Schedule update

Hey everyone. Sorry for the lack of posts here lately. I spent some time with the eye doctor on Monday, changed my eyeglass prescription and it took some time to see well sans headache.

I'm better now. Thanks for asking.

Auburn practices today beginning at 1:50 p.m. I'll be there. The best news for you? The first 30 minutes (allegedly) are open to Le Media, so you (allegedly) can expect a video around 3 p.m. That should be fun.

ALSO OF NOTE: Several unsigned prospects will be making significant announcements today. DL Craig Sanders and LB Jessel Curry are expectted to announce plans to enroll at Auburn in January. A few important junior-college players will make decisions today as well.

UPDATE ONE: Our friends at AuburnSports.com report that Craig Sanders, a DL from Ariton High, has signed with the Tigers. He'll enroll in January.

See you then.

E-Bro said " We need to start the season a week earlier or end it a week later and make sure these guys two off weeks during the season, not just one."

That's going to be a problem, E-Bro. When NCAA expanded season to 12 games a few years ago, they did not expand the number of weeks allowed to play those games. The same rules for when a season starts/finishes apply for 12 game season as for 11 game season. At least, that's what I recall reading once upon a time. All teams in conferences with a championship game lose a potential bye week.

Yeah, lets extend the season, but don't bring up playoffs, and the fact division 2 is going from 12 teams to 20 teams for their playoff.

I guess nobody will get to play bama after bye week now.

A quick story on C Sanders.
When AU coaches made the now famous limo ride around the state, they stopped at his school and made a big pslash in the paper. Of course the local call-in show in Montgomery was doggin' the limo thing, and I think two days later Snaders commits to UA. Longshore ripped AU coaches for the pitiful showing of the limo ride and how lame it was, etc. (Didn't get any recruits, this is childish, I wouldn't be impressed by it, etc.)

I haven't listened in about 3 motnhs, but I would guess he hasn't brought that up again. I am not saying it worked, but I would not expect him to give it any credit for working in AU's favor.

so Big Ten+1 may expand to a dozen.

ESPN's Big Ten blogger "Here's my realistic list of Big Ten expansion possibilities:

Missouri
Syracuse
Pittsburgh
Nebraska
Rutgers
______________

ok, he's smoking something funny. Why on earth would Missouri or Nebraska want to leave the Big 12 for a crappy conference?
Pittsburgh seems the best option from both sides of the equation. But Big 10's yearning for east coast presence may help Rutgers or Syracuse. Either of those would weaken the conference.

Just shows the Big Ten's detachment from reality of they think they can get Missouri and Nebraska, though maybe those teams feel it will be easier to get to a BCS Bowl in the Big (not) Ten. Probably right.

Still, I don't see anyway that happens.

10:14 AM

Blogger §teveFC said...

If Brandon Mosley signs with Auburn, that is huge. He was the least likely of the five early signings I thought we were going after. I had read that FSU and Ole Nutt were ahead of us.

Curry and Sanders were considered locks. Gayden was likely. Adams was possible. Mosley is the one I didn't think we would get. I hope this news is true.

10:21 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

E-Bro - that was a list of Adam Rittenberg, an ESPN Big Ten blogger, not from the conference.

Digger, ND wants no part of the Big Ten.

TCU would jump at the opportunity, but I think Big Ten will be motivated by vanity, i.e. they want everyone to see them. So, I think they'll look in the general direction of NYC. I hope I'm wrong and that they use logic and good sense in their choice.

10:22 AM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

If I read correctly, the ESPN blogger is projecting Missou or Neb to go to the Big10, not the Big 10 projecting such. As usual, it is an ESPN guy that is under presssure to say "something/anything" that has put out delusional.

Momma says: "talk long enough and you will eventually say stoopid stuff".

10:24 AM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Notre Dame already competes in the Big 10 in basketball if I am not mistaken, but I think they will still be a no go in terms of football.

I have read about Kentucky being a possibility, but I don't really see it. Kentucky could do themselves a bigger favor and join the Big East. Let Georgia Tech back into the SEC and that would work very well for me.

I have heard the Missouri and Nebraska talk, as well as Iowa State. Iowa State might make more sense here, but Nebraska would be huge.

