More From Practice

  • Vance Smith has moved from right tackle to left tackle.
  • Chizik says Mike McNeil has made great progress but is not sure of a return timeframe. He is day to day.
  • The team will practice in full pads in one of tomorrow's practices and scrimmage in Jordan Hare on Tuesday.
  • Zach Clayton is working at defensive tackle and defensive end.
  • Aubrey Phillips did make it to practice today but did not participate.
  • Montez Billings says he is not sure if he will be back for the LA Tech game. He says the academic issue that held him out of spring is ongoing even though he got his degree this summer.

    Huh??? How can there be an academic issue if he's already graduated?

  5. Well if he would have to be in grad school he may be having some problems getting that set up. Also it may be that he has not done well enough to graduate within a major but has still met a graduation requirement for a less specific degree. I have a high school buddy who was at Auburn with me that was in engineering courses and failed to reach graduation status for engineering but accepted a diploma in applied sciences or something to that affect. It really isnt as outlandish as it sounds
