9:16 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Good night Hotties. Thanks for listening. Hope to get back in my HABOTN grove tomorrow. Dang work trying to interfer with it. Just give me the pay check.

9:17 PM  
Blogger Brother Jet said...

Stuck in West Gomorrah ... had a decidedly mediocre meal at Tha Universitah Club.

Everyone of the Bammers spoke highly of Sensi. Only one conclusion possible.

Sorry, Sensi.

9:18 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Steve..

What is wrong with Fruit Loops and Disney?

9:19 PM  
Blogger HamTiger said...

Doh, they scored.

9:29 PM  
Blogger Phormerly Phred said...

Steve ... translate your 9:04 comment for me. I didn't quite follow you.

In other news, I think tonights showing should end this ridiculous CTF debate.

9:34 PM  
Blogger Sensi said...

Just got back in, gang. Thanks for being good sports.

10:54 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

PP, I was saying Chiz could stop the run. As for tonight, you saw the Tony Franklin System against the Tony Franklin System and somehow came to a conclusion?

Sensi, always here for you:)
