Belated and second-hand scrimmage report

Hey everyone. As discussed earlier in the week, I missed Auburn's first official spring scrimmage today. Sorry about that. It happens.

So here's what I heard and read that piqued my interest:
  • Charles Goldberg reported that Cam Newton took more snaps than any other quarterback today. I consider that significant. He apparently connected on one touchdown and was responsible for a fumble.

  • Andy Bitter of War Eagle Extra says Philip Pierre-Louis took advantage of an opportunity to make plays ... only to see his day end with another knee injury. The severity of that injury remains unknown. Fellow wideout Travante Stallworth tweeted: "Prayn for my boy."

  • The O-A News reported that Auburn High graduate John Sullen filled in at first-team guard because Bart Eddins missed the scrimmage with a knee injury. Asked about Eddins' health on Friday, coach Gene Chizik said: ``There’s no problems there."

  • Multiple outlets reported that assistant coach Trooper Taylor was ecstatic about how the Tigers' wideouts performed on Saturday. He praised everyone's blocking effort and said there were no drops. Emory Blake caught a touchdown pass.

Good report. Even second hand it works for me

4:45 PM

Jay, I see little praise from Roof on the defense. Is this an indication of troubles, or is it just Roof's style?

4:45 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

And one of the more interesting things I have seen is that the two interceptions were by Ikeem Means and Blake Poole, also know as who.

Just saw Butler get introduced and it makes me sick that they have a starter who is from Homewood, Al. That should never happen. I can see a kid leaving the state for Puke, UNC or something like that but Butler.

5:08 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I pulled for Puke when I was younger because I thought it was a NC school. Only in my older/wiser years did a I realize it's a d$@# yankee school. But can I pull for the state school of an unconstitutionally formed state?

Probably so. Go WVU!

Played with the IPad today. It's ok. My wife wants one, but ID rather have a Mac book pro before that. The IPad just seems like a glorified ITouch that doesn't travel as well. If the Memory was better it would be intriguing, but $699 for just 64 gigs and Wi-Fi seems a little too much to me. Reading books with it seems like the best feature to me.

8:40 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

I understand Eddie. Over the past few months I went back and forth on either a Macbook Air or a tablet of some kind for portability. When the iPad was announced, my decision was a little easier. I'll still use my Macbook Pro for heavy computing but for tasks such a web browsing I'll probably use this more

8:58 PM

One other thing... As much as I hate to say it, PF is right in that the iPad needs multitasking... Not sure what RSJ's issue is with that...

9:04 PM

I'd bet it was developed a couple of years ago when he was out of the office for a few months. He's probably already fixed it, but realized that all you suckas would upgrade if he just sent out the one his peons made without him, then release the one he retooled a year later.

Harry Adams didn't run as well this weekend, but his teammate Marcus Rowland now has the fastest time in the world for 2010 in the 100 meter (10.07), a day after UF's RB Jeff Demps gained that distinction... The second place runner didn't cross until 10.36.

Rowland was among 7 Tigers who won individual events. Full recap here for the two of you who care.

10:12 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

I just think it is coincidental with all the discussions we have had on here about tvs that PF buys the exact brand, size, resolution and type that Tyler told me just 4 hours ago was what I needed.

PF, where did you get yours? Tyler got one for a couple in Auburn for whom he is installing a whole entertainment system with surround sound, etc. He got it at Best Buy for a little under $2000, but he says I might can do better in a couple of months.

I looked at the comparable Vizio at Costco, and it was $2000. I almost got it. The reviews are pretty stellar on it.

10:27 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

PF,
The one Tyler bought for the couple was only a 120 Hz. What is the difference is the 120 and the 240? I mean what is it a measurement of?

10:28 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

I'm thinking for the $1000 difference the Vizio would be fine. It is really just for watching football a few times a year at the condo. Tyler is kind of a snob where tvs are concerned.

10:29 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Refresh rate. No I cannot see the difference, but I figured that I would be able to in action movies and sports enough to make it worth it.

10:31 PM

I think you pretty much need a PhD to buy a TV these days.

10:35 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Cincy, they had the 46" version of the 120hz Samsung on sale at Best Buy for $1100 today. I think that is a much better TV than the 120hz Vizio at any size.

Vizio really stepped up their game when they released the XVT line this year, which the 240hz tvs fall into. It's a much better product. The old ones are decent for the price, but I think they are competitive in quality now.

I think you're confusing "geek" with "great", Jet.

I'm absolutely a dork, but given that all three of the LOTR films are at amongst the highest grossing films off all time, I don't think it was just a niche audience singularly enthused about it. Obviously had broad appeal.

Again...I'm a total dork, but I don't think my appreciation of Tolkien's work has much to do with that.

Cincy, is your son moving to beautiful Madison? We bought the Samsung before the championship game (gag, gag). My husband is also a TV snob. I am still amazed at the picture quality when we watch sports or a movie.

