Practice report, 4/19

Hey everyone. Auburn's final spring practice has ended. Here's what we learned today:
  • Coach Gene Chizik said nothing new about the quarterbacks.

  • Chizik said Auburn may make a decision at quarterback tomorrow, during the early summer months, in the middle of the summer, at the end of the summer or during two-a-days.

  • Chizik said news from the Shon Coleman front has been positive during the past 10 days. It's possible that Coleman will report with the other signees this summer.

  • Coleman's mother, DeKeishia Tunstall, posted on her Facebook page Friday that her son was back in a Memphis hospital due to low sodium levels.

  • Chizik said he has spoken occasionally with QB Tyrik Rollison. The coach said Auburn will make Rollison's intentions clear at semester's end ... but curiously didn't rule out the possibility of Rollison returning. I still consider than a 1-in-1,000 shot.

  • Chizik said the plan to move Daren Bates, who currently is out with a shoulder injury, is in tact. He's expected to play linebacker next year. I get the sense it'll be a hybrid deal ... mostly linebacker, some nickel, some safety.

  • QB Clint Moseley (left), as I wrote the other day, still feels like he's not really in the mix at No. 1 quarterback right now. Some people believe he'll transfer. He said today: "Why would I ever leave Auburn? I'm on full scholarship at an SEC school. It's my dream."

  • Assistant coach Curtis Luper said he carefully watched TB Mario Fannin this spring for signs of tentativeness considering his injury-riddled past. Luper didn't see it. "He doesn't shy away. He's a complete back. He's naturally inclined to hit 'em in the mouth."

  • DE Antoine Carter said he has taken up Mike Blanc's offer to go to Haiti. They're going next month. Blanc, if you recall, said nobody aside from Mike McNeil would make that trip. Carter said several players are going ... including Cam Newton.

  • Of the trip, Carter said: "It's going to be like a mission trip. We're going to build stuff ... build it back up."

  • Carter said he's headed to Birmingham on Friday to consult with a tattoo-removal specialist. He wants to have the "HOT BOY" tattoos removed from his face. "It was a bad childhood mistake and it's time to get it fixed," he said.

Did anyone ask why Chiz changed shirts at halftime?

12:11 PM  
Blogger Brother Jet said...

Bates dances too much after tackles. If he stayed at safety, it would negatively affect recruiting as "The Safety Dance" went out of vogue in 1984-85 range.

He clearly must play linebacker.

I think if I had heard a giant sucking sound from my parents ... nevermind.

1:46 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

That Scarbinsky article seems like a lot of ho ha. The players after 2006 includes players that haven't had their senior season so wouldn't be likely to show up on the all decade team. Yea, recruiting declined in 2008 and there was heavy attrition in 2007, but that article was largely a lot of bull hockey.

1:49 PM

OK, just to clarify - "collective gasping" caused by the horrific sight of MJT all tatted with a political statement up on his former boyish face. Not "collective gasping" brought about by anything else.

Norm - even by that age, my parents had no gasps left for the things I did. Or any sucking sounds.

And yes, I was pretty young for such a tat. But I figured instead of something like "Hot Boy", I should get a tattoo I could grow into. You know, a little more adult. Whoops.

2:07 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Scar's column is worth something only if printed on soft paper that would not irritate when used to whip after a trip to the bathroom.

There is no secret that 2008 was a down recruiting year in general in the state and that it also coincided with the arrival and hype of the great Saban.

It is also not news that the 2007 class had a lot of attritionm but the 2006 and 2007 classes were two of the highest ranked classes we had under Tuberville. The other class being 2002, if I recall correctly.

Yes, that article is prime butt whipping material.

2:07 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

Butt wiping or butt whipping?

2:13 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

whip?

2:14 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

It's hard for me to read a whole lot into what Clint did. Really any of the QB's. Spring Games are vanilla enough as it is with regard to the passing game, but throw in the fact that basically none of our DB's were playing and it's hard to say how much credit each QB deserves for the passes they threw, not to mention the lack of a viable pass rush. Trotter, Caudle, and Mosley all looked good throwing the ball, but it was like bowling with the bumpers pulled out. It was hard not to look good, even if the throws looked like genuinely good throws themselves.

that said, it's slightly troubling that Cam didn't do a better job passing the ball, but it's only one practice out of fifteen. Maybe it's been the complete opposite in a true scrimmage situation.

2:16 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

There is a big difference between butt whipping and butt whiping. So a little clarification might be needed.

