News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

HOME ON THE PLAINS

Not going to Atlanta? Staying around town for the weekend? Live out of town and want to come catch some Auburn sports on a weekend when there's no football in town? Well, there's plenty of opportunities to catch the undefeated soccer and volleyball teams this week, and Everett has your information on it all!

FOOTBALL

USA Today re-ranked the Preseason AP Top 25 based on the grammar of SB Nation team site commenters. You people are awesome. Seriously.

You know that late-season collapse down the stretch? I'm sorry. It's my fault. Go here and find out why (and feel free to discuss your own superstitions in the comments).

While Louisville is playing games with just who their starting QB will be, Will Muschamp says Auburn isn't letting that alter how they prepare for the game. I love how he also said he's pretty sure Bobby knows exactly who he's starting in the game.

Auburn's first depth chart of the season will be released tomorrow. Don't read too much into it, though, as it will be subject to change right up until game time. That's particularly true of the defense according to Muschamp.

At least one of Louisville's players is pretty confidence in their chances.

AL.com asks what are the biggest stories going into the 2015 college football season.

Whew, there's a lot of stuff from ESPN. They make their predictions for who they think the offensive player of the year will be. Todd McShay ranks his top 2016 defensive line prospects. Then there's a "cram session/Cliff Notes" preview of the Power 5 conferences. From the SEC Network there's a feature looking inside the sights and sounds of an Auburn preseason practice as a part of their new SEC Inside show to run on Wednesdays.

I've never heard of TheThreeFour.com, but they don't think too highly of Auburn, that's for sure. He really doesn't provide a very credible reason for it to me, either. Oh well, games are this weekend, finally.

As of last night, only one Auburn rookie in the NFL has been cut. I'm sure that number grows, soon (though I'd love it if it doesn't), but right now that's pretty good for our former Tigers.
