The Daily Aggie :: 09/18/07

A quick editorial note, those of you looking for our weekly interview with Coach Mumme which normally runs on Tuesdays, we had some scheduling difficulties with Coach yesterday and we hope to get with him today.

The good weekend for the Aggies continued into Monday as both Chris Williams and Krista Altermatt were both named WAC Players of the Week for their respective sports, football and volleyball.

Before we get into the links for today (and there are plenty)... this is your daily reminder to vote for Chase Holbrook in the Davey O'Brien fan vote. Remember, you can vote every day and the top three vote getters automatically advance to the semifinal round of voting.

On to today's links...

Jason Groves of the Las Cruces Sun-News conducted an interview with NMSU Athletic Director McKinley Boston. Dr. Boston revealed that the Aggies will be adding another sport in the fall of 2009... Women's Soccer. Dr. Boston says that adding women's soccer enable NMSU to be in compliance with Title IX.

Collin Mickle of NBC13 writes that the Auburn defense is ready to step up it's game this weekend. Despite only giving up an average of 17 points per game, defensive coordinator Will Muschamp is quick to point out that the defense has given up the winning points in either the fourth quarter or overtime.

Evan Woodbury of the Alabama Press-Register writes that Auburn offensive coordinator Al Borgess < a href="http://www.al.com/sports/press-register/index.ssf?/base/sports/119010696387560.xml&coll=3">is concerned about the Tigers' turnover problem. They've given up the rock 12 times this year, including five in each of the past two games.

Phillip Marshall of the Huntsville Times reports that the Auburn seniors called a team meeting on Sunday and offensive line coach Hugh Nall and linebackers coach James Willis say that Auburn is going to be playing "Foxhole Football" from here on out. "You don't want anybody in a foxhole with you that's not going to fight to win, whatever the situation is", said Nall.

Jay G. Tate of the Montgomery Advertiser writes that Auburn senior quarterback Brandon Cox is taking all the criticism from the fans in stride.

Mark Edwards of the Decatur Daily thinks Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville was too quick in benching senior quarterback Brandon Cox.

The Decatur Daily also reports that the injury bug has hit the Auburn linebacking corps.

Christa Turner of the Legend Enquirer writes that neither Tigers' head coach Tommy Tuberville and offensive coordinator Al Borgess is too keen on the two-quarterback system.

Christa Turner also writes that moving Auburn junior wide receiver Robert Dunn from the slot to the flanker position resulted in more snaps for Dunn. He took an average of 15-30 snaps in the Tigers' first two games but that number jumped to 50 against Mississippi State.

Dan Hinxman of the the Reno Gazette Journal writes that miscues are driving WAC coaches crazy.

Finally, let us remind you that this Saturday is Pack The Pan Am night for Aggie volleyball versus #13 Hawai'i.
