Cotton not as tall in Mississippi

Hey everyone. So we now know that Raymond Cotton, the former Auburn commitment who instead signed with Ole Miss, has announced plans to leave Ole Miss.

To be fair, I'd be upset as well if the Rebels' No. 1 quarterback rolled on down to the Manning Love Fest Academy and I wasn't invited ... surgically repaired labrum or not.

This odd turn for Cotton adds intrigue for me. Everyone who knew about Cotton in 2008, when he was a high prospect, understood that his top priority was playing time. He walked away from a mid-level SEC program that needed a quality quarterback and landed at a mid-level SEC program that didn't need a quality quarterback as badly.

As decisions go, that won't be nominated for the Hall of Fame.

Either way, I'm hoping Cotton finds what he's seeking.

Also: Jeremiah Masoli?

Auburn in 2008 was not upper-level ... and if you think Auburn was upper-level then, you need to seek help at Bradford. Immediately.

On an unrelated note: The more I review Auburn's projected offense, it's getting obvious:

Gus and the boys are going to unleash some fury.

That's assuming Fannin doesn't get hurt or fumble a lot, Newton is at least as good as Chris Todd and Terrell Zachery (or someone of that ilk) becomes a 1A-type of receiver.

I feel bad for the kid.

That feeling has now passed. He was cocky through the process and when Auburn hit a bump in the road and bailed.

I wonder if Enrique Davis has regrets, and if he does, he and Patrick Trahan can both go take a long walk off a short pier.

Enrique Davis made a bad decision.

Them's the facts. He'd be the No. 1 tailback at Auburn right now had he honored his commitment. The last No. 1 is about to make a lot of money in the NFL.

I have to disagree with Davis being #1 if he were at Auburn. I'd take Fannin over the Ole Miss crew in front of him any day.

What was the deal with Trahan leaving? It was apparently pretty low on my radar at the time as I don't remember what it was about. I remember he was hurt, that's about it.

Love the title, Jay. Cotton would definitely been in the mix at QB last season. I understand the switch, but it turned out to be a very bad idea.

Trahan - got into a little academic situation and tried to lie his way out of it(per Walt McFadden).

Cotton - was committed to Tuberville, but not necessarily Auburn. If TT was still here, so would Cotton.

Keeping with the Ole Miss motif, maybe if our defense can make some noise and we can call the 2010 Auburn team "The Sound And The Fury".

That's exactly what Walt said and I have no reason to think he was wrong.

So is Fannin's shoulder 100%? The last I recall, he was running around on the field in the bowl game with one arm. I didn't hear any mention of it in the Spring, so I'm assuming he's fine to take a season of punishment on that shoulder o' his?

Just got back from a quasi-cool weekend in Highlands, NC. Note to self: next time pick a cooler weekend. It was in the mid 80's up there. I realize the rest of the east coast was wallowing in near 100 degree temps, but that's just too dang hot for up there.

Mid level? yup! To quote the Alabama trailer Dwellers favorite Midget: "It is was it is"

Masoli probably is a bullfrog, but he is also a dang good playmaking QB and OM needs something good to happen. If I was Nutt, I would gamble on him. BTW, I'm glad I'm not Nutt and don't have to make that choice.


How many days till practice starts?

Norm gets my vote for avatar of the week.

As for Cotton, he has a lot of potential. He looked a lot like Jason Campbell when I watched some high school clips. I think he just made some bad choices. If I remember correctly, his dad was a bit too involved too.

This does muddy the waters of if it were better to get Rollison or Cotton. Both look like busts at this point.

ESPN announced some changes in its broadcasting crews for SEC games this season. For the SEC Network's Game of the Week, Dave Neal will continue as play-by-play man with former Heisman winner Andre Ware as the analyst. For the weekly ESPNU game at noon, Rob Stone will do play-by-play and former Georgia All-America defensive end David Pollack will be the analyst. And for the Saturday night SEC game on ESPNU, Clay Matvick will be the play-by-play guy and former NFL coach Herm Edwards the analyst.

We've got to prove ourselves. We're a team that went 3-5 in the league last year and we've got a new quarterback and three safeties that were all seriously injured in the last year.

I'm optimistic, and think we can win 10, but there's a lot of question marks right now we've got to turn into exclamation points.

The bottom line is that the difference between a top 20 team in the country and the 40th best is not that far. It requires beating Kentucky at home, not getting abused by Arkansas, and finishing off either Georgia or Alabama.

9:22 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Thirty something seems fair enough at this point with so many unanswered questions.

