Your Auburn update, 12/21

Hey everyone. Auburn's final legit home practice has ended. Some stuff was discussed. Let's talk about it.

  • Reserve fullbacks John Douglas and Jason King (a walk-on) were arrested separately on suspicion of DUI recently. Douglas was arrested on Dec. 5. King was arrested last weekend.

    Gene Chizik said the players have practiced "some," but said they will not be available for the Outback Bowl. Neither player has accrued meaningful statistics this season.

    ``Without going into detail of circumstances, they have been suspended from our football team at this point," he said.

  • The so-called recruiting "dead period" began Sunday morning and runs to January 1. Coaching staffs are banned from face-to-face contact and are permitted one phone call per week to prospects.

    ``I think we’re sitting about as good as we can be sitting with most of the guys we have left out there that we’re recruiting," Chizik said. ``It’s a period of time where they get a little reprieve and a little break from all this but we’re going to continue to recruit them hard within the rules, whatever we’re allowed to do with our one phone call a week."

  • Auburn coaches will take Dec. 24 and 25 off before re-convening in Tampa on the 26th. `` It’s family time and they need a break," Chizik said. ``We all need a break."

Dead Period

I sure hope Chiz knows when dead period is.

The Dead Period sounds like Trooper Taylor's whole year in recruiting.

Jay G, do you think the suspended players are key pieces, or some dudes?

The Dead Period sure sounds like that time I killed that guy.

Blogger SteveFC said...

I wonder what expletive Chizik chose when he heard about Douglas and King. I am sure he is getting sick of dealing with things such as that. I expect some problems with players testing the limits with the new coaching staff, but Chizik has more than made his point. Some of these players need to catch up.

I would say Douglas is a significant loss because of Eric Smith not being available. Also, both contributed on our very special teams this season.

Michael, with 2 accidental clicks it can go from "unlisted" to "public" google map.

5:54 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Somehow I think that, due to the outstanding performance of our special teams and the strict requirement of having a pulse to be on them, the loss of King isn't likely to be the reason should the remote possibility occur that our special teams look bad.

I hated to hear about the 2 guys getting DUI's. Didnn't they learn anything from the recent UF player's suspension?? I also think that losing Douglas will hurt with Smith also being out.
Anybody else watching the Redskins getting killed by the NY Giants??
I'm a Saints fan but I have always pulled for Jason Campbell to do well and I think he takes a lot of the blame when he has no supporting cast to protect him on the O-line. I hope he doesn't get benched. War Eagle to all btw!

8:39 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Am I the only one who figures that Mario Fannin will just get the ball receiving more in the situations where we were going to Smith and that Douglas probably wasn't going to play a big role anyway?

8:42 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

You all remember Mario Fannin don't ya?

He was the guy a year and a half ago that it was rumored if he was ever placed in the same backfield with Kodi Burns would make any offense unstoppable.

8:47 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

RK...um, I think the results speak for themselves buddy.

9:02 PM  
Blogger David said...

I still think Fannin is one of the best backs in the NCAA. He's fast, accelerates well, and can cut with the best of them. He's got great hands too (after he shook the fumble bug from his Freshman year.)

9:54 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

THT-Per previous post. Coleman has almost always been listed as a 'soft verbal' ever since he said he would take other visits. I have noticed the services will do that when the kid actually states I am taking other visits.

10:09 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

Soomeone posted about Seastrunk also. He is not in the picture at AU. At all. I would guess that if AU does not get Lattimore ( I beleive they will) they will go after the RB with the last name of Woodyard. He played inthe AL all-star game and did a very good job. (This is just a guess on my part)

10:11 PM  
Blogger astatguy said...

I didn't know MF had shaken the fumble bug. He still runs too often with the ball in the wrong arm and with way too much space between the ball and his body. High and tight - hold it right.

Anyone else hearing two big announcements tomorrow?

10:14 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

The Rivals guy (Jeff Lee) confirmed the rumor from other day. The RB & DE from SoCarolina were coming to visit after the alls-tar game Saturday. The DE is committed to Tenn. Kiffin got wind of it and called the DE and asked him not to go. (The old 'you shop, we shop' talk) He cancelled and the RB decided to not come by himself.

10:16 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

I think Lutz has been running the spot that Smith played. That will be a good situation there.

10:17 PM

I like Smith - he's a real football player. I think his off-field problems have distracted him.

10:19 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

I believe Ken Adams passed his classes. He islookingto make a decison real soon. If AU gets him and Newton, I think Newton will go against the '09 class and AU will put Adams on the '10 class. They still want him.

He can still enroll early even if he goes against the '10 class right?

I know everyone is all giddy about Newton, but he may not come here and we are ready to throw a couple of guys out. We have to get him 1st.

