Ken Adams signs elsewhere

Hey everyone. Former Auburn signee Ken Adams, a defensive lineman originally from Enterprise High, will play at LSU beginning next season. He signed with Les Miles and Co. earlier today.

He spent the past two seasons at Copiah-Lincoln C.C. in Mississippi.

The Tigers worked hard to make sure Adams re-signed with them. Tennessee did the same thing. Ultimately, though, it was LSU who seized command of the situation.

Is that a blow to the Tigers' recruiting effort? It depends. Auburn could use some prét-a-porter (ready to wear) defensive linemen right now. On the other hand, it has a few good ones committed and is in the running for at least two more major recruits at that position.

The top remaining guy? Looks like Corey Lemonier from suburban Miami.

Auburn can have up to 30 new guys come in.

Five enroll in January. 22 are commits out of which 1 or 2 are questionable in grades or gray shirt prospects.

However this is a very small senior class. I don't think Auburn will have room to sign 25 (while staying under 85)

According to a rough calculation six guys would need to go to make room for 25.

Thanks for the reply on the other thread, Jay G. Please tell any of the uat beat writers that you might see that coosa says they are all a bunch of chickens. Exposing that would make a great story and generate a lot of publicity, but they are all too afraid of saban's wrath to risk it.

By Aeronaut: "According to a rough calculation six guys would need to go to make room for 25."

Only six leaving due to grades, injuries or malcontent over the off season would be an unusually small number. I don't think we'll have a problem enrolling 5+25 and staying under the 85 limit this year.

Blogger Brother Jet said...

Coosa ...

That Chette story was nothing but vendetta. Graduates of the Auburn University journalism program hate Lowder with a passion, and any opportunity to embarrass him or Auburn (because of him) would not be avoided because he spearheaded the effort to merge the journalism program with the commuications program.

That's why Selena Roberts should have never, ever been able to write that story.

Conversely, the opposite holds when UAT adjunct professor Rick Bragg gets to write a tongue bath of a cover story on Nick Saban 18 months for Sports Illustrated.

Why is the media in the general sense held in such low esteem? It's no wonder.

This was their response:

However, Alabama was the only one that gave us permission to print at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

Blogger wtc said...

Not sure where AU will rank with Rivals after signing day, but there are whispers if these guys sign, it could be a #1 class. However, rankings are subjective due tohow different folks are rated. (Example: CJ Moseley is listed as the #7 player in Alabama. He is listed at #99 or so on Rivals overall player ranking. AU has the #3,#5,#6 players in Alabamacommittes. Only one of them is rated aheaded of Moseleyon the Rivals 100 list. Not sure how that happens but it does.)

Kathy-i have heard rumors about Ziemba just testing the waters. He is not a 1st rounder, but is thought of as a draft eligible player. My perosnal opinion is he should stay and improve upon his discipline. Otherwise, he is a good blocker.

The key part of this recruiting class in my opinion is the linebackers and then offensive line. We seemed to have filled in the linebackers, but Eric Mack on the offensive line is probably the biggest need we have.

We will likely be better next season, but 2011 will be a big concern. We will graduate 4 of 5 offensive linemen. We must have the guys to replace them in this recruiting class.

I'm in a bad mood anyway, so this is the perfect time to ask this question.

One of uat writers for the bammerham news wrote a column a few days ago essentially saying that sec fans should hush about a play-off, that we have reached the point where the sec champion is sure to go to the BCS championship game anyway.

My response is that is true ONLY if the winner is one of predetermined anointed media darlings. Suppose the following had happened:

Every AU game goes just as it happened, except Todd completes the TD pass to Fanin against KY, and we win that one. Then Bynes intercepts the pass right in his hands against GA, and we win that one. And then suppose the refs call that obvious pick play against uat and we win that one.

Also suppose the TN kicked doesn't get injured and gets his kick up against uat and they win the game.

OK, a lot of ifs there, but just suppose. AU would go to Atlanta instead of uat, and we would have still had all of the glaring weaknesses and lack of depth. But suppose somehow we beat FL - would we have gone to the BCS game at 11-2?

I'd say not a chance. Anybody disagree?

