News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

HOME ON THE PLAINS

There are things going on all week on the Plains, and Everett gives you the details on all of them.

AUBIE

Did you miss last weekend's halftime show? You can watch the video, here. It's well worth it just to see Bruce Pearl as the man behind the counter at Toomer's Drugs.

It starts the exact same as the above video, but you can also check out Aubie's 2015/16 Highlight Video. That video, of course, finished 1st in the UCA Nationals, so Aubie will be going for his 9th UCA title this January.

BASKETBALL

The ladies were in Louisiana last night to take on Southeast Louisiana. They rolled through all four quarters (yes, there are now four quarters in women's basketball) on their way to the victory.

The men face Colorado at 2pm this afternoon as part of the 24 Hours of College Basketball. At least it's not midnight, you know? Tuco has a preview for the game that you should check out as the Tigers look to avenge last season's loss. The school put out a nice hype video with some highlights from Friday night's win.

Bryce Brown will be back from his one game suspension, but the Tigers will still be without Tahj Shamsid-Deen and New Williams.

AL.com looks back at that UAB game to do the "5 Things We Learned" thing.

OTRHoopsReport (no idea who they are, really) has Auburn signee Jared Harper on their list of players to watch as a potential Atlanta Tip-Off Club player of the year in Georgia high school basketball.

FOOTBALL

Blake's got some TAKES for you, as is usual for a Monday. On the same vein, Dr Z's Hindsight is 20/20 discusses the Georgia game, as well.

#Legatron owns the Auburn record for consecutive field goals, now, with 14 in a row. He's having an amazing year and is a semi-finalist for the Lou Groza Award.

ESPN states the obvious in saying the QB situation is still a mess for Auburn, right now. If Sean White had been healthy, I don't think there's any question who the quarterback would be. He's not, though, so Auburn is trying to figure things out.

Auburn's defense has improved dramatically, though. The success against Georgia deep in the redzone is one of the metrics used to show just how much better they've been.

Gus talked Georgia and Idaho on TigerTalk last night. He also updated Austin Golson's status. He didn't go into much detail other than that Davonte Danzey will start at Center against Idaho. That's understandable, as Golson should not really be needed in that game even if he's recovered enough to play.

Military Appreciation Day is this weekend against Idaho, which means my Cadets will be leading Tiger Walk and running out onto the field along with a number of other things. At least we don't wear some horrendous camo uniforms, though.

SEC Nation will be in town for the Iron Bowl. It will be their first trip to the Plains this season.
