  1. Auburn WR Ryan Davis: ‘there’s a place for me in the NFL’ Updated Dec 15, 2:11 PM; Posted Dec 15, 2:09 PM Auburn wide receiver Ryan Davis runs after making a reception during an SEC game against Mississippi State on Oct. 6, 2018, at Davis Wade Stadium in Starkville, Miss. (Jonathan Bachman) 24 shares By Sam Blum | SBlum@al.com SBlum@al.com Ryan Davis might have been the heart of Auburn’s offense — breaking the program record for number of receptions. But he’s far from this team’s top NFL prospect. The senior is just 5-foot-9 and 185 pounds. He didn’t touch the end zone this season and many of his catches were on shorter routes. He won’t be playing in the Senior Bowl, instead accepting an invite to the East-West Shrine Game in St. Petersburg, Florida — his hometown. The game is on Jan. 19. Davis, who also served as Auburn’s punt returner, said on Friday night that he’s determined to showing his capabilities and earning a spot at the next level. “I just want to show that I’m an all-around receiver,” Davis said. “I know a lot of people get the misconception that I’m a short-yardage guy or someone who can’t really run routes. Not big enough. But I definitely feel like there’s a place for me in the NFL — whether it’s on special teams, punt return, or just in the slot, doing different things.” Davis had 64 catches for 523 yards and zero touchdowns this season, after having five TDs last season. He returned 21 punts with a long of 48 yards in the Sept. 22 game against Arkansas. Davis also threw for two touchdowns on trick plays. Davis had 173 receptions in his Auburn career, with one game left to play, against Purdue in the Music City Bowl on Dec. 28. As a whole, his stats were down significantly this season. He averaged just 8.2 yards per catch, compared to 9.7 last season. He’s had 20 fewer receptions and 292 fewer yards, in two fewer games. Still, there are important games left for him to show an NFL team should give him his chance. “I know people probably haven’t seen a lot of stuff deep down the field, but I want to show I’m an all-around receiver who can play any position, whether it’s inside or outside,” Davis said. “You can line me in the backfield. I feel like I’m a versatile guy, and I just want to show how versatile I am. I feel like I can do everything.”

    QB Justin Fields to transfer

    Freshman QB Justin Fields to transfer from Georgia, report says Updated Dec 17, 7:12 PM; Posted Dec 17, 7:11 PM Georgia quarterback Justin Fields (1) tries to escape from Georgia Tech linebacker Victor Alexander (9) in the second half of an NCAA college football game Saturday, Nov. 24, 2018, in Athens, Ga. Georgia won 45-21. (AP Photo/John Bazemore) (John Bazemore) 0 shares By Creg Stephenson | cstephenson@al.com cstephenson@al.com Highly touted freshman quarterback Justin Fields will transfer away from Georgia, according to a report Monday by USA Today’s Dan Wolken. Fields, rated the No. 2 overall prospect in the 2018 class, played in 12 games this season as the primary backup to Jake Fromm. The Kennesaw, Ga., native completed 27 of 39 passes for 328 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions and also rushed for 266 yards and four scores. The 6-foot-3, 225-pound Fields was the second-rated quarterback in the country but also in Georgia last season, behind Cartersville product and Clemson phenom Trevor Lawrence. While Lawrence eventually beat out junior Kelly Bryant (who later transferred) for the starting job with the Tigers, the Bulldogs stuck with Fromm (who was a 4-star recruit in the 2017 class). Under NCAA transfer rules, Fields would sit out the 2019 season and have three years of eligibility beginning in 2020. However, according to the report, Fields is expected to appeal to the NCAA for immediate eligibility. Georgia has signed a highly-touted quarterback recruit in three straight classes: Fields in 2018, Fromm in 2017 and 5-star prospect Jacob Eason in 2016. Eason later transferred to Washington, where he is projected to be the starter next season. The Bulldogs have one quarterback committed for their 2019 class: 4-star recruit John Rhys Plumlee of Oak Grove, Mississippi.

    thanx man.....i really appreciate what you do for the board. i think your work and insights are outstanding! i seldom post in recruiting but i do visit very often.

