Your Friday Thread

Hey everyone. I am in Kentucky handling some family business, which means my ability to blog is essentially zero.

I'm on dial-up. Forgive the blog's rough appearance.

I'll soon begin writing a story for Sunday about the Tigers' 2010 signing class. Should I deem it an overall success? Yeah, probably.

For the guy who emailed and ripped me for covering the "negative" news associated Marcus Lattimore, let me break some news: The sun doesn't shine every day. Look out the window.

Feel free to comment about whatever strikes your fancy.

Have a nice day.

I read somewhere that Aairon Savage was granted a 6th year of eligibility.

3:14 PM  
Blogger michael said...

When I was 13, I already had 3 offers. Of course, the offers were from the chess club, a group of dudes into dungeons and dragons, and the lunch lady. The first two asked me to join their groups. I won't say exactly what the last one offered.

3:15 PM

I heard BC was going to grant a 13 year old a sixth year of eligibility.

SteveFL is going to Oregon in his mind, no wait that's Arizona isn't it?

On Michael's Facebooks page, it says the offer was for "onions", not "bunions".

weagle, I have the same problem. But I can never get page 2 to work, so what do I know?

3:44 PM

Yeah, weagle, that's what I was talking about. I just suggested that because it didn't show Silverlight loading when I played it there, like it did on the CBS site.

OK people, it doesn't take that long to notify authorities.

Blogger Harrison said...

I wrote them a letter Michael, but i didn't have any stamps, so it will go out on Monday

4:07 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Harrison, you aren't thinking clearly. What you do is write the "to" address as yours, and the "from" address as the authorities, and then find an old used stamp and put it on there, and then write "return to sender" on it. Works like a charm!

4:20 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

You're really smart Michael, but i got around the problem by just drawing a picture of a stamp on the envelope.

4:21 PM  
Blogger michael said...

What did you draw? Hopefully a commemorative Elvis stamp.

4:28 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Or maybe Sacagawea. Yeah, she'd be good to draw too.

4:34 PM

I drew the new Bigfoot stamp

I hope it was an action shot of him eating a human next to a winnebago that may or may not have been stolen.

Well lets not jump to conclusions, fellas. Certainly more people than THT have stolen Winnebagos. Let's hope it was one of them.

4:59 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

I'm leaving to look for the Winnebago. Please notify the authorities if I'm not back in a few days.

5:06 PM  
Blogger michael said...

K. When we notify the authorities then, I will be sure to have Harrison make the stamp a drawing of you being eaten by bigfoot. Or maybe he can shake it up a little bit and show bigfoot clobbering you in the head after a short foot chase.

5:09 PM

Actually I think most big foot sightings involve copious amounts of alcohol. So if your really trying to avoid big foot, you might want to stay away from the beer.

I don't think that's an option Wake. We'll just have to learn to coexist with them.

5:32 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

after I got home i called the authorities and told them someone left a stolen winnebago in my driveway. They hauled it off to test for DNA or prints. I drove home inside a plastic garbage bag, so I'm safe. But I should have gotten a bag that wasn't already have full of garbage.

I am with you THT. I was up there a few years back when those 3 hikers died. Also, I believe 3 more died up there earlier this year.

I have been up as far as Timberline Lodge. It is where those searches you see on TV originate from. I believe it was June when we went. We were in shorts. It was in the 70s in Portland. It was snowing at Timberline lodge and there was next to no visibility.

I went there in August once and the weather on mountain wasn't bad, but I am not anxious to go back.

If you made the right decisions the night before then there would be not need for a pill on the morning after. Ignorance nor alcohol are excuses.

Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

me, too, THT. Got asked last night. I didn't tell, but that stupid box on his dash did. Freaking Panther crossing zones causing random and sudden 15mph fluctuations in the speed limit at night.

7:08 PM  
Blogger Unknown said...

Newton will be very interesting. I watched some of his play in the JCNCG. He looked okay as a passer, but any time Blinn got near the red zone, it seemed like he was read to run. If he can pass as good as Todd, he will be tough to stop. The guy doesn't run like a QB. He looks like a big version of Tebow carrying the ball.

7:08 PM  
Blogger CHB said...

PF, no I do not. One subject is showing some responsibility to prevent an "accident" the other tries to get rid of the accident.

7:08 PM

On a different topic, here is one reason we recruited so well this year. The coaches did a wonderful job, but the fans helped a lot.

PF, I hope I never again see Kodi throw a pass.

