With little information coming out of fall camp, fans are left to speculate on what will happen on September 3rd. What does the past tell Auburn fans about Gus Malzahn's ability in season openers? What about nonconference opponents? Take a look.

There was a time when no one envied Rod Bramblett. More than a few said there would never be anyone as beloved as the late Jim Fyffe. His catch phrase, Touchdown Auburn! was as much tradition as Toomer’s lemonade. None of that talk seemed to bother Bramblett, who is now in his 13th year as Auburn’s play-by-play announcer fo...

War Eagle, everybody! Two-a-days are done, and classes have started at Auburn. Here we are, just a little more than two weeks from the season opener. Defending ACC champion Clemson visits, and we still don't know who the starting quarterback or running back will be. I'm not sure the receiving lineup has been nailed down either. ... Read Full Story
Perspective is a funny thing. In Tuscaloosa and Athens, the fact that a quarterback has not been named is met with indifference. It’s just part of the process and in due time, a starter will be picked. In Auburn, it’s something akin to a death watch.When will it happen? Who’s it going to be? If you have three, then you don...

Everyone loves lists, especially when there is so little information flowing to fans. While most every list is out there, one you might not find is one listing what games coaches of the vaunted SEC West must win. Take a look!
Outside looking in, it certainly appears that the coaches are giving John Franklin III every opportunity to take control of the quarterback race. Whether that’s more of a testament to a lack of confidence in Sean White or to Franklin’s athletic ability is anyone’s guess.
Just when Auburn's quarterback race seemed to be narrowing down to Sean White being named the Tigers' starting quarterback, Offensive Coordinator Rhett Lashee said the decision might not be made till game time September 3rd. Although Head Coach Gus Malzahn said in his Sunday press conference that he might be ready to name the ... Read Full Story
War Eagle, everybody! We are now into the second week of fall camp, and most teams have already scrimmaged once. I had planned to do an Iron Bowl preview this week, but I think I am going to hold off another week, thanks to subterfuge and lack of information on quarterback races coming out of both camps. Instead we'll take a look at what we're hearing from week two of fall camp.
After a disappointing 2015, the Auburn Tigers enter the 2016 football season with a lot of new faces along with a lot of questions. Perhaps the biggest of which is how much can the Tiger offense rebound from last year’s 9th place SEC finish in total offense. However, there are reasons for optimism. For one, the Tigers will ha...

ESPN personality Kirk Herbstreit didn’t hesitate yesterday when asked who should start at quarterback for Auburn. In a series of tweets, he wrote, “They (Auburn) need Franklin to be the guy (playmaker at QB). 8 wins would be huge!”Gus Malzahn must have missed the message. All signs at fall camp point to Sean White leading ... Read Full Story

The new Auburn defensive coordinator said he was pleased to see that his players, "Came back in very good shape with a very good attitude." Of course he gave the typical rundown on key personal. Probably a significant point on personnel was Steele's ...
Auburn relishes the underdog role, and fans seemed primed to watch the Tigers unleash a talented and underappreciated team. However, the events of the last week have cast serious doubts in the minds of some Auburn fans, beginning with possible QB John Franklin III's behavior on Last Chance U and ending with the dismissal of Jovon Robinson. Suddenly, the good entropy is gone, and some fans feel like bad energy may be surrounding the program in a critical year.
