McAdory: Try Updyke in Lee County and get it over with | Opelika-Auburn News

Alabama superfan Harvey Updyke would receive no less of a fair trial in a Lee County courtroom than anywhere else in America. If a juror’s familiarity with the case is the issue, then I’m afraid you’re going to have a hard time finding a person anywhere in the Southeast who doesn’t know about Harvey Updyke and the Toomer’s Oaks.

Yes. Just get this guy in jail so we can begin to move on.

Goalkeeper Amy Howard leads Auburn soccer on a West Coast weekend series | The War Eagle Reader

Howard’s return (in 2011) eventually made the Tigers’ postseason run in the SEC Tournament possible, with Howard tallying shutouts against LSU and Tennessee in the tournament’s first two rounds before Auburn’s 3-2 win over Florida in the championship game.

If the Tigers can win a couple of games against tough opponents away from home, it will be a good indication that Auburn can add an SEC regular season championship to last year's tournament title.

New street banners hanging on College Street | The War Eagle Reader

Auburn University is welcoming the Auburn fans home this football season with new street banners affixed to light poles on S. College Street downtown.

While we're not crazy about the use of "Auburn Family," it will be nice to have everyone back on the Plains again on Sept. 15.

Atlanta stadium deal could be done by end of year | Atlanta Journal-Constitution

After a lengthy process that included switching plans midstream, a deal to build a $948 million retractable-roof football stadium in downtown Atlanta could be reached by year's end, the Georgia World Congress Center said. It's the strongest indication so far that negotiations with the Atlanta Falcons — which began 18 months ago — are closing in on an agreement to make a playing field become reality.

A new stadium in Atlanta would likely mean a new home for the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Classic, the SEC Championship Game and the Chick-fil-A Bowl. It could also give the city some leverage during the next, inevitable round of talks regarding a college football playoff.

No Watkins? No problem with Hopkins in lineup | The Charleston Post and Courier

But at receiver, only Southern Cal has more good players, a big reason why Clemson can roll to victory in Dabo Swinney's most critical season opener. Even without sensational Sammy, suspended for the first two games as punishment for a May arrest on misdemeanor charges of simple possession of marijuana and possession of a controlled substance. It starts with one of the most underrated players in America. Hopkins, a junior from Central, quietly has amassed 124 catches over his first two college seasons. That was when he was smaller and slower.

If Clemson folks want to think that their offense won't miss a beat despite missing its best player, we won't burst their bubble. We'll let the Auburn secondary take care of that.
