Cam Newton is your No. 1 quarterback

Hey everyone. We now have word that Cam Newton has been named Auburn's No. 1 quarterback exiting spring drills.

“After thoroughly evaluating our quarterbacks during spring practice and over the last week, Cam has emerged as our post-spring No. 1 quarterback,” coach Gene Chizik said. “Obviously, he will have a lot of work to do over the summer and during two-a-days to continue along this path. We fully expect our other quarterbacks to continue to work hard and compete with Cam during the off-season and into fall camp.”

Auburn is making Chizik and Newton available to reporters on Thursday morning. So what can we do before then?

Talk to Cam's father, Cecil, who always has interesting things to say!

CECIL NEWTON

  • On the news than Cam is the No. 1 guy: ``I don't think it's really sunk in yet. I know Cam is on Cloud Nine. Me? My son is playing for a program that's really top-shelf, he has the job. It doesn't get much better than that."

  • On how Cam has adjusted to Auburn: ``A-Day didn't go the way a lot of people expected, but I don't think it was a problem. As someone sitting in the stadium and watching him play, I'd have graded him as `moderate' or 'low' relative to what everyone was expecting. Yet (the coaches) graded him above average. He was making the right decisions out there, so it's not like he made mistakes."

  • On Cam's lack of passing opportunities in the A-Day game: ``Not sure what to say about that. Was it intentional or was that just the way it worked out? I'd say it probably was just the script. They watched him for 15 practices. They know what he can do."

  • On overall satisfaction with Auburn (over Mississippi State and Oklahoma): ``We're all really happy. I think Gus (Malzahn) is the right man for the job. Cam is in a program that can use him as he should be used ... and he can get the exposure he deserves. We have a pretty big following in Florida and Georgia. We had people hounding us about watching Cam play on TV. They all wanted to see the spring game. It's working out great. I say the same things to (Curtis) Luper. I talk to Gus sparingly. I don't want to be that father who is in the coach's ear all the time. That's not me."

QBs? ...we're discussing Qbs?

Cam announced as the starter? What are we now gonna discuss all summer? What's the over/under on how many posts before SFC gets wind of this?



A couple of tidbits, but first the obligatory reference to Low's site for such:

SEC Commish Slive's commment on Kiffen: "I wish him well, I really do - as long as he's in California."

Also according to Low, Mullen @ MSU is copying the Tiger Prowl:

On Monday, Mullen embarked on a five-day, 12-stop “Road Dawgs” tour of the state and surrounding areas. Traveling on a state-of-the-art motor home, he’s speaking to Mississippi State booster groups and visiting with fans in all corners of the state from Batesville, to Kosciusko, to Biloxi.

I guess. But it's been a fluid situation before. I think Daniel Cobb was number one out of Spring in 2001 and Jason ended up starting.

I think it was similar the next year, excet that Cobb was still the starter out at USC, though the the QB competition was still very much alive in the Fall Camp.

Or maybe Cobb was never #1 heading out of those Spring practices.

As long as no one shows up with a surgically repaired/enhanced shoulder in August, Cam should hold onto the spot.

Major unexpected blind sided substance. I take this as very good news. I don't care here that it's a "good problem to have". which was mentioned by a previous OC who should not be named.

For me, it didn't matter which QB they chose. I trust Malzahn to pick the right guy. I just think this gives the QB an edge in terms of leading the team in summer workouts.

Thanks for the major unexpected news, Jay. I love it.

Yeah, PF. They said he could ride along if he paid for the gas.

2:36 PM  
Blogger Miller said...

Cam announced as #1 comes as no surprise. But, is still newsworthy. Glad Papa Newton is proud and seems like a pleasure to talk to. We need to wrangle him into the HABOTN fold as a regular contributor (poster).


Luke Cothron is visiting this weekend and barring something weird, I expect him to commit/sign shortly thereafter. He's one of Rivals top 10 unsigned prospects and ranked 33 in their top 150. He would be a huge signee for Barbee and alongside Langford could make AU very competetive in the West next season.

Upon further review, I am concerned at the logo size on the PF endorsed Tiger Prowl vehicle.

The verdict:

MJT, that means you belong in a cooler. > You've always been number 2 in my book, Michael

Reasoning: Norm's quip requires a priori knowledge of certain HABOTN lore that makes the fecal joke feel more intelligent.

I was so glad to see Cobb gone. The worst thing I ever saw him do was against Arkansas. It was a good game back and forth and he made a great play with his feet. He ran about 30-40 yards down field with no one around him. There was a receiver down field blocking. When Cobb came up on them what did he do? Run right? Run left? Nope, he decided to jump on top of both of them. He then fumbled the ball, Arkansas recovered and we went on to lose.

Favorite DanINT Cobb memory:

Jet...I think Cobb said something to the effect of "Great players are defined by the moment, etc."

Well, during winter workouts the next season, we in the equipment room were watching a replay of that game on ESPN Classic or something and Cobb came strolling by and saw it was coming to the end of the game. He made sure to stay with us and watch the interview of himself after the game. He was glowing with self-reverential praise.

It was awkward.

I have a pizza from a kosher place in Miami in my car right now. I almost punched the guy that sold it to me, but whatever the trouble I had to go through will definitely be worth it. They make a good pizza.

Mellow Mushroom is pretty awesome, even if it is run by a bunch of liberal tree-hugging hippies :-P
I tried to make their recipe at home. The dough came out right (spring water and molases), but the sauce I made was lousy. Think I'm going rustica with my sauce next time.

You're very welcome, Cincy.

Game 7 starting in just a couple o' minutes. I'm heading up to my office to clean up. The thought of watching the Caps crush the Habs is too unappealing.

well, ok, I'll probably watch. Watching mean hockey players (e.g. #8) is still better than not watching hockey.

