Two Auburn riders have been named SEC Riders of the Month. Congrats to them!
Things are looking a bit better on the injury front as two players could be back on the court for tomorrow night's exhibition. Still no word on Purifoy's final clearance. It's not an NCAA issue from what I've read, it's an ACT Board issue. Bruce Pearl isn't taking tonight's exhibition lightly, either.
The article might not be up in time for me to link it, but the Tigers pulled out a dramatic win last night in their first round of the SEC Tournament. After trailing 2-0, they fought back to even the score. The game went to penalty kicks. Auburn converted on all of their opportunities, but South Carolina completely whiffed on their first attempt, and that was all it took. The Tigers walked away with the 2-2 (5-3) victory and will face first seeded Florida tomorrow at 2:30pm CDT in the semifinals.
So WarRoom Eagle found this last night, but there's a Twitter account "live tweeting" the events of the Cam Newton recruitment saga five years after it all went down. What a world we live in, right?
Do you want to examine how well Carl Lawson played in his first game back for yourself? Well, WarRoom Eagle enables you to do that with this film of every snap Lawson was in the game.
Auburn picked up a JUCO commit from the nation's #1 JUCO athlete. The big question now is what position he'll play here at Auburn. Meanwhile, Gus Malzahn says that he believes Auburn's recruiting is going very well.
Texas A&M's coaches are saying all the right things about Carl. Oh, and Auburn's players are saying the right things about A&M stars, as well. It seems they've learned to guard their words so that they can't be twisted into bad tweets.
If you've been paying attention to the defensive linemen other than the more known members, then you've noticed that Devaroe Lawrence has been playing awfully well the last two games. He's providing some great depth at the defensive tackle position for us, right now.
Will Muschamp sees some progress in the Auburn defense, as hard as that might be to believe. The defense has really done what I expected to be enough this season. They've held most every opponent to less than 30 points (only LSU has scored more than 30 in regulation).
Sean White and Peyton Barber have been "at practice." Whether they've been practicing is another story. Both are expected to play this weekend, even with their injuries.
ESPN has video on recent Auburn re-commit David Marshall. You can check out our article from when he committed, here.
