More on Lattimore

Hey everyone. OK, so my title is a little misleading. I penned a story for Monday's editions of the Advertiser about how National Signing Day is almost here. And I mentioned Marcus Lattimore's name.

Hard-core recruitniks will scoff. I already know about his situation.

OK, so you do.

ALSO: Georgia defensive tackle Jeffrey Whitaker will announce his decision around 1 p.m. CST. I will not be there, but we'll still discuss the issue. It's a modern miracle that we can know without being there.

ALSO: Auburn graduate assistant and former linebacker Travis Williams has released his new single. He's a recording artist on the Major League ENT label, which he co-owns with Quentin Groves. Click here to download "Get Low".

(I downloaded ... and it played fine in iTunes.)

Everywhere I'm looking is saying Whitaker is a lock. Who'd have ever thought Whitaker would be more of a lock on Feb. 1 than Shon "100% Auburn" Coleman...?

DL, when it comes to Recruitmas, I WANT IT ALL!!!

9:14 AM  
Blogger Jay 'W. not Tate' said...

with that said, I do still feel good about Coleman. He said all along he'd go on visits...and has said all along he's 100% Auburn. WTC's mom confirmed as much--saying Coleman called the coaches last night and said he's still 100% Auburn.

Let's hope so!

Jay
I have a request for a story/blog topic. Would it be possible to give an update on current players and their injury status? I read posts here and there from folks on campus who report various players with boots/casts/slings, etc. I'm beginning to think that most of our players end up with some mild to mid grade injuries that they play through, and then defer surgery til this time of year? I'd find that sort of report interesting (I could be the only one though). thanks for all the hard work. Safe travels to Duncan. Holler as you pass through the ATL.

JGT,
You know what they say ":The Big Dogs walk at the End".... i'm back when it counts baby!!!!

9:26 AM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

That's an interesting idea, WDEwg, but Chizik is staunchly against discussing medical issues with anyone in the media. That makes such a story inherently incomplete. See what I mean?

Still, we'll get into this during March.

9:31 AM  
Blogger Comm'r of Flesh Wounds said...

What is this recruiting of which you speak?

9:32 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

I can see it now

T-Will featuring Montae Pitts at next years Grammy's

Blogger Dear Leader said...

Mr. FAH...

I thought it the staement was... unless you are the lead dog, the view never changes???

9:32 AM  
Blogger WDEwg said...

Yeah- that makes sense. I guess even if the player himself passes you in the hall on crutches in a boot, he's probably forbidden by Chizik to discuss.

And you're right, it'll shake out soon enough come March when they either are on the field or "in the tub".

I guess I just didn't realize it seemed to be as commonplace as some would suggest that it is- -the offseason scalpel time, that is.

PS- If you stay over in Greenville tonight-Henry's Smokehouse near downtown in Hwy 25. You'll be glad you did.

Eddie, wth else can they do??? Me, personally, I can live without a cell phone, but it would be extremely difficult to live without the internet.

9:53 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Luv- Let me clarify, I was not speaking about my dislikes of receiving info slowly, it just seems that people are always trying to speed the process up. I'm amazed at how fast we receive info. As for me, I could not live without my cell phone. Scary to imagine that we did not so long ago.

OK, techie question. I am on my daughter's pc laptop. When I refresh it takes me back to the top of the page. I there anyway to refresh and go back to where I was at the bottom of the comments like on my Mac? Pain to have to scroll down everytime I refresh. Thanks.

10:06 AM  
Blogger CH=B said...

great question Cincy. My laptop at home takes me back to my last spot but my computer here at work takes me to the top as well.

10:09 AM  
Blogger Comm'r of Flesh Wounds said...

Good question, Cincy. I'd like to have that ability too.

If anyone has problems with refreshing and avatars, I found that Firefox works a TON better than Windows Explorer (fyi).

10:09 AM  
Blogger AuFan91 said...

Well I feel like Google Chrome is better than firefox,internet explorer,and safari.

10:14 AM  
Blogger Comm'r of Flesh Wounds said...

Google Chrome = $$$?

10:15 AM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

I figure there is probably a setting somewhere I just don't know what it is. Another reason I like my MAC.

10:15 AM  
Blogger digger4au said...

cincy my mouse driven PC has always taken me back to the top on the post part of the blog and back to the same place on the front page. So it must have something to do with the set up of each system.

Blogger Hoopie said...

Eddie ...My partners and I made a commitment to go as paperless as possible, which as you know is not easy in construction/development. We have done well reducing paper, but now I'm tied to the laptop/emails much more. I'm going to have to break down and get an I-phone type product.

