I'm finally back and posting again after a week hiatus. I went to Vegas for the week where "Seven" was the theme of the week. Sadly, I was stuck on the pass line.
Anyway, here's a short look at what has happened since I've been gone:
The good news:
More Auburn incoming freshmen are filing into the program. This week, it was QB Tyrik Rollison, LB Dee Ford and DT Jamar Travis.
The list of other freshmen already cleared: QB Clint Moseley, ATH Robert Cooper, RB Dontae Aycock, WRs Anthony Gulley, Emory Blake, DeAngelo Benton and Travante Stallworth, TE Philip Lutzenkirchen, OLs John Sullen and Andre Harris, DLs Nosa Eguae and Nick Fairley and LBs Harris Gaston and Jonathan Evans.
ESPN will televise Auburn's 2009 game with West Virginia. Game time is set for 6:45 p.m. and will be shown on either ESPN or ESPN2. That means at least 11 Tigers games will be televised this year.
The bad news:
Three players were kicked off the team last week. S Christian Thompson, LB Marcus Jemison and DE Jomarcus Savage were all kicked off for reasons yet unspecified by Auburn. Coach Gene Chizik has not been available for comment.
