Talking more with: Demetruce McNeal

Hey everyone. I gave myself a short cooling-off period after being criticized for providing too much content, so I hope this post isn't arriving too quickly.

I wrote a story in today's editions about two of the Tigers' early commitments, Demetruce McNeal and LaDarius Owens, and how they helped get the ball rolling.

My conversation with McNeal traveled well beyond what you read in the story.

So here's some other stuff we discussed.

  • On what drew him to Auburn: ``I committed to Auburn because they needed help at safety and that's what I want to play. They came to me a while back, said I was their guy and that's how it went down."

  • On if it was tough to buy into what Auburn was selling: ``Not at all. I knew a lot of these coaches before now. Coach Trooper Taylor, I knew him going to back to Tennessee. I knew Thigpen when he was at North Carolina. When Auburn hired these coaches after the coaching change, I knew we were up the way up. I had no doubt about it. I saw the group of coaches they had and it was simple -- if they wanted me, I was there. And that's what happened."

  • On his lack of high-school stats, which includes one career interception: ``I know! People won't throw at me. I had two passes thrown my way all year. They didn't catch either one, of course, but teams just don't throw much anymore. You see a lot of Wing-T in Atlanta. That makes me play up more, give that run support. Some (college) teams saw what I was doing and wanted me to play linebacker, but that's not me. I'm a safety. I want to have that chance to play pass defense. I want to be a complete safety."

  • On if Daren Bates' development affected McNeal's decision: ``Yeah, I saw how they worked him and that was a good thing for me. They'll play the guy who shows he can play -- not who is older."

  • On Auburn's overall recruiting effort: ``I've been shocked lately. They keep adding great players. We all know about Cameron Newton. He's the best quarterback out there as far as I know. When they got him, I think that really added a lot. I was like: Wow. Now we're picking up guys who are de-committing from other schools. They're all coming to Auburn."

  • On which recruits he communicates with: ``I talk with (Antonio) Goodwin and (Jonathon) Mincy at least every week, I'd say. I know we're going after the DT from Warner Robins (Jeffrey Whitaker), but I haven't talked with him yet. We've been talking about giving him a call, seeing what's up. You'd be crazy not to take an Auburn offer right now."

  • On any awkwardness involving his brother, DeMarco, not having an Auburn offer: ``Nah, he's got some really good offers. He had an Auburn offer back during the summer, but they pulled it back. He's looking at South Carolina and West Virginia right now. You never know who might pop up. I've been doing what I can to help him get some scholarships. He's a good player."

I think what sets us above al.com is that rather than have our disputes stay in the realm of "barners are stoopid" and "bammers are stoopid" is that there actually is a depth to the dislike some of the people have for each other around here. I like depth!

Woohoo! Selective editing. I like it. Especially when it benefits me. Well, figuratively at least.

2:14 PM

I came in second place in the spelling bee one year. I lost on the word "borometer". Even now, I am getting red squigglies because I don't know how to spell it. My opponent got "cactus." WHAT THE HELL?! HOW ARE "CACTUS AND "BOROMETER" IN THE SAME DIFFICULTY LEVEL?!

I also came in second in the geography bee. I don't remember what I missed in that one, but I did get an inflatable globe for coming in second, which was neat.

However you spell it, it's pronounced "thermometer". The more you know...

bigdaddy, I try to make this a reservoir of information. Some of it is newspaper-worthy. Some is too small for that scope.

Old-school HOTTIES know I don't deal well with complaining about content here. It's free. You have no financial obligation to this place. To complain about the free content distributed here is, to me, disrespectful and bogus to the nth degree.

I hold the HOTTIES to a high standard. With that said, 99% of them exceed that standard daily. A few don't.

I'll never be critical of too much content, the more we get here the better.

I've seen Lache to Baylor, Auburn, LSU and Oregon all in the last few hours. This kid is all over the board as far as what he may be telling people. I say Baylor myself. Makes sense with how things have gone over the last several weeks.

Stone? Yeah. I know that's a stretch, but Auburn gets the last visit. These coaches know how to create a production.

Oh, and don't let them see you drinking. At all. He had to go through some intense alcohol counseling to get in because he was honest during his psych eval. They started watching his house, and two parties later, they labeled him an alcoholic.

Why would you want to drive a G20 now? The G's have gone from 140 bhp in the G20 to around 300 in the G37. I'd say they've improved the line.

JayGT: Regarding Auburn/UAT battling over Stone and Coleman. I know both of these guys are highly coveted, which alone is sufficient reason for their pursuit, but is the subtext a grudge match by Saban to "prove" (to the REC) that he can still "dominate" AU when he wants? And perhaps Chizik & Co. wanting to make a statement that those days are over?

3:02 PM

Harrison - quit your whining. I've driven from north of Atlanta (north by about 30 minutes on a good day) a number of times just to meet some folks at The Hamburger King.

BTW, I think I recall what it is you do, and I bet you benefit from my employer.

McKesson, that's just for you. Don't tell anyone else.

Blogger Harrison said...

We don't use McKesson, but I fill in at an independent store in Tuskegee that does.

4:27 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Mckesson... isn't that the name of that whorehouse in Atlanta? What's going on here?

MJT you weren't supposed to read that. That was just between Harrison and I (or 'me', whichever is proper).

Seastrunk to Oregon. Done deal.

Good for him. Hope he finds what he seeks in Ducktown.

Norm, whenever you can't tell if it is "I" or "me", then just talk in the third person and say "Norm". You then sound important and at the same time are grammatically correct.

Oregon does have some crazy hot cheerleaders.

Blogger Secondaid said...

Well, at least that's over. Wish the kid luck at Oregon.

4:32 PM  
Blogger michael said...

I think he seeks pirate treasure. Good luck with that in Oregon, Lache!

Blogger Norm said...

MJT, thanks. Just another reason Norm loves him some HABOTN, it's educational. And as we all know, "knowledge is power!"

4:33 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

Time for Norm to take it to the house. You kids play nicely with each other.

Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

What weight class will he fight in at Oregon?

4:35 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

Ok. Norm, next time I work in Tuskegee, put a King burger in a tote and ship it to me. Wait, send 3 for my helpers too.
Thanks

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.
