The Tigers are in Mexico! The real Cancun Challenge begins today as Auburn takes on Texas Tech. We'll have a "How to Watch" post up for you at some point. It may end up being the Game Thread or just before it. If you want a preview of the tournament as a whole, though, Tuco has you covered.
You know that helps you feel better? Cupcakes. Cupcakes are good for the soul. Hey, the man is a Doctor, so you can say the doctor ordered it!
Who were the players of the game against Alabama A&M and what were the plays of the game? The staff weighs in with some final thoughts on the matter.
In a shock to no one, Daniel Carlson is a finalist for the Lou Groza Award. The sad thing is, I don't think he's going to win it. I think it's going to go to Zane Gonzalez, who has been ridiculously good this season. I have a 2/3 chance of being stoked with the result since Georgia Southern's Younghoe (Young-hway) Koo is also a finalist, but I have a feeling I'm still going to be disappointed.
Speaking of Daniel, have you seen the AL.com article on "Turncoat" Carlson? It's... it's something.
Daniel Thomas has been making an impression in his true freshman campaign. He'll definitely be one of the primary people talked about as a replacement for Rudy Ford at the Nickel. What a journey for a kid who was committed to Minnesota and earned a literal (1) last second offer from Auburn on signing day.
So what's up with Pettway? Well, according to his father it's a "serious nagging injury." He still hopes to be back for the Alabama game this weekend.
Ferg's Film Room takes on the Alabama A&M game. There's at least a good bit more offense in this week's than there was last week!
Tiger Talk was held on Monday night this week with the holiday and Gus talked about the injured players with some new informa... LOL YEAH RIGHT. HE SAID NOTHING.
