Practice report, 4/14

Hey everyone. Practice has ended. Here's what we learned:

  • Auburn scrimmaged today. WR Darvin Adams was held out because of a shoulder injury, though he expects to participate in A-Day.

  • Adams said DeAngelo Benton had a good day.

  • The offense scored at least three touchdowns. They scored two early, which included a long pass from Cam Newton to Benton. He beat T'Sharvan Bell for that touchdown.

  • Assistant coach Trooper Taylor was impressed with that play: ``We talk about catching balls in windows. That was a peep-hole. I don't have a drill for that."

  • WR Kodi Burns caught a touchdown pass from Newton.

  • Wideout Ralph Spry Jr. had a fumble and a touchdown. ``He has to get the track mentality out and become a football player," Taylor said.

  • Taylor then turned around and said he's been most impressed with Spry and Blake this spring.

  • Taylor said the weird scoring system of 2009 has been ditched. He said the teams will be mixed up (not 1s versus 2s) to provide some different challenges for players.

  • LB Craig Stevens (left) said the defense wasn't up to the challenge initially. Once the scrimmage developed a tempo, though, he said the offense began to lose its verve.

  • Taylor said the scrimmage mirrored last season (quick start, late struggles) and he let players know about it. He was not happy.

  • He indicated that one of the interceptions was because WR Emory Blake made a mistake.

  • Stevens said he's been impressed with the way Newton has handled business of the field. The quarterback, he said, arrived without arrogance and quietly worked to build trust.

  • Adams said he likes watching Newton play because he brings the deep ball back into the fold. Asked if Newton was the only quarterback capable of throwing deep passes accurately, Adams quickly covered his tracks and said they're all capable.

  • There were at least two interceptions -- one each from Ikeem Means and Drew Cole.

  • Defensive coordinator Ted Roof (left) said nobody (reporters, fans) should infer things about his rotations based on what's happening right now. We learned the other day that Jonathan Evans was running with the No. 1 defense at strong-side linebacker. I still think that's significant, but Roof insists it isn't. It's important to remember that Daren Bates may fit in here somewhere.

  • Roof said Bates, who is out with a shoulder injury, has pieced together a "good mental spring."

  • Wes Byrum has been happy with his kicking so far this spring. He hopes to handle both field goals and kickoffs this fall.

Websters has this to day re: Eltoro (Who still has 2 years to play football, for those math wizards, that would mean he still has 66% of his college career remaining.)

inconclusive [ˌɪnkənˈkluːsɪv]
adj
not conclusive or decisive; not finally settled; indeterminate

Roget's take:
Adj. 1. inconclusive - not conclusive; not putting an end to doubt or question; "an inconclusive reply"; "inconclusive evidence"; "the inconclusive committee vote"
"conclusive proof"; "the evidence is conclusive"

1:06 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Wait, what I said is not clear....oh, just figure it out.

1:06 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

PF. I was referring specifically to the window of playing time he has at Auburn.

He arrived as a RS Sophomore. Should he be on the team for all remaining years of eligibility he will have played 3 years.

He has only completed his first year. So 1 year played out of 3 potential years = 1/3 or .3333333, depending on how many decimal places you use. So using our rule of percents, you move the decimal to the right two positions.

If you subtract the new number, from a possible 100 percent, you arrive at 66.6667%, again dependent on decimal places remaining.

1:09 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

my figuring of Seanzie math:
Eltoro arrived with 3 years of eligibility, of which he has used one (rather unproductively). Two of 3 years eligibility remaining = 66.7%.

1:09 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

well, why did I waste my time with math. Is it Fall yet?

Blogger Lowcountry Tiger said...

Steve FC - if the INTs are coming from the "non-starters", I wonder which of these are true (if any):
1) the starters are even better, and we're throwing away from them
2) when the non-starters are on the field, the QBs are complacent
3) when the non-starter DBs are on the field, so are the non-starter WRs (and they're not very good).

Only #1 leaves me with a good feeling.

There is a big difference between a player not living up to the hype and a player being a bust. ElToro isn't a bust. He hasn't lived up to the hype. Blame the hype, not the player.

A bust would be someone like Leon Hart, who was hyped, and never made a significant contribution.

A non-bust would be someone like Kodi Burns. He didn't live up to the hype, but he has definitely made significant contributions to Auburn football. If you thought 2008 was bad, it would have been a lot worse without some of the plays Kodi made with his feet.

Caudle is the starting holder...or so much can be inferred by Byrum talking about the importance of them spending time together as reported by Bitter. Does that put hin ahead or behind Kodi Burns on the QB depth chart?

We can at least say that Caudle is the starting clip board holder.

5:36 PM

re: Caudle as #1 holder...
I don't know, PF, but it should cut down on his INTs.

a few days advance notice would be helpful to make sure we are here. Or you can just sleep on the front porch if we're not.

5:38 PM

Does the fg/pat holder carry a clipboard? I thought tht was reserved for people who might actually have a chance to throw (on plays other than bad snaps, of course).

5:39 PM

I'm going to be terrified every tine Wes lines up. If the snapper doesn't get it right and Caudle has to throw, we're talking touchback or 100 yard INT.

And now, young JHag, my dreams of the Brandon Knight-JHag backcourt opening the Auburn Arena next season are crushed.

Crushed.

