News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

John Reed-USA TODAY Sports

BASKETBALL

Bad turnovers and too little depth due to injuries were too much for Auburn to overcome against undefeated South Carolina as the Gamecocks drained three pointer in the first half to build a big lead that Auburn could never overcome.

For the ladies, senior Center Tra'Cee Tanner was named the SEC Player of the Week.

FOOTBALL

With the 2015 football season over, I decided to write my post-mortem on just went wrong. Unfortunately, so much went wrong that I'm not going to be able to fit it into one post. So here's my introductory post to my series I'll be pushing over the next few weeks, called "The Season of Murphy."

Kevin Steele was introduced to the press yesterday and talked the talk you would expect from a new defensive hire. I really wasn't aware of his history of connections with Auburn. Hopefully he's really excited to be here and does an excellent job. See his first interview with Rod Bramblett, here.

The Montgomery Advertiser questions whether changes in the way draft evaluations are done will affect which Auburn juniors decide to go to the NFL. The new system gives juniors grades of only 1st round, 2nd round, or stay in school.

One Auburn football player made ESPN's All-Bowl Team for the conference, and that's Auburn's stud freshman defensive back.

Reggis Ball issued an apology for the post-bowl incident with Auburn's equipment manager.

After a questionable 2014/15 bowl season for the SEC, ESPN says that the conference was redeemed with this year's bowl season. The SEC set a record for teams winning bowl games so far.

Ricardo Louis was invited to play in the NFLPA Bowl, a college all-star game that I'm honestly not very familiar with.

How did Tigers in the NFL do in the League's final weekend? Well, CAP and Tre Mason scored touchdowns at almost the exact same moment, so that was pretty cool. Read about that and more!
