News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet.

AUBURN

Six Auburn teams did quite well in the APR arena. And by "quite well" I mean they had perfect scores.

BASEBALL

The official site is asking for you to vote for Anfernee Grier for the Golden Spikes Award. You should do that. Click this link, type in Anfernee Grier and Auburn University. Submit. Win.

EQUESTRIAN

Thirteen Tigers received honors in the SEC's postseason awards. That's quite a feat. The Equestrian Team is in Waco for the 2016 NCEA Championships this week, starting this morning.

SOFTBALL

Kasey Cooper is among the Top 25 finalists for the 2016 USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year. She should definitely make it to the final cut, if not win it all.

Speaking of Cooper, she hit another home run last night in the Tigers' 8-1 victory over UAB. That would have tied her for the team lead with Jade Rhodes, but Rhodes also added a home run in the win.

FOOTBALL

Here is my in-depth review of the 2016 A-Day game. If you haven't already read it, then be warned: it is quite long. I think it topped out somewhere over 2000 words. I tried to really dig into each period and draw out the positives and negatives. I know there's a lot I missed, but it's still pretty full of thoughts.

What does former Auburn WR Ricardo Louis think about the QB situation? One of our commenters found an interview with him on a recent radio station and put it in a FanPost for your listening enjoyment and consideration.

How much money did Auburn spend on the Birmingham Bowl trip? Not anywhere near as much as it has spent on other bowl games in recent years, that's for sure.

We know a good portion of the secondary depth, but Jamel Dean is still pushing hard for a starting job as a redshirt freshman. He was in on a couple of plays in A-Day.

SEC realignment talk? SEC realignment talk! Fueled by Gus Malzahn, himself, too. I'll have more thoughts on this a bit later this morning from something I wrote last night.

Gus and Bo will once again be competing in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge charity golf tournament.

We're not done talking about satellite camps just yet. Former Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville does not believe the current ban will hold up in the long run.
