News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

BASKETBALL

War Eagle, Ladies! The Tigers took down Alabama in the first game of the Iron Bowl of Basketball. They handled the Tide at home to the tune of a 72-59 victory.

He's not rejoining the team to play this semester, but Trayvon Reed is enrolled at the school and will begin workouts to rejoin the team. He'll take a redshirt year and have three more years of eligibility remaining.

BASEBALL

Almost every game will be available via streaming, but 11 Auburn games will be featured on the SEC Network, this year.

GYMNASTICS

I mentioned it before, but now her first article is finally here! Former Auburn gymnast Megan Walker joins our list of contributors to cover Auburn's gymnastics program. Here is her first article for us discussing the 2016 team, the Oregon State meet last weekend, and the Kentucky meet this Friday evening.

Speaking of, the official site has previews of the matchups with #21 Kentucky and #6 Alabama that are coming this weekend. Kentucky is at home, while Alabama will be in Birmingham for the "Elevate the Stage" event.

FOOTBALL

The Season of Murphy series wraps up with a discussion of the lack of "Hurry Up" in Auburn's "Hurry Up, No Huddle" offense in 2015. All of the other struggles (at least on offense) are really what led to this devastating bit. If you want to see all of the articles, they're all collected in a nice convenient story stream for you.

ESPN takes an early look at the secondary situation for SEC schools in 2016. Auburn will return Carlton Davis, Rudy Ford, and Tray Matthews from the starting lineup. No word yet that I've seen on whether Josh Holsey will return after his injury. They also examine the front seven, though we're not sure how Auburn's line will look just yet with no word on Montravius Adams (at least as I type this). Auburn needs help at the linebacker position, but the defensive line could be spectacular.

Mel Kiper Jr weighed in on his opinion of the Tigers who declared for the draft as well as the ones who are sticking behind.
