BLAWGIN' FER YER NOGGIN: Gene Chizik speaks again

Hey everyone. You know how this works.

  • He has arrived ... three minutes late.

  • "This is a great, great Georgia football team. Our kids ought to be into it and ready to play."

  • On if he'd buy stock in this team: ``I've seen them go through a lot of good and some bad -- and handle both. They just keep coming back, keep playing, keep fighting. They just keep hanging in there."

    (He won't answer the question.)

  • On A.J. Green: ``AJ is a great talent. He has a lot of range and a lot of speed. He's their go-to guy this year. They take a lot of shot down the field with him. It'll be a huge challenge for our secondary -- which should be fun for our secondary. He'll make you go to work all night long. We'll have to make sure we have the right matchups when he's on the field."

  • On Joe Cox: ``The more pressure you get on him, the better. He's a very, very good quarterback. He's very accurate. He's an extremely talented guy. He can put the ball right on the money."

  • On Georgia's underperforming defense: ``When I look at them on film, I see a very talented team that has been very productive."

  • On injuries: ``Our staff has done a really nice job of being able to plug other guys in. Onterio McCalebb has been out ... and we've had some young guys stuff in there. They'll have to continue doing that."

  • On the line between promoting assistant for other jobs and wanting to keep a good staff at Auburn: ``It's a fine line. I want to help our guys to be able to achieve every goal that they set out to do when they became a head coach. If that's being a head coach, I want to help them -- just the way people helped me. I don't want to lose any of them. At the same time, my job as a head coach is to help them achieve those goals. There's no reason I wouldn't help them -- and they know that."

  • On retaining offensive swerve: ``You'd like to think you could carry it week-to-week. Sometimes we start the game off slow and we pick up momentum as we go. It's a game-by-game issue, in my opinion."

  • Travante Stallworth is out this week. ``He won't be playing."

  • On Ben Tate getting national respect: ``I'm really proud of him and the achnowedlgements he's receiving now are certainly well-deserved. He's a guy who laid low at the beginning of the year and did what he needed to do to become a better football player. Twelve hundred yards later, it's showing up."

  • Ben Tate's effect on recruiting: ``If you have a guy hit 1,000 yards in nine games in this league, that's hard to do. The proof is there. If you want to rush for 1,000 in this offense, you have opportunities to do that. You know you're going to get the ball."

  • That's a wrap.

I swear, I can't make this stuff up:

UGAly- "Eddie, pour eddie ! Everything you said is pure subjective,
I don't blame you for wishing uga in decline and all that, and like a true aub alum I understand your lack of ability for loyalty( ask tubbs)
But were fine in athens and we will make whatever changes that are needed at the end of the year! I am not worried at all by one bad season ! You seem to ignore that -16 turnover stat, yet we have still manage to be competitive ! We will be fine.
Judgeing by the way Az st, Ark, even lsu have played we are not that bad, but you will find out sat!
Oh yeah there are many sites if you google toughest schedule in 09 that does have Uga ranked much higher, and says there 08 was the toughest ! You just keep changing coaches and playing patsy's you are bound to luck up one year!"

Fortunately, I don't work with any die hard football fans, so I don't have to deal with jerks from the opposing teams.

Is Lane Kiffin a football analyst on the side? Last week, he wore a ESPN hat to his presser. This week, it's a CBS College Sports hat.

11:44 AM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

UGA is inconsistent if anything. Their offense was crazy against Arkansas and South Carolina (back when USC was playing decent defense). Their defense was pretty darn decent looking against LSU and OK State. They just can't maintain either, or put them together in the same game (save Tennessee Tech- patsy anyone??).


The thing that makes me think Auburn will win handily is Auburn's ability to stay unified and keep battling. When UGA gets down, they're eerily similar to AU 2008. The coaches look confused, the players look angry, depressed, and unmotivated, and there is very little unity on those sideline.

Auburn is mentally stronger this year, and that should be the difference.

Just don't kick the dang ball to #2 (Brandon Boykin). He'll murder our shoddy kickoff team.

11:45 AM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

Norm, Scottie, it's good to know he still may end up normal. Truth be told I can't help but love that he's able to go to UGA free. So I just brush off these little remarks as stuff he's picking up from the leghumpers.

