BASKETBALL

The Tigers scrimmaged last night. Check out some stats and videos at SECcountry.com. There are some good things in there and some of the highlights should get you excited about the 2016-17 Tigers.

Four of Auburn's meets will be televised live on the SEC Network. See the story, here.

SWIMMING AND DIVING

The Tigers swept the home opener last night against Kentucky. Both men and women are 2-0 during the dual-meet season, so far.

FOOTBALL

We're at the halfway point of the season, and that's the perfect time to examine where the 2016 Auburn Tigers stand, so far.

Javaris Davis doesn't believe he's played to his full potential, yet. Kevin Steele thinks that's a good thing. I do, too, because he's been pretty good for a redshirt freshman playing defensive back for a SEC team. If he continues to improve as a freshman, then his future is bright.

The defensive line has been dominant this season, and that's even though it's only lately that the flashy numbers like sacks have begun increasing. What has been the secret to that success?

Gus wasn't the only one praising the Auburn defensive line on the SEC teleconference this week. After the thrashing they gave his team, Dan Mullen was full of praise for the Tigers' unit. Read about that and what Gus had to say during his portion of the teleconference, here.

For all the success the offense has had, lately, there's still one area it seems to be struggling: opening drives. The offense is gaining confidence and momentum, though, according to offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee. One thing they're going to be working hard on over the break, though, is ball security.

Auburn is on a roll and you would think the Tigers would like to keep it going with that momentum. However, Gus Malzahn says the off week break couldn't have come at a better time. The Tigers need some time to heal some bumps, bruises, and hopefully nothing along the lines of a high ankle sprain.

#Legatron continues to be hilarious on Twitter (he's still nothing compared to Kerryon Johnson, though.

Three Tigers have made SECcountry.com's mid-season All-SEC First Team. Check it out and find out who!

Ok, so, I've never linked to these, before, but has anyone else found it really strange that AL.com has a feature keeping up with how transfers from Auburn's football program are doing?
