News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

Dakota Sumpter / Auburn Athletics

I apologize for not having anything up other than the link dump, yesterday. I didn't get a chance to pre-write anything Tuesday night, work had me swamped during the day, and I just didn't have a chance to put anything up. Plus, I'm a little burned out with how much I have been writing, lately.

BASKETBALL

So Chuck Person is going to interview at UAB and is probably one of their finalists. That stinks. He's not gone yet, but the chances are much higher.

BASEBALL

Anfernee Grier is putting up monster numbers. He's leading the SEC in a number of different offensive categories, right now. His decision to remain at Auburn is paying dividends, as you have to think his MLB draft stock is skyrocketing. It's not just his offense, either. Grier has made a number of spectacular defensive plays in centerfield over the last few years.

EQUESTRIAN

It's kind of a no-brainer, but Auburn earned the top seed for the NCEA Championships. The Tigers have been #1 all season and have only dropped one contest the entire year, and that was to Texas A&M in College Station back in November. The event will take place two weeks from today in Waco, TX.

FOOTBALL

I have to admit, Herb Hand's labeling of he and Gus Malzahn as Auburn's "Odd Couple" is hilarious and also very true. Personality wise, the two couldn't really be much more different. They're both great football minds, though, and the two of them combined has been a deadly combination on the field, putting up the top offense in the nation two years in a row at Tulsa. And not with a running QB, I might add.

AL.com has articles up on a few Auburn players based on interviews with those players and with the position coaches over the last week or so. First, there's Stephen Roberts and his aim to be "more versatile." Roberts, a local boy from Opelika High School wasn't heard from much as a freshman, but he started seeing more playing time late last season when Tray Matthews was injured. Then there's Tony Stevens, who realizes that in his senior season that this is his time to make an impact and shine. Finally, there's Byron Cowart, who is approaching the 2016 season with a lot more confidence than he had last season.
