Other Chizik chatter from Sunday

Hey everyone. Now that you know about Zac Etheridge's situation, let's look at a few other points.

  • On the behavior of Rodney Scott, the Ole Miss tailback who was pinned under Etheridge: ``I don't know how he knew. He knew (Etheridge) couldn't move. He sat as still as the night lying right underneath him. It was one of the most phenomenal things I've witnessed in doing this."

  • On Onterio McCalebb not playing against Ole Miss: ``We've got to get him healthy, 100 percent. He's not that same guy without that speed -- being able to make those quick cuts. We decided it would be best to rest him."

  • On why Auburn's pass rush was so much better Saturday: ``You're seeing Antoine Carter play better as the weeks go on. He's getting closer to where he was when he left off last spring. You're seeing Antonio Coleman play with two hands now. You're seeing him be more of what he was before he did that to his hand. It's really nice to see him getting some pressure. Even the inside guys -- they're getting some push up front that's critical to the rush."

  • On Eltoro Freeman's play: ``He was productive. As the weeks continue to go and him being consistent in practice, he's going get better. He's active. He's going to show up. He'll get more comfortable … but I'm pleased."

Did you see that TD play by the packers. Those three DBs running into each other looked like the Three Stooges!

So happy to finally get to meet you and your sister! You are the only one who found me.

yaaa everybody lets boo a hall of fame legend that holds every single record possible for a qb, and he is 40 and sculpting our defense up, idiots

5:04 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

Glad I was able to find and meet you Cincy and your family. I could not find any other Hotties. Your dogs are precious!

Posted on the previous thread:
I know AC has to be feeling bad too. It was just an accident, two players going in for the tackle.

Spikes intentionally poking that guy's eyes, now that is senseless and warrants a suspension.

5:04 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Scott not moving was very classy. He knew something was wrong. It was very considerate of him and consistent with how I believe these players view each other. Each of them realize that they could have been Etheridge.

5:05 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

We should rest Onterio McCalebb next week too. Surely we can beat Furman without him.

5:14 PM  
Blogger PCTiger said...

Glad to hear Etheridge will be ok. I hope he will be able to return next year.

5:16 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

We should keep resting McCalebb until bama game if he needs it IMO. Like Chizik said, he is not the same player without his quick cuts and speed burst which he doesn't have with out it.

Packers starting to make a game out of this after being down 24-3.

5:20 PM

It's a good one in Green Bay. Vikings 24- Packers 20.

5:28 PM  
Blogger Dear Leader said...

i think spike should be tossed...forever...

Throwing a punch gets you tossed... and that can be a reaction.

the intentional attempt to hurt someone, in the eyes no less, is not deserving

5:29 PM

ps go vikings

5:30 PM

31-20 Vikings...still a good game. Almost the full 4th quarter to go.

5:40 PM

31-26 Vikings now..seriously, this is good :)!

Is it good, Eddie?

Nah, it stinks. I wouldn't waste my time.

How bout those Titans? Told y'all (or maybe just Sean) that the Titans and Auburn would have a renaissance this weekend. Proof's in the pudding.

5:59 PM

Packers within' striking distance. Jhag, if I were a Packer fan, I'd boo Brett.

5:59 PM

E-bro, you were right! I'm finally feeling good this weekend. Both my teams have finally won.

boo him for the great 16 years and winning a super bowl

6:02 PM

And boy does it feel good.

6:03 PM

I'd boo him because he plays for the enemy. I'll appreciate the career one he hangs it up.

Bro- So are you dropping Denver now that you are not there?

6:04 PM

The Green Bay defense is awful.

No Eddie, I'm still with the Broncos. Titans have been and always be my main NFL team (for what that's worth), but I pull for the Broncos too, even after today. I like the way McDaniels has handled everything

Watching the playback on CSS. duirng the game I did nto realize that we did nto score from the 5:30 point left in the 3rd quarter. No TD in the 1st and none in the 4th. Need to correct that.

6:18 PM

Lattimore says he had a great visit. I do not see him coming to AU but he said he was impressed with everything and AU would be in it to the end.

6:20 PM

Wonder if he is at St. Vincents? There or Brookwood would be my guess since he is not at UAB.

ESPN now projects AU to play in the Outback bowl vs. Wisconsin. A lot can happen, but that is better than Shreveport.

6:35 PM

Outback bowl is a good bowl...or it was in 1997.

If someone listens to fbomb this week, let meknow if he remarks about the dissention and racial problems AU has. It really showed up on Saturday didn't it.