My point is that the bammer writer is wrong and seeing the world through crimson glasses.

Blogger SteveFC said...

coosa, that LSU BCS appearance was bizarre. I suspect voter drinking in that one. And no, I don't think an 11-2 Auburn team should go to the BCSNC if you have undefeated teams like Cinci, Boise State, and TCU. You may give a one loss team a nod if they lost to a quality opponent, but not two losses.

Steve, I agree again, I don't think an 11-2 AU should have gone this year.

I'm not sure that if this AU team had somehow pulled out multiple miracles and gone 13-0 that we would have made it over Cincinnati. The espn guys would have pounded us continuously over the fact that we had 3 linebackers and were so bad on special teams.

Lookee at JGT, dropping the odd bon mot in his Ken Adams post.

Reminds me of the best movie review I ever read. About 15 years ago there was a Robert Altman film about the fashion industry, "Ready To Wear". The film had been called "Prét-a-Porter" right up until its release, but the studio decided to change it to the English translation to avoid any confusion amongst the middlebrow American audience.

The New Yorker summed up its lukewarm review of the film thusly: "As with many Altman films, all the pieces are there, but ultimately the film lacks a certain, I-know-not-what."

Big thanks for the upgrade to FTH, and many kudos for all you do JGT. Keep the drivel coming!!!

I think that if $aban want more money, Bama will give him whatever he wants.

The only reason for Saban to go to Dallas would be for some sick ego resaon to pick fights with the meddlin' Jerry Jones and win. I don't think Saban has that kind of ego. He is more inwardly focussed on perfection than matching wits and ego. I hope I'm wrong.

Nevertheless, I like what we're doing and Bama/Saban had better watch out ..we'll be coming after them.

Hey JGT / Kristina....

Just tried to join the Facebook group states the we need to give you our HABOTN user name.

Mine is "Dear Leader"... please do not spread that around. I would hate for Fidel, Evo or Hugo to find out what I am doing in my spare time.

365: Man, I have no defense. The people here at the newspaper are in two basic camps.

a.) They're pro-Alabama, so they want to believe that it's 13 championships.

b.) They're pro-book sales, so they want to cater to the delusional Alabama fans who believe their program has won 13 championships.

So that's the situation.

JGT, Thanks for making me a notable newcomer. I am honored. Thanks for making the blog a welcoming place.

Thanks to yodaddy334, my best friend, college roomie, and the guy who sent me the link to the HABOTN. I have been hooked ever since.

Thanks to all the hotties for making this place fun to post, and for making this a place much more welcoming and friendly unlike some blogs I have post on.

Micheal said in the earlier post that the new class looks like a Tubs recruiting class. Well, I feel like a two star recruit to this team. Hopefully with a little coaching up from the HOTTIES I will develop and become a first rounder like Ben Grubbs.

Was Target to classy for a Bammer trophy celebration?

If Bama had lost last night would they have SEC championship trophy celebrations at Dollar General

Man where did everyone go? Scott choc I was just asking for a job in the gump to get the heck away from bammerham. I would love a job in Auburn, but there isn't much to choose from. If anyone knows of a distribution/transportation management position let me know.

Blogger Phormerly Phred said...

You know, I've been an Auburn man for a pretty long time, all my conscious life actually. Notice I didn't say fan. I said man. There is a difference. I believe in Auburn, and I truly do love it. I really do. But for all of the wonderful things about being an Auburn man, when it comes to sports, with a handful of brief periods as the exception, we mostly have mostly thought and acted like losers. "We don't worry about stars. We coach them up." That's loser talk, easily recognized for the load of crap that it is. Sometimes, every now and then, that philosophy has produced some exceptional teams. But most of the time it has not. Winners go after winners. Losers go after whoever is left. Good recruiting builds championship teams, and quickly. I offer last night as an example.

I say all of that as a prologue to this statement. I love our coaching staff. I love them because, with the exception of Chizik, and his experience coming during one of those brief periods I brought up earlier, they didn't know a single damn thing about Auburn before they got here. They didn't know that we don't go after the best recruits because they aren't "Auburn men". They thought we went after the best recruits, coached them up, and turned them into Auburn men. So far so good. It appears they haven't yet been scolded yet for doing it everybody else's way. Good for them. Good for us.

