News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

There was a ton of football news, yesterday, along with last night's final home basketball game of the season. So, there were a ton of articles here on College and Magnolia to go along with that.

BASKETBALL

It was Senior Night on the Plains, and the official site featured a video with Cinmeon Bowers about his time as a Tiger.

The Tigers and Aggies played through a tornado warning in the first half of last night's game. The Tigers had a big lead in the 1st half, but at the end of the first and start of the second, the Aggies went on a 17-0 run to take a big lead of their own. Everything started dropping for the Aggies, they killed Auburn on rebounds, and the Tigers ultimately just couldn't hang with the best team in the SEC 81-63.

BASEBALL

The bats came alive in a big way against Alabama A&M, as Niko Buentello picked up a bunch more RBIs and the Tigers cruised to a 15-1 victory. 10 of those runs came in a monster 5th inning.

SOFTBALL

There was supposed to be a softball game last night in Birmingham against UAB. However, the weather changed those plans. It may or may not get made up on 13 April. We'll see.

FOOTBALL

Shortly before spring practice news started breaking, Auburn received the second commitment from a 2018 player. A defensive end from Miami, FL joined QB Joey Gatewood as a part of the 2018 class.

Gus Malzahn met the media Tuesday morning to open Spring Practice. He dropped a few tidbits about injured players, those no longer with the program, and the new coaches. When it was over, WarRoom Eagle had some fun with Malzahn's "Yeah, whatever" comment by Malzahn in his "Zone Read Between the Lines" column.

Auburn quietly added another quarterback to the roster this spring in walk-on JUCO QB Devin Adams. It's hard to see him actually competing for the starting job, but he's there for depth and probably to run the scout team for other mobile quarterbacks Auburn will face.

For a complete wrap-up of pictures, video, observations, and player interviews post-practice, we put together a round-up of it all in one convenient place.

AL.com has the 5 players with the most to gain and 5 players with the most to lose for Spring Practice. Ahhh, the offseason. Where "List of 5" articles are all over the place.

ESPN featured a preview for Auburn's spring. There's not a whole lot of interesting things in there, but it exists. There's also video from ESPN, but this is of AL.com beat writer Brandon Marcello joining Finebaum to talk Auburn.
