Seastrunk headed for Oregon

Hey everyone. Texas tailback Lache Seastrunk, who once was thought to be one of Auburn's top targets, today announced plans to play at Oregon.

Seastrunk attended Big Cat Weekend last summer. He endeared himself to the Auburn-hearted by taking a swipe at Alabama coach Nick Saban during the trip. He mugged for an Opelika-Auburn News cameraman who filmed BCW festivities at Toomer's Corner, pointing at LaDarius Owens and saying: ``Tell Nick Saban he's S.O.L."

Anyway, Auburn seemed to cool on Seastrunk after Arkansas tailback Michael Dyer committed in early November. It appears the Tigers believe South Carolina tailback Marcus Lattimore will collaborate more effectively with Dyer.

Just thought you might like to know ... the rest of the story.

From the last thread which I once again seemed to post after a new one was created:

Just for knowledge sake, there's a new place in Vinings (for the folks that gto or are around Atlanta) called The Burger Club. They serve the 8 pound burgersaurus. supposedly it serves 8.

Glad to finally get to read some of the blog after actually having to work... AGAIN. Working is really getting in the way of my HABOTN time.

Nicely done, Hoop.

JG ...Thanks for the props, but I was just funning. I only follow 'cruitin' on the HABOTN and have never commented on Seastrunk.

Of course the general HABOTN opinion was Oregon, so ..I got that going for me.

Yep, well done. Jay G, did you find your ice cream hookup in Byrnes?

I'm not heartbroken that Lache isn't coming...in fact I posted earlier today I would be shocked if he did, but it is also very good for us that he did not decide to attend LSU.

I broke the cardinal rule and listened to 5 minutes of fbomb today. I came in on the tail end of him dissing Jonna Chizik, but I didn't hear what it was about. Something about him running into her at Auburn after the AU - AL game. Anyone shed any light on this?

5:16 PM

Cincy, you can read about it here:

JGT, I love your recruiting articles. No such thing as too much info.

5:24 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

Thanks, Kathy. This happened after the Iron Bowl and we're just not hearing about it? Sounds fishy to me.

5:31 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I did not see this take place.

I find it plausible. Jonna is a strong-minded and outspoken person. If she doesn't like you, it won't be a secret.

As far as if Finebaum deserved it, well, you know my feelings about his on-air work. My reasons for loathing him professionally have nothing to do with an alleged bias against Auburn, though.

5:31 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

He's a mean-spirited person on the air. I don't like it.

I'll bet cash money that someday he'll regret having been so mindlessly aggressive toward people he barely knows.

5:33 PM

Anyway, I have completed 25 signee capsules so far. I haven't yet done DJ Howard and I'm still trying to learn more about Ryan White. He's an enigma to me.

5:34 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

I heard part of the segment with Gentry Estes today. I would not call Estes an unbiased reporter, which is ok, he writes about the tide. But, fbomb even twisted what Estes was saying about recruiting to make it sound like he was saying negative things about Auburn, which he wasn't. Fbomb just kept pushing, It was kind of sick.

5:37 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

Jay,
When are you going to post those capsules? As the players commit? I am not going to have access to a computer during the day on Wednesday, will you tweet when we get commitments? Or is that overload?

5:39 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

Have you not done DJ because you don't think he is going to commit to Auburn?

5:39 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

I think it's funny that Mrs. Chizik and Mrs. Malzan got all over Finescum. He deserves everything he gets. It was the Center Point town idiot that brought up the story. I though Finescum did ok at not bashing them too much, but the idiot just kept on.

"He's a mean-spirited person on the air. I don't like it."

I feel the same way. Most of the sports radio personalities in B'ham favor UAT, but he's the only one who seems to be a flat-out jerk. I can't listen to him.

I agree, SC. I listen to Dunaway and Brown quite often and while Dunaway is openly pro-bama, he is very respectful of Auburn.

I'm going to South Carolina for Lattimore's announcement. I'm hoping to get back in Auburn by 10 a.m. or so on Wednesday.

Jay G is a hardcore recruitnik! Awesome!

I will read whatever you write from there as long as it is not too in depth.

5:51 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

I don't mind D&B. You really can't expect UAT fans to be any more respectful of AU than they are. With that said, I pretty much boycotted all sports radio in B'ham for about 10 days after 1/7. Cincy, have you heard D&B since they teamed up with Lance Taylor? I'm not sure how that's going to work out.

5:52 PM

JGT, are you going to SC because you have inside info?

Have you heard if Savage got his 6th year?

5:56 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

G, are you going to SC because you believe Latt will commit to Au.