Love me some spades Cincy. We started playing in high school and continued through college.

Mellow Mushroom is pretty good and so was Godfathers. We really don't eat pizza that often and we almost never eat it out.

Seinfeld was/is a great show. I didn't like it when it was on air, but have started watching reruns and its great. Some of the one liners from that show are classic. How many people have never told another "no soup for you"?

Deadliest Catch=on of the best shows on tv now.

Dahani Tackles The Globe is also a good show.

I would like to think that I am a Pizza Connoisseur and my favorites are Mom's Italian Villa in Chattanooga, Spanky's in Savannah on River Street, Mellow Mushroom and Johnny's, and any place in NY City not named Sabarro's. I will have to make it to Chicago one day and try some real deep dish. All this pizza talk makes me hungry!

7:09 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Oh, as far as Godfather's, there is one about a 2 miles from my house, and it is attached to a gas station. Still make a pretty good pizza and they occasionally run a $5 per medium pizza delivered to you at the pump of your choice.

Spanky's, huh? I've eaten there hundreds of times between the three locations(mostly Brunswick Marsh Side), and have never had their Pizza. When I wanted pizza on St.Simon's, I'd go to Brogan's. Got in a rut with Spanky's and always did chicken.

Has anyone ever done Rosa's on Broad St across from Woodruff Park in Atlanta. Dang good. Beter than Felini's.

Florence Peeps, remember how good the pizza was at Stefano's?

Yeah. I forgot about that. I'll be on with J.Kev tomorrow!

That means I'll be late on posting comments tomorrow morning. Gotta pick one.

7:36 PM

Unless Chiz is playing Lady Ga-Ga, I think thay's an easy choice.

7:38 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

PF- I really liked Stefano's in Florence. My wife is from there and ate there a couple times before it closed.

Felini's is another pretty good place, but I really only ended up buying slices there and slices are never as good as buying a whole pie. With that said, I'll have to keep Rosa's in mind.

Jay G- Thanks for the front page love.

7:41 PM

Lady Ga Ga has to be Ke$ha, right?

On the topic of HD camera's, I'm really loving my Flip Mino HD. Pretty darn good video for the cost and fits in my pocket with ease.

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned or not... but, Thomas O'Reilly has been selected as an Under Armour All-American... and is also a nominee as an Army All-American... If he chooses to play in the Under Armour game he will join 2 other AU commits on the OL at the game (Region and Dismukes are also Under Armour All-Americans).

Another fine eatery has bitten the dust, the Treasure Ship Restraunt in Panama City pretty much burned down today. Supposedly a total loss. I remember eating there when I was a kid, which by the way, should be the only acceptable reason for eating there, with kids.

OT-For anyone that lives around Bonaire, GA there was an accident involving na elderly woman and a dump truck. The woman died on the scene. That was my aunt. Very sweet lady. Not posting for any reason other than for anyone that lives in that area just providing more info.

Have I ever tried a pizza I didn't like? Probably not.

My favorites, however, are Pizza Villa in Lagrange and Fellini's in Atlanta.

WTC - very sorry to see that news.

I know this won't be a popular opinion, but hockey is better when the Habs are good.

Kinda like the Yankees in baseball. Everybody cowboy movie needs a guy in a black hat.

Jet - You are correct, they are the Yankees of Hockey....a ton of history!

Still stinks though.

I don't disagree jet. I just wish it had been the Pens instead of the Caps that were out now.

9:35 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

2009-10 regular season

Penguins vs Caps & Devils.... 0 wins 9 losses

Penguins vs Flyers/Habs/Bruins 11 wins 3 losses

Conclusion: Pens have no one to blame but themselves if they can't get back to the Finals.
Thank you, Habs!
Thank you, Flyers!

The only East team still playing that I dislike: Flyers. Go Bruins!

9:46 PM

Will the Capitals fail to reach the conference finals again this season?
Yes:
44.75 %

No:
55.25 %


hehehe

Speaking of smezmerizing, the Tim Tebow/Broncos jersey, according to a pulbish report, is already breaking sales records for a rookie.

One of my Denver friends sent me a picture tonight of their Tebow/Broncos jersey.

They're excited.

Hotties, get your Tebow jersey here

I don't follow hockey... why are the Canadiens called the Habs?


The fighting Ovechkins choked.

NoVa T ...Carmine's Pizza had great 1" deep Chicago pizza around 1978. They were on the A-O Pkwy toward the campus from Dean Rd.

Back in the day, and way prior to the Godfather's Pizza gas pump delivery marketing strategy, we enjoyed that pizza.

Ahhhhh ...just realized that Tebow-mania will now exit from CFB.

NFL fans? ...good luck with that.

10:14 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Dirty Ovechkins 1 for 33 on power play. OUCH!

Of course, LA Kings lead the playoffs, scoring on 10 of 26 power plays (38.5%). That did them a whole lot of good.

10:16 PM

Ugh.

PF - my new battery just finished charging. While it was charging I didn't have any weird behavior. I hope that was the problem. Fingers crossed.

Jay, you might ask if there is a depth chart at QB. I wonder who is the number 2, although Caudle would seem likely for traditional reasons.

10:31 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Hoopie, over the next 3 or 4 years any QB that runs the ball will be compared with Tebow, so we aren't quite over it yet.

10:32 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

I predict Tebow will be the Jean shorts crowd's version of the bahr. They will never stop wearing their hideous shade of blue jersey's with a number 15 on them. For Me and PF, having Tebow stuffed down our throat will not end until we exit the state.

10:44 PM

I'll be praying for you and your family WTC.

I didn't realize it was after midnight. I also didn't realize that Rambo killed more Russians & Viet Cong than Josey Wales killed yanks.

Sweet AU dreams, Hotties!
