News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

BASKETBALL

Let's get the bad stuff out of the way, first. Auburn lost to Harvard yesterday in the Diamond Head Classic in a rather disgusting fashion. Dr Z has an excellent recap of what went down in the game. Auburn will now play Hawaii on Christmas Day in the 3rd place game of the tournament. In other bad news, TJ Dunans went down with an injury during the game. Hopefully it's not very serious, though.

But, hey, this alley-oop dunk happened.

On the good news side of things, the women continued winning in a defeat of George Mason at Auburn Arena. You can check out highlights of the game, here.

Want some information on the defensive coordinator search? Well, unfortunately I don't have any. Gus is being extremely tight-lipped about this whole thing.

AL.com has three reasons why Sean White - if he's healthy - should start the Birmingham Bowl for Auburn. On the flip side, they also have three reasons why Jeremy Johnson should start.

How are the freshmen developing during bowl practices? AL.com took a look at that, too.

ESPN.com has five SEC underclassmen who should stay in school for another year. There's an Auburn player on the list whom every Auburn fan would love to see return.

Finally, I know it's not exactly Auburn-specific and I talk about the subject too much as it is, but I'm still going to mention it because there IS an Auburn connection. Former Auburn defensive back Dell McGee led Georgia Southern to their first bowl victory since the program restarted football in 1981 last night as the Eagles demolished the MAC Champion Bowling Green 58-27. This was the first year Georgia Southern was bowl eligible since moving up to FBS. Dell was carried off the field by his players. Dell is going to make a fantastic head football coach in Division 1 football before too long. He has history as a high school head coach, and has been the running backs coach behind the #1 rushing attack in FBS for the last two years. War Damn Eagle, Dell McGee!