Either way, not a fan, huh Steve?

2:17 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Hope you're right, Sean. If United can win out the last three games with the Blues facing a trip to Anfield in a couple of weeks time, we may just pull this off.

2:18 PM

No, Scar is kind of full of it.

While there are fair things to criticize about Tuberville, and to some degree recruiting, that article was pure B.S.

I don't know why you have trouble swallowing the facts, Eddie, but the interpretation was hilarious. I do love it when someone like that makes it so clear he knows nothing about what he is writing. It is hilarious, even if it is tough for you to swallow.

What happened to the "no talk about old coaches" rule? Yeah, Tubs definitely slipped in the latter years and let the program fall off a bit, but you know what? So did Dy. So did Jordan. We don't linger on that too much.

I know Tubs is more recent history and we're still feeling the effects, but it's history. Who cares? I know Steve's the one who brought it up, but just let him have his rant and move on.

Wow, I can't believe an Apple employee was dumb enough to lose a next generation iPhone. That is a get you fired type of mistake where I work.

2:31 PM  
Blogger michael said...

I agree that Tubs went downhill a bit in recruiting, but the article is misrepresentative. Notice the list goes all the way back to 1997. That would make sense, since everyone who made the team performed at their peak as upper class men. But to be fair, using this list, can't you only go through the recruiting of the 2006 year or so for an apples to apples comparison? That is the 10 years of recruiting that had the most effect on the all decade team.

But yes, recruiting is worlds better now.

2:32 PM

Also, rumor starting to float that Iphone will stay strictly AT&T now. Not sure what is happening there.

When did Driskel commit to Florida? That is a bit of a shock.

As for Jordan, he still have some very good teams late in his career, although the last season wasn't so hot.

We could get into some racial stuff surrounding Jordan that had a lot to do with the rise of Bryant, but it is old news.

2:34 PM

Driskel committed today.

LeMay lists us in Top 3. He seems a long shot.

Frazier seems like best bet of top QB Prospect with a chance to commit to us.

michael, that is it exactly. The facts were distorted making the entire article a bunch of B.S.

Yes, the 2008 signing class was small and not great, but that article was just goofy.

I also would partially blame Tuberville and crew for the heavy attrition in the 2007 class. There was just too much attrition for it to not have been, at least partially, due to a poor choice of players, even if they were high rated.

2:37 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Dye is a different story, although I actually know less about Dye's departure than Jordan's. I do believe a lot that went on with Dye had to do with his declining health, but I was busy with other things during those years. I watched the games, but wasn't keeping as up to speed with the goings on with the team.

2:39 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

I would say Dye's decline had more to do with NCAA and violations.

2:40 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

And although the 2008 team wasn't great, they were better than many portray. We lost a crap load of close games that season due to the switch to the RFYLK offense. If CTF had lasted the entire season, we may have had a winning season, but I kind of doubt it. Todd's arm was toast and we basically didn't have another QB.

2:41 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

I will say this. Tub recruiting Darvin Adams, T-Zach and Q. Carr and all three of those guys are alright. He also recruited Ben Tate and Mario Fannin, along with 2 of the 4 possible starting QBs next year. We'll see how it pans out.

2:42 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

I think the NCAA issues may have resulted from Dye's declining health. I don't think he had as firm a grasp on the team. Needless to say, the NCAA issues moved Dye down my list of the greatest Auburn coaches. I don't care how many games we win, a coach that knowingly allows that stuff to go on should be fired.

2:43 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Don't look now, but I think Eddie would agree with Steve about Dye.

2:46 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Not many coaches would have jobs anywhere if that were the case.

2:46 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

There is talent on this team. It isn't the talent level that bothers me. It is the attrition. What we saw was totally ridiculous. How many players did we lose to Ole Miss? We aren't just talking academic casualties. I think it had a lot to do with the environment and the disfunctional relationship between the staff and the faculty. Yea, you can blame it on the faculty, but some of the responsibility has to lay with Tuberville. It is clear from some of the player comments, the environment became very bad where the coaches were in a CYA frame of mind.

Yea, there are things I would knock Tuberville for, but some things like the Scar article are misleading.

Also, I don't believe that Borges or CTF wanted Kodi to be the starter. I lay some blame there too. Kodi could have developed into a much better QB if he hadn't been thrown to the wolves so early in his career.

Man, what a rant.

2:48 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

RK, the everyone does it didn't work for my 7 year old and it certainly won't work for coaches.

