News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

SOCCER

Remember that awesome soccer weekend? Well, the Tigers are up to their highest ranking in program history, ranked highest in the SEC, and AU_Jonesy has some words about their dramatic wins.

BASKETBALL

Bruce Pearl visited Dothan recently and spoke about the course Auburn Basketball is on.

FOOTBALL

The Undercover Barner returns! Peggy's back after a rough (yet awesome) week, last week, and she's here to inform you that reports of Auburn's demise may be a bit premature.

Gus met with the media yesterday and addressed the starting QB, RB, Ricardo Louis' absence from most of last Saturday's game, and the offensive struggles. It's not much, but it's mostly what we've known and/or suspected.

On the subject of those offensive struggles, you really need to read WarRoom Eagle's Xs and Os piece on Auburn's issues against Mississippi State last Saturday. Was it an issue of play calling, or were there perhaps some execution issues, as well?

Tuco counsels us on the subject of patience. I 100% agree with him. I think Auburn has had the perfect storm of "things that can go wrong" in 2015. The team and coaches are perfectly capable of bouncing back from it.

We're used to Gus Malzahn taking 2-3 weeks to figure out his team and then things get wild and crazy in a fun way. Well, we're through four weeks and last week was really almost week 1 as the Tigers are still trying to find their identity with a new set of players on the board.

The main site has BUUUUUUD and Steven Godfrey debating how Auburn got worse this season after such high expectations. It's a mothership article, though, so you should probably avoid the comments.

Auburn isn't the only team to struggle so far in 2015 after high expectations. Oregon has also come on hard times. That's especially true after their utter destruction at home by Utah. ESPN discusses both Auburn and Oregon's months of September.

Auburn's Takeo Spikes was named to the 2015 SEC Football Legends Class. A well deserved honor for a man who was an absolute wrecking crew at linebacker. War F^'in Eagle, Takeo.

The official site has its "Tigers in the NFL" feature up for Week 3. See how the former Auburn players fared.
