Jay. Have you any information that the coaches DON't have confidence in Trotter, or are you basing your choice of Moseley on positive comments about him?


3:27 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

I think I just saw Scottie B on TV. He's just barely to the right of home plate, way up high.

3:28 PM

Hey, I know. Lets put a guy in at Wildcat that can't complete a wide open pass down field and can't really outrun anyone, or add a NEW dimension to the offense.

Jay. Is any mention going on regarding wildcat?

I like how Coach Boulware says "striking" the ball when talking about punters/kickers. I've often believed the notion that the kicking specialists are very much like golfers in that so much of their game is mechanics and mental preparation.

Just an opinion on Moseley. I think Trotter is valuable and valued here and all ...

3:36 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

All I've seen of Moseley is what you've shown me, JGT. But I've had very good vibes about him since the day he signed. I've been on Phred's Moseley train from the get go. Or was it Freep's train. I get the Ph's and F's confused.

Heyward isn't ready for the bigs, he needs another year in AAA.

Lol, Wake.

3:48 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Time will tell on Heyward.

My guess is that's he'll struggle in May and June before going .285/.340/.485 after the AS break.

3:51 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Plus, Heyward never touched AAA! He barely touched AA.

Also, Obama was clearly aiming for that batters head. There is no other reason to throw a pitch where he did.

3:52 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

Yeah I thought about that after I said it. I predict he won't hit a homerun all season. Yeah thats right not a single one.

3:54 PM  
Blogger Spongeworthy said...

And I value that opinion Jay. You're there and I'm not. My opinion is based on some dude's I know that see practice occasionally. Every time they see Trotter, they say he's looked good. Looked better than Burns (not hard to do), Caudle and others last spring. Then cut down by knee injury. I saw him a lot in HS. To be fair, I know nothing about Moseley, other than as Phred says, he's a winnah...

3:54 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

If you've got Zambrano on your fantasy team....sorry.

3:56 PM  
Blogger Spongeworthy said...

Agree with everyone else, Cam's got to be the guy. They wouldn't waste a JC scholly on him if he wasn't.

Regarding Caudle, I think he's sentimental favorite of many, but the knock on him is and always has been to date, he looks great one play, then absolutely makes the bonehead throw (INT) the next. don't think these coaches are going to stand for bonehead int's. We can't afford to give the ball away.

3:58 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Malzahn worked diligently to keep Moseley here after he pondered a transfer during the winter.

That tells me Malzahn has plans for the kid. I don't know how that will change next February when I expect Auburn to sign at least one major QB prospect.

3:58 PM  
Blogger Spongeworthy said...

Jay. Have you any further insight on Barbee's progress so far? Still think we will get a couple of difference makers.

3:59 PM  
Blogger Spongeworthy said...

Jay. Exactly. That much I know and agree on. That's why it wouldn't shock me that if they really like Trotter as well, they may name both co#2.

I don't think we can afford to lose a QB to transfer now that Tyrik is gone. Maybe his leaving helps up keep Moseley as well.

4:04 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Barbee is in a dead period right now ... through the 7th. He's been at the Final Four doing his thing. I'm aiming to meet with him this week. I'll update you then.

4:07 PM  
Blogger Spongeworthy said...

Thanks Jay. Appreciate all you do. I'm out. Need to do some work.

4:11 PM  
Blogger Eric said...

Cam was brought in to do one thing and one thing only and that is to be the starting qb. The guy is an absolute physical beast, especially when he stands beside PPL or McCalebb. I agree that Moseley will be the 2nd string b/c he has the most upside. He is young and we hope Cam will be the starter the next 2 years. Moseley will be ready to start his RS. Jr. year after getting 3 years of development.

4:16 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

So far so good on ESPN 3. Very nice.

4:23 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Eric, that depends on what Auburn signs in February. They're going after some really good QBs.

4:23 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Of course, I look like a physical beast while standing next to 5-7 PPL.

Blogger chip chip said...

whoever AU signs @ QB in 2011 should not affect mosley or trotter. caudle will be gone, newton will have one more year available.

mosley and trotter will both have the advantage of a few years in the system over any new kid coming in playing. and they will understand firsthand the uphill battle the new qb will face in learning the malzhoffense. unless he is a total physical freak and a man among boys, they shouldn't have much to worry about in 2012. does anyone really want a tru frosh starting anyway? we all know what that leads to: Ls. even for the guy who finishes #2, he is likely an injury away from being the man. unless the new kid on the block's last name is tebow, i'll prefer to sit him a year or two regardless.

