The Tigers were scrimmaging again, today, and Gus Malzahn met with the media afterwards. All credit to the beat writers who were there.

There's a lot to unpack here in Gus Malzahn's meeting with the press after today's scrimmage.

First, there's no movement at QB. It's definitely disconcerting that he's not even willing to narrow it down to 2 and claims he would do that if he were ready. I'd like to believe that this is all because the competition really is just "too good," but I guess we'll see.

On the youngsters, I think it's obvious to everyone that a lot of freshmen are going to play this season. Whether they be true or redshirts, they're going to get a lot of action. It appears he cleared up the depth chart at cornerback, too, and essentially named redshirt freshman Javaris Davis as the starter opposite Carlton Davis. Nickname suggestions for the Davis'? I'm open to suggestions.

The offensive line being what it was on A-Day should be obvious. That's the rotation we've seen all Fall Camp, too, so no shock there. What happens behind them is the question. If something happens to Dampeer, Golson will likely return to Center, but who will take over at Left Tackle? There are a lot of questions about the two-deep on the line. I look forward to seeing the actual depth chart.

Once again, we're told Marshall Taylor should return to the team "this week." I'm guessing that's not going to happen, now. Classes started at Auburn last Tuesday, so things aren't looking good on that front.

Kyle Davis being fully up to speed on Tuesday is good, though. Very good. We desperately need receivers, and he has all the tools to be a star right from the start.

Now to the tweets!
