Radio Appearance Forthcoming, other stuff

Hey everyone. I will be doing my weekly segment on SuperSport 930 out of Jackson, Miss., in a bit. That extravaganza will begin around 9:05 a.m. CST.

We'll be talkin' Auburn, the Heisman Trophy, Tiger Woods, Tim Tebow, Doug Barfield. The usuals.

Be there or be rectangular.

SCHEDULE UPDATE
Auburn has released its practice schedule for the next few weeks. There is good news for j00. A few of those practices will be open for 30 minutes, which means you'll get some practice video. Aren't you excited? Maybe we'll get some footage of scout-team stalwarts PPL and Tyrik Rollison.

Dates: Saturday, Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday (Dec. 18), Saturday (Dec. 19), Monday (Dec. 21), Tuesday (Dec. 22).

Then they're off until Tampa.

Doug Barfield is a former coach, I think he's off limits.

OK.... what is it going to take for PPL to get some substance?

JGT he was one of the fastest on the team at one point?? Has his knee injury slowed him down that much??

NFL Network: When I still was on cable, my provider was shady and declined to pay for the games. So when the network aired games, all I got at my house was some 1970s NFL Films marathon. I was unhappy.

I freed myself of that nonsense and now get the NFL Net games on Dish Network. Every time a game comes on, I feel like I'm sticking it to my unnamed, former cable provider. It makes me happy.

Tiger seemed like a fraud to me for a long time.

FSJ ..you're right about the Au heading downhill. What "some other folks" know is the clandestine interference from the AU PTB that greatly fostered that slide.

Did the guy finally get worn down and stick it to the PTB? I think the fact that he took the $5 mil check is a good indicator.

The problem at AU wasn't the coach, it was the coach having to swim upstream against his own "folks".

KU would be a good job fot CTT. But I do not think that he brings any excitement to the press conference. If CTT does not get a job this year I do not think he will ever coach college ball again. So if KU is interested he should be.

My guess is that PPL is going to be AWOL. Somehow he just hasn't endeared himself to the new staff and with 4 4 star receivers in the incoming class to go with the current talent, I don't see him in the mix. He had his shot to impress as a punt returner. That didn't last long.

As for former coaches, RK, I agree that the environment at Auburn had issues. Hopefully that is changing.

10:17 AM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

I've noticed that as as the smart-alec berating of coaches has increased on the HABOTN ...the variety of posters has dwindled. In fact, the berater then redefines/skews the situation to try and enlist a few compatriots. He then follows up by making fun of the fact that some one complained about it in the first place. Is that genius? ..or an indicator of psychological deficiency?

Are folks just get tired of hearing the same old tired act? Based on reduced variety, that may be the case. I know I stay away because it really gets old.

Blogger KJtiger said...

The old coaches had a hand in the environment that they worked. I just do not think it was all the evil PTB. I think the PTB saw things they did not like and the old staff said Hey this is our team. And the snowball began. I think the situation at UGA mirrors AU's. Except they have deep talent.

I'm just glad to see Gran get away from Knoxville before it emplodes.

Maybe I missed something Hoopie..

I haven't seen anybody dogging Tuberville.

Facts are this....Tuberville's recruiting was in the abyss his last two years at Auburn. Now some of the problem may have been the PTB as you say..but I am sure..no make that POSITIVE that Tuberville wasn't working as hard on the recruiting trail as he should have been. The poor assistant for AU that was assigned up this way had no chance. It's impossible to recruit against the HC of another school when your HC won't put forth the effort.

Ask the Gadsden City assistant that posts on the ITAT premium board. He'll tell you. Tuberville was AWOL.

Thanks for the catch on the Southern Beverage/ Whippin' post connection. That just scored me brownie points with the sponsor.

As to the Patterson Hood/Mike Cooley/Brent Best references. These are all guys whom Nichols lists as influences on his art.

And from what I have read, Ingram will likely be the guy for the Heisman. I don't see him as that type of player, but marketing is a large part of it. I once read an article about how Auburn marketed Pat Sullivan and all the calls that were made to voters.

FSJ,

I've been a big fan since I was a kid. The line up has changed over the years due to tragedy and other events, but always a collection of great musicians.

10:29 AM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

To try and not get too specific, it is usually foolish to try and blame a situation on one specific cause. There is plenty of blame to go around.

