Auburn held its second scrimmage of fall camp this morning, and there were plenty of new updates. On to the tweets:

Gus Malzahn liked what he saw, and gave out 7 scholarships to walk-on players last night:

The first priority from the scrimmage is the quarterback race. Jeremy Johnson was held out due to a minor hand injury, but the coaching staff assured everyone that they shouldn’t read too much into that.

As for the rest of the offense:

And an interview with a young defender:

There was also an unfortunate injury this week:

And in the “can’t help but shrug your shoulders and smile” news:

Good luck Rashaad. You’re almost certainly a better option that most politicians out there already.

As for my opinion on the scrimmage, we didn’t get much information, but that’s normal. I am really coming around on the idea of Kamryn Pettway as the feature back. We know from last year and A-Day that he runs angry. As good as Cameron Artis-Payne and Peyton Barber were, that wasn’t them. Tre Smith seemed to take every slight he was ever given and channel it into his carries. I think Pettway can do the same.

That said, Auburn will need big play threats as well. That’s what needs to be developed more than anything this fall. The quarterback decision plays directly into that. I still think White starts against Clemson, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Franklin is taking the majority of snaps by November.
