Has LSU Become Auburn’s Biggest Rival?

By on September 10th, 2006 in Football Comments Off on Has LSU Become Auburn’s Biggest Rival?
It's finally LSU week. This is the week that Auburn and LSU fans have been looking forward to all summer. It's hard to believe that the two schools only started playing each other annually in 1992. Prior to the start of SEC division play, the two Tigers rarely saw each other on the field (unfortunately, 1988 was one of those ye... Read Full Story

Auburn’s Kenny Irons Is Starting To Feel The Love

By on September 8th, 2006 in Football Comments Off on Auburn’s Kenny Irons Is Starting To Feel The Love
Like many of you I was surprised during the summer when the preseason publications came out and Auburn running back Kenny Irons wasn't a consensus All-American. All he did last season was lead the SEC in almost every statistical category. He did this despite not taking over the starting job until the Arkansas game. So why was h... Read Full Story

Karibi Dede. Don't you just love to say that name? That is without question, the coolest name in all of college football.

“Wild Child” Gets Starting Nod At Strong Safety

By on September 7th, 2006 in Football Comments Off on “Wild Child” Gets Starting Nod At Strong Safety
One of the highlights of Auburn's win over Washington State was the play of Tristan Davis. His kick-off returns of 30 and 37 yards made you realize that his 162 yard rushing performance against Kentucky last year was no fluke. This guy can flat out motor. As good as he is running the ball, he may be just as good at strong safet... Read Full Story

War Eagle Hey!

Too much hype? No way. Saturday was old school. You could see Shug smiling from the clouds. Saturday was A.P.I. football. This was the game that your grandfather played. Throw out Steve Spurrier, the Fun-N-Gun and the Pro-Set offense. Saturday was the kind of football that the SEC was built on. First downs were like touchdowns.... Read Full Story

Alabama Football Program Continues to Circle the Drain

By on September 6th, 2006 in Football Comments Off on Alabama Football Program Continues to Circle the Drain
Great head coaches make the tough decisions. They sometimes make the unpopular decisions. Great coaches make decisions that may hurt them in the short term but will pay huge dividends in the long run. Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville and Texas coach Mack Brown are two of the great ones. Each has had to deal with off-the-field trou... Read Full Story

Who Is Matt Clark?

By on September 6th, 2006 in Football Comments Off on Who Is Matt Clark?
Who is Matt Clark? That's a question a lot of Auburn fans have been asking lately. Out of nowhere, Clark appeared just before last year's game with Ball State. Special teams coach Eddie Gran calls Clark a "kicking specialist". I'll second that. If you watched Saturday's game with Washington State you undoubtedly were impressed... Read Full Story

By on September 5th, 2006 in Football Comments Off on A Wounded Dog Is A Dangerous Dog
Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville is not taking any chances when it comes to this week's match-up with Mississippi State. And as fans, you shouldn't count it as an automatic win. I'm not saying that the Tigers won't win. They will. They are three touchdown favorites and are playing a team with a red-shirt freshman at quarterback. W... Read Full Story
