Auburn football lands a commitment

Hey everyone. Just a quick note to say our friends at AuburnSports.com, AuburnUndercover.com and ITAT are reporting that Auburn has secured a commitment from Mobile defensive tackle JaBrian Miles.

He currently stands 6-foot-2 and weighs approximately 260 pounds.

Miles, who plays at Davidson High, picked Auburn over offers from Alabama, Florida, Ole Miss and Florida State ... among others.

Unrelated to anything else, why is election time so crazy in Alabama? Signage everywhere, commercials constantly, mudslinging... In Georgia, we have a primary coming up in a few weeks, I've been working from home yesterday and today and I think I've noticed a whopping total of SIX commercials for various candidates. The signage is few and far between too (at least in my area it is).

Scotty ..Hatin' on Texas is fun. I traveled to Austin, Texas most every week for 2 years. I soon realized that most of the perceived UTx arrogance is borne out of their inbred independence. You can even bust on them for their propensity for independence.

All that being said, I still think that UTx didn't ask to be in the card game, but played their cards correctly once forced into the game. Which team's alumni wouldn't "expect" the same?

Norm ..for one thing, many more officials are elected in Alabama than Ga. ..Judges, PSC, etc. That makes for more offices on which to vote.

Most Ga. primaries aren't contested this time. We'll see ads once we get into the election.

Jabrian Niles is a very athletic DE, that could develop into a DT... He has good size and very good speed for his size (4.6 40 at 265#)...
He has an impressive offer list and has only been playing D for a year or two... former QB.

He's our first DE commit. I know of at least 3 more very highly regarded DE's that AU has a very good shot at.
This should be a very good DL class!

Hoopie ...

Of course, the University of Texas didn't issue a press release saying the SEC was academically inferior.

Often, actions speak as loud as words.

For example, it was obvious that the Omega House didn't want Larry Kroeger and Kent Dorfman as members. They never told them so, they just kept introducing them to Mohammed, Jugdish, Clayton and Sidney, rather than introducing them to the membership of the Omegas, such as Carl Phillips, editor of the Daily Faberian.

7:50 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

The thing about JaBrian is he already has the size. Many of our DEs have come in to small but added the weight while at Auburn. JaBrien is already 260 something, which is a pretty decent size for a DE. He looked very quick in the video I have seen of him. He could turn into a great one.

Look at these rankings all the way through. I would say the SEC holds it's own in academics. What is the difference in say the 22nd ranked public school and the 39th? I would say probably not much. 8 of the 12 SEC schools rank in the top 64 in the country. That doesn't include Vanderbilt which is private.

9:03 PM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

If UTx had gone to the PAC10, then maybe academic snobbery could be claimed as part of the motive. I haven't seen anything in the UTx actions that would lead me to conclude that perceived lower academic levels was a reason for them to stay away from the SEC. I heard that issue mentioned plenty of times from sports talking heads, aTm fans, etc.

It's simple ..Texas cornered all of the Cheddar and seemingly held the BIG12 together and can now take credit for doing so. One of the first comments I read on the HABOTN regarding expansion was that it was about the gold. UTx absolutely negotiated and took the option that gave them the most gold. I just can't find any way to read anything else into it.

I can more easily accept the speculation that UTx stayed away from the SEC because the competition would make it tuffer for them to get to the BCSCG and and to keep the SEC further away from Texas recruiting. Those 2 items affect wins and ultimately ...Gold.

10:38 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

I'm with Hoopie, I don't think academics was the reason UT didn't come to the SEC. Had they gone to the big 10 (12) or Pac 10 (11) maybe, but I don't think the Big 12 (10) is an academic conference.

In other news, Crawford just fell rounding 3rd on a liner to left field... and still scored. The guy is nuts.

Is there a reason the Big Not XII Anymore can't just call itself the Southwest Conference and be done with it?

