News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

John Reed-USA TODAY Sports

BASKETBALL

Iron Bowl of Basketball? Iron Bowl of Basketball. It's on for Coach Flo's Tigers as they take on the Tide in Auburn Arena tonight.

TENNIS

The seasons begin for both men's and women's teams this weekend. The men start Friday against The Citadel. The women will be Saturday against UAB.

GYMNASTICS

Lexus Demers offers advice for the new freshmen getting ready to compete in Auburn Arena for the first time.

SOCCER

There is a 3 minute feature on what the Soccer team meant with their MeguhSTRONG campaign this season honoring the assistant coach who has been dealing with cancer.

FOOTBALL

Look, I got bored, ok? It was lunch, I needed something to put on the site, and I had just discovered that Google had the wrong logos for Auburn and other teams in the SEC. So it led to this quick goofy post.

The Season of Murphy continues (one more post, I think, and it's done), this time with The Duke Williams Saga.

Auburn officially announced the 2016 early enrollees on Twitter, last night. We showed them and played with some thoughts on the numbers they're displayed in because what else can we say at this point? For the offseason is dark and full of terrors (yes, I'm going to continue that Game of Thrones reference this year, too).

Oh, hey, Avery Young announced he's going to declare for the NFL Draft. I'm not shocked, but I really wish he had stayed. Primarily just for the continuity on the offensive line. It's going to be interesting to see if Auburn moves Braden Smith outside or leaves him on the inside at Guard.

The official site has a new contributor in Jeff Shearer. He writes about Rob Pate's address to the Alabama-Mississippi All Star Game and the points he had to make to the young men getting ready to begin their college careers.

ESPN has a ton of features about the next SEC season. A too-early look at skill positionsoffensive line, and then bold predictions for the year. I'm sure there will be many more "way too early" posts over the next few days and weeks.

It's been 25 years - as of yesterday - since Bo Jackson's career-ending football injury. I still remember watching that game and watching that play. It's heart breaking to watch replays now and see Bo unable to get up and to know that it was over with that play. I was only just starting to really appreciate following sports - and Bo in particular - when he was taken away. ESPN has 10 things you need to know about on that anniversary.
