Rollison really is gone

Hey everyone. Just a quick update that Tyrik Rollison's father, Michael Kelly, told Jeffrey Lee over at AuburnSports.com that a transfer to Sam Houston State is imminent.

I have a call in to Kelly as well.

Rollison, as you'll recall, was the presumed crown jewel of Auburn's 2009 signing class. He ran into trouble in November, though, and was suspended indefinitely prior to Auburn's game in the Outback Bowl. Rollison didn't make the trip to Tampa. He won't make any trips now.

Sam Houston State has seen this before. Former Oklahoma quarterback Rhett Bomar, who was busted in a pay-for-play scam, played for the Bearkats in 2007 and '08. He was selected in the fifth round of the 2009 NFL Draft. He plays for the New York Giants.

Auburn now has four scholarship quarterbacks on the roster:
Neil Caudle, senior
Cam Newton, junior
Barrett Trotter, sophomore
Clint Moseley, redshirt freshman

UPDATE @3 p.m. CST: I spoke briefly with Rollison's father, who was far more reluctant to talk than I expected. ``I wouldn't say it was an easy decision. It was tough, but it was time to move on," Michael Kelly said. After that, though, Kelly said he'd have no additional comment.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I will not allow the actions (or inactions) of 17 - 20-something young men negatively impact my life. I changed my mind plenty during those years on many things. Some of those things I now sometimes I wish I'd done differently but that's water under the bridge. The only time I expect to be impacted by the decisions or actions of a boy that age will be in 14 some years when F4* gets to that age. Until then, I'll root for these kids to win every game while wearing AU.

Good luck to Tyrik. I do hope he does well and I don't think we have the full story. The reason for the suspension would be interesting, although I do think ChizCo is correct in not disclosing it. Young kids like this don't deserve the full cavity search on everything they do while in college.

I assume that TR's scholarship slot is unusable for the 2010 season (even if we could find substance/quality to fill it at this point). Is that an accurate assumption?

jhag & jtate crack me up.


Writer Tate - please let TR's dad know we wish them the very best.

1:12 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Lowcountry, unless we loose another QB, I don't see a need for another QB. Four is a good number considering none of them are incoming Freshmen.

I do find it ironic that the hype over Rollison was similar to the hype over Kodi. In both case I think people got ahead of themselves with expectations.

Even Newton may not be everything we hope. I hope that he is, but you never can tell. Playing in JUCO has to be a lot different than playing in the SEC. He could likely outrun anyone his size in JUCO. In the SEC he will see players bigger than he is that can outrun him.

1:16 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Lowcountry - I think we are full for the 2010 class. In fact, I'm not sure if we aren't still over the overall limit of 85 (assuming 25 of our 28 2010 signees enroll this fall).

Anybody got the latest permutation of our total current # of schollies that are in use?

THT, I agree. I hope Rollison does well. It may be that he needs a different environment.

THT, we only signed 27. Chiz has one spot in his pocket.

1:18 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

I find it highly likely that we won't have 25 of the signees actually show up in the fall. You always loose some. We should be fine as long as that number doesn't drop drastically. The five signees that counted against 2009 meant a lot.

1:20 PM  
Blogger wellsAU said...

I really liked Eddie's comment earler.

"Tyrik Rollison=Facebook Legend"

At least he made headway in one way or another at Auburn; both on facebook and at Skybar. As a redshirt Sophomore, I still have a year to make myself a facebook legend.

Also, thanks for the welcomes. This blog can usually produce a few good laughs, and insightful thoughts.

1:28 PM  
Blogger wellsAU said...

I think with Rollison gone now, and that extra spot from only 27 instead of 28 signees, we end up in perfect shape. No gray shirts needed.

1:30 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Steve is right, sort of. 27 is the correct number. However, if at least 25 qualify, there ain't nuthin' in Chizik's pocket but a few million$

I've heard no confirmation that more than 2 would not qualify.

Blogger ExKnightMike said...

We can only enroll 25 this fall. Whether we sign 27,(the current number) pick up another to make it 28 signees or whatever, we still can enroll only 25 in school on scholarship this fall. If all 27 qualify, two will have to greyshirt or go elsewhere. I suppose the coaches have that handled.

The 85 limit won't be a problem this fall. Minus Rollison and including all 25 new guys, we'll only have 87. At least two will drop out or transfer over the summer. Never fails.