    Derrick Brown returning!

    it is my understanding from another board that mr brown's draft stock would take a big hit because he cannot perform like he is capable of and his draft placement would take a hit possibly costing him some serious money? anyone else heard this? and i am certainly no throwing shade on mr brown as he is one of my favorite players. i sure am looking forward to another year of watching mr brown. i love the way he hits backfields like a wrecking ball and is always grinning after the play is over.
  8. yahoo.com Yahoo Ryan Herrington, 6-7 minutes As Jan. 1 approaches, it’s time to consider what New Year’s resolutions you’ll be making to help your golf game in 2019. For those who haven’t come up with any, here’s a suggestion: Learn the Rules of Golf. (No, really learn them this time.) Perhaps you’ve tried, only to find that by February, the copy of the rules book you picked up is covered with as much dust as that Peloton you bought to get into shape. Yet here’s the thing: There’s no better time than now to give it another shot because a new, modernized version of the rules goes into effect on New Year’s Day. In the most sweeping revision in more than 60 years, officials from the USGA and R&A, golf’s governing bodies, have reorganized the rules to make them easier to understand and apply. The number has been cut to 24 from 34, and the language simplified to make it more practical. Roughly 2 million copies of the Player’s Edition of the Rules of Golf were published and circulated this fall. If you haven’t gotten one, you can find it online at usgapublications.com, as well as with explanatory videos at usga.org/rules. The free USGA Rules of Golf app has been updated, too. To help you keep this resolution, here are nine changes to the new rules you should know. I. Accidents happen The controversy over Dustin Johnson’s ball moving on the green during the final round of the 2016 U.S. Open exposed the old rules for being too harsh when it came to what many considered tickytack infractions. New language, first adopted through Local Rules since 2017, states there is no penalty if you accidentally move your ball (or ball marker) on the green. Put the ball back, and you’re good to go. The same applies if you’re searching for a lost ball and mistakenly move it. II. The fix is in Golfers often complained about the silliness of letting players fix a ball mark on the green, but not a spike mark. What’s the difference? With no good answer, officials now will let you fix everything without a penalty. You can also touch the line of your putt with your hand or club so long as you’re not improving it. RELATED: A comprehensive guide to the new Rules of Golf III. A lost cause To improve pace of play, golfers now have just three minutes to search for a missing ball rather than five. Admit it, if you hadn’t found it in three minutes, you weren’t finding it anyway. IV. Knee is the new shoulder The process for dropping a ball back in play is revamped in the new rules. Instead of letting go from shoulder height, players will drop from around their knee. This is a compromise from an original proposal that would have let golfers drop from just inches above the ground. To preserve some randomness with the drop, officials went with knee height instead. Why change at all? Primarily to speed up play by increasing the chances your ball stays within the two-club-length drop area on the first try. V. No longer at touchy subject Hitting a ball into a water hazard (now defined as “penalty area”) should come with consequences. But golfers don’t have to be nervous about incurring an additional penalty for a minor rules breach while playing their next shot. You’re free to touch/move loose impediments and ground your club, eliminating any unnecessary worry. The only caveat: You still can’t put your club down and use it to improve the conditions for the stroke. You can remove loose impediments in bunkers, too, although touching the sand in a bunker in front of or behind the ball is still prohibited. Rob Carr/Getty Images VI. Damaged goods We all get mad on the course, and sometimes that anger is taken out on an unsuspecting driver or putter. Previously, the rules were confusing on when or if you could play a club you damaged during a round, and it led to instances where some players were disqualified for playing clubs with a shaft slightly bent or some other damage they didn’t realize the club had. Now you can play a club that has become damaged in any fashion. If you caused the damage, however, you can’t replace the club with a new one. RELATED: The downside of modernizing the Rules of Golf VII. Twice is … OK A double hit is almost always accidental, and the outcome so random as to hardly be beneficial. So golfers are now spared the ignominy of adding a penalty for hitting a ball twice with one swing. It counts as only one stroke. Somewhere T.C. Chen is smiling. VIII. The end of flagstick folly Another nod to common sense eliminates a penalty for hitting a flagstick left in the hole while putting on a green. Taking out and then placing back in flagsticks can often cause undo delay in the round, and the flagstick is as likely to keep your ball out of the cup as it would help it fall in. IX. O.B. option Courses may implement a Local Rule (not for competition) that offers an alternative to the stroke-and-distance penalty for lost balls or shots hit out-of-bounds. A player may drop a ball anywhere between where the original ball was believed to come to rest (or went out-of-bounds) and just into the edge of the fairway, but no nearer the hole. The golfer takes a two-stroke penalty and plays on instead of returning to the tee. This way, the Local Rule mimics your score if you had played a decent provisional ball.

