Indeed, O-A News noted Malzhan was still collecting and reviewing the facts re: Bessent’s case. The initial charges were dropped but he’s still listed as a co-defendant in the remaining case. From the legal angle he’s almost certainly going to be either completely in the clear or at worse would be able to plead down to a charge so trivial that they give him some type of pre-trial divergence where it wouldn’t stay on his record. But that does not limit Auburn’s response either way – AU could drop him, redshirt him, gray shirt him, suspend him or play him.
We have developed a tool which plays all the sounds of the appliance so that the marketing folks can come up with what they want for future products. Of course, the guy who developed this is a UT grad and is hell bent on playing Rocky Top every now and then.
Can anyone help me find out each note (in frequency and duration) for the Auburn Fight song at least for the first 10-15 seconds if not the whole song?
For eg -> The following are the first few notes of the star wars theme (in Hz and milliseconds)
I was in AU today, chaperoning students for EDay. While I understand nothing of the engineering world, it was great to walk across campus, buy some goods at the Bookstore and then finish it with a trip to Niffers. Good times. Good times.
Also the NCAA revised the targeting rule. If the ejection is overturned this year, then so is the penalty. That was the worst rule I had seen. It cost UGA the Vandy game and cost Ole Miss the aTm game.
While I don’t agree with the ten second rule, had they waited until next year there could have been a good debate of the effect of HUNH on college football and what type of balance is best for the game. By trying to push it through on unsubstantiated player safety grounds, the whole topic is now tainted. I’m sure the defensive minded/Godzilla sized line coaches will bring it back up but I doubt it will get traction.
Reddit!?!? Wow. I wish Spencer would have allowed someone in the commentariat to do it instead of turning it over to someone like that. I didn’t go to the link because I refuse to go to reddit for any reason. I guess I won’t be following the Fulmer Cup anymore.
Congrats to Cliff Ellis who earlier this week became just the 10th coach in college history to take 4 different teams to the NCAA’s (South AL, Clemson, AU and now Coastal Carolina). He had some truly kick @ss teams at AU……which seems like 1,000 years ago, but it wasn’t.
MCT, I would love to get Bruce Pearle but I don’t see him taking the job (Pearle is under contract with Nike and AU is of course an UnderArmor school). One of my best friends – and LONG time AU hoops fan – knew him from when they were both in Knoxville and he speaks very highly of him. His record speaks for itself.
Alas, we’re more apt to pick up someone like the guy @ Southern Miss (Donnie Tyndall). A good coach and much smaller price tag but not the homerun hire Pearle would be. Even if Peale came there’s no guarantee of immediate success. Even under ideal circumstances it could take 2 or 3 years but he COULD put AU back in the NCAA’s (maybe even on an intermittent basis) despite the paltry quality of the SEC which murders a prospective school’s “strength of schedule.”
I predict we’ll know who our next guy is fairly soon b/c I suspect Jay Jacobs called Bruce Pearle’s agent about 5 seconds after he let Barbee go and got a “man, Jay I am really flattered but my client LOVES his TV gig and the money is great too…thanks, but just can’t do it.” So the interview process might only be 3 guys. Jeff Capel – the former Duke star and coach @ Oklahoma and VCU would be similar to Barbee in that he’s a young up and comer BUT different in that he’s a Coach K protégé while Barbee was a pupil under the significantly smarmy John Caliperi. One plus for Capel is he is experienced in coaching hoops at a “football” school. My money is on one of these 2 getting the nod.
Pearl has a show cause for recruiting, but could still take it. Heard Capel is unlikely, as is the VCU coach. No idea who we will get, personally. Hopefully it’s someone who can put some excitement in the program like the other hires have. If Auburn baseball can ever stop stranding runners on base, the pitching seems to be awesome, so far. Particularly the freshman Keegan Thompson (or Thomas, can’t remember off hand)). I know he’s pitching tomorrow at noon, but weather is looking bad.
Walt I heard the same thing re: Capel the last time around. The prickly thing about hiring Pearle is that Jacobs has always preached the importance of hiring coaches that “do the right thing” and set a positive example for our student athletes. This was at least a major part of Bobby Petrino’s baggage that made him a non-option. Not to compare Pearle with Petrino but that does complicate matters.
All the foregoing points to Tyndall…or perhaps someone who’s not on the radar. One interesting long shot is Ben Howland. He’s still unemployed despite going to three Final Fours in a row @ UCLA. He had a great run @ Pitt before that. He would be a homerun but his personality is pretty closely akin to Barbee AND he has no ties to the South that I know of…which I don’t care a lick about but then again, no one is asking me. :(
Clint Meyers is a legend for a reason…..I mean no disrespect to the prior coach Tina Deese (who I’ve known since her days at Huntingdon College in the late 80′s when I worked for her) but Meyers is taking this program to new highs for sure.
Spring Practice starts tomorrow! Gustav says he believes we can be faster next year (take that Saban and BERT). Also confirmed that Jonathon Ford has moved to Safety and Trovon Reed to CB. Hopefully those moves work out. Now back to my continuously checking Twitter to see if Auburn has managed to snag Bruce Pearl.
Keep me posted on the bball coach search. I’m probably the biggest AU hoops guy out here in the Auburner Family…if longevity and prior season ticket status means anything. :)
Plus I’m AU hoops geeky enough to be able to name guys from the 70′s that played there. Yeah, I’m sick like that. ;)
JCMac, sounds great…looking forward to it! Good luck everybody!
I’m actually excited about Auburn basketball. Amazing. Pearl won the press conference without a doubt. He’s got some serious excitement and looks like he’s injecting that enthusiasm into the program. Can’t wait to see what he does!
The truly amazing thing is that this hire and the press conference even over-shadowed the first day of spring practice for football!
