News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

How did standout Kasey Cooper spend her summer? The official site asked and she answered.

FOOTBALL

The first preview of the year is up and out! Matt Donaldson gave us the serious preview of the Louisville game. Folks are also using that as a predictions thread, although we'll have predictions coming later!

Tuco took a walk down memory lane and remembered the JetGate fiasco. It was a dark time in the history of Auburn football and for the school itself.

Brandon Marcello of AL.com wrote a very detailed piece on everything about JetGate, yesterday. I recommend checking it out.

Nick Marshall was about as clutch as a quarterback can be. When the game was on the line, not once did I ever wonder if he was capable of leading the Tigers to victory. Can Jeremy Johnson be the same way? We'll find out. Or not. I hope not, actually. I hope we never need him to be clutch as we march to constant victory.

Rudy Ford will likely get in on the action in the return game. That could be a lot of fun. Ford is very fast, and he was a pretty good running back in high school.

ESPN video link time. First is their preview of Week 1 in general in their picks of the week. Oh, and then there's a preview of the first week of the SEC in particular. Now let's dig a little deeper and we've got a video previewing the Auburn vs Louisville game in particular!

In recruiting news, there's a few Auburn targets expected to make their announcements, today. One, RB Elijah Holyfield, will likely not pick the Tigers. That's ok, though, as Auburn is quite happy with their current RB commit. The other is 5* DE Marlon Davidson. His brother is Auburn grad and current staff member Kenneth Carter. There's a good chance he picks the Tigers and could be a huge boost for the Tigers going into the season. He will make his announcement at 11:30am. We'll have something up for you on that as soon as possible if he does commit to the Tigers.

Finally, in former Tiger news, it was a big night for a number of Tigers. Corey Grant reeled off a great untouched TD run against Washington. Cameron Artis-Payne showed why he'll likely be a key player for the Panthers. However, nothing, and I mean NOTHING, beats this Angelo Blackson catch. Yes. Angelo Blackson. Catch. I've seen that it may have been a 2-point conversion (that was called back), but the official NFL Twitter account called it a touchdown, so I initially called it a touchdown catch.