Although not popular with the Hotties, my family love their iPads. We are very partial with Apple and own a lot of their products. I watched the Tech Guy yesterday, and Leo was giddy over the iPad.

The baseball team is losing it quickly. Why so many errors? I hope they can avoid the sweep today.

Andy Roddick's playing Tomas Berdych in the Sony Ericsson Final in Miami, one of the bigger non-slam events on the tennis calendar. They're on serve midway through the first set.

Flip over to CBS if you're interested.

I've never gotten into hockey...I don't even know all the rules.

Kathy... You are not alone. I love my iPad too!

Chew on that for a moment. Your family has something in common with a bammer. :-)

FSJ, my husband is a bammer!

1:50 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

I think the Bammer is gone.

It's safe to come out now.

Kathy,
Tyler has reserved an apartment at Arch Street Apartment Homes. They are pretty wonderful! If your daughter decides to look there, tell them Tyler referred her. They can split the $500 referral fee!

I forgot about that Kathy....

Bammers are fine people.

As info.... It only took a developer less than a day to jailbreak the iPad which means multitasking will be an option soon if you are so inclined.

FSJ, this means I can install windows on it now?

Why would anyone want to do that? :-)

game 3 is tuscaloosa underway, auburn up 2-0 after 2 and a half. Both runs were solo homers by Justin Bryant and Creed Simpson respectively

Cincy,
Arch Street Apartments are a couple of blocks from my husband's dental lab on Old Madison Pike and are very nice. My daughter wants to be closer to campus. Hope your son gets his official offer soon.

after 4, Auburn up 3-0, run 3 came on a sac fly. Good small ball by the tigers in the 4th. Caldwell singled, stole second, advanced to third on a single then was brought home with the sac fly. Dayton settling in after allowing some hits

Jailbreak is a word that cracks me up. Such a hipster term for the uber nerdy process of gaining root access.

after 4 and a half, auburn 5-0. Bama has pulled their starter and put in a freshman pitcher

3:30 PM  
Blogger Fearless.True said...

after 6, 6-0 Auburn

Go Tigers. They need to keep adding runs becuse in college ball a team can score a bunch in one inning.

3:52 PM  
Blogger Fearless.True said...

for those of you wondering, our baseball tigers DO in fact have defensive players. Creed Simpson made a great play at the wall in the 6th and Fletcher just pulled one back into the park in the 7th. Dayton got out of a jam in the 7th after allowing a run. He's thrown 101 pitches thus far so I'm thinking his day is done. After 7, its 6-1 AU

and we just had dayton tossed out for hitting a batter. Kind of ridiculous considering he was over 100 pitches. Chris Stewart is saying basically Dayton did it on purpose cause he won't have to miss a start even though he's suspended 4 games. This does mean Powlowski is suspended for tuesday's game against Georgia State.

Wondered if you would catch that :)

4:34 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

I kinda hope it was on purpose, though. Bammers deserve to be punished for their transgressions.

4:34 PM

Yeah, so anyway. Anyone got any Blu-Ray recommendations?

4:35 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

PF, we use our PS3 for blu ray.

Tyler says 300, Avatar when it comes out later this month, LOTR which you don't like, Ironman, Taken, 24 if you like the show (only season 7 in blu ray). He said anything before 2005 isn't really much better in blu ray than regular dvd.

4:45 PM  
Blogger wellsAU said...

Fearless, the idea was that Paws called the hit the batter play? Thus resulting in him being suspended from the bench in our next game? And Dayton is suspended for 4 games?

4:46 PM  
Blogger Fearless.True said...

Its final, the good guys pulled one out of that series. Bats looked good, but a 0 in the errors column looks even better to me. Dayton pitched wonderful and moves to 3-0 in SEC play. Georgia State and South Alabama midweek with LSU coming to town this weekend

4:47 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

wells,
Apparently the rule is if the umpire feels you hit the batter on purpose, pitcher is automatically ejected and suspended for 4 games. Coach is also ejected and suspended for next game. Best as I understand it anyway.

4:50 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

LSU is going to be tough, but not unbeatable. They only beat UGA by one run Friday,and lost to them yesterday 12-6. If UGA can compete, so can Auburn. Then again, Auburn should be 7-2 in SEC play instead of 5-4, but they've made some fatal mistakes, so who knows what team will show up for any given game.

4:52 PM  
Blogger Fearless.True said...

cincy is correct, don't understand the rule myself, bama's coach had to sit out today for his pitcher being ejected yesterday. Their pitcher's four-game suspension is a lot bigger deal than ours since he's a reliever. Grant isn't scheduled to pitch til next sunday and there's 4 games between now and then.

Chris Stewart sucks, so whatever. He professes to see the world through "Crimson Colored Glasses"*

Interesting to see LSU losing yesterday by a wide margin at home yesterday. They obsess over winning in Alex Box.

4:59 PM

Wells, they had some major pitching issues this weekend. They used 12 pitchers (5 Friday, and 4 each on Saturday and Sunday...Rittner appeared twice) in the series.
