Auburn offensive lineman Chaz Ramsey asked for and has received his release from the football team, but may remain at Auburn and return to the team says AuburnSports.com.
Ramsey started ten games as a true freshman last year, but had back surgery during the offseason and has not been with the team this fall. He is still in enrolled at Auburn, but has the option to transfer.
I’m not really sure why he would want to leave. I think he would pretty much be offered the starting job next year once he’s healthy. Maybe it was the “fans” booing the team they claim to pull for and that like to act like they could play, coach, or recruit any better. Oh, and I’m sure all those recruits attending the game would love to come to a place where the fans will boo them.
On a positive note, the Arkansas game is slated for 4pm CDT next week. That means no TV, but possibly pay-per-view. It also means no 11:30 game which I’m always happy to hear. Especially against Arkansas (see 2006).
You think you could cheer for the team that you pull for this week “fans”? And yes that means every player, especially the one who threw a perfect touchdown pass two quarters before, something his backup still hasn’t done. Certain player right, certain player left obviously doesn’t work every play, and that’s all that certain player seems to be able to do right now. I despise you fans for making me have to seem to choose sides, but that’s what you do when you chant names and boo others. Sorry I needed to say that.
Todd’s not the answer but neither is booing. I thought our student section had grown up after last year. If you boo then boo the play calling.
I’m so glad the Arky game isn’t 11:30. I think Raycom games cause more incentive for fans to stay home.
Look, I booed. I wasn’t booing Todd, I was booing franklin. His playcalling is bad, gameplan is bad, and you can tell that our players aren’t coached very well on what to do. We have the athletes to run a west Virginia type offense. Burns should start, and we should run the ball out of the spread. Speed options, zone read plays, and quick passes. I hate this crap where we try to get a 30 yard pass every play. When Todd is in there and we run the zone read play, the whole defense keys on the running back because they don’t have to respect todd’s running ability. If burns was in there the running game would be a lot more effective. We can’t bring burns in and run 3 straight qb draws. That is just too predictable, and is really just stupid.
Those 3 straight QB draws have caused a lot of people to question franklin’s motives in making those calls.
I’m in no position to comment, obviously. But I’ll echo what I said at my own site (www.firewillheath.com) the other day: as an Alabama fan, someone who wants Alabama to win every game they play … I’m terrified of Kodi Burns. Chris Todd? Meh.
I’ll leave it up to you whether how your guy makes another team’s fan base feel should have anything to do with your coach’s decision. But I’m scared to death of Burns. I have utterly no fear whatsoever of Chris Todd.
I don’t think it matters who the qb is going to be. The offense just isn’t clicking. I don’t see them getting it turned around this year. The o-line has been a disappointment. You can count on a Ziemba brain-fart to kill a good drive. Bosley isn’t a SEC tackle. I hope they beat the teams they are supposed to and them maybe an upset or two (Bama-UGA).
I completely agree with your QB point. Burns is a better runner, Todd is a better passer, and neither one’s best is that much better than the others. Todd has thrown 30-50 yard passes, touchdown passes. Burns has had a few 10 yard runs and 5 yard passes. I want them both to play with Burns in spot situations, but I say again, I despise you that make it seem like I have to choose sides.
The major problem is the offensive line. It doesn’t matter if the QB makes the right call on the zone read, unless Ben Tate jumps outside, every single rush is stopped. It’s ridiculous. Blame the O-line, the part of the team that should be good, the part of the team that is responsible for almost all penalties. Get off a guy who throws one INT out of 40 attempts.
This is all hearsay from my cousin in Jackson, MS; who went to the same HS as Chaz and knows his family.
He told me that Chaz was leaving AU when we saw each other at the USM game. The biggest reason was that Chaz’s mom was unhappy with the situation following his injury. Adding to that was the scuffle in the spring and re-injuring himself. He also said that Chaz had gone outside of AU’s physical therapy and training regimen. He apparently was doing some things that he was not suppose to be doing, in an effort to speed up his recovery (and ended up hindering it more than helping).
I don’t know how true any of that is, but it sounds to me like he just didn’t have the right attitude and mentality. Oh, and he also said that he was transferring to Miss St. I guess we’ll see soon enough.
Wow, thanks for the insight.
