Recruiting consolidation

Hey everyone. Thanks for making Sunday the biggest traffic day of the new here here at the HABOTN. My Sunday recruiting story earned twice as many hits as Tim Gayle's story about Alabama's "championship celebration," which I found interesting.

Maybe Alabama's 13th eighth MNC isn't that important.

Anyway, I penned a little recruiting story for today's editions: Tigers make positive impression on two DTs

You hardcore recruitniks like wtc's mom know this stuff already, but I tried to make this story fun. Please have a read.

Dmiller-I agree wit Norm, which isn't often, about the running shoes from a high end store. I buy a new pair after about 350 miles or so. Also, I purchased a sole insert. I remove the insert that comes with the shoe and put the others in. They have worked great for me.

The halhigdon site is very good. I have used it for training purposes for the 1/2 and full marathons I have run.

I like elliptical machines.

Running on a treadmill, for whatever reason, makes my hips hurt. I probably have bad posture .. . or maybe I'm a little too heavy.

Either way, I'd rather hit the Cybex® Arc Trainer. That's what I'm talkin' about.

Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Thanks, MJT.

FYI: I spend $100 per pair on my shoes, Asics Nimbus. They last me a year. I had a legit footwear expert size me up and he determined that Asics was best for me. Never heard for Asics before that.

So ... that's all I wear now.

FYI: i sell Asics & New Balance shoes. never pay full retail. ever. u know how to find me.

I wait until they go from $129 to $99, but I'll certain holla.

I'm almost ready for a new pair, in fact.

9:41 AM  
Blogger wtc said...

Asics makes some great shoes. I like them. Saucony has some lightweight shoes, but can strain your knees as they do nothave enough cushion, IMO. I now have a pair of New Balance. They are fantastic for a 'heavy' runner. I am considered a heavy runner, over 6' and over 200 lbs. Good stability and good tread wear.
My running partner has the Nimbus. He is as tall as me but about 20 lbs lighter. He lieks them alot.

I got $80 Asics (gel 2.0 or something?) and they feel 1,000 times better than the $140 New Balances I got last. I have plantar fasciitis issues in both feet. Normally I have to wear special insoles, but I don't even need them in my Asics. Good arch support and all that.

Side note: I developed plantar fasciitis couple of years ago from running on a treadmill. Treadmills are evil.

Miller - I'm not familiar with that brand. I've run through at least 5 pair of Mizuno running shoes (I forget the model) and I'd just bought some Brooks before I was "medically redshirted" from running after my surgery. I also agree with wtc about the inserts.

I have heel problems.... a year or so ago, in a softball game, I injured my heel on my left foot. (crushed the padding and had a slight fracture in the bone)... It is kinda healed up (no pun... ok, yes pun)... but still gives me fits from time to time.

Blogger Eddie said...

Love the Running talk.

I have Asics and absolutely love them. I was sized up for them and with my bad knees, they are perfect in the cushioning they provide. I am switching completely over to Asics now. The other shoe recommended was Brooks... I had never heard of them before, so I'm curious to hear how you like them Norm.

Also, I love the elliptical machine, but only really good ones. The one at my gym (Life Fitness 95X)is the best for me and if I go to other gyms, usually avoid them and stick with the treadmill.

I hit the elliptical machine usually 7 Days a week on top of my running. I'm addicted to it. I'm sure running longer distances would be easy on me if I cut back on working out everday, but I love to start out each day burning 1,100 calories. On days I run (Sunday's), I only burn 600 calories so I have some left in the tank later on in the day.

10:02 AM  
Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

Jay G., I prefer the elliptical too, but the gym I go to now doesn't have one. :-( All he has are a couple of treadmills and a stepper. I refuse to use the stepper, so I use the treadmill. Maybe that's why my hip always bothers me...

