What would you do for Tickets to Saturday’s Auburn-LSU Game?

By on September 14th, 2006 in Football Comments Off on What would you do for Tickets to Saturday’s Auburn-LSU Game?
It was bound to happen. Last year some kids in South Bend, Indiana auctioned off their mom on Ebay along with an extra ticket to the Notre Dame-USC game. Now things have gone from bad to worse.   A local South Bend resident is at it again. This time, Jason Gordon agreed to let some "friends" give him a full body waxing in ret... Read Full Story

LSU Fans Explode Over Bayou Trash Article

By on September 13th, 2006 in Football Comments Off on LSU Fans Explode Over Bayou Trash Article
Earlier this week, we talked about how big the LSU game had become and whether it was really Auburn's biggest rival. That question is still up for debate. What's not up for debate is the amount of fun I've had here this week. In the two seasons I've been writing, LSU week has always generated the most traffic to the web site.... Read Full Story

Auburn’s Chances May Again Rest In Courtney Taylor’s Hands

By on September 13th, 2006 in Football Comments Off on Auburn’s Chances May Again Rest In Courtney Taylor’s Hands
When Auburn people think of LSU, they automatically think of Courtney Taylor and the "Catch." It's in the history books of great Tiger plays, right up there with Punt Bama Punt, Bo Over The Top and Reverse To Victory. Taylor's catch in the end zone in 2004 to beat LSU may be the biggest catch in Auburn history. Taylor's hands f... Read Full Story

Shhh! Don't look now but the hottest field goal kicker in the country resides on the Plains of Auburn and his name is John Vaughn. It's not often that one gets to confront his worst fears. Vaughn will get that chance on Saturday when LSU comes to town. No one has to be reminded of last year. It was perhaps the single worst perf... Read Full Story

Poor Pitiful LSU… They Get No Respect

By on September 12th, 2006 in Football Comments Off on Poor Pitiful LSU… They Get No Respect
LSU's battle cry this week is... We get no respect. Huh? OK, Rodney Dangerfield, whatever works for you. Apparently the LSU coaches are crying to their players that Auburn gets all the national attention. Poor pitiful me. Give me a break LSU. This is SEC football. We all get attention. Is that what it takes to motivate your foo... Read Full Story

Yes it’s True… LSU Fans Smell Like Corn Dogs

By on September 11th, 2006 in Football Comments Off on Yes it’s True… LSU Fans Smell Like Corn Dogs
I n what has become an Auburn tradition, it's time to tell the story of how LSU fans became corn dogs. For years, fans around the SEC have commented on the aroma of our friends in Bayou country. They smell different from any other school in the conference. It's a unique stench that well, can only be described as the smell of a ... Read Full Story

By on September 10th, 2006 in Football Comments Off on Final Exam Comes Early for Auburn on Saturday
Auburn's game Saturday at Mississippi State made you feel good all over. Bradon Cox overcame a somewhat slow start against Washington State last week to post a solid performance over the Bulldogs.

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. I'd love to be Auburn radio play-by-play man Rod Bramblett just for a night so I could say that name over and over again. Dede is more than just a cool name. The senior from Woodbridge, Virginia has become ... Read Full Story

“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!

By on September 7th, 2006 in Football Comments Off on 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

A Wounded Dog Is A Dangerous Dog

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
