Outback Bowl News and Notes...

If the early bowl season is any indication, Auburn's perceived cake walk against Northwestern on Friday may be fool's gold.  Underdogs have now won six of the first ten bowl games of the year.  Auburn enters the Outback Bowl a touchdown favorite...

War Eagle Atlanta's post yesterday on the Forbes Magazine story about college football's most valuable football teams, seems a little off in my estimation.  How can the South Carolina program be more valuable than Auburn's and yet the Tigers are one spot ahead of Southern Cal which sits in Los Angeles with no professional football team?

One of our own loyal readers and contributors, Kool Bell has a new gig I want to tell you about.  He's started blogging about Auburn at Phil Steele's website. I'm pumped about him getting the opportunity. As you know, Steele puts out arguably the finest preseason college football publication in America.  His site is a must visit.  Click here to check out Kool Bell's work...

There's a good story out this morning from Chris Low, the SEC blogger over at ESPN. He spent time this week with Auburn coach Gene Chizik and captured some of his thoughts on his first season at Auburn...

What is it with these Florida coaches? First, basketball coach Billy Donovan tries to bolt to the Orlando Magic only to change his mind a day later, and now Pope Urban Meyer has a change of heart after one practice following his announced retirement. I guess the heartwarming story about his daughter proclaiming she finally gets her father back was not as real as first thought...

If you missed last night's Monday Night Football contest, you missed a great one. Former Auburn wide receiver Devin Aromashodu caught a dramatic 39-yard touchdown pass in overtime to give the Chicago Bears a 36-30 win over Bret Favre and the Minnesota Vikings.  He finished the night with 150 yards in receptions. You may remember that Aromashodu got one of the last roster spots on the team back in August...

The Mike Leach story taking place out in Lubbock with Texas Tech is just strange. In case you missed it, the Red Raiders coach is accused of locking sophomore receiver Adam James in a closet for several hours after he received a concussion in practice. James is the son of former SMU great and ESPN personality Craig James. If you saw the 60 Minutes spot that ran last year on Leach, you know he's one strange dude...

As Auburn goes for its eighth win on Friday, you have to wonder what might have been had Mike McNeil, Aairon Savage and Zac Etheridge all been healthy this season in the Auburn defensive secondary...

I recently picked up the 20th Anniversary Retrospective DVD of Auburn's 30-20 win over Alabama in 1989. I highly recommend it. It contains a ton of raw footage from the game that's never been seen before.  It also has the entire locker room speech by former coach Pat Dye. It can be ordered through any of the Auburn bookstores.