7:10 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

you watched some of his play in that game? C'mon! You practically gave a tape delayed play by play of the game one night. Some. Nice.

7:11 PM  
Blogger Unknown said...

I also find Caudle interesting. He was suppose to be a big time recruit. So far his highlight film for his career at Auburn is pretty much that one 50 something yard run he had last season.

If Cam isn't the starter, I will be surprised. As for the others, I have no clue. Moseley, Trotter, Caudle, or Rollison may all have a shot if Cam isn't the guy.

As for Kodi, I have no idea where he can contribute this coming season. We are loaded at receiver. I suppose we could use a 4th string tailback.

7:12 PM  
Blogger Unknown said...

PF, I think you are right. I do think I commented a lot on the first half.

7:12 PM  
Blogger Unknown said...

Nova, it wouldn't shock me if you never see Kodi get any more playing time. I hate it because he was very mature in the way he handled things last fall, but when you look at the talent at wide receiver, it is hard to see him in the playing rotation. As for wildcat, why would you need a wildcat QB if your starter is 250 pounds and runs like a tail back?

7:15 PM  
Blogger Unknown said...

I think they'll find a way to continue to use Kodi. He made himself a hero with that speech and I don't think that ends with last season. The team needs Kodi to play a role, just not at QB.

Perhaps, but I think it is the same reason that Hawthorne left the team. There just isn't enough balls to go around with the receivers we have. The last count I did, we had 13 receivers. That may have been before hawthorne left, but includes the 4 signees in this class.

I also wonder if that QB we lost to Ole Miss will end up being their starter. I think his name was Ray Cotton, but my memory isn't what it once was.

My completely unbased speculation is that Kodi and Tyrik split time as the Wildcat, and that formation continues to be part of Gus's playboook.

I don't care what you guys say, I think Kodi threw at least one TD pass in the Outbacok bowl. Unfortunately, the defense wanted the ball more and made big plays (I'm not willing to say both could have been TDs, but you put the right receivers in those routes and both have a chance).

I think Kodi will be a much improved WR this year. We really need someone that can run the ball to use in the wildcat.

Cotton has a good chance to be the starter for the Rebs from what I've read (which isn't much).

I suppose a wildcat QB could come in to give Newton a break, but I do think there are others that might be better at it.

It is not nearly so clear this year what will happen past the starter, which I would be shocked if it wasn't Newton.

As for Rollison, he is a huge question mark in my book. There is a reason he wasn't recruited by any other big name schools. I am afraid we will see why.

Long ago I watched film on Cotton and he did remind me a bit of Campbell. Until a QB plays in college, you really can't tell, though. See Neil Caudle:) He was suppose to be good.

Didn't Ole Miss graduate almost their entire offense, like 8 starters or something like that?

7:34 PM  
Blogger Unknown said...

Newton wouldn't have been recruited if Gus didn't see him as the likely starter. There's no other reason to spend a scholarship on a JuCo QB.

That doesn't mean the fix is in, but he's got the talent and the most experience.

Kodi did have a some good passes and he had some very bad ones. Overall, I've been underwhelmed by his QB play.

Complete offensive overhaul, yes, including coaches. Look for them to suck.

"graduate" might not be the best choice of verb, SteveFC, but yes, 8 offensive starters from Ole Miss have completed their eligibility.

simply amazing. No news at all today, and we're closing in on another page flip.

Louisiana: 19
South Carolina: 17
Texas: 15
Tennessee: 12
Arkansas: 8

New York: 2
Missouri: 2
Illinois: 2
Pennsylvania: 1
Connecticut: 1

It's a bit misleading since we are listed as having 2 California signees. However, they are both JUCO; one hails from Minnesota, the other from Louisiana (I think)

7:45 PM

from same article, Jon Solomon shows this tally for Auburn:
Auburn Tigers
Alabama: 11
Georgia: 8
Florida: 3
California: 2
Arkansas: 2
Missouri: 1
Mississippi: 1
South Carolina: 1
Kansas: 1
Texas: 1
Louisiana: 1

TX signee is from GA;
Kansas signee is from GA

ok, I've run out of material.

Let's go back to the BC coaching situation and discuss how it has been effected by Krispy Kreme doughnuts and Chrome web browser.

I like seeing us recruit on a national scale. We will always have to do good in Alabama and Georgia, but picking up top players from other states is a great sign.

Oh, for the love of Mike.

That's pretty interesting. I expected more from Florida.

We can't leave it this close. Where's norm?
