More Tidbittage for your brain

Hey everyone. What a swell day here in Montgomery, where it's sunny and 72 degrees. I enjoy days like this.

I was in a bit of a hurry last night, so let's take a deeper look at some things that have been said this week.
  • Gus Malzahn on how he's going to improve things: ``Any time you're with a new offense the first year, you're learning them. You're putting in what you think we can do successfully -- what they can do successfully. Each week, you're evolving to how you think the offense should be. To answer the question, yes. The same thing happened the first year at Tulsa and you've just got to make corrections. It's more about us just executing a little bit better."

    ---->HABOTN says: I don't understand all the talk about execution. I know it's important for the coaches to establish, for the players' sake, the belief that execution always is the problem. Yet, honestly, do you believe that? Do you think Chris Todd would pass better if more attention was paid to execution? Would routes be more open?

  • Malzahn on if Auburn's struggles affect him personally: ``It should motivate you. It should motivate all of us to do better. If we're all competitors, that's what I challenge our offense to do. We've got to step up and find a way to help our team win. That's what competitors do. We're looking forward to this next game. We're looking forward to redeeming ourselves and we've got to find a way to do that against a very good defense."

  • Josh Bynes breaking down Saturday's game: ``LSU is going to run the football first. That’s what they’ll try to establish -- and that’s something will try to shut down to be successful. That’s what you’ve seen all year: A lot of teams that have been hanging with LSU have been penetrating their gaps, stopping their runs. The key to the game is to try to let the quarterback beat us."

  • Lee Ziemba on playing at LSU: ``I don't dread it at all. I don't dread anything, going to play anywhere. That was a good game my freshman year (in 2007). I enjoyed playing there in that big stadium as a young'un . It was unfortunate what happened, but we have a good game plan and we want to down there and show that we're a good team. And show that not only can we compete, but we can beat these guys. We know we can beat these guys."

  • Ben Tate on the possibility of a team-wide emotional meltdown: ``This year we’re a lot more together. We’re a family. We believe in each other and we believe in these coaches. I can’t see us having a big collapse and spiraling down and out of control like we did last year. I can’t see that happening."

  • Michael Goggans on the first thing that goes when a player gets tired: ``It does reach a point where you just get very fatigued out there and your body starts to wear down, but it's more of a mind thing. You know you don't very much depth behind you, so you've just got to go in there with that mind-set, that you've got to push through it. We can't use that as an excuse. We've just got to learn to finish."

Regardless of your feelings for Tubs consider that..... Tubs got paid a lot of money to not snitch or talk about the PTB. Why would he risk that?

I concur ... there's just a teensy-weensy corner of the back porch of my brain that worries ... and then I think some more about it and it goes away.

Wasn't that the result of the French Revolution?

Better execution

I'd like to get out to a six touchdown lead.

WOuld any coach come out and just say "We are not very taleneted this year. For whatever reason we have some very good guys on the team, but they are just not that talented. Gives us a couple of years to get a full load of recruits in and we will be much better. Anymore questions? No. Good night!"

Concluded from the report from El Turbo's spanish class:

Chris Todd está bien.

Maybe we should recruit more French Revolutionaries?

My favorite response is "I have no idea." I recommend it for use by coaches whenever appropriate.

It is liberating to admit ignorance.

ElTurbo's Spanish Essay.

Al principio de la temporada, Chris Todd tuvo un brazo fuerte. Hoy, el brazo es muy débil.

Harrison, they had mini-corndogs at the event I went to last night. Coincidence? I don't think so. I think it means that LSU is not operating at full corndog strength.

I should have asked you for a good fart joke. I think I could have gotten away with it.

corndogs and fart jokes. sounds like the kind of classy even I could fit right into

Sí, pero Caudle lanza al otro equipo, Rollison lleva una camisa roja, y Trotter tiene pelo loco.

You guys are really stinkin up the joint today

Google Translate is great. - "Yes, but the other team throws Caudle, Rollison wearing a red shirt, and Trotter has crazy hair."

La situación que entrena en el Colegio de Boston desconcierta.

Harrison, you never know when you will need to know how to say puppet in Spanish. Of course, I took about 7 years of Spanish and never used that word, so you probably don't need to waste any brain cells on it.

THE HABOTN SONG

I traveled the banks of the River of Jordan
to find where it flows to the sea.
I looked in the eyes of the cold and the hungry
and I saw I was looking at me.


I wanted to know if life had a purpose
and what it all means in the end.
In the silence I listened to voices inside me
and they told me again and again.


There is only one river. There is only one sea.
And it flows through you, and it flows through me.
There is only one people. We are one and the same.
We are all one spirit. We are all one name.


We are the father, mother, daughter and son.
From the dawn of creation, we are one.
We are one.

Harrison, when los títeres grab you, you'll wish you spoke Spanish. They really appreciate when you plead for your life in their native language.

I thought we all agreed Safety Dance was the official song. Who Let the Dogs Out is it's backup.
Depth is an issue here

choc- kind of like when the waiters at Mexican restaurants like it when your order in spanish

3:56 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Harrison,

If the Spanish puppets catch you, try this tri-lingual joke:

Cómo se llama un "fart" en alemán?





Farfrompoopin!

4:01 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

So "fart" is "fart" in both languages?
Also translate that joke so i can laugh at it

4:05 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Actually, "fart" in Spanish is "pedo".

How do you say "fart" in German?

Farfrompoopin!

Actually, that's not even that good of a joke in English, but it was the easiest one to translate.

Interesting new thread UPZ.

Haven't seen that in a long time.

Blogger martini35504 said...

Yes, I think execution is an issue. I think penalties committed in the 4th quarter of Kentucky's game come down to discipline and, in a related way, execution. I think receiver's route running involves attention to detail and execution. So yes, execution is an issue. Are some teams simply better than you? Yes. But are Arkansas and Kentucky, no!

10:25 PM  
Blogger Less is More said...

i have read this issue thru my paginas amarillas i guess many people have no idea about this . they must figure this out first before making penalties or desicion
