News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

Shanna Lockwood-USA TODAY Sports

TOOMER'S CORNER

The new Oaks will be ready for rolling this fall. ESPN has a feature on the Oaks. Unfortunately they also continue to mention [NAME REDACTED]. I really wish we'd just ignore him, but I know that's wishful thinking on my part.

BASEBALL

Part 1 of Kevin's baseball preview is out! He covered the intangibles of a new era with a new head coach starting his first season and Auburn establishing an identity. Part 2 will be coming out today. Or perhaps tomorrow, since there's a lot of basketball stuff today and I'd rather his piece get top billing for most of a day rather than being buried by basketball stuff.

BASKETBALL

Katie Frerking was named SEC Women's Basketball Player of the Week! The Tigers have been on a roll lately and are projected in the NCAA Tournament as of right now. Go get 'em Coach Flo!

GYMNASTICS

Caitlin Atkinson was named SEC Co-Gymnast of the Week, which is unsurprising after her performance to help the Tigers clench the victory over Alabama.

SOFTBALL

The Tigers are up to their highest ranking in team history as they reached #3 in the nation in both major softball polls. People obviously took notice of the Tigers' 87 runs scored in the opening weekend.

SWIMMING AND DIVING

Day one of the SEC Swimming and Diving Championships is in the books, and Auburn is in 1st place! That's a great thing to hear in a sport Auburn used to dominate.

FOOTBALL

Gus Malzahn added another player to the roster yesterday morning with Illinois linebacker T.J Neal committing. He's a grad transfer who had quite the stat sheet last year with 14+ tackles for loss.

The Media Days Schedule is out! Football is almost here! I swear it really is! Ok, not so much, but hey, it's nice to have a better idea of when the landmark days in the offseason will be.

Kodi Burns is back at Auburn and he's happy to be here. For him it was a bit of a no-brainer to come home and rejoin Gus Malzahn and Rhett Lashlee, with whom he's worked before as a player and a graduate assistant.