In soccer news, someone has figured out how to digitally filter out the vuvuzelas from the World Cup broadcasts. I'm not sure if that's newsworthy or not, I just like saying "digitally filter my vuvuzelas."

i once saw buckethead perform with col. claypool's bucket of bernie brains. he's only about 7' tall. he did the robot during one extended jam.

all instrumental but it was great (i usually hate jam bands).

8:53 AM

Jay Jacobs is on fire right now. One of the best AD's in the league IMO. It is still too early to judge his hires, but the enthusiasm that has been brought to all the major sports programs is unbelievable. Auburn fans now have a reason to be excited year round, and you cannot ask for much more.

8:55 AM

crisp - welcome to the insanity.

JJ certainly has had his detractors here in the early days but it's tough to say that his hires aren't on the right track. Barbee is yet to prove anything but he seems to be off to a good start.

8:56 AM

I have always liked JJ, but a little over a year ago, I thought he was in over his head. What a difference a year makes! I'm with Eddie, it may be too early to judge his hires, but the enthusiasm is over the top.

Eddie & Norm - you make me feel like I'm caught in a SFC vortex.

Speaking of Auburn, did anyone else see where the almost abandoned Big12-2 schools (K,KS,MO,IS,Baylor) agreed to forfeit their portions of the $20million that Colorado and Nebraska (collectively) will pay as exit fee? Holy cow. How much more can they humiliate themselves? Does all that $20million goes to OU, OSU, TAMU, TX, and TT? The article didn't elaborate.

9:11 AM  
Blogger Norm said...

THT - please refrain from referencing me and SFC in the same post. While you're at it, please also don't reference me with Jet. You know my disdain for him and my plot for his ultimate downfall.

9:13 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

THT- Makes sense. It helped keep them in a viable conference instead of treading water in conference USA or some such. The fact is that the Big 12-2 is a weak ass conference that can be bullied by one team. Give it time, it will collapse at some point. Also, Texas will regret the day that it can no longer bully others into doing what they want. The fact that OU went along with it is shoking. They pretty much decided to bend over.

i was also a huge skeptic of JJ's capacity to be a successful AD, especially after hiring chizik!! but i guess that's why i'm not making hiring and firing decisions at a major athletic dept. - there are people like Jacobs that are far better at it than i am! i got to personally thank him for a job well done (so far) at the second to last game of the AU regional. what a game.

I've always liked JJ. I was disappointed when he didn't hire Gill, but I knew he had much greater qualifications than I did to make that decision. Will he make the right decisions every time. Not as long as he remains human.

btw, where is DL? I wonder if he's aiming a few missiles at Sao Paulo this morning. If so, I sure hope he'll avoid collateral damage to my favorite Brazilian city, Americana.

Congrats Cincy!! February 19th would be a good day for you to become a grandmother.

JJ is a very underrated AD. He is still learning but he has Auburn going in the right direction. We have 3 coaches that have shown they are ready to take AU to the next level. We have a brand new BB facility that rivals any in the country and there is major talk of a 100yd indoor practice facility for football. That's on top of improvements that have already been made. He has shown and ability to get the fan base fired up and put Auburn right there with the big boys in facilities. It's Great To Be An Auburn Tiger.

I will say that JJ has started to change my mind. His hires, for this year at least, have saved him. If Chizik had not won many games and Pawloski's team had not gotten to the SEC tourney, some of us would be questioning his decisions. I like the direction, but I still need to see more.
I would like to see a revamping of the football schedule so AU plays big name opponents.

WTC, I agree and disagree. When you play in the SEC your schedule is tough enough. The past few years we have had 1 good opponent per year outside the SEC. I don't like playing D2 schools but I don't think we need 4 big time games. I like 1 a year with 3 ok teams after that.

2011 nonconf = Clempson, FAU, Samford, Utah State, not in that order

10:24 AM  
Blogger wtc said...