5:57 PM  
Blogger chip chip said...

does AU go back to seastrunk if lattimore falls through?

i don't think it comes to that, but that is not a bad fallback if you could pull it off.

6:01 PM  
Blogger michael said...

wtc's mom told Jay G he wouldn't be disappointed if he went there.

6:04 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

Scott,
I'm not wild about the merge with LT. I think the Roundtable was about to go under and that is why they had D&B move over with him. I think they do some segments that D&B aren't real comfortable with.

6:05 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I am going to SC because Lattimore is a huge story -- either way.

Savage won't learn his fate for a while longer. Tez Doolittle applied in 2007 and received notification in mid March.

6:06 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Chip- No chance they go back to Seastrunk. Apparently according to some in the know he wasn't a good fit at Auburn and he was using an in-between that resulted in Auburn backing off of him after Big Cat Weekend. Seastrunk hasn't been in Auburn's plans for quite awhile it appears.

6:08 PM

I am actually the HABOTN in-between for this guy named Harold. I pretty much write whatever he tells me to write.

Cincy, I can't believe you broke the cardinal rule! Shame on you! ;-)

Kathy, is there any way I could read that article without signing up?

Why were they talking about that today anyway? It was two months ago.

6:14 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Me neither, Cincy. It seems like a bad marriage. I figured it might be a cost-cutting thing, though.

6:15 PM  
Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

I, like the rest of you, am not the least bit upset about Seastrunk going to Oregon. Auburn has Fannin, McCalebb, Dyer and possibly Lattimore. Isn't that enough? To me it is.

Jay G, thanks for the write up on McNeal. Too much content? Never! You know we can't get enough when it comes to Auburn!

I am a bit disappointed in your newly announced iPad (Canvas would have been a much cooler name... iPad is too close to iPod).
The UI is slick, but no multi-tasking, no (adobe)flash, no camera, no usb or optical drive? C'mon!

With that said, it's pretty slick. the iWork programs developed specifically for the iPad look very smooth and robust...

Blogger cincytiger said...

jahg,
Why would he want to go to bama and sit on the bench for 3 years? Don't they have like 49 offensive lineman? And from the recruiting boards he already has an offer from Alabama. Why hasn't he taken it if that is where he's so fired up to go?

7:03 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Yeah, I don't think Coleman is "just waiting" on an offer from UAT. He already had one. He may be waiting to see if anything changes his mind (like an Escalade or something).

7:05 PM  
Blogger jhag said...

It isnt a commitable offer...and sorry for voicing my opinion. Well see what happens

7:06 PM  
Blogger jhag said...

James Stone is ahead of Shon on Alabama's board, if Stone goes to UT Shon goes to BAMA

7:08 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

No, jhag, I appreciate you offering information you are aware of. I just hope it doesn't happen. What is the difference between an offer and a commitable offer? Do schools offer different kinds of offers?

7:09 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

So what do the gurus say about Stone? Sounds like you think he is TN bound.

7:11 PM  
Blogger jhag said...

I mean I dont see why this kid visits a rival school this close to NSD if he isnt interested

7:11 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

I think its more likely that they are making a last ditch effort to take him away from Auburn now that Stone is looking elsewhere. I have seen nothing to show me that Coleman wants to go anywhere but Auburn.

7:12 PM

jhag, stop the 2nd fiddle attitude please.

7:13 PM

What makes you so certain that that's what he'll do? Just curious.

He is the one with the coach who's a big UAT fan, though, isn't he?

7:13 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

You're right, it doesn't make a lot of sense. Unless maybe it is a power thing? He wants them to beg so he can say no thanks? It could happen :)

7:13 PM  
Blogger jhag said...

Well James Stone was considered by most a Bama Lock, then it was a AU/UA battle but now Tennessee is swooping in and he named them his leader. Stone was the top OL on Bama's must get board. Therefore they are now jumping on Shon Coleman in thoughts of losing Stone

7:13 PM  
Blogger jhag said...

He has visited OM, Arky, and now Bama the last few weeks, kinda fishy

7:14 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

You still have to make the assumption that he would rather go to UAT than AU. I think that's far from a given.

7:15 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

jhag, if you were 17/18 and were told you could take 5 free trips, be taken out to eat and treated like a king that you wouldn't go?

He isn't from Alabama so he doesn't understand the rivalry. He is just loving the attention. I could be wrong but I don't think he goes anywhere.

7:15 PM

Maybe he just likes being wined and dined

FWIW:

I have felt, for about a week, that DJ Howard will go to Clemson. The visit to Clemson, W/O telling the coaches did not sit well at all. we probably will lose him.

