Coffee and Magnolia: Off-Weekend Wrap-up Edition

New, comments

With Auburn off this weekend, there's a bit less to talk about on Monday, so let's just tie up some loose ends from the weekend.

While football was off, the weekend continued for Auburn's other sports teams in action, this week. Auburn's soccer team had their five game winning streak broken Friday night against Samford in a 2-1 loss, but rebounded with a 2-0 victory over the Milwaukee Panthers on Sunday. Auburn has only been shut out in one match this year, and that was in an exhibition match against UGA to start the season off. The Tigers currently sit at 6-2 as they begin conference play against South Carolina this Sunday here in Auburn at noon.

Auburn Volleyball hosted the "Active Ankle Challenge" this weekend and finished 2-1. They defeated Troy 3 sets to none on Friday, Winthrop 3 sets to 2 on Saturday, but fell to South Florida 3-2 in the final match after rallying from an 0-2 deficit.

As for football, Auburn still sits at #5 in both polls and still has one of the toughest schedules in the nation.

Ryan Black from the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer tells us about Auburn's coaches not being concerned with Nick Marshall's passing ability.

Charles Goldberg writes about Auburn's prep for Kansas State and tells us some good news from Rhett Lashlee on Sammie Coates.

Joel Erickson tells us about the movements and shifts on Auburn's defensive line, which is sure to get a test facing Kansas State's running QB this Thursday night.

To throw some love in the direction of SB Nation's Kansas State site "Bring On The Cats," they've been running an interesting series where they've been submitting requests for our rivals to sound off on Auburn and the KSU game. For the most part it's been pretty tame, but that's because they've only just now gotten into teams that are really rivals. You can read their discussions with Mississippi StateTexas A&MOle MissArkansas, and now LSU over on their site.

Non-Auburn related: I'm still not over this from Saturday. Never will be.