We do not have to play 4 tough non conference games each year. And I am OK with playing Arky State for homecoming. But I am not for playing Samford, The Citadel, Furman and their like all in the same year.
I do not want to play OK, Texas and USC in the same year. BUt AU just needs to get a better reputation (IMO) outside of the conference. We already looked at our record away from home (non bowl games) with BCS schools. It is horrible. 1 win since about 1990. AU doesn't have to do it all in one year, but besides winning, you have to market yourself and I think you need to get outside your comfort zone to do that. Play neutral site games. Do something outside the box.

10:26 AM  
Blogger CH=B said...

Apparently Chris Low wrote and article that said the SEC is now UF/UA and then everyone else. P. Marshall wrote a good rebuttal today. Yeah those two have played for back to back SEC championships but two years doesn't mean domination. The SEC is however dominated by 6 schools and it runs in cycles.

10:29 AM  
Blogger wtc said...

Just curious how many schools have, or whoever does the contacting, have contacted AU to play in a neutral site game since we did not tak the UCLA game in ATL. Not saying AU should ahve taken it, but in marketing, perception is everything and if AU is perceived as not wanting to play in those games, it may be a while before they get called again. For me, it was great opporntunity to show off AU, but I do nto want to cover old territory here by arguing that point. I am right and that is all that matters to me.

10:30 AM

I am out for a wile. I will check in later.

10:30 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

a big problem is that AU appears to be determined to have 8 home games, if not every year, at least every year Iron Bowl is in T'town.

That does not lend itself to more than one "home and home" opponent/yr, and it's virtually impossible to get anything but the Samford's of the world to come to AU without AU promising to go "there."

10:35 AM  
Blogger CH=B said...

Maybe I am mistaken but I think when someone says home/home that means you play one at home and then the other team gets a home game the next year or future years. We just recently played a home/home with WVU and Clempson is a home/home.

10:39 AM  
Blogger George W. Jet said...

Going forward, I concur that we are ready for such neutral site games and suspect we'll take one in 2012, if we can.

Obviously, it can't be in a year where we already have a road non-conference game, such as 2011 because that would reduce us to 6 home games, which is not tenable.

if we went to 7 home games EVERY year, and not just the home Iron Bowl years, we could have 2 legit non-conf. opponents each year, one at home, one on the road. Unless we relinquish the "must have 8 home games in non-bama years" mentality, we will always have 3 cream puffs on the schedule.

How many millions does AU make on that 8th home game against a cream puff? It's hard to argue against it froma financial standpoint.

Soccer would be the most awesome sport in the world if you could use you hands and tackle. The kicking is cool and trying to get the ball in the goal (past a goalie) is also cool.

maybe what i read Eddie was that he was finally sentenced. i don't remember. yeah, i wasn't surprised at all. what a shame. speaking of the late 90's, any clue what Charles Dorsey (Oooh-La) is up to now?

CH=B- Time to expand your horizons then. The sport rocks, but you have to be open to liking it to begin with instead of carrying in the american preconceived notions that most do.

Scottie- Probably eating competitions. I actually have no idea, but i'm going to go out on a limb and say the guy weights at least 380. Oh La loves to eat. Good guy, even if he single handily cost us the 96 UGA game.

96 GEORGIA....you made my stomach hurt. i guess it's my own fault, though. ick.

Scottie B - you need to pay attention. Some truly outstanding Hottie ;-) mentioned here it last week.

11:55 AM  
Blogger scottie b Raylan Givens said...

if only i knew who that was THT. then i could shower him in praise. oh, well. i guess it'll remain a mystery.

11:59 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

well..thanks, Eddie. MrsTHT packed me a HUGE lunch and I was only able to eat half. Thanks to you bringing up '96 UGa, something else was brought up and I can now eat the other half of my lunch.

12:01 PM

just remember 2005 in Athens. that should help.

12:03 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

THT- I'm just looking out for your health.

BTW- Better WR this season...

Kodi Burns or LSU's Russell Shepard?

12:03 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

But don't remember any other UGA games after 2005...that won't help one bit.