It is much more productive to look to the future. Heck, many bashed Chizik before he gotten started at Auburn. Look to the future. As for past coaches, I hope they do well. I consider them Auburn men, other than one whom I will not mention.

During the next 2 to 3 years we will get a good idea of how Chizik will do. He is off to a great start. Maintaining a program isn't easy in the SEC, but I like Chizik's chances.

By the way, I also remember a bunch of Auburn fans trashing Chizik when he left for Texas. It wasn't on here, but it happened. You never know when things may come back around, and in this case they did.

RK --

DBT used to be my favorite American band. Then Patterson ran Jason Isbell out of the band, and it hasn't been the same since.

Here's two ways you can tell they jumped the shark:

1. Brighter than Creation's Dark sounds like the band bought massive ammounts of stock in the Hammond B-3 Organ company.

2. Even worse, they're letting Shonna sing. Girls should sing harmony only in the DBT.

Band will never recover IMO.

It is very strange how musical tastes change. Much of the music I liked growing up now seems kind of silly. I have learned to appreciate music that I use to seriously dislike. I guess aging changes you tastes or something like that.

10:32 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Steve,

I think when Chiz left for Texas after we were undefeated a lot of people wondered why he would make what seemed like a lateral move. Plus we knew he was a good coach, so people were upset about that and probably lashed out. Then once Gibb's D didn't play well at times it made Chizik's leaving sting more...then Muschamp followed in his footsteps.

Plus it's the internet and people just say strange stuff.

Either way, he's back home now.

Chiz left Auburn for Texas to elevate his chances at a future head coaching job, although he didn't leave Auburn so much as he left Tubs. Tubs wasn't really willing to help him out that much in becoming a head coach anywhere. Mack Brown was.

Blogger E-Bro said...

Steve, it's a much different deal they have at Texas. Champ is the head coach designate. Nothing is set in stone. No money is promised to Champ at any point. Champ can take another job if he so desires.

It's just that, if he's still at Texas when Mack retires, the job is his if he wants it.

10:45 AM

I think Muschamp may have had a switcheroo played on him. I just cannot see him hanging on for 5-7 more years. To me the luster will wear off and he may end up like bud foster.

The most exciting thing now is that this recruiting class could easily turn into the best recruiting class I have ever seen at Auburn. In September, I thought it average or possibly a little below average. I have been shocked at how well we have done. If we finish this off with a couple of high profile OL and one or two DT, I will be very happy.

Throw one or two more DBs in the mix wouldn't hurt either.

I would like to have another RB. With Smith, Fanin, Aycock, Flash,and Dyer I think we need a bruiser type back.

JKev, i completely disagree on the DBT.

Isbell definitely brought good things to the Truckers, but they made their best two albums without him: Brighter Than Creations Dark and Southern Rock Opera.

And Shonna Tucker's songs on Brighter are some of my favorite Truckers songs they've ever done. She has unique voice, that sounds like Muscles Shoals.

The Truckers have a lot left in the tank.

While he is a bit small, Dyer is a bruiser type back. Seastrunk would be more like FAH. Lattimore is more in between if I remember correctly. If we get either of those two, we are set a RB.

10:56 AM  
Blogger KJtiger said...

I think that you cannot go wrong with a bruiser. Someone who can move the pile. I think dyer and smith may fit that role the more I think about it. But I think Gus puts a premium on speed and getting to the outside. I beleive we get seastrunk.

11:00 AM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

I had to watch some film on Dyer because I wondered about his height. He is just thick, not fat. I am looking forward to seeing what he does.

As for Smith, he looks to be a solid contributor although I really haven't seen anything in him that would make me think he would be a star. It could be that his versatility ends up being his strongest suit.

Blogger §teveFC said...

Don't forget that Anthony Gulley could end up play RB too.

11:08 AM  
Blogger KJtiger said...

Is gulley more a hybrid back? Sort of a bigger FAH role.

I think Boom stays @ Texas until LSU or Georgia come open, then he jumps if either show interest.

11:18 AM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

All I remember about Chiz and Muschamp leaving was how overly pissed I was about Texas coming in and stealing our really good DC's. I couldn't figure out why we were the defensive feeder school for UT.

On Muschamp, does anyone know if he has a deal like Jimbo did with after a certain number of years his salary would go up to that of a head coach even if he was still DC?

Jet is as usual dead on.

11:29 AM  
Blogger diggerforAu said...

I agree Boom would jump at a chance to coach at Ga. or LSU but that may not happen for a while IMHO.

