News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Things will be a bit slow, today. I know it's the first Monday after the season, and we'll have more things on most Mondays, but it's a holiday and I'm going to spend it being lazy.

SOCCER

Another weekend. Another set of victories. Another set of clean sheets. The Tigers are 6-0-0 on the season, and have yet to allow a goal. It's equal to the best start in school history. They were ranked 16th after Week 1 and 11th after Week 2. Let's see if they go higher after this weekend! You can check out some highlights, here.

FOOTBALL

Game 1 is in the books, and the Tigers are undefeated! Here are my initial reactions immediately following the game. I'm actually amazed those thoughts are as coherent as they are.

Tuco noticed some similarities in Auburn's start to this season and the start to a certain other season. Feeling stressed and think the season is already over? You shouldn't be. Go read what he wrote.

In some not-great news, legacy commit Stephen Davis, Jr decommitted from Auburn, yesterday. The Tigers aren't out of it, though. He originally committed to Ellis Johnson's defensive staff, so it wouldn't be shocking if he decides he doesn't like what he sees with how Muschamp & Company operate on the field.

We were told that a lot of freshmen would play against Louisville, and that definitely happened. You can find a complete round-up of them and their stats, here. My initial quick reaction is that Dontavius Russell is a beast and Tim Irvin is going to be great sooner than later.

I know a lot of you are worried about Jeremy Johnson. Gus Malzahn isn't. Rhett Lashlee isn't worried, either. You probably shouldn't be, either. Just reread Tuco's article linked above.

Four Tigers left the game on Saturday with injuries, and it's been a big question on everyone's mind just how they're doing. It sounds like they're all fine judging by what a few players and OC Rhett Lashlee had to say.

What did GameDay Final have to say about Auburn? Well, at least there's no Lou Holtz on there, now.
