AUsome Links: Spring Practice and Basketball in New Orleans

Mar 3, 2012; Auburn, AL, USA; Auburn Tigers forward Kenny Gabriel (22) celebrates after beating the LSU Tigers at Auburn Arena.

- Auburn University announced spring football practice would begin on March 23. The Tigers will begin spring training with questions at quarterback (is anyone good enough to start?), running back (is anyone capable of not starting?) and other positions. This is Auburn's first step in their quest to return to a national championship two years removed from beating Oregon for the crown.

- The basketball team (15-15) will face Ole Miss in the first round of the SEC Tournament in New Orleans. It's win or go home for the Tigers in New Orleans this week, as the only way Auburn can make the NCAA Tournament is to win the SEC Tournament, which is a freakishly tough task considering Kentucky is aware that the Tournament's this week. I give it about a 0.5% chance that Auburn wins the SEC Tournament.... so there's a chance.
