A look around the Auburn corner of the internet.

Kevin C. Cox

With it being an off week, there really haven't been too many stories that came out yesterday about Auburn football. Things will pick up again next week as we get into game week.

Cole Cubelic breaks down some film of Auburn's defense against Mississippi State.

Auburn is looking at ways to fix the issues of Nick Marshall's passes being batted/tipped at the line. I've been saying for a while now that I think we ought to look at rolling him out, more. He's a much better passer when he's on the move. Or at least it has appeared that way to me. I trust the coaches to know what they're doing.

The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer has a feature on redshirt freshman kicker Daniel Carlson. If there is one thing Auburn has done exceptionally well at over the last few years it's recruit kickers. It seems we have a steady flow of great ones and never really miss a beat when one leaves and a new one takes over.

On October 30th, Auburn basketball will host "The Pearl Jam" for students only. The results of the student section naming as well as introductions of the players and coaches and many other fun things will occur. Just another example of a way Bruce Pearl is trying to get the Auburn fanbase excited about and into Auburn basketball.

In some feel good stories:

Shon Coleman was nominated for the Football Writers Association of America's Courage Award for overcoming cancer. Shon's story is an amazing one and is a huge inspiration.

Tim Hudson is going to the World Series for the first time in his 16 year MLB career. Watch video of him celebrating the Giants clinching the National League pennant last night.

Carnell "Cadillac" Williams will be a part of the 2014 SEC Legends class honored this weekend.

In Not So Feel Good News, Jimbo Fisher said this about Bo Jackson's comments on Winston:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Fisher: &quot;Bo (Jackson) grew up with Jameis in Bessemer for 18 years and never said anything to him. Why would he say anything to him now?&quot;</p>&mdash; Warchant.com (@Warchant) <a href="https://twitter.com/Warchant/status/523101645446451200">October 17, 2014</a></blockquote>

Ummm... no, Jimbo. Bo did not grow up with Jameis in Bessemer. I'm pretty sure Bo hasn't lived in Bessemer since long before Jameis was born.