2:08 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

That truly is the way to look at this. If Auburn wasn't the right place for Tyrik, Tyrik wasn't going to be the right player for Auburn. Hopefully it will work out best for both. Also, this will increase the number of reps the QBs that will be here will get in the spring, which works for me.

As for the 25 versus 27 thing, it wouldn't shock me if there were more than 2 not qualify, although I think I have only heard of a couple that are border line. One is one of the DTs. I don't recall the other.

Last year we only got something like 18 or 19 of our signees actually on the team when the season began. You just never can tell what will happen.

Like I say, the 5 that counted against 2009 really mean a lot. I do believe we will be fine. Yea, if only 18 or 19 actually are on the team when the season starts, it would be a concern, but not nearly as much so as last season. I have never seen the type of depth issues we had last season on defense.

2:15 PM

I am certain the coaches have already identified the potential gray shirts. We did sign a couple of lower rated last minute guys on signing day. I am sure that they were told that if....

Too bad that it didn't work out for TR. I wish him well. Last August, Eduardo had convinced me to get my hopes up for the Express.

I still don't think Rollison does this if the coaches didn't make it clear that he was way behind on the depth chart in the future. It just doesn't make sense. He would have a great shot at starting as a Junior. At the very worst, it wouldn't hurt to wait another year before he transfers. He must have really pissed them off.

The question that begs to be answered is why did he decide to transfer now, right before spring practice. There is more to this due to the timing.

As for Tyrik, I hope je rolls on and does great things. He was a big help to Auburn in recruiting last year and that deserves to be mentioned.

Making the decision prior to even competing in spring practice is significant.

lebo:suck = jgt:awesome (sorry, that was the answer we were looking for)

lebo can go be awesome at southwestern north dakota state technical college. it obviously ain't happenin' at AU.

i just read the story on the bball game. 42-19 over the last 11:04 after leading by 14. awesome is not part of that conversation. ut and uk barely scored 42 through most of their game last week. lebo's d can give that up in 11 mins? were shooting 3s into their basket or something?

Support your Tigers. LSU knocked off Bama and now they are coming after us.

Good morning, Hotties! I am SO glad I don't have to work tomorrow! I get to sleep in! I may get up at 7:00 a.m., but that's sleeping in for me!

Anyone that had a lead like Auburn had a halftime and then loses by that amount didn't deserve to win. I'm glad I fell asleep right after halftime. Have you Hotties that have been following basketball ever seen a team that was so inconsistent??

morning hotties. decided to get to work 2 hours early to catch up! whew. just in case you didn't know, little league baseball season is heating up! if anyone needs jerseys or anything, holla! i can hook the hotties up!

I'm glad I didn't watch the game last night. That is a sad statement, but one that I'm growing accustomed to during this Coach's era.

I'm ready for spring practice and the QB race. Oh and I'm still not sold on Newton. I need some convincing.

6:41 AM  
Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

Eddie, I hear ya - taking the wait and see approach this time!

6:49 AM  
Blogger Jason said...

I'm sold on his play on the field. The guy has an arm, and can obviously run. I'm not sold on his alleged rehabilitation. My fear is that he'll be a monster on the field, then do something that gets him suspended before a big game. The guy's not shy and is an outspoken leader. If he can stay healthy and out of trouble he may be solid.

Saying all this, note that I don't believe in football saviors. I'm not looking for the guy to be the next Vince Young, but just a solid QB who gives us a legit pass/run threat.

We'll have talent all over the field so Cam (or whoever is named) just needs to play his part.

7:06 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Cam Newton Highlight film seems like JaMarcus Russell throwing the ball and Donovan McNabb running it. I hope it works out, but I'll wait and see how it looks when he is out there. It's hard to say that any of our signees are sure things until the get on our field and show their stuff.

7:11 AM  
Blogger Jason said...

Lebo: Awesome.

Sorry you all can't see that.
=======================
Is that tongue in cheek or are you serious?

I ask because lately I've been wondering if it's impossible for AU to be consistently good at BBall. I've never seen it. And when you're always bad you begin to wonder what's the common denominator...us. We've had some good teams, but it was always short-lived. So, I'm not sure if you're serious Jay, but if you are I'm sorta with you...

7:11 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Jason- From following Jay for awhile and from previous comments, I'm pretty sure that it is tongue and cheek talk by Jay G.

