News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

Kareem Canty can shoot a beautiful three-point shot, can't he? Unfortunately, even though he put the team on his back for the last bit of the 2nd half and tied the game with his four three pointers in the final two minutes, the Tigers couldn't overcome the Blue Raiders in overtime.

If you want to watch highlights of the game, you can do it here.

The ladies also went to overtime in their weekend game, and also came up just short. They travelled all the way to Wisconsin to take on Marquette and fell 70-69.

Where's the defensive coordinator search? Does anyone really know? I had some thoughts on that and some more thoughts on whether or not Rhett Lashlee may leave for another coaching job, as well.

What will the new coordinator have to work with when he's named? Well, it's going to be interesting. One thing is for sure, and that's that Auburn's defense is going to be very young next season.

The team gave out post-season awards in a banquet Saturday night. All of the awards were well deserved. Particularly the one for offensive play of the year.

The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer has begun reviewing position groups for the 2015 season. They started with the wide receiver corps, a group that underperformed overall to say the least.

In a feel good story, MOTHRATRON was put to a very good use the other night, as QB/WR Jonathan Wallace used it to propose to his girlfriend.

Former Auburn defensive back Dell McGee is going to be the interim head coach for Georgia Southern in the GoDaddy Bowl. He's been on staff as the running backs coach there for the past two years, and since Georgia Southern has led the nation in rushing the last two years I think it's safe to say he's done a pretty good job. If he had a little more experience at the college level I think he'd get a look at being the main guy, but he's only been coaching at the major college level for the last two years. He was an analyst on Auburn's 2013 staff. I will say this, though. A shiny bald-headed for Auburn player led Georgia Southern to their first national titles, so it's only fitting another shiny bald-headed former Auburn player is coaching the bowl game.
