By Acid ReignParaswarm@aol.com The pre-season ends for the Auburn Tigers, on September 13th, when they travel to Starkville Mississippi, for their first SEC game against the Mississippi State Bulldogs. Auburn is still smarting from last season’s disastrous home loss to the Bulldogs, and will be out for revenge. A win won’t come easily for either Continue Story…

NFL Draft Day Was A Sleeper

By Posted on: April 28th, 2008 in Football Comments Off

By Jay Coulterjccoulter@gmail.com NFL Draft Day may be the most overblown event in all of professional sports. I’ll admit to working my Saturday schedule around the event. I was anxious to see how quickly Quentin Groves and Pat Lee would be drafted. They are two of my favorites and it’s always great to see Auburn Continue Story…

Nostalgia Friday: Dameyune Craig

By Posted on: April 25th, 2008 in Football Comments Off

By Jay Coulterjccoulter@gmail.com Today we look at the career of former Auburn quarterback Dameyune Craig. In my lifetime, I’d have to say he’s the best quarterback I’ve ever seen wear the orange and blue. I was too young to remember Pat Sullivan. And no, I’m not suggesting he comes close to the Heisman winner. But Continue Story…

By War Eagle Atlantaglg68@aol.com Conference front-runner? Seems like a trend that we can all relish in: SEC team finishes season on a roll, only loses a pair of conference games, and although fails to make it to Atlanta in December, wins their bowl game big, thus setting the table to be run to the title Continue Story…

Nostalgia Friday: 1984 Auburn vs. Florida State

By Posted on: April 18th, 2008 in Football Comments Off

By Jay Coulterjccoulter@gmail.com The 1984 Florida State game in Tallahassee is without question the best game that was never seen by most Auburn fans. It’s my all time favorite. Despite pairing two top twenty teams, no networks picked up the game – what a shame. No, it didn’t have the importance of an Alabama or Continue Story…

Can Somebody Get Alabama A Spell Check?

By Jay Coulterjccoulter@gmail.com What would we do without Alabama?  Just when we think the cast of That 70’s Show couldn’t possibly look more stupid, they go and top themselves. As you may or probably don’t know (or care), Alabama honors its captains each year by putting their names and hand prints in cement at Denny Chimes in Continue Story…
