- Mobile Press-Register ace, Evan Woodbery, had a very strong story on Chaz Ramsey, chronicling his last year, his injuries and his rehab attempts.
- Auburn is apparently discussing its offensive line coach opening with Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College head coach Steve Campbell. Auburn coach Gene Chizik reportedly spoke with Campbell for the job on Monday.
- Birmingham News intern Enea Zhonga had an interesting story Tuesday. Emmit Randle, father of Rivals.com's No. 1 receiver Rueben Randle, told Zhonga that Rueben Randle never scheduled a trip to Auburn and does "not really" have any interest in the school.
- The other big story comes from men's basketball, where Johnnie Lett is now academically eligible again. Credit Opelika-Auburn News ace Andrew Gribble with the story.
In regard to Ramsey: One thing that isn't addressed in the story is Ramsey's possibly non-existent relationship with teammates. One fellow offensive lineman during the season said "I haven't talked to Chaz in a long time." While Ramsey could get a new start with the new coaching staff, he might have major repairwork to do with teammates.
Campbell has previous served as Mississippi State's offensive line coach and has also worked as Middle Tennessee's offensive coordinator. He's a former Troy player and has won national championships at the Division II level and the junior college level. Campbell won his JUCO title in 2007 with MGCCC and won his Division II title with Delta State in 2000.
The news on Randle is not pleasant for Auburn. The reports that the Tigers had landed a visit were a major coup. Even if Randle never stepped foot on campus, it still would have been a victory that Randle considered a trip. The quote from Randle's father is bad news for Auburn because it now seems the Tigers were never in the running for the top Rivals.com prospect. I guess there was a reason Emmit Randle couldn't "get off work."
