He's been doing freakishly athletic stuff like that since the 7th grade. You could always tell the kid was different.

He’s ultra talented. I can see why the coaches didn’t know where to put his talents.

Cause everyone is scared of Gatewood running, and was focusing on him.

Really excited for him this year. Makes cheering for Auburn almost as fun as when my brother was on the team.

Gatewood ran sprints with the receivers.

That’s either good leadership (lol) or he fricked up too.

He also took extra snaps with Brahms after practice. Might be related to it

Also, Smoke picked off another QB. Unclear which one

Gatewood isn’t live. Doubt that his running threat is scary given the circumstances. It’s what we’ve been complaining about this whole fall, right?

Nieko was a much better nfl player than a college one.. still can’t believe he had an nfl career.

Has. Thorpe is still playing. Albeit, he’s probably helping extend his career by being realistic with his contracts

Couple more notes:
-‘The interceptions today were by Smoke Monday and walkon linebacker Barton Lester. Both interceptions were off Cord Sandberg, who we mentioned in our practice report earlier this week seems to have a weak arm.

-Receiver Marquis McClain struggled and had several drops.

Offense shows 'flashes' of improvement in scrimmage

quote:

AUBURN, Alabama – Auburn’s offense didn’t explode out of the gate in the second scrimmage of preseason camp, but the Tigers did find more success Wednesday than the first scrimmage dominated by the defense.
One problem, however, continued: backup receivers continued to drop passes.

The Tigers held out their top four receivers — Anthony Schwartz (hand surgery), Eli Stove(knee), Will Hastings (knee) and Seth Williams (back) — as temperatures surpassed the 90-degree mark on the field at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
Still, there were moments of celebration for the offense.

“We had a couple of big drops that really would have kept drives alive and probably would have put points on the board as far as that goes,” Auburn coach Gus Malzahnsaid. “The offense overall really rebounded.

We’re starting to look like an Auburn offense. If we get out the inconsistencies with a few drops, I think we would have felt a little bit better about that, but overall, it was a really good day.”

Malzahn wasn’t ready to provide any hint as to which way he’s leaning with the quarterbacks, but true freshman Bo Nix was once again the first quarterback on the field in the scrimmage. Joey Gatewood played with the first-team offense, too, but also saw time with the backups.

The biggest plays for the offense: a long pass play to running back JaTarvious Whitlow and a 60-yard touchdown run by Malik Miller with Gatewood at quarterback. Running back DJ Williams also scored on a 5-yard run, according to sources.

The scrimmage Wednesday was closed to the media and public.

“Yeah, I feel like we’re just getting closer and closer every day, you know?” Whitlow said. “It takes time, you feel me? We still got a couple weeks left before we go see Oregon, so we got enough time to focus on ourselves right now.”

Auburn is 17 days away from its season opener against Oregon in Arlington, Texas. The Tigers have yet to name a starting quarterback, and injuries continue to be an issue at key spots.
Overall, it appeared Auburn’s defense once again won the scrimmage that included 2-minute drills.




quote:

“We gave up a play early, but rallied after that,” linebacker Chandler Wooten said. “We just finished strong.”

Malzahn even threw in a new wrinkle on offense to test the defense. The Tigers had an explosive play, Malzahn said. They ran it again later in the scrimmage, but attempted to disguise the play to confuse the defense.

“They sniffed it out,” Malzahn said. “The veteran group can make adjustments, which is so important, you know, over the course of games."

Confidence is not in short supply for Auburn’s running backs, despite the struggles with the backup receivers. One running back fumbled, but managed to recover it during the scrimmage. Still, expectations are high for the offense, especially when the Tigers regain their top four receivers on the field.

“Oh yeah, we made a lot of progress today,” senior running back Kam Martinsaid. “We just came out fighting. That's the game, you know, we come out fighting, I feel like we can be unstoppable.”

If we roll out Kam and Miller at RB, I may kick a baby.

Gus didn’t let him shine. Was only called passes to the right.

If Kam gets more than 5 carries against Oregon I’ll be concerned

If Kam Martin can catch, he might need to move to slot WR.