Thanks PF for the links earlier. My friend in Chi-town says Samadzija may do some double duty with the bears.

i'm fairly happy with the braves today i mean 16 runs is not too shabby. Making Zambrano leave the game with a ERA of 54.00 is always fun

5:55 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

With regard to Moseley, I have liked what the coaches said about him when he was on the scout team, he is a big QB with decent speed/size, and he came from a small highschool, which means he could be underrated. Those are the things that have caught my eye, although what is missing is actually seeing him playing on the field, which should figure in there somewhere.

6:11 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

As far as Trotter goes, I have seen good comments, but the comments I heard gave me the impression he is going to end up being a coach some day. I am not sure why I got that impression. It has been a while since I read much on him.

6:12 PM

6:26 PM

Sorry, I meant to say that I was surprised that Malzahn doesn't have his QB's exclusively grip the football by its laces, but instead whichever way is fasted to get rid of the ball.

Even so, that still kind of floors me.

Sean Marshall had two 2/3 perfect innings this afternoon, and Samardzija had a 108.01 ERA.

Braves fans should be happy today...

I am happy also... Pujols with 2 big fly's, local kid Rasmus with a shot... Nice opening day for my Cards! They shelled Cincy's Reds today!

PF, the guy you thought was Scottie B... was he dressed head to toe in Under Armour? If not, it was probably an imposter.

6:57 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

I am a Braves fan at heart and have been for 100 years, but when we moved to Cincinnati I had to pull for the Reds. Mr. Cincy pulled for the Big Red Machine when he was a kid. It is just a fun club to pull for, even though they don't win that much! I like the Cards, too, cause my parents lived in St. Louis for a few years and I loved going to games there.

But that just means we're closer to the real thing:-)

Any truth to the rumor that Shoemaker is using footballs he found floating near the top shelf of Terry Daniel's closet?

I heard Brad Stevens was upset after Butler won Saturday night... apparently the game went too late and he missed his high school prom.

Butler is getting it inside trying to draw fouls on Zoubek

8:26 PM  
Blogger Miller said...

Butler can't get anything to drop... They're gonna have to hit shots to have a chance.

8:27 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Bruins 2 Capitals 2 with 5 minutes to go.

Bruins in 7th place currently, but 9th & 10th place teams could still bump Boston out of the playoffs if the Bruins don't get some points in the final week. Caps have best record in NHL wrapped up already.

UPDATE - headed to OT, tied at 2.

8:37 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

uh oh, Caps get a PP in OT. We've got 4 on 3 hockey. With Ovechkin part of the 4, that's just not a fair matchup.

Yep, I couldn't even finish typing that before the Caps score PP goal to win in OT.

8:40 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

This Butler team is very similar to Auburn's Mens team, almost identical.

8:44 PM  
Blogger Miller said...

If you mean that both teams play with 5 players on the court... then yes, identical.

8:47 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Well, that and they are all pretty short. The strategy is similar, except Butler players move around on offense. And the other minor difference is the Butler players move about twice as quickly. Other than that, they are identical.

8:49 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

no more hockey on my tv tonight. Wake me up when the talk returns to AU football.

8:49 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Man, someone should have told our players they are allowed to move around like that on offense. It seems like a good strategy.

8:50 PM  
Blogger Miller said...

I wasn't aware that AU's team moved at all on offense last year? I must have missed that one time...

8:53 PM  
Blogger Fearless.True said...

Wait you mean auburn played offense, i don't remember that

8:53 PM

Well... they threw the ball wildly in the general direction of the basket at times... that was their 'offense'

Duke is ahead by 1, but I considered that half a win for Butler. They proved they could hang with them and you have to think those Duke big guys are going to get tired trying to keep up with the amazing pace Butler sets.

Michael - I think you're WAY off to say that these two teams are "so-so" Did you watch how they guarded? Did you see the team concept? Passing? Shooting? Defending? Two very good teams.......

But in more important news -- I finished 2nd in the HABOTN bracket contest

10:55 PM

In the pantheon of NCAA champs, indeed jhag, Duke this year is so so. Among other teams this year, sure, Duke is probably one of the 5 best. Also, Brett Favre's career is vastly overrated.
