Scrimmage report, 4/10
Courtesy of Auburn's official Twitter page*, we know that Cam Newton scored on a short run, Mario Fannin scored on a 65-yard run and Demond Washington intercepted a pass.
*Auburn tweeting information from the scrimmage while concurrently barring media from the event is lame, weak, duplicitous and wrong.
*The scrimmage lasted 80 plays. "We got accomplished what we wanted."
*On Mario Fannin's long TD run: ``It was a really nice run. He caught a crease in the defense, did a really nice job cutting back across the pursuit. There were some really nice runs in there where the tailbacks -- their vision was really good."
*On the QBs: It appeared they were really high-percentage with their completion rate today.
*On the QB rotation: ``We rotated them basically with how the flow of the scrimmage went. If you were working with the orange group, you'd say with the orange group -- whether it was a three-and-out or an 80-yard drive."
*Chizik praised Emory Blake for making people miss today.
*On Cam Newton's short touchdown run being a harbinger of Auburn's future short-yardage plans: "He's a big, physical guy. You have your hands full trying to tackle him. Him running in the open field, that could be challenging for defenses overall."
OTHER NOTES OF INTEREST
*Walk-on DB Woody Parramore intercepted a pass.
*Newton rushed for a score and hit Darvin Adams on a screen pass for another.
*Demond Washington intercepted two passes. We believe they were both off Neil Caudle.
*We believe Clint Moseley threw a touchdown pass. That's based on anecdotal evidence.
*Coaches universally praised Emory Blake and DeAngelo Benton.
*Surprise, surprise -- offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn said he hasn't made a decision about which quarterbacks will leave spring in the top spots.