10:05 AM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

I just bought a pair of Mizuno Wave 12's, and I like them so far, I'm a little concerned that they won't have enough padding on longer runs, but I rarely run over 5 miles anyway. My last running shoes were high end Asics and had more padding,and had every intention of buying another pair, but I found a great deal on the Mizunos and the Wave 12 is what my sisters ex had recommended (he is at UF on a XC scholarship). So far I like the lighter feel of the Mizunos.

10:05 AM  
Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

oops, I meant arc trainer!

10:06 AM  
Blogger Norm said...

Miller - I also agree about the treadmills and avoid them if possible. If you're training indoors, go with the elliptical if one is available. We have a pretty decent treadmill in the basement and I'll use it for convenience or weather purposes but usually I'm running outside. Other than that, you ought to have some decent starting advice.

oh, we sell Mizuno too. i've had 3 pair of running shoes from them and been pretty happy. of course, i never run more than 5 miles at a time either.

the best shoes i ever had were Brooks i got from a running specialty store in lexington, ky. they were fantastic, but expensive.

Miller/Wake - Mizuno Waves are the models I've predominately used, I just couldn't remember the Wave part earlier. You should plan on replacing whatever you ultimately choose after 300 - 400 miles running on them.

10:27 AM  
Blogger Norm said...

Miller, likely they'll never know. I'd just recommend using the specialty store for advice on your first couple of pairs until you've settled on something that works for you. The specialty store near me is actually pretty comparably priced to the larger box retailers nearby. No idea how they compare to Hottie Scottie though. FWIW as I recall, I think I went away from Mizuno for Brooks on this most recent purchase because the Brooks felt slightly lighter, the overall comfort and support was almost identical. The price point between the two was pretty comparable too.

Miller - I'll tell you this, I'm not one of those who love running. Not even close. I don't enjoy it while I'm doing it at all but I'm always glad I did it when I finish. I like tracking my progress and seeing improvements from one outing to another on a given route. But typically while I'm running I'm thinking about how much further I have to go and how long it'll take me.

Between my senior year of HS and my sophmore year of college (when I was in the best shape of my life)... I ran religiously. One of my best friends ran XC at West Alabama and I trained/ran with him during the summers.... we were running 15-17 miles per day... I was never one that loved the running part, but I did feel better...
That was nearly 10 years and about 60 lbs ago....

CH=B...

Clay Travis who wrote the book last year on UT football was on JOX a few minutes ago. He said Kiffin should be very concerned. My question is if everybody knew all this before he left..then why wasn't it reported?

As far as how I ended up here. I used to read ITAT...One night in the 2008 season Jay's blog was linked over there. I followed the link and happened to arrive during a campfire. I was hooked shortly thereafter. I do like being the oddball at times so it was a good fit.

As far as the 38,000. I think it was a good turnout with the weather situation....Since when did Auburn fans start paying attention to Finebaum's opinion? :-P

Alzheimer's is a terrible disease. My great grandmother suffered with it. It is harder on the family than it is on the person with it...but it is frustrating for them early on in the progression of the disease because they can't do all the things they once could.

I think Nancy Reagan probably said it best about the disease when she called it the "long goodbye."

11:53 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

So what did Kiffin do now?

11:55 AM  
Blogger michael said...

FSJ - I think it is pretty obvious why accusations are just now coming out about Kiffin. The reason UT people who might have "known" things didn't say anything while he was there was because they wanted to protect UT football. Now they are mad at Kiffin, so it is time to throw him under the bus. Count Clay Travis in that boat. The guy has been a Kiffin lover this last fall, and all of a sudden he has a ton of ammo for an anti-Kiffin article right after Kiffin announced he was leaving.

People hide things when it helps the team they are fans of.

Note: I have no idea if the Kiffin stuff is true, just commenting on how it makes sense that it is just now coming out.

12:14 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

I read an article about a new method for detecting Alzheimer's not long ago. The method was something that could easily be done at regular eye exams. They put something in the eye that was suppose to allow the optician to detect the deterioration in the brain. The most amazing thing is they claimed they could detect Alzheimer's 20 years before the symptoms would appear, which would allow early preventative measures. The bad thing would be, would you want to know you had Alzheimers 20 years before your symptoms would develop?

