News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

BASKETBALL

Sure, it was published before yesterday's link dump. But I didn't really notice it because it was in the wee hours of the morning (that's what happens when the author lives in Germany). Drew is back with his This Week in Auburn Hoops!There's really not much to say since we haven't really had much in the way of games since the last one, but that's ok. Get your fill of Auburn Hoops!

FOOTBALL

Daniel Carlson was named the SEC Special Teams Player of the Year. What's funny is that in the tweet by the official SEC account, they forgot to mention that he also had a touchdown run of 20 yards.

Where do Auburn assistants fit in the SEC ranks for coaching salaries? You can find out in the USA Today database. I'm sure LSU fans thought - when we hired him - that we were over paying Kevin Steele. I say he's been worth every penny and then some.

There have been all sorts of rumors that Auburn DB coach Wesley McGriff is linked to the Ole Miss DC job (he was once their DB coach), but sources told the Montgomery Advertiser that this is not the case. Gus said the other day that no one had contacted him about talking to McGriff for any other jobs. He and Freeze are close enough that you'd think they would talk beforehand, too, so I believe this.

One NFL draft scout has made the move on Monty Adams and is now projecting him as a Top 20 draft pick. I'd say he's definitely earned his way up there. He'll go in the first day or two, that's for sure.

Speaking of the NFL, see how Tigers in the NFL fared last week. One former Tiger great was benched for a series for a dress code violation and it didn't end well for his team.