11:29 AM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

I think if Fanin could solve his fumble issues, he could be very productive. Also watching him on tv it looks like he has 28" biceps.

Jet,

The irony would be if Boom took over for Saban whenever he decides to retire...

I don't see Alabama hiring an assistant again for HC.

Hopefully not at least.

11:30 AM  
Blogger KJtiger said...

I think Boom is guarenteed a one year roll over for as long as mack is HC. But I think his deal is just a 1 year contract with a 1 year roll over for 900k.

11:31 AM  
Blogger diggerforAu said...

I ran across "In their on words" while scrolling yesterday and watched Saban. It turned out very interesting. He admitted handling the press wrong at the end of his tenure at Miami. At his age and place in life he may well stay at Alabama until he reitres. Unless things just went south which I doubt.

11:35 AM  
Blogger KJtiger said...

AS much as I hate it. I do not see him going anywhere. Unless the NCAA is coming (which I doubt) They are perfect for each other.

11:49 AM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

I am not sure what will happen with Gulley, although the coaches seem to want to get him involved.

11:52 AM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Actually, I would be happy if Saban just stays where he is. We have beat him in the past and will do so in the future.

Anybody else seen this?
http://www.fantasycollegeblitz.com/should-alabama-be-ineligible-for-the-coaches-poll-hence-out-of-bcs-championship/

I'm not sure what's wrong with the logic, but surely the entire coaches' poll would notice that Alabama is on probation and ineligible for the coaches poll. Right?

11:55 AM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Good luck with that.

12:02 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

I am not sure I would call the textbook scandal major. Did they receive major penalties for it? Not that I recall.

12:04 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

Interesting David, unfortunately when it comes to the Tahd's 42nd national champeenshup rules don't apply

12:05 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

I think the deal is that if you are ineligible for post season play you can't be in the BCS poll.

Alabama is obviously eligible for postseason play.

12:05 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

sorry..coaches poll

12:07 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Besides...OU was on probation last year.

12:07 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Yea, the whole point is defining major. Besides, I see no reason Bama shouldn't be eligible. If they had gained a significant competitive advantage, it would be different. I would consider what may have happened with Tennessee much more significant if it turns out to be true.

12:08 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

whatever FSJ. your "facts" don't mean nothin'

12:08 PM

LOL Harrison.

So say this has legs and things happen, and Cincy plays the BCSCG. You think Kelly would be kickin his own butt for missing his chance?

12:13 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

I still can't get all caught up in the NC hype. LSU winning the NC a while back while loosing two games, including I believe their final regular season game against Arkansas, points out what a joke the NC is. To me, the SEC championship is much more impressive. The NC is much more a feel good prom queen deal.

12:13 PM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

I'd take a BCS championship Steve

12:14 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

This thing has no legs, not even little stubs. Bama will play Texas for the NC.

12:14 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

I would rather be the Auburn 2004 team that got snubbed than the 2007? LSU team that got a bogus championship. Win them all and nothing else matters.

12:16 PM  
Blogger The Most Interesting Jet in the World said...

I think LSU or UGA will be open in 2011. Perhaps both.

12:16 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

KJ: Awesome avatar.

12:17 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

LSU or UGA are both places I eventually expect change, but I think Richt has a bit more support than I first thought. To me Miles is more likely to get the opportunity to find a new career path than Richt, primarily due to Miles' winning personality and ability to make some of the most unusual calls.

12:18 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

I bet LSU is open after next season..

He's going to be bleeding coaches after this year too..

Only so many times you can throw the assistants under the bus.

PLUS...Les could possibly lose to Auburn and Alabama next year.

12:18 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Apparently the UT cheerleaders have already made their way to Pasadena.

UA's cheerleaders look like they are 13.

Hook 'em

12:21 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

The fact that Reed decided to leave Louisiana also is interesting. At the same time I read where LSU is likely out of the running for Seastrunk after their RB coach left. LSU got two new RB commits after his departure.

12:21 PM  
Blogger The Most Interesting Jet in the World said...

I had dinner with an elected statewide official from Louisiana last Friday night.

He better win the West next year or he will be de-Hat-itated.

Exactly Jet.

If the hat is not in Atlanta next year he's toast.

There is probation, and there is probation AND ineligible for postseason competition.

Next thing you'll tell me is that neither of the major candidates for President of the United States in 2008 were born in the U.S., and therefore ineliglble to serve.