Love that last statement about Tate. I agree his showing this year in this offfense will help recruiting.

12:02 PM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

I will let it be known that the Georgia fans in my office (which equate to about 5 of the 15) are much more quiet this year than in years past. I think they're pretty unsure which team of theirs is going to show up Saturday, as am I. I'm hoping that ours is the team that WHUPPED up on UT. Yeah that team from the first 3 quarters.

12:03 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

I hope the Georgia team that played UT shows up.

12:05 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Georgia has been consistently average ever since the LSU game. That seemed to be the game that marked the end of their inconsistencies. Since then, they have been steamrolled by Tennessee and Florida with big wins (as expected) against Vandy and Tennessee Tech.

The only real surprise in that stretch is the blowout win by Tennessee, but more the manner of the loss than the loss itself. But that result becomes less surprising with every game that UT plays since.

12:07 PM  
Blogger diggerforAu said...

college football is so unpredictable and as parity has swooped down on us it is getting more so. Can only hope that the auburn of the first 5 games or last 2 will show up and not the three in the middle, Go Tigers beat those leghumping butt licking Dogs.

12:07 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

I didn't really think he was a Jawja grad, Eddie. It was just that he said something somewhat derogatory about you being an AU alum, so I did wonder if he was claiming to have actually gone to school at UGA.

12:17 PM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

Eddie ...I feel the UGA hate, but differently than you.

I just spent 3 days fishing on Lay Lake between Clanton and Wilsonville. I saw 60-80 Bama-attired fans and 1 AU-attired fan that would qualify as never-have-attended their school. That is probably an appropriate ratio for the Bama-AU relationship. If in Ga. there may have been 15-20 folks in that catagory.

My problem is with the UGA grads. These folks whine, moan and desert their team at the first sign of trouble. Unlike the UT, UF or AU fans I know here ....the UGA fans I meet/know are "football ignorant".

12:18 PM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

"A Bammer Story" ...We fished and drank beer until dark on Friday, then decided to go out to eat at a BBQ house on Hwy 145 (not recommended btw). I was gonna shower, change clothes, etc. and my buddy curiously said that it would be better to go as dressed. We walked in the restaurant and I courteously removed my fishing hat, which drew stares from the patrons, of which 10-15 were proudly donning Bama hats. Realizing that manners were not appreciated, I promptly replaced my HABOTN hat on my head just to fit in. I then drew stares as the only blue-orange hat in the place.

The fact that Stallworth isn't day-by-day is conerning. I think he might be out for a while.

Just once I would like to hear a coach say "we should really beat the crap out of them. Their defense isn't that good and their offense is eratic".

12:48 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Nope, you're mistaken, Hoopie. That's Denny Chimes, alright. Haven't you heard about Bama's new tradition where the team captain sits in the top and Bammer fans pay $50 each to sit in the bottom?

Hoopie, next time you are around Lay Lake on Fri or Sat nite, go to Lessie's outside of Clanton and eat their seafood buffet. Its one of the few places around that puts raw oysters on a buffet.

The atmosphere isn't much, but the food is good. Both the staff and customers are mostly sidewalk bammers, so be prepared for all that goes along with that.

You need to stand a little closer to the razor next time.

Digger, I'm a very manly man. It's nigh on 9p here and I shaved before 6a this morning. For a few hours or so, I look relatively clean shaven.

Norm...that AU eye patch is totally bad a$$. Maybe we should have a HABOTN eye patch day just so we can show our support.

Who am I kidding? I just want to walk around in an AU eye patch.

AUrrrrrrgh!

Norm you are right no MAN shaves two times in a 24 hour period

8:15 PM

Think all the roids bleached Sosa out? That's just bizarre.

I always knew Sosa was a freak.

Gotta say I agree with you...

Not going to shave twice in a 24 hour period.

Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn spoke to Evan Woodbery about head coaching openings and gave a quote that will bring a smile to Auburn fans' faces.
"I'm flattered if my name gets thrown around, I guess, but I'm extremely happy here...we've got big goals, big dreams here. I'm committed to that. That's the only thing on my mind."

Oh crap... He's gone.

Hey peeps.

