News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

FATHER'S DAY

The official site has two good features for yesterday's Father's Day. The first is about the coaching father and athlete son aspect of Auburn diving coach Jeff Shaffer and his baseball player son JJ. The second feature is on softball coach Clint Myers and his coaching sons.

BASKETBALL

Congrats to former Tiger Kenny Gabriel! His Turkish League team won the league championship on Friday.

FOOTBALL

Auburn still needs a Power 5 team to play in 2018 and 2019. We examined the possibilities of just who the Tigers could pick up. Hint: there're a lot of possible options in a bunch of different combinations.

Auburn struggled to replace Jay Prosch last year and it showed. Not that Fulse wasn't effective, but Prosch was something special. Will Auburn have someone like him this season? Early enrollee Chandler Cox is pushing hard to lock up the starting role at Prosch's old position.

There's a lot of question about Auburn's offensive line with the departures after last season. Offensive Coordinator Rhett Lashlee isn't worried and says they know exactly what everyone on the line is capable of.

Could Montravius Adams be ready to have the break-out season we know he's capable of? Rodney Garner says he's close. If he can does - and you combine that with Lawson and Cowart - then Auburn's defensive line could be incredible.

The ALcom VIP 25 hit #16 on Friday and it's a certain Alabama coordinator. No, not the one you're probably thinking of. The other one.

AL.com looks back at this past sports year in Auburn sports and ranks the programs in terms of the year they had.

Prince Tega Wanogho, Jr reported to Auburn and is enrolled in classes. That means all of Auburn's 2015 signees are on campus.

The Sporting News has released their Pre Season Top 25. Auburn is pretty high up there.
