News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

Ray Carlin-USA TODAY Sports

BASKETBALL

Yesterday was the ladies' turn for SEC Media Days in basketball. See what Coach Flo had to say about her team and their goals of making it back to the Dance.

SOCCER

The Tigers set a new program record with their 7th straight SEC win last night. Casie Ramsier knocked in two goals - including one in the 89th minute - to pick up the 2-1 victory over LSU in Baton Rouge.

FOOTBALL

Do you need to get caught up on our stories about the Arkansas game? We've got a handy story stream for you, just like every week.

History Repeating goes way back, this week to decipher what's going to happen in this week's game against Arkansas. All the way to The Beginning.

Ryan Sterritt's Week 7 rankings are out! Where do teams in college football rank based on his formula of knockouts, schedule strength, and more?

The story on why Auburn's offensive arsenal doesn't include a shovel pass is pretty funny. Although I've seen the Tigers run the jet sweep forward pitch once or twice.

John Franklin III worked with the first team a lot over the bye. Don't read too much into that, though. Getting more reps for the back-up and resting the starter is fairly normal during bye weeks. I wouldn't not read things into it, either, though. I don't think JFIII is going to be taking Sean's job, but this could definitely lead to some legitimate packages for him.

Gus Malzahn said Kerryon Johnson isn't at 100% just yet during Tiger Talk. I think that may be a bit of coach speak. It may be 100% serious, but I think Johnson will be raring to go in this one.

ESPN discusses the fact that Gus Malzahn - who started as a passing guru - is now a run-heavy coach while Bret Bielema's Arkansas team - normally known for hard-nosed running - is now throwing the ball more. I don't particularly agree with the way the article is worded in parts. He's 100% correct that Gus Malzahn started as a passing coach, but his line "...contrary to popular belief, the focal point is no longer through the air" makes me laugh. I normally have to argue with everyone about Gus' origins because people insist he's always been a zone-read/triple-option type coach.

In "well, this sucks" news, it looks like the majority of the branches of the Magnolia Oak are dead or dying.