I'm totally out of (mental) gas right now. I kinda stiffed you today in terms of content.

Tomorrow will be a better day.

We'll do a stock report.

Have a swell evening.

Correct the first time JZ. It wasn't just the last staff, it's all coaches. They're staying forever until the decide to leave.

Ole Miss's chancellor does not want the south to rise again.

12:01 AM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

That whole deal annoys me. How does saying the south will rise again promote segregation? A bunch of people making a big hoopla where there is no need for it.

12:05 AM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

I don't have the perspective to have an opinion here.

12:26 AM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

The south has already risen. Take a look at Atlanta. Are people migrating north? Too late. It has already happened. Next topic.

Good morning Hotties. Traffic sucks. That's all for now until I get to work.

Some interesting tidbits form Scarbinsky:

According to Rivals.com, Auburn has signed five five-star recruits in the last eight years. Alabama has signed seven five-stars in the last two years and has two more already committed for the class of 2010.

6:07 AM  
Blogger wtc said...

Dyer committed Friday to become the first five-star recruit to sign with Auburn since injury-plagued defensive end Raven Gray in 2008.

Dyer committed to become the first five-star recruit on offense to sign with Auburn since juco running back Brandon Jacobs in 2003.

Dyer committed to become the first five-star recruit on offense to sign with Auburn out of high school since wide receiver Ben Obomanu in 2002.

6:07 AM  
Blogger wtc said...

From 2002 through 2007, Alabama signed exactly three five-star prospects of its own.

6:08 AM  
Blogger LuvAU41 said...

Good morning, Hotties.

What happened to Norm's eye? LOVE the eye patch, BTW!

RE: jhag's quote from Malzahn: As much as I'd like to see him stay for awhile, all coaches say the same thing. If the right HC offer came along, he's gone. Perfect example (not a direct quote, but close): "I guess I'm just going to have to say it. I am not going to be the next coach at the University of Alabama."

6:09 AM  
Blogger wtc said...

AU fans should feel good about the recruiting process. It will take some time, but if you look at what has happened so far, the picture looks a lot better now than 1 year ago. Remember where we were 1 year ago? In the midst of a huge meltdown.
No one has signed yet and it could change by NSD, but right now, these guys have the attention of a lot young kids that are looking to play for a team that is improving and will give them a chance to shine.

Hey Hotties! Y'all have a great day.
I survived prison yesterday.

6:13 AM  
Blogger wtc said...

LUV-I agree. I jsut don't think this is the right job. Even with an ego, many coaches have to lok at Memphis and say, I'll pass.

6:14 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

WTC- I did see that Reed was still on for Friday after the game which is good news for us given the late push Oregon has made. I also see where the odds are shifting from Seastrunk to Lattimore as the most likely 2nd back we get. That concerns me a llittle especially with Dixon who seems to be high on UT now. I always thought Seastrunk, Reed and Dixon would be a package deal but not so much lately.

6:19 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

To Gus' comments.

I concur.

6:23 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

I also agree wholeheartedly with WTC about the way this staff is recruiting. It is actually fun and exciting to follow how and who this staff is recruiting. They are not affraid to go after the best players instead of conceding that they have no chance like the previous staff.

On a side note, they just added another Auburn billboard in Stone Mountain where I work. Timing of it isawesome and they are also recruiting a kid from here.

6:28 AM  
Blogger wtc said...

Eddie-Keep the faith for now. I am sticking with my original statements until proven incorrect.

6:29 AM  
Blogger LuvAU41 said...

wtc, your original statements as in your 6:12 post or something you said awhile back?

6:32 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

WTC- I'm keeping the faith and preaching it. Not as elequant as Brother Jet but I give it my best.

6:32 AM  
Blogger LuvAU41 said...

Speaking of Brother Jet...

6:35 AM  
Blogger wtc said...

Luv-From earlier this season, if not before the 1st game.

To summarize:
AU lands LOwens, MDyer, LSeastrunk, ADixon, TReed.

6:37 AM

I would also be surprised if they do not land:
Eric Mack
Mike Thorton
VBeasley
Dakota Moseley

I have no idea who any of those people are, but I hope they all come to Auburn and are very successful.