I recall 2 years ago, most AU fans were poo-pooing the * rankings. We all said Tubbs can coachem up. And we gave examples of Marks and others for AU and Ryans, Arenas and others for UAT.
Strange how things change when your team has turned things around on the recruiting front. Stars mean a lot to many (not all so don't come on here and say 'I never thought stars were important) folks now.

10:31 PM

AU could lose DJ Howard to Clemson. Especially if AU gets Lattimore. Howard wants to play RB. AU thinks he will be a very good DB. Clemson says he is a great RB prospect for them. FWIW

How can I help you with a condo or perhaps some permanent retirement property?

wtc,
Do you really think we get Lattimore to go along with Dyer? I think that would be awesome. Even if we don't get Seastrunk. Who else is in the running for Lattimore and will he commit before signing day? Lots of questions, I know.

10:40 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

I think AU gets lattimore.
Penn State, SoCarolina, AU are in the mix. he recently had an interview that others have talked about that where he said if he was goign to SoCarolina, he would have aleady comitted He had very good words for AU.

Blogger SteveFC said...

wtc, I am not a big believer in stars although stars can't hurt. Just like with Moseley and Rollison. I don't assume one is better than the other based upon the hype. The thing I would put ahead of stars is getting players that will actually show up. We only actually got about 20 of our recruits from last season to actually be members of the team. I guess that the stars on the others might mean something in terms of impressions, but it isn't really helping much. I have seen too many high profile recruits turn into high profile could have beens.

Great warren zevon/ drive by truckers quote, THT. As for the recruiting, i think we get all 3 big running backs we want. MD,LS,ML are all obtainable if ya ask me. I'll be happy to see Newton in the qb mix as well. If all falls like i think we'll be a top 3 recruiting class.

As for Fannin, he isn't the blocker that Smith is. Fannin is very versatile, but not to the extent the Smith seems to be.

11:47 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

I saw where Todd was referred to as a manager, while Newton is a weapon. I like that description.

11:49 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

I still say Fannin has been underutilized at Auburn. He is a playmaker in my eyes. He has had some fumbling problems. But I think you gotta get him the ball.

But what do I know.

12:00 AM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Fannin has a lot of potential. He looks like a solid receiver as well as back. His fumbling issues seem to have decreased, although I am not sure they have gone away. There were also cases where he ran the wrong way, but I don't know of that happening this season. I like what he as done at times this season.

1:10 AM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Fannin is likely a better receiver and probably a better runner than Smith, although Smith may be the better straight ahead type runner. Fannin is more elusive and probably more likely to break a long run.

1:12 AM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Does anyone know much about Tony Hurd, a corner from the state of Texas. I read that he de-committed from Notre Dame and we may be going after him.

1:14 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

We weren't on Hurd's original list of schools. I thought Ryan White was the last CB AU was shooting for in this class. If they need another, why not target Rashad Knight, who has actually shown interest in AU?

Jet, how did your sleep study go? I had one back in August because I'm always sleepy. Of course, that night, I had trouble sleeping, so I had to have an MSLT or nap study the next day. I had no problems falling asleep then. The doctor said I have "excessive sleepiness" and, of course, there's no reason as to why. I now take Adderall 3x a day.

Took a look at that THT. And (like I would expect from the NCAA) it doesn't say what they (the recruiters) can and can't do, just who the contactees would be. Then again that may be in a different section of their rule guide. I understand the contact period, it says what they can do for a certain period of time. Then there's the quiet period which is somehow just a day or two. Are there more restrictions on what the staff can do during the quiet period than in the regular period? Or is it quiet because of the restriction on who they contact?

Just an inquiring mind trying not to do too much at work today.

michael...that's because you're thinking of it in the Arrested Development context in the classic episode where they used that music to represent sadness.

But SC is right. VG is da man.

You gonna have to get a CPAP machine?

oops on the hanging "e".

11:16 AM  
Blogger michael said...

Ha. see, the writers of Arrested Development are just like me.

Blogger The Most Interesting Jet in the World said...

I was joking about the 125 ... much less than that ... CPAP? Maybe.

Christmas Vacation is my favorite...however Bill Murray in Scrooged is very underrated.

Can't see the line, can ya Russ?

I wouldn't be more surprised Eddie if I woke up tomorrow with my face sewn to the carpet.

PF, I have no advice on which ultra-light linux is best. What I am familiar with are all larger distributions, although I am sure you can find something out there that will fit your needs.

SCHEDULE UPDATE

I will be attending the Auburn-Alabama State men's game this evening. I will be providing a live blog for those three of you who may care.

Please stop by if you're so inclined!

12:14 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Sean: Tis the season to be merry!

12:15 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Mr. Tate - that sounds like an exciting evening. Are you implying there will be more Hotties following your live blog than there will be live people at the game?

12:17 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

I care. I just may not be around the cyberwebs to follow.

