Note to self: Do not sit in east stands during day games with temps over 50 degrees if you can help it.   Saturday you couldn’t have asked for a prettier day for football, except for it to have been a little bit cooler. Although mid 70s sounds fine, there’s got to be a thing called the sunshine factorthat raises the Continue Story…

Auburn fans got somewhat of a surprise last night when they debuted at number four in the first BCS rankings. Why? They can thank the computers. While Auburn sits at number five in both the Harris and Coaches polls this week, the computers liked the Tigers better and put them at number three. That landed Continue Story…

Arkansas v Auburn

How appropriate that Bo Jackson led Auburn onto Pat Dye Field Saturday to face Arkansas. By day’s end, 25 years after leaving Auburn, the Tigers crowned his successor. With apologies to Brent Fullwood, Dameyune Craig, Carnell Williams and Ronnie Brown, Auburn fans are witnessing the greatest performance at Jordan-Hare Stadium in a quarter century. My Continue Story…

Lots of upsets this past Saturday and many exciting games among the 27 we had to choose from. I’m glad Yahoo chose to throw in other games of particular interest outside the Top 25 this year. Jack Burton was the weekly winner at 22 points, tying the highest output of any group member in a single week Continue Story…

As we boldly proclaimed a week ago, not only is Auburn QB Cameron Newton a Heisman candidate, but according to an ESPN article today, he is the front runner. With Michigan losing again yesterday, it appears that QB Denard Robinson is out. With Nebraska losing for the first time this season to Texas, their freshmen QBTaylor Martinez‘s hopes have Continue Story…

War Eagle, everybody! It’s time now for the Acid Reign report on Auburn’s 65-43 win over the Arkansas Razorbacks. Let me repeat that: 65-43! No, that’s not a basketball score. No, we haven’t joined the WAC or PAC-10. Auburn has never scored that many points against an SEC opponent. I believe the previous high was set Continue Story…
