DeRon Furr is M.I.A.
so true freshman quarterback/safety Deron Furr decided to skip practice the last couple of days after getting in a fight last weekend with a teammate...or something equally as stupid. apparently he's not too happy about being converted into a safety after being recruited as a QB for Auburn's new spread offense (this is what happens when you sign 3 fucking QBs to your class at one time).
Furr is a great athlete and delivered a punishing hit on a reverse during the Auburn spring game...so i was pretty excited about him playing safety this year. he's big and fast and strong. seems like a good fit, especially with the Tigers thin at DB. obviously he's a kid and he's frustrated about having his position switched, i just hope he doesn't decide to transfer out of town and try to go play QB at a school like Troy or UAB. Auburn has a pretty good track record of taking highschool quarterbacks and turning them into stars at other positions.
if Furr was an NFL QB prospect i'd understand his frustrations a lot more, but he was recruited as an athlete...which means you play where the coach wants you to. oh well. like i said, he's a kid. and kids are bitches.
