News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

BASKETBALL

When Bruce Pearl arrived at Auburn just under three years ago, he promised another #AuburnFast team. We haven't seen that, yet, with all of the depth and injury issues. Now, with a deep and talented roster, the Tigers are preparing to play fast, hard, and pressing all over the court.

EQUESTRIAN

Auburn has fallen to #2 after their loss last weekend, but they can reclaim the top spot this weekend since they'll be hosting #1 Texas A&M this Saturday on the Plains.

SOCCER

#13 Auburn faces #12 Arkansas tonight on the Plains. Get out and support the Tigers as part of the Kicks For MS game. If you can't make it to the game, you can still donate here.

SOFTBALL

Are you wanting to check out the 2016 runners-up ladies of the diamond this fall? Well, the Fall Schedule starts this Saturday, and the Tigers will have four games you can catch.

FOOTBALL

At the halfway point of the season, we're looking back at the first half and grading the Tigers so far. Wednesday afternoon was the offense. Yesterday, it was the defense's turn. Spoiler alert: they're pretty good.

Do you want to know what to watch this weekend? Because we've got the stories on what you should be watching, how to watch it, etc, etc.

Carlton Davis is challenged every week and thinks nothing of it. It's no surprise; Auburn has put him on the toughest of wide receivers going back even to last year when he was put on Laquon Treadwell and others.

After Auburn was near ridiculed for hiring Kevin Steele, James Crepea says an argument could be made that he's the best of the 8 defensive coordinators hired in the conference this off season.

FoxSports.com says Auburn is flipping the narrative with having a strong defense and relying on that more than its offense. That's only a recent flip, since it wasn't until Gus Malzahn's arrival as offensive coordinator that Auburn began to focus on being more of an offensive team than a defensive one.