Tennesee has nobody to blame but Tennessee. Kiffikin was just being Kiffikin. It is like blaming a fish for swimming. Al Davis told Tennessee Kiffikin would screw them. Kiffikin screwed them. Why would a Tennessee fan be surprised?

Cincytiger - after you've had your new elliptical for a month, let me know if I should buy that brand. Though in all honesty, I can't picture myself buying (and certainly not using) exercise equipment.

Miller - just find the shoes that work for you. A specialty store should watch you run a bit before they suggest a few likely selections for you then let you try those on and run a bit in those for you to make your choice. You're not buying a $50 pair of Converse, you're investing in your feet, knees and lower back. As I mentioned earlier, my particular running specialty store of choice is competitively priced with the big box retailers. But, you might be well-served to determine the shoes for you and then check with Hottie Scottie or someplace else online and maybe save a few $. Either way, if both wtc and I agree that you (or any runner) needs to go on and spend a bit more for shoes it must be legit. If two hotties say it, it must be true right?

FWIW, I've yet to spend more than $120 on a single pair of shoes for running. Now; adding the shoes, replacement insoles and other accessories and I'm in the $200 ballpark but I don't have to buy those other items every time I buy shoes.

FSJ, Mal Moore looks like he's thinking, "WTH is wrong with this guy???" LOL

I have spent that much on my Birkenstocks, but can't run in them worth a crap. Go figure.

al davis was right!

i just wanted to be able to say i said that and not sound like an idiot myself. i may never get the chance to type those words again.

Small twin engine plane just crashed down the road from me. Looks like the pilot try to land in an open area.

Miller - let me also add this last bit, if you're just getting started, you're probably good with whatever is already in your closet. Once you get to the point where you're running 3+ miles consistently multiple times per week, then I think you need to look at investing in some genuine running shoes. That's my opinion and that's how I did it. I started out running with some run-of-the-mill Saucony's that I already had and I thought they were alright. Once I spent the $ on my first Mizuno Wave pair, it was like the difference between night and day.

Kathy that is awful. You aren't too far from the Airport are you?

2:51 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

I agree with Norm's last statement. I just used my run of the mill New Balance shoes and when I started consistently hitting the 3 Mile mark per run, I got fitted into my current shoe. I'm glad I approached it that way.

Blogger Kathy said...

Digger, I'm very close to the airport. The 2 onboard the plane are confirmed dead. No one of the ground have been reported injured.

should AU just a-bomb the bball program and hire charles to coach the team?

at best it will be some winning, a higher profile for AU bball, some street cred and be a media disaster (kiffykinesque tm if you will). and maybe set the next coach to take it to a new level. you have to admit barkley opening the new arena would be interesting.

at worst it will be a media disaster of epic proportions probably leading to charles calling AU racist and disassociating himself and AU on probation. so really not any worse off than it is now.

charles is the avenue to make the money back on the new arena quickly and generate fan and national media interest. you just hope there is something to build on in the future when he blows up and hope it happens later rather than sooner.

No offense Steve, but if crazy Al Davis told me the sun was coming up tomorrow, I might plan on bringing a flashlight outside during the day.

Just because he was right once, doesn't mean people should heed his warnings.

I believe WTC and his wife are designing a type of running shoe that will revolutionize athletic foot wear.

They are called ...

FOOT SOFAS.

If Al Davis trashes your character, to me, that says something:)

Glad to hear this: "Gus MalzahnAuburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn told a search firm helping Louisiana Tech find a new head football coach that he's not interested in that job and will remain with the Tigers. "

Kathy - Jet has it on good authority that Malzahn will be with AU for three years. Or so he has written. I'm certainly not going to question him.

Gus had nice things to say about Auburn and Chizik.

I wouldn't blame Gus for leaving at the end of next season. If someone walks up to you with a check for $2 Million, would you be willing to move?