    Which Players are Leaving?

    are you sure? i read a ton of articles on the fbi being at auburn but i will admit most of it was al.com.

    Which Players are Leaving?

    i believe they even claimed cecil wanted money for his church which was having some kind of problems as well. i think the laptop cam bought is what convinced many cam was lying about money from auburn. but the fbi and ncaa spent a year more or less searching every nook ans cranny and auburn came away clean. i hate cam was smeared. there is hardly a week goes by cam is not feeding the homeless or feeding needy folks at thanksgiving as well as providing hundreds of families with christmas. i love him and hope one day he gets a great team behind him and wins a superbowl.

    article: noah cain on tigerland

    i have none towards you as well realist. i did not go to bed last night hoping you kicked or anything.we want the same things just by different means. my love auburn goes way deeper than i can explain other than my dad playing on the frosh team in the early fifties. i am sure we might spar more down the road but i wish you the absolute best for the new year.
  13. it will not let me copy and paste but he basically said with all the mess at auburn with gus made him change his school from auburn to penn state. this really hacks my lily as our antics allowed a top rb to change his mind and sign with penn st. and he was all set to play at auburn. his words not mine. this is why i get upset when we go overboard with the negative stuff. i have no problem with people being upset. i was as well but i tempered my remarks. and i think the negativity of the fans played into his changing his mind as well.

    article: noah cain on tigerland

    to be honest i am an old geezer that had no clue about al.com until i got in this group. i also never knew the mobile press was owned until pointed out yesterday/ eugene i have absolutely no ill will towards you. i think sometimes we are like brothers fighting like crazy but at the end of the day it is not personal and we all want the same thing ultimately. well ok sometimes it might get personal for a few minutes. but other than a dust up here and there i wish no one any ill will at all. have a great day brother.............
  15. i thought some of you might want to watch our bowl win again without all the commercials.................

    article: noah cain on tigerland

    the sad fact is al.com post more auburn stuff than anyone else. yes i have seen attack pieces and i have seen good articles. and for the record i believe was originally posted by Mobile Press-Register and i assume al.com just picked it up. my point is if we refused to post any news by different news outlets auburn fans did not like or approve of very very little would get published on this site. also when i post articles i try to post what i think most fans would want to read. al.com can be a nightmare with all their adds so i finally got ad blocker and now they pop up things telling me to turn my ad blocker off.............lol. as someone who refuses to pay for tidbits of news concerning auburn i just get the news where i can.

    article: noah cain on tigerland

    i love the way you throw insults in your replies. i gave you a pass once and threw some humor in which was way over your head. i stand by what i believe as well as a lot of other people on this board. fact. you downers got so bad al.com made a special article about some of y'all. and you think a rival coach is not using fan negativity as well as all the mess over gus etc i do not know what to tell you. i can say some of you got neg types got so bad other board raided aufam and copied many of the negative responses to post on their board to make fun of many of you. that is fact. i read many of them. if you denie what i am saying i will give you the board name and you can go look for yourself. i am not babbling nonsense you just will never admit i am right. maybe ellitor can shed some light on it. anyway you are not listening you are arguing so i will leave you with the last word.

    article: noah cain on tigerland

    i did not lay all the blame on fans. it was all the click bait rumors about gus that were not true and some of you piled on with glee. be honest with me and admit that it is a very real possibility the fans did help cloud some recruits minds. others on this board have no problem admitting it. as for your boohoo remark are you going to tell me now you never once amde derogatory remarks about sunshine pumpers and how we love mediocrity etc? about how we really do not love auburn or we would have demanded gus gone. sunshine pumpers was one of the words used all year long. and yes i am pretty sure you did plenty of bashing as well. so it is ok to bash the team but it is not ok when someone that believes different from you is not allowed? as for the ice cream thing maybe someone will explain it to you.

