By Jay Coulterjccoulter@gmail.com A few weeks back we took a look at the epic 1994 Auburn-Florida game.

NFL Draft Day Was A Sleeper

By on April 28th, 2008 in Football Comments Off on NFL Draft Day Was A Sleeper
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.

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.

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.
