News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

John Reed-USA TODAY Sports

SOCCER

It was a big weekend for the soccer team, who started out the 2015 season by sweeping their two games out in California. We should have more on that for you, soon.

BASKETBALL

Bruce Pearl compared an Auburn player to Dennis Rodman. Let's hope he just means on the court!

There were a number of big time 2017 and beyond prospects on campus this weekend, too. Check this article out to see just who was expected to be in town.

GOLF

Former Tiger Patton Kizzire won his second tournament of the season on the Web.com Tour. He's doing quite well for himself this season, as he has a nice lead in the Money List for the highest earner on the Web.com Tour this year.

FOOTBALL

The site was pretty busy over the weekend, with a number of posts from Friday through last night. It started with Tuco getting back into the Xs and Os grind and giving us all an intro into Will Muschamp's defensive philosophies and how he likes to use the Buck position.

Gus Malzahn met with the media Saturday afternoon following practice and a short scrimmage. He had a good bit to say about how things are going right now at a number of positions and with a number of players. There's even a Duke update in there!

Emily Rios is still profiling all of the Tigers who are on preseason watchlists. On Saturday she profiled Cassanova McKinzy, who is up for almost every defensive award it's possible to be nominated for given his position.

The Preseason AP Top 25 was released Sunday afternoon, and the Tigers find themselves in the Top 10 for the second year in a row. There are definitely some high expectations around the Tigers this season.

Finally, our position preview series is on the offensive line. There are lots of reasons to be excited about this year's offensive line. Check it out for a quick review of how things stand.

Some of you may have seen Byron Cowart made some tweets that seemed to indicate he was a little unhappy, but then he came back and clarified he just made a freshman mistake. How many of you as grown men and women have been frustrated by something and tweeted or facebooked your immediate frustration without thinking about it? You don't think college students don't do that, too? They do it a lot, and it's kinda sad how much we as grown folks obsess over it.

Devaroe Lawrence has quite a story. You should really read about him and be ready to pull for him when he sees the field(which he will given how much we rotate defensive linemen).