10:29 AM

ND is in Big East

10:31 AM

Iowa State would make a lot of sense, but I seriously doubt the Big Ten+1 wants them.

10:33 AM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

I think that Gayden is very important, wish we could get 2 Juco OL in Jan.

Watching Curry in the GHSA AA CG, he is a smart, savvy ballplayer with excellent fundamentals. He will probably need spend a year or 2 bulking up enuff to contribute at MLB, similar to how Bynes does now. I don't think he is fast enough to play on the outside in the SEC. Of course our LB depth issues may cause him to be on the field next season, especially on special teams.

Regardless of all that...getting him in Jan. to count as a 2009 recruit is awesome.

10:34 AM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

I prefer Ky in the SEC. it gives us more basketball cred and their location is not a recruiting threat.

A successful GT in the SEC would compete against AU much more for recruits than now.

10:38 AM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

The Big 10 just wants to get to 12 so they can have a championship game, so Iowa State is a possibility, but adding Nebraska would definitely be the shocker. Adding Pitt would make a lot of sense too.

10:38 AM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

I would love GT in the SEC, and yes it would be more competition. The ACC swapping GT for Kentucky wouldn't be bad either. The ACC with Kentucky basketball would be pretty awesome.

10:40 AM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

I realized it was the Big Ten Blogger's wishlist and no the Big Ten's, but let's face it, he's basically an extension of the Big Ten. Just like Low is a homer for the SEC, I'm sure this guy is a bit of a homer for the Big Ten.

When I said the Big Ten was delusional, I meant the Big Ten in general, its fans and media included.

10:41 AM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

I guess the Big 10+1 wants to position for a conference playoff. I can see ND or maybe Pitt. Anyone else would just be a filler team to get to 12.

Would this conference then be named the "Big-12-Too"?

10:43 AM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Why would Kentucky leave SEC money for Big East money? That's just crazy talk. Besides, the SEC would find a way to keep them for basketball.

Playing GT regularly again would be great.

10:44 AM

I had to take a look at some of the results from the early pick. And ya know for the most part the teams that they have put in the top 10 end up in the BCSCG and occasionally the teams listed as 1 and 2 in the AP actually make it to the end (04 and 05 most recently). But doing a quick glance, about 50% of the teams they list in their top 10 are not there by seasons end.

Peter- That was the story originally, but he went ahead and sent it in according to his Coach. I'm not sure on the number of people you can sign in December, but I believe it is in accordance to how many scholarships you have used from the class that you signed in February and along with the 85 max. I think this staff is only going after the number of quality players it think can make this team a contender. I believe they could sign more than 5, but WTC would have to confirm that. I'm not 100% sure.

Early grads can enroll and count back one recruiting class. The number depends on how many players under the 25 class limit a team is. In Auburn's case I think we had 20 enroll this past year. So that is why the coaches are trying to get 5. Of course you still have to make sure you don't go over the 85 limit which in Auburn's case is no problem..thanks former coach that I can not name.

if we bring in 5 towards last year, and 25 for '10, that's close to 50 right there for '09 and '10. That leaves only 35 for the '07, '08, and '06 (redshirt) classes.

Who likes to crunch numbers? Tell us whether or not we'll have to jettison some current scholarship players if we do add 5 to the '09 class and a full 25 in the '10 signing class.

I can't believe we got Mosley. I just read the other day where we were third behind FSU and Ole Nutt. This is very impressive. All of these early signings are players that can contribute. I like Sanders and his 400 pound bench press. He is a monster.

Last year's class and the year before lost some due to Chizik kicking them off the team. We only brought in 19 or 20 last year and not all of them are still around. I do think we could be easily over 80 here, which would get us back into the normal range. I am very excited. I am convinced that most of our decline in defense was due to some players playing every snap. I am looking forward to seeing a lot of new blood on the field. Several of the incoming linebackers will play immediately.

But I understand that Mosely is signing with Auburn

digger, I said as recently as last night that Mosley was going to FSU or Ole Nutt. I am shocked by that one. Of the five I thought we were trying to sign, I thought him the least likely, with Adams a little more likely. Curry and Sanders were most likely. Gayden is someone I felt pretty good about, too.

1:28 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

AU has received signed papers from Sanders, Curry, Brandon Mosely, and Roszell Gayden today.
Ken Adams has supposedly delayed his decision.