What a LOSER that goober is.

I hope to be there.

6:43 PM

Agree wtc..

I saw Auburn in the 6-6/7-5 range before the season. Right now I think they'll end up 8-4.

Chizik and his staff have done a good job working around deficiencies.

6:43 PM

Maybe the team watched "Roots" on Friday night.

CFN has Auburn going to the Cotton bowl, that seems very likely to me. Outback seems unlikely, they almost always take an East team.

Based on things I heard tonight from Travante Stallworth and Ted Roof, I don't think Zac Etheridge is in great shape.

I cannot get reliable, first-hand information on Etheridge's overall condition.

I hate to hear that about Zac. Continue prayers for him and his family.

I hate to hear that, but hopefully it's something he can quickly overcome.

That was a really hard shot he gave on that tackle.

8:03 PM

I just get the sense he won't play again. I could be wrong.

8:04 PM

I see where you get that impression just by the way I've seen things worded.

There are far more important things than playing football even though sometimes we act like there isn't.

As I said before my prayers are with Zac and his family. Hope he recovers and has no permanent damage.

Hey Hotties!

Boy, has it been a whirlwind few days! We did get closed and moved into the condo. It was awesome getting to tailgate there with the rainy day on Saturday. And we WON!! I was a little concerned that this condo was the reason AU was losing, but maybe we just had to get into it to get Auburn back to their winning ways :)

I think I burned my candle at both ends a little too much this week. I ended up at Urgent Care today with a horrible sinus infection. I cannot remember the last time I have been sick, but I have had two nasty bugs in the last couple of months! But, I am on good drugs and already feeling better.

I love Auburn! We had such a great day! The only blemish was Zac's injury. I hope all of this is precautionary and he isn't going to have permanent problems. Prayers here for him.

Sorry, THT, that doesn't sound very interesting. Tom is flipping between the World Series and some movie with Denzel Washington. I hate the NY Yankees. Just sayin.

I hope you and Mrs. THT can come by the condo on Saturday. We'll have lots of food both before and after the game.

they're still playing baseball?

MrsTHT and I won't be in town for homecoming. I have the distinct honor and privilege of working next weekend. We'll be driving down on T'giving Day and having dinner at the Auburn Hotel & Conf Ctr. We're going to drive back to NC after the game Friday.

We are having Thanksgiving dinner at my in-laws in Auburn. We would love to have y'all join us if you don't want to eat at a restaurant. That is a sincere invitation. If youdon't want to do that, I hope you will at least come by the condo and eat with us before the AU-AL game on Friday.

I'll be riding solo Saturday, but I've got to drop by ElTurbo's apartment, which I think is near your new abode. I'll try to pay my respects.

Hope you can come by. We are going to be putting our first condo, the one on West Glenn, up for sale in the next few days. If you know of anyone looking, send them my way.

Jet-I may join you. I've got some stuff to do at the soroity dorm, but most of that is very earlyand then lunch before the game. Maybe we can catch up and drop in on cincy. I would like to see her new digs.

9:07 PM

My daughter has a sorority formal Saturday night, so I'll be staying home this weekend. I'm sending in replacement Auburn fans so my seats won't empty. I'll definitely be down for the Bama game and hope we can have a Hottie meet & greet!

For anyone coming by to see me:

If you come in off of Cox Street, you will come through the parking lot and we are Unit 216. (First floor, so not sure why it is 216) If you come in off of Magnolia you have to come through a locked gate. Email me and I will give you the code. We are the first unit you come to after the gate, on the corner.

Hope to meet some of you folks the day after Thanksgiving.

Looks like the DE that Tubbs recruited and then went to JUCO is headed to Tenn. Ken Adams is being recruited as a tight end. he visited UT the weekend and says he is going there now.
AU had slow played him. He would have been good to have but I think AU has a good shot at some high profile DEs and may have decided they could use the 4 years instead of 2.

10:02 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

FSJ-I mentioned this about two weeks ago and you responded, but I am asking again.

Corey Grant was at the Ole Miss game this weekend. I think he is still going to yoru school, but with the way saban recruits, does not go against his way of doing things?

I know he had the "you shop, we shop" thing his first year..but I think that was to weed out some kids Shula offered.

Trent Richardson took a bunch of visits last year even though he committed early.

With that said, I find it interesting that Grant is going to so many AU games. The folks on TI don't seem concerned, but I think it is odd.

10:15 PM

No idea how that happens. LSU hasn't beaten anybody besides us. And we are what in the 30s and 40s according to the computers.
