Hunter Morris named POY

Hey everyone. Auburn 1B Hunter Morris has been named the SEC's Player of the Year.

He is Auburn's second POY. The first?

You guessed it: Tim Hudson in 1997.

Morris leads the SEC in slugging percentage (.767), hits (94), home runs (20) and total bases (1818), is second in runs scored (60), third in RBI (67) and fifth in batting average (.398).

Morris is only the second player in SEC history to win both Freshman of the Year and POY. The other was Stephen Head from Ole Miss.

Player of Year.. batter of year....

seemed better than POY FOY substance...

Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

There were a bunch of guys named all SEC, and the Scholar-Athlete of the Year, too. You can find it all in my live blog in the last thread, or later in the "more to come."

Exciting pre-tournament substance. I am looking forward to tomorrow. Let the elephant hunt begin.

6:40 PM  
Blogger Miller said...

I good post season and Mr. POY could be a candidate to wear golden spikes...

6:49 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

Where would be the best website to follow the game tomorrow?

6:52 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

Will there be a live blog of tomorrow's elephant hunt?

6:56 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

CH=B,

If you're just looking for a stattracker, SECsports.com has one (Auburntigers.com also will have a link to it). XM radio is broadcasting the tourney, and it will be on SportsSouth for TV...I'm sure there will be a channelsurfing.com site set up by someone,but that's always last mintue. I'll email you if you need someone to locate it in the morning.

SoCCEr and MLB

Have to choose between a rare opportunity to watch the Braves (damn you, TBS!...I know it's been three or four years, but I'm still holding a grudge), or watching the USMNT not use their arms.

7:14 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

Thanks PF

7:15 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

I wasn't able to check in much today. How much hate was spread today?

7:16 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

It was pretty quiet, actually....except for the hundred posts I had when live blogging batting practice/awards/interviews that the SEC had streaming online.

7:19 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Czech goalie just screwed up bigtime. US 1-0.

7:21 PM  
Blogger scottie b carmichael said...

Can't wait for some early morning hate tomorrow. It's gonna help make the work day fly by.

7:25 PM  
Blogger scottie b carmichael said...

PF had one of the best non JGT live blogs ever earlier today. MJT would be jealous.

7:26 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

Sorry I missed. We have to really bring the hate. Someone call the dude from Major League to put a curse on the walmartians.

7:28 PM  
Blogger chip chip said...

wowee wow wow! impressive...

now if only AU can bang its way to a cws trophy. that's one that you get for winning a playoff so it means something.

7:31 PM  
Blogger WEEMAN said...

CH=B Jobu has been summoned. Also got any info on Big Cat?

7:38 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

US Goalie looked LAZY.

7:47 PM  
Blogger Miller said...

I will be working all day tomorrow... outdoors... away from radio/tv/internet...
I may need someone to send me text message play by play (or at least major updates).
Any volunteers?

7:47 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

...also bad defense.

7:47 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Miller,

I can handle it....or I can hold my phone to the speaker and you can hear it.

7:49 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I'll be live blogging at times.

I'm planning to meet with Hoopie at some point during the game. That would necessitate a HABOTN communication blackout.

7:51 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Big Cat.

Luper said he couldn't give me an exact number of prospects expected to attend, but I'm guessing it'll be in the 30 range.

The talent won't be as concentrated as it was last summer, but I expect a bunch of notable prospects to take part.

I'll be there on Sunday for FULL HABOTN COVERAGE.

7:52 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Outstanding crowd in Miami for Braves @ Marlins. At least dozens of people there (if anything like previous Braves games I've attended there, at least half are Braves fans).

7:57 PM  
Blogger wartiger said...

Congragulation Mr.Morris. War Eagle to ya!! Thanks...

7:59 PM  
Blogger Miller said...

Preciate the coverage... blogger Tate...

IF AU makes it to the Saturday games, I plan to make an appearance at Regions Park...
Please, everyone... contain your excitement.

7:59 PM  
Blogger Miller said...

you got my # for text scores? IF not, email me, or you may be able to get it off my FB page...

8:07 PM  
Blogger WEEMAN said...

CH=B lets test your hate. Last football season an Auburn bowl win against Northwestern and Bama win vs Texas or Auburn loss and bama loss?

8:09 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

False dilemma Weeman.

The 2 events are unconnected.

8:19 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Indeed...and even if they were, never give up a win for the good guys. If your hate is for any other reason than love of AU, it is misguided. Love of AU always calls for the win.

8:22 PM  
Blogger Miller said...

weeman... Auburn Win and Bama inihilation

Actually, I would wish bama a horrendous sickness the day before the game that would force them to forfeit the game...

8:23 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

GOAL! USA with the equalizer!

8:32 PM  
Blogger WEEMAN said...

That is why I asked CH=B his hate comsumes him. I believe he would have taken an Auburn loss if Bama would have loss(which means no MNC). Just a what if question guys. But the good news is I got word Rose will go public with his commit after Big Cat.

8:32 PM  
Blogger scottie b carmichael said...

DM I would be happy to text score updates if needed. It may be hard for PF to live blog n text but he's pretty good. :)

8:33 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

If CH=B feels that way, he's an idiot. Anyone who wishes losses on AU is an idiot.

8:38 PM  
Blogger scottie b carmichael said...

Ditto!

8:40 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

If the US plays defense like this in the World Cup, they won't make it out of the group round.

8:41 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

Weeman, you are correct that my hate for the walmartians runs deep. My love for Auburn is greater. I am not one of those fans that hates them more than I love Auburn. However, I would have traded and outback bowl loss for the infidels to have lost the MNC. The best case scenario is what Miller said.

