News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

BASKETBALL

It was a bad night in Nashville. Auburn once again had a horrific 1st half and then couldn't overcome it in the 2nd half. 39-22 was the half-time score. Vandy won the second half 34-33. Had the game been that close in the 1st half, maybe the results would have been different.

GYMNASTICS

After their road victory over #12 Oregon State, Auburn has moved up from #10 to #7 in the nation! Looks like the Tigers are picking up right where they left off last season.

FOOTBALL

The day started off with some bad news as 2017 QB recruit Lowell Narcisse of Louisiana de-committed from the Tigers. One of the teams in it for Narcisse originally was Clemson. You have to wonder if maybe he thinks he'll be able to step in immediately for Deshaun Watson in two years rather than dealing with Barrett, Franklin, White, et al. at Auburn.

WarRoom Eagle joined in on the Season of Murphy discussion and talked about the struggles of the wide receivers to pick up the slack of Sammie Coates' departure. Of course, part of that is also because Auburn stopped throwing the ball deep or throwing anything other than quick screens for a while.

ESPN looks at the QB situations in the SEC going into 2016 and no one really knows what the situation will be at Auburn. I doubt we know until just before kick-off against Clemson, now.

An Auburn legacy who was committed and then backed off may now be giving serious consideration to the Tigers, again. That's Stephen Davis, Jr. Personally, I'd love to have him on the Plains and think he'll be an excellent DB.

What did former Tigers in the NFL do during the Wildcard Weekend? There were a few players in all of the games last weekend.