7:37 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

Coaches visited Coleman today at Olive Branch HS. I hear three coaches showed up. Nutt, Saban, Chizik. Chizik did visit. Coleman is in Ttown tonight. He will get the full court press, as CHB stated, because UA feels James Stone is going to UT. Last I heard, he cancelled his scheduled visit to AU this weekend. Hard to think the UA coaches can change what AU has been working on for 12 months. Remember AU was the first to offer. UA went after his teammate, D Robinson a very big OL, and looked past Coleman. I also recall that Coleman said, last week, that he was 100% AU but he would take his visits. So, even though it is to a rival team, so were the visits to Ole Miss and Arly, and he is going to Miami this weekend, he is doing what he said.

7:42 PM  
Blogger jhag said...

Well I certainly would not visit Tuscaloosa, Alabama...I would go to USC, UCLA, FSU, Oregon, and Hawaii

7:43 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

One other note. I think Saban and much of the staff is on the road, like all coaches at this time, so he probably doesn't get nearly the face time he would normally get for an official.
That is just my opinion. their staff is good, so I know they know what they are doing and will make it a good trip.
I still think he stays with AU.

7:44 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

Haha I think its funny that you put FSU in the midst of USC, Oregon and Hawaii. Tally isn't exactly an exotic location.

7:45 PM

AU has several high profile visitors this weekend. No names just yet, but 3 of the 5 are committed elsewhere. Florida, UGA, and UNC (I think).

I agree with CHB about Coleman. And hasn't he reported for months that he's taking ALL his visits despite being 100% Auburn? The UAT visit has been on the books for months. It's not like this came out of the blue.

Ok, time for me to get in my "the sky is falling on Auburn" mindset.

We could lose Coleman to "those people" if "those people" lose Stone to UT. The coach who reportedly made some claims of "big surprises" for AU yesterday (didn't happen) and/or NSD is the same coach who made that claim about how July 4 2009 was going to be huge and we wouldn't need any fireworks. Well, I hope this next week doesn't come and go like July 4 weekend did.

8:06 PM  
Blogger Turfman said...

P.M. says Coleman did not take the visit to Bama tonight. If he cancels his visit to Miami this weekend then that means trouble. Stone is not ahead of Coleman on anybody's board. If Lattimore commits to SC we keep Howard. Howard has yet to realize he is not a BCS RB. If Lattimore goes to SC we will go hard after Ambles. If Lattimore commits to us, Howard will go to Clemson, then we would take Darius Robinson from Clemson. All of that is only my opinion..no inside info...NOT TO ALL AUBURN FANS..STOP LISTENING TO FINEBALM!!

I don't understand the AU fans that think that just because someone visits another school, that AU is going to lose that recruit... lose the inferiority complex, please.

Turfman-I just read an article from the Clemson site that interviewed Robinson. He was in town this weekend. He says he took the trip because his dad wanted him to and he had no intentions of leaving.
Just thought I would let you know. I knew he was in town. He visited with the faculty. His story with the Clemson guys is different than what actually happened, but that is OK. he says he is 100% to Clemson. (Where have we heard that before) BTW-I was one that thought we had him locked up after this weekend.

Turfman whoa whoa whoa...first of all Stone is ahead of Coleman on Alabama's board ask any knowledgeable Bama fan. Just bc hes rated higher on rivals doesn't mean Alabama doesn't have Stone higher on their board, they evaluate differently.
secondly what does Lattimore going to USCe have anything to do with Ambles?
He announces the day before signing day so it will be hard to go "after" Ambles when we have hours...
Lastly DJ Howard can play RB in a BCS conference, hence kentucky and clemson going hard after him...cmon man

I listened to Fbomb in my travel form the office to the gym today. Thank goodness I stopped at one traffic light. That nut from Centerpoint just came on and started the topic of Mrs. Chizik and Mrs. Malzahn 'attacking' him. With Coach Malzahn and Chizik watching. Supposedly her tirade went on for 20 minutes. it was sort of like the tongue lashing that Gottfried's wife gave him a year ago. To his credit, Fbomb did say that he was not attacked and that she just had some things she wanted to say. Knucklehead caller kept saying she attacked him and both coaches should apologize. Fbomb said he did not think they should and went to break.

jhag, no offense, but your description of the "bama board rankings" sounds much like the convenient excuses we always hear from UAT fans: if the player commits, he was always high; if not, never was. The rank always goes up and down depending on whether they go elsewhere or join the fold.

jhag..Clemson and Kentucky are going after Howard for the same reason we are, he has tons of potential in the defensive backfield. James Stone was an uncommitted prospect which if I'm Bama's coach would make him an easier target than Coleman. I promise you Bama put the full press on Coleman before he committed to Auburn. Coleman is a big step above Stone. As I said before there is not a team in this country who would evaluate these guys and pick Stone. Recruiting Lattimore is not about getting a RB(we have plenty)it's about getting a playmaker. Ambles is the backup plan if we lose Lattimore. Note to Jhag...the coaches know where a player is going WAY before the public...

