Auburn running back Brent Fullwood runs over Vols in 1986 Tennessee game.
In the last three days here at Track ‘Em Tigers, we have been taking nominations for our own Auburn Tigers Football Hall of Fame. It’s a challenging task to come up with a slate of names when one is looking at hundreds of great players from the past 122 years.
Therefore we turned once again to our readership for assistance. Our members came through, making over 80 nominations along with some excellent reasons for their selections. Today we have prepared two ballots for our readers to determine who will make up the class of 2015.
We announced on Monday that this year we will have two classifications for nominations. One representing players from the last 40 years and one representing “old school” Tigers – those who played before 1975. All-American Jimmy Sidle received an automatic selection into the old school category.
To get our other four selections for the old school category and nine selections for the more recent players, we have prepared a ballot/poll based on the names provided by TET members from this week’s nominations.
There are 12 names on the regular ballot and six on the old school ballot. Nine will be chosen from the first poll and four from the second. The poll will close Monday, July sixth.
The names receiving the highest number of votes will be included in this year’s class of the Track ‘Em Tigers Football Hall of Fame. So vote for the players you would like to see go into this year’s HOF class. Next week, we will publish a tribute article to the list of winners.
Since the comments for Monday’s article have been closed, please feel free to discuss your ballot here on this post.
We thank you and again wish all a safe and Happy 4th of July.

War Eagle, everybody. It's a somber day, as I have just been informed that former Auburn center James Kiger passed away early this morning in an automobile accident. Kiger was a member of the undefeated 1993 Auburn squad and was the starting center on the 1996 team for Dameyune Craig that went 8 - 4 and won the Independence Bowl. Kiger helped Craig set an Auburn total offense in a single game record that didn't fall till Nick Marshall broke it in last season's Iron Bowl.Read Full Story
War Eagle, everybody! It's time now for another Auburn opponent preview. On October 3rd, the Tigers host the San Jose State Spartans. The two teams met last year for the first time, and things didn't go so well for the Spartans. They hung with the Tigers for about a quarter, hitting a 75-yard bomb to stay in the game. A Jermaine Whitehead interception set Auburn up to take a 21-7 lead, and ...Read Full Story
It makes sense on so many levels. First, both conferences have mandated its teams play an opponent from a Power Five conference. So renewing the rivalry would solve that issue for both schools...Read Full Story
With this hire, Auburn AD Jay Jacobs continues to deliver on his promise to make every Auburn sport a championship contender. Making promises to a fan base to hire championship caliber coaches is one thing, being able to come through on those promises is quite another.Read Full Story
While we all know preseason all-conference teams are like preseason Top 25 rankings – meaningless, for the football-starved fan in the off season, they are fun to talk about. So at least we can now start talking about the 2015 football season. Who do you think should be on the list? Was someone left off? Better yet, who’s your prediction for Division champs and SEC champs?Read Full Story
War Eagle, everybody! It's time now for the first Auburn SEC opponent preview of the year! On September 19th, Auburn opens its SEC season in Baton Rouge against the LSU Tigers. It will be a huge test for Auburn in the most hostile stadium in the league. A year ago, it was a veteran Auburn team beating up on a young LSU squad. This year, the roles could be reversed.Read Full Story