Whether Fannin can be the primary ball carrier is a huge question. Dyer won't likely be able to do that. I am sure he could run, but blocking and receiving probably aren't there yet. Eric Smith might be the fall back. I can see FAH carrying the ball 20+ times a game.

QB is still a huge question mark. My guess is that naming Cam number 1 was because of concerns with his passing. If he isn't the guy, Caudle will be.

The defense must show significant improvement. I am very encouraged by comments about a lot of the new defensive players, but we need to make it through the MSU, Clempson, USCe stretch and get those guys some experience.

We showed positive signs last season, but there are just too many question marks to make this a top 20 team. It wouldn't surprise me to be in there are at the end of the season, but not now.

If you can't block, you don't play. Malzahn wants players that can do multiple things. Even the receivers must block, or they set the bench. One of the main criticism of FAH is his blocking, or lack there of.

Titans suing Kiffen? I love the continued Kiffen drama, but this lawsuit is a reach. Claiming that Kiffen "interfered" with the Titans coach's contract would require proving that the contract contained clauses requiring notice to the Titans that interviews were going to happen and proving that Kiffen had knowledge of those clauses.

Sports agents are totally aware of the amateur contracts requirements and should seemingly be liable for contract interference.

cadillac and kenny irons found out that "can't block don't play" crap. coaches found out a little later (after a few losses and 100+ games) that was not what they were there to do. newton should be able to alleviate some of that concern with his own escapability. i'm hoping we can get in some situations where dyer can see some good mop up action.

I like Jet's breakdown of why we might be ranked any particular way.

I also could care little about whether we are ranked 20th or 40th by any of the several hundred media outlets that issue rankings.

When was the last time the SEC media picked the eventual champion during the preseason? Probably around 1998? Don't get upset by the silly season.

It seems to me that there will be more parity in the top level of the SEC this season. UF and Bama each will have to reload and prove that it works. More teams seem to be improved than teams that are slipping. This could result in SEC teams bunched with 1-4 losses instead of the gaggle with 5 loses like last season.

10:11 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

If you are a gamebreaker, you'll get in the game even if you aren't the best blocker.

This isn't an era where we can start someone because we feel obligated then when someone outshines then we pull the "well they were struggling with their blocking" card.

If Dyer is a game changer, he'll play, even if he blocks like the RB equivalent of Chris Capps.

THT ... I missed that contract requirement, so suing the coach makes sense. Proving that Kiffen had knowledge of the clause would be tuff to do. Also SFC has a good point that Kiffen could get away with pleading general and unprovoked ignorance.

10:17 PM

Hoopie, my guess is the SEC championship game will probably be a battle of two 10-2 or 9-3 teams, ending the national title run for the conference.

USCw had one of their worst seasons in recent memory last year. I don't see Kiffikin getting more than 2 or 3 years if things don't improve. He won't have to win 10 games, but he better win at least 8 or 9 per season. Even then, after a couple of years like that, there will be grumbling. Have a losing season? Update your resume quick.

Is anyone really that impressed with the job Kiffikin did at UT? Yea, he gathered an all star staff, but he threw out a lot of bucks to do it. The full Monte was making around $1 Million. Position coaches were making as much as a lot of coordinators. Give me that kind of money to hand out and I could improve UT football.

Man it was HOT in AU today. Moved my daughter form her upstairs apartment out on Longleaf to one closer to campus. Got to AU at 9:00am and was done by 1:00pm with the moving part. Hanging pics, curtain rods, clocks, setting up TV's is so draining. I would have rather moved another student than that stuff. However, that sofa looks great in the new apartment. I reminded her that she will be taking that sofa with her after she graduates.

Look for a few commits in the coming 2 weeks. Several good ones coming on board very soon.

Morning, Hotties! Can't wait to hear the news wtc hinted of. It is really starting to feel like football!

It's a beautiful morning!

I'm getting less interested in next year's recruits and more interested in seeing how last year's recruits will do on the field. Practice is not far off!

Good morning all.

WTC, don't be ashamed to do a little name dropping from time to time. I think J. Rose and the DB from Fl whose name I can't remember are a couple of the guys ready to make the commitment.

Had dreams of Newton running wild and for long touchdowns. Very odd, but very enjoyable.

I think Kiffin had UT a much better team at the end of the year than they were at the beginning. He helped mold Crompton into a decent QB.

I did 90 REAL pushups today! It was 3 sets of 30, but that is 90 more than I could do when I started boot camp!