Since I got out of large corporate executive life years ago I've cherished not having to be so connected. It's been great doin' bidness in NW Ga and remaining reasonably low tech. That's changing. Nowadays being connected increases productivity much more than the hassle is a detraction. Back in the day, the requirement to be connected was just a way for CEOs and Presidents to feed their control hunger.

Common flesh...how does google chrome= $$$????

10:20 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Hoopie- Our industry has changed significantly in the 8 years I've been in it. We go as paperless as possible and most documents are scanned in and available for easy access. I've change the way my current company does business and we still have a long way to get where we need to be.

10:21 AM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

Cincy ....THT posted that solution a few months ago. I followed his very clear directions and it is easier, but can't remember exactly what I did.

My guess is that unless THT is imprisoned he will come to our aid soon.

10:21 AM  
Blogger Comm'r of Flesh Wounds said...

Cincy: I just downloaded Google Chrome and it automatically takes me to last post at refresh.

10:22 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

If you don't like scrolling, I know you can hit the "END" key on your keyboard to get to the bottom.

10:22 AM  
Blogger AuFan91 said...

Common flesh...so now you see the light about google chrome...to me it is by far the best! Also the reason that the Android OS is so good on cell phones...

the best way is to click at the last post then refresh it will take you there right afterwards.

You are brilliant! I really didn't want to download anything since it is not my computer and hitting end works perfectly! THANK YOU!

10:27 AM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

Eddie, We're a builder/developer for one repeat client. I haven't printed a set of site plans for the last 3 projects. The building is always the same, so no need to print those plans either. Plans on computer screens are easy while in the office. I never thought we would see the day that plans were emailed by Arch/Engrs as PDFs and the superintendants/subs viewed the plans on site via computer screens.

Even the Ga DOT is beginning to accept electronic plan submittals.

10:28 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

not imprisoned, just busy. Now it's lunch time. Cincy - is it safe to assume that you are using IE on that evil PC?

Just to add one thing about hitting end, you have to tab or click out of the "leave a comment" section first.

Hoopie,
As a PM in an Architecture Firm i love the electronic pdfs.... makes life soo nice to just view PC doesn't it?

10:33 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

It was on Dec 23... and it wasn't the scroll problem, it was the security warning.

I forgot who was having trouble with this message every time they refreshed the HABOTN thread...

"This page contains both secure and nonsecure items. Do you want to display blah blah blah..."

That just happened to me at this work computer. Solution:
Tools > Internet Options > Security > Custom Level >scroll about halfway down to "Display mixed content" and change it from "prompt" to "enable". Then click OK.

Actually, THT, I am using Firefox. Eddie's tip of hitting end seems to work best. I just don't want to download something to her computer. She was nice enough to leave it for me while she is at work.

Damn skippy CH=B!

Cincy, the google chrome is a much better browser... faster and less headaches than IE, firefox of safari!!! i'm just saying.

Mr. FAH, I will tell her about that when she gets home and see if she wants to try it. She uses google for about everything else.

Google Chrome is awesome on PC. The Mac version stunk about a year or more ago and I haven't tried it since. Has anyone else?

10:43 AM  
Blogger CH=B said...

Is it smart enough to take all of your favorites and settings from IE during download? Do you have to delete IE?

10:43 AM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

You can keep IE, you will very occasionally need to use it for some retarded site that requires IE. You will however never go back to it full time once you have experienced the chrome side of life.

10:48 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

yes; no

actually, the "yes" may not be during download, but it's easy to import favorites into Chrome.

I enjoyed the Saints piece. I am married to a NOLA native who remembers the "bag years" well. He is happy, so I am happy.

Geaux, Saints!

I concur with my esteemed Hottie colleague from the Tampa Bay district. IE is used on PC only when I do not have access to Chrome, i.e. in prison.

Even at non-prison work, I use Firefox stored on my U3 which I plug into the USB port on the PCs

Luginbill on Florida: "The program has become bigger than one person. The proszpects were savvy enough ... and realized there is a lot more University of Florida had to offer than just Urban Meyer."

It's a conference call. Interesting to hear what these people from Oregon and Texas want to know.

Short assessment: They want to know about guys I've never heard of who will go to schools I know nothing about. It's as if they don't exist.

do you have a PR release for ESPN live events?

Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

On Auburn: "I really believe their efforts in the spring last year, their unofficial visit weekend, have paid dividends."

``Gene Chizik has drawn so much of his philosophy from Mack Brown with the family atmosphere, how they treat their athletes."

"They could close strong on Wednesday with some kids that put them over the top in a way their fans have never seen before."