7:13 AM  
Blogger Jason said...

I agree with that Eddie...it's hard to know for sure, but with some players you have a better idea of than others.

Like Julio Jones at Bama, you knew if the guy worked hard and stayed out of trouble, he was going to be good. Same with Trent Richardson. I felt the same way with Ronnie Brown as well. After watching him run up and down the field on my high school team in the 1999 GA AAA state championship game, my only consolation was that he was going to AU and he was going to be good.

Some players it doesn't take a genius to see that the only thing standing between them and greatness is themselves.

7:15 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Jason- I think that is what happened to Rollison. The guy is talented as they come, but apparently he has issues to work out in order to allow him to be the football player he wants to be.

7:20 AM  
Blogger Jet Cochran said...

If Cam turns out to be Jamarcus McNabb, I think we'll be happy.

7:22 AM

I was too busy balling it up last night to see the game. I just have one question:

HOW IN HADES DOES AN SEC TEAM GIVE UP 63 POINTS IN THE SECOND HALF???????

I can't defend Lebo anymore, he HAS to go.

7:27 AM  
Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

stupup, just what does "balling it up" mean?

Stupup ...

Ole Miss missed a layup at the buzzer to score 65. Not really.

JGT's Malzahn interview for those too impatient to wait for the link on his new thread today.

Snowing like crazy for the first half of long commute today. Pittsboro (not Pittsburgh) getting dumped on. I regret that it will probably all be gone by the time I drive back through there this afternoon.

Nice article on Gus, JayG. Nothing like substance with your coffee!

For you none-Gumrians, we have a magnet high school basketball team (Brewbaker Tech) here that has made it to the 4 A championship for the first time. What makes this really remarkable is that the school has no gymnasium.

Go, Brew Tech!

Thanks THT.

Morning Hotties

I no longer live in Alabama so have no dog in the fight, but I've heard Ron Sparks on 3 different radio shows over the last few days and he hasn't been able to properly pronounce "statistics" yet. If I had a vote in the governor's race there, that would really get to me. But, it's frequently the little things like that which tend to annoy me more than anything else.

Norm-the line has been drawn in AL.

It will hinge on if you support casino gambling or not support it. last election, every commercial for a candidate had a bible in it. This year, they all have a slot machine in it.

Didn't they make a movie about Brewbaker Tech where they got a new principal and he disguised himself as a student in an effort to reform the rampant corruption?

Great article, Jay. I like the fact that Gus realizes he has improvements to make and is working on doing that.

Thanks, for the link THT.

Good morning,hotties. Exciting day of house cleaning, clothes washing, mending and paperwork today. But, tomorrow I get to go to Auburn!!

wish i could make it. i wanted to go to one last game in the BEMC but since i have a new car payment i'm kinda out. bummer. have fun!!!!!!!

so, how many days til spring practice starts?

8:32 AM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

Hey scottie b,
We are going to the gymnastics meet Friday night, the baseball game Saturday afternoon and the basketball game Saturday night. I really want to stay and go to the women's basketball game on Sunday afternoon, but that may be pushing it.

I'm also going to pay a visit to the archives to see about some old b&w pictures of Auburn to use in the condo.

Awesome weekend!

thanks, Norm. That's depressing.

Sounds like I made a good choice to not tune in to the 2nd half of the b-ball game last night. I knew it was over once AU got that double-digit 1st half lead.

8:53 AM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Of course, I was starting to feel a little bit that way about 14 point leads in football at the end of last season.

Luv,

"Balling it up" means I was playing basketball with my peeps after church last night.

9:00 AM  
Blogger stupup74 said...

'Balling it up' also implies that I was doing quite well in that activity, especially from beyond the 3 point line.

9:01 AM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

scottie,
I think I am using mainly architectural details and some of the building photographs. I was thinking of doing a collage of different close ups of columns, letters, etc on some of the buildings around campus. And them some of the old scenes like The Bottle, Sani Flush, the old tennis courts that used to be where Haley now stands (that is where my in-laws met). Haven't quite decided, but thinking...Thanks for the offer! I may pick your brain for some ideas.

9:06 AM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

Ballin' can also be used in reference to just about any activity in which you excel or dominate your competition.

It can also mean that you're cleaning up in the professional world or doin' well in general.
