These are thrown together a bit more haphazardly than usual since I don't have the easy lunch time period that I used to have. Now I have to be a bit more rushed. Still, there's actually some good information in here. Is Gus loosening up a bit?
The biggest news, of course, is that Kamryn Pettway WILL play. So will Chandler Cox. That... That's huge. Sean White threw "some" in practice, and I'd still be shocked if he played, but having Bubba and Bulldozer back is beyond good news for Auburn. Even if they're limited a bit.
I love Gus' "joke" that Alabama's offense is looking more and more like Auburn's every year. It's 100% true. Funny how that works, huh? I guess maybe it's not so much a "high school" offense, after all.
Of course, I'd like to see some more advanced things put into Gus' offense, but that's a different story for another day (and a more Xs and Os savvy person than me).
Having Holsey and Darrell Williams back will help, too. I'm glad Williams doesn't have a concussion after that blow to the head he took. I didn't see anything on Carlton Davis in here, though, so that worries me a bit. I hope he was just precautionary last week and will be back to normal.
Alright, that's all I can get to. Now to the Tweets!