8:55 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

PF, don't get what I said wrong. I do not wish a loss on Auburn, but to give up one win for the hearts and souls of all walmartians is a fair trade.

8:56 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

Anyone on here that says they wouldn't have loved to see the mullet nations world collapse in exchange for one game is an idiot.

8:58 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

I want Auburn to win em all and wouldn't sacrifice a win no matter what the outcome for Walmartians.

8:59 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

As for BCW there will be several high profile players including 3-4 RBs and at least 2 QBs. There will be a big presence on the defensive side of the ball as well. I expect a minimum of 2 commitments directly following this weekend. I am not the expert though. WTC knows all.

Big Cats and Ding Dongs all in one weekend. What more could you want?

9:01 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

I would love Auburn to win them all as well.

9:02 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Me and Seanzie are idiots, because I'm with him. The Outback Bowl was one of the most exciting games in all of college football last year, even if the team didn't get two rings for winning it.

9:05 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

I'm happy that the coaches have BCW, but I don't personally feel a need to know anything about it.

9:07 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

The game was great and I loved the win, but given the choices laid out by Weeman I would trade that one game. Now best case scenario would have been for use to win the UT to win.

9:08 PM  
Blogger WEEMAN said...

CH=B I got your 2 commits QB Frazier and CB Rose. We might get a few more commits from unheralded recruits whose stock I suspect will soar after camps. And one other question are you Charles from Reeltown?

9:10 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Yeah, their hearts and souls don't matter much to me. They suck with or without them (though I'd argue that they really have neither). I want them to lose them all, but the only one that is connected is the Iron Bowl.

9:11 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

Good point PF.

Weeman that was funny. I kind of take that as an insult. That dude is a complete idiot. Are you Todd from Ozark?

9:15 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I'm Jay G from Montgomery and I'm saying: No unpleasant bickering.

Pass it forward.

The love, I mean.

9:20 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

no bickering here.

9:20 PM  
Blogger WEEMAN said...

ch=b I'm lost. Evidently you got my joke but you stumped me.

9:21 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

What about pleasant bickering? Who am I kidding, I'm not pleasant when I'm delivering roses, much less bickering.

9:24 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

Weeman, Todd is just a walmartian I know. You kind of sounded (typed) like him and your profile is similar as well.

9:25 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

PF - you're like an ill-tempered Sea Bass.

9:25 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

Kick his arse Sea Bass

9:27 PM  
Blogger WEEMAN said...

Sorry for you CH=B. Does anyone know if Brey Cook will make BCW? Heard he narrowed his choices to 4 schools today.

9:32 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

I hear Cook is not coming to BCW. Not sure why just now. i hope he comes to AU but I think he is headed to OU ultimately.

9:36 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

Don't know but Brey likes Auburn a lot, but momma likes OU.

9:36 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

News is funny tonight. Navy dropping Sonar Buoys through people's roofs in N. Florida. People hacking roadside signs to make them read "No Tacos." in S. Florida. Total Chaos and Anarchy!

9:37 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

I saw today that Miami is back on top of the list for most violent crimes per 100k.

9:40 PM  
Blogger WEEMAN said...

wtc and ch=b we must ahve some of the same sources. Also heard he will not be BCW. Think in the end it comes down to OU(why?) and ARK for Cook.

9:42 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

CH=B,

Not at all surprised.
I'm just glad that I am officially done working in Miami forever...or at least on a regular basis. I might still have to go down from time to time. I hate that place.

9:44 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

I would like to visit South Beach at least once. I would also like to check out a Dolphins' game since I am a huge fan. other than that I don't know why else I would care to go.

9:46 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

Later guys (and any gals that might be viewing)

9:47 PM  
Blogger Miller said...

Scotty B... I'll let you and PF work out who sends the text updates... I don't want you two fighting over me... As long as I get updates... I appreciate you both.

6:29 AM  
Blogger CH=B said...

Good morning hate to you all.

Hoopie you must have traveled a different 459 than I do. The section from Liberty Park to Trussville is terrible. Most of the roads in the Greater Bammerham area are.

6:35 AM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Eff yeah. SunSports will have the game on. Booya!

6:39 AM  
Blogger ehyou said...

I was fretting about this game earlier in the week. But this morning I awoke with inner peace. We shall annihilate the infidels.

7:08 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I awoke this morning with a lot of inner snot and phlegm, just like the previous 3 mornings. Not sure if that's a sign or what.

7:14 AM

Interstate 20 is Missi-louis-ian in its composition. Worst stretch of road EVAH.

Ready to win today. Anything less is unacceptable.

7:23 AM  
Blogger Norm said...

ehyou & tht - I awoke yesterday morning after just a few hours sleep. I've been awake ever since. Being this tired will serve a purpose in that I'm likely to be extra crabby, take even less crap than usual and Hate even more than most would think possible. So, I've got that going for me...which is nice.

Keep Hate Alive!

I got the same thing, ehyou. I think I hate blackouts almost as much as I HATE BAMA

I hate that stuff on streaming media is subject to blackouts. Hey idiots, if I could watch it on the tele, I would!!!

8:28 AM

Good morning from beautiful Colorado Springs! Just a quick check in to say hi as we head off to the graduation. Didn't have a chance to catch up on all the posts, but I hope everyone is doing well. Good luck AU!!! Tylerson will be checking the game on his phone.

or you could just take the antibiotics I'm taking.

8:50 AM

I think it's more widely available since it went to ESPN3 recently. You might want to check at your house again in case you need it in the future.

8:54 AM