HAPPY KURT CRAIN #39 DAY HOTTIES!

best wishes to our friends at the BuyMore today.

wow Cincy, that's great! i got a little workout in already today too. not 90 push-ups, but something. remind me not to ever make you mad, ok? :)

Under Armour Sideline Gear is apparently out...2010 Auburn Sideline Gear.

I kinda like it, but the prices are just getting ridiculous. $40 for a T-shirt. We must no longer be in a recession.

8:13 AM  
Blogger scottie burns said...

yup, stuff looks good but very pricey. the future bro-in-law said they got in 50 boxes of Under Armour hoodies at the new AU Team Shop yesterday. he said it wasn't fun. i don't believe him.

8:19 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

A hoodie right now would be swell.

Blogger scottie burns said...

as of right now a car load of AU lovin', Bama haters will be going to the Braves game (7pm ET) on saturday nite, August 14th. then headed to AU for Fan Day on the 15th. if anyone else is interested in meeting up, holla.

8:25 AM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

scottie,
That sounds like so much fun! We will be moving our daughter and son-in-law to Montgomery that weekend. I really would like to get over to ATL for a game before Bobby retires.

Oh, and I wouldn't worry about making me mad. I was so dead after doing those 90 pushups, I couldn't have squashed a bug!

wtc's mom sent me an email saying Auburn would get a commitment from some guy named Rose this weekend.

Blogger FSJ said...

Go Braves, and take the Falcons with you....

8:33 AM  
Blogger FSJ said...

I just read that UA expects to break the 30,000 enrollment mark this year. Time certainly marches on. My freshman year there were a little less than 18,000 and tuition was around $900 a semester.

8:35 AM  
Blogger scottie burns said...

FSJ is no longer invited to attend the Braves game. :P

Good morning, FSJ et al.

wtc's mom sending highly classified crootin tidbits to FSJ?!

30K not surprising when the admission standards are so lax.



j/k, FSJ. I have no idea what the standards are there, or if they even have any.

8:39 AM  
Blogger FSJ said...

THT, I was quite proud of this scoop. Of course any bammer could have called this one since I believe the elder Mr. Rose played for Pat Dye.... :-)

8:40 AM  
Blogger FSJ said...

THT,

Standards? Who needs standards?

This is about playing some smash mouth football dadgummit. We need playyyyyyerrs...

Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

as long as the news remains good for the majority of Hotties, keep on scoopin', FSJ!

8:42 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I was looking at the recruit rankings and was highly disappointed at the number of "top 100/150" who have committed to ua-t and/or are likely to commit there.

I want to thank whoever posted the TMZ story on Jay Barker, Sara Evans, and her ex on here the other day... (I think it was here). I have laughed for days at Jay's text messages.

I could tell you some interesting nuggets about him. I lived in the same apartment complex as his ex in college. I also had an accounting class with him. He showed up on four days as I recall....test days.

Blogger michael said...

Man, well, it happens.

10:44 AM  
Blogger michael said...

You know what else happens? Wild violent ostriches across Eurasia.

10:54 AM  
Blogger michael said...

I bought the ostriches because they had a deal running where if you bought 10,000 ostriches, you got a free autographed Yanni CD. Yanni is notorious for not signing stuff, so I would do it again in a heartbeat.

11:12 AM  
Blogger michael said...

So there I am with 9,998 ostriches (I was a little hungry), not knowing what to do with them. I thought, well, this isn't exactly their natural habitat, I will just release them and let them roam until they die. So that is what I did.

11:35 AM  
Blogger michael said...

The first ostrich attack video made me laugh. But then more and more reports started piling in. Some deaths occurred. All of that also made me laugh.

11:35 AM  
Blogger michael said...

But then it happened. An ostrich breached my palace's perimeter. It took a dump on my tomato plant. All those good tomatoes, gone in an instant. That is when I knew the ostrich problem had to be eradicated.

11:37 AM  
Blogger michael said...

Of course, the first thing I wanted to do was return the ostriches to the company that gave them to me with the Yanni CD. They demanded that if I was going to return the ostriches, I had to also return the Yanni CD, also.

11:39 AM  
Blogger michael said...

So of course, I forged a Yanni signature on another album and sent it back to them. Passed with flyng colors. After I saw how good I was at Yanni signatures, I started signing a bunch of random stuff and selling it on ebay. Made a killing.

11:40 AM  
Blogger michael said...

So then the company says to me, "OK, send back the ostriches now." I was all like, "Huh? I released them out into the wild. You just accepted ownership of them. Now get your stinking ostriches out of my country or face annihilation at the hands of Eurasia."