Our staff is going to produce a great class this year. They are going to do it next year too. It will work like magic. Again, I offer last night as my example. Two #1 recruiting classes and a MNC in the third year.

War Eagle, and if you see any of the coaches, please don't tell them that going after four and five stars is not how we do things at Auburn. I'd prefer they didn't know that.

Hey CH=B=claim13, you interested in Atlanta for work? Traffic sucks, but there are very few Bama fans here (we met our quota and shipped the rest back to Bammerham), and there are a lot of Auburn Men and Women. Anyway, if you see this, send me an e-mail to gaines.harrell@gmail.com.

Good morning, Hotties!
I am in Auburn and it is wonderful! Unfortunately, we will be painting and cleaning carpets at the student condo we have for sale (shameless plug) so we won't get to go to the game. I can't wait until we can move here!!

Congrats to all the hotties making moves toward the ring of fire.

So far, I haven't seen a single bammie, but I haven't been to Wal-Mart :)

Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

Ran into my first pair of bammers yesterday. They had to give us a Roll Tide when we walked into Beef's last night, and then came over to our table to show us a picture of a Elephant mounting a Longhorn Steer. The only thing I got out of that picture is that bammers are A) into homosexual relationships and B) get off on pictures of bestiality.

Blogger Jay 'W. not Tate' said...

hey, hey, I'm a "Notable Newcomer"...gotta start somewhere eh?

As for Adams, I'm with the side that thinks Auburn cooled on him. With only 5 spots open, I've heard the same names everywhere as having claim to those spots:

Lattimore, Lemonier, Mack, Whitaker, and Thornton...not to mention nobody knows what Seastrunk will do.

7:49 AM  
Blogger Norm said...

Cincy - c'mon now, if you've been to WalMart, even if it's in Auburn, you've seen bammer. Maybe they're smart enough to be incognito at that particular store, but they're in WalMart, of this much you can be certain.

So it's Saturday, it's too blasted cold for the future 4* and I to do anything outside. I'm not too much of a basketball fan and he's sure not. Once my hot wife makes it downstairs to join us boys, I'm sure she'll have some wonderful suggestions on what we can do.

7:50 AM

Oh, I see I misread Cincy's post. Please forgive me, I'll blame it on the eye thing.

No problem, Norm. I am actually headed to Wal-Mart momentarily to get carpet cleaner. I'm sure I will see a bammie or two there. It is 19 degrees in Auburn. Brrrrr!

I'll be back later, have to take my wife's car to the dealer. Then I am all alone till the am with the future womens 4*. Wish me luck!

Does this mean I am an official Hottie?????

Told my hubby that I AM a Hottie! His reply, "Pfffffft!"

Then again we have been married 35 years..............


Seriously, I don't make many notable posts but I'm always here getting my Auburn fix.

And thank you all for making me laugh a whole lot..it is such good medicine for what ails ya!

Thanks Jay G., 'preciate it! And as much as I love Auburn thanks for keeping it real for us.

missinit,
How are you feeling? Continuing to recover nicely I hope.

8:16 AM  
Blogger CH=B=claim13 said...

One lat comment. We all need to email Auburn and let them know how upset we will be if they try to display our MNC trophy (you know the one we WILL win shortly) in Wals Marts (spelling on purpose). I would be horrified. I go to Wal-Mart from time to time but I am not a Walmartian.

8:17 AM  
Blogger missinit said...

Thanks for asking cincy!

I had one small bump in the road but my doctor told me Thursday that I would have to find something else to die from cause it wasn't gonna be my thyroid. I'm holding her to it........

I will have one iodine treatment to zap any residual thyroid tissue in February. Then I will be through.

Unfortunately I still cannot talk very well....said it may take three months. Had to stretch the vocal chord nerve(s) while in surgery and they are evidently very persnickity and are mad at me.

Thyroid surgery is virtually painless but man it left me exhausted....guess it just takes time!

Anyway I am an Auburn woman so I will survive,....foe show !
