News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Whew, there's a ton of stuff for Auburn this weekend.

BASEBALL

Former Tiger Tim Hudson joined quite an impressive list of pitchers in baseball, yesterday. I'm going to bet he is definitely a Hall of Famer, some day.

FOOTBALL

Auburn had a big weekend on the recruiting front, picking up commitments from a 2016 wide receiver and a 2017 Athlete. You can look at the star rating of that 2016 wide receiver and wonder what Auburn coaches see in him, but watch his film. He's impressive. Oh, and he was very impressive at Nike's The Opening New Orleans Regional. He wasn't invited to the big event in Oregon, even though he tested as the best wide receiver in New Orleans.

The Kick Six has been up against the Jim McMahon BYU Hail Mary for top plays in college football history on NFL.com. The Kick Six was somehow losing, yesterday, but once Auburn folks on Twitter started picking it up, it swung ahead. As it should. But sure Bama fans, the 2014 Iron Bowl totally erased the Kick Six.

It's getting time for hype videos. Fall Camp opens next week (!!!!!!!), and Auburn has released a hype video for the defense.

The Montgomery Advertiser didn't take a break for the weekend in their 12 Games in 12 Days series. Starting with Friday and rolling through Sunday they covered LSUMississippi State, and San Jose State. It's looking like I'll miss the San Jose State game, which is a shame, because I know that game will be huge for some in the Auburn fan base this season (looking at Mark, from TheAuburner) because of a certain former Tiger coordinator working for the Spartans.

AL.com was definitely not quiet over the weekend, and there are a ton of stories from there. They continue profiling new players with looks at Byron CowartJauntavius JohnsonRichard McBrydeDarrell Williams, and Jeff Holland.

AL.com also continues with their opponent previews, getting to the San Jose State and Kentucky games. The Kentucky game is a Thursday night game, of course. I'm curious now as to whether or not Auburn has ever had two seasons in a row with Thursday night games.

ESPN.com's Alex Scarborough says SEC coaches are digging themselves into deeper holes with their recent remarks in the media. I say the media is just looking for any reason to jump on the SEC after years of SEC dominance on the national scene and twist words and opinions. That may be the subject of further musings a little later this week.

It's old news for Auburn folks, since we reported on it back when it happened, but The Sporting News wrote about the trip of many Auburn dignitaries to an elementary school in Chicago.
