Where this Auburn team is heading may be the greatest mystery since Danny Sheridan placed the bagman in the witness protection program. Through much of the first half of the season Auburn Fast was replaced by Auburn Neutral. Ellis Johnson threatened to turn Tiger football into some kind of 1980’s flashback where defense still ...

This week's action kicks off on Thursday night with two games including ...
The road ahead is a long one, six games in a row, three of them against top-ten rated teams who have more than enough reasons to hold a grudge against these Tigers after last year's games. Each of those three are rivals for both the SEC Championship game and the College Football Playoff slots. But I get the feeling this team and this coaching staff wouldn't have it any other way.
A little more than halfway through the 2014 season is a good time for an introspective look back on what has happened over the last eight weeks. Auburn just had its last break before the final six games of the season, and the Southeastern Conference has begun to segregate into title contenders, spoilers, pretenders and also rans...

How do words do it justice? For the first time ever, a conference occupies four of the top five spots in the AP College Football Poll. The fact that all of the teams come from the SEC West is just well again, I have no words. No wonder Mike Slive is stepping down as SEC commissioner next summer. How do you top this?What makes th...

Turnover after turnover, flag after flag, missed opportunity on top of missed opportunity -- the Malzahn-coached team we witnessed last Saturday was most certainly not the one we have grown to adore over the past year. Following the first defensive stand that forced the 'Dawgs to a three and out, I told my cousin, "That was easi... Read Full Story
Auburn's football team went 13-0, finished No. 2 in the nation, and had four 1st Round NFL Draft picks in 2004. Yet the Tigers were denied the chance to play for the national championship. Instead Oklahoma was pitted against USC, and the Sooners were promptly blown out 55-19 by the Trojans.Many thought Auburn would have been a b... Read Full Story
The bloodletting has begun. The SEC West has started to play each other in earnest, and the teams currently at the top raise huge questions about the validity of nearly every preseason poll and pundit on the Internet, just like last year when they overlooked Auburn. The two Mississippi teams are now both bowl eligible and undefeated and looking stronger every week. Either this is an unexpected-once-in-a-lifetime occurrence (you know, just like last year), or perhaps those preseason polls and reports aren't worth the ether they're printed on?
Will the real Auburn football team please stand up?
