I heard the Tuberville stuff, too, and there is just no way that's right.

It's out of character, first of all. Secondly, Tuberville technically is working for Auburn right this very minute. Thirdly, he is seeking employment as a head coach and snitching is not a preferred method of getting a job.

I don't buy that for a second.

I just read in the last post that Kentucky used magic to make us miss tackles. Someone should report this to the commissioner or something. I am pretty sure that is illegal. Somewhere in the SEC bylaws it says we can burn the Kentucky running backs at the stake.

Eddie-I heard C Grant, the RB from Opelika, was at the game this weekend. That would mean he has been to every AU home game. He even missed HC in Ttown. Not saying anything is up, but do you or anyone else find that odd?

Interesting thing is that some folks on TI aren't worried about Grant....If he's been to AU that many times for games this season that would make you wonder.

I have no recruiting info, but one of the Rivals guys(Matthews?) was on Sportscall last week, and someone asked the same question regarding Grant.

He thinks Grant is still solid to Bama.

I think Grant is till solid to UAT, but it is just interesting that he shows up over there. Personally I think they allow him to come in thinking he may give them another look. I would just suspect the staff at UAT is not pleased with, according to how I have heard they like to button everything down. (Once you commit to UAT you are ours. if you look elsewhere, we look elsewhere)

WTC- I was commenting on that after the Ball State game about Corey Grant. The fact that he comes to every game instead of traveling up to see "his" team is very odd. Most seem to think he is solid to bama, which he probably is, but it leaves one thinking what is up. I do find that interesting.

I saw Grant at a Tiger Walk hanging with some friends. I think he's just looking for something to do in his home town, and that's what he says. IMHO Bama would be the last place I'd go as a top RB - lot's of pine time coming.

I couldn't get the video to work tonight; having all sorts of computer problems. But I'm sure it was good.

Eddie, Sensi, and EBro - Enjoyed being on the show again. Jay G. picking Auburn has lifted my spirits and made me think we have a chance Sat nite. If Todd's arm is at 90%, we win. If we lose, I can always say his arm was only 50%, so this is a sure way to make a prediction and be right.

11:34 PM  
Blogger Unknown said...

Just listened to Auburn Insider. The starting two linebackers we have are solid, although certainly not stars.

I hope that the coaches have the guts to say, Todd, it is time to take a rest. If not, we could be looking at a 2008 sequel.

I do disagree that Todd is the sole problem. The lack of motion, possibly due to the FAH injury on the unpunt, may have contributed to that. Also, we haven't seen Fannin involved. Lately we have been gone away from the Malzahn offense and went to the Ben Tate offense.

We do have talent. It bothers me to here people knock our players. We just lack depth.

On the defensive line, we are pretty solid, but lack the star power we have become accustom to. Coleman is good but not having a star tackle to go with him has hurt.

As for LSU, I believe the Jefferson Heisman campaign kicks off Saturday night in Baton Rouge.

Is the problem the arm or the routes?

I wonder if we are trying too much deep throw stuff. Maybe some of those crossing routes which are so effective against the defense could be utilized.

What is all the Tubs/Finebaum stuff about?

8:57 AM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

The Tuberville thing: Think about it before you believe it. Tuberville is trying to get back into coaching. Snitching prevents anyone from getting back into (or staying in) coaching.

Think about it.

Steve, thanks for listening to the podcast. I thought we tried to be fair to Todd, saying that it's certainly not all his fault. I've emphasized since Saturday that I thought we still should have won that game despite Todd's woes (alas the penalties).

Sorry if it sounded like we were picking on players. Wasn't our intent. We just try to run a fun fan's show that at times becomes irreverent.

Here's your mystery stat comparison of the day:

Team A through 7 games (5-2, 3-2 SEC):
Starting QB - 111-183-2 1337 yds 9 TDs
#1 Receiver - 26 rec 309 yds 2 TDs
#1 Rusher - 174 att 875 yds 5.0 ypa 8 TDs

Team 2 through 7 games (5-2, 2-2 SEC):
Starting QB - 106-190-2 1443 yds 12 TDs
#1 Receiver - 28 rec 444 yds 5 TDs
#1 Rusher - 150 att 856 yds 5.7 ypa 5 TDs

Obviously, one of the above teams is the 2009 Auburn Tigers.

The other may surprise you (hint: it's an AU team from the current decade).

9:18 AM  
Blogger Fearless Freep said...

Agree with JGT.

Why do you think it took Terry Bowden more than a decade to get back into coaching at any level? And his accusations remain officially "off the record".

Now, if Tubs decided he liked retirement (which I sincerely believe is a distinct possibility) he might want to stir up some stuff. . .

I'd say South Carolina but for the rushing statistics, plus, that's the only other 5-2 team.

Oops, spoke too soon. You are correct.

Was anyone else surprised to learn that Ben Tate's rushing numbers are as good as Rudi's through his first 7 games?