2:50 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

I agree with Steve on that. Just because others were doing it didn't make it right for us. And for the stories I've heard from past players on how bad it was, it shocking we didn't get busted way earlier. Never the less, Jet will be here to the rescue shortly.

2:55 PM

Did I say "everyone does it" to justify anything? I was just saying going by your anyone who does it and knows about it should be fired criteria there would be long lines at the coaches unemployment line.

Blogger SteveFC said...

Yea, a head coach should let the coordinators do their job. Yea, a guy like Chizik likely has a lot of advice for Roof, but let Roof make the decisions for the defense and hold him accountable.

As for Malzahn, my guess is he wouldn't be around for year two if someone tried to tell him how to run his offense. Someone might ask Houston Nutt about that.

3:05 PM  
Blogger Brother Jet said...

Must ... resist ... urge. Ah, screw it.

What Kevin wrote was a simple analysis of the Auburn All-Decade team.

He left out what I consider the most damning observation: Of the last seven selections recruited, three were "specialists."

Tuberville started our well, recruited well and it fell off. Doesn't mean he's a bad guy, but the selection of the team (which was fairly representative of what happened on the field) tells the story.

from now the other day.

It seems this year, the early pledging of top talent is making all coaches get after it. I know many that woul dlike ot see Au get their top guys coming public with their announcement. Especially when others in the SEC are getting theirs to announce early.

As for what now, it is recruiting season. They also seem to play baseball during it.

Morning Hotties. Today is "Tiger Trek" day for ATL. F4*, Hot Wife and I are going to meet Chiz and Co. Should be fun.

Enjoy Norm. I decided to pass. Hope you have fun. Hoopie will be there I believe.

I realize this is early but I would like to get a sense of how the depth chart will look for the DEFENSE next year.

Any thoughts?

7:21 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Sensi- Thin and young IMO. Offense will be bailing the D out again I believe. Should start getting better in 2011.

7:31 AM  
Blogger Sensi said...

Everyone repeat after me:

when referring to the defense in 2010 the phrase "work-in-progress" is appropriate.

7:35 AM  
Blogger Sensi said...

Also, I nominate the phrase "Cam Show" to be used when referring to QB play.

CH=B,
We had a great A-Day. We were in Auburn, the weather was just perfect and all of my family was there - can it get any better??

Although my daughter was pretty tired and was diagnosed with mono when she got home. We thought the tiredness might mean baby, but that baby was mono!

I think we'll be a little more stout on defense this year. Barring a huge rash of injuries, we're going to have more depth this year. I think we'll be sollid against the run and suspect in the secondary at times. LB's should be really good if we can find one or two more guys to back them up.

It still won't be the kind of Auburn defense we've come to expect, but it'll be decent progress compared to last year. Don't put too much stock into A-Day. From what I could tell, our actual number one's who played on that side of the ball did solid enough just playing vanilla.

Cincy, did you get to meet Jason Campbell or Wesley Person at the breakfast?

8:20 AM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

Norm, Eddie --I've got a planning commission meeting in Chatsworth, Ga. at 7 pm that won't be over until 8:30. I tried to reshuffle the agenda, but those folks are either UGA or VOLS and don't care about Chizco.

I was looking forward to seeing some Hotties and a bunch of ATL-AU folks that I haven't seen in years. I'm betting that Chizco will continue these type events and we'll have more chances.

9:12 AM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

We may have a work in progress defense, but at least it is progressing.

All we need is for a few of our injured DBs to be able to get back into playing form and we won't be a total patchwork back there.

9:18 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Hoopie- Things starting to pick up for you?

9:28 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Hopefully we will have more quality depth on D this coming year than we had last year. We should have games, much less almost full seasons where two players hardly ever left the field at LB.

10:06 AM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

E-Bro, I am with you on the defense. At first I was concerned watching A-Day until I realized how little our starters played. That, along with being vanilla, set the offense up for success.

It also made the QBs look great when they were throwing to receivers that weren't covered by the starters.

10:42 AM

Is this thing on?

Yeah, on life support.

11:27 AM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

The only thing I'm concerned about is our opponents' well being after we blow them off the field. Fans included. And to be completely honest, I'm not all that concerned about it.

Anybody else hear the sonic boom from the space shuttle this morning?

11:37 AM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

I heard the Sonic Boom that occured when Cam Newton's latest pass re-entered.

11:38 AM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

I don't care if his passes are causing sonic booms or quacking sounds, as long as he can complete them.

11:53 AM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

There will be no Heisman campaign next year. Word is, they've already reserved it for Cam Netwon.

