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. 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 guys make... Read Full Story

Nostalgia Friday: Dameyune Craig

By on April 25th, 2008 in Football Comments Off on Nostalgia Friday: Dameyune Craig
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.

Nostalgia Friday: 1984 Auburn vs. Florida State

By on April 18th, 2008 in Football Comments Off on Nostalgia Friday: 1984 Auburn vs. Florida State
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 Georgia... Read Full Story