    Penn State running back signee Noah Cain seriously considered Auburn for his college football destination. But when questions arose regarding Auburn coach Gus Malzahn’s job security after the Iron Bowl loss, followed by offensive coordinator Chip Lindsey’s departure to Kansas and rumors about possible changes to Malzahn’s contract, it prompted Cain to essentially eliminate Auburn. "I saw that and I just said, 'I can't roll with this,'" Cain said at today's Under Armour All-American Game check-in in Orlando, Florida. "I didn't know what was going on." here is what he said. and also are some of you serious that the crap that happened did not make recruits waiver or rethink their commitments? i am pretty sure someone posted an article where gus had to do a lot of talking as well as other coaches to keep most of the class intact? it seems like some of you are more interested in trying to make me out a liar than admitting many of those we were recruiting had serious thoughts about going elsewhere. my basic point of recruits being concerned is true. it DID send the wrong message to our recruits.

    Stidham injured all season?

    i thought stid was hurt as well. people called him a coward but if you are the best qb available i would bet the coaches told him not to take many hits as they could make his injury worse and maybe give us a less chance of winning. if his shoulder was trashed i can understand it messing his mechanics up and overthrowing those long balls several times. regardless i wish stid the absolute best going forward towards a pro career.
  25. Auburn coaches taking new approach in bowl preparation Updated 6:36 PM; Posted 6:36 PM Auburn coach Gus Malzahn gives directions during practice Friday. Auburn bowl practice 2 on Friday, Dec. 14, 2018 in Auburn, Ala. Todd Van Emst/AU Athletics (Todd Van Emst/AU Athletics) 0 shares By Sam Blum | SBlum@al.com SBlum@al.com Auburn started off its bowl practices on Dec. 13 with head coach Gus Malzahn showing tape of the team’s 34-27 loss to UCF in the Peach Bowl to end last season. The Tigers (5-7) have ended each of the last two seasons with losses in bowl games, and so they’re making sure not to take the Music City Bowl for granted. “It’s like someone sticking a fork right inside of you,” senior HB Chandler Cox said on Monday. “... We kind of used that as motivation this week to push us through these practices. It’s been tough, it’s been hard practicing. But it’s exactly what we need. Anytime you’re pushed, you’re gonna be successful.” Auburn and Purdue (6-6) will play in the less-than-stellar bowl game in Nashville on Dec. 28 at 12:30 p.m. CST. Auburn has, by every measure, had a very disappointing season. Still, there’s a chance to salvage something in this game, and to use the extra practices to build on the future. But by all accounts, this week of practice has been about more than just the future. There’s an apparent concerted effort to take this game seriously. The Tigers took a rare step in having Friday’s practice out in the pouring rain. “You could tell they want to win,” said senior linebacker Darrell Williams. "You could tell Coach Malzahn’s doing a good job of emphasizing how we need to stay locked in and focused, and everybody’s carrying that on from top to bottom.” Cox said the specific focus has been on improving the preparation from last year. Malzahn spoke about the importance of the game as a springboard for the future, so it makes sense that there’s more of a drive to win a game that, on the outside, looks like an unspectacular ending to a season that started with expectations of playing a far more important postseason game. And Cox would have some idea, as someone that’s been there for four years. This is type of practice more physical than in the past. “Our approach is that this is a big game for us," Malzahn said on Thursday. "And our guys understand that, and not just for the seniors and the older guys and finishing the right way, but for next year and the offseason and everything that goes with it. So we’re really looking forward to playing Purdue in Nashville.”