And that Ben Leard and Chris Todd were almost identicaly statistically at this point in their SR seasons?

9:24 AM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

FF, I'm hoping we follow the lead of the 2000 team by winning the first five, losing the next two, then winning the next four, except that we don't also lose the last two (SEC Title game and Citrus Bowl).

9:27 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

How do the defensive #'s match up?

9:29 AM  
Blogger Fearless Freep said...

There were significant differences, of course. For example, the rest of the 2000 RBs had <150 yards combined. FAH has 461 by himself, despite virtually disappearing in the last couple of games.

Plus there were 5 WRs in '00 who had 10 or more catches through the first 7 games, while only 3 can make that claim this year (and that includes Fannin).

We tend to remember that season's offense as being all Rudi, all the time. Not quite the case.

I know we gave up our share of points in 2000, but how do the D numbers match up?

9:34 AM  
Blogger Jet said...

A major distinction is that Mississippi State and Florida were both ranked at the time. Florida ended up being the SEC champion.

I don't see Arkansas or Kentucky being the SEC champion, and I certainly don't Kentucky being anywhere near the top 25 at the end of the season. Arkansas may have difficulty getting there, too.

This team is in a lot more world of hurt than the 2000 squad.

We're just gonna have to deal with it until we can recruit some more talent.

9:40 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Against Miss State in 2000 we didn't get a 1st down until deep into the 3rd quarter.

That was a tough game to watch.

9:41 AM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

RK, it was amazing we only lost that game 17-10. We got whooped that day.

9:42 AM  
Blogger Fearless Freep said...

As you might imagine, the comparative defensive numbers are pretty one-sided. Although probably not as bad as you think.

AU 2000 defense through 7 games:
288.3 ypg, 19.1 ppg

AU 2009 defense through 7 games:
367.6 ypg, 26.3 ppg

Here's the key stat: through the entire 2000 season, AU held almost a 5 minute TOP advantage over its opponents (32:19 vs 27:41).

Thus far this year, its almost exactly the opposite: 27:49 vs 32.11.

I imagine that 9-minute swing in TOP may partially account for the 80 yards and 7 points per game difference.

9:42 AM  
Blogger Fearless Freep said...

Jet's right, in that our early season schedule was much tougher that year.

Amongst the teams we beat were Ole Miss and LSU, both of whom were ranked during parts of that season. Both of whom also did something we couldn't do - beat MSU.

I just thought it was interesting to see the two side-by-side. As I recall I was a lot more optimistic about the rest of the season in '00 than I am now - even though we would have fallen apart if we'd lost Rudi for any significant time.

I don't even want to think about where we would be if Ben missed a game or three. . .

9:47 AM  
Blogger Fearless Freep said...

And I'd be lying if I didn't admit that a big part of my optimism in 2000 had to do with the sudden decline and collapse of the DuBose Era occurring across the state.

I'll take Thomas, Lincoln, Pounds, Callier & Brown over any LB we have on the field this year.

That was bad, they tried the "Who Let the Dogs Out" stuff in 2002 at their place too.

That was the year they assigned the Auburn band to sit in the upper deck. At the end of the game as the band made it's way down the spiral they were chanting "Who Shut The Dogs Up".

I just remember from the 2000 MSU team Fred Smoot had his on webpage where he talked trash about other teams and players.

One question that's been nagging me since the beginning of the year: Why hasn't Ben Tate gotten any press concerning any Heisman potential? Here we have a stud of a running back averaging 5.7 yards per touch who just passed Stephen Davis at #5 on the career rushing yards list for Auburn running backs (Ben is at 2815, Davis at 2811).

He's now only 144 yards away from a "thousand yard" season and still might climb higher into the rarified air of the top Auburn running backs of all time. He's unlikely to catch Bo or Cadillac in total yards, but he's well within the reach of the marks set by Joe Cribbs (553 yards) and could even surpass James Brooks (708 yards) with 5 or potentially 6 games to go.

If so, he would be the #3 Auburn running back of all time. Just wondering why he's not at least a dark horse candidate.

"Candidate Tate" is a least credible and sounds a lot better than that "Eric Berry for heisman" foolishness.


12:01 PM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

But ya see Sullivan Eric Berry is scary

12:07 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Good question, Sullivan. I think the answer is that there's only room for praise for one RB from the state, and some Sophomore in the land of Evil is getting a ton of press right now.

12:09 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Maybe different if we're 6-1 and definitely if we're 7-0. Tebow seems to be the only Heisman winner this decade (that I can think of) who had more than one or two losses with his team. Reggie Bush is the only RB to win it this decade.

12:14 PM  
Blogger Eddie McCoy said...

Sullivan- If this team was undefeated, he would be mentioned, IMO, but to win the heisman these days, you have to be on big name teams due to TV coverage or ESPN. The days of hte Hesiman meaning something are gone IMO.