12:04 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

well, Scottie, the Hottie wasn't that outstanding. He or she only mentioned it via an obtuse link. He or she was too embarrassed for Auburn to spell it out on HABOTN.

12:05 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

Eddie, I like the think that I am pretty opened minded. I mean I will eat green stuff now and I wouldn't have in years past. Seriously though, I have tried to watch it and It just doesn't appeal to me. It probably has something to do with growing up in south Alabama. I didn't know what soccer was when I was younger. Also I don't find anything wrong with America's notions. What are you Russian?

I remember discussing '96 AU v UGA last week but I'm far from outstanding so I can't remember who else was discussing it. Other than the abysmal way the game turned out, I seem to recall that it was the first OT game played after the rule was enacted. Am I right in that recollection?

12:08 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I eat green stuff, too. But that doesn't mean I have to like it.

12:10 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Norm- You are. Of course, the game should have never gone to OT.

12:11 PM  
Blogger scottie b Raylan Givens said...

i want to apologize to #80 Rod Smith. i almost forgot it is his day too.

i know his house burnt down. is all well with him & his family now? it has been a year or so since that happened.

12:11 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

not sure, Norm. It was certainly AU's first OT game. As late in the season as it was, I'd be quite surprised if it was the first OT game.

12:11 PM  
Blogger scottie b Raylan Givens said...

'96 AU-UGA was the 1st OT game in SEC history if i recall.

12:12 PM

Sorry...first OT game for sure, I was part of it. Made history in a bad way...yuck.

We didn't play UGA in 1996, so I don't know what y'all are talking about.

Now the 1997 and 1999 affairs were pretty swell, those were the first 2 times I had been to Sanford.

I am a former soccer hater turned admirer. Of course, it took ElTurbo to play on the school team for five years for it to sink in.

I can't say I follow the English Premier League or anything like that, but I'll watch a random MLS match, and will watch as much of the Cup as my schedule allows.

It took me two seasons to appreciate the movement, the angles, the rules, and the ability it takes to play the sport.

Often times, people bemoan the lack of scoring in the game and they say there's a lot of standing around. That could apply to baseball. Or even my favorite sport of football, in which I love a well-played low-scoring game, such as our 7-3 win over LSU in 2006.

I must be getting soft as I exit middle age. I'm starting to like NASCAR. Maybe it's that I'd rather watch sports on TV than have to talk to my family.

12:30 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

I'm fairly certain that it was the first OT in all D-1. I'm so certain that I'm willing to wager your $ on it.

'96 sucked mightily since Beta-Wife told me over the phone while I was working out of town that when I returned home there'd be a lot less stuff in my house.
'96 sucked mightily also due to the just mentioned AU/UGA game.
'96 sucking was improved by the eventual meeting of she who would become Hot Wife.

'96 was my first year on the Plains.

i'll never forget Dennis Riddle running right at me in endzone with seconds to go. if i ever see him in person i'm punching him in the face.

Thank you for your donation, Norm.

Toledo played in 2 OT games before AU & GA.

1995 Las Vegas Bowl (OT rule went into effect after '95 regular season, before bowls) was their first. They also had OT game in October of 1996.

Norm- I agree that it wasn't the first OT game of college football, just saying it was for Auburn and the SEC.

Eddie - I guess I was confused, it happens to me daily. First OT in the SEC, got it.

THT - the very next time I see you, I'll buy you an ice cream.

Scottie - no can do. Though I am sending one of my peeps to the area again tomorrow to do some work at E. Alabama Med. Center. I couldn't make the previous trip there since I had to be in Pennsylvania at the time. Dangit.

No such thing as too much Wasabi. However, two glasses of ice water and some spare napkins strongly recommended.

The Hibachis was the name of our intramural basketball team at AU. It had nothing to do with Japanese grill. It came from one of our teammates greeting to anyone. For example,

Boof: Hibachi THT?
THT: I'm great, Boof. Hibachu?

"Boof" is another story.