12:03 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

That's Cam Newton. I don't know who Cam Netwon is.

12:03 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

I predict we will not allow a 100 yard rusher next year and that Mark Ingram leaves early just because he can't face Auburn again after 2 straight seasons of humiliation.

12:10 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

I don't think our D will be that good, but it will be good. We have some experienced starters returning and a lot of talented young guys to back them up. I think we will be ok. I still predict 9-3 to 10-2.

12:19 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

My prediction?

Pain.

12:23 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

Anyone else see where radical muslims are pissed at the South Park creators?

12:29 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

Who are the radicals not pissed off at?

12:30 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

I'm still staying within the 8-4 to 9-3 margin.

I know our schedule is favorable in a lot of ways, but it has some holes, still mainly the 11 games in a row thing. Whoever the QB is, he's got to be able to go to bat right away with a tough Thursday nighter in Stark-vegas. That place will be amped up and I think State is possible bowl team this year.

That game should set the tone for the season, one way or another.

12:30 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Just one more group for Trey Parker and Matt Stone to check off their list of people they have pi$$ed off.

They're equal opportunity offenders. The sooner everbody else realizes that, the better.

The episode they did on racism a couple of years ago was, I thought, brilliant.

12:33 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

I loved the Facebook episode.

12:34 PM  
Blogger Brother Jet said...

E-Bro is dead on about the trip to StarkVegas.

It's a BushWhack! Do not seek the treasure!

12:37 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

I'm not worried about the trip to Starkville that much, but the 11 straight games again this year worries me.

It leaves us pretty banged up for the Oct/Nov SEC run.

12:40 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

Any word on if it will be 11 or just 10? I hear we may be moving the UGA game back to accommodate UA's nancy crying.

12:41 PM  
Blogger Brother Jet said...

Thursday night road games are traps.

Got Ole Miss last year. Nearly got us in Columbia the last time we were up there.

12:47 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

If we move the game because of the infidels wishes I will be PISSED

12:49 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

I think it might help us out to move the game.

12:51 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

having the break before the UGA game will give us ample time to rest, and it helps that it's at home.

12:51 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

I don't care, I don't want to give in to those people at all.

12:54 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

That's the wrong attitude. Just my opinion. That's like cutting off the nose to spite the face or whatever.

12:55 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

There is NO WAY our administration would willingly concede the move. The question is, can the SEC force us to?

1:00 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

Carolina and Alabama can both reschedule or UGA and AU can reschedule without affecting the rest of the schedule. I don't think anyone HAS to do anything.

1:02 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

That game in Columbia was the game where we held the ball the entire 3rd quarter.

Maybe I'm underestimating Miss State, but that one doesn't worry me that much.

1:04 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

Auburn should breeze by State. The home games against the two Carolina teams have me a bit worried.

1:08 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

The comments over at al.com are classic today.

1:22 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

By the way, good article on Fannin today, Jay G.

1:24 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

The Carolina/Clemson games will be tough.

As for State, they gave everyone who visited (outside of Bama) a lot of trouble or just beat the crap out of them (Ole Miss). Even w/o Dixon, I think they'll be more solid all the way around. And if Cam is the starter, the crowd will be even more juiced. I expect a victory, but I think it'll be a very tight ball game.

We gotta R-U-N-N-O-F-T.

This has probably been explained at some point, but why doesn't JGT provide links to his MA articles anymore?

2:11 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Mr Chocula...I think it's simply a case of JayG not wanting to go through the trouble of creating a post for every single article he writes. Especially during the football season when he would archive the old articles.

I think he felt too much time was being spent to fulfill said tasks.

I might be wrong.

2:26 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

I think it's because Jay G is lazy.

scottie,
No we didn't get to meet Jason or Wesley, but we did sit at the table with Lloyd Nix and Tommy Lorino which was way cool! They are both very interesting men.

Scott Choco,
What time was the sonic boom? As I was leaving this morning, I heard a loud noise. I was afraid I had backed into the garage door. Wonder if the boom is what I heard? Was it around 8?

2:46 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Don't take MSU lightly. I consider it a trap game. It would be easy for us to overlook them, but they were much improved by the end of last season.

2:47 PM

I suspect Jay stopped providing links to his articles because the server was getting overloaded.

I feel dirty. I am watching the SECCG on CBS College Sports. Yea, Bama is trucking Tebow. I don't like watching Bama, but somehow watching Tebow getting trucked gives me a warm feeling inside.