Picking up Gayden is a huge pickup! Look for Brandon Mosley to redshirt and Gayden is probably the front runner for the starting RT gig.

Has anyone heard that Adams may not sign due to grades? I saw a comment about that from a very unreliable source.

I prefer the flagpole area...and for the record, I was just ballbusting until someone decided to become an educator.

1:34 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

That would be Ken Adams, the Auburn signee who didn't qualify and committed to UT. Supposedly we had a shot with him but I have read where he may have grade issues that would prevent him from signing early.

As for Harry Adams, I would color him gone.

1:35 PM

PF prefers flagpoles, CNN reports.

VolQuest is reporting Ken Adams torn between Auburn, Tennessee, and North Carolina and that he will not sign today. If he doesn't sign early, I think we pass on him.

PF and his love of flagpoles will be the subject of a BBC documentary.

1:40 PM

Is anyone else aware of another early signee we are pursuing besides Curry, Gayden, Sanders, Mosley, and Adams?

1:40 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Leon Hart and Lee Tilley.

1:42 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Leon Hart's elligibility is over. Tilley I don't know about.

Frankenbummer read somewhere that the BBC is coming to America for something about flagpoles....don't let them take our flags!

We signed both of them too early, I think they are ready now.

1:43 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

How about Greg Smith? A long time back I read where he thought he would play the first game after he arrived on campus. He is suppose to be a good one.

1:45 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Greg Smith is another good choice, but I'm not sure how well he did at Chattanooga State other than he is over drawn on his cafeteria card.

1:47 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

JaMarcus Russell? Has he got off the sweet leaf yet?

Trey Blackmon? The greatest linebacker for about 3 games Auburn has ever had.

It just goes to show you that until they actually do something, there is no telling.

Clint Moseley may end up being the biggest surprise of all. Both Trooper and Malzahn seem high on him. If I remember correctly, he came from a very small school, so he is going to be very interesting.

1:52 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

What was the name of that offensive linemen we got from FSU? Was it Aubrey Phillips? What happened with him?

1:54 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

Ken Adams? I wonder if that's the same Ken Adams I went to high school with in days of yore. I'll ask him and report back to you.

1:54 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

There are a couple of guys Auburn would love to have that would be early enrollees, but they are currently committed to other schools. Not sure if they have sent in papers yet or not.
Interesting theory being tossed about that Adams is waiting on what Auburn wants to do before signing, ratherthan AU waiting on Adams. (meaning, do they want one of the other guys or Adams)
The names that come to mind are Lawrence Gibson (prep OL from Hargrave) and Bruce Irvin (JuCo LB). Dequan Menzie (JuCo DB) might still be on the radar, but doubtful.

1:55 PM  
Blogger §teveFC said...

Thanks D Miller.

By the way, for those of you concerned about the economy, things appear to be getting better. The company I work for announced a surprise bonus for the end of the year and we are actually getting raises in 2010, which is new. Hopefully this means things are getting better everywhere.

1:58 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

FYI-AU would really like to sign Ken Adams. He took his last class/exam the other day. No details yet as to whether he passed. If not, AU will not wait on him. The reason AU was slow to warm to him earlier was his grade situation (from what I have heard). He supposedley is delaying his announcement to see whether he is a December grad or not. Would not be good to announce you are coming to AU and then not graduate in Dec and have AU not want you any longer.

1:58 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

Dmiller-I think Irvin is now a fall back plan if Adams is out of the picture. Not 100% sure, but AU wants Adams if he graduates. I was told today, AU will not wait very long though.

Very true. I think AU gives Adams some leeway, but they can't afford to wait on him forever. They need to fill that 5th spot.

THT - probably so, since to the best of my recollection he never played football. But, maybe he's a phenom/natural athlete even if he is nearing 50.

You remind me of the kid a while back that announced he was going to sign with a school that never made him an offer.

For those that do not know, Gayden is a BIG guy (6'7" 310lbs) that has played for 2 years in JUCO. He should be one of the starting tackles next year. His last visit was to Cal on 12/11/09 and when he returned home, Chizik had already flown out to Cali to visit him when he returned. AU really wanted this kid. They got him. These coaches know what they want and have worked hard to get it. Just thinking how many ex coaches would have done that?