12:19 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

maybe I can intermingle BYU vs OSU blogging amidst your AU vs ASU blogging. Keep the Hotties on their toes.

12:20 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Jay G.,

I care, but I do hate it for you that you have to watch such bad basketball.

Congrats to your Wildcats on the big 2000th win over Drexel.

12:21 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

and then if we could get Michael to live blog your live blogging, it should make for a memorable evening.

Or people may just choose to drink egg nog tonight.

12:21 PM  
Blogger Sean said...

I vote for the liveblog of the liveblog. Maybe there will be comments posted on the comments. Combine that with a couple of egg nogs and we got ourselves a party.

12:23 PM

Brandon James out of the Sugar Bowl due to surgery on his foot.

Joe McKnight out of Emerald Bowl due to "some paperwork he needs to do."

12:24 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Could Pete Carroll be any more of an idiot by issuing that statement?

Why the NCAA hasn't launched investigation into Reggie Bush at this point is mind boggling to me. The basketball team is about to be hammered...I just wonder if the football team will ever get looked at?

12:42 PM  
Blogger Sean said...

I'm pretty sure they are looking into the Reggie Bush thing or already have.

12:42 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

FSJ's Homemade Julio Jones Video done in Eric Berry style

12:43 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Sean- Last I understood, the NCAA has not launched an investigation into that.

12:44 PM  
Blogger Sean said...

Here and Here.

There are lots of results on the Google machine. You can see them Here

12:48 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

last I heard they had combined the Bush/Mayo investigations.

12:49 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

USC today is like Tennessee in the 90's, you know stuff is going on, but nobody is going after them.

12:49 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Sean- I appologize, I meant an official letter of inquiry. Maybe I'm wrong. Anyways.

12:51 PM  
Blogger J. Kev said...

So, guys would y'all tune in for a special segment of hate tomorrow morning about 9?

We couldn't bear the thought of a week without Jay G on our radio program show.

I sent him an e-mail, but haven't heard back from him.

PS
I am pre-emptively fixing the interwebs stream.

Blogger Eddie said...

Bring the hate JKev.

12:54 PM

What can I say? It's Auburn basketball season, and we're all in misery.

I shall be in attendance tonight when the Thump From Da Gump heads up the freeway to take on the Lee County Disaster Area in the Battle of I-85, Presented by VictoryLand where both teams can be losers.

12:58 PM  
Blogger Sean said...

Eddie, not sure if they have one or not, you'd think they would have had to receive one. I did a search on the LOI and didn't come back with anything on a cursory look.

12:58 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

I would go to the game tonight Jay..

But I bet that one will be a hard ticket....especially for a bammer.

1:05 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Sean- Exactly. I throw my hands up.

1:08 PM  
Blogger scottie burns said...

J-Kev, i'm at work so my HATE will be in full effect. carry on.

1:12 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Bring the hate tomorrow morning...I'm all for it.

1:15 PM  
Blogger J. Kev said...

I guess we'll do it, then. Provided the Hater-in-Chief cooperates.

1:18 PM

Just got back from the Crane Works Christmas party. Got to meet/get an autograph from Coach Dye. Not sure he knew where he was at but it was great to meet him. Jay Barker and JP Wilson was there too but they had to take breaks like little girls. Finescum was there but it was probably a good thing I didn't see him till I was leaving.

1:48 PM  
Blogger Sean said...

Findbum was there? You didn't want to challenge him to Rochambeau?

Tip: Always make sure you get to go first.

1:52 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

It's getting oh so close to flipping time...where's Norm?

1:55 PM  
Blogger Sean said...

Wow 15 posts out is close? I will help get us closer then.

1:57 PM  
Blogger CousinHumpers=Bammers said...

I wanted to challenge him to a game of "wack-a-mole". Guess who the mole was.

1:58 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

Cousin,
I like that game if Paul is the mole. :)

2:03 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Well on slow days like today, I guess 15 posts is a mile away.

2:03 PM  
Blogger Sean said...

We can narrow the gap easily enough.

2:04 PM  
Blogger Sean said...

It just takes a bit of extra effort.

2:04 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

Now we are down to 10 posts - see how fast that was?

2:04 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Remember in backyard football when someone would be "all-time-quarterback"? I'd like to watch Finescum play Rochambeau as "all-time-receiver".

2:05 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

My bad, only 8

2:05 PM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

We're gonna have to do this without Norm

2:05 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

I'll bet lots of AU fans would sign up to be "all-time-kicker".

2:06 PM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

Bring it on

2:06 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

don't count on me, I'm only an amateur

2:06 PM  
Blogger Sean said...

Findbum reminds me of the older dude in Varsity Blues that got hit in the nuts...

The creepy old bald guy hanging around talking about football like he knows something about it.

2:06 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Well, it's about flippin' time that it was flippin' time!
