HOME ON THE PLAINS
Everett has you covered on the Auburn sporting events taking place in town this weekend. Unfortunately one has already happened (Volleyball last night, a 3-0 win over Georgia!), but there are other big things happening like soccer and the softball team getting their SEC Championship rings!
Head coach search news! Phillip Marshall lays out the top four at the moment. One is a head coach at a CUSA school, the others are assistants.
There are a lot of basketball updates from yesterday since it was SEC Media Days in Charlotte. That's why we consolidated them all into one story, yesterday!
There was a bit more from the official site from Bruce Pearl's time in Charlotte that they posted after I published that article. There's also some video of the players, too.
The Big Ten has rivalry trophies for almost every game. The Old Oaken Bucket. Paul Bunyan's Ax. Floyd of Rosedale. There's not much like that in the SEC. So, Kevin decided to create rivalry trophies for Auburn. Hopefully by the time this posts I'll have an update on the status of actually making one of these trophies.
Matt Scalici and Cole Cubelic broke down film of Auburn's offense against Kentucky. They'll tell you what helped the Tigers be more successful in Lexington.
Did Will Muschamp have anything particularly special to say during his meeting with the press Wednesday night? Oh, not much, just saying that Carl Lawson could return soon and WAIT, WHAT WAS THAT?!?!?!? I mean, if you read into what he said there, the resolution they expect to hear soon could also be that he's done for the year. However, he certainly sounds very optimistic. He won't be back this week. I doubt next week. Against A&M? We might see #55 return.
GridironNow.com's Tony Barnhart spoke to Will Muschamp and head coach Gus Malzahn about the way the season has gone and thoughts on how things may go from here.
Tre Williams returned from his injury last week, but he wasn't quite 100%. We'll need him this weekend, that's for sure, so hopefully he really is almost back to full speed.
It's been a slow start after suffering a knee injury last season that required surgery, but DaVonte Lambert is picking up steam, now. It showed against Kentucky where he was responsible for a sack and the key QB hurry on the final 4th down.
Ricardo Louis was on SEC Now, yesterday. He spoke about how excited he was for the more aggressive game plan against Kentucky. That's easy to understand when you see that he had a career night against the Wildcats.
ESPN goes through their midseason reviews and their best and worst predictions. Hmm. I wonder what they consider one of their worst.
Auburn offensive line coach J.B. Grimes is a nominee for the national Courage Award for his fight against Cancer.
