A few tidbits for your reading pleasure:
- If I were UT’s Jonathan Crompton, I wouldn’t get too comfortable. It’s usually not a good sign for the QB when the coaches are raving about how well the secondary is playing. Or when the backups are putting up better numbers – and the freshman is being called the “most impressive”.
- If its spring game is any indication, Mississippi State’s offense doesn’t sound like it’s gotten any better: a 6-0 final score. In overtime. The leading rusher in the game had 15 yards.
- Urban Meyer talks about the “dope look”. After you read about it, admit it – it’s not what you thought, is it?
- Unlike the MSU game, there was plenty of offense at Auburn’s A-Day – 70+ passes and all of the offensive plays run (fired?) out of the shotgun. What may be lacking, though, is a bit of team chemistry. “3. Franklin was especially critical of the two quarterbacks’ sideline ‘leadership.’ Burns and Todd were apparently shirking their responsibility to signal in the formation when fourth-stringer DeRon Furr was in the game. Franklin was not pleased, and he volunteered his displeasure to reporters. ‘They weren’t being good team guys,’ he said.”