Turfman being so uninformed with recruiting and making all these claims is interesting. I guess you have the best inside sources around

my inside source is a combination of 3 AU websites who get paid to get inside info. I dont know why I need to validate myself to someone who thinks Coleman will go to Bama. Then again your source is the Bama recruiting board so why am I even trying?

I began feeling nauseous around 9p eastern. I'm not sure why. I suppose it could have something to do with recruiting, but I'm not sure that's it.

9:12 PM  
Blogger jhag said...

never looked at a bama board in my life...
Clemson is recruiting DJ just for RB. Ambles at this point isn't a back up plan. If he commits then we take one less DT (Which right now appears to be an in state 3*). The coaches have been adamant about taking two RBs this signing class so Lattimore falls into that category.
Shon Coleman is Bama's backup plan for James Stone
get some.

9:24 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

Norm, ITT's coach is on the hot seat, its never a good idea to go to a school who could change coaches while your there. Plus I hear they don't even take you to the scrip club on visits.

9:26 PM

And we all know it ain't no sin to go to the scrip clubs. Recruits just like to be rebellion.

I was unaware that yet another coach was on the hot seat. I appreciate the clarification. You made a very valid point.

Be honest with everyone..you have no clue what you are talking about.

jhag-the older you get, that desire will go away. Most of the time I don't care who disagrees with me. It is my opinion and it works for me. That is the way I look at it. If we all liked the same thing, Baskin Robbins would have been out of business a long time ago.

Both of you had good points. You each just feel strongly about your point. Problem is, none of us will ever know, unless Homer Tate does an exclusive with the coaches from the conference to tell why they went after certain guys and not others. :)

All of you off to bed. If you are here, this is what I hear. Chizik talked to coleman. He is coming to AU. Now, these are 17/18 yr olds, so a new car and cash may change his mind, but I understand he is AU bound.
Lattimore, now that one is changing. He is getting BIG time pressure from all fronts in SC to stay in SC. He may cave, he may not. Use to be he was a high probability to AU, now not sure.

AU. That's good news, if he is fully recovered. I say he loses a step of speed, so he moves back to safety.

Good morning, Hotties! Happy Thursday!!

I have to disagree about Finescum's radio show being like a trainwreck. I have NO desire whatsoever to listen. A vast majority (I'd say probably 99%) of the callers are idiots - that includes both Auburn and UAT fans. I do agree with Jay G in that basically he is a BIG JERK. It's purely entertainment, you say? Well, then I guess we all have our own opinion of what is entertaining. Like my brother said about the fact that my brothers' political views and mine are almost completely different, "Diversity is what makes this world great."

AUfan-The news about Savage is coming from a facebook site about AU recruiting. One o the mods usually has very goof info, but I have nto seen nor heard anything official yet. I find it hard to believe the NCAA would rule so early onthisone, but who knows how that group works.

Experts will tell you the holidays are the most stressful time of the year. As we get closer to Recruitmas, it's not surprising that we're sniping at each other.

But, as I said decades ago, it is Morning in America, and it is wonderful see our coaching staff in the mix for so many outstanding players. In time, we can truly be that Shining Program on a Hill -- a beacon for all to see.m

Thanks for the info, Sponge. I hope Lattimore gets some distance and time to think things over. If he gets some room, Auburn's chances have to be excellent. I mean, he'll languish in USC (with or w/out Spurrier there).

I cannot listen to Fbomb anymore. He is like a propoganda radio station for Bama right now.

I am okay with PF when he is talking by himself, because he kind of gives the needle to idiots. I have big issues when he allows that Shane guy to act like he is a objective journalist, then call people like Charles Goldberg homers. I find it repulsive. It
is borderline defamation of character/slander.

Some of this stuff people like Shane posts is close to being fiction. You watch, one of these days someone like him is going to get challenged in the legal system and have the book thrown at them.

Pancakes--that would be good!

I agree with Jay's take on Finebaum. He is really mean-spirited at times. I don't like how he demeans sincere callers who did him the honor of calling into his usually-lame show. He can demean the hired village fools if he wants, but he should leave others alone. I do enjoy some of the interviews he does.

I think he and some of the political "entertainers" on the air have done a lot to coarsen public discourse. Demeaning, shouting, talking over other speakers. Just gets on my nerves.