Naw, we good, Jhag. You didn't go to another SEC school. Otherwise, I'd have to petition the man to have the franchise tag taken off.

The NCAA, though, might want to quiz you about the car and the cash inducements to go to Tally.

Tax day tomorrow. If in Montgomery, post office will not extend the hours like normal. Better get the return in by 6:00pm. I gotta go write a check tonight. Joe Biden says it is my patriotic duty to pay taxes. spoken by someone that signs the back of a check and not the front of one.

The coaches have come up with snappy names for things such as Tiger Trek, Tiger Prowl, and Big Cat Weekend. Someone get them to work on some for A-Day, maybe the Tiger Bowl or something. Man, I can't believe they haven't done it already.

I ate in Ft Meade today and noticed a 2004 Ft Meade High football poster that had FAH on it. I couldn't figure out how he would have been on the team in 04. Later in the night I realized Ft Meade is a middle/high school.

Junkyard Wars? When was the last time you turned on the TV? Seriously awesome show, though. Junkyard Wars/ Battle Bots was a great lineup.

Calipari signs two of the top recruits in the country, while Barbee was sighted wasting 20 minutes in line at Chick Fil A, followed by the AU Baseball game in the VIP booth. Guess who wins? (Hint: it isn't Barbee, even though his day sounds pretty good to me).

I saw on the news that a mother duck was taken by hawk. The two remaining ducks are now protected by chicken wire. They did not consider that the hawk may also have chicks to feed. It was obviously the bad guy.

Well. I hate to follow Nazi's.

Good morning and happy tax day to you Hotties. Hope you enjoy doing your patriotic duty of paying the man. It's also Hot Wife's birthday. She'll never read this but rest assured that I've already told her happy birthday in person.

Hi Hotties,
Been at Toyota for an hour now. Fun way to spend a vacation day. I like Pawn Stars, even though the show makes me want to fast for a month. One episode had an old map! One from a mid 18th century London magazine of an Amercian colony or colonies...I don't remember. They made way too much fuss over it; it wasn't that special.

Schindler was a mensch. I'm not going to say that Nazis "get a bad rap," though. The perception and blame is justified.

Opening in October will be Broadway play about Vince Lombardi. Saw on news this morning that NFL will help produce it. As a former personal friend* of Lombardi, I look forward to seeing it.

*as defined by riding on an elevator with him in a Baltimore hotel and asking for his autograph.

Lombardi was before my time, but I don't imagine him as a Broadway musical kind of guy.

PF- Where to begin. I see you are ripping Kennesaw State for their new $16M dollar stadium without having the facts. The facts are these: the money coming for the stadium are made up of Private Donations and alumni giving, not anything to do with the public budgets, Women's soccer is actually a revenue generating sport for KSU and lastly, the Atlanta Beat Women's professional team will be playing there as well as KSU. Easy for you to rip them without knowledge of what is going on. My wife works for KSU and the stadium is a big deal for the students and alumni, especially since their investment in the place wasn't 100%. She is also getting furloughed, and if this stadium had come from public funds it would not have happened. Also, to rip KSU for having more women's sports than Men sports is ludicrous. I have two girls and love that KSU has all the women's sports that they do. I'm looking forward to taking them to a game in the new stadium. But please, go ahead and keep ripping what you don't know and women's sports or the "lack" of men sports. I love Title IX and always have and so be it if the women have more sports than the men. It won't be long before KSU has a football team.

Lombardi singing would be hilarious. Speaking of hilarious, I just read this news bite from the 1889 Roanoke Beacon, published in Washington County, NC:

A STRANGE ROCK. - The latest excitement is caused by the reported Electric rock, found near Morehead City, this State.It seems as if a certain locality in that section has been visited by an unearthly noise of late and no one had tried to find from whence it came, until last week, when a gentleman discovered this rock. By applying the telephone wire to it, it was found that the noise was caused by the vibration of the voices of Chinamen.
This rock is supposed to connect from this side of the earth to the other. A committee has been appointed to investigate the matter, which will visit China and try to find the other end of this strange rock. Be this true it will not be long before communication will be obtainable directly the earth, as well as under the sea.

So, did someone get a free trip to China out of this ruse?

To Auburn this afternoon!!!!

The problem with the soccer situation at Kennesaw State is that it is a manifestation of the insidious Europeanization of our sovereign nation. It creeps in here, as well, with discussions of European soccer teams, who should be grateful that we saved their 244s back in World War II.

In my Contract with HABOTN, we will never speak of soccer again -- unless Auburn becomes competitive or starts a men's program.

Soccer was not good to me yesterday. It happens.

I do have some good news. After a 6 month hiatus from trivia, my friends and I returned to continue our quest for the no. 1 spot and 50 bucks at our local pizza chain.

We were shorthanded, as we usually have 6 players and we only had 4. We played fair and were sitting in 6th place going into the final question, about 7 points from first.

We bet the max 15 points on the final question and got it right to take down the win and the 50 bucks. Our randomly chosen team name we've never used before: Cam Newton 4 Heisman.

I personally think it's an omen. A harbinger of good things to come. And to think, this happened the week of A-Day. Coincidence? I think not.

Soccer has not been good to me for two weeks now.

I'm hoping that changes on Saturday, or on June 12 in Rustenberg, South Africa.

Failing that, Auburn better beat Alabama this year or else my sports Gods have totally forsaken me.
